Windows 7 will not load - tried REPAIR and still won't work

Q: Windows 7 will not load - tried REPAIR and still won't work

Can someone please help me? I am close to tearing my hair out!

My laptop went down about a week ago. I have tried startup repair with the disk - the startup repair worked after I reset the BIOS settings to default. Restarted the computer and it started checking E: Recovery - got to 61% and then froze again. Back to startup repair and this is the details:

Last successful boot time: 1/19/2013 12:18:39 AM (GMT)
Number of repair attempts: 16

Session details

System Disk = \Device\Harddisk0
Windows Directory = C:\Windows
AutoChk Run = 0
Number of root causes = 1


I have no idea where to turn next - I really don't want to have to completely wipe my computer and reinstall windows and I can't upgrade unless I am actually in Windows - which of course I'm not.

If anyone has any ideas or can help in any way I would be eternally grateful!!!

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 will not load - tried REPAIR and still won't work

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.)

A:system repair wont work windows wont load

Might be a failing Hard drive. Get to your bios and see if there is any diagnostics there to do a hard drive test. On some motherboards its delete on others its F2. If there is no diagnostics on the bios i would make a USB bootable diagnostics and do that.
I just had the same problems and found out the hard way that it was a hard drive.

I have been running windows vista fine, on my pc. Until yesterday, when they were apparently worms (or virus's or something I don't know, my brain is fried trying to fix this thing). I successfully removed them with AVG (how the got there in the first place - I don't know). The pc worked fine, everything was fine, until I came in from work.

Vista would not load. Screen goes black way before any vista sign comes up. Monitor goes off, "no input signal". So, I try it again, and it says windows failed to load, blah blah blah start-up repair, or start windows normally.

I hit start up repair - it doesn't do ANYTHING. Windows normally, does nothing either.

So, after much going mental. I found out how to go into safe mode (I have a mesh pc and apparently f8 does not work in that). So, I try to get into safe mode from that, DOES NOT WORK.

And, apparently I've to "repair your computer" (no ****) so I can get to command prompt and chkdsk, but now the problem is, IT STILL GIVES ME THE SAME START UP MENU.

A:vista will not load..start up repair does not work, HELP!

You're in a bind. What has happened most likely is that AVG cleaned the infections but those infections were tied to Windows binaries and/or registry keys and those went down with em. Without a Vista recovery disc of some sort to replace the removed/modified binaries or repair the registry by any means, you have next to no chance of resolving this aside from a complete install of an OS. Since you don't have the disc, it's going to mean you coughing up money for a copy, unless you can borrow a disc from someone to perform the recovery (or start using Linux). In the meantime, you can use UBCD to start backing up data and perhaps even perform some hardware testing to ensure this isn't a coincidence and that it's hardware that puttered out on you and not Windows corruption (doubtful though).

I dont know if this is posted in the right area but I'm so desperate to get my laptop working its unreal.
First it started off with my laptop crashing, I had totally forgot it needed to do a windows update and turned off my laptop in hopes that it would work properly.
After that my laptop has not been working. The machine turns on and gives me two options. Start windows normally or do a repair. Upon starting windows normally, it loads so far before sending me back to the two options of start windows normally or repair. On the second time I clicked repair. My laptop then goes so far before presenting me with a blue screen that is usually the screen where my accounts are. The cursor still moves but it loads no further even after leaving it an hour. I decided to make a repair disk, hoping that the problem was because of windows. the disk loads, gives me a choice on the keyboard language then does nothing. I honestly have no idea what to do, I want to keep all the files safe on my computer as I havent backed them up and I have worked so hard on the projects. someone please help

A:windows 7 refuses to load and system repair wont load

Do a hardware/software reset with your BIOS:Shut down and turn off the computer.
Unplug the computer from the wall or surge protector (then remove the battery if it is a laptop).
"Remove the computer from any port replicator or docking station, disconnect
cables to printers or devices such as external monitors, USB memory sticks or SD cards, headset or external speakers, mouse or auxiliary keyboard, turn off WIFI and Bluetooth wireless devices." (Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues HP Pavilion dv5000 Notebook PC series - HP Customer Care (United States - English))
Hold down the power button for 30 seconds. This closes the circuit and ensures all
power from components is drained to clear the software connections between the BIOS
and hardware and clear any corruption in the temporary memory.
(If it is a laptop, plug the battery back into the laptop and then) Plug the computer back into the wall. Do not reconnect any unnecessary peripherals; monitor, keyboard,
and mouse should suffice and be the only peripherals reconnected.
Turn it on to reinitialize the software connections between the BIOS and hardware

After doing those steps, clear your CMOS by entering the BIOS (see your system manual for steps to enter the BIOS), going to the EXIT screen, and loading setup/optimized defaults.

Backstory (skip if you need)
I'm fixing someones laptop, It was slow and taking 30 minutes to startup, i did the usually virus scan and restarted, then it was stuck in an auto repair loop. I used a windows 8 Install CD from microscoft. None of the options in it would work, install (key doesnt match) reset (missing partition), image recovery (cant find an image), restore (no restore point), etc.
 
Used command prompt, did stuff like bootrec, bcdedit, diskpart, and chkdsk. After it ran chkdsk it finally loaded windows. I reset/reinstalled the OS completely. Fixed, restarted, running smooth. Owner said it was working great for a day, then after turning it back on it was in an auto repair loop.
 
Now
It's stuck in a preair loop, I can't even boot from the 8 CD! Have it configured in the bios, it shows the the blue windows logo then the screen goes black for 3 minutes and a blue screen flashes for 1 second saying  "Your PC ran into a problem and need to restart. Collecting some info (0% complete) search online for error: 0x000021a"
 
The weird thing is, Windows 7 disks boot fine, but it's "not compatible". And if I physically remove the HDD, it will boot into the windows 8 CD. So I put the HDD back in (while still at the command prompt) and it wont take my commands in related to the C: . I get a "System cannot find the drive specified"

UPDATE:
 
I got a windows 8.1 disk made and it allowed me yo boot from the CD, but it's SLOOOOW, it takes minutes to load reset or w.e (none of them still work), or open the command prompt.
 
I ran chkdsk /f /r /x but it didnt help. chkdsk /r ends with:
"A disk read error occurredcc0000185
Insufficient disk space to fix the Usn Journal $J data stream."
 
Before when I ran it, I'm pretty sure it let me restart and booted into windows, not now.
 
Next I tried bootrec.
/fixmbr - succesful
/fixboot - succesfull
/rebuildBCD - Total identified Windows installations: 0
/scanOS - Total identified Windows installations: 0
 
Next bcdedit
Nothing worked "The boot configuration data store could not be opened. The requested system device cannot be found."
 
Next sfc /scannow
"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and run sfc again."
Then sfc /SCANNOW /OFFBOOTDIR=c:\ /OFFWINDIR=d:\Windows
"Windows resources protection didnt find integrity violations"
 
BCDBoot c:\WindowsFailure when attempting to copy boot files
 
Next diskpart - but I forgot what I did before that may have worked. All i can remember is I had to select a disk or volume, and do something with it.

I have a Sony Viao with Win 7 Home Premium and I just deleted some form of Trojan with MS Security Essentials and then I ran windows updates before I restarted the machine. Windows update installed some security updates along with Service pack 1 and IE9. Now the computer will not load Windows. It goes straight to the startup repair but cannot fix the problem. There is not restore points other that when SP1 was installed and I gives an error every time I try to restore it. I can get to a command prompt and I have tried to run sfc /scannow but it tells me there is a system repair pending which requires a reboot and then does nothing. I also tried check disk(just as a last chance) but that didn't do anything. Is there any other way that I can repair windows without re-installing windows?

Hi,
I have windows xp on a 3 year old machine, intel processor, asus motherboard.
I had some pretty nasty viruses on it and i installed a free antivirus which was finding quite a few viruses, anyway i found i couldnt restart in safe mode as i wanted to run virus scanner there as i noticed as soon as i turned the net on my computer went unusable. It was getting stuck on mup.sys when loading safe mode, i heard that if you ran the windows xp disk and selected repair you could disable the mup.sys and run safe mode then run antivirus. Problem was my comp said a newer version of xp was running, so i read that you should uninstall sp2, so i did that and it needed the xp cd to replace files after uninstalling. Then i rebooted with the cd in to start up repair after altering the bios the load the cd first before the harddrive, the cd started but stopped then the black windows screen loads there is a screen flash and it reboots over and over. I tried changing the bios to load back to the harddrive as it was before and it still doesnt load up, its totally stuffed. What can i do now? I will reinstall windows if its my only choice its just ill loose everything, how can i boot from the cd it doesnt seem to work?

Hi all,
Lately my computer has been acting really strange via startup.

I got a WP7 Phone for Christmas, and installed Zune so I can sync to/from the phone (and Zune was/is a nightmare!). That was all sweet. The next day I started up my computer but it would not finish loading. It would display starting windows, with the clip playing and still continuing, but after 10 minutes or so it would not go past it. I launched startup repair, and it detected an issue on boot and still didn't work. I went into safe mode, and noticed that the day before Windows had installed an update. I uninstalled it and it fixed it. I booted up my computer fine after that.

However, the next day, it did the same thing. I went into startup repair, and it couldn't detect anything wrong with it (I created a restore point the day before incase I needed to do it again). I went into safe mode, and disabled Zune from starting up on boot. I restarted my PC thinking that it might be fixed, but it wasnt. I started up startup recovery again, and it said 'Unspecified changed to sstem configuration might have caused the problem. repair action: system restore'

The system restore didn't work. I went into safe mode again, had a look around, and looked for any more latest installed updates, incase it updated again, but the latest update was last month. I restarted my PC, and it still didn't boot. I tried booting up in debugging mode, and I was able to log in, but shortly after my compute... Read more

Used to have win 7, upgraded to 10 a couple weeks ago.

Randomly yesterday the computer turned off. I turned it back on and it said it shut down incorrectly and it was going to go through the repair process. It kept going through a loop and would never complete that process. It gave me some other options such as system restore which I tried but it could not find any restore points. Then I tried another option which was the last viable one, unfortunately I don't recall what it was, but I remember it implied to me that it would be rolling back my operating system to Windows 7 instead of 10, 7 being my previous OS.
I let this run over night and I came back to it in the morning and it was still sitting there. I turned the computer off and then back on and it automatically went back into that process.

I am unsure if my hard drive is faulty or if the OS is corrupted or something.

Can I do something in BIOS to bypass this and get into windows? Should I reinstall windows on this harddrive, or buy a new one?

Thankyou for any feedback and information.

Put DVD/CD on top of BOOT (boot device order) in BIOS. If you do that and start from DVD it gives you a blank screen? With or without cursor? Is cursor blinking?
If you remove the DVD (still same bot order) and restart computer it boots from harddisk?

Howdy everyone....I'm working on a Samsung 305e5a laptop and I'm getting severely frustrated, so maybe someone here can help point me towards the tools I need to figure this out.

WIndows won't load. On startup, I get the screen that says a previous run of Windows has failed to load propperly and lets me try to Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally.

If I start Windows normally, I get to the windows logo and it freezes.

If I try to boot into safe mode, it loads up to a certain file then just hangs there.

If I launch the startup repair, I get to a screen with a mouse cursor and pretty blue wall paper, but no repair/recovery utilities ever actually load.

If I use a Windows 7 Repair disc, I get the same thing. The same pretty blue wallpaper but no window full of recovery options.

If I hit F4 on the Samsung splash screen to try to load from the recovery partition, I get a DIFFERENT pretty green wall paper that says "Please wait..." and again, no tools ever load. Ever

If I use a windows 7 installation CD that I have sitting around from another computer, it at least loads to a window where I get the options to install windows or repair windows. If I select repair, the window vanishes and I'm once again left with pretty blue wallpaper and a mouse cursor. No recovery tools or options.

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

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

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

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

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

Thanks

Hi all and thank you for reading my post.
I have a Dell Inspiron 600m with Windows XP Professional and a virus caused the blue screen followed by the black screen. I did a Windows XP repair, and it came back up, but the wireless Intel Pro set lan 2100 3a mini PCA adapter is not working. I tried to upload the driver but still nothing. Device manager says it's working properly, but it comes up as not-associated, no current SSID, no signal (from my Netgear router)
Also my ethernet controller is not there anymore. Also tried to upload it from a saved file I uploaded from Dell website, but it tells me everything uploaded fine and files were unzipped, yet it does not show up under Device Manager.
So right now, I have no way to connect to the internet to get windows sp2.
Is there a windows file that I could be missing that could have messed up these devices from working properly (other than drivers)
Thanks for your help
 

A:Wireless lan does not work after Windows XP repair

Install the chipset and then the networking drivers. Probably best to use your Resources/Drivers CD since you apparently are pre-SP2. Else use your Service Tag for easier searching and get them from Dell's web site.

If needed rename mbam.exe to something else like firefox.exe Then see if Malwarebytes will run.
So you tried to do a "repair install"? I would have deleted the malware registry startup entries with a BART PE boot CD or ERD Commander. It's a complex process though.

Hi trickshot63 What kind of Registry issues do you have? Depending of what they are, using a tool like Windows Repair All-In-One could be more dangerous than anything.

Hello all,

I attempted to restart my computer after a Trojan deletion and was met with a BSOD unbootable boot drive.


From there I've tried everything, startup repair will not work, the windows 7cd won't work (repair or a fresh install) and safe mode won't work.
1. Startup repair gets stuck on the blue background of the login screen.
2. The win 7 cd repair alternately does the same as above or gets to the first screen then says that there is no windows partition and spends forever searching for it.
3. Win 7 install stuck on the setup is starting part
4. Safe mode gets stuck after loading classpnp.sys
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

A:Windows won't boot, all repair tools will not work. Please help!

Hi,

What errors do you get when you try to perform a clean install?

Copy any critical user data files off the drive using this:

Hi, and thank you for your time.

Guess I'll start from the beginning. My laptop (Asus x401u windows 7 home premium 64bit) was abruptly disconnected from it's power source, and I haven't been able to get into windows since. Upon startup i'm sent to the windows error recovery screen with two options available: "Launch startup repair (recommended)" and "Start windows normally".

Upon selecting the first option windows attempts to load files ultimately resulting in a black screen with the cursor appearing several minutes later, requiring a hard shutdown (holding the power button).

Upon selecting the second option windows tries to start, but ultimately fails, ending with a quick flash of a blue error screen (pic related), then reboots, taking me back to the windows error recovery screen.

Now, after having no luck with those two methods, I went to the advanced boot options, which offers the following 12 selections:

1. repair your computer(which attempts to load files and ends in another black screen),

2. Safe mode (which attempts loading files but gets stuck at "\ Windows\ System32\ drivers\CLASSPNP.SYS", then reboots to windows error recovery screen,

3. Safe mode with networking (same result as safe mode),

4. Safe mode with command prompt (again, same result),

5. Enable boot logging (haven't tried it),

6. Enable low res video (640x480) (seems irrelevant),

Has anyone tested the Windows 8 System Repair Disc described in How to Create a "System Repair Disc" (CD/DVD) in Windows 8? Here's what happened when I restarted my Windows 8 laptop with that CD in the optical drive:

The disc started to spin and I saw the message "Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." I pressed the space bar. The disc was apparently being read. Then after a minute or two, the computer restarted and again I saw ""Press any key to boot from CD or DVD..." and again I pressed the space bar and again the disc was read and then my computer rebooted again and...this repeated several times until I finally gave up and let the computer boot normally.

Yes, the BIOS is configured to boot from the optical drive first.

Makes no difference which key I press - space bar or any other key.

I tested this disc on the same computer I used to make the disc.

When I turn on my computer, I get the following message:

"We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have caused this.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent settings that worked.

If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the Power or Reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows
Normally..."

When I start normally or with last known configuration, it goes to the Windows XP loading screen (black screen that just says Windows XP and has a bar for loading) and stays there forever. When I start in safe mode, the screen shows some writing about partitioning files for a while and then just stops and stays at this screen forever.

I have seen people on various forums with whose computers give them the same message, though the results of their choosing safe mode or normal are different (but also unsuccessful in starting the computer). The advice given to them was to repair reinstall Windows XP.

So I tried that, I booted from the Windows XP CD and I chose repair reinstall. The bottom of the screen said a few things, then said examining startup environment and remained there forever.

AmericanVet Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums!Sorry, but the "repair" disk you made can only be used to make minor repairs to the boot loader and Windows.  It can NOT be used to reinstall Windows.  For that, you need something known as HP Recovery Media. HP Recovery Media is a set of DVDs and a CD, or USB stick, that will erase the hard drive (removing all data, settings, and applications, reinstall the original OS, drivers, and some HP Utilities. In some cases, you may be able to order a USB stick instead of disks. You have to order these from HP; they can not be downloaded.You can look online for Recovery Media starting with the linked paged: http://support.hp.com/us-en/driversOnce there, input your Product name or number. On your Software and Drivers Download page, select your Operating System and and Version. Click "Update". If HP Recovery Media is available for your machine, down near the bottom of the page, you will see an entry for Order Recovery Media-CD/DVD/USB.

Hello,

I've been having trouble with my Vista home premium pc.

I downloaded the service pack 2 for vista. I only ran a fix (not sure what the fix was) to get rid of something that kept showing up on my anti virus software.

Anyways while the fix was working it restarted my computer. The service pack installed 2 of 3. After it installed 2 it started again presenting me with my problem.

The windows recovery screen shows up and gives me the option of starting normally of running the automatic repair. I've tried the auto repair and it doesnt work. I went onto the advanced options after that which gives me the option of system restore, command prompt, complete restore.

System restore doesnt work as it says no restore point has been created.

I've tried going into safe mode and that doesnt work. Last known configuration also doesnt work. I really dont know what to do and REALLY dont want to lose my files again!.

If anyone could help i'd be much appreciated. I've been without the pc for about a week now and didnt realise how much i rely on it.

Thanks again in advance.

Hi,

So I'm going to try to be as specific as possible. About a month ago, I finally updated to Windows 10 from Windows 7 on a Sony Vaio laptop. It seemed to work fine, but I started getting an error every time Windows would start up or if I would "awake" the computer from Sleep mode. The error was "please insert disk into removable disk E:" I never had this error before. Apparently, this drive was my SD card and I've never even used that drive at all. Other than being an annoyance though, this error didn't seem to have any impact so I rolled with it for the time being figuring I could fix it later or just deal with it.

Well, after about two weeks, my computer froze up, so I tried to restart, and it wouldn't startup again. I would turn it on and it would just go to a black screen with a white arrow and stop. Sometimes it would take me to a black screen and say "Operating System Not Found." After several failed startup attempts, Windows seemed to take me to some diagnostic screen and I went through several prompts following whatever advice Windows 10 was giving me to fix the startup error. After several failed attempts, somehow miraculously I got it started again. Quickly, in fear of this happening again, I decided to revert back to Windows 7 hoping this would fix any problems. I let it run over night and the next morning, the computer was back to Windows 7 as normal. I was able to use the laptop as normal and there were no ... Read more

Hello, this is my first time posting here and I'm at a loss for what to do, so I'm going to be ridiculously thorough in my explanation of the problem.

My computer is a Dell XPS 8300. The only hardware change since I bought it is the video card, from a Radeon 5450 to an Nvidia GT520.
My specs are:
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
Processor: Intel i5 (can't access the specifics)
RAM: 6 GB
HDD Space: 1 TB

For the past couple of days, my computer has been taking longer than usual to run programs. (This may or may not have anything to do with the problem.) When I did a hard reboot, the Windows symbol appeared as normal, but it was there for longer than normal. Then, a blue screen flashed, fast enough for me to not be able to read what was on it, and then the screen went black.

I rebooted it after that, and it gave me the option to use Startup Repair or to start windows normally. Starting windows normally results in the same issue.

When I use startup repair, it spends some time running, then has the error, "Startup repair cannot repair this problem automatically". The problem details are as such:

If you have a Windows DVD you can boot off of that and choose Repair Your Computer.

I upgraded from Windows 7 Home Premium(OEM) to Windows 7 Professional using Windows Anytime Upgrade. Since the upgrade is done online, with no DVD provided, is there any way to do a Repair Install? I allready tried the OEM RE-install disk, and setup won't allow the install. It is an install DVD, not an image restore disk.

A:Will Repair Install work with Windows Anytime Upgrade?

You have a Premium locked DVD which now needs to be Professional.

The solution is to unlock all versions in the installer, which can be done by:

downloading the DVD files to your desktop,

editing the Sources folder to delete the ei.cfg file,

then recompiling the files into an ISO using this tutorial: Bootable ISO - Create from Installation Files

Then use ImgBurn at 4x speed with Verify to burn your DVD. Never fails.

You should now be able to do your repair, or even clean reinstall from boot with that DVD by choosing Pro since you have a pro key, although I would def make a system image backup in case Anytime keys prove to not work in regular installs.

So I attempted using an ISO with the windows 8.1 professional. Tried everything I did above, and still nothing.
