Windows 7: Windows won't Successfully boot

07 Mar 2016   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
Windows won't Successfully boot

This happened to me just a few minutes ago.

So I was turning on my computer, then waited for a few minutes for it to boot. But then, it was stuck in the 'Starting Windows' screen. There's a 'Starting Windows' text below, but no logo animation came up (You know, the one with the little orbs turning to logo of Windows). I tried to restart it a few times, but then the same screen appeared, only with no logo animation appearing.

Is there something I should do?

EDIT: I've ran Startup Repair a few minutes ago, and it diagnosed something along the lines of 'Won't start after driver install' or something, but it still won't boot.

Try booting in Safe Mode, it only uses the Windows basic drivers.

Yep as Davis has suggested mate and then run a sfc and chkdsk.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
Check Disk (chkdsk) - Read Event Viewer Log < I usually run the /f an /r switches as per Option 2 but the choice is yours. Plus there is this
