My laptop will no longer start up.  It will go into DOS mode when starting and will start in SAFE MODE, but when I turn it on for a normal startup, I get the Windows 7 sign-in then it just grinds for awhile and goes black, but nothing ever happens.

When I go into SAFE MODE and do the diagnostics on it, I get that all systems are ok, but it still never comes on completely.  The one message I do see is that "SuperFetch not running".

 

I am running in SAFE MODE at this time and everything works except the volume, and downloading of some things, but can someone PLEASE help me with this a.s.a.p!!!!!

1) There is no DOS mode

2) Superfetch wouldn't have anything to do with the system not booting properly

3) What is new or different since the last time everything worked properly (ie, new hw, new sw, virus, error, etc)?

4) What do you mean when you say it "grinds" for a while? Do you hear a grinding noise?

Not a literal grinding noise, just the regular humming it makes.  Ok when is say DOS, I mean the screen similar to the old systems where the white words are on a black background.  I'm no expert, I don't know what it is.  I tried to go thru Recovery, it wouldn't allow it. 

 

Yesterday I think I deleted a printer driver that I thought wasn't necessary.  I've been trying to remove my Kodak Printer so that I can re-install and the files are everywhere, that's the only thing.  No error messages or anything.

I'm guessing you deleted something other than a printer driver. You have several options:

 

1) Boot to the advanced boot options screen (as soon as the system starts, begin tapping the F8 function key until you get to the advanced boot options screen). Choose: Last Known Good Configuration. If that works, fine. If not, go to the next step:

 

2) Insert your Windows 7 DVD and run the startup repair option. If that doesn't work do the next step

 

3) Boot to safe mode and run sfc /scannow as follows: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929833

If you have a SSD drive installed, yes Super fetch can be disabled by the OS, or someone physically doing it, through turning off Services that they think they do not need running.

Let's not worry about superfetch right now.
