My Laptop Wont Boot Up! I Need Help

  RobertOmar 22:55 15 Jan 2017

So to start off my laptop is windows 7 asus, its had a few problems recently which were minor. Then today i overload of problems, it started off where i couldnt restore my computer to an older restore point because there were problems in the files. Then after that i came by a problem of which everytime i booted up windows when it said starting windows it would pause then crash and restart and do it constantly. I was thinking about buying a disk off amazon that would contain a system image for me to restore my laptop off. Just to see if i could save money i tried using a CD as a repair disc and it made things worse because it then everytime i booted my laptop it would say "bootmgr is missing" so i go to BIOS to take the cd out of the boot order but i cant access it because i need to signed in as a administrator to access all the things but the thing is that i cant boot it up to sign in.

You do not need a working Windows disk to acces the BIOS, just the BIOS password if there is one.

  3. If you have a dual boot system a Boot option menu will appear. Highlight the Windows operating system and Press the F8 key

  4. An Advanced Tools menu options screen will now appear

  5. Highlight the repair Your Computer option and Press Enter

  6. Select a keyboard layout, and then Click the Next button
