My internet stopped working tonight, so I restarted it. When it restart it went directly to Startup Repair, it wasn't able to automatically fix anything. I've tried restarting it and even removed the hardrive and it does the same thing. I can't get past the startup repair screen. It is more or less shutdown and restart, contact the administrator or your computer provider. The "root cause" seems to be the following:

Boot critical file C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\uolbyzn.sys is corrupt

Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I am running on Vista Home Basic

A:Need Help:Boot Critical File C

Hello,

This is very strange. Normally from this position we would insert the Windows CD, boot to the Recovery Console and we would send you a list of commands to copy back the file from your Vista DVD. However, I do not have this file on my working Vista Home Premium, and searching Google comes up with not a single hit. It is a bit strange for a virus, but I suppose it could be. It is not any normal System file, or any normal file of any program. It is not even showing up in manual virus removal websites. Also, have you tried Safe Mode and Last Known Good Configuration?

A computer of a family member of mine has recently started showing the following message :
_____________________________________

Boot critical file is corrupt.
Repair action. File Repair

Result failed. Error code = 0x2
_____________________________________

I can still use windows fine, however this is a big nuisance, and i can think of no explanation of why this is happening. I have installed no new apps or hardware of any sort in the recent months either.

It is running Windows Vista Premium [ No service pack ]

I was wondering if anyone has had this problem, or if anyone knows how to fix this problem ?

Thank you in advance

Hello, I was downloading what appeared to be an update for Java but about halfway through the download my computer shut down and restarted.

On restart, the computer stated that Windows 7 could not load and started to do a startup repair, which did not succeed.

I opened Startup Repair and Diagnostics and the report log stated:

Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupt.

I have tried system restore at several points and run sfc /scannow, which told me to reboot my computer, but I kept going round in a loop from there.

I suspect I have the exact same problem as referenced by Jan Soall and solved by m0le and farbar (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic396014.html). My computer is also a Toshiba and does not come with a disk to re-install Windows. I've picked up right where farbar started assisting on the thread and have downloaded and run frst64.exe. The resulting log is below.

Thank you SO MUCH for helping me with this.

Hi,

PC spec - Windows 7 Pro (32-bit) Intel Core 2 Duo, 4GB Ram, 2x 250GB HDD

I think I have succesfully removed a Root Kit virus using Kaspersky TDSS Killler but would just like to make sure no other malware etc remains. I'll explain from the beginning.

1. PC was running fine then Windows start-up repair appeared. In the diagnostic & repair details it spotted an error - Boot Critical File E:\CI.dll is corrupt

2. could not repair, restarted, PC would'nt boot up

2. I searched online and found a thread recommending to use Kaspersky TDSS Killer.

3. the thread advised to boot-up with signature verification disabled (F10) - This worked but before I could use the TDSSKiller, the PC crashed. There was also several Trojans and worms being detected, eg: W32/Blaster.worm by what looked like windows defender, but not sure - having searched google about these, it may be a fake Anti Virus software running. I read W32/Blaster.worm does not affect windows 7? and nothing is being found on scans.

The signature verification option did'nt work after that PC crashed

4 Instead I created a windows recovery CD using a different PC - this allowed me to start the PC into Command Prompt MS DOS.

5 I ran the TDSS Killer Software directly from the a CD - after scan finished it said something about MBR, and use standard boot option, (sorry can't remember exact line) I clicked on yes to use standard.

6 PC restarted again as normal and everything seems to be running fine.

There have been a few of these lately.

Suggest you try running sfc SFC /SCANNOW : Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Try a malware scan from a bootable a/v Avira AntiVir Rescue System - Download

If necessary replace ci.dll from another source e.g installation dvd.

In a stupid moment I ran an exe which probaly contained malware... I saw MSE popping-up a warning that it detected 2 virus infections but before I had the chance to click "Remove it" the PC rebooted. It got into an endless loop of failing to repair startup issues. Within the log file, there was a bit of helpful information, ?Boot Critical File d:\ci.dll Corrupted?. Searching Google I found it is probably a rootkit or something like that.

From the recovery console i tried following things:
I tried restoring to the previous system restore point.
I tried restoring the ci.dll with sfc /scanfile=d:\ci.dll but that fails with the message: "There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete..."
Then I tried restoring the master boot record using bootsect /nt60 d: but that failes with the message "... The update may be unreliable since volume could not be locked during the update: Access is denied".
I also tried running FRST64.Exe but that crashes during the scan: "Line 3294 (File F:/FRST64.exe) Error: Error in expression"

Anybody who can help resolve this or is the only way out a clean install and does that guarantee that the rootkit is removed?

The problems started yesterday when my computer went to blue screen and automatically shut down and restarted. This happened twice, then I did an AVG scan in Safe Mode. It placed several infections and a few malwares into the virus vault. However, it "did not test" dozens of files because they were "locked". There were Boot directeries that were listed among the locked files.

I restarted in Normal Mode, and got a message that Windows found a malicious file and "partially removed" it. When I clicked on the message to find details about the file, this webpage popped up: Encyclopedia entry: TrojanOS/Alureon.A - Learn more about malware - Microsoft Malware Protection Center
So the infection was TrojanOS/Alureon.A (edited to add: the smiley face appears where : D [without the space] is in the trojan filename)

About an hour later, the computer crashed and restarted again, then again a few minutes later. I did another scan and no malicious files were found.

When I turned the computer on 20 minutes ago, I got a screen telling me that the computer was unable to start, and Windows was searching for solutions. It apparently worked because I'm using the computer now. However, when I clicked to see the details of what happened, I saw this: "Boot critical file c:\windows\system32\kdcom.dll is corrupt".

So I don't know if it fixed the file or if it's still corrupt. I'm concerned my computer will have trouble rebooting. Thanks for any help in... Read more

A:[SOLVED] Boot critical file c:/ci.dll is corrupt

This error has been known to be caused by Windows Updates. Every reference I've read on that issue required a re-install of Windows 7 since nothing else worked.

Provided you've taken the sensible precaution of backing up your files before that happened, re-installing will not involve losing anything. Better still, if you've created a "System Image" which Windows 7 allows you to do (& which everyone should do as soon as possible after installation), restoring Windows will be even easier.

Hiya,

The missus has a mini notebook (ee) that has Windows 7 starter on it. Whilst using it last night, there were some updates from Microsoft available, and I set the updates in motion.

One of them was to install Explorer 9, and I declined that, as this is the wifes computer and she uses it for work, didn't want to stuff anything up.

Delayed doing the restart for a while as i was still doing some minoer work on a Word doc.

When it went to restart, it went into a screen trying to auto fix and issue. After much time and multiple attempts, it could not do it, and any restart went into the same mode.

In the end, it could not fix the issue.

From the error report, the following message comes up ;

Boot critical file
c:\windows\system\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe is corrupt
Error code 0xa

As this is a mini notebook, it doesn't have any floppy disc etc, and I can't even get it to start in safe mode to try and fix.

Help !!!

Thanks

Michael

That is the Windows NT Kernel.

Try and boot using the HDD recovery partition - try system repair from there.

While the timing with the Windows Updates may make hardware failure seem unlikely - it is a possibility.

0xa = driver referenced invalid or bad memory. It could be either software or hardware (specifically RAM) related.

Hi,

I'm an intern with an NGO organization where one of the desktop computers started having problems about a week ago. The computer is a Dell running Windows 7. Every morning, the first person to turn it on sees a whole bunch of updates being installed. The boot screen is irregular, it doesn't include the F2 or F12 options for changing the setup, and it never goes to the log screen. Instead, it goes to a "Startup Repair" window, runs a "scan" that can't be canceled, and then reports that Windows was unable to fix the problem and offers an option to restart. If I click to see the full diagnostic, everything checks out except the last item, which says that "critical boot file ci.dll is corrupt." If I go to "Advanced Diagnostic Tools," it doesn't allow to me do a system restore or much of anything else besides open the command prompt, and I can do only limited diagnostic tasks from there. If I restart, though, it restarts and functions perfectly normally. I installed Avast on there when I started working with it and the full virus scan finds no problems. The computer functions normally for the rest of the day; however, when I go to shut it down after 5 oclock, it says that it's installing 67 updates, every single day.

I can't figure out whether this is some bizarre virus that just makes it take a little longer to use the computer every morning, or a much more malicious virus whose effects simply haven't mani... Read more

the critical startup file C:\windows\system32\drivers\axeth.sys is damaged.

what can I do?
thank you in advance for your help.

Answer Match 45.78%

Quick background: I've been an IT admin for a major university for the past 12 years managing 300+ Windows and Mac user machines. So, this likely isn't your average network connectivity/name resolution/permissions/firewall issue.

I have an important user's Windows 7 Enterprise (32 bit) machine that cannot connect to any windows file shares (Known good ones on multiple servers). At this point I would have normally just wiped the Windows install out and reinstalled but the user apparently has had this issue for many months (Possibly since May) and hadn't noticed. This resulted in his home directory being stuck in an offline state and all of his modifications are "stuck" on this laptop.

To further complicate things, before I knew the extent of the problem, I removed it from our domain and whatever issue is plaguing this windows install also is preventing me from being able to re-add it to the domain. Therefore I cannot login as the user with the cached offline files at the moment.

Here's what works:
-DNS name resolution
-NetBIOS/WINS name resolution
-Pinging the machines with the shared volumes
-Web access

Here's what doesn't work:
-Accessing any file shares. After about 30 seconds the error says "Windows cannot access \\servername\share"
-Accessing local file shares (i.e. \\127.0.0.1\c$ ...\temp, etc.). I get the same error here.
-The network troubleshooter doesn't find any problems.

The above behavior is the same whether conne... Read more

A:Critical file sharing issue

Well, couldn't get the file share access thing worked out but I did some experimenting on another Win7 machine and figured out how to get another user's offline files back (Assuming you have admin rights).

Here's what I did:
-Disable offline files
-Navigate to c:\windows\csc
-Take ownership of the directory and all sub directories
-Assign your account full control permissions
-Copy the files you want out of there

This sounds relatively simple but I was very paranoid about messing up the files in the process. Windows XP used to keep offline files in some sort of convaluted/compressed format that was not really usable on its own. Apparently they changed this is Win 7 and that's a good thing.

You've removed your Linux, but the bootloader remains.

The easiest way is to insert your windows disk, and then either repair the installation, or enter the command line and from the prompt repair the MBR by doing the following:

fixmbr

reboot and you should be good then.

Didn't change on reclose and open, nor on shutdown and restart. All research and attempts to access hard drive don't work. Can get into BIOS, changing boot has no effect. Attempted Legacy Boot, started repair, stopped around 30% said it couldn't. All options tried in F8 system reboot, restore, recover end in error messages that say it can't be done. Took out and returned battery out and hard drive, no changes. Tried USB boot from Ubuntu and can't find any drive. Only thing that provides any info: when attempting to do recover, only recovery point option is before Windows Critical Update on 10/16/16. Error message results. The time stamp of the update is close to when I last successfully used my laptop and closed the lid. Still flashing orange/black. Images of all the above too large to attach apparently. Help much appreciated.

A:G80 after MS Critical Update won't boot, restore, ...

I would get yourself a 16GB USB stick (MS says 8GB is enough, but I would get a 16GB), find another system that is running a Windows 10 (64-bit) version (it does not matter if it is home or Pro etc., just that it also is 64-bt) and use that system to create a Windows 10 recovery drive.  You can then boot to the USB stick and use it to repair your system, or hopefully repair you system that is. It sounds like your HD is still working or it would not have been able to see the System Restore point, so if you boot into recovery, you can do a few things to check the health of your hard drive, such as run chkdsk. etc.    This page has some good information on how to repair your system using the advanced options available while in Windows Recovery that are not available, or work as well when loading recovery off of the HD in question. Repair your computer in Windows 10https://www.winhelp.us/repair-your-computer-in-windows-10.html Good Luck,

My machine (an H-P Notebook Pavilion running Vista Home Premium 64 SP2 with 4 gigs of onboard RAM plus 4gigs of ReadyBoost and 4gigs of PageFile) is generally running fine but I do install a lot of sofware apps to check them out and often uninstall them if I discover they are useless to me. I used to be an engineer before I became terminnally-ill so I really like utilities. Also, I tweak it frequently closely following the instructions from you really bright guys on the respected forums.
Anyway, I periodically check the event viewer logs notwithstanding that health check finds my machine to be generally healthy. I haven't experienced any boot problems other than on rare occasion it will be nearly loaded and automatically return itself to the boot screen with the H-P logo and boot up fine then.
This evening I noticed several critical events under Diagnostics-Performance Operational. I'm pasting a copy of these into this missive because I am wondering if this is anything serious.
Naturally, I don't have an original installation disk for the machine thank you H-P but I do have a set of disks that H-P provided me one time when they couldn't get my machine to burn disks from the Recovery partition that came in the first machine I purchased prior to them having to replace it when it crashed during a BIOS upgrade. I also have a raw version of my operating system I purchased but can't use because it voids my warranty.

A:Boot Performance Critical Warning

Hello Metrotek,
I have the same type of thing on my system and i have never bothered with it.
It can sometimes be caused by a driver, a piece of software you downloaded, or a number of other things.
In your case, most likely a piece of software.

If you like to try different apps, then its a good idea to keep your system files in order.

Try these free apps.

CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download (Backup Registry When Prompted).

Malwarebytes

Auslogics BoostSpeed - Free software downloads and software reviews - CNET Download.com

Also, open a command prompt as administrator and type sfc/scannow press enter and let it scan, if errors are found you will need to run it again, until clean.
Follow this tutorial. This will check and repair damaged system files.

System Files - SFC Command

Open "System Configuration" and check to see what programs are being loaded at startup.
To open the config utility type msconfig in the search option in the start menu and press enter.

Hope this helps, good luck and post your results.

Using Windows 7 64 bit. My computer isn't new, but I've changed RAM to Exceleram several months ago. It was working just fine for the next 2-3 months. A 1.5 month ago my computer just rebooted itself after about 3 mins of work. Then for the next couple of weeks nothing bad happend. But about a week ago when I booted it frozen after about 30 sec of work (Windows loaded normally). I've hard reseted it and it sayed that there is a problem with CMOS memory and suggested to set CMOS settings to default. I've tried to load one more time without doing it and exactly the same happend. Then I've restored CMOS to defaults and problem solved. But a couple of days ago it just frozen again, I've rebooted, but there was nothing said about CMOS. I didn't chane anything and it was working fine for the next 2-3 days. Then today the BSOD appeared after 25 min of work. There were no BSOD's in the previous cases. I'm just uploading a dump file to look at it, but probably won't understand anything. I doubt that someone can help me on that, cause I've already searched through the internet and found pretty much nothing. Except for the other people it mostly happens every day on the first boot, while mine can work fine for several days without this problems. It's too random.
EDIT: ah, sorry, a link that I found said that you can view a dump files on this forum, or I have misunderstand it. Already found a program for that. Says that it was caused by adress ntoskrnl.exe.

About a year ago I installed a cyber sitter called "iProtectyou" on my son's computer. I decided to uninstall it for him recently because it didn't work, and it only seemed to give him a hassle when he tried to use the internet or play games. When I tried to reinstall it, it would not take the password I used (I could of forgotten it, but I had it written down).

After hours of trying to uninstall it, I went to the internet and Googled how to get rid of cyber sitter's with a forgotten password. Luckily there were several people with the same problem. I downloaded the applications they gave out on the site, and eventually got rid of it. They also had me go to the "Registry Editor" (run: regedit) and screw around in there. The program still shows up in "Programs and Features" but theirs no publisher now, and I still cannot install it. Except now, instead of asking for a password, it just says that their was an error with database.

Now when ever we open up anything, we are swarmed with windows telling us "Crictical Error Occured While Opening Database."

A:Boot Manager Has Recovered From a Critical Error??

Hi

In a UEFI boot configuration (default for Win 8/8.1 x64 ), Windows boot loader and it's configuration will be stored inside a small hidden partition called EFI System Partition. UEFI BIOS in modern laptops will check and make sure the boot files are not corrupted or compromised before loading Windows. If the validation check failed, entire boot configuration and the boot manager will be restored from a backup copy. I am not sure how your boot loader became corrupted. There is multiple possibilities. For example, a stealth type malware like Rootkit's may try to modify the boot configuration. Trying to install Linux distros may also result in the same. Another possibility is an unexpected or improper shutdown which resulted in file corruption.

 You can make a repair disc on another Windows 7 computer with 32 or 64 bit version matching the one you're working on.  Go to Start -> Control Panel -> Backup and restore -> Create system repair disc.  Insert a blank CD-R and it will make it.  Then take the repair disc, boot from it, and do the repair.
 I assumed Windows 7 for this since you didn't say.
 
Good luck.

Help! First of all, I am very light in computer knowledge; therefore I need as simple directions as possible. For the last month or so my computer has been freezing constantly. I have to manually shut it down. When I run a diagnostic it shows only that I have too many start up programs, I have hundreds of errors in the event log but a few are critical 100 Boot. I do not know which start up programs are safe to remove. I do not know how to put a screen shot here. My confusion is that the problem is not starting the computer is that it just does not work, when I go to a link it just freezes and even if I do not go to any link, just scrolling. I hope someone can help me before I lose everything. I have a laptop HP and windows 7. Thank you, Ana

A:Constant Freezing/Critical Errors 100 Boot

To post a screen shot; go to the page, etc. you want to take a screenshot of; press control(ctrl) + print screen. Then, go into paint;(start, programs, accessories, then paint). and once paint is opened; click edit(I believe) at the top and go down to paste; then click paste and that should put the image you want to upload on the screen. Then click file, and then save, and write down where you save the file and for the file name put something you can easily remember. Then, click edit on your post and click the paper clip icon; go to where you saved the file, click on the file name, and then click upload. Post the screenshot and then we can go from there. Hope this helps.

A:acer one inspire won't boot after critical update

You can try this guide.

I'd first try last known good configuration and then system restore if that doesn't work.

I did a reformat a week or so ago and tweaked my startups so I could get as few as possible and still make it run right. I even took some of the needless services according to Black Viper's Windows 7 Configurations. The time for the boot is still lingering around 2 minutes, with the shortest being 86 seconds. Not only that but every boot performance in event viewer #100 is Critical when it used to mostly be Warnings with the odd critical thrown in. As we talk I had uninstalled ESET Nod 32 AV6.0 to see if that was the reason it was doing Critical and it pretty well stayed the same. I am totally at a loss as to how I can fix this without going SSD or stripping more out of the startup.

In this order,

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
You may need to run it 2-3 times to "fix" everything.

Run RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Let it run until at least 9 passes are completed, or errors are found (whichever comes first). The longer you run it, the better.

Hello, im in desperate need of help here! So far everything ive tried has not worked.

Malwarebytes deleted a critical component....
A little over a week ago, I was trying to rid my desktop of Personal Guard 2009. The guys over on the Malware forum at techguys.org were helping me there. The last 2 scans that I needed to do to ensure I was clean was to do a Malwarebyte scan and an OTS scan. Malwarebytes went through its scan, came up with 3 files that it wanted to delete and then reboot. So it did...everything but reboot. On reboot the computer went to the Dell screen then a blue screen which read something like, "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. .......Technical information: ***Stop: 0x0000007B (0xF9679528,0xC0000034,0x00000000, 0x00000000)"

The next day, we found out that Malwarebytes was giving a false positive and deleting atapi.sys from my system. I contacted the tech guy there at Malwarebytes and his fix was to use my OME reinstallation cd to do a repair install on Windows XP. So, I inserted the cd and followed directions. 30 hours later, the screen still showed 32 minutes left to complete setup. I turned the computer off and tried again. This time it went fine but I got a lot of copy errors that I had to cancel (Setup cannot copy the file migregdb.ex_. etc.) In the end, windows booted, all of my settings looked to be intact. I shut it down with the intentions of coming back this morning and connecting the desktop to the internet so I could download the service packs. However, this mo... Read more

Problem is that now it will only boot to Xp and i cannot connect to internet there. I have tried to install programs to xp with usb EasyBCD (Doesent work for some reason) and Vistabootpro (But it needs .net framework 2.0 and its not installed!)

I checked and i can see that drive C is still there with windows in it, but i cannot not boot to Vista dammit.

How can i boot to vista and then format the XP partition?

im so angry and sad cause im so in love with my pc and i have too much of precious files and documents to do a clean instal..

PS: I tried to enter the xp cd and enter the instal from bios, but i cannot view partitions cause i can only see the K: partition cause it tells me it has to be repaired.

Hello.

I'm not sure what nasty I have. In normal mode, I get three critical error messages like below with different file numbers.

---------------
Critical Error!
Windows was unable to save all the components for the file \System32\496A8300. The file is corrupted or unreadable. The error may be caused by a PC hardware problem.
-------------

I have a black screen, can run nothing, cannot access files, cannot connect to the internet.

In safe mode, I can get the files to display and can access a CD and external hard drive, but still cannot access the internet.

I used a laptop to transfer DeFogger, DDS, and GMER. I ran Defogger, obtained DDS logs, but twice GMER caused a stop screen error: RQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and dumped the memory - had to reboot.

Previously, I had run rkill, TDSS, and MBAM. Once, the TDSS log indicated it had stopped C:\WINDOWS\system32\grpcon.exe - I believe it was the third time I ran it. Otherwise I get zero files terminated. I cannot run MBAM. I get run-time error '53' mbamnet. I tried using randmbam.exe, but was still unsuccessful after 10 attempts.

I get locked up in safe mode and have to turn off the computer and restart the whole process. This morning, I missed the safe mode tap and when starting up in normal, Spybot popped up and stated it had terminated a file called win32.zbot.

I have a Windows 10 64 bit PC.

it was working fine few days ago.

i then Installed Wampserver latest edition, but before doing this it asked me to manually update ALL the Microsoft VC Redistributables.

I did all that.

i then had a program called Advanced System Care From IObit. It said it found some optimizations for my PC to speed up booting, hard drive read speed and few other things. I did all this and a registry clean using their software.

I restarted pc. Later i went to play music and found i had no sound. i had not touched the sound drivers. The Windows Audio service was still running, i even restarted it.

I then put pc to sleep. but then it wouldnt fully wake up. While waiting for it i got the first BSOD with a "Critical Process Died"

Next time i started i uninstalled audio drivers and installed original ones from manufacturers dvd. Didnt work. I then tried to update using driver software, it took ages to do then never worked. Then while browsing firefox, pc freezes and i get the same BSOD.

i then went into windows repair mode and used chkdsk /r c: to check c drive it found and fixed few errors.

Restarted and then i got the freezing and bsod again.

tried a few more things like sfc in repair mode cmd.

but then when trying to start it gives BSOD before windows even loads. it says different things unmountable boot volume.. other times something about kernel and bad config.

Hello to all

I've got a minor, but somewhat niggling little problem, that I'd like to resolve if at all possible!

I've got a Sony VGN-CR31S laptop which I've owned from new. It's about 4 years old now, and it was time to image back-up the drive and fresh install the o/s and software as it had become clogged up with crap, was running slowly etc.

Install was fine (back-up is also fine), however, there's always one piece of hardware, the Texas Instruments SD card port and controller that Win 7 can never find the correct drivers for, so this is always the one piece of hardware that sits there in Device Manager as an "unknown item" - I've had it before so wasn't surprised by this.

Probably, the one mistake I made was to run too many unnecessary Sony Vaio driver downloads from the Sony website (as I couldn't remember which driver installation cured it), and I noticed that after one of the reboots, the computer started making an unexpected "critical error" sound notification at the end of the boot-up sequence. There are no visible problems, the computer doesn't display any warnings, there are no blue screens, and nothing shows in Device Manager as being unknown or unidentified.

However, I am confident that this is driver related, as it occurred directly after installing three driver downloads from Sony. I've already uninstalled everything that I installed from Sony - it was things like the webcam capture software, utilities software etc etc - so t... Read more

Current OS is Windows 10 Home V. 1511, OS Build 10586.589. The system worked perfectly until last month, when windows automatically attempted to update to the Anniversary Update. That update failed, and ever since the computer has been stuck in the following sequence: - Works perfectly for a period (including utilizing material on the data hard drive). The length of this period has generally increased after the sets of Windows updates released at the end of August and this past week - at present it can sometimes run for a full day before encountering any error.- Without obvious cause, desktop background goes black and the OS begins crashing. Start menu can be opened once, but nothing can be selected, taskbar does not work, shortcuts do not work, internet connection shuts off, Ctrl+Alt+Delete/Escape do not work (produce error messages), running programs remain on screen and responsive for a brief period, various errors messages for background programs (Onedrive, etc.) appear.- Eventually, a BSOD usually appears (if not, the machine is simply frozen and I have to hard reset). The only BSOD that has appeared is "Critical_Process_Died."

After getting my laptop (esystem) back from a charlatan that wanted to charge me 80 quid for getting rid of my bios password, i found the password and found that windows xp had been installed on it! the os was vista, i tried to reinstall vista but to no avail due to a message saying : windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing or corrupt staus 0xc00000e9 file: windows\system32\drivers\acpi.sys
ican't get past this
any help would be appriciated, thanks.
 

A:Critical system driver is missing or corrupt staus 0xc00000e9 file: windows\system32\

hm ... I think that is referring to your HDD drivers. If you don't have a drivers disk already, then:

1.) Enter your BIOS
2.) Write down the make and model of your HDD
3.) Download the drivers for your HDD from it's manufacturer's website.
4.) Burn the driver to a disk (a jump drive might work, I can't remember)
5.) Your Windows installation menu should have a "load drivers" option some where.

EDIT: Nice catch, Archean! My tired brain didn't pick-up on that time-saving possibility.

There are downloadable versions of Windows repair discs.
Download the repair disc of the same version of Windows that you have installed (including 32 bit/64 bit) and boot from it then select the automatic repair function. It may need to be run up to 3 times to fix everything.

I got another call from my Dad today. After cleaning his computer completely last month with help from BleepingComputer.com there is another problem so I went to check it out. I can't believe it.

Now on startup a fake system scan runs with many warning of I/O errors and critical hard drive problems. It tries to take you to file-recovery-system.com to buy something. Obviously it is a virus/hijack. I searched on the web for fixes and was able to use RKill.exe to at least stop the process and the warnings. I tried to install MBAM but the install failed twice, I get a permission denied warning. I tried to install after restarting in safe mode, but had the same access denied at the end of the install.

Computer is Windows 7. I am posting from my clean computer since the browser redirects on his computer make it almost impossible.

I am getting lots of critical errors in the event viewer. Event ID = 100, 200, 400, 307, 402.... (Below are the details for a couple of them). I have seen several posts on the web for this issue but no solutions. It seems to be an issue that affects a lot of vista installs on all different pc / laptops. I'm running an IBM (lenovo) T61 laptop. I don't know if these issues are related but frequently when I reboot the laptop it will hang during the boot up. When this happens I need to Hard Boot the laptop, I will then get the message that windows did not shut down correctly and asks to 1) run a repair restore or 2) boot window normal. Sometimes I need to do this several times before it will boot up. I?m afraid the day is coming where it will not boot up at all.

I would appreciate any information someone might have.

I own a Asus N71Jq Series laptop. I was browsing the web. The laptop crashed. When trying to reboot, the "Starting windows" would appear, together with the big Windows logo. I could reboot in normal mode and in safe mode. I chose for safe mode, to no avail. After this, the screen went black and all I could do was move the white cursor. I tried rebooting again and again to no avail.

I picked up my Asus User manual, and it told me to press [f9] during the booting of the laptop. This allowed it to use the Recovery Partition. To no effect. I selected the option, and a light blue/gray screen would appear, I'm assuming the background of the Recovery Partition screen. That was it. I could move the cursor but that was all. It was exactly the same, except the background color had changed.

Next I used the Recovery DVDs (AI Recovery Burner), [Esc] on bootup, select optical drive and press [Enter] to boot from Recovery DVD. Then [OK] to start to restore the image. Then [OK] to confirm system recovery.

Hi all,

I cannot get into Windows due to problem booting and would greatly appreciate any help. Here is how it happened.

I was surfing the net and all of a sudden my screen frozed up while my harddrive suddenly went very quiet while its lights were still on. My computer did not respond so I tried to restart my pc. The screen then came up with the following error:

"Intel Boot Agent Version 4.0.19
...
Intel Base-Code, PXE-2.1 (Build 083)
...

PXE-E53: No Boot filename received

PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel PXE ROM.

Boot Failure: System Halted"

I have WindowsXP installed but don't have the disc anymore so I'm hoping the solution to this problem will not require reinstallation or the disc. Also, I have not made any recent changes on my computer settings so this error seems to be have come up out of nowhere. My computer had been working fine before this and I have no idea why this error happened.

(Not sure if this info will help or even relevant but I have a router and a home network set up with another computer (a laptop). I did not make any changes on their setting prior to this error.)

Thank you very much for any help in advance.

Why Black Magic? Let me get to it.
I had a dual boot Win XP and Windows 7. One beautiful day last week, my Windows XP hard drive seized and is now as good as dead.
The Windows 7 Hard drive works, but Windows 7 won't boot.

I have already tried just about everything I could, so if you think of something, I probably tried it.

The bottom line is that the only documented way to fix this issue would be to go back in time and either install BCDedit on my Win7 drive or perform a clean install of win 7. Which is what I did on another hard drive, by the way.

Now, since my options are limited but I have a perfectly good win7 installation that won't boot, I found this tutorial:

Migrate to Windows 7 from an XP dual-boot configuration | Microsoft Windows | TechRepublic.com

which explains how to "properly" eliminate the WinXP partition from a Win7, WinXP dual boot.

One of the steps, unfortunately, is to copy the Boot.ini and other files from the WinXP partition to the Win7 partition, which I cannot do. Otherwise, there is little difference between my situation and the one in the tutorial.

This is where the black magic comes in: what if I go to another WinXP computer (say, my netbook or an old winXP I have) and copy the Boot files from there, paste tehm into my win7 drive and edit them to reflect a dual boot, then proceed with the same steps as the tutorial?

What do you windows geniuses think? Can it work?

There is a detailed version of this post below. For simplicity's sake I am making a shortened version. I installed Ubuntu, and ran into trouble. Like the kind that you can't boot your computer with. Because my computer is set to boot from the optical drive before the hard disk I was able to install Ubuntu to a disk and restart my computer to Ubuntu and Windows. During this process I had to do a system restore, which seems to have done nothing but uninstall the software for my external wireless antenna. I tried to reinstall the antenna, but it didn't work because I installed the hardware before the software. this led other users of the same computer t believe Ubuntu was the problem. Uninstalling it was easier said than done, and now instead of uninstalling it, I am only able to [successfully] boot from it.

Please try and solve this. -Miles Martin (MM)

I am currently running Ubuntu 12.04.1. I will further explain my predicament below. I realize not many people will want to read a post as long as that but please, for my sake, please do.

Edit: The post *will* be posted below. It apparently needs to be Moderated. Oh well.

A:I can only successfully boot from Ubuntu, as my boot file was removed.

Here's my recount of the situation, from the top.

-I had downloaded Ubuntu as a .iso file; I intended on creating an installation CD from it.
-My first CD outright didn't work. It was just an .iso, unmounted. I didn't know this wouldn't work, so I went to check in the BIOS what the boot order was. I deduced that the file was unmountable from the fact that the CD was in pristine condition, and the optical drive containing the disk was first in the boot order.
-In essence, I did the same thing with the second CD, but I didn't know I was doing so. I learned this after I got the same results, but with a twist: it brought up the System Restore window, because I shut down the computer manually. I had no option but to restore the system to the last restore point. To my knowledge it had been fairly recent that we created a Point, but not recent enough. It kept our files, but not the information on how to run the wireless antenna.
-At this point I was frustrated: cursing under my own breath, etc. I realized I was down to one CD, and I didn't think it would work. I looked carefully and found I wasn't selecting the option which made the CD mountable. There. Problem solved, so I thought. I wrote the disk at 8x speed, as to ensure good quality.
-I used InfraRecorder to create the mountable CD. I forget the mode InfraRecorder was in, but anyone who can help me will know.
-From there I proceeded to install Ubuntu, but made the deadly error: I forgot to create a System... Read more

Hi all! I had to reset (disconnect power) our D400 home server because it did not react.After booting all LEDs look like the system is online after reboot. Blue power LED, blue Network LED, blue HDD LED, blue system diagnostic LED and the HDD-LEDs oh both HDDs are blue.But I can not connect to or ping the home server. Is it possible that booting has not finished yet (I'm waiting for 3 hours now) because the home server performs a file system check? The HDDs sound like there is activity... Thanks and regards!

A:D400 does not boot - file system check during boot...

hi aladiim,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
It's possible that the D400 is performing a chkdsk on the drives for consistency but 3 hours seems long unless there's something wrong with one the drives. If the server is still not booting up after a couple of more hours, you may need to restore the home server. To do this, you will need to:
 
1. Press and hold the power button on the D400 server until it shuts off
2. Remove all HDD's to prevent data loss
3. Press and hold the reset button at the back of the D400 server until the system status LED turns red and starts to blink
4. Insert the Home Server Recovery DVD on the client computer and run it
5. Follow the screen instructions and Choose Server Recovery (recommended) to recover from system failure - Note that system settings and user accounts will be lost.
 
 
Hope this helps

I broke one my own cardinal rules on Thursday the 25th by accessing the hotel wifi which was 9 digit pin protected, the pin being generated randomly when the key card was made.

I have two accounts (one the original MS account which I never use).  I logged into the original account and did not get the same pop-up for File Name Warning which makes me think there might be something in the registry for the other login.  I ran a Webroot scan and a Malwarebytes scan both of which came up empty.  Some of the webroot features were not working which then made me a bit suspicious and in fact it only scanned about 7500 files which is way low. Also noticed that two hidden icons were present but the icons were not visible and could not be launched.

Hi everybody,

I have a computer that is running Windows XP Pro and I receive the error "Invalid boot.ini file" when I turn the machine on. I have done some research and I ran the recovery console from the XP CD.

Hey,

I previously had a Windows 8/Ubuntu dual boot setup and I decided to upgrade to Windows 8.1 and erase the Linux partition. After doing both of these things, Windows 8.1 still has an entry for Ubuntu in the boot order and Ubuntu still shows up in the BIOS, and I have multiple entries for Windows Boot Manager and Windows 8.1 in the BIOS as well.

I'd like to get everything in order. I downloaded EasyBCD to check out what was going on and I currently see this:
I've tried deleting the Ubuntu entry but it keeps coming back every time I restart. I also looked at a few other BCD entries and from what I could tell, I really only need one for Windows 8.1, so I'd like to find a reliable way to get rid of those other junk entries.

I already tried making a recovery USB and using the recovery console with the commands:
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /rebuildbcd

The first two worked but the last command wouldn't complete. I got a message saying the installation was on an unknown device. Nothing changed as a result of running these commands.

If anyone has any insight, it'd be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.
