Hi, I want some advice on a startup issue with my computer. It comes up with the following error message -

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: 1 insert windows installation disc and restart the computer 2 choose your language settings and then click next 3 click replair your computer.

I don’t have the disc - if I buy a new one, will I be able to restore my computer?

If anybody has any advice it would be very much appreciated!

Thanks

Jodi

Try to go back in time with 'system restore' windows normally take a small image of your configuration before it makes changes to software, have you fitted any new hardware recently.

The hard disk is not well cooled, resulting in too high temperature during operation. 3. Switching the machine incorrectly, to the voltage is unstable (such as frequent forced shutdown and so on.) 4.
