Win7 BSOD on boot after losing power/Windows Updates

Q: Win7 BSOD on boot after losing power/Windows Updates

So my brother received boot power/Windows after losing on Updates Win7 BSOD the new PC I built for him booted it up and I connected via TeamViewer and showed him his way around Then in the process of unplugging his printer from the USB port on the back he somehow managed Win7 BSOD on boot after losing power/Windows Updates to knock the power lead killing the power Since then he's been unable to boot into Windows just getting a BSOD every time after the quot Windows failed to shutdown properly quot screen and selecting quot Boot normally quot Strangely the only other option on this screen is Repair Windows no Safe mode or Last Known Good Config Luckily I've got a Win Win7 BSOD on boot after losing power/Windows Updates x VHD on there which he can boot into I got him to remove the Nebula tuner PCI card as that had caused some issues before but I thought I'd sorted them and it was working fine before I sent it to him and then I used the VHD to load the Win x Hive in regedit and set the two Nebula drivers to Start to disable them Still BSOD I looked in the Win x Windows Minidump folder whilst booted to the VHD and there wasn't any files dated today so there's no help there I also used BootICE to add another entry to the Windows boot menu Win Safe set in BootICE to Safe mode but selecting this just gave him a BSOD as well However it did at least produce the Safe Mode Last Known Good Config etc Win7 BSOD on boot after losing power/Windows Updates options but Safe Mode with Networking and Last Known Good both still just result in the BSOD He managed to boot it with Safe Mode without networking but obviously that doesn't allow me to connect via TeamViewer to sort anything out When he booted into this mode it said it was reverting some updates It had installed about Windows Updates some time before the power got cut but we hadn't had a chance to reboot so they may have not been installed fully and maybe that's why it reverted them I'm not sure I've got a EaseUS ToDo Backup System Image that he could revert to I added the Boot disk to the grub dos menu but that's the nuclear option as I think I made a few changes since making that and it will be tricky to talk him through using that as I won't be able to connect to his machine to do it for him so I'd rather try and fix the problem if at all possible so if anyone can help I'd be very grateful

Preferred Solution: Win7 BSOD on boot after losing power/Windows Updates

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.)

A: Win7 BSOD on boot after losing power/Windows Updates

Tried some more things:

1. Selected Startup Repair instead of Boot Normally (by accident, my brother was too slow to change it, before then it had defaulted to Boot Normally every time anyway, so it took him by surprise). Anyway, I didn't want to interrupt it if it was doing something, so we let it run but although it said it had identified some problems and was fixing them, after about 10mins it said it had failed and showed

Startup Repair offline

Problem Signature 02 6.1.7600.16385

05 Auto failover

07 0x7e

2. Booted into Safe Mode (without networking) again and uninstalled KB2859537 as this article suggests it can cause BSOD on boot http://news.softpedia.com/news/Microsoft-KB2859537-Update-Causes-BSOD-on-Windows-7-375659.shtml I'm not sure this was one of the updates that was applied today before it started BSOD, as that article's dated 13 August so I think I'd probably already installed that and it hadn't caused any problems but it seemed worth a shot. It didn't help though.

3. Did a clean boot as per http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929135 but that still resulted in the BSOD.

4. Booted into Safe Mode (without networking) again, went into Device Manager and disabled the onboard Qualcomm Atheros NIC (as it boots in Safe Mode but not in Safe Mode with Networking it seemed worth trying) but that still BSOD as well.

Every time it boots into Safe Mode (without networking), it says "Failed to configure Windows Updates. Reverting" and the first time after uninstalling that update, it said it had to reboot and did so automatically. After that, it still shows that each time but then continues to the desktop. It said that the first time we booted in this mode earlier today as well, before I tried uninstalling that update, but without forcing a reboot.

System Started getting BSOD's after a windows update with reference to the ntoskrnl.exe in every crash. I just replaced the RAM today thinking it was possibly a memory issue, but to no avail, I'm still getting frequent BSOD's. I ran an /FS SCANNOW and there were no integrity problems, as well as a chkdisk that also came up empty. Any help is greatly appreciated.

they aren't concise about a single driver.
Now, if the RAM is brand new I would hold off on testing it and focusing on Driver Verifier for now.
Please enable Driver Verifier.

   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.
If you cannot boot in Safe mode too, do a System Restore to a point you made earlier.




Please enable driver verifier following this TUTORIAL | But using these settings:





Quote:

Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation", "Force Pending I/O Requests", "IRP Logging" and click "Next"
Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft, Unknown, or Macrovision and click "Next"
Select "Finish" on the next page.



Post back with a couple of DV enabled crashes .

Please make sure your system is configured for Small Memory Dumps Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD

Open a elevated command prompt ( click start, type cmd in the search box, right click on the cmd entry and select run as administrator) in the black box that opens, copy/paste sfc /scannow. If you decide to type it, notice the space between the sfc and the /. It is a system file checker which will scan your system files and attempt to correct any missing or corrupt files. What we want are the results to say windows found no integrity violations. If it says files were found but could not be repaired, close the box, reboot and run it again, after opening the administrative command prompt. You may have to reboot and run it three times for it to repair all system files. If it can't repair them after 3 reboots, let us know.

I have a Lenovo W530 that's about a year old and I've been experiencing some random shutdowns. I've checked the event log to see if anything happened at the time of shutdown, however there is nothing. No minidump, no bsod. The laptop acts as if someone has pulled the battery out. (I tried wiggling the battery to reproduce the shutdown with no avail. I'm wondering if it's hardware related (RAM, Power supply?) I the windows memory test (the one you can do before you start windows) and it came back with no errors.

Anything else I could try to figure out what the problem is?

Hi folks I have had some strange action on my PC in the last few days First of all I was notified of updates waiting to be installed so I installed them and passed but one failed I brought up the lone update and tried to fiddle around in the window hoping I could get it to instal again but the monitor screen flickered and that update went off the screen At the same time I lost Mozilla firefox and another app called System Mechanic plus worst of all I lost Internet Explorer I checked in Program files and there were some files in there to do with I E but nothing to let me re-instal it Eventually I decided to do a restore of the system but before that I went into Windows Updates and I found that all my my previous updates had disappeared as well and all that was left were the two updates that had originally Windows Updates Losing updated OK but the one Losing Windows Updates that had failed was not shown About weeks ago I was having trouble with update installation they were failing so I found a tech firm on the internet who said they would fix the problem for I let them go ahead so having taken control of my computer it took them days to supposedly fix the problem I was watching the process and I thought it looked kosher so I paid them Now that I have had some more updates to instal I find that the problem is still there I would greatly appreciate it if some one could make some suggestions as to what I can do with this problem also the problem of the lost updates of which the best part of them passed and the remainder failed Sorry for the long screed I did a restore of the system and I got I E back System Mechanic is on a disc Best regards in anticipation of a favourable reply jonni

A:Losing Windows Updates

 Make and model of your computer?  I think the first thing I'd do would be to back up any data I didn't want to lose.  Next I'd be sure I have the discs needed to restore to factory settings.  Usually this is documented in your user guide which is on your hard drive most of the time.
 After the above, I'd download Malwarebytes from here
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/malwarebytes-anti-malware/ , get it up to date, then boot to Safe Mode.  Then do a full system scan with it and your antivirus.  There're other possible tools if that doesn't fix the problem, but this is a good start.
 
Good luck.

System hardware is old but scores around 4.0 in the W7 compatibility whichis fine as it's just a basic office machine.



Where do we start.

1-Zone alarm is causing these crashes. remove it and replace with the built in win 7 driver.

2-Eset remove it and replace with Microsoft Security essentials

3-Old drivers needing updating

Beyond that, please run Verifier with these settings:





Quote:
Using Driver Verifier is an iffy proposition. Most times it'll crash and it'll tell you what the driver is. But sometimes it'll crash and won't tell you the driver. Other times it'll crash before you can log in to Windows. If you can't get to Safe Mode, then you'll have to resort to offline editing of the registry to disable Driver Verifier.

So, I'd suggest that you first backup your stuff and then make sure you've got access to another computer so you can contact us if problems arise. Then make a System Restore point (so you can restore the system using the Vista/Win7 Startup Repair feature).

Then, here's the procedure:
- Go to Start and type in "verifier" (without the quotes) and press Enter
- Select "Create custom settings (for code developers)" and click "Next"
- Select "Select individual settings from a full list" and click "Next"
- Select everything EXCEPT FOR "Low Resource Simulation" and click "Next"
NOTE: You can use Low Resource Simulation if you'd like. From my limited experimentation it makes the BSOD's come faster.
- Select "Select driver names from a list" and click "Next"
Then select all drivers NOT provided by Microsoft and click "Next"
- Select "Finish" on the next page.

I was using my computer yesterday when the power in my house tripped out.
After getting the power back on, I restarted my computer. It said, 'starting windows' and I get the boot animation. After a while the screen goes black and then the brighter black (just before the mouse pointer and then the login screen appears) and then, nothing, and my monitor says 'no signal.' I've tried the boot repair and it said the computer could not boot last time (correct), then it tried to automatic repair, which it could not do.

I tried a boot repair a second time and it said it could not find any errors, but the system will still not boot (same original problem)

Any pointers would be most appreciated.

Thanks.

I use a specific driver for Rainbow Six Siege as the game is broken for me but oh look Windows don't care I use the store to play Gears or Forza however disabling these updates then kills that off as they're stupidly forced online play and require the latest update like the anniversary update which breaks my mic and Forced updates kills Windows 10 for me, how do I disable it without losing access to the Store? sound drivers I just want to be able to turn automatic updates off and manually install them myself

I have looked through my event viewer and found several instances of a Kernel-Power error occurring in the last five months. Today it happened twice with a BSOD. I have not made any hardware changes recently. I have a GA-P35-DS3L mobo, E8400, 275GTX vid card, and 400W PSU, and I have my computer hooked up to a UPS. Several hours before the first BSOD I updated my graphics drivers. Is it likely that this is a software error, and a clean install of Windows 7 will fix it?

Thanks for your help in advance.

P.S. Just updated with files

A:BSOD - Win7 - Kernel-Power

Hi friend and welcome to SF

There are 2 things that I can see from the minidump files:
First thing, most obvious, is your xusb21.sys, which caused BSODs, it belong to XBox USB wireless controller, please download and install fresh copy of it.

Beside that, I see the exception code ffffffc000005, that can suggest memory corruption, I would download third party called memtest86, burn it to CD using Iso recorder and let it run for at least 7 passess (this is less likely but I would like you to try if you have time)
http://www.carrona.org/memdiag.html

Also, virtual cd program such as Deamon tool or Alcohol 120% are notorious for causing BSODs, it would be good if you can remove them completely, then use "remove" option from this program to remove sptd.sys, used by those virtual cd program:

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.
To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

The problem:

First installed Windows 7 Proff 64-bit on this machine last monday after installing updates / drivers etc I began to recieve intermitent BSODs then began the trouble shooting. Tested memory with memtest89+ passed manually set voltages / timings ran memtest89+ again passed. Started driver verifier etc BSODs stopped. Shut down pc went to bed. Woke up turned on PC and was greeted with the "windows was unable to start up" screen. Rebooted PC tried to start it in safe-mode, couldn't would fail to boot. Tried booting with low res graphics... couldn't. Eventually I decided to do a system restore it finished and booted fine and was stable all day. Next morning I turn on my pc and I am greeted with windows boot error screen again. Getting fed up and figuring I don't have much on the machine anyway I reformat and reinstall windows 7. Wary of more errors I decide to test the drivers by installing them booting down for a bit then starting up again and then going into system restore to get rid of them so I have a clean enviroment for the next set. Finally I come to Ati's CCC 10.2 install it shut down reboot and I'm greeted with a blank screen login screen. At this point I am able to login but all that shows is a scaled down version of my wallpaper. No icons, no taskbar, nada. I can interact with the system ie start up task manager etc even though I still only see a blank wallpaper. Started going back through old drivers figuring that this was an error with ati's newest one. Went back as far as CCC 9.1 and the same thing happened. During all of these I was only able to successfully boot into safe mode. Eventually I decide to try booting in low res mode and walla it worked I was able to boot into windows and turn up my resolution to the max. However, this morning my PC booted back up into windows error screen. It boots gets to the windows icon flash screen and crashes / reboots. I cannot get into safe mode. The only thing that works is to run system restore and (luckily i made a restore point before shutting down last night) select the latest restore point.

Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

I still suspect video, or driver. Are you over clocking cpu, or gpu? Now that you have restored can you safe boot? If so does driver show as working in device manager?

I have been receiving random reboots and BSODs on a brand new Dell Studio XPS. Failure is either IRQ LESS OR EQUAL BSOD or kernel power reboot with no BSOD and only x0 info.

Core i7-980X Extreme(12MB L2 Cache, 3.33GHz)
24GB DDR3 SDRAM at 1333MHz
ATI Radeon HD 5870 1GB GDDR5

Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit, English

In the USB ports:
Pentax DS Mobile 600 Scanner
Wacom Cintiq 12wx
Logitech Unifying Receiver to run Performax MX Mouse and K800 Wireless Keyboard

The memory all came with the system. Fan temps are fine. Virtual devices are all part of LogMeIn. I have tried disabling some services and non-essential drivers to see if it help, per suggestions from other forums - still rebooting and locking.

I am attaching the Windows7_Vista_jcgriff2 directory and the perfmon report. I believe driver verifier was running to help support. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

A:BSOD Kernel Power and IRQL Not Equal Win7 64bit

Did you deliberately disable these devices? If so, why?

Your installation of LogMeIn is outdated, please uninstall it for the duration of the testing.

The Driver Verifier enabled memory dump blames a Windows file. Depending on the settings that you chose, this could be a 3rd party driver, a Microsoft/Windows driver, or a hardware problem.

What settings did you use for Driver Verifier?

"It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception".

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU.

Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference.

If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

I would download cpu-z and gpu-z (both free) and keep an eye on the video temps Let us know if you need help STOP 0x116: VIDEO_TDR_ERROR troubleshooting

Can I simply use the integrate option to slipstream all of the files I downloaded with the downloader? There are a mix of .exe and .msu files. I read that some updates are prerequisite for others, so will they be installed in the correct order of I slipstream them all into the same Win7 .iso file?

It seems, that it was a memory failure. I took one pair of the modules out --> absolutely no boot (so the bad one(s) were left in.)

It gets to the Starting Windows message and the windows logo, but then it stops, and after a minute or so, it restarts. I tried using the Windows Startup Repair Tool from the DVD, but when I click "Repair Windows" it changes to an empty screen, and stops. I can move the mouse, but nothing happens for 20 minutes. Same thing when clicking the Install now button. I took it apart, but nothing seems to be broken, everything fits in its place. I believe it is the HDD, but I'm not certain.

Hello,

When booting or trying to repair, I get Unmountable_boot_volume BSODs.

Before that:
- blue screens caused by defective RAM, so i kept the only running module in my laptop
- then very slow boot (up to 20 min) and windows sessions
- then BSOD mentioning Iastor.sys
- and now Unmountable_boot_volume when trying to boot or repair startup.

I have Hiren and WinRE (but no Win7 installation disc), so I tried various things, like fixing MBR but it tells me he can't find a system volume, repairing with WinRe but, of course, no system partition is listed in the box.

I also have setup my HDD to IDE instead of AHCI in the BIOS.

At this point, what should I do?

Thanks

A:Unmountable boot volume BSOD - Win7.64

Run Checkdisk and the manufacturer's hard disk diagnostic utility. If the drive is good, try Minitool Partition Wizard (free).

I have two Win machines and both started doing this Tuesday One is my main desktop gaming machine the other is a mix of a Media Center and home server They re both setup different as to how and when they update On my desktop I have it set to notify me of updates which it stopped doing months ago and generally manually install them Wednesday or Thursday to make sure everything goes OK before the other machine gets them The other machine installs them automatically on Sunday When I turned on my desktop this past Wednesday the svchost exe process that handles Windows Update started eating up one whole updates. [Win7] Tuesday's Update eating Windows since constantly CPU core of CPU which it usually does when it checks for updates It generally stops after a few minutes but three hours later it was still going I remote logged into my other [Win7] Windows Update constantly eating CPU since Tuesday's updates. machine and it too had the svchost exe process going and it wasn t even scheduled to update On my desktop I went through the steps to reset Windows update by following this guide Once I restarted it went back to chewing up CPU time I opened the Windows Update and tried to install the updates but it sat there showing downloading updates I just left it running while I had to go out and do some errands I came back about - hours later and it was [Win7] Windows Update constantly eating CPU since Tuesday's updates. still sitting at downloading updates and eating up CPU time While I was searching for ways to fix it around an hour later it finally began to download the updates and installed them and so far it seems to be fine The CPU eating on the other machine also finally stopped about the same time Today though when I remote logged into the other machine svchost exe was going at it again This machine runs and I don t need it running up my electricity bill because of Windows Update so I [Win7] Windows Update constantly eating CPU since Tuesday's updates. decided to manually install the updates rather wait for it to do it Sunday Just like on my desktop when I started the update it sat at downloading for hours before finally installing them My desktop does not have any of the Win updates installed The other machine does but I have made the registry change to disable OS updates and disabled the GWX tasks in task manager because it runs Windows Media Center for recording TV and I don t want it updating Is anyone else having this problem I haven t seen any complaints anywhere about this past Tuesday s Windows Update causing problems but it seems odd that it happened on both of my Win machines So far after installing the updates the CPU consumption stopped but I don t want Windows Update doing this every month eating up CPU time until I manually install the updates and taking hours to update nbsp

A:[Win7] Windows Update constantly eating CPU since Tuesday's updates.

Microsoft hasn't been doing anything but fucking up Windows Update for Windows 7 users (and 8/8.1 users to lesser degrees) in a pretty blatant attempt to push people into giving up on Windows 7 (because they want you to believe it's basically obsolete and useless now which of course is an absolute lie) by making it so frustrating to use, especially when it comes to being updated with the latest security patches and whatever. For the moment there's realistically nothing you as an end user can do except "take it like a man" I suppose, not sure how else to put it delicately.

I think it's pretty sad what they're doing to loyal Windows users, but they have their own very different agenda now with Windows 10 and the rest of us that simply have no use for that operating system are being lambasted constantly with the crap they're putting us through just to keep Windows 7 updated - I mean, they state they'll support it till 2020 but I have to wonder just how many people have jumped ship to Windows 10 so far because they're simply ignorant of what's actually going on with the crap that Microsoft is pulling.

I haven't personally seen any issues with my machine but it has none of the "infected" (which is as good a word as any considering) Windows Updates which will try to get Windows 10 installed or at least force some notifications on the end user to get Windows 10 installed at some point. I take it upon myself to ensure that I check out each update they post either at the Knowledge Base itself or I'll check forums where people are doing a lot more research into this stuff and see what appears to be "safe" to install and what is best avoided like the plague.

Unfortunately, I'm in the minuscule minority in that respect, even around here at this forum where a lot of people are like me (disclaimer: assumption incoming): technologically adept and on top of things with respect to all this Windows Update bullshit.

Sad to say there's really not much you can do but hope enough people complain about the svchost.exe issue that another hotfix/update is posted soon to address yet another thing Microsoft has broken pretty much on purpose and according to plan.

I did a clean install yesterday for a client and here are the only updates I installed for him after the install and before I even got online with that machine (these were downloaded from the KB or from the Catalog manually and saved for offline installation):

That's it, just those, and with those Windows Update seems to not hang for really long periods of time, no more than about 10 minutes at most when checking for updates that first time after a clean install. I can't say if they'll affect a current install that might have a bunch of other updates already going, but that's what I've found to be useful to alleviate some of the ridiculous delays.

A:Windows Update in Win7 is stuck in a loop trying to search for updates

I would say if the system has been checked by others as per your last original post and stated clean.
 
Then i see you say that Windows Update - stalls ? ... { You could check Task Manager - Running Tasks - and if WU is running ok.
Does this mean the PC is unresponsive or just Updates taking to long ? { No % Increase }.
 
I have had PCs take over 10 hours to process and then download.
 
Hopefully all your Services are still correctly Set ? , i would run the Windows Update over night , the longer the better , and see if it can actually complete.
 
This has been an issue for quite sometime after intro of Win10 , and for Win 7 machines to be last inline and  ess of a priorty over 10.

Hi,

I've got a Win 7 pro 64 bit SP1 machine on a domain, pointing to a local WSUS server which has stopped installing updates. The update gets to the point in the progress bar where it should be installed but then returns failed with 80070643 & 80071A91 error codes. Currently there are 45 updates outstanding. All other machines on the domain receive and apply updates successfully.

If I try to apply updates 1 by 1, I get a mixture of the errors already stated depending on the update i'm applying.

I've run chkdsk & sfc /scannow.

SURT has been run.

Updates still coming back with the same error.

CBS log is 185Mb, so even zipped to large to attach, CheckSUR is reporting no errors detected.

Anti-Virus is: Sophos Endpoint 10.3

If anyone can help it would be massively appreciated!

Thanks,
Jack

I wanted to set up Ubuntu on my computer and followed the instructions in the first answer to this thread dual boot - How to install Ubuntu alongside Windows - Ask Ubuntu As instructed I created a logical partition using EaseUS software I did this on my H drive a hard disk drive whereas Windows was installed on C and SSD After a mandatory reboot for the new partition changes I did not immediately go to install Ubuntu although I had Live USB to do so - Ubuntu to Dual Wanted Won't Boot Boot and Win7 Anymore Windows Instead if I remember properly I booted into Windows to make sure everything was Wanted to Dual Boot Win7 and Ubuntu - Windows Won't Boot Anymore OK but only to find out that some quot Windows could not boot properly quot giving me the option to 'Launch Startup Repair' - which I did but to no avail All it did was reported that some system files were missing or corrupt I then installed Ubuntu on a third drive because I still needed it to perform some benchmarking I did this using the 'install alongside windows ' option But now that I don't need Ubuntu anymore all I am interested in is getting back to Windows while keeping all the files and programs intact How should I go about fixing this Delete the logical partition on the other drive I also have that Windows installation CD and I'm thinking its repair options could be useful - but not having a whole lot of self-confidence I don't know what steps exactly to take to preserve my files Any help is greatly appreciated Edit I booted from the Windows installation disk just to see the options available and when selecting the 'Repair Windows' option I got a message saying quot this version of system recovery options is not compatible with the version of Windows you are trying to repair Try using a recovery disc that is compatible with this version of Windows quot The CD is definitely matching the version of windows I want to install but a problem might me that my Windows and the CD are the OEM versions which I've read can't be used to perform upgrades

A:After Win7 BSOD i cant access bios or boot the system

It appears that truecrypt caused the crash. I don't use encryption software, so I can't recommend any solutions (other than getting rid of the encryption software).

Also, please remove or update these older drivers that were loaded at the time of the crash. Don't use Windows Update or the Update drivers function of Device Manager.
Please use the following instructions to locate the most currently available drivers to replace the one's that you uninstall OR remove:

How To Find Drivers:
- I have listed links to most of the drivers in the code box below. Please use the links there to see what info I've found about those drivers.
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).

Last week I formatted my hard drive and did a clean install of Win7.
Windows update found 99 updates, eventually these were all installed.
No progs were loaded at this time. More than half have failed; five pages full on a 22" monitor. Many are 'important'. jpeg shows about 1/5 of the failures.

I have uninstalled one and reinstalled and it worked, but it was slow. How can I force a large quantity of updates to reinstall?

Thank you!

A:Win7 32x, format & reload, win updates 60% failing (50+ updates)

Welcome to the Forum.

When doing that amount of Updates it is always better to do just a few at a time as there are some that need a reboot to finish installing properly, especially the .net ones.

If you could fill in your System Specs so the experts know just what machine you have it will make things a lot easier for them to help you with any problems, don't forget we can't see your machine so have no idea what you are using. There can often be differences between using a laptop to a desktop plus knowing what security software you use can help.

Again Welcome to the forum and I hope you can get the help you need.

I built a new computer, got a new 2tb hdd and a new win7 license . It's installed.

In a few months, when I can afford it, I'll get a SSD and I would want to change my windows installation there and keep the hdd for data storage only.

How do you do this with Win7 and the activation process? How do I migrate my license?
Can I inactivate my license, install in new hdd, and reactivate in the new SSD? How?

thanks

Quote:

Changing HDD or re-installing Windows won't void your license. You can either perform a clean install or a migration.

Clean install:

Simply install Windows to the SSD, activate it and then format the old HDD. You will also need to re-install all applications and all updates.

Migration :

You can use the trial version of "Paragon Backup and Recovery Home" to migrate the installed OS to SSD. All the installed apps and activation will be preserved.

Solved How to Migrate OS to new Hard disk.

Above example is originally written for "8" but the same applies to "7".
Whether you prefer a clean install or migration, make sure not to run any kind of disk defragmentation programs. Doing so will affect both performance and durability of a SSD. Also install the latest "Chipset" driver to improve SSD compatibility.

Hello,

I have a laptop with nVidia GeForce 8400M GS on it, and I'm running Windows 7 with the 258.96 video driver.

My system is working great and I have vSync in both Desktop and Games, but when I overclock my Graphic Card and run a Game or any 3D Application, I lose vSync after reboot, and the only way I found to get it back is by reinstalling the nVidia Driver...

If someone have any idea about this problem, I will be very glad to hear it..

Notes:
- In nVidia control panel / 3D Application settings: I have vSync (Force ON).
- I haven't this problem in Vista and XP.
- I had this problem even with New/Old Drivers.
- I'm overclocking with an nVidia Utility and my overclock frequencies are working great in Vista/XP.

Thanks in advance
And sorry for my bad english.

A:Losing vSync after running 3D App. in Win7

Hello there, xZinou.

There's a couple of things you can try:

1) don't overclock a laptop's video card, and specially a 8400M GS.
2) install latest drivers for your card (260.99)
3) don't force vsync on on the control panel, unless you're experience screen flickers, if you don't, then manage vsync individually on the application/game/program you're using.

Try those and report back, please

EDIT: after you uninstall your current drivers, please run Driver Sweeper to delete leftovers from the previous installation, that will decrease the possibility of having an issue when installing newer drivers!

Okay, so here's the deal.

I have been using the Windows 7 RC Build 7100.

Today I got a message saying my OS would expire in 14 days and that i needed to upgrade.

I know the only way to upgrade is to clean install.

I was wondering if there was any way for me to retain my files without backing up.

Possibly by partitioning my drive and installing on the blank partition? Then could i read my data/installs from the other partition?

I also have a 500 gig drive that i do not use.

I could use that as well.

Advanced Thanks,

John

A:Upgrade Win7 without losing files?

You've waited a little late in the game, but anyhow...What should I do if I'm running the Release Candidate (RC) version of Windows 7?If you want, you could potentially create another partition, and copy your data (documents, music, photos, etc.) to this new partition (you will have to reinstall all your programs, you can't save them as is). Then, after a clean install of whatever operating system you choose (you didn't say, so I can only assume that you will buy the full Windows 7), you can simply copy the files back. Just be careful during the clean installation to not mess with your new data partition.I personally would go with an external source of backup (external hard drive, etc.), but it is possible to do it with the same drive by just copying your data to a separate partition, then copying back after the install.Does that make sense?

I have a new hp pavilion laptop with Win pre-installed with no cd for windows I was advised to make a set of recovery disks first thing before changing anything else in windows settings which I did Then I partitioned my HD GB into additional logical drives in addition to the main C windows drive and another pre-created Recovery drive I store all my data media on those additional logical drives leaving C mainly for windows only and everything working fine so far I need to know whenever I need to re-install windows if any problems arise how to do that without deleting my data on the logical drives i losing data? Installing without win7 would only need to format C and re-install windows on it will that be possible with the recovery disks I used to do that with my previous PC using windows XP without the need to backup all my data on the other drives every time I do a re-install is that possible with windows Need your opinions

A:Installing win7 without losing data?

If you want to use the Recovery Partition to reinstsall, which also reinstalls all the corrupting bloatware, then it MIGHT give you the option to reinstall only to the C: drive. If not, you'll need to back up your data - which you should do anyway at all times.

You can test the recovery to see if it allows you to reinstall just to C: Just cancel out after you see.

Most tech enthusiasts find a copy of the OS in their version so they can clean reinstall without bloatware. Until then you need to make a repair CD in case Windows won't boot, so you can repair it.

so, there was a problem with the bootup, and i popped in the windows 7 installation DVD, and repaired it(via system repair). all went well, i was able to get into windows. the "select which os to boot from" message popped up, so i disabled that and chose the wrong OS to be the default, the corrupted one [which is called "windows 7 home premium (recovered)]. i also, foolishly, set the timer to 0, so i can't even choose the "other" windows 7 os, the one that is not corrupt. also, bcedit does not work in DOS prompt. how can i get the default OS boot menu before bootup, again? thanks in advance

A:Need to select the default Windows 7 OS at boot, cannot boot into win7

Boot tapping F8 multiple times, let's say every half second. Do you see bootmenu? If so select to write OS! If succeeded in win7 run msconfig. There you can delete the old "corrupt" OS from the list and set the timeout to 10 seconds for example

Hi there...
We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:






Quote:
* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.


To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

How To Find Drivers:




Quote:
- search Google for the name of the driver
- compare the Google results with what's installed on your system to figure out which device/program it belongs to
- visit the web site of the manufacturer of the hardware/program to get the latest drivers (DON'T use Windows Update or the Update driver function of Device Manager).
- if there are difficulties in locating them, post back with questions and someone will try and help you locate the appropriate program.

I recently clean-installed Win 7 Pro 64, followed by Ubuntu 14.10, both on an SSD(EFI) and set up for dual-boot. Win User files are relocated to d: drive (a Highpoint RocketRAID5 drive.)

Windows seems to work fine, except when I sleep or hibernate it. Sleep initiates correctly, but on reawakening, it allows login then BSODs. Hibernate works about the same.

There were a couple of power outages in the days upto the trouble. So I of course checked for this.

Those power outages are the only unusual things happening in the near past. That's also why I did the "power drainage" drill with all cords removed.

Woke up this morning and turned on the machine, right after getting to the desktop the power at my place momentarily dropped and my pc rebooted. Now it get to a screen saying normal startup or startup repair options to select. I'm running x64 ult in a UEFI RAID 0 setup on two ssds. I dont have the same disk for my current os load but I did find one from a couple years ago but I'm not sure how to go about this repair. Tried sfc /scannow but it just says incompatible partition. Do I need to boot up with the UEFI cdrom?

I tried doing the UEFI cdrom but it says "this version of system recovery options is not compatible with the version of Windows you're trying to repair"

A:PC won't boot without BSOD after power outage.

We see nothing but problems with RAID here since Win7 release, then with UEFI it complicates it even more.

You do have SP1 installed correct? If so then try the latest Win7 installer provided in Steps 1 with tool to burn or write to disk or flash stick in Step 2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

Report back results of running Startup Repair. It should offer to automate System Restore but if not run it manually from System Recovery Options.

I'd also consider reinstalling to a single HD following the steps in tutorial above to assure a perfect install, with added steps here for UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums

Problems started earlier in the month when updating my NVidia drivers. Computer worked for the last few weeks but would get random display errors. I attempted to revert to previous drivers however it did not fix the problem. 2 days ago, computer started crashing and will now only boot in safemode. I attempted a restore prior to the NVidia install, but the restore point was not available for that time period.

I've also uninstalled/reinstalled the video card and windows automatically installs the drivers.

I uploaded the zip file per instructions.

HELP! While shutting down the computer, there was an option to install windows updates before shutting down and i clicked it. i switched off my monitor to let it install and shut down itself but my dad unplgged the monitor for some reason and i turned off the power accidently forgetting that the updates were being installed!

Now when i switch on the computer, it takes me to the startup options page and no matter which option i select, it ends up in a blue screen saying that a driver is attempting to write on a read-only memory. The updates may be installed incompletely so is there a way to delete the updates? HELP.

A:Accidently turned off power while installing windows updates.

Hi MrAtiF and welcome to Vista Forums

The reason why you are having problems is because some updates overwrite and patch system files. When this happens, you need to take particular heed about the warning not to turn off your machine whilst the updates are configured/installed. Should power be removed, then some of these files will be incomplete and in an uncertain state.

Have a look at this Tutorial: Advanced Boot Options

Try Last Known Good Configuration (advanced). If that doesn't work, try these options in order:
System Restore - How to
Startup Repair
Repair Install For Vista

If none of these work, or you can't even access them, then you might need to do a clean installation:

I see no reason to disable IPv6, it has never bothered my setup.
Have your checked to find all your adapters, under system, open ea one and make sure the "All this device to turnoff to save power" IS NOT CHECKED.

I'm hoping someone can help me diagnose what I'm pretty sure is a hardware issue, and maybe give me some estimates of repair costs. I have a hand-me-down Dell laptop that is running Windows XP and is relatively new. P III 700Mhz. When first power up, it appears to run fine, but after 10-30 minutes, it shuts down and becomes completely unrepsonsive. At first I thought it was a power cord issue, but even when the battery shows a 97% charge, the machine still unexpextedly shuts down. In addition, after time without use, it always seems to boot up properly. I figure it must be the power chord, the fan, the port for the power chord, or some combination of the three. Anyone have any way to figure out which, and/or cost estimates for replacement parts?

Hi,

For a while now I have been experiencing a strange problem. My laptop keeps changing the Windows Updates without my consent. I know this has been raised in the past but my problem is slightly different.

I prefer to choose "Check for updates but let me choose whether to download or install them", however periodically the settings change without my consent to "Never check for updates".

This is very frustrating as I am constantly having to keep an eye on this, and change the settings back to what they were in order to receive critical updates, or indeed any other update.

The laptop was bought new just under 12 months ago and came with Win7 Home Premium 64Bit pre-installed.

Has anyone else experienced this, or can anyone advise on a fix?

Many thanks for any help offered.

Regards

Paul

A:Win7 Updates changes settings to Never Check for Updates

First off IMHO constantly doing updates isn't always the best thing to do. MS is not infallible and sometimes puts out updates that cause problems.

If your system is running fine why bother doing updates all the time.

If you want all the updates then set it to check, download and install Auto. then you don't have to worry about it at all.

If the problem continues, the setting being changed to Never Check then more then likely you have some malware, of some type, on your system. Windows does not do that by itself. If anything it would change it to Always check, DL and install Auto, not the other way.

I am a sole account/user (home-based and non-network) with system administrator privileges, except this status is not recognized under Windows Update > Change Settings > Important Updates. The option of selecting automatic updating
and an installation frequency/time is grayed out.  How do I fix?  

A:Win7 Ultimate Sole User Administrator Privileges Not Recognized for Automatic Windows Updates

Hi KiDeb.
Did you have any changes prior this issue?
Could you confirm that Important Updates were installed before?
The possible solution could be this:
Hold WindowsKey + R 
Type: ?regedit?
Hit Enter

Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
Find AUOptions. 
Right Click Modify

You can change the values data from 1 through 5:
1. Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
2. Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them
3. Download updates but let me choose whether to install them
4. Install updates automatically / Never Check For Updates
5. Enable the option box to choose manually

If this doesn't help, you can try this method, but make sure you backup the registry files as you are doing this step on your own and I am not responsible for the possible issue -
Backup registry files in Windows 7
Click ?Start? button.
Select ?Run?.
Type ?regedit? without quotes in the Run window and hit Enter.

Navigate to this location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\WindowsUpdate\AU
In the right-pane, delete these two values ?AUOptions? and ?NoAutoUpdate?.

Then navigate to this location: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\WindowsUpdate
In the right-pane, delete the value ?DisableWindowsUpdateAccess?.
Restart the computer and then try to change the Auto Update Settings.

I have no problem networking the two operating systems and sharing folders and printers (use work not home on win7). BUT, the minute I open network and/or network sharing on the windows 7 computer I lose my internetconnection on both computers and have to go through a shut down of the w7 computer and unplug the cable modem and the router and restart everything. (The modem displays an internet connection.) Time Warner Aries Modem
Belkin G router

You can't get to shared folders without going through network. If you do you have to restart everything to get back internet connection.

Geforce 9600GT Video Card
Kingston 2 1g ram sticks Ram
e4600 2.4ghz dual cpu's Processor
Asus psgc-mx/1333 MoBo
XP Service Pack 3 OS
When ever I enter a graphics intensive program, such as a game like Counterstrike my monitor loses power, and my video card fan starts going much much faster, almost doubling or tripling the sound coming from my computer.

How ever this only happens about 80% of the time, there are sometimes when I can play games for days on end and my computer won't react to it. Then one day I may open a game and the issue sets in yet again.


I implanted the video card into a different computer and played games there and it worked perfectly fine. I was thinking it may be the power supply, but I wanted some more experienced advice from you guys.
I doubt it, but I was wondering also if it might be a software issue that is making me lose power.

A:Monitor losing power

What is your power supply? You might need to purchase a stronger PSU at least 500 watts.

Hiya, hopefully someone can help me - over the last few days my monitor keeps losing power and I have to unplug it for a while (20 mins or so) then plug it back in for it to work. Some days it happens lots, other days it doesn't happen at all. It's a Tiny LCD monitor (model: MAVG-17), 7 months old. PC was recently moved to a different room, but this had already happened a couple of times in the original location. Any ideas gratefully received! Thanks a lot.
 

A:Monitor keeps losing power

Hi and welcome. Is the monitor still under warranty per chance?

Sounds like you may have a defective monitor.

My computer has a Pentium II MMX 350 MHZ Processor. I know this because it is the first thing it says on the screen when I boot it up. This morning however, when I turned it on, it said Pentium II-175 MHZ. I shut down and rebooted and it was back to normal. What could have caused this? Is it a warning sign that my processor is about to die? The computer will be 5 years old this August.
 

A:We're losing power captain!

I don't think it is the cpu. The first thing I would suspect is the cmos battery. Have you ever changed it? If not there is a possibility it is getting weak.

I checked my My Computer properties the other day Processing Losing Power and I happened to notice that somehow I had LOST processing power My mobo is an AMD Barton and previously it would report around ghz This time I checked and it said ghz I have no idea how long it s been at this speed but I d guess for some time since I ve noticed a dramatic slowdown in my computer Let me give a history of what my computer has been through in the last month I recently came back from school on the east coast and I took my desktop with me Being the cheap that he is my dad did not want me to ship the computer but Losing Processing Power take it WITH me by packing it in my suitcase I had huge doubts about this but my dad didn t want to spend the money to ship it So I shipped it back here in one of my suitcases took it out and realized that it had a lot of problems My computer would freeze at different areas starting up BIOS options had changed somehow actually none did but it said Losing Processing Power that they did and my computer would also freeze whenever Losing Processing Power I plugged anything in or took anything out of the computer These problems slowly faded away over time but I also realized my computer was slowing down So it would really seem like this slowdown in the CPU speed has coincided with this trip back home So what s wrong with my comp It seems like it s a physical issue and that my loss of processing power is a permanent thing Would a reformat fix anything at all nbsp
