Preferred Solution: L340 Won't Start Up Boot Failed

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.)

Monday couldn't boot up PC, had to go to system recovery and restore to previous day.

Log files show below that 4 things failed to load.

Tuesday couldn't boot up PC again.. tried to restart like 4-5 times.. Finally comes up and in the logs there's numerous things that failed to load. Running a sfc /scannow right now.

Any ideas what this could be related to or what is causing it?

 

A:Solved: Boot-Start or System-Start Drivers failed to load.

MpFilter is a driver associated with Microsoft Security Essentials... It looks like that was causing issues. Windows Updates had an update for it.. So I downloaded update.. Restared and it worked fine. Removed MS Security Essentials and installed Symantec istead.

Working for the time being...

Sorry if this has already been answered/wrong place. I looked at Google but thought I double check here (since the solutions via Google seem to be refering to a different OS to mine)

First of: Windows Vista, SP2, 64 bit.

Now sometimes (and not now since I am writing this) my Keyboard/Mouse just stops working. It freezes completely and I am unable to use it and am hence required to restart the computer. This happens at random occasions but it usually involves opening some program or what not (I noticed a prominent pattern that the mouse/keyboard freezes whenever I go to speedtest.com measure my speed and then once the download speed bar is finished and upload is about to begin my computer freezes).

I had a look at my event viewer and noticed this:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
i8042prt

Now I am not sure whether this appears at the start and then once I run a program or do something (like go on speedtest.com) the commuter then freezes (i.e. my mouse/keyboard is non-responsive) or the error message comes up after my computer freezes but any help in fixing this mouse/keyboard freezing would be very grateful.

The solution to fixing this problem I founds was to go to Registry editor and change the Start D word from 1 to 4 (but I noticed some saying to delete it completely and yet other sources to change it from 1 to 0 and yet even others to change something that I don't even have under that folder).

If I was to tamper with the reg information, is it possible that I wont ever get access to my keyboard/mouse? My worry is that I might change some value so that I will have no way of getting to the computer with the keyboard/mouse (I am not good with bios) and would not be able to get help on the internet since I can't connect!



It is bad idea

DWORD Start may have following values

0 -boot ,1 -system ,2- auto ,3 -demand, 4 -disabled. Surly if you'll set to 4 you lose access to keyboard and mouse.Don't modify anything.Find folder C:\Windows\Minidump pack it and attache to post.If Minidump folder is empty use verifier tool to diagnose wrong drivers read here:http://www.vistax64.com/973966-post8.html

Guys, I'm running Windows XP and recently when I turn on my PC it makes a single beeb and then seems to run OK.

Tonight, I was running Firefox and the system seemed to slow, before becoming completely unresponsive. I had Task Manager open at the time, however when I tried to shut Firefox down the PC started bleeping like mad and I was forced to do a hard shut down.

I waited about 1 minute and then rebooted and immedietly went into the Error log and found the following entry:

"The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: StarOpen"

I tried Googling a fix with no luck and I can't find StarOpen in the Services, Apps or Program files. Nor could I find it listed in the Device Manager or the Boot-start list in msconfig.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

I checked through the Event log in Administrator tools.
I got the following error: The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: BANTExt

What is it?

I googled BANTExt and found out it's BelArc Advisor. Is it true?

How do I stop this error?

A:The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: BANTExt

Yes, BANText.sys is the Belarc Advisor system driver file.It is started automatically from a Run, RunOnce, RunServices, or RunServicesOnce entry in the registry everytime Windows starts.To prevent the error you would need to find and remove that entry in the registry.

My old system hasn't been powered on for about a year. Problem was the onboard video failed (I think)

Recently replaced it with a video card from another system (riva TNT) and bought some memory (system wouldn't boot, determined that the memory was bad)

Now the system booted but win2K wouldn't work. No problem I have XP now...

After multiple error during the xp install I finally got through it...only the computer will only boot in safe mode..

Initially thought it was a hardare conflict so I booted in safe mode with networking and systematically cleared all the yellow ??? in device manager

I'm not sure where to even begin to fix these problems. Some online searches suggested doing a system repair but I want to get some more feedback here before proceeding.

I realized some of these are not Windows 7 related but most are. While the computer "works", I do experience frequent reboots and freezes. Perhaps some of these driver loading failures are part of the cause of my issues. I do have another recent thread here regarding system crashes so I'll leave that alone in this post.

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7, or a Repair Install would a better first option.

Hi,there

I'm having serious problem with booting my OS.
in Windows boot manager win7 fails to start.
(status:0x000000e)
repair the startup doens't help.

I have Vista 32bit installed on one drive/partition which works fine and win7 64bit on 2nd disk.Due to clean up and re-partition of the disk reasons I decided to do clean install of win7 64bit on a 3rd separate drive/partition.
Everything went smoothly and all 3 systems were visible on the boot screen and they worked fine.
The following step was to remove the win7 from the 2nd drive.
I couldn't format it in anyway (neither win7 install DVD disk nor disk menager).I managed to do it by external software for partitioning under Vista.(I'm writing it as this inability to format has something to do with booting problems now,I guess-removing MBR?)
After formating of 2nd disk I could not load win7 from 3rd drive (Vista works fine)!!
I installed again win7 on 2nd drive, but none of win7 systems are still accessible without startup repair (I did it 3 times)
both win7 and vista systems are visible in boot screen only when win7 installation disk is in DVD and booting order in BIOS is set to start from DVD first.(win7 and vista appears as recovered)
If I remove the DVD disk or change the order to boot from HDD only Vista and one win7 64bit from 2nd disk appear. I can start vista but not win7.

What do I want:keep VIsta and have win7 64bit on 3rd drive(all programes installed--I want to keep this system for win7)

Hello PArtu, welcome to Seven Forums!



Before we make any specific recommendations will you please post a snip/screen-shot of the entire disk management drive map with a full description as to which drive/partition is which, so we can see what you have going on as there may be a fairly simple way to resolve the situation.

In the Windows start menu right click computer and click manage, in the left pane of the "Computer Management" window that opens click disk management and post a snip of that; taken from Vista will be fine.

Hey guys, I was just using my computer when it just froze for no reason. So I had to do a (cold reboot?) and it froze on the TOSHIBA BIOS screen, which then took me to this error. I thought this was going to be easy to fix because I had it a few weeks ago (used system restore) but now I can't get to any of the advanced options. So I put in my W7 install disc I created ages ago and it booted up to the 'repair my computer'. I tried a couple of options but it said it couldn't find my hard drive listed :0 So I rebooted a few more times and tried different options to no avail. I changed the booting priority to the disc drive but it's not even booting to the disc anymore! The hard drive is still working though because it was in the boot priority list. I also have noticed whenever I reboot I'm hearing a click sound every time, perhaps it's from the hard drive? What should I do? It's just plain annoying because I will probably have assignments to write next week :/

A:Windows failed to start: \Boot\BCD 0x000000f

I've managed to boot into the install disc, and I selected 'repair Windows'. So it said it 'found errors with the computer's startup options'. This is what the repair details say:

Help. I'm getting this every time I boot up my computer.
It happened after I had my computer on "sleep". When I woke up and tried to open my laptop, it shut off and showed me this:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your Windows installation disc an restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, and then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

It simply takes me to the same screen when I hold "F8".
So I cannot get the "Repair your computer." Option.

I do not have the windows installation disc.

Please try helping me. Also, all I can do is basically start up my computer and it takes me to that screen every time.
Thanks.

I have a computer I am trying to refurbish. The old hard drive failed. I purchased a new hard drive. The CD/DVD player on the computer does not work, but I am able to boot from a USB. I was able to install Ubuntu from USB with no problems and now have a new copy of windows 7, 32 bit (computer is also 32 bit). I have tried to boot from the windows copy on the USB drive using many different tutorials as well as using the windows USB/DVD download tool.
Each time I boot from the usb stick, a screen comes up that says windows failed to start. It says it may be due to a hardware problem.

All other solutions to this involve using the recovery CDs or partition which I am not able to because the CD/DVD drive is broken, and I would like to not have to buy another one.

Please, any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

A:Windows failed to start: File: boot/bcd

Maybe your win 7 iso is corrupted or otherwise screwed up.

This tutorial contains links to clean iso files, links to a tutorial on placing that on a USB stick, and some other info on installation.

Are you sure that the specs of that PC are good enough for Win 7 (as ubuntu runs on more or less anything)? If unsure please post them and someone will tell you.

Hi

I think it?s just an software (boot manager) problem.
Try to repair the OS using HDD recovery;
Press F8 why notebook powering up.
Then choose repair my computer and then choose HDD recovery.

If this is not possible, order the recovery disk from here:

Then you will be able to reinstall the OS using recovery disk

I hope I am wrong my friend, but that sounds like a bad drive. Doing a clean boot should not have caused this, and if you were having problems previously, it might have been read/write errors from a failing drive.

What I would do is try re-seating my RAM first. Just on the off-chance that might work.

If it's a laptop I'd next unplug it, remove the battery, then press the power button for 45 sec's or so.... then put the batt back in and try rebooting.

Assuming all that fails I would make a bootable USB stick (e.g. http://www.howtogeek.com/136987/how-...dos-usb-drive/ ) and add the hard drive's manuf's diagnostic tool on it [available from their website, Seagate, WD, etc.], th... Read more

Hi guys I got a samsung np355v5c laptop for my son, I've got the same laptop also and was just setting it up for him when it restarted and came up with the following error. It is running windows 8.1 and didn't come with any disk. I was installing samsung recovery tool before it failed, and it came up with a box saying there was no recovery patition on the computer would i like to restart and try again. it was then that it came up with the following.

"The Boot Configuration Data for your PC is missing or contains errors"
File: \boot\BCD
Status: 0xc000000f

So as neither laptop came with installation disks I have started to download installation media from
Creating installation media for Windows 8.1 - Windows Help

To be honest Im not sure what my next step will be when it finishes downloading?

So looking for help and here seemed the logical place to start
Cheers

A:Win 8.1 failed to start, file \boot\bcd, Status 0xc000000f

Open the Command Prompt when the Installation DVD Loads and type the following commands.chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
chkdsk /r e:
chkdsk /r f:.etc until you get the message that the volume could not be opened for direct access. For any drives that do not give the message:
"Windows has checked the file system and found no problems"
run chkdsk again as above. In other words, if it says:
"Windows has made corrections to the file system"
after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

I realize you may only have one disk show up in Windows explorer, but you may have more than one disk through recovery options. This is because the system creates a hidden boot partition (which will be C: in recovery), you may have a recovery partition for your PC that is hidden (which will be D: in recovery), and you will have your primary Windows partition (which may be E: in recovery). A custom PC will likely have at least C: and D: to scan.

But first try fixing the BCD because it's likely damaged: Repair Windows BCD

I have an intermitant problem where I get 'Windows failed to start' with the options 1.Start windows normally 2.Launch system repair.
If I select 1. It will run for well over an hour and give a 'cannot repair message' after which it boots normally anyway. If I select 2. It boots fine with no issues.
Now this might seem like a non problem i.e. just select 2. then, but I am not the only one who uses the machine.
I have tried SFC/scannow, which doesn't seem to find anything, I've tried chkdsk etc. with no joy. There also doesn't seem to be anything in the system event logs that gives me a clue, although I admit I'm not hugely familiar with event viewer and where I should be looking, but nothing seems to be leaping out at me.

Greetings, first of all I have to declare that I am not very tech savy so please bare with me. I am using win 7 home premium x64 intel core i7 2630qm on a Asus N53SN notebook. Ive had it for about 3 or 4 years with no problems whatsoever.

This tuesday though after Ive got some updates istalled I was having trouble booting my system. I was getting this message. After couple of failed windows startup repairs It was suggested to me by the system to restore my Windows operating system to a previous state which I did and it fixed the problem for the time being.

On wednesday I left my notebook on for the night and in the morning I noticed that the update which caused those problems the day before was probably installed again but this time I was left with this screen.

The thing is that my notebook came with an already preinstalled windows 7 home premium x64 and therefore I dont have the installation disc. One of the users on reddit suggested to me this method so I gave it a shot and followed the steps on the site. At the end of the process I was left with this which looked very promising to me (here is the link so you dont have to type it manualy Ubuntu Pastebin). Unfortunately after I rebooted my system I was left stuck on this screen since. (if I press ctrl+alt+del nothing happens)

Disk Check < if necessary include the /f and /r in the command line as per Option2
Run these in safe mode and the sfc often best run for two to three runs

Have a read of this as well Repair Install

Just as a by the by if you just want to get the data and reinstall why not use this
BOOTABLE UBUNTU
Make a bootable Ubuntu disk Download Ubuntu Desktop | Download | Ubuntu
Set the BIOS to boot from the optical when the machine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL > select TRY not INSTALL
When it is finished - it takes very little time you will get a screen like in the pic .
Open the drive you want > User and dig down until you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy / paste the material you want to an external source or other installed drive doing this.
I am not sure if it will but I have recovered tons of data etc using this method both on "dead" or just plain drives that you cannot get data from using Windows.

Also usually most machine have a factory restore partition and that just means booting and tapping the restore key but that will just reinstall Windows back to as it came out of the factory - no data or programs will be saved. What that key is I am not sure just Google for it although I have an idea it it F9 while booting.

simple volume is normal!
win7 changed partitions to dynamic... because you have more than 4 partitions!! if you use more than 3 partitions... create an extended partition and put logical partitions in it.

Now we gonna fix everything.
Do you still need HP_TOOLS partition?
Recovery partition is useless... other language I assume
"new volume" partition. Does it contain importatnt files? Do you mind if I let you destroy it?

I've got a dual-boot system with Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7 Ultimate x64. When I boot up, the first screen I see is the Grub menu. If I choose Windows, then I go through Windows boot menu, although I have it set not to display anything because I now have only one copy of Windows on the machine - I had two copies of Win 7 Ultimate before I decided to remove one and go with Ubuntu instead. So normally Windows would boot up. That does happen most of the time, but occasionally - maybe once in 25 or so boots, Windows starts to boot, then the system reboots, and I get back into Grub. I then select Windows again, and I get the message "Windows failed to start" and a list of options. I choose Start Windows Normally, and it boots up and runs fine.
I don't see anything in Event Viewer that would suggest a HDD problem, I have run many tests on drive, memory, and CPU and all PASS.
I ran "sfc /scannow", and it reports no problems. I have run CHKDSK, and again, no problems.

I have been having this problem for a while, long before I installed Ubuntu, so I cannot blame it for corrupting anything.

Any ideas?
