Windows 7 Boot Failure - Repair Fail, Memory Fail?

Oct 25, 2011

I recently built a new rig and I had a problem with one stick of memory. The other stick worked alright, but I've been getting random failures. Can bad memory be inconsistent? Right now, I can't start my OS up at all. It goes straight to the Windows Repair Launcher, which fails. When it gets there, I can either find a restore point or let it 'attempt to fix' for as long as I can endure. The restore point option results in 'instruction xxx failed. memory reference xxx failed.'This leads me to believe there is a problem with the memory. But, could it be the motherboard? I played a video game for hours last night, as well as surfed the web and ran other applications. Everything was fine, until I shut down. This isn't the first time this happened. Last time, I 'fixed' it by switching the 'good' memory stick with the bad. The bad resulted in getting the OS up, but lots of BSOD's

Security Updates FAIL, Reattempt At Every Boot But Always FAIL?

Sep 16, 2012

Since early August all my Security updates have been failing. It adds time to each boot up period as it goes through the updates and then at the end will say it's failed and is reverting all the changes. I have already done some research on this issue and ran "sfc/scannow" as well as "chkdsk/f/r." Both seemed to go through with no problems. After that I did a Windows update and 12 updates seemed to go through with no problem until the required reboot where we're back to the same issue of failing and reverting.

Driver Fail Windows 7 Won't Boot Or Repair?

Jun 14, 2011

My friend has had this laptop for the past year or so, March 2010; and just recently her laptop decided to stop booting. Every time I try to boot windows it gives me a BSOD. All I have is the boot/repair disk from 2010; however it isn't working properly when I try to repair the OS or boot from the disk. It's a toshiba and it came with a repair program, but it also removes data on the HDD. Is there a link to a proper boot disk that I can maybe download to a flash drive and boot from there and repair? Or is there at least an easy way to pull the information off of her HDD before using the Toshiba program? Is it possible to just plug in the laptop to my computer, turn it on and access it from my personal computer? I also have an OEM version of Windows 7 from when I built my own computer, can I use that to repair her OS or will it recognize that it's not the same computer and fail? I know, lots of questions, you don't have to answer them in sequence, just tell me what would work best .

Note: She does NOT have a restore point on her laptop, I was able to get that far on my own before I decided to ask on this forum.

Windows Won't Boot, System Repair Fail, Error 2000-0146, Knoppix Cd?

Jun 18, 2012

I tried to boot in safe mode, it got stuck in mid boot. I tried to boot it with system repair, it said it was loading files and then it got stuck on a screen that said copyright Microsoft Corporation and had a green loading bar. My husband's laptop is exactly the same as mine, so I used it to create a system repair cd. I set the laptop up to boot from cd and tried it, but I got the same thing with it sticking on the green loading bar. I ran a diagnostics on my computer and everything passed except a hard drive test in which I got the error 2000-0146. I checked that error on the dell support website and it told me to take the hard drive out and plug it back in. I have not done this yet as the instructions to do so required me to disassemble the whole computer just to get at the hard drive. After some online research, I created a Knoppix (Linux based os) 6.7 boot cd and booted from the cd drive. This worked beautifully and I am now in the process of transferring all my important data from the hard drive to an external hard drive.

So here are my questions. Everything I read about error 2000-0146 says it's a hard drive failure but if that were the case, why does the hard drive seem to work fine when accessed from a Linux OS? Also, how would disconnecting and reconnecting the hard drive fix the problem? I really don't want to take it apart if I don't have too. Could the windows boot files somehow be corrupted causing it not to boot, and if so could I access them with Knoppix and replace them with good files

Windows Will Not Boot Even With Clean Install, Windows Repairs Fail, Repair Disc Won't Work

May 23, 2012

I have a Sony Vaio VGN-NW270F 15" laptop with Windows 7 (64 bit) Home Premium. 320 gb. Oh i'm also out of warranty.Computer always freezes at the point where it says "starting windows" and stays frozen. I even left it for alone for 24 hrs and it stayed on that screen.

Things I've tried:

1. I used safe mode to repair windows = just restarted in normal mode and froze at "windows is starting"

2. Used safe mode to restore to earlier point = could not to restore message

3. Created repair disc from another Vaio win 64 = froze at "windows is starting"

4. Used registry clean and malware bytes in safe mode = malware bytes found nothing & reg clean did nothing

5. Fresh install of windows 7 = windows bar loaded then froze at "windows is starting"

6. Reformatted hard drive & performed fresh install = windows bar loaded 7 froze at same point

7. Bought new Western digital 320 gb SATA Hard drive & tried install of win 7= same results

Windows 7 Startup Repair Fail

Aug 13, 2011

Usually I can resolve most issues myself but this one appears to have stumped me so I am graciously turning to you in my time of need.I am unable to boot Windows 7 on my Acer Ferrari One F0200 netbook. It has Windows 7 home premium 64-bit installed but due to an unknown problem or possibly persistent virus I have been unable to boot into windows.

below is a list of things i've tried up til now:

Tried to boot in all safe mode options (failed)
Tried to boot from last known good configuration(failed)
Tried to system restore from all available restore points (failed)
Tried multiple Startup Repairs(all failed)

"Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically"

Problem signature:
Problem event name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem signature 01 : 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 02 : 6.1.7600.16385
Problem signature 03 : unknown


while writing this I managed to get a blue screen message(disabled the option to automatically restart on system failure) which had been flashing for a nano second previously.A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. it says to check for viruses on your computer remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run chkdsk /f to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.I had already ran the chkdsk /f before I saw this message and no files were corrupted/no bad sectors. So this is where I'm at, at my wits end hoping that I dont lose all my data.

Windows 7 Boot Fail

Nov 13, 2011

I'll try to make sense of this to you. My computer has been working great until last night. Today, it bricked on me.Last night and until a out noon today, I was seeing occasional corruption of the image on screen (strange blocking/pixellation like a bad hd tv picture). I started getting locking-up freezes, which I could sort of unfreeze with ctrl-alt-del. This happened frequently while browsing the net las night (oddly games worked fine).Today at one point the whole image started flickering/fluctuating up and down and then the image scrambled totally and was locked-up, so I hard reset.Upon restart, bootup fails. Chkdsk, memory scan (from startup repAir and the installation disk), image and system recovery fail. When I read the detailed results from start up recovery, it tells me that no drive is present.So, did the drive fail, or maybe it came unplugged inside the tower (unlikely bc the tower hasnt moved). Or, did intel smart response technology screw up and the cache is screwed and it's messing up the primary drive it accelerates? Windows 7 64-bit OS on z68 mobo with 64gb SSd accelerating 500gb primary.

Why Did Windows 7 Boot Fail

Jul 19, 2009

Recently I just tried starting my computer on and it wouldn't boot. I left my computer in locked mode then it eventually went to sleep. I kept trying to restart it and had no luck, I checked inside the cpu was running and the dvd drive was still able to open and close. My USB mouse or keyboard weren't powering on though neither was my monitor showing anything I didn't hear any beeps. So I kept disconnecting the power outlet from the wall since that's the only way I could restart it.

Fail To Boot Up Windows 7

Oct 10, 2011

So what happened was yesterday AVG detected a virus on my computer and asked if I wanted to get rid of it. I clicked remove or whatever it was and forgot about it. However, every 2-3 minutes it mentioned another virus needed removal on my computer. I ran a scan twice and said it was clean.

So I thought about trying to use a different antivirus program. I downloaded MSE and ran a scan. It detected some kind of trojan virus so I removed it and was glad thinking that this was the hidden problem. MSE told me to restart the computer to finish the clean up or whatnot, so I restarted the computer.

However, now when my computer is loading, I'll reach the first Windows 7 screen showing the symbol, then my computer will automatically restart. As if I clicked the reset button. I tried using the startup repair but it could not fix the problem. I also tried the restore windows at a earlier point, but the computer still faills to reach the desktop. I read somewhere that I should try to access the desktop in safemode, but the same "reset" problem occurs when I try to make it to safemode.

Please if anyone could help me fix this problem I would greatly appreciate it. I did not delete AVG so I had 2 antivirus programs (AVG and MSE), and someone told me that could be the problem and to delete 1 of the antivirus programs, but I cant even get to the desktop to do so. I have windows 7 64-bit. Prior to this, the computer was working fine. I was thinking of reformatting the computer but I rather not lose everything I have on the computer unless its the only option left.

Dell M1330 Boot Fail

Jun 10, 2009

I have very recently installed Windows 7 7100 64bit with little success. I can use the M1330 for about 20 minutes and then bam..... the lappy will turn off and when I try to turn it back on I get nothing but a weird white screen. Not even the dell boot screen will appear.

When I first installed Windows 7 it found all drivers but due to this issue I have sought to change a few key drivers. Such as, the nVidia 8400 drivers and I have updated the SATA drivers to R154198

My specs are:

- 4 GB of RAM

- 2.4 CPU

- 200GB HD; 7200RPM

- nVidia 8400 Video card

I have heavily searched the net with no joy. please help.

Windows 7 Fail To Boot After Windows Update?

Jul 9, 2011

I restarted my windows 7 Compaq NX 7400 laptop yesterday after an automatic windows update and since that time I have been unable to reboot my laptop. I have tried all recovery/repair options on the windows installation disc but to date now have worked.The message shown is "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause". I having exhausted all the repair options and now worked, I opted to to do another installation on the same partition;after all files were copied and the machine rebooted I ran into the same problem; only this time the error was "Windows failed to start.

Windows 7 Fail To Start?

Jun 24, 2011

I just recently bought an Acer Aspire 5532 from a friend of mine. Everything was working fine for days, until I powered down using the power button rather than the shut down button on-screen. Ever since then, when I turn on the computer it reads "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." I have the options to either 1. launch startup repair (which freezes the computer) or 2. Start windows normally (which takes me back to the start). I have no installation disk, I've tried safe mode (freezes) along with last good configuration?

Windows Virtual PC Fail?

Aug 17, 2011

I wanted to setup a VPC starting with an image of my laptop but I'm having great difficultly, I'm running Windows 7 home premium x64.I started by using Acronis true image to take an image of my PC (a .tib). I then used Acronis true image to convert that to a vhd, however when trying to create a VPC using the vhd got a message that the vhd could not be attached. After some research I found that it was because the partition I imaged was 320GB and Windows Virtual PC could not handle it. Using diskpart I reduced the vhd partition size then using Vhd resizer to reduce the size. I was able to attach the vhd and start the virtual machine but received a message from Windows Boot Manager "The boot selection failed because a required device is inaccessible", so I inserted the Windows home premium x64 DVD into the dvd drive but the virtual machine would not boot from it.

I could not do anything so I decided to start a new virtual machine and try and install windows from scratch. I created a fixed sized vhd using Windows Virtual PC, I inserted the Windows DVD into the drive and booted the virtual machine. This time virtual PC would allow me to boot from the DVD drive however I receive an error "Attempting to load a 64-bit application, however this CPU is not compatible with 64-bit mode" but this is the version of Windows I am running on my PC.I have also downloaded Securable to ensure that Windows Virtual PC will work I get a maximum bit length of 64 and Yes for both hardware D.E.P and Hardware Virtualization.

Windows 7 Fail To Start After Update?

Jul 9, 2011

I am running windows 7 32-bit and a few days ago I installed a windows update. When my computer restarted it entered the loading screen, but then the screen went black and after failing to load windows, gave me the option to start system repair. I did, and was subsequently able to run system restore, which took me back to before the update and my computer started normally again. I turned off automatic updating, but today when I restarted my pc the update installed again. Tried running startup repair, but there is no more option to enter system restore. When startup repair finishes, it says it can't automatically fix the problem. Upon entering advance restore options and selecting system restore, it indicates that the specified action could not be located and in any other instance says that system restore is offline.

Why Do Half Of Windows Updates Fail

Oct 2, 2011

recently I've been noticing Windows 7 doesn't even automatically check all the updates it claims are important. Yes, I have it set to install Windows Updates automatically, but this would still prompt me to "start" the updates.I'm pretty sure it has something to do with my having Microsoft Office 2003 (the 2003 version of MS Word, Excel, PPT, etc.) but, that's not an excuse. They're prompting me to install updates for my software they're JUST releasing, and yet they fail seemingly almost every time? Do they even test the sh!t they release to the public?And how come sometimes they'll install if I manually do it myself as opposed to when I try doing it automatically? Why should it be any different?
