After repair to hinge, system won't start

Question: After repair to hinge, system won't start

I just get a brief glimpse of the Windows 7 logo and it reboots. I've tried the repair option but that fails, with either the internal HD or by using the installation DVD.

I cannot boot into safe mode. The only drive I see with command prompt is x:\

I removed the battery and the HD and sent the laptop in for a repair to one of the hinges on the display. When I got it back, I put it all back together and voila... it won't boot. It won't repair. It won't boot to safe mode. I can't run chkdsk.

The only option I see right now is to remove the HD and see if I can pull off the data using an external drive enclosure. Then reinstall Windows7 and all the programs and data.

Any other options I have overlooked?

Preferred Solution: After repair to hinge, system won't start

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

Answer: After repair to hinge, system won't start

Clearing the CMOS may be worth a shot. Remove the battery and power adapter then press and hold the power button for 15-20 seconds.

HiI have a 6 month old MESH desk top with Windows 7 and have had no issues to date and i have billguardThis evening i cant boot up, it goes straight to Windows RE, Start Up repair which cant solve the problem. From the test the root cause found: The operating system is incompatible with start up repair.Cant get into sfae made on start up either. any ides would be appreciated, thank you.

Answer:Op System incompatible with start up Repair

A computer running Windows Vista/7 can automatically fail over into the on-disk Windows RE only if a boot failure is detected. At startup, the Windows loader sets a status flag to indicate that the boot process has started, and this flag is typically cleared before the Windows logon screen is displayed. If the boot attempt fails, the flag is not cleared. The next time the computer starts, the loader detects the flag and assumes that a boot failure occurred. When this happens, the loader launches Windows RE instead of Windows Vista/7Because the failover mechanism relies on the Windows boot manager and Windows boot loader, some failures will render Windows RE inaccessible. In the following scenarios, the user must use bootable Windows RE media to recover the computer: * Disk metadata corruption in the master boot record (MBR), partition table, or boot sector of Windows RE partition. * Missing or corrupt boot manager. * Missing or corrupt boot configuration data.Sometimes the boot status flag cannot be read or written to by the boot loader, in which case Windows will not automatically fail over into Windows RE. However, the user can still manually launch into the on-disk Windows RE through the F8 menu.

How I got to this point is a little odd. I hope forum members can help get me out of it.

The computer is a Dell XPS 15 9530. It was upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1, with Dragon and Skype working before and after the upgrade. The computer crashed, and was repaired by Dell. After the repair, I installed Dragon and Skype again, and both worked with an Andrea WNC 1500 wireless headset that uses a USB dongle . I use Dragon a lot and Skype occasionally.

Then Dragon started complaining about the quality/level of the sound from the microphone. I checked the microphone from within Dragon, and also (IIRC) from Windows Sound Recognition.

At some point, the Windows Speech Recognition "Set Up Microphone" generated an error window that I've never seen before on any computer. At the top of the window is "Window could not launch". then "Window could not start, and then "make sure your audio hardware is working and check your audio configuration in the Audio Devices and Sound Themes control panel."

Answer:Audio Wizard could not start after system repair and all OK

I fixed it! here is roughly what I did in case others can benefit from my experience. "Roughly" because there were quite a few steps and missteps, and I'm not sure exactly what all fixed it.

The main thing was several files in \windows\system32, and one in \windows\system32\drivers, all published by Andrea. By comparing with the other system that worked, and some archaic information on the Andrea Communications site, I was able to confirm that there were no drivers from Andrea needed. Deleting the files was complicated – I had to change ownership from TrustedInstaller for the folders, delete the files, and then restore ownership. I cleaned up with CCleaner, and eventually the USB dongle was recognized – although not as an audio device. I use the Windows device diagnostic tool to update the driver, and by selecting USB audio device (not Andrea), the headset moved into sound, video and game controllers. Then I was able to run the audio wizard, and finally get Dragon working again.

I still have Unknown USB Device (Device Descriptor Request Failed) , which may be related to this – perhaps the headset is not fully Windows 10 compliant. But I'm not sure about that, and I need to get back to real work.

Hello there, I'm sadiew. I got a HP Pavilion laptop that's been acting up and I hope you guys can lend me a hand.

Yesterday: I got my laptop back after ~3 weeks to get a fan replaced. It loaded kind of slow but not terribly. Some shortcuts were missing the programs but it was few and I just reinstalled. Avast caught two viruses when I was reinstalling anti-malwarebytes so I cancelled it. Driverbooster (iobit) found and installed 30+ dirvers. Otherwise my computer was a little slow but normal.

Today: Computer went up to the starting screen and it just hung there. I can do safemode and w/ command prompt. I restarted it and tried system repair but it did nothing.

What I've tried (don't remember the order)
1). chkdsk /f for c: and /r for d: and c:. C: was found and had no problems apparently, but it also had some error communicating with the log or something.
2). trying to restore but no restore points (even though I had iObit make one a few days ago)
3). Ran my anti-viruses in safemode. The only program that found anything was TKSS root killer. Wasn't able to remove them tho as the comp was responding too slowly.
4). Tried booting with last successful settings but it didn't do anything
5) Bootlogging, which leads me to...

Now: somehow my computer started up. I think it may be because I just waited a lot longer to turn comp off so I could see what bootlog got. It loaded insanely slow and there is still something wrong. But everything is going at normal speed now ... Read more

Answer:Hanging on start up, system repair no go, sometimes works

Hello Sadie and welcome to Seven Forums. Sorry to hear you're having these problems.

Since you've indicated there may be some malware on your computer, I'd see if your installed anti-malware programs can remove whatever is infecting your machine. It may take a longer than normal time to run the scans but as long as the software is still scanning/removing I'd be patient and see if will finish (even if it takes several hours.) You could also try running a free software called Malwarebytes. (Always make sure to read the fine print on any downloads so you don't accidentally install unwanted "stuff" like toolbars, other software, etc.)

https://www.malwarebytes.org/free/

I'd also try running a System File Checker scan from an elevated command prompt (Option Two.) If problems are found, run the scan at least 3 times and reboot your computer immediately following each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

It's also possible that an application or service is interfering with a normal start up. You could do a Clean Boot (AKA Clean Startup) and try to isolate any offenders.

Troubleshoot Application Conflicts by Performing a Clean Startup

And one of the Forum experts prepared a troubleshooting guide with some additional things to try.

I have been able to retrieve all of my personal info from the hard drive so now it is just a matter of getting the OS to run properly/get the laptop running.

edit - I did this by removing the hard drive and using USB to transfer files to desk top computer.

Everything was working fine with my laptop, had just installed some new antivirus software and ran a full scan and everything was fine. A couple days ago I powered up and received this pop up stating that "Start up repair is checking your system for problems." Then it says that start up cannot automatically fix your problem. Sounds like the same thing that another poster has in the "Major Problem" topic, but I don't really understand the fix. I think he is saying to use a reboot disc to repair? The computer will not boot is basically the problem. I would appreciate any suggestions. . . Thanks, Rc

Answer:Start up repair is checking your system for problems. . .

what was the AV you installed?

and do you have basic hardware specs? HD size and amount available, RAM,and processor ...just to make sure it's adequate for VISTA.

did yours come with restore disks or are you "on board" recovery?

Did this comp come with VISTA or was it upgraded? if upgraded what was the original OS?

Hey guys, I've been looking all over the internet to find a solution, but failed to find any. I hope you can help me out.

A couple of days ago, I fell asleep in front of my notebook (Asus X54H, which I have for about a year now) and when I woke up, I couldn't connect with the wireless. Hoping it would solve anything so I didn't have to go downstairs to fix it, I decided to restart my notebook. I don't recall seeing a BSOD, but after it showed the Asus logo, there was nothing, just a black screen. This time, I timed how long it took, and after 7 minutes it said: "Windows is loading files". This doesn't take too long, but then I get a black screen again, but this time with a cursor for about a minute. Then I get the Windows 7 background with the cursor and after a minute or two, the System Recovery Options screen appears. There I'm asked to select a keyboard input method (which is Belgian (period) in my case). When I click on next, another window gives me two possibilities:

- Use recovery tools that can help fix problems starting Windows. Select an operating system to repair.
- Restore your computer using a system image that you created earlier.

As I didn't create any system images, I go for the first one. As there aren't any operating systems loaded, it tells me to click on the Load drivers button. As I don't have a clue what I should do choosing Load drivers, I just click on next. Then the following options are presented to me:

- Startup Repair
- System Restore

Ok, I have been combing through threads here hoping to find a solution, but none of the things I've tried have worked, so I'm going out on a limb hoping for some suggestions!

I have a Samsung netbook (n145) which has had a few issues starting up over the past couple months - it would prompt to run chkdsk before booting, I would let it run, and it would boot. However, yesterday I got the 'windows failed to start - a recent hardware change may be responsible' error message, and giving the option to try starting windows normally (which fails: there is a flash of BSOD and then screen goes black, and computer restarts, arriving at same 'failed to start' error). The other option is to run system repair, which also does not work: it takes ages to bring up a dialog box that searches for errors, but I have let this run for hours and it remains stuck. Tapping f4 to bring up samsung recovery also results in a stuck screen. Tapping f8 to boot to safe mode does not work either.

My main concern is having a working computer, and I can't really afford costly repairs or a new netbook. I got this one used about 1 1/2 years ago and it has no cd drive/OS boot disk (windows 7 starter came already installed). What should I do? Can I fix the hard drive, or should I replace?

Hello, I've been having a very annoying problem with my Windows 7 home premium sony vaio fw series laptop. I clicked on shutdown as usual and left my computer to shut down instead of watching it shutdown. Today I tried to turn on my computer and it gives me two options: start windows normally or start system repair. Starting windows normally doesn't do anything and when I clicked on system repair it just keeps going in an infinite loop meaning it says that system repair cannot find the problem and gives me the option to send data to windows to help solve problems like this in the future. Thing is, I can't use safe mode nor can I open command prompt. F8 doesn't work either. I don't have an installation cd or a boot disc as I recieved this pc as a gift. The latest major program I downloaded that was experiencing problems was Samsung Kies. Can someone help me to start windows so I can at least access command prompt or something?

Answer:Windows won't start at all, system repair fails to do any good

Edit: Where I typed system repair, I did mean startup repair. I am currently typing this all out on my android smartphone so you can imagine how painstakingly difficult this all is. ( ps. I've figured out that windows will not boot and that I haven't created a backup for my files.]

I'm trying to make a system repair disk for another computer. When I click "create now" the bar fills up a tiny bit and it says "Preparing files..." Several hours later, the computer's still preparing files and absolutely nothing has happened.
The computer I'm making it for gets to the windows welcome screen and says "Preparing to configure windows... do not turn off your computer." and just restarts at that point. It repeats this process forever.
What's going on? How can I make a system repair disk? Is there an ISO that I can image to make one? - since the computer is just refusing to continue. Any help would be great, thanks in advance

Answer:Create system repair disk hangs right at the start

You can use the Windows 7 DVD.

My Grandmother's computer was infected with System Repair.  It would start normally, but right after log in system repair would take over and send the fake alert that there was a problem with the hard drive.  All the desktop icons were hidden except for the system repair icon, no taskbar icons were visible, and the start menu didn't show anything except system repair and the log off/shut down options.   
 
Following the instructions for the Remove System Repair (uninstall Guide), I restarted the computer and put it in safe mode with networking.  Safe mode blocked the system repair fake alerts from popping up, but none of the desktop icons were visible except system repair and the start menu was still only showing system repair and log off/shut down.  I accessed internet explorer using windows + r and entering "iexplore", downloaded and ran RKill.  Under miscellaneous checks it found the SMTMP folder and it also said something I no longer recall exactly about ZeroAccess.  Next I downloaded and ran TDSSKiller, which found a number of problems and required a restart.
 
After that restart, I reran both Rkill and TDSSKiller, then downloaded MBAM and attemted to install it.  It would start to install, then terminate right at the end of the installation.  I tried to get around this by renaming the malwarebytes setup program, which didn't work.  I eventually located and installed malwarebytes chameleon program, whi...

So my computer won't turn on now thanks to the infamous faulty hinge design which ended up breaking the plastic on the left side and one of the little bolts ended up causing the complete malfunction of the fan.The last message I got was that the computer had to shut down because due to the fact that the fan no longer worked.So now my question is, where can I get this fixed? How much does HP charge? It is out of warranty but still this shouldn't have happened, they should at least repair my computer for low cost. It really is a great computer but how much to get this fixed? Who can fix this fan and get it running again?I tried and can't get all the pieces taken apart at the keyboard. I need to replace the fan and maybe some of the other plastic pieces though I heard HP way overcharges. I would rather fix this excellent computer than have to buy a new one.Also where can someone find used parts for these dv7's?

Answer:Windows Vista will not start, System Repair unable to fix problems

I am no expert on Vista but it sounds like you could have hard drive problems, in which case your first priority is to recover any data you have on this drive.
 
I suggest that you create a self-booting copy of Linux, which will run off a CD, to determine if your HD can be accessed and data recovered to external storage. There is a very good and clear tutorial here on how to create a self booting copy of Puppy Linux -
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/561869/how-to-create-a-secure-multi-session-puppy-cd-with-updatable-firefox-browser/
 
This will not turn your computer into a Linux machine - running Puppy by itself makes no change to your computer at all as it runs entirely in RAM. When it has booted you will see icons for your hard drives and partitions. They will have names like sda1, sda 2 and so on. You need to click on these to 'mount' them (ie make them active) then you can use Puppy's file manager to look for your data and move it to somewhere safe - USB memory stick, external HD, wherever.
 
Once your data is safe further steps to repair this computer can be considered.

I uninstalled a few unessential Iobit programs and cleared my downloads and recycle bin, then something even stranger happened. The SS drive had 16gb free, while this entire time I've had it I've only managed to keep it about 2-4gb free, and the file clogging stopped from what I could tell.Anyway, a week or so later, after exiting the Planetside2 Beta application earlier the machine crashed (unsurprisingly) but upon startup, did not recover.Startup repair unsurprisingly can't fix it, and I receive the following problem signature:The Windows Repair Problem Signature Problem Event Name: Startup Repair Offline Probl...

Before I start I'm sorry if this is in the wrong thread, i just joined and I don't want to waste time that could be spent trying to fix my computer.

Anyways, I've been recently trying to dual boot windows 7 and windows 8 release preview and i tried several methods from vhd to bootable usb, it was going pretty well until i decided bootable usb would be easier and got rid of the vhd that wouldve had windows 8. Now i am unable to boot my computer after a message saying bootmgr is missing. I have a system recovery disc but when i put it in it comes up with an error :status 0xc00000e9 info an unexpected I/O error has occurred. I also have the usb with the bootable windows 8 installation but that fails to start with another error; status 0xc000000f info a required device isnt connected or cant be accessed. i am currently making a windows 7 boot cd to see if i cant get that to help fix my problem. i would do the same thing with windows 8 but the windows usb/dvd download tool says my windows 8 iso is an invalid iso so i was unable to use that but i got it through a more difficult tutorial. I will answer any and all questions that further explain this problem to the best of my knowledge. I know little about scripts commands etc, but i have been trying to learn so if something like this were to happen it would be easier, sadly i didnt get enough time to work.

Hi All,
 
Really hope you can help, I have an ACER PC and its stopped booting up.
 
I can get into the system recovery option but not really sure what to do after that.

Problem signature:

  OS Version: 6.1.7601.2.1.0.256.1
  Locale ID: 1033
 
What happened:
 
I use my computer regularly, and came back from holiday to find the PC would not start up. I have not run any diagnostics from the command prompt as I am a novice in this space. I have a lot of data on the PC that I would really like to get the machine working again but am at a loss as how to proceed.
 
If I reboot I get the Starting Windows screen, but cannot get to the logon prompt. If I re-boot I get the Start Up in recovery mode Option or start normally which hangs at Windows icon.
 
Hope this is enough detail. I posted here as my problem seems very similar to the below link:

Can you start in Safe Mode?  To do this, start tapping the F8 key just as the Acer splash screen goes away.
Select Safe Mode and press Enter
 
If that works, then try Safe Mode with Networking

What happened
Computer is from the son of my neighbour. I'm not 100% sure what happened before the issue. Sometimes he says he reinstalled windows and sometimes he says he just installed a program. He has a form of autism so it's pretty difficult to exactly be sure what happened.
 
Normally I would just reinstall windows, but that might lose some programs and settings. And I'm afraid that will have an emotional effect on the guy. So I'm looking for a way to fix this.
 
 
Hope someone can help me with this.

Running Toshiba c855-1g win 7 x64
No problems until yesterday when all my video files suddenly produced an error on play
Error said I don't have permission to view it. Even trying to replay the same episode playing not seconds before produced the same error. Odd because I was offline, mid series and it just happened. Anyway I decided to system restore back 24 hours, system restore completed but didn't reboot, it just shut down. When I booted up again it wanted to do a start up repair so I said yes, and it found no problem (it suggested unplugging any usb devices and rebooting, needless to say there were none plugged in)
So I rebooted, got to the windows logo and am just left with a black screen and a movable arrow pointer.
I manually shutdown and booted again, f8 for advance repair, ran startup repair again. Same answer. Could not detect an issue. Went to cmd to do chkdsk/r and the reply came;
The type of the file system is ntfs
Cannot lock current drive
Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.

Update:

Ran system restore again, this time from dos system recovery options, this time system restore did not complete successfully and show the following message

"Failed while scanning the file system on the drive C:\
Try running system restore again after running chkdsk/r on this disk.
An unspecified error occurred during system restore (0x080070057)"

Running chkdsk/r again yeilds same results as before

Answer:write protected start up repair \ system restore failure

Still no changes and I don't know what caused this, it all occurred watching wmp

Is there a way of copying files to enable the system resore to work or some other things to try.

Thanks very much in advance for any help

Answer:Start up repair problem + no free space for system restore

I'm not quite sure of exactly what you're saying caused the problem and what other errors you got.

You have multiple disks and/or partitions and one ran out of room? What are you trying to accomplish with System Restore?

Could you download and run VistaForums SysInfo Tool - Vista Forums (Select All and export to file), and upload the file with your reply?

Hey everyone, few days ago my win7 installs few updates, and when it restarted itself - it couldn't turn itself back on.
It always gets stuck right before the login screen.
 
I have tried few things:
 
1. Startup repair- told me he couldn’t find anything,
2. System restore- tells me there is no backup
3. I tried all kinds of safe modes or any other startup option from the F8 menu
4. I tried to copy & paste the auto registry backup files from C:\Windows\System32\config\RegBack- caused BSOD
5. I ran the memory diagnostic tool
6. I ran FRST64 scan
7. I tried to restart the motherboard, and I disconnected every USB/other media from the mother board.
 
Non of these helped.
 
 
I attached the startup repair log, and the FRST log.
Any idea what can be done? Maybe there is a fixlist that can be created for this issue?
 
This was the startup repair problem log:

Answer:Windows 7 Failed to Start, and System Repair couldn't Find Anything

This is a little confusing.
 
You stated that this computer stops loading before the login screen.  But then you post all these things you have done, all of which would require either booting into Windows normally, or in Safe Mode.

The magnesium rollcage on the left side of the display has broke when I tried closing the laptop. The hinge got somehow stuck, and I coulnd't close the lid, so I tried to apply a tiny bit of force. Unfortunately, being a very fragile and soft material, magnesium (along with the plastic part that holds the bottom left screw) broke. I have managed to get the left hinge moving again, but now the display is being held by only right hinge, which isn't enough to support a 15 inch screen. Oh and closing it is a pain. Lenovo say that they can't fix it for some odd reason, even though it's still on the warranty. (probably because they can't understand what i'm trying to explain). Though I didn't open it yet, I can conclude from looking at it that I'm going to need a new rollcage, new outer LCD shell (that black top lid), and a new set of hinges. I can replace it myself, fully understanding it'd void my warranty, as long as I get my laptop working again. I need it for work. Where can I get a new rollcage, outer shell and a pair of hinges? Thank you. This is a Thinkpad T500-2082 which still has 243 days of warranty.

I sent in my sl500 laptop to be repaired. The issue is that the left hinge between the base and the screen just started wiggling and seemed loose. It is my honest opinion that this is due to normal wear and use of the machine, which does nothing but sit on my desk. However, when the repair technician got the machine last week he has decided that it is a billable repair. I have now been waiting for four business days for any information as to how he comes to this conclusion. When these were IBM products and IBM service standards this would never have happened. My family has been employed with IBM since 1964 and we have never had such trouble with customer service.My laptop is now hostage at the service depot until the technician decides to provide me with photos that will apparantly show me how the issue is my fault and therefore not covered under the warranty which I purchased with the laptop a few years ago.To add, apparently when you call to talk with a supervisor they do not have one on duty during all the hours the service center is open for phone calls. One would think that that if you are open for business that st least a supervisor would also be on duty.

Answer:SL500 needs hinge repair - billable?

I have been raped by customer service.  after several days of waiting for checking, I finally received photos of the laptop which the repair technician says proves that the repair is billable.  Now it's my word against his and I am the one with the short end of the stick. I HAVE NEVER BEEN SO ANGRY BEFORE IN MY LIFE at the customer service I am receiving.  The machine in the photos looks NOTHING like what it did when I put it in the box.  There is absolutely NO way that I caused the damage that he claims I did. I am now at the mercy of whenever a supervisor wants to call me back to discuss the photos and for me to continue to plead my case.  This has been the absolute worst customer service I have every experienced in my life.  When Lenovo was IBM this would have never happened.  I have been an IBMer since 1969 with members of my family having worked there for 40+ years.

Hi,
 
Just wanted to determine my risk....  So I bought a Y40-80 laptop for my wife a little less than a year ago, and just from normal opening and closing, the left hinge has failed and eventually cause the cover to separate from the lcd.  I'm holding it in place using a big metal clip at the moment.   
 
As far as I am concerned, this was the result of a manufacturing defect; I have owned many laptops over the years and have never had a hinge failure like this, let alone have it happen in less than a year.  It was not dropped, or abused in any way.  Looking on line I see a lot of complaints about this, e.g., on Y50 but not my specific model.
 
Anyway, when I chatted online with Lenovo support, after I sent them a picture, the guy warned me that it may not be covered under warranty since it is "physical damage"; I never knew that this sort of cop out language existed with respect to warranties on computers.  Accidental damage I agree, but this is clearly a defect in the product.
 
They sent me a box to mail it to the depot, and I just wanted to find out what would happen if they refused to fix it under warranty.  There is no way I am paying to fix this problem, but I'm concerned that they will hold my machine hostage if we reach an impasse.  
 
Will Lenovo demand money from me to send the machine back?  If so, any idea what it will be?  I'm just trying to determine how much risk I'm willling to t... Read more

Answer:Y40-80 - Warranty repair for broken hinge

A little cart before horse here?  I think you're working yourself up about this when it probably isn't necessary.   They have to cover their asses and from a pic there's probably no way to tell if you sat on the thing when it was open.  If it's a design flaw (and I'm pretty positive it is), the tech will know it and your laptop will either be repaired or replaced.  I have many issues with Lenovo quality, but for a large corporation, their support has been alright.   Stop thinking about the laptop and it'll be back before you know it, keep obsessing on it like a pot of water that won't boil and it will feel like forever.  Good luck!

Almost a year ago, I tried to do an XP and Windows 7 dual boot on my laptop. A few weeks later, I didn't need the XP, so I deleted the partition XP was on. I continued to use 7 though the xp still remained in Windows boot manager upon startup.

A few days ago, in the advanced system settings, I disabled the bootable OS display, and set my default OS to Windows 7. I restarted and now I'm stuck in a continuous startup repair loop, where it tells me that it can't fix my problem automatically and that the cause is an "OS version mismatch". Could it be trying to boot the partition XP was on? I can't log on my computer at all.

In the command prompt that comes up after I go to the system recovery options screen, I tried to fix the boot options using bootrec / commands, but so far none of them have worked.

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Greetings and thanks for all you do.First off I didn't do a backup before starting the uninstall process. Also, all of the RKilldifferent file names where terminated or stopped running. So that step never got completed.I really don't remember if I rebooted during the process or not. Sorry.After running Malwarbytes I had trouble with Unhide.exe. It took multiple tries to get thedesktop icons back. Sometimes they would be there for a few minutes and then be gone.A couple of times they're there and then after turning off the computor and back on they'regone. Or the recylce bin and iexplore are there and then gone.Most of the time "all program" was empty. Sometimes there was the open office program.Do I have any chance of recovering my favorites and more importantly the program start menu?Thank you..DDS (Ver_2011-06-23.01) - NTFSx86 Internet Explorer: 8.0.6001.18702 BrowserJavaVersion: 1.6.0_22Run by HP_Administrator at 5:26:25 on 2011-07-27Microsoft Windows XP Professional 5.1.2600.2.1252.1.1033.18.1982.1290 [GMT -6:00].AV: Webroot AntiVirus with Spy Sweeper *Enabled/Updated* {77E10C7F-2CCA-4187-9394-BDBC267AD597}.============== Running Processes ===============.C:\Program Files\Webroot\Security\Current\Framework\WRConsumerService.exeC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost -k DcomLaunchsvchost.exeC:\WINDOWS\System32\svchost.exe -k netsvcsC:\WINDOWS\system32\svchost.exe -k WudfServic...

Hi, im new on here but have used the site many times when looking for solutions to my problems.
 
I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 (win 7) which ran out of battery and shut down as normal. When i went to restart it it said that it could not restore the session so i could try again or delete the data and start again. I initially went for the restore (twice) but it failed to load up, causing the machine to abruptly shut down. I the decided to use the delete session and start again option which again, did not work and led to the machine abruptly shutting down.
 
I started the machine up again and was prompted to runthe startup repair software which again caused an abrupt shutdown. I managed to start in safe mode which lasted for 5 mins but again shut down abruptly.
 
On the last start up i got a blue screen saying something about a serious error, it only stayed on screen for 20 secs or so so i couldnt write it down.
 
I cant do anything as the machine shuts down anytime up to 5 mins after powering on - never getting windows 7 running.
 
The fan is also running constantly and appears to be working very hard.
 
I have not installed any new software (to the best of my knowledge)
 
Is it a HDD problem? or something else?
 
Can anyone please shed some light as to why this is happening and suggest a fix if possible. I need my computer back!!!
 
Thanks in advance,
 
Dan.

Hello. I've had problem with my friend's laptop (OS - Windows 7 Ultimate). It won't log on to it's fullscreen mode. When I open it, I'm always stuck at Startup Repair error cycle.

Here's what happened: I installed Glary Utilities and used it to uninstall the Adobe CS3 Bundle. Then I installed the CS4 Bundle. After that, I used Glary Utilities again to clean the registry, cookies, missing shortcuts, etc. Then I used its Registry Optimizer feature..after analyzing the system, it said that the computer needed to restart to complete the process. So I restarted it. And that's where I'm left at. I can't open the laptop anymore, I can't even run it on Safe Mode - it's not available. The only available options I will tell below. My theory on this problem is that maybe I or the Glary program have deleted system files that are essential for Windows startup.

Note: I uploaded: a video of what is happening to my friend's laptop during startup; .txt files of the errors; a picture of the ble screen; and a copy this post in a word document (ony, it's not translated into English but the dialog boxes are in English). Here's the link to the files so you could check my problem: http://www.filefactory.com/file/b2540hd/n/prob.rar

Answer:Windows unable to start - Startup Repair and System Restore won't work

Similar problems when trying to restore a system image from a portable HD. I used a bootable USB stick with the Win7 installation files on it and then tried to select a system image from the portable HD. After selecting the image and advancing to the next screen all of the selections would be grayed out and would not let me restore the image. I tried selecting another image from a backup partition on the computers HD and had the same problem. The fix was to repeat the procedure booting from the installation DVD instead of the bootable USB. I am not sure why the DVD worked when the bootable USB failed but it saved me a reinstall. This is an old post but I thought I would share my findings just in case someone has the same problem in the future.

A couple nights ago I left my pc on to complete a download and set it to shutdown when it completed. I have done this many times without issue. But since waking up that day, I can not get Windows to start. I have run the start up repair and it is unable to fix my computer. It returns the system files integrity check and repair 0x490 error. I did a system restore from less than a week before and it didn't fix the problem. I have been able to start Windows in safe mode, but that hasn't helped in fixing the issue either.

I recently moved and left my install disk somewhere at home so I am trying to find a way to fix this without having to reinstall Windows. Any help would be appreciated.

Had this unit in for a warranty repair in January. At that time the right hinge was causing the case to seperate. It has made it to the beginning of April, and now the left side is starting to seperate. This unit never leaves the house, and has never been dropped, yet the excessive drag opening the unit normally creates seems to be causing issues. Clearly a design flaw.

Having recently bought pretty much the most expensive XPS 13 you can buy I was pretty disappointed when I dropped in on the carpet (gently) and the hinge broke - stuff happens. It's my primary computer so I just want to get it fixed as quick as possible - money is not really an issue.
After paying $300 for the repair I now find out, after over a week, that it's going to take ANOTHER 7 - 14 working days to fix it.
That's totally unacceptable for me and, despite being a loyal DELL business customer for over 15 years that's the last one I will buy. How DELL think that  3 - 4 week turnaround on a PAID repair for a computer under warranty is acceptable I don't know.

Yep, a total newbie here.  Use a T61P for desktop and portable... before a T40p (and I don't remember the one before that , LOL).  So, got my hands on a slightly damaged X24 from a corporate recylce pile, I would LOVE to put it to use as an internet surfboard, and possibly streaming music source.  It's an amazing little pad. I'm looking for hinge screws that fasten the hinge on to the LCD screen. I need the screws that hold the screen to part (2, the hinges) in the image here: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?sitestyle=lenovo&lndocid=MIGR-39710 Where would I find out if that part (#2) includes the screws, or if the screws are available separately? Thank you.

Answer:Repair parts wanted... X24 hinge screws.

Lenovo sent me a whole bag full of screws for free two years ago.  I was unhappy with the Intel WiFi minicard that came with my X60 so I bought an Atheros card.  The Lenovo installation instructions say that you should not re-use the screws that were there originally.  So I called Lenovo/IBM customer service, and they sent me a bag full of screws.  Actually seven bags.  I would describe them as follows with the length of the threaded portions:1. black flat phillips head 1/8"2. black pan phillips head 3/16"3. black pan phillips head 1/4"4. black slotted head 1/8"5. silver phillips head 1/8"6. silver phillips flat head 1/4"7. silver jackscrews 1/4" It says on the outer bag FRU No. 41V9754You probably need to find the maintenance manual for the X24 and see what the FRU number is for the bag of screws.If you want to try some of these screws, and if this web site supports private messages, then send me a private message.

Hey guys, the right hinge on my Lenovo G570 is broken. Right now it's pretty much lifting the top casing of my computer and my monitor is sitting askew. I tried calling Lenovo to get an estimate, but they told me I had to send it in and pay for shipping as well as an $80 dollar processing fee. I'm just curious as to how much parts and labor might come out to. What have you guys recieved for estimates? 

Answer:Lenovo G570 hinge repair estimate

hi yutxz,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
The repair cost will depend on the parts that are needed to be replaced. If for example, the hinge, and the plastic part that holds the hinge (base cover) are broken, the service centers to replace the following parts:
 
Base Cover (for models with HDMI) 
Base Cover (for models without HDMI)
LCD Hinge
 
So say you have the hdmi base cover+hinge model+one hour labor (say $25), then you're probably looking at a $85 quote (shipping / taxes excluded). Note that this is just an example. The reason why the tech. ask you to send it in is because the person in charge of the repair needs to see the damage and quote the necessary parts for the repair.
 
Hope this gives you an idea.
 
 
Regards,
neokenchi

Hello,

I've been unable to access my custom build computer since around 5:00 yesterday. I chose to restart my computer at around that time just because it was slowing up a little and I usually do that to help, I had not installed any updates or new programs since 2 days ago when there had been a few windows updates.

Upon returning to my computer I noticed that it had been unable to startup and had gone straight into system repair with it being 'unable to repair this computer automatically.' I rebooted several times and noticed that it was not a visible BSOD but as soon as the 'starting windows' icon began to appear it went straight into startup repair. I tried to boot into safe mode, tried to load previous good configuration and all of the other advanced recovery options (including system restore/image and many command prompts).

This is what it shows after being unable to repair automatically:

Problem signature name:Startup repair offline
Problem signature 1: 6.1.7600.16385

To any staff, Long story short, the hinge on my Thinkpad T61p were getting loose (it was moving back and forth) and upon a quick serach, apparently it was a known issue on these laptops. As my warranty was nearing its end, I quickly called Lenovo to have this repaired. Because I was promised that this repair is going to be finished within 5-7 business days, I decided to go ahead and send it away depite that my major requires it 24/7. I've received a box next day and I sent it away on Jan 9th, 2008. I called in today to see what's happening but this employee, who rather got really irritated that I called in, couldnt find my info for 30 mins. After finally finding my info, he mentioned that the hinge is backordered. I politely asked him when I can get the laptop back but he said it could take days.. weeks or possibly up to months.  The sole reason why I sent this laptop for a repair was because they said the turnaround repair would be fast and I believed his word. It's quite dissapointing to hear these kind of delays in repair process when I need this laptop ASAP. There are actually 2 ongoing cases regarding my laptop but none of them are being solved at the moment. The 6 cell battery, which just died a few days ago, was replaced by a 9 cell from Lenovo. I called about this issue as well and hopefully they can get this straightened out. How long does it take for a "back ordered" parts to arrive at the depot?

Hey guys,
After 6 months of use, the left hinge on my 7559 has decided to give up. 
I've followed official manual to open the laptop and see what wrong.
Here's a photo and a video showing how 2 of the 3 screws holding the left hinge have failed:

drive.google.com/open
As you can see, the yellow copper thingies that hold the screws (not sure how they're properly called) have been pulled out of the bottom case. Only one screw that goes through fan and into palmrest is still holding up.
Could you give any advice on the best way to repair it? Would I need to get a replacement bottom case or is there way to just get new yellow copper thingies and put them in the sockets in the bottom case?

Cheers!

Windows failed to start, startup repair cannot repair this computer, safe mode cannot load, chkdsk freezes, sfc scan cannot perform the requested operation

Hi, I cannot start my Windows 7 at all. With power on, the system tries to load up but: ' windows failed to start.A recent hardware or software change might be the cause'. Trying to open safe mode or last good configuration doesn't work, it goes automatically to startup repair but after about an hour trying it says ' Windows 7 Startup Repair Cannot Repair This Computer ' (tried a few times). After another reboot with a windows 7 repair disk in the drive I managed to open the recovery manager from the DVD instead of the HDD and tried all the options - system recovery does not work, i have no previous images of the system, I ran a scan on the memory - it was all clear but still windows not starting. Then I did CHKDSK and it froze at 11% on stage 4 of 5, that happened a couple of times so I decided to run an sfc scannow but another error: 'Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation'. So I'm totally stuck and don't know where to go next, I've got no windows installation disk, only repair disk. Any ideas would be much appreciated!

I recently bought and installed Windows 7 Home Premium OEM onto my HP G42 (which is now 2.5 years old). I had Win 7 home Premium on it when I bought it, but the hard drive broke and I ended up getting a new drive (Seagate Momentus 7200 750 GB 7200RPM SATA 3Gb/s 16 MB Cache). I installed it onto there, and it seemed to be working fine for a few start ups. Then when I tried doing an update, I got blue screened the when rebooting, and it wouldn't let me back in.

From there, I decided to completely re-install Win 7 (I really had nothing of value on there), and that worked longer. It still had trouble doing an update, but after trying it again, it worked fine. It was a few days ago that it began giving me blue screens telling me a "critical system process has stopped working or terminated". Now, when I try booting to it, it will get to the start up screen with the animation, then it'll reboot after a minute and tell me it had trouble booting.

I ran start up repair, and it told me that the root cause was that the system volume was corrupt. I'm not really sure of what I can do now. Is there any way to fix this problem or to prevent it from happening in the future?

Side note: I don't know if any of you are proficient in the Ubuntu system (I dual-boot with ubuntu 13.04), but I tried accessing the Win 7 partition from there and it gave me this message (see attachment):

Answer:G560 laptop won't boot. Start up Repair Cannot Repair this automatically

hi lobe29,
 
Try the following:
 
1. On the system recovery option's command prompt, type:
 
bootrec.exe  /fixmbr
bootrec.exe  /fixboot
bootrec /scanos
bootrec.exe  /rebuildbcd
 
2,. After typing the above commands, close command prompt and perform a startup repair (1 or 2 times) until you get a message "Startup repair didn't find any errors" then reboot the PC (Windows should now startup loading).
 
3. If the problem persist, you may need to do a Repair Install on the OS (follow step 8-22). To do this, you will need to burn a Windows 7 ISO whicn you can get here or here.

after trying this a few times and getting now joy i tried to

boot from last known good configuration, which led to the same

result- the blue screen at the same point. i have been able to

get in via safe mode and tried a system restore to the 17th,

which while it did complete the system restore, did nothing to

help the problem. i then tried not telling the system to

Answer:computer won't start, startup repair can't repair os version mismatch,

Hi and welcome to TSF this is about your error code
Bug Check 0x74: BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO
The BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO bug check has a value of 0x00000074. This bug check indicates that there is an error in the registry.

Parameters
The following parameters appear on the blue screen.

Parameter Description
1 Reserved
2 Reserved
3 Reserved
4 The NT status code (if it is available)


Cause
The BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO bug check occurs if the SYSTEM hive is corrupt. However, this corruption is unlikely, because the boot loader, known as NT Loader (NTLDR) in versions of Windows prior to Vista, checks a hive for corruption when it loads the hive.

This bug check can also occur if some critical registry keys and values are missing. Thee keys and values might be missing if a user manually edited the registry.

Resolving the Problem
Try restarting the computer by selecting "last known good configuration" in the boot options.

If the restart does not fix the problem, the registry damage is too extensive. You must reinstall the OS or use the Emergency Repair Disk (ERD) that you previously created by using the Windows Backup tool.

I have decided recently to create a system repair disc in case something goes wrong with my computer. Using recdisc.exe, I created a system repair disc and everything worked out fine. Once I booted with the repair disc, I got a screen that looks like this:
This is what I wanted

I decided to make a recovery USB as well for convenience. (USB is much faster and is less bulky than a regular DVD)

I copied everything in the DVD, and pasted in my USB (the USB is an active and a primary partition). When I boot into the USB however, I do not get the System Recovery Options screen, but the HP Recovery Manager screen. I personally dislike HP recovery manager and want to get the Windows System Recovery Options screen.

If I try to close the HP Recovery Manager, a dialog pops up asking if it should close HP Recovery Manager and reboot. Can someone tell me if I did something wrong to create the USB Recovery drive? I don't know what I did wrong, I copied everything from the disc (which works perfectly) to the USB (which suddenly decided not to work.) In case anyone was wondering, the HP Recovery Manager looks like this:

I don't know if this is relevant, but the CD drive is first in my boot order. Once I have a repair CD in my computer, it automatically loads. For me to access the USB, I have to manually boot into the USB using BIOS. Thanks for reading.

Answer:System Repair USB not working but System Repair disc is.

Hi

you cant just copy and past it into the usb drive it has to be bootable. i have not done it before but see if this helps you. Boot Windows 7 System Repair Disc from USB Using Grub4Dos

I turned on my computer this morning and it loaded to a blue screen that read "start up repair, Windows cannot repair this computer automatically" it then gives me the option to send to Microsoft so they can create solutions or to exit and the run computer off. I am able to hit esc when the screen pops up and run a hard drive test. The test did not show anything. How do I fix my laptop?

Cgadrim Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! If the problem is only corrupted boot files, it might be repairable.You will need access to a working PC in order to create the media needed to repair your PC boot loader.You will need to create something known as a Win7 Repair CD.  This will repair the boot loader files, and if that is the problem, your PC will boot OK after that.This can be obtained (for a fee) from this link:  http://neosmart.net/blog/2009/windows-7-system-repair-discs/When you download this file, it will be an ISO file.To make a bootable CD from it, you will need to download and install ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/Once you have that installed, run it, select the option "Write image file to disc" and select the ISO file you downloaded, and point it to a blank CD.Once you have that, run it, in the Device entry, use the pulldown to select the USB stick.  Down near the bottom right, where is says "Create a bootable disk using", select the ISO file you downloaded.-------------------------------------Boot from the media you created, and follow the directions in this link: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/681-startup-repair.html Yeah, I know that says Win7 but that and Vista have the same boot loader files.You will probably have to run Startup Repair three times for it to fix all the boot loader problems.When done, your PC should boot OK.Good Luck

How it started: I had some problems with installing Rollup 2 for Windows XP MC edition 2005 and called Microsoft tech support. They told me to find my restore DVD from Dell and reinstall windows because the error is most likely caused by a missing/corrupt file. Then they proceeded to say they'll call me tomorrow at 11:30.

The Problem: I started the installation process. Everything is fine until it gets to the point where the screen is on installing. It gets stuck at precisely the point where it says "34 minutes left" in installation process. I note the process at the time is "installing devices". I wait about a little under 2 hours and no progress. Sometime at around +1 hour after it gets stuck at "34 minutes left", I get a pop-up to insert a "Creative...(something)" CD and push OK. I assume it's a file in the restoration DVD, but it's not after looking through it...and I simply hit cancel and it seems that installation proceeds, albeit still stuck at "34 minutes left" mark.

After waiting...annoyed at no progress, I hard-reset my comp and repeat the process about 3 more times...getting the same result: stuck at "34 minutes left" (I didn't wait 2 hours like the first time). Finally after the 3rd hard reset, I get a Windows XP installation screen that says "restarting installation process" (this happens everytime if I start boot-up from HD instead of CD like the first time)...then a blac...

Apparently my computer had double files on the c drive so I deleted ten yesterday, before running a disk clean up. I also deleted several miscellaneous programs (not on C) installed when I bought it. today however it failled to start normally. I've tried what was recommended on system recovery options ( command prompt, window memoery diagnostics) but is hesitant to do a system restore/system image recovery as I don't have a piint in time for it to restore too.It has some really important pictures that I don't want to lose. please help me figure out what is wrong.

Answer:start up repair failed to automatically repair computer

After "startup repair" you have a choice to click. Something like "view diagnostic details". Click on it. What tests were done and don't have status code 0x0? Give all details please.

You uninstalled programs the way you should?
