Any help here would be greatly appreciated. When I started my hp ze1115 laptop yesterday, it seemed to be starting normally and then stopped. It posted a screen as follows:
We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.
If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down...and so on giving me options to start in safe mode etc, at a previous setting, and normally. It would then automatically recycle with the same result. I tried all the options it listed without any change in result. I noticed a blue screen with writing and finally got it to stop. I'm not sure why the screen was stationary but I had opened the CD drive. The screen said the following:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut
down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps.
Check to make sure any hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturere for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Safe mode.

I haven't added any hardware lately, and have only installed a system mechanic software lately and that was several weeks ago. I use it only to check email, and surf the internet, read online news. It isn't overtaxed in other words, no memory zapping games etc. Any help is greatly appreciated. I will need detailed instructions. Thanks again.
