REQUEST : restore boot files when Win- Vista will not start
« on: January 06, 2013, 03:47:20 PM »
Hi! 
Tweaking  is a Great program!
I have been struggling with trying to fix my win-vista home computer. The machine will NOT START independently! The only way it will start or go online is with safe mode + Networking. I have researched this problem for past 2-3 weeks, No Luck! This has happened before but the rescue disk always corrected the problem, NOT NOW. I have downloaded "restore or recover file" programs only to be hit with the disclaimer that you can only repair a ridiculously minimal amount of files and am prompt to go to their website to buy the full version of their product. OH Lord! I "Hate" when software companies call their programs "Free" then screw you over like that. :teeth:

If there could be an add-on on to restore boots files, or diagnose why the computer cannot start on its own,  it would be  a day in Heaven for me. "Help!" :confused:
Thanks-
Starry  :wink:

That would be a hard add on to do lol.

But I would focus on why your having this trouble to start with. This is NOT normal for a system to do that. Which means there is a reason why it is happening.

If you like I am more than happy to dig in with you and try to find the cause. Fix the cause and the problem goes away :-)

Just start a new thread in the computer help section and we can start, up to you  :wink:

Provide error message if any...maybe you can run a repair if you have your oem vista software.

I don't get how the advanced system tweaker would be of value for this issue as you have to be able to boot into the OS successfully and run the system tweaker, which appears is not an option for you. As Shane said, you have other issues beyond the capabilities of this app so fix that problem before trying to do stuff with the system tweaker first.
I'm new to Tweaking.com but very experienced with computers and networks since the early 90's.

RESOLVED- it was a corrupted permissions issue that tweaking corrected when I got into safe mode THANKS!
