Windows 7: I can't boot windows 7 64-bit, tried every possib solus for a beginner

I can't boot windows 7 64-bit, tried every possib solus for a beginner

Just like the title said, I can't pass through the windows screen when I boot my Laptop ( boot -> windows screen -> (after like 15 mins) -> return to booting (automatic) -> infinite).... and I'd love to put my spec and info for my laptop but I can't. I haven't used my laptop for like a week.

Here's the things that I tried:

First, I tried this "recovery mode". But every time I try, only thing I see is this blue back ground ( not the blue screen of death). I don't see any window or message, just a cursor and this blue background. Funny thing is I can still move my cursor. ( One time I just decided to wait till the window appears, exactly for like 11 hours, no window appeared.)

Next, I tried the safe mode ; all 3 safe mode options (network, without network, just safe mode, I'm not sure if I'm right but it goes like that). With the safe mode, I can pass through the windows screen, but that's it. Only thing I see is the black safe mode background ( the back ground with words in each 4 corner, and I think one in the middle). Same thing with the Recovery mode, nothing appears even after waiting for ridiculously long period; only the black back ground.

After that I tried every other options in the advanced booting options ( I don't know the exact name).But all of them showed similar or same results as other 2 steps that I listed above.

I also tried the reboot disk from windows 7. I used my friend's PC to make one. Showed same results as " recovery mode". Blue background with no window.

After trying the reboot disk, I tried the official windows 7 CD. Tried the recovery option first that comes with the CD, but showed same results as "recovery mode"; Blue background. So, I tried the "Download" button. Instead of just the blue background, this time there was a sentence in the middle. It went like " preparing installation" (I used windows 7 disk from other country, so I don't know the exact sentence).
I waited like 5 hours and still no progress, just blue "preparing installation" background.

Any help will be GRATEFUL.......

Work through these steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start
which try everything that can be done to start it leading up to rescuiing your files to run Factory Recovery from boot or disks, or getting the superior Clean Reinstall.

You'll need to be able to boot a disk which failure is 90% of the time due to user error: How to Boot your Computer from a Bootable CD or DVD. If this fails set HDD to boot first in BIOS setup, tap the one-time BIOS boot menu key at boot to trigger disk. Does it prompt to "Press any key?"

If you've tried everything to boot a disk and still no luck, try Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS.

You can also as a last resort rescue your files as shown in steps using Paragon disk which will boot itself, then wipe the HD after testing HD using HD maker's extended CD scan from option given for Quick Wipe. This will force installer to boot itself.
