oops! I didn't notice the "d" before edit. I'll have to either type it out by hand or post a photo of it. I'm not sure how I could take a screen snapshot in command prompt. I should have it by this evening. Thanks for all your patience and help!

Sounds like you might have been one of the lucky few who got a Win7 Installation DVD with your Asus.

Boot it to see if it has the "Install Now" button on second screen. If so, instead first choose "Repair My Computer" in the bottom left corner, see if it finds an installation to repair, accept any offered repair. (The Repair console may also be on your Advanced Boot Tools list accessed by tapping F8 at boot.)

If it fails to start, boot back into Repair, click through to Recovery Options list to run Startup Repair repeatedly to see if it will start. Startup Repair If not, make sure Win7 or it's 100mb boot partition are marked Active then run Repairs again x3: Partition - Mark as Active

Startup Repair automates System Restore which might be able to get you back before whatever caused your bluescreen, but if it doesn't offer it you can also try it from the Options list on Repair console. System Recovery Options

If Win7 won't start, you can copy out your files using this method if your Win7 partition is not scrambled: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

Then if F9 again won't boot and run full Facctory Recovery, you can wipe your HD to clean reinstall with the Recovery DVD following the steps given here to get a perfect clean reinstall: re-install windows 7

If an apps disk wasn't included then you'll no longer have the Asus utlities and bloatware, which is a much superior cleaner install. However if you want them you'll have to order Recovery Disks if they didn't also provide them or you didn't make these disks when you set up your computer.

Thanks boyans. Strange that they would provide DVD media for a machine that has no DVD drive.

In that case, I would write the supplied DVD to flash stick using another machine: Install UltraISO trial version, on File menu open ISO, on Bootable menu choose Write Image, Format, Write. Boot stick under USB or HD's.

To try the repairs more immediately, reboot and tap F8 key to see if Repair My Computer console is on the Advanced Boot Tools menu. There might even be a Factory Recovery listing in the Recovery options list.

I used a neighbor's computer because the other computer in this house doesn't have a card reader. It's a custom built desktop but he never got around to installing a card reader. Go figure. Anyway, I did my best at interpreting the UltraISO program and I may have been able to load the right stuff on to an SD card. I ended up making an ISO from the DVD and then "extracted" to the SD card. What I ended up with is one file labeled "Boot.WIM." It's about 144mb. I'm hoping the SD will work because I don't have a USB flash drive (lost it). If I had one then I wouldn't need to mess with the neighbor's computer. What a big, complicated mess this has become

I've went through that a few times. I never had any success. I was beginning to wonder if they just put it there to make me feel better but doesn't actually function

Ok, somehow I was able to boot into Windows normally. It's kind of weird, actually. But I still need to restore or repair because this has happened before and I just need a clean slate to start from. Is there now another method I can use within Windows to do the restore (back to factory condition)? It seems I should simply be able to select the option within Windows to do a complete restore back to original, factory condition. Maybe I'm just trying to use too much common sense :P

I was trying to boot from the removable disk drive (I changed boot sequence in the BIOS) but it was gonna have none of that I guess. I wonder if that drive is even applicable.

You should be able to write the DVD ISO to a card. Just extract the ISO using Imgburn, write to card using UltraISO, boot it to Install. If not borrow or buy a 4gb flash stick.

Did you follow the steps given earlier for UltraISO: on File tab Open ISO, on Bootable tab Write Disk Image, Format card, then Write.

It sounds like you need to clean reinstall to overcome the problems you're having. Just follow the steps given in earlier post to get a perfect install: re-install windows 7

Keep us posted.
