still having problems with startup

hi everyone... i was reading the post of this guy who had a similar problem as mine (thereaperwaits)...he quotes: "The computer reboots itself every time it gets to the windows logo, and upon restart I get the windows has failed to start' message, which it then asks me to repair... " after reinstalling the ]OS everything was fixed.... so the deference with my case is that after rebooting windows asks me to repair and so i do in both ways u did recommend ( OS DVD and startup option)... the result ... nothing got fixed ... so i was using the windows seven trial version and it was working perfectly.... now im using windows seven ultimate x64 evaluation copy and im having this annoying problem.... i did reinstall the OS and i keep getting the same situation... can anyone help me?... by the way i already asked microsoft and the just answered that maybe i got to contact the computer brand support for compatibility issues... :S
