Windows 7: Problem with PC

Problem with PC


Well my friend is facing some issues with his pc.
He's got Win 7 installed.
Today he was starting his pc but as soon as he did that it rebooted.
So he tried again. But again there was the same issue. It kept rebooting as soon as it would start up.
And now it's not even starting up anymore. What could the problem be?

Has he access to a Windows 7 Installation Disc?
BTW you had a problem here:
that was four weeks ago. Is it now resolved as you didn't post the outcome? Gets a bit fruustrating when someone tries to help and gets no feedback!

He needs to get access to one as I think all he can do is to boot up from the installation DVD and do a repair. I don't know any other way. Gone are the days of using a boot up floppy

Dual-boot: Windows 7 HP 32-bit SP1 & Windows XP Pro 32-bit SP2.

I would say that you need to reinstall Windows.

Boot the Win7 DVD Repair console or Repair CD, accept any offered Repair. If it won't start, boot back in and click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times until it starts.

If it still won't start, make sure WIn7 is marked Active using DISKPART from the DVD/CD Command Line: Partition - Mark as Active then run Startup Repair again x3.

On the possibility that the OS is unbootable due to infection, try booting, updating and then running one of the bootable AV scans: If it cleans up an infection, try Startup Repair again x3.

If this won't work, you can copy out your files using this method: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then find an installer for your licensed version and clean reinstall after wiping the HD to overwrite any possibly infected code: SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
