    Hello, and thank you for taking the time to help me.

    I've got a big problem with my laptop. if I try to boot it normally it gets blue screen and dies. The same thing happends if I use fail safe. (crashed at crcdisk)

    So I thought idd reinstall it. However when i boot up from my windows cd, I only get the 2 possibilities to "setup and recovery". No matter which of those I choose it goes to "loading files" and then to "starting windows".

    I've reinstalled quite a few computers, with xp and windows 7, and I've never had any trouble doing so.

    So i thought idd try to take out the hdd manually, but I realised I dont have the cables to connect it to my other pc, and clean the hdd that way.

    Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    Thanks in advance

    With regards

    So you have a Windows 7 install DVD? Your system is set to boot from DVD first or you have a boot option to set it first?

    If you can get into a command prompt, you can clean the drive, or possibly download and burn something like Partition Wizard or G-Parted to boot and wipe the drive.

    Do you know of anything that might have made you suspect the drive was failing?
