bluescreen-startup repair error broke

Q: bluescreen-startup repair error broke

I downloaded a program called "iinet usage analyser" v2.3 went 'i agree to allow this program to make changes to my computer" and it blue screened. When it restarted, I can't start it in safe mode. I tried start-up system repair and I get the following details:

Problem event name: startupRepair Offline
Problem signature 1. 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 2. 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 3 unknown
Problem signature 4 21200462
Problem signature 5 autofailure
Problem signature 6 13
Problem signature 7 0x109
OS Version 6.1.7600.
Locale ID 1033

I would normally system restore to an earlier point, I have tried this multiple times, but isn't working even to a point about 2 weeks before when it happened. Which suggests to me it really broke something...
Do I have to system restore to factory settings? (i don't really want to do this - re load all programs etc.)

Any recommendations are helpful.

Preferred Solution: bluescreen-startup repair error broke

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi everybody
I recently cloned an SSD with Windows 7 Pro on from an HP EliteBook to an SSD from the same brand and the same size.

Edit; The cloned SSD is being used in a HP ProBook

When booting the cloned SSD, I'm getting a BSOD. I used the repair disk to perform a startup repair. When done I got the following message;
problem details:

Other things I've done and did not show any results;

Is there anything else I can do, since I really want to avoid a fresh install (A lot of personal configurations on the employees' device)

Hi There,

I'm inquiring on behalf of my flatmate, who is entirely clueless about computers. Her laptop, a Toshiba Satellite Pro of an unknown spec, somehow became infected with a ransom-ware program called Vista Total Security. I told her I'd take a look and, after stopping the process (the first stage of a guide I found) the computer restarted itself, and never came back up fully.

I tried to enter Safe mode, but the computer reset itself. It suggested I try Startup Repair, but this only took me to a VGA screen with an alert window saying "The installed program cannot start, click OK to turn off the computer". Sure enough, clicking OK turns off the computer.

I'm able to open the F8 menu to try and enter safe mode, but all of those options simply flash up a BSOD with the message:
A Problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation, or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration and check for any update ddrivers. run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical Information:

A:Vista Total Security 2011 - Broke Startup Repair

I was able to use a Linux Live CD (good old Knoppix, seems to have started doing text to speech the whole time though... Weird.) to have a look on my flatmate's machine.

The files are all there, which is good, there are also two partitions. One labeled Vista, the other labeled Data. There's some stuff on the (largely empty) data disk that looks like recovery stuff, but I don't know how to boot this, or is this what windows tries to do if I select the "Repair" option at the F8 prompt?

In any case, I cleared some space on one of my external drives and copied her files onto it just in case.

I spoke to her, her main concern is that she's very busy and doesn't have the time to reinstall everything at the moment. Also, if we're unable to get the recovery to work, she has no installation disk so she'd need to buy a new copy of windows. I'm thinking of taking it back to where she bought it, but she's lost the receipt so she'd have a lot of trouble trying to get them to help her for free.

Hello all, not sure where to post this, as it may be related to my motherboard, but here goes!

I am having huge problems with my computer. It was working just fine two days ago, I havn't changed any settings or hardware. Now it won't boot Windows 7, it only gets to "Starting Windows" and gets stuck, the hard disk stops spinning, a bluescreen flashes and then the computer reboots. I've also noticed the keyboard and mouse are dead at moments during this procedure. Next time it boots it tries to run Startup repair but fails and restarts, with error 0x0 at every step, and this becomes an endless loop. Also after BIOS post it says Marvell bla bla Adapter 1 Disk not found, but both SATA disks are found in BIOS. Not sure if this is related however.

What I have tried so far:
Removing memory sticks, putting them in different ports
Removing all unnecessary cards, DVD drives and USB devices, and hard disks
Removing the motherboard battery
Switching SATA ports
Changing SATA cables
Changing hard disk mode from IDE to AHCI
Tried starting in fail safe mode (same thing, crashes during file loading)

My rig:
Windows 7 64 bit, Gainward GTX 470 1280 mb, 4 GB 1066 Mhz Corsair Dominator, Asus P5Q-E, Intel Core 2 Duo E8500, Creative XtremeMusic X-fi, 700W CoolerMaster SilentPro, Fractal Design R3, 250 + 500 GB WD SATAII.

Before this happened I would occasionally also have problems with the USB units not lighting up, monitor giving "no signal" and Windows not ... Read more

Hello Seven Community,

I have a more or less typical problem. A Netbook of my GFriend Lenovo u160 has the 0x000000ED Bluescreen Error after loading Windows 7. It starts after the Windows 7 Loading Screen.
So I tried the intern Windows Repair Function, but after the loading screen.... nothing, not even a blue screen, just black for like ever.

So I took another Windows 7 Pc and made a Windows Repair Disk, as recommended.
The Lenovo u160 has no Disk Drive, so I took an extern one to boot the PC with the disk. Changed the Boot priority in the BIOS Menu and it worked, allmost.
It started all well, the setup started, you could choose a language and the next step was Install, Repair Tool and Windows Informations.

I choosed Repair Tool of course, but that was it. There was no next Step, just the Basic Windows Background. I thought, maybe it would take some time so I left it so for the night and next morning nothing happened. I restarted and choose Install, nothing happened. No way to start the pc and the disk seems not to work.

I have no Idea what to do now, do you have any solutions? And no I don't know which of the Win7 the Netbook ist Operating.

I apologise in advance for the very long post but I want to be sure you're fully informed of everything I've tried! I have tried looking my problem up on other threads here, but I couldn't find one where their problem was quite as extensive as mine. I tried all the advice found in those threads, and my problem persists.

Laptop: Dell Inspiron 1545
OS: Windows 7

For the last week or two, each time I turned on my laptop it would freeze up completely a couple of minutes after startup. I'd try turning off any none necessary startup programs to see if it made a difference but if happened every time. I couldn't shut it down or anything, because the computer would not respond. The only way to fix it was to turn it off via the power button and restart it. On restart everything would run smoothly, but the problem would happen again whenever I turned it on for the first time after being switched off for a bit.

Like I said, this problem occurred for two or three weeks, and then yesterday when I tried to turn it on it gave me the option to do a startup repair or start Windows normally. Neither works, and now my laptop will not start up at all.

Startup repair goes to the "Loading Windows Files" screen, taking a VERY long time before loading the screen with the Windows Login background with a moveable cursor but then stays there indefinitely (Image 1). The Start Windows Normally option gives me a bluescreen with UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME error and then ... Read more

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.

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.

Error -STOP: 0x0000007B upon startup of ASUS Q550LF laptop. Unable to boot--keep getting error. Have tried Startup Repair with Windows 7 bootable flash drive-which did not fix problem.

I had this hard drive in a Lenovo working just fine, so I got some software and uninstalled most of the drivers since I was moving THAT hard drive (with operating system on it) over to an ASUS Q550LF laptop. I did not want Lenovo drivers on the ASUS. So I installed the hard drive in the Asus and it started up a few times and then I started getting the error. Any idea how to fix the issue?

A:Bluescreen Error STOP: 0x0000007B on startup

Stop ox7B is INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE. That means the system cannot get access to the disc to boot from. The usual causes areThe Hard drive itself
Improper boot sequence
Boot virus, bootkit.
What you need to do are .... ► Test the HDD using Seatools for DOS.

► Scan the system for possible virus infection with Windows Defender Offline

► Do you have access to another computer right now? If so, download Partition wizard Bootable CD (the last one in the link). Burn it in a blank CD or in a USB flash stick.

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. I am desperately seeking your help and would definitely donate if you can fix my computer and i dont have to pay ms. I am not a computer idiot, but definitely NO expert.

Hi, check the following link.

Follow the link above to reach - Command Prompt.
At Command Prompt - Type.
Press Enter.
It will now give you some options.
bootrec /fixmbr
Press Enter.
Let it finish fixing the Master Boot Record.
Type Exit and exit Command Prompt [remove the DVD] and restart you pc.

If the above does not work - use the DVD and back to Command Prompt.
bootrec /fixboot
Press Enter
Let it finish fixing the boot sector.
Type Exit and exit Command Prompt [remove the DVD] and restart you pc.

I would try and back up any needed data and files first, before you do the above.

Hello everyone,

I?m posting because I?m having an issue with my laptop. It?s a Toshiba with Windows 7.

I used it yesterday with no problems whatsoever, but this morning when I booted it up, I very briefly saw a blue screen with coding, and it continued on. Everything seemed normal until a screen came up that read:

?Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause.

If Windows files have been damaged or configured incorrectly, Startup Repair can help diagnose and fix the problem. If power was interrupted during startup, choose Start Windows Normally.?

Then it gives me two options:

?Launch Startup Repair (recommended)?

?Start Windows Normally?

If I click on Launch Startup Repair, it gives me nothing but a blank screen, and it stays that way without
actually taking me to startup repair. If I click on Start Windows Normally, it just loops back to the original

This has happened to me once before, and on that occasion, I used system restore. I have all my major files
backed up in various places, but I would prefer to not to have to reupload and reorganize them all again,
because that?s a total pain. I?ve looked elsewhere online, but all I?ve found are tutorials leading you through
jungles of complex code. I?m not as technologically literate as they come. Disaster results whenever I try to code anything at all. I?m afraid that I?ll just screw it up more. Does anyone know what is happening here, and how I... Read more

I have my friends Acer 5920 Laptop with me running windows vista. It was displaying the blue screen of death at start up, Stop Code 0x0000C1F5. I successfully used Linux systemrescuecd to erase the TxfLog file and enable a system reboot.

Startup Repair then started and has now been hanging for hours and hours with no sign of anything happening. Is there any way of formatting the hard drive and starting again as the vista boot disk hangs on black and even safemode wont start.

Im not hugely knowledgeable on what info you all need so let me know.

A:Startup Repair Error?

You know more than I do - I've never even attempted the fix with the txtlog file.

That being said, backup the stuff that you want to save.
Use KillDisk or DBAN (both free - google for them) to wipe the drive completely.
Then install Windows from the recovery disks
IMMEDIATELY update Vista to SP1 and SP2 (this will, hopefully, avoid the C1F5 error)
If SP1 or SP2 fails, update drivers, then update to SP1 and SP2.

Info that I have on the C1F5 error: http://www.carrona.org/bsodindx.html#0x0000C1F5

First try booting into Safe Mode with Networking to install, update and run a full scan with Malwarebytes

If Safe Mode is not working, download, burn to CD or write to flash stick, boot and run a full scan with Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.

Once the System is clean, boot into System Recovery Options via the F8 menu or disk as shown in tutorial, run Startup Repair repeatedly no matter what it reports. Post back results.

If this fails, try System Restore from Recovery Options list, then if that fails open a Command Line to run SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot.

As a last resort boot free Partition Wizard bootable CD to Explore C to see if your files are intact, make sure C or the 100mb System Reserved partition (preferred) is marked Active, then click on HD to highlight it, from Disk tab select Rebuild MBR, Apply. If Windows 7 doesn't start and you restored Active flag, run Startup Repair 3 Separate Times.

If these all fail you can copy out your data using your Windows 7 DVD or Repair CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or Paragon Rescue CD.
System Repair Disc - Create

Then run Factory Recovery from its partition or disks you made or order from Tech Support, or find a Windows 7 installation DVD to clean reinstall using Product Key on COA sticker: Clean Reinstalling Windows 7

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:

This is usually what I do in that situation; it may work:

To do this, follow these steps: - Get your Vista installation DVD and pop it into your drive.
- Then restart your computer.
- Press a key when you are prompted.
- Select a language, a time, a currency, and a keyboard or another input method, and then click Next
- Click Repair your computer
- Click the operating system that you want to repair, and then click Next
- In the System Recovery Options dialog box, click Command Prompt
- Type bootrec /rebuildbcd and then press ENTER

• If Bootrec runs successfully, it will present you with the installation path of a Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type Yes . A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.

• If Bootrec cannot locate any [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue !important]missing [COLOR=blue !important]Windows[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it. To do this, type the following commands in the order shown below: (Remember to press ENTER after each command)

Hi sat_raj
There are several avenues that can pursued but I would start with the following:
Try a Fix MBR. To do this, press the F8 key at the Dell Logo on startup, select repair my computer, select your keyboard layout and language, click on your user name and sign in, at the System Recover options, click on command prompt, enter the following bootrec.exe /FixMbr and press Enter. If successful, you should be greeted with the message The operation completed successfully. Then type bootrec.exe /FixBoot and press enter, after this completes restart your computer.
You can also access the System Recovery Options using the Windows Disc, put in the disc, turn on computer, press the F12 key at the Dell logo, select cd/dvd and press enter. This will start the CD, when it comes to the screen to Install Now, do not click on that, but click on Repair my computer, on the left bottom corner to access the System recovery options.

Hi guys hope you can help me.

I have my friends Acer 5920 Laptop with me running windows vista. It was displaying the blue screen of death at start up, Stop Code 0x0000C1F5. I successfully used Linux systemrescuecd to erase the TxfLog file and enable a system reboot.

Startup Repair then started and has now been hanging for hours and hours with no sign of anything happening. Is there any way of formatting the hard drive and starting again as the vista boot disk hangs on black and even safemode wont start.

Im not hugely knowledgeable on what info you all need so let me know.

Thanks in advance


A:Vista Startup Repair Error?

Hi Mark,

When the white "Acer" screen comes up at the very start, hold down the Alt key and press F10. You only have about 3 seconds do do that while the white screen is there. That will take you into the Acer eRecovery partition and restore Vista. Be warned it will erase **everything** on the hard drive.

If your friend has data on the hard drive then you need to get that off first. Use a USB drive enclosure and another computer to do that.

So. It all began when I shut down my computer, since itunes was giving me trouble. It installed an update, and then shut down without a problem. But. When I restarted it, it told me in a strange font, "Windows is loading files..." and then took me to a screen that gave me the option to Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally. Either option brings me to the same message, "Your computer was unable to start. Startup Repair is checking your system for problems..." Which would be fine with me, if it ever left that screen again. But no matter what I try, it never gets past that point. Sometimes it tells me that it cannot be fixed. And then proceeds to do NOTHING. Or, once, it offered to restore my system. Since this is the exact same thing that happened to my last computer, along with a bunch of other stuff that contributed to its eventual demise at the computer repair shop, I have nothing I NEED stored on there, so I said yes. But, that did nothing. Now it's back to the exact same nauseating screen that tells me it's searching for problems. I looked it up on the internet, and found that it has happened to many other people, but no matter where I go, no one seems to have a straight answer as to WHY it happened, or how to fix it. Is it a virus? Is it an error? How, if it's possible, do I get back into my computer? What did I do to cause this? When I either get a new computer, or fix this one, how do I keep it from happening YET AGAIN???

My laptop is a Gateway with 1Gb RAM. It has had problems for several months where it will just reboot. Now, however, when I try to boot it, the machine displays the screen that says that there is a problem and asks me to start the Startup repair. If I choose this, the repair runs for several minutes, then says, "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically."

I had this same problem a few months ago, and took it to a PC repair guy. He didn't even charge me because he said the problem was so simple to fix, it only took him a couple minutes. He told me what he did, but I have forgotten what it was, and I can't get in touch with him again.

Any suggestions on what I can do so as not to lose my data would be greatly appreciated. There is just 1 file on this system that was created last week that I can't afford to lose. Anything else is not critical, but I do need to get this one file.

Thanks, in advance, for the help.

Recently I have been unable to start my Toshiba laptop up. When I start the laptop up I am given two options: "Start windows normally" or to "launch start up repair" - niether of the options work and I am forced to turn the power off again. When I choose "Start Windows normally", I am greeted by a blank black screen which shows no signs of changing. If I choose the start up repair it begins to load files and stops for a brief second, then brings me onto a screen which reads the following:

"Windows has encountered a problem communicating with a device connected to your computer.

This error can be caused by unplugging a removable storage device such as an external USB drive while the device is in use, or by faulty hardware such as a hard drive or CD-ROM drive that is failing. Make sure any removable storage is properly connected and then restart your computer.

If you continue to receive this error message, contact the hardware manufacturer.

Status: Oxc00000e9

Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred."

As far as I know there is nothing which is occupying the USB drives or the CD-ROM drive, so I'm really confused.

By the way, I'm running Windows Vista.

Any help is appreciated.

Hey guys,

Yesterday I brought a new modem/router, the Billion 7800N. I hooked it up and everything worked perfectly once setup. I turned my computer off and went out but when I came home and turned it on, it just sat at "Loading Windows".

I've tried all the Startup Repair options, I used Startup Repair, System Restore, Command Prompt, but none of those fixed the problem. Looking like my last resort I went with a format and fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64. Everything went very smooth, so I installed the necessary drivers and basic programs and restarted the computer so that I can make an .img of C: drive. Well the computers starting up, gets to "Loading Windows" and just sits there, just like before.

How can this happen again with basically nothing installed?
Could the Billion modem/router be affecting my computer, causing this error?

A:Startup Repair Error Code: 0x490


Are you able to boot in Safe Mode?

If so, open an elevated Command Prompt and type:

sfc /scannow

to test and attempt a repair on your system files.

I use a Billion 7401VGPR3 and don't have this issue, so I think it might be something else. I see a lot of references to this code in relation to the Master Boot Record, but I don't know much about this error.

Perhaps a more experienced memeber might be able to confirm this, and/or offer better advice.

my laptop crashed two days ago whilst browsing the internet and i had to force a shut down, when i restarted my laptop it gave me two options, one being the startup repair and the other being to start windows normally.

neither work.

the startup repair sends me to a blank blue windows screen and after 2 hours of waiting i abandoned that and attempted to just start windows, which loops me back round to the startup error page.

i have searched for a fix and therefore attempted to boot my laptop in safe mode which loops back round and i have also tried to use the last known good configuration which sends me to a green windows screen and again after hours of waiting nothing is gained.

My last move has been to try and create a repair disk through my friends laptop but after fiddling with the boot order to finally get it to even recognise the disc is doesnt work. i assume its because i made the disc through a windows 8 machine and not a windows 7 one.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, this is super frustrating and i have ran out of ideas

A:startup repair error on samsung np300

Is the HDD detected in BIOS setup? If not try reinstalling it to get it detected. If it won't be then you'll need to either slave it to another PC to test the drive, or replace it.

Otherwise everything possible that can be done is here for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

Note that repairs work best from disks which are all provided in the tutorial, as well as flash stick alternatives.

Hello, my computer has been working flawlessly for the past year and has had no problems at all working currently with windows 7. Until two days ago when i was just browsing the internet and my computer froze and the whole screen tinted pink. I tried moving the mouse, typing in letters, but it was frozen. I was forced to power button to get the computer to shut off because i was unable to do anything. Upon restarting my computer it asked me if i wanted to run windows normally or use safe mode, so i run it normally and then on the load screen where you see the windows 7 logo it freezes every time. The computer stays frozen for about 10 minutes and then it restarts itself and comes up with the Startup Repair program only to say that windows cannot repair this computer automatically. Here is the problem details.

A few days ago I was going to put in a new HDD and I accidentally tore the HDD connector in two pieces trying to get it out... Is it possible to put it back together?

The laptop is really old (but works surprisingly well with Xubuntu) so if I can't repair the connector, I might as well throw it away because the lowest price I've found for a new connector is $70, which is just too much to spend on such an old laptop.

The laptop is Toshiba Tecra 550CDT.

The connector broke about where the black line is drawn.

Hi, this is my first thread post. This morning my laptop worked fine and I was browsing around the net when my desktop decided that it was high time it froze. So I did a hard reset as I have done many times before on many different computers. Only when I rebooted, my system shut itself down immediately after the first boot up screen.

Eventually (miraculously), after around 10 hard resets, it got past that screen to the windows logo screen, and got stuck for around 10min there, and then got through to the login screen. When I log in, I get a blank screen with only my cursor showing up. I read around that you can display the desktop again by ending the explorer.exe process and restarting it in the task manager, which unfortunately didn't work for me. Rebooting again does exactly the same, and when I open up the repair screen by pressing F8, only safe mode seems to actually load anything (so I guess there's not too much wrong with my harddrive since I can access everything through safe mode).

Both startup repair and Safe Mode with Networking give me exactly the same error:

"Your PC needs to be repaired

File: \Windows\system32\winload.efi

Hi guys.

I'm new to this forum and I ask you for help.

Yesterday I repartitioned my 1TB HDD, because there was almost no space on C:. I tried to clean it with programs such as CCleaner or so, even manually (for ex. Temp folder) but it was still so little space that I decided to make C: partition bigger. So I downloaded EASEUS Partition Manager (more or less this was the name of the program) and shrunk my E: partition form approx. 912GB to 850GB. I also moved the whole data on this partition (I just used the slider in this program - I slided it max. to the right) and then chose an option to enlarge my C: partition. I didn't slide anything here, I just stretched the slider to the right so that C: got bigger by 50GB, so now it is approx. 100GB and there is 50GB of free space.

Then the program asked me to reboot and it performed a repartitioning process. It was completed successfully, BUT Windows just won't startup now. I now always get the message with a 0xc0000225 error if I try to boot it from HDD. So I searched for it up on the Internet and found that it can be repaired with a Startup Repair utility. After several failures to run this utility I finaly managed to run it today, after several hours of battle (it was just the boot order in BIOS) and started it.

I chose the first option (Startup repair) and let it run. It now says it can't solve the problem and if I click a little arrow to show the details of the problem, there is a big text saying:

I have a desktop running Windows 7 that will not boot into Windows. During bootup, it blue screens and reboots so fast that I cannot read the error message.  Upon trying to do a startup repair, it fails with message

Also, it blue screens when trying to boot into safe mode. I have tried a system restore but that fails. I've also tried copying the backup registry from the RegBak folder. Still no luck.
Is it possible to determine what driver is causing the problem and remove it?  I'm trying to avoid a Windows reload since there's no image backup of the computer and some of the software cannot be replaced.
