Hey looking for some help and think this could be the right section. I am running windows 7 on a Asus k50in laptop but on going to start it up today windows would not load up, I had to force a restart at which point it ran a system scan and rebooted at which point I ran a system repair which advised it had completed a repair but restarted and kicked in again, it again tried a repair then restarted. At this point it advised it could not repair automatically, and on each restart I do it just kicks straight in to system repair. The details it gives for the problem even are as follows: event name -startuprepairoffline, signature 01 -6.1.7600.16385, signature 02 - 6.1.7600.16385, signature 03 - unknown, signature 04 -21200980, signature 05 - autofailover, signature 06 - 10, signature 07 -corruptregistry, os version 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1, locale is - 1033. Any instructions greatly appreciated. Thank you!
use your startup repair disks (that you created when you first got your laptop) or do a full system restore by booting to the recovery partition. googling your specific make/model and geting the manual should provide you with full directions on how do to this.
if you need to backup files first, download the manual, remove the hard drive, and connect it to another working machine with an external hard drive connection kit.

If you have access to another computer you can create a Linux boot disk and recover files via a flashdrive:
Step 1 - creating a boot disk with an alternative operating system on it.
Download lupu-525.iso from here and save it to your Desktop. It's a 128 Mb file, so it will take some minutes to download.
You then need to burn the .iso file to disk. My personal choice is InfraRecorder, available here, which is a free, GPL version 3, solution.
Step 2 - change the boot order, if you need to, so that the PC boots from the new OS rather than Windows.
When you boot the PC, the boot order is the order in which the various possibilities of finding an operating system are checked by your system. Normally the hard drive is first in line as it is usually where the OS resides. By checking this one first the PC will boot in the quickest time possible.
By changing the order the PC will check the CD drive first, and if it finds a disk with an OS on, it will boot from it. If it doesn't find one, it then looks at the second device on the list, which should be the hard drive and it will boot from that.
I change the boot order on all my machines so that if ever I need to boot from a disk I can do so without needing to access the BIOS then and there - there's usually a problem that i'm trying to deal with and adding a second or two to the normal boot time is a price worth paying to be able to instantly boot from a disk rather than have to get into the BIOS when i'm already stressed by a sick PC.
Step 3 - boot from disk and recover files.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
