Is there a signal to the monitor? Any error messages or output at all?

Is the fan spinning inside?

The error is because the OS won't start up since the boot drive has been compressed. I gave you the fix earlier. Theog provides a screenshot showing where the checkbox needs to be changed after browsing to it from the booted Win7 DVD REpair console or Repair CD.

If worse comes to worst you can always reinstall the OS with an installer of your version, or Recovery Disks.

We won't quit if you don't.
This one may be help as well.
Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console
