February 10, 2015 at 03:42:06
Specs: Windows 7
This is a Dell 32bit laptop, for no apparent reason it will no longer open.
Here`s what happens
1. I switch on and get windows logo [no sound]
2. Then goes to Dell Latitude screen loads files
3. Then Window error registry 2 choices Repair [recommended] or Start normal
4. After few seconds goes into repair, then message, start up repair can not fix, then switches off pc
5. If i select Start Normally it repeats styeps 1-4
I have a 32 bit windows repair disc and have gone through this many times with same out come as above.
I have tried safe start but same as above, even safe start with prompt but it still stuck in 1-4 loop as above.
I have a windows 7 64 bit disc but do not want to do a clean install as i need to save some files on the disc. Anybody got any ideas. Thanks.

Can you get in the BIOS and do a "set to default"?
Is the time and date correct when you are in BIOS?
How old is this laptop?

The laptop is a refurb, still under suppliers warranty. I have been talking to them for the past week and we have tried all sorts of things. There is not a reset bios option just a reset to defaults, which i have tried and still have the same problem
Thanks for taking the time to reply if all else fails it will have to go back to them. I remember before all this happened i would see a box on start up saying something about corrupt disk or something like that, but i didnt know what it was so ignored it.

Hi. I have downloaded from this link but only seem to have a diagnostic tool to speed up pc, remove virus etc, which i already have, then before it will remove it is asking me to upgrade and make a payment. I already have this type of software on this pc, and i do not see how it can help in booting up my laptop?

"but i didnt know what it was so ignored it"
Never ignore warnings, put the EXACT message into Google.

If you are talking to me, you have downloaded the wrong program.

I gave you this screenshot so you could see what to do.

If you downloaded from an ad on this site first disable the showing of ads: Click on 'my computing.net' in the right column of this page and on the page that opens click 'settings'. Then on that page check 'Disable In-Text links and Most Ads on the site'. Then below the biography box click 'set/change'.

Then uninstall whatever it was you downloaded.

On another machine, create a CD with Seatools from Seagate DOS version (ISO image) and boot to that. Run the short test to verify that your hard drive is bad.
If the hard drive is good, use the Repair Disk to initiate a System Restore from a saved restore point on your hard drive, preferably a week or two before the problem began. Then run Malwarebytes to make sure that you do not have malware that caused the warning and the issue.
If the hard drive is bad, you will need to replace it and reload from recovery disk set available from where you got it ---- or better, let them do it for you under warranty.
If the drive is bad but shows some sings of life, Immediately shut down and move the hard drive to a working desktop machine as a secondary drive (internal or external) and copy off any files you need as fast as you can before it gets worse.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
