Windows 7: Please help - always startup issues...

Please help - always startup issues...

Hi all,

got a new PC with windows 7. Every time I boot it goes into startup repair only to never find an issue, I then restart and it's ok. Have disable all the startups (which solved the problems for a couple of days) so it's not anything interrupting the boot. Just getting a bit tedious.

Swear at me if you will but I got my PC at PC World, its an Advent PTG9003W7 a couple of months ago. It's all new and initially there wasn't a problem. Don't want to get it repaired as I can't afford for it to be taken away plus there's probably only a tweak required.

any suggestions??

Do you have boot logging enabled?
If yes, then locate and go through your boot log to identify the problem. It is located in C:\windows\Ntbtlog.txt.
If not, run MSCONFIG. Click on "Boot" tab and at the bottom, check the box "Boot Log".

Check whether you have boot log checked in msconfig, as explained in my previous post.
Check whether you have a file called ntbtlog.txt in C:\windows.

Every time you boot into windows, a log is created. The log file can give you a lot of information about the state of drivers and bootability of your system. It lists all the drivers and services loaded at boot and help you identify problems.

cheers Bill2, so how can Iaccess this log? Assume that if I posted it on here the well-informed would be able to make sense of it a bit better?
