Bootmgr !!! Error

December 31, 2010 at 01:38:29
Specs: Windows 7, 1.67gz/2GB

My laptop is not booting normally ever since I downloaded a file knowing that it might had a virus. It worked for a while and then all of a sudden it shut down. I turned it back on but all I see is a black screen. My hard drive doesn't kick in. So I decided to boot from wIndows DVD. Again it never booted from the DVD and when it was about to boot from DVD, it gives this message: press any key to boot from CD or DVD: Error could not find bootmgr !! And after flashing this message for a split second again black screen is what i see !!! Please help as it is driving me nuts now !!

1st tap f8 at boot, choose system restore to a point before you downloaded the bad file. if that fails tap the del button on reboot, in the bios set your machine as the dvd to be boot device.
then restart with the dvd in,

question, did your machine come with win7? if so you probably have a hidden partition to restore your machine.

Thanks princecorum for your reply !! but nither f8 nor inserting a DVD worked....when i try to hit f8 at start, all i see is a black screen and when i changed my boot sequence to DVD, and inserted windows 7 or windows vista's DVD, i get the message: press any key to boot from CD or DVD: Error could not find bootmgr. If I try to boot my laptop with windows xp cd, i get the message: memory over flow error. and If i try to boot from the vista recovery DVD, the windows hangs upon: Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration.....

My laptop came with vista but i upgraded it to windows7 when it came out in the market. Thats the reason i made those recovery DVD's before formating vista just in case if i needed my computer in the state that it originally came in .

It is a Acer Aspire 5630 laptop with 2GB of RAM and 320 GB of hard disk space.

try taking out each memory stick and then replace 1 at a time in each slot, you may have a bad mem stick or a loose one..
you could also take out the drive, add it too another machine to recover your files and format the drive.
but it sounds pretty much like a memory issue.
