Dell Inspiron 1545 Won't boot into safe mode or boot at all.

All it does is boot to startup repair. I am NOT willing to do a clean install of Win7x64! I have to much important stuff on this laptop and do not have enough space to store it on anything else.

If you have a lot of important stuff on the laptop then it's imperative you get an external hard drive large enough to hold it. Murphy's law will strike with vengeance if you don't. Back it up now before you lose it.

Once you have it backed up then you can try things to fix this. Until then you are risking your precious data.

Hi Jake1211,

It is always advisable to make a backup of the data on the system. If you have used dell datasafe once you have received the system then try this to restore the system:
