    right so ive got an acer aspire one netbook with windows 7 starter and ive had a problem with the operating system so because i havent got a restore point i tried using the factory restore settings. it went very smoothly untill the end where it gets Stuck on "Stepup is Starting Services" with a white bar loading constantly. i left it over night but when i checked in the morning it was the same.

    anyone got ideas what i can do to fix this?

    Have you tried to re install windows 7 for this to occur? you say it is stuck on the setup is starting services and you see a white bar as if it is loading at the bottom of the screen....

    Can you go into safemode and select last known good configuration?

    Although to me it seems the actual installation files have been corrupted, you may need to perform a repair install.

    Either by using an Install or repair DVD or a USB with Windows 7 on it...

    If you have recovery discs that came with your computer then I suggest you use them.

    EDIT

    Make sure nothing is plugged in the computer then press and hold down the zero key, release the key as soon as the recovery windows opens, then you will be prompted with a few options the one you want to pick is 'box state' may take some time too.

    If that was me i would grab a windows installation disk, pick (R) for repair and you will enter the "recovery console"

    format c:

    This will slow format the hard drive to remove any bad sectors on the drive.

    Don't format the recovery partition!

    Then try it again :happy:
