computer cycled through chkdsk, now computer has missing dll file

Q: computer cycled through chkdsk, now computer has missing dll file

I am now able to start computer without going through chkdsk, but I get a message.
The message says that mfc110u.dll is missing from my computer.  Try reinstalling and restarting.
Something to that effect.  And directly behind this dialog box are two others that says file download"   The one on top " do you want to open or save this file"   the file name is index.html       It is a firefox file and it will be saved to   C: Users/Daniel/ ...... etc.     The other dialog box shows a file being downloaded.   So strange.  Also I occasionally see a message about Windows needing to be genuine

Good morning/afternoon/evening.

Will try to keep this as short as possible.

Have a Dell Dimension E510 desktop with a 150gb hdd I partitioned when the computer was purchased in 2007. C:\ was sized to approx 30gb, and D:\ was sized to approx 120gb. Now, onto my current problem(s):
10 days ago, my desktop presented the following after a reboot:

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM". This also coincided with a power supply failure shortly thereafter, which has been replaced.

After replacing the power supply, the above error would still display after reboot. I attempted/completed the following:

1. Tapped the F8 key to get to the ADVANCED BOOT MENU, and tried the LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION option - to no avail. Still received the file missing or corrupt error.

2. Tried to get to SAFE MODE WITH COMMAND PROMPT from the ADVANCED BOOT MENU, but it would still result in the file missing or corrupt error.

3. Inserted the OEM OS disk and booted from there. The Windows XP Setup window appeared, with this:

"To Set up Windows XP now, press ENTER."
"To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R."
"To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3."

I selected and pressed the <R> key to enter the Recovery Console. This got me to:

Hey all,

Dropped my Asus eee netbook XP/Linux box the other day.
Added a new admin user to get it connected w/ vista laptop via crossover cable.
Had some problems after that & some hard reboots finally ending in the "File is missing or corrupt: C:\Windows\System32\Config\System" on boot .
Tried getting access thru Linux, boot no problem but could not get to that dir.
Removed Seagate drive from netbook & connected to vista box via usb.
Ran chkdsk /x from cmd & let run all night. FAIL with lack of disk space. Tried to find the failed chkdsk files w/o luck.
Read about chkdsk on this site & will NEVER use it again

I can get my data off the drive

Is there any hope to revive the XP OS?

Answer Match 60.9%

I'm having trouble with my very new computer, which I've narrowed down to the following sequence:
1. I restored computer to original factory settings (to rule out possible causes)
2. I ran msconfig, and checked the boxes 'Safe Mode' and 'Networking.' I got the following error message:
"System configuration cannot save the original boot configuration for later restoration. Boot changes will be reverted.

The system cannot find the file specified"
3. The default boot option disappeared from the boot menu (Windows 7, default OS, current OS).
4. When I restarted my computer, it would not boot and gave me the error 0xc00034, stating that the file \Boot\BCD was missing.

I did not do anything else with my computer after restoring the factory settings, and I did not connect to the internet. I originally encountered the problem when I wanted to try installing Windows updates in safe mode after some of the installations failed. I have replicated the error several times, including after successfully installing all Windows updates.

I got this computer less than two weeks ago. Is this problem particular to my computer, perhaps caused by a corrupted file? Should I try to return it and get a replacement?

A:Boot File Goes Missing (should I return new computer?)

Being that its a brand new computer in theory it shouldnt have any problems. i would certainly take it back and find out why theres problems and if it can be solved to your satisfaction. if not i would certainly get my money back as you certainly havent gotten what you paid for which would be a working computer at this point.

First you are going to need the Windows XP CD. If you do not have one you can download the Windows XP recovery Console ISO from here.
Write it to CD using a program like ImgBurn.
Once written to CD, boot your PC with the CD.
On the first screen press "r" to enter the recovery console (3rd option).
When asked which Windows you want to log in to type in the number that corresponds to the correct installation (Usually "1")
Enter the Administrator password (if asked) else just press enter if you do not have one.
Then at the command prompt type

chkdsk c: /r
and enter.
Allow chkdsk to run.
Restart the PC once done.

I think my husbands computer has a virus.   It is running windows 7.
It is so slow it is pretty much unusable.  He tried to update iTunes and received a message saying a file was missing (he didn't write down what it was).  It doesn't look like his windows updates are working.  He is now finding emails sent to all his outlook contacts going out that he didn't write with questionable links in them.
The virus protection he uses is ESet.  We tried to run malwarebytes but it is going so slow we stopped it.  It had been running for about 26 hours and didn't appear to be moving anymore at all.
Can the programs that someone will hopefully tell us to run to find the problem be run in safe mode?  Do you have to be connected to the internet to run them?  It seems to run a bit faster when not connected to the internet.
Hopefully someone can help us.

so.. I really feel the reason my registry got screwed up is because I tried out WindowBlinds. I felt like it slowed down my computer alot so I deleted it.

A couple days later I started getting messages that there was a chkdsk needed. I ran CCleaner and it didnt help at all. So i restarted the computer, it ran chkdsk for a couple hours...and when i logged back on i was still getting those messages.

I thought maybe my external harddrive was causing this so I unplugged it...but regardless all my programs started to crash too. Google chrome was complaining about a missing shockwave plug-in (which I know was 100% up to date) my windows explorer would crash, something popped up that said DrWatson Postmortem Debugger crashed (which I thought was CCleaner...but i dont really know)

I restarted my ran chkdsk again! When it was finished, my Compaq load screen would come on, then it would go to the screen where you chose safemode and what have you... so I selected safemode. It shows a scrolling list of random filenames, then restarts the computer and goes back to the safemode selections. No matter what mode I choose, it always does this (except "start normal" does the same thing minus the scrolling list of file names)

So when the compaq load screen pops up before the safemode-selection-screen thing I tried System Restore. Well, that was pretty unsuccessful too.. it loads the system restore then brings me to a blank teal blue screen with an abnormally large c... Read more

Hello!! This seems to be the best place to find out some answers! A few weeks ago, I had a nasty virus on my computer. Luckily I had internet on my phone and was able to look up how to remove the virus and thought the problem was taken care of. Over the last week or so my computer has slowed to turtle speed, when I click on any program to open it, I can walk away and do something else for 10 mins or so as that is how long it takes to open. I have run MalwareBytes as well as my Antivirus program(norton security suite) and they have found nothing. Granted I have only been able to do a quick scan for av, I tried a full scan and it took 6 days to go through 170,000+ files and wasn't even close to done. So I'm not sure if the virus wasn't fully removed, as I thought, or if this is a ripple effect from having a virus.

And now, upon restarting my computer this morning, it told me that it found new hardware, unknown, that needed to be installed. One of my drivers just disappeared it seems. I'm not sure how, why or what caused this but is there a way to fix it?

I have an Eee PC 904HA and when I was done using it, I shut it down normally. 30 minutes later I tried to turn it back on and it prompted me to do chkdsk, so I did because I have never had a problem with it before. It deleted a lot of files, but I thought that was normal. Then, when I try to restart now (in normal mode or in safe mode), I see the windows xp loading screen, then it is blank for a few seconds, then there is a quick blue screen that goes away too fast before I can see the error. I cannot find anywhere in the BIOS that says "automatically restart on error" or something. I do not have an external CD drive and there is no internal CD drive in this machine. I just started using this 2 days ago, and this is very frustrating.

I did not download any new drivers or anything either.

last night i rebooted my pc, which i usually leave on continuously. When it came back on chkdsk came on and recomended that i run it (why? i don't know). Anyway it seemed to make A LOT of changes as far as deleting files, moving files, restoring files, etc. When Windows XP then booted up everything seemed ok. Unfortunately that was not the case. I can not load certain programs now (they hourglass comes on for a few seconds then disappears) When I go to my ISP homepage it says there is a problem between it and my security software which according to them is either Norton or ZoneAlarm. Well I don't even have either of those programs - I just Just AntiVir and Windows firewall. Plus i can surf the internet using IE. Anyway one of the programs I can not load is my Firefox browser. I figured maybe I would just download it again to fix the problem. Unfortunately the download icon on the firefox page doesn't even appear! Also certain links on other pages that show as Javascript do not work. Also an error keeps popping up at random saying that it "can not run the application in this environment" and mentioning something about a MS subsystem and a number 16. Other programs that dont work is my HP digital imaging software and windows help. Is there a way to fix this? is this a registry problem?

Windows 7 Home Premium SP1

Trying to back up C:, D: & System drives using Windows Backup, Acronis, and Macrium all fail after about 65%. Acronis screenshot attached. The other programs don't even give that much info, or I couldn't find logs. How do I turn on deep logging for any of these programs? How can I find out what file occupies the sector identified in the Acronis error?

I ran CHKDSK C: /R /F on bootup and left for work. I come home and the computer's off. I ran it in the evening and it got into Stage 4 of 5 for a long time. It seemed to be stalled at 79% for a long time but then it finally went on to 80% so I figured it was just on some big file. I did something else for about 15 minutes and then looked back and my computer was off again! Backups continue to fail. What causes a CHKDSK to turn off the computer? I'm baffled! I hope I can solve this without staring at CHKDSK for 45 minutes only to find out the info I need just flashes by.

Thank you,

A:What causes a CHKDSK to turn off the computer?

I still don't know what caused the backups to fail, but I figured out what was happening with CHKDSK. Last night I ran it in a DOS window from the System repair disk. It got hung up on different steps but always seemed to keep going eventually. It was stuck at one point for a while and then the screen started flipping out and then it froze. It wouldn't reboot. So I thought I was hosed. But I took it apart and noticed it was really hot. I think it overheated, which would explain all the shutdowns. After a few hours I started it back up and I'm back in business. Now I have to figure out how to get a backup with a disk that has a major problem.

Of course that doesn't answer the question: Why would CHKDSK cause it to overheat just because it got stuck on one sector of the disk? Why didn't it just mark it as bad and move on?

I'm running a 5 year old Dell XPS 7100 with windows 7 home premium.  Have a ATI Radeon HD 5040 SATA 1 TB hard drive that I know has some issues.  Windows is up to date with all systems updates downloaded as necessary.The system was working fine, but the hard drive seemed to spin forever.  Did a Dell Diagnostic scan on the hard drive and the error code 0F00:065D resulted. 
Decided to run chkdsk to see if i could find and fix the error which I think was a huge mistake.  After chkdsk ran for alomst a day and didn't finish, I hard restarted my computer thinking it was stuck.  I now know that doing that (after I subsequently read all the forum posts) was probably a bad thing to do.  When I restarted the computer it went right back to doing a chkdsk and it seems to have frozen again at stage 4 of 5 with no movement at all.
Stupidly, I have not backed up my files on the C drive and need to know what to do next to get back to my desktop and get my computer and files backed up before the drive fails completely, if it's already not too late.
Please help.


A:computer hangs on chkdsk-can't reboot

That code indicates a failing hard drive and yes, doing a chkdsk on it was not a good thing to do. Your best chance now of recovering anything is to remove the drive and put it in an USB enclosure. Attach it to another computer and try to recover your files.
Another way is to download a linux distro like Puppy linux and burn it to a CD or create a bootable USB flash drive with Rufus. Boot to the Puppy desktop. You will see hard drive icons in the lower left of the Puppy desktop. They will be labeled sda ...sdb depending on how many hard drives you have on the computer. They will be labeled sda1...sda2...sda3 depending on the number of partitions on the disk.
Click once on the hard drive icon. If you do not see your Windows files then close on the File Manager and click on another icon. For Windows 7 the windows partition will probably be labeled sda2. Click once on it and a File Manager Window will open. Attach another USB flash or external drive. A USB icon will appear on the desktop. Click once on it and another File Manager will open. You can highlight files/folders on the hard drive by holding Ctrl and left clicking or windowing around the folders/files. Drag the files from the hard drive File Manager to the USB flash or external hard drive File Manager. A small dialog window will open asking if you want to copy or move. Select copy and check the quiet button.
If you cannot copy or see any files then chkdsk may have damaged the file system enough wher... Read more

I've had the same computer for about a year and never did I once run the Disk Check that Vista recommended at startup. Everything worked as smooth as silk. Untill one day I decided to let DiskCheck run while I showered.
Upon returning, I found myself at a blue screen. So I restarted my computer.
It gets to Vista Loading Screen.
It gets to the log in screen.
I can do one of two things... I can type my password and hit log in and let it crash while loading up Vista.
Or I can just wait and it will eventually just crash at the login screen.
This NEVER happened before I let DiskCheck run. Now I can't even access my computer.

If not...

I decided to format and just reinstall Vista. No, better yet, Windows XP!
I didn't delete any partitions yet just incase Vista would still work.
I booted on the XP install disk and it takes me through the license agreement and up to the part where I choose the partition that XP is to be installed. This shows up as...

Unknown Disk
Unknown Disk
Unknown Disk

If I hit up or down or enter I get a blue screen.
Is my computer irreversably destroyed?

When I boot up my computer, it acts normally until after the Windows XP Loading screen. After that, I get a screen with the following message:

Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
The volume is dirty.

Then, CHKDSK performs some operations, and the screen reads:

Checking file system on C:
The type of the file system is NTFS.
The volume is dirty.

CHKDSK is verifying files (stage 1 of 3)...
File verification completed.
CHKDSK is verifying indexes (stage 2 of 3)...
Index verification completed.
CHKDSK is verifying security descriptors (stage 3 of 3)...
Security descriptor verification complete.

After that, I cannot do anything. Buttons on the keyboard do not work, and niether does the mouse. Every time I reboot, it's the same thing.

Okay, so my computer was working fine a few minutes ago, then I turned it off and unplugged all of its peripherals because I had to move it. Then I set it back up and turned it on.
When I booted it up, CHKDSK started to run. I didn't think much of that and let it run. But when it was done, my computer kept rebooting on a loop. Whenever it got past the Windows splash page, it would just black screen and go back to the HP screen where it all began.
This rebooting was probably due to some kind of system failure. So I went into the Advanced Boot Options and tried booting while disabling the automatic restart during a system failure. And I got this blue screen saying that the computer had suffered a fatal system error.
CHKDSK couldn't have done anything to mess up the computer, could it have? Because it was working just fine before I turned it off.
EDIT: The exact text on the blue screen is...
STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of
   0xc000012f (0x00000000 0x00000000)

Right so I ran CHKDSK because of a repair program that meant to help me suggested I did before running it. And now during the process my monitor is apparently not receiving a signal as nothing appears on it and it looks just like it does when my comp is shut down. My comp is still running though... I can still hear it and neat light that can change colors is still on though doesn't mean anything other it is on. I have no idea if my computer is doing anything or not.
I did try to turn my computer off and on again and CHKDSK still decided to run and when it said press any cost before X seconds to cancel it nothing happened when I did and it ran anyways. So I'm on my phone right now and have no idea what to do now. Been spending all day trying to get my comp to connect to the damn internet.
I don't have any CDs or nothing with booting stuff as my comp was custom built as a gaming computer for me about 6 years ago or so. If you all need information about it to help me then I will give it to you. Thanks in advance for the help.

I have attempted to reboot my computer, and It appears something has happened in CHKDSK that has severely messed it up. During chkdsk, things were going well until suddenly my screen became completley flooded with
"Replacing invalid security id with default security id for file XXXXX"

I got up to a hundred thousand when I realized that something was going wrong. As I read up on the internet, I found out that this was an error, and apparently chkdsk has screwed me over. I have requested some sort of hotfix from microsoft, but I'm not sure if that will work at all and apprently it's coming "Within 8 business hours"

Here is the status of my computer:

I log on:
-There is no start bar.
-It takes a while to log on. Screen sits at welcome screen for about 10-20 seconds, then a picture of my desktop background pops up, and only after that has occured for a bit do the icons pop in

-No sound on desktop. Music does not play, and teamspeak says it does not recognize a sound driver

My computer was running very slow (lagging whatever it was doing) all of a sudden last night, and this wouldn't get fixed even after restarting it a few times. So I decided to run a chkdsk /r upon reboot (read online this might help) and I restarted the computer. It started the disk check and I left. When I got back, the computer was off, and now it won't start. Nothing at all starts when I push the on button. I changed the power cable, made sure the computer is getting power, and that's not it. Before I try and check the power supply or open the computer, is there anything that might explain a computer suddenly running very slow, the ''dying'' in the middle of a chkdsk /r? (To specify: It doesn't start at all. The blue ''on / thinking'' light will turn on for a brief moment once after the computer is unplugged and re-plugged, but no fan comes on and there is no noise at all from the computer.) I was thinking this might be a problem with the C drive or the motherboard?

Thanks in advance!

Hello, I'd like to start by saying I ave searched everywhere for a solution to this problem and I've had no luck. I am also quite inexperienced with most of the tools you may ask me to use, such as hijackthis. I've only had a few viruses on this computer during its lifetime and I've always been able to clean them off with malwarebytes or other programs and I even borrow friends' computers and fix them whenever they need. Anyway, I'll get to my problem. My graphics driver sometimes shakes loose inside of my computer, that's no problem except sometimes I have to tighten it back in. Sometimes I will turn on my pc and the screen wont load, telling me it is loose, forcing me to turn off the computer by holding the power button. Well a few days ago I did this, and I pressed "start my computer normally" when the screen appeared, but for some reason, a CHKDSK ran. I didn't have time to stop it and I did not want to turn off my pc while it ran. However, it started saying all kinds of my files were corrupt and it was deleting them and replacing some with defaults. I was like "hmm, ok, it's never done this before, maybe this is a good thing." However, when my desktop came up, the problem it caused was very apparent. There is so much to explain, I will get as much on here as I can.

So, I was playing a game called Battlefield 2, and it was a little laggy, it was pissing me off so I restarted my computer. I don't know if this screwed something up, but instead of re-booting up, my computer told me that a file in the system 32 folder or around there (It's called system, I think) was corrupted or missing.
Whoop dee doo. I've had like this happen way too much, and I'm incredibly tired of re-formating. I do NOT want to re-format and re-install it, PLEASE, GOD, NO!

So, it told me to put in my windows CD and push "R" to repair it. So, I did, but that gives me a nice command line, and I don't exactly know what to do.

I tried restarted, and now without any error it just brings me to the blue windows XP screen before the computer goes to your desktop, but it just stays there without actually..going to my desktop and letting everything function. So, what do I do now? Is there any way to replace this file, or am I gonna have to re-format?

Bear with me, I'm somewhat experienced with computers, but not a ton. I recently rebuilt my computer, due to freezing issues with my last computer, poor & old parts, etc. and even with everything being replaced with the exception of peripherals, I continued to have freezing issues. Wondering if it might have to do with an extremely old keyboard, (PS2), I replaced that, but there continued to be freezing issues, so I attempted to also use a new mouse. During this, I figured it couldn't hurt to check my hard drive as many people recommended, so I ran chkdsk. The first time I ran this, when I checked on it in the morning, it was frozen on a black backlit screen. I hard shut down the computer, and upon restart, it began running chkdsk again. This time, after maybe an hour or two, Windows crashed with the "unexpected error encountered" message and froze on 0% of checking for the error.

When I tried to skip chkdsk, the Automatic Repair came up and would get past the "Diagnosing PC" pinwheel and say that Windows could not be repaired and would I like to system restore? I attempted to system restore, but it then froze on the Windows 8 logo without the pinwheel or anything else occurring.

Currently attempting to run chkdsk a third time, hoping to get past any Windows crashes, but I'm not very hopeful.

I was asked to schedule chkdsk to run on boot up, which i have done. It gets to the point where it say it is finished, but then the computer freezes. I have tried rebooting, but it goes through chkdsk again and the same thing happens.

There is no light on the hard drive, so basically the computer is just sitting doping nothing.

I have tried leaving it overnight to see if it is just slow, but this did not work.

The option to skip at the beginning comes up but the keyboard is locked out.

I tried looking at the registry entry for stopping chkdsk from running as has been shown in this forum, but when i went in the file BootExecute was not there. I put it in as a new entry in the correct folder, but this did not work.

Remove all expansion cards. Disconnect all drives. Basically only have the minimum things connected that are needed for the motherboard to POST: usually motherboard, RAM, and CPU. If the computer won't POST at all when the minimum hardware is connected then try connecting a different power supply. Alternatively, the computer might start POSTing again. If the motherboard doesn't have integrated graphics and it does have a little speaker plugged in to it someplace on the board (usually near the headers for the front panel) then you should hear some POST error beeps that indicate no graphics system was found. If you hear the error beeps then at least you know the motherboard performed a POST which would be better than what you're seeing now. After POST starts working, shutdown the computer, and start reconnecting drives and cards. Try one or two things at first, power on the computer and watch if it POSTS ok again. If the POST doesn't happen then you'll know one of the things you reconnected may be the problem. Notice I stated may be the problem. The piece of hardware might actually be ok but the power supply isn't functioning like it did before the power outage and might have trouble only after adding a certain part. If you figure out what card or drive is causing the computer to not POST I recommend trying the card/drive in a different computer to see if it still c... Read more

Hi all. I posted this under the Windows XP/NT help forum, thinking it was an Operating System problem. But I think its definetly a hardware problem now. I could use some advice. I'm really desperate to get a stable system!

The story:

1) Built a new computer in Oct/Nov 2006. Had been "out of the loop" in terms of computer know how, as the computer I was using at the time was going on about 6 or 7 years old. Originally I had a problem and couldn't get the computer to POST or start up, but it was because I purchased Brand X memory that wasn't "compatible" or recommended with the MOBO (never heard of a situation like this before. Always though Ram was Ram was Ram... learned my lesson.)

2) Computer runs like a dream for about 7 months. It is now around late May/June 2007. I turn the computer on and sit down on the chair and start to get comfortable. To my horror the computer enters this strange "safe mode" blue colored screen and is running some sort of check. It goes by real quick and I don't have time to read it. The computer goes past it and does not load and begins a reboot cycle.

3) Fastfoward a month and three or four full formats of the Hdd and reloads of WinXP. After each load the computer would work for a random amount of time then the same problem would occur. Repairing WinXP did nothing. Eventually I went to format the Hdd again and I started getting me... Read more

Hello! I'm a computer-illiterate student who needs help fixing a PC before the next school week starts.

My computer (Dell, Windows XP) was fine this morning. Then after a reboot, I noticed it was giving me an error message in the bottom right corner of the screen that told me that one of my folders was corrupted (my adobe acrobat reader was corrupted; I tried re-installing it and it still wouldn't run) and that I would need to run chkdsk to fix it.

So I went to schedule chkdsk to run after my next reboot.

After my reboot, chkdsk started to run as usual. After the 1~2 hours it usually takes to finish running, chkdsk said it was done with its scan and would now start Windows. ... but it never started Windows, even after I waited an extra hour.

So chkdsk is stuck in a loop. It won't complete and open Windows when it finishes its check. After rebooting again, it gave me options: run it in the last way that worked or run it in safe mode.

I tried running it with the "last settings that worked" and it just gave me a black screen -- didnt load.

I tried running safe mode and the screen just fills with text as if it's trying to load, but freezes after hitting a certain point.

What can I do? I have some really important files on my hard drive so I hope I can recover from here.


A:computer won't boot windows / stuck in chkdsk

Lets find out what is going on with your hard drive.

first, use Recovery Console to run Chkdsk again:

Set your BIOS and its Boot Order so that booting to CD-Rom is first.
Boot from the XP CD and follow the instructions here:

In Recovery Console:

chkdsk c: /r
fixboot c:

Now set your BIOS Boot Order back to its original state and try and start XP.

Report back, because I think some of the files needed for XP to boot are corrupted.

Basically, I had to shut down my computer yesterday improperly (hitting the power switch on and off) and when I came back to open it later that day, it wouldnt load up properly and instead gave me a message that said:
"Checking file system on C: The type of file system is NTFS. One of your disks needs to be checked for consistency. You may cancel the disk check, but it is strongly recommended that you continue."
(I later find out that this process is called "CHKDSK" if that helps you guys figure out my problem)
So I let my computer do this disk check but 1 hour later nothing is happening and I had to improperly power it off again since it was stuck at this screen. I then open it up again and the same stuff happens so I let it run for 8 hours and it was still was doing its "disk check".
Eventually after powering on and off a couple times, I hit F8 to try to finally properly run my computer as im booting up and I let it run a diagnosis that says it will fix problems with my computer.

Hello, for the past 2 days my computer would run CHKDSK at startup. At first I let it run not knowing what it is (I'm not adept in computers). Apparently it deleted something on the first day. The second day, CHKDSK started up again and it, I believe, deleted some more stuffs.

Now during this second day, my computer started to lag and freezes up despite whatever I was doing: browsing, gaming, even while I was backing up some files. It was to a point where I would need to shutdown my computer or restart it by using the buttons on the machine instead of going to the start menu. I also had a blue screen once saying "KERNAL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR_".

I've tried looking up for solutions. I first assumed I had some virus so I used Microsoft Essentials, AVG, S&D and Ad-Aware. I used AVG in safe mode too. None of them detected anything. I also tried sfc (I attached the log with this post, don't know how to do it in txt sorry). After CHKDSK ran, I tried "fsutil dirty query c" and it says it was not dirty. However my computer lagged and eventually forces me to shut it down.

At the end I stumbled on Startup Repair and just ran that. After over an hour it seems that did the trick and right now my computer seems to run fine, no lag, no freezes, games work too however CHKDSK still runs at startup (which I cancelled because I was afraid it would delete something again and make my comp unusable again).

Yesterday I had a the unfamous 0X745f2780 error and I was able to fix that.Then I scanned my computer with Spybot, Ad-Aware, McAffee and vaccinated with SpywareBlaster. I also intsalled Mozilla Firefox the day before though it didnt seem to cause any problem. Then I decided to defragment and do a chkdsk and fix the errors. The first chskdsk corrected a lot of errors on the C drive then it rebooted and started again so I decided to skip it. Then my computer froze so I resetted it and then let the chkdsk run again 2 times then it rebooted. Since then my computer takes absolutely forever to load but once it's loaded, it seems to work fine except that oddly enough, the windows XP themes have disappeared so I'm stuck with the classic ones and msn seems to be a bit wonky but it make or not be related. The system recovery wasn't activated so I guess I can't use that. The only thing I have is a SpywareBlaster snapshot which I suppose is totally useless in that case.

Any ideas what I could do to fix that?

A:Computer takes a long time to load after chkdsk

Okay, one possible theory is that chkdsk found some bad sectors and you lost some System data. The missing Themes might be corrected by Start>Administrative Tools>Component Services>Services>Themes>Properties and making sure that it is set for "Auto" and the service is Started.

Please report the result of this.

Chkdsk does not "create" problems however it does sometimes cause them to be made "more aggravated". Simply put, you might have to do a Repair Install to fix the problem, unfortunately. Maybe running "sfc /scannow" might do the trick, but lately I'm kind of weak on this option/method and would rather do the more-reliable (but it takes longer) option of the Repair Install.

You should keep running chkdsk, as sometimes HD's that have serious errors continue to degenerate into complete loss of functionality, and by monitoring the HD you can possibly get ahead of the situation and start backing up data inorder to prepare for the permanent loss of the HD. Also, it is a waste of time to attempt to fix a O/S Installation on a HD that is getting ready to die permanently.

Good Luck

Solution update: Sadly, we were not able to find an actual solution to the problem I faced. It took a little while, and there were some complications involved, but eventually the only thing to do was to refresh/reset Windows. If you have a similar issue I'd recommend reading this thread and making sure none of the proposed solutions work for you, and also potentially starting your own ticket first. That being said, resetting Windows has solved the problem I faced, so that might be the solution for you too.
Hello everyone,

I'm posting here because my brother's computer has been having some problems for the past week or so, and I've exhausted all of my knowledge trying to help him. It is a custom built gaming rig that I built, similar to my own rig. At the moment he is running Windows 8.1, with an NVidia GTX970 (MSI Build). If you want the specifics of all of his parts, go to this link: (Intel Core i5-4690K, MSI GeForce GTX 970, Corsair 500R Black - System Build - PCPartPicker). It is the partlist I used to build his computer, and all of his parts are the ones listed there. In terms of software on his computer, since it is a custom built gaming rig there is not much bloatware or other unnecessary software. Steam of course is installed, as are a couple games on Steam. He also uses EVGA Precision X16 to manage fan speed, and Open Hardware Monitor to check computer part health and temps.

Thanks for the detailed description of the problem.
While I read the description I found 2 things, outside of them, the zip file is empty.

Because the EVGA update couldn't be installed properly I think that it could be a huge cause of the problem.
Flash player isn't hardly needed lately, I would uninstall it, same with java.
If you can get into the advanced recovery, try to get the command prompt and type CHKDSK /r, hopefully without a bluescreen. If you have already done this try it again.

My laptop has been running extremely slowly lately. It takes longer than usual to load regular programs and any web browser activity takes ages. I have run malware (Malwarebytes) and virus scans (Microsoft Security Essentials) and removed some items. Malwarebytes didn't detect much, but I found a trojan with Security Essentials. However, after removal my problems persist. I have scanned and attempted recovery of bad sectors. Issues were found and fixed, but a disk check was said to be necessary. I tried running chkdsk c: /F, but the disk check cancelled within a fraction of a second on startup.

Any ideas on what I need to do? I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit on a Lenovo Ideapad Y550.

Hello everybody,

At the beginning of the month, my computer began experiencing what I assumed were random lock ups. I could have the computer on for about 20 minutes or so at a time before the lock ups occurred. The odd thing about these crashes was that they took place one program at a time. First my browser would lock up, but I could still use my taskbar until I tried to use the start menu or open the clock, etc. Then my desktop would lock up if I tried to use any shortcuts. I eventually got frustrated with trying to troubleshoot it and completely reformatted, installing XP from scratch. Everything was perfectly fine up until I installed Diskeeper 2007 and tried to run a defrag on my computer. The lock ups occurred once more. Because Diskeeper also uses its auto-defragger tool, I realized that it was the cause of my lock ups prior to reformatting my drive as well. I tried defragging in safe mode, using a different defragging software, and ran chkdsk. In all cases, my computer froze, with chkdsk consistently locking up on phase 4 at 40%.

I suspect that my hard drives (I have two 150GB WD Raptors in a RAID 0 array) maybe failing, or at least one of them, but it's hard to tell; outside this defragging/chkdsk issue, my computer runs flawlessly, though I have noticed the slightest bit of lag when accessing files and programs lately (which could be attributed to the lack of a defrag). If one of my hard disks was failing, I would expect a much more cumbersome degree of erro... Read more

I'm thinking this should be easy, but it isn't turning out that way.

Computer A is dying, has a current File History. I am setting up Computer B and I want to use File History on B to restore from A. Instead, B can't see A's File History and just insists on creating its own. I don't want it to corrupt the backup on A's history

So the File History of A is on an external drive. I connect the external drive to B and go to File History. B just wants to write a File History of B and can't see the ones created by A.

Help, please!

Or am I just better off copying everything to an external drive and then copying it back to the new laptop?

Is it possible to do it the way i m thinking? or is der any other way to do this??
Your help is appreciated.


A:How to store a computer system image file on another computer

Very easy; I do it myself.

If you don't have a router, use a crossover network cable between the two laptops. If you do have a router, use a wired connection from each to the router. Either way, make sure you share a folder on the destination laptop for the source laptop to stash the image.

I use the free version of Macrium Reflect for my images. You can either connect the laptops and run the image directly, or do what I do and store the image on the source laptop and then manually copy it over to the other laptop.

I have been using 2 monitors for a year or so. One day my second monitor stopped working. When the computer starts or I cycle power to the monitor the screen displays briefly (1-2 seconds) and then goes blank. It shows the desktop correctly (or whatever would be there) but won't stay that way. Each monitor works correctly on it's own and in either port and with either DVI cable.

1. I have switched out all cables.
2. Tried monitor on another computer (works)
3. Unplugged everything and let it sit 20 minutes or so and then plugged it all back in
4. Updated video drivers, including a fresh install of Nvidia control software
5. Adjusted to all available refresh rates and resolutions on both monitors

It could be a hardware problem ie. seized motor in your drive.

Quick way to test this. Insert a a disc in the tray, make a note of any writing or picture you can see on the disc, push the tray in. Wait for a minute or so, then eject the disc. If the picture/writing is in the same position as when you first put it in, then your drive motor is most likely knackered.

If this is the case, only real fix is a new drive.

my sister used to have a dell 4300 dimension and decided to get a new computer, a dell 8300 dimension. she thought she could get me to just pop in the old hard drive (which isn't so old. proabably a few months old) but "suprise" the new computer only accepts hard drives with SATA interfaces and the older hard drive is only an ATA (i am probably saying this all wrong, i am good at tinkering, not with getting names correct).

so i figure why not to a puter->puter file transfer. well, the computers refuse to talk to eachother. i connected them with a cat-5 crossover ethernet cable and when the new puter tries to talk to the old puter, it is like the old puter is giving us the silent treatment. i get a 712 (or was it 721) error and says the old puter is not responding.

i ran the networking wizards to try to put them in the same workgroup and they both say they are, but neither is talking to the other.

oh, and btw, her puter is on a wireless network card which IS talking to my puter. so i can see the new puter fine, but the old puter is off in limbo.

any help which would lead to a successful file transfer (and not to throwing the puters off the balcony) would be greatly appreciated.

oooh, one more thing. for some reason she figured she did not need a floppy drive, plus dell gave her a dvd/cd rom, no burning ability at all. (which was really stupid since now there is no way of writing anything with her computer onto any kind of disc.)

A:computer to computer file transfer problems

When the two machines are connected using the cross over network cable, check that both network cards LED lights light up, as to show there is some kind of connection.

Go to a dos window, type IPCONFIG. Get the IP of the machine, go to the other machine, open a dos window and type PING +the ip number. If you get a ping back, then you have a connection. If you dont, then go into the IP network properties of each machine, and set the SUBNET masks to, then give each PC a fixed IP, eg. 192.168.0,10 &, reboot and try pinging again.

If you are getting pings, in your network settings, make sure you have the 'client for microsoft network installed' & also file sharing, then look at the workgroup names, make sure there the same, and also make sure the PC names are NOT the same.

Once all this is done, share a folder. If you cant find how to share, make sure the file-sharing is installed and enabled.

Then browser the network and transfer your files..

I have a laptop that I use as a sort of 'network server', though its really not.

Hi to everyone who reads this.

When I want do a CHKDSK on C, I get prompt to schedule this task the next time my pc boots, no problems here though.
But after booting up I don't see the CHKDSK-information displayed as it should in normal circumstances. My screen stays black during the CHKDSK Scan, whilst I believe the scan runs as it should be. I derive that thought from the fact that I had a disk surface issue, and after doing the CHKDSK scan the problem was gone.
So the only thing I'm lacking is the information while in progress.

Does anyone have a clue on how to fix that?

Thanks for your time and advice.

Did you change your boot screen by chance? Doing so results in a blank screen while chkdsk runs as boot. The information at the top of the tutorial at this link above can give more details about how you can use the sfc/ scannow command to restore the default boot screen to see chkdsk afterwards.

For now though, the tutorial below can show you how to read the chkdsk log to see what it said.

So here's my situation. When the computer was being started, it would check the files and verify, etc. Last night, for the first time it started "recovering orphaned files". Now my mother simply turned it off and turned it back on while this was going on. When it turned on, it went to just chkdsk and not the recovering of the files. Now my Microsoft Internet Explorer is not working properly when it comes to playing videos or games anything that requires Flash or Java. I thought that it might be as simple as redownloading the Internet Explorer 8 again, but nothing.

I checked the system info and two files are missing and one is damaged for Java in the Internet Explorer file. I tried doing the run>chkdsk/f but it said that the drive cannot be locked and to answer yes or no whether to check the drive on restart. I checked yes, it already completed all of it, and said the volume was clean. I tried to do it again chkdsk/f and it gave me the same thing.

I've sneakily installed a game Rome Total War on my work computer many times, but now this error keeps returning.

I'm trying not to create a duplicate thread however my first attempt at seeking help was immediately shut down by Cookiegal who assumed my work computer was at an establishment which had either a supervisor or IT department that I had not thought to contact first.

I'm including screenshots of my computers basic info, the error message, and the current location of the missing mss32.dll file.

Hello everyone, I have a Dell Optiplex 760 SFF that has both win 7 and win 10 installed on a 1TB hard drive in the following partition order:
500 mb system reserve, 100gb win 7, 750gb data, 80gb win 10
I've also disabled the metro bootloader, as it wastes times when booting to win 7.

Whenever I reboot to Win 7 after booting into Win 10 before, the system requires a chkdsk of the Win 10 and data partition. I looked around the forums here and the win 10 forums, and have disabled fast boot in Win 10 as mentioned throughout, but it still results in chkdsk being required.

I've tried to do this on other computers such as an MSI laptops with Win7, with similar results.

Is there something else I need to do so that Win 7 doesn't do disk check?

Thanks for all the help in advance.

I recently had some major problems with XP. I put in my Installation CD to reinstall Windows XP and chose to "Repair" my current install. The CD successfully repaired, restarted, and then ran a CHKDSK scan to "verify files, indexes, security descriptors," etc. It finished the scan and prompted me with: "Windows has finished checking your disk. Please wait while your computer restarts."

It has been stuck on this screen for the last 2 hours.

Please help. ASAP.

A:Computer freezes after XP Pro "Repair" / CHKDSK verifying

Can you skip the chkdsk? Usually at the start you can opt out. What happens then? Can you start in safe mode w/ command prompt? Perhaps doing a fixmbr and fixboot would help. Repair installs only work about 50% of the time.
Hope you saved any critical data before all of this.

As it says above chkdsk ran and said wait while it restarts, it's been 45 minutes now and getting annoyed.
This all started after I shut down my machine last night and tried to start it this morning.
It hung on the splash screen for over an hr, when I tried to run repair I was unable to system restore as the mouse and keyboard didn't work.
Specs are posted below.

I have not added any hardware or software between it running fine yesterday prior to shut down and starting it .

Another issue is that it will not boot from the dvd it loads the files, does the splash screen then freezes on a black screen.
Also I cannot boot into safe mode, pc restarts every time I press f8.

Can now access safe mode, start up repair etc but, they either hang on a black screen ( start up repair) or BSOD ( safe mode).
This is very annoying as I did nothing other than shut down last night.
Help/advice appreciated.

So I did a disk repair for one of my hard drives (not the system drive ) using check disk because I could not open my folders it would say they were corrupted. This followed me powering off my pc while it was shutting down. So after the chkdisk repair my drive was now functioning ok except for one thing; some of my files and were missing. I could not see any folder even after showing hidden files. I then checked my free space and noticed that it had not changed inspite of the files missing one of which was a folder containing 250GB of data which I cant afford to lose. This has led me to think my data is still on the drive but just hidden somehow. How can I recover this data. Please help

A:missing files after chkdsk repair on windows 8.1

Possibly chkdsk take all the files it could not figure out where they were supposed to go and usually places them in a found.000 folder that is located on the root of your hard drive however this is a hidden file.

In the View tab click Show Hidden Files and usually dir0000.chk etc will appear.

This shows the importance of having a backup of your files.

Hi Everybody,

I have a missing E: drive on my internal backup disk. Here is what I did that may have caused this:

I currently have Win7 with 2 internal HDDs. C: is a 750GB that came with this eMachine (new) and my backup is a WD 500GB. I have been using this setup lightly for several days and everything was working fine. Three weeks ago I had divided the 500GB backup drive into 4 primary partitions (E:, F:, G:,and H) using XP Pro, SP3. I had just the OS and a few startup files on a separate WD-40GB disk.

Then my old motherboard died, so I bought this new eMachine.

I wanted my two startup files from the 40GB drive, so I disconnected my 500GB backup, and connected the 40GB, setting the jumpers to slave. I accessed the files, and moved them to my new C: drive. Fine.

I decided to run chkdsk on the 40GB, and when it asked if I wanted to dismount it to do that, I said yes, knowing that I was going to remove this drive anyway and put the 500GB back in again. After the chkdsk, I did a quick format.

I removed the 40GB disk, and reconnected the 500GB backup disk.

When I rebooted, my first partition in the 500GB disk, E:, is missing, as if the computer still was obeying the "dismount" instruction. I thought the dismount command would go away after connecting a different hard disk and rebooting. I'm thinking that the computer "thinks" that the first (and only) partition in the 40GB drive (E was dismounted, so now the first partition (of 4, E: again) in the 50... Read more

I tried the recommendations for fixing this below:


Follow these steps to grant full permissions to the folder where the files are stored: 1. Right click on the folder on the external drive and click on
properties. 2. On the property window, click Security tab.
3. Now click on Edit and then click Add.
4. Now type everyone in the box and
click OK.

5. Then check Full control check box.

6. Click on Apply and then click OK.
You may also try the below mentioned steps:
1. Click on Start. 2. Go to Control Panel. 3. Select "SOUND". 4. Double click on speakers. 5. Click on advanced tab and then uncheck enable audio enhancements.

But then I received the error message that I don't have rights to edit and add.  Why would this be?  I am the administrator?


A:Windows Media Player cannot access the file. The file might be in use, you might not have access to the computer where the file is stored, or your proxy settings might not be correct.

Please first take ownership of the folder or files, then give yourself full control permission.

Hi, happy holidays for everyone.
This is my first post on this forum.
When I tried to make a backup I've got an error message saying:
Backup failed
0*80070017 cyclic redundancy control failed
I've searched the net for that code and they suggested chkdsk, I've done that
and ran sfc/scannow with elevated privileges. Sfc did correct some problems but there is one problem he could not repair.
I've looked at the log in c:\windows\logs\cbs and searched with the tag [SR] to narrow down, and there was a problem that occured several times.
Windows SIdebar settings.ini is corrupt or missing (64-32bit program files) and when sfc tries to look for backup of the source file it also stated that this one is corrupted.
So I was wondering I've someone knows a method to correct this?
Maybe if there is a way to reinstall the sidebar my problem could be solved (?)
I can't use System restore because I recently deleted those checkpoints, because of an space lack on that partition.
Any help will be much appreciated.

I run into this problem often. When working with Photoshop files (PSD in the most recent case), sometimes when I make a change and then try to save the changes I come up with this error dialog. My work flow is always the same - I am the computer's administrator.

so I won't lose my work. I can save the file using a different name, but then I cannot delete the original file unless I reboot the computer and open it up again. Please explain why this randomly reoccurs.

This issue is a little weired,please take the following steps to have a check .
1.Run "sfc /scannow" to check the health of the system files .
2.Perform a full scan with an antivirus software .
3.Perform a clean boot to verify whether there is a third party conflict here.

Hello everyone,

I have a bat file that is launched when a torrent finishes downloading on my laptop which launched robocopy to copy it to my server computer.

I want to have the server run a few programs to extract the file and move it to the correct directory structure.

I want to launch a bat file on the server from the first bat file using the call command, however I am not sure if this command will cause my server to execute the bat or my laptop to execute the bat.

Is there a way to get my server to run the bat from the bat that is run on my laptop?

I think that if I use the call command that it will run the called bat on my laptop even though the bat is located on my server.

Thanks in advance

A:Starting a bat file on networked computer from local bat file question

Your exactly correct that the batch file will run on your laptop. The only way to run from the server is to use Remote desktop RDP from your machine to the server which will allow you to run the program in the server's memory.
Or, you could have a planned event (Task Manager) on your server which would check to see if the file exists at some point in time and then run the batch program in the servers memory space.

-Checked the CD in another computer (It worked)
-updated the bios through the IBM website
-ran diagnostics with PC Doctor for windows. This told me there is no CD rom installed or driver is missing.
It mentioned driver MSCDEX. I tried to find this driver online and through IBM with no luck.
-I tried to update the firmware but could not get the firmware to install.
-I tried to fix the registry using some of the steps I found on this site but that didn't work.

It's been quite a few months since I've posted a computer problem (that's a good sign).

Okay, so my problem is exactly what the title is. The My Computer system folder is missing. Sorta. When you open My Computer, you just see a blank area. No hard drives, removable media, or CD drives are shown.

Though when I open My Computer through Explorer (i.e. the Windows+E keyboard shortcut), I get this:

From my perspective, I think that this is either a registry issue or a Windows thing. If the only solution is to reinstall XP, then nevermind (I can live with this problem).

BTW, I added the visual theme and Vista icons after this happened.

Try this: Click Start > Run - type sfc /scannow (note the space between sfc and /) in the "box" and click OK.
This procedure will scan/repair the system files. You will most likely have to insert the XP CD.

I have two printers, one of which is an Epson Artisan 1430 (very new, installed with current drivers and current firmware) and one of which is a Canon iP6000D (very old, with old, unsupported drivers), and both of them frequently will not actually print anything unless I turn the printer off and back on first. The system thinks the doc went to the printer, but it's landing in the bitbucket instead. This behavior began several months ago, and was not present for at least the first several months after the 10 upgrade.

In both cases, when the symptom crops up, the system and printers may have been on continuously with no sleep, power-off or other reboot (that I know about) for as little as 4 hours since the last doc printed, or as much as several days. If the system has rebooted, the problem becomes *slightly* more likely but not certain. When it happens, usually both printers are impacted. (I have not consistently tested it, but so far it appears that when one needs a power-off/on cycle, the other will as well.) When the problem is present, a document sent to the printer pops up in the queue list barely long enough to read the job description, and then it's *gone*; the system apparently thinks it went to the printer successfully, as no error message is presented.

So far, I have found precisely zero mention of anything relevant to this problem anywhere. I've got the hyperannoying (and incredibly TJFS) "automatic printer mismanagement" feature turned off, and... Read more

I have also unpluged and plug the dvd/cd-rom drive from the motherboard but i am unable to find solution to the problem.

Additionally, i have also perfumed sfc /scannow and registry fix along with running windows repair consul but I am unable to find the solution.

I have also used the dell hardware diagnostic utility and its shows that the driver is working fine but its just the windows which is not recognising the problem.

So far I have attempted a repair installation, but after the "To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER." screen the R option does not appear.
I have tried to run "bootcfg /rebuild" from the Recovery Console, but I get a "Failed to successfully scan disks" message.

If it is a Dell then the 45Mb partition is the Diagnostic partition.
If it is a Dell, when You turn it on and the Dell Logo appears, Press F12 for the Boot Device menu and select the Diagnostic partition and run the diagnostics. At a Minimum I suggest the Memory, Hard drive tests. You could also run the Motherboard test if desired.
Not to mention that the latest XP service pack is SP3.
Once You are sure the Memory and Hard Drive are OK, Then presuming enough free drive space You could always install a second copy of Windows. For example You could install it to C:\Doors or C:\Window2.
That is only if You do not care if You get the old windows running again.
Test first. If it isn't a Dell let me know and I can suggest other Drive and memory testing software.

Hey guys,

Having some issues with my HTPC. About a month ago I noticed it was off (I normally leave it running), and it refused to turn back on. I poked and fiddled with it for a while, and since I was planning on upgrading it soon anyway, I ordered some new parts, thinking that the motherboard had maybe fried (it's a few years old).

Original ("O") rig:
Asus A8N-SLI mobo
8600 GT graphics card
Unknown AMD CPU (got it from my roommate)
Antec 500W PSU

New ("N") rig:
Foxconn A7GM-S mobo
Integrated graphics
Athlon X2 4850e 2.5 ghz CPU
Crucial DDR2 2x2GB PC6400 800MHz memory

The hard drives are a 250gb IDE main drive, and a 500 gb SATA drive.

So, here's the problem and the various solutions I have tried.

At first, I thought it was the motherboard as I wrote above. It turns out that the power supply was probably to blame - I can't get power through it any more (stupid of me not to check this first). So I ordered a new Sea Sonic 300W High-efficiency PSU and I also have an old stock power supply I can test with as well.
Both builds using the new and stock PSU clearly have power - LEDs go on on the ASUS and my wireless mouse receiver's lights go on for both. But when I click the power switch, absolutely nothing happens, regardless of which power supply I use and which board I use. No fans turn, no noises, nothing. It's driving me mad.

- Unplu... Read more
