Startup Repair - Windows Cannot Repair This Computer Automatically

May 11, 2011

I am pretty sure that a virus cause this, right before my computer shut down on it's own my anti virus popped up and said that a Trojan was found but I didn't have to do anything. Then the computer shut down and when it restartrd started to load files and then go into startup repair, only it couldn't fix it. I tried a restore, but again it said that the startup files wern't there. I just quickly scanned the diagnostic details and noticed something that said "boot critical file C:CI.dll is corrupt".

Computer Does Startup Repair If Not Shutdown Properly

Dec 1, 2011

Anyway, anytime my Sony Vaio computer isn't shut down properly, or the screen times out due to inactivity, it will show a screen that says "windows is loading files" and then proceeds to do a start up repair in which it will try to restore my device to a previous setting (or something like that). When i first got this computer, as with my previous HP, I could close the lid..no harm no foul. After having this one for a month it started doing this out of nowhere.

Computer Needs Startup Repair, But Can't Use Mouse Or Keyboard?

Aug 12, 2012

I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this, but recently on my girlfriends computer we installed a webcam and everything kinda froze. Upon restarting the computer it comes up with the screen saying a device failed and may need a startup repair. Also gives the option to start windows normally. The problem is the keyboard is not recognized to choose an option. It counts down and goes to the screen to start the startup repair, but again no mouse or keyboard. I have tried accessing the BIOS but considering the keyboard is not working i cannot do that either. I'm not sure what all is in it as I got it from a friend when he built a new one. It is a custom computer, not from a typical manufacturer. It has worked perfectly up until trying to install the webcam. I have tried using every USB port and also tried using a ps/2 converter to no avail. I'm not sure what to do anymore, and I'm afraid of messing with it too much or hard-booting it too much.

Computer Won't Get Past Startup Repair Screen?

Jun 25, 2012

Okay, so I woke up my computer from sleep mode yesterday, and it worked perfectly fine for all of five minutes before everything except my cursor froze. I waited for it to unfreeze or give me a "not responding" message for about twenty minutes, but when it didn't, I manually shut it down by pressing the power button, since I couldn't get to the start menu. But when I turned it back on, an error message appeared. I don't remember exactly what it said, but it gave me the option to either: "Launch startup repair (reccomended)" or "Start Windows normally". So I chose to launch the startup repair since it said that it would fix anything that had caused my computer to stop working, but it's been "searching for problems" for about five hours now! The blue bar just keeps scrolling past, but other than that, nothing's happening. Does anyone know how to fix this? Or should I call someone to check it out? Will I lose my files? I tried to "Start Windows normally" as well, but nothing happened at all... Oh, and it's an Acer laptop with Windows 7 on it

Computer Getting Stuck At Startup Screen - Repair Unsuccessful

Jun 2, 2011

Recently my desktop has started having issues. I purchased it new in january and within this last month when I start it, it gets stuck in the startup screen. When I try to do startup repair it always is unsuccessful. When I view the details it lists this "problem signature 07: Bad patch" I have tried doing a system restore to every point it lists and it says "the instruction at 0xfba8ca53 referenced memory at 0x06e2f90f. The memory could not be read. Click ok to terminate". When I try to enter safe mode it doesn't work either.

Windows 7 Will Not Boot - Startup Cannot Repair This Computer Automatically

Apr 7, 2011

I have a toshiba laptop that runs windows 7 32bit home premium and it is not booting properly. When I turn it on t will show the microsoft logo and says "starting windows" but never gets past that point. I have tried all the fixes to no avail including, safe mode (will not boot into safe mode..starts to load but stops at drivers/atipcie.sys and sits there for a minute or two and goes to the repair startup recommended screen. I have tried startup repair and done it many times because I have read it can take several times (it says "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically") I have tried the windows repair disc using system restore but it says no restore points found, even though i know they are on my computer. All of my school files are on this computer and while I have some of there backed up on a external hard drive there are some more recent files that are not. What can I try without a clean install to try and repair this?

Computer Won't Boot - Failed To Do Startup Repair And Restarts

Feb 19, 2012

Basically the issue is that my computer won't boot. I have had it for just over a year and have never had any issues with it. It's protected and isn't used for anything dodgy, my brother uses it for SWTOR and I use it mostly for uni work and a bit of gaming here and there. Anyway out of nowhere it failed to start. Its done this once before and last time I just told it start Windows normally and everything was fine. This time not so much.

It loads up Startup Repair even if I select start Windows normally as it fails to do so and restarts itself automatically. I left it to detect errors but when I checked it a few hours later it still said searching so I cancelled and left it. I tried again yesterday and have left it on for approximately 25 hours to no avail, it still says searching! I have a lot of stuff I haven't backed up so I want to save it. Also note that there are no pieces of hardware plugged into the machine at all, only the mouse, keyboard and monitor.

Basic Info :-
Acer
Windows 7 x64
8 GB Ram
500GB HDD
NVIDIA G Force 950

Windows 7 Computer Shuts Down And Boots Into Startup Repair

Sep 8, 2011

Windows 7 home premium
Dell Studio XPS 1645
I7 1.73 GHZ
6 GB DDR3
500 GB Toshiba

I have had this computer for just over a year and it has ran like a top. I was surfing the internet last night when it just shuts off (no slow down no blue screen) and boots into startup repair. It would not repair, just sat in there forever and would not boot into safe mode or anything. It just kept booting into startup repair for hours.

So I hit esc when it booted to startup repair, I go to the dell backup and restore, save my work documents and pics and let it boot to factory fresh windows install from the dell created partition. Windows reinstalls and loads fine, boots in and begins to update successfully and then reboots back into repair. This happens everytime it reboots. After sometime it will boot into windows fine. If I restart I am back into startup repair for half an hour or more.

Computer Turned On - Windows Spiral Begins Then Stops / Startup Repair

Jan 15, 2013

I'm having problems with windows starting upon my PC, however, it only occurs intermittently, but seems more frequent now. When booting, the windows spiral begins then stops, and it reboots to the screen to choose startup repair or start windows normally. If I do startup repair, it doesn't find anything to repair, and reboot usually works fine. If I choose Start Windows Normally, 75% of the time if works fine. When the computer runs, it's fine and everything seems to run normally, I don't get blue screens or other issues. I'm not sure where to find any recorded errors to get more specifics.

System:
Win 7 professional (upgraded from Home) 64bit
Gigabyte GA-H67MA-UD2H-B3 motherboard
Intel Core i5-2500 3.3GHz processor
8GB Ram (2x4gb)
Seagate 1TB hard drive (system drive)

Windows 7 Won't Startup Properly - Stuck In Startup Repair Loop

Feb 18, 2012

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 Unsuccesful, Startup Repair-no Fix?

Jul 30, 2012

the Startup screen. So I went to the Startup repair tool as was recommended, but after few tries nothing has changed. So I tried to recover to previous recovery point, but also nothing. Then I tried booting to Safe mode, and I saw that during the loading process there was no file shown as succesfully loaded. I might also know what could be the cause of this problem, because yesterday when I was shutting Win down, there was a blackout so obviusly some files are corrupted.

Windows Won't Startup, Startup Repair Can't Fix It

Aug 17, 2010

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.

'F8' does not do anything for me, not able to get to 'safe mode'. Computer is only 2yrs old.

Whilst looking for a keygen for Microsoft Office 2010, I must have got a bad file.. yay. When I clicked on the app, my computer immediately went to the Startup Repair window and has been relentless.

Finally, the Startup mode is over and I'm attempting to turn it back on ... and we're right back into Startup Repair.

My laptop keeps running Startup Repair during every startup and I can't boot my computer normally. I tried running Startup Repair multiples times but I'm still getting the same problem. Also, System Recovery did not work.What happens is Windows just starts to boot up for a few seconds, it says "Windows Starting", then the screen goes black for a second and it says "Windows is loading files..." and a loading bar fills up, then it goes black for a while and then the startup repair starts. The Startup Repair then says it cannot repair this computer automatically so I have to shutdown the computer. Problem signature:Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOfflineProblem Signature.

Stuck In Startup Repair?

Aug 7, 2011

I have a Sony Vaio laptop which is only a few months old. Here is the problem: i was trying to uninstall the trial version of office 2010 (after failing to activate it properly) and after going into control panel and clicking on "uninstall" to remove the office 2010 software, the computer automatically shut down and restarted and went into startup repair. after running this a couple of times, it said it was unable to fix the problems and asked to send the report to microsoft. then it just shut off by itself. i turned it back on and chose to "start windows normally." even then it went into startup repair and was again unable to fix the problems. then it just became stuck with a blank screen so i had to force power off. now i am not sure what to do. i don't want to keep restarting it only to go into startup repair and burn something out by turning it on and off so frequently.

Startup Repair Is Looping?

Sep 5, 2011

Windows 7 (32 bit) will not start.All I see is the 0X0000007b message."Starup repair" is no good either. When you run startup repair it goes in cirkles: It begins the start up, but you get 0x000007b. Computer rebootes. You can choose "startup Repair" og "start windows normally".You then choose "startup repair". It begins the start up, but you get 0x000007b. Computer rebootes. Etc., etc.. And you can not start windows normally either. It all began when Norton found something that needed to be taken care off. What can be done to fix the boot?Shal I use the "Farbar recovery Scan tool"?I'm not quite sure how it works... Are there other things that can be done?Anything that demands you to use windows one way or another is not possible for the time being as you see.

However, after the loading files bar, it does nothing but shows the blue bg with the cursor - there's no indication (like 'Attempting Repair' or etc) that it is doing anything in the background. It is supposed to be like this?Ive tried restarting the laptop in safe mode but it auto reboots to the screen where i only have two options of either launching the Startup Repair or launch normally (which i can't). Ive pressed F8, tried launching launching repair but it still ends up to the blue bg screen, doing nothing.I haven't installed any new software or Hardware though i hvae been leaving my laptop on for days on end to download stuff

For some reason my PC doesn't seem to want to load windows 7. I've had no problems until today, the only things i have changed is that I installed Bioshock 2, after I installed it my PC stopped reading DVDs yesterday (until I reset it, then continued to work normally). For some reason when I turned it on this morning it went into startup repair and said the Event Name: StartupRepairOffline.I have tried using system restore to 3 different points (2 of them before Bioshock 2 was installed and 1 being system restore point from yesterday). After I do any of them the computer restarts then does exactly the same thing again saying that I have don't system restore at all (as the 3 restore options are still available)

No Keyboard For Startup Repair

Jul 7, 2009

I am using an older Microsoft Bluetooth keyboard and mouse on my Windows 7 HTPC. This usually works wonderfully, except when the new startup repair screens are shown. These screens REQUIRE you to click a button (or press Enter) to continue, and will sit there for all etenerty until you do.

The problem is, they are shown before the drivers for the bluetooth keyboard and mouse are loaded, so I can not click them with out stealing a wired keyboard or mouse from my other pc. This seems like a pretty stupid choice to me, as every other such option has some kind of time-limit on it so that it will automatically continue.

Is there a way to either have the startup repair screens default to some option after a short time, or to completely disable them?

My baby likes to press the pretty blue power button on the machine, and therefore I see that screen often, and am getting tired of running for the keyboard every other time I want to sit and watch a DVD.
