My computer will not boot up Windows 7?

When I try to start my laptop I get a couple of errors and a black screen. One of the errors is Wefault.exe Bad image, the other is Login process Initialization Failure. Finally there is a dwm.exe- Bad Image error. When I click OK on the errors, It a black screen w/ cursor shows for a few minutes, then a blue screen flashes and it restarts.

If the steps in the main guide don't work to fix your problem, you'll need to go and create a USB recovery disk to get yourself sorted.

You can find a guide explaining how to go about doing this here: Make a bootable Windows 7 USB flash drive installer.

How do I fix my laptop booting up with zero functionality?

My laptop keeps booting up but only shows a vanilla type Windows desktop background with no functionality at all apart from the mouse cursor. I can't even access task manager or do anything. I am able to use the HP quickweb option however which is what I am using right now.

I'm wondering if that's what my mom's laptop has?

She said the screen said there was a problem with a file, so she shutdown the laptop. I started it up next day, but it took about six or eight minutes and still no screen. Then the blue Windows screen with 'welcome' came on, but it went off soon after and all there is, is a black screen. I did Ctrl/Alt/Del and after about 5 minutes the task manager came up. I looked at list of running things but don't know what is normal, all looked OK to me. I couldn't get task manager to respond so I shut down the laptop (had to force) and now I'm looking for information. I have tried: I guess I answered this in the first box, the problem description box.. I think it was caused by: Maybe a Windows update? I know my mom doesn't change settings or download things or look at emails from anybody she doesn't know.

Thank you for asking, I do not personally have a laptop but my sister does, and she is less computer wise than I am and asks me why her laptop won't boot up? so I am investigating laptop problems?

Although, I have the barest details from her so far (we live 500 miles apart), she tells me by phone there seems to be power coming in her screen, won't go to Desktop mode.. I have tried: Well, so far I have been reading a lot about static removal, checking graphics card function, switching RAM sticks etc,. I think it was caused by: No idea

Laptop is going to sleep mode or restart, it's not showing the display?

Dear Sir, Windows asked for updates, after updating Windows 7 32 bit Ultimate, my laptop is going to sleep mode or restart, it's not showing the display (Laptop screen is not working). I reinstalled the OS, but unable to solve it. " To turn on Screen display I removed the Battery & wait for 1 hrs, after I can see the display, but again if I restart or laptop is going to sleep mode again the same problem I am facing. I hope there is any solution from your end. Thank You. Early I already explained. I have tried: Reinstalled same OS & removed battery & wait for 1 Hrs. I think it was caused by: BIOS or Laptop Screen (Hardware Issue) because it's old system (Dell Latitude D620).
