Windows 7: computer crash

windows 7 64 bit
computer crash

i autually have two questions.fist how can you tell if your computer is 64 or 32bit. I went to boot up my computer one day and it starts to boot up and then freezes in a sectiion that says the following:

No Bootable device --- insert boot disk and press any key.

I was able to get into the boot menu by hitting F12... it showed the following information:

1. hdd
2. cd/dvd
3. usb memory
4. fdd
5. lan

(enter setup)

ok i bought this computer from my buddy for 200.00

he never gave me any disk or someone out there able to help me boot and recover my computer. I was told to download a window 7 recovery boot disk and it would work, but don't seem to be able to find one. I was hoping someone might have a boot disk recovery disk they might let me copy.

any and all help will be greatly appreciated...

Hi dennisdj,
_To tell if your PC is 32-bit or 64-bit simply go to control panel and search for system then click it and you should see here mine is 64-bit: and for the second problem it is really hard to find a fix or that problem if you browse the same topic as yours it will aways end up with no fix so i recommend dong a refresh or a fresh install of your PC.

Windows 10 Pro X64

Your computer is trying to boot from the network (PXE) because it can't find a bootable hard drive. Try running chkdsk and SFC from the Recovery Console.

How to run chkdsk or System File Checker (SFC) from the Recovery Console
  • Boot your Vista or Windows 7 installation DVD
  • When you see "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD", press Enter.
  • At the "Install Windows" screen, click on Repair your computer at lower left
  • At the System Recovery Options screen, make note of the drive letter assigned to your boot drive (normally C: ) and click Next
  • At the Chose a Recovery Tool window, click on Command Prompt. You will be sitting at X:\Sources directory.
Run chkdsk or SFC
  • If you did not note the drive letter of your boot disk, you can enter bcdedit and look at the osdevice line to see what it is.
  • For chkdsk, type chkdsk c: /r and press Enter (use the letter from above if not C: ).
  • For sfc, type sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows and press Enter (use the letter from above)
  • Let either run to completion undisturbed.
Vista or Windows 7: If you don't have a install DVD, you can download a legal copy here:
Windows 7 Direct Download Links
Windows Vista Direct Download Links

Make sure you get the same version you have installed: 32 or 64 bit; Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate.
