You can perform a restore on it. Refer to manual on how to repair Windows by repairing or restoring. Alternatively, start you computer up and keep tapping F8. When loads of options come up on the screen, you should see "Repair my computer" or something similar. Use arrow keys on keyboard to select and hit enter. That should load you into recovery/repair options

XP is corrupted, most likely caused by a massive infection. Try a Repair. Follow this instructions http://michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm 
If this doesn't work (or goes back they way it is now very quickly) use a Linux Live-CD to backup all your files and reformat your pc and do a clean install.

SOURCE: my rebooted my advent 4211-b netbook to factory

Welcome to Fixya

Error means the boot files are missing or damaged. Try to restore the computer using the disk that came with it instead of using the recovery console.

Thank you for using Fixya!

When switcthing on my Advent netbook it comes up with the error message Windows Boot Manager Windows Falied to Start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1....


Hi sioban_bros,

Based on your situation. I suggest trying the following steps:

1. restart the computer and keep pressing F8; Use Last Known Good Configuration.

2.If the issue still occurs after that, I suggest testing if we can boot from a Windows XP disk. If so, please install Windows XP on another partition and access your important data.

3. After backing up those data, you can use Windows XP disk to format the drive and reinstall your preferred operating system.

4. However, if we cannot boot from a Windows XP disk, the issue can be caused by incorrect BIOS settings or damaged hardware. I recommend contacting your computer manufacturer to check BIOS and hardware.

To access the data on the drive, you can try to install the hard drive on another computer.

Hope it helps.

Please rate this solution if found useful.

Best regards,

Advent netbook windows not loading on switch on


You will need to do a repair install of the windows operating system. This can be problematic on netbooks with no CD drive unless you have access to an external USB CD drive and a copy of the operating system.

My friend has a advent 4211-b netbook was working fine until it would not let him load xp or reboot in any mode it just looks as if going to load then goes straight back to load windows normaly


Try to start up in Safe Mode press F8. Choose Safe Mode, when at the choice window, to select either Safe Mode Desktop, OR System Restore, chooses system restore and choose a time before you had the "Problem" and follow instructions. This should get you back.

Ensure that you dont have a virus. And if you dont and is running windows xp, go to control panel and locate the display icon and then change your background image from there.
