Press " Advanced options" to try other options to repair your PC or "Shut down" to turn off your PC.

and i got a dvd contain install of windows 10 ( ISO file ) and able to run it on my pc

A: Automatic repair couldnt repair your PC (Repair screen win10)

You might be better off doing a clean install. You won't need to enter the key as its already been associated with your computer.

Backup any files you want to keep first.

I am not certain but it may take the install files from the recovery partition (perhaps someone can confirm this), I know this worked with a recent HP job I did.

Hello,Thank you for posting in the HP Support Forum. Welcome! I am sorry for the issue you experience. It seems to me that your HDD is failing - in this case you need to purchase new HDD or better SSD and replace the faulty component.  ** If your computer is still under active warranty period - you need to contact HP support for assistance and free replacement.>> http://www8.hp.com/us/en/contact-hp/ww-contact-us.html   ** If your computer is not under active warranty period - you need to purchase it on your own. You can buy one from big tech stores in your area or online (2.5 inch SATA HDD) . However, I'd recommend you get SSD instead of HDD as they are more reliable, a lot faster and way better compared to old-fashioned HDD. More reasons you can find here >>http://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch001396.htmSSD vendors/brands I'd recommend - Samsung, Intel, Toshiba... Here is how to replace the faulty HDD with new HDD or SSD >> https://de.ifixit.com/Guide/Compaq+Presario+CQ58+HDD+Replacement/28934  Once you replace the faulty component, you will need to install fresh copy of the desired operating system.  Usually the computer comes with Windows preinstalled by HP (OEM Windows).  If you have previously created recovery media, you can use them to install back Windows and restore to factory default condition. If you do not have recovery media, you can such from HP (about 30 U...

I have two Windows 10 installations on my PC. Primary and temp.
The primary installation cannot boot with error "The boot configuration data file is missing some required information ".

This happened aftter I wiped out another third disk which was the PC's original disk and apparently kept some boot info.

I have a USB boot disk but that does not see my Primary Windows 10 installation because the drive is running a 950 pro m.2 ssd which there is no drivers for when booted in the USB.

So there is no way that I know of, to use the USB and run a boot repair option on Primary installation.

The other Temp installation can boot into windows 10 and it does see my Primary installation's partition ... but how do I repair Primary while booted in Temp ?

It is a UEFI pc.

A:How to repair a win10 ssd install with no driver for usb repair ?

From an elevated ("run as administrator") command prompt type:

bcdboot D:\Windows

The drive letter in red will be the drive letter to your primary Windows 10 assigned by the temp Windows 10.

Then run msconfig, select the boot tab, and adjust the time delay to make your selection and the Windows 10 that you want as default.

You can also install and run EasyBCD to edit your boot menu to change the names of the Windows entries on the boot menu to whatever you want.

I just bought a new Envy m7 n011dx with Windows 8.1 loaded on it from image, for my church. After I entered my information the first thing it did was ask me to install Win10, which I wanted. But it keeps choking on the video drivers, and I can't stop MS from updating them, and I can't be certain what is happening. HP Assistent is giving me one version automatically, MS is giving me another version, automatically, and NVidia Experiance is giving me something else automatically, and I am happily trying to force the drivers I got from NVidia that are the most current of all. If I remove the Intel and Nvidia drivers in Device Manager I can get it to boot into Windows, but then all the stupid auto vid updaters start cranking and I need to reboot to finish their install -- Automatic Repair comes up and doesn't repair anything. The only thing I can do is Safe mode and remove the Intel and Nvidia drivers, which starts the cycle over.  I feel I am missing a step here, and neither HP, NVidia, Intel, nor Microsoft are telling me that I can't have Windows 10 with these hardware pieces.

Hello,

I've been unable to access my custom build computer since around 5:00 yesterday. I chose to restart my computer at around that time just because it was slowing up a little and I usually do that to help, I had not installed any updates or new programs since 2 days ago when there had been a few windows updates.

Upon returning to my computer I noticed that it had been unable to startup and had gone straight into system repair with it being 'unable to repair this computer automatically.' I rebooted several times and noticed that it was not a visible BSOD but as soon as the 'starting windows' icon began to appear it went straight into startup repair. I tried to boot into safe mode, tried to load previous good configuration and all of the other advanced recovery options (including system restore/image and many command prompts).

This is what it shows after being unable to repair automatically:

Problem signature name:Startup repair offline
Problem signature 1: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 2: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 3: unknown

Problem signature 5: Autofailover
Problem signature 6: 11
Problem signature 7: Corrupt file
(then my O.S. version)
Locale ID: 1033

This diagnostic occurs every single time I run the startup repair. Also, command prompts I have tried using the WindowsRE command prompt and the one found on the 'repair your PC' option on the windows 7 installation disk are:

-All bootrec.exe ( /fixmbr /rebu... Read more

After suffering this problem, I have made some progress. By accessing Notepad via the Command Prompt in Recovery Options, I could access my hard-drive. Though now, about eighty percent of it has been wiped -- most files are gone, including all non-initial installation applications. Some personal files remained, that I managed to get off on a USB (all through the Open/Save function of Notepad).

Running CHKDSK, it froze once. Trying again, it repaired some bad areas.

When trying to Refresh my PC the message I get is:

There was a problem with refreshing your PC. No changes were made.

When trying to Restore my PC the message I get is:

This is very strange, as Reset had a different message not long ago -- regarding hard drive partitions.


What is more important to me is seeing if I can recover files and recover my Windows 8 product key. I have my installation disc, but I cannot find the code.

Any help would be most appreciated, comrades.

I have a Dell Inspiron laptop with Windows 8, and whenever it attempts to update, it freezes around 15% then resets to display "Failure Configuring Windows 8 Updates." Last night, this happened for the third time this week, and after about four hours of this screen I hard reset it. It continued to revert back to that message every time I hard reset it until I tried the F8 key upon booting, but the first time I did that, none of the options worked, so I shut down and restarted again. Now whenever it boots it shows "Preparing Automatic Repair" followed by "Automatic Repair couldn't repair your PC." In the Advanced Settings I have tried System Refresh, System Restore, Automatic Repair, and all of the Startup Settings, but none of these have worked as it's still stuck in the Automatic Repair loop. What can I do to get it to boot normally?!?!? I've been searching forums and videos all morning, but nothing i've learned has worked. I also don't have a Windows 8 installation disk, and I really don't want to reset the system, wiping all of my files. Please help, I'm currently typing this from a family desktop computer, but I really need my laptop in normal working order ASAP. What should I do? Thankyou.

You could try going into safe mode, hit F8 during boot up.  Not real sure but I would then go to windows update, it may see the bad load.  It is worth a try!

A few weeks ago, my computer broke and I was going to have it get fixed, but the repairman never came. Something happened when I was not at my computer that caused it to crash and shut down. When I got home, I went to my computer and saw it was off. I turned it on and immediately windows launched into startup repair. It started automatically repairing so I let it go through. After it finished, there was a black screen. I let the black screen sit there for a while but it stayed a black screen. I turned it off and tried again, but it produced the same result every time.

How do I fix this? I have no specs to provide because I did not record any down when I had the computer. I wish not to reinstall windows and lose all my files. I also do not have a windows installation disc.

I was trying to play a game the other day after not playing for a long time. I hadn't restarted the computer in days. The game wasn't loading properly so someone suggested restarting the computer. I decided to restart my PC. Waiting for it to restart i was met with a Windows failed to start or something like that. I clicked advanced options i first clicked System Restore and of course all the restore points i set every month were somehow gone. Because i waited and waited and waited and suddenly it told me there was no restore points found. I then tried opening up the command prompt and switching to the D: drive because for some reason my HDD becomes D in the automatic repair. But anyways i punched in chkdsk /f. I was surprised at how much it found. I then thought it might actually start now! I restart. It doesn't work. I turned off the computer last night and haven't touched it since. Any help would be appreciated!

P.S. I also tried Resetting. That failed too.

A:Computer goes right to Automatic Repair after BIOS screen. Cannot fix.

Suggest you boot from your Windows DVD or recovery USB and check the presence & integrity of the partitions on your system drive. It's possible you may have a bad drive or maybe the power or SATA connections are disconnected. Also go into the BIOS at boot to check the drives are being detected correctly.

Hi,
A day ago, my Windows 8 Toshiba computer started making a really loud whirring sound, so I manually rebooted my computer pressing the button, and turned it on, but it still made the sound...after many tries, I finally got it to turn on without any sound, but a few hours later, it started making the whirring noise again, so I rebooted it...this continued for the whole day...overall, I probably manually rebooted the thing over 20 times or so.
Last night, however, I manually shut my computer down once again, but when I turned it back on, it was going to automatically repair my computer, but it started making a loud whirring sound again, so despite it being in the middle of the repair, I manually shut it down.
Afterwards, I turned it back on and on the TOSHIBA start loading screen, at the bottom it said loading Automatic Repair...but then before it can start the Automatic Repair, it goes to the blue error page, but after a second, while the error info blue screen is at 0%, my computer automatically shuts down and restarted itself to the TOSHIBA start loading screen with the Automatic Repair "loading" at the bottom, and then back to the blue error information sending screen before shutting down less than a second later, before the computer can send any error info (while it's at 0%)...this is an endless cycle....
I don't know what to do? Please help!

Hi, The 24 character error code is a failure of the short Disk Self Test ( DST ) and would indicate that the Hard Drive is failing and needs to be replaced.  This is also consistent with the boot issues you describe. If your notebook is still under warranty, contact HP and arrange to have the drive replaced - If needed, you can check your warranty status Here. You can contact HP starting on the link below. http://welcome.hp.com/country/w1/en/contact_us.html If you are out of warranty and would like a guide on replacing the Hard Drive yourself, please let me know - include the full Model No. and Product No. of your dv6 series notebook - see Here for a further explanation. Regards, DP-K

So recently my PC wouldn't boot into my hard drive and I didn't have a USB lying around so I can clean install it, it was hanging and freezing at the bios loading screen and everything. I finally was able to boot into System Recovery using F11 and it started to do the automatically repairing your pc, then it was in an infinite loop of a screen where it basically says my BIOS, the version, then checking memory, then CPU. It was an infinite loop like I said and now whenever I boot my PC up it's stuck on that screen, it freezes right on the spot where it was checking what processor I have. I will post my specs considering it's a big help for troubleshooting - not a fan of opening my PC and removing things.
- Specs -
OS - Windows 8.1 PRO
MEMORY - 4GB
BIOS - Phoenix AwardBios v6.00 (2008, yeah it's quite old.)
CPU - AMD Athlon x64 +4800 Series (2 cores, 2.50)
HDD - Maxtor 350GB I believe, don't know the exact model.
---
I decided to look around on the internet but 90% it's people saying your computer fried and random bull, anyway thanks, hope I can fix this issue soon.. sucks too because I just bought WoW.
I don't care if all the information on the HDD gets wiped I just want my computer to be working again.
Cheers.

A:[Help] Stuck on Windows 8.1 Automatic Repair Loop Screen

To me it sounds like you have a hardware issue or a BIOS issue. Can you get into your BIOS by pressing F2, Del, F9, F10, or F11? (Not sure what it would be for you. It varies between BIOS manufacturers and models). Im going to lean towards hardware and say its a RAM issue. Probably a bad DIMM. If you have access to another computer, download MemTest86 and burn that to a disk and boot from it and let it test your RAM to see if it errors out at all.

Hi,

I have a Satellite Pro C850-1FN and for some reason it gets stuck in a Preparing automatic repair screen on bootup. It will sit with the text on the screen and then after about 8 minutes a blue screen will show talking about a problem and then the PC re-boots.

The cycle is then continued.

Any ideas greatly appreciated.

A:Satellite Pro C850-1FN stucks in Preparing Automatic Repair screen

Hi

It looks like the automatic repair isn?t possible.
Did you try another option ? HDD recovery?

The HDD recovery procedure would start new system as well as driver installation and would set the notebook back to factory settings.

I think if system repair isn?t possible, your next step should be the HDD recovery.
In case the HDD recovery would not work too, then you should use the Recovery disk.

Hi, I cannot start my Windows 7 at all. With power on, the system tries to load up but: ' windows failed to start.A recent hardware or software change might be the cause'. Trying to open safe mode or last good configuration doesn't work, it goes automatically to startup repair but after about an hour trying it says ' Windows 7 Startup Repair Cannot Repair This Computer ' (tried a few times). After another reboot with a windows 7 repair disk in the drive I managed to open the recovery manager from the DVD instead of the HDD and tried all the options - system recovery does not work, i have no previous images of the system, I ran a scan on the memory - it was all clear but still windows not starting. Then I did CHKDSK and it froze at 11% on stage 4 of 5, that happened a couple of times so I decided to run an sfc scannow but another error: 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation'.

Firstly, thanks for reading.

My PC runs Windows 7 x64. I built it myself about a year ago for gaming.

Occasionally running games I would BSOD and it would suck. I'd update all my drivers or try some game-specific fix and usually if I didn't fix it, I would just start playing something else until I remembered it and by then, some Windows update or my own tweaking or just divine providence would have stopped the bluescreens. A few games, like GTA IV, Bioshock Infinite and Spec Ops: The Line remain unplayable for me, as they constantly bluescreen no matter my alterations or updates, but that's another story.

My problem is with Startup Repair. I was playing Max Payne 3 last night, all was well, then BSOD. To note, I never actually see the blue screen, the video cuts and the audio stutters for a moment, then the computer restarts. But in the .dmp files they're always reported as BSODs. Anyway, I restart and do some other stuff, then turn it off for the night. Today, I turn the PC on, and it prompts me to Start Windows Normally or launch Startup Repair. I chose to repair, thinking it was probably time I let Windows have a shot at it for once.

Well, I'm sitting a feet away and watching the screen right now, and it's going through the third consecutive automatic repair. In the past few hours I've run memory diagnostic, gone through the Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery thread with the MD mybackup stuff, attempted chkdsk (can't due to a lack of write privileges, even...

My problem started last night as I was trying to boot in safe mode with networking to install and update malwarebytes to get rid of a spyware problem. I was unable to start my computer with safemode using f8, so I used the misconfig boot.ini method and selected safeboot with networking. Then I was able to get to the boot sequence menu, but whichever option I picked (safe mode, normal, last working configuration, etc), the computer just restarts.

Then I tried to repair windows with the xp cd and it completed at 100% and needed to "restart to finish the setup process." However, right now whenever it restarts, it will automatically go into safe mode, and I would get an alert saying "'win xp setup cannot run under safemode. Setup will restart now." I have tried pressing okay, x-ing it out and a manual shutdown. But whatever I do, the same cycle will happen over and over again .

I later found out about the f5 key and tried using that to boot normally, but it still goes into safe mode. My question is.. is there a way to override the msconfig settings so that my computer can boot normally and finish the setup process, OR to get the setup NOT to finish so that I can change the msconfig settings back to original.

I would really like to backup my files before doing a reformat. Any help is greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance
 

A:Cannot access windows after win repair -- safe mode & repair setup conflicts

First of all you could use any Linux Live-cd program to make a bootable cd from a downloaded iso file and then boot to Linux and then copy and paste whatever files you need to a usb flash drive or external hard drive.
What I would suggest first though is boot to first "r" for Recovery Console and run "chkdsk /r" to repair the hard drive.

- The only opton is cancel...

If I cancel it keeps coming up...

If I let it run through it says

*"Error 1706 no valid source could be found for product Roxio Easy media creator 7 basic DVD edition windows cannot continue"

then goes back to the first message and tries again...
Roxio 7 still works perfectly fine when I open it from desktop or start!
however whenever I open a browser, or try and rename a folder or save something it comes up with the error mentioned earlier...
it just keeps doing this and stops me continuing my work...

I have lost my Roxio 7 cd so I can't install the disk to fix this problem...

I found however my Roxio 6 disk so I tried just removing Roxio 7 using add remove programs... but this just brings up the same error... and wont uninstall...

does anyone know how to stop this message coming up?
(note roxio works fine I just want to stop the error message- but failing that does anyone know how to get rid of the program altogether)

thanks for your time

Install and run it, look for an entry similar to "WordPerfect". Delete the entry and all should be fine.

Hello, what is the repair cost
for repairing a CPU socket on a Sandy Bridge motherboard?
Sadly i didnt know my motherboard had a damaged CPU socket until the reseller told me and therefore they also refused a refund wich also was the reason i sent it back to them in the first place, same day as i recieved it, when i later on read on hardware forums that intel recalled all Sandy Bridge motherboards.


Sadly these kinds of damages is not covered by the warranty, and I have also been told that
i wont get a refund, and its my word against their and really I dont see how I could have damaged the CPU socket when i didnt even had ordered a CPU yet.

But, not much to do against a big company and therefore i would like to know what the cost is to repair a CPU socket on a motherboard. I have read on some other forums like xtremesystems that moderators there telling that its about a 25 $ cost on repairing or replacing the motherboard CPU socket, and I would like anyone here to confirm this for me, or what other kind of prices there is for repairs that is not covered by the warranty, and sadly my reseller didnt accept the motherboard and told me i damaged it, which i didnt but i cant proof that they are lying so.

Is it true that there is about a 25 $ cost for repairing or replacing a CPU socket on a motherboard, and if not what is the cost?

I have a Packard Bell easynote (TM98-GN-030UK), and have had it since Christmas.

On Wednesday, it failed to startup, flashing a quick blue screen and then immediately rebooting. Therefore I cannot get information from the blue screen.
The startup repair option goes to a default blue screen with green nature-y bits. It loads no options, even if I leave it for an hour.

I have tried the system repair disk. It goes to the same background, asks for my language/keyboard settings, and then when I click 'next' again does nothing.

So, I cannot access any kind of repair or restore options as neither does anything beyond show me the default background.

Hi all - my laptop refuses to boot and when I start in repair mode I get the BSOD with just the cursor visible and nothing happens.

If I reboot in safe mode then it hangs at windows\system\drivers\bootdefragdriver.sys

I have researched and believe this driver is linked to Glarys Utilities, but am obviously unable to uninstall the program or driver because I can't boot into Windows.

I therefore downloaded an ISO file and created a USB boot disk (as per one of your tutorials) with the intention of rebooting into repair mode, but when I boot from the USB and press F8, there is no repair mode option. All it does it try to reinstall windows from scratch, which I am reluctant to do.

Does anybody have any suggestions of how I can either delete the bad driver (if that is indeed the problem) or how I can still get into repair mode from the USB drive?

Many thanks

A:BSOD upon repair mode, UBS boot disk created but no repair option

I think if you don't want to reinstall then you could try booting the laptop with a Linux live cd/usb and renaming/deleting bootdefragdriver.sys and seeing if that helps

My computer was built by me and has been fine up until a few days ago after I removed some USB cables for devices that I then hooked up to another PC I have and reconfigured some USB devices as a powered hub I was using would not let them be recognized by Windows. When I opened the Attached Devices window to see if my devices were now recognized it took forever to open with the blue bar at the top never getting to the end. I Googled the problem and found that Bluetooth was may be causing the issues and to disable it. That didn't fix the issue so I tried other recommended fixes such as disabling printspool -- none worked.
I then started having the Cannot Boot problems so I let Windows try and fix it which it could not. I tried to let it restore from a previous good point but that failed and I would click Send Report and then it would shut down. This kept happening for several days until I came across the aforementioned thread here on the forum.

Hello. My friend recently encountered the error "Disk read error occurred."

It seems to be because her MBR is damaged, according to other forums I've read, and a partition recovery program that listed her MBR partition as damaged.

When I plug in her drive, the partition that holds her Windows 7-64 OS is absent(the computer hers interacts with is also Win7-64)

Her recovery partition on that drive seems fine, however. Is there any way I can copy that partition from her drive over to a blank drive that I have, and use that to repair her other drive? Or is there a way to recover her damaged drive? I'm not too good with this kind of thing.

If anyone knows the best solution for fixing this without having to wipe the inaccessible main partition, that would help a ton.

Hello, I recently got hit by an aggressive trojan that started with disabling my sound, and crippling my internet connection to finally causing my windows XP to stop booting correctly. It would just freeze moments after the desktop loaded, becoming completely unresponsive.

I tried to do an OS repair but that too failed. Repair was unusually slow then ground to a halt at the 29 minute mark (Performing Configuration Stage) with some sort of +COM failure (sorry forgot to write down the exact details). Repair setup is not able to go beyond that point, so I restart the process. Same thing happens, repair gets stuck at the same point, and now I can't boot up XP at all because it goes straight into repair.

Is there anything I can do to save this installation? A reformat and reconfiguration of my PC takes days to do and I'm short on time.

A:XP repair has failed and computer is stuck in a reboot-repair loop

I doubt there is anything you can do at this point to avoid a full wipe and reinstall. You can run off a live linux version if you need to get work done before you get around to actually reinstalling XP and configuring your computer, but your XP applications will obviously not run in such a setup.

Hi,

I am unable to start up my laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium). TOSHIBA Satellite C660-1J6
It is stuck in a loop of 'attempting to repair this computer', which is unsuccessful and restarts.
There are no restore points to use.
I have received the BSOD which disappears quickly during startup.
I am able to start up in Safe Mode - however when I get to the login screen, the mouse and keyboard do not work.

I would highly appreciate any help or advice with this.
I am happy to reinstall windows as I have everything backed up. However I am unsure how to do so as I do not have a CD.

Kind regards

A:Startup Repair- windows cannot repair; Stuck in restart loop

Firstly, a Windows 7 install disc is a dvd, not a cd.

You would have to find a working PC to download a Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 Iso File, either 32 or 64 bit, let`s assume you need 64 Bit.

After you have downloaded the iso file you have to burn it to a dvd at no faster then x4 speed. So the PC has to have a dvd burner and you`s need a blank dvd.

Everything you need is in the following links.

https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/techno...-download-tool

Free ISO Burner

Clean Install Windows 7

You can also use a usb stick to put the iso file on using Rufus. The usb stick must be at least 4 GB in size.

https://rufus.akeo.ie/

You must also have a readable key on your COA to activate windows after you install it.

You will also have to install at least your network/ethernet drivers to get online. Then get your other drivers, and run Windows Update, which will take a long time, sometimes 24 hours.

Hi and welcome to TSF this is about your error code
Bug Check 0x74: BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO
The BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO bug check has a value of 0x00000074. This bug check indicates that there is an error in the registry.

Parameters
The following parameters appear on the blue screen.

Parameter Description
1 Reserved
2 Reserved
3 Reserved
4 The NT status code (if it is available)


Cause
The BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO bug check occurs if the SYSTEM hive is corrupt. However, this corruption is unlikely, because the boot loader, known as NT Loader (NTLDR) in versions of Windows prior to Vista, checks a hive for corruption when it loads the hive.

This bug check can also occur if some critical registry keys and values are missing. Thee keys and values might be missing if a user manually edited the registry.

Resolving the Problem
Try restarting the computer by selecting "last known good configuration" in the boot options.

If the restart does not fix the problem, the registry damage is too extensive. You must reinstall the OS or use the Emergency Repair Disk (ERD) that you previously created by using the Windows Backup tool.

Hi,
 
My system recently got infected with a virus and i cleaned it using my antivirus software but my command prompt is acting weird.
 
Example:
 
I open command prompt and it gets directed to my "c:\documents and settings\admin\> ping 17.120.0.1" when i ping my router from here its able to ping no problem.
 
Now i type in 
 
"c:\documents and settings\admin\>cd c:\
 c:\>ping 17.120.0.1
 c:\>ping 17.120.0.27
 c:\>
 c:\>cls"
 
It automatically pings another ip and clears it repeatedly
 
What should i do and how to replace/repair command prompt without running a OS repair.

Hi All,

Looking for some advice. I had a sudden BSOD earlier and upon restarting my PC it came up with Startup Repair, only to have it fail to repair the issue. I have been following this thread which seems to have stemmed from the same issue. I too am running Avast, so I suspect that may be the problem.

I have been following the steps in that thread and have reached the point of removing Avast keys in Regedit. I previously ran checks and also attempted to repair from the Win7 OS CD as was suggested in that thread.

I think that following the steps to remove Avast files may be the solution to my issue - however, as I am aware that Regedit can be dangerous to mess around with I wanted to check in and make sure I am following the steps correctly.

System info: Self-built PC, running Windows 7 on a Crucial M4 SSD, with two WD Caviar Black HDDs as storage drives.
CPU: Intel i5-2500k (not OCd)
GPU: EVGA nVidia 970 FTW
RAM: 4x4GB

It appears to have re-mapped my drives, my SSD is C: normally while my HDDs are E: and F:, but the system is currently reading C: as the Windows reserved partition of the SSD, the rest of that drive as F:, and the HDDs as D: and E: instead. This is in line with the user (Lethorio) in the earlier thread, however.

So, where I'm at now. I am around posts #65-70 in that same thread and have found avast keys. Here are the keys in the first folder which appeared in the search results:

All of a sudden, my computer crashes every time when starting up the computer. When it gets to the "Windows" screen with the small moving dots that form the windows logo, it crashes just as they start their animation.

I've tried using Startup Repair, as well as command line repair (possibly the same thing?), but they are telling me that they aren't finding anything wrong. Also reverting to a previous state results in an error and I can't do a system restore because I have no system restore points. I was able to backup all of my most important files, thanks to that excellent guide on here which tells you how to use the "load driver" window to do it. So, I'm confident that my hard-drive is still mostly functional, since searching through it went fine, with no corrupt files or anything noticed. At first I thought the problem was something other than my hard-drive/installation, so I put my hard-drive into another computer (which was working fine) and experienced the same problem.

I read about the "repair install" option and got really excited that this might fix my problem. However, I read that you can only do it while logged in (which, again, I cannot do) and this was confirmed when I tried to do it anyway. This sounds like the perfect option for me, but I can't get the computer to let me log in, whether in safe mode or not.

Does anyone have any other ideas about what I can do? I'd really like to avoid doing a fresh install of Windows 7, if at al... Read more

  Hi, just recently I installed Kaspersky total security 2016 anti-virus software, the following day I was unable to bootup.
I could only get has far has ' startup repair , after a short scan I received the error message, ' startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically '
And gave me two options, - send information about this problem ( recommended )  & don't send, but I was unable to select ( mouse did not function )
So I realised that I needed to erase my ' c ' drive and reinstall windows7 , fortunately I have backup.
But the problem is, I don't know how to access 'c ' drive to erase and reinstall win7

So ( not being very technical ) I contacted Kaspersky technical support, for assistance.
They emailed me the download for their rescue disc, and instructions of how to run the disc, so I copied it to disc and usb stick.
Using the rescue disk, I am able to copy my backup files on 'c '  
But I cannot see an option with the rescue disc for wiping the ' c ' drive clean and reinstalling win7?
Have since asked Kaspersky support, replied but not answered.
Can anyone assist please

Fooling around on my laptop ( Acer Aspire 5920 ) last night, set it down for a few minutes while I went to the kitchen and came back to it frozen.

Had to force it to reboot by holding the power button, and when it rebooted it took me to the 'Startup Repair' screen, and then tells me after a few minutes of looking busy that 'Windows Cannot Repair this computer automatically.' I've made 17 repair attempts so far. Apparently my last successful boot time was in 2008.. which is a lie, aha.

I would very much like to save a few files from the computer if it's going to need a complete format, there's a good couple of years worth of writing and artwork that I'd be heartbroken to lose.

Any help is greatly, greatly appreciated.

Hey Guys,

Background - I have a second hand Dell Desktop running Windows 7 34bit (i think)
Around May 2015 my computer almost died, but was saved by using a windows 7 repair disc i bought from Amazon and some help from one of the guys on here (thank you)
I've since lost this disc and my computer seems to have died again. So i purchased it again from same supplier.
It was a friend of mine who used the disc last time so ive had to google how to do it but it doesnt seem to be happening.

Switching my computer on a couple weeks ago i was met with black screen and this:

File: \windows\system32\config\system

Status 0xc00000e9

Info Windows failed to load as system registry file is missing or corrupt

It wont work in safe mode or last good configuration

So ive went into BIOS and changed the boot order so the Disc Drive is no 1.

Restarted Computer - nothing came up saying press any key to boot from disc (ive read that in few forums that should be what comes up) and it just goes back to black screen

So only option i have seems to be f12 Boot device menu where i select Onboard or USB CD-ROM drive and disc makes some noises before :

Selected boot device not available strike f1 to retry boot , f2 for set up utility

I'm trying to fix my brother's friend's laptop - my suspicion is he dropped it - the hard disc is almost certainly where the problem is.

That said, I hooked it up to my desktop and it's "usable" in the sense that I can access the repair tools via my W7 OEM disc to try and run utilities on it. The problem is that I'm probably going to be stuck running CHKDSK, and I don't want to tie my main desktop up to do this.

Now, the irregularity is that it took about 40 minutes to finally load through the dialogs and get a CMD open. After which, it took about 5 minutes for CHKDSK to finally access the failed HDD (G:, in this case). The first 9 file segments came back unreadable, so it's clearly not in the best way.

Anyhow, I'm trying to use his laptop to do this job so I don't have to tie up my desktop doing it. It will boot from the System repair disc, but it just boots to the background (that blue Windows 7 one) with a moving mouse. It could just be taking a really long time, but I was wondering if anybody could tell me how to get this working or if it's worth my while to wait.

If not, does anybody have any suggestions for how to get the data off the HDD?

Thanks

Hello. I am having a continuous issue with my computer. I apologize in advance for being an amateur at computer repair so please bear with me if I need to better understand some terminology.

My computer is continuously crashing. It reboots itself or turns itself off. I don't always see the BSOD when it shows up but I imagine it flickers every time it crashes. One time, I saw it, and it said "BAD POOL CALLER."

Every time it crashes I do the recommended startup repair just to get it to work again. It always tells me that Startup Repair cannot fix this computer and then it reboots and everything works again for awhile. I thought everything was fine and dandy a couple weeks ago and now it is starting all over again. Please help! Thank you

How it started: I had some problems with installing Rollup 2 for Windows XP MC edition 2005 and called Microsoft tech support. They told me to find my restore DVD from Dell and reinstall windows because the error is most likely caused by a missing/corrupt file. Then they proceeded to say they'll call me tomorrow at 11:30.

The Problem: I started the installation process. Everything is fine until it gets to the point where the screen is on installing. It gets stuck at precisely the point where it says "34 minutes left" in installation process. I note the process at the time is "installing devices". I wait about a little under 2 hours and no progress. Sometime at around +1 hour after it gets stuck at "34 minutes left", I get a pop-up to insert a "Creative...(something)" CD and push OK. I assume it's a file in the restoration DVD, but it's not after looking through it...and I simply hit cancel and it seems that installation proceeds, albeit still stuck at "34 minutes left" mark.

After waiting...annoyed at no progress, I hard-reset my comp and repeat the process about 3 more times...getting the same result: stuck at "34 minutes left" (I didn't wait 2 hours like the first time). Finally after the 3rd hard reset, I get a Windows XP installation screen that says "restarting installation process" (this happens everytime if I start boot-up from HD instead of CD like the first time)...then a blac...

Hello, I was wondering if you guys could help me out with a system repair?
I've tried everything on the repair disc but none of it seems to be working for me.
It doesn't even detect my operating system when it asks me to choose a recovery tool.
The OS just says "Unknown on (Unknown) Local Disk". When I try fixing it with Startup Repair it tells me that startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

As you are at Sevenforums I suppose you're talking about Win 7.
Please give us more info about your hardware (Laptop) as brand, model, amount of memory etc.
Is your windows disk from the laptop manufacture?
Do you have a backup of all your data files?
If you're trying to do a clean install, don't you have a BIOS factory recovery option (beware, it formats your HDD)?

Well last week Tuesday my power supply blew on my work PC when I turned it on.  New power supply finally came in yesterday.  I was out but our office tech installed the new Power supply and booted the PC - said it booted OK, however no mouse (I had un-plugged the logitech wireless USB mouse receiver to use with another computer), no biggee.
 
There may have been Windows updates before on left on the 4th - I don't recall
 
Turned on the PC this morning and plugged in the USB Mouse receiver and BSOD.
 
Restarted the PC and Startup Repair option came up - ran the Startup Repair and as usual (my experience), it was unsuccessful in detecting any problems.
 
Tried another boot, same issue - BSOD - System "Stopped to prevent Damage ..."
 
Re-booted and did F8 to try Last Known Good - no luck.
 
Tried System recovery with Windows Install disk, no restore point found :-(
 
At this point I've tried every Non-Destructive recovery option that is available with no success.  Looking at the log files, there are no *.log files in the \Windows directory showing today's date - only .log files are from yesterday.
 
setupact.log shows activity from an IE10 patch update.
 
error.log only shows one line from yesterday 2015-09-15 "NT Service build 1100 starting"
 
 
Any ideas how I can get this system to ignore the "Bad Driver" and boot?
 
Way too many licensed programs on this PC to consider a clean install of Windows ...

I am pretty sure that a virus cause this, right before my computer shut down on it's own my anti virus popped up and said that a Trojan was found but I didn't have to do anything. Then the computer shut down and when it restartrd started to load files and then go into startup repair, only it couldn't fix it. I tried a restore, but again it said that the startup files wern't there. I just quickly scanned the diagnostic details and noticed something that said "boot critical file C:\CI.dll is corrupt".

I am so worried I won't be able to fix this and will lose everything! Any help is so greatly appreciated!!

A:Startup Repair - windows cannot repair this computer automatically

Reinstall Windows. It's faster and easier. I never do a system repair. Usually installing windows , drivers and most of the useful programs takes about 2 hours and finally You have a new system. Virus scan and system repair takes much longer, and it's not so successful .

I'm running Windows 7 Professional, installed onto a Crucial M4 SSD.
It won't let me boot in safe mode, and gives the same message.
I have no system restore points.
chkdsk /r doesn't work in command prompt and comes up with: 'The type of the file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive. Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.

Would anyone be able to help me resolve this? Thanks a lot.

Try chkdsk c: /r /x (/x forces dismount of the drive).

If the chkdsk scan runs but does not fix the issue, then please go back to the Command Prompt and enter sfc /scannow. Reboot once finished to see if it has fixed your issue.

AS the title says, my PC went into hibernation a few days ago and wouldn't wake up. So i had to do a plug switch turn off.

Now when it boots up , it goes into startup repair but i get the message
''Startup repair - windows cannot repair this computer automatically''

then i have to send or don't send an error report
then i get 6 options , i cant remember them off top of my head.

I have Windows 7 Professional
but i've long lost the disc, apparently system restore doesn't work either it always fails for some reason.
p.s i ran checkdisk and that didn't find anything wrong, although there clearly is.
( upon boot up now if i press F8 i get the option of 3 startups, now i'm only guessing but 1 and 2 are a jumble of numbers and letters and 3 is normal startup i think . only option 2 works and i boot normally. if i don't press F8 though i get all that malarky above )

What else could it be ?
How do i fix this ?

Cgadrim Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! If the problem is only corrupted boot files, it might be repairable.You will need access to a working PC in order to create the media needed to repair your PC boot loader.You will need to create something known as a Win7 Repair CD.  This will repair the boot loader files, and if that is the problem, your PC will boot OK after that.This can be obtained (for a fee) from this link:  http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/When you download this file, it will be an ISO file.To make a bootable CD from it, you will need to download and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/Once you have that installed, run it, select the option "Write image file to disc" and select the ISO file you downloaded, and point it to a blank CD.Once you have that, run it, in the Device entry, use the pulldown to select the USB stick.  Down near the bottom right, where is says "Create a bootable disk using", select the ISO file you downloaded.-------------------------------------Boot from the media you created, and follow the directions in this link: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/681-startup-repair.html Yeah, I know that says Win7 but that and Vista have the same boot loader files.You will probably have to run Startup Repair three times for it to fix all the boot loader problems.When done, your PC should boot OK.Good Luck

We recently enabled folder redirection for a few staff members. After their PST file is migrated to the network share, Outlook can't read it. When we run the Outlook Inbox Repair Tool. We get this error: This data file appears to have been created using a newer version of Microsoft Outlook that this Inbox Repair Tool does not support.

The Office version has not changed on these machines - they are running Office 2013. SCANPST is being ran from these machines as well.

Apparently my computer had double files on the c drive so I deleted ten yesterday, before running a disk clean up. I also deleted several miscellaneous programs (not on C) installed when I bought it. today however it failled to start normally. I've tried what was recommended on system recovery options ( command prompt, window memoery diagnostics) but is hesitant to do a system restore/system image recovery as I don't have a piint in time for it to restore too.It has some really important pictures that I don't want to lose. please help me figure out what is wrong.

After "startup repair" you have a choice to click. Something like "view diagnostic details". Click on it. What tests were done and don't have status code 0x0? Give all details please.

You uninstalled programs the way you should?

I am in major crisis mode because my laptop is stuck in startup mode and can't repair itself. I've tried a few command tricks but most of them require safe mode, which I can't access at all. Also, many threads have mentioned reinstalling windows 7, which would be fine if my disk drive hadn't burnt out recently. I am terrified of losing all my files so I don't want to toy around with anything. Thoughts?

A:Startup Repair on laptop cannot repair computer automatically.

Welcome DelaneyNicole.

Sounds like a shame that you do not have a backup of your files.

Some things you could try:
> Try accessing windows repair from boot (press F8 and select the recovery option),
> Borrow a disc drive from another system (maybe a friends?),
> Use a bootable USB drive with say some version of Linux on it to access your files.

Do you know what happens to cause this problem?

Regards
Stephen
