"I did something with the partitions on my laptop" is a little vague. Perhaps you could give more exact info of what it was you did, and why, and the make and model of your laptop.

Off the top of my head it sounds like you need to reinstall Windows 7, or at least do a repair install, but it's difficult to say for sure without knowing what you have done.

Ijack@ i was shrinking and extending the memory of my already made partitions (local disk c and d) but after that it was ok with but when i did it shut down and after a day restarted then it gave me a msg that "windows startup failed, it may be due to a recent hardware or software change". And problem status: 0xc000000s something. My laptop is of Hp Pavilion dv4 and i have no windows cd or backup. When i ran a Run-in-test it gave a msg on hard disk test that hard disk does not exits? What it could be?
