OH Great Repair Guru's who have fixed my computer from certain death several times, I now bring to you a problem i have not seen before. I searched a little for a solution but sadly have given up in frustration.
Vista is my operating system.. thats about all i can remember.
when you turn on the computer it shows the normal DELL screen with the F2 Setup and F12 Boot in the top right hand corner...
then it goes to a gray ugly screen and says, "unable to start windows" begin Start up repair...
it runs for a while, i assume it is uploading all my data to some foreign country....
Then it comes on and says "start up repair can not repair automatically" would you like to send this info to Microsoft"
Startup Repair V2
1 u fail over
5 bad patch
os version 6.0.6001.2.1.0.256.1
Then it offers to System Restor files to a previous date....
then it runs a while...
then it says
System restore did not complete successfully your compters system files were not changed
system restore failed due to an unspecified error
cannont create a file when that file already existst (0x800700b7)
Now i have options of
start up repair
windows complete pc restore
windows memorty diagnostic tool command prompt.
I wait for your great knowledge and expertise.
