Re: Laptop with windows 7 not starting and showing repair the system(recommended) message but repairing is not working
Does it give you the option to use a Restoration Point, when the Repair has run for a while? Or doesn't the Repair start at all? If it gives the Restoration Point option, use it.
You could try:
- Pressing / tapping the F8 key when the computer starts, will normally give you the option to enter Safe Mode. The tapping / pressing varies from computer to computer, so if nothing happens or something goes wrong, restart, and try again. If you get to Safe Mode, go to Control Panel\System and Security\System\System Protection\System Restore and choose a point to restore to.
- If you have a Repair disc, you may use that. If you don't, I have the picture that any Windows 7 Repair disc will do BUT YOU should perhaps wait that someone wiser verifies this.
- To get unorthodox, just plainly start, start... start... If it doesn't wake up after 50 restarts, it probably won't wake up. I have a friend who restarted more than 30 times and finally... success. After that the computer worked fine. Sometimes The computer works in mysterious ways.
Hope you get it running.
