Windows 7: Blinking screen on windows startup screen after an update

Blinking screen on windows startup screen after an update

So I turned off my computer today with shutdown and install new updates. This was the last thing I could do before my computer now won't start.

When I then restarted my computer I got to the screen where you log on to your windows with password. There was no box to input my password and then my screen started to blink. I restarted and the same thing happened. I tried starting my computer in safe mode, but the same thing kept happening. I tried to startup repair and recovery from a selected date but this did not work: startrep.exe stopped working and got error messages that it couldnt find files to go back on (somthing about it not finding the files on a spesific adress).

So now i am stuck with an unfixable computer, and I really dont want to wipe it either, nor do i know much about the recovery disk or how to make one.

I did some research on the forums but I did not find a solution exept for wipe. I hope someone knows somthing more than me and is able to help and fix my problem

WIN 7 Home Premium x64

I had this problem today - see my earlier thread. Contact microsoft support (they are aware of this issue), they will ring you back and hopefully guide you through a solution. Before contacting MS Support, I was about to create a live ubuntu CD to bypass win7 and copy all my files to an external disc by following this guide, Use Ubuntu Live CD to Backup Files from Your Dead Windows Computer

Really? I had the same problem, but I thought it was just because I had installed two hard drives into my computer and my computer got confused regarding where it was supposed to boot from.
