    Let me preface this by saying that I'm I'm not very computer literate so any help needs to be worded simply like for a child..I have installed WIN 7 64 and it has developed a problem..It wont boot to the desk top. It will post and go to the starting Windows screen sometimes and stops there..It wont go to safe mode.Is there a way to make a boot disk to get it to start or any kind of a diagnostic disk that a dummy can do? I really need help...Thank you

    Hello and welcome to the Windows 7 forums.

    How old is this computer? Are your computer specs good enough to run Windows 7

    Did you purchase the disk with the 32-bit version and 64-bit edition?

    Could you post the specifications of your computer?

    How much RAM do you have?

    Did you get any error messages during install

    Was this a 'clean' install or an upgrade?

    Have you tried inserting the installation disk to re-install?
