Question about Compaq IDE CD-Rom Drive Presario 500 (177072001)
Help me please when i switch my laptop on it says windows failed to start. a recent change of software or hardware change might be the cause. if windows files have been damaged or configured incorrectly stratup repair can help diagnose and fix the problem. if power was interrupted during startup, choose strart windows normally then i click on lauch startup repair (recommended) then it says windows is loading files and from there blankscreen. can anyone help me with this???
Try running it in safemode and if you have recently added any new hardware or software that may be causing your problem uninstall it while you are in safemode.
As the computer boots press F8 to enter safe mode. If this is successful then everything on the screen will look big, ignore that for now. uninstall anything that may be causing the problem. If you have not loaded anything lately, then while in safe mode restore your computer to an earlier date when you know that everything was working okay.
You can do this by going to Start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system restore. Then choose a date when you know that things were okay and press restore. You computer will restore to the date you selected and it will reboot. If asked to whether you want to start windows normally after the boot then select that option.
I hope this helps
