windows 7 will not start

First you need to try safe mode and check if you are able to boot to the system....
If not then ...

Note this issue is caused due to the boot file corruption and in order to troubleshoot this issue we will run chkdsk from Win RE (Windows Recovery Environment )mode and check for the issue, to do that follow the below steps.

To run check disk, you have to have Windows 7 DVD, boot the computer to Win RE from the elevated command prompt, and try to do a CHKDSK. You can follow these steps to run CHKDSK :

1) Use the Windows 7 DVD to start the computer in Windows Recovery (WinRE).

2) In WinRE, open a command prompt. To do this, follow these steps:

On the Install Windows screen, select the appropriate Language to install, Time and

currency format, and Keyboard or input method options, and then click Next.

3) Click Repair your computer.

4) Click the 7 installation that you want to repair, and then click Next.

5) Click Command Prompt.

At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:

chkdsk drive: /f and chkdsk drive: /r
