    Hello all :)

    Today I turned on my PC as normal (it shut down fine last night, no new installations of anything or any new hardware etc) and windows startup repair popped up saying my computer cannot start. So I let it finish and it said "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" so I restarted my PC to see if it still didn't start but it started as normal and i'm on it now no problems...so I am wondering why it did that and if there is some problem with my PC?

    Oh and a few month ago windows boot manager came up when I turned on my PC aswell so I just selected windows 7 and it was fine just like normal and has never showed up since.

    Would really appreciate any info on why this happened as my PC seems to be fine now but this worries me as the PC is less than 6 months old and I built it myself.

    System specs:
    OS: Windows 7 home premium
    RAM: 8gb corsair vengeance
    Hard drive: 1TB Western Digital (Black)
    GPU: MSI Gtx 580 twin frozr II OC
    CPU: intel core i5 2500k @ 3.30ghz
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z68XP-UD3P

    I got many Windows Updates yesterday. Could it be related to that?

    Might be an indication of either a faulty or failing system drive or corruption of system files.
    Backup you critical data.
    Use the native disk check utility to check your system disk
    Use the native System File Checker to check your OS files.
    Keep us posted.
    Regards

    Hey Randy, thanks for the reply. Is a faulty or failing system drive or corruption of system files the only possible problem? My hard drive is less than 5 months old so if it's failing already that would be ridiculous (not saying that's not the problem though).

    I will be trying what you suggested shortly and i'll let you know what the results are.
