Hi everybody i have an acer laptop that has worked fine up until a couple of days ago, when i switch it on its starts, runs for a minute or so then gives an error message then shuts down and starts again with the error message. I can get into the BIOS, so i tried using the recovery discs, which all ran perfectly, then when they had finished and the pc started again it was no different.
The message i'm getting is as follows :
"we apologise for the inconvenience but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change may have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly or was automatically shut down to protect yur files or folders, choose last known good configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.
If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the power or reset button was pressed, or if you arent sure what caused the problem, choose start windows normally.
Safe mode Safe mode with networking Safe mode with command prompt
Last known good configuration ( your most recent settings that worked )
Start windows normally"
Has anyone any idea what the problem is and if it can be fixed.
Then only thing you can try is do a Check Of the Hard Drive Double Click My Computer right click C:\Properties\Tools\Check Disk put a tick in the box to auto fix problems with the drive, reason is that if the drive as bad sectors and you run a restore disc CD it will try writing to all of disc, if it writes to bad sector these will not be readable after. So after check disk Rerun your Restore CD
your second link was not quite right, Not your words theres as it happend other day on a Medion Laptop that My Daughter as on loan from me. it as a Celeron Desktop CPU, So AMD cannot be blamed for that. I had to do a Restore with Medion Disc then found a TI Image I made after the last Updates I loaded before she started using the laptop. After Restoring the TI Image then going through the Update once again SP3 then let it settle down then I only loaded half of the updates out of 48, Restarted and then loaded other half. been no trouble since doing it that way
