pc was fine a few days ago, but it started slowing down. i foolishly chose to restore settings to a few days prior. unfortunately, the pc seemed to have done something different because when it started again, it showed me the startup page, but then it showed a black screen and showed me what was being loaded onto the pc. when i tried to start it i got a screen reading,
'we apologize for the inconveience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. If your pc stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked. If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally. Safe Mode; Safe Mode with Networking; Safe Mode with Command Prompt; Last Known Good Configuration; Start Windows Normallly Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.'
i tried to start windows normally, but that didn't work. so currently i am logged on the other pc in safe mode.
any help would be greatly appreciated!
