Hello fellow members, :thumbsup:
Well everytime I turn my laptop on I get a black screen that says.

We apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safemode with command prompt

Last knowns Configuration.

Start Windows Normally


Well when I click on any of these options it acts like its starting up, then this blue screen pops up for like a second that says,

stop: c0000218 { Registry File Failure }
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\system root\system32\Config\SOFTWARE
or its log or alternate
It is corrupt,absent or alternate

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance



Then it goes back to that black screen. Does anyone know how I can fix this problem? For my viao All i had to push was f12 at the startup and it went to a screen where it recovered itself, this goes to this meno called BIOS, is that a way to recover the laptop?

For starters, when you get the boot menu, choose Last Known Good Configuration. If that doesn't help, post back.

Well, I don't have good news. The damaged hive won't let you start the computer. It's not going to get better. If you have any experience at all with a DOS-like command line, you may be able to get the system functioning again. But it's tricky and takes patience. Here's one version of the fix from Kelly's Korner.

Here's more information from John Barnett. You may want to try running the chkdsk - I'd use the /f switch first. Having attempted the harder method repairs before, I can tell you that it takes quite a while to do all the typing, and you have to do it without errors.

Another option is a repair install of Windows.

Most of the solutions, except for running chkdsk, will require you to reinstall other programs because they won't work anymore after the install. (New registry, you understand.)
