    You can use your Windows DVD to go into console mode and use this command.
    bootrec /fixboot

    i could access window explorer via the system recovery backup thingy. so i was thinking if i could delete the or rename the bootmgr there, and when i start up it will auto fix?

    @ Lance1 doesn't work
    @ vive1 when i start startup repair, they say it can't be repair.
    and @ the first page of the recovery console, my OS wasn't listed there.

    If I'm understanding the above correctly it sounds like serious hard drive problems. Suggest you run some diagnostics. Also take a look at what seems to be on the drive now. One way is to boot a Live CD of Puppy Linux (or any Linux distribution) and in a Console (Puppy's name for Terminal window) type

    fdisk -l

    (the last character is lower case L).

    I believe my harddisk is fried. Before i had this problem i encounter slow processing.. and a burnt smell coming out from my laptop.
