Vista startup problems

May 1, 2011 at 08:39:28
Specs: Windows Vista family premium, Pentium E2160/2Gb
Since new (about two years ago) this computer has very occasionally failed to boot up and I have had to use the startup repair system to get it going. When I use the startup repair system and view the error log it always says that it was an "unspecified configuration error".
Shrug of the shoulders and on we go, until today that is when every time I try to start it up it won't boot unless I go through the above procedure. I have tried restoring to a previous date but the result is the same. Anyone any ideas?
Thanks in advance

why not upgrade to windows 7. You will be much happier.
Be sure to use the windows 7 advisor before upgrading to make sure your PC will function fine.

Thanks for that XpUser4Real, This is the "nuclear option" and I might have to take your advice.
But I seem to have been here before "Ohh you have problems with DOS 3...upgrade to DOS4. Ohh you have problems with DOS5...upgrade to Windows etc etc" One of these days I'll get a computer that works as well as my car does with its original engine, gearbox, handbrake etc etc for ten years or so without upgrading anything!
