Windows 7: computer won't start

computer won't start

My laptop decided not to start up today. It shut down last night normally, today it keeps getting stuck on "starting window". I tried safe mode, but it gets stuck at starting windows. I tried starting from disk, it says loading files then it goes start to the starting windows and gets stuck. I tried pressing f8 but there is no repair computer option. What is going on. Did my ssd die?

okay, if you have a windows 7 installation disk (assuming your on windows 7) boot from it and take the recovery option! then use Command prompt to perform a checkdisk (usually fixes startup problems for me)

chkdsk /f

Boot the Win7 DVD Repair console or burn and boot a Win7 Repair CD: System Repair Disc - Create

Click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times with reboots, which it may need to repair or rewrite the MBR if necessary. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

Check Disk, System File Checker and most all other tests are automated in Startup Repair.

Run it regardless of whether it finds an OS to repair and offers you a Repair when you boot in.
