Hello cyball83, i have tried the first fix selective startup,did not work,now i have started cmd and it tells me i have to be an administrator running a console session in order to use the sfc utility.What do i do now.Also 383 problem starts as soon as i turn on p.c.
Please try the following
click start>>>control panel>>>user accounts.In user accounts window you can see your user account you are now logged in.now click on change your account type.Change the your account type to administrator.
Then try to run that sfc /scannow.if it fails again
Restart the computer then press F8 repeatedly. You need to press F8 before the Windows logo appears then you will get Advance boot Menu on the Advanced Boot Options screen, use the arrow keys to highlight the Safe Mode and then press ENTER.once you are in safe mode.open command prompt(cmd) and run the sfc /scannow
I have tried what you said but i only have a 8 key no f8 ,and kept trying to press before screen opened ,did not work also in user acc i already am administrator.
I will have to leave this chat now but will keep trying what you asked me to do, by the way this is a HP DV6 laptop if that helps.
F8 key is standard in all keyboard.it is located on the Top middle of the keyboard like this
please try again.please specify the full model of the laptop.which you can find on the bottom of the laptop on sticker.For example dv6414.if the above mentioned step didn't work we need to do a restore the system to factory settings.which will erase the data on the hard drive.so please back up the data to external drive.let me know
Hello cyball found f8 very small writing.Thankyou very very much problem 383 solved.Very close to your directions.Took time to work out but everything working normal.Once again thankyou for all your help.
