Windows 7: Computer will not boot in any mode

Computer will not boot in any mode

My laptop just shut itself down saying something about it being damaged if it didn't. I didn't see the error myself someone else was on it at the time. It will not boot in any mode, safemode it gets stuck at random drivers it won't even boot from my OS disc to repair. It will load all the files from the disc then it shows the initial Windows start screen then is just black with the mouse pointer. Any ideas what's going on?

Computer will not boot after sleep mode
Hello, I've recently upgraded Windows XP to Windows 7, and just last night I put my computer in sleep mode. It seemed to be fine, but it acted weird, it actually completely shut off, then back on. I just thought it was a weird bug, so I just took power from it overnight. When I tried to boot...
