I was trying to restore my pc to an earlier date and while in the process I accidentally switched off the power. Anyway now the laptop (Sony Vios with Windows 8 OS) cannot boot up.

Every time I switch on the laptop it turns blue wit a "automatic repair" on the screen with two options: 1.shutdown and 2: Advanced option.

None of the advance option is working. Please help

Hi,

 

Have you tried booting the laptop in safe mode?

 

Thanks

 

Steve

Unlike versions of Windows prior to Windows 8.1 you can not boot into Safe Mode unless you have previously enabled the F8 key for this function by using the bcdedit /set {default} bootmenupolicy standard command in the Command Prompt.  You can enabled Windows 8.1 to boot into Safe Mode in System Configuration by click/tap on the Boot tab and then place a check in the Safe Boot box, then click/tap of Apply, the OK.

 

If kwins_black hasn't done either of these they will not be able to make these changes since they can't boot into Windows.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
