"Windows failed to start. A


Hello,
It sounds to me like the harddrive has errors on it. First, I would try completely reinstalling windows with the windows disk. If that does not solve the problem there are several pieces of software that are much stronger harddrive repair solutions than the built in Windows one. Try this one, it is free for 10 days. You will need another computer (friend's computer?) to download and burn this software onto a CD, then put the CD in your computer and boot to it by pressing any key when it asks you to.

When i start my laptop it wont start windows, it just goes straight to a windows error recovery screen, it says windows failed to start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause. it...


I recently had the same problem. I also thought it was a windows update that caused this: forced shutdown, startup repair, etc. The last time it did startup repair it could not repair it. Lucky for me my pc still had one month of warranty left. So after leaving it with the "pro's" for a week, I called to say what's up, figured it out yet? The techs told me that they had run every diagnostic test available and all the hardware had passed safely. So I asked what it could be and they said, more than likely, that Windows Vista software had somehow become corrupted- the only repair to fix this? a complete recovery. They offered to do a recovery for me for $130- lose all info except what's on recovery partition.
(No, thanks, I'll do it myself.) Went online, found how to start recovery (Alt + Fn + F11, for my Gateway DX4710), did it myself, works fine now, haven't had a problem since.

On a side note, if your RECOVERY software becomes corrupted, you will need recovery disks to fix this. I got lucky this time, but bought a set of those (JIC) for 20$.

I now do a backup at least once a month so it won't be a TOTAL loss should it ever happen again.

As a worst case scenario, if you need to figure out how to recover your computer, looks like HP owns Compaq. You could start here:

Hope this helps.

When you boot up your computer, press the F8 key until you get some choices such as Safe Mode and Command Prompt. There will be an option for Last Known Good Configuration. Select this and hopefully it will restore your computer settings to the way it was before this happened.
