Question about Computers & Internet
Powers up, Starting Windows screen displays, then goes to a black screen with the cursor. If I shut it down with the power key, then start it up again, I get the option to repair windows, but it says it can't fix the problem. Tried restoring to an earlier time, haven't tried restoring to factory default as I don't really want to lose everything.

During start-up the computer will go to a black screen for awhile and then the pointer arrow will show alone, and then the system will come up.
If you think it's a hibernation problem, pull the ac plug and battery out for about 1 hour and then plug back in.
If this didn't work, then try the F8 Key and choose "Last Know Good Configuration".

SOURCE: hp laptop keeps restarting
If the laptop is not popping up any windows before it shuts down it could be the built in heat protection, you can see if your fan has a lot of dust by turning off the laptop off and then blowing into the area where it pulls in air. If it is popping up a window before it shuts down disconnect it from the internet and see if it does the same thing, if it stays on while discod from the internet then run your antivirus if possibl.

does it run with the power cord plugged in? if so your batterys dead, otherwise harddrive/bios/motherboard fault? is your power supply charging the battery?

Usually this happens when the vista boot loader fails. During boot up, keep tapping F8 and then select Disable Automatic Restart... and get the stop error code which usually starts with 0x

The main drive (C) being too full is an indicator that's your problem. Windows reserves space on your drive called a 'swap' file. It effectively takes hard drive space and uses it in lieu of RAM if you don't have enough available RAM to run programs.
If the computer doesn't have enough hard drive space to create the swap file then it won't boot up, as it will interpret the lack of available space as a failure to install the file and then try to reboot.
Luckily it doesn't install one when you're in safe mode. Try going into safe mode and restoring some of your hard driver space, as well as performing a cleanup and defragmentation of your hard drive, and chances are it will boot up.
As an alternative you might think about getting an external hard drive and using that for any new programs/music/videos/etc.
