In this case, boot to Advanced Boot Options by pressing F8 repeatedly after the BIOS post screen and try to run System Restore from there without Windows running.

Or you can do the same, i.e. running System Restore, by booting to Windows 7 disk if you have one. If still no go, then you can do a repair install of Win 7.

It is not a good idea to run Win 7 with only 512 MB RAM.

Have you ( some people else ) ever run Windows upgrade advisor before installing Win 7 on your computer ?

I've been using Win 7 for almost 4 months and it was working just fine.

Was it ?

"A CRITICAL PROCESS OR THREAD TERMINATED"

Have you recently installed or updated a driver or a program ?

Can you restore your system to a time before the error has started, using Windows built-in System Restore, provided of course you had not already turned it off ?

Yeah it was:
"A CRITICAL PROCESS OR THREAD TERMINATED"

And system restore also shows an error.
"SYSTEM RESTORE WAS UNSUCCESSFUL"
or something like that.

I tried the system restore from there only because windows is just not starting. And in case of repair, i tried to install a fresh copy of win 7 but it shows some drivers not found error.

If installation stops before it finishes, then please provide details on the error message. If installation continues in spite of error messages, then you can visit Windows update to find the missing drivers and/or you can visit device manufacturers support web sites to find proper drivers after Win 7 installs.

Win 7 has almost all the drivers needed for installation, drivers for IDE or SATA hard disks, IDE or SATA CD/DVD-ROM drives, gfx cards, ethernet chips, chipsets, etc. What Win 7 misses is the drivers such as audio chips, very old ethernet cards/chips, etc. But these drivers are not needed for a basic installation of Win 7.

After Win 7 completes installation, you see some exclamation marks in the Device Manager besides some devices. If your ethernet chip/card is not identified, you can use another computer to collect drivers for the devices with exclamation marks.

If Win 7 does not install from the very beginning, then Win 7 install media may be defective or DVD drive cannot read the disk.

I installed Win 7 on a Compaq P III ( 850 MHz )notebook with 512 MB RAM, just for the fun of it. This notebook was bought in 2001 and came with Win ME.

Create a bootable RAM test CD in another machine http://www.memtest.org/ and boot to it. Make necessary changes in BIOS to boot to the CD/DVD drive. Do the test for about 4 hours. If RAM comes out clean, then you may have to replace the CD/DVD drive.
