Windows 7: Windows keeps looping on start up. AAAHHHH! Help! I'm getting DIZZY!

My OS is 8.1 64 Bit (I'm helping a friend with Windows 7 Home Prem)
Windows keeps looping on start up. AAAHHHH! Help! I'm getting DIZZY!

I'm getting really dizzy watching this thing going in circles!! I am trying to repair a friend's Gateway NE56R (Acer) laptop. It has Windows 7 Prem loaded on it. I have the set of 4 Recovery discs, 1 System Disc and 1 Language Disc, they are all Factory Discs, not self made recovery discs. When I turn on the PC it shows the Gateway Logo then it flashes a small white line in the far upper left hand corner of the screen, then next it is followed by "Starting Windows" then it goes straight to the Windows Error Recovery screen. It just loops back to that screen over and over. I tried using the recovery discs using both the full recovery and the save the data recovery options. It goes all the way through the whole process of loading the discs one by one, then it asks for the Start Up disc last but not least the language disc. When it is done it reboots the PC right back to the Windows Error Recovery screen. I tried picking the safe modes, well I tried several choices on the Recovery screen, such as Safe Mode, Normal... But so far nothing seems to work. I've managed to bring up a page with the choices of Windows 7 and "Run A Memory Test", I tried both. The Memory test says it does not find any problems. Then it boots up to the Windows Recovery Error screen. I might mention the last ones to use it before it had problems were a 6 and 8 year old. Could they have somehow gotten a virus or malware to cause the start up problem?

Windows is boot looping.
I'm not really sure what this is, but I'll try to provide as much detail as possible. About two years ago or so I set up a dual boot (Ubuntu and Windows) just for fun. I enjoyed messing around with Ubuntu because I thought it was fresh and new to me. That doesn't have anything to do with the...
