Windows 7: Problem with startup!

Windows 7
 
 

It does the scan when you unplug the computer and it scans files. I don't remember it's exact name, sorry.

The repair tools the computer gives me are startup repair and formatting the computer.
When I put in the repair CD, I also have System Restore and the command prompt.

The computer automatically runs the startup repair when it boots, and it fails. I can give you the details it gives if you want. I can choose it over and over from the other options menu, but the startup restore always fails.

Well then did you run the boot repair commands, and if those fail the final command to rewrite the MBR?

Without quotes: "bootrec.exe /fixboot" followed by "bootrec.exe /fixmbr"

reboot

if those don't work "Bootsect.exe /nt60 all /force".

Did the "Bootsect.exe /nt60 all /force", it said succesfull, but still the same thing when I boot normally.

Boot back into the WIndows 7 DVD Repair console and run Startup Repair repeatedly

If it still says it can't repair, then try the other set of bootrec commands given. They actually needed to be run first to try to fix the mbr, before rewriting it.

Send us a screen shot of Disk Management.

Use the Snipping Tool from the start menu.

If it is finding an OS to repair when you boot into Win7 DVD>Repair My Computer, then it can be started up.

You need to run Startup Repair repeatedly.

If this fails, run the bootrec commands given and attempt restart, then if fails try the bootsect command.

if fail, try Startup Repair again repeatedly.

Windows is loading files... screen,
That Vista-like bar,
Startup repairer tries and fails at fixing problem.

If only I could restore those system points.
Can you contact your computer manufacture and ask them for recovery disk? Just wondering.

With Vista your sposed to make your own recovery disks as soon as you get it, i think you MAY be able to ask Manufacturer for it, but not entirely sure.
