The screen popped up with a message saying that my laptop needs to be repaired. It said the boot could not startup because a file might be corrupted. It also said that I needed a repair dvd. I heard that a system repair dvd could help, but I didn't download one beforehand. Is there any way to make one for my laptop? Can I go into safemode? Will my data still be retrieved and saved? I have windows 10. It is an asus laptop, not sure what version sorry.

It's been awhile since I have had to repair a Windows OS as I no longer use Windows OS.

 

If I remember there should be some repair and recovery tools in the startup menu or safe mode to do a complete repair or a full recovery.

You didn't post whether you can boot into Windows or not.  If you can run [sfc /scannow from the Command Prompt.

 

Please run System File Checker
 
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

Important:  There will be a short message at the end of the scan informing you of the results.  If you receive the message "no integrity violations were found" you don't need to do anything else, no corrupt files were found.  You should watch the scan to see the results at the end of the scan.

This needs to be run using an Administrator account.  

You should not do anything else with the computer while this scan is running.  Do not stop the scan as this can damage Windows files.

You will need to open the Command Prompt to run the sfc /scannow.  The easiest way to do this is to press the Windows key windowskey_zps092d5c75.png and the X key.   A menu will open with the option Command Prompt (Admin), click on this.  This will open the Command Prompt.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.

You will see an image similar to the one below.

Copy and paste the command below in the Command Prompt, then press Enter.

sfc /scannow

This scan will take a while to run, please do not abort the scan as this can result in damage to the operating system.

If integrity issues are found in the scan please post the CBS log using the instructions below.

To find sfc /scannow log click/tap on File Explorer, select

This log usually is very large, for this reason you should use a host website like Dropbox to post the log.  You can start a free 30 day trial.  Once you have loaded the log at Dropbox post a link to the website.
 


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