system repair runs on start up.. how to make it stop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there...

    I have been working on my son's computer now for hours and still no luck, so thought I would come here.


    Everytime I try and boot the computer up it takes me to system repair, it scans and always finds a problem and will not fix it. I can not get windows to boot at all. I have also tried to do a factory repair and will not allow me to do so.


    Any ideas on how to fix this issue????


    thanks for your time and thoughts
