Hi all,

I run windows 7 on a HP laptop - recently on start up I get a box

with a message "wont open" - will launch "repair" - "this will take a few

minutes and computer may open and close several times etc" .

 

This now happens regularly on start up - any suggestions to

fix the problem?

 

Many thanks

You might want to test your hard drive.  Usually if you hard drive is failing it can do weird things like that

Hi William,

Thanks for that advice - presume this requires a 'techie' to run some test,

unless there is some software...

Best regards

I'll leave the technical fix to others.

 

Right NOW, back up your personal data to some outside media while you can still access it.

Hi again Hamluis...

 

Just letting you know I ran several of the tests you suggested......

 

Including...

 

Start Up

 

Hard drive Test...etc...

 

Report showed Hard Drive was OK...

 

At the moment the computer seems to open

up OK - Windows all OK etc...

 

So I send my thanks - and I think we

can close this Post for now...

 

Again...thanks for your help...and thanks for tips from other Forum members...

 

Best regards
