I have worked on this issue for three days now and I have not found the answer not yet. What I've done so far is sfc /scannow , disk check for errors , cut down all the start ups programs and services, check for viruses, clean boot, safe mode boot, check the boot order in the bios and many more things. The laptop is a Toshiba windows 7 64 bit home premium satellite l555-s7005 many help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks for your attention to this matter.
