I have hit F8 and tried to restart it in every option available and the only thing it will do is attempt to start and then go straight into Startup Repair. I made a recovery disk from another computer, went into the BIOS and changed it to boot from CD drive, it will go into the blue Dell screen without the Startup Repair box coming up, and stay there for a minute or so, then an error box comes up with Error 0X4001100200001012. When I click on the "X", the laptop shuts down.
I've done a system recovery and everything goes fine and then when I restart, it goes directly into Startup Repair, then the "Startup repair cannot repair the system automatically" message. I did the Dell DataSafe Restore & Emergency Backup option, everything went fine, it completed successfully, then when I restarted, it went straight into Startup Repair, then the "Startup repair cannot repair the system automatically" message again!!
I'm at my wits end! Any advice?
