Windows 7: Computer will not boot properly after powering off during an update!

Computer will not boot properly after powering off during an update!

So I have a HP laptop running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit that turned off during an update not to long ago. I have been trying to get it fixed but I have ran out of options and need some other peoples help. After a long boot time to the login screen and after I get logged in, I can do nothing on my desktop. It lags and freezes like crazy. Then when I try to get in via Safe Mode, it just restarts. Can anyone help me get it back to what it was before? Also, I do not have the discs for it because I never made a disc of it.

Any help?

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Have a look at this tutorial, which explains how to access Windows 7's advanced boot options.

Advanced Boot Options

By tapping the F8 key at startup you can access these options and you need to choose Last Known Good Configuration.

Once you get your computer up and running you need to create a set of recovery discs as a matter of urgency. Creating a system repair disc would also be helpful.
