SOURCE: hp compaq laptop how to restore to factory default?

Go to Start/All Programs/HP Tools/HP PC System Recovery

If this doesn't work then try pressing the F10 key multiple times during the bootup to access the recovery console.

If this still doesn't get things fixed then you need to re-install XP

When it gets to the startup screen it shows some updates then shuts down

If you have your windows installation disk you can try to do a system repair. To do this, turn on you laptop and when the bios starts (usually white text on black background or an acer backgroud) press the F12 key to change boot order. Now select your dvd or cd drive. Windows will load files and then ask what you want to do. Select system repair and follow instructions.

Everytime i turn my computer on it launches into startup repair (recommended) Windows loading files? Starup repair is checking your system for problems do you want to restore your computer using system...

OK, I would try to restore to the earliest date possible, or Recover to original state of computer from factory. The latter is more radical than the former, but it will guarantee that any corrupt files are eliminated.

Windows will not start up on acer aspire 4315 notebook

If you have data that you need on your laptop you may want to take it to Geeksquad or to someone and have them pull the informaiton off. If you have the restoration disk you may want to use them. Either your hard drive messed up or the software on it did but unless you have a windows xp cd to do a repair install (installs a "fresh" copy of windows). If you do not have either the windows xp cd or the restoration cd you can obtain them from the vendor or maker of the computer. The price for these disk should be about $30.00.

Startup repair

Did you try using Safe Mode? Hit F8 when its booting and choose safe mode. See if that will let you boot into the OS.
