sounds to me like the windows 7 was not activated.
try tapping f8 and see if you can get into safe mode. Then right click on computer and see if windows 7 was not activated. Let us know.

system not found in my experience generally leads to a damaged or loose hard drive, try to open the cover at the bottom side of the machine, and reseat the hard drive, if it still says system not found, get a 2.5 inch drive case, put your laptop drive in the case and connect it to another machine, if you can access the drive great! save all your files and once complete return the drive to your machine and try to reinstall the OS from a dvd, then reinstall your files..

start tapping f8 as soon as you boot up the laptop. Eventually you should be able to access safe mode

when you hit F7, what options did you get?
those options may have been to reset your system in which case your drive may be ok, i think that your drive has been dislodged as stated in my first post, did your reseat the drive? always first thing to do after a fall,
did you test the drive in a hard drive case? a case cost 10 dollars its the cheapest way to test the drive, and you may still be able to recover your files and OS....
finally try a new drive, of course you will need to buy recovery disks from the manufacturer or buy a new OS.

When i hit F5 the screen get to systhem administration and
then it tells me to choose a system to opertate and then it
says window 7. After that ut. Says to specify and option hit F8
, when I hit F8 the screen goes kind of dark blue and still
doeesnt do anything. Anyways I try to reset the laptop taking
out the battery and pressing tge stard buttom for a hole
minute and nothing happen(still same thing). The vaio logo
appears and then the screen goes dark blue and nothing else
happens. I think the laptop doesnt really let me go to Save
mode. I dont know what else can I do to make this laptop
work. I really dont care about my files anymore I only wish
this laptop could work. And i cant buy that cases u say
becouse im out of the country :(. Do u have any last options

sounds more and more like your drive needs replacing, if you have checked that the drive is correctly plugged in and seated, and it still will not start up, after trying to start with a dvd made from the link xpuser4real gave you, and it still will still not start up,
then i say, buy a new drive, http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Seagate-SATA-... or
you can try to install from the dvd to a usb stick, using the usb stick as a drive,this link should help, although you will need access to another machine. http://www.intowindows.com/install-...
