Installed Windows Service Pack 3 Now Windows won't load past Windows Boot Load Screen

Q: Installed Windows Service Pack 3 Now Windows won't load past Windows Boot Load Screen

Okay, so here's the deal. I had Windows Service Pack 2. Everything was just lovely, then I decided to FINALLY upgrade to Service Pack 3 because some high end Adobe products I was installing suggested it for better compatibility. Aiesh, so I took the plunge and tried to upgrade to Windows Service Pack 3. I was smart because of all the horror stories though and did a full backup up all my data including system state, etc. I set a system restore point, the whole nine yards. I upgraded with no problems but when the computer restarted it do so, got past POST, and the windows boot or load screen popped up with the loading bar. . . but windows never loaded! A lot of people report having problems where it get's past the windows load screen and just keeps cycle rebooting. Or it'll load to the user selection screen/welcome screen. This is not me, I am simply stuck at the windows load screen. (Picture below for reference)


So, I booted into safe mode with networking, searched for help EVERYWHERE and couldn't find any. -=/ By the way, I could boot into safe mode, safe mode with command prompt, and safe mode with networking. So I used my system restore point that had made before the SP3 upgrade and now I am typing to you from the comfort of my Service Pack 2. But this ticks me off because I want SP3 on my system for the sake of those Adobe programs and just because I can't get the dern thing on there it bugs me. Does anyone have a suggestion for me as to WHAT is stopping me from have a healthy running version of Windows Service Pack 3?

I ran the Service Pack 3 install/upgrade as an Administrator, in safe mode, with ANY program/thing that could possibly affect it not running. I thought I had all my bases covered but apparently not. Any help/suggestions? It'd be nice for all the other people out there who are having this same problem to get an answer as well. ;)
P.S. I am running Windows XP Media Center Edition Version 2002 Service Pack 2 (hopefully SP3 soon).

Preferred Solution: Installed Windows Service Pack 3 Now Windows won't load past Windows Boot Load Screen

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: Installed Windows Service Pack 3 Now Windows won't load past Windows Boot Load Screen

Hi sirdanceal0t,
I had a similar problem when Windows XP SP3 was released it was only designed for Intel processors, so if you have a AMD processor it will cause your system not to load, if you are running a AMD processor if i were you try and get back to the System Restore Point or if that fails reimage your pc and just before installing SP3 looks for the patch/fix for your processor model, then install SP3 and it should all be fine.

On the other hand if you have a Intel processor i woulldn't know what to advise.

first of all i am in my vista system as i write this, because i have 2 HDs, XP is my primary system but yesterday something happened, i usually leave it on hibernation when i have to leave and come back but when i did that and turn on the pc it went just fine but after the "windows is resuming" nothing happened, just blank. so i restarted the pc by holding the power button. then i usual i see the bios screen, etc then it asks me what system i want to load, i choose XP and i get the "windows did not start normally" so i pick start windows normal option, i get the windows loading screen then.... nothing. so i get frustrated i unplug my pc leave it for a while then restart go through the same steps, bios screen, systems etc. after picking XP again i get the same "windows did not start normally" and i choose safe mode, it starts ok. go inside check somethings and decided to do system restore. so i restore back 7 days. i restart and this time i am able to get in normally but today i had to do this at least 5 times and now it just doesnt work. i know the hard drive is ok because i can browse through it while in this system.

hey, so for no reason as far as i can tell i started having this problem today. my computer was working fine for awhile this morning, but then a bit later when i tried to open firefox the computer froze for no reason. kinda wierd since that has never happened before so i restarted it.

now what happens is it displays an error that says "floppy disk(s) fail (40)" and i have to press F1 to continue. i don't know why it would do this since my computer doesn't have a floppy disk drive.

then when it gets to the screen that shows the windows XP logo and the loading bar at the bottom (the screen before your desktop loads), it works for a few seconds normally. then the little loading bar at the bottom slows down a whole lot and goes really slow... and just stays like that. the computer won't load past that point, it just stays on that screen, with the xp logo and bar going really slowly!

so, has anyone seen this problem before? what should i do? i don't really feel like reformatting again.

i'm running windows xp home edition by the way

Hello. Sorry if this has already been addressed before but none of the things I've tried myself or online have worked.

Last night I accidentally switched off the power strip my computer is plugged into. Ever since, it won't load past the Starting Windows screen. It even does the little sound that plays when you get to the sign in screen, but my screen remains blank. I can use the computer in safe mode. I've tried a system restore, malware bytes, using the last good configuration etc I'm not sure what else to do. The computer was just given to me the other day so I do not know any of the specs on it. Please help if you can. Thank you.

Hello!

My mother's Toshiba laptop is less than a year old, and has been acting up lately. She doesn't download anything on it apart from windows updates, but she does have it set up to use a proxy server (through a legitimate service) so that she can watch her beloved BBC here in the U.S., which is mainly all she does on the computer.

It suddenly started freezing/sticking on the blue welcome screen with the spinning circle when she tries to boot. (Sometimes it acts like it's doing something, sometimes it freezes. I left it for upwards of half on hour to see if it would finally get to the desktop, but it didn't.) I've tried starting it in safe mode with and without networking, to no avail. At one point, through logging in/waiting/closing the laptop/opening it again and such, I was able to "change user" and login, which did get me to the desktop. However, I wasn't able to do anything before it froze completely. Ctrl/Alt/Delete didn't help.

I'm hesitant to try anything else without asking someone who knows a thing or two! (I thought of re-formatting the hd, but unfortunately don't have a windows 7 disk.)

Any help would be very much appreciated! She's going through BBC withdrawals, and I'm at a loss. Thank you!!

A:Windows 7 won't load past welcome screen

if it setup to a proxy sever that could be dangerous in it self Proxy severs attach to male ware and that sort of thing. Do you run any AV and mal ware Scanners before this happen.

You can try to see if you have a Recovery partition and perform a Startup Repair. Reference : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/tutorials/repair-windows-with-windows-startup-repair/

Hard Drive Manufacturers have a hard drive diagnostic tool but I need the manufacture of the HD

You can try to boot up Safe Mode with Command Prompt and use this command sfc /scannow

I have been trying to install windows 8 to my 128GB ssd, with no luck. It seems to install fine, but once it tries to boot, it shows the splash screen, of the windows, and the dots turning, and it's gone after about 3 seconds, then the screen stays black, and nothing else loads! I have unplugged all other drives, and tried again, to no avail.

Any ideas why?

I loaded Keperksy virus programme from PC user disc and the next time I turned my lapptop on it loaded and came up to a logon screen for windows xp. I have never had this screen come up before in the 4 years that I have owned it. I have tried escape, enter, all the passwords that I use and noting has worked.I have tried all the usernames and even the previous persons username and all I can get is the desktop screen with no icons on it, if you know what I mean.
I downloaded boot discs and can load to the A: prompt, I can change this to C: and even Windows but the only command that seems to work is Dir.
Can someone advise me as to how to get my PC back to normal.
I have tried to boot using F8 in safemode but when it loads it goes to the logon screen. It loads Windows for about 10 seconds and then logs out.
I have no original discs for using to reload windows xp.
It is the Kaspersky programme that has altered something.
I cannot get into my PC setup to type regedit at the run command.
Thanks in advance

I have a friend with exactly the same problem oldtoyboy - so I'll watch this thread with great interest!

I searched the forum and found this thread... but as Safe Mode does exactly what you're describing, I'm in a similar situation.

I feel it is a virus as it has occurred to two identical computers my friend is running on her home network... too coincidental and as her answer to "do you have antivirus?" was "I think so..." I'm not sure as to her level of protection before I came into the picture.

I think we'll need a virus boot disk (I think PC-Cillin used to do one years back)

I have a 2 month old Dell Inspiron 660 running Windows 8.1.that came with windows 8 installed but I upgraded to 8.1 off the internet. Everything worked okay until I did a scan and cleaning with ccleaner. Pretty soon startup was very slow going from the Dell screen to the lock screen to the password screen to the windows welcome screen but windows would eventually load. Now the startup only goes to the welcome screen. That little circle of dots starts spinning and keeps on spinning but Windows never loads. Did I erase some registry files when I cleaned it? I got on Microsoft's live chat support who said they could fix it for 99 bucks but I don't have a dollar much less 99. Does anybody know how I could fix this for free myself?

I also wanted to know how load Dos from win 8.1 and how to boot win 8.1 in safe mode.

Any info or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks y'all!

In short, you have to go to Safe mode and disable the graphic card and monitors and then reboot. If this resolves, fine. Else, update the drivers for your graphic card.

Hi all,
I've been having big trouble with my computer and have been unable to fix it. About a week ago my desktop computer began doing this. Everything loads as normal to begin with and I get to the windows load screen, but then the screen blacks out, and then reappears with a pixelated version of the dotted loading circle and no windows icon above it, just a black screen.

I have gone through advice elsewhere and done a system restore - to no effect. I have disconnected all my devices during startup (flashdrive, mouse, keyboard) to no effect. I have also tried downloading the windows 'MediaCreationTool' (recommended by microsoft for this though I don't know why), installing it onto a flashdrive and loading the computer with the flashdrive inserted - no effect. I finally got to the stage where I've cleared the computer files and attempted to go through the windows re-install but it froze before the install and is now back to the same loading screen as before when I turn it on. I can access can access the BIOS menu when I hit delete as the computer loads and could access the repair screen when I hit tab, but it now wont load for some reason (after about 20 tries).

This started after a Windows 10 update tried to install itself a few times (for some reason it had asked to install the update 3 times and I let it do it each time) but this should not be an issue now I have reset my computer back to its original settings.

Yesterday all seemed to be working fine. I was using my custom built PC to study. One of my subject was to learn about Adobe Flash so i needed to download flash professional.
I downloaded this and the Adobe Creative Cloud, used it for a while whilst studying, then turned off my PC.

Today i loaded PC and found it will not load past windows login screen. I enter my username and password, t says welcome, thinks about it for about 30 seconds, then i just get a black screen. My mouse pointer is on the screen and i can move it around the screen, but there is nothing to click on - its simply not displaying anything at all.
To try fix i have done this:
I CAN load in safe mode. Everything seems normal when in safe mode.
In safe mode i have deleted the adobe products that i downloaded.
I have tried windows repair, it did somethings, but then it booted W7 again and same thing happened.
In safe mode I have tried to re-install drivers from motherboard (ASUS Z97-pro)... seemed like some worked and some didnt... suppose because its in safe mode drivers are limited - same with graphics card drivers (Radeon R9280)...

I cant work out WTF is going on! and its driving me nuts!

Before anyone asks I'm not sure of the system specs of the computer in question. I bought it cheap off of a friend and he's doesn't remember the specs and I can't get into it to check them.

When I start up the computer it loads with a new loadup screen (did not happen till after the problems started). The screen says Asus Motherboard A8N-SLI Deluxe. It then goes to a screen that shows PCI device listing . . . I'm not sure what it all is for. At the bottom it says "A disk read error has occurred" "Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to restart. Occasionally it skips this screen and instead goes to the windows 7 Splash screen, but regardless of which it goes to I can't do anything else except restart the computer.

When I press F8, F10 or F11 it goes to either RAID Utility or Setup Utility and then I can't get any further with it without restarting and the aforementioned problems continue.

I'm fairly certain it's a virus, my computer was showing signs of a virus in the days leading up to this problem but as Malwarebytes failed to show any problems with the computer when I scanned it I ignored the problems. I'm also aware that all I may be able to do is wipe the harddrive, and I'm fine with that. I just want to be able to use it again, though if it can be fixed without resorting to this I would appreciate it.

Hey there Vista forums,

Hoping you can help me out.

This week, i've been having a lot of issues with Windows Vista. It's been freezing, blue screening, refusing to boot properly, and a list of other issues. I've tried fix after fix, and i feel as though now i've just compounded the problem.

From the start I'd like to say that I am an OEM system builder, and i have my own coppy of a full windows vista 64 bit installation CD.

I run two hard drives, 500gb and 750gb, with windows vista installed on the 500, and nothing but games on the 750.

The issue i have right now is that i cant log in past the welcome screen.

It started with the computer telling me upon startup that it cant load vista, because winload.exe was either missing or corrupt. Some research showed me that it was a common problem, and gave me some things to try as fixes.

So far, i have:

Run Chkdsk
Run Sfc /scannow (it didnt work)
Ran the startup repair from the Vista CD
Tried booting in safe mode
Run more Chkdsks
Run MORE chkdsks
Run more startup repairs (each one yielding different results)

And somehow, i've gotten the computer to turn on, and bring me to the login screen. However, once i log in, It just goes to a black screen with nothing.

I have researched this, too, and tried bringing up Task Manager, and then manually rebooting Explorer.exe

However, explorer.exe, windows explorer, explorer, Explorer, Explorer.exe, and any other term I can think of, is not working, because... Read more

I dont know alot about computers so please bare with me. I deleted alot of old programs (such as games etc) which I do not use anymore, *through the control panel add/remove programs*, then did a virus scan, and deleted what was found, and decided to go to www.microsoft.com and get the sp3.. after I installed, when I restarted my computer later, it gave me a black screen saying that it was shut down unexpectedly, and offers safe modes, last good config, and start normally, I have tried all three options, with safe mode, it freezes the computer, with the other two, it boots to the windows logo screen, then it will restart the entire system. Is there any way to fix this? I did not get windows disks or anything like that when I bought the computer, I did create recovery disks, but have since lost one of them, so they aren't much help.

Thanks

lickitysplit87,

It's going to be difficlt without the XP CD, as that has the Recovery Console that we need in order to get your computer past the logo screen and into the OS.

Today I was playing a game and my system did a hard lock (no sound, no mouse, frozen image on screen), this has been a problem lately as I seem to be losing system stability for a while. I chalked it up to my system overheating before as I was typically able to shut the system down for a while, then 20-30mins later it would be fine.
However, today after my PC crashed for the second time, it started having trouble booting. Sometimes I can hit the power button and nothing happens, the power light comes on, the fans work, but no startup beep and the HDD light doesnt work. Other times I can start it, and it work like normal until it gets to the Windows 10 login screen (though most of the time it doesnt get that far before freezing), then I get a hang, and the HDD light turns off. The fans on everything continue to work, but the entire PC just freezes.
This PC about 2 years old and wasnt having any trouble until the last two months. This is the first time I have had this particular problem, but it has been crashing quite a lot over the last two months.
I had looked up this issue elsewhere, and it seems that no one can come to a consensus whether its the processor, ram, GPU or otherwise.
PC Specs:
ASUS Motherboard
8 GB RAM (Ram taken from an older PC)
4.7 GHZ 8 core processor

If Vista will not start now, boot the Recovery CD to run Startup Repair which automates System Restore as well as numerous other tests including System File Checker which can repair system files which are not corrupted beyond repair.

If Vista still will not start, try booting into Safe Mode to run sfc /scannow to repair System files.

Hi I really hope someone can help me!

I have a fujitsu lifebook with windows 7 on it
I had an error message pop up when i tried to click on google chrome this morning, so I closed it and attempted to re-start my laptop, then AVG pops up telling me I have a virus so I allowed it to "clear" said virus. I then restarted my laptop and it would not go to the login page.

I attempted system repair to no avail, I then allowed chkdsk to run and there were a lot of "security ID repairs", I have also tried f12 and booting from my windows 7 installation disk. Non of these options have worked

I get the fujitsu screen, then the windows loading screen then instead of the log in screen which would be next, I get a black screen with the cursor visable and you can move the cursor but nothing else works and no keyboard shortcuts work

someone please help.
I've been told to restore the OS but i cannot afford to lose all the files on my laptop

A:Laptop wont load past windows page, stuck with black screen and cursor

Since AVG 'cleaned' a virus - all bets r off as the problem could be a leftover from the virus. apparently, a (some) system files r damaged. Going forward, u might not want to run normally as an admin user. That helps keep malware from invisibly installing if the AV does not catch it. 1. have u tried booting to safe mode? If u can get there try this clk Start - type CMD -- rt clk cmd.exe and select Run as Admin when the dos window opens type 'sfc /scannow' let it run retry boot when done. 2. If u can't get there or that doesn't work put ur windows CD in and boot to that. Run the repair install - or it might be called upgrade. Just do NOT do a CLEAN install. That will not erase any of your data. 3. If that does not work If u get a Hiren's boot disk, or something similar. U can boot to that and most likely copy ur data from the drive prior to doing a clean install. This assumes the drive isn't corrupt which appears to be true since it gets to the Windows screen. 4. If not u will have to remove the drive and connect it to another computer as an external HDD to copy the data. 5. If none of the above works - u have come to the complete understanding of the word BACKUP................ good luck

So I have been messing around with this laptop for weeks now trying to figure out how to get it back to normal loading and everything. What happened at first was that my husband noticed the computer was very slow in responce to just about everything. We checked internet connections and nothing helped. Well one night he shut it down, and the next day when he tried to turn it on, it would state "Checking Media (Fail)" then change to another screen that said "No Boot Device Found. Press any key to reboot the machine".  After attempting to reboot the machine, these same notifications came up over and over.  So, I researched tons of forums on tips of how to get it "re-booted" This was a few weeks ago so I dont remember exactly what I did. I changed boot options, this and that, and nothing helped. However the absolute last thing I did was changed something to "Intel Smart Response", and now my computer will NOT move past the Dell logo. even f2 and f12 wouldnt work. The loading bar under the Dell logo will pop up, but it will say like that. I have tried waiting it out for hours and nothing changes. My brother did try a Recovery USB, but he forgot that my laptop is Windows 8 and his is 7, so needless to say that didnt work at all.
 
So my problem is now that I need to create that Recovery USB thing. I was not aware that I should have made this as soon as my computer came in. I have nev... Read more

A:Creating a Windows 8 Recovery Drive for an Inspiron that will not load past the Dell logo screen!! HELP

"Checking Media" and "No Boot Device Found" sounds like it's trying to boot from the DVD drive but not finding a Windows system disk.  You can try putting one in the drive.  If you don't have a Windows 8 system disk, you'll have to keep trying the F12 bypass (keep pressing it repeatedly...don't hold or only press once) to get you into boot options, and then make sure you select your hard drive.  You should be able to request a system disk from Dell (and you should anyway...even if you do recover from the USB drive).
ALSO: please remember that, unless you made an image of your hard-drive or used backup software, your "recovery" options will be limited to repairing the existing installation or reinstalling altogether.  If you reinstall, you could lose your files and settings.
For what it's worth,  my Inspiron started acting up after about a year (Windows 7) with overheating on high-demand programs (even with a cooling pad, plenty of ventilation and a desktop fan blowing on it).  That was followed by the slow performance you described and now I'm getting a "hard drive failure" error. 
I've seen other users report the similar issues with their Inspirons on these forums (and others) so I think we just got stuck with a lemon .  Hope you have better luck with yours....I've pretty much given up on mine and moved back to my old desktop.

My dad accidentally installed Windows XP Over the current working Windows XP Service Pack 2.
THis is on an old laptop which has some important school work which I have been trying to get copied to memory stick but with no luck.
My dad thought the laptop was running ever so slow and thought that reinstalling XP would make it quicker again.

Now after it has done, the laptop not running well at all.
It loads but when you choose ANY user account it loads up till the desktop and nothing happens after that. THe start menu and icons don't show up. Its like its got nothing else to load. The task manager can be run (control+alt+del) and everything is responding.
I have also tried running it in safe mode but the same still happens.

THe closest I have got was to use the XP disk and use the recovery console and try to use the command promp to copy the documents and settings\my documents into the memory stick but when it tries to go to documents and settings it says that the access is denied .
I think the laptop would eventually have it formatted and started again but is there anyway to get the work off it into the memory stick??

Yesterday I installed critical/needed Windows XP updates that had been waiting on me for a few weeks behind the yellow update shield in the lower right corner of my screen. I was having problems connecting my son’s new Christmas present, Xbox Live , to the internet so I was about to restart the computer to see if maybe the router needed me to do a clean reboot after entering the Xbox’s MAC address into my allowed devices list. I stupidly thought I’d be thorough by installing those waiting updates first and then restart. All went well and when it finished and asked if I wanted to restart now I selected yes. Nothing happened. I kept trying, still no restart. Then I went to Start>Turn Off>Restart several times and each time I returned to my desktop with nothing happening. Finally I just did a cold shutdown with the power button. My son is, understandably, so upset that he can’t use his present to connect with his friends live.
Now my computer won’t boot up at all past the Dell splash screen. The typical churning, lights and sounds all begin and then when the Dell logo screen appears, everything goes quiet. It took me several times before I could get into my BIOS, select boot order to start with my CD, place my XP install disc into my drive and restart. Still, I can’t get past that screen and it never boots from the CD. (the CD light does go steady at “power on” like it always does but then goes off at that splash screen along with everything else.

   Tip
Use the up-arrow and down-arrow keys to move the menu’s highlight to Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced), and then press Enter as the mouse won’t work at this screen.


Your computer should load successfully, and Windows 7 will discard the bad configuration and return permanently to the last known good configuration.

It's possible that you can't access the actual startup repairs from within Windows itself. You might have to boot from either an installation disk or a previously made system repair disk. And it might take running the startup repair 3 times before all issues are fixed.

A:Alienware won't load past XP load screen

Pay more attention to your typing...

Your going to have to strip down the system to bare minimum hardware. Set the bios to failsafe defaults, use on-board video if you have it. Remove any USB devices and any add-in PCI cards like a NIC, sound card and use only 1 stick of RAM for the Windows fresh install

My Windows Vista home Premium 64-bit will not load all the time. I have a two month old Hp computer with not to much installed on it. I have a new Hp printer, I have norton antivirus with antispiware and office home and student 2007. I purchased my computer from Best Buy. The problem that I am having was looked at a couple of times by the geek squad. I purchased new restore disks and had them reinstalled by them. This did not fix the problem. So they told me that the problem is normal and also said it is just windows being windows. I did not believe them so I am trying to get a solution from a different sorce. When I boot my computer up on or around the 8th to 12th start up it will not load up past the black screen with the Microsoft Corporation logo in the center bottom screen which would be the green loading bar. It keeps running and running and running. This happens all the time on or around the 8th to 12th time just like clock work. When this happens I have to shut off the computer with the power button. When I restart the computer it will go to start up repair which never fixes it. I contacted Hp and they told me to punch in msconfig and then click on startup and uncheck anything that does not say Microsoft on it so I did and that did not work. I contacted Microsoft and they told me to download a free tool from them called Sysinternals Autoruns tool. It works like msconfig but more in depth. I asked them what I should look for and they told me to uncheck anything that ... Read more

A:Windows will not load past the green loading bar

Hmm... I have 3 computers- (1) notebook running Ultimate x64 SP1; (1) notebook running Premium x64 SP1; and (1) desktop running Business x86 SP1, and NONE have this problem you describe, so i seriously doubt it is Windows Vista- unless your installed Version is catastrophically corrupted.

I suspect you have one or possibly two issues at work here:
1. Hardware Failure
2. Windows Corruption

Check Reliability Monitor for Hardware/software issues, and under advanced tools, Generate a system health report

Start>type perfmon in search>click reliability monitor

You can also check your hard disk for bad sectors/system errors. If it is not recoverable contact HP.

You should really consider removing all that bloatware that came with your computer too. Personally, I wouldnt waste my money or time using Geek Squad. You might want to consider doing a destructive reformat/reinstall of Vista x64 (delete or format the partition Windows is installed on, and reinstall Vista) If the reliability Monitor/System Health Report shows no hardware issues. If there is a hardware issue, make a note of the issue and contact HP.

Do not contact Best Buy as in the first year of their extended warranty as any issues will be dealt with solely by the OEM manufacturer, they will just send it to HP and the turn around time for you to get it back will double (if your data/computer doesnt "get lost" or "disappear") Be sure to back up/remove the HDD before sending it in.
