Preferred Solution: Vista will not reboot with new motherboard

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.)

Hello there,

I'm looking for some help with getting my PC to work after a motherboard replacement.

I have installed a new board, Z170XP-SLI with an i7 processor, purchased built and tested. Having connected all the bits back up and switched on it appears to be running as it boots to the windows repair screen, and then says that it is unable to carry out repairs. I suspect that I need to install some drivers but am at a loss as to how to do this. Not sure what to do next, other than seek some expert help.

Thanks.

If you can get to the bios, make the first boot option DVD and try the Repair option directly from your Windows disc.

I upgraded to a new motherboard/cpu and now xp will reboot soon as it goes to show the xp logo. It doesn't matter if I boot into normal or safe mode. I think the problem may be that I don't have the drivers for the new motherboard loaded? Is there an easy fix or can I get the new drivers on there without having to boot xp? I'm thankful for any advice.

Let me guess; you transfered the hard drive from the old motherboard/cpu to the new motherboard/cpu without reinstalling xp?

A:Power to Motherboard causes reboot?

I was trying a reformat with Vista Eternity x64 again last night -->
Installed the driver for the GPU and was installing windows update and browsing the website - when the computer rebooted without the BSOD even though I disable auto reboot at system failure. No other drivers were installed such as for my sound card etc.

So does this rule out that the sound card could be the cause of the reboots and that likely the power supplied to the Motherboard could be the issue?

Anyhow I have given up and re-installed windows 7 x64 7600...

The following actions carried out ? Installed the drivers for GPU and sound card, anti virus (Kaspersky), regcure, Tune-up utilities, Xoftspy, Ccleaner, Microsoft office 2010, Winrar and Windows updates.

All seems to be running good and I can take control over the sound card to change the configuration of it --> game mode, entertainment mode etc and can control it using the hub - 3d effects volume control etc etc.

Created a restore point and went bed ^^

Tonight I will install the rest of the software - such as Batman Arkham Asylum and see if the computer reboots and make logs on what software I install / what actions I took before I lose the ability to take control of the sound card configuration and random reboot.

The one issue I am betting on is the power supplied to the motherboard, BUT I cannot rule this out as I need to get extra PSU 4 Pin Molex cables and they hard to get.

Regards

A:New Motherboard/Fresh Windows 10 Install Problem After Reboot

It is supposed to reboot to the SSD. Try the F11 key again, and try each entry for the SSD, there will probably be two. One will start with UEFI (like UEFI hard drive or UEFI SSD), the other will probably be Windows boot manager or it might be hard drive or SSD without the UEFI in front of it.

A:reboot and select a proper boot device also motherboard changed

It's rare that Win7 will boot with a mobo change because the hardware difference is too great. But you may be able to adjust it using this boot disk to Adjust Win7 to boot on new hardware with Paragon Adaptive Restore CD.

I doubt whether activation will hold though because change of mobo almost always causes deactivation, and once you change mobos the Product Key on COA sticker no longer will work because the hardware change is considered too great - unless you change the mobo to the same model.

It's possible that it may by a fluke hold activation, or that MS may allow it if you use Phone Activation after it deactivates and rejects the key.

Hi, i`m a newbie here. I recentlly had some HORRIBLE internet slow speed issue, LOONg story short after much money and multiple people, I did a simple system restore and my speeds were back to FAST!!! However I did this cause I read somewhere on Google ( or this forum ) that after downloading some updates that happens. So NOW, what the hell do I do. Do I allow Vista to Automatically download uptades again?, and risk screwing it all up again, or do I just buy Windows 7? Any input is Appreciated.

My PC was running slow, and I had not shut it down in awhile, so I shut it down and restarted it, hoping it would run faster. When I restarted it, it would not reboot and the error code "0xc000014c" came up. I do not have a restore CD for Vista. So I tried holding F8 down, then tried rebooting with a command prompt of sfc/scannow. It did nothing. Then, I downloaded a restore CD from Microsoft, put it in, but it would do nothing. What else can I do? I do not have the Vista disc because the PC was given to me as is.

My system was up and running. My wife was on a news website and it froze. She went to restart the computer, it starts to, self checks, then goes to reboot from CD. Put in the recovery disk and nothing happens.Click to expand...

Not quite sure what you mean by this. Does it ask you to reboot from the CD drive, or just tries on its own to reboot from there?

What happens if there is no disk in the CD drive?

OK...this is not my first rodeo, but dang it, I'm missing something...

Wife's laptop...Toshiba Satellite AMD Turion X2 64 bit with 3G ram...

Was running Vista Home 32 bit.

Clean install of Win 7 64 bit...

Gets through all steps, boots up, desktop looks good, install to "important" updates...all working great.
Reboot...BOD....
Ran start up repair, no go...
Retried the install again...same thing...

Thoughts?

A:BOD on first reboot after install...Vista 32 - Win 7 64

Never mind...checked with Toshiba's site and it was the laptop bios...
Updated now and reinstalling....

On a Dell E6500 after windows updates are installed the computer goes into a reboot loop. The user trying to log on has administrative rights. If we switch users to another user that has administrative rights and disable the UAC the first user can then log on normally. This seems to occur only after windows updates are installed. Any ideas. I am not a trained tech, so please respond in simple terms. Thank you.

Had this problem sevral times, hold down the power button for 30 seconds, if that does not work,

unplug the computer and remove the battery. Let it sit for 30 minutes and try again.

My partners' laptop a HP Pavillion dv5 last night just crashed on him and was coming up with an error after letting it reboot loop a number of times it gave him the option to system restore (at no point did it give an option for starting in safe mode). Now it runs as though windows is going to boot then goes onto a black screen with the error message - 'Windows could not complete the installation. To install Windows on this computer restart the installation.' If you click ok it reboots the system and does the same thing over again, if you press the x at the top of the box it takes you to the main screen with icons for a couple of seconds, flashes up with an error message and restarts. The error message doesnt stay on the screen for long enough to see what the code is. Please help.

Guys,

OS: Windows Vista Ultimate

I recently (2 days back) got a Dell XPS 1330 laptop. After installing the updates from MS website, when I rebooted, after the bios load, I get the blue screen of death and the laptop automatically reboots.

Strangely enough, the laptop boots up fine once I turn it off and turn it back on... is that not strange?

My main concern is that it could be a hardware fault? Here is the attached 'dump' file from the windows directory. Any help would be most appreciated.

Oh and one more thing, is it normal to have almost 10sec bios loading as my laptop takes that long!!! Just doesnt sound normal to me...

Kind regards,

2 9600GT 1GB vc.
At first the system ran ok,
then I got a... video driver stopped responding error
then memory dump crashes started to happen.
I thought it was because of the video cards being SLI and the mb is crossfire type that triggered the problems.
I bought a new Asus P5N-T Deluxe mb and replaced the Abit mb.
After booting up with the new Asus mb, it worked for a short time
now it won't boot up at all after I got the latest windows updates last week!
It is now in constant reboot mode!
Can't go into normal boot, safe mode with networking or safe mode at all.
I tried to use the DVD to repair it,
ended with a message of...window is fixed and should be able to boot message.
But when it boot up, it will go only as far as the Vista window with the horizontal scrolling bar then to an abrupt stop
then blue screen which is so fast and I can't read the error messages.
I tried for over a week using various methods to get in to backup my information and failed.
Last weekend, out of desparation, I installed Vista on one of the backup drive and everything was fine until I got the latest update and now it TOO is doing the constant reboot thing!
I do not want to reinstall Vista onto the original drive which will wipe out all the information I have on it now.
Anyone has any idea as how to get the drive to boot so I can back up my information prior to reformat and reinstall Vista?
Just for kick, I tested the Abit mb on my wife computer with the exact same set up except only one 1GB video card and it's working fine with only 1 crash after installation of the latest deadly windows update.
I had to use her DVD to repair it then it is still working after a week!
I guess it was Windows fault all along! Thank you!



Remove all your memory except for 1 stick. Reinstalling to the second drive , set your options for auto update during install to NO. When you are up and running - Have you checked to see what the updates you are installing are. Video Card Drivers and Audio Drivers are generally less of a problem if you download them directly from the Manufacturers websit. Check your update settings. They should on check for updates but let me choose what to install. Hide driver updates.

Hi -

Please run msinfo32 so I can take a quick look at a few things -

msinfo32 - save as an NFO file
START | type msinfo32 | save in default NFO file format - you'll see the NFO file extension when you go to save it

Are you looking to restore the system to factory default settings (factory image) - the way it was when you took it out of the box and first booted-up?

If so, what problems are you having?

Hi acr1127,

We can try few steps. Try to go in safe mode and check if you are able to login in safe mode. Please use the following link for detailed instructions to go safe mode: Safe Mode

Check if the computer is working fine in safe mode.

Also, run the built-in diagnostics provided by the manufacturer on the computer to check if the hardware is working fine.

Please post back with the results.

try using system restore to restore your system to any previous date
also check your system for viruses using latest antivirus definitions
as you have mentioned magic dvd ripper cannot be the cause to this problem

A:Vista won't reboot in safe mood or normally

Hello,

It sounds as if this may be a hardware problem. Could you try testing your RAM and hard drive?

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...memtest86.html

To test the hard drive, use the DOS version of SeaTools.

After a full powerdown, Vista reboots into the inital Setup routine instead of logging in as normal. I getthe screens asking me for timezone, language etc, followed by "Create User ID" i.e Vista is reinstalling itself.

Any suggestions as to a) why this is happening and b) how to fix it would be very gratefully received!

Thanks....

A:Vista reverts to Setup on reboot

Hi,

Did the install finish the first time?
Have you ever completed the install routine?

You need to complete it!

Post back if that is the issue i.e. you cannot complete the install because it keeps rebooting & repeating the same functions/ requests again & again?

I sure hope your new pc came with Vista preloaded...

If so, call the pc vendor and see what they can do for you.

There are already al lot of thread about Vista hanging "without" reasons. Just use the search option. Keep knowledge bundled! Look into your logfiles (admin tools) and see if you have the same issues. The worst of all is often... nothing to do about it if MS keeps ignoring the problems!:

System restore if possible.

Doing the repair may have knocked out your system restore ability. If you can, backup all your data that you cannot afford to lose, run system restore and go back to a date before you installed the PowerISO software.

How did you get that, nltdr is for XP, unless you have a duel-boot. If so, are you able to boot into any OS?

I keep a USB MultiCard reader plugged in the back USB port at all times. I'm trying out Vista ReadyBoost feature. It works. However when I have to reboot (for whatever reason) the post process hangs at checking memory (probably doesn't check memory on soft boot). The next post process would be to look for installed IDE drives. Nothing happens after the motherboard version is displayed. With the USB cardreader unplugged, the reboot/post process proceeds as normal. Almost normal anyway, there is a short lag before the ide drives are detected. Why would a USB device interfere with a soft boot post in the first place? Is there something specific to multicard readers? Is it a voltage detection problem? Thanks in advance for answering.

Hi there I've been around here but Upgrade before failing 7 right reboot Vista 1st to I haven't posted much I have Vista SP Ultimate installed onto a Laptop and I'm trying to update to Windows Ultimate SP Both -bit I have done this dozens of times and Vista to 7 Upgrade failing right before 1st reboot I thought I had seen all of the things that could go wrong this is a new one on me I have checked the hard drive for errors and it's clean and I also ran the Seagate Sea Tools on the HDD and no errors were reported for the disk The Vista installation has been inundated with viruses which I cleaned all out using Malwarebytes and Eset But I may have missed something Originally I thought the problem was with a small recovery partition that existed at the beginning of the drive which I deleted I expanded the Vista partition to the full size of the partition I thought that in itself may have been a problem because I always see a mb partition in any Windows installation I make and if I tried to install into a partition that was fully used it would fail So I tried again Vista to 7 Upgrade failing right before 1st reboot after I made an area of mb of partitioned space at the start of the drive which also created a mb unallocated space at the end of the Vista partition- Same error It goes through all of the upgrade steps then it starts to copy over the Windows files It processes the first two steps- It copies the Windows installation files then it collects info on the system right but it fails right at that spot and I get a message that the upgrade was cancelled and that Windows could not set up the boot drive But when I reboot it actually starts the Setup again but fails I can get back into Vista at that point and try again It has failed about four times and I've never seen an upgrade do this particular thing anyone got any ideas My update disk is bad Or do I need to partition my HDD differently

Whenever I install updates to Vista Home Premium with Sp 1, I get a hang up during reboot. Only holding down the start button, killing the system, then restarting will work. On the first restart, I get the DOS screen "Start normally" or "Attempt to fix". If I try and Fix, it may show the "Installing 3 of 3 updates" notice and then start but just as often it hangs there forever. I can get a notice sometimes that a patch is preventing the system from booting. Any ideas on where to start? I've turned off automatic updates so at least it only does it when I am at the computer and allow the updates manually.

My situation: New HP Media Center PC with Vista Home Premium pre-installed.
The problem: The PC freezes up completely at seemingly random intervals. I could be using a browser, trying to watch a DVD, checking my e-mail, working in Word or anything and the computer just stops responding. The keyboard and mouse are completely unresponsive and the only thing I can do is a hard reboot. There are no error messages or anything else to indicate what caused the lock-up. My USB ports still seem active (external hub lights remain on).  Because Vista is OEM supplied, I have to use HP tech support and I can't even get them to understand what the problem is, let alone make any useful suggestions as to how I might fix it.  I see from other threads here that other people have had similar problems. Has anyone managed ot figure out what's goin on and fix it?

A:Vista Freezes Up - Can Do Nothing But Hard Reboot

VISTA FREEZE PROBLEM SOLVED! I don't know if this will help anyone else, but I'll give all the steps I was given and what eventually worked.
 
Gateway customer service asked me to do the following:
-Run windows recovery utilities in right after BIOS loads (on a gateway, it's F8 right after starting the PC). This didn't solve my problem, but may help you. Most users propobly don't know those tools exist.
-We tried rolling back to an earlier recovery point... but we couldn't get it to work.
-As mentioned before, we pulled the memory out to ensure not static charge.
-Finally (this seems to be what did the trick), we went into MSCONFIG, deactivated everything, and I read each item to Gateway tech support, who told me what to check and what not to check (basically, anything with Microsoft, Intel, or our Virus Scan/Firewall programs were allowed to remain, everything else was deactivated). It now seems to work just fine! I've got to put in a good plug for Gateway's customer support... they really did help with this.
 
Hope this helps someone!

I have a new computer; OS Windows Vista Home Premium.

I have noticed that on a couple of occasions whilst I'm browsing the web or viewing emails, suddenly I get a message saying do you want to save the tabs, before I can barely read this notice and no time to respond, the computer closes all windows, logs me off, says its configuring updates and then shuts down. It then reboots and I have to log in again.

The system is set to install updates automatically, but is it normal for Vista to just suddenly shut down and reboot, leaving no time to respond and save work.

My old computer running XP OS would only update and then do the configuring stuff when I shut down.

cheers for any comments.

A:Vista CHKDSK at reboot URGENT

Hi, do you have a copy of the Vista dvd? If not, do you have the dell recovery disk? We need to get to a command prompt. With the Vista dvd set boot device to cd rom drive first in bios and boot from the Vista dvd. Go past the language setup and select the option "repair your computer" you will get to advanced options select command prompt. If you only have the dell boot with it in the drive and from the beginning of the post tap F12 key select "tools PC Restore" then up down arrows to select "command prompt"

At the command prompt type the following commands:- (NOTE all commands are typed without the quotes) assumes windows is on C
? fsutil dirty query c: ? Press enter this queries the drive, and more than likely it will tell you that it is dirty. Next, type ?CHKNTFS /X C:? Press enter the X tells Windows to NOT check that particular drive (C) on the next reboot. At this time, manually reboot your computer, it should not do a Chkdsk and take you directly toWindows.

Once Windows has fully loaded, bring up another CMD prompt and type and now you want to do a Chkdsk manually by typing ?Chkdsk /f /r c:?. This should take you through 5 stages of the scan and will unset that dirty bit. Finally, type ?fsutil dirty query c:? and Windows will confirm that the dirty bit is not set on that drive.

I was installing vista and it did one of it's reboots, and now it goes to that screen with the loading green lines and just reboots. Is there a way I can fix this or boot into safe mode or something.

vista running computer keeps rebooting, I press F12 to change the start up sequence to reboot from the disk drive but the selection doesn't move and the computer freezes on that screen. How can I get this computer working again. How can I get the computer reboot from the disk drive.

A:computer running vista keeps on trying to reboot

While the computer is powered down remove all peripherals except your keyboard and mouse. Try tapping the F8 key (in 1 second intervals after you power it on) during startup until you get the advanced startup options. Select "last known good configuration" and hit enter. Let us know how this goes. message edited by btk1w1

I have a machine that turned off in the middle of use the other day and now when it boots up it opens into a "my documents" window. Everything other than than this window is blacked out. Does this sound like a malware/virus problem, or something caused by OS?

I'm good at fixing things in XP, but this is my first attempt at Vista so suggestions and diagnostic tips would be appreciated.

I'm running Vista Home Premium Version 6 (Build 6000) 32-bit SP2.

Vista does not save my customized cursor changes after I reboot. I change the
cursors and they stay changed until I reboot, then they go back to the
default Windows Aero scheme.

Also, when I'm in the Pointers tab of the Mouse Properties screen, the
Apply button is grayed out (disabled/unavailable/I cannot click it). I can only change the cursors by clicking the OK button.

I have found many posts with this same issue (also on Vista Business) and no fixes for it. I have been dealing with this since I got my Vista laptop back in April 2008 and it is very annoying since it seems like it's such a simple thing.

Does anyone have a clue how to fix this? Thanks.

A:Vista Resets Cursors After Reboot

PROBLEM SOLVED: Never mind, I thought I had the custom cursors in the Windows/Cursors folder, but I didn't. (For years I could put them in any folder.) Once I moved them there, now they save after reboot.

Although someone else said they've experienced this problem when Vista returns from Sleep mode. I'm hoping that doesn't happen to me after I finally "solved" the problem.

Hi! Hope I'm posting in the right place, I really need help.
I've been using visual styles for Vista for a month or so and everything was fine until I stupidly started poking around and broke something. Now whenever I boot or reboot my computor, it starts loading the style I selected before rebooting but then it immediately switches back to the default style. I've tried re-patching with VistaGlazz, I've removed WindowBlinds so there'd be no conflict, but nothing fixes it.
Help me pretty please?

No? Could someone maybe point me to where I might get some help? I'd really appretiate it!

A:Reboot loop during windows 7 and vista installation

Same problem with 2 different OS's suggests a hardware problem to me.

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests. They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:

There are many instances of this problem reported on the net, but no real solutions. It is possible the problem is not related to Vista per ce but is in a driver. What programs do you have loaded. Does the problem occur when switching one way? ie User A to B, but not from User B to A. Is the reboot associated with a blue screen?
