Acer laptop not working, Cant enter safe mode and Startup Repair fails
I have tried startup repair which didn't work either. I don't have a repair CD.
I hope you understand what I am trying to say as I am typing this message at work while remembering what the laptop did. I don't have a repair CD but could I buy one if that's the solution?
What's wrong... Please write below.
My inspiron laptop running Windows 7 64-bit recently started crashing at start up and telling me to use startup repair but it keeps not working. I tried safe mode and I was able to get into my computer all my files safe and still there. while in, I used the OS to make a windows 7 64bit repair disk.
Now I'm trying to boot normal but I'm getting the deathly startup repair. it goes normal. gets to the windows 7 animation where it starts up. flashes a blue screen with white type on it for a split second then restarts saying it needs to run startup repair.
I think I can get into safe mode and see all my files. most important right now is that I keep all those files. I have the repair disc and currently am posting this from a different laptop.
is it odd that safe mode works but this startup repair thing is still there? this just happened and I panicked.
So I know I can use the repair disk. but I just want to repair the "startup" part apparently it ALL works fine when I boot in safemode. so. is there a way I can use the disk and keep my files all the same?
--also the root problem may have been caused by "smartdefrag" it was the last thing I remember using.
My laptop started up in safe mode randomly and just went along. I tried to do a System Restore but then it shut down suddenly. I booted it up again and this time, the laptop lasted shorter than usual. I have also tried other options, like "Last Known Good Configuration" and "Startup Repair".
When I click on "Startup Windows Normally", it still goes into safe mode. I've tried doing a few things in safe mode and even that does not work. I tried going into Device Manager etc and there is no time to do anything as the laptop just dies off.
My wifes laptop fails at startup. Startup Repair says it cannot fix the problem, I have used System Restore at several different restore points and it completes successfully but it still won't start even in safe mode.
I have an identical machine and made a boot disk. I ran check disk, memory tests, and hard drive tests which all passed. Here is the error log that Windows gives me.
I am having issues with the comp, a friend built the computer for me quite sometime ago, for some reason recently I started getting random startup repair pops upon startup. it went one step further, during the startup repair, it stated could not repair due too then gave a list of error codes all of which were 0x0 until it got down to the bottom where it listed the code 0x490.
When I try to do any type of other repair nothing works.
Have tried repairing via command prompt to no avail. I am able to get into safe mode. However if I restart and try to get into normal windows mode, the computer acts like it's disconnected from the monitor, I get the standard win startup chimes, however nothing to the monitor.
I'm having a few problems with my laptop, its an Acer Aspire 5735 and have not long put windows 7 32 bit onto it, it has been working fine for about a week or 2 now and last night I turned it on and it would not start up at all.
I have tried starting it up normally but that fails to work, it gets to Starting Windows and just freezes there, nothing happens at all. Also I have tried the Windows Startup Repair (recommended) and that fails to work as well it just gets to microsoft corporation and just freezes there aswell, I have tried booting up from the CD but that fails as well, it gets to loading windows files then freezes at the end again. I have tried network boot as well and this fails also.
I also posted another topic - Laptop Will Not Load -
I have tried to run startup repair but it fails with an error cause 0x45d Acer Aspire V5-471
I wanted to go into safe mode on windows 7 but it kept stopping at classpnp.sys . After reading a few threads I read about using Msconfig and checking the safe mode option under "Boot". It still keeps staying at classpnp.sys and when I hit F8 and hit "Last Known Good Configuration (advanced)" it seems to be able to get trough and it says it's actually loading up safe mode but then it changes to a black screen and does not change from that screen.
If any of you know a command I could type in cmd to bring up the msconfig while in repair mode I could fix it because all I need to do is untick "Safe mode on startup"
However I woke up to what seemed to be a dead battery the other morning. So I plugged in, however when I powered on the laptop would not get to the Windows 7 screen:
- It would go to the first screen with the white Acer logo
- Then a line would flash a few times on the very top left of the screen
- Then the screen goes black
- Touching the power button here kills it instantly.
A quick Google brought up a number of things to try, the most legitimate seemed to be booting in safe mode and to try repair from the Windows 7 disk.* Booting in safe mode, which I was told is F8, did nothing, brought me to the same blinking curser than blank screen. The repair failed and told me: [LINK]
So where do I go from here? Obviously I want to get this unit running again, if nothing else, get what's on the hard drive off.
I accessed the startup controls and went into boot. Cannot remember how I did this. I was checking on an answer from the action center. Now I can no longer bring this startup tasks back up, to disable safe mode. My network will not work on safe mode.
So just a few hours ago my sisters laptop was working fine and I was only on facebook checking my email. I then shut it off to watch some tv and stuff. Then, when my sister turns on her laptop, it takes a long time to get to the log in screen, so she got mad and went to her room.
She blamed me because I was using it, but I was only on it for an hour. So basically, it's all up to me to fix it. So I try going on safe mode with networking, but a blue screen pops up everytime it stops at Class PNP.
So then I try to launch start up repair since it was recommended, but the repairing is taking a long time to start.
