Whenever I start up my computer this screen comes up.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.

If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Start Windows Normally

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.


and whatever option i choose results into me returning to this same screen.
I have recentently got a new hard drive and also recently installed a printer but my computer was working perfectly the day before and when i came home the next day I got this.
I tried to put in my cd, but the computer doesn't even recognize it.
so im stuck and I hve no idea what I need to do.
