Hi sanrukh!

I've had the same problem, and here's what I recommend doing. First of all, do you have a blank disk that you can use to burn a file with?

If so, try following these directions to get into your Recovery Console.

1. Go to the following link. There will be a download at the bottom of the Paragraph to download. It has instructions on how to get to your recovery console.

I will work with you through this problem. I know it's frustrating, but work with me, and we'll get you back up and running.

Recovery Console

Evan

Hi Evan!!!
i tried running the cd but no luck this time as well....No welcome Set up screen ,no prompts,nothing......Same windows screen appears ,then a blue scree just blinks,then hp screen appears,then a blank screen with a cursor on the top left,and finally the screen with the old message "We apologise Windows did not start successfully.........."......i checked whether the cd is burned correctly.....It has the following 4 files 1386,WIN51,WIN51IC,WIN51IC.SP2....... I also checked whether CD/DVD ROM Drive is set as the first boot device in BIOS Setup.......What is wrong with my laptop????

Alright Sanrukh,

First off, my apologies that I haven't been here to help you recently.

But back to the problem

Would you mind taking a screenshot of what your computer displays when it starts up? You can do this by hitting "Print Screen", to the right of F12 and left of Scroll Lock.

Then upload that photo onto an image hosting site and post the link, so I can get a visual as to what we're working with here.

Thanks,
Evan
