Yesterday my main comp was acting slow so I shut it down and tried to reboot. It went to startup repair (windows Vista) and went through the process of trying to repair itself. It said that it could repair and to call my system admin for assistance. I didnt get a recovery disk with this comp so what can I do to resolve this problem other than getting a new comp?

Re: startup repair failed. cant get to startup screen
Did you back-up your important files?, if you did, then you need to reformat your hard disk drive (hdd) and reinstall new system.
but if you didn't backup your important files, ask for help at the service center near you, cause it need another hdd to backup some files.
then if you have nothing to lose on your hdd then go ahead to reformatting. sometimes that error occur when it didn't undergo proper shutdown

Simply hold down the power button until the notebook shuts down. Then, restart the notebook and it may just boot up normally. If you're taken to a screen with options that include Startup Repair or Start Windows Normaly, try Normaly first. If it won't start, use Startup Repair the next time around.
When you leave a notebook off that long, Windows may have tried to install dozens of updates. You will need to patiently update Windows completely.

Hello Henry. Let's begin by resetting it. Carefully lift off the thin, delicate frame around the screen with your fingernail. under there you will find the reset button. With the garmin on, push the reset. This act may solve your problem. If it does not you will have to send the unit into Garmin for a repair. Go to Garmin.com to do that. J.
When you boot up start pressing F8 and you should get a Windows startup page with more options. If you do select Safe Mode
When windows has loaded, goto MSConfig and select Diagnostic Startup. Ok and reboot
See if windows boots normally.
This is hopefully a possible fix. I have encountered a similar problem with windows xp and vista. the fix I found that will eliviate this problem and a startup-reboot-startup-reboot... If you have your original windows (xp or vista) CD lounch it like you would do to do a system install. As the installation starts it will show ask you if you would like to do a recovery using the recovery console, just press ESC and go on. Press the F8 to accept the license. If Windows is not completly broke, it will find the original installation on your hard drie. It will ask if you want to repair. Press the R key and windows will reinstall your operating system, without destroying your software or data. After it is done the system will go to the windows startup screen. You will need your windows product key located on your machine or on the original software packaging.
I hope this will fix your problem.
The most common shut down problem is that the system will reboot rather than shutting down. In most cases, the reboot is triggered because Windows XP is designed to reboot after a critical failure. To stop windows from rebooting in case of a failure, you need to take the following steps:
Right click on My Computer, Select Properties, Click on advance tab, Click on Settings under Startup and Recovery, Uncheck the option Automatically Restart under System failure, Click Ok twice and try to shutdown the pc. If it shows any error code then let me know
Boot into safe mode by pressing F8 about 10 times during the post screen. Then completely remove your video drivers. Then reboot, into windows normally, go to the Nvidia web site and download the latest graphics drivers for the video card that you have.
