First, I am not sure if I am in the right place but I have been told my problem MAY be a Software problem. I have used this forum in the past for problems and have always gotten great help. I have an Inspiration 530 with Windows Vista.
After downloading and installing a WINDOWS UPDATE the computer would not come back up. It brought up a system repair screen. That failed. Then I did a system restore which also failed. I picked a different date and it failed about 3 more times before finally coming back up and all seems well until I shut down and get the error again. Here is what I see:
Then I see this next:
Please advise! I will now be away from internet use until later this afternoon.
Try running a "startup repair" and see if that helps.

If I turn my computer off it will bring up Start Up Repair. Every attempt to restore fails with the exception of one and when Windows finally opens it too says it "failed" but Windows is open. To keep from having to do this I just keep the computer turned on all the time.
I think I solved my own problem. I went back and checked to see the last install which was Windows Update KB2585542. I removed this install and then re-downloaded it, installed it again and have had no problems. Don't know why it didn't work the first time but it seems to be working now.
