A system restore from repair/install disk will take your machine back before this problem. (if you don't have one download one here)

 

Be sure that the DVD you are using is for the same edition of Windows 7 that you are trying to repair – for example, Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit or whatever specific version that you have. A full installation disc can be used for repair even if you have an OEM system. No product key is required in this process.

  1. Put the disc in your optical drive and restart to boot from the DVD. You may have to change the boot settings in your BIOS if booting from a CD/DVD is not enabled. Watch for the  “Press any key to boot from CD or DVD” message.
  2. On the "Install Windows" screen, make the appropriate selections for language, time, and keyboard, and then click “Next”.
  3. On the next screen, click “Repair Your Computer”. Do not click "Install now"
  4. In “System Recovery Options”, select which operating system you want to restore if any are listed. It will be blank in many systems with only one operating system.
  5. Click “Next”.
  6. The “System Recovery Options” screen shown below will open.
  7. Select “System Restore”.

I hope this helps, let us know if you have any issues.

Oh dear... that is an issue.

 

What this is, is that the machine is detecting a hardware configuration change which doesn't fit the original specs... A nasty unnecessary bit of proprietary protection. 

 

If the Windows installation did not start you need to get your hands on a DVD like I outlined above, and complete the system restore.

 

If it did you need to request an OEM Windows installation disk from the manufacturer, to make it work again.

i don't have a dvd and i cant download one.

Go to a PC shop and ask them to Download it for you and burn it,

I did this once and the guy charged me 3 bucks for internet use and 50 cents for the dvd, As he also had a small internet cafee in the front he even let me do it.
