Hello all, Im on a HP pavillion m7 running Windows 7. I havent installed or downloaded anything recently but today upon turning on my laptop it went into startup repair ....it wasnt acomplishing anything. tried all i could from F8 boot menu...each option leads straight back to the startup repair. I do not have a windows 7 disk of any kind. what can I do?? i do have an 8 gig usb drive handy if that helps....im so distraught :( i wouldnt even mind a clean install at this point..(but dont know how to without the disk) i just want my computer back :(

i would borrow a windows 7 cd from someone first. you could download an iso from digitalriver and create a bootable cd, but i am not sure of those exact links. maybe someone here can help out with that. in the meantime, go to the manufacturer website of your hard drive and run a hard drive diagnostic to make sure that it isnt a failing drive before you take any other measures. if you get a windows cd and do a clean install or factory reset, if your hard drive is failing, it will go right back to square one. rule the hard drive out first

In lieu of looking for a hard drive diagnostic, you might try the suggestions at http://h20565.www2.hp.com/portal/site/hpsc/template.PAGE/public/kb/docDisplay/?sp4ts.oid=5262615&spf_p.tpst=kbDocDisplay&spf_p.prp_kbDocDisplay=wsrp-navigationalState%3DdocId%253Demr_na-c01443317-10%257CdocLocale%253D%257CcalledBy%253D&javax.portlet.begCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken&javax.portlet.endCacheTok=com.vignette.cachetoken .
