    I'm not sure what you're saying.

    The lack of paragraphs (enter key) and normal english, make understanding what happened difficult.

    From the sounds of it, you loaded bootcamp and win7, after that your OSX stopped working.

    What happens when you try to reformat and reinstall OSX?

    no thats not what happened the first time it happend was with the ring of death where the loading screen kept on going and going i fixed that by loading up the mac osx install dvd and ran time capsule and restore the system back to the latest time capsule data saved...but now now i cant even load time capsule so i went into disc utility... i clicked repair on mac osx cd dvd and it said that it is corrupted and wanted me to save all the good data onto a disc and reinstall everything again...how do i reformat?

    Just put in the DVD, hold C when booting, and in the top menu bar (after you choose your language) go to Utilities. Disk Utility. And then re partition that drive. You'll lose everything on there by the way... You re-partiion by selecting the partitions dropdown and select 1 Partition.

    Then after it re-partitions, you should close disk utility and install.
