Ok, so my brother used my laptop to play a game. At the middle of his playing session, the laptop just rebooted(prolly crashed) and after that, we cant get back to the desktop, it just stops at the bios screen(where the POST message is). After the bios screen, all we can see is a blank screen with a blinking underscore at the top left. What happened and what can I do to fix this? And what might be the probable cause?

You may have to perform a startup repair in Windows 7. For this you would need a Windows 7 DVD. If you do not have a Windows 7 DVD then you can download a Windows 7 repair disk in ISO image format.

There can be many causes like hard disk failure, bootloader is damaged, system files corrupt etc. In my last post I suggested you a step to repair the files and settings related to bootloader problems.
