windows vista not booting to logon screen, stops at loading bar screen

Q: windows vista not booting to logon screen, stops at loading bar screen

Hi guys, i use a sony vaio laptop, model VGN-NR11S/S, with windows vista home premium installed. I noticed that when booting with a CD in it, it stops at the loading bar screen (black screen) and does not continue booting except i remove the CD.

The problem now is that it does not boot beyond the loading bar screen anymore with or without a CD in the system. I cant use the system again, i need suggestions to get the system functioning. Thanks.

Computer: Not with the computer in question now, but here are some general specs. Running Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium on a pretty cheap desktop Emachine T series 3626 which came with 1g of ram and 150g of free space.

Issue: After loading bios, booting from hdd, computer loses power during vista loading screen. After 4-5 tries computer does boot successfully but can lose power again at any time with no obvious reasons as to why. Computer won't even boot in safe mode.

*Note. If the computer had been running recently however, the first boot attempt is usually successful.

I have been dealing with this problem for about a month and a half now. It seemed to pop up just after I made some changes to startup config., I copied Reason 4.0 (music production program) and World of Warcraft to my 500 gig external hard drive and have ran both those programs from either my internal HDD or external HDD and also save data on both. I may have changed bios/cmos during that time but it's unlikely. About a 6 months ago I overclocked my computer, and a year ago I installed an extra 500mb of ram. Also my tower tipped over about 2 months ago while it was running but the hit wasn't hard and the computer kept running normally. I wish I could tell you exactly when this issue started and whether or not it was before or after the changes I have made in the past month and a half but I can't remember. Anyways I've tired all sorts of solutions. Here is what I can remember doing.

It may be that someone didn't turn off the PC rather that it experienced a damaging event and shut down.Suggest you check the RAM - remove and reseat and try rebooting. If not successful your mother board may be damaged - nasty thought.There is also this site which may be relevant.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/831515If you can get your PC going suggest you check Event Viewer.

I'm going to try and describe the problem. I press the power button for my hp pavilion laptop and it starts as normally until I gets to a blue screen (not the BSOD i've learned about recently though). This blue screen has a logo of Windows XP which fades in after one second. I see my mouse pointer and I am able to move my mouse pointer but that is all. No matter how long I wait that blue screen with the windows xp logo stays there, not allowing me access to my desktop. This sux. Any suggestions or ideas? Know anything about this? My sister was the last one on it and I think that she caught a virus, I hope its something repairable though.

The other night I was on my computer when some strange things began to happen. Any program I tried to open would not open, and then the shortcuts on my desktop changed icons to the folder icon and the text dissapeared. I couldn't do anything, so I just figured it was some freak bug or something. I couldn't run any spyware or virus programs because it wouldn't let me open any programs. So I try to shut it down, and no matter how many times I clicked on shut down I still had to hold the button in to shut it off. Now, when I restart my computer, it seems to load just fine but when it gets to the blue screen with the windows xp logo on it, it just stops. The mouse cursor is there and I can move it but it never gets past the blue screen. I tired loading it in safe mode and it loads all the files up through mup.sys, which I have learned is the last file that loads so it is something after that. I have tried to start it using the last good configuration and still no luck. Any ideas? Do you think it is spyware/virus or just a corrupt system file?

Hello All,

First, let me tell you that I am clueless when it comes to windows NT (4.0 I think with SP6) and what is normal operation so I hope I don't sound too much like an idot. I just got an older Toshiba copier / printer unit that has an external computer for the printing function (SC-2 for those who know). The computer was working but now upon startup, the screen goes blue and displays some info about the system such as number of processors and amount of memory. Under that info, some dots appear indicating how the far the system is progressing. Then that's it. There is probably about 10 -15 dots and it never moves past that point but the hard drive keeps cycling. Reinstalling is currently not an option since I do not have the special software needed for the system to function. I have not done anything since I am really scared of screwing things up even worse.

If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you so much for the help!

But when "Starting Windows" , "Welcome" , "Logging out" or "Shutting down" texts appear, that little green loading (spinning) circle isn't animating. This is very annoying. It's animating for nothing even in windows updates.

How do i fix this issue without doing windows repair?

When you turn it on, it loads all the way up to the Windows loading screen where the progress bar loads/acts normally, but the next screen is black and does not progress past this.

What I've tried:
Booting in VGA mode. Same deal.
Booting in safe mode. Starts to load the drivers/sys files, then hangs and does not progress.
Booting with "Last known good configuration". Same deal.
Hooking it up to an external monitor and doing all of the above, no change in behavior (note: when the monitor is black it doesn't go inactive - i.e. the power light is green and not orange)

Pulled the hard drive and ran checkdisk. No bad sectors.

Booted with XP CD and started the Recovery Console to attempt using some commands, but am stopped due to this error:

Really not sure why it is doing this, can't even get on my computer. One last thing, if I wait long enough it will pop up with an error saying "LogonUI.exe - Application Error.

Someone I ran into recently said they had the same problem, and that it was caused by some form of virus / spyware / malware / what have you.

The first symptom was a while back when the Windows loading / booting screen seemed to go haywire with pulsation. Further down the line, video game cinematic scenes were affected similarly and basically make playing games impossible as the entire game's resolution gets FUBAR'd after a cut scene begins.

Other things are most likely effected, but these examples are the most apparent.

Note: In some cases, like Diablo II: LoD, repeatedly toggling the resolution can rectify this, begging the question of whether it's a graphic card / monitor problem or an actual infection.

I'm not exactly sure what the cause of this rather inconvenient problem is, or how to go about fixing it.

Anyone know what it all stems from, or have an educated guess?

Hi Guys , this is what Im trying to get resolved !

1. We are currently rolling out Windows Vista (Business) in my company
2. We have a company logon script , which runs after the user logs onto the pc , and displays current company news , as its maps drives and runs app fixes and some windows updates
3. On our current platform , Windows XP , the users can see this - however with Vista the "welcome screen" sits in there and hids the logon script , so users cannot see the "company news" etc.

Is there a way of removing the welcome screen , or indeed making the welcome screen transparent??? This is a big need for my company , and I need to get it working

I have been able to edit the weclome screen to get it changed to a picture of my choosing.

By the way , this is not the Welcome Center that appears after logon - and enabling/disabling fast user switching or turning off ctrl&alt&del to logon in the policies, as specified by some other forums does not work.

Hello,

I'm having 4 beeps that happen every time I boot my computer. I use Windows XP Home (I know its bad)

I've looked it up, and I believe it might be "System Timer Failure." I'm not sure though. Not sure at ALL. There's no error message, and they really don't effect the computer's performance at all. At least I don't think.

It only happens when I boot. It beeps 3 fast short times and then 1 short time, a long-but-random time after the 3 fast short times. All of this takes place on the initial logon screen where in windows you login to your account.

What I'd like to do, if possible is get rid of the beeps. I've thought about going in to the "gray" Windows System Diagnostics screen inside the OS, and test it all from there, but I wasn't able to find anyone on the net who could tell me how to do that. Someone did tell me that I could hold down F10 when I restart, before the Windows Logo screen, and I knew that, but I can't get it to work.

Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks!

Hi Everyone,

Can I pick your brains? Booted my PC fine this morning but it was slow in responding to keyboard presses and mouse movement. I rebooted the PC and after the Win XP loading screen disapered, instead of being able to log into Windows, a blank black screen appeared. I rebooted again, this time the blue bar under the Win XP would stutter and then keep moving despite no hard drive activity taking place. Then tried safe mode (and also Command prompt safe mode) and it locked up, after displaying the normal list of files it displays when booting to safe mode. I have tried using 'last known good configuration' and Windows gets so far in loading but at a fairly early stage the PC reboots.

I haven't installed any software or new drivers recently, an automatic JAVA update may have installed but im not sure.

Have not added or removed any hardware.

I have noticed recently the sound of what appears to be something in the PC whining. I have also been playing a game called STALKER that has caused on 2 occasions my PC to overheat to the point of a warning sound being emitted from the motherboard (no other game does this).

I am going to go down the route of checking and swapping out hardware in a bit as I suspect something has gone to heaven! Just wanted your thoughts first of anything else I can do. Once I lose the ability to use safe mode im lost.

Just checked memory through BIOS memory check and it appears fine.

Today, when starting my computer, after the computer had displayed the brand screen and that animated Microsoft bar as usual, it booted to the password screen, but the screen remained black throughout this process, without a mouse cursor. I only knew, or guessed, that it had reached the password screen because the loudspeakers were turned on and it made that usual welcome sound.
So I did a hard shutdown by pressing the power button for a few seconds. Then I restarted the computer, was told that it had not been shut down properly and was given a choice of how I wanted to start Windows, so I chose to start Windows in normal mode, and everything proceeded smoothly from there.

Now, day before yesterday, the same thing had happened (black screen without a mouse cursor), but the loudspeakers were on mute, so I don't know where in the booting process it had reached or if it played any sound at all, so I did a hard shutdown, and restarted the computer. It booted normally (without telling me that it had not been shut down properly), took me to the password screen etc., loaded normally, ran smoothly.

What is wrong? My Sony-Vaio laptop is two years old. It has Windows Vista Home Premium SP1, 2 GB of RAM, with the latest patches and Windows Updates. Security Software is Norton Internet Security 2010, latest build and updates. I do not have a Vista CD, by the way - Vista came preinstalled.

Hello all computechies out there

I'm a total novice in this area.

Rushing to get to work on time, I switch off the power of my PC as it was taking AGES to shut down.

I return from work, turn on my PC and- the now-usual my Motherboard logo "ASUS P5VDX-MX" and prompts of 'del' to enter setup and 'tab' to display 'bios message'(? i think, the intinerary of what's in the bag). I assume this isn't a healthy sign, but it's now a common occurence.

Then, I get the occasional screen of 'Windows did not start properly'- with the options of safe mode, last good config, and start normally. I choose start normally (which i usually do when this happens).

However this time, on the XP boot screen, exactly HALF WAY through the second 'loading' sign (you know what i mean, the 'progress' bar under the xp logo- it runs for 1&1/2 times), i get a quick flash of a blue screen with a lot of code on (appears for a few miliseconds), then the screen 'cuts out' (as if powerplug is pulled or something), pc restarts, and this happens over and over. None of the startup modes work. In my setup menu it said it recognized the primary IDE driver (? apologies like i say total novice) and named my hard drive)- it's a Samsung...

This started to really bug me, so i checked out some forums to find how to pause the blue screen but it wouldn't work- it flashes way too fast. Many ... Read more

My brother's computer that I built for him a year ago recently started acting up. It now will not progress past the Windows XP loading screen with the blue loading bar. If I try to boot it in safe mode, when all the drivers are listed on the screen (which I assume are the ones being loaded) it stops with "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS\System32\Drivers\Mup.sys" being the last listing shown. So I need a way to make it boot somehow or figure out what the problem is. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks.

P.S. I tried booting with no USB devices plugged in (a suggestion I saw on another post) but to no avail

This sounds like you have a corrupt file in your hard drive.

Check out your bios setup to make sure everything is ok.

Reboot your computer with an XP installation CD, then open the recovery console. Run Chkdsk/p then try to reboot. If that doesn't work then try Chkdsk/r.

Also, check your Ram.

Good Luck

Windows 7 login screen fails to load, just get a blank desk top with a cursor. Try to start in safe mode and it gets stuck at classpnp.sys and fails to progress. Chckdsk is auto running on power up. Feels like its running hotter than normal. It's a 5-6 yr old Toshiba Saltallite.

Thanks

How far does it get in the boot process? Does the BIOS detect your harddrive? Perhaps you accidently unplugged your boot drive?

Okay, so i got my laptop about 3-4 weeks ago, and it's worked fine, then i install a crappy War game and when it restarts for installation, the error starts. i get repair or start normally, and neither of these worked, it just loads, does the left to right loading bar stay black for 10-15 mins, then goes to blue screen, 2 empty looking command boxes stagger down, and i'm just left with a mouse and a blue screen.
it happens for all the settings i open it with, and when i open it in Safe Mode, i just get "safe mode" in each corner, a blank screen and the service pack info at the top, only thing that works is the mouse.
This is very annoying, and it won't let me system restore, because the "repair" option just leads to a blue screen before i get any option of repairing, any ideas?

There was a power outage a couple hours ago and it turned my computer off. Now when I turn it on, it cannot get past the loading screen. I've left it for at least 15 minutes and I've tried running startup repair and running in safe mode. When I ran safe mode, it showed all the drivers it was loading and got stuck at crsdisk.sys. I have a recovery disk if that will help, but I'd rather use that as the last resort. Thanks to anyone that can help.

There is possible hardware damage from a power surge. But start by checking the disk for errors and repairing them. Run chkdsk /r from a command line from the booted DVD or your recovery environment.

2 options: start windows normally --> still stuck
start starting help (recommended) --> windows starts loading but then a bluescreen occurs with the STOP error 0x07b (inaccessible boot device)

My windows vista laptop has for some reason frozen on the loading screen, although the loading bars move it does not load the startup routine. I have tried the windows vista startup repair via disc but that did not make difference, I have also tried a system restore which did not work either. Is there a command I can do via cmd prompt? what do I have to do? I can load the computer in safe mode as well, I done a norton internet security scan but that picked up nothing.

run a thougher an antivirus of your computer and an anti addware. if you've got one in safe mode. try scan disk or similar.

I'm trying to fix my friend's Acer laptop, but it won't boot past the loading screen. I've tried all options in the Advanced Boot Menu, to no avail. It won't boot past the screen at all.
Any ideas what I could try?

Hi-

What OS is the laptop running?

Does your friend have any of the installation/ recovery disks?

Does the computer freeze at the loading screen or does it reboot?

[SOLVED]

I tried going into safe mode, but when I hit the logon screen, my comp would automatically restart after a few seconds. The seconds are random. Normal mode/startup worked fine. So I thought I could try using msconfig and had windows do safeboot with minimal .... That was a bad idea, since now my computer tries to always go into safe mode, and it always restarts at logon. I've managed to type in my password fast enough but it says it's incorrect, and then restarts a split second after. And I've also tried leaving it blank, but that was incorrect.

I've tried pushing f8 during boot up choosing "repair your computer". I tried automatic fix, but that didn't work. I didn't have any restore points or images, so I couldn't do either of those. I tried the memory diagnostic and nothing was wrong. I tried using the command prompt and tried finding and running msconfig.exe in system32, but it wasn't there.

After pushing f8, I've also tried selecting safe mode with command prompt, but it goes to the same logon screen, and then restarts. I've tried "last good configuration" and "disable automatic restart on system failure" or something like those, without any luck. I've also selected normal mode but since I've selected safeboot, that just goes into the safe mode logon and restarts.

A:computer restarts when loading safe mode logon screen

So after doing some searching, I thought I should try editing the boot.ini. I found out that windows 7 doesn't use boot.ini, but uses the boot loader program. I figured out that I had to use the command "bcdedit" in the command prompt. I found the word "safeboot" for one of the parameters in the list bcdedit provides. Then I took some time and learned how to change that. I learned I had to use the command "/deletevalue" and from there, I got my comp to go back to booting normally.

HI

I have a Lenovo T410 laptop, in which I have formatted my hard drive completely including all default drives. Now I have a single partition, when I try to restore the windows 7 with the recovery DVDs which I have created when my laptop was working correctly. But it will boot with that DVD but stops at the screen "Loading Windows". Is there any settings I need to change before installing windows 7 to the bios or something. I tried with the other Windows 7 DVD from Microsoft MSDN, even though i am not successful.

Actually after deleted all the drives I have installed Windows XP and it was successful and when I try to install Windows 7 it is not going through. Please anyone suggest me any tips on how to install Windows 7 on my hard drive. Are there any other settings I need to change?
Thanks.

Hi vrsh, Welcome to Seven forums.

You can follow this tutorial for installing Win 7 and XP on your system. Dual Boot Installation with Windows 7 and XP

Regarding the loading screen issue, this might be due to some faulty drivers. Follow the tutorial and keep all the drivers up to date.

My friend's computer (which I'm using) is stuck at loading screen. It's a Toshiba Satellite 64-bit with Windows Vista. I told him to format but he refuses because he doesn't want to lose stuff he has.

I am currently on the Safe Mode with Networking, so anything you need me to do I can do from here, except install programs.

I tried to do a virus scan with avast!, but the computer shut down. Tried again, and it shut down again. It shut down when it was about 70% done, and it had found 18 infected files. I did another scan, but this time I stopped it when it had 11 infected files and moved them to chest. And now when I do the scan it shuts down on 4%.

Can this be the cause of my problem? Or is it another thing? Solutions?
