Manufacturer error screen looping after restart

Q: Manufacturer error screen looping after restart

Roughly 2 hours ago I went to restart my father's computer to install Windows 7 updates. While restarting, I received the attached image instead of the loading Windows screen. No matter which of the option given it always will loop back to said screen after a brief Windows loading screen.

F1 key loops it back
Delete key gives me an error sound and will not proceed
F12 gives me a BIOS screen, but if I exit it, I am given the same manufacturer screen

His computer is a Gateway SX2802

Gateway SX2802-07 Specs - CNET

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Manufacturer error screen looping after restart

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: Manufacturer error screen looping after restart

Most probably is Hard disk failure.

The 2 sentence from below, Port 3 Device Error

SATA Port 3 is the Seagate hard disk
Also it mentioned S.M.A.R.T. Cable as Status BAD

Need to remove the Hard disk.
Hence it will always show this screen if you do not remove the BAD HDD.

Blue screen error "Stop: C0000218 Rlegistry File Failure
systemRoot\system32\config\software or its log or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable. Registry cannot load the hive (file): Begining dump of physical memory."

HP Pavilion ze4904us

The above first appeared well after I'd successfully logged on and everything appeared to be working fine. Came back into room after laptop had initially gone to screensaver and saw creen save mode had become the blue screen w/above message. It's in a never ending loop from the blue error screen to the black apology open w/safe mode options, last successful etc (none of which break the loop or work). Inserting the first of the 2 Recovery CDs (xp/sp2 op systm - the 2nd is applctn and driver recovery) does nothing even when selecting to boot from CD. The loop simply repeats over and over and over. All articles I've found suggest either booting from recovery CD or downloading fix from internet - but if the CD isn't stopping the loop and the loop never allows for an internet access (only the 2 (3 if you count the inital Windows screen w/esc optn also not working which shows just before going to the blue screen followed by the apology screen) so no way to open a browser much less download from the web.....Please help - if anyone can....I'd happily wipe it clean and start from beginning if I could just break the loop cycles should that be an/the only option - thanks

Ok, so I've tried contacting Microsoft Support several times, and they just keep sending me back to the form to request for help. I've given up hope on them. Anyways, here is my problem.

My computer is set to automatic update. I saw that it was updating, and instead of telling me it needed to restart, it restarted on its own. When it tried to restart, it gave me an error message saying that my sfc_os.dll file was missing before it restarted itself again. It then gave me the option to go into safe mode, which I did. It gave me a few memory errors then finished loading. Before I could do anything, it restarted again. It continued to do this till it stopped loading safe mode. It gets to the Windows XP loading screen, then restarts back.

I have tried restoring to last good known configuration, and it fails every time. When it goes to load now, it asks to run chkdsk, it freezes during the 2nd step. I have tried my hdd in my brother's computer which is the exact same model as mine, and was able to run chkdsk as well as load into windows. However, it didn't appear that the drivers for the mouse loaded as I wasn't able to use it and eventually the keyboard stopped working. I did scan it with Malwarebytes and Norton and nothing was detected. I was thinking that because of the memory errors, I could try replacing the RAM in my computer with those of my brothers and see if I make any progress. I don't think that's the only problem, but I coul... Read more

Welcome to SevenForums.

Insert your Win DVD.

Shut down your computer.

Remove power from you computer.

Reapply power.

Start your computer and IMMEDIATELY start tapping the F2 key.

This will get you into the bios where you can change the boot order to boot first from the optical drive.

On some systems, you can tap the F12 key to do a "one-time only" boot order change.

A friend of mine bought a new laptop Acer 4750G intel core i3 with 2gb of ram and 1gb of video card, 64 bit. The said unit has no OS installed when he bought it thus, he ask me to install windows 7 ultimate. The installation of win 7 was successful together with the third party softwares. I activated the OS by executing the "[deleted by mod]" and the computer will restart automatically.

My question is why the computer restart repeatedly after activating the OS. i did the same procedure a lot of times and it gives me the same result. I firmly believe that there's no problem with my installation disc (32/64 bit) as i was using it in a 32 bit computer for more than a year now.

No response from any input, frozen screen, and constant hard disk activity. I restarted the PC, but it locked up again as soon as login screen appeared. Now, I cant even get that far. The PC will get up to the Windows loading screen, and will automatically restart, no matter what i do.

A:Continuous Restart Looping

Does your pc freeze or does it restart?

If it restarts can you hear a clicking sound from you Power Supply?

I had a faulty Power Supply a while ago and it sometimes but not always would do multiple restarts whilst Windows was still loading. Ususally I could hear a click just before the restart. If you can he a click to then try using a friend's power supply, preferably a friend who know knows more about pc's than you so that he can help you with installation. If the issues are gone then you obviously have a dying power supply on you hands, if not then I can't offer any more help.

Or maybe just take the pc to a pc fix-up place and allow them to determine if it is the power supply or not.

I am the IT manager here, one of our XP Professional machine has issue.

When i start the machine, it has the XP loading screen (with the window XP logo), which is normal.
Then after that, it will restart the machine by itself, so it will keep looping to restart, i never can get into the desktop. why?

I tried to use my XP CD to do a repair or chkdisk, it tried to load all the system files, then i said it failed because some .sys corrupted.

I am thinking to do chkdisk, any boot CD chkdisk utility? or give me any suggestion for this issue!

Please give me some advise,

I have somehow managed to infect my desktop (microsoft xp home edition)during a download process. I was opening an application that, in retrospect I should not have. Anyway as soon as it opened I knew it was bad!!! I attempted to lockdown the computer but no good. I whipped out the power cable as quick as possible but too late im afraid. Now my desktop is left in a conituous startup loop. It gets as far as booting to the windows screen but then begins an automatic reboot. I have tried atrating both in safe and last known modes to no avail. I think I may be looking at a system reboot from disk(which I cannot find), if so will I be able to retrieve my data from harddisc?
I feel extremely stupid for having opened the file. I did scan it with spyware doc. previously but got an all clear. Is there anything that i can do? And perhaps there is some info you can share with me in relation to checking any files that you are unsure of in the future.

HP Pavilion 761n, 1.67 GHz, 512 mb, XP Home Edition

This crazy machine freezes to the point of no return at random. Sometimes, but not always, the screen will have a green strip and the rest of it rust color at freeze time, but usually the screen remains intact.

Get this: When you push the power button on the front of the machine it will go into a loop cycle from blue HP logo screen to selecting which type of Safe mode to use, back and forth. The only way the machine will start correctly is by flipping the surge protector button off and wait for the green light on the power supply to turn off. Then you flip it back on and use the power button on the front of the machine.

Another thing: I set up DSL for the client and it was working fine. When the machine froze, and got it powered up, the DSL modem works fine, but the computer will not access the Internet.

Are these symptoms the power supply? Could it be the CPU? Could it be the USB pulling down the power supply? I ask this because when the HP all-in-one USB printer was power on, the system seemed to freeze a bit more. How can I determine the problem? I used AIDA32 to check the system, all the fans were running on the inside and it indicated no problems. Help!

Are you using a firewall or antivirus program?

Have you checked the Device Manager for any yellow !'s?
Have you tried booting to "last known good configuration"?
Have you tried System Restore?
Have you checked msconfig/startup to disable programs not necessary at startup?

At first windows loads up as usual to desktop. After about 30 seconds, it randomly restarts and after that it keeps getting stuck at boot logo and then restarts again looping over and over again.

This also happens on safemode. I managed to uncheck automatically restart option on sysdm.cpl with the 30 seconds that I had, but even after doing that, the restart looping persists. I dont know what to do.

The last time windows worked normally, I played Forza Horizon 4 with logitech g29 steering wheel and shifter which was working perfectly fine for 4 days after I got the steering wheel. The next day I go to turn my computer on and this happened.

I clicked the restart option through the Start menu and it went to the shutting down screen... then it stayed there w/o moving for 10 minutes and I didn't see any updates or anything that would delay the shut down of my computer... so I then pressed the restart button on my computer case and it went to bios and went straight to this screen>>>

Hello! I am trying to repair a friend's Gateway NE56R (Acer) laptop. It has Windows 7 Prem loaded on it. I have the set of 4 Recovery discs, 1System Disc and 1 Language Disc, they are all Factory Discs, not self made recovery discs. When I turn on the PC it shows the Gateway Logo then it flashes a small white line in the far upper left hand corner of the screen, then next it is followed by "Starting Windows" then it goes straight to the Windows Error Recovery screen. It just loops back to that screen over and over. I tried using the recovery discs using both the full recovery and the save the data recovery options. It goes all the way through the whole process of loading the discs one by one, then it asks for the Start Up disc last but not least the language disc. When it is done it reboots the PC right back to the Windows Error Recovery screen. I tried picking the safe modes, well I tried several choices on the Recovery screen, such as Safe Mode, Normal...  But so far nothing seems to work. I've managed to bring up a page with the choices of Windows 7 and "Run A Memory Test", I tried both. The Memory test says it does not find any problems. Then it boots up to the Windows Recovery Error screen.

Hi there,

I bought this notebook with Windows 8 preinstalled. Recently there's something bad happen to my notebook and I had to wipe all the partition and hard disk. So I downloaded Windows 8.1 ISO and make it bootable with Yumi Installer. But I cannot get default manufacturer logo on boot anymore. It's default to Windows logo. Can someone guide me how to install it to get manufacturer logo back.

Thank you

A:Windows 8.1 boot screen with manufacturer logo

The manufacturer's logo was embedded it the OEM version of Windows that was first installed on your notebook. You had to erase that OEM version of Windows with the Mfg Logo. The Windows version you have now is probably a Microsoft retail version which doesn't have the mfg's logo, only the Microsoft logo.

The OEM version of Windows (Original Equipment Manufacturer) is a customized version of Windows, tailored to install on a PC production line. The manufacturer will sometimes add their logos to it.

The Microsoft retail version of Windows of course only has the Microsoft logo.

To get the logo back, you probably have to get an OEM Windows disc from the original manufacturer and install that. It will probably have the logo. So you have to re-install Windows with the OEM version to get the logo back.

You probably could find Windows wallpaper for your desktop, with the original manufacturer's logo, by using a Google search, if that would help.

Hi, this is my first post here.
Thanks in advance to anyone checking this thread out or offering help. I really appreciate it.
Recently, specifically since 3 days ago I have been experiencing sudden monitor blackouts when playing a video game. Shortly after the black screen, the computer restarts itself. This occurs without warning of any sort.
The game is nothing the computer can't handle, and I even had all the settings down to lowest for extra measure.
Path of Exile, in case anyone is curious.
So the blackout-restart thing occured a few more times before I decided to do a system recovery.
I used Dell Backup and Recovery Manager to restore it to the way it was 3 years ago (by accident). 
That was when it was first unboxed and installed with W7. That means I currently have 90% free space.
Even then the black screen restart thing still happened. The problem still wasn't fixed. The only bright side is that my computer runs faster now.
So far it only occured when I was playing that game, but I feel that will change soon. So I came here for help.
Here is the error message followed by details to the problem:

A:Black screen Error, sudden restart

If the shutdowns only happen when you are playing that game I suspect that there might be a heat problem. The system shuts itself off without warning or error message in those cases.
Make sure that your OS, programs, drivers and security program are up to date. See if any other activity, other than playing a game, will shut the system down.

I have just rebuilt my pc after the processor overheated and killed itself on my original setup.

I now have a Extreme KV2 via k8t800 pro motherboard
an AMD Athlon 64bit 3200 processor (939 pin)

Geforce 6600 AGP Graphics

and I have used the old HD and operating system (80gb Maxtor HD)

I reinstalled windows with the setup disks of the original pc which had windows XP onboard (serial number on a sticker on the back).

I added each of the items one at a time on reboot, and there were no listed conflicts of the drivers.

I installed SP1, with no problems, then SP2. which downloaded from Microsoft no problem, installed no problem, started no problem, got to the Windows XP screen and then quit and rebooted.

I found out how to stop the reboot and have the error codes from the bsod.

0x0000007e (0x000000. . . . . .etc

I updated the drivers for everything on the pc and then because it mentioned the bios I flashed the bios.

I then restored to my save restore in case of failure point and once again the pc runs absolutely fine until I try and install sp2.

I did pick u a worm from somewhere during all my attempts at installing, but now have virus protection and a firewall running.

Is SP2 absolutely necessary, and do I need to purchase a stand alone version of Windows XP (not the bundled version I have currently installed).

I have also tried installing SP2 from disc with the same reboot problem.

All help would be greatly appreciated

A:System error - blue screen and restart

something was mis-managed while files were transfered and it dumped the memory...no big deal

Recently I have had a problem after booting up on my laptop, win xp, sp 2, shortly after about five mins of starting up it will show a Blue screen that has something to do with the "symids.sys" about a memory dump, i only have about 2 secs before it restarts again. This will do this for about 3 times before it will stay on as normal. however recently it has been doing it constantly. I think this file has something to do with the symantecs live update service and this problem occured soon after i used it about a week ago.It's fine on safe mode.Any ideas on how to solve this please? thanks

I am onsite IT and I'm writing on behalf of a user. We have a group policy in place where the computers lock after 15 minutes of inactivity. When the user returns to find his laptop in this state, he is able to log back in, but he's unable to reconnect to the network (despite being connected via hard wireless and wifi). He needs to restart in order to regain network access. When he restarts he gets a blue screen error (attached), but not a BSOD. I have attached the user's machine specs as well as the requested .zip file. I have done some research and found that there may be an issue with drivers, but I am not well-versed in reading the logs to determine which driver may be causing the problem. I would appreciate if you could review the attached log to see if you can determine the problem and advise. Please let me know if you need additional information. Thank you.

A:Blue Screen error (not BSOD) after restart

All of the dumps are old and do not really give us anything to go on, a quick look though your other files show a few oddities, sidebar.exe is set to run on start up 3 times, Microsoft recommended disabling sidebar.exe back in 2012 as it is a security risk, also binkiland.exe which is malware is also set to run at start up.

I think a good place to start would we a full AV and Malwarebytes/superantispyware cleaning of the machine.

A:Blue error screen when i restart my computer

Hi fadingaurora,Welcome to BC HijackThis forum . I am farbar. I am going to assist you with your problem.Please refrain from making any changes to your system (updating Windows, installing applications, removing files, etc.) from now on as it might prolong handling your log and make the job for both of us more difficult.To get an idea about the current condition of you computer download random's system information tool (RSIT) by random/random from here and save it to your desktop.Double click on RSIT.exe to run RSIT.Click Continue at the disclaimer screen.Once it has finished, two logs will open. Please post the contents of both log.txt (<<will be maximized) and info.txt (<<will be minimized)

Note 1:The logs will be created in this folder: C:\rsit

Note 2:The tool takes not more than one minute to scan the system.Tell me:If this is the only computer or you have another computer we can eventually use.If you have a Windows installation CD. Not that we need it now, just in case.You might want to save this page on your favorites, so you can find it again when you return.

If i choose "safe mode" or "command prompt" then a long list of files shows up then i can't do anything. now i have tried a windows recovery disk but i cant seem to get my laptop to run off the disk, so yeah any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:blue error screen and continuous restart

When you choose Safe Mode, a bunch of code scrolls down the screen. Eventually, Safe Mode will load, it may take several minutes. If you leave it for 5-10 minutes and it does not load Safe Mode then you have a problem. Then restart the computer and boot into the Bios (after restart hit Del, F2, F1 or F10 depending on your computer brand or whatever key it says to enter setup on the black screen) In the Bios get to Boot order and change it so that CD rom drive is the first boot device. Save with an F10. Put the bootable XP CD in the drive. When the computer restarts it should say "press any key to boot from CD rom drive"

Hi, My son's pc is in trouble. He had a problem a few weeks ago. I did a system restore and that seemed to take care of it. A few days ago the 2010 security thing took over. His backround on the homepage had been taken over amongst other things. He scanned it with A-squared, found three trojans plus. Deleted the results. Then restarted his computer. I believe that is where we made the fatal error. Now, hitting the f10 key brings you to a screen that has only three choices or f2 opens to DOS? When starting the pc, it goes to the login area. Clicking on his account (the only one) it attempts to log in then immediately logs out to the log in screen again. I can get to the area, from the f10 place that asks for a recovery cd. Any advise would be greatly appreciated. We have other pc's (not infected) in the house. Thanks.

About a week ago my computer began to have random fatal errors. It will show a blue screen for half a second and then restart. Sometimes it would run fine for a while and other times it would restart before Windows even finished loading. I discovered that the longer I left my computer off, the longer it would run when I started it up again.

So this led me to believe that it was an overheating problem. I looked inside and discovered that my video card fan was not spinning when the computer was running. I assumed this was the problem so I took it out and found that the fan was cracked. I ordered a new one online but didn't want to wait a week to be able to use my computer again so I tried replacing the fan with one from an old video card of mine. The old fan wasn't exactly the same but it spins when the computer is on so I figured it was okay. I started up my computer and it was working fine for a while, but after about an hour I got the same error and restart. I checked all my fans again and they are all working.

So now I'm not sure what the problem is. I have a thermometer for my CPU and it never goes higher than about 95 F, which should be fine. I've thought that it might be something other than overheating but that wouldn't explain why it runs better if I leave it off for a while. My video card has worked fine for a long time and I haven't recently installed any other hardware. The only thing I can think is that my video card fan broke and ... Read more

A:Frequent fatal error (blue screen)/restart

Good Morning apollo13,you obviously have determined the processor temp but don't have an idea of the graphics temp.
You could try Everest Home and see if it might give some bearing on the problem in it's sensors page.
You might cut and paste it here.

The voltages indicated may also have some assistive analytical merit.

Quite often the video cards tend to only absorb limited cookups before they complain.

Edit. An afterthought, in that the system is so sensitive, could you possibly beg, borrow, steal or buy an old PCI simple video card.
These are commonly available for a couple of dollars from swap meets and are incredibly useful for troubleshooting these kinds of problems.

If you do this, ensure your current video card (graphics adapter or whatever name) is removed.

It is possible your current video card is suffering a runaway condition and possibly also affecting your power supply.

The recovery disk also let me check some things to look for errors, but it didn't find anything.But, a really weird thing is that sometimes I can't get the thing to do anything at all. Sometimes, you turn it on or reboot and nothing at all happens. It doesn't try to load anything.The manufacturer's boot up screen doesn't even come up that says "Sony Vaio". It just has a black screen with the arrow there. When it does this I can't even get anything to happenwhen I try to boot from a cd rom disk. I can hear the cd rom drive spin, but all I get is that blank screen with the arrow and not even the manufacturer's boot up screen and nothing from the cd rom either!This seems to be happening more frequently too. Actually, now it happens most of the time. Then, I'll have to just let it sit turned off for awhile and then turn it back on and it will start workingagain, but still won't load windows.I'm totally confused and frustrated with it.

My computer has been working fine without issue until late last night.

I turned it on and went to get a drink and noticed that the computer had shut off.

Surprised, I returned to turn it back on and then I saw the motherboard logo and immediately a blue screen that said, "Recovery, Your Computer Needs to be Repaired." and along with that, an error code of: 0xc000000e.

I searched for hours last night for a solution but nothing has worked so far.

I used this guide: http://www.fixedbyvonnie.com/2013/12.../#.Uyfvp17SaA8

and was able to see "Windows Boot Manager" in the UEFI (BIOS), but when I restarted, it again went back to "Microsoft Windows" and gives the same error!

I also went into the "Volume 3" where the FAT32 100MB is located and tried to rebuild the BCD there. I got the "Operation Successfully Completed" message showing one Windows Installation. Now, the UEFI/BIOS shows "Windows Boot Manager" correctly but STILL SHOWS THE SAME error - and won't boot!

Really need help with this - I can't figure out why this happened but more importantly, how to fix this so that I can use my computer again!

Hello, I've had an Asus Notebook (Asus G60Vx-rbbx05) for about a year now, and just yesterday in the middle of the usual web browsing it blue screens out of nowhere. I turn it back on and every time I gets to 'starting windows' it's followed with the blue screen and immediately restarts. The blue screen usually mentions 'iastor.sys', but I don't know exactly what this pertains to. I tried power cycling, removing the battery, various safe modes with varying success. Sometimes it would get to the desktop before the blue screen, other times it wouldn't get that far. One time I did get safe mode to start and it ran fine while I moved all my important data to an External hard drive.

I was still unable to get Windows 7 to run consistently though, so I went for my usual course of action which is to just use my Asus-provided Windows 7 Recovery disk to get a clean version of Windows 7. However, to my horror, at the end of the recovery process, Windows booted up, got to the 'Windows Starting' screen and then promptly blue screens. Now the notebook resets before I even get a look at the blue screen, it just flashes for an instant. Upon the automatic reboot, it takes me to a Windows error screen with options for safe mode, start windows normally, etc. However, this screen asks for a Windows installation to correct whatever software/hardware problem it's encountering. Only thing is, all my notebook came with, as far as I remember, is the Win7 ... Read more
