Preferred Solution: Windows Stuck in Start Screen or Start-Up Repair Mode

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.)

Welcome!

Fortunately, you can still create a repair disc, using method 2 of this tutorial: System Repair Disc - Create

Just download the ISO and burn it.

Try booting to the repair disc, and try a System Restore: System Restore

Good luck!

Hi 
At my current company we have an issues after windows updates occur. All of these are HP machines, sporadically some machines fail to boot to windows, stay stuck at the windows logo screen or they get start up repair issue sometimes this goes in to the.


The temp fix we found is to press F8 > Last know good config.
 Then we log in and do bios update / firmware update. This fix lasts for a while, then after windows updates or without update the same problem occurs including that machines that have had the BIOS/firmware updates. What we have done is run the BIOS
update again even though its the same BIOS update installed previosly as there are no more new updates avaiable. This again temporarily fixes this. 
Any idea on how to resolve this without us doing BIOS update etc.

I am working on an HP 2000-2b09wm laptop running windows 8.   When you start the computer, it shopws the hp sign and under it is says, "WIndows Automatic Repair" then after it runs for a few minutes, it goes to a black screen?   I cannot get to the windows desktop to start repairing it or starting a virus scan.   I am kind of new to windows 8.  How can i fix this?  How do i start it in safe mode so i can install and start i virus scan?  Any help would be great.  THANKS!

A:How to start in SAFE MODE? Stuck on automatic repair?

From the Windows 8 Help & Support, here's the procedure
``````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````````
Windows Startup Settings (including safe mode)
With Windows Startup Settings (which used to be called "Advanced boot options") you can start Windows in different advanced troubleshooting modes to help you find and fix problems on your PC.
To get to Windows Startup Settings
1.     Swipe in from the right edge of the screen, tap Settings, and then tap Change PC settings.
(If you're using a mouse, point to the lower-right corner of the screen, move the mouse pointer up, click Settings, and then click Change PC settings.)
2.     Under PC settings, tap or click Update and recovery, and then tap or click Recovery.
3.     Under Advanced startup, tap or click Restart now.
4.     Once your PC restarts, on the Choose an option screen, tap or click Troubleshoot.
5.If you don't see the Startup Settings option, tap or click Advanced options.
6.     Tap or click Startup Settings.
7.     Tap or click Restart.
8.     On the Startup Settings screen, choose the startup setting you want.
9.     Sign in to your PC with a user account that has administrator rights.

 MS keeps coming out with updates telling us how wonderful they've made it, but I defy anyone to call this an improvement!

My computer is stuck in Start up Repair Mode, I have spent days trying to figure something out. Is the only thing i can do let it restart and restart and eventually it will fix itself? I have tried all F2 booting options and theres really nothing in F12 i can use. But the problem is, when i go to hit F8 or shift F11, the computer just beeps at me and nothing happens. i have tried without the battery and holding the power button for 30 sec. Is there any other options or is this the end?

Hi there,
Yesterday I was watching a video on my laptop when a terrible grinding noise, like a disk stuck in a drive, started blasting out and the computer froze. It was a terrible sound so I unplugged the laptop.
Now, when I turn it on I am taken through the start up repair but none of the restore options or diagnostic scans work. I am just brought back here when the laptop resets. If I try to boot in safe mode or via a usb the laptop blue screens.
I can boot asus express cloud but when I try to open the OS from there it blue screens too.
I am looking for a way to get back into my computer. Any help is much appreciated.
I am using an ASUS 64 bit laptop that runs windows 7. If any further information is needed please let me know. Thanks in advance.

A:stuck in blue screen/start up repair loop

It appears like your OS malfunctioned. Try installing another bootable OS immediately the blue screen appears. I recommend a  different version of OS from the one you are using.

If the PC cannot launch into Windows, it may still be possible to use the HP Recovery Manager on the hard drive to restore the computer to its original operating condition by first pressing the Power button to start the PC, and then pressing the F11 key to start the HP Recovery Manager. NOTE: Depending on the BIOS version, your computer may display multiple prompts during startup including F11 to start System Recovery.

Hello, I've got a laptop ASus for 2months, after removing avast and using ccleaner my laptop is stuck on a repair loop.Tryied most of the things i found online but nothing.
 
I saw in an older post about downloading a recovery tool?
 
Can you please help me?

A:Computer won't start up, stuck in start up repair

Did you use the registry tool in CCleaner?
 
Why did you remove Avast and use the CCleaner?
 
If this laptop is only a couple of months old you shouldn't have a great deal of additional data or applications installed on it.  It may be worth using the System Recovery partition to reset the operating system to the condition it was in when it came out of the box.
 
What is the model of the ASUS?

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.

Like the title says, my computer is stuck on a black screen. I downloaded an update and was instructed to restart the computer. After restarting the computer it went to a black screen. It won't do anything past that. I've tried starting it in safe mode but always with the same result. I have no idea what to do with this short of taking it to Best Buy to have the geek squad take a look at it and frankly I don't feel like doing that. If anyone knows how to fix this or has any suggestions, I'm open to anything. Please help.

Have you tried selecting Last Known Good Configuration from the Safe Mode menu? It sometimes works. Also, if you put in your W7 DVD and select Repair rather than Install after making the language choice, StartUp repair might help and if it does not, try System Restore.

Hello and welcome Rivet mate you are in the right place now and I know how frustrating it can be but there are lots of real clever folks in here that can help out.

Now can you get Malwarebytes and SuperAntiSpyware onto a stick and run these in the machine with the problem?

http://www.superantispyware.com/

http://www.malwarebytes.org/products/malwarebytes_free/

both are free and might take a while to run. Also what are you using to install the 7 on the machine as you say you don't want to format and start again which leaves me thinking you have done some stuff on the machine before this problem cropped up? I ask because I would normally say try another install. It would be useful to use the tutorial below first but you need a machine with a running system to attach the drive to.

Get to Windows Recovery Environment:
 
Press F8 during startup, until you get the black screen with Repair my computer, Safe mode, ...
Choose 'Repair my computer'.
Then in the System Recovery Options, please select Command Prompt.

 
Type in the command prompt: notepad

Hi first of all sorry for my bad English...

I can not start the computer in normal mode, only in safe mode
I tried system restore but still I can not run Windows 7 in normal mode

When I press f8 at startup option to repair your computer is not listed as an option.
i tried system restores but without any success.
i also tried reagentc/enable by searching solutions in one of the posts here and its says it on but when i startup the f8 i still can't find the repair option.

I don't have the installation cd and I cannot currently get the cd,any suggestions?
Thanks.

A:windows 7 start only in safe mode and the repair option is missing

If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, or it's not up to the Service Pack level currently installed, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here:

Windows 7 Direct Download Links

Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file. Just be careful during the install not to accidentally install some of the bundled junk that comes with it. Always take The Custom Install option.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

YOU MUST HAVE A VALID KEY TO INSTALL THIS .ISO. The one on the COA sticker on your computer will work.

You can also create a bootable USB Flash drive (4GB or larger) to install Windows 7 from.Download and run Universal USB Installer Easy as 1 2 3
Select Windows 7 from the first drop down list, all the way to the bottom
Select the downloaded Windows 7 iso file
Select your USB flash drive
Click Create
For techies or folks who work on computers: Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.

This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.

Hi!

A few days ago, when I turned on my laptop, it said "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." I tried solving the problem via installation disc and Repair your computer, but Startup repair doesn't seem to do anything (ran it twice), System restore can't find a point from which to restore and Refresh your PC also doesn't do anything. By the way, every operation in Repair your computer takes really long, about one or two hours.

Also, I can't get into safe mode as pressing the f8 (or f5) button ends in beeping and command prompt starts with x:\sources instead of c:\windows so safeboot minimal/network doesn't work.

I've also tried using explorer.exe to copy the most urgent files to usb flash drive but it doesn't show the files from c:.

Any ideas?

Thanks and best regards.

Rikster, were you doing a clean install? Can you provide any details why it shut down and started with a repair?
If clean install and you don't need any files etc from that disk, I would first verify teh HDD integrity somehow and start over with the clean install.

Well that worked for me, make sure you get the spacing's on the forward slash correct. The top sections was Program start excel safe mode. I clicked it and excel opened in safe mode? I don't think this has anything to do with windows 8.1 seem the method was the same in windows 7
I'm no Office expert but it sounds like you have some seriously damaged files in Office, you could try a repair install perhaps that would fix them for you.

A:Stuck On "windows Did Not Start Successfully" Screen

It sounds to me that it has corupted some of the main system files. The best thing to do would be to run a boot disk like UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD) and then take all the files you require off onto a external drive. Then restore from backup.
If you don't have a backup then try running the XP CD and use the repair mode when prompted. This will enable you to run a Chkdsk /f to fix any errors on the drive. Although I don't think this will help.

Best option remove the files you want to keep and do a reload of XP if you don't have a backup.

I Hope this helps

I am writing from my own laptop, but the problem I am having is with another laptop.It is a Sony Vaio running Windows Vista.I am getting an error message when trying to turn it on--Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:1. Insert you Windows installation disc and restart your computer.2. Choose language settings, click next3. Click "repair your computer"If you do not have the disc (of course, I don't!) contact your system admin or computer manufacturer for assistance.File: \Windows\system32\config\systemStatus: 0xc000014cInfo: Windows failed to load because the system registry file is missing or corrupt.

A:Windows VISTA: Failed to start...won't start in safe mode, or any other mode!

Typically the system32 Files I would simply replace and expect to get back in to Windows, but with The Registry file being purported as Damaged or missing I would recommend re-installing windows. You can get restore CD's from your manufacturer.

If you tap the F8 key on boot and get options to boot into other modes, I would pick Last known good configuration as you might fix the problem this way.
Not likely, but it's worth a shot.

You can work through the steps for Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Start but it may be faster to run Dell Windows 7 PC Restore or do a Clean Reinstall Windows 7 so you have the best install instead of an old mess.

You have within your power the ability to do a perfect Clean Reinstall Windows 7 which will beat any new PC you'd buy. If you instead decide to run Factory Recovery then you can improve performance afterward following Clean Up Factory Bloatware

Since Dell has built-in Diagnostics, start by running Dell Hardware Diagnostics from F12 Menu to know it's hardware condition. If these will run then during any reinstall be sure to save the Dell Utility partition which houses these.

Not sure what your son did, but according to Startup Repair, your registry is corrupt.
You can try the steps outlined here to try to roll back the registry settings: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-system/corrupt-registry-root-cause-in-startup-repair/f77d5355-b8be-41d6-af24-cae994e1768f
 
If that doesn't work, you may have to wipe the hard drive entirely and do a clean re-install of the operating system.

Test Memory

All tests have been ran and complete with no errors, but when I select exit, the computer reboots and goes right back into the screen with the three options.

I have made a repair/recovery disk, but system repair just spins continuously and will not finish. I have left it for one week now and it is stuck.

I have ran the sic and chkdsk routines with no help. I have even went into the boot directory to /remove the mending message, but still no luck.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

Hi, Thank you for posting. Welcome to the HP Support forum ! Sound like a software issue. From what you write, it seems like it cannot find an operating system.  Please, first perform hardware check - to be on the safe side. 1. Please, shutdown the computer using the power button2. Power it on.2.1 As soon as you press the power-on button, keep hitting the Esc button (like tap-tap-tap).This should open a HP Startup Menu which may look similar to this one 3. Choose F2 to open System Diagnostics. Follow the on-screen instructions to perform System Test >> Quick test.This will check major hardware componets for issue (do it just in case) . Here is more info >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c03467259#AbT1  If the tests pass without issues, continue. If not, please, let me know  Windows reinstallation/HP Recover If your computer originally came with Windows preinstalled by HP (a.k.a. OEM Windows), it should have recovery partition which will help you restore your machine to factory default condition. Repeat steps 1-2 but when HP Startup menu opens, please choose F11 for System Recovery options. Note, that F11 option below will only work if the recovery partition is there (not deleted) and intact. The computer should boot from recovery partition to open you various recovery options. From there, you have prenty of options to choose from.

Hi Anti & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

This bug check indicates that the Microsoft Windows operating system has lost access to the system partition during startup.

Did you try with another HDD? I would suggest you doing the Disk Diagnostics and report back the results -
Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

I didn't know where exactly this should go so let me know if there is somewhere else it should be I was cruisin' through the internet next thing stuck, wait with start as is Please usual. a black Windows up screen. I know the Windows start up as usual. Please wait is stuck, with a black screen. only page that will load is the new tab page So like any hard working male I restart my computer Well when i try to restart it after the windows graphic screen I get the 'Please wait ' and after a Windows start up as usual. Please wait is stuck, with a black screen. few seconds it goes to a black screen A few more seconds it goes back to the 'Please wait ' screen If left enough times it will go back to the windows start up graphic and the process will begin again I have tried to access the boot menu but I am unable to because of the use of a USB keyboard I have the availability of the mouse cursor and I can use the keyboard in the 'Please wait ' and blank screen but when it goes back to the start up graphic I am unable to use it I have tried a few things I could think of Plugging the USB keyboard into a different USB slot to see if my mother board gave it precedent multiple restarts spamming all manner of key combinations and none of it has worked Any help with this situation would be Windows start up as usual. Please wait is stuck, with a black screen. greatly appreciated

A:Windows start up as usual. Please wait is stuck, with a black screen.

You will have to plug the keyboard as PS2. PS2 keyboards are not very expensive and a usb-to-ps2 adapter is about ?1. I am afraid that there is no way to get the USB keyboard recognized before the drivers have loaded.

I hope someone can help me. I turned on the computer and in the middle of start up I knocked the DSL modem off the tower and down behind it....this caused the computer to shut off. When I pick the DSL modem back up the computer came back on. Now it is stuck in a continuous cycle of trying to start up. I will get the Windows XP start up screen then it goes to "off in 5 sec" then it ends up on a screen that says "Windows was shut down improperly...etc" It is a whole page and it recommends both restarting it in Normal system mode or Last known Good Configuration....I have tried both and it just continuous with this cycle.

What do I do?

Could you explain this point a bit more? Is it the Windows advanced boot screen? Have you attempted to boot into safe mode?

How did you try to format the drive? When you say nothing happened, what did you do to format? Also, is it an OEM CD or a Windows XP CD?

Hello my mother has a laptop DELL Latitude D with Windows not stuck error, file start, at found Windows screen Pro XP won't black XP Professional on it It used to work fine but one day gave an error message that the NTDSAPI dll was not found and suggested reinstalling the application After clicking OK the screen goes black and the Windows XP Pro won't start, file not found error, stuck at black screen only thing visible is the pointer arrow I used another computer to download a copy of the file and put it on a usb drive I then rebooted the laptop hit F and booted from the CD using an Ubuntu CD I didn't install Ubuntu I just had it run from the CD I then connected the USB drive and used Ubuntu to copy the file to C Windows System I then restarted the computer and then got an error message that NCObjAPI DLL was not found I repeated the same steps above rebooted again and got an error message again that yet another file was missing At that point I decided to try and find another way to fix this since I had no idea how many more times it would have me replace a file Since this laptop was bought awhile back through Ebay we have no microsoft XP Pro CD to use the microsoft recovery console I found several online but they all seem to be for Microsoft XP Home After I download the iso and burn to a CD using ImgBurn I try to launch the recovery console on the laptop but without success Instead of bringing up a menu to open recovery console it tries to install windows or something and eventually gives a pci sys error I believe this is because all the iso's I've found are for XP Home and I need XP Pro I don't know what to try next I read a post somewhere about renaming moving system restore files to restore the laptop to an earlier state and I could probably rename the files using Ubuntu but I'm not sure that wouldn't mess things up more As it is I've used Ubuntu to go back and delete the files I added in case they were the problem and now I get the following error messages Services exe - Unable to Locate Component This application has failed start because NCObjAPI DLL was not found Re-installing the application may fix this problem Then the only option is an OK button After clicking that a second error message appears lsass exe - Unable to Locate Component This application has failed to start because NTDSAPI dll was not found Re-installing the application may fix this problem Again there is only an OK button to click and after that the screen stays black The only thing that shows is the pointer arrow and that can be moved around Any assistance or guidance would be greatly appreciated Thanks

A:Windows XP Pro won't start, file not found error, stuck at black screen

FWIW:  The Recovery Console for XP Home is the same one for XP Pro.
 
I don't believe the Recovery Console is the cure for whatever is wrong...if system files are missing/corrupted, ti seems to me that you need either recovery disks or a Genuine XP install disk to even attempt running sfc /scannow or doing a repair or clean install.

So, what should I do now?
I don't have any xp cd around, if I did I'd re-install it because I've just had it with this pc.

just need to get to the desktop so I can undo the file move because I moved the atapi.sys file from system32\drivers to desktop, didn't delete it

I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 and yesterday my laptop fell from my table onto carpet. When I picked it up everything seemed to be working fine so I put it away,  but today when trying to turn it on, it keeps going to start up repair and saying it cannot repair it. Sometimes a restore to earlier point dialogue appears and after hitting yes it does nothing. I ran the Farbar Recovery Scan and this is the text for it.

Usually after a hard knock like that the damage will be to hardware, not software like the operating system.  The first thing to do, if you are comfortable in doing this, would be to check and see that the hdd and RAM is still properly seated.  Other than that about all you can do is to run Memtest86 to check the RAM and the manufacturer's diagnostic tool for your hdd. Memtest86 Instructions***** A. If you have more than one RAM module installed, try starting computer with one RAM stick at a time.NOTE Keep in mind, the manual check listed above is always superior to the software check, listed below. DO NOT proceed with memtest, if you can go with option AB. If you have only one RAM stick installed......run memtest...1. Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)2. Unzip downloaded memtest86+-....iso.zip file.3. Inside, you'll find memtest86+-....iso file.4. Download, and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/5. Insert blank CD into your CD drive.6. Open ImgBurn, and click on Write image file to disc7. Click on Browse for a file... icon:8. Locate memtest86+-....iso file, and click Open button.9. Click on ImgBurn green arrow to start burning bootable memtest86 CD:10. Once the CD is created, boot from it, and memtest will automatically start to run.  A side note.  You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the DVD/CD-ROM the first device in the boot order to be able to boot from the CD you created.The running program will look something like this depending on the size and number of ram modules installed:It's recommended to run 5-6 passes. Each pass contains very same 8 tests.This will show the progress of the test. It can take a while. Be patient, or leave it running overnight.The following image is the test results area: (Unfortunately the image which should have been shown here apparently isn't available from what ever host site was used.)The most important item here is the “errors” line. If you see ANY errors, even one, most likely, you have bad RAM. As for the hdd, you can use the service tag on the bottom of the laptop to find out who the manufacturer of the hdd.  Once you know this you can go to the manufacturer's website and download their diagnostic tool, you will want the DOS version which will allow you to burn this file to a CD. Let us know if there are any other question.

FRST is a tool used for malware situations...it is not used in this forum.
 
If you know/suspect that your problems are due to malware...you need to post your FRST log data into a new topic which you will initiate in the forum containing Preparation Guide, Before Using Malware Removal Tools and Requesting Help - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic34773.html .  If you can, follow Steps 6-8 of the Guide, pasting your DDS log into your new topic in that forum.

Hi Does anybody have any suggestions? I can only boot up in safe mode Ive tried loading windows 7 disc to repair wont work in safe mode,did restore no luck,did panda safe disk reload did virus scan clean,did dskchk,tried start windows normal from f8 menu,last known good config etc.... PLS advise THX Frog88 (gateway laptop)
 

A:Solved: stuck in safe mode,every start

I would jump to the following suggestion, but am in doubt if you say even the restored image does the same, but.
Open Msconfig - Boot tab.
Make sure you have UNchecked the item "safe boot"

Other than that, the cause will be faulty drivers or failing ram. You could try checking the seating on the ram modules.
Whilst you are in Msconfig, have a lok under the startup tab and see if there is anything running on startup which looks unusual.

You MAY have used the wrong procedure, using [F10].

If you have your Norton Antivirus CD, it MAY be bootable and have a Virus Removal Tool included. Newer version of Norton do.

If not, have your fianc? go to Norton Support Chat and see if they have a download boot ISO file she can burn to CD (if she has a CD-R drive).

A:Cannot Start My Computer Stuck In Safe Mode

There can be several causes for this to include BIOS, software, malware and wireless keyboards. "Safe Mode" is a troubleshooting mode designed to start Windows with minimal drivers and running processes to diagnose problems with your computer. If you have a wireless keyboard, and your BIOS does not natively support it, then the device drivers for the keyboard need to load for it to function. And since starting a computer in Safe Mode prevents many drivers from loading, you are unable to enter into it since your keyboard does not function if the proper drivers do not load. Try using a PS/2 keyboard - a keyboard with a cable that plugs into the back of your PC.Also there are times when the wireless transmitter and receiver fail to make contact with each other and need to be reset or require battery replacement.For more suggestions see Situations in Which Windows May Not Start in Safe Mode and the Community Newsletter: Where has Safe Mode gone?

A:Startup repair after "Windows is Loading Files".Cant start safe mode

Welcome to the Forum.
It sound like the first problem is overheating. This can cause many more problems all by itself.
If it was my laptop I would take it apart and clean completely. I would also check the operation of the fan. (If in doubt replace the fan).
If you don't feel comfortable taking the laptop apart and cleaning I would take it to a shop.
You must not use the laptop until the cooling problem is solved.

A:Stop Error Screen Windows Won't Start Even In Safe Mode

Most likely a hardware driver problem.
You could try a repair re-install. Instructions here:

Windows Repair Install
You should know that after a repair you will have to re-install all updates, including and uninstalled service packs.

Or, first check to make sure the named driver isn't corrupted. If you can't get into Windows, you'll need a Windows XP CD, hopefully with SP2, and follow these instructions:

To Extract a file using the Recovery Console

Insert your Windows XP CD and restart the computer.
At the prompt 'Press any key to boot from CD', press Enter.
Windows Setup will load. This takes a few minutes.

After Setup loads, press R on your keyboard to enter the Recovery Console.
At the prompt to select 'Which Windows installation would you like to log onto', on your keyboard press the number of the installation. This will usually be 1 unless you are dual-booting.
You will get to a prompt C:\WINDOWS

You now have to locate your CD drive. The CD drive letter will depend on if/how your hard drive is partitioned and the number of CD drives. To do this:

Type D: and press Enter
If there is a valid D: drive type in dir

You are looking for a listing of files that will look something like this:
AUTORUN.INF
DOCS
DOTNETFIX
I386
etc.

If D: doesn't give this result try typing in E: followed by dir
If E: doesn't give this result try typing in F: followed by dir
etc.

When you have located the CD drive type in the following:

expand i386\SCSIPORT.SY_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\drivers /y

(Note the spaces: after expand; before C:; before /y
and that's a letter i in front of 386
and that's an underscore after SY)

Press the Enter key.
You should get a confirmation that the file was expanded.

Restart the computer by pressing the power button, remove the CD, and boot up normally.

No matter what option i pick in the safe mode list, the computer will not start. when i choose any of the safe modes, (safe mode, safe mode with networking etc) the computer displays a list of random commands (i dont understand any of it) and then restarts. If I try to Start Windows Normally, or use last settings that worked, it seems to start loading, and then restarts.

Any ideas?

I tried to change the setting back to Normal Start up, however the laptop refuses to do so. When I try to tick on 'Make all boot settings permanent' it constantly makes me choose Selective start up. Also there is no networking in diagnostic mode, or in Safe Mode with Networking.
 

A:Stuck in continuous diagnostic start uo mode with no networking

Hello, try this:
1) Boot into safe mode.
2) Type into the start menu (or run in Windows XP) "msconfig".
3) On the first tab, select "Normal Startup".

That should ensure a normal boot process and not a selective one.

My friend has a Windows 7 Starter-based netbook. He has asked me to help but I can't seem to find where the problem is. 
Each time I try to boot the PC, the log-in screen appears, I provide the credentials, and then the white screen appears and nothing can be seen or done. The only thing I can do is pressing ctrl+alt+del, which gives me the normal lock screen, but from here I can only lock the PC or turn it off, nothing else works.
 
 
If I try to boot up in safe mode, the PC, after asking for credentials, reboots within 10-15 seconds.
 
Can't seem to figure out what to do.
 
Please, could you help me?

A:Safe Mode and Start Up Repair - No Cursor to choose any options

You cannot use a mouse in the Boot options screen prior to entering Safe Mode for the simple reason that at this point the mouse drivers have not been loaded. Use the up and down arrow keys to move up and down the options, and when you have settled on the one you want - press the Enter key. You do in fact have a cursor of sorts, but it is a white underscore, not a pointer.

On Friday when booting windows failed to start and went into auto-repair. It did start then and again the next day. However this morning it failed again and the auto-repair was not able to resolve the issue, including when I told it to do a system restore.

I have tried to start windows in safe mode but rather than booting and the list of windows files is done I get a blue screen for 1 second and am back at the windows failed to launch screen (repair windows or start normally options). On two occasions while tapping f8 to get into safe mode while the screen was displaying "boot from cd/dvd" an error message came up stating that there was a disk read error.

A:Windows won't start, also won't start in safe mode.

It sounds like it's possible the hard disk has developed a problem. I'd suggest going to the manuf's website and downloading their tool for checking that specific model drive. Hopefully they will have an ISO that can be burned to CD or USB stick and you can boot into the tool and have it check the drive.

To boot from a CD or USB stick this option must be enabled in the BIOS... and sometimes the advanced boot screen that allows one to choose to boot from an alternate device has to be enabled before it can be accessed during boot (usually by tapping F12, but it can be different for different machines). So you might have to boot into the BIOS to enable these things before it will boot from a CD or USB stick.

But maybe someone else has another preliminary, easier option to try first. But a read error sounds indicative of a HD problem.

In some cases windows Recovery disks may help.

Here is the link for Windows 7 x86 edition :

http://www.forum.probz.net/index.php...vironment-iso/

Click the download button on the page and then burn the iso file to a Cd-r medium.

But if Win7 recovery cd is not of help ,in that case Live CD 's come to aid.

Here is the list of linux livecd's :

Linux | The LiveCD List

Booting via a livecd (free Linux distributions) needed files can be recovered and copied
to external mediums and system afterwards can be re-setup.

Linux livecd can be burned onto a dvd-r /cd-r disk or to an usb flash memory.USB is faster and better
of course.

Laptops like Toshiba have recovery partitions in many cases, and a special recovery
option is provided upon bootup.(F9 - F10 likewise..)

hope your problem gets solved.

A:Vista unable to start in any mode, running startup repair gives BSOD

Test the hard drive first to get that out of the way before trying anything else, since trying to fix anything with a hard drive that's failed is pointless. You will need the drive maker's Diagnostic Software for DOS, & the links are here:
http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287 (if your drive maker does not have diagnostic software (eg Toshiba), you can use the Seagate software SeaTools for DOS from here: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/downloads/seatools/

The DOS version is an ISO file from which you can create a bootable CD using IMGBurn: http://filehippo.com/download_imgburn/

Boot your faulty laptop from the CD to test the drive.

A:Black screen when start in normal mode, works in safe mode only.

Hello CliffordJ. Microsoft Security Essentials is installed, correct? Many MSE users running Vista (but not all) suffered black screen after login following installation of Update for Microsoft Security Essentials - 4.9.218.0 (KB3140527), released about a month ago. In fact there is already a thread here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/606422/windows-vista-x64-bksod-after-login-or-no-access-in-normal-mode-suspect-mse/. The posters there disabled MSE 4.9 in Safe Mode by unticking a brand-new setting in the UI (Administrator > Turn on this app). Another method of escaping this situation would be to restore your system to a point before the update was installed, then hide the update in Windows Update. That would allow you to resume using MSE 4.8 if you wish.
 
I am extremely curious why this happens to many but not all MSE users running Vista. If more advanced forum members ask you for further information, I hope you will cooperate. Above all, I wonder if any other security software with real-time protection is installed (or perhaps improperly uninstalled)? Of course there is a possibility that your issue is something else...

So, I just turned on my laptop and it goes to a screen with the Dell logo, "Studio" undernearth it, and a loading bar.
The problem is, the loading bar won't fill, no matter what I do! Then after a few minutes, it just goes to a b lack screen!
It says f2 for setup and f12 for reboot in the corner, but those don't do anything when I hit them!
Help me?! I just got this laptop a year ago, i'm dead if it stops working.
