Windows 7: HELP! Boot to system recovery not working!!

HELP! Boot to system recovery not working!!

my windows 7 system is not booting. i was playing with some mobo settings (asus software suite) and the system crashed. for some reason it's stuck on a black screen with two options, "repair windows" or "start windows normally". no matter what option i choose, it keeps restarting and going back to the same spot.

i read in another post to hit F8, to take me to the system recovery option. When i hit F8, it takes me to a blue screen that asks me what boot order i want : a-my hard or b-my cd drive. i have choosen both options several times, and it takes me right back to the black windows repair screen.

please help, i have very important unbacked up files and just want to get to my last known good config.

thanks in advance....JJ

Do you mean bios settings?

Go back into bios setup and reset to defaults.
