Laptop startup problem

Vista laptop refuses to start on reboot - says there is an error and when I ran repair, memory check and attempted to take back to last check point, no joy. I upgraded realplayer yesterday and have not rebooted since - otherwise no real changes to explain it. Any ideas very gratefully received.

    Thanks for the suggestion - but I had fixed it going the F8 - Safe Mode reboot route - that enabled me to restore to a point when the system had been OK. Made sure I did a new back up as soon as I could though, just in case - and will increase the frequency of my regular backups to "daily" from now on!

My son accidently shut his laptop down whilst installing microsoft office and now he has an error on startup: status: oxcoooooe9. I tried rebooting and starting in safe mode but it always goes back to...


Instead of re-installing the Operating System you can do an Operating System repair. Boot to the Windows Operating System installer disc,. If you have XP, boot to the XP installer disc then enter the setup program. There will be an option that says "Press R to Repair Computer". Press letter R then let the setup finish. For Vista/7, boot to the installed disc then select "Startup Repair" This will repair all corrupted Windows file and will keep your data intact,

Hope this help.

Ifyour Windows 7 or Vista computer has encountered the dreaded "BOOTMGRis missing" error, you aren't alone. If the problem isn't hardwarerelated you can fix it with relative ease as long as you have a WindowsDVD handy.
If you don't have one, you can create a Windows Vista repair disk
http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/how-to-make-a-windows-vista-repair-disk-if-you-dont-have-one/


Boot off the Windows Vista DVD and then click Next at the first prompt You can also follow the step from this side:http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/fixing-bootmgr-is-missing-error-while-trying-to-boot-windows-vista/





The installation process will attempt to find your Vistainstallation directory. If there's more than one in the list, selectthe correct one and then use the Next button again.


Click the first link for "Startup Repair"


The installation process will repair the system, and then prompt for you to reboot.
Alternatively you could have chosen the Command Prompt option instead,and use the following command to fix the boot options only: bootrec /fixboot

At this point you should be able to reboot your computer, remove the DVD and everything should be working.

To repair your computer using Startup Repair follow these steps:
  1. Boot into Vista installation DVD
  2. Choose your language settings and click Next
  3. Click Repair your computer
  4. Choose your operating system and click Next. This should bring up System Recovery Options.
  5. Click on Startup Repair
Startup Repair should now start diagnosing your system to identify the root cause of the failure. Once it has identified the root cause, it would automatically start repairing your computer. If you are curious to know what Startup Repair did, you can click on the details link and see which tests Startup Repair ran to diagnose the problem.
After Startup Repair has finished the repairs, click Finish to reboot your computer.
Your computer should now be able to boot normally into Vista!!
Note -- If your computer cannot boot into Vista even after repairs, then go back to System Recovery Options and run System Restore.
That's it! This is how you use Startup Repair for most unbootable situations.
