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.)

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.

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

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.

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.

I thought of formatting every drive ... Read more

Here's my story:

My sister's PC had been corrupted in lots of unnecessary programs and apps.
I deleted those craps. Windows Action Center then prompts me to update my windows, and I did.
PC restarted and POOF!!!, I am seem to be forever stuck in the Startup Repair Loop.
So I tried System Restore, but it's giving me the error code stated above (error 0x80070003).
I also tried System Image Recovery, and it's not also of help. Also, checking Hardware Options didn't help.
Lastly, I tried the Command Prompt option and it gives me nothing.

So how can I possible fix this error? ((

thanks in advance for those helpful respondents ))

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.

So I then realized BITS wasn't listed in the Services, either. I found a download (? [SOLUTION] Windows Update and BITS services missing) that contained reg files for Windows 7, installed it, ran the bits file and then res... Read more

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

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? I've been working on and in computer systems since they were called 'numerical calculators', back in the fifties, and I've never seen this until two years ago. Both times I've seen this start, it's begun at startup from a cold boot, after a long series of drive changes, otherwise I know of no other common factor.

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.

Follow instructions.

Go into the BIOS...check the settings described...the system seems to think that there is a problem and is prodding you to check it out.

If it's a fan speed or system temperature problem, it could prove seriously damaging to the system.

I am building a computer, and i have gotten to the point of installing an OS. I installed Xp home edition, and there was no problem. But after it installed, when the computer rebooted, it said there was a disk read error. I tried clearing the CMOS to see if that helped, which it didn't. when that didnt work, i tried using Xpress System Recovery to see if that helped, but after using that, when it starts loading instead of a disk read error i get a message that looks like lB?.$lB?.$ when this comes up, there are no options listed, and the only command i can do is the control+alt+delete reboot. Did i loose my OS when i used system recovery, or something else?

At this point pressing any key restarts and the same thing happens. I checked all the cables and cleaned them out a bit just by blowing, and something different happens now.
This time, when I start up, it gets up until the point where it searches for the boot record from floppy, cdrom, and then, when it should load the OS, this comes up: Novell Netware REady Firmware '91-'96 Ethernet 10/100 adapter, or something like that. Then something called 'rpl-rom-ffc' shows up and it counts from 1 to about 150 before it asks for a boot disk. I tried the boot disk at this time, but it wouldn't work. Please help!!!!!
Is my Hard drive fried? Or is it a mother board error?

p4vmm2 mother board by soyo
P4 2 GHz
1 gig ddr ram
ati radeon 9000pro 128mb
seagate 80 gig HD

I was messing around with the ip address of my computer because the internet didnt work. then i deleted and installed fresh winsock entries.

i restarted the computer and i got a error.
and the technical information is:

*** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFFFE8, 0x00000001, 0x804d9044, 0x00000000)

here is what i found on a google search:
by reading it, i find that that error comes up when a new hardware or software was installed that was bad. i think thats what happened when i did the winsock entries.i can boot up in safe mode, i found the newest winsock entries and installed them and that didnt work
Please Help

When I start my computer up, instead of going through its process and bringing me to the sign on screen, it hangs up on a black screen with white writing. It says the following:

Phoenix--AwardBIOS v6. 00PG
Copyright (c) 1984--2007, Phoenix Technical, LTD

Copy disk(s) Fail (40)
Press F1 to continue, F2 to enter Setup

**Edited: (It may actually not actually say "Copy disk(s) Fail (40)" as I can only see "opy" as the word begins to the left of my monitor. I ASSUME it says "Copy."

I pressed F1 to continue and it brought me to sign on screen. Everything seems fine. I restarted and it did the same exact thing. I did a system restore to last week when it was not doing this and upon restart, it did the same thing. It just sits there until I press F1. Why is it doing this and what can I do to fix it?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

A:Please help with error on startup

I don't know about fixing the actual source of that, but you could go to BIOS setup and find an option reagarding continuing with or without pressing F1 when an error occurs. Change it. It should boot without asking to press F1.

I have a new Lenovo laptop with Windows7 and everytime I wake it up or start it up it has an error that reads: Can Not Find C:\Program Files (x86)\Lenovo\VeriFace\VerifyHost.exe. If I click OK it goes away but it's getting annoying.

The laptop had some kind of Veriface program that recognizes your face or something to log you on, but I didn't want it so I removed it from the Control Panel. I also went in to msconfig and unchecked that program from the Start tab but it still does this. Is there something on the msconfig Tasks or Applications tab that I need to remove also? I don't see anything on there that says "VeriFace" or something like that and I don't want to start removing things just because I'm not sure what they do.

Any help appreciated.

A:How do I get rid of this startup error?

press winkey + r
type msconfig and hit enter in the box that appears
in the new window select use selective startup. the go to the startup tab
Find the offending app and untick it, okay out.
As a general rule just about everything there can be safely removed.
You can experiment easy enough.

Note: you will get a single message basically telling you msconfig was used the next time you startup, it will go away if you untick the box before closing it and not bother you again.

After getting off of the internet my computer shut down by itself, I restarted it and the Windows Vista Startup Repair came up. I ran it and checked the details and it had this listed as a problem, "Unknown Bugcheck: Bugcheck dl. Parameters = 0x9897, 0x2, 0x8, 0x9897". I started it in safemode and ran a virus check but a black screen with an error message came up, I didn't get the whole message because it went away to quickly but what I got was something about unverified file was not digitally signed and it could be the cause of malware or a virus". I do not have a Windows Vista install cd, so I can't use that. Also, after trying to restart it, the computer made beeping noises but it wouldn't start. I really hope you can help me as it is a brand new computer. Thank you for your help.

EDIT: I got the black error message screen again, here is the message. " A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. If you have a windows installation disc, insert the disc and restart your computer. Click repair your computer, and then choose a recovery tool.

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!!

Recently I've been getting a blue screen when I start windows. It occurs randomly (sometimes computer starts fine) and I can't seem to fix it. The following text is at the bottom:

STOP: 0x000000C5 (0xE1A7F000, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x805448E9)

The error screen also states I should go into the BIOS and disable shadowing. Since I have no idea what this is, I'd rather not mess with BIOS settings. Also, in the Event Viewer I found error entries with this:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

The computer is a new Gateway CX2610 Convertable Laptop. Microsoft Windows XP Tablet PC Edition 2005 Version 2002 Service Pack 2.
Intel(R) Pentium(R) M processor 1.73GHz 512 MB RAM.

Any help would be appreciated, this is annoying me.

My computer recently froze up and I had to restart my computer by holding in on the power key. Upon rebooting I now get a pop up stating that windows explorer has encountered an error must close. Upon letting it close the screen refreshes and I will get the error again if I try to access my computer icon on the desktop or most any other action requiring explorer. I tried going into safe mode but get the same error there also. Tried a system restore to the previous day but that did not help. Also windows live messenger also seems to hang at trying to log in and I can only get out of it by going to task manager and ending it there. Internet explorer will not run at all. Mozilla firefox will. I am running an oem version of xp home.
