    I am having trouble with my netbook (I'm writing this on my wii so excuse my spelling) it begins to start but then goes to a black screen w/ 2 options
    1. run startup repair
    2.start normally
    if I start normally it just goes to a black screen w/ a mousepointer when I run the repair it tells me it cannot fix automatically w/ problem details (which I do not understand) and asks if I want to send info to Microsoft??? what should I do next? Thank you to all who help
    Welcome!

    I suggest a system restore to get to a point before the troubles began.

    I tried a system restore and it failed because file \Windows\system32\halmacpi.dll is missing or corrupt and asked me to insert windows installation disc and reset the computer, I have neither the disc, or a disc drive as this is my netbook. Any suggestions?

    Hello Broseph, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    If you have a USB flash drive, then you could use OPTION TWO in the tutorial below to create a "System Repair Disc" on the USB flash drive to use to boot from and try doing a system restore at boot instead.

    Hope this helps,

    Ii Grub is the problem


    I have a XP, 7 UBUNTU triple OS that wouldnt boot after an update and the only command that restored access to the windows installations was this;

    1. Boot from CD

    2. Insert WIN/ restore disc

    3. Choose command prompt

    4. Write: bootsect /nt60 ALL /force /mbr

    That seem to have wiped the corrupt GRUB and made the OS menu return.

    Im no techie so you have to explain if this is a good or bad advice, but this helped me where the WIN7 repair disc auto repair didnt.

    Hello Jack, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    Press and hold the power button in until power shuts off for the computer, then release the power button. Afterwards, press the power button as usual to turn the computer back on. If you are prompted by the "Recovery from power loss" screen at boot, select to do a normal startup.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    If you have a retail Windows 7 installation disc, then you can boot off of it to do a Startup Repair instead.

    How do I launch startup repair in Windows 7?


    I have no disc and Brink says that although startup repair is built in it won't activate w/o an error. So what good is it? If there's no error then why won't the sytem start and why won't Firefox 3.6.15 launch either?? Does anyone know an answer? Thanks I hope- Jack
