    Hi, i was simply surfing through ESPN and youtube when I realized that my Laptop (Gateway NV79) was running quite slowly and then after a while it completely froze. I couldn't do anything, nothing i did would work . So unfourtunantly i had to hard shutdown it.
    And here's what happened after i rebooted it, It comes up with two options
    1. Start Startup Repair(Recommended)
    2. Start Windows Normally

    -I go to "Start windows Normally" and it goes to boot up normally, but then after the Windows 7 logo appears it just stays there and nothing happens
    -I go Launch Startup Repair and it says loading files, but then it goes to a black screen with the logo © Micosoft Corporation and nothing happens

    -I tried F8 advanced boot but it doesnt do anything
    -I tried safe mode with networking, it says loading files and please waitt but even after 10 mins it just stays the same
    -I dont have win 7 CD


    Please assist me if you can :( I am in dire need.

    I think I would run memory and hard drive diagnostics. Maybe included in your BIOS (Setup) or Recovery partition or set of Recovery DVDs tools. Memtest86+ is a popular test. The hard drive manufacturer usually has the best diagnostics for it.
