HI

Im Running Win7 64bit and every time i turn on my system it goes to the page where it ask to select start up repair or start windows normally.

I had the same issue with Win8.1 64bit earlier and i thought i was the OS and removed Win8.1 and installed WIn7 64ultimate, but no luck.

 

When I try to start windows normally, as soon as the windows logo animation appears, a blue screen very briefly flashes (So brief I can't read the message).
Then I am directed to another screen which indicates my options as either commencing the Startup Repair or Start Windows normally. If I start the Startup Repair, the process is not able to fix the problem automatically.

I tried restoring the system using backup restore points but no luck again. 

I hope someone can help :-) and thank you in advance!

Can you tell us the model name or number of the Lenovo computer so that we can do some research.

I have tried using Lenovo rescue and recovery to fix it with no luck.

 

 

You cannot use this type of disk on anything other than the specific model of Lenovo computer that it is intended for.

 

Can I ask what type of disk was used to install Windows 7 on the computer and from where it was obtained.

 

We also need more information about the computer hardware, post the brand and model name or number for the motherboard, any add on video card, the hard drive and the power supply.

 

As per my reply #2

No problem regarding the Lenovo disk but it is important that we know exactly what type of disk it was that you used to install Windows 7, what you describe as happening could be a failed installation due to a bad HDD or the installation software itself being bad, as you had the same problem with Windows 8.1 it may point more towards a flaky HDD and this would be reinforced if the Windows 7 disk you got from your friend was either a full retail or an OEM disk, if the disk was a burned copy it could be bad and not have installed properly, this makes it harder to determine if it is the HDD or not, can you tell us the exact type of disk and if you have purchased your own product key from Microsoft, if you have your own product key we can help you with downloading your own Windows 7 ISO which will allow you to do a good, clean, fresh install.

 

Hardware details acknowledged, for now though we should look at the type of disk used and/or the HDD that the OS was installed on.

As a retail disk was used I suggest that the HDD is tested first, you can use Seatools for DOS for this as Toshiba support is not too clever, download and "how to use" details here

 

What about the Microsoft product key, do you have one.
