Start a corrupted window 7

At the first time turning on windows at the first screen of setting the language I did a fours shut off as it did not recognize the mouse. Since then I cannot start windows. I tried all options in F8 none of them solved the issue. I ran a repair disk so I can get to the recovery image of the computer, but it does not recognize it and only gives me the option of manually selecting a file which so far I was not successful to locate the proper file. I searched on experts-exchange for a solution but did not find anyone addressing this.

Use the Windows 7 installation disk to run a repair of the OS.
>>   I did a fours shut off   <<  meaning you pulled the AC plug?
no need for that - normally, tipping once the POWER on switch will start the power down sequence

what model of pc/ laptop are you talking about?  most have different ways for this

What message do you get when starting windows? By pulling the AC plug it is very well possible that you have corrupted some sectors on your hard disk. These can often be repaired with a program like HDD Regenerator ( or GRC's Spinrite (

Hi Rahul today computers do not come with window CD. Instead computer manufactures pre install windows and create a partition for recovery. Microsoft does not provide a windows download for recovery. But my problem windows dose not detect the recovery partition.

nobus I did not pull the AC plug tipping the POWER on switch until windows shot down is a force shout down which can cropped the computer. But in my case I had no other option.

deroode I don’t think will work as you can see in the images I don’t have the possibility to install anything. Do you think in my scenario SpinRite will be able to solve the issue?

This is the screen I get after starting the computerIf clicking on the check is displays this msgThis is the screen displaying after booting from a repair disk  Syatem-repair-option.JPG System restore result
>>  nobus I did not pull the AC plug tipping the POWER on switch until windows shot down is a force shout down which can cropped the computer   <<  not sure what you mean here, difficult to understand

you can use the boot corrector tools from the parago,n rescue kit :

If the Harddisk is corrupted you can definitely use Spinrite. The program doesn't have to be installed on the pc you are working on, instead you create a bootable CDrom which scan's the whole hard disk surface for errors, and is often able to repair the harddisk to a usable state.

I would think that yes, your hard disk has got problems, so running either the Paragon or SpinRite tools will help.

However if the disk is failing and has important data on it, you may want to try backing this up first (if you don't have a recent backup anyway).  This should be done for all email, photos, music, documents, etc that are ONLY on that disk.  

The easiest way is to put that disk into another PC, preferably on a direct SATA connection, but an external USB drive bay may work as well.

Nobus has a good article on the testing procedure here:
 - however, I would try the data backup first, before any tests/repairs, as if the drive is mechanically failing, you may only have a few hours of life out of it.  

My personal preference on getting data from bad disks is GetDataBack from  Free to try, but you have to pay if it finds things it can get to.  Leave it running overnight though...
your link is just what you should NOT do : hold the power button
as i said - youch momentarily tipping it, will start the shutdown proper

tx Dan for referring to my article -  i was not yet come that far...
Abraham DeutschIT professionalAuthor Commented: I did not try as it cost $99 for only one time use. A new hard drive with a windows copy is not much more and faster and easier. Same is with, plus in buying process it should send a email with a code which I never received (I checked my spam email). So I attached it to a computer with a SATA III Hard Drive Adapter and ran a disk check, it took hours to complete and windows claim it found error’s but fixed it. But when I started the computer nothing had changed.
I installed a new hard drive and installed windows. But when I connected it to the network, I realized the NIC is not working.
Basically this computer was DOB.
What this experience teach me. If you with a new computer when there is not an issue of losing date, if I run in to problems in the benign, not to waste my time and exchange it.
I paid a heavy price for this lesson. three non productive days.
Thank you all for your help.

"Even if you will be successful to fix it why spend time when you can exchange it"

This is of course a great answer to a lot of questions asked on this forum...

Would you advice differently?
deroodeSystems AdministratorCommented:
That totally depends on the time, effort and money invested in your windows installation; The fact that you asked the question in the first place suggests you need a solution; Tossing the computer / hard-drive and buying a new one, or formatting  the hard-drive, followed by restoring from backup is often the quickest and easiest of solutions, but not necessary the cheapest, not even taking into account that not everyone has a backup of their system as current as one would like.

I agree with you 100% and that is exactly what I'm saying. "If there is not a issue of loosing anything " as in my case that is was a new computer out of the box. Therefore I want to advise others how to handle this in such situation. It may be self understood, but unfortunately it was not the case by me.
