I have a acer aspire timelineX running windows 7 and jus recently when I turned it on, it popped up with a screen that said windows failed to start, a recent hardware or software change might be the problem. It gave me2 choices on a black screen "start windows normally or launch startup repair.
I clicked start windows normally, because I thought it might just be cuz I turned it off by holding the power button. it then went to the starting windows icon, loaded that, then it went to the blue screen of death for 1 second, then restarted.
So the I clicked launch startup repair. It gave me a loading bar across the bottom and said "windows is loading files...". It loaded and then the screen went black for a bit. After that, it came to the user name screen (blue screen with a leaf and a hummingbird, couple lines) yet there were no users...I could move the mouse and it was fully loaded but nothing to select.
I looked on utube and it said to press f8 while booting up and select safe mode, so I tried this, and it loaded windows files, and stopped at "windows/system32/DRIVERS
/CLASSPNP.sys" then it did what the repair did, went blue screen of death for a second, then restarted. Please help me!
