Can't Boot issue.

my laptop was getting really laggy and slow so I decided to restart. Then it got stuck on the starting windows screen. Then I tried booting into safe mode but it gets stuck on aswRvrt.sys. then I tried startup repair but then it gets stuck with a black screen with a green loading bar and Microsoft Corporation. I have another laptop but the stuff on this one is really vital for my studies. Thank You

Have you tried system restore?

If that doesn't work, then your only real option is to take the hard drive out, put it in another pc and retrieve your vital data and then re-install windows, either with the built in restore option that most laptops have or with a windows dvd/usb jump drive. Sorry to hear you're having problems.

Thank you for your concern. How can I do system restore by the way. Also does that mean I will lose all my data?

No, system restore will restore your computer to a previous state, usually within the last few week in which it was still running correctly. It should not affect your personal data. When your computer boots(after bios screen) hit f8 and there should be an option in that menu. I can not remember the one offhand, however, I know it is in there somewhere. You may have to go to a repair option of some sort to get to it. What version of windows are you running?

*edit*
you must make sure that you hit f8 before windows starts to boot or you won't get into the menu

okay I'll try that. I pressed f8 and there was no system restore so I chose startup repair because I believe that shows a menu with system restore. Is that correct. Also I'm not on that menu yet. It's still loading the files.

After all that starts up and you select the keyboard thing and put in your username password if you have one, you'll be presented with 5 options. It is the 2nd option called system restore. If there are several restore points to select from. I suggest the 2nd newest one, since that will guarantee that you go back far enough to hopefully pull you out of the situation that you are in now.

I think the hard drive needs replacing since it it says no restore points and it also doesn't recognise one. I'll buy one tomorrow.
