I take it you cannot boot into windows.

Any error messages when you try?

Restart your computer. Start taping on the F10 key. This should take you directly to System Recovery. Just keep selecting Recovery when prompted. Reinstall Windows to factory state.
I believe this is what your asking for...correct?

Dear Tyi469,
Now that you are at Command Prompt, the best command you can give is
sfc /scannow

This will automatically scan and repair even the protected windows OS!


regards,
sree

If your not entering the Recovery Manager window, you might not have a Recovery Partition on your HDD. In this case, you'll need Windows 7 Recovery software. Is your computer a Sony?
