Windows did not start successfully


Recommended Posts

When I started my PC it gave all the appearance of starting normally and then got the dreaded message that Windows did not start successfully.


It gave some options that were to let Windows start normally which I did. It

counted down 29 secs and then went back to the Windows not start successfully message.


Another option was to go to the last known good configuration but that just returned me to the Windows not start successfully message.


I tried Safe Mode and that produced a page of rows of -:


Multi (0) disk (0) ;partition (1)\ Windows\System, 32\ Drivers………..


These rows stuck on the screen and I had to turn off the PC.


Thjere were two other options but I did not know what they do


Safe Mode with Networking

Safe Mode with Command Prompt


On the boot up screen there is Esc -= Boot Menu F1 = Set Up and F10 = System Recovery


Esc took me back the Windows not starting message

F1 took me to a set up screen

F10 appeared not to work.


I have some important documents in My Documents that I do not want to lose.


Can anyone help please?
