Original Title: Windows Vista Startup Not Working
I have Windows Vista Home Premium, and I have had it for 5 years now (2006-) The problem is that I dont know what happened, but when it restarts, I have two options;
Start Startup Repair (Recommended)
Start Windows Normally
When I choose "Start Windows Normally," a blue screen pops up, with an error message, and dissapears quickly, leading me to restarting my Vista again. On the other hand, when I choose to launch the startup repair, it takes a while, and after a bit, it asks if i want to send the error to microsoft (recommended) and i choose yes, and it takes a little bit more time to look for a solution. Finally, a list of appropriate actions appear;
Startup Repair; I have tried this 8 times now, and it cannot find a solution, leading me to restart once again.
System Restore; I have tried ALL the restore dates, and none of them worked. I got an error saying it cannot restore.
CompletePC Restore; 1. I do not have a backup disk (its a shame, i know) and 2. I do NOT want to back up , and loose all my files.
Windows Memory Diagnostic Tools; I checked for any hardware errors, and none were found.
Command Prompt; I have no idea what to do with this.
If anyone can PLEASE assist me out, i would be MUCH thankful. I have very old memories and photos on this computer and I do NOT want to lose these. I am begging for anyone to assist me, and my last priority would be to forget all these photos and files and move on :( . Oh, and i HAVE tried to run safe mode, by pressing and holding F8 while restarting the computer, and I highlighted Safe Mode with Networking, but it just shows a quick appearance of a blue screen, and crashes back to rebooting. Please assist me on how to do this for the sake of my IMPORTANT files, and memories.
Thanks, in advance.
