Windows 7: ASUS Win7Home Reboot loop or black screen. Wont start

01 Aug 2014   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
ASUS Win7Home Reboot loop or black screen. Wont start

First of all I'd like to apologize for every grammar mistake I will make as english is not my native language.
Secondly, I want to assure you that I have read multiple similar topics, which none of helped me or I am just not as technically advanced to handle the vast sea of actions and information provided, but I have done more than a few things.

But lets start with the problem:

I was playing a game while listening to music and surfing through youtube meaningless videos when the screen froze. I tried to CTRL+ALT+DELETE to end any of the processes so maybe it would relief laptop of any extra graphical burden, anyway it failed, computer didnt respond to any type of commands, nor the previously mentioned CTRL+ALT+DELETE nor ALT+F4 or ALT-Tabbing into desktop screen.
One thing led to another I pressed once the power button, screen gone black but the music kept playing for some reason. Usually it hibernates and after pressing it again goes to login screen, which did not happen this time. With little choice to make I have pressed the power button for longer period of time so it would shut the system down, and then the nightmare began.

System boots then shows me two options: start normally or start Windows Repair, first results in loading up the a quick flash of blue screen (I cannot see whats written in it) the second one results in Windows loading files then just going into black screen with a cursor on it. In addition keyboard commands are not responding, I cannot enter start menu or anything.

I have tried booting from recovery DVDs using ESC key on startup or using boot priority but with no results whatsoever or the same ones i had booting from HDD, also, spamming F8 at startup to get into system tools with little result, meaning:

Computer Repair - black screen with a cursor
Safe Mode - Reboots after loading
Safe Mode with network - Reboot after loading
Safe Mode With Command Prompt - Unresponsive command prompt

Returning to last known good configuration - Reboot after loading
and on and on...

I have my Recovery DVDs, I'm pretty sure I have my recovery partition as I have bought a laptop with a Windows already installed and in addition I have already recovered the PC twice to day-1 state, just to clean it up in the past.
What I dont have is: an access to another computer with 64bWin7, Windows CD/DVD, Repair Disk.

I am ready to wipe it clean, theres not much in it that I cannot recreate, re-photo or redownload, it will just take time I will gladly give to make it work.
Only thing is, either I cannot see something obvious or my ability to reset the system is to say the least not up to par, so I would ask to try walk me through any ideas you have that might work and a simple gamer would not understand.

Thanks in advance

Everything that can be done is here for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start including rescuiing your files to run Recovery or do the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Use the disk for repairs which is more stable. Once you clear any infection, then do the repairs in order specified. Startup Repair should tell you its running System Restore and SFC but if not run those yourself from the Options list and Command Line as also given in tutorial.
