Hi, yeah, first post and all and I'm pretty desperate.

I booted up my computer today only to find it was slow to start and then a screen came up saying Windows failed to start successfully. I was given two options, to start normally or (recommended) launch start-up repair. I did the start-up repair, which suggests I do a recovery, which I did and when it restarts, I get the failed to start message again. I do start-up repair again and it says startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically, I get two choices: send information (recommended) or don't send. I click send and it says if you have recently attach a device like a camera remove it and restart. I haven't attached anything like that. What could the problem be here?

Can you get into Windows at all? Even into Safe Mode?
What sort of recovery did you do? Did it format your hard drive and reinstall Windows?
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
