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

A:Windows 8.1 to 10 upgrade fail; No boot; avgidsha.sys

Hey...  I was able to access the drive when connected via the USB hard drive cradle on the latest version of Ubuntu.  The older version of Ubuntu only showed the drive but gave me no options to access it.
It appears that the drive might be failing.  I was able to copy the data I wanted.  I was also able to modify the avg system files as directed in the AVG support link provided in my previous post.  However, the system will still not boot.  Now it gets me back to essentially the same place as before but now it balks at file avgboot.sys or something like that.  However, this file was renamed in the earlier step, so I'm not sure what is going on there.
Anyway, I got my data and suspect the drive is failing, so I'm just going to replace the drive and install Windows 10 fresh.;-no-boot;-avgidshasys/

Boot into Safe Mode. You may have to wait a few minutes until the USB gets recognized. If that doesn't work, try a PS2 keyboard (or USB to PS2 Adapter) Go into the Add Remove programs and Uninstall the software that you installed.

 After I upgraded the ram memory of my HP DV6 from 4Gb to 8Gb (2 x 4Gb Kingston KTA-MB1333/4G), Windows wont boot anymore. I get blue screens and it keeps rebooting. I believe the specs of the memory are similar to the original Samsung M471B5673EH1-CH9 memory: 1333Ghz, non-ecc, 1.5Volt, Cas latency 9 etc.etc. It's a HP DV6-2140ED laptop with an Intel i5-430m processor and Intel mobile HM55 chipset. The bios detects 8Gb and it also passes the memory check/test. As far as I know I also installed the latest bios firmware: F.1D. Reinstalling my Windows 10 64-bit doesnt work either: with 8Gb I also get blue screens after I try to boot from my Windows 10 bootable usb flash drive. I read of other people having the same problem, but I havent read of a solution yet. What can be done about this?

The Windows upgrade media requires a previous version of windows to be present on the hard drive and activated in order for the installation to proceed Meaning if you need to reinstall win you would first have to reinstall and activate your old os Slightly different topic but totally related If you installed the Vista Upgrade the way Microsoft intended without using the quot special workaround quot the license key for your previous os would become invalid to prevent you from running more than one copy of windows with an upgrade license The Windows Upgrade requires an activated os to be present on the hard drive so Vista s workaround can t be used with win Assuming the win upgrade also invalidates your previous license wouldn Windows 7 Fail? Upgrade = t that mean it s impossible to reinstall win because you can t activate your old os I ve been wanting to ask about this for a long time but I kept putting it off so sorry if this has been answered before nbsp

If you manually changed your boot order to boot from the CD/DVD first, you have to switch it back to the hard drive on the first reboot. You only want to boot from the CD/DVD once to start the install.

IMO, you have compounded the situation by using a "downloaded" version of Windows, since I suspect that such may contain embedded malware as part of the package.

Any number of things may have caused the initial hang, as you can see by reading the data at the Aumha website.

I've been trying to upgrade to Windows 10 for a while now, but I keep getting the error code 8004100E. Windows update seems to think it is downloading fine, but when it restarts in order to configure the windows 10 update, it just boots windows 7 as normal.

I've tried deleting everything in the softwaredistribution downloads folder, but that doesn't seem to help.
I've also tried using the windows 10 media creation tool to download it and create an iso, but this also fails.

I've noticed that when windows update thinks that the upgrade has downloaded and ready to be installed that there is only about 450mb in the downloads folder of C:windows/softwaredistribution where I figure it should be closer to 3GB.

Thanks in advance for the help!

Hello, I am running Vista 32 and have purchased a Win 7 home premium upgrade from MS and I cant get it to boot from the cd. I went into bios and the boot order was correct starting with DVD/CD and it still wont do it? If I start vista and go into the DVD drive I can start it that way. I also wanted to use the 64 bit DVD that came with it because my PC is 64-bit compatible. How do I get this to boot on start OR can I just run from "My Computer" because the Win 7 screen does come up if I go that rout.


A:Upgrade to win 7 wont boot from CD

1) Did you buy the disk ready made or did you burn yourself? If yourself, try reburning at the lowest possible speed. Alternatively, make a win7 install usb stick, heres how:

USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create

2) You cannot do an upgrade install from 32 bit to 64 bit, you must clean install. If the 64 bit disk is also problematic, you can create a bootable stick the same way.

It stays like this for about a minute before going to the black screen. Any help with restoring to windows 7 from this point?

Friend of mine gave me her Acer Aspire 5742z-4813 because it fails to boot and eventually asks to repair, which it doesn't. Can't enter safe-mode, either.

Only thing she's said is that her daughter installed Norton 360 a few days before it crashed.

Things I've tried:

At command prompt, ran the following with no effect: bootrec.exe /FixMbr, bootrec.exe /FixBoot, bootrec.exe /RebuildBcd, chkdsk /f E:, and finally chkskd /f /r /x.

I also entered BIOS and changed HDD mode to IDE from ACHI. No joy.

Upgrade Install from Windows 7 or Vista to Windows 8 - Windows 8 Forums[2]=Installation and Setup

Personally, I'd suggest installing 8 on a separate partition rather than replacing 7. Windows 8 is still a test version and has not been finalized. If you're not happy with Windows 8, you can always boot into Windows 7, delete the Windows 8 partition, and continue using Windows 7 without having to go through another clean install of 7.

quot Hoping someone can offer some advice with this frustrating problem I'm currently running Vista Ultimate SP bit My motherboard is an ASUS K N-E-Deluxe nForce chipset My processor is an Athlon Newcastle Kb L Cache The Asus upgrade after 64 Processor Athlon wont Vista boot board allows for up to overclocking natively in the BIOS so I have been running this at Ghz without problems for some time I have a decent CPU Cooler and my Vista wont boot after Athlon 64 Processor upgrade CPU temps are regularly in the low s at idle I recently decided to upgrade the processor to an Athlon Clawhammer Mb L Cache I installed the processor intending to Vista wont boot after Athlon 64 Processor upgrade overclock it automatically with the same BIOS settings Put everything back together and switched the PC on It posts ok and the new processor shows up fine in the BIOS Initially with these Vista wont boot after Athlon 64 Processor upgrade settings after detecting all the disks correctly on the POST screen it initially came up with an error saying it couldn't find a bootable partition not exact error message but something along those lines I then restarted the PC entered the BIOS and put all the clock speeds back to Auto settings and rebooted This time it came up with the 'Windows Vista has encountered an error due to a hardware change' and then gave me the option to enter Safe Mode or start Windows normally I tried both options and in each case the PC restarts and at the point when the Microsoft progress bar would normally appear the PC beeps once and then restarts automatically This continuously loops if I let it I've researched around the web tonight and the processor and board are definitely meant to be compatible The BIOS reports the processor temps and voltage in the correct ranges according to the AMD specs so I'm assumming the processor is OK The Vista install was a volume licence edition I am a developer with a MSDN subscription I tried using the install DVD and it wouldn't load either Even it it did I'm in two minds whether to attempt a startup repair in case it gives me no rollback for reverting to the old processor which I've done in the meantime with no problems Not really sure what to do next so any help and advice would be appreciated Thanks in advance Darren quot Hi I posted the above thread in the Hardware Support section and didn't get any replies so I'm wondering if this is maybe more a Vista issue than a hardware one To update today I tried refitting the new CPU and reseting the BIOS to its default settings Vista still wont start and still continues on a recurrsive reboot Is Vista really that temparamental with processor changes I've done a bit of digging and Vista is using amdk sys when it runs successfully using my old processor From what I can tell this is the correct driver for the new one too Or is this a Vista flaky activation changed too much hardware issue then I really will be annoyed Any help would be appreciated thanks Darren

A:Vista wont boot after Athlon 64 Processor upgrade

Vista is a bit temperamental about Hardware changes. It freaked out last time when i needed to repair a damaged DVD drive and booted Vista without one.
See if you can boot Vista again using your old CPU. (Note: For CPU and RAM changes you need to clear the CMOS via the jumper on the motherboard.)
If you can successfully boot back into Vista, un-install the following drivers.
Disk Drives
IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers.

Then turn off your System, add the new CPU back in, clear the CMOS once again and then boot.
Let Vista re-install the drivers at where un-installed if it boots...

Hello there,
It seems like you did not perform a clean installation of Windows and that's why your system is acting up. 
Follow the steps below to install a new copy of Windows:
1. To format your hard disk during Windows 7 installation you will need to start or boot your computer using the Windows 7 installation disc or USB flash drive. Insert your Windows 7 disc in your CD/DVD drive. Please note: will need to restart or turn on your system with the disc in the drive. 
2. After turning on your system with the CD in the drive go ahead and press any key when prompted during your computer post routine and then follow the instructions presented on screen. If you don’t see this go back to step 1 to setup your BIOS to boot from CD or USB flash drive depending on your installation media.
3. On the Install Windows page simply enter your preferences and click next.
4. Accept the Windows license agreement.
5. On the “Which type of installation do you want” page go ahead and choose the “Custom” option.
6. Select Drive options (advanced) on the “Where do you want to install Windows” page.
7.  Select the partition that you want to change, choose the formatting option you want to perform and then follow the instructions.
When allocating space choosing the default MB size for your drive is typically the best for most users since you want to take full advantage of all your disk space.
8. Click “Next” for the installation to proceed.
Hope this helps!

Does the HD register in BIOS setup? Is it set first to boot in BIOS setup, after CD/DVD drive? Try booting HD maker's diagnostic/repair CD to run extended scan: HD Diagnostic

Check for infection by installing, updating and running full scan with Malwarebytes in Safe Mode with networking. If no Safe Mode then download, burn to CD or write to flash stick, boot and run a full scan with Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper.

Boot back into the DVD REpair console or Repair CD to see if it discovers an installation to repair. If not, click through to Recovery Tools list to open command Prompt, type bootrec /fixboot and bootrec /fixmbr to see if it will now show an installation to repair. Do not change the drive letter as you say you did. If it now finds an installation to repair run Startup Repair repeatedly regardless of its finding at first. Next try System Restore from the Repair tools list, then using Command Line SFC -SCANNOW Run in Command Prompt at Boot

Next boot free Partition Wizard bootable CD to see if the 100mb System Rserved partition (preferred) or Win7 partition are still marked Active. If not, rightlick to Modify>Set to Active, then highlight the HD, from Disk tab select "Rebuild MBR", apply steps, reboot to see if it will start. You can also Explore the partitions to see if your files are intact; if so the OS should be reparable unless you damaged it with previous repair attempts.

You can copy out your files using DVD/Repair CD: Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console or using Paragon Rescue CD.

Then if all else fails run Factory Recovery from boot using its Fkey given on first screen, or Recovery Disks you've made or order from manufacturer, or find a Win7 isntallation DVD to clean reinstall with Product Key on COA sticker following these steps: Reinstalling Windows 7

Update: I just tried again to boot into safe mode.
After displaying the names of some files that loaded, the system rebooted itself.
The last file that says "loaded" is classpnp.sys (i think that's what it said). Once that sits idle for a few seconds, a blue screen pops up very briefly that I cannot read.

I've been trying to upgrade from Win XP to Vista Ultimate. I have tried installing several times. The first time, the computer got hung up on expanding files at 21% and I rebooted. After that I have been getting the msg "Windows could not update the computer's boot configuration. Installation cannot proceed. I've check on a few forums and someone always says to restore the default value for the UpperFilters registry entry and then restart computer. In the steps that follow, it says to modify UpperFilters and to type PartMgr and click ok. This seems to work for some people, I however already had the PartMgr value on there. Can someone tell me what I can do, besides doing a fresh install?

You can however try the Repair Install method to see if you could save the existing copy of Windows but may likely run into any number of possible problems between lingering device drivers for hardwares and chipset no longer seen as well as other things!

The best practical advice anyone can give you for this however is still to see a Clean Install Windows 7

Hello Everyone.

I had a dual boot with Win7 and Win8. I wanted to remove Win8 cause I was bored and didn't need it. So I used a method on this forum.
I did everything right.

Dual Boot - Delete a OS

But the boot manager failed. When I restarted I got an error saying that their is some invalid information.

I didn't have the Win 7 disc, so I put the Win 8 disc and installed it in the partition that had win 8 before, hoping that it would recognized Win 7. But hasn't.

So now I have a partition of Win 7 but it is not getting recognized. Is there any way to help this?

I've installed Ubuntu 11.04 on my notebook ASUS U36SD. It worked perfectly fine for 4 months.
Recently, I decided to install the last version of Ubuntu, 11.11. From now, Windows 7 doen't want to boot: It freezes at the boot screen. I tried to use the repair mode, but it failed. I also tried the safe mode. It still does't boot and freeze when loading CLASSPNP.SYS.

Please, do you have an idea about how to solve this problem?

A:Windows 7 fail to boot after ubuntu installation

After an installation of ubuntu, my C: partition, where Windows 7 is installed is corrupted.
From linux, I can read it and access the disk, but the windows recovery environment doen't detect it.

I think that it is because my partition is also hidden (0x17)
Do you know how to unhide this partition from linux, or to make a chkdsk on it from the recovery environment?

So yesterday I installed Windows 7 on a laptop, there wasnt enough room for an upgrade so did a new install. The install went find until I had to enter information, Name, password, internet settings etc.
Here a red cross came on the screen and the laptop crashed
When the laptop restarted nothing happened. It went to a black screen and there is a a flashing underscore _ in the top right hand corner. that is it.
I can access the boot menu but cant boot from either hard drive installed in the computer which makes me think its an IDE cable fail. I can basically only boot from disc which just tries to make me install Windows 7 again and none of the repair options work. But if it lets me install windows to hard drive again it cant be an IDE fail surely? I need help ASAP

A:Windows Install Boot Fail. Emergency Help

I would go to the manufacturers website of the make of hard drive you have. Download their harddrive diagnostic tool or, use a third party one to test your hard drive. If all goes well you may have a bad copy of Windows. Might be a corrupted file on the disk or bad disk.

Last night I updated windows 8.1 from windows 8.
It got to the stage where it needs to restart so it done that started the configarations and once it reached 100% it restarted.

Since then what happens is when i press power on the samsung logo comes on the screen then the black screen with the windows picture then the bsod comes up for around half a second and it restarts. then it constantly does this.

The whole cycle only takes a few seconds.

Ive tried booting in safe mode but this isnt working so I downloaded kav rescue on another computer and saved it on a flash drive, But it wont boot off this either.

Any ideas?

What does the BSOD state? Most times it is a driver issue with the Display drivers. Other times it is hardware.

You need to be much more specific about what your problem is. I can't tell at all from your post what's really happening, and neither will anybody else. What exactly happens?

Can you access the Advanced boot options?

Advanced Boot Options
Choose Last known Good Configuration

Use the up-arrow and down-arrow keys to move the menu’s highlight to Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced), and then press Enter as the mouse won’t work at this screen.

Your computer should load successfully, and Windows 7 will discard the bad configuration and return permanently to the last known good configuration.

If it doesnt boot normally, you’ll want to get a System Repair Disk and try going back to the last System Restore Point (You may have to use a friends computer)

A:Fail to start up - Can't boot hard drive - Windows cannot be installed

I don't see where either Legacy BIOS or CSM are enabled, just Legacy Boot - is there a panel not shown? But that may be enough to Bypass UEFI to Install WIn7 if that's what worked for install.

That makes it easier to repair. Confirm the 100mb System Reserved (preferred if you have it) or C is Partition Marked Active then run Startup Repair - Run up to 3 Separate Times to see if it will start.

Different hybrid hard drives require different install procedures. If it's Intel Rapid Storage Technology it normally requires being turned off in BIOS for install, then enabled to activate the 24gb caching drive. But since IRST can also be problematic many leave it disabled. We've even helped users install to the SSD their OS and programs with the data folders linked from HDD, it worked and they wanted to keep it.

Read your Manual on the PC's Support Downloads webpage to see exactly how yours works. It would also help if you could post back a camera snap of Partition Wizard CD
drive map and listings. That tool can also mark Active and add another step which helps start Win7 by running Partition Wizard Rebuild MBR - Video Help.

I restarted my windows 7 Compaq NX 7400 laptop yesterday after an automatic windows update and since that time I have been unable to reboot my laptop. I have tried all recovery/repair options on the windows installation disc but to date now have worked.

The message shown is "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause". I having exhausted all the repair options and now worked, I opted to to do another installation on the same partition;after all files were copied and the machine rebooted I ran into the same problem; only this time the error was "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem: File: \windows\system32\winload.exe status: 0xc000000f"

A:Windows 7 fail to boot after windows update

I am unclear as to whether safe mode will boot right now.
Have you tried that?
It sounds like you have a corrupt windows file (possibly an indication of a failing hard drive) normally I would just start safe mode with command prompt and run
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

I'm unclear if you are able to do that at the moment though.

I'm thinking I'll have to go with failing hard drive if this has happened twice in a row though.
Though I also notice there is no official windows 7 support from compaq/hp for your laptop either.
It could simply be a bunch of drivers failing.

Either way if you are unable to run a SFC a repair install is probably your best bet. It will reset the windows settings but should leave programs and files still functional.

So now, whenever I try to boot from a 32-bit installation cd, yes, I've pressed F12 and selected boot from cd, the Boot Manager doesn't work and goes to this screen no matter what I try:

Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:

1. Insert your Windows installation disc and restart your computer.
2. Choose your language settings, anche then click "Next."
3. Click "Repair your computer."

If you do not have this disc, contact your system administrator or computer manufacturer for assistance.

Try running other hard drive tests. I suggest the Seagate Seatools and the Hitachi DFT. Instructions are at this post: Hard Drive Diagnostic Procedure

Hard drives are funny creatures and depending on how they are failing they can produce different problems.
I have no idea of how Linux works, so I'll just guess that it uses different functions when accessing the hard drive.

The main point of a dying hard drive isn't why it works using different techniques/OS's - but rather one of "When is it going to completely die?" So backing up your stuff is the most important thing to do (which you are doing).

Disconnecting/reconnecting may help if the connection between the hard drive and the motherboard is bad/dirty. And this sort of problem will give many of the same symptoms that a dying hard drive will give.

FWIW - The other day we took a Dell Inspiron N5010 apart at work. It's not an easy task, but there are plenty of directions available on the web.

Could the windows boot files somehow be corrupted causing it not to boot, ...

If that were the case, then you'd be able to boot to the System Repair disc. System Repair is a tool that checks and repairs (if needed) the Windows boot files.

In the US a hard drive will cost you between $50 to $90 (shop around for a good price on a brand name drive on the web) - and it'll take you a couple of hours to take the system apart in order to get at the hard drive, and maybe a little less to put it back together (depending on your mechanical aptitude).

My shop charges approximately $200 (+ the new hard drive) in order to diagnose the problem, install the new hard drive, and then install/update Windows (using your Dell recovery disks). Quite frankly, because of the difficulty in disassembling the system - this is a great deal!

A new computer is $400 to $600 for an entry level model.

It's your choice, go with what best suits you.
Good Luck!

Hi there
So what I gather is that you now cannot start your computer up at all, due to this issue. I'm actually unsure of the problem, it sounds to me like a Virus has been at your computer. It can't really be a hardware issue I don't think... I mean it is possible that what could have been happening is that your computer (Desktop or Laptop?) is overheating and its been damaged because of that... But that wouldn't really make sense, and also having Custom Built a computer I'm sure you'd have been smart enough to install a thoroughly capable cooling system.
It sounds to me like your hard drive has been corrupted though, BSOD usually means a pretty big issue. Thats why I was thinking hardware problem to begin with, you don't often get it for Virus's.
A couple of things we need to know:
Do you have any sort of Anti-Virus installed? If so, which one? How frequently did it scan? Did you find any virus's?
Also, how far into the boot process does the computer get before it loops? Are you able to enter BIOS settings before Blue Screen comes up and it loops? What happens when it loops?
And do you have a startup / boot disk for your computer. You certainly should do.

Hi l've been having a constant to to Updates Fail, Fail Slow Windows Service, Connect a Response, etc issue with my computer and I can't seem to get out of this trouble no matter how many times I reinstall and even wipe out my hard drive I wiped out everything in my hard drive and installed Updates Fail, Slow Response, Fail to Connect to a Windows Service, etc windows Ultimate for the ' th' time and the same problems happen every single time Right after the install it seems to work fine but as I install numerous windows updates as it recommended almost forced me to 'cause it does automatically my computer becomes so slow in everything It doesn't start up the menu and such looks as if I'm in a safe mode blocky and old looking even if I manage to start it up have to wait more than min or even hr for it to respond The situation I'm having now is the pop up message saying quot Failed to connect to a windows service windows couldn't connect to the System Event Notification Service service This prevents standard user from logging on to the system As an administrative user you can review the System Event Log for details about why the service didn't respond quot Also the computer has been failing at installing several updates such as Security Update for Microsoft NET Framework on Windows and Windows Server R SP for x -based Systems Update for Windows for x -based Systems KB KB KB KB KB Because of that it sometimes ran chkdsk on the boot screen and deleted fixed files I don't think it's caused by virus 'cause I wiped out every single file in my hard drive before I reinstalled windows And obviously my hard drive is almost empty because of that Is it possible that either motherboard or hard drive is damaged and not working Or do I need a new windows OS I don't understand why I'm having the same issues even after I reinstall and delete everything in my hard drive for the times in total as I repeated many times

It could be that the HDD has a bad sector in the Windows partition, or that the drive is actually failing. If there is a utility in Linux that tests memory, I would run it.

You could also use Memtest86+. It runs from a CD/DVD. Let it run for several passes to rule out bad RAM.

This in reference to when windows xp will not boot, and when trying to boot, it brings you to a text screen saying... Windows will not load. File HAL32.dll cannot be found or is corrupted. And this process lists several files that windows says are missing.

How can one go about using the command line repair interface to repair these files? Can someone provide me a link to the process on how to do this in such a scenario. The reason I want to do this is so I dont have to reformat (or at least try not to) if I dont have to. I know quite a few techs out there that just dont mess with it. But I would really like to know how to do this.

Any suggestions and or experiences would be great.

Hello, I've a Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop which has Vista on it.

Windows will not boot past the main screen, it ends up restarting over and over.

I attempted to install Windows 7 on the drive without doing a clean install. The Installation hung at "Completing Installation"

I installed from a flash drive because for some reason this laptop wont install from the cd rom drive.

I need to salvage many important business related files from the laptop and don't want to do a clean install unless absolutely necessary.

Is it possible to salvage the files from this laptop? I cant boot into it, no safe mode, nor standard boot. Nor can I seem to be able to 'over write' or 'set aside' vista and install windows 7

Please Help
