So here's the deal, my GF's 3 year old HP laptop, a Pavilion dv6000 series, suddenly stopped booting correctly yesterday, every time it boots, a message appears saying:
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:
1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next".
3. Click "Repair your computer".
If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.
Info: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing, or corrupt."
If I press enter, it then shows the OS I want to load, when I select Windows 7 Home Premium, the same message appears.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
