Windows 7: Start up repair does not work nor does windows 7 disk. No error messa

Start up repair does not work nor does windows 7 disk. No error messa

I have spent all day trying to get my computer to boot up. It is a Dell Latitude 6410 with factory installed Windows 7 Pro 32 bit.

I was able to fix this problem once a few days ago. I was working on my forum and decided to reboot after a windows update. It came up giving me the choice of doing a start up repair or normal start. The normal start would not work so I tried a start up repair. This took care of the problem.

This morning the same thing happened. Start up repair runs for a very long time but when I click finished it still comes back to a choice of start up repair or normal start.

The computer will not come up in safe mode. I tried using F12 to try and use the original windows 7 disk, no luck. The disk spins for a little while then nothing happens. The computer then tried to boot again off of the hard drive again.

Any advice on what to do next?

I am not sure why but the computer is working now.

I let the repair run several times and the last time it ran the log on screen came up. It ran very slow but is running better now. After the computer came back up I ran a check disk and it was ok.

I run combo fix just in case.

I wonder if it is an HD trying to go bad. This is twice this happened in one week but everything seems ok for now but it would not surpise me if the problem comes back.

Is there a hard drive test I can do. I am going to do a full backup in a little bit.

you can start with "chkdsk /r" in the command line and to see if it finds any problems. you will have to reboot afterwards and it may take some time.

what kind of hard drive is it

That error is sometimes a result of conflicts in the Windows environment. It may be a good idea to run the lifeguard DOS tests to be sure.
