Turn on the computer.

Press F8 every few seconds.

You should get a screen with a ton of choices.

Choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt.

Write me back when you're this far.

    After getting into Safe Mode with Command prompt it will ask for your Administrator Password.

    Just press enter. (hopefully you didn't set one)

    then type:

    chkdsk /r

    press enter

    A message will pop that says your drive is locked, blah, blah, blah.

    Just press the Y key, then enter.

    Press control+alt+del

    Check through the different tabs at top, one of them will give you the option to shutdown the computer.

    Power the computer back on and start Windows normally, you should see a box that says something about "Disk Checking".

    Don't touch the computer, just let it do it's thing.

    Hopefully that's all we'll have to do to get you back on track.

    Let me know if you get stuck.

Troubleshooting 101


Fix common PC problems Having trouble with your computer? You've come to the right place. Even if you don't know a computer language (or want to), you can solve several common PC problems on your own.
F1 is magic: Get help on your PCtroubleshoot.jpgIf you can’t figure out how to complete a particular task in your software program—and you’re using a PC—the most important shortcut to know is the F1 key. Just push it while the program—Word, Excel, or whichever program you’re using—is open and active, wait a moment, and the Help window specific to your active program will appear. The F1 key works with almost all Microsoft products, so it’s a helpful starting point for a wide variety of problems.
In this article, we offer many ways to do what you need to do in Windows 7 and Windows Vista. Often, there may not be a Help topic for Windows XP, but the process is often the same as in Windows 7 or Windows Vista. The only difference is usually where to find the link in Control Panel. Most often, it’s just a matter of slightly different wording in the heading or the text describing the task. Don’t worry. If you search in Control Panel, you’ll usually find the link you need.
The basicsIf you’re encountering a different kind of obstacle – your new device won’t appear on your desktop, an application you added won’t run, or your computer is refusing to start up – here are a couple of preliminary steps:
  1. Before adding any major hardware or software to your system, make sure you've recently backed up your Windows 7-based PC or your Windows Vista-based PC as a safeguard. By using the automatic backup functions, you can schedule regular upkeep for maximum convenience.
  2. Write down the contact information for Microsoft Customer Service and Support, should you need to consult an expert. Take a second to print the below instructions as well, and keep them handy as you walk through the troubleshooting process.
  3. Many issues can be resolved by simply checking to be sure that all of your plugs are connected properly. After you are sure of that, try restarting (“rebooting”) your system. Turn your computer off, and then back on a few seconds later. If the problem continues, follow the steps below.
Locating the problem Ask yourself if the problem is related to hardware, software, or the operating system (such as Windows 7, Windows XP, or Windows Vista). The following are some common indicators that can help you decide which is the right answer.
If you're uncertain, don't worry. Just start at the top by determining if your software is working, using the Software errors section that follows. If the issue persists, proceed to the Hardware trouble section and then to the System failure section.
You can also find really helpful information at Microsoft Help and Support. If you'd like to search by individual program, try the Product Solution Center. Or check the columns and blogs found on the Windows Community Web site, where you can find helpful input from experts and fellow computer users.
The lists on the right side of this page may also help you narrow down the type of trouble you are experiencing.
Software errorsIf programs refuse to install, won't appear on your desktop, can't seem to run without freezing, don't load at a decent speed or function properly, or Internet access is unavailable, here's how to troubleshoot:
General issues
  1. Confirm that your PC meets the software's minimum system requirements. If it doesn't, you'll be unable to run the program without upgrading your computer's hardware. Note that PCs which barely meet or just slightly exceed these minimums may run the software more slowly and can be less reliable. Windows 7 and Windows Vista users can reference the Windows Experience Index to quickly gauge their PC's general capabilities.
  2. Check for compatibility with Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
  3. Close open programs and windows that you're not currently using. These can eat up system memory and processing power, slowing your PC or preventing additional software from running. Try running the program again.
  4. Check available hard drive space. Roughly 5 to 10 percent of your hard drive's total storage allotment should be left free to ensure optimum system performance in Windows 7 and Windows Vista, prevent crashes, and keep Windows running at top speed.
    Note Use Disk Cleanup to free more space:
    Windows 7
    Windows Vista
    Windows XP
    Check for program updates and information on frequently encountered issues at the software manufacturer's Web site. For Microsoft products, you can also load Windows Update for Windows 7, Windows Update for Windows Vista, or visit the Microsoft Download Center. If you install an update, restart your computer, and attempt to run the program again.
  5. Uninstall or delete unwanted programs in Windows 7 or Windows Vista to cut down on clutter and remove any drain on your system's resources.
  6. Disable programs you don't use to in Windows 7 or Windows Vista by preventing them from automatically loading when Windows starts. If you’re running Windows 7, restart your computer, and try the program again.
  7. Defragment your hard drive in Windows 7 or Windows Vista to improve performance.
  8. Scan for viruses and spyware. Windows Defender in Windows 7 and Windows Vista can help detect and prevent threats, along with preventing annoying pop-up notices and unauthorized home network intrusions. You can scan your PC for free.
  9. Reboot your computer and try loading the program again. If it still won't load or work correctly, you may need to uninstall the software and then reinstall it from scratch and reboot again. Advanced users can also try these advanced troubleshooting tricks in Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
  10. Consult Microsoft Help and Support and the Windows Community. If live assistance is required, first contact the software manufacturer's customer support department. For additional assistance, try Microsoft Customer Service and Support.

Hi.first you proceed safe mode and check for chance of virus removal if any. other wise try to select start operation with command prompts. Once after solving in any one these options, then think about starting up computer in regular mode. with respect to your statements, the reasons for failure are either virus attack or failure of installing of system file correctly.
