    Default Windows 7 crashed

    Hello,

    The last thing I did before I had problems was download a game I downloaded from gamestop.com. I let it download all night, and when I got up in the morning, my system was saying that windows wouldn't load. I went to:

    -Advanced options for recovery and support, and under that were some options.
    -Startup repair: I tried this, and it said that windows couldn't figure out
    what was wrong. I think that it couldn't connect to the internet.
    -System restore: When I tried to restore it, I got this error message:
    "The instruction at 0xfb64584d referenced memory at 0x00000008. The
    memory could not be read."

    I tried to boot from my windows 7 disk (go into bios, change it to "boot from disc"), but it just kept going back to the same repair screen. I wouldn't mind wiping it out and installing windows 7 again, but I don't know how to do that.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    P.S. This is a new build from scratch.

    Boot directly from the CD/DVD by pressing the F12 button at startup, and then choose CD, this will load the CD and let you choose install. It might look the same at first as starting from CD how you mentioned, but it isn't and it will give you the install option instead of starting the repair again.

    Then you can install, and it will move your old windows into a folder called windows.old so you can get anything you need from it such as desktop items, music, documents, ect.
