Windows 7: Windows Startup Repair Option not showing.

Windows Startup Repair Option not showing.

I am currently using a work issued Windows 7 Enterprise laptop.


It has been experiencing problems with boot, this same thing has happened before and i was able to fix it using the "Startup Repair (recommended)" option.

This time however it has problems that prevent boot that apear exacaly to same as before but each time it restarts it does not show Startup Repair option and instead goes right to the windows splash screen.

I do not have administrator access so i can not simply press F8 and go to Systen Repair and select to option from there because an administrator password is required.

Anyway, can I use my limited account in safemode to force the startup repair to run on boot?

Giving the computer to a work related technition is not currently an option.

Thanks In advance.

Welcome to Seven Forums septic. I believe you are getting no responses because it is a work issued PC, and you do not have administrator access. While giving the PC to work related tech may not be an option. Consulting said tech would seem to be feasible, and a prudent approach when dealing with a company owned product. A Guy
