    As Raybay says give the brand and model of computer....

    Also have you change any hardware recently in the computer?

    By brand do you mean like Gateway cause thats what i have.

    I don't now what kind of motherboard I have and I have not installed any new hardware or software.

    How do I find the kind of motherboard i have?

    This happened to me twice but I used a the Gateway Restore DVD to fix it but it doesnt work a second time.

    Also tried using the disk and going to command prompt and typing chkdsk and chkdsk /f (no errors show up).

    Update:

    when i try to use the "Last Good Configuration" option it says the following message:

    Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

    \Windows\system32\config\System


    Age:

    About 4-5 years that I had originally bought the Computer
