  • To access the System Recovery Environment in Windows 7, simply boot your PC, just before the system loads the Windows operating system; hit the [F8] Function 8 key on your keyboard which will launch the Advanced Boot Options menu. There you will see a new option 'Repair Your Computer', select this option and hit 'Enter' on your keyboard.

    If your computer does not have this function for some reason let me know and I can refer you to some information on how to download and burn a repair ISO file to solve this issue.

  • Hi,

    If your computer is OEM, there should be a recovery partition.

    The factory restore can also be a choice for your to repair your system.
