Earlier today when I wanted to go on my computer, as I do so, I log into my computer and at that point I am using Windows 7. But for some reason after I logged into my account, an the desktop came up, it's like the computer froze. But didn't. At that point I am looking at my desktop, and nothing is happening. I can't go to Google Chrome, even click on the start menu. So, I try the task manager, and that fails to come up. I get a message saying something about the system and the operating system. And that I need to restart my computer and see if that works. So, I force restart (Because there is no way I can shut down the computer). Then I go into windows safe mode to see if my computer has a virus, and I do a scan, and my computer is clean as it can be. No threats, never was a threat on this computer.
I told some of my friends about this, and they said that I should do something with a Windows 7 disc. Well, Bust Buy never gave me a CD with the computer. So, I don't know what else to say. I believe that Windows 7 has just stopped, working. Because it doesn't load anything on the computer. What do you think of this?
If you are wondering how I am writing this, I am running on Linux. I have 2 operating systems on the same computer, and now that Windows 7 is failing, I am using Linux.

It's possible that your hard drive is experiencing some problems. If there is a bad sector on the drive, your computer might lock up on you while it desperately tries to read the damaged area. Ideally, your computer would return an error, but this isn't always the case.
I had a similar problem a couple of months ago, so I ran a couple of scans of the disk to fix any problems, which got me up and running again.

it is possible for the HD to havea bad spot in one sector and not in another so that just certian files are messed up and nothing else same goes for dual boot machines :)
try a full disk check on boot up if that done work could be time to take it and see if what on the drive can be salvaged to another ..
