Hello folks... I am a first time user...amd I am in great need of some serious help. I have just returned from Las Vegas and I have two laptops both a personal and business that have stopped working since I came through security in Vegas....This is the message I am getting
We apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly or was automatically shut down to protect your files, and 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 are not sure what caused the problem choose start windows normally.
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe mode with command prompt last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Start windows normally
Use the up and down arrow keys to highlight to your choice.
And then it goes to a Countdown until windows starts.
I have tried every option...Both computers are doing the same thing...I am a little suspicious about that since they were operating properly while I was in Vegas....I am more concerned about my personal computer...because I need to get the data off. Its an Averatec and the recovery disk is built into the hard drive...I am at a loss of what to do without losing my data...and no...I do not have a backup...Yes...lesson learned.... Any ideas????
