Windows 7: Windows 7 - HP Laptop G61 110sa not booting into Windows

Windows 7 - HP Laptop G61 110sa not booting into Windows

Hi there

Quite recently i have experienced a bit of trouble booting into my windows 7 from my laptop. The problem starts as soon as i turn on my laptop, as i am left with a totally blank screen which is present for about 5 minutes then an error message comes up stating "windows failed to start, a change in software could be the problem" then it gives me the option to repair which i have done then it states again "windows failed to start etc..." it then asks me to insert a windows installation disc which i have done, but this process doesent seem to work as i have no image restore disc. status: 0x000000f is on this error message along with Info: the boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible.

i have also downloaded a PW CD to see if i have an active 100MB Partition in which the only active partition is 199MB *.

iam really unsure what to do from here, any help would be great

thanks in advance
