Tried everything to boot your Windows based system, but it is still unbootable? Unable to find out the exact cause for unbootability of your system? The most obvious cause for the above scenarios is severe damage in file system. In most cases of file system corruption, a Windows user encounters a boot error message that does not allow him/her to access the data saved in the hard drive. Few major causes of corruption in file system are improper system shutdown, virus attack, application malfunction, and operating system damage. These scenarios can be easily surmounted if the user has created an adequate backup of all his hard drive data. However, in the absence of an updated backup, the user needs to opt for powerful Data Recovery solutions.
Consider, while trying to boot your Windows Vista based system, you receive an error message :
“windows failed to startup properly, a resent hardware or software change might be the cause.”
The moment the above error message pops up, the booting process stops, rendering to inaccessibility of hard drive data.
Damage in Windows file system.
To resolve the above error message, you will need to boot your system using 'Startup Repair' option. However, there is a possibility that this option may fail to boot and display the below error message:
“startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically.”
In such cases, if you wish to boot your system, then you can:
Perform a system restore to a particular restore point.
Use Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool to boot your system.
Run CHKDSK command.
Format and re-install Windows Vista operating system.
Re-installation will surmount the above error message and allow you to boot the system. Though the system becomes bootable, all the previously saved hard drive data becomes inaccessible. To access that data, you will need to opt for effective Data Recovery Software. Such data recovery tools scan a formatted Windows based hard drive and recoup all lost files.
