Startup Repair error : Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupted

Q: Startup Repair error : Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupted

Every time the computer is turned on or restarted it runs Starup Repair. When i look at the diagnosis it says 'boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupt'. I have already tried to restore the computer but i don't have the discs where i have backed up the computer. I have also run a virus scan with Avira and it did pick up 4 viruses and i removed them but the error still occurs. If someone could help me and give me guidance it'll be much appreciated.

A: Startup Repair error : Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupted

After the PC tries the start up repair, select advanced options. From there you should be able to access CMD.

Once you get CMD open run this command. sfc /scannow -This will scan the integrity of all protected system files and repairs the system files if needed.

Sup guys, every time i turn on my PC or restart it jumps to Windows is loading file and then starts doing start up repair and later on it would show me error log:

Root cause found:
Boot critical file C:\\ci.dll is corrupt

And then it would say:

Repair action:
Repair the file

What should i do?

A:Boot Critical File c:\\ci.dll Corrupted - HELP!

Another one?

There have been a few of these lately.

CI checks for unsigned drivers and checks that various system files haven’t been mucked about with by any nasties.

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

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

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

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

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

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

A:Boot Critical File c:\\ci.dll Corrupted

Well, the problem is resolved. I stumbled right after writing this message on the following article:http://blogs.technet.com/b/mmpc/archive/2011/06/22/don-t-write-it-read-it-instead.aspxSo the fix was as easy as running bootrec.exe /fixmbr

Hi,

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

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

The short version: my Acer Aspire S3-391-6046 laptop crashed a week ago, and now it is unable to boot. It says the boot configuration data is missing or contains errors, with error code 0xc0000185. When I ran chkdsk in command prompt, it said the master file table is corrupted and Windows could not recover it. Diskpart also lists several volumes with Fs RAW (including C: ). I have tried startup repair and bootrec commands but it hasn?t worked. I don't really know what I'm doing/what to do, and would appreciate help from some informed people. Microsoft support suggested renaming & copying over registry files, but that was before I did chkdsk and I'm scared of doing something that would make my situation worse. Thank you for any help you can give me!!!__________More details:At the time of the crash, my computer was on but not running anything at the time as I had been watching a DVD but ejected it because it started glitching.

I'v installed Windows 7 64Bit as dual boot with 32Bit. I'v landed up with a list of issues for some unexplainable reason and still left with 2 big issues I need help with.

This is what happened: After files were copied on reboot I got boot error "NTLDR" not found. Then I did a repair to get into my current installation and found boot manager saying Windows 7 (recovered). (The recovered part is new.)

Now both installations are marked like this and in My Computer the disk "System Reserved" is showing all of a sudden and it has the same drive letter as my external ( E: ). My external drive is now not showing any more.

How do I fix this...

Are you by chance running a modified Kernel (ie a non original MS OS)?

ntkrlstaforce.exe isnt a "standard" OS file?


"from a malware blog site"
you're using a modified kernel (NTKRLSTAFORCE.EXE). That's not supported by anyone. Since all kaspersky versions provide extended protection with deep ties into the kernel, expect it won't work.
so basically, if you're using a modified kernel:
-if it works: good for you
-if it doesn't: s***s for you

Hi Everyone... A video codec/driver seized on my machine and corrupted vista/vista startup so that it will not boot... There are no recovery/repair options in the Advanced Boot Menu...Vista x64 came pre-installed...and the supplied recovery discs have no reppair options...only reformat and reinstall...thereby loosing everything... I booted Hirems and scandisk says that there are no disk errors...so it is an OS corruption...

When trying to load OS in any mode, the blue screen reads:

Shut down to prevent damage to computer.
UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME
STOP: 0x0000000ED (0xFFFFFA8006981A40, 0xFFFFFFFFC00000B5, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)

It seems that my problem is that Asus did not provide me with discs that have repair options...nor pre-install any... There has to be a way to repair Vista without having to loose everything with a re-install???

A:sfc and startup repair found corrupted files but can't fix

Hey, there is a known issue with a recent Windows Update (KB3022345), it causes an irrepairable corruption warning (which is a false report, the files are not corrupt in reality). If you have this update installed then do one of the following:
- Uninstall this update (it is Windows 10 preparation update)
or
- Run the fix from The Tech Cookbook – Windows 7 update (KB3022345) causing corrupt files

After the above, run another SFC /scannow. If you still get a corruption, attach it in your next post.

Ctrl+alt +del gives logon screen but its is empty save for the blue window frame and three icons at bottom right. Have tried: entering password blind but that failed, tried Shift + click restart, it just restarts normally, same again.
I can boot from installation usb drive and get command prompt with Ctrl+F10. to try Fixmbr commands, no affect
Have done 3x power interupt boot to get to repair screen, Auto repair ran check disk, and auto start up repair, all failed to help, but reported start up corrupted. Then tried safe mode. this boots to completely correct logon screen, showing three users: Administrator, Mum, & Dad.
Tried to log on as administrator, accepts logon but after spinning dots, just a black screen, no desk top, tried: win key+p and down arrow, no affect.
Log on as Mum just the same.
Log on as Dad it works starts desk top in safe mode can run Msconfig, Command prompt, etc. looks OK.
The only programs installed other than windows are Office 2013 and Chrome. Nothing else.
Revert to normal boot and its is still hanging.
The only things plugged in are: KB, Mouse, and Dynamode USB WiFi but have removed that and made no difference.

A:Startup repair + corrupted software + chkdsk errors

Well...I would never terminate a chkdsk...unless I think that the hard drive itself is the problem.  Chkdsk /r doesn't actually repair the hard drive...it's a file system tool and tries to repair file or file system problems it detects.  Terminating it is self-defeating, IMO, since it may result in file corruption that did not have to occur.
 
If the system boots now...please run the chkdsk /r command to completion.

I just finished reading this thread http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/cannot-boot-windows-startup-repair-cannot-repair-this-computer-automatically-663898.html as I'm having the same issue. Here's a brief history.

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.
Last night I turned off the power and went to bed. This morning I switched on the PC and let it boot up. Lo and behold WIN7 started right up no problems -- the Attached devices window opened right up as well. Then I saw that it was loading drivers for 3 attached devices -- all USB devices and one r...

Hi, everyone.

Today, after restarting my computer, I was faced with the Startup Repair tool, unable to boot Windows 7.
A couple hours later, after running startup tool a total of 29 times I have been unable to solve the problem.

I have also:

Tried booting in safe mode[didn't work]
Tried last known good config[didn't work]

Based on some advice I read elsewhere, I also ran chkdsk /r/f c: . It completed successfully.

Even just knowing how I can extract my files so that I can re-install windows would be a big help.
Startup tool doesn't take over a minute to complete, and displays these details:

Hey all. I just put together a new computer a few weeks ago. It has been working without incident for about two weeks, but when I got home from a 4 day vacation, it was frozen at the login screen. When I rebooted, it gave me a BSOD stating the kernel (NTOSKRNL.EXE) was missing or corrupted.

I made a bootable flash drive with the Windows 10 ISO using the Media Creation Tool as well as with rufus. When I plug in the flash drive, the computer takes a couple minutes before it loads the Windows logo, but does not go into the install/recovery screen. When I plug it into my laptop which runs Windows 8.1, it boots into the install screen almost immediately. I've tried disconnecting all the USB inputs, using a different keyboard, using USB 3.0 and 2.0 both in rear and in back of my tower, updating the BIOS, using onboard video without my GPU, using the CMOS jumper, and using a different flash drive. I have also tried burning the ISO to DVD and it still hangs up.

No matter what I do, it just stays at a black screen after going to the Windows logo. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

I've tried restarting it and even removed the hardrive and it does the same thing. I can't get past the startup repair screen. It is more or less shutdown and restart, contact the administrator or your computer provider. The "root cause" seems to be the following:

A:Need Help:Boot Critical File C

Hello,

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

When will HP or Microsoft create a fix for this error? There are 236,000 posts about this on Microsoft Community. Yet no fix. "Windows 10 Critical Error Startup not working" I worked with the HP IT, the only workaround is creating a new account profile with administrative rights. Setting up that account then  copying your files to that account. It takes too much time for a temporary  fix. This has happened to me 3 times since I bought my computer 2 months ago and no one has a permanent fix! I can not keep creating new profile accounts, it take too long to copy files and set the account up. There are computers where this does not happen, I'm doing research and return my HP back to Best Buy, it is unusable.

Hi,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

I suspect I have the exact same problem as referenced by Jan Soall and solved by m0le and farbar (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic396014.html).

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

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

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

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

As the title suggests, my Acer Aspire has been running startup repair for over 20 hours following a BSOD yesterday. I'm not sure if it's worth the wait so maybe you all can shed some light. Yesterday I was stressfully trying to search for something (using Chrome) and the website I was on froze; admittedly I slammed the heels of my hands down on the laptop at that point. The site unfroze after less than 30 seconds, I continued using my laptop without incident, then let it hibernate for about an hour. Started up fine after that, and at that point I was beginning to rip a DVD (one that I owned; I just wanted the files on my computer) using a program that I've used successfully in the past, but the rip failed. So I began using VLC instead, and hadn't actually started ripping any files when my laptop froze. I had been trying to point to a file path for saving but hadn't saved anything. The laptop was completely unresponsive after several minutes, so I hit the power key to restart, which is when I got the BSOD. It flashed too quickly for me to read or remember anything other than the word KERNEL. I've been wracking my brain trying to remember if it said kernel error or kernel memory error or what.

After the BSOD I had the option to start normally or in startup repair; I hit "start windows normally" but it went to repair anyway. It was on the grey screen with the cursor but I thought it had frozen again, so I did another hard restart. No BSOD this time, but again the opti... Read more

My laptop hasn't been in use for about a few weeks and all of a sudden, I am getting a Windows Error Recovery on Startup. I am given two options: Launch Startup Repair (recommended) and Start Windows Normally. Nothing happens when I try to restart Windows normally -- I only see a black screen. Upon selecting System Recovery, a teal screen pops up with "System Recovery Options" telling me to select a keyboard layout. Then it tells me to select my OS, but it comes up blank, telling me to load drivers for my hard disks. I stopped right there.

I am a little hesitant about using the System Recovery in fear of losing important files. If this is a possibility, I may try to backup my files using an alternate OS, like Ubuntu. Or are my files already long gone? Is this just a restore for important Windows files or a complete restore of Windows back to factory settings?

I have not installed any new software or devices. Running Windows Vista x64.

Hi guys I was cleaning my laptop turned it on and it just wouldn't work so I turned it off and on again and it was giving me this error code saying my keyboard is not detected in start up. It then says there was a problem and shoots me to startup repair where it's just stuck not doing anything. My mouse and keyboard don't work, but I have a wireless mouse that I can use I can't access safe mode either because my keyboard doesn't work and I don't know if I can get a keyboard hooked up since my computer might not be able to recognize it. Sorry for the badly worded paragraph it's really late and I need to go to sleep. How can I solve this problem. Also startup time is really long ( usually 20 seconds) is now 5 min an doesn't even start up some times and I have no recovery disks or anything like that so im really confused what to do
Edit: A quick update, I started my computer in the morning and was not getting error 01010003, and my computer started perfectly fine however my keyboard still isn't working. I think it might be a driver problem, but I can't access Safe Mode... because my keyboard doesn't work. Is the only way of getting the key board to work getting a new keyboard and using that to diagnose the problem through safe mode or?

A:Error 0101003 Keyboard no detected, stuck on startup/startup repair

In this situation, you have to use another keyboard in order to test. I wish you will be luckier than me .... for me it turned out to be a motherboard failure My computer was working normally .... but no USB/PS2 ports were working.

I have been having problems for about 3 weeks now. BSOD's, critical error shutdowns, unable to startup problems.

The startup repair usually fixes startup by restoring back to a time when the computer was properly configured. Then it works for awhile and then more problems.

So far I have run a chkdsk \r (224 kb in bad sectors), run a memory diagnosis(supposedly fine), updated drivers with a driver updater, run a registry fixer, downloaded "BlueScreen Viewer"(nice program), ran Virus Scan(Avast, Malwarebyte Anti-Malware, Super Anti Spyware), and did allot of research.

Usually the crashes are supposedly due to IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, or memory management. The drivers are NTKNLPA.exe, hal.dll(usually one of these) but others are, Ntfs.sys, aswSP.SYS, nvstor 32.sys

Do not know what else to do.
I would appreciate any and all help!!!

Welcome
Looks like a memory problem. Take memtest 86 to be sure. Run for 8 passes. Then take each stick and test it in a good slot for 6 passes.

I can't get Windows to load properly. Can't get into any safe modes. Just the startup repair screen, over and over. It tells me that there are no system restore points. I have tried copying the ntoskrnl.exe from another Win 7 computer. I have tried the "How to get out of the endless system repair loop" tutorial. The repair attempts are giving me a "0x2" error code. I tried to run sfc /scannow. It tells me (no matter how I try) that there is a system repair that needs finishing and to reboot and try again. (yes I did that) I am running chkdsk /f /r right now. Is there any point in continuing to try to fix? Or should I just reformat and reinstall? (I have already backed up all my data)

Dear Tech guy,

I sure hope you can assist me to get my sony vaio vgnfw44jb to boot into windows 7 again. Its been 3 days of wrestling and I got to the end of what I know.

So

My Sony Vaio started to run weirdly and do random things; I figured it was infected so here's what I did.

1. downloaded and ran the free malwarebytes tool. >> some things removed but system still buggy
2. system restore > chose a 'good restore point' >>> ran slowly > result system restore failed
]tried older restore points> system restore result> failed
3. Vaio stopped booting into win 7 >>> able to boot into safe mode>> inserted win 7 system build cd to reinstall but thats not allowed in safe mode
4. downloaded Kapersky rootkiller cd >> ran this overnight >> forgot to save log to usb drive >> vaio stopped booting at all
5. downloaded the Hiren CD ( yes, read its all pirated not asking for help with that) ran mbrfix tool >> no change
6. found techguy site, browsed around, joined, downloaded ubcd > burned to cd
7. tested vaio : power on > windows starts but does not complete > vaio care begins> not able to repair, suggests I repair registry
8. viao now has ubcd in cd drive, powered off

Any advice on how I can fix my pc and get it to boot or... reinstall win 7 without losing my latest data?

Is there a way to strip off the data and applications so I can restore to vaio after fix?

Hiya,

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

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

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

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

In the end, it could not fix the issue.

From the error report, the following message comes up ;

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

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

Help !!!

Thanks

Michael

That is the Windows NT Kernel.

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

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

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

Error message reads as follows: "Boot critical file c:\windows\system32\drivers\grpwcyi.sys is corrupt"

I was downloading a file from the internet, about half way through the download the computer shutdown and restarted.

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

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

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

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

I would appreciate some help and guidance on this. Thank you.

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

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

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

I am using my cellphone because my computer is stuck in startup repair mode. I have windows vista.I can choose repair or normal, both run start up repair. It always fails after multiple attempts. I chose advanced options after failures and tried to do a hard drive restore to several different dates. It always says its successful and restarts, but goes into startup repair again every time. I have called ms tech support, and not surprisingly my problem requires advanced help that costs money. They did have me restart and push f8 to launch safe mode, but it ended up in startup repair also. I have agreed to pay them but set up an appt for next tues. They said i can cancel and get my money back if i want. They said my problem is fixable and my photos and files will be there. I just feel like i may have a better option and I'm hoping this website is it. I can restart my computer and give the details if its needed.

A:Boot File corrupted

A. On POST screen press 'F8' and try booting from "Last known good configuration"
-- if Vista loads, remove Bootskin.

B. If last known good config does not work, HP's usually ship with a recovery partition. To access it should be 'F11' while on POST [it should also tell you on POST screen which key to use] - then cycle through to recover sys files.
-- side note: if you have a recovery partition and after your pc's loading again - use the HP Recovery Manager and make recovery discs as a recovery backup.

C. If neither of the above are workable solutions and you have access to another computer... you can pull the HDD, hook it up for external use, and remove bootskin manually.

-- if you don't have the hardware to do the above, but you do have access to another computer with internet access - you can use a Linux Live CD to access your HDD and remove bootskin from there. You can download Linux distros for free [Ubuntu works just fine and is easy to use], burn the image on a CD and simply run from the CD and 'test' Linux.

If you remove Bootskin manually, be sure to remove it completely in Vista from Vista [once it's working].

Hello,

I own a VAIO laptop that runs windows XP. The past days when I tried to boot, I sometimes got an error saying something about a file being corrupted and I was prompted to press R to repair the installation. I did so and my computer booted normally. After a while, i started receiving this message again after pressing R, and again and again and so on, until it finally booted. Now though, I cannot get past that screen. I then booted the pc with a repair ubuntu live cd and i ran some diagnostics. This report is prior to running the default repair me tool, and this one after running it. I however, do not know what the reports say and I do not understand the issue. Can anyone help me?

If you have a Windows XP CD, boot off of the that and get to the Recovery Console Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. Check Disk will run through 5 stages and it will take a long while. Afterward try to boot normally. If that doesn't solve the problem.
Then back in the RC, type FIXBOOT and press enter and try to boot normally. If that fails, back in the RC type FIXMBR and press enter and try to boot normally.
If you don't have a Windows XP CD you can download the ISO image for the Recovery Console, DOWNLOAD: Windows Recovery Console burn the image to CD using IMGBurn in my signature and boot off of that CD.

So I inserted the installation disk, and wouldn't you know it, the installer wouldn't recognize my hard drive (BIOS recognizes it though). Searching for reasons why this was happening only turned up people saying to make sure it was recognized by BIOS, which I considered a no brainier.

When I boot at the Thoshiba screen (options to boot into setup/multiboot) there are green lines going vertically through the screen. It will not boot if that is the case. It then initializes start up repair which gives me the error above. I have tried to restore from earlier points to no avail. I have reinstalled vista from my disks at which point it worked for a minor peroid of time and this started to happen again. Virus? Once In awhile it will boot without the green vertical lines and will start up just fine, but this appears to be random. I would appreciate any help that can be provided. Thank you.

A:Startup Repair and failure to boot.

Your Startup Repair log shows a bad driver as the cause - and you're having video problems - so it's not a far reach to figure that the video drivers may be the cause.

Can you boot into Safe Mode? To do this, try rapidly tapping the F8 key just before the Windows Splash Screen shows up.

If you get in, try Safe Mode with Networking Support - and then download a new copy of your video drivers from the video card manufacturer's website (ATI, nVidia, Intel, etc).

Then uninstall your current video drivers through Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program. Then install the new drivers and see if that helps.

I was installing a system image in windows7 and my pc froze up and I needed to restart but after that it just said operating system is missing. I can not get my PC to boot a startup repair disk made from my other pc running windows 7..... on a new dvd 16xrecordable. The PC just says No Boot Device Available. I can not find my original windows 7 disk.
I want to try and reload my system image on D drive that is unaffected but I can not get windows repair to load. I have my DVD drive set to be the first boot drive.

I followed the Directions exactly as seen here Create a System Repair Disc in Windows 7

My PC wont load the startup repair DVD Recordable disc that was created.

Would it be possible to put the startup repair files on a USB DRIVE and then set my first boot device to be the external USB drive?

The same startup repair disk works on the pc it was created, but not on the broken PC. I am wondering if my dvd drive on my broken pc is also broken or if the C drive is too corrupted from been disturbed during a system image operation.

A:Startup repair wont boot up

First off, is this the same system repair dvd you were using to do the re image ?

I would have just used a cd.

Did you test the disc on the pc you made it from ? Does it work there ?

I'm doing a degree in IT, so I am well knowledged.

I'm trying to help a friend (over the phone so not the easiest way) of fixing his computer.

On boot it is taking him to the windows 7 startup repair which fails with StartUpRepairOflline AutoFailover CorruptFile

I have suggested the following, all which have failed to make a difference:

bootrec.exe with /fixmbr /fixboot and /RebuildBcd

Run chkdsk

Startup repair

System Restore - two dates tried

The pc is about a month or so old, and I'm thinking it could be a hardware issue, hard drive?

Two things I am going to try when I get there is a WD Diagnostics on the Hard drive, and the sfc I'm just wondering if you guys have any other suggestions to what could be causing this, or something that I may have missed?

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

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

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

Any help would be great.

Hi,

Went to turn on my computer today and got a screen with the Dell Logo and a message "Boot manager has recovered from a critical error." It went on to say there were missing or corrupt files that were restored from the default configuration. I did a Google search and found absolutely nothing about this error. Can someone provide some insight? I am a bit freaked out.This laptop is only 2 months old. I couldn't find anything in the event viewer either. Thanks in advance!

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

Hi

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

My Win2k system has started giving me an error that 'the file D:\winnt\system32\config\system.sav is missing or corrupted' when I try to boot. I never get to the desktop.

I've tried the Windows Installayion repair tool via booting from the CD, and it finishes doing its thing, but I still get the error.

Any idea on how I can fix this?

A:'corrupted' system.sav file preventing boot

system.sav is part of your registry, so it is pretty vital to your system, only thing i can say is copy system.sav from another computer and put it onto yours and hope it will boot enough to let you start backing up data and then do a re-install, because there are alot of settings and software specific settings in that file it isnt one you can just restore and go about your business.

Hi everyone,
I find this problem a little bit tricky. I have another laptop that I use beside my other laptop and I deleted some important registry files. I am trying to find a way to boot the OS and restore the the entries from a backup registry file but the system won't work normally now through safe mode nor the last good configuration option. I have researched the net and I found some good articles that grant you an access to The Recovery Console since I don't have a copy of Windows XP Home which is Here.
After successfully accessing the RC, things have gotten tougher. I followed an article in MS support pages Here because I have what actually appears when I boot the system which is

Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM
But the system files is not willing to be copied or repaired. I tried to do the whole procedures again but the existing "md tmp" directory is there and I guess it won't be overwritten. Also, :windows\system32\config\system is not found. I can't remember that I deleted the folder i just played with entries in order to remove an annoying piece of junk which is Symantec AV that is rooted in my computer and I guess I wiped off a system entry. Please help me restore the back file or atleast reach it or run the System restore. All suggestions are cordially welcome.

When I try to run the command prompt, it says hat it can not complete the task because a system repair is in process. Please help me, I have important files om there for clients.

Hi everyone,

I'm typing this from my blackberry so please excuse any typing errors etc.

This is currently my only access to the internet so if possible please avoid from suggesting download links etc for certain programs and whatnot as I'm rather limited with what I can do.

My problem:

recently my laptop got a virus (not the first time, I'm a download junkie, I bring it upon myself)

The other night it all froze up so I had to force it into shutdown (holding the power key)

Upon trying to reboot it goes straight to the Startup Repair menu.

Yes, I know there is a guide about how it works but after reading it, I'm still confused.

I've had a similar problem before involving a crash dump/bluescreen error but it somehow fixed itself.

Anyway. During Startup Repair, it finds no apparent way of dealing with the unknown problem

I'm then of course given the options of command prompt, system restore, windows memory diagnostics etc etc.

None of the options are helping.

System restore - I have no system restore points to allocate
Full Pc restore - I have data I don't have backed up properly so I'd rather not get it put into factory settings
Memory diagnostics - I run the test(s) and all it does is reboot, and go back to Startup Repair after finding no apparent errors.
Command prompt - I'm not a whizz with it so I'm not sure if any commands would help. CHKDSK certainly isn't doing anything to help.

I don't have a Vista OS disc. All I have iis the following:

- HP Pavilion DV5 10... Read more

I recently tried to install Rollback Rx on my windows 7 Professional Desktop, it told me after I installed it that the program didn't have a signed digital driver or something, which I didn't think would be a problem. It then asked me if I wanted to restart my system, which I said yes.

Rollback Rx started before windows booted up, trying to install. After a half hour, it hadn't even gotten past 0%, so I hit escape, and that's when my problems started. It tries to boot and I get a quick BOD, but it only flashes and doesn't give me enough time to read it, my computer will not start. It asks me if I want to run Startup repair, which I say yes to, but that can not fix it either. It says Startup Repair can not repair this computer automatically under problem details I have:

Hi Ryansixty6,

What is the brand/model of your computer? Do you have a desktop or laptop computer? Try testing the computer hard-drive for any errors. Go to the manufacturer's website of the HDD and download the "HDD Diagnostics Utility". Put the program onto a CD and boot the computer up to the CD. Then test the computer HDD for any errors. If the program comes up with errors, then I recommend taking out the HDD and connecting it to a working computer via USB adapter. Transfer the important files you have on the HDD onto the working computer.

Hope everything works out well for you.

Hello, This 1 of 2 of my posts about related issues about a desktop and a laptop. This is post is about my DESKTOP. My laptop issue is different enough to warrant a separate post. I was surfing on the net a few days ago and the W32.Blaster.Worm virus came through Firefox automatically. The fake scanning program was running and everything. Eventually, my laptop stopped booting up. A day later, my desktop started to freeze after booting into windows, then would stall while booting up. They were previously connected through the network and I'm positive this is why I had this problem. I can start my desktop in Safe Mode. I ran Malwarebytes Antimalware, Spybot S&D, Adaware, and a Symantec Blaster removal tool. None of them found Blaster, but they found some other malware and removed it. The desktop still hangs during bootup when the colored orbs are swirling around. When I boot it using the repair disc, Startup Repair cannot solve the problem and gives this error message: Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline PS1: 6.1.7600.16385 PS2: 6.1.7600.16385 PS3: unknown PS4: -1 PS5: ExternalMedia PS6: 1 PS7: MissingBootManager PS8: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1 LocalID: 1033 I don't have System Restore available and I don't have any System Images (gonna set this up from now on....). I think the virus messed with the registry. Please let me know if I should re-post this in the Virus section. Thanks! (Sorry, I don't know why the site is removing my carriage returns....)
