New X1 --- error msg at startup

Q: New X1 --- error msg at startup

My new Thinkpad X1 has a problem: after booting into Windows 10 Pro, an error message appears on the home screen. The message is: "There was a problem starting C:\Program Files(x86)ThinkPad\Utilities\PWMTR64V.dll The specified module could not be found." Otherwise, everything else seems to work fine. I originally set up Windows 10 Pro with a Microsoft account, then updated all the Windows and Lenovo files.Then I realized I could do the setup without a Microsoft account which I didn't want anyway. So I then did a Windows system reset and did a clean setup this time with a personal account. Then I again updated the Windows and Lenovo files. Then the next time I restarted the computer, I got the error message. I did a file search for the missing PWMTR64V.dll, and I found it in another folder: c:\Program Data\Lenovo\ImController\Plugins\ThinkpowerPackage\x86\PWMTR64V.dll. Just to see if I could get rid of the error message, I copied the PWMTR64V.dll file, then created C:\Program Files(x86)ThinkPad\Utilities\folder and pasted the dll there. Then, at system startup, the error msg did not appear. The problem seems to be fixed, but it is no real fix --- and now I wonder if there might be other files that might have been displaced as well, and that might cause trouble in the future. So my question is --- why might this be happening? What Lenovo program is looking for this dll where it doesn't exist? Is there a Windows reset that goes deeper than the system reset? Any ideas? I just got this computer and haven't loaded anything yet, so I don't mind wiping everything out right now. I purchased the 3-year onsite warranty upgrade, but Lenovo said it didn't cover software issues. I may have to return this computer because of the uncertainty about this problem. Any help or clues appreciated.

Preferred Solution: New X1 --- error msg at startup

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.)

so everything was fine when my laptop started to become very slow and i used to get the BSOD very often so i decided to recover the system to the initial state . i did that and everything was fine , then i updated the windows 7 service pack 1 and finished the installation and rebooted my computer , the start-up at least took half an hour at that time and the service pack 1 installation showed "not successful " i tried to again to update the service pack1 which showed 73.6mb - 892.6mb so i updated it again and again the same thing happened.

then i researched and found out that there is some problem with the windows service pack 1 and some daemon tools driver sptd.sys is also involved or something so i uninstalled daemon tools as well as windows 7 service pack 1 from control panel .

now the system is back to its normal speed once it starts up fully , and unless i switch it off there is no problem , but when i restart the system it takes at least half an hour to start up sometimes more than that , sometimes it never starts and i see the BSOD after the welcome screen with error 0x000000f4 and the physical memory dump fails with error 0xc0000010 .

i had also found something about minidump files which i didnt understand anything about , but i still tried to find the folder but i couldnt find the minidump folder in c:/windows/ so i figured maybe i didnt have a minidump folder.

My laptop hasn't been in use for about a few weeks and all of a sudden, I am getting a Windows Error Recovery on Startup. I am given two options: Launch Startup Repair (recommended) and Start Windows Normally. Nothing happens when I try to restart Windows normally -- I only see a black screen. Upon selecting System Recovery, a teal screen pops up with "System Recovery Options" telling me to select a keyboard layout. Then it tells me to select my OS, but it comes up blank, telling me to load drivers for my hard disks. I stopped right there.

I am a little hesitant about using the System Recovery in fear of losing important files. If this is a possibility, I may try to backup my files using an alternate OS, like Ubuntu. Or are my files already long gone? Is this just a restore for important Windows files or a complete restore of Windows back to factory settings?

I have not installed any new software or devices. Running Windows Vista x64.

As the title suggests, my Acer Aspire has been running startup repair for over 20 hours following a BSOD yesterday. I'm not sure if it's worth the wait so maybe you all can shed some light. Yesterday I was stressfully trying to search for something (using Chrome) and the website I was on froze; admittedly I slammed the heels of my hands down on the laptop at that point. The site unfroze after less than 30 seconds, I continued using my laptop without incident, then let it hibernate for about an hour. Started up fine after that, and at that point I was beginning to rip a DVD (one that I owned; I just wanted the files on my computer) using a program that I've used successfully in the past, but the rip failed. So I began using VLC instead, and hadn't actually started ripping any files when my laptop froze. I had been trying to point to a file path for saving but hadn't saved anything. The laptop was completely unresponsive after several minutes, so I hit the power key to restart, which is when I got the BSOD. It flashed too quickly for me to read or remember anything other than the word KERNEL. I've been wracking my brain trying to remember if it said kernel error or kernel memory error or what.

After the BSOD I had the option to start normally or in startup repair; I hit "start windows normally" but it went to repair anyway. It was on the grey screen with the cursor but I thought it had frozen again, so I did another hard restart. No BSOD this time, but again the opti... Read more

Hi guys I was cleaning my laptop turned it on and it just wouldn't work so I turned it off and on again and it was giving me this error code saying my keyboard is not detected in start up. It then says there was a problem and shoots me to startup repair where it's just stuck not doing anything. My mouse and keyboard don't work, but I have a wireless mouse that I can use I can't access safe mode either because my keyboard doesn't work and I don't know if I can get a keyboard hooked up since my computer might not be able to recognize it. Sorry for the badly worded paragraph it's really late and I need to go to sleep. How can I solve this problem. Also startup time is really long ( usually 20 seconds) is now 5 min an doesn't even start up some times and I have no recovery disks or anything like that so im really confused what to do
Edit: A quick update, I started my computer in the morning and was not getting error 01010003, and my computer started perfectly fine however my keyboard still isn't working. I think it might be a driver problem, but I can't access Safe Mode... because my keyboard doesn't work. Is the only way of getting the key board to work getting a new keyboard and using that to diagnose the problem through safe mode or?

A:Error 0101003 Keyboard no detected, stuck on startup/startup repair

In this situation, you have to use another keyboard in order to test. I wish you will be luckier than me .... for me it turned out to be a motherboard failure My computer was working normally .... but no USB/PS2 ports were working.

Hi to all,

Around 5 days ago, some sort of error, cropped up while installation of Kaspersky Anti Virus on my laptop, and after that everytime, I turned the system on, I faced the blue screen error.

Then, i formatted my laptop and reinstalled Windows XP. It was running fine for two days. Suddenly, it started giving error "Logonui.exe application error" at startup displaying something similar to "The instruction at '0x0037149c' referenced memory" something.. It had to buttons - Cancel (for debugging) and Ok.. I pressed cancel/ok/close button. It always cropped up. Until after a series of pressing buttons, my log on screen came. After logging in, all my icons and taskbar gone. So, i opened Windows Task Manager and run "explorer.exe". After everything came up, Some Data Execution Prevention error cropped up. Whenever i tried clicking "Close Message", it always came up again with a separate window for the "Send Error Report to Microsoft" dialog box.

Whenever I connected to internet, the link under my Internet started blinking very fast. I even left it without any internet application open, but it still went on. I saw the properties window of my connection. It went on and on. And in return, everything went slow. Internet surfing and downloading. And one major problem occurred that, whenever I leave my internet open for a short while, it shows the blue screen of error and restarts.

This is a family member's laptop. It is a Dell Inspirion N4110 running Win 7 Home Premium x64
They gave it to me complaining that the shutdown button restarts the computer and will not actually shut it down.
So I checked its preferences, they were fine. I went into the registry and changed the value from 1 to 0. That didn't work. (I changed it back)

I noticed on start up there is an error (it still pops up) that says there was a problem starting c:\users\blah\AppData\Roaming\homsp.dll The specified module could not be found.

The I decided to run a virus scan. Their McAfee had expired so I uninstalled it along with some odd software from a company called SysTweak or something and installed AVG and Malware Bytes. Those full scans came back clean except AVG found something and removed it but it wasn't of any significance to this issue.

I decided to check Windows Update, it wouldn't run. So I tried to restart it in Services and it wasn't there. After some piddling I found a program that supposedly fixed the problem for you. It was called Fix WU. I got it Softpedia. After running it the Windows Update service was back. I was able to install some updates and thought all was well. Then there were more updates. I tried to install them and got an error 80246008.

I'm in no way a expert on such things but I did notice something you found.
SysTweak

Their is no way of knowing all the things a program like that has done. If I had to repair this computer I would start with a repair install.

Give this a good read.

Repair Install

Then I would install MSE for a anti virus and use the built in Windows Firewall.

Little note: If you didn't use McAfee's online removal tool their could of been left overs of McAfee on the computer when you installed AVG and that would be just more problems.
Any anti virus program you remove I recommend using their own removal tool found online.

When the machine would normally be going to the Windows startup screen, instead it shows two lines of print separated by a blank line, white print on a black screen:

Boot error: 0-00


Select partition to boot, 0-3:_

the underline at the end of the second line is a flashing cursor. It remains with this showing until I enter any character, and hit 'RETURN', whereupon the normal boot process resumes. It doesn't matter if I enter one of the four requested digits or something else, any character will do. While this seems simple enough, it worries me - I don't like partition problems, especially since I'v seen Windows 7 repeatedly simultaneously convert normal partitions on up to three drives at once into completely unreadable garbage that no partitioning software can read. While there seems to be no consequence from this behavior, I've become very skittish since witnessing what Win 7 can so completely foul up. I've had this boot error before, and the only thing that removed it was completely repartitioning and reformatting the drive involved. Does any body recognise this?

Today I got my new laptop and decided to dual boot Ubuntu and Windows 7 on it. After several hours of partitioning and researching, I ran into many issues. Eventually I decided to boot Ubuntu from a USB drive, open up Gparted, and delete any and all Linux partitions while expanding the size of the Windows partition back to normal.

Unfortunately, in the process, I must have made an error, because now upon startup I get the "bootmgr is missing" error. I don't have a recovery CD nor does my laptop have a CD drive, so that's out of the question, but I know for a fact my Hard Drive has a recovery partition on it. I want to restore my computer back to normal, keeping my old files if necessary. However, since I just got the computer today, I clearly don't have anything on there I can't afford to lose, so if I must do a factory reset I will.

I?m having a major problem booting up my PC. I keep getting the error message ?mbr error 1 Press any key to boot from floppy? every time I reboot my PC.

The PC is running Windows 7 Professional 64-bit, and everything was working fine until I started to do some cleaning up in preparation for moving my OS from an existing HDD to a new SSD. My PC has a Gigabyte X58A-UD3r motherboard.

I cleaned up my files using Windows System Cleanup and also defragmented the C: drive. All of this seemed to go successfully. On rebooting my PC, and with the SSD installed in an external caddy connected via eSata (because I wanted to clone my existing C: drive across to it to avoid a new installation of Windows 7), I entered BIOS and changed the SATA from IDE to AHCI. (As far as I am aware I didn?t change anything else). Then I booted up the PC and got the error suggesting that there was mbr error 1 etc.

I turned off the PC and went back into BIOS and reset the SATA back to IDE, and rebooted. Same error. I tried rebooting a number of times ? no success.

I then put my Windows 7 installation disc into the DVD drive and rebooted from the DVD (after selecting the DVD drive as the boot option in the BIOS startup). It seemed to boot up right into some version of Windows (note: it did not ask me if I wanted to install or repair windows; it just came up with a standard Windows 7 wallpaper and nothing else).

Then boot into Win7 DVD to Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 which steps are the same for retail.

If this fails wipe the HD first from DVD Command Line with Diskpart Clean Command.

If these steps all fail post back any error message and exact failure point during Clean Install Windows 7

After reinstall plug back in your HD to access and copy over data and access program installers which should be stored in your Downloads file.

Ok, everytime the computer is restarted I get this message...

Could not load or run C:\Users\Cody\AppData\Local\Temp\wvutr.exe specified in the registry. Make sure the file exists on your computer or remove the reference to it in the registry.

How do I solve that problem? Most of the time a lot of new tabs open up when accessing the internet and Norton antivirus or google toolbar isn't stopping it. The computer also occasionally makes all the icons and the taskbar at the bottom disappear. This is a brand new computer Inspiron 531. One more thing, as I m typing this I usually have to go back and fix mistakes because the keyboard is not processing all the key presses. Thanks a bunch to anyone who can help!!

so, let me start from the beggining of my troubles. I booted up my pc this afternoon and low and behold the post screen tells me there is a corrupt file in system/system32/system. so i go to repair and that all goes fine(bar me not having one of the files but i'm sure this wasnt critical. Now when i rebooted from the repair install of XP it goes to ther screen saying choose the config as there appeared to be a problem. so i chose normally and it goes to the perfectly normal windows XP loading screen. All looks good. Then, and this is where i cannot tell exaclty what happens as it happens so fast, but i think i get the blue screen of death and then, within a flash it has gone, not even long enough for me to read it, and the computer restarts. Odly though it works fine in safe mode and all my programs are still intact and i can run fine, bar disabled functionality, in safe mode. If anyone would like my computer spec if this will help diagnose the error, or if anyone can suggest why i may be getting this blue screen then i would be very grateful. Thanks,

A very irritiated and worried computer user.

Recently, I got a wireless adapter card for my Compaq Presario (2005-6) desktop PC. Unfortunately, wireless cards have been known to freeze that model of computer if they use usb port 2.0. My comp started freezing after an hour and eventually much faster, leading to my having to shut it down by holding the power button repeatedly. Eventually it started running very poorly, so I did a destructive system restore and wiped the entire computer. I had to do this twice, because it started freezing again - the third time, it stopped freezing because I switched which port the wireless card was in, but the damage was already done.
Now windows will not start normally at all. It has no restore save points and will not allow me to try to restore either via safe mode or through hitting f10 at start up. If I try to use 'start windows normally/last good configuration', the PC simply freezes on a black screen. I have tried deleting programs in safe mode, defragging, disk cleanup, and chkdsk, none of which worked. I can't burn windows XP or boot.ini because the only other computer we have is incapable of burning CDs, and compaq did not send any system restore discs with the computer - nor did they send the XP set up cds. Is there any way for me to somehow repair XP without the discs? It seems like a huge waste of a computer to try and buy a new one when everyone else I've consulted said it sounds like a windows problem rather than an XP one.

Thanks for any advice.

I used the system recovery cd today because my sound wasn't working. Well, my sound works now but at every time I turn the computer on I get a windows explorer error and can only see the "Start" and time on the bottom bar. It also keeps refreshing itself every couple of minutes after every error report.
it pretty much just says "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."
can't use the windows button on the keyboard or anything, its just an hourglass when I put the pointer over the bottom bar.

any help would be appreciated, thanks

A:error at startup

Okay, first because of a sound problem, you basically reinstalled the entire Operating System ?

Given that you have done so, it's possible the install was bad. You could just reinstall again and see if it works right this time.

Normally, bad installs mean a hardware problem. Maybe a scratched disk, but doubtful. Bad Cd drive or bad Hard Drive. Or worse.

Did you do anything to the computer after the reinstallation. Install any programs ?

Did you go on the internet without updating windows, and setting up an Anti-Virus software ?
