Can you generate a System Repair Disc - Create?

If not download and burn to DVD or write to flash stick the installer provided in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Boot into System Recovery Options to run System Restore to a point before the problems began.

If this fails try running SFC -SCANNOW Command from Win7
or if necessary SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

If these fail try using the provided installer to run a Repair Install.

If this fails then run Factory Recovery from Windows or using the hotkey at boot: HP Recover Windows 7 Operating System Using HP Recovery - HP Customer Care (United States - English) or run the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.
