Preferred Solution: (42) startup error

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 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.

so everything was fine when my laptop started to become very slow and i used to get the BSOD very often so i decided to recover the system to the initial state . i did that and everything was fine , then i updated the windows 7 service pack 1 and finished the installation and rebooted my computer , the start-up at least took half an hour at that time and the service pack 1 installation showed "not successful " i tried to again to update the service pack1 which showed 73.6mb - 892.6mb so i updated it again and again the same thing happened.

then i researched and found out that there is some problem with the windows service pack 1 and some daemon tools driver sptd.sys is also involved or something so i uninstalled daemon tools as well as windows 7 service pack 1 from control panel .

now the system is back to its normal speed once it starts up fully , and unless i switch it off there is no problem , but when i restart the system it takes at least half an hour to start up sometimes more than that , sometimes it never starts and i see the BSOD after the welcome screen with error 0x000000f4 and the physical memory dump fails with error 0xc0000010 .

i had also found something about minidump files which i didnt understand anything about , but i still tried to find the folder but i couldnt find the minidump folder in c:/windows/ so i figured maybe i didnt have a minidump folder.

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.

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

Hi to all,

Around 5 days ago, some sort of error, cropped up while installation of Kaspersky Anti Virus on my laptop, and after that everytime, I turned the system on, I faced the blue screen error.

Then, i formatted my laptop and reinstalled Windows XP. It was running fine for two days. Suddenly, it started giving error "Logonui.exe application error" at startup displaying something similar to "The instruction at '0x0037149c' referenced memory" something.. It had to buttons - Cancel (for debugging) and Ok.. I pressed cancel/ok/close button. It always cropped up. Until after a series of pressing buttons, my log on screen came. After logging in, all my icons and taskbar gone. So, i opened Windows Task Manager and run "explorer.exe". After everything came up, Some Data Execution Prevention error cropped up. Whenever i tried clicking "Close Message", it always came up again with a separate window for the "Send Error Report to Microsoft" dialog box.

Whenever I connected to internet, the link under my Internet started blinking very fast. I even left it without any internet application open, but it still went on. I saw the properties window of my connection. It went on and on. And in return, everything went slow. Internet surfing and downloading. And one major problem occurred that, whenever I leave my internet open for a short while, it shows the blue screen of error and restarts.

This is a family member's laptop. It is a Dell Inspirion N4110 running Win 7 Home Premium x64
They gave it to me complaining that the shutdown button restarts the computer and will not actually shut it down.
So I checked its preferences, they were fine. I went into the registry and changed the value from 1 to 0. That didn't work. (I changed it back)

I noticed on start up there is an error (it still pops up) that says there was a problem starting c:\users\blah\AppData\Roaming\homsp.dll The specified module could not be found.

The I decided to run a virus scan. Their McAfee had expired so I uninstalled it along with some odd software from a company called SysTweak or something and installed AVG and Malware Bytes. Those full scans came back clean except AVG found something and removed it but it wasn't of any significance to this issue.

I decided to check Windows Update, it wouldn't run. So I tried to restart it in Services and it wasn't there. After some piddling I found a program that supposedly fixed the problem for you. It was called Fix WU. I got it Softpedia. After running it the Windows Update service was back. I was able to install some updates and thought all was well. Then there were more updates. I tried to install them and got an error 80246008.

I'm in no way a expert on such things but I did notice something you found.
SysTweak

Their is no way of knowing all the things a program like that has done. If I had to repair this computer I would start with a repair install.

Give this a good read.

Then I would install MSE for a anti virus and use the built in Windows Firewall.

Little note: If you didn't use McAfee's online removal tool their could of been left overs of McAfee on the computer when you installed AVG and that would be just more problems.
Any anti virus program you remove I recommend using their own removal tool found online.

Nothing is running poorly on my computer but I am starting to think that there was something that happened and my computer was able to remove it but maybe not all of it or there are damaged files from it? I am not super computer saavy but I do pretty well and can definately can follow good directions. I would really appreciate any help with this that anyone can provide!

When the machine would normally be going to the Windows startup screen, instead it shows two lines of print separated by a blank line, white print on a black screen:

Boot error: 0-00


Select partition to boot, 0-3:_

the underline at the end of the second line is a flashing cursor. It remains with this showing until I enter any character, and hit 'RETURN', whereupon the normal boot process resumes. It doesn't matter if I enter one of the four requested digits or something else, any character will do. While this seems simple enough, it worries me - I don't like partition problems, especially since I'v seen Windows 7 repeatedly simultaneously convert normal partitions on up to three drives at once into completely unreadable garbage that no partitioning software can read. While there seems to be no consequence from this behavior, I've become very skittish since witnessing what Win 7 can so completely foul up. I've had this boot error before, and the only thing that removed it was completely repartitioning and reformatting the drive involved. Does any body recognise this?

Today I got my new laptop and decided to dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 on it. After several hours of partitioning and researching, I ran into many issues. Eventually I decided to boot Ubuntu from a USB drive, open up Gparted, and delete any and all Linux partitions while expanding the size of the Windows partition back to normal.

Unfortunately, in the process, I must have made an error, because now upon startup I get the "bootmgr is missing" error. I don't have a recovery CD nor does my laptop have a CD drive, so that's out of the question, but I know for a fact my Hard Drive has a recovery partition on it. I want to restore my computer back to normal, keeping my old files if necessary. However, since I just got the computer today, I clearly don't have anything on there I can't afford to lose, so if I must do a factory reset I will.

Hi

Deleting the Ubuntu partition deleted the GRUB bootloader, which gives error 17. To fix it, you need to rewrite the MBR so that it no longer contains GRUB.

You will need an XP CD to do this. Boot from the CD, and at the first screen, press R to enter recovery console.

It will then ask you which install you want to log on to. Type in 1 and press enter. You may then need to enter the administrator password (Blank by default)

Now type in fixmbr and press enter. It will give you a warning about a possible loss of data, press Y to continue.

Then type exit to restart the PC.

Hope this helps you

I am building a computer, and i have gotten to the point of installing an OS. I installed Xp home edition, and there was no problem. But after it installed, when the computer rebooted, it said there was a disk read error. I tried clearing the CMOS to see if that helped, which it didn't. when that didnt work, i tried using Xpress System Recovery to see if that helped, but after using that, when it starts loading instead of a disk read error i get a message that looks like lB?.$lB?.$ when this comes up, there are no options listed, and the only command i can do is the control+alt+delete reboot. Did i loose my OS when i used system recovery, or something else?

A:Startup Error

I'm not familiar with Xpress System Recovery and can find no link...what is it? If it's a program, can you post a link to it?

What did you install XP from...an MS CD, OEM CD, exactly what?

Disk read error...did you format the hard drive, using an XP CD? Not sure why anyone would get a disk read error after formatting, unless the drive itself has some problems.

A few days ago there was a power cut (this means I can't use my laptop as it needs an external monitor). So I turned it off and left and when I came back it had started itself up and was running the startup error repair tool. It failed obviously so I went through all the tools and nada.
Starting it with normal settings gets it to the windows logo, it the does nothing for a while, crashes and restarts. The same goes for trying to load it in safe mode.
I followed this guide http://www.selectrealsecurity.com/fix-windows-startup/ none of it worked so it directed me here.
What do?

A:Startup error

I would run Startup Repair again...running it once sometimes doesn't do the job.

Hello everyone,
 
Upon starting up my account, Windows 7, I run into an error prompt indicating "C:\User\TJ\AppData\Local\Temp\CT3306061\plugins\TBVerifier.dll the specified module could not be found." I have conducted a scan via AVG and Malwarebytes, have corrected / removed all threats, and have restarted with the error still persisting. 

A:.dll error on startup.

In my own response this topic, it has been solved for me via the following method.
 
Installed CCleaner
 
Completed scan
 
Viewed Tools - > Start-up
 
Disabled Conduit entries.
 
Restarted and error was no longer present.

Ok, everytime the computer is restarted I get this message...

Could not load or run C:\Users\Cody\AppData\Local\Temp\wvutr.exe specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry.

How do I solve that problem? Most of the time a lot of new tabs open up when accessing the internet and Norton antivirus or google toolbar isn't stopping it. The computer also occasionally makes all the icons and the taskbar at the bottom disappear. This is a brand new computer Inspiron 531. One more thing, as I m typing this I usually have to go back and fix mistakes because the keyboard is not processing all the key presses. Thanks a bunch to anyone who can help!!

Hello,

When I start my computer up, instead of going through its process and bringing me to the sign on screen, it hangs up on a black screen with white writing. It says the following:

Phoenix--AwardBIOS v6. 00PG
Copyright (c) 1984--2007, Phoenix Technical, LTD

Copy disk(s) Fail (40)
Press F1 to continue, F2 to enter Setup

**Edited: (It may actually not actually say "Copy disk(s) Fail (40)" as I can only see "opy" as the word begins to the left of my monitor. I ASSUME it says "Copy."

I pressed F1 to continue and it brought me to sign on screen. Everything seems fine. I restarted and it did the same exact thing. I did a system restore to last week when it was not doing this and upon restart, it did the same thing. It just sits there until I press F1. Why is it doing this and what can I do to fix it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
H.
 

A:Please help with error on startup

I don't know about fixing the actual source of that, but you could go to BIOS setup and find an option reagarding continuing with or without pressing F1 when an error occurs. Change it. It should boot without asking to press F1.

Hello!
I just removed my SSD and put it in another computer.
but when the microsoft logo comes , then a blue screen and following error :
0x0000007b (0x80786b58 , 0xc000000034 , 0x00000000 , 0x00000000 )
it still works fine on previous computer but not in new pc!
 

A:Startup error

That's normal because the drivers from the first PC won't work on the 2nd PC unless they use the same or very similar hardware.

To use the SSD on the 2nd PC you will have to re-install Windows onto it when it's in the 2nd PC.
