  • Question

  • I have come accross this error today - system has been working fine - no problems - no new hardware or software has been installed - exact error message reads as follows:

    Windows failed to start.  A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

    1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer
    2. choose language settings and then click 'next'
    3. click 'repair your computer'

    I have my istallation disc, and have inserted it, however, it is not being picked up and I cannot do anything at all - there is no blue screen or anything like that - I have had  a look at the other threads but they don't appear to be exactly the same as my problem and I can't find a solution - please help!!
