Windows Startup Error - System Recovery Launch Startup Repair

Q: Windows Startup Error - System Recovery Launch Startup Repair

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 recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

Hi everyone,

At the moment i have a slight problem with my laptop.

It wont start and it goes into a sort of boot menu where i can try to mend it with startup repair. This wont work and it does not find any problem codes.

I tried to do a system recovery but when i try to do this it says i need to put system security on in my C-disk. But because of the fact that i can't startup my system, i dont know how to put my C-disk on in this startup repair mode.

I sincerely hope someone here know what to do!

Can we use this option to disable Windows Startup repair so that Windows 7 will startup Windows normally at all time?
This option is currently no selected, however the Windows is starting up with the Startup Repair screen when it went into bluescreen etc.

If we select this option and change to 0 seconds (without
running bcdecit /set {default| recoveryenabled to No), will Windows start up normally without going to Repair option?

Noticed that even on machine that has recoveryenabled set to No. bcdebit /set {default} recoveryenabled No --- the "time to display recovery options when needed still remains uncheck.
are these two: recoveryenable No vs time to dipsplay recovery options option related/same?

My desktop computer started (out of the blue) acting up with a "windows error recovery" screen on boot up. It gives me the choice to "Launch startup repair" or boot to windows normally. The first option does not fix it. It gives an error code 0x0. It leads to a dialog box that says system recovery options that gives some details and some advanced options, but it tells me it does not recognize my username and password! The second option, to boot to windows, gives me a BSOD. What to do.

I am trying to help a family member with problems with their laptop. Over the past few months it has been slowing down badly, with anything from photos to websites to excel taking minutes to load. Usually I was able to fix this by identifying the programs slowing the PC and ending them in task manager. In the worst case scenario restarting would fix it

This evening, someone tried to turn it on, and on return found it on start up repair. After waiting a while, I realized it was in the notorious start up repair infinite loop. After turning off the computer, and trying a normal boot, it loaded the windows logo, before going back to the start up failed screen. After choosing the start up repair option, the windows background appeared, but the start up repair failed to appear. Multiple restarts have also failed to have the startup repair appear. Any ideas or help would be appreciated.

(Extra point, as it is a family PC, the owner is not too keen on me messing around in bios or safe mode)

Good news to you then, boot into Safe Mode

Start with this as AVG had a recent issue, perhaps you are experiencing the same

Windows 7 stuck on "starting windows" screen - includes a link to how to uninstall AVG if you can't boot into Safe Mode.

Also set the laptop to run a clean startup - Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup (keep security software checked)

You can try re-installing AVG or go for Microsoft Security Essentials. Also scan with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware free (you can start the free trial, easy to revert to free when trial is over).

I'v installed Windows 7 64Bit as dual boot with 32Bit. I'v landed up with a list of issues for some unexplainable reason and still left with 2 big issues I need help with.

This is what happened: After files were copied on reboot I got boot error "NTLDR" not found. Then I did a repair to get into my current installation and found boot manager saying Windows 7 (recovered). (The recovered part is new.)

Now both installations are marked like this and in My Computer the disk "System Reserved" is showing all of a sudden and it has the same drive letter as my external ( E: ). My external drive is now not showing any more.

How do I fix this...

I started my computer this morning and it went straight to a black screen where I have to pick from two options:Launch startup repair or Start Windows normally. If I start normally, it just restarts my computer and goes back to the black screen. If I launch the startup repair, it goes to a screen with a Windows-style background and stays there doing nothing. From what I've seen online, there should be a window where I can choose to repair or reinstall Windows, etc. but I don't even get to those options.

I tried starting in safe mode and it looks like it's going through a long list of system files, then it stops and restarts my computer and it goes back to the black screen. Every solution I've seen online requires that pop-up window, which I never get to.

I also tried booting from my recovery discs and they just take me to the blank Windows background again. My computer was fine last night when I shut it down and I haven't downloaded or installed anything in ages.

Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like you may have suffered a hardware failure preventing machine from running or completing any tasks, you could try some bootable hardware tests on your RAM and hard drive to show if they are operating correctly
RAM - Test with Memtest86+

Have you tried entering bios ? does all your drives etc still show ?

A:Windows 7 wont boot up, "launch startup repair" just never c...

@Reckart Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! This situation is usually caused by a corrupted file system -- which can often be caused by a failing hard drive. To check that, you have to follow these steps:1) Press Esc key repeatedly, several times a second, while rebooting the laptop. Do NOT hold the key down, just press it over and over.2) Eventually, you will see an HP Startup Menu -- that will look similar to the image below ...3) press the Function key for testing the hard drive (usually F2) and let it run.Please report back the test results. If the hard drive checks out OK, then you MIGHT be able to fix the filesystem problem using a Windows Repair Disk. You will need access to a working PC for this step in order to create the media needed to repair your PC boot loader.You will need to create something known as a Win7 Repair CD. This will repair the boot loader files, and if that is the problem, your PC will boot OK after that. This can be obtained (for a fee) from this link: http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/When you download this file, it will be an ISO file.To make a bootable CD from it, you will need to download and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/Once you have that installed, run it, select the option "Write image file to disc" and select the ISO file you downloaded, and point it to a blank CD.To make a bootable USB stick from it, you will need to download and install RUFUS: https://rufus.akeo.ie...

I have an Acer Aspire V3-551 and recently, it can't boot, I tried a backup & restore using Acer's eRecovery management software. It was able to backup my files but hasn't made it past restoring, now I can't even go in start up repair and it keeps rebooting on windows 7 installation no matter which advanced boot options I choose, it ends up going back to "Setup is starting services" or "Windows Error Recovery". How do I get out of this loop or back into startup repair? All safe mode options don't work and I've already tried Last Known Good Configuration. Do I have to result in a clean installation of windows 7? I don't have the installation disc with me so will buying a new one work?

Thanks in advance

Hi all,

I'm having trouble with my Packard Bell EasyNote TJ65. On launch I get a Windows Error Recovery message telling me that "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause."
I'm then offered the choice of 'Startup Repair' or 'start Windows normally'.

Start normally - just brings me back to the same error message screen.
Startup repair - launches to Windows splash screen with a cursor, but doesn't advance from there.

Ive tried booting/reinstalling from disc, but that isn't working either. I get to the Install Windows screen, input language/location options, click on Install Now - but it then goes to a 'Setup is starting' screen and can't advance any further ... The cursor just spins (for hours!).

Any help appreciated!

My laptop is a Gateway with 1Gb RAM. It has had problems for several months where it will just reboot. Now, however, when I try to boot it, the machine displays the screen that says that there is a problem and asks me to start the Startup repair. If I choose this, the repair runs for several minutes, then says, "Startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically."

I had this same problem a few months ago, and took it to a PC repair guy. He didn't even charge me because he said the problem was so simple to fix, it only took him a couple minutes. He told me what he did, but I have forgotten what it was, and I can't get in touch with him again.

Any suggestions on what I can do so as not to lose my data would be greatly appreciated. There is just 1 file on this system that was created last week that I can't afford to lose. Anything else is not critical, but I do need to get this one file.

Thanks, in advance, for the help.

Hey all, been having quite a bit of problems with this monster computer of mine. So it started about 2 days ago, programs would just go unresponsive and I'd have to force shut down. I ran CC cleaner and AntiMalwareBytes and Avira and everything was clean. But it was still happening.
Then it wanted me to repair it when I booted the pc up, so I would and it would come up with no errors then restart and do the same thing. If I try to start windows normally it stops at the windows logo. I eventually reinstalled windows and yet the problem still persists. I called microsoft and was told it was for sure a virus/malware/whatever, but I'd rather not pay 100$. 
I've never reached out to a forum so I'm quite desperate! I'm not very tech savvy so bear with me.

As the title suggests, my Acer Aspire has been running startup repair for over 20 hours following a BSOD yesterday. I'm not sure if it's worth the wait so maybe you all can shed some light. Yesterday I was stressfully trying to search for something (using Chrome) and the website I was on froze; admittedly I slammed the heels of my hands down on the laptop at that point. The site unfroze after less than 30 seconds, I continued using my laptop without incident, then let it hibernate for about an hour. Started up fine after that, and at that point I was beginning to rip a DVD (one that I owned; I just wanted the files on my computer) using a program that I've used successfully in the past, but the rip failed. So I began using VLC instead, and hadn't actually started ripping any files when my laptop froze. I had been trying to point to a file path for saving but hadn't saved anything. The laptop was completely unresponsive after several minutes, so I hit the power key to restart, which is when I got the BSOD. It flashed too quickly for me to read or remember anything other than the word KERNEL. I've been wracking my brain trying to remember if it said kernel error or kernel memory error or what.

After the BSOD I had the option to start normally or in startup repair; I hit "start windows normally" but it went to repair anyway. It was on the grey screen with the cursor but I thought it had frozen again, so I did another hard restart. No BSOD this time, but again the opti... Read more

Hi 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.

Hi there,

I have a lenovo think pad x100e with windows 7. Two days ago while using the word processor it began to freeze and show weird translucent screenshot like images. I suspect this started to happen after I installed f.lux to decrease blue light on my screen. The first time the freeze happened the system eventually unfroze but the second time, I tried many times to press Ctrl+alt+Del and the system rebooted and since then I have not been able to get into the operating system. It keeps indicating that windows is loading and showing the bar indicating progress and then it will send me to the thinkvantage rescue and recovery 4 screen. After 10 or 15 minutes a window will indicate that the rescue and recovery workspace is starting and it may be another 15-20 minutes before it indicates it is checking for repairs. It appears to still be processing and not frozen (I can move the mouse/cursor) but I've left it on overnight before and it never completes the repairs or restarts like it indicates will happen once they are completed. Occasionally it won't even get to the checking for repairs window.

This process happens whether I choose the option to continue with windows normally or the option to check for repairs. Also if I interrupt normal startup and hit f11 or try to go into the setup utility. When I try to run diagnostics I get errors. Verification failed.

I don't know where else i would post this so i'm posting here, I run windows vista.
I can't really tell you much about my computer i'm not computer savvy, it's a sony vaio laptop ..
It's a good computer until more recently when i've been having trouble starting it up.

When starting it i'll either run into one of these issues.
1. it loads vaio logo, and when it would normally go to load log in screen it just stays black and doesnt change no matter how long i wait.
2. it gets past log in screen, after typing in password either run into a black screen again orr..
3. i run into a white screen after log in, with sometimes "windows display settings has stopped responding" or (most of the time) no window at all, just white for a while and then my desktop will come on.
4. (most common) I have to run startup repair, and wait until it's done. then system restore, and then start.

Today however, on startup repair. when it would normally work afterwards, today it was different. it said it could not fix the problem automatically, I still got my computer to start after a system restore. but i'm afraid to shut it down now.. what do i do?

Windows 7 doesn't need third party tune up tools or "optimizers". They cause more problems than they solve.

Did you try running the system file checker scan 3 times as suggested? And did you reboot the computer immediately after running each of the 3 scans? You could also try running the SFC at boot to see if that makes a difference.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

If you're still having problems with Windows Explorer crashing, you might consider doing a repair install. It will try to repair Windows 7 while preserving your user accounts, data, programs, system drivers, etc. The repair install take about an hour to run. When finished you'll have to reinstall Windows Updates which could take another hour or more.

Repair Install

You could also use this opportunity to do a clean install and get a superior performng system without all the factory bloatware.

Hi, first post.

I can't follow the guidelines and put any information from the BSOD, because I can't boot my computer. However, I've taken a picture of the blue screen, if that's of any help.

Picture: http://i.imgur.com/faUQAZs.jpg

This is the process up till the BSOD:
1. Turn on computer
2. "Windows failed to start"
3. I can then a) "Start windows normally" or b) "Launch startup repair (recommended)"
4. a) just reboots the PC into the same state
5. b) results in a BSOD seconds after. It's stays until I turn off computer,
6. The BSOD again: http://i.imgur.com/faUQAZs.jpg

Things I've tried:
1. Booting into safe mode (and any of the other fancy options after pressing F8). This is NOT possible. I press an option, and I see a BSOD for 0,1 second, and the PC reboots.
2. Booting from recovery disk. I enter BIOS and change booting order = it detects the disc, starts to "load windows files" = but goes into BSOD seconds after.

What is definitely causing this:
My Samsung 840 SSD. I've tried replacing it with my old WD 640gb hard disk, and the computer boots just fine.
HOWEVER, it has worked fine since I installed it in September 2013. I WANT TO STRESS: It has worked fine, with out ANY issues since September 2013 up until now.

Nothing strange has happened lately; no new software, no new hardware.. nothing. It was a little overheating a few days ago, because it didn't turn off correctly and I put it in my PC shoulder bag... Read more

A:Turn on PC - "Windows failed to start" - Launch startup repair - BSOD!

The Bugcheck code of 50 suggests a memory problem, but I have seen something similar on the same Samsung 840 EVO SSD that I solved by power-cycling the SSD. To do that, follow these steps:

1. Power off laptop, unplug power lead, and remove battery.
2. Press and hold down the on/off button for 30 seconds, then release
3. Open the laptop and disconnect the SSD
4. Press and hold the on/off button for another 30 seconds, then release
5. Reconnect SSD, close-up the laptop, reinsert battery, reconnect power lead.
6. Boot as normal

Report back if it helps or not.

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

A:Windows 7 won't startup properly - Stuck in startup repair loop

You will need a Windows 7 repair disc to get to the System Recovery Options.

Then try the steps in Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery. Note the warning:


The instructions presented withing this tutorial must be followed correctly, or you can damage your Windows 7 installation even further. This tutorial is designed to help recover from a bad registry that is causing the startup repair loop. You should note that there may still be some issues remaining that cannot be fixed by manually restoring the registry.

Consistent BSOD during Windows startup for both normal mode and safe mode. BSOD problem started shortly after buggy installations of Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 x64, Microsoft .Net Framework 1.1, and AMD Catalyst Drivers 13.9; and turning off Microsoft .Net Framework 3.5.1.

Startup Repair is consistently unable to fix: 0x0000007e (0xffffffffc0000005, 0xfffff800033bf6d6, 0xfffff880009a7578, 0xfffff880009a6dd0).

I accessed the dump file of the BSOD-inflicted drive by usb-connecting it to the same pc, but that's now running a functioning, system hard-drive.

BlueScreenView shows these following files to be problematic:

The hash of the atikmpag.sys from the BSOD-inflicted drive is identical to the one in the functioning drive, so I don't think this is the root problem.
However, the hashes of the two dx files (dxgkrnl.sys, dxgmms1.sys) are different. I have replacement files for the broken dx files, but I don't have, nor know how to get, the access permission to replace them.

I'm at a loss for what I can try at this point. I used DM Log Collector and uploaded the resulting file. Any help is appreciated, thanks.

A:BSOD during windows startup; can't safe mode; startup repair can't fix


The cause of the problem may be related to a Windows 7 installation which has never seen any updates.

Host Name: HENRY-PC
OS Name: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium
OS Version: 6.1.7600 N/A Build 7600
Can I just confirm, you have no way of booting into Windows at the moment. Correct?

Gateway DX4720-03, Windows 7 HP 64-bit.

Living is south FL can be a bitch when the rains come as there often is a ton of accompanying lightening that plays havoc with the electrical system, even though I have surge protectors inside and outside the house. We just had some very heavy rains with lightening and my computer shut down several times, but I could restart it each time...except for the last time when Windows wouldn't startup. At that point, Start Up Repair came into play. Although I routinely backup on an external drive, of course I never did it this month-DUH!

Results from SUR were error free (error code=0x0) on all the parameters tested, however there were the following error codes reported:

"Unspecified change to the system configuration might have caused the problem."

Repair Action: System Restore
Failed: 0x1f

Repair Action: System Files
Failed: x490

There were more options to select for a recovery task, but I didn't try them as they didn't seem to be as salient as the two above..

As System Repair and System Restore failed, please advise what i should next do.

I have a Dell Inspiron with Windows Vista. On starting up, it says, "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." then offers to "Launch Startup Repair" or "Start Windows normally".

When asked to start normally, it tries to start, but fails, returning again to this page.
When asked to launch startup repair, it opens the programme, scans the system for several minutes, and then says "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically".

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
Problem signature 1: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 2: 6.1.7600.16385

(then my O.S. version)

So. It all began when I shut down my computer, since itunes was giving me trouble. It installed an update, and then shut down without a problem. But. When I restarted it, it told me in a strange font, "Windows is loading files..." and then took me to a screen that gave me the option to Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally. Either option brings me to the same message, "Your computer was unable to start. Startup Repair is checking your system for problems..." Which would be fine with me, if it ever left that screen again. But no matter what I try, it never gets past that point. Sometimes it tells me that it cannot be fixed. And then proceeds to do NOTHING. Or, once, it offered to restore my system. Since this is the exact same thing that happened to my last computer, along with a bunch of other stuff that contributed to its eventual demise at the computer repair shop, I have nothing I NEED stored on there, so I said yes. But, that did nothing. Now it's back to the exact same nauseating screen that tells me it's searching for problems. I looked it up on the internet, and found that it has happened to many other people, but no matter where I go, no one seems to have a straight answer as to WHY it happened, or how to fix it. Is it a virus? Is it an error? How, if it's possible, do I get back into my computer? What did I do to cause this? When I either get a new computer, or fix this one, how do I keep it from happening YET AGAIN???

Hi sat_raj
There are several avenues that can pursued but I would start with the following:
Try a Fix MBR. To do this, press the F8 key at the Dell Logo on startup, select repair my computer, select your keyboard layout and language, click on your user name and sign in, at the System Recover options, click on command prompt, enter the following bootrec.exe /FixMbr and press Enter. If successful, you should be greeted with the message The operation completed successfully. Then type bootrec.exe /FixBoot and press enter, after this completes restart your computer.
You can also access the System Recovery Options using the Windows Disc, put in the disc, turn on computer, press the F12 key at the Dell logo, select cd/dvd and press enter. This will start the CD, when it comes to the screen to Install Now, do not click on that, but click on Repair my computer, on the left bottom corner to access the System recovery options.

A:Win 7 no boot to windows or safe mode Startup cannot repair or System

We see this a lot when using any Registry Cleaner besides CCleaner. Norton also works best when uninstalled.

You may have ruined your Win7, but try running the REpairs from the Win7 DVD or Repair CD so it doesn't rely on System files which may be corrupt or damaged. System Repair Disc - Create

Make sure Win7 or it's 100mb boot partition (preferred) is marked Active then run Startup Repair up to 3 separate times to repair or rewrite the boot files: Partition - Mark as Active

System REstore and SFC should be automated in Startup Repair but run them separately anyway if it fails from the System Recovery Options
SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot

You can copy out your files using this: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

If all else fails, run Factory Recovery or your Recovery DIsks, or use or find a WIn7 installer for Reinstalling Windows 7

Hey All,

So I am pretty sure that my Windows 7 home premium installation has become corrupted somehow. I've just noticed thins not 'working' well and have been experiencing more and more BSODs over time.

I have ran many disk / system file checks (sfc /scannow), and it states that there are certain files that are corrupt but cannot be repaired.

When I try to run a 'Startup Repair' from my Windows 7 DVD it is unable to find ANY Windows Installations, which concerns me.. and therefore leaves me no options to fix.
Yesterday, I decided to try and do a 'upgrade' repair from the Windows 7 DVD in hopes that it would completely clean/replace all system files.

It took forever, but finally upgraded. All my files remained (which is what I wanted), however, nothing seems to have changed.

When I tried to do the startup repair, it still dosen't find any Windows installations on my system.. which makes NO SENSE.

Obviously I have a working windows installation, since if I take OUT the Windows 7 DVD, it will boot normally, and things seem to be working (other than a few weird glitches/ BSODs everyonce and a while).
Can you please help me with the following:

1). Is there some 100% method to see if my Windows 7 Installation is corrupted / not working right?
2). If Startup Repair dosen't recognize any Windows installation, does this mean my installation is corrupted?
3). Is there anyway to fix the Startup Repair?
4). I am trying to AVOID having to completely clean-install Windows 7, ho... Read more

Why not invest now in a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which you can then save after setup as a backup image and never have to reinstall again.

You'll get and keep a perfect install to the extent you stick with the tools and methods in the tutorial.

Otherwise post back a screenshot of Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums.

You can sometimes force Win7 install to show in WinRe by running these steps How to run the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and repair startup issues in Windows.

But we need to make sure the correct partition is still marked Active so post back the screenshot first.

Hi all,

Self-built and Posted first computer, as below, in July 2013. Seemed fine & fast for a few weeks.
Three weeks ago, for no obvious reason, Windows 7 'stuck' on the 'Welcome' screen. I painstakingly reinstalled from scratch. OK for a couple of days...then repeat of problem.
So then I used Windows 7 disk's 'Startup Repair' following F8 boot up; successful but it asked me to reinstall MalwareBytes Anti Malware (which I did from backup disk).
Ever since then I have had to startup the computer every time - either using Startup Repair and F8 boot, or - just as much - System Restore from F8 boot up. (As I'm always asked to restore MBAM after an eventual start, I'm just mentioning that - is that coincidental or part of the problem?)

Once the computer's has started up it's fine. But I hate turning it off! I've never overclocked the computer, btw. And I've never had a virus as far as I know.

Thoughts please!

Hello, my computer has been working flawlessly for the past year and has had no problems at all working currently with windows 7. Until two days ago when i was just browsing the internet and my computer froze and the whole screen tinted pink. I tried moving the mouse, typing in letters, but it was frozen. I was forced to power button to get the computer to shut off because i was unable to do anything. Upon restarting my computer it asked me if i wanted to run windows normally or use safe mode, so i run it normally and then on the load screen where you see the windows 7 logo it freezes every time. The computer stays frozen for about 10 minutes and then it restarts itself and comes up with the Startup Repair program only to say that windows cannot repair this computer automatically.

1. Attempt to boot into safe mode (pressing f8 on startup)

3. Attempt to repair computer with install disc
result: Get to the "System Recovery Options" screen. My drive with OS appears in the selection box and appears highlighted, however I cannot advance past this screen. On further attempts I plugged in a USB mouse and tried to use the pointer to hit the "next" button, but I get the spinning blue ring and the screen hangs.
I have tried repairing from multiple discs. One an install disc, another a repair disc I made on my laptop. Both times I got the same results.

I had this happen to my system 2 weeks ago, and then again 1 week ago.
The first time I could not solve the problem and I re-installed my OS on another of my internal drives, recovered... Read more

A:Windows 7 x64 startup errors, can't enter safe mode or repair system

Is the HD detected in BIOS setup?

If so run the maker's HD Diagnostic extended CD scan on it, followed by Disk Check from the installer's Recovery Options Command Line.

Next run the RAM test and start working through the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start

You will have to be able to boot a disk, which failure is almost always due to user error. The last resort is to boot PW CD provided which will boot itself, wipe the HD, which will force installer to autostart to reinstall. The Paragon Rescue disk to rescue your files will also boot itself.

Hello. I've had problem with my friend's laptop (OS - Windows 7 Ultimate). It won't log on to it's fullscreen mode. When I open it, I'm always stuck at Startup Repair error cycle.

Here's what happened: I installed Glary Utilities and used it to uninstall the Adobe CS3 Bundle. Then I installed the CS4 Bundle. After that, I used Glary Utilities again to clean the registry, cookies, missing shortcuts, etc. Then I used its Registry Optimizer feature..after analyzing the system, it said that the computer needed to restart to complete the process. So I restarted it. And that's where I'm left at. I can't open the laptop anymore, I can't even run it on Safe Mode - it's not available. The only available options I will tell below. My theory on this problem is that maybe I or the Glary program have deleted system files that are essential for Windows startup.

Note: I uploaded: a video of what is happening to my friend's laptop during startup; .txt files of the errors; a picture of the ble screen; and a copy this post in a word document (ony, it's not translated into English but the dialog boxes are in English). Here's the link to the files so you could check my problem: http://www.filefactory.com/file/b2540hd/n/prob.rar

And here's what boxes appear during startup. The red ones are my comments.
(***sorry for my grammar. am not an english speaker. Hope you get what I'm talking about, though.)

This is what the screen says during startup (please see the video first, this is just a... Read more

A:Windows unable to start - Startup Repair and System Restore won't work

Similar problems when trying to restore a system image from a portable HD. I used a bootable USB stick with the Win7 installation files on it and then tried to select a system image from the portable HD. After selecting the image and advancing to the next screen all of the selections would be grayed out and would not let me restore the image. I tried selecting another image from a backup partition on the computers HD and had the same problem. The fix was to repeat the procedure booting from the installation DVD instead of the bootable USB. I am not sure why the DVD worked when the bootable USB failed but it saved me a reinstall. This is an old post but I thought I would share my findings just in case someone has the same problem in the future.
