well, when you bought your computer and installed windows 7 you should have occasionally seen a popup saying "please make a repair disk" at the bottom of the screen...or maybe it is just the manufacturer that im using that does it

If you can't get into your windows 7 to use method one, try method two of this tutorial,

Boot the repair CD, accept any offered repair.

If it won't start boot back in, click through to Recovery Tools list to run Startup Repair repeatedly with reboots.

Next you need to use CD command line to make sure that Win7 is marked Active: Partition - Mark as Active

Then run Startup Repair again repeatedly with reboots to see if it will start. Report back.

Hello pablo70.





The HDD is as good a place as any to start, have a look at the link below for your model HDD.
