Use Last Known Good Configuration
8

If you are unable successfully boot into Windows because of the fatal error, Windows has an option to reload registry information from the last successful boot. To revert to the last successful boot:

  1. Reboot the computer.
  2. Near the end of the BIOS messages or graphic, but well before anything appears from Windows, press the F8 key. You may only have a few seconds to get the right spot to press F8 before it attempts to go into Windows. If the BIOS complains about a pressed key or asks you to go into BIOS setup, you've pressed F8 too soon (Don't go into BIOS setup).
  3. When successful, you should see a black screen with white text "Windows Advanced Options". Use the up or down arrow keys to highlight Last Known Good Configuration and press Enter.

If the system had been working fine, but the problem started to occur right after some change such as installation of new application, driver or hardware, try reverting the system to the prior state to see if the problem goes away. 

For removal of an application
Windows 8:

  1. Press the Windows key and X at the same time. Select Control Panel, then Programs and Features.
  2. Select the software to uninstall and select Uninstall.  Note that the "Uninstall" option does not appear until you click on a program.

Windows 7:

  1. Click on Start, Control Panel, then under Programs, select Uninstall a program.
  2. Select the software to uninstall and select Uninstall.  Note that the "Uninstall" option does not appear until you click on a program.

Windows Vista:

  1. Click on Start, Control Panel, then Programs and Features.
  2. Select the software to uninstall and select Uninstall.

Windows XP:

  1. Click on Start, Control Panel, then Add or Remove Programs.
  2. Select the software to uninstall and select Remove.

 

To disable a driver:

  1. Bring up the system information dialog:

    Windows 8:
    Press the Windows key and X at the same time. Select System.

    Windows 7/Vista/XP:
    On the keyboard, press the Windows key + Pause/Break.

    • or

    Select Start, right click Computer and on the drop-down, select Properties.

     

  2. Click on the left side option Advanced system settings (Windows 8/7/Vista only).
  3. In System Properties, select the Hardware tab, then click on Device Manager button.
  4. Find the hardware/driver of interest (you may need to expand a choice at the "plus" graphic) and double click the choice.
  5. Select the Driver tab. Here you can perform a number of actions such as update the driver, roll Back the driver to an older version, disable or uninstall the driver.
  6. Click OK to exit, then close the Device Manager and other previously opened dialogs.

Install the latest Windows software updates. Don't forget to check for non-critical updates too!

To manually get updates, open Internet Explorer (you can't use a non-Microsoft browser for updates).

For IE 8 and later: Click on Safety, then Windows Update. Follow the instructions.


 

For IE 7 and older: Click on Tools, then Windows Update. Follow the instructions.
