Startup Repair Loop, Safe Mode Won't Work?

So I was using a program called TuneUp Utilities, and I used this function called the Disk Doctor to check for errors in my computer.While it was checking for errors, my computer shut down automatically and when I started it up again a black screen appears giving me the option to either load Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally. When I start Windows Normally, everything goes fine until I see the cursor. Nothing happens and then the computer restarts on it's own. I've even tried disabling restart on system failure but when I did that the computer just stayed at a dark screen until I restarted it.When I load Startup Repair, it searches for problems for like 5 minutes and then says it can't be automatically fixed. It says to remove all USB cables and everything (which I did but had no effect) and lets me have advanced recovery options.When I load advanced recovery options, all that appears is Startup Repair again.When I press F8 and do a Safe Mode, it starts up normally but once I see the mouse cursor the computer restarts.

System Repair And Safe Mode Won't Work
my laptop starts up as the "windows did not shut down properly" screen where I can start windows normal to do repair. When I start windows normally it sends me to the repair screen. And when I select system repair it just freezes at a light blue and geen screen and the only thing showing is my cursor. Ive tried to run the system in safe mode but it freezes at classpnp.sys, and eventually sends me back to the repair screen that is frozen. I don't believe I have my windows 7 installation disk for my laptop so that is out of the equation.

My brother was using my computer and said it was updating when this happened so Im not sure what caused all this.

Windows 7 Won't Boot / System Repair / Restore / Safe Mode Won't Work
I have recently installed windows ultimate x64 on my computer.i have an asus p6t deluxe v2 mobo, i7-960 cpu and a wd velociraptor hdd. The install went ok, I even managed to restart my computer a few times after but after windows updates installed it won't boot. I tried to boot into safe mode, restore from the installer, and repair, none worked. After startup repair it says: "a patch is preventing the system from starting" and I get a 0x1f error code.(Preventing windows from downloading any updates didn't work either)

Windows 7 Won't Startup Properly - Stuck In Startup Repair Loop
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 hadn't made a backup). I booted it, and again it wouldn't start properly. At this time, safe mode booted fine. After trying various things (even using a compressed air can to get rid of dust) and a few hard shutdowns, suddenly every option from the advanced boot menu took me to startup repair except 'Repair your Computer' which gave the normal options for repair (although now it only gives me 2, Startup Repair and DataSafe Restore and Emergency Backup. Now when I do startup repair, some times it says it has fixed the problem, and sometimes it says it cannot be fixed automatically and gives me information on the problem (a few things it said were: 'StartupRepairOffline', 'AutoFailover' and 'CorruptRegistry').

I can't reinstall my computer because then I would lose my precious files.

Is there some way I can save my files and reinstall or even just save my files somehow or am I screwed?

Startup Repair Runs, Can't Use Pc, No Safe Mode
every time i turn on my computer, I first get a message from AMI - "SATA 1:S.M.A.R.T. Status BAD". When I press F1 to continue, it progresses normally, until recently when i got "windows is loading files" then "startup repair" instead. Startup Repair searches, then finds a hard disk problem which it cant fix, and I can choose to reboot or try "advanced options"I've already tried safe mode, same thing happens.I've looked around, still not sure how to proceed - what caused this and can it be fixed without replacing my hardware?

Laptop Won't Startup In Safe Mode Or Normally
My HP laptop has been running slow and crashing for a few days. I downloaded and ran malwarebytes but it didn't find anything. My AVG 2011 stopped working yesterday and now tonight the laptop won't even start up in safe mode. Its launching straight into windows, then into system repair, which fails.

Windows 7 Won't Open; Safe Mode Won't Work?
When Windows looks like it is starting, the "Windows is loading files..." message comes up. It then goes into Startup Repair, which either can't detect problem or "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically". I have tried pressing F8 for the safe mode menu, but none of the options there work either as selecting any of them just ends up in Startup Repair again. Sadly I have no system restore point or system image to reload. I have run the Windows Memory Diagnostic, which found no problems. I know that reloading Windows is almost certain to fix this problem, but I have a handful of files that I really, really don't want to lose by doing this. Is there any way that I can save my files?

Windows 7 Won't Boot, Startup Repair Doesn't Work
I've had an ongoing war with my PC for four days now. I have Windows 7 and it refuses to start up. Originally I tried starting up normal, it gave me two choices: system repair or start as normal. If I chose normal it would show the windows logo then reset. If I chose repair it would turn black for several minutes, then go to a blue screen for several minutes and wouldn't move past that. So i tried to boot from CD. I have the option of installing windows or repair. I chose repair, once again it goes to the blue screen and nothing happens (and I've left it on this blue screen a good 15 min mind you.) Finally I submitted and decided to just re-install windows. it goes to the starting setup... and sits there indefinably.

Windows 7 Safe Mode Boot Redirecting To Startup Repair
Earlier today I tripped over a headphone cord and it flung my computer off my desk. I have an HP omni PC. It's the kind that had the computer and the monitor built together. I picked it back up off the floor. The power cord came out on impact. I set everything back up and was relived to hear it turn on. I selected start windows normally (win 7 64 bit) and it sat at starting windows forever. I eventually manually shutdown the computer. I powered back on and I got an option to start windows normally or use startup repair.

I thought it would be a good idea to go into startup repair. It just sat at the light blue screen with the large white mouse sitting there. Nothing happened. Nothing appeared on screen. I turned off the computer again and am just leaving it there for now. I am worried that the hard drive may have been disconnected from the fall and that's why windows won't start. Or maybe the hard drive was damaged. I tried doing a safe mode boot but it redirected me to startup repair.

Windows Won't Startup, Startup Repair Can't Fix It
I hate it when this happens and so far, the startup repair has always been able to fix the problem. Today, I'm not so lucky.
I'm using my other built right now coz I have to work. I don't remember what updates I did last night but I do remember the dvd drive firmware was updated.I popped in the system restore disc, start it up and the same page appears: Start with windows start up or Start windows normally. Tried both and neither one of them would bring up system restore. This built was only a month old and was hardly used so far so no system restore point was created at this point. I have files in it that I would like to keep but I can't get to them right now so a clean fresh install is needed but I can't get it up.

Startup Repair Endless Loop?
I was recently using my girlfriends computer when a message came up saying something about an automatic update then went into a repair mode. Then when the computer restarted it went into startup repair. It says it can't find any problems, and when you restart it, it keeps going to startup repair. The computer originally had XP on it, and her step dad installed 7 right before we moved across the country, so we don't have any kind of install or recovery discs

Startup Repair Boot Loop?
I get into startup repair everytime i boot my pc which is never successful. I am definitely goin to explain it in detail but dis is basic problem nd plz dont mind typing coz m typing fast on iphone which may cause errors in typing!Yesterday,i used my pc for 7-8 hrs continuosly which is not big deal but due to it i can't figure out my action which caused problem. I kept it on for downloading at night nd when in morning i got boot screen which comes when pc is directly turned off. I did Start Windows Normally nd i got usual windows 7 loading animation for a secong nd den it started startup repair after that everytime i boot it takes me to startup repair resulting in continuos failure. I hv googled nd found many threads but none matched my exact one. Startup infinity loop didn't work. Below r given few conclusions nd obstacles-1.) i can't get into advanced boot options using F8. But i can get into recovery menu using install dvd nd view advanced options frm startup repair.

2.) System restore din't work. I mean its not successful in restoring.3.) bootrec.exe didnt work4.) imp point to be noted is my last update was on 23 dec while pc worked fine on 24 th & 25th dec means dont knw wat happened 25th night that caused this problem on 26th morning.5.) sfc/scannow says "a startup repair is left to be completed." it says to complete that first then use sfc/scannow.6.) chkdsk results in last line saying failed to transfer log......7.) i also get a report like many others about that problem signature.8.) repair install not possible coz windows can't start only.9.)i hv made a backup using cmd but is there any way without clean install?

Startup Repair Endless Loop?
After a (sloppily done on my part) multiple driver update on 7 Home Premium x64, I've been tossed into Startup Repair. SR goes into an endless repeating loop - never reporting failure, just an endless repeat. I've used the Windows 7 install disk and tried System Restore. Twice System Restore has reported success, yet I immediately end up booting back into the Startup Repair loop.

I am given no options - when I try F8 I'm simply tossed back into Startup Repair. I'm thinking there may be a command prompt way out of the loop, but I'm clueless in that area.

Startup Repair Infinite Loop?
I'm not sure if I am in the right category but I'll just leave it here. I downloaded a corrupt file and my computer went crazy and so I shut it off and now it keeps going through the start up repair over and over. It'll say that it's rapaired and it will restart but then it will go straight back into doing it over and over. Can someone please answer this quickly because finals are next week and I have unfinished papers and websites and animations on my computer that need to be handed in pronto.

Windows 7 Startup Repair Loop?
I am currently working on an emachines e525 (its for a friend, I would never buy an emachine) and when I got the machine it was stuck in a boot loop to the startup repair. I could not boot into windows via safe mode or any other method. I ended up reinstalling Windows 7 and everything looked fine until I rebooted. The startup repair loop started again. Frustrated at this point I formated the hard drive and installed Windows XP. It was working great for a while even after I rebooted several times. I went to bed and then today turned the laptop back on and I got the unmountable_boot_volume blue screen.I also have ran chkdsk multiple times and it doesnt find anything to repair. I also ran a memory test (even though I did not believe that is/was the issue and it came back with no errors.

New Hard Disk-startup Repair Loop?
The hard drive on my laptop recently failed and I purchased and installed a new one to replace it. I cloned as much of the data off of the old drive as possible. However, when I go to boot from it, it gets stuck in a startup repair loop. Startup repair doesn't find any problems, but it is unable to boot windows. I installed windows 7 on a new partition see if I could do a repair install to the other hard drive, but that does not appear to be possible. I've ran chkdsk and it does not find any errors. Is there anything else that I should try to be able to run the older install, or should i just start reinstalling everything.

Statup Stuck On Startup Repair Loop
my problem is rather odd (or at least I haven't seen it before). Whenever I boot up the netbook it goes right into startup repair, without the option to cancel it, even if I try to start windows in safe mode (or any other startup options for that matter), the system launches the startup repair.The repair itself runs fine (doesn't freeze or antyhing like that), however it is never able to fix the issue ("Startup Repair is unable to repair this computer automatically").

The problem details read as follows:

Problem signature:
Problem event name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem signature01:
Problem signature02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature03: unknown
Problem signature04: 6

Installing New HDD Causes Startup Repair Loop?
I have been fighting with this tower that I am working on for a bit and I need to solicit your experience.his is an older tower, a Radiant S336-024 with an Intel 945G board.I am installing an SCSI Samsung 40Gb HDD and a SATA 180 Gb HDD.I had it booting before. I installed windows 7 with the 40 installed and it was hit and miss. I have turned off the automatic updates and now it will run some of the time. I often restart the system and it goes straight to Startup Repair without warning.

Screen Doesn't Work, Only On Safe Mode?
One day i was on my computer and it crashed and since then every time i try and open up my computer normally it will reach the point where my user has to log in and cut out just before.

When i uninstalled the graphics driver it allowed me back onto windows normally except when i reinstalled the driver (on the normal version of windows not saftey) after the restart it went back to the same problems.
