Interrupted during wake up, can't boot anymore

Q: Interrupted during wake up, can't boot anymore

Hey !

I had a very very disturbing experience in which I was forced to shut down the computer, but failed and accidentally sent it to sleep.
Unfortunately, it never managed to wake up. It stayed during half an hour blocked early in the restarting process... I took my chance with a hard-reset.

And then it becomes insane. It gives me the cold shoulder, just hanging in a "Reverting changes" task. It's been a good while too.

I stand in awe wondering how is it even possible to break my setup like this. Considering the damn thing came with no restoring CD of any kind, on a scale of it's all fine to you're screwed, how exactly would you rate me ?

Thanks for helping !

Preferred Solution: Interrupted during wake up, can't boot anymore

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: Interrupted during wake up, can't boot anymore

It might have a recovery partition where you could revert it to factory settings.

If you can get into the bios enable the boot menu which should activate F-12 to show the boot menu on startup.
If so choose 10 & get into recovery options.

Hello. I have a problem with my PC. For some reason for about a year my PC can't wake up after it goes to sleep. I've reinstalled Windows 7, but on a newly installed, clean OS the problem still stays. On Windows 8.1(which I had only for a while because it was awful) it was the same. I'm not sure if it's a windows issue, hardware problem or something.
The thing is, sometimes my PC can't wake up. Not always, but it's very often. It goes to sleep well, but when I wan't to wake it up it starts, I can hear fans working, and then stops. Just like that, as if the power was cut off. Then it starts again and stops once more. And it goes like that forever. I have to unplug it from power and wait a bit, only then it starts, but from hibernation.

Does anyone knows how to fix that? Why does it do such a thing? I tried looking up google for such problems but most of them were of USB mouses/keyboard not waking up or actually waking up PC. I couldn't find my problem.

My PC:
Gigabyte P35-DS3
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.4GHz
3072MB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260
Windows 7 32-bit

A:PC can't wake up anymore.

It may be a power issue. Sleep is a low power state that holds all information in memory. If the power at any time is lost that information is gone and it's impossible to wake up.
Hibernation doesn't need power because it writes to disk.

I assume you have a desktop computer and are using Hybrid Sleep which can be useful in case of power outage. One option is to switch from Hybrid Sleep to Hibernate and you won't run into these problems anymore.

I used hybrid sleep for a year without any problems.

Suddenly, since this week, Windows can't wake from it. It starts loading, I can hear the fans and the HDD spinning, but the screen stays black.

I then have to power it off completely and turn off the PSU for a few seconds to boot into Windows again.


Everything else works fine (normal booting, restarting, regular sleep, hibernate...).


I already:
- reinstalled Windows
- tested RAM with Memtest
- tested the HDD for errors
- reset BIOS

Any ideas??

Hi. I prefer the Windows setting for closing the lid to be "do nothing". Up until now, my X1 Yoga still woke up when opening the lid, when I put it to sleep manually and closed the lid beforehand, which I found useful. It now stopped doing so, presumably after updating the BIOS to 1.36 on Saturday. Now I need to press the power button to wake it up. However, I couldn't find a BIOS setting for this. It does wake up upon opening when I select "sleep" when closing the lid, but I don't want that. Is it possible to get back this behaviour (or was it a bug in the first place?)?

I have a fairly new Acer netbook that has suddenly started to have a booting issue. Before the problem started, the normal sequence was that just after the power button was pushed, the cursor would show up at the upper left corner of a blank screen, and two or three seconds later the words, "Windows starting" would come onto the center of the screen and the booting would continue as normal.

Recently, however, the booting process started freezing at the point with the cursor in upper left of the black screen. I learned that if I hit control/Alt/delete the screen would go black for a couple seconds, and then the booting process would resume as normal with the "starting windows" coming on again.

I should also mention that using control/Alt/Del doesn't always work the first time either. Sometimes I have to do it two, three or four times to get the booting going again.

Does anyone know what may have caused this problem, and more importantly, how to correct it?

Naturally these things always happen at the worst time...last night I'm resizing a partition on an external hard drive and browsing at the same time, which I think had a hand in crashing my laptop. Apparently this happens all the time with Paragon Partition Manager, as Google suggested this topic (Interrupted operation: Insert the Recovery CD - Paragon Community Discussion Forums) before I even finished my query. It says I need to fix the Master Boot Record. Here's where I am right now:

1. "Interrupted Operation" error when rebooting. Windows asked for a recovery CD.
2. Changed boot order from HD to CD drive.
3. Refused to click through my OEM recovery CD because it only appeared to include the option to format my laptop
4. My laptop has a barebones optional OS which I can use only to play music and visit websites. From here I can see that my HD is still intact.
5. Tried System Recovery Options but OEM CD wouldn't allow it.
6. Bought a copy of W7 from Office Max in an attempt to get to the recovery options screen.
7. It worked, but before I could get to the command prompt to follow MBR - Restore Windows 7 Master Boot Record, Windows recognized a startup problem and offered to fix it automatically...so I accepted.
8. Automatic fix did not work. Not only does booting from HD still show "Interrupted Operation" message, the W7 cd no longer loads.

Aloha,

I'm helping out a friend. He has a Sony Vaio laptop. He tried to download the latest XP system updates a couple times and turned off the computer during the download. After the first time everything was fine, but after the 2nd time he must have interrupted it at a critical point. Now XP won't boot, goes through the XP screen and once in a while a message pops up very briefly that says not enough virtual memory and then reboots.

I can't get it to boot in safe mode either. Also tried to boot from the XP CD and again restarts on its own.

We'd like to fix it so he does not lose any info on the hard drive.

Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

I just got a new Acer laptop with Vista and a Windows 7 upgrade. I installed the upgrade, and everything went fine, but after I shut it down it went into auto installing updates.

As I was on critical battery and couldn't find my charger, it shut down before completion. Now whenever I try to restart I get an error screen (which is only on for a second or two so I can't get the numbers off it) and then it tries system repair, which fails, and if I try system restore, this also fails.

I would have been happy to re-install the OS, as with it being new I have no important files on, but didn't get a Vista disc with the laptop and my Windows 7 disc is just an update disc.

Any advice?

Thanks,

Steven

Good morning,

I have a 4 years and a half old Sony VAIO computer with windows 7 home.

The computer was working properly until a month ago or such. Sure, maybe a bit slow since it's a bit old already yet it was working quite decently.

Unfortunately, one month ago the computer ran out of energy while it was starting (when Windows was initializing) When I tried to turn it on once again, I discovered it would go into an infinite loop trying to restore Windows 7 without success. I tried restarting it in every single mode, yet it wouldn't happen.

I tried to fix the error by using f8 and guiding myself by the assistance of the computer but did was a failure as well.

All I managed to achieve was to make a scan with FRST.

I would appreciate any help/advice on what to do next.

I wanted to set up Ubuntu on my computer, and followed the instructions in the first answer to this thread: dual boot - How to install Ubuntu alongside Windows 7/8 - Ask Ubuntu

As instructed, I created a logical partition using EaseUS software. I did this on my H:/ drive, a hard disk drive (whereas Windows 7 was installed on C:, and SSD).

After a mandatory reboot for the new partition changes, I did not immediately go to install Ubuntu, although I had Live USB to do so. Instead, if I remember properly, I booted into Windows to make sure everything was OK, but only to find out that some "Windows could not boot properly", giving me the option to 'Launch Startup Repair' - which I did, but to no avail. All it did was reported that some 2 system files were missing or corrupt.

I then installed Ubuntu on a third drive because I still needed it to perform some benchmarking. I did this using the 'install alongside windows 7' option.
But now that I don't need Ubuntu anymore, all I am interested in is getting back to Windows, while keeping all the files and programs intact.

How should I go about fixing this? Delete the logical partition on the other drive? I also have that Windows installation CD, and I'm thinking its repair options could be useful - but not having a whole lot of self-confidence, I don't know what steps exactly to take to preserve my files.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Hello,

I am studying for my A+ certification and I wanted to try to install Recovery Console on my PC. I set the CMOS boot order to first boot from the CD ROM drive. I put my XP Professional installation CD in and restarted the computer. Once the XP setup program started running it looked like it was copying files, which scared me because I thought it would ask me before it did anything. So then eventually it got to a menu screen and I decided to press F3 and quit the setup, without installing Recovery Console. I went back into CMOS and reset the boot order to boot from the hard disk drive again, then saved and exited. However now it won't let me boot into Windows anymore, but rather prompts me to insert a bootable floppy or CD-ROM, which is obviously not what I want. I think I may have erased or copied over Boot.ini, and possibly other files. I want to go back to my previous settings before any of this occurred, and I need to keep all of my previous data, settings, programs, etc... in other words I don't want anything erased or changed at all. I'm hoping somebody can provide me step-by-step instructions on how to do this. I would greatly appreciate any help. I am using Microsoft Windows XP Professional SP3. I built the PC myself, it is not a store bought PC.

bootrec /scanos returns 0. Bcd file seems fine when I take it through bcdedit. Renaming the bcd file and trying to rebuild one doesn't work either as it says there's no installation found.

I did not touch any partitions nor files btw, everything is still there and in tact as far as I know.

today I was on win 10 but needed to reboot to 7. Upon doing so I hit this message:

It then gave me the option to boot to win10 as it is the next boot option on the list. Win 10 is now giving me the blue screen "memory management error" although I have been able to get into win10 after some more rebooting.

I ran SFC scanner and it told me that there were some problems that it cannot fix.

Everything is unplugged apart from mouse, keyboard hdmi to screen and ethernet cable. Unplugging the win10 drive from the mobo and switching the win7 drive to another port has not helped.

Has my ssd failed? has win 10 done an update that has caused this problem? It did update today, in fact the first error message I got was after win10 shut down, and when I booted into it again it installed some updates before launching.

I have just purchased an HP Pavilion desktop from Currys to replace my old desktop running Windows Vista.  Although faster than my old desktop to boot up, it performs miserably when compared to my HP Envy notebook.  When left for a while it takes 90 seconds to wake up when my HP Envy and the old Vista desktop are instant. Comparing with the HP Envy, both are running the same version of Windows 10 and have the same memory.  The only difference is the processor.  The Envy has  an Intel 2.60 GHz and the Pavilion has an AMD 3.6 GHz.  Both have had McAfee disabled and the only different software running is my email client, Windows Live Mail on the Envy and Mozilla Thunderbird on the Pavilion. On initial power up the Envy shows the welcome screen in 3 seconds, the Pavilion takes 90 seconds.  Wake up from sleep mode is instant on the Envy but 90 seconds on the Pavilion (but only 4 seconds if it has 'just' gone to sleep). I expected similar performance so I am dissappointed with the Pavilion.  Does anyone else experience this slow response?  Are there any settings I can adjust?  Could it be Mozilla Thunderbird? Any comments or ideas will be most welcome,Thanks.

Hi everyone

The story is a little long
3 weeks ago, I had my computer working, and suddenly, it stopped booting windows, not even the logo show on screen, also no error code or anything. I couldn't enter diagnostic or safe mode (just bios). I had to format and reinstall windows 8 because any restore options worked.

Then a week ago, again it stopped booting, no error code, no anything, but this time, it bothered me that just 2 weeks before happened the same, so I started checking everything, so I took my Hard Drive, and put it in another computer, and it worked with no problem, windows booted, just not in my computer.

I started to look for solutions, and one was to use the command bootrec /scanos, and i got suprised that no windows installation was found. Eventually I had to speak with Microsoft tech, and they said it was my components because they were old, and they actually are (8 years), but I wasn't convinced that was it.

Before getting Windows 8 Pro, I had installed Windows 8 release preview, and it worked for months with no problem.

I thought that of course the fulll version would be heavier for my pc, so I installed Windows 7 again (had it installed for years before w8 release preview).

And now the bad part

after a couple of hours having the W7 installed, it won't boot either.

It freezes at this point and theres nothing I can do, I try entering bios, nothing. Restart computer, exact same problem. I gave it an hour or so and went back, and now i'm at the origional problem.

It was running perfectly fine the night before, I didnt install anything new, or mess with any hardware. Any ideas?
 

A:Can't Boot PC anymore

seems I always seem to figure it out after posting here, and its always something stupid.

Somehow my USB external hard drive had fried either at that moment, or somehow magically last night. I tried to see if there was some sort of hardware problem and booted up the PC with just the PSU plugged in. I heard the beep. Excited i plugged in the monitor, windows was loading. after i plugged everything in I see the error "Windows was unable to recognize USB device" I restart my computer and it freezes on BIOS. Unplug the external HD, unfrozen. Going to leave the post up for anyone that just happens to come across a similar problem, but for me...issue solved.

A:Ssd won't boot anymore

WELL, you didn't say what SSD you have. BAD!
But, it sounds like you had the same experience that I had a few months back, when my three month old PNY SSD decided one day that it didn't want to work anymore. I called PNY, from whom I bought the drive, but they would not do anything without the original invoice. So I was stuck, with a worthless piece of crap that I could do nothing with.
I got right on my backup drive, pulled up Amazon.com and ordered a new "SanDisk, 128GB, SSD" and requested two day delivery.

Now it's several months later and my SanDisk SSD is still working like a champ. It came with the SanDisk Dashboard, which includes the "Trim" program to keep the SSD in top shape.

Sounds like you need a new SSD. I strongly recommend a "SanDisk" SSD.

Good Luck, and Happy Holidays!

M previous boot was a Samsung 840 pro 256gb and it worked like a charm. I'm running the latest version of Win8.

* Ran out of space on my 840 Pro and purchased a 500gb Samsung 850 EVO which had plenty of space and I successfully migrated over to the new drive a couple weeks ago.

* I've been using Acronis 2015 for backups and an external 4tb WD drive for these backups.

* Today I went to backup the NEW boot drive and saw I had a very large backup for the old boot SSD. In Acronis you have to boot to their program straight out of BIOS to access and erase the old backups, which I did.

* NOW I can't boot to the new Samsung 500gb drive for some reason. I've gone into BIOS and changed boot order to the 500GB but I just get a blinking cursor and a black screen when I reboot.

* However, if I change the boot order in BIOS to the OLD SSD it boots fine AND recognizes the 500gb and all it's data! What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for any help you can give~

Well, I now have an unbootable computer. I don't know what's wrong. When it tries to boot, it gets a BSOD, and it goes by too fast for me to possibly read it. I heard you can change this option by getting into a special menu with F8, but F8 doesn't do anything for me. I heave the option of loading Startup Repair, too, but its SLOOOOOOOOOOOOW! There's no way this can be right! (Maybe I need to put the harddrive on an eternal reader and grab the dumps.)
 
Prior to this, the OS was laggy. I was playing music with Winamp, and it k.....ept pausing. Prior to that, I had a mess where all the programs became unresponsive and I had to force a reboot. Now, this may be unrelated, but prior to all of this, I had not one but two harddrives start to fail. One of them did fail. Now, I'm being good as far as I know. I have a surge protector on this stuff. Is there a surge coming from within? Is it time for a new motherboard, and is that the only thing that will save me? Am I smarter than I look, or not?

So, my box was acting a little fragile lately - Stuff falling off my desk onto it would make it blue screen and load back up.
Naturally I opened it up and looked inside and found one of my RAM was a bit loose - It was in there most  the way, but out just enough so that the prong that holds it in wasn't in the slot for it. I pushed it in and secured it properly, screwed the cover back on, plugged everything in.
 
and now it won't get passed the DELL boot up screen. F2/F12 do nothing, and the loading bar freezes about a half way in. I'm running vista(naturally), all my peripherials are USB, but I don't think its the keyboard just not working that's causing the problem. I'm tried booting it with everything plugged in, and nothing plugged in.

Start tapping the F8 key immediately after pressing the power button, this will open the Advanced Boot Options.  This will look similar to the image below.
 

 
Use the up or down keys to navigate to Safe Mode, then press the Enter key.

I cannot turn on my PC. When I turn on the power supply it does a repeating, fast, high pitched, but quiet beeping sound (similar to some bird chirping). The power button on my PC doesn't respond at all, even the fans won't start. I tried disconnecting pretty much everything from my motherboard and adding more and more things slowly to no avail. I also tried out a new PSU but the same thing happens. If I disconnect the 24 pin cable, only then do I get a different sound (a continous high pitched sound). Before this I accidently plugged in the old PSU's FDD cable into one of the F_USB slots. Could I have killed my mobo with that? If not what could be the problem? How can I sort out if it's a bad mobo or something else?

Is there any way to get this to boot in safe mode or from a disc so we
can repair or get some data off?

A:can't boot anymore

The CD-ROM needs to configured in the BIOS boot order to be first in the list. It may already be so in your machine since your recovery disk would have to boot that way.

If you can do that, you can try creating a bootable CD with the recovery console on it per my suggestion in post 6 here:

http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/454300-xp-error-driving-me-insane.html

The beep when you startup and the prompt for f1 or f2 may indicate a misconfigured BIOS -- you might look for an option to reload the BIOS/Setup defaults there, and see if that particular problem is resolved. It is different from the missing or damaged "system" hive.

Hi, My attempt to setup my X1 Yoga (20FQ) laptop to dual boot windows 10 and fedora 24 failed and I am not able to boot on windows anymore  More specifically I installed fedora 24 while already having a windows 10 setup. During the installation the fedora installation manager has configured the partitions for dual boot. The installation was successful but to my surprise the grub 2 entry for the windows 10 didn't work anymore.  I inspected the partitions and found that the windows are untouched. However the ' /EFI/Microsoft/Boot/bootmgfw.efi' file is missing from the boot partition. I think I need to recover it so that I am able to boot again to windows. Do you know how I can recover the file? I noticed that there was no windows 10 installation disk in the X1 packaging. Also what's the right setup for dual booting the two operating systems? Regards, Kostas

Hi all

I recently clean re-installed Win7 Pro 64 and now the Power Options keep reverting to High Performance every time I re-boot and even on wake up. If I set it to a power plan every time it works fine that one time.

I didn't make any changes to hardware/bios from previous install. The only change is that I first installed XP x86 to a separate redundant HD to enable a legacy scanner for which no 64bit drivers are available and I only boot into XP on an occasional as and when basis. I didn't make any changes to Windows boot manager & can only boot into it from F8.

I also downloaded a legacy game from Steam which is running happily on Win7. I rapidly decided that I hate Steam so I set it not to run at startup, only play offline and kill all associated process after closing the game. Again, I'm not running the game on a daily basis so it's unlikely this is affecting this persistant behaviour.

Grateful for any ideas.

Ian

Hello,

My PC:

Manufacturer: Acer
Intel Core Quad Q6600

My PC is 3.5 years old and had it shares of little problems like every PC, yesterday I got a BSoD, along the lines of "PAGE FAULT IN NON PAGED AREA". Had quite a few number of BSoD's before but usually I quickly found out the reason for them. Or some which I never found a reason for, but didn't not have any immediate effect on the computer.

However, this time when rebooting it would get to the screen where you can "start windows like normal", or some sort or Problem Fix. Which ever option you would choose it would loop (usually with a restart) back to that screen, sometimes also changing the language from my native language to English. I attempted to boot in safe mode, but this would not boot at all and more or less go back to the same options. Eventually the computer would be going to a screen suggesting to use the repair disc (Because windows could not be started) saying:

File: \Windows\system32\Winload.exe or various other files, for example at the moment it is a file called uliahci.sys
Status: 0xc0000221 (with the uliahchi.sys)
Info: Can not load windows because an essential file is damaged or missing.

I am currently stuck on this screen and I've tried various things, will list them below. Sometimes there will also be another screen popping up:

Hi Guys. I really need your help.
I have 3 drives. Vista installed on primary boot drive (C. Everything used to work fine until I installed XP on my second bootdrive (D.

In fact, when the XP installation finished and the system was booting up for the first time, it really creeped me out with some weird non-standard characters on the post screen. For a sec I felt my BIOS is messed up or something...

It didn't even let me boot into XP until I set D: as my priority1 boot device. XP now boots fine (although it feels like it's taking a lot longer than usual) but when I switched priority1 boot device to C: my system hangs at the "Verifying DMI Pool Data" message.

I then booted back into XP and tried different tools like VistaBootPRO and EasyBCD to fix my boot files but nothing works. I can still read files from my all drives whilst booted into D: (XP) so thankfully my C: is not dead but if anyone has any experience in this area, I would very much appreciate your help.

What I want is to have some boot option at system startup to boot into either Vista or XP, simple (or not so simple) as that.

I tried going to ASUS to DL the drivers to load up but nothing is working. I am not sure what to do here.

Hi all,

I have a Dell 8100 PC running Windows XP Pro/Sp2 with a internal IDE Benq CD-RW drive as the 2nd device on the cable. The 1st device is a Pioneer DVD-RW writer.

I can read CDs okay from the CD-RW drive but all of a sudden I can NOT use the CD-RW drive to boot up system! Last time I tried was probably 3-4 months ago.

I go to boot menu as system is starting to boot up and select IDE CD-ROM Device -- system Beeps twice then it says:
"Strike F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility". I hit F1 -- same thing!

Drive is listed as okay in device manager.

I have double checked devices in BIOS, all is okay. Even set CD drive as first boot device there, but after saving setup and rebooting - system still boots from HDD with a bootable CD in drive! Even tried a Ubuntu live CD and same thing happens.

Does anyone have any idea what problem might be and the resolution

Thank you very much!
Sincerely,
Cin

Hello,

I'm having a problem with booting into my Windows 7.

I have 2 HDDs. Disk A has a size of 1TB while disk B is 300GB.
Disk A has 1 partition, with Windows 7 x64 installed. I've been using it for months now without any problems.
Disk B has 2 partitions. Both partitions were empty, though they were both formatted, one being 100gb and the other one being 200gb.

Now I installed Windows XP on the 100gb partition (Disk B), thinking it wouldn't give any problems as both OS were on different hdds. After I installed Windows XP, I couldn't boot into Windows 7 anymore. I selected Disk A to be the first boot device in the BIOS, but it still wouldn't boot into Windows 7. I forgot what it actually said when I boot though, stupid me
Booting into the newly Windows XP didn't give any problems.

Then I tried to fix it by installing the Boot Manager of Paragon Partition Manager (stupid me again ). I obviously installed it inside Windows XP (the 100gb partition of Disk B).
I tried to boot into Disk A with Windows 7 again, now it loaded the (Paragon)Boot Manager. It only shows "Windows XP", and nothing happens when I press enter.
I really don't get how this happened, since I installed the (Paragon)Boot Manager on Disk B, but it appears when I try to boot into Disk A.

A:Can't boot into Windows 7 anymore

When you do something like that you set XP to blow away the Windows 7 mbr unknowingly.
You need to install the older OS first so that Win 7 would have booted both. Use of Vista BootPro should boot them both if Paragon didn't destroy the Win 7 partition. I don't trust anything they make after a few beta tests really went south on me.
