Stuck in continuous diagnostic start uo mode with no networking

  1. I tried to change the setting back to Normal Start up, however the laptop refuses to do so. When I try to tick on 'Make all boot settings permanent' it constantly makes me choose Selective start up. Also there is no networking in diagnostic mode, or in Safe Mode with Networking.

    Hello, try this:
    1) Boot into safe mode.
    2) Type into the start menu (or run in Windows XP) "msconfig".
    3) On the first tab, select "Normal Startup".

    That should ensure a normal boot process and not a selective one.

    I've tried that as well, but it just boots up in a diagnostic mode again :(

    If you're able to login to safe mode with networking, go so system restore.
    restore to date prior to problem and reboot after prompted.

    If I am not mistaken you don't need networking to do that.
