Startup Repair Error (Forever Loop) Error Code 0x80070003

Q: Startup Repair Error (Forever Loop) Error Code 0x80070003

Here's my story:

My sister's PC had been corrupted in lots of unnecessary programs and apps.
I deleted those craps. Windows Action Center then prompts me to update my windows, and I did.
PC restarted and POOF!!!, I am seem to be forever stuck in the Startup Repair Loop.
So I tried System Restore, but it's giving me the error code stated above (error 0x80070003).
I also tried System Image Recovery, and it's not also of help. Also, checking Hardware Options didn't help.
Lastly, I tried the Command Prompt option and it gives me nothing.

So how can I possible fix this error? ((

thanks in advance for those helpful respondents ))

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.

Where/how did you get the install media? Sure sounds like bad media.

Are you trying to install 32 or 64 bit? If 64 bit does your hardware meet the requirements?

Hi all,

Firstly my specs:

So, I originally was getting a few graphical glitching errors in a few games I've been playing recently, Company of Heroes and Red Orchestra 2: mass colour changes (which I can only describe as massive swathes of white/grey colour amassing on any 3D rendering) and hanging in the games. I only started having these problems with the installation of RO2, since I have been playing CoH fine with no problems, yet that might just be a coincidental correlation as opposed to the cause of my problems.

However, I started getting CTDs accompanied by a BSOD very shortly after. This BSOD code was 0x00000116 (VIDEO_TDR_ERROR) related to the driver nvlddmkm.sys. I also, previously to this, had a few BSODs with the error code 0x124, but these would be fairly sparse and I'm not sure these are related.

It then got to the stage where whenever I would boot into windows normally, it would spend around 5 minutes on the initial pre-logon splash screen, the display would go blank, then shut off, come back on but blank, and then BSOD with the code 0x116. ... Read more

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

Hi,

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.

Hello,

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:

Problem signature name:Startup repair offline

Hi guys,
My display port monitor stopped working randomly today and usually i restart or just plug & unplug the cable and it starts working again.
Well today I tried doing so and it didn't work so I tried using HDMI, VGA etc which made me restart the computer 4-5 times in a row.
After the 6th restart it said windows repairing etc then got at a screen which said this.
I've googled it spent over 2 hours trying to fix it from doing what is said on the windows forums reddit, etc. A lot of people give up and just reformat the computer but I can't afford to do so.
I have preformed a system restore which failed. Tried some commands in cmd, tried startup repair - I even tried running it in safe mode which failed.
Has anyone experienced this before?

EDIT: I am not sure if this picture of DISKPART helps at all - Maybe the bootmgr is on the wrong partition?
Also why can I not change directories to C:\.

This sounds like a sound solution, but it doesn't work for me. The startup repair just goes on forever, and ever, and ever and never does anything. If I don't disable secure boot and EUFI, it doesn't even go all the way into Windows 7 setup. It just sits there at the "Starting Windows" screeen forever.

In your case, it will not work as you are not booting the Windows 8 Repair CD/DVD/USB in UEFI mode.

Next reboot and tap the F8 key to enter System Recovery Options

Accept any offered repair. If not then run Startup Repair a few times to see if it can start it. If not try System Restore from the Options list.

Report back results of all of these. If they fail you will need another PC to make boot disks to proceed with everything that can be done for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start.

If you have your files backed up and you want to you can run Dell Windows 7 PC Restore but unless it offers to copy out your files to external USB, you'd need to make a boot disk to do that from the Troubleshooting steps.

I bought a refurbished Dell Optiplex i7 desktop and it came with Win7 Pro 64 bit installed, no CD of any kind. The other day it was running when the electricity shut off. When I tried to start it, after downloading files(?) it went into Startup Repair and after six hours of that I gave up and shut it down.

Besides the fact that I might have to let Startup Repair run for days (what's the point in having a computer that is disabled so easily?), I'd like to know if there is any other way I can fix this problem. Remember that I don't have the original disk.

I'm used to WinXP where such a problem just means that DiskCheck will run for 5-20 minutes and then it will start up. What's so different about Win7 that it can't handle something like this.

I hope someone can show me an alternate fix. Thanks... John

Hi,

I am unable to start up my laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium). TOSHIBA Satellite C660-1J6
It is stuck in a loop of 'attempting to repair this computer', which is unsuccessful and restarts.
There are no restore points to use.
I have received the BSOD which disappears quickly during startup.
I am able to start up in Safe Mode - however when I get to the login screen, the mouse and keyboard do not work.

I would highly appreciate any help or advice with this.
I am happy to reinstall windows as I have everything backed up. However I am unsure how to do so as I do not have a CD.

Kind regards

A:Startup Repair- windows cannot repair; Stuck in restart loop

Firstly, a Windows 7 install disc is a dvd, not a cd.

You would have to find a working PC to download a Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 Iso File, either 32 or 64 bit, let`s assume you need 64 Bit.

After you have downloaded the iso file you have to burn it to a dvd at no faster then x4 speed. So the PC has to have a dvd burner and you`s need a blank dvd.

Everything you need is in the following links.

https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/techno...-download-tool

Free ISO Burner

Clean Install Windows 7

You can also use a usb stick to put the iso file on using Rufus. The usb stick must be at least 4 GB in size.

https://rufus.akeo.ie/

You must also have a readable key on your COA to activate windows after you install it.

You will also have to install at least your network/ethernet drivers to get online. Then get your other drivers, and run Windows Update, which will take a long time, sometimes 24 hours.

Hello @Tazzikinz Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting. Could you confirm you run Windows 10 ?  If yes, was it a clean installation or you previously ran older Windows version and upgraded to Win 10 ?  What was your previous Windows ? Your problem is known as Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). BSOD is kind of Windows self-protection feature. If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss. A hardware device, its driver, or related software might have caused this error.What you describe could happen because of incompatible with Windows driver (most often) or because of hardware issue (rarely). I guess your Windows updated itself automatically and the update caused the issueor there is some hardware problem. In order to troubleshoot, I would need some specific information.  Please, check the official HP article about such issues >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04593971Perform specifically step 2 and step 5 as diagnostic steps]. Post the results of the hardware checks and the details of the message BSOD that appears. Follow step 4 to use "System Restore". It will undo any recent changes that might be causing the blue screen error, including changing your settings and uninstalling recently installed software applications, or Windows Updates.  Let me know if this helps. Looking forward to your update.

I'm having major issues with my Dell Inspiron 1720. It has Windows 7 Ultimate on it but hasn't been used in a year.

My cat knocked over a soft drink onto my keyboard a year ago and resulted in keys constantly going off. I have a USB keyboard so I tried to disable the regular keyboard but the issues kept happening, so I uninstalled the drivers for the oem keyboard and used the USB for a few days. After a few days the battery stopped working and the computer died when it came unplugged. Without the oem keyboard, which has the power button on it, I was unable to start the computer up and just used another. Now that screen was broken in a move and I am trying to get the inspiron back up. I found out I could boot the computer up by plugging it in without a battery.

I did this earlier and was taken to the diagnostics screen where it immediately told me that there was no keyboard. I chose to skip diagnostics and then it prompted me there was no power button. After skipping the diagnostics test (I've since ran one that showed no issues) it's tried to resume windows. After an hour of sitting on the resume screen the computer list power for a moment and died (since the battery was out). Now I'm stuck in a constant loop. I've tried everything.

Hi

I presented this Windows Update problem, error code 80070643 to the forum about 18 months ago, and at that time I decided to reinstall W7 as it was the least complex option. The problem I have is a Windows Update failure loop which leads to the failure of all subsequent Windows Updates and also disables System Restore, and the update failure always starts with the .NET Framework update. When this problem started, it occurred every 6 months, so I had no major issues reinstalling just to correct it. Now it is occurring every 2 months, making re-installation unsustainable.

My question is this ? Microsoft kb976982 states that an MSI fix, Microsoft Fixit 50123, should be used first to try to resolve the issue. When I tried to run it, I got the message

?Windows Installer ? this action is only valid for products that are currently installed?.

Visiting Microsoft Help for more info about the Fixit50123, there was this System Tip -

?This article applies to a different version of Windows than the one you are using. Content in this article may not be relevant to you. Visit the Windows 7 Solutions Center?.

Even though there is an MSI.DLL file in W7 system 32, does that mean I do not need this Fixit50123 at all? If so, I can then go ahead and try the uninstall / reinstall the .NET Framework, secure in the knowledge that I did not miss one important step i.e. the MSI Fixit50123.

Thanks

A:W7 Update failure loop, error code 80070643

The type of error message you got often means that you've downloaded the wrong bitness of installer - however, I do mot think that's the case here (as far as I know, there is only one Fixit50123 file)
What I suspect is that there is a failure in dll registration somewhere - and you need to fix that before attempting anything else.
Are you seeing any other symptoms, besides Windows Updates problems?
try this KB article - How do I reset Windows Update components? use the fixit from that and see if it helps (or gives the same message!)

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.

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 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.

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.

I did get to windows once, but everything was running painfully slow.  I plugged in a flash drive to try to transfer my photos, but computer would not recognize the device.  Finally it just shut down to a black screen.
 
I can get to the windows recovery screen, but I really wanted to get my personal files, pictures, etc. off before I do that.

Get to Windows Recovery Environment:
 
Press F8 during startup, until you get the black screen with Repair my computer, Safe mode, ...
Choose 'Repair my computer'.
Then in the System Recovery Options, please select Command Prompt.

 
Type in the command prompt: notepad

Hey, everyone! This is my first post here, so excuse me if it's quality is lacking, as I do not know what information to provide.

Windows Update will not update my drivers for my Nvidia GTX 980. So I went around on forums and eventually did sfc /scannow in administrative cmd. This is what it told me.

Okay so after I did that, I proceeded to type in, Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth.This is what the result looked like.
So my question is, how do I find 'Source Files' like it's telling me? If that's not the issue, then my next question is, how do I make Windows Update work without giving me the 0x80070003 Error? Cheers!

Hello I have been troubleshooting my laptop computer problems for awhile now and I was searching the internet with no avail.
 
Firstly I own a HP 8710W Laptop with WIndows 7 Pro 64bit that uses the NVIDIA Quadro FX1600 M Graphics Driver.
 
My computer for some reasons unexpectedly shuts down. Sometimes my mouse disappears and I thought it had something to do with my memory, which I scanned and had no issues, neither with the hard drive. It then goes in start up repair repeatedly, finding no issues. Yet for some reason once it runs it, I am able to log into Windows, but only after the start up repair runs and finds no issues. I tried to do the start up loop registry fix, and even tried to use the Windows 7 disc to repair and nothing seems to work. Also note, SFC /scannow finds no issues as well. I then end up figuring it may have something to do with Windows Update. And I end up receiving this error shown in the screen shot. Note my brother has the same make and model and running the windows diagnostic it finds no issues. I am unable to figure out why these issues are happening. Does anyone else have any ideas and solutions for the fix? Thanks.
 
Note: I also have uploaded my error log files as well.

Since you still have a warranty, run an extended diagnostic on the system.  F12 a few times at powerup to get into setup -- in particular, run the extended diagnostic on the drive.  You'll likely see a fault code starting with 2000-.  Record the exact error and contact Dell with it -- they'll replace the drive under warranty.

Dear all,

A little over a week ago, my system BSOD'd (too quickly for me to see the first time) and eventually after a number of restarts rebooted normally and ran fine for the next day or so. The following day, I was unable to get the machine to post, with fans spinning but not a lot else. Resetting the BIOS seemed to work, but I was then stuck at the startup repair screen, looping without success. I had a spare HDD so installed another copy of 7 Pro and managed to book ok, but after several more BSODs it looked like a hardware fault. I changed the motherboard today for a similar (same chipset) model and reconnected the original HDD, but once again I am stuck at startup repair with the following error:

My wife's PC crashed today and got into a startup repair loop. I'm hoping that I can do a repair install, but I can't figure out how to do so. Here's the details:

Intel i5-3570K (not overclocked) - intel cooler
8GB RAM (can't remember what kind - maybe G.Skil)
Galaxy GeForce GTX 550 Ti video card
Corsair TX-850 PSU

Users directory on Samsung SATA drive with other stuff that isn't installed in Program Files directories.

The problem:
Today she wanted to play Skyrim, so she ran the Skyrim Nexus Mod Manager.
It had an update. She downloaded and installed the update, the tried to run the game.
When the game launched it started Steam and tried to download updates (there is a new update to Skyrim that came out a couple of days ago), and she walked away.
When she came back it was on Startup Repair screen saying it could not repair the problem. The Error text is:

I have a Dell Inspiron and a while ago I shut down my PC and the next morning I was faced with options to repair my computer. It hung on the screen for ages before it actually came up with startup repair and supposedly fixed the problem. A few days later, everything got very slow and started to freeze a lot and before long, booting the computer got very slow as well as it hung for about ten minutes on a black screen after the 'welcome' screen before finally starting up. I decided to reinstall the operating system (I did NOT reformat the C drive), so I borrowed my Grandma's external hard drive and copied my files. After reinstalling using a Dell Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium Re-Installation DVD, I copied and deleted the files off the external hard drive onto my PC (I didn't know it would create a Windows.old folder) and started installing programs. Then I left it overnight to install quite a big program. This morning, somehow it had turned off. I turned it on and it gave me the safe mode options and a 'start windows normally' option. I chose the latter and after typing my password it hung on the welcome screen again. I left it for ages and it just went back to the user login screen again. I pressed the red button in the corner to shut it down but it just hung once again on an empty screen so I did a hard shutdown (held down the power button). I turned it on again...startup repair. It gave me the option for system restore, which I did (then realising when it finished that I had... Read more
