Problem with Start Up Repair, Win 7 Home

A friends grandkids was playing with her Toshiba laptop. Now when she turns it on the screen says, Start-up Repair, and she can't do anymore with it. She does not have a Win 7 dvd.
Any ideas on how to get past this screen and log into the laptop?

Thank you for your help.

7 x64 Ultimate

If you can download Minitool Partition Wizard on another computer and burn to a disk (possibly USB thumb drive) you could boot to that and try to repair the Master Boot Record. This has been a frequent savior for me and the tool is widely respected on these fora.

You can also d/l a free copy on Windows 7 to repair with - it will just expire: Brink's Tutorial.
