Dell Inspiron M5030 - Windows 7 will not start up after resetting to factory settings

This question is not answered

Hi All,

I had to restore my computer (Dell Inspiron M5030) to factory settings. After doing so and restarting the computer, the computer fails to start windows 7. It gets past the Dell screen and to the starting windows screen, except it can't start up. I ran start up repair and it found no problems. I cannot reset windows to an earier image as there is none. I tried to reset to factory settings again to see if that would fix the problem, but that did not work either.  Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

Thanks so much for any help anyone can provide!

  • Hello there! I'm just now having the same problem and wondered if/how you ever got yours resolved. =( I just had to reset mine because of a virus or something of the sort and can't get it to boot back up. It freezes mid-starting screen.
