Windows 7 crashes on loading screen

Q: Windows 7 crashes on loading screen

I have been having problems with my family computer where Windows gets to the laoding screen and crashes, which it does in a loop and then occasioanlly turns on. I had this problem a while back but a change of hard drive and a clean install of Windows 7 (it was previously XP) seemed to of cured it. But last night the problem returned, there was a BSOD out of no where and then it returned into its looping process.

I switched out the current hard drive, RAM and CPU with my other gaming computer and it also caused that to crash. So I first took out the hard drive and it still crashed but swithing the RAM again seemed to of cured the problem. However, when I put different RAM in the computer with the initial problems it still came up with the same problem.

Preferred Solution: Windows 7 crashes on loading screen

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.)

Ok, I have basically no computer knowledge, but I will describe my problem to the best of my ability. The other day my cousin came over for a barbeque, he is supposably the family computer genius so I let him on my computer. He started editing the registry, saying he was removing so called "viruses". I have no knowledge of what he added/removed to/from the registry during this time but when I next went on the computer after he had left (all he did after editing the registry was exit the registry editer) I was unable to click on any of my desktop short cuts or the buttons on the menu bar such as start. I then rebooted by holding the power button thinking everything would be fine but the computer froze after the windows xp loading screen, showing the screen where you login to your account, except with only a windows xp logo in the middle of the screen, no login tabs. I tried rebooting numerous times but the problem persisted. I have no idea where to go from here. If any extremely smart and computerly talented people have any ideas about solving my problem, please explain in full detail, as I have only basic computer knowledge. I may not be able to answer any questions you have for several days as I can only do this at a friend?s house now. Thanks for reading this and I apologise for any bad spelling/grammar. I am only fourteen years old.

Hi all,

I have a problem with my new computer. I am also new to windows 7 and am still getting used to everything. On the first start up of the day windows crashes to a BSOD just after the loading screen. I start windows repair on the restart and let it do its thing, then windows starts up fine. I doubt that windows repair did anything as no messages came up on startup or during the repair.

I don't have any information of the BSOD, my motherboard restarts after the crash and I don' get a chance to read the problem, I will post the problem when I have worked out how to stop it automatically restarting.

The computer runs fine after it is "warmed up" so to speak, and I am guessing thats why it starts after Start up Recovery has done its thing which appears to be nothing

I have attached 2 minidump files from previous crashes, windows didn't make one of the most recent.

Anywho, any help would be greatly appreciated, it's not really a problem but more of a nuisance.

A:Windows Crashes to BSOD after loading screen

ok, heres an update.

I stopped windows restarting after a crash and I could write down some info about the BSOD that came up most recently. It had the stop codes 0x0000008e (0XC0000005, 0x82CD9A8A, 0x8C7936A4, 0x00000000) with an error with NTFS.SYS PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA.

Windows didn't just start up this time, I had to run startup recovery, and this time it said that it couldn't fix the problem and sent up an error in the system file integrity check part of the test with a code of 0x490.

I told windows to make a full dump file, so I cant send it my bad. I have changed but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

First post so here goes....

Just built a new pc using asus k8n mobo.

Formatted both hard disks 40gb maxtor ide hdd and 200gb sata hdd.

Installed windows xp on the sata drive.

On reboot after the format and file transfer stage, the computer froze on the windows xp loading screen (the one with the logo and the bar the goes across) It doesnt total freeze, the bar keeps going but never gets past that screen.

So I booted from cd again, froze in the windows installed on the disk checking of the sata drive.

Unplugged the SATA drive and booted from cd fine, installed windows xp on ide drive and installed and booted fine with just the ide.

Plugged the sata drive back in and reformatted it so now hav ide with windows, sata as backup. freezes on boot screen?!

what could be causing this? how do i fix it?? driving me NUTS!!
sorry for the long description!
 

A:Windows XP crashes on loading screen with SATA plugged in

Just thought of other useful info....

When I try and boot with windows installed on the IDE and the SATA not plugged in now, it comes up with "Windows could not start because of a computer disk hardware etc etc Could not read from the selected boot disk. Check boot path and disk hardware"

Ive checked boot device priority and only IDE drive, Floppy and DVD-RW drive are present there?

hope it helps to work it out!!

My desktop pc has recently started to not load up / boot when I turn it on.

When it manages to turn itself on it all works ok. However oftentimes I have to turn it on and turn it off repeatedly until it finally starts to function.

After going through the same problem today, the pc finally turned on properly and I got into Windows. A few moments after that, the electricity was cut.

Now the pc manages to load up until the Windows XP logo and then crashes. At the loading screen the pc makes three grinding sounds (don't know how to call this... my pc is purring at me ). A blue screen appears for a split second and the pc reboots. No matter what option I select, be it to load in safe mode, last good configuration, and so on, the pc always resets at the XP loading process.

I believe it has something to do with hardware because of the issue with the pc intermittently not even booting up.

I am not too savvy when it comes to pc's, can someone suggest what may be wrong?

Hello.

I was having some problems with a virus I could not get rid of for the past few days. I've been working on this for a few days so I don't remember everything I did to end up at this point. This is my current situation:

I did msconfig (I think) and went into the boot.ini, enabled "start in safe mode", after rebooting I have not been able to get into windows again. This is what I have done since then: I have done a windows repair, after that didn't I went into Recovery Console and did a chkdsk /r. Still no good. I disabled restart on failure, and the blue screen says 0x0000007E, fltmgr.sys. When I check the listsvc in Recovery console it says fltmgr.sys is disabled. I tried enable fltmgr.sys but it just says "the registry entry for the fltmgr.sys service cannot be located. Check that the name of the last service is specified correclty."

Help!

Hi,
I have a Gateway laptop running Windows XP Home Edition (SP2). During the XP loading screen (the black screen with XP logo and green status bar) I would get a blue screen of death. The error message of this BSOD was:

STOP: c0000135 {Unable To Locate Component}
This application has failed to start because basekgjl32 was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

I was able to boot into safe mode and run a scan using AVG 7.5. I do not know what version of virus definitions I had.

AVG found a file named "basekgjl32.dll" in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 directory. AVG classified it as a trojan horse named BackDoor.Generic9.AJUI. AVG successfully healed it. I tried rebooting to see if that fixed the problem, but it did not. I still receive the same BSOD. To make matters worse, now I cannot boot into safe mode. I now receive the same BSOD when I try.

I have researched this BackDoor trojan and similar ones like it, but I have yet to find any methods of successfully removing it or dealing with this type of scenario.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew

Battlefield 2142 works perfectly fine on my computer, on this game i played it after I installed battlefield 2(I got the collectors edition) and it worked fine(this is on SP) only it was a bit laggy/slow. Then I installed the whole thing, and i put click on the icon and it would show a loading screen, that woudl go poof then a black screen blinks up and then nothing happends.

This is what ive tried

compatibility techniques(with properties)
Couple tricks i learned online
updated direct X
updated My drivers
and some other things.

In my opinion its Vista, I don't know why it doesn't like this game... Can anyone assist me? Brand new game I got, I got tired of playing the same games over and over...

While installing only 1 error came up a few times

"Battlefield 2 was only tested on 32 bit color"\

Only error I got.
Can anyone give me a simple solution(Buying another computer isn't a solution, this is brand new.)

Also I would like to note I waited a WEEK INA HALF just to receive a confirmation email from this site to make a account.

Basically I have been having alot of problems with my computer and I have come to try and ignore the display issues as mentioned in previous threads BUT lately I have been having other issues... My internet browser takes an eternity to load anything and my WMP seems to crash whenever I use it. I can't use windows media center either because it gives me a blackened file windows where the windows media center startup screen is supposed to be.

Also yesterday night I was unfortunate enough to receive a blue screen with a bunch of error codes so I shutdown my computer unplugged it and went to bed... Anyways yeah I know I should just reinstall my os and be done with this but I already did a repair install not too long ago and it took me weeks to get my computer back to where it was at (12 hours a day with no job lol)...

So yeah I don't know where I should begin with this mess of a computer but if anyone would like to help me with these new problems please respond below.

Also here is a link to my old thread (Please note I found a workaround to the whole arrange by issue but the file display issues are still 100% present and annoying as ever): "Arrange By" anything but "Folder" won't work... How do I fix???

Windows Xp crashs during windows loading screen and reboots. Displays a blue screen with no errors on it only the stop information, 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xBA52F380, 0xBA52f07c,0x8AD5980F). This blue screen stays up for less than a second, needed to video record it to get the numbers. Windows doesn't load in normal mode, or any of the safe modes. I have tried chkdsk /r and /p. Bootcfg /scan fails, and /rebuild also fails. I have also cleared Cmos on my motherboard, which didn't work either. I also tested the ram, tried booting with 1 of 3 sticks in 3 times rotating the sticks, I wouldn't think all 3 would fail at the same time. The HD does show serial numbers tho and appears to be working. This all started when i was running a virus scanner, it crashed, and the problems started. Any help is appreciated, I have yet to try fixmbr, and a repair install. The fixmbr says it could cause a problem with the HD, that is the reason I haven't tried it yet. Any suggestions or help is appreciated. Thanks

Hello,

I had recently done some modification to my wife's computer and now it will no longer load up. It goes through the hardware screen for the motherboard, begins to show the Windows 7 icon, but suddenly stops and restarts itself as the icon begins to come together.

Today, I swapped out her motherboard, processor, and graphics card with new ones. All of the cables are hooked up correctly, but I'm unsure what the problem could be. Below are the parts I have put in it now:
Sapphire Radeon R7 250 (graphics card)
ASUS M5A78-M LX Plus (motherboard)
AMD FX 6-Core 3.5 GHZ 14.0 MB (processor)
If there's more that's needed to be posted, I will look it up, but that's what was put into it today.

I have run the Repair tool several times, but it doesn't fix my problem.. Any ideas why Windows refuses to start? Is it a hardware problem? I believe, last time I checked it worked fine in my laptop.

The HDD that I'm using from my laptop is a WD Scorpio Blue WD3200BE

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible. If you are overclocking STOP You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking. To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:




* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine. * Zip up the copy. * Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button. *If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:




* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter. * Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button. * Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked. * Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies). * Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump. * OK your way out. * Reboot if changes have been made.

Greetings BleepingComputer,
 
I am having issue with my machine playing games. Here are the circumstances of the crashes:
 
Whenever I open up any game (it didnt used to be this way) once I get to the main menu and/or the exact moment I reach 100% of loading a level, the machine crashes and instantly reboots (no BSOD just a brief shut down into a restart). You should also know that this is a fresh HDD, right off the shelf with a fresh install of EVERYTHING.
 
Some of the procedures I have done: I have uninstalled and reinstalled my graphics drivers. Installed older versions of graphics drivers. Uninstalled and reinstalled games. Reseated my video card and RAM. Run any and all programs as administrator. Run any and all programs in compatibility mode for windows 7.
 
Some procedures I have failed to accomplish: I have tried using the program "WhoCrashed" to get the dump files of crashes but I/it is unable to obtain them. I am unsure what I am doing wrong and hopfully you can point me in the right direction, should you need those files... which I imagine you will.
 
Hopfully what I have described to you is an adequate starting point, although I am certain I am missing details. Below you will find reports from the various programs that this site has recommended I provide to help diagnose the problem. You will also find attached reports that come from the BSOD Pinned Thread.

After I clicked "OK" the system restarted and it was the same story: SETUP IS STARTING SERVICES and the error popped, AGAIN. What should I do?

Thanks in advance,

I recently purchased a laptop, it was working fin until yesterday when i went to turn it on it kept restarting after the windows loading screen i was able to get to the windows boot menu, it did the same thing when i tried to boot in safe mode. so i turned off auto restart on system failure and i got this STOP error

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The Session Manager Initialization system Process terminated unexpectedly with a
status of 0xc0000034 (0x0000000 0x0000000).
The system has been shut down.

I have tried many time to reinstall windows the first few times it was detecting all of the media readers as hard drives and said nothing inserted. so i turned them off in the BIOS after that it was not detecting the hard drive(s) at all. i cannot access the hard drive with the windows repair option ether i am not sure what is causing this because when i try to boot it normally i do see the windows XP loading screen but then i get the error so it is accessing the hard drive.

fairly sure it is a hard drive issue i don't no much about this topic. i know there is 320GB of storage. 2x 160GB SATA hard drives using some sort or RAID drivers or something to combine them? not to sure here. in the bois there was an option to select between RAID and ATA it was on RAID and i tried to run the windows install with ATA selected also

if any 1 has any ideas about what is going on it would be greatly appreciated. thx

Portege A200 Windows XP;

Before windows is fully loaded a blue screen appears and the machine shuts down. Prior to this the machine was intermittenlty switching off for no apparent reason. The last thing I did before this happened was to update to IE 7. Ran scandisk but did not fix anything.

Can start in safemode but cannot uninstall IE7 in safemode. Selected option to load windows from last config that worked option, but windows crashes before finishing loading. Used system restore to take it back to January 08 but still same problem.

Any advice would be appreciated.

A:After loading Windows - BSOD crashes on Portege A200

In such cases I really recommend you to make clean OS installation. As you can see nothing helps. I really do not know what you can try but I really do not believe you will be able to do anything.

Back up all your important data and make clean OS installation. I know it is pretty radical solution but, believe me, the best one.

Hello wolf, and welcome to Sevenforums!

Perhaps your hardware isn't working. I'd start with the memory. Remove all but 2 GB of RAM from the computer and see if it boots. If it doesn't, replace the RAM with the RAM you have removed. If it boots, check each RAM using MEMtest: RAM - Test with Memtest86+ - created by Jonathan_King

Remove the bad RAM.

Let me know how this goes.

If you can't download anything at the moment, use the built in windows Memory diagnostics: Memory Diagnostics Tool - created by Brink

Hey

Ok, well it starts off with me managing to either corrupt windows or the hard drive on my original hard drive, and when ever I try to boot off there, I get to the windows loading screen (with logo and little green sliding bar) and then it restarts and keeps doing that. Tried booting in safe mode, and from disc but I cannot do anything with it in terms of booting.

So what I decided to do was get a second hard drive and install XP onto there, and then plug my second hard drive in and see if I can transfer files off there to the new one.

I got XP installed fine on it, but when it came to booting with both hard drives plugged in I came to problems. I set which hard drive is the priority one in the bios as there is no pins on the back of this new hard drive, and it got to the windows loading screen with the new installation (i know this because the loading screens are different for both hard drives). After the loading screen my monitors go black and nothing happens.

Windows loads fine when it is just the new hard drive plugged in, even if the old hard drive is plugged in and set to disabled it goes to the black screen.

If anyone is able to give some advice on what to do, or what could be wrong, I would be really grateful.

Thanks

Matt

Hey guys I just fixed a CRAZY virus (I think its a virus) I had that changed my userinit.exe files and I fixed it by replacing these files using my friends userinit.exe files . Now I'm getting a blue screen with an error that reads:

STOP: 0x0000007E (0x0000005, 0xF7547756, 0xF78A242c, 0xF78A2128)

Also it says something about BIOS to either upgrade it or disable conflicting components.

About the "Virus/Trojan or something":

Just so you know:

1) I downloaded this file <http://isohunt.com/torrent_details/71813493/ip?tab=summary> (if anyone is brave enough to download it and see if their antivirus detects it because I don't have an antivirus so I still don't know the name for this... I guess its a virus or trojan) when I double clicked the file "iphider37se.exe 4.2 MB" it automatically installed a "Windowspcdefender" and started scanning. It looked like a really fake virus scanner so when I click X to close it I got a blue screen and was forced to restart my pc.

2) Then the problem was that windows would load to the Welcome screen and I clicked on my user account to log in (no password required)

3) Then my desktop would appear AS IF it was ready to load up but then it would automatically go back to the Welcome screen.

4) This happened even in Safe Mode so I had to put my drive as a slave drive on ANOTHER PC.

5) It took me HOURS to somehow figure out the userinit.exe files may have gotten corrupt or rewritten by this... Read more

Hey, need some help yet again!

Yesterday, I downloaded Mission Against Terror (New MMOFPS), and I downloaded it. Upon updating with the patcher, my laptop went haywire. It started opening up random IE windows, slow speed, etc etc.

I did a whole memory scan, and a malware/adware/spyware scan. There were several viruses and whatnot, but what is important are the files: SVC2.exe and 2008.exe, you'll find it why later on. The anti-virus said that it had fixed/deleted everything.

So, I restarted my laptop, hoping that I'd get it up and running in safe mode for any further scans. Unfortunately, when I restarted it, after the windows 7 loading screen (which is right before login screen), a black screen appeared. With nothing at all. Not even a cursor. BLACK. JUST BLACK with NO keyboard access/mouse access. But, that's expected since it's BEFORE the login screen. It's the same with normal boot, boot that does that "last best used option" or whatever, safe mode, with networking, etc etc. All the same. Black screen.

Good thing I had WIN XP on my other hard drive. So, I booted up into WIN XP (where I'm posting this from), and did a FULL (NOT QUICK) system scan, to find the SAME Viruses YET AGAIN: SVC2.exe and 2008.exe, along with some other minor tracking cookies and what-not. Win XP (on second drive) is also having a few problems, like IE shutting down every second (using firefox now). Think this is a whole system prob. But, why? Didn't the antivirus-es fix it? I...

So here's the deal, starting from the beginning!
Note: I've been away for about a year, and I just got back today.

I'm pretty psyched about Starcraft 2, so I tried to install it a couple hours ago. The software failed to connect to the Internet to validate the installation. At the suggestion of a member of another forum, I ran ComboFix.exe. It totally fixed the problem.

I could have stopped there, but I was a little greedy. I then installed 87 Windows Updates on my computer, up to but not including XP Service Pack 3. I did this because SC II more or less asked me to.

I restarted upon completion and the problem began. After the Windows loading screen, the screen becomes black. Shortly afterward, there is no more input to the monitor (it turns off). I hear a beep every 40 seconds from my computer, but nothing else. This continues until I restart.

Safe Mode and Last Known Configuration do not work. I have the Recovery Console installed, but I don't know what to do with that. Unfortunately I disabled System Restore quite a while ago to save space.

I am fairly certain the culprit is these Windows updates. What I would ideally like to do is, well, uninstall them. I don't know how to navigate the text workspace of the Recovery Console, though... and I don't even know if it can be done.

I'd really appreciate any help at all. It's so unfortunate that my computer worked great after a year of sitting idle, and then I went and messed it up in an hour!

Use an XP Installation Disk to run chkdsk, and hope your problem is HD errors.

If Safe Mode, Last known good configuration and System Restore are all not working, the only thing left is a Repair Installation.

Hello,
Recently my pc just showed a black screen when waking up from sleep, and i had to restart the pc to get to the login screen. Today the same thing happened, but now i cant get to the login screen even when rebooted.

I have rebooted approximately 20 times, booted in both normal safe mode and safe mode with networking, yet still get black screen. I have tried booting from EFI Device (standard), Hard Disk and CD&DVD with no results. I have also tried going back to an older version of the pc (recovery), but it failed and couldn't load the recovery save.

The pc is old, from 2011/12 i would guess, runs with 8 GB DDR3 RAM, i5 2320 Quadcore CPU, 2 TB HDD and some Acer motherboard (Acer Predator G3610 i believe, not sure). The original GPU was a Radeon, but after about 2 years i switched to a Nvidia GTX 970 (MSI), and had no problems whatsoever. Could it potentially be a faulty GPU? I would find it hard to believe the GPU would break overnight, considering i played 6+ hours of CS:GO yesterday with no problems.. and well.. how does a GPU break overnight when not turned on?

Anyways, any help here is very much appreciated!

Hello,

I'm new to the forums, but I find myself coming to this site a lot to fix my windows computer, so heck why not join?!

Problem
Recently, my computer starts up windows and after the loading screen it just sits at a black screen forever with a cursor and it doesn't even make it to the log in screen. I have tried safe mode with the same results.

What I've Done So FarTried to Repair Startup with Windows DVD
Tried to use sfc /scannow at boot (Says pending changes and needs to restart)
Tried logging into my Ubuntu partition and virus scanning (None found)
Tried copying Reg Files from Regback into config while I was in Linux
Tried to Repair Install (But I can't log into Windows )
Tried to bootrec /fixmbr /fixbot /RebuildBcd (Which destroyed my dual boot linux grub, but I was desperate. And still nothing) Interestingly though, after I do /RebuildBcd command it says something like "Found Windows Installations: 0"
Tried to System Restore (Gave me an Error, wouldn't you know)

At this point I'm not to confident that this can be fixed. If anyone has any ideas I'm willing to try. Or if you have any snazzy suggestions on how I could fix it using another computer, I have a different Windows Pro x64 computer that I can put the HD in if there's someway I can save my data/fix it/repair install from there. I just don't know how.

Hi All,

I had my computer tower opened and a small picture frame fell into it causing my PC to lock up. Now when I boot up my PC, it gets to the Windows XP loading screen and it seems to run fine, but suddenly the blue screen of death appears before it hits the windows log on screen and it reboots.

I have no time to see what error pops up, it's only on the blue screen for about half a second.

I have tried removing and putting my ram in the other spots. I've also made sure everything is secure.

Something must've shorted when the frame fell into my PC (stupid me, I know), but I am wondering if something else like this has happened with a solution other than buying a new PC?

Thanks!

While browsing screen went black and audio froze (loud high frequency repeating noise). Restarted system and windows suggest to perform startup repair before loading. Performed it but it says it cannot fix all errors. Windows will show the loading screen but it never logs on, screen turns black and keyboard lights are not responsive (num. etc).
Created a system repair disk on another computer, ran repair from there, but it did not solve the problem.
I can enter windows in safe mode, writing this from there.

No new hardware added or software installed before this happened.

My uninformed assumption is that the 5-year old SSD is failing.

I had a RAID5 set up with 3 1TB drives and Windows 7 installed. Recently, the raid has become degraded a few days after being built. This is the second time this has happened within a span of a few weeks. I also have another 1 TB drive and a 150GB Raptor. The 1TB drive didn't always show up in windows, but would show up in BIOS. When I would have problems with RAID, I would boot to the raptor because it had Windows 7 installed on it as well. I had the Intel RAID Management tool installed on the raptor and would repair the RAID. Yesterday, the RAID was unable to be repaired. Upon reboot, I could not boot to the Raptor because there wasn't a BootMGR or something like that. This was displayed in the BIOS before the windows loading screen. It asked for me to input the System Disk and hit enter. After doing this it tried to repair and restarted. Same error. I decided to put the raptor into an alternate computer, wipe it and install windows 7 again. It should be noted that I could not boot to the windows disk to install Windows 7 on the raptor from the main computer. So today I finished with all the updates to Windows 7 and moved the raptor back over to the original computer. I tried to boot up, and it starts the windows loading screen, then immediately blue screens. The screen is only there for a few milliseconds,... Read more
