Microsoft updates do it again!!!
while the PC is booting up his F8 repeatedly, if it lets you into the sub menu boot into safe mode and perform a system restore, take the computer back to before you did the updates, if this works and your computer is restored, turn the automatic updates off

kind regards and please don't forget to vote

Why does the computer not boot up when the memory is full?


Press F8 on startup and choose safe mode, this should eliminate some of the programs loaded.

type in the run/cmd box 'msconfig' and press enter.


go to startup tab and un-tick some of the startup programs that are not Microsoft, this will stop them automatically loading them into memory.

Be careful which ones, as it could stop some programs working.


This should allow you to re-boot and remove some of the programs using the control panel icon 'programs and features'.

T61 won't go past the Microsoft loading screen


Press F8 during boot, and load Safe Mode. A program may be preventing a proper startup.

Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig > Startup tab and uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running.


This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when you initiate.

My Presario CQ60 is stuck in recovery manager mode. I keeps going to startup repair.


Problems starting up a PC can be tricky to fix, since Windows hasn't had a chance to load its arsenal of troubleshooting tools. Some people simply give up and reinstall Windows.

Startup Repair can prevent a time-consuming reinstallation by diagnosing and repairing problems that prevent Windows from starting.

Startup Repair is designed to start automatically if Windows detects a startup problem. For more information about using Startup Repair, and what to do if it doesn't start automatically


here is my solution... when you boot your window when you're middle in dos loading press F8 and select boot in safe mode... then when you are in windows click start --> all programs ---> accessories---> sytem tools ---> system restore... hope you back up your windows.... try to restore your window in earlier time...


HOPE IT HELPS AND GOD BLESS

Laptop won't starup (Black screen displayed) Help me please!!


Try this.

Turn the computer on and immediately press and hold the F8 key.

On the Advanced Boot Options menu, choose Repair Your Computer.

When you reach the System Recovery Options menu, choose Startup Repair. You already did that, but try it again.

If that doesn't do the work, go back to the System Recovery Options menu and do a System Restore.
You can use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment (Windows RE) to troubleshoot and repair the following items in Windows Vista or Windows 7:
  • A master boot record (MBR)
  • A boot sector
  • A Boot Configuration Data (BCD) store
Note When you are troubleshooting startup issues by using the Windows RE, you should first try the Startup Repair option in the System Recovery Options dialog box. If the Startup Repair option does not resolve the issue, or if you must troubleshoot more steps manually, use the Bootrec.exe tool.

To run the Bootrec.exe tool, you must start Windows RE. To do this, follow these steps:

  • Put the Windows installation disc in the disc drive, and then start the computer.
  • Press a key when you are prompted.
  • Select a language, a time, a currency, a keyboard or an input method, and then click Next.
  • Click Repair your computer.
  • Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt.
  • Type Bootrec.exe, and then press ENTER.
Note To start the computer from the Windows DVD, the computer must be configured to start from the DVD drive. For more information about how to configure the computer to start from the DVD drive, see the documentation that is included with the computer or contact the computer manufacturer.

Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Startup repair won't run


"Unmountable boot volume" this problem is your hard disk partition which is failure to recognize & identify the operating system running on the hard disk. Reformat your hard disk and put another operating system to run again your computer.

using the system restore disk, boot the laptop and choose repair, run chkdisk /r this repairs the system files, if this does not fix the problem, using the same system disk do a restore.
