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.

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

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 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.

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.

Nothing is running poorly on my computer but I am starting to think that there was something that happened and my computer was able to remove it but maybe not all of it or there are damaged files from it?

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.

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.

Error loading C:\Windows\System32\grcqaskq.dll

Access is denied.

Can someone tell me why this keeps popping up after the two files were identified as being infected? Here is my HJT logfile if it helps to resolve the issue. Thanks in advance.

A:Startup Error

When I just Googled that file name, there was only one return...pointing to this thread. That makes it appear that the file is not a Windows file, nor one of a popular program, otherwise the returns would have been much longer.

This could have come from a program that you chose to install, but it could also have come from some kind of malware. I would start by running Malwarebytes and an AV scan, if those came up clean, I would go to msconfig and do a selective startup, disabling everything on the Startup tab. Reboot and see if the problem disappears, if so, reenable the startup items one at a time, rebooting each time, until the problem reappears. When it does, then you know where the problem lies and can decide how to deal with it.

If the problem never disappears, the only other thing that I can think of is that it is a driver doing the deed, but tracking that down is a little more complicated.

EDIT: You might be able to shorcut this procedure by doing a search for the file. If found, it's location or looking at it properties might suggest it's origin.

I'm having this exact problem as well, mostly it happens when the computer hasnt been used for a few hours. I turn it off and then the next day when I log on it gives me the same error as lsited above.

Generally I can then start windows normally and it will run without further problems sometimes I have to start in last known good configuration tho.

I had another problem with the computer and formatted less than 2 weeks ago which cured that problem thankfully, but this startup error is persisting.

A few days ago there was a power cut (this means I can't use my laptop as it needs an external monitor). So I turned it off and left and when I came back it had started itself up and was running the startup error repair tool. It failed obviously so I went through all the tools and nada.
Starting it with normal settings gets it to the windows logo, it the does nothing for a while, crashes and restarts. The same goes for trying to load it in safe mode.
I followed this guide http://www.selectrealsecurity.com/fix-windows-startup/ none of it worked so it directed me here.

Ok, I had Window Xp and Ubuntu. I wanted to get rid of ubuntu, so in windows XP, under computer management and disk management, I right clicked and deleted the partition. Then I created a new logical drive. However, when I restarted my computer, it says: "Verifying DMI Pool Data.............. GRUB Loading stage1.5. GRUB Loading, please wait... Error 17" And now I can't start up Windows XP anymore!

Anything I can do?

A:Startup error 17

Hi

Deleting the Ubuntu partition deleted the GRUB bootloader, which gives error 17. To fix it, you need to rewrite the MBR so that it no longer contains GRUB.

You will need an XP CD to do this. Boot from the CD, and at the first screen, press R to enter recovery console.

It will then ask you which install you want to log on to. Type in 1 and press enter. You may then need to enter the administrator password (Blank by default)

Now type in fixmbr and press enter. It will give you a warning about a possible loss of data, press Y to continue.

Then type exit to restart the PC.

Hope this helps you

Hello, I was reading a previous post here on the forum where the user had a similar problem to me, however the thread had expired.
I apologize in advance if a thread like this already exists. I'm not trying to be a troll or lazy, I've just been searching all over the net for an answer to this and haven't found one yet.

When I start up my computer, I'm immediately welcomed by an error on the desktop screen:
C:\Users\username\Appdata\Local\Temp\MS 2011 Helper.dll

(Username of course would be my administrative account name)
And then it says it failed to run it at start-up. (I could screenshot it if needed?)
At the moment, this is just an annoyance at start-up. However my internet has been acting less than ideal and I thought perhaps it somehow was connected. The threads I've read have all said this error is maleware.
I typed the error code in google and found many other people with the same problem, but with different end paths. (Instead of MS 2011, it could be klhgklsj.dll)
I read all of the threads and most people said to scan it with malewarebytes and CC Cleaner and you're good to go.Neither an antivirus, Malewarebytes, or CC Cleaner pick up this issue. Some people have said this in their threads and their response was, "Well, I don't know. Make sure your CC Cleaner is updated."
