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.)

I recently formatted and reinstalled my Windows 7 OS. Windows has since detected hundreds of updates and has been installing them. Unfortunately, upon restarting Windows has informed me that it has been unable to install updates, and had to revert to old settings. Then when I shut down it attempts to install them again, only to fail upon reboot, revert to old settings, and repeat the cycle again.

I have disabled automatic updates for the time being, with the hope this will temporarily correct this problem, but I need a more permanent fix. Any advise would be welcome.

Thanks.

Go to your control panel in windows. Once it opens . Scroll down to the trouble shooting icon. Then click on it. Once it opens . Click on System and Security Icon. From here it should fix your windows update problems. Hope this helps.

Hello all,

I have a lab (of about 20 of the same machines).
windows 7 professional, 32 bit OS, 4gigs ram...

Three of these machines recently have become stuck in an endless loop after some windows updates. They reboot at "applying windows operation 1170".

I've recently put Deep Freeze on these machines, and they're stuck in a frozen state right now.

I've tried safe mode, startup recovery, unfreezing via the server console... with no luck with anything.

So, I'm assuming Deep Freeze is the cause of the problem. Is there anyway I can get into the computer to disable it?

Over the past 2 months, Windows update (Win 8.1, HP Pavilion) has failed three times. After selecting the recommended downloads, the PC goes into a permanent loop of updating, restarting, failure to update, return to previous configuration and then attempting to install updates again with subsequent failure & endless loop. I have to use the 3-finger salute to interrupt and regain control. I have currently disabled automatic update. This odd pattern occurred last fall with my Vista laptop (Toshiba), but after ignoring all updates for about 2 months and then re-enabling updates that laptop seems fine & recent updates have gone smoothly. Now the problem is the Win 8.1 PC and its inability to install updates. Suggestions?

I had a very similar experience.  Here is how I fixed it. Download sp41954.exe from here  or search for it.  Double-click on the file to launch the application.  If you are running Vista or higher, close the program, go to where it extracted (C:\swsetup\sp41954) and find the file FirmwareUpdater.exe.  Right-click on the file and select properties.  Click the Compatibility tab and select "Run this program in compatibility mode for: Windows XP (Service Pack 3)".  Launch FirmwareUpdater.exe and create a bootable diskette.  If you are running XP, you can create the bootable diskette from the sp41954 directly. Power off the laptop.  Connect the USB Floppy drive with the newly created diskette to the laptop.  Hold down all four arrow keys while turning on the laptop.  Continue to hold down the four arrow keys until you see either the num-lock or cap-lock key flashing ( don't remember which).  It should be reading from the diskette.  After a minute or so, the laptop should reboot and operate normally. When I did this, I disconnected everything from the laptop and removed the battery.  I do not know if it was necessary to remove everything or not. Hope this helps.

Hi.
I hav seen threads about people wanting this, but not the other way around.
When I call my friends on Skype, they hear everything I hear through my headphones. If I listen to music on YouTube, it shows up as microphone input in skype audio settings.
I have searched the forums to no avail, and I have changed possibly all of the sound settings both in Skype and the control panel.

I don't know what sound card I have, nor the name of the software. If needed, how do I find these?

Thank you!

A:Skype sends my audio output to call participants

cant help on the skype issue but, for finding your sound card drivers they will be in device manager, unless you have put in a new sound card then chances are you are running off the integrated motherboard card, if people need it put up what motherboard you have...although i doubt they will, this is more likely to be a skype or microphone setting.

SP2 sends me into a loop of shutting down and restarting. I installed in Aug 2004, and two weeks ago. Both times I had to do a system restore to break the loop.

MSFT tech said to wait until the new Windows XP comes out in March/April, because SP2 will be part of Windows XP.

Any comments or advice is appreciated.
 

A:SP2 sends me into a loop of shutting down and restarting

SP2 has a lot of "things" that come with it. If your OS hasn't been activated, in MS's opinion anyway, it will do what you said.
Your XP cd has a restore feature on it. Have you tried it?
As usual Microsoft tells you to wait until they have a better, $$$, version coming out
soon...

I am still waiting for my copy of W7, due tomorrow. I am wondering, since, I am not going to change partition size, or delete any partitions, I can boot from the hd and still do a clean install. Do you think that this will reduce the possibilty of my encountering the dreaded endless loop?

Welcome to Windows 7 Rich.
Refer to the top of the forum for installation tutorials.
As suggested success is achivable by copying the disk contents on to a partition in C:\ drive, making the partition bootable and running the installation.
For further information refer to the Sticky's at the top of the forum.

No, the big deal started when my computer started acting up. It took longer and longer for it to boot to the desktop, sometimes even a half hour because I had to keep manually turning it off in on in order to get a response. Now my computer won't even go past the "Starting Windows" screen.

Having some trouble with XP starting up. The startup is cought in an endless loop. It gets to the black startupscreen from XP (where you see the blue progress bar) and then restarts my PC again, and again, and again,..... Safe mode doesn't boot either. If I boot from win XP CD I CANNOT choose the repair install, only full install with formatting drives.
I had this problem before, but found no solution on any forum. Had to format everything and re-install XP to solve. This is not an option now because of too much data on PC now.
Can this have anything to do with the volume licence key for XP i'm using?

Hello and welcome Hbj mate first have you backed up the data you have? because I personally don't see any point in cloning the drive to anew one as it has corrupt files.

Have a look at this first though Startup Repair and there is always this Repair Install

The other option is a factory reset on the machine but it will get rid of the data hence me asking if it is backed up.

What I've tried so far;
Every startup repair - restore system to earlier time - disable auto restart in case of failure for hope of a BsoD (I got no bsod) - RAM check ram is fine. - finally my last resort was to use the CD RegBack command in System restore.
And after all that I still have the problem.

Hi all,

I just bought an Asus Eee Box 1501 with Windows 7. When I power it up, it takes me to the first install screen, then gives me an error message saying that the computer wasn't properly shut down, and to press ok to restart it and proceed with the installation. So, I press ok, it reboots, and gives me the same error message, and it won't get out of this loop. Any suggestions? Thanks!

I'm having a problem with a friend's computer. It is an old eMachines T1220 w/ a 1.2Ghz Celeron. I have just installed a new 80GB Maxtor HDD, and am attempting to install Windows XP Home Edition. I changed the boot sequence to read off the CD-ROM first, and the preinstallation files have loaded fine from the disc. My problem is that when the computer reboots, it goes right back into loading the preinstallation files. I have never seen it say "Press any key to boot from the CD." It goes right to "Windows is checking your system's configuration..." or something to that effect. Anyway, when the computer reboots, if I take the CD out of the drive, and let it go straight to the HDD, it says "Operating System not found." If anyone out there can offer some advice, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

A:Endless XP Installation Loop

What medium are you using to attempt this install?

Did you delete all partitions/structures on the drive...before attempting the install?

The only time that I've ever seen an attempted install skip the F8 acceptance (which is key)...it was something weird like the CMOS battery or a RAM issue or a slipstreamed CD that I had not burned correctly (it only happened once and I don't remember just what I did to overcome it). I have multiple disks so it may have been that.

I would first check to see if the BIOS recognizes the hard drive...then I would run a diagnostic on the hard drive.

After having done that to satisfy myself that the drive is properly recognized and in working order...I would insert the XP CD and attempt the install.

It wouldn't hurt to clean the CD used either (plain water, soft cotton cloth (T-shirt), do not rub in circular or oval motion, strainght lines across surface of disk.

The thread title should be descriptive enough, but if not, basically what happens is the computer will load up to the desktop, but then restart again and it continues like that in a constant loop until I turn off the PC.

Anyway, is there anything I can do to fix things? The only thing I can think of is to reformat and reinstall Windows, but I don't have a Windows install disc and I'm not sure exactly how to reformat in the first place. If this is the only option though, I guess I can purchase a new copy of Windows, but I'd prefer not to until I've exhausted ever other option.

Oh, and I'm running Windows XP, by the way. Not sure if it's relevant or not, but I figured I should mention it anyway.

A:stuck in endless loop

You can either check the BIOS of the laptop and check its Boot device priority by continuously tapping F2 or Delete upon turning the laptop on (depending on the BIOS, I'd try F2 first), or try reinstalling the version of Windows you have installed on that particular laptop.

It seems it is having trouble getting to the Windows load process after the Vaio startup screen and never gets a chance to load Windows and offer some kind of error for this problem.

If this does not help you, wait for someone else to offer assistance. This is all I can advise for you to try with the information you provided.

When you formatted the drive, did you also delete the previous partition on the drive? Might be worth a shot. Also make sure the Boot sequence is correct in the BIOS and that it does include the hard drive.

Also, whats the background info for this? Is this a new build or a system you are reformatting and if reformatting were you having other issues before?

Recently got a different laptop and migrated the image to it through the recovery wizard. After fighting to get the thing to boot to the Welcome screen (agp440 mbrfix etc.) I now get an endless loop.

I click the icon to log on, I enter the password and get the message that windows needs to be activated. I click the activate windows now (Im aware I'll have to register or use a diff registration for this machine than my old laptop). NExt I get the message that "windows is already activated".
Then it goes back to the welcome screen. I click logo, enter password......same thing. It's on an endless loop. Rebooting does not help.

Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in Advance

All right in an attempt at reinstalling XP over my current XP installation has gone horribly wrong I was having some problems getting Windows up and could only boot in safe mode So I toyed with msconfig and altered my boot options to where it automatically booted up in Safe Mode with Networking so I wouldn t have to manually do so everytime Well I forgot that I d altered this setting when I put in my XP cd and decided to reinstall windows The installation gets about halfway through and states that it has to reboot to finish Of course when my computer boots in Safe Mode I get an error saying that the Installation can t complete while in Safe Mode and that it s going to reboot again But since my boot ini has been altered it ALWAYS boots in Boot Loop Up Endless Safe Mode Now I can t boot up at all as everytime I turn my computer on it tries to finish the XP setup process with or without the CD in the drive I ve tried to boot off the CD again which leads to the same result I m aware this is a pretty stupid situation I ve gotten myself into and ANY help would be greatly appreciated Thanks

A:Endless Boot Up Loop

Try last known good configuration from the safe mode boot menu. If you get in to safe mode, run msconfig again, under the general tab click the normal startup, and under the boot.ini tab, make sure that safe boot is unchecked.

I have a dell dimention 2400 that had XP home on it. I reloaded with XP Pro a while ago. There was a electric outage and itwet down. When I turn it on it does an endless loop of rebooting. I tried safe mode and last known good config ad still no good. I went to advanced boot and chose no attempt for reboot. After 1 boot try it says unmountable boot volume. I tried to insert the XP Pro cd and boot from it and I get NTdetect failed. Anyone have a clue? Is the hard drive shot? I thought inserting the cd would give me the option th load the OS or repair. Help. Thanks
 

A:Endless loop trying to boot

Are you sure you were booting from the cd and not the HDD? Not being able to boot from the cd won't have anything to do with the condition of the HDD, well it shouldn't anyway. I've seen stranger things. Lets test that theory, dissconnect the HDD and boot from the Windows cd. If it work reconnect and boot from the cd again. You will probably have to do a repair install from the cd which is very easy in xp. A smple google will show you othe steps to do that.

I'm running Windows 7 Premium Home on my Toshiba laptop and it does automatic updates. The problem I'm having is that when the comp boots up and the lock screen comes up, it tries to do the updates, then says that the update has failed and its going to revert the changes, then it reboots and the process starts all over again. I can't get past the lock screen to shut off the automatic updates. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

A:Caught in an endless loop

Can you boot to Safe Mode command prompt? If so you can disable the Windows Update service using the sc command.

If you can get there try this command

sc start=disabled wuauserv

Edit: On my Toshiba Laptop restore points do not work. Therefore I disable Windows Update and use a snapshot rollback program to take the place of restore points. You may have a similar issue.

Boot off of the newly created CD and run the Short and Extended tests on the drive. If either test cannot fix the problem, or fails, then the drive needs to be replaced.

i had to reboot and the program (hitmanpro) had to delete the file at start up.
after the file was deleted i can no longer get to windows. i get the windows logo screen with the scrolling blue bar but after that the computer restarts before i get to the blue welcome screen.

i tried starting in safe mode and found it hangs on MDFSYSNT.SYS (which is linked to macdrive software that i use) and then restarts the computer again in an endless loop.

what can i do?

Greetings:
I am getting the following endless loop when I try to start up my HP Probook laptop. I cannot get into anything or stop it even to try anything.
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is your first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

A:Win 8.1 => 10, problem endless restart loop

I'm sorry this has happened.  I would put in a windows 8.1disk or a third party backup disk or thumb drive such as Macrium reflect or Acronis and boot from one of those. Follow the instructions to retrieve a backup of your operating system. or If you have a Windows backup image of your computer, this would be ideal. You could use your windows 8.1 disk or repair disc to access features that would let you install a backup image, or just fix the boot process if that is all that is needed (I doubt one would be this lucky), and other features that are available. Other than that the last thing you want to hear is do a complete reinstall of your operating system.  But if you haven't made backups, I do not see any alternatives.
 
If you have no idea what I'm talking about, then give Microsoft a call and one of the nice people there can walk you through some smart ways to restore your system. (It was their fault per your comment, so emphasize that if they ask for a credit card.  However, I bet they do it free for you because they help people free with installation issues.. This is my experience.  Good luck.

Hey everyone,

this is my first time on the forum. I have a dell dimension 3000 , p4, 512 ram running windows xp. It has been working flawlessly for the last 2 years. I recently decided to try to use the standby and hibernate mode. After one day of these settings I came back to the computer and tried turning it on.. Nothing! I restarted it and a note came on the screen that a file nadtl32 ? not 100 % sure of that. could not be found. I went on to some sight and it gave me the solution. I promptly went back to the computer and did what it said. The computer started and then it gave me a blue screen. i shut it down and restarted and it just seems to be in a continuous loop of the windows startup screen coming on and then restarts again.
Any thoughts or help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance,,tile4fun

You have a root kit virus, the best thing to do is to wipe the drive and do a fresh install of XP. If you could get into Safe Mode with Networking you could download some malware removal tools, but if you can't then it's best to format and start again.

A:c000021a & the endless boot loop

I would personally start with chkdsk /r from an XP CD or a burned RC ISO. It fixes some broken files as well as sectors and whole clusters and might just find something in Security Descriptors that's getting in the way. After that, I'd go in with - in your case Knoppix - and bin all the rubbish from all User Accounts, including SystemProfile and checkthe sates of the last created .old or .sav versions of System, SAM and Software in case what I've already done doesn't make the system work and I need to revert to those files.

Windows Action Center displays this error:
Restart to repair drive errors

We found errors on a drive. To repair these errors and prevent loss of data, restart your PC now. The repair could take a while to complete.
The restart completes (doing very rapid checks), and after a minute or so Action Center displays the same error again. This happens every time I start the computer. Sometimes the computer boots straight to the Start screen, and sometimes it boots to a blue screen with the option of sending a report to Microsoft before completing the boot. Sometimes it sends a report with no action required.

I have checked the hard drive using PC Checkup with MyDell, and with TuneUp Utilities, and no errors are reported. Using CHKDSK C: /f /r /x does not complete, but gets stuck at 13%.

I have also used chkdsk to check the two USB external drives that I use, and no errors are found.

[Windows 8.1]

A:Restart to Repair, but endless loop follows

Hi, just saw this.. you've probably solved it by now.

Searching on your error message offers (for example):
Check disk (Chkdsk) runs when you start Windows 8 or Windows 7
"Restart to repair drive errors" keep showing up after reboot - Microsoft Community

You could also try running CHKDSK from a boot CD/DVD.

It would also help if you can identify which disk/partition - if more than one- is being flagged.

Good luck, dalchina

This morning, July 31, I started a restart of my computer. During the normal shutdown the notice that the system was installing Microsoft updates came up that three updates were going to be installed.

For over six hours my Windows Vista Home Edition software has been in an endless loop that starts with a message on the screen that states:

Configuring updates: Stage 3 of 3 - 0% complete, Do Not Turn Off Computer.

I have tried to start in safe mode with networking and the same message appears and the endless loop process starts all over again.

Is there a way to stop this process? If so how?

Boot disk is recognized properly incl size (checked in BIOS). I tried safe mode but there it just gets stuck while loading and the boot disk (intel g2 80 gb ssd) makes some noise, coil whine.

What are my options to be able to actually read the result from chkdsk?

A:the dreaded endless rebooting loop

Before I wasted time trying to reformat the hard drive...I'd run the appropriate long diagnostic on it. Sounds to me as if that might be the problem.I would also slave it to a second system...and see if Event Viewer features any "disk" or "drive" errors.Of course...I would move any desired data files from it before doing any of this.The other alternative is consider the possibility that the file structure is damaged...usually, XP will indicate such with an error message of some type. Not sure what an "in-place upgrade" is, but if it's a repair install...then that only removes Windows from consideration as the culprit.

PC is a Dell Inspiron all in one running Win 7 64 bit home premium (I think). When I power it up, I get informed the last boot didn't complete and can choose between starting the Launch Repair Service or Starting Windows Normally. Choosing the repair service results in it hanging. Choosing the normal start results in a reboot and ending up where I just started.

Safe mode doesn't work. And I don't have a recovery disk or an install disk (only one of my four machines that I don't have the disk, go figure). I tried booting the last known good configuration but that just started another reboot.

I'm out of ideas. Any help would be much obliged.

The problem then started, the reset went fine until it reached 64% and read "configuring settings" then it just restarted my PC and went in a loop like this;
>startup
>bios screen (Asus/Intel)
>monitor turns off
>monitor turns back on
>blue win10 logo and loading circle
>black screen for 5-10 secs
>install screen displaying 64%
>restarts and loops

Well...you contradict somewhat in what you state, it seems .Does the system boot into Windows in normal mode?Does it boot into safe mode?The blinking cursor on XP...typically indicates a damaged MBR. Normal cure for this is to use the XP Recovery Console and run the fixmbr command...but this is not suggested for persons with OEM systems (due to nonstandard nature of the boot structure for those systems).Since you indicate that you have a Gigabytes board...does that mean that you also have a MS Genuine XP CD?If so, then I suggest reading Black Screen (fixmbr) - http://support.microsoft.com/?scid=kb;en-us;314503.As for the reboots...we need more info.Go to Control Panel/Performance & Maintenance/System...Advanced tab. a. At the bottom of the tab...click the Error Reporting button. Make sure that Enable Error Reporting is chosen and check marks are in the two options. Click OK on that particular tab only. b. On the Advanced tab, just above Error Reporting...click the Settings button. On the Startup & Recovery tab...under System Failure, checks in first two options, no check in the third option. Under Write Debugging Information...you want "complete memory dump" reflected, along with %SystemRoot%\MEMORY.DMP.<<It is almost like during the removal of the virus, my system files were corrupted.>>That happens routinely...for that matter, any file may become damaged routinely...it's only when it becomes obvious that we guess that such has occurred.

Hi, folks. I've had lots of success mining the forums here for virus/malware assistance here, so thought I'd try with a new problem.
My Dell Latitude D620 running WinXP SP2 will suddenly will not boot up properly.

When I power it on, I get a black screen saying that Windows did not shut down properly, and offers me a variety of choices, from Safe Mode to Last Known Configuration to Start Windows Normally.
Regardless of which I choose, eventually a blue screen with white text appears, just for a second or 2, too fast to read anything, and then I get returned to the original black screen. And so on, until I simply power down.

I do not have any of the original disks for this machine, and nothing has been changed on it.
This just started happening about 2 nights ago for no reason I can identify.

Thanks in advance for any assistance,

Twice System Restore has reported success, yet I immediately end up booting back into the Startup Repair loop.

I am given no options - when I try F8 I'm simply tossed back into Startup Repair. I'm thinking there may be a command prompt way out of the loop, but I'm clueless in that area.
