Hello,
My Compaq Laptop will not go to my Desktop (Home Screen). Here is exactly what it does, i turn on the power button & it goes to this screen ***We apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this etc.*** It ask me if... I want to start windows in safe mode normally (or with Networking or Command Prompt), Last Known Good Configuration (Your most recent settings that worked) or start windows normally. I have tried every one of them but every time I do it checks my D: drive with this CHKDSK & then takes me to this BLUE screen that says....

***STOP: c0000218 {Registy file failure}
The registry cannot load the hive (file):
\SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE
or its log or alternate.
It is corrupt, absent, or not writable

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance***

PLEASE HELP THIS LAPTOP IS MY MOM'S & SHE ONLY LET ME BOROW IT. WHAT SHOULD I DO TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM! PLEASE GIVE ME ANSWER'S QUICKLY PLEASE!!!!!!!

All you have to do now is trying to do a system restore,

Access safe mode and then you will be asked if you want to recover your computer from an earlier time,
Choose a date when your pc was working fine, click next, let the process to be done then restart your machine normally!

You won't lose data such as files and emails!
