Tap f8 on bootup and then select repair the PC.

PS: hopefully you made your repair disc when you bought it.
I have just installed windows 7 pro on 2 PC's and made sure to immediately make the repair disc.

Some HELP in posting on Computing.net plus free progs and instructions Cheers

thanks for the help. It actually is my friends daughters computer and I just been trying to fix it for him. They didn't make a repair disc for it that is one of the big problems we are having. I downloaded spotmau and going to see if that works. If it does I will post it on here for those of you that have this happen to you in the future. Anybody have any ideas I am open to try them. its a toshiba laptop with windows7 and only about 3 months old. It didn't come with any cd's to restore it with either.

maybe call toshiba support as it is only 3 months old. They might send out the recovery discs for a small fee.

The most important thing to do when getting a new PC or laptop is to IMMEDIATELY make the restoration discs....let your friend know that.

Did you try booting up in safe mode?

I tried safe mode but it wouldn't even pull safe mode up.. It isn't showing that he has an OS on it anymore. It was caused by opening a video on facebook. Think the video had a virus. He called Toshiba and they will send him a restore CD for 25 dollars. I think that is the best bet to do. Thanks for help. Lesson from all this is to never download or open anything from facebook anymore. lol

facebook is real bad for that stuff, that's for sure. Yes, the restore CD sounds like the right choice
