I cant get into Windows

By cyrileboka ·
I recently did an upgrade of my computer. On restarting, I get a message asking that I validate my copy of Windows and giving a YES and NO option. I click yes to validate and then nothing happens. I am unable to go into Windows to do anything at all, not even to validate. What should I do next. Apparently something went wrong during the UPGRADE setup.

And if you click on No

by OH Smeg In reply to I cant get into Windows

Can you open Windows now? Quite often depending on how your computer access the Internet you need Windows Running for the Internet Connection to be usable.

If you can not get into the system by clicking the No Option your only alternative is to reload Do a New Clean Install

Have you tried to enter safe mode ?

by abacrotto In reply to I cant get into Windows

Maybe you can enter the safe mode when your computer boots up. Pressing the F8 key, you will be prompted with a text menu (I think, if you have Windows XP). One of the options you'll see is safe mode. If you can enter safe mode, try uninstalling the upgrade you have done. In case you upgrade to Windows Seven or Vista, I think you wiil have to follow OH Smeg's answer and do a new clean install.

Fixing Your OS problem

by RamonG617 In reply to I cant get into Windows

You can also restart the computer. Enter safe mode. Then try to start the computer from a restore point. So like that the update you made can go away. In order to do this you need to have already done a backup before you installed the update. So like that the computer can have the most recent information it had when before you installed the update.
