RogueHart Posted December 15, 2010 Share Posted December 15, 2010 yay for more vista issues >.> Anyway a proper startup on my laptop into the windows partition is it loads up the initial splash screen, then the screen goes black where there is no power to the screen, then the screen gets power but remains black, and it brings up the loading screen and then login. 9 of 10 startups recently it has gotten to the point where theres no power (assuming no power due to no backlight) to the screen and stays there. to see if it was just a slow boot i left it for 45 min and it was still at that. so i have to do a hard shutdown and restart from the beginning. at first it would work the second time. then the 3rd or 4th. but last night i rebooted 12 times and it would not work. i booted into linux to do some web surfing but there were files and thing i needed in windows and linux couldnt even mount the partition. i tried to force it to mount and it disappeared from the places list and the command to mount wouldnt even give an error. this morning 3 more reboots got windows working and now i need to find out why and fix the problem. ive done about 10 minutes of googling so far (and im going to continue) but in the years ive been here ive found the people on this forum more knowledgeable than any i find from google. any help is appreciated. i can still use linux for work for the most part but i still need my windows partition.
