Windows could not start. a recent hardware or software change might be the cause, it happened

Happened after I accidentally disconnected my mouse then after I plugged it again, it didn't work so I had to reboot then it happened

Thanks for the reply, I really appreciate it, but unfortunately it did not work. It seems that my computer does not recognize the key f8 for a reason, but on the contrary it the f10 (boot menu), the f12 (boot pxe) and f2 (BIOS menu) arose and none of this fits your description. Fortunately my computer managed to solve the problem in itself. Once again, thank you for the reply.

    Hi Suzanna2001,

    Were present from recent changes to the system before the show, such as adding new hardware or software (including Windows Update).  You have access to a Windows CD/DVD?  Run the startup from the CD/DVD repair.  There is also an option to perform a restore of the system on the CD/DVD.  If no option is the problem, follow the steps below:

    1 1 demarrer start from the Windows 7 DVD, select your language and keyboard options, select repair your computer, and then select command line.

    2. from the command prompt, run the following command:
    DISM image:c:------/ Get-Packages

    This will produce a list of updates installed and packets.  They will look like this:

    The package identity: Package_for_KB978262 ~ 31bf3856ad364e35 ~ x 86 ~ ~ 6.1.1.0
    Status: installed
    Output type: security update
    Install time: 02-11-2010 13:01

    3. find the most recent and then make a note of the identity of the package.

    4 run:

    DISM image:c:------/ Remove-Package /PackageName:Package_for_KB978262~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~6.1.1.0 (name of the update from the previous step)

    Until it is complete, you will get a status of the collection.

    5. restart your PC.

    Have you changed the boot order:

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

  • The following error during the installation of Windows: "cannot start Windows. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

    Help, please! Installing Windows Interrupted!

    Hi recently my computer was giving me a bit of concern for example (running slow, do not easily light etc...). A couple of days, my computer has decided not to put on after a glance on the net (on my other computer), I found I had a problem call KSoD or black screen of death, therefore I went on youtube and made all the different things said youtubers can fix this how ever none of these things worked, so finally I decided that I would have factory reset my computer/windows to using the system restore. However, at half way through the installation of windows after the factory reset (my computer came with no disk Windows), my computer has decided to remove what I believe to be called a blue screen of death, that this happened before and I thought it was part of the installation but when I turned my computer on he showed at the bios screen , but then it said 'unable to start Windows. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To solve the problem: 1. Insert your windows installation disc and restart your computer. 2. choose your language settings, and then click Next. "3 click on repair your computer ' all this is very well apart from the fact that I do not have the windows installation disc. I'm stuck at this screeni however have a disc of windows 7 and that he was going to install windows7 after I got my vista Setup! but the only I see is the bio screen so I was wondering if there was some way I could install windows 7 from the bios or simply delete the entire half installed this error files windows vista from the bios screen? Please, any help is greatly appreciated. Or get a new internal HDD would fix the problem aswell?

When I went to turn it on I got the black screen that says: cannot start Windows and a recent hardware or software change might have caused this, and it gives all the boot options. ... safe mode safe mode with network etc. I tried to start windows with all the options. It goes to the windows start page and then click on return to the failure to open the page. What should I do?

    Hello littlal

    If Windows does not start even in Safe Mode you will need an XP installation CD for this problem.  Borrow one if necessary to run this fix

    Then

    Configure your PC to boot from the CD if it is not already configured in this way. You may need to enter the BIOS to configure the PC to boot from the CD.

    Set the boot order of

    floppy (if present)

    CD/DVD-ROM

    Hard drive

    RECORDING and EXIT

    Start your PC with the XP installation CD in the drive. When you see the prompt «Press any key to boot from CD...» ", do and start the process to boot on CD.

    When the Recovery Console option is available (press R to start the Recovery Console), do it. You may be asked to what Windows installation to enter, what kind of cases the number of the Windows installation you want to work (usually 1).

    When you are prompted, enter the password for the Windows installation. If you have not set up a password just press ENTER

    At the command prompt, type

    Bootcfg /Rebuild

    Come in

    The exact wording depends on your configuration, but after a few moments, you will see a prompt that displays something like:

    Total identified Windows installs: 1
    [1] C:\Windows
    Add Installation to begin the list?

    Assuming that the information see you is correct, enter

    THERE

    Bootcfg will start the process of reconstruction of the startup list to include the specified Windows installation

    After a while, you will be asked to "Enter load identifier".

    Is the name of the operating system that will appear in the start menus.

    Type

    Microsoft Windows XP Professional

    or

    Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition

    Come in

    Then you will be asked to "Enter OS Load Options."

    For normal installations, enter

    / Fastdetect

    Come in

    Type

    Output

    to exit the Recovery Console and restart the PC

  • Error when you try to install Windows XP Service Pack 3: "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

    Windows XP SP3 problem

    Recently, I met a problem with my PC and was forced to use the system recovery. Now I'm back to factory settings and try to install Windows XP Service Pack 3 on my computer. Windows Update won't work for me, that whenever I try to update I get [error number: 0x8024400A]. I think it's because I use Service Pack 2, or that's what I concluded after researching the problem, anyway.

    This is not my real concern, however. Because I could not get the update automatically, I tried to download and install the "Windows XP Service Pack 3 Network Installation Package for IT professionals and developers" myself. The first time I did it, I restarted the PC after the installation and was met with "We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this. "  I went into safe mode and went to a just system restore point before SP3 was installed, but now I don't know how to install it correctly without encountering this problem after reboot. I'm hardly the easy just stick with SP2 when there are potentially important available updates. How can I get Windows Service Pack 3 is installed on my PC?

    It's certainly interesting!

    If the cause of your problem is to have a HP PC with an AMD processor and an original image on your hard drive (and of course it sounds like this is the case), the solution should be to rename the file intelppm.sys and launch the sp37394.exe patch. Once done, the SP3 file that you downloaded from here:
    SHOULD work!
    I'm puzzled why there is no intelppm.sys file in your directory C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers.
    Since you recently returned to square one with your PC ("return to factory settings"), then you may as well run the patch from this page:
    and try the SP3 Setup file again.
    But, first, let's be absolutely sure that we are both using the same terminology. Please answer the following questions:
    1. have you safely backed up ALL your data?
    2. what method did you use to ride "back to factory settings? I think that your choices have been a destructive restore (full) and a (partial) non-destructive recovery. The first erases the disk and leave you with a pristine image and NOTHING ELSE (which means that all of your programs and data get deleted). The other (which does not always correctly) is supposed to leave programs and data intact.
