When Windows doesn't start or load what next?

If you have hardware issues this isn't a fix this is only if Windows needs to be recovered from a command prompt.

Here's one short tip on what you can do if Windows is not starting on your computer.

If you have hardware issues this isn't a fix this is only if Windows needs to be recovered from a command prompt.

This doesn't cover bad boot files or missing NTFS system files this is only a very general repair that sometimes will get you back into windows.

From the Command Prompt in Command Prompt Safe mode boot:
Type: C:\windows\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

How to Restore Windows Vista Operating System.

From the command line DOS prompt.

Most of us don't label our restore points so we really don't know at what point things went wrong. The best method is to always create your restore point and label it so you know what happened. Which Restore point to use? That's the difficult part.

So easy but So difficult.

Let me explain why it's difficult.
Most of us don't label our restore points so we really don't know at what point things went wrong.
Typically it's the last restore point that will fix the current issue if at all because some manufacturers are now building into their installer programs the run function to create a restore point for you.

The best method is to always create your restore point and label it so you know what happened.
Which Restore point to use? That's the difficult part in most cases.

Now the Easy Part:

Instructions:
1. From the search box type rstrui.
Or
1. From the Programs Menu click System Restore.
2. Now just follow the very easy instructions.
(Read, Left to Right, Top to Bottom.)

That's It!

If you can't get into windows then try the following.

Command Prompt Restore
1. Press F8 during boot. (startup) after your bios screen.
2. From the Microsoft Windows Menu Select Safe Mode Command Prompt Only.
3. From the command prompt line C:(To get backwards type cd.. then hit enter. Keep doint that until you are at the C:\ prompt.
4. Type: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\RESTORE\rstrui.exe and press Enter.
5. Follow the instructions.

You will see now why it would be even easier if you labeled your restore points and created restore points every time you updated, changed or installed new software and hardware.

Click Help from your start menu or from the System Restore application for some good info to follow.
