Stuck in Startup Repair Mode - no advanced start up options


New Member
My computer is stuck in Start up Repair Mode, I have spent days trying to figure something out. Is the only thing i can do let it restart and restart and eventually it will fix itself? I have tried all F2 booting options and theres really nothing in F12 i can use. But the problem is, when i go to hit F8 or shift F11, the computer just beeps at me and nothing happens. i have tried without the battery and holding the power button for 30 sec. Is there any other options or is this the end?
