When i turn my computer on all that happens is it looks like its going to boot up but then it doesnt, then a black screen appears saying:
We apologise for the inconvience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarting unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose last known good configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If the previous startup attemt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the power or reset button was pressed, or if you arent sure what cause the problem, choose start windows normally.
Safe mode with Networking
Safe mode with command prompt
Last know good configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Start windows normally
use the up and down arrow keys to moce the highlighted to your choice.

You should go replace the CMOS battery, its looks like a button cell flatten out. I don't know about your booting problem, but I think you should try reseating (taking out and putting in) the ram or the Memory Modules. If this doesn't work, you should try reseating the Video Card.
try to boot the computer in safemode with networking .
first shut down the computer and then while u turn on the computer start pressing F8 on the computer for 12 times and it will give you an option for advanced boot option from the list select safe mode with networking and then try to boot the computer ,,,,,once u log on to safe mode then go to run and in run type in msconfig ,,,in system configuration box select services and disable unwanted services and then restart the computer on normal boot and then the system will work fine ,,,,,,
RESTART YOUR COMPUTER, ON REBOOT, CLICK F10 WHEN YOUR CHANGE BOOT OPTIONS SCREEN COMES UP. YOU MUST PRESS F10 QUICKLY OR IT WILL LOAD WINDOWS AND YOU WILL HAVE TO RESTART AGAIN. ONCE YOU GET INTO THE BIOS SETUP UTILITY GO TO SYSTEM CONFIGURATION, SCROLL DOWN TO BOOT OPTIONS CLICK ENTER. GO DOWN TO INTERNAL NETWORK ADAPTER BOOT AND ENABLE IT. GO TO EXIT AND SAVE.
First try a simple windows pc restore, go to the start menu, then to help and restore center and click on "restore my computer to an earlier date" then choose a date before your son mucked up your PC. Boot in safe mode if it wont boot (repeatedly tap f8 during boot)
If this doesnt work ring your pc manufacturer and they will send you restore disks.
If you have built the PC yourself ring microsoft and give them you windows product key and they will send you a new copy of windows.
Sometimes when this happens to me there are several things that I try. Remove the memory module and reseat it firmly and then try to boot again. Most of the time, this is the problem. If not, then try resetting the bios.
