computer wont start up

i had a problem with my computer. i had the system progressive protection virus so i had to get into safe mode to do a restore point but when it started up i noticed that didnt work so i shut it down to fix another day. now i cant get back into safe mode. i have tryed to start windows normaly but that didnt work so i have tried safe mode, safe mode with networking and safe mode with comand prompt. but everything come up black screen before the login screen and nothing els happens. i have tried crt alt del and ctr shift esc but nothing happens. i have even tried to boot my second harddrive that has windows vista on it and i still get the same problem. i do NOT have the windows 7 64 bit disk... is there any way to fix this?

Re: computer wont start up

In case you can download a large ISO file and burn it to a DVD, here's a list of links to a number of the official ISO images for Windows 7. Perfectly legal to use for instance to attemt a repair of your existing installation. http://www.w7forums.com/official-win...ds-t12325.html Can also be used to make a fresh installation that can later be activated with a corresponding key.

Re: computer wont start up

To add to what mkk said,

1) if you have access to a Windows 7 machine that is the same bit/release version (say 64bit with SP1) you can create a System Repair Disc on that system to fix the one you are having problems with. Just hit "Start", then in the search box type "System Repair Disc", and pick the top option.

2) on the same note, the install discs also include a system repair option too, so you can use the discs mkk linked to as well.

3) another option is to download a boot disc called "Hiren's BootCD" (currently @ v.15.2, but any of them will do). You'll have to search for it though. The reason I mention this disc is that it includes a mini XP, or what's called a Barts PE version of XP on the disc. Once that is loaded you can run Registry Editor PE 0.9c to load a remote registry, in this case the one from you Windows 7 install, and edit out items from your Startup list just as if you were doing so from within the Windows install (see the first post on THIS page for locations to look). Just put a semi-colon ( ; ) in front of anything you want to edit out, and my advice, do so for pretty much everything. Once you get back into Windows just remove the ; from each line you want to add back in until you are satisfied with the way things are running.

It's a bit misleading as the OP posted the thread in the wrong forum, but they are using Windows 7 64bit (as per the very last sentence in their post).
