I had a similar case with a desktop. final solution was to get another hard drive and "start over". to recover your personal files, get a mini hard drive enclosure and connect to your newly-drived lap with USB and transfer them. There is another, cheaper solution, although I have not ever tried it. During startup, press the F6 or F8 key to see a list of possible startup options (or read your manual for mfg-specific keys). Look for one that hopefully says "abort restore operation".

Brand new samsung notebook rv515 wont start up. start up repair keeps coming up

You can try getting to your boot menu to bypass this section of the startup, but you will probably be better off exchanging it for another one. You may have accidentally received a refurbished computer, or the computer didn't power down correctly after testing.

You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates. Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, 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 only you initiate.

When you boot up your computer, press the F8 key until you get some choices such as Safe Mode and Command Prompt. There will be an option for Last Known Good Configuration. Select this and hopefully it will restore your computer settings to the way it was before this happened.

My presario 500 wont even turn on

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

Startup problem

From: If the ntoskrnl.exe file is corrupt or missing this can also generate the error. To restore this file follow the below steps. 1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue. 2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key. 3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console. 4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password. 5. Type expand d:\i386\ntoskrnl.ex_ c:\windows\system32 6. You will then be prompted if you wish to overwrite the file type Y and press enter to overwrite the file. 7. Type exit to reboot the computer. If you only have a restore CD, this probably won't work. You should just start the restore all over again, if this is the case.
