Windows failed to start
Hi, new to this forum and didn't know if I should of made a new thread.
I have a problem with windows 7 failing to start.
The computer reboots itself every time it gets to the windows logo, and upon restart I get the 'windows has failed to start' message, which it then asks me to repair. Which I have tried several times. The computer runs fine as I am using it now (boot from Unbuntu CD).
Has anyone come across this problem yet?
Just moved my computer from one house to the other, it stays on for days on end and I only restart when I need to, so chances are something I installed has messed it up but I cant think off what.
Only thing I have installed that I can remember is latest nVidia drivers, but others have not had any problems, have they?
Normally I would say oh well and just wipe over it but one of the files on there I would rather not loose.
Appreciate the help dudes and any suggestions.

Hi, thanks for replying.
Windows will not start at all so there is no way I can get to the desktop to run the repair install. I have tried booting to the disk and doing the repair install that way but it says I need to be logged into windows.
Is there a command prompt I can use to get it to repair the install?
Thanks for your help thus far.
