Dell XPS M1530 Startup Repair Loop, Offline SFC does NOT function

Q: Dell XPS M1530 Startup Repair Loop, Offline SFC does NOT function

Dear Everyone,

Sorry to trouble all of you, but I've pretty much exhausted my google-fu. Thus, I figured that I should stop trying to throw things against the wall, and rather just see if there's someone wiser here who can help me out. Now, before you tell me, I am totally aware that I could easily cut my losses just by doing a re-install, which would make the Windows.Old folder and such, most of which can be easily put back via a command prompt script. However, being that this computer has software whose installation disks I do not have, I do NOT want to do a re-install, since it'll break program association and possibly other things which I cannot correct by re-installing them.

As far as I know, the machine in question is a Dell XPS M1530, with Intel Core 2 Duo T7250, Nvidia 8400M GS, 2GB RAM, and WD Scorpio Blue 250GB Hard Drive. It is running Windows 7 Ultimate, upgraded from Vista Home Premium, with all updates, software patches, and security fixes current according to Windows Update. As far as virus and malware goes, it has ESET NOD32 v4.7, Malware Bytes, and Spybot-S&D installed, with each being fully updated and scans immediately prior to the crash stating that the machine was clean. In addition, after the crash, I attempted to scan it with Avira, Dr. Webb, and Hiren's Boot CD, all of which stated that the machine is free of infection/threat.

Below, I'll attempt to take you guys and gals through everything, from the initial symptoms to the bag of tricks that I've employed, with each of its effect(s):
Initial Outbreak & Symptoms: The Computer was fine, with everything being in tip top shape. However, being that Mozilla Firefox 10.2 had been stuck on loading a page when I attempted to shut it down, I used the "hold power button for 4 seconds" method to force it to quit (Yes, I know I shouldn't have done it.). Afterward, the system booted up and proceeded to go through the Dell Logo BIOS, followed by a brief version of the Windows 7 Waving Flag Splash screen. But, it abruptly changes into the Windows RE "Loading Windows Files" white bar, which leads to the Startup Repair. Initially, Startup Repairs states that the system had some corrupt files, which it will not be able to repair. The System then rebooted itself. At this point, I cannot launch Safe Mode (Any), pressing F8 does not lead to anything, and booting never completes.
Treatment 1: Using Windows RE, I launched Chkdsk C:/R /X, which found and weeded out quite a few entries of corruption on the first run, which was corrected then and never showed up in any of the repeated scans of Chkdsk. Currently, when Chkdsk is run, it reports that it found no problems.
Treatment 2: Trying to figure out if I messed up any hardware, I attempted to run Dell's built-in Diagnostic system, which initially told me that the Hard Drive was not detected with an error of 2000-0141 or 2000-0146 (they alternated), which is stated by Dell to be fixable by the removal and reinsertion of the Hard Drive, which was true. However, I've never been able to get through a scan without the 2000-014X error log, since it appears to be stuck in the log "from a previous scan", even though it has been corrected. As far as I can tell, the physical hard drive is fine, if its connection might have been a bit loose when the first scan was run.
Treatment 3: Using Windows RE and CMD, I used the Startup Infinite Loop Registry trick, even though the file sizes of everything in my regback was drastically different than in the guide. However, being that I read others had mentioned they've got varying sizes (All nonzero) also, I thought I might be okay. Indeed, I thought things got a bit better afterward, since it brought back the ability to launch the Advance Boot Options via F8. Although, testing revealed that booting to Safe Mode (Any), Last Known Good Configuration, and Start Normally all result in the Startup Repair situation.
Treatment 4: Just as a Hail Mary, I tried Bootrec /FixMBR and /FixBoot, both of which did NOT resolve the situation. However, it did seem to make the boot process more smooth and lasted somewhat longer before the Startup Repair takes over.
Treatment 5: Now, this is the first and last thing I tried, so trust me when I say that this machine does NOT like SFC right now. Initially, when run via Hard Drive, SFC /Scannow yielded a message about Windows Protection Resource not able to perform. However, if run by Installation CD, SFC /Scannow says that it is waiting for a repair to complete, which requires a restart... even after it was restarted. Now, regardless of running it via CD or Hard Drive, if I use "SFC /Offbootdir=C:\ /Offwindir=C:\Windows", I get a little frozen stuttering cursor that blinks for a bit, then a message stating that "SFC Found Corrupt Files, but it was unable to repair them."
Hypothesis: After throwing a whole bunch of tricks at it, now Startup Repair makes through the scan and states that it cannot figure out what is wrong. Yet, every time I turn on the computer, this problem pops up. Based on my thoughts, I'm of the mind that if SFC could run, it could probably easily fix whatever corruption there exists. Unfortunately for me, I'm like a guy with a loose screw whose screwdriver has broken off its handle. Thus, I'm of the mind that if one of you guys and gals and point me to salvation, I'd be really grateful. Why? Well, my reasons are:If you wish, you can find the extended CBS Log here. The computer broke on 02/22/2012, which means that the SFC haven't been logging, or perhaps doing, anything for the past few days, even as I've been repeatedly trying to run it, which leads me to think that my screwdriver's kaput.
Going by the CBS Log, you can see that between 02/12/2012 and 02/20/2012, the SFC was running successfully, along with that nasty little percentage bar. However, when I attempt SFC of any kind now, there is no percentage bar, just a crazy little blinking cursor, followed by the "corrupt and unrepairable" message.

Current State: When Startup Repair is run, whether repeatedly or just once, it keeps on telling me that it cannot repair the problem. However, when you check out the details, it tells you that it cannot figure out what the problems are, as the machine passes all of its tests. Yet, it still is stuck in the loop. Occasionally, it'll say that the flaw resides with rdyboost.sys file being corrupt, but if I do chkdsk and recheck, it states that it can't find anything wrong.
Caveat: Sorry about this, everyone. But, please keep in mind that:While I would LOVE to do a repair install, I cannot do it because I cannot log into Windows, and Windows 7 only allow repair install from inside the OS! (What idiots designed this?!)
I have checked everything from CPU to RAM to the display cables, everything is now well connected. So, I do not think that it is a loose connection.
Yes, I know that you'd probably advise me to just re-install, which I could easily do so. But, as I mentioned, I know that it'll break all kinds of software and stuff, leaving me a big mess and unable to fix them due to lack of installation media. I really don't want to do it, unless there's literally no other way, which I find surprising.

Please, everyone. Help me out here. How the hell do I help the program that's supposed to be helping me?! How does one manually switch in a good rdyboost.sys file? Help?

Hello,

I've been unable to access my custom build computer since around 5:00 yesterday. I chose to restart my computer at around that time just because it was slowing up a little and I usually do that to help, I had not installed any updates or new programs since 2 days ago when there had been a few windows updates.

Upon returning to my computer I noticed that it had been unable to startup and had gone straight into system repair with it being 'unable to repair this computer automatically.' I rebooted several times and noticed that it was not a visible BSOD but as soon as the 'starting windows' icon began to appear it went straight into startup repair. I tried to boot into safe mode, tried to load previous good configuration and all of the other advanced recovery options (including system restore/image and many command prompts).

This is what it shows after being unable to repair automatically:

Problem signature name:Startup repair offline
Problem signature 1: 6.1.7600.16385

Hi,

I am unable to start up my laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium). TOSHIBA Satellite C660-1J6
It is stuck in a loop of 'attempting to repair this computer', which is unsuccessful and restarts.
There are no restore points to use.
I have received the BSOD which disappears quickly during startup.
I am able to start up in Safe Mode - however when I get to the login screen, the mouse and keyboard do not work.

I would highly appreciate any help or advice with this.
I am happy to reinstall windows as I have everything backed up. However I am unsure how to do so as I do not have a CD.

Kind regards

A:Startup Repair- windows cannot repair; Stuck in restart loop

Firstly, a Windows 7 install disc is a dvd, not a cd.

You would have to find a working PC to download a Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 Iso File, either 32 or 64 bit, let`s assume you need 64 Bit.

After you have downloaded the iso file you have to burn it to a dvd at no faster then x4 speed. So the PC has to have a dvd burner and you`s need a blank dvd.

Everything you need is in the following links.

https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/techno...-download-tool

Free ISO Burner

Clean Install Windows 7

You can also use a usb stick to put the iso file on using Rufus. The usb stick must be at least 4 GB in size.

https://rufus.akeo.ie/

You must also have a readable key on your COA to activate windows after you install it.

You will also have to install at least your network/ethernet drivers to get online. Then get your other drivers, and run Windows Update, which will take a long time, sometimes 24 hours.

Hi lordkbob and Welcome to TSF,

When you're saying your computer crashed, did it result in a bluescreen?
The offline system repair rarely works in my experience, it's either fix the issue with Safemode or the installation DVD repair option.

If you can boot into safemode (Press F8 during startup)
1.
Boot up with Safemode without networking.
Go to Start > Search > type "cmd".
Rightclick cmd.exe > Choose "Run as administrator".
Type in the following command and hit ENTER:
sfc /scannow
Repair any faults that comes up.

2.
Try restoring to a previously known working restore point.
Go to Start > Search > type "rstrui" > Hit ENTER.

If you can't boot into Safemode
Run the System Repair from the Windows installation DVD.
If problem still persists, make a proper backup of important files and do a clean install of Windows.

For some reason when I turned it on this morning it went into startup repair and said the Event Name: StartupRepairOffline.

I have tried using system restore to 3 different points (2 of them before Bioshock 2 was installed and 1 being system restore point from yesterday). After I do any of them the computer restarts then does exactly the same thing again saying that I have don't system restore at all (as the 3 restore options are still available)

Can someone please help me with this as I have lots of documents on my PC I need to access.

Hi Pottsy, welcome to the Seven Forums.

Once again a good example why you should not use any registry cleaners. As you can read in several threads here and other tech sites, the general consensus seems to be that in knowing hands Piriform's CCleaner can be trusted but usually there's no reason to clean your registry. All other so called "cleaners" generally cause more issues than they resolve.

Speaking about myself as an example, I have not used (not a single time) any registry cleaners since I migrated from XP to Vista end of 2006 when it was released to manufacturers. Not with Vista, not with Seven and now not with Eight. Also I never "clean" the registry manually; the only registry editing I have done in the past over 7 years since XP days is an occasional value change in registry, for instance enabling something changing its value from 0 to 1. For this I use the built-in registry editor.

I have had exactly 0 registry issues during this time.

Can you start System Restore from the repair without Windows asking drivers? If so, select a restore point before you "cleaned" the registry. Tutorial: System Restore

Any ideas what I must do to repair the problem?
 

A:Startup Repair Offline problem

Well...if you formatted the hard drive...then a startup repair would be impossible, since there would be no files on the drive.
 
Am I missing something?

Hi, this is my first post, and I am not even sure if anyone on this forum can help me. I am having a major problem with my computer. I have a Lenovo laptop, an ideapad. I am running on windows 7. A few days ago I started up my computer, and it showed the windows sign as it usually does when starting up. But it stayed on that screen for ages, so I clicked enter to see if it was responding, and it wasn't, it just stayed there for a while. Then suddenly I was sent to the blue screen, for a few seconds, and then it told me my startup wasn't working. It asked me to log in as an administrator so I did. It then took me to the system recovery page. I tried doing the system repair, and all the other options. I have saved my computer many times, but when I tried to restore to a previous save point it said I didn't have any. I think the part of the disk that had the save files was corrupted. Anyways, after having a disk check done for almost 30 strait hours at still 7 percent, :/, I went to problem details. This came up.

Hey,
 
I know other people have posted this same issue before but I figured it was best to inquire about my specific problem. My installation of Windows 7 won't boot after upgrading AVG Free and so I tried Startup Repair but that keeps on failing. I tried a System Restore but that didn't work either (the restore was successful but upon boot I still couldn't get into Windows).
 
So I pulled up Farbar and got the following log. I have no idea how to get the correct fixtlist.txt I need, I was wondering if someone here would know how to help. Thanks a lot, I really appreciate it.

Hi eveyone, my PC was running smoothly on a day and later on that day(few hours later), it did not boot into windows. Second, The screen showed my startup repair. While it was searching for the problems, Last, it said that it "Startup Repair cannot repair the computer automatically. And ive looked at the problem details:

I then tried system image recovery, which did not solve the problem, As a last resort I tried system restore, which also did not solve the problem.

My guess would be either the Hard drive is corrupt, or Memory failure.

Unable to start my computer it just gets stuck at the loading screen. I believe it has something to do with the windows latest update because it worked just fine up until it installed itself.

My wife's PC crashed today and got into a startup repair loop. I'm hoping that I can do a repair install, but I can't figure out how to do so. Here's the details:

Her system is just a few months old. Here are the specs:
ASUS P8Z77-Mpro motherboard
Intel i5-3570K (not overclocked) - intel cooler
8GB RAM (can't remember what kind - maybe G.Skil)
Galaxy GeForce GTX 550 Ti video card
Corsair TX-850 PSU
Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit from a clean install on a Corsair SSD (including Program Files/Program Files (x86)
Users directory on Samsung SATA drive with other stuff that isn't installed in Program Files directories.

The problem:
Today she wanted to play Skyrim, so she ran the Skyrim Nexus Mod Manager.
It had an update. She downloaded and installed the update, the tried to run the game.
When the game launched it started Steam and tried to download updates (there is a new update to Skyrim that came out a couple of days ago), and she walked away.
When she came back it was on Startup Repair screen saying it could not repair the problem. The Error text is:

Dear all,

A little over a week ago, my system BSOD'd (too quickly for me to see the first time) and eventually after a number of restarts rebooted normally and ran fine for the next day or so. The following day, I was unable to get the machine to post, with fans spinning but not a lot else. Resetting the BIOS seemed to work, but I was then stuck at the startup repair screen, looping without success. I had a spare HDD so installed another copy of 7 Pro and managed to book ok, but after several more BSODs it looked like a hardware fault. I changed the motherboard today for a similar (same chipset) model and reconnected the original HDD, but once again I am stuck at startup repair with the following error:

I have a Dell Inspiron and a while ago I shut down my PC and the next morning I was faced with options to repair my computer. It hung on the screen for ages before it actually came up with startup repair and supposedly fixed the problem. A few days later, everything got very slow and started to freeze a lot and before long, booting the computer got very slow as well as it hung for about ten minutes on a black screen after the 'welcome' screen before finally starting up. I decided to reinstall the operating system (I did NOT reformat the C drive), so I borrowed my Grandma's external hard drive and copied my files. After reinstalling using a Dell Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium Re-Installation DVD, I copied and deleted the files off the external hard drive onto my PC (I didn't know it would create a Windows.old folder) and started installing programs. Then I left it overnight to install quite a big program. This morning, somehow it had turned off. I turned it on and it gave me the safe mode options and a 'start windows normally' option. I chose the latter and after typing my password it hung on the welcome screen again. I left it for ages and it just went back to the user login screen again. I pressed the red button in the corner to shut it down but it just hung once again on an empty screen so I did a hard shutdown (held down the power button). I turned it on again...startup repair. It gave me the option for system restore, which I did (then realising when it finished that I had... Read more

I'm not good at computers so I'll describe what I did and experienced as far as possible:
There have been some problems with my computer that prevented my computer from shutting down or restarting. I was using Windows 7 English version at that time.
To try to tackle the problem, I installed Windows 7 Enterprise Chinese version (64 bit) that I got from my company. I tried a few times but it stated that windows can't be installed in MBR HDD so I formatted the HDD and converted it into GPT. I finally installed the windows successfully, had it verified and installed the Windows Updates. I then restarted Windows, hoping that the updates will take effect.
However, Windows couldn't start up since then because of "Bad Driver". I tried startup repair but the problem couldn't be fixed. The Problem Signature Screen, from signature 01 to 07 were "6.1.7600.16385, 6.1.7600.16385, unknown, 21199522, AutoFailover, 6, BadDriver" respectively.
What should I do to fix the problem? Are there any fixlogs for my situation?
Thank you in advance for your help and professional advice!

A:Windows 7 Startup Repair Offline Bad Driver

Some more info on the situation:
Windows restarted and went to the "windows boot manager" page with two options-"activate repair" & "start up windows" if i do not insert the installation disc.
Also, for problem signature 06, it is sometimes 6, 7, 8 or 10. Dunno why...

Hello, my computer has been working flawlessly for the past year and has had no problems at all working currently with windows 7. Until two days ago when i was just browsing the internet and my computer froze and the whole screen tinted pink. I tried moving the mouse, typing in letters, but it was frozen. I was forced to power button to get the computer to shut off because i was unable to do anything. Upon restarting my computer it asked me if i wanted to run windows normally or use safe mode, so i run it normally and then on the load screen where you see the windows 7 logo it freezes every time. The computer stays frozen for about 10 minutes and then it restarts itself and comes up with the Startup Repair program only to say that windows cannot repair this computer automatically.

During the clean install, I had to update BIOS due to the windows7 installation unable to read driver despite numeruous attempts to solve this. I have UEFI BIOS and have follow this forum UEFI clean install guideline.

I still have the black screen problem after the clean install but prevx fix seems to fix this so far. However, my laptop start restarting into Startup Repair again and cant fix the problem.

I am running windows 7 on my desktop and I can't get it to start.
When I try startup repair on the "windows error recovery" screen it will go to a windows loading files screen, load the bar, and back to the windows error recovery screen.

If I try to choose starting normally it will go to the starting windows screen, then to a hp menu screen where you see all the f_ otions, then a raid options window, them again back to the windows error recovery screen.

I've tried a restore and it didn't fix the problem. Also, all the diagnostic tests come up as everything is working.

The only thing is, after trying to run the repair a few times, I got this:

I don't know what any of that means.

I may have started this problem by attaching a memory stick while my notebook was booting. The computer seemed to freeze. I turned it off. When I rebooted, startup repair offline began working. I did not allow it to go back to a previous version because I did not know how far back that meant. It was not able to do anything (after a long time). It got to a screen which proposed sending the information to microsoft or not. I Xed out of that screen because I could see one below that said to just try unplugging what I had plugged in a reboot. I did copy down the error message before rebooting

Now when I boot the computer, the light goes on briefly, nothing happens on the screen and then it shuts off.

I would appreciate any suggestions!!

Hi guys, new to the forums and in need of some help.
 
I was called in to look at my parents PC despite being no expert myself. Windows was unable to boot and was giving a message along the lines of it was unable to access the device?!. The given options were to try booting Windows 7 again (which brought me back to the same point) or to go to System Restore. Having already been unable to use a system repair disk after receiving the message 'startuprepairoffline', I tried System Restore.
 
Mistakenly I thought it would give me the option to set the system back to a previous date but it was actually going to reinstall the OS. I only realised this after I had started the restore so I turned the system off by holding the power button as I didn't want my files to be lost. I thought my next best bet would be to connect the PC hard drive to my laptop, copying across the files and resuming the System Restore for a fresh install. 
 
When I took out the hard drive and connected it to my laptop I couldn't find any of the files. In fact, 142GB of the 143GB drive appeared to be free! So I'm wondering what has happened to the data as all folders on the drive are empty. Could the system restore process have deleted the files (or file table) in the short time it was running? And is there a way to recover them?
 
Thanks in advance (and apologies for the long post)

Have pity on this nearly 60 year old, definitely non-technical person. I have no clue how to fix this.
Five years ago, I bought a Gateway all-in-one PC, preloaded with the Windows 7 operating system. When I was offered the chance to upgrade to Windows 10, I did so. I haven't had any problems with my PC until last week.
One morning last week, I went to turn on my computer and the screen was black and told me to use the boot disks. I followed the screen prompts and used the various system, recovery and language discs that came with my PC. Everything appeared to be following
the expected protocol, but the system was hung up for 14 hours at 99% recovery. I tried again (of course) with the same results. Both times, I chose the option that created a folder where all of my documents, pictures, etc., were stored in a backup folder
before the recovery commenced.
I figured I had nothing to lose so I forged onwards. Now I couldn't tell you how I did this, but somehow I think I tried to recover my computer in safe mode and received the following error message:

Welcome to Windows Seven Forums.

Are you able to boot into Safe Mode? Have you installed any new drivers recently or installed any new software.

If you can get into Safe Mode you could try running the system file checker.

Open a command prompt with elevated privileges and type sfc /scannow then press Enter to run the command.

Are you able to remember what you were doing prior to this problem showing up?

Check this Microsoft article for further help: After you install a device or update a driver for a device, Windows Vista or Windows 7 may not start

Greetings,About two weeks I was trying to remove an antivirus that the removal file was somehow no longer available...  In order to get a new antivirus I needed to removed the old one;

So the OS is not loading!  I thought then I can do an in-place upgrade of the same OS, but I am getting an error that "The computer started using the Windows installation disc. Remove the installation disc and restart your computer so that Windows

Hi, sorry if i?m in the wrong area of the forum.



I tried to switch my laptop on yesterday and my computer froze on the Windows welcome screen. I waited for ages but it wouldn?t load so I switched it off by holding down the power button and tried to switch back on again. This time, it went to a Startup Repair screen. Waited for ages again and when the startup repair had finally finished it said it couldn?t be repaired. I have tried restarting loads of times since then and same thing happens. I got a message with all the error codes so I kept the details of this so I could determine the problem but I can?t find this exact error code/problem signature combination anywhere else.

Heres what it said:

Startuprepairoffline

Hello everyone,
 
I could really use some assistance with a PC problem I'm having (Win 7, 64 bit pro if it matters). I think it is a malware issue after several hours of trying to diagnosis and solve the problem. Anyone's assistance would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you in advance for your time and consideration. Now onto some specifics and then the problem, details and things I've tried to remedy the issue.
 
I can't get into windows at all, no safe mode (of any kind) only command prompts pretty much.

==========================================================================Some points for you to keep in mind:
Backup any files that cannot be replaced. Removing malware can be unpredictable and this step can save a lot of heartaches if things don't go as planned. You can put them on a CD/DVD, external drive or a pen drive, anywhere except on the computer.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability.
Please do not run any tools or take any steps other than those I will provide for you while we work on your computer together. I need to be certain about the state of your computer in order to provide appropriate and effective steps for you to take.

Alright, I'll save you any boring or long-winded overly verbose introductions, although I realize by saying that I may have already exceeded the allotted time for this introduction. Nonetheless, I'm getting a boot error wherein after the windows splash screen, the system hangs, screen goes black and resets. Startup repair doesn't work and I get the bad driver error as described in this thread:

Now, I'm convinced that this has been caused by attempting to update the drivers for my Nvidia GTX 660 because the computer crashed as I was installing the driver. Here's the thing though: It's crashed twice before while attempting to install the same driver, but I was able to use startup repair to restore functionality those other times. This time however, I figured I would attempt a clean install for the driver because it hadn't worked before (checked the "clean install" box when installing Nvidia GTX 660 Driver 344.11  WHQL). This, unfortunately, turned out to be the catalyst control center for my current predicament. It may also be related to Avast as I just recently installed their new internet security suite and I've read that it could cause conflicts with Nvidia. Also, it could have been that I was not only downloading something at the time, I was also watching a video as it was installing the driver, which I imagine is like... Read more

I'm a computer tech guy and one of my users brought me a desktop that didn't boot. So, I started the PC, it started to go into Windows, the logo stops, the BSOD flashes on the screen for a tenth of a second, then it restarts again.
So then, I let it do the startup repair and it took about 20 minutes, then shows me the Problem Signature screen (the pertintent ones are 05, 06 and 07 that say AutoFailover, 8 and BadDriver).
After that, I Googled "Repair Offline Bad Driver" and found this site (thank goodness!) I remembered the name of it because I've used ComboFix before on another computer (which fixed it), and I read about this program I never heard of before called Farbar Recovery Scan Tool.
Next, I take out my trusty thumbdrive (which is bootable), made a Win7 recovery drive and booted the PC with it and ran that program. It made this log file (which I know you need) that I can somewhat understand.
Now, I need your help to make a proper fixlog that I can use to get the system booting again (once that happens, I can take it from there so as not to disturb you any further). I'll keep you updated on what has transpired, though. Thank you for any assistance you give me. Here is the attached log:
