    Rich, thank you for your recommendation for resolving my issues. I could not start the computer in safe mode, and unfortunately I cannot try the other method until I find a Windows 7 DVD/CD. The computer came loaded with the software and without the disks. I've been doing some reserach on getting a disk, but am having some trouble. I live in Lima, Peru, and I bought the computer at a local retailer here. I may have to order one online. Any suggestions?

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

Forgot my windows 7 password


If you have forgotten your Windows 7 password and you are on a domain, you need to contact your system administrator to reset your password. If you are not on a domain, you can reset your Windows password by using a password reset disk or by using an administrator account.

To create a password reset disk, follow the steps mentioned in the Microsoft support page below:
(Note: Before starting with the steps in the following link, make sure that you have selected "Windows 7" in the drop-down menu at the start of the page).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/create-password-reset-disk#1TC=windows-7

To reset your Windows password by using an administrator account, follow the steps mentioned in the Microsoft support page below:
(Note: Before starting with the steps in the following link, make sure that you have selected "Windows 7" in the drop-down menu at the start of the page).
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-in/windows/reset-windows-password#1TC=windows-7

(Important: If you forget the administrator password and don't have a password reset disk or another administrator account, you won't be able to reset the password. If there are no other user accounts on the computer, you won't be able to log on to Windows and will need to re-install Windows.)

To know more about resetting Windows 7 password, refer to the following Microsoft support page:

I have want to setup Windows xp and windows 7 together .Meaning when start up computer have : Windows xp Windows 7 I try to setup two windows ,but i setup windows xp lost windows 7 and setup windows 7...


Not sure what you have done so far. You need to divide your hard drive into two sections. Install XP first on to one section. Then use a program to manage your computer start up, the one I use is called Easy BCD this is a free program and works great. Once you cut your hard drive and install XP make a copy of your start up partition. Install the Easy BCD program and make a back up again. Then Install Win 7. Then on the Win7 side install the Easy BDC program and set up the menu choices. I run a 3 way boot with XP and Ubuntu. Hope this helps Fix Ya up.

Laptop is working fine until the screen goes black


The problem of black screen can also happen in other versions of the Windows. However, the symptoms and effects of the problems in all operating systems are almost same. For instance, when a user starts his Windows, everything goes fine. But when he logs into it there awaits a black screen instead of the normal desktop layout. An average computer user finds it very disturbing and has no clue how to fix Windows 7.
However, the best way to find a solution to this problem is to fix the registry errors in your computer which become the cause of all major Windows errors and crashes. The registry in Windows 7 is a very important component of the entire operating system and it stores information about the Windows settings. If these settings are not adjusted properly then there start to appear strange computer problems such as Windows 7 black screen.
