Hi there, my name is Paul and I'll be assisting you.

Just a couple questions first.

1. can you give me the model number of your laptop? It should be on the underside of the laptop.

2. What version of Windows are you running? Vista, 7, 8?

3. Do you have either a recovery disk or Windows disk?

Hello! I am IT Miro and I will assist you on this question.



It seems that something has happened to boot files which are needed to properly load Windows 7. Since you have Windows 7, you can fix the problem easily.

First, restart your computer and then keep pressing the F8 key rapidly until you see the Advanced Boot Options menu which looks like this:

Once you see that menu, select the Repair Your Computer option and press Enter. Wait for a while and follow the on-screen instructions. You should get to the window that has several repair options, including Startup Repair, as shown on this image:

So, click on Startup Repair which should fix all found startup problems.

Once it has finished, your computer should restart and operate normally.


However, if it is still the same, repeat the instructions to go back to the System Recovery Options window, but now select System Restore:

When you click on System Restore, follow the on-screen instructions where you can choose one restore point based on a date to revert system settings back to that date (when all worked fine). Wait for the process to finish and it will automatically restart a computer. Hopefully, the problem will be gone. Don't worry about your personal files as they won't be affected by System Restore.

I hope this helps! If not, let me know and I will check further options.


Regards,
IT Miro
