Q: stuck in startup repair, vista startup repair, repair failures

I am using my cellphone because my computer is stuck in startup repair mode. I have windows vista.I can choose repair or normal, both run start up repair. It always fails after multiple attempts. I chose advanced options after failures and tried to do a hard drive restore to several different dates. It always says its successful and restarts, but goes into startup repair again every time. I have called ms tech support, and not surprisingly my problem requires advanced help that costs money. They did have me restart and push f8 to launch safe mode, but it ended up in startup repair also. I have agreed to pay them but set up an appt for next tues. They said i can cancel and get my money back if i want. They said my problem is fixable and my photos and files will be there. I just feel like i may have a better option and I'm hoping this website is it. I can restart my computer and give the details if its needed. I am desperately seeking your help and would definitely donate if you can fix my computer and i dont have to pay ms. I am not a computer idiot, but definitely NO expert.

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,

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:

This might get a little long-winded but I want to give you guys as much information as possible.

I have a Dell Inspirion 1525 Laptop running Windows Vista Home Premium 32. The computer was working fine perfectly until Friday night and then it just would not boot anymore. If I just turn the power button on and let it ride it will take you to the boot options menu and if it times out it will try to boot normal but will get hung up on a black blank screen. Here is what I have tried so far.

Attempt 1 - Safe Mode
Result - System Hangs on Black Screen

Attempt 2 - Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Result - System Hangs on Black Screen

Attempt 3 - Recovery Mode
Result - System Hangs on Black Screen

Attempt 4 - Shift and F11 - Dell Recovery Partition
Result - System boots the recovery partition and it takes forever, about 10 minutes, and then gets stuck with a box saying something along the lines of "Application failed to find COMDLG32.dll. Try reinstalling the program to resolve the problem."

Attempt 5 - Download and Burn Vista Recovery Disk ISO
Result - CD Boots and I actually got this thing to work. Got to the point where you had to select your OS, and my OS wasn't listed so I just hit OK, and then selected Startup Repair. Computer ran for about an hour and did find an error and then when it checked its own work it was good to go. Upon reboot, it still did not boot up and then would not boot into the recovery disk anymore.

My computer won't boot so I can't run TSG SysInfo. But it is a Dell Studio 540 Desktop and I am running Vista 64 bit. Here's what is happening: After I power on, the Dell splash screen appears and the BIOS seems to load OK. Then, the Microsoft status bar appears at the bottom of the screen as the OS tries to load. Then "Startup Repair" screen appears and indicates that it's checking for probs and will fix them automatically. No BSOD appears at any time. Then after "Startup Repair" runs for a few minutes,, it says it can't repair the computer automatically and gives two options: 1. View Diagnostic and Repair Details; system disk=\Device\Harddisk0, Windows Directory=C:\Windows, Autochkrun=0, Number of Root Causes=1 2.System Recovery Options; Startup Repair, System Restore, Windows Complete PC Restore, Windows Memory Diagnostic Tool, Command Prompt.

The system restore option won't work because there are no restore points. The windows complete PC restore won't work because there is no image available.

Go here to download Ubuntu 10.04 ( There is a newer version, but I am going by my existing setup, so follow along and

choose 10.04 ) http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ Save the iso file.

Then download ImgBurn from here: http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

Install ImgBurn and run it.

Choose "Write Image to Disc"

At the top of the Imgburn window, where it says "Source" click on the folder with maginfying glass icon; Then

navigate to where you saved the ISO file.

Then click on the bottom area of the window depicting hd write to CD.

That should create the CD.

Now you want to boot with the CD on your PC. Check your BIOS so that it chooses to boot using the CD first. You are looking for the Boot menu, boot priority, or something along that line.

Once you boot into Ubuntu, pull down the Places pull down menu. Choose the ## GB Filesystem. That would be your hard drive. You will be able to see all folders in your drive. Now copy off the files you want to a USB memory stick.

I have a Dell XPS M1530 with VIsta home 32 bit.  I did a Windows update and now I cannot boot. I get stuck in the Windows Error Recovery screen and I am unable to run start up repair or start windows normally.  My optical drive was broken but I replaced it to see if i could just reinstall windows and be done with it but that doesnt work either. I also have a power supply that gives me an error every time I boot. I am not sure where to start. My problems seem to keep getting worse.
Thanks!
 

A:Vista home 32 bit service pack update stuck on startup repair

Hi artoodles,
I’d suggest you to run the diagnostics on the computer by following the steps mentioned below and check if there is any issue with the hardware on your system.Turn on or restart the computer.Immediately at the Dell logo screen, starting tapping the <F12> key once a second until the One Time Boot menu appears (if the computer boots to Windows turn the computer off and try again).At the One Time Boot menu, press the <Down> arrow key to highlight Diagnostics, PSA+ or Enter ePSA, then press <Enter> to begin the PSA.Write down any error codes listed. Reply to us with the error codes.
Also, I would suggest you to boot the system into ‘Advanced options’ (F8 during startup) screen and try booting up the system from ‘Last Known good configuration’.
 
If you have not altered the hard drive partitions on the system then you can restore the system to factory state by following the link below.
 http://www.dell.com/support/troubleshooting/us/en/555/KCS/KcsArticles/ArticleView?c=us&l=en&s=biz&docid=DSN_336966#Issue3
 
Note: Restoring the original factory image erases ALL existing data. This includes files, folders, programs, drivers, E-mails, photos. Before performing a PC Restore, back up all personal files by contacting a local technician. If you do not back up your personal files, the data will be lost.

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.

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

Windows failed to start, startup repair cannot repair this computer, safe mode cannot load, chkdsk freezes, sfc scan cannot perform the requested operation

Hi, I cannot start my Windows 7 at all. With power on, the system tries to load up but: ' windows failed to start.A recent hardware or software change might be the cause'. Trying to open safe mode or last good configuration doesn't work, it goes automatically to startup repair but after about an hour trying it says ' Windows 7 Startup Repair Cannot Repair This Computer ' (tried a few times). After another reboot with a windows 7 repair disk in the drive I managed to open the recovery manager from the DVD instead of the HDD and tried all the options - system recovery does not work, i have no previous images of the system, I ran a scan on the memory - it was all clear but still windows not starting. Then I did CHKDSK and it froze at 11% on stage 4 of 5, that happened a couple of times so I decided to run an sfc scannow but another error: 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation'. So I'm totally stuck and don't know where to go next, I've got no windows installation disk, only repair disk. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

Firstly, thanks for reading.

My PC runs Windows 7 x64. I built it myself about a year ago for gaming.

Occasionally running games I would BSOD and it would suck. I'd update all my drivers or try some game-specific fix and usually if I didn't fix it, I would just start playing something else until I remembered it and by then, some Windows update or my own tweaking or just divine providence would have stopped the bluescreens. A few games, like GTA IV, Bioshock Infinite and Spec Ops: The Line remain unplayable for me, as they constantly bluescreen no matter my alterations or updates, but that's another story.

My problem is with Startup Repair. I was playing Max Payne 3 last night, all was well, then BSOD. To note, I never actually see the blue screen, the video cuts and the audio stutters for a moment, then the computer restarts. But in the .dmp files they're always reported as BSODs. Anyway, I restart and do some other stuff, then turn it off for the night. Today, I turn the PC on, and it prompts me to Start Windows Normally or launch Startup Repair. I chose to repair, thinking it was probably time I let Windows have a shot at it for once.

Well, I'm sitting a feet away and watching the screen right now, and it's going through the third consecutive automatic repair. In the past few hours I've run memory diagnostic, gone through the Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery thread with the MD mybackup stuff, attempted chkdsk (can't due to a lack of write privileges, even...

I have a Packard Bell easynote (TM98-GN-030UK), and have had it since Christmas.

On Wednesday, it failed to startup, flashing a quick blue screen and then immediately rebooting. Therefore I cannot get information from the blue screen.
The startup repair option goes to a default blue screen with green nature-y bits. It loads no options, even if I leave it for an hour.

I have tried the system repair disk. It goes to the same background, asks for my language/keyboard settings, and then when I click 'next' again does nothing.

So, I cannot access any kind of repair or restore options as neither does anything beyond show me the default background.

A:computer won't start, startup repair can't repair os version mismatch,

Hi and welcome to TSF this is about your error code
Bug Check 0x74: BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO
The BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO bug check has a value of 0x00000074. This bug check indicates that there is an error in the registry.

Parameters
The following parameters appear on the blue screen.

Parameter Description
1 Reserved
2 Reserved
3 Reserved
4 The NT status code (if it is available)


Cause
The BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO bug check occurs if the SYSTEM hive is corrupt. However, this corruption is unlikely, because the boot loader, known as NT Loader (NTLDR) in versions of Windows prior to Vista, checks a hive for corruption when it loads the hive.

This bug check can also occur if some critical registry keys and values are missing. Thee keys and values might be missing if a user manually edited the registry.

Resolving the Problem
Try restarting the computer by selecting "last known good configuration" in the boot options.

If the restart does not fix the problem, the registry damage is too extensive. You must reinstall the OS or use the Emergency Repair Disk (ERD) that you previously created by using the Windows Backup tool.

Hi All,

Looking for some advice. I had a sudden BSOD earlier and upon restarting my PC it came up with Startup Repair, only to have it fail to repair the issue. I have been following this thread which seems to have stemmed from the same issue. I too am running Avast, so I suspect that may be the problem.

I have been following the steps in that thread and have reached the point of removing Avast keys in Regedit. I previously ran checks and also attempted to repair from the Win7 OS CD as was suggested in that thread.

I think that following the steps to remove Avast files may be the solution to my issue - however, as I am aware that Regedit can be dangerous to mess around with I wanted to check in and make sure I am following the steps correctly.

System info: Self-built PC, running Windows 7 on a Crucial M4 SSD, with two WD Caviar Black HDDs as storage drives.
CPU: Intel i5-2500k (not OCd)
GPU: EVGA nVidia 970 FTW
RAM: 4x4GB

All of a sudden, my computer crashes every time when starting up the computer. When it gets to the "Windows" screen with the small moving dots that form the windows logo, it crashes just as they start their animation.

I've tried using Startup Repair, as well as command line repair (possibly the same thing?), but they are telling me that they aren't finding anything wrong. Also reverting to a previous state results in an error and I can't do a system restore because I have no system restore points. I was able to backup all of my most important files, thanks to that excellent guide on here which tells you how to use the "load driver" window to do it. So, I'm confident that my hard-drive is still mostly functional, since searching through it went fine, with no corrupt files or anything noticed. At first I thought the problem was something other than my hard-drive/installation, so I put my hard-drive into another computer (which was working fine) and experienced the same problem.

I read about the "repair install" option and got really excited that this might fix my problem. However, I read that you can only do it while logged in (which, again, I cannot do) and this was confirmed when I tried to do it anyway. This sounds like the perfect option for me, but I can't get the computer to let me log in, whether in safe mode or not.

Does anyone have any other ideas about what I can do? I'd really like to avoid doing a fresh install of Windows 7, if at al... Read more

My computer was built by me and has been fine up until a few days ago after I removed some USB cables for devices that I then hooked up to another PC I have and reconfigured some USB devices as a powered hub I was using would not let them be recognized by Windows. When I opened the Attached Devices window to see if my devices were now recognized it took forever to open with the blue bar at the top never getting to the end. I Googled the problem and found that Bluetooth was may be causing the issues and to disable it. That didn't fix the issue so I tried other recommended fixes such as disabling printspool -- none worked.
I then started having the Cannot Boot problems so I let Windows try and fix it which it could not. I tried to let it restore from a previous good point but that failed and I would click Send Report and then it would shut down. This kept happening for several days until I came across the aforementioned thread here on the forum.
Last night I turned off the power and went to bed. This morning I switched on the PC and let it boot up.

These crashes were caused by memory corruption/exception (probably a driver).
Please run these two tests to verify your memory and find which driver is causing the problem.

If you are overclocking anything reset to default before running these tests.
In other words STOP!!!

If you have Raid > update its Driver.

*Download a copy of Memtest86 and burn the ISO to a CD using Iso Recorder or another ISO burning program. Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool

*Boot from the CD, and leave it running for at least 5 or 6 passes.

Just remember, any time Memtest reports errors, it can be either bad RAM or a bad motherboard slot.

Test the sticks individually, and if you find a good one, test it in all slots.

Any errors are indicative of a memory problem.

If a known good stick fails in a motherboard slot it is probably the slot.

It starts up normally with the HP logo but then it says "Windows is loading files" and goes to startup repair.
I don't have the windows 7 CD and I dont have a restore point to go back to... I tried booting windows 7 from a usb stick but it just went to the startup repair again tho (maybe i didnt do it right, used rufus on a windows 7 iso then simply plugged it in on my pc)
Couldn't get to advanced boot options even while mashing the F8 key nonstop since I turned the computer on. The only thing that seems somehow useful is the command prompt, that for some reason using X:\windows\system32> instead of the usual C.

Then the computer shut down and when it restartrd started to load files and then go into startup repair, only it couldn't fix it. I tried a restore, but again it said that the startup files wern't there. I just quickly scanned the diagnostic details and noticed something that said "boot critical file C:\CI.dll is corrupt".

Hello. I am having a continuous issue with my computer. I apologize in advance for being an amateur at computer repair so please bear with me if I need to better understand some terminology.

My computer is continuously crashing. It reboots itself or turns itself off. I don't always see the BSOD when it shows up but I imagine it flickers every time it crashes. One time, I saw it, and it said "BAD POOL CALLER."

Every time it crashes I do the recommended startup repair just to get it to work again. It always tells me that Startup Repair cannot fix this computer and then it reboots and everything works again for awhile. I thought everything was fine and dandy a couple weeks ago and now it is starting all over again. Please help! Thank you

p.s i ran checkdisk and that didn't find anything wrong, although there clearly is.
( upon boot up now if i press F8 i get the option of 3 startups, now i'm only guessing but 1 and 2 are a jumble of numbers and letters and 3 is normal startup i think . only option 2 works and i boot normally. if i don't press F8 though i get all that malarky above )

Also, many threads have mentioned reinstalling windows 7, which would be fine if my disk drive hadn't burnt out recently. I am terrified of losing all my files so I don't want to toy around with anything. Thoughts?

Welcome DelaneyNicole.

Sounds like a shame that you do not have a backup of your files.

Some things you could try:
> Try accessing windows repair from boot (press F8 and select the recovery option),
> Borrow a disc drive from another system (maybe a friends?),
> Use a bootable USB drive with say some version of Linux on it to access your files.

Do you know what happens to cause this problem?

Try chkdsk c: /r /x (/x forces dismount of the drive).

If the chkdsk scan runs but does not fix the issue, then please go back to the Command Prompt and enter sfc /scannow. Reboot once finished to see if it has fixed your issue.

Using the rescue disk, I am able to copy my backup files on 'c '  
But I cannot see an option with the rescue disc for wiping the ' c ' drive clean and reinstalling win7?

This states that there's a problem with your registry - it could either be a corruption, or it could be malware.

The "fix" is to use the System Restore feature in Startup Repair to set your computer to a date prior to these problems occurring. If that doesn't work, then try the free, bootable diagnostics at this link: Hardware Diags

I would go into safe mode...uninstall the optical drive...reboot.
 
DVD Cloner
 
Is the above the software you refer to?  What was the exact error message you received...which leads you state that your optical drive reg files are damaged?  Did you consider the possibility that the software installed is the problem?

All right, I can't seem to get rid of this on my startup. And I want my computer back. :<

Anyways, here's the whole story: (don't laugh at me if I made any dumb mistakes I might have made D

I was just sitting at home after band practice one day and went to go watch YouTube, like what any normal 17 year old does after a busy day. Then I realized something.... my computer wasn't playing sound and couldn't find its own speakers. After a little internet research, I check for some drivers, which my computer didn't have the option for... so I kept searching and I see to do a system restore. So, I check and there was an update the night before that might have done something. I go ahead and do the system restore and then I kept getting this Startup Repair coming up. And it won't go away. That's my story.

Now, for more details:

After the system restore, the startup repair would keep popping up, and now it won't go away. It's been about 3 days now. When I go to see the problem, I get this:

Hello and welcome to the forum.

Do you have a full version of vista or do you have a set of recovery disks...

Try going back a week to week and a half on the system restore. Heres how to do it properly.

Create a Recovery Disc

System Recovery Options

System Restore

I threw in one more for you to read, it is better to print the tutorial and read from it while you are repairing your system if this does not work please let me know and we will figure it out. LOL

1. Welcome to Tech Support Guy

2. I realise you have said
This is a HP xw4400 Workstation WXPClick to expand...

and posted in the XP forum

But is the OS XP or Windows 7
If it is 7 is Service Pack 1 installed
3. I realise you say do not pay attention to he dates and times - the dates being 2007
but you also say the tests were done a few hours ago, so can we have the results from those tests of a few hours ago
4. Does the computer load windows and if so has a chkdsk /f been run on the system drive, as Seatools can check the disc for its integrity but not for the file system of windows
If not boot to F8 and then repair your computer
then cmd prompt and run a chkdsk /f from there

Hello everyone.

I've recently attempted to remove the 'test mode' watermark that can be found on the bottom right of my screen, following some instructions from a microsoft site. Upon restarting, I'm unable to use Windows 7 and was me with a message from startup repair saying it couldn't repair the computer automatically.

I also got this:

Hi everyone. I've just encountered a major issue with my PC (Windows 7) earlier this evening. It's fair to say that my computer hasn't been running smoothly over the past few months, with the occasional random shut down and what not, but this is something I haven't experienced before.

It started with Windows loading as normal, then I reached a blue screen with a load of errors, so I restarted from that point. Computer then attempted a number of repairs but no joy. It then suggested that I carry out a System Restore which I clicked, but still no change. I was back to square one.

I've tried running the Startup Repair multiple times but now I'm getting the below error message after just a few seconds (initially the repair process went on for a good few minutes before restarting automatically - now it just gives me this message).

When I reach the System Recovery Options screen, I'm only seeing one option which is the Startup Repair (whereas from what I've read and seen online, I should be looking at about 6 different options when I reach this screen). It's no longer asking me about System Restore.

If you have a Windows disc, boot off of the disc, choose your language, and press Shift+F10 to go directly to the Command Prompt.
Here type these bold commands and prAt the DOS prompt type the following three commands:

At command prompt (x: sources) type this exactly as written:
bcdedit |find ?osdevice? (Must inc ? and the |), the | before Find is the Upper case \ key) press enter. This will tell you what drive letter the OS is on.It may not be on the C: drive. If C: type C: or whatever drive letter and press enter. At this prompt type

bootrec.exe /fixmbr

bootrec.exe /fixboot

bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd



Now restart normally.

Hello,
 
I'm trying to trouble shoot a computer running Windows 7 on bootcamp on a 2011 27" iMac.
 
The computer constantly boots into Windows 7 Startup Repair, but it constantly says "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically."  The same thing happens if I try to boot into any Safe Mode option.  There are no restore points (uggg).
 
Here's the info from running diskpart from the command prompt:
 
Volume 0 D - DVD ROM
Volume 1 C BOOTCAMP NTFS Partition 902 GB Healthy
Volume 2 E No label/No Fs Removable 0B No Media
 
Any suggestions?

I have to say I am not sure if this is a Windows problem or a Mac one. If this was a Windows computer I would suggest creating a Windows repair disk, but I am not sure if that would work in this situation. On top of that I know very little about Macs, but Bootcamp is a type of VM ?
 
If that is the case you may have to uninstall and re-install windows.

For context my manager was trying to revert to windows 7 from 10. The PC tried startup repair, didn't work so I put a fresh Win 7 ISO on a USB and booted from that in the hopes the repair would work.

Also tried a simple system restore but there are no usable restore points it seems.

Any help greatly appreciated as this is the main business PC.
