Windows 7: Can't start Windows 7

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit SP1
Can't start Windows 7

Hi I have just joined this community and I don't even know if this is the right place to post this thread. But here it goes... this is my problem:

Windows 7 cannot start neither in safe nor in normal mode. The system starts and automatically goes to Startup repair no matter wich option I choose (safe mode, normal mode,...). None of the repairing tools is working. Every system recovery options leed to a shut down or a restart and more of the same. Please help!

At least I wish I could save some important files I have there!

Thanks in advance

do you have the original cd? if so you could boot from cd and then do the repair option from there
and when did your computer starts to act like that?. need to watch any programs you curently install etc

MS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit SP1

Thanks for the reply kucing13

I have also tried that, as well as the "disconect perifericals and reboot" thing but the same happened. I think I have tried everything, even the newest Recovery Disc avaliable.
I am working on a way to backup my files (even if I can't access them correctely) so I can format the pc after, but a solution to fix the startup files would be a great help and it wold make my job easier.:)

Download a copy of Ubuntu and use the Live CD option...this will allow you to access/backup any files that you need to save. Then do a clean install.. Let us know how it goes...
