So last night i shut off the computer when i come how from work. The next morning i keep getting this message when i reboot.

We appologize for the inconvience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent haedware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shutdown to protect your files and folders choose last known good configuration to revert to the most recent setting that worked.

If previous start up attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the power or reset button was pressed or if you arent sure what caused the problem, choose start windows normally.

*Safe mode
*Safe Mode with networking
*Safe mode with command prompt

*Last known good configuration

*Start windows normally


I try all the options and it just keeps rebooting to this screen. I can't get on the computer at all. No prompts show up when i try to get to safe mode. Does anyone know what I can do?

Did you install any new hardware or software before shutting it down? Updated drivers,games,programs,etc. Or new RAM, new CPU, anything of that nature?

Nothing really. The only thing I can think of was that I was running a torrent that I forgot to close before it shutdown. Nothing new.

You may have bad memory. This can be a factor to a bad boot.. And it seems to be the case since you cant load anything. try using http://www.memtest86.com/. Its a stand alone scanner for bad memory.

If one of the options in your boot up option screen is something like:

Disable automatic restart after error

Then choose that one. Then as your computer encounters an error it will not reboot, but rather stop at a blue screen. Write down everything on the blue screen and post it here in the forum.
