my friends advent Modena laptop running windows 7, the windows wont load, it goes to an advent 4 option screen, which if you choose anything it just hangs

I don't know what hes done to it to get it in this state, I think its a 32 bit version of windows

ive tried loading a windows repair disk, it ran through a cycle of something but didn't sirt anything out, still the same way!

ive tried F8 and advanced options, repair your computer doesnt work same with safe mode

anybody any ideas the best way to solve this
