When I turn on the laptop, the asus screen comes up and it seems to be booting but after a long while shows an error and restsrts never actually booting up


While it starts to boot up, press the ESC key, or appropriate key that allows you to enter into setup. From the setup area, look for an option to boot into safe mode or into a Command Prompt. Once in safe mode, if it works, press start, and go to run and enter CMD. In this window type in bootrec /fixmbr and press enter. Next type in bootrec /fixboot and press enter. Restart your computer normally.

If you can start in the command prompt, enter in the same commands.

Also if you have a windows recovery or windows installation disk you can access the command prompt as well as fix any issues that are cauing your machine to not boot.
Here is a step by step guide on how to solve such problems.

My laptop is Acer and it is showing like "we apologize for the inconvinence, but windows is not starts successfully" and showing some options like safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with...


Here's the step by step on how I fixed this particular problem:
First, boot the computer into safe mode with command prompt. To do this, start the computer, and immediately begin pressing the F8 key at one second intervals. You may have to press several times until the boot menu comes up.
Use your arrow keys to choose Safe Mode with Command Prompt and press enter.
The computer will begin booting. Lots of weird looking white text will scroll by and then the computer will ask you to login or give you a box saying safe mode is running, etc.
Click Ok to finish loading. A black command window will appear with a c: prompt.
At that c: prompt, type chkdsk c:/r and press enter.
Check disk will start to run but then it will say:
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process. Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts? (Y/N)
Type Y for yes, and press enter. Then reboot the computer into normal mode. Chkdsk will start when Windows begins loading again. Let all 5 phases run and don't use or turn off the computer. (The chkdsk process may take an hour or more to finish.)
Chkdsk finds any corrupted files that are causing the problem and fixes them. Read the results of each phase as it finishes. During the final phase, it will notify you if it finds any corrupted files.
When the Check Disk is done, it will finish loading Windows.

I cant get laptop to start up!


LOL, when will consumers ever learn to stop being so quick to go out and buy the latest and supposedly greatest operating systems? Windows 7 is so much like Vista with the problems of Startup Repair not working and losing devices, etc.

You reinstalled windows and it still does not work?

Ok, after Startup Repair tells you it cannot repair the problem. Click the option that takes you to the Recovery Menu to see other options. Down at the bottom select the Command Prompt.

When the command prompt window opens (black screen with white writing) they the command:

sfc /scannow then press Enter

When Sfc (System File Checker) finishes run the Check Disk Utility ( I ran one this week on someones computer that was doing the same thing and Check Disk ran for 3 hours, but it fixed the problem).

To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

You will need to open a command prompt in administrator mode. You can do that by right clicking the Command Prompt in the list

Start | All Programs | Accessories

Right click on "Command Prompt "then to "Run as Administrator".

Once you have an administrator command prompt open, type in the following:

sfc /scannow (space between "c" and "/") hit <enter>
