please could someone help?

I have suddenly developed a problem when booting up windows seven ultimate. I get a list of options -

windows 7/vista/server (pointer)
windows 7/vista/server(Debug - Default Mode)
windows 7/vista/server (Debug - Legacy Mode)
windows 7/vista/server (No SLIC - Pointer)
windows 7/vista/server (No SLIC)
WindowsNT/2000/xp

For some unknown reason the selection cursor seems moves up and down uncontrollably until I hit a key?

"windows 7/vista/server (pointer)" is the only option that boots into windows.

all the other options seem to enter into "windows recovery"

I have also tried to run a chkdsk/r after a reboot but windows automatically cancels the scheduled check.

I have no idea why this has suddenly happened and how to resolve it?

thanks in advance for your assistance.

From what you describe it sounds like you may have a stuck key on your keyboard. Possibly the F8 key as you seem to be booting to the boot options screen. If you have a spare keyboard try swapping them and see if the problem persists.

Is this a legitimate copy of Windows 7 Ultimate?
