  1. My windows won't start, a small system32 box appears


    Hello!


    Today, after I pressed the power button, the windows started to boot up, I passed the Windows 10 logo screen, however I never got to the desktop screen since I received some sort of a small command prompt black box on a black screen with the following inside the box: C:\WINDOWS\system32>


    The issue is - it just stays on that screen; if I close the black box, it stays on a black screen.


    Any ideas?

    HELP! windows won't start

    Just got home today,
    turned on computer and windows won't start.

    What happens

    BIOS appears-
    loading asus express gate...
    microsoft corporation (with small loading bar)

    after the loading bar, a windows logo inscribed in a circle should appear and illuminate.
    instead i just get a movable cursor on a black screen...

    after a while it reboots and the process starts again.

    I'm suspecting its the windows update my computer installed last night as it was shutting down.


    Going into safe mode and restoring...hopefully this works.
    I'm creating this thread from my dad's laptop ><

    Any suggestion will be appreciated! *Cry :cry:

    EDIT: i forgot to mention, the first time (blank screen for 5 min) ended in a quick BSOD and reboot.
