Won't boot and automatically tries to repair problem but can't

When I power on my computer (A205-S5803) with Vista it begins to boot as normal then goes to a Startup Repair screen. Then a message say Startup cannont repair. I have two options View diagnostic and repair details and Viwe advanced options for system recovery and support. If I click the former I get some info, I don't understand. If I click the latter I get a box asking languange then another requesting my password. I tried all the passwords I would have used and non of them seem to be working. When I purchased this computer I didn't see any way to create a recovery disk so I didn't do it. Is there any way for me to get this password? Is it possible this is a virus? Just before this happen the computer did an auto update then on the reboot it never came back up.

I just experienced this last weekend. The only thing that worked for mine was to take it to someone who knew how to retrieve all my documents and photos, etc and then he had to wipe my machine clean and start over. I got it back last night. It's working fine now, but apparently this is a known Vista issue and Microsoft doesn't have an answer for it yet.

Computer wont start


You may try this; Turn OFF the laptop, remove the power sources (ac adapter and battery). Without power sources, hold power button 10 secs. Put back the power sources, and power ON the NB.

If same problem persist, boot from safe mode. Here's how;
  • Turn the computer on or Restart the computer
  • Start tapping the F8 key. The Windows Advanced Boot Options Menu appears. If you begin tapping the F8 key too soon, some computers display a "keyboard error" message. To resolve this, restart the computer and try again.
  • Ensure that the Safe mode option is selected, not Repair Your Computer
  • Press Enter. The computer then begins to start in Safe mode.
  • When you are finished with troubleshooting, close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would
If same problem persist, try reloading the Vista again.

Hope this works.

In that case you need to remove the BIOS password to remove you need to open the laptop locate the CMOS jamper located at the south bridge near the CMOS battery. Remove the jamper within 5 second after that reinsert the jamper. Now the BIOS password was cleared.
