Hi hopefully someone can help, I have a Sony laptop which when I try to boot to the desktop it stays active for approx. 60 secs and then shuts down. A message pops up  " windows didn't start properly and is shutting down". If I try to reboot again, it flashes to the desktop and then closes down. I have tried Safe mode, but it doesn't load, just shuts down.

Sadly, it sounds like your operating system files are damaged.

 

Do you have an installation disk or a repair disk for that version of Windows you can boot from? You can try a startup repair by going to the Windows Recovery console on the disk:

If that doesn't solve it, you can try a repair installation: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/3413-repair-install.html

 

If that doesn't work, you may have to do a clean install of Windows 7.
