Windows Vista Home Premium
On a Dell Inspiron 1525, laptop.
Processor: Intel(R) Pentium(R) Dual CPU T2330 @ 1.60GHz 1.60 GHz
Memory (RAM): 2.00 GB
System Type: 32-bit Operating system
It says the Recovery (D:) has 50% free and OS (C:) has 70% free.
I haven't recently installed or uninstalled anything. I have AVG Free 8.0 and Lavasoft Ad-Aware both of which are up to date.
Right, I'm not sure if you need to know all that but anyway, here is my problem.
I keep having trouble starting up my computer. Once it is on it works fine. But I repeatedly get to the screen that asks me to do start up repair. I try this which then doesn't work. So I try it again. Still doesn't work.
Then I try the advanced options and try to fix it using the options there. Still doesn't work.
Trying to reset to an earlier version which worked doesn't work. And when I do that it says it can't find the D (drive? disk?).
When I try to reload/recover to a saved version/backup (I'm not sure I'm describing that right) it says there is no version saved.
This keeps happening over and over and seems to be getting worse. And THEN! after I've spent approximately 30 minutes trying to start up and going through various different things - IT STARTS FIRST TIME! I realise that that should be a good thing but it is driving me up the wall! Why do I have all these problems and then it starts with no trouble?!
Please help before I throw my lap top out of the window! xD
Also, here is a copy I made of the problem it says happened. I'm not sure if this is the same problem it always has as I only thought to copy the problem details this one time.
