so the Mbr code is correct but still can not acces the PC .
I also can not reinstall Windows 7 cause when i click in upgrate I get a message :

Hello Fiton!

To answer your question, I remember that XP would "re-install" over an existing XP and restore all the files to the ones on the CD. Windows 7 will not do that. An "Upgrade" must be a different 7 version than the one installed, like from Home Premium to Professional. That is what the message is trying to tell you, that you can not use the same DVD used to install your version of 7 as an "upgrade".

Windows 7 could not repair your computer: reason "Problem signature7: CorruptRegistry." There are not many things that can corrupt the registry of your computer, but evidently something did. It is most likely you will need to install a fresh copy of 7 on your computer.

But before that, if you have been using the "Restore Point" feature of 7 and have some "Restore Points" saved, you can boot to the DVD and try to restore your computer (and the corrupt registry) with a restore point.

Corrupted files can be caused by a hard drive going bad. Laptop hard drives suffer from heat that can kill them quickly. I would suggest to you to confirm or eliminate this as a possibility by going to the web site of the manufacturer of the hard drive in your laptop, download their hard drive utility, boot to it and let it check your hard drive. One way or the other, you will know.

Please try the "Restore Point" from the DVD and let us know what happens. If you need help with this just ask?

Cheers!
Robert

When doing a startup repair, make sure the find Windows installation is checked and not the restore from image button. There would seem to be no reason the Win 7 partition (or the System Reserved) would not still be active, but if it is not, it needs to be.

Is there a manufacturer's recovery partition on that laptop?

Next time you are in the command prompt, try these commands.

bootrec /fixmbr

bootrec /fixboot

Hit enter after each and wait for a confirmation.

If that doesn't work, maybe someone remembers how to restore the registry, if there is an old copy.

First option if you can't get Win 7 to start is to try a restore operation, which you said would not work. You can't do a repair install, which means starting the upgrade from within Win 7, because Win 7 is not running. You will probably have to boot to the DVD and do a custom install from there.

Are you sure nothing was done to mess with your system, like deleting a partition, or adding/removing a hard drive (I know it is a laptop, but some have two drives), or trying to install another OS? If there was, it might be easier to figure out.

If it matters, SIW2 had a paragon utility that seemed to be able to edit the registry from outside Windows, but I do not remember what it was.

Edit: I did find this, maybe it will help.

I think I understood.
If I install the Xp and reinstall the Windows 7 than it will work ...
("But I am a bit confused cause I installed Windows 7 in other PC Asus k50lj months ago and after i got the black screen of death attributable to Windows Security Updates I reinstalled Windows 7 with no problem in that PC...")
Today I also tried the System Restore but got a message and couldnt finish the Restore .
As soon as I'll try the system restore I ll explain what was the message.
Anyway thanks a lot friends for being so friendly and helpful

The reason you are getting the error message when you try to reinstall is because you are choosing Upgrade which can only be done from Desktop.

Instead boot from the DVD and choose Custom install to reinstall Win7 if you cannot repair the current install using methods given.
