Question about PC Desktops

I have a packard bell i media 5057, when starting up i get a massage saying windows could not start,this could be due to recent hardware/software problems, it gives me options of start windows normally, restart with last known settings that worked, i have tried both of these and nothing is working. i have had to get the recovery disks from pb put disc in and nothing happens, can you tell me how i can restore the computer to its original state. Thanks kev

When you insert the cd into the cdrom, you may have to go into the bios setup utility to make sure the cdrom is the first boot device.

Sometimes to enter set up it is <DEL> or <ESC> or <F2>

Then the problem must be a software related one. Something your adding to the system (knowingly or unknowingly) is causing this.

Install your recovery disks and immediately put on Avira Antivirus software.

Then update it from the web. ensure it checks all files on open and close. The point is i think you maybe installing something with a virus in it. better to check your system thoughout.

Avira is the best free one there is. Nothing compares.

try restoring it to an earlier setting when you know it was working.

Turn on your computer and as it is starting continuously press F8 until you here a beep this will/should start your computer in safe mode. Everything will look big on your screen, ignore that for now. Go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore and choose a date when you know that your computer was working with no problems. Once it has completed the restore it will restart your computer. If asked what mode you want to boot in press 'start windows normally'.
Hopefully this will resolve your problem.
I hope this helps
