Hey Gang, looks like there's some quality support on this forum - so hopefully you are able to help out for this process...
So this laptop I'm helping a friend with won't start up.
Asus U45J i5
It turns on and takes us to the black recovery page. It asks if we want to "Launch windows normally" or the recommended setting of a "Startup Repair." When you select the Start up Repair it says "Your computer was unable to start - Startup Repair is checking your system for problems..." Then it rolls on the "Attempting Repairs..." load for about 10-20 minutes. When it finishes, it says "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically."
I am able to get to a safe mode screen - but I'm not sure what to do when I reach there. I've ran a sfc scan in the Command key, but no problems came up.
I've tried doing a system restore, but it doesn't allow me. Let me know what you need in order to help me fix this - it's been an awful last few days. Thank you so much for your help!
