I have a Lenovo laptop with Windows 7 which refuses to boot in normal or safe mode. I can access the repair console but this fails to find the cause of the problem. After one run of startup repair one of the messages stated that the registry was corrupt. Can anyone help me out or am I going to have to perform a clean install?

Have you tried booting into last known good configuration from the advanced boot options? ( same menu you would boot to safe mode from.)

Hi mrbeach,


Can you provide additional information? When did this problem arise? Do you recall the installation of any programs or events prior to this?


One of the things you could try is to repair or replace missing or corrupt files by using system file checker.


Did you try Command Prompt ? Can you open ? If so, open and type sfc /scannow and hit enter.
