System repair loop after motherboard change. Windows 7

Q: System repair loop after motherboard change. Windows 7

Hello,
I just installed a new motherboard in my HP desktop. It was the same model mobo and it went smoothly. Upon startup I get a windows logo and then it says loading windows files. Then it says startup failed and when I choose system repair it won't repair. I've tried things I've found on other forums but none of them worked. I'm desperate for your help!
I welcome any and all ideas and advice. Thank you!

Preferred Solution: System repair loop after motherboard change. Windows 7

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/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Why...did you replace the motherboard with an identical replacement?  What was going wrong...and what made you think that a MB replacement would solve it?
 
Is this topic a continuation of This One ?
 
Looks to me that you did not purchase/replace with an identical motherboard, going by your previous topic.  "Similar" is not "identical" in my world .
 
Please pursue the earlier topic you initiated, thereby avoiding unnecessary confusion an possbily conflicting comments from BC members.

Hello I've been unable to access my custom build computer since around yesterday I chose to restart my computer at around that time just because it was slowing up a little and I usually do that to help I had not installed any updates or new programs since days ago when there had been a few windows updates Upon returning to my computer I noticed that it had been unable to startup and had gone straight into system repair with it with repair Can't loop system - Startup repair restore/repair/commands being 'unable to repair this computer automatically ' I rebooted several times and noticed that it was not a visible BSOD but as soon as the 'starting windows' icon began to appear it went straight into startup repair I tried to boot into safe mode tried to load previous good configuration and all of the other advanced recovery options including system restore image and many command prompts This is what it shows after being unable to repair automatically Problem signature name Startup repair Startup repair loop - Can't repair with system restore/repair/commands offline Problem signature Problem signature Problem signature unknown Problem signature Problem signature Autofailover Problem signature Problem signature Corrupt file then my O S version Locale ID This diagnostic occurs every single time I run the startup repair Also command prompts I have tried using the WindowsRE command prompt and the one found on the 'repair your Startup repair loop - Can't repair with system restore/repair/commands PC' option on the windows installation disk are -All bootrec exe fixmbr rebuildbcd scanOs fixboot to crop up with the message 'completed successfully' and 'installations of windows ' -Chkdsks of my D disk where my files and windows are located now - sfc scannow which also shows no problems either -moving the SAM BOOT Software files using a guide I found on these forums I have sufficient anti-virus protection and must stress I didn't download any new software yesterday however I do frequently run the registry cleaner option of CCleaner if that is of any importance Again all efforts to bypass the load and boot into safe mode or with last good config all just automatically lead me into startup repair with a seemingly infinite loop of 'could not repair this computer automatically' If it must come to it I am willing to do a windows complete reinstall if that is the only way to resolve this but I just wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions of commands for me to try or anything like that I see a lot of people having this 'looping system repair' issue but their's were resolved I am not much of a tech whizz and I just want to know what the issue is if it was by one of my fault's so I don't mess it up again and how to solve it I have never had this issue before it was completely random and I build my PC from scratch in January If you need any more information please let me know Thanks I am running Windows Ultimate x bit and my HDD is connected via SATA GB S Braefost

Every time I start up my Windows 7 Home Premiuem x64 laptop, I get the startup repair screen. It always says that the problem cannot be fixed; this has been going on since last night and I've tried several methods, none of which seem to work. It won't even let me access the login screen; as soon as I start my laptop it goes straight to startup repair. Any help appreciated, thank you soo much!

A:Help - Windows 7 system repair loop

So I or someone else can better help you, what exactly have you attempted?
Did you create a system repair disc/ boot disc?
Did you create a system image prior to this problem?
When first starting up, do you see an option to boot into system recovery? On my HP I would need to
hit the F11 key at that prompt.

EDIT: Did this happen today after installing today's many Windows updates?
Did this problem occur shortly after installing new software/ program?

System: HP Pavillion dv6700 Notebook (2008 laptop)
OS: Windows 8.1
RAM: 4G

Summary:

I ran the "verified" command initially. After rebooting my laptop, tried numerous things that I found online to troubleshoot DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION.

-Tried to run verifier via CMD (Driver Verifier Manager) to remove settings (did not work). Nothing is enabled.

-Tried to do Restore, it failed and when I tried to restore to a different date all restore files seem to disappear.

-Tried to do Startup Repair (did not work)

-I have a windows 8.1 DVD but it seems like my cd/dvd drive is not working. So I connected my external DVD to USB and changed boot order so USB came up first. Still no luck.
The system currently in Automated Repair Loop.
When I choose troubleshoot option then advanced option then command prompt, it comes up in x:\windows\system32 versus c:\windows\system32

I don't know what else to try. Need help please ..... Mia ;)

I also need assistance with same issue, but i do not need to remove any data. I just want to be able to use my DX4831 regularly. My issue is that as soon as i boot up my gateway asks me whether i want to start normally or do a system repair, doesn't matter which one i choose. It will do the repair either way. After numerous continuous system repairs, it doesn't do anything. And occasionally i get the blue screen of doom. I know it is a hardware issue, however i have removed the ram and psu in case they became unseated for some reason, and reseated them. Still same issue. Started doing this last Saturday and has not remedied. I need serious assistance.

A:System Repair Loop

If you don't want or need to backup any data, then your simplest solution is to do a Windows re-install. But be aware that this will involve formatting your hard drive and wiping all data and applications off it. You will then need to re-install all your drivers, updates to date and your applications.
 
If you have the original install discs, or a recovery partition on your computer this is a fairly straightforward business and your manual or user guide should tell you how to do it. Unhappily, googling 'Gateway' suggests that they are not very big on support, but you should be able to get the manual, in .PDF format, from here -
 
http://www.manualowl.com/p/Gateway%20Computers/DX4831/Manual/83229
 
If you haven't got a Windows install disc, then go to Post #7 by dc3 in this topic and follow his instructions to create a legal install disc -
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/538151/windows-wont-boot-at-all/#entry3401527
 
You might as well follow his instructions all the way through as trying a repair from an install disc might do a full repair. If it doesn't, then you still have the option to do a full re-install, but try the repair first as this will save you having to find the drivers if it works.
 
Obviously, you are going to need access to another computer to download the manual and the Windows disc.

Hi,

I am unable to start up my laptop (Windows 7 Home Premium). TOSHIBA Satellite C660-1J6
It is stuck in a loop of 'attempting to repair this computer', which is unsuccessful and restarts.
There are no restore points to use.
I have received the BSOD which disappears quickly during startup.
I am able to start up in Safe Mode - however when I get to the login screen, the mouse and keyboard do not work.

I would highly appreciate any help or advice with this.
I am happy to reinstall windows as I have everything backed up. However I am unsure how to do so as I do not have a CD.

Kind regards

A:Startup Repair- windows cannot repair; Stuck in restart loop

Firstly, a Windows 7 install disc is a dvd, not a cd.

You would have to find a working PC to download a Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1 Iso File, either 32 or 64 bit, let`s assume you need 64 Bit.

After you have downloaded the iso file you have to burn it to a dvd at no faster then x4 speed. So the PC has to have a dvd burner and you`s need a blank dvd.

Everything you need is in the following links.

https://www.heidoc.net/joomla/techno...-download-tool

Free ISO Burner

Clean Install Windows 7

You can also use a usb stick to put the iso file on using Rufus. The usb stick must be at least 4 GB in size.

https://rufus.akeo.ie/

You must also have a readable key on your COA to activate windows after you install it.

You will also have to install at least your network/ethernet drivers to get online. Then get your other drivers, and run Windows Update, which will take a long time, sometimes 24 hours.

My desktop started acting up yesterday. Now starts, goes directly to black screen saying windows in loading data then to the start up repair tool. Here it says it cannot fix the issue and gives option to shut down, restart or go to further repair options. After running a SFC scan and that saying it fixed some issues the computer should be restarted all options but the repair tool disappeared from the list (ie the option to run a memory check, open command prompt or set the computer back to an earlier version). Starting in last good configuration was one of the first things I did but it didn't fix the issue and starting in safe mode does nothing to change this.

Any suggestions greatly appreciated!

I got a new computer on friday and have set it up today. I installed my windows 7 home premium 64bit and it downloaded,i then went on to put in my xfx AMD graphics card software disk and the download stopped half way through so i started it again and it got right to the last step where it has to re-start the computer. When it started up again insted of loading windows homepage it loaded the system repair screen, it searched and searched but said it had found no problem, so i clicked on the recovery tool restart option that then re-started the computer and the process started again and went straight back onto the system repair screen again.

Is there anything i can do to stop it?

A:Startup repair/system restore loop

Boot to "recovery environment"->command prompt. then

Code:
diskpart
list disks
(only 1 disk listed? Anyway select the disk number with win7)
select disk 0
list part
(how many partitions do you see? what number has the win7 partition. Assume it's 7 in this example)
select part 7
detail part
detail vol
exit
is it healthy? NTFS? What is volume letter? Is it readonly?

Hello,
Today I started my computer but it had a black screen so I restarted it. Afterwards it restarted itself again and comes to the system repair or start windows normally screen but my keyboard wouldn't work to start windows normally. Now I'm stuck on a loop where it tries to system repair and random BSOD appears. What do I do now? (I'm not really familiar with computers so forgive me if i cannot give much information about my computer)

Hello Today one of my family members' computers Windows -bit was infected with the System Restore virus which essentially ran a scan saying that her hard drive wasn't working correctly and all of her files had been lost A number of dialog boxes Startup infection Repair 'System following Restore' loop also popped up one after the other with various hard drive 'errors' and warnings Startup Repair loop following 'System Restore' infection Because she was panicking before I had a chance to look for a solution she chose to restart her computer and it is now stuck in a Startup Repair loop I have tried starting it in the various Safe Modes but it is met with the same loop The 'Loading Windows Files' screen comes up followed by the Startup Repair which after a very brief scan says no problems were found and the computer should be restarted I've tried searching the internet for a solution but every single one I've found requires access to the desktop which I don't have so I'm unsure how I can post a log to better assist you

A:Startup Repair loop following 'System Restore' infection

My apologies, but 'Startup Repair' actually says 'Windows cannot repair this computer automatically' after about 5 to 10 seconds of scanning, not that no problems were found.

On that screen, I am prompted to send information or not (like an error report), and my other options are 'view diagnostic and repair details' (see below), 'view advanced options for system recovery and support' (which prompts me to enter computer login details and select my keyboard input), and finish or cancel which restarts the computer and begin the loop again.

I'm not sure if it is normal, but the background is black as opposed to the Windows 7 blue logon background.

This is the diagnosis and repair details log:

Startup Repair diagnosis and repair log
Last successful boot time: 10/15/2011 1:17:57 AM (GMT)

Root cause found:
Startup repair has tried several times but cannot determine the cause of the problem.

Because Windows 10 uses a hybrid shutdown the procedure I am outlining may not be able to mount the drive so you can access your data. If you use a Windows Live account to login to windows the data may be encrypted.
 
On another computer download Fatdog64. This is a linux distro that will boot and hopefully recover you data to an external hard drive. 
 
Here is the iso file.  Fatdog64-702.iso
 
Once downloaded you can burn the iso to a CD or DVD by right clicking the iso file and selecting Burn Disk Image. You may need to access your BIOS/UEFI to make your optical drive the first boot device. Depending on the make and model of the computer you can press a key at boot to open a boot menu where you can select your boot device.
 
At the Fatdog Desktop you will see your hard drive partitions listed as sda1....sda2... sda3 etc depending on the number of partitions on the disk. For a Windows 10 computer your files may be on sda3. Click once on a sda partition. If the partition can mount a File Manage window will open. Clicking once on a folder will open it. If you do not see your files then close the file manager and select another sdaX partition.  If you are able to see your files then post back and I will give instructions on copying files to a USB flash drive or USB external drive. This will at least get your important data back if the partitions can mount. Hopefully they will.

Hi
My Toshiba laptop/Windows 8.1 installed a VLC Media player & Malware bytes today. I was instructed to Restart as 'drivers not working properly' & since then have been on the Automatic Repair loop. It says it cannot fix it - log file: C:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt, & I tried a few System Restore points but that just says -

System Restore could not access a file. This is probably because an anti-virus program is running on the computer . Temporarily disable your antivirus program and retry System Restore. You can try System Restore again If you continue to see this error, you can try an advanced recovery method.

Thing is I can't get into Windows or my laptop to disable the antivirus program. I'm not very techy so could someone please help me to get back into Windows.

I don't have any CD or DVD & no product key as the disc has been misplaced.

Hi All,

Yesterday my win vista crashed (Blue Screen , dumping memory cache) and then when it rebooted, it offered me to start or repair system which i tried but it started to just loop from the repair prompt to normal startup.

I tried safe mode and debug mode..sometimes i can see my desktop but the system crashes immediately. I purchased the Easy Re for Windows Vista from Neosmart and burnt it to boot from but nothing happens.
I lost my windows CD unfortunately.

Is there anything i can try?
 

A:Win Vista Restart Loop after blue screen (repair system)

When an operating system is present, your PC will not boot from a CD (eg the the one you made from Neosmart) until you go into the BIOS Setup and set the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device in the boot sequence.

To get into the BIOS Setup you have to press a specific key (it's the 'Delete' key on my PC) as soon as the manufacturer's splash-screen appears. It's not always the 'Delete' key though. It depends on the manufacturer.

Hello krviking, welcome to Seven Forums!





As it seems you have access to a PC so you can create the disk listed in the tutorial at the link below, create the disk and do a startup repair, you may need to do it as many as 3 separate times with system re-starts in between to complete the process of writing the Windows 7 boot files back to W_7.

A:System Repair repeat loop - Corrupt System32 Driver (no luck with CMD)

The best thing to do is try and find out which files are missing or corrupt (from an error if possible?) and restore it using another computer or a second copy of Windows on the Hard Disk to boot into and try to copy missing files into the corrupt installation Windows directory if you do not wish to reinstall/reformat.

For these types of problems, I always have a secondary backup installation of Windows if any issues started to arise. (I have Windows 7 Ultimate x64 as primary, and Windows XP as a secondary backup on a seperate drive)

Hi

My desktop system came with an OEM version of Vista Home Premium installed. This has since been upgraded to Ultimate.

Unfortunately the mother board has developed a fault and I will have to replace it.

The original motherboard is no longer available (manufacturer gone bust I think) so I have to replace it with a different make.

According to searches on Microsoft, to continue using an OEM version of vista any change of mother board must be of the same make and type as installed on the original system the OS version was licensed to.

If this is true I will have to purchase a full version of Vista or try and get another OEM version with a motherboard. (VERY expensive so not an option)

Has anyone had the same problem and know if this is true or know of a way round this.

Regards

Copperfield

A:OEM System change of motherboard

Hello Copperfield,

Sometimes if you use the same brand of motherboards you will still be able to use the same OEM Vista on it, but you will have to check with the OEM manufacturer to be sure though.

You could get a cheaper upgrade version and use this method below to install if you end up having to buy a retail copy.

Clean Install From Upgrade Vista

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Hey,
I am running windows 7 x64 and figured I had malware from the behavior of the computer. I installed several antivirus/rootkit removers and when I started loading them bam computer froze. When i restarted i was prompted to repair windows, so when I start the repair it goes on for about 20 min until it tells me it cannot resolve the issue. This is after I recovered windows. Help?

Contact Dell again and claim your warranty. They will fix it for you by either sending somebody to you or having you ship it out to them.

Good evening.
 
I am trying to repair a friends computer that is stuck in Windows Repair Startup. 
 
When it boots up I have two options
 
1)  Windows Repair Startup (recommended)
2) Launch Windows Normally
 
 
If I chose Windows Repair Startup, I see the spalsh screen, then I see wallpaper, but nothing else.  No icons, windows key does not work.  However the mouse is responsive. 
 
If I choose launch windows normally, I see the Windows splash screen, it appears to load, but then reboots itself.
 
 
I am unsure if it's 32 or 64 bit.  
 
Any suggestions?  My friend thinks it may be a virus, but I can't even boot it up to run Maleware Bytes to confirm. 
 
 
 
 

A:Windows Repair Loop

Boot into advanced boot options. (F8 on startup,) repair your computer, then choose last known good configuration. See if you can boot normally after that.
If not, in advanced boot options..use system restore to restore back to an earlier point in time.
 
if you want to try and run malwarebytes, i suggest trying to boot into safe mode and see if that works for you, then run malwarebytes from there.

When I turn my HP Pavillion, it shows "preparing automatic repair" and then becomes a black screen. I've tried booting from my installation disc but after loading for a while, it also becomes a black screen. F11 for HP recovery doesn't work either. Running a system test showed that the hard disk is okay although it doesn't appear in UEFI boot options. It does appear in legacy boot options. Any ideas?

I Just bought a new computer with Windows 8 already installed, started using it, and every 30 minutes after i booted it, it crashed. So i tried to restore the initial definitions of the computer by using the option to do so. While the computer was being restored, it crashed, and then started my problems. I booted the computer again, but now it goes automatically into automatic repair, goes to diagnose and the computer restarts, repeating the automatic repair "loop". I already tried shift+F8, it makes a screen appear for a few seconds saying to press ESC to get to the startup menu, no matter what i do at that moment the computer starts the "loop" again.Please Help Me!

Ive worked on a few computers where I would have a windows repair stop at a certain point. They have been different so its not the same problem, but that's really not the question. I mean once its in the repair It will continue to boot into the repair until its done. So if it doesn't finish it will keep booting to repair. My question is, is there any way to recover from that if it happens? I haven't found one yet.

A:Is there any way to recover from a windows repair loop?

This sometimes works, sometimes not:
Tap F8 as the system boots to bring up the Advanced Options Menu (aka Safe Mode menu)
Choose the last item, Return to OS Choices Menu
You may have a choice of Windows Setup and Windows. If you can boot into Windows, you can edit the Boot.ini file to either increase the timeout, or remove the Setup choice.

Hi, yesterday I bought a HP 15 G205 laptop (CPU 64 bit) and installed Windows 8.1 Pro (64 bit) on it and it worked great. Today I installed drivers for Epson Stylus SX125 printer and scanner. After all installations, I went to restar the computer and that's when the problem begun. It couldn't boot normally so it is now stuck in the repair loop and it cannot open the Safe mode or anything else because it keeps returning to the Repair loop. I read a few advices on the formus here but nothing hepled, I run the scan for the memory and HW as it was somewhere suggested but it just said "PASSED" with no errors. Can anyone help? Please just dont say I have to reinstall windows again because I am trying to avoid that. Thank you,WilliamCPO

Hi @WilliamCPO?, Welcome to the HP Forums!   It is a terrific place to find answers and tips! For you to have the best experience in the HP forum I would like to direct your attention to the HP Forums Guide:Learn How to Post and More. I understand that you purchased the 15-g205 notebook and installed Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit.  All was working well.You then installed a  Stylus SX125 aio printer. When you restarted the notebook it went into a repair loop. First I would try a hard reset.  HP Notebook PCs - Use Hard Reset to Resolve Hardware and Software Issues. Please remember to disconnect any peripheral devices such as printers, USBs or memory cards. Also, connect directly into an outlet and not in a power bar. Next I would try to enter safe mode to troubleshoot. HP PCs - Windows Safe Mode (Windows 10, 8). Next you could try booting to your Windows disk to do repairs or if necessary reinstall your Windows. If you do reinstall the operating system,once completed and you have confirmed it is working properly, before reinstalling the printer create a restore point to come back to should you need it. Please let me know the outcome.

Hello!
 
My friend's laptop is unfortunately stuck in the automatic repair loop. We've tried using command prompt lines bootrec and chkdsk on C drive, but so far no luck. 
It displays a message saying it couldn't repair the system and mentions this path: C:\windows\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt
 
His laptop has an SSD, an considering the chkdsk command did not find any bad files in the C drive, maybe there could be an issue with the SSD?
 
Currently, he doesn't have any back-up of his files or a recovery drive, so that's why I'm hoping to find an alternative way to make the laptop bootable again.
 
Edit: We figured out System32 was installed on drive X, but when trying to run checkdisk, it gives a message saying: 'Windows cannot run disk check on this volume because it is write protected' or something similar. Any way to get around this?
 
Hopefully someone can help!

A:Cannot get out of the Automatic Repair Loop - Windows 10

At this point, I have to agree that there might be more wrong than meets the eye.  I would first try to boot to a different OS, IE a Linux distro, maybe Ubuntu.  If that works OK, then it most likely is a Windows problem.  Or just replace the harddrive and try to install Windows 10 again.  If that goes OK, then try to retrieve the data from the old harddrive by placing it in a external enclosure.

Well Hello! First things first, sorry if this is in the wrong section of the forums.

But late last night I went to bed, and about 2 ish hours ago I woke up to find my Laptop in an reboot loop.

I would like to specify that unlike other instances, my computer only seems to show the Windows 10 Logo, the text "Preparing automatic repair" and then it reboots. Repeat.

I don't know what caused it, and I don't own a repair disk, nor do I have the money to buy something like EasyRE.

Any help at all would be appreciated.

A:Windows XP Boot Loop After Repair

You cannot do a repair install of XP...with a CD which reflects less than the current SP installed on the system.

The result is usually a clean install of the older O/S, rather than a repair.

Shortly after the Windows XP load screen appears, flashed out and cursor appears mid screen...the screen flashes blank and a reboot starts. As the title states I have attempted a windows repair from the install CD to no avail. I am unable to run a virus scan from my Norton CD's because the drivers for my boot volume's RAID are not given the opportunity to load. The only luck I've had in booting is with Bart PE. With this it appears the drive is intact, and it passes all the scans, however due to the fact that the DLL's aren't being loaded I can't run any of the diagnostics installed on my hard drive. I attempted running the diagnostics from my Norton CD in this environment as well, when they should begin an empty error box appears and then nothing happens when it gets closed.

Hello,

I am having trouble with my computer. It is stuck in automatic repair loop. I have tried almost every way to try to get out of it but it doesn't work. I don't have a CD or USB to restore anything as cyberpower did not send one. ( I sent a ticket request and they said I would have to buy a new one for $33 Should I just do this? ) I also tried some things with command prompt but it doesn't work

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

The computer was filled with all sorts of malware and Trojans, and I'm guessing one of the viruses caused the bootup to fail and causing me to do a startup repair every time I go on the computer. First,startup repair pops up saying it's trying to repair, but now It says go to a earlier restore point, so I tried going to a earlier restore point, but it says if the problem still occurs windows will start normally, but it keeps going In a loop!

Hello,
 
    I am currently running an HP touchsmart tx2-1370OUs Windows 7 64 bit. Recently my computer began to act very "sluggish." I ran Malwarebytes Antimalware with no success. After searching my computers symptoms online it seemed that a Java Updater virus could be the culprit. I uninstalled Java using Revo Uninstaller Pro, and restarted my computer. After restarting, it hasn't worked since.
 
   When I attempt to boot windows normally, the HP logo is displayed, and then the computer freezes and restarts on the windows logo. When I attempt to boot into safemode, the computer restarts again with no success. I have attempted to use system repair, system restore points, and a windows 7 repair disc. All of which had no success. I have also booted with a Kaspersky Rescue disc, and Hiren boot CD, both of which found and removed viruses, but did not fix my boot loop.
 
   Any help with this issue would be GREATLY appreciated!!!

I tried to repair windows xp using the installation cd and i could never get it to boot up. Dell says I must restore the operating system because the os files are corrupt.

I have hiren's boot cd and can see my data but can't move it anywhere to save it. Is there any way I can save my data or some of it before I restore? Especially since the pc won't boot to windows at all?

Thanks.
 

A:Windows XP Repair In Loop Can I Save Data?

Get a Knoppix CD. It's a live CD that will allow you to boot your computer into Knoppix (a version of Linux) and copy your files where ever you would like, ie: another hard drive, USB storage media, whatever.

In order to boot into Knoppix, make sure that your computer's boot priority has your CD drive ahead of your hard drive. After that, your data should be safe.

hey all i would appreciate the time if you looked into this matter.

i was using window's harddrive repair function, as my computer was starting to crash frequently. The window repair function hung at 47% at the 4th step, so i shut it off.

Now windows can no longer start, not even in safe mode. Upon loading, the computer will reboot itself.
i know there's some serious harddrive issues, this 110 gig seagate hdd had to be sent in before. I will most likely just transfer the data and start anew if no one has any suggestions.

any advice would be appreciated.
 

A:win xp hdd repair crashed: windows now in infinite loop

Welcome to TSG....

If this repair function that you were doing is a repair-installation of Windows then exiting out is a big mistake since the process will want to keep going until finished. I would suggest to put the windows install disk back in the drive and follow the prompts and finish the installation.

If this is not available then you might have to remove the hard drive from this computer and install it into another computer as a slave drive and manually backup any important data to another media like CD-R's, DVD or thumb drive and then return it to this computer and do a clean installation of Windows with a format.

Hello Before I begin to explain my problem I wanted to mention that I am essentially an average user without a significant background in diagnosing computer problems I have attempted to scour the web for solutions to my problems but the problems themselves have changed often enough that I am completely lost at this point repair Windows available endless CDs startup 7 no loop, I am hopeful that someone on this forum will be able to guide me to resolution even if that doesn't mean I end up with a fully operational system Quick background I bought my Windows 7 endless startup repair loop, no CDs available computer Dell Latitude D Intel Centrino Duo processor Windows 7 endless startup repair loop, no CDs available used from a fellow who refurbished older machines as a hobby He sold it to me running Windows I cannot recall which version it was but I think it was home or home premium pretty sure it was bit He did not provide me with a copy of any software It has been almost completely problem free until about weeks ago That day when I turned the computer on it took something like minutes to boot and windows was very slow delayed in processing the simplest commands I ran a full virus scan a malware scan disc cleanup and defragmenter and no problems were found I learned about sfc scannow and every time I ran it it found problems it couldn't fix I ran checkdisc several times as well and it was always finding bad clusters and repairing them The computer's performance improved incrementally but it kept trying to download and install the same updates over and over unsuccessfully which slowed things down so I turned off the automatic updater and at last it operated like normal again except that I would occasionally get error messages saying windows couldn't find MSVCR dll A day or two later the computer entered its current state of non functionality Now When I press the power button the Dell startup screen appears as usual but it presents me with the choice to run startup repair or start windows normally If I run startup repair when it's finished it restarts and sends me back to the aforementioned choice If I attempt to start windows it restarts and sends me back to the choice If I F and attempt safe mode it restarts and sends me back to the choice I attempted to create the AVG USB rescue disc and was able to boot the computer with it but the tool was useless as it didn't recognize the hard drive but could only scan or otherwise interact with the USB drive itself I'm prepared to accept the possibility that my computer is a total loss as disappointing as that may be but I would like to try to save it if there's hope I have reached the end of my diagnostic powers and so submit myself to the wisdom of this forum

If defective, replace it then reinstall Windows 7. Is there a COA sticker on the computer with the Windows 7 install key? You will need that to reinstall.

A:Windows 8.1 stuck in repair loop (2nd time)

It sounds hardware related.

Have you tried going into Safe Mode?

I built a new PC the other day and I have terrible problems. I was about to return my board back to the shop because I thought that it was my SSD that was causing the issue.

It was just going blank after the POST screen.

After trawling around the net, I stumbled across a similar problem.

That person found that their PCI GPU was conflicting with their CPU's GPU, and the fix was to remove the PCI GPU, boot into Windows, update everything and then re-install the PCI GPU.

His post saved me a great deal of problems. I could have been sending my board, and all the components back for testing.

Things like this can catch anyone out, and they don't have a rationale answer.

Start off by installing known safe components and getting the machine to work. Then introduce the other components to see what effect they have.

These things are never easy.

A:Stuck on Windows 7 Start Up repair loop

hello and to bleepingcomputer! A corrupt MFT could mean that the drive is bad, question for you is do you have any data on the drive that you would need to recover? If yes, we'll need to use a data recovery software to try and get data from the drive, if not we should run a hardware diagnostic to check if the drive is done or not. Create a cd/dvd on a working computer and Run a 'long test' with Seagate tools for dos using the below instruction
 
1. For writing it to a CD/DVD, follow this tutorial: Burn Disc Image - ISO or IMG file2. For writing it to an USB pen drive, the easy way is to use Win32 Disk Imager | Free Development software downloads at SourceForge.net
 

   Note
The downloaded ISO will not be written to the USB Pen Drive as it is. You need to alter the .iso file a bit to make it writable. Very little job is involved. Download or install either 7-Zip (free) or WinRAR (not free).
Extract the downloaded .iso file.
Rename the SeaTools.ima to SeaTools.img.
Burn the SeaTools.img file using Win32 Disk Imager
3. Download and double click to execute it. Select teh USB device, and browse for the renamed .img image.

4. Double click on the image, when found.

5. Click on Write.

6. A Confirm Overwrite message will appear. Click yes.

7. See the progress bar for a few seconds and the image is written and ready to boot from.PART - II: Booting from Seatools for DOS1. Now it is to boot from the CD/DVD or USB. You may do it using two alternative ways.
Enter into the BISO and change the BOOT order to CD (or USB) to first.
Use the BIOS Boot Menu Key to get the list of all possible devices to boot from. Select the CD (or USB) by using the scroll arrow keys and enter.
2. When on the GUI, at first a warning message will appear. Accept it by clicking on "I Accept".

Part - 3: Testing
There are three types of tests.
Short Test;
Long Test; and
Acoustic Test.

For most of the cases, Short tests are enough. But if Short tests detect problems, Long tests are suggested.

   Information
Long test has a mechanism to recover/repair some disc errors like BAD sectors. But the recovery/repair options work only for Seagate brand HDDs.

PART - IV: Results
Test results are of two types, in general.
Passed; and
Failed with errors; which may yield two possible alternative ultimate outcomes.
Passed after repair
Failed after repair

1. If passed, its all good.

2. If the test result a failure, with bad sectors etc, it will suggest you to have a warranty replacement, with a supplied test code.

Click on "Done". It will supply you some options to repair the failures.

You need to opt for "Repair this one and all remaining".2.(a) If repairs are successful, it will show a result as passed after repair. It is good, too.

2.( But if the repair is unsuccessful, then there is no way but try to back up your data and replace the disc.

Hello,
I have a Toshiba,  I upgraded to windows about a month ago.
I am now getting the Automatic repair loop.  I let the laptop battery drain.  I get to the Gui interface Toshiba setup utility window.  From here I can change the boot order.  I changed it to USB first, and  I have tried to boot
from USB.  I get to the windows set up menu, but after a few seconds the Automatic repair loop kicks in AGAIN.  I can not complete the install. How do I turn off Automatic repair loop so I can finish install?

I have had this loop for 4-5 hours now, and I have not found any fix for it. I am using build 10240. I have tried reverting back to windows 7, and that failed. Tried start-up repair, that failed. Tried system restore and image recovery, those failed too. Even resetting my pc has failed. I have tried cmd commands, and those also failed. I have upgraded to windows 10 via online from Windows 7, and I do not have a disk or another computer to work with. Nothing has even caused this issue. I just booted my pc like any other day and I was sent into this loop. I have a Gigabyte USB 3.0 powered motherboard.

A:Windows 10 preparing automatic repair loop

Welcome to Ten Forums. If you still have the Win 7 product key and aren't worried about losing your data here is a link to create Win 7 install media on the sister site Seven Forums. http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...sc-create.html . Then just do a clean install, but then you totally start over with nothing leftover. The other choice is to create Win 10 media and try to repair your installation from there. You might have a better chance at repairing it using bootable media. Here is a link from the tutorial section Windows 10 ISO Download . Here is a link for a repair install / inplace upgrade. Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade . This might not work for you, but maybe you can get back to a stable situation.

I had a power failure yesterday and I have been unable to restart my Windows. It is stuck at the startup repair or "start windows normally". Neither options works and it keeps coming back to this screen.

Unable to to start in safe mode or restart in last good configuration.

Did some research and got to the "system recovery option" by pressing F8. I don't have a boot CD or original windows installation CD. "System restore" didn't work.

I then followed the following tutorial by going to "command prompt". See link below. I was able to follow the instructions exactly but the restart still didn't work. Keeps going back to the loop.

Any help is is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

Startup Repair Infinite Loop Recovery

A:Windows 7, stuck in windows startup repair loop after power failure

Hello Hao99 and welcome to the forums. First, please go into BIOS and look at your boot options and make sure your hard drive is there. If it is seen there, you can recover your personal files using Copy/Paste from the recovery console Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console

The Infinite loop recovery tutorial is usually the last thing before a clean install. But, this tutorial lists everything that can be done for a failure to boot. Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

I hope this helps you some. If you have any questions I will try to help.
