✔ Best Answer
On your keyboard be ready to start tapping the F8 key when you press the power button. With your arrow keys sellect - Last known good configuration - press the Enter Key. You should give brand name of your computer. Windows 7 dosen't come with install Cd. You have to make your own. This location should be in All Programs. For a Desktop it usually take 3 DVD but have more ready just in case more are needed.

If it still doesn't boot up, does it show any error messages?

What were the circumstances when it stopped working--were you using it and it just died or was it off and it wouldn't start?

Go into cmos/bios setup and see if the hard drive is showing there. If it shows (and it's still working) it's possible there's a restore partition on the drive. Post back info on your system. Is it prebuilt like a Dell or HP or is it something put together by an individual?

Also... As likely there are personal files you may wish to save - photos at least? - it would be wise to safeguard those "before" you use any restore routines, or do "anything" that actually changes what's on the hard drive at present.

So if there are files you want to safeguard - first - post back for some ideas/help to achieve that (first). Then you can set about resolving the actual problem as posted (especially if it involves restore routines or other actions that may/will mean you do things to the installation as is...).
