    Which brand model & model # computer have you?
    Which brand model & model # motherboard in your computer; cpu, ram, power supply, hard disk drive [ HDD ], optical drive [ CD, DVD, Blue Ray, other ]?

    When did the problem begin? Sometimes the exact date is important.

    What changed? A hardware or software install or removal; update to W7 [ check the update history ], a program [ anti malware or other ]?

    At what point during the startup [ boot ] process does this msg appear? As soon as you 1st turn on your computer, what's the first thing displayed? What's the next thing? Continue with a description until the W7 log in screen or the Desktop appear, or the boot process stops.
