I am having a problem that the windows comes up with a black background with white text and says:we apologize for the inconvinience. but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

I have the option to start windows normally, however even though my computer works, but now im getting this window every time i boot my computer!!!

can anyone help?

thx

the last error i got from application tab was about a week ago, the lastest error is at the system tab:

The Universal Plug and Play Device Host service depends on the SSDP Discovery Service service which failed to start because of the following error:
The service cannot be started, either because it is disabled or because it has no enabled devices associated with it.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.


Also another one from today:

DCOM got error "The dependency service or group failed to start. " attempting to start the service upnphost with arguments "" in order to run the server:
{204810B9-73B2-11D4-BF42-00B0D0118B56}

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/events.asp.


I have checked on a website, but its not indicated very well:

it has the exact same error as I have.

might be worthwhile to reboot in safemode to better troubleshoot. If it boots up fine its most likely something that was installed (program of some sort) or something added recently. When in safe mode your only using the core OS\system drivers\programs. If it doesn't boot properly to safe mode... bad mojo.
