Windows 10 cumulative update causes 'reboot loop' havoc for some users

Q: Windows 10 cumulative update causes 'reboot loop' havoc for some users

Quote:




Microsoft's first cumulative update for Windows 10 - KB3081424 - is causing havoc for some users. How do I know this? Because I spent a good part of my Sunday morning dealing with it, that's how.

The problem, in a nutshell, is that the update puts affected systems into an endless crash loop. The update tries to install, gets to a certain point, fails, and then displays the unhelpful "We couldn't complete the updates, undoing the changes."

If it stopped there things wouldn't be too bad, but because Microsoft now forces updates onto Windows 10 users, the OS kept trying - and failing - to install the update, which in turn placed the system into a periodic crash/reboot loop that put quite a dent in my productivity.

Recent (Oct 15th) huge number of security updates, caused grief on 32bit Vista SP2 which I have narrowed down to the IE8 Cumulative Security Update by a process of elimination re-applying patchsets & testing the box.

With IE8 cumaltive security, in Stage 3 of "Configuring Update" it seems to be stuck at 0%, the chime occurs, but after a while the screen blanks, and the hardware resets a little later causing a reboot.

Updated ATI Radeon Video driver to latest has been to no avail; the machine seems solid in use and is also running Linux (and updated an old install with 10 months of patches) perfectly. Checking BIOS & drivers are up to date hasn't turned anything up, and the box and install generally solid. I tried booting with 'Safe options' to configure the update, but that did not help, so it would appear unlikely the resets are a driver issue.

Whilst I have the system back through system restore to checkpoint before the update, and have now hidden this patch, this leaves me with an insecure IE8.

1) Can I report the problem with the update anywhere?
2) Could I obtain smaller patchsets to find the likely culprit?
3) Can I downgrade IE8 to IE7?

Obviously I can use FF-3.5 for normal browsing, but some Windows programs & sites try to force use of IE, so the security issue does matter. This has caused much inconvenience and time, to a relatively tech savvy user, so one would hope a cumumaltive patch becomes available which does not have t... Read more

Hi All,

I've been looking around the Internet for a solution to "Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3147458)" failing to update; and while there are a multitude of success stories out there, none of the solutions worked for me.

In researching an unrelated issue, it occurred to me that I may have a customization that might be interfering with this update, and the (now mandatory...sigh) Windows Update process:

I have moved my \Users directory to a custom location using a junction (a symbolic link/shortcut).

There are many (unsupported) ways to do this, and a quick Google shows that a multitude of people are not happy with the standard "Users folder lives on the system disk and you can move libraries/directories using the System Settings" solution provided by Microsoft. This is especially common for folks who boot from an SSD, but have tons and tons of large files which wouldn't fit on that SSD; especially if you anticipate the need to create new user accounts but don't want to write a script or hand-configure each new account to move the directories to the secondary volume via the available System Settings.

My method (as found online) was to robocopy my initial Users folder just after a clean install of Windows 10, and then create a junction at C:\Users which pointed to D:\Users (which is my large HDD).

This causes a problem with some updates when they need to make adjustments to files stored within \Users.

I need some help here if possible. I tried doing a windows update on my PC last week and it got stuck in the famous reboot loop. It tried 3 times over an hour-and-a-half and finally decided to revert the changes, which took another couple attempts and another hour. For a while after that it couldn't even find any updates to let me try again, even though it clearly failed as the log showed most of the various updates that day failed.

Today I tried it again, since it showed all the updates available again, and the same exact thing happened, only now it can't even seem to revert the changes. After 3 attempts at updating, it says "windows updates failed - reverting changes", where it gets stuck for a half-an-hour before rebooting or shutting down. But it won't revert changes now - it keeps trying and fails and then reboots and tries again. I'm in safe mode right now. I didn't update any optional updates - only the important ones checked by default.

Why is this happening and what do I have to do to get this problem solved? This happened once before last year and a few weeks later it seems to update okay when I tried it again. It's getting so I'm afraid to run windows update. Ridiculous.

Hi all,

I've been having a problem with Windows updates on my (Win7) pc for some time now.

Downloading the updates usually works, but after rebooting it says "error configuring Windows updates reverting changes". That's when the loop starts: my system reboots and tries to configure the updates again, fails and reboots etc. The only way to get out of this is to press F8 and use system recovery. After this happened today I checked Windows update. All of the updates failed except for one(?).

- So far, I downloaded (and ran) the SystemUpdate Readiness Tool.

- I ran the SFC scan. It identified a number of problems, but it was unable to fix all of them.

- I can't include Windows update error codes in this post, because they do not appear (anymore). Therefor I check the update history instead.

I wanted to attach the log collection in this post. However, the zip file I created exceeds the 8mb limit. How could I best share the zip file (9.45mb) on this forum?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Kind regards,
Bas

Okay so I just got a new laptop today. It has Windows 8.

First thing I did when I started it up was remove some of the pre installed programs that I didn't want. Next I went to windows update. There were 79 updates I needed to install. Did that. It rebooted, now it said configuring, etc. Then it said windows failed configuring...yada yada yada. I think it got to 98%, might have gotten to 100%. So it rebooted and the same message keeps going. Does this in a loop.

How do I make it stop?

Hi all,

My sister seems to be having a problem with her laptop that I cannot fix, its on Vista Business. Automatic updates were taking place and when it rebooted it went to 3 of 3 complete - 0% and then it just restarts and doesn't do nothing more. I tried LKGD, safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, looked online for some resolutions and found nothing, we do not have/can't find the disc that came with the OS, so thats not an option for repair, so I wondered if any of you out there had any ideas?

Hi!

My brother's laptop has Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit installed. Yesterday Windows installed a lot of updates and asked for the usual restart to complete them. Computer was rebooted and ever since it's stuck at the blue Welcome screen. "Configuring updates, do not turn off your computer" this is the last thing you see for 1-2 minutes then it reboots automatically.
My first thought was that System Restore is gonna solve this, as it has helped me in the past too.
The problem is, of course, that Windows cannot complete the boot, so the usual "type cmd in the search bar" doesn't work. I've tried "Safe boot with command prompt", it cannot complete boot either.
I've tried with a Windws 7 (Prof 64bit) install DVD, I clicked on the System Restore and it gave me an error message: specify operating system! reboot and choose an operating system". I don't even understand, it only has one op. system installed.
Also, aut. repair gave me another error message that this installation disc is not compatible with the Windows the computer has installed. This could be the problem??
If I download the same version (Ultimate 64-bit), make a bootable pendrive and try restoring with that, it's gonna work? This is what I hope, otherwise I'm out of ideas. Obviously, the quickest and most simple way would be a clean install (but there's only one drive, with a lot of personal data, so those would be lost).

Any idea guys???

Hello,
I am having problem with the windows Vista 64 bit that is stuck in a Stage 3 of 3 reboot loop. I tried using the f8 key upon restart, no luck. My system restore disk of 4 years would not run. HP does not keep factory restore disk after 2 years. I did some research and found the problem is 2 files, located in c:\windows\sxs. They are pending.xml and cleanup.xml. They need to be delete in the cmd mode. Since I can not get there, I removed the hard drive from the computer and added to a laptop as a secondary drive. I still could not delete them. They were protected files. How can I delete them? Also, the hard drive is starting to fail. Can I copy the factory recovery file/folder to new hard drive once it is set up?
If the file can be move, then I will not worry about the re-loop.

Mark

A:Windows update Stage 3 of 3 reboot loop.

If you Take Ownership then you should be able to delete those 2 files.
If you do get your system to boot I would make a backup image using Macrium Reflect or Easus ToDo Backup Free in case the drive does fail you can image to another drive. Or check out drive cloning free software. Some products are better than others when it comes to restoring onto a bigger HD(and I assume you'd buy bigger if it's cheap again to do so instead of getting the exact same size HD.)

Hello all,

I have a lab (of about 20 of the same machines).
windows 7 professional, 32 bit OS, 4gigs ram...

Three of these machines recently have become stuck in an endless loop after some windows updates. They reboot at "applying windows operation 1170".

I've recently put Deep Freeze on these machines, and they're stuck in a frozen state right now.

I've tried safe mode, startup recovery, unfreezing via the server console... with no luck with anything.

So, I'm assuming Deep Freeze is the cause of the problem. Is there anyway I can get into the computer to disable it?

The message will stay onscreen for a few moments then the laptop will restart and here we go again.

I tried to do a system restore but the is no restore point prior to when the updates were installed. I don’t have a disk as vista came preloaded on the pc.

Today windows downloaded and installed SP1 automatically. After that, the power went off, when it came back and I booted the PC it started updating as it would usually do, it finished updating then rebooted and started updating again, this happened around three times (no failure, just installs over and over again). I became tired so I shut it down and it displayed "Failure configuring Service pack. Reverting changes", after that it rebooted again but began installing the SP once more, I rebooted again in safe mode and it began reverting changes once more only to reboot again and attempt to update once more.

Right now it's reverting changes once more and I'm just sitting here waiting and I don't know what to do (also, it's been reverting for quite a long time, around 30 minutes)

I'm hoping somebody might be able to advise me on an issue I'm having. I'm not the most techy so I'm hoping I can explain it accurately.

It seems to be (from what I have discovered) linked to the Windows 10 Cumulative Updates.

Issue 1 began on the 28/01/16 as soon as Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3124262) was installed

I noticed that there was now a delay of about 30-40 seconds between switching the laptop on and the Windows log in screen appearing. During this time is the annoying rotating circle.
Then once my username and password were entered, there was another longer delay (complete with rotating circle) before taking me to the desktop.

Issue 2 began a few days later when Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems (KB3135173) was installed. I no longer had access to the windows start menu (I had to right click) or the Action menu. Issue 1 also persisted.

I did some googling and discovered that these issues may be because of the updates themselves (not installing properly) and found the page for a manual download for (KB3135173)

I'm just wondering if I did the right thing. I uninstalled (manually) both the Cumulative and security Updates for (KB3124262) and (KB3135173) and manually reinstalled (KB3135173) .

Since June, when bought it has a dual boot setup with PClinuxOS with no problems until now.
The laptop was not shut down for a couple days after patch tuesday.
When fired up on Friday 13th morning, an error message : ireboot side-byside error. Not to blame ireboot. Any app started such as firefox gets same error.
it almost seemed to be so much like malware. Antivirus and spyware turned off by windows security warning in systray etc.
But it looks like patch tuesday february 2009 broke this system.
When trying to install the update, it goes into a reboot loop. it gets to 83% the computer reboots, gets to 83% and reboots again.
This laptop is used by a savy woman with auto update on, avg antivirus, does not open attachments or click on links in email. and uses firefox.
During this week noted firefox should be updated to 3.6, and ie7 was a target.
thanks in advance, and apologize for not hanging around in here to help others. All my linux clients don't have malware or update issues, but they have friends with windows.

Microsoft is rolling out the first cumulative package of non-security-focused updates and fixes for Windows 10 one week after the company began making available to users the release-to-manufacturing (RTM) version of the operating system.

Referred to by some company watchers as "Service Release 1," the actual update package is officially known as KB3081424. (Thanks to The Verge's Tom Warren for a pointer to the KB.)

Hello,
I'm trying to install the latest Windows Update - Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3189866) - however it's stuck at 45%. Restart won't help. Did you had this issue?

Here's how to install balky Windows 10 cumulative patch KB 318986

I'm seeing posts all over the web from folks trying to install the latest Windows 10 Anniversary Update (version 1607) cumulative update. KB 3189866 is supposed to bring Windows 10 AU to build 14393.187, but reports say the installer gets stuck at 45 percent, 48 percent, 95 percent, and various other points along the way.

The problem's widespread, and Microsoft has known about it since shortly after the patch dropped. Since it's a cumulative update, there's no easy solution.

Microsoft will certainly figure out what's blocking the patch, but in order to fix it the company will have to release a new cumulative update. Unless it can find a magic way to modify a released cumulative update, the only solution is a new cumulative update that absolves the sins of the original. That's one of the big problems with these massive, one-way "as a service" patches. It's also a totally predictable problem, as I've been saying for almost two years.

Am unable install this large update. Have tried several posted fixes I.e registry fix to delete orphaned account(there wasn't one), install update standalone(didn't work), applying windows update fix(didn't work)
and also amending windows update service(didn't work).
It appears that quite a few people are having this problem and some of these remedies work and others don't. Anyone with the same problem and ideas how to fix?

I had that also with this update.
So here is what I did to get over it.
I restarted it then ran the Disc Clean Up app
Which cleared all traces from the Disc
Then let it download and install, which took some time
Then it installed to 30% then Restarted then finished at 100%
Which again sat there for some time then flashed up it had finished and now running all ok on all my systems
Hope that may hopefully help you with your problem
Let us know how you get on

I know most people here are complaining about anniversary update 1607 but Im not able to even reach that, Update KB3176493 is causing me a huge headache, it installed and reversed install about 20 times now, I almost cant use the computer any more. Ive tried every possible guide and solution I could find, including applying the update from a full offline installer, nothing works.

I have a different laptop that had no problems at all with this particular update. Just for the sake of clarity the ONLY thing I changed in this Windows installation was changing the directory of user files, if that's whats causing it I would happily change it back.

I would change it back and then see if you are then able to install the update.
If it still does not do it then you can always revert back to what you changed
Remember before you do create a restore point.
Good luck and keep us posted on how you get on

It's Patch Tuesday, and that means software updates for all. New cumulative updates are rolling out for Windows 10 PCs, tablets, and phones, bringing the build number to 10586.318.

It's available for everyone, including non-Insiders as well as Insiders that are using the Release Preview ring. This update skips over the last one - build 10586.240 for PCs and 10586.242 for Mobile - which shipped to the Release Preview ring, but never to Production.

As with most cumulative updates, there are no new features. Instead, the new build focuses on fixes and stability improvements.

Here's what's new in build 10586.318 for PCs:

Improved reliability in a number of areas including Cortana, Bluetooth, Shell, Internet Explorer 11, Microsoft Edge, Miracast, and USB.
Fixed memory leak that occurs when opening a portable document format (PDF) form multiple times.
Fixed issues with text alignment for right to left languages in Internet Explorer 11 and Microsoft Edge.
Fixed issue that affected Bluetooth function when a PC resumes from sleep.
Fixed issue where user accounts weren't locked out after a number of failed sign in attempts.
Fixed issue with revised daylight saving time.
Fixed issue that sometimes corrupts CompactFlash cards inserted into a card reader.
Fixed issue that caused recorded video to be lost when answering an incoming call on some phones.
Fixed issue that could result in unexpected battery drain while the phone screen is off.

Microsoft has just rolled out a new cumulative update for PCs running Windows 10 preview builds, so if you?re not part of the Insider program, you?re not going to see it.

What?s odd with this update is that it takes the version number to Windows 10 14393.82, which the exact same version that another cumulative update released by the company earlier this week brought. In fact, Microsoft even says that if you have the old update running on your computer, you?re not going to see the new one, which is kind of weird, given the fact that it also includes an exclusive change.

Microsoft explains that this new update brings the same fixes as the previous one, with just one exception, but because you can?t see it, you?re not going be able to get this improvement - the chances are that it?ll be part of another cumulative update planned for the next weeks, so you should receive it anyway at some point in the near future.

?We have released Cumulative Update (KB3176934) to Windows 10 Insider Preview Build 14393 on PCs which will bring the build number to 14393.82. This Cumulative Update includes the same fixes as KB3176932 but with an additional fix: Improved download size optimization of updates,? Microsoft explains.

Could be released to retail users soon

What?s also interesting is that these cumulative updates are currently available for insiders only, so retailer users are very likely to get them in the coming weeks when all the testing is completed.

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB3097617 earlier today and the first reports pointing to problems experienced during installation or even after that are already reaching the web.

For example, a number of users who turned to Microsoft's Community forums explain that KB3097617 fails to install on their PCs, undoes all changes and then restarts the machine, pushing it in an infinite reboot loop just like it happened with previous cumulative updates.

Microsoft user Darkc0de explains what happens on his Windows 10 computer:

?The update is just not installing, after asking for a restart windows update, initializes goes till 30% Then PC restarts and from 30, goes till 54% and restarts again this time it says We Could Not complete undoing changes and updates 2- 3 Team PC restarts again saying undoing changes and finally finally PC starts.?

Microsoft officials say the latest Windows 10 cumulative update fixes problems some users were having with Windows Store. What else is in it? We have no idea.
 
The newest cumulative update is KB3081438. The Microsoft Support page says nothing about the specific features and fixes that are new to this update beyond "This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality of Windows 10."

"This update includes improvements to enhance the functionality"
Any update with a vague description like that should be considered suspicious. If I were offered an update worded like that for my windows 8.1 machine I would definitely refuse it, if they won't say what it is for it is either not important or not pleasant. Remember that this is the sort of language which was the wording used for the KB page of kb3035583 when it was first released (it's page has been updated since to give a more accurate description of what it does, but when that update first came out it's page was all vague like that).

Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3194496)

Three days ago my desktop tried to update 1607 3 times. Each time on reboot it says failed to update and reverts. Each day it tries again at shutdown.

Yesterday my second(son's) computer updated and all I could see was a black screen with a circle. Had to do a repair and it reverted back 2 two updates. Note, this computer does not have integrated graphics - so that fix process would not work.

Now the wife's computer wants to update but I am not restarting it - if hers goes down it will be hell in my household.

I looked on the web and don't see much about this update getting fixed by Microsoft. Any ideas what I should do? My main computer is asking to try again and it will just fail or worse - black screen. I told the family not to shutdown the wife's but I know at some point it will try to do the update on its own.

This is the worst mess we have ever had, but all I see are web pages about the anniversary update - not this one.

Microsoft has recently released Windows 10 cumulative update KB3193494 in order to bring the KB3189866 saga to an end, but it turns out that there are users who are experiencing issues with this new patch as well.

Some of those who were offered the new cumulative update are reporting problems when attempting to install it, and the way it happens looks very similar to what others have experienced in the past.

In most of the cases, the cumulative update fails to install, and it simply rolls back before getting users back to the desktop. The update is then reoffered and redownloaded before the system is once again rebooted to attempt the install.

Users who couldn?t install the original KB3189866 update were confident that this new one fixes the problems, so they rushed to install it.

?I have already read some issues with this update and that you should install the offline updater. It has the same problem. Microsoft released KB3193494 to resolve the download issue, so I tried again. Still the same problem,? one of them explains on Microsoft?s Community forums.



Post-installation problems

Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3197954 Fails to Install as Well

Windows 10 cumulative updates are certainly pretty helpful for the majority of users running Microsoft?s latest OS version, but at the same time, they are turning into sort of nightmare for others who can?t simply install them successfully.

Issues with Windows 10 cumulative updates have been around for a while, and Microsoft has tried to fix them on several occasions, but for some reason, they keep coming back pretty much in the same form.

KB3197954 makes no exception, and after being pushed to Windows 10 users last week, it appears that it fails to install on a number of machines due to a cause that?s yet to be determined.

More than just installation issues
Posts on Microsoft?s Community forums are pointing towards various problems experienced with cumulative update KB3197954, including system freezes, but in most of the cases, it?s the typical ?failing to install? issue that makes it impossible for some users to deploy the patch on their computers.

?Cumulative Update for Windows 10 Version 1607 for x64-based Systems (KB3197954) keeps failing to install on my system.

Microsoft rolled out Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194496 for computers running 1607 last week, but as we reported recently, there are plenty of users out there who are experiencing problems when trying to install it.

While this isn?t surprising at all given the fact that similar issues were spotted with many other cumulative updates, Microsoft has already confirmed that it?s investigating reports and that a fix is on its way.

Fortunately, someone on the Microsoft Community forums has found a workaround for this problem in order to successfully install the cumulative update on any Windows 10 computer.



The workaround
What you need to do is to fire up File Explorer and delete the entire folder at the following location (administrator privileges are needed, so make sure you are logged in with an admin account):


Code:
C: > Windows > System32 > Tasks > Microsoft > XblGameSave
After that, launch the Registry Editor by typing regedit.exe in the Start menu and delete the following registry key ? once again, administrator privileges are needed to do this:


Code:

A:How to Fix Windows 10 Cumulative Update KB3194496 Installation Issues

Also, if you have completely uninstalled (deleted) XBox and all associated items from your system, then KB3194496 will not install.

To get KB1394496 to install, you have to completely re-install XBox - and not forget to install all associated items.

There is a DISM re-install package method for advanced users, and then for everyone else there is a clean install of Windows 10.

Don't you just love it... ?

* * * * *

The better solution is to disable Windows Update service and only re-enable it to install any cumulative updates -- after waiting for at least two months for a "fixed" cumulative update.

I have a Windows 10 system upgraded from Win7. Windows Update failed on this recent cumulative update. The web has lots of hits about this. After trying a number of fixes, the following worked for me:

1. I went into Disk Management and saw that my System Reserved Partition was 100MB vs the minimum recommended (according to some sites) of 400MB.

2. I used MiniTool Partition Wizard (free edition) to resize the System Reserved Partition to 450MB. That required burning a CD from a downloaded ISO.

3. Since the Windows update failed again, I deleted the contents of C:\Windows\SoftwareDistribution\Download (I did NOT delete the DOWNLOAD folder itself, just the contents)

4. BINGO! The update installed.

Hope this helps someone else who may have this problem.

Why o why is Microsoft so slapdash with its updates. The error code I am getting covers everything under the sun and offers no solutions to the problem.
I am so fed up following so many leads from its advice pages but can never get to resolving the problem. Is there anyone anywhere that has overcome this problem.
I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit IE9.0.1

Thanks

Microsoft rolled out a new Windows 10 cumulative update for PCs running version 1607 (Anniversary Update), and just as we reported yesterday, there were plenty of users who experienced installation issues.

In a post on the firm?s Community forums, Microsoft engineers confirm the installation problems and explain that the team is already investigating and developing a fix.

?Investigating?
There are no details as to when exactly this new cumulative update fix could be released, but it?s worth noting that Microsoft itself says that there?s no point in trying to install this cumulative update because it?ll keep failing anyway.

?Teams have dug into this issue and do believe the cause has been identified. The correct team is developing a fix/workaround and once we have the full details, we'll be posting that information. For your affected machines, there's no need to keep attempting the install. It'll keep failing. In the mean time, hold tight! We're all over this and will keep sharing information along the way,? Microsoft says.

Several company engineers have already joined the discussion thread on the Community forums, asking for more details on the problem, so it?s very clear that the firm is actively investigating the problem.

What?s more frustrating, however, is that this cumulative update actually experienced the exact same issues when being tested ... Read more

http://news.softpedia.com/news/wind...-99-tb-data-size-in-disk-cleanup-509258.shtml

Windows 10 cumulative update KB3194798 is failing to install for some users, but on the other hand, a number of those who actually manage to deploy it successfully are reporting a different bug.

Disk Cleanup is reporting a disk size of 3.99 TB after installing this cumulative update and users are claiming that this is happening no matter how much storage they have on their computers.

?Disk Cleanup listed the size of the Windows Update files that could be deleted as 3.99 TB, yes terabytes! What was shocking was the fact that I only have a 250 GB SSD drive on my laptop, one PC has a 256 GB SSD main drive and a 2 TB secondary, and the third has a 500 GB SSD with a 2 TB secondary drive,? one user explained on Microsoft?s Community forums.

In most of the cases, cleaning the disk still works correctly, although some are complaining that it still takes too long to complete. The process indeed seems to be rather slow after installing this cumulative update, but other than the incorrect data size, no issue appears to be caused to Disk Cleanup.

Installation issues
Microsoft hasn?t yet acknowledged the bug, and a workaround is not yet available, but the company is very unlikely to fix the problem too fast since it doesn?t cause anything beside the incorrect data size in Disk Cleanup.

On the other hand, Microsoft must look into reports of cumulative update KB3194798 failing to install, as... Read more

This is an interesting move. So those running 7 and 8, how do you feel about this move?



What Microsoft won't be doing after October, however, is shipping the individual hotfixes any more. Fixes will only be available through the Monthly Rollup or security-only update. This means that the ability to pick and choose individual fixes to apply will be removed; they'll be distributed and deployed as a singular all-or-nothing proposition.

Just like another poster I am having the same reboot loop problem. So far 6 computers at my work place have started having the same issues within the last 4 days. Very strange as this many PCs going down in such a short time has never happened. Will not load safe mode and just reboots when it goes to load windows.

Have used ubcd4win to run a virus scan, malware scan, restore registry files to a previous version. Used windows cd to run a chkdsk, fixmbr, fixboot. Also ran hard drive diagnostics which came back with no errors. I have not yet done a repair install of windows.

No go on any of those solutions. Anyone have any other ideas about this problem? I am a little puzzled and will post the complete STOP error in just a short bit.

Yesterday, my computer's surge protector became unplugged a couple of times while i was using it. After the 2nd or 3rd time, I restarted it and it got to the Windows Login screen and just rebooted. It keeps doing that, If I left it on, it will just restart itself every time it gets to the windows log in screen.

I have tried safe mode and the same thing happens. When I get to windows login screen, the thing just restarts again. I tried VGA mode also, same thing happens.

I guess I'm looking for help to try and fix this problem. I'm thinking it has something to do with the computer trying to protect against the power failure when the plug was kicked out. But, I honestly don't know. Any answers you guys have would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.

Hi,

I'm running Windows XP and when I turned on my computer this morning it displayed the screen informing me thatt Windows had not shut down properrly and gave me the options of how to start it:

Safe Mode

Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Start Windows Normally

I tried each in turn but before Windows could load, it rebooted the system and returned to the same screen described above.

I then pressed F8 at Startup to enter the Advanced Options Menu and disabled automatic restart on system failuree. This time when trying to load Windows, I got the BSOD and the following message:

'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 stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.

You may be thinking this should probably not be in the Hardware Forums, but I'm convinced of the possibility of a hardware problem. Please hear me out.

So yesterday, I tried to install my new video card. ATI Radeon 9800. I uninstalled all my old drivers before installation. It's a card that requires a direct connection to the power supply of my CPU. OK, no problem there. Hook it up, doesn't work. I get all sorts of garbeled symbols and horizontal/vertical fuzzy lines (draw problem?) in the Bios screen as well as in Windows.

OK, now I have an old VGA monitor that I have plugged into the DVI converter so it can connect to the video card. Obviously, that didn't work, so it was suggested that perhaps my CPU was configured to default to VGA and wouldn't read the DVI adaptor (or some kind of mix up of that sorts).

So I'd been trying to mess with the display settings in such a way that I could default to the right connection (DVI-VGA) so that my Vid card would work. Well, all of a sudden, my computer restarts, and now is stuck in a rebooting loop. I get through the Windows loading splash, but then a blue page pops up (too fast to read) and the system restarts itself. And this goes on again and again. I can't get into safemode. Even switching cards doesn't work. I put my old card in trying to get it to work, so that I can accually read what is being said on my screen without all the garbled sometimes flashing symbols.

I completely backed up all my information, booted from DVD, formatted and then started to install.

It copies/ expands all the files to 100%, then does a normal restart, It then comes up with starting windows> registering entries etc, the carries on finalising the install only to reboot itself????

After the reboot it gives me the windows recovery screen. If it tries to boot up it just goes into a reboot loop. I am sooo confused....

The thing is I would say I know my way around PC software and Hardware very well. I have tried different BIOS settings, Optimising defaults, Load-Fail Safe Defaults, Creating New Partitions etc...Please can anyone help??

My Spec is as follows:-

Intel E4400 Socket 775 2x2.00GHz 800MHz
Inno 3D SL7N73PVM - Onboard nVidia 7100 / Realtek HD Audio
2GB DDR OCZ Memory
500GB WD HDD
Pioneer Dual Layer DVD-RW

Your help is much appreciated, I just want to taste this new OS

Regards

Phil

A:Windows 7 Reboot Loop?

Have you tried another fresh format and install?

And make sure you unplug any hardware you don't need connected during install... computers sometimes don't like being poked that much and reboot on attempting to load.

If such hardware is connected, disconnect and try turning it on then, see if that solves it, if not, i would suggest trying another install.

My brother downloaded some file off the internet and executed it and now the computer just constantly reboots. Even when i try to go to safe mode it reboots after it loads certain .sys files. I also switched the infected drive to another computer and it would also reboot on that as well so its not a hardware issue. Will someone help me diagnose and fix this problem.

and welcome to the Forum

Any idea what file he downloaded? . .

What Brand/Model is the pc?

Do you have the XP installation disc?

Not booting on another pc is normal . . that will happen anytime the operating system try to run on a system other than it was installed on.

Ok im gonna tell you what i have tryed so far and beg for help . i am normally pretty good with computers so this is a last ditch effort. i have a 2 or so old emachines computer that is running a amd 3500 processoer 2 gigs of ram (4 sticks of 512) a geforce 7600 and200 gig hard drive plus a 160 gig drive i have also added. while i was at work i guess it crashed and my wife had to force boot it after a reboot it wouldnt do anything but post and get through bios then it would just blink a cursor forever. so i decided to do a windows restore. after the restore it would post show emachines flash and graphics card post then hit xp flash screen and reboot not even showing any BSOD (blue screen of death). so i ran a memtest and let it go for 7 passes everything checked out i tried restoring on another hard drive i have that i know is good same issue. so i rolled the dice and went and bought a new power supply. after coming home and installing power supply and booting it passed the flash screen and said windows wasnt propperly installed try again so i re restored and rebooted after flash screen it popped the BSOD and rebooted cant use safe mode cause it technically hasnt ever finished setup of windows. ok so after trying to boot a few more times hoping to get a flash of the bsod i got another idea i will try running Knopix and see if it will boot that so i know if its hardware or software. knoppix boots up and works fine. but still bsod reboot into windows. it has to be a ...

A:Windows xp media Reboot loop

What do you mean by a Windows 'restore' ? Sounds like you mean 'install'.

I would suggest removing all but one ram module and trying that way. If you get a problem, try at least once more with a different ram module.

Make sure nothing is attached to usb except mouse/keyboard.

Hi. So I went trough a LOT of ******* trouble to get here. So recently I've been trying to fix my fathers precious laptop. There are a lot of files in it even though it is an antique and still runs windows XP. Now there was a trojan virus that affected his system and it changed his date and it runs a lot slower. It also gets it to shut down every 20 minutes

Now I looked up a method online which was to disable system restore and restart in safe mode and install an anti virus (I have malwarebytes) and scan.

However, as I clicked on apply to apply the change to disable system restore, a prompt came up saying the computer was gonna shut down in an exact minute while system restore was still applying the change. I'm not sure if that wrecked my computer because as soon as I restarted, I tried to boot in safe mode with networking.

However when I did, it went to a blue startup screen and it goes to a black safe mode screen then a prompt comes up saying:
E:\WINDOWS\system32\presetup.cmd - FILE NOT FOUND!
E:\WINDOWS\system32\setupORG.exe - FILE NOT FOUND!
(setupORG.exe ->Original windows Setup.exe)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~
POSSIBLE CAUSE:
1."Preset.cmd" not exist in the i386 folder in UXPCD
"setupORG.exe" not exist in the i386 folder in UXPCD
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
2. Check your "txtsetup.sif" in the i386 folder on UXPCD

A:Windows XP stuck in reboot loop

Okay. Disregard everything I just said. It works now.

The problem is that it is still affected by the virus. Opening the installer or transferring malwarebytes to it via USB and opening mbam.exe gives some error about memory not found or something. I'm guessing this is a virus tactic.

I'm thinking of installing a newer OS since XP support has ended and thats why it got the virus.

BUT the problem is that the CD drive is not working so we can't install an OS that requires a CD to install.
Is there a way to install a new OS without a CD? I might get windows 8.1 or windows 7 on it but it is a really old laptop model. (Probably made around 2005 or older).


.. is anyone even reading this thread?

Hi there,
Can someone please help? I installed windows xp sp3 last night. It all installed fine but on restart i am stuck in a reboot loop!
I can't access safe mode or system restore or any of the other options.
I tried to use recovery console to help solve the problem but to no avail.
This is driving me crazy and really need to get this problem solved.
If i reboot in safe mode it starts to boot but then hangs and falls over at windows\sys32\Zonelabs\srescan.sys.
I assume this is a problem with Zone Alarm but had no issues till sp3 was installed
Any help would be most appreciated
