My Compaq Evo laptop has suddenly started up with the safe mode menu options. No matter which choice I make it just returns to the same menu. I have tried using the recovery disk but it doesn't give me an option to repair the os just to format the partition. I can't get to the bios I'm just stuck with this menu over and over again
Can anyone suggest anything, I don't want to lose my files
Tried that but all I get after loading is a black screen telling me that 'The recovery console provides system repair and recovery functionality. Type Exit to quit the RConsole and restart the computer'. Then a C prompt.
If I type Exit I end up back to were I began with the safe mode options. Tried to enter Windows at the prompt but it just says The command not recognised Type help for a list of supported commands
it means, Windows installation is not found. One of the possible reasons, would be bad hard drive. Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.tacktech....ay.cfm?ttid=287 In any case, you're facing Windows reinstall, but running above test is crucial, because, if the hard drive is bad, then it doesn't make sense to try Windows reinstallation.
