Hello,, I have a Compaq HP Dual Core Laptop that runs on windows 7..I don' really know what happened but something is changed in my drive C that i cannot access it. And when I reboot my computer windows won't start, it only shows the logo on startup and then goes blank. When I tried to reformat it trying to re install windows, it stops on "setup is starting" and doesn't move on. Can anyone help me on this please?.

When it says setup is starting, how long are you waiting? I have seen it take anywhere from 5-20 minutes on that screen before it starts the install wizard.
