Windows 7: Windows will not start

Windows will not start

Recently I was playing a game and the computer froze so I did a hard shut down (stupid idea) and now windows will not load. I've been getting a dozen different errors, to list a few 0x00000e9, 0x0000102. I used to be able to get to advanced boot options by pressing F8 but now it won't even load. When it did load before, I did an automatic startup repair which was no help and tried chkdsk /r c:, d:, etc and it didn't let me perform any of those operations. Now when I turn it on it is very inconsistent. Sometimes it will bring up a windows loading screen and then simply go black after a little, sometimes it will say I need to insert a recovery disc or a windows 7 disc (I don't have either of those, unfortunately) and give me an error message which I listed above, or sometimes it will just remain black. Help would be greatly appreciated, and thanks for reading!

Hi,

On another computer:

1. Download the correct ISO that matches your version of Windows 7 here
2. Write the ISO to a blank DVD using this and the option shown below

Now, on the faulty computer, boot from this DVD to perform a Repair Install using this guide:

Repair Install

Yes you can, but the USB must be a FAT32 drive. You can look up how to convert a regular USB into FAT32 on various sites through google.
