Preferred Solution: blue screen and error 0xc000021a and the continuous repair loop

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: blue screen and error 0xc000021a and the continuous repair loop

Hi RayB63,

I have a few questions for you thanks to my own experience with this crash.

When started the crash to occur?
In my experience, people weren't able to boot into the system to run the tool with this crash.
Are you running in safe mode to run the dm log collector?

My system is a AMD PIII 1.1Ghz, 512MB RAM, 40Gig and 60 Gig HD's and CD RW drive. Running XP Pro with SP1.

I recently installed a DVD R drive and made it my master and made my CD RW a slave. Everything seemed OK and I even burned a few disks with the new drive.

I got a blue screen message a few days later but it was on the screen very briefly and I could not make out the message. The machine rebooted itself normally back into windows and I was able to continue working. The following day I got another blue screen that said something like "..stop, fatal system error at c000021a. Unhandled exception in session manager...terminated unexpectedly" I also saw the message "disable bios memory options" and "0xc00000005". The system rebooted itself but stopped at the windows screen and the blue error message came up again starting the cycle over again.

I shut the computer down and entered via safe mode, went to system restore and was unable to restore the system to any previous date. The next time I rebooted I again went through safe mode and the system hung when it was loading amdagp.sys and has continued to hang on that file when I try to boot in safe mode.

Ive also tried to boot up through the other options at start up(boot safe with prompt; last known configuration; etc...but I always get the blue screen and then a reboot. I now cannot access any part of windows.

I also disconnected my DVD and CD drives, as well as adjust the BIOS and CMOS ... Read more

Hi everyone,

My friend just began getting a fatal system error when he tries turning his computer on. It loads up all and displays the background, and then crashes. The error is a blue screen:

STOP: C0000021a {Fatal System Error}
The Windows Logon Process System process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000).
The system has been shut down.

I've been unable to find anything to correct this problem. It can boot up into safe mode but not safe mode with networking capabilities (it then does the same thing). Anyone know of any solutions? Thanks!

Hello all,

I was asked to disinfect a friend's computer that was absolutely infested with virii, malware, spyware, and the like. I began by installing and running AVGh antivirus. After running a full scan, I was asked how I wanted to proceed regarding a particular infected file (unfortunately I did not write down the filename) and I choose either delete/qyuantine. Immediately
following, I was greeted with a blue screen that read 0xC000021A error. Since then, I have tried every possible way to boot: Safe Mode, Last previous configuration, etc. I also tried booting from the Dell utility partitiion and all those tests Passed (even the OS/Boot up test- go figure). Because all of these boots were unsuccessful, I decided the only way to fix this would be a fresh format. Well I can't even do that! I choose boot from CD and still get the blue screen with the same error! How in the world can I fix this if I can't even format and reinstall the OS? Any ideas?

I have googled endlessly and failed to come up with a solution. I read Microsoft's documentation but there is no way for me to follow the steps since I cannot access any kind of prompt.

Thanks so much in advance.

Thanks in advance for the help. I was having some issues with google redirect and various viruses and malware, so I ran a combination of PC Tools Spyware Doctor and Malwarebytes on top of my Trend Micro Titanium. Malwarebytes found a few minor things and fixed them, and PC Tools found at least 4 high risk trojans. I ran the fix there and rebooted, and since then I cannot get back to my desktop even in Safe Mode. I've tried Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, and Safe Mode with Command Prompt as well as attempted to do a system restore (which fails), but all this does is create a loop of attempted repairs and restarts. I see the blue screen of death error flash anywhere from 1-5 seconds before the loop is initiated again. Basically, the end result is the suggestion to simply shut down the computer.

I wanted to post the dds and other prerequisite programs to generate the logs you need, but I'm unsure of how to do this since I can't use my computer. I do have access to a second computer in case I need to save any of these programs to flash drives.

Appreciate the help.

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

Answer:stuck in blue screen/start up repair loop

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

Hi,
A day ago, my Windows 8 Toshiba computer started making a really loud whirring sound, so I manually rebooted my computer pressing the button, and turned it on, but it still made the sound...after many tries, I finally got it to turn on without any sound, but a few hours later, it started making the whirring noise again, so I rebooted it...this continued for the whole day...overall, I probably manually rebooted the thing over 20 times or so.
Last night, however, I manually shut my computer down once again, but when I turned it back on, it was going to automatically repair my computer, but it started making a loud whirring sound again, so despite it being in the middle of the repair, I manually shut it down.
Afterwards, I turned it back on and on the TOSHIBA start loading screen, at the bottom it said loading Automatic Repair...but then before it can start the Automatic Repair, it goes to the blue error page, but after a second, while the error info blue screen is at 0%, my computer automatically shuts down and restarted itself to the TOSHIBA start loading screen with the Automatic Repair "loading" at the bottom, and then back to the blue error information sending screen before shutting down less than a second later, before the computer can send any error info (while it's at 0%)...this is an endless cycle....
I don't know what to do? Please help!

Hi Kenzilla02 & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

Could you please post a photo of the Blue Screen so that we could see if there is anything which can help us in diagnosing the problem. You cannot get into the Safe Mode as well?

Anyways, you would need an installation disc for the repairs and to check what is going on.

Hi All,

Yesterday my win vista crashed (Blue Screen , dumping memory cache) and then when it rebooted, it offered me to start or repair system which i tried but it started to just loop from the repair prompt to normal startup.

I tried safe mode and debug mode..sometimes i can see my desktop but the system crashes immediately. I purchased the Easy Re for Windows Vista from Neosmart and burnt it to boot from but nothing happens.
I lost my windows CD unfortunately.

Is there anything i can try?
 

Answer:Win Vista Restart Loop after blue screen (repair system)

When an operating system is present, your PC will not boot from a CD (eg the the one you made from Neosmart) until you go into the BIOS Setup and set the CD/DVD drive as the first boot device in the boot sequence.

To get into the BIOS Setup you have to press a specific key (it's the 'Delete' key on my PC) as soon as the manufacturer's splash-screen appears. It's not always the 'Delete' key though. It depends on the manufacturer.

First off, hello. I'm not completely sure where I'm suppose to place this particular article but I'm assuming posting it into the threads might be good enough.

I've owned an ASUS laptop, model X54C for a year and it's currently running on windows 7.

Yesterday I spent the entire day working on assignments and skyping friends. I've recently completed three assignments but stupidly I didn't save it to a USB key (figures the one time I didn't my laptop breaks down). When I turned it on this morning to retrieve the files, it booted up then went to this screen (startup repair):



As you can imagine, I sent the information then shut down the laptop and restarted it.

I attempted going through the safe mode by pressing f8. Although the options all came up on the screen, when I pressed onto safemode it brought me back to the blue screen and the pop up.

After searching around for a little bit, I quickly found that other people had this problem. At this point I've spent three hours going through different solutions.

So I'm not suggested the same solutions I've already tried, here is a list of what I've already tried: Disabling the system repair
Command Prompt
Waiting for extended periods of time to attempt reboot and log on.

As I have assignments on my laptop and plenty of photos, I need to keep my files on and not restore my laptop to original settings, or anything of the sort.

Now first thing is dont panic, as long as your HDD has not failed then all your files are there and recoverable

Have a read through this thread, it basically covers pretty much all options to get the system working again

If you need your files in a hurry and dont have time to fix your machine then you can transfer your files to a usb drive if you have one
you have two options to do this either from a command prompt or from a bootable linux disk (this is probably easiest but will require access to another machine)

As I suspected a registry fault was the cause of a continuous loop in Startup Repair, I carried out the Registry Repair described in:

Although Windows no longer loops, it now hangs at the startup screen.

The contents of config, regback and the recently created mybackup are as follows:-

config
The files copied from regback and now in the config directory are all dated today?s date.
? DEFAULT, 552,960, SAM 57,344 and SECURITY 24,576 files

(should be about 26,000,000 bytes) .
? SYSTEM file 21,495,808
(should be about 9,900,000 bytes).

regback
These were copied to config and are the same files

mybackup
These were previously in config prior to trying to making changes
? DEFAULT, 786,432, SAM 57,344 and SECURITY 24,576 files
These 3 are all dated 6/6/15, which is between the date of initial failure and today

ok basically my laptop recently started not working, what happens is it starts comes up with a screen of options (safe mode, command prompt etc.) if i pick "start normally" or "most recent settings that worked" then it will go to the windows loading screen then a blue error screen will pop up for a sec then it will restart. If i choose "safe mode" or "command prompt" then a long list of files shows up then i can't do anything. now i have tried a windows recovery disk but i cant seem to get my laptop to run off the disk, so yeah any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:blue error screen and continuous restart

When you choose Safe Mode, a bunch of code scrolls down the screen. Eventually, Safe Mode will load, it may take several minutes. If you leave it for 5-10 minutes and it does not load Safe Mode then you have a problem. Then restart the computer and boot into the Bios (after restart hit Del, F2, F1 or F10 depending on your computer brand or whatever key it says to enter setup on the black screen) In the Bios get to Boot order and change it so that CD rom drive is the first boot device. Save with an F10. Put the bootable XP CD in the drive. When the computer restarts it should say "press any key to boot from CD rom drive"

Yesterday I turned on my laptop which came preloaded with Vista and it popped up the black screen that says, "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." Then it gives me the option to launch the startup repair or boot windows normally.

If I try to boot Windows normally, it just gives a microsecond view of a blue screen then it puts me right back where I started.

If I try the startup repair, it tries running for a minute, then it says, "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically," and gives me the option to send or not send the info to Microsoft.

This system is used for my business and I'm pretty dependent on it.
Any suggestions for how to proceed on this would be VERY appreciated!!

I've got a problem I just can't see any way of fixing.

My son's Acer Aspire laptop is about a year old and has worked just fine. Recently he decided he needed to free up more room on the hard drive and figured he would uninstall some components from his Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003. Not sure exactly what he took out, but now the computer is in a continuous, never-ending loop of:

The Windows Installer box comes up saying "Preparing to install...". It seems to "flash", like it starts to go off then pops up again. Several times.

Then a box comes up saying:
Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003
Installing Error: File not found
A required installation file SKU112.CAB could not be found.
Original installation source required.

It says to to browse for the source, so I put in the CD and choose it, but then the following box comes up:
"Error 25091: Set up failed to change the source"

When I cancel ANY of the boxes I mentioned above, the "Windows Installer Preparing to install" pops right back up again. Hit cancel on it and it pops right back. Again and again. It never goes away.

Sometimes a box comes up saying:
Please wait while windows configures Microsoft Office Standard Edition 2003"
But the progress bar never budges. Left it up 24 hours even.
Then I cancel that and - yep - the Windows Installer preparing to install jumps back into its loop.

Answer:Constant Blue Screen Error and restarting loop - Can't do anything!!

Both crashes are hardware failure crashes, given the added components and the fact you can't get into safe mode it only defines a hardware problem and so the new components need to be tested.
Because you have a SSD you can't really test it with multiple tools which I would normally suggest.
With the SSD you could try a different cable and/or a different hard drive.

My pc is unable to start-up after attempting to reset it(fresh reset). It is in a restart loop and when I try to turn it on the Windows 10 logo appears but then a blue screen appears saying "Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just collecting some error info, and then we will restart for you." This then lets the PC restart and this restart process happens again.
I have tried pressing F8 while it boots up to try to get it into safe mode but had no luck. Does anyone know how I could fix this?

Answer:Windows 10 PC restart loop, blue screen error.

Switch it off by pushing the start button. Once switched off switch it back on and let it run for about 5 seconds and switch it off again by holding in the start button.
Switch it on again and it should give you a few things to do to try and start it. I managed to start mine by getting into safe mode with networking. or you could try a system restore first. Just remember that is what I tried first and got a pop up saying system restore did not restore to an earlier time. But when I got into safe mode with networking same pop up telling me system restore had finished and restored to an earlier time.

Hello,

I'm in the process of repairing a computer and I cannot seem to figure out the issue. The computer I am repairing is a Dell Inspiron M5040 laptop. The error is strange, the computer gets stuck in a boot loop every so often. The only way to access Advanced Startup Options(F8) is to insert a disk and attempt to boot to it, and then back out of the boot process and restart the computer. Then when I select the disable automatic restart on system failure option, it works fine. I also select that option in the control panel.

The computer works for a little while after that. However, if I turn the computer off and let computer sit for a few hours, it starts the loop error again, leaving me to do the same troubleshooting method. This error is very frustrating and any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Answer:Continuous boot loop error

It sounds like a hardware issue that kicks in when something is cold. Does it have a spinner or SSD?

Hello all,
I've got an issue with the Windows 8 interface that I'm pretty sure was caused by me installing the latest version of my antivirus program, AVG. I had AVG Free 2013, and when it prompted me to install the latest update to AVG 2014, I did so. Then it asked me to restart my computer, which I did. That's when the problems started.
When it restarted, it gave me the screens as if I was starting up a new computer; intro screens on how to use Windows 8 and such. I knew that wasn't right, so I switched the computer off by holding down the power button. In retrospect, this seems like it was a stupid thing to do, because the next time I booted up the computer, it started acting funny,
It took me to the login screen like normal (no Windows 8 intro screens). I put in my password and it took about 15-20 seconds to start up, a little longer than usual. Then when it took me to the Home Screen, I noticed that all my usual apps were gone. I only had a split second to look at this screen though, because then it took me to a screen with just a blank purple background. After a couple of seconds, the screen turns black with the outline of the gray taskbar at the bottom of the screen, as if the desktop app is trying to start. But after one second of that, it takes me back to the Home Screen, blank screen, desktop, then Home Screen again in loop. The whole thing lasts maybe 8 seconds or so and repeats.
Any idea what I can do about this? Again, I'm pretty sure this is connected to me inst... Read more

When I am putting a load on the graphics card, it randomly crashes with this error, whereupon even the power button is unresponsive. The heat leels are fin, the CPU history shows that the processors aren't maxing out etc. I contacted toshiba and was to format and start again; i did so and was told i would have to be able to produce the problem with the packages provided, such as MS Paint. I can't see how that is possible.

I also don't understand why the answer I got seems totally different to the answer [email protected]_UK got from his toshiba branch ( they replaced his system board whereas my one insists the problem is that 3d software is 'incompatible').

Answer:Satellite A100-998: Blue Screen error - nv4_disp.dll infinite loop

Hi

Hmmm, as far as I know Toshiba warranty does not cover any 3rd party software problems and it seems that this ?nv4_disp.dll graphic driver problem? appears only when the graphic card or the driver is working with full capacity.

I read some where that the original graphic driver could help but this is only a suggestion.
But the problem is that is not possible to install the original graphic card driver on the notebook?

After deep thinking I?ve got an idea. You could download the original driver for this card from the nVidia website, select the nv4_disp.dll file and replace it with the file placed on the HDD.

A few days ago I woke up at night to find my laptop turning on and not long after turning off, going into complete boot loop. When I turned computer off and on the boot loop continued where it would show the acer logo and then it would give me some of the advanced option menu choices: to go into a safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked), start windows normally. If I didn't click anything after around half minute it would take me to windows logo and then a flash of blue screen would appear, and then again computer would log off. If I clicked to start windows normally or last known good configuration the same thing happened. If I tried to log with any of the safe modes it would give me this:

The laptop came with windows xp media center edition.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Satellite A100-998: Blue Screen error - nv4_disp.dll infinite loop

Hi

I have read some postings here in the forum and on different sites in the internet about such nv4_disp.dll infinite loop issue.
Unfortunately, I didn?t find any ?general? solution.
Some people advice to update the graphic driver. I see you did it.
Did you check the omega drivers?? In some cases it helped.

You have suggested that this problem happens with 3d applications, 3ds max and video games.
I assume the BSOD appears because of the high temperature.
All this applications need the full graphic performance and the graphic card runs on limit and produces a lot of warmness. The high temp could have a bad influence on the chip?

Be sure that there are enough places around the notebook for the good air circulation?

Last week I was playing Tom Clancy's: The Division when the game unexpectedly crashed. I reloaded the game, played for a few more minutes, and then my entire PC locked up and then crashed to a blue error screen with a face stating that "Windows has encountered an error and needs to restart". My PC then restarted, and the HP Omen X Logo screen came on stating "Attempting Recovery Repair". The screen then would cut to another blue error screen, and the whole process would start all over again. When it would do this it would give me three different error codes each time a blue screen would come up. The order appeared to be random.The three error codes I would recieve are: "0xc0000145"  "0xc0000142"  and "CRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED" Again, this process of switching between error screens and the HP logo "Attempting Recovery Repair" screen would loop for about 5 or 10 minutes before ending with a completely black screen. My PC will not boot in Safe Mode and Factory Restore from the HDD partition ends up going to the aforementioned error screen loop. I contacted HP about my situation and they have sent me USB recovery media unit. However, when I try to boot from the USB to do a clean install I am again met with the same error loop. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Repair/Reinstall XP Blue Screen Error

Were you doing a repair install? What was the reason you were doing a repair?
If you need to backup your files (which you should always do prior to any work like this) you can use a boot disc like BartPE, Symantec Ghost, Linux Live or something similar to at least get access to your files.

You could also connect your hard drive to another machine and backup the files that way.

Hi

> I've got Satellite Pro A200-PSAE7 with ATI HD2600 Mobility Radeon. I've downgraded to XP SP2. I get blue screen saying that ati2dvag went infitive loop quite constantly. Any solution to this?

Usually the BSOD appears due to the serious software issue or hardware malfunction.
In my opinion it?s a software (driver) issue.

I presume the BSOD appears why playing some games? in most cases the graphic driver must be updated.
If the XP driver from the Toshiba page will not help you could try the graphic drivers from the www.omegadrivers.net site. The 3rd party drivers should run on your notebook. But note; 3rd party drivers can be used only at your own risk!

> Why standard display drivers from ati.com do not work? (While on my friends laptop with also hd2600 mobility radeon works fine).
The original ATI drivers cannot be installed on a easy way because such drivers don?t support an overheating protection. The Toshiba GPU drivers are a little bit modified and support an overheating protection. Such protection is necessary and important because the notebook graphic cards are not equipped with huge cooling module like the GPUs on for the desktop PCs.
The temperature increases on the notebooks much faster and therefore the graphic driver have to control the GPU performance to decrease the internal temperature.

Therefore it?s always advisable and recommended to use the Toshiba drivers ;)

Answer:Continuous Blue Screen Crash

Welcome
A review of your account does indeed agree with your post, many BSODs with different causes. One cause however did appear several times, so lets start there. After you make the suggested changes and you still get BSODs, may I suggest that you bring the computer in for a potential repair. We can try to go further, but that my invalidate your warranty, since the next step involves hardware.
This is the potentially corrupt driver. Update driver or remove the applicable software.

Running a gateway nv 52 laptop win 7 x64 home premium (upgrade kit), athlon x2 ql-65, 4gb ram. Will blue screen randomly. Updated sound drivers, video drivers and all other driver from gateway site. Log files and health report attached. I know it says a hard failure in the report, but that's because I disabled the ethernet modem because I don't use it.

Answer:Continuous Blue Screen 0x3b

Did you also disable the Ethernet port/card that's built into the PC? It's listed as disabled (x2) in perfmon.
The report that you generated from the Posting Instructions link is incomplete. Please run it again - and let it run for a while. That way we can get the additional reports (I particularly need the systeminfo.txt report and the msinfo32.nfo report).

Each one of the BSOD's points to an illegal instruction in a System Service being the cause. It blames the kernel (core) of the OS - but this is unlikely as you'd probably be having a lot more problems with the system if the core of the OS was corrupted. So we have to look at 3rd party drivers for the cause.

There are numberous older drivers on your system that can cause this. But the most obvious problem is the sptd.sys driver which is known to cause problems in Win7. This belongs to Daemon Tools/Alcohol 120%. Please uninstall that program first, then use this free tool to ensure that the offending sptd.sys driver has been removed from your system: DuplexSecure - FAQ - Remove 64 bit sptd.sys

Once that's done, please update these drivers. Pay particular attention to those marked in RED:

Everything closed fine and seemed normal but I noticed that my computer was still thinking fairly hard about, what appeared to be, nothing in particular. I gave it a couple minutes and then opened task manager again. There I noticed that the only thing taking up any memory at all was a program called csrss.exe and that it was not listed as Owner, unlike the other items in the list. I got suspicious so I looked csrss.exe up on the internet and discovered that, although it is supposed to be part of the OS, some viruses would disguise themselves as csrss.exe. Reading this I decied (perhaps foolishly) to end the csrss.exe process. When I did an error window popped up stating that it is not possible to end the process. I thought that was odd as well, so I opened Malwarebytes and updated it. I began a quick scan using Malwarebytes and opened IE again (perhaps foolishly). I opened fine and seemed to be running normally but then, before I had clicked anything I go... Read more

Hi all.

Have an Acer Veriton M460, Dual Core 2.0, 4GB Ram, Nvidia 9800, 160GB SATA HD.

Was running Vista Ultimate just fine, over six months with no problems. Today I got my first ever BSOD - said BAD_POOL_CALLER.

Machine did not recover after multiple reboots, finally said screw it and decided to re-install OS, was gonna run XP for a while. But I can't get anything to install without getting another BSOD three-five minutes into OS install. Have tried Vista, XP, and even the factory recovery disk.

The BSOD message keeps changing - either Bad Pool Caller or IRQL Not Less or Equal. These errors are too common, killing my attempts at googling the problem.

I was thinking might be a hard drive issue, so I used a GParted Live CD to re-format the drive and re-create the partition. All of that went well, but same dice - still can't install either XP or Vista without a BSOD.

I'm stumped. Please help!!

Just this friday I put together a new custom built PC and im positive the hardware is installed properly given the fact that I am able to use it. However I feel as though I initially installed the drivers improperly. I was following a youtube tutorial for the entire process essentially and when it came to updating the drivers i just installed them from the links the guy gave since we had the same exact motherboard and the video was made like a week ago so i figure it would be fine. I started noticing problems right away when trying to download some from the links it gave me weird error messages and of course it started to crash. (also my motherboard came with a disk to upload the drivers that i completely missed and never put in afterwards in fear of making things worse.

So I downloaded DriverEasy and that seemed to help. It told me what drivers needed updating so I updated all of them manually. After that it appeared to work fine, except it s... Read more

My Lenovo G480 BSOD on startup continuous. And I press the Novo Button to format Windows. But it no response.How I do?????

Answer:Lenovo G480 Blue Screen Of Death on startup continuous.

Hi Henry,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G480 Laptop is displaying BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) error while turning the computer ON, I suggest you to perform the Flee-Power and BIOS reset. Below are the steps to check and resolve the issue:
 

Remove the battery and any other peripheral device connected to the computer.
Hold the power button for 10-15 seconds and then connect only the AC Adapter and try to turn ON the computer.
If the issue persists even after performing Flee Power then resetting BIOS to its defaults should resolve the issue
Now access the BIOS menu press F2 when the Lenovo logo appears on the screen while the computer is starting up.
Then to reset the BIOS to its defaults click on ?F9? Key and select YES.
Now click on ?F10? Key to save the changes that are done in BIOS, the computer should automatically restart. Please check if the issue persists.

Hope this helps!!!
 
Do post us back if the issue still persists.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

I am having a very serious problem with the Automatic Repair Loop. Last night the computer updated but during the update I had some sort of dram problem which started a boot loop with a ram beep error. After resolving that I found myself stuck in the Automatic Repair Loop for windows 10. None of the buttons inside teh boot loop screen work. I have tried going to advanced options and restoring, no restore points available. I tried to use md backup and regedit but this wasn't an option because it is a fresh install of windows 10. I can't get safemode to boot it tells me an error has occured and says it will restart the computer to me which puts me back in the loop. I would really like to not have to install a new OS and lose everything if possible. Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Here are links to videos describing problems others have had. I tried every option in these.

ive tryed to load default BIOS, cant figure out how to start in safemode seeing as i cant get further then attempting repairs. i have no recovery disk and my only laptop capable of making a bootdisk/usb is this one i cant start. also my HDD led light is solid for about 5 seconds then will blink... i can also still hear the fans and the hdd spining up.... any help or info would be awesome.
 

Answer:black screen repair loop

"Starting automatic repairs" is usually an indication system files are corrupted or can't be read from the HDD.

I'd start with testing the HDD. You can get a bootable iso of the manufacturers disk tools from the HDD manufacturers website.

My display port monitor stopped working randomly today and usually i restart or just plug & unplug the cable and it starts working again.
Well today I tried doing so and it didn't work so I tried using HDMI, VGA etc which made me restart the computer 4-5 times in a row.
After the 6th restart it said windows repairing etc then got at a screen which said this.
I've googled it spent over 2 hours trying to fix it from doing what is said on the windows forums reddit, etc. A lot of people give up and just reformat the computer but I can't afford to do so.
I have preformed a system restore which failed. Tried some commands in cmd, tried startup repair - I even tried running it in safe mode which failed.

Hi Startan, welcome to the TSG Forums....

Is the laptop still under warranty?

If "yes" then I suggest you contact HP. No point in messing around with something that is under warranty.

If "no" then try booting into Safe Mode. You should also connect the laptop to the mains electricity supply so as to ensure that you have a good source of power.

So recently my PC wouldn't boot into my hard drive and I didn't have a USB lying around so I can clean install it, it was hanging and freezing at the bios loading screen and everything. I finally was able to boot into System Recovery using F11 and it started to do the automatically repairing your pc, then it was in an infinite loop of a screen where it basically says my BIOS, the version, then checking memory, then CPU. It was an infinite loop like I said and now whenever I boot my PC up it's stuck on that screen, it freezes right on the spot where it was checking what processor I have. I will post my specs considering it's a big help for troubleshooting - not a fan of opening my PC and removing things.

OS - Windows 8.1 PRO
MEMORY - 4GB
BIOS - Phoenix AwardBios v6.00 (2008, yeah it's quite old.)
CPU - AMD Athlon x64 +4800 Series (2 cores, 2.50)
HDD - Maxtor 350GB I believe, don't know the exact model.

I decided to look around on the internet but 90% it's people saying your computer fried and random bull, anyway thanks, hope I can fix this issue soon.. sucks too because I just bought WoW.
I don't care if all the information on the HDD gets wiped I just want my computer to be working again.
Cheers.

Answer:[Help] Stuck on Windows 8.1 Automatic Repair Loop Screen

To me it sounds like you have a hardware issue or a BIOS issue. Can you get into your BIOS by pressing F2, Del, F9, F10, or F11? (Not sure what it would be for you. It varies between BIOS manufacturers and models). Im going to lean towards hardware and say its a RAM issue. Probably a bad DIMM. If you have access to another computer, download MemTest86 and burn that to a disk and boot from it and let it test your RAM to see if it errors out at all.

Hi,

I started having a problem with my desktop. After I logged in, my screen was a dark grey, no icons, no wallpaper. My windows icons and my cursor were flashing.

I restarted my computer a few times and nothing changed. Then It started the automatic repair tool and it stayed that way in a freaking infinite loop.

I tried many things, even deactived it with: "bcdedit /set {default} recoveryenabled No"

Then is showed me this error:

"Your PC/device needs to be repaired
Operating system couldn't be loaded because a critical system driver is missing or contains errors

File: WINDOWS/system32/DRIVERS/avgmfx64.sys
Error code: 0xc000007b"

I tried to put windows 10 on a usb, but it doesn't work because I already have windows 10 installed.

I would like to know if there is an other solution apart from reinstalling everything and loosing all my programs?

Firstly boot to advanced startup options using option 6 in the following tutorial: Boot to Advanced Startup Options in Windows 10

Then Open a command prompt: Open Command Prompt at Boot in Windows 10
Then run system file checker: Run SFC Command in Windows 10
This should repair any system files that have got corrupted.

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
Problem signature 2: 6.1.7600.16385

Question: Blue Screen Loop

Hey guys, I finally get to see the blue screen of death and any help would be appreciated.

Model: Lenovo T-61, Widnows XP service pack 3

I can get to see the Windows XP loading page for a few second then it will go directly to the blue screen saying "windows shut down to prevent failure". I tried to go on safe mode and "return to previous working mode" but they are all the same.

In order to pinpoint the problem, this is what happened in detail



My laptop was infected with some fake "XP security guard" virus few days ago (eys.exe and ulx.exe) and I had successfully removed them with Malwarebytes. It must had deleted some registries in the process because my laptop was then unable to locate any .exe file, then I look up on a forum and download a registry for this, it seemingly solved the problem but after several minutes my laptop suddenly restarted and went in this dead loop.
Unlike my desktop, I can't seem to find the "disable restart for system failure" on the F8 screen. And weird enough, I can't find any restore point on my Thinkpad Rescue page (I rarely save restore points, maybe they are too old?) Please kindly advise me what I should do. Thank you.

p.s. is there anyway I can download all the registries to a USB so I can attempt to do the recovery from it??

Answer:Blue Screen Loop

Hi

1. You can try to restore a previous copy of your registry. However you will need a restore point and the Windows XP CD (for the recovery console). This is also a very complicated procedure so read through the document first before attempting it.

If you do not have a Windows XP Cd you can download the Windows XP recovery Console ISO from here.
Write it to CD using a program like ImgBurn.
Once written to CD, boot your PC with the CD (or the Windows XP CD).

Then follow the procedure here: How to recover from a corrupted registry that prevents Windows XP from starting

2. You can also try to repair your Windows XP. Once again you will need the Windows XP CD but for this procedure you will need the full, original CD.
You can read this article on how to run a repair install:

Question: Blue screen loop

Hello, My computer has been having many problems lately and I would like to go over all of them but I need immediate help with my most recent problem which is my computer is stuck in a bluescreen reboot loop. So i have read this solved thread http://www.techsupportforum.com/f10/...up-347165.html and I have the same 0x00000024 error with ntfs.sys under it and it seems that the solution is to put ntfs4dos.exe on a floppy and boot it on start up. However, my computer does not have a floppy drive. I could probably look for one in the garage but if there is a way to run the program from a usb or cd it would be very helpful. So my main question is how do I run the exe from here http://www.geekswhoknow.com/articles...error-code.htm without a floppy drive or floppy disks? I really need to get this fixed so I can get my data off these seagate drives (I even updated the firmware for these hard drives because there was a huge problem with 7200.11 seagate drives). I have further questions but I will ask them once this problem is solved...hopefully. btw my knowledge of comptuers is very limited so don'y expect me to understand everything.

Thank you for your help especially since you guys donate your own time to help others like me.

Answer:Blue screen loop

I would also like to add that the problem is occurring on a seagate st35000320AS hdd with the latest firmware (I believe) which is my second hard drive which I use as storage. The only way to get past the blue screen loop is to unplug hard drive, leaving only my main hard drive plugged in. Also, when i only have my main hard drive plugged in, the time it takes to shutdown is significantly longer taking many minutes as opposed to the seconds it used to take. Also, the hard drive that is causing the problem doesn't get recognized on start up every once in a awhile. And finally, whenever i turn on my computer there is a loud noise, (like that of a machine....like a lawn mower). the noise started occurring when i started having problems with my identical seagate hard drive last year around november. however, I believe that the noise is coming from a fan because whenever i touch the fan to stop it or tap the side of the computer where it is mounted the sound stops, but comes back the next dau when i turn on my computer.

Question: Blue screen loop

Hi, for 9 months it was working fine after upgrading from windows 8.1 to windows 10. After this certain update I noticed that my laptop slows down and freezes most of the time and I saw that the disk usage constantly stays at 100%. It always freezes whenever I try to play games like League of Legends for almost 30minutes, then I force shutdown it. I find many solutions for the 100% disk usage but unfortunately they only work for a few hours and the disk usage spiked up to 100% and froze for a long time again, and of course I force shutdown it. But this time when I booted it went to the hp screen as usual, then after that it suddenly went blue screen and it said " Your PC ran into a problem and it needs to restart. We'll restart for you. If you'd like to learn more, you can search online later for this error:NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM". After that it will return to the hp logo when you boot and this time under the logo it says "Preparing Automatic Repair", after that the screen will turn black and a cmd prompt will appear but only for like millosecond and will disappear. Then the screen will turn blue again and the sentences are the same as the first blue screen but this time the error is FAT_FILE_SYSTEM. Please help.

Hi all,

Firstly my specs:

? Windows 7 (64 Bit)
? Originally Windows 7, still running same install
? Purchased through a company that builds PC for you (pcspecialist)
? System approximately five years old
? OS install same as system age

? CPU Intel i5 (unsure of exact spec but around five years old, and I can't check due current circumstance)
? Palit GTX 470
? ASUS P7P55 LX
? Unaware of brand but 600W

? pcspecialist.co.uk

So, I originally was getting a few graphical glitching errors in a few games I've been playing recently, Company of Heroes and Red Orchestra 2: mass colour changes (which I can only describe as massive swathes of white/grey colour amassing on any 3D rendering) and hanging in the games. I only started having these problems with the installation of RO2, since I have been playing CoH fine with no problems, yet that might just be a coincidental correlation as opposed to the cause of my problems.

However, I started getting CTDs accompanied by a BSOD very shortly after. This BSOD code was 0x00000116 (VIDEO_TDR_ERROR) related to the driver nvlddmkm.sys. I also, previously to this, had a few BSODs with the error code 0x124, but these would be fairly sparse and I'm not sure these are related.

It then got to the stage where whenever I would boot into windows normally, it would spend around 5 minutes on the initial pre-logon splash screen, the display would go blank, then shut off, come back on but blank, and then BSOD with the code 0x116. ... Read more

Hi everyone,

Win 7 user here, wanting to dual boot with Windows 10 preview (on a different partition).

So I made a Win 10 usb boot disc, and it installed it fine. Played around with the new Windows for a few mins, whilst it downloaded an update, and after installing the update, it said it needs to restart, naturally. So I did.

However, since then, the PC keeps restarting, showing a Windows 10 logo, and below that is the text, "preparing automatic repair". Then it just resets, and goes in this endless loop.

Why is this happening, and how do I resolve it?

Many thanks.

Answer:Windows 10 clean install caused Repair Loop Error

Well, I thought I'd try again from scratch. I did a format of the partition. Win 10 worked fine for a while. But after rebooting, the same problem occurs. The PC just keeps restarting, with the same message, "preparing automatic repair".

Does anyone have some idea as to what could be causing the issue? Pretty stumped right now.

Hi, I desperately need someones help as I am a law student with an assignment due monday and my laptop wont start.

Hello @Tazzikinz Welcome to the HP Support forum. Thank you for posting. Could you confirm you run Windows 10 ?  If yes, was it a clean installation or you previously ran older Windows version and upgraded to Win 10 ?  What was your previous Windows ? Your problem is known as Blue Screen of Death (BSOD). BSOD is kind of Windows self-protection feature. If you received a blue screen error, or stop code, the computer has shut down abruptly to protect itself from data loss. A hardware device, its driver, or related software might have caused this error.What you describe could happen because of incompatible with Windows driver (most often) or because of hardware issue (rarely). I guess your Windows updated itself automatically and the update caused the issueor there is some hardware problem. In order to troubleshoot, I would need some specific information.  Please, check the official HP article about such issues >> http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c04593971Perform specifically step 2 and step 5 as diagnostic steps]. Post the results of the hardware checks and the details of the message BSOD that appears. Follow step 4 to use "System Restore". It will undo any recent changes that might be causing the blue screen error, including changing your settings and uninstalling recently installed software applications, or Windows Updates.  Let me know if this helps. Looking forward to your update.

Hi everyone, my computer has a ton of problems, but the one that requires the most urgency is a continuous boot loop on my secondary sata drive.
The stop error on the blue screen is 0x00000024 and also has ntfs.sys under it on the next line.Whenever my secondary sata drive is plugged in,
the computer just reboots and the only way to get my comp to start is the unplug that hard drive. I have read that one way to fix this is to run chkdsk /r,
but should I back up my data before i run chkdsk? And if yes, how do i even back up my data? Because it is a sata drive i cannot slave it. I have also read that people
with the same problem who try to put the hard drive in another computer causes that computer to boot loop too. I have read that another way to fix the problem is to put
NTFS4DOS (http://www.geekswhoknow.com/articles/stop-0x00000024-0x0000024-0x24-ntfs-file-sys-error-code.htm) on a floppy and boot it but the problem is that i have no floppy drive.
Another weird thing is that everytime i turn on my computer, there is a loud noise, it seems to have started ever since my computer has gotten a lot of problems. However, it seems to come from a
fan because whenever i touch the fan or tap the case where it is mounted the sound stops but comes back the next day when i turn on my computer.

Answer:Blue screen reboot loop

OK, first ting ill say is if the data on the hdd's is important, you are probably best of going to a professional to get it looked at as it sounds like it has died, because windows is bootlooping whenever its plugged in, which is a pretty bad sign. The couple of drives that i have looked at that were causing that problem caused it in the 4 test systems i use, however there are 2 things that i can think of that might work1. If you have a sata external drive enclosure you can swap out the old drive and connect the failing one to it, that worked once for me, the rest of the times it still bluescreened.2.This is from thcbytes, thank him if it works, make sure the second drive is connected when booting from the cdHi,I have another option for you. I would like you to boot up with another OS....Linux. You will boot off a CD-Iso. You will run that OS on Ram only. You will then be able to see your HDD, will mount it and transfer files to a flash drive. This is what you need to do...- Download on another computer Puppy Linux to your desktop.

Hi All,

I am having a problem with my pc... Its booting up fine, but then freezes even when no applications are open. I have attached this file (I found another user was advised to run this application on another post).

Today while it was crashing, it came up with the blue screen and said it had an interface loop error. It didn't give a code number for the error either, so I was unable to google it.

Any help would be appreciated

Cheers
 

Answer:blue screen - interface loop

Hi

Was the error only interface loop or could it have been interface looback?

Or was it infinate loop error?


Both things link to different aspects of your PC the interface loopback is your Network and maybe security application, whereas the infinate loop error is the graphic card, and below are some pre-emptive thougths on what to try for both those errors.


If infinate loop error, then download this Driver Sweeper and install it but dont run it, then uninstall your ATI graphic card driver, reboot into Safe Mode (F8 at boot) and run the Driver Sweeper application and remove all reminents of the ATI and if you ever had an Nvidia card that too, then reboot and reinstall the latest ATI driver for your Radeon X1650 card from here



If its the interface loopback error, reboot your modem/router, then click Start > Run and type CMD and hit enter to open a command window, then type the following and note the space before the / and hit enter after each

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
ipconfig /flushdns

then reboot and try your PC

What security softare do you have installed? make sure its updated to latest versions.

What is make and model of your PC, like Compaq, HP, Dell etc plus model number name? as you may also need to re-install the latest network card drivers.

Everytime I turn my laptop on I get the blue screen upon (or shortly after) boot reading "windows encountered a problem when starting and has shut down" with an error code starting "0X0000007F" followed by another bunch of codes unable to read before it tries to restart itself again. It is only about 3 months old and has all of my school work and resume information on it. Even though still under 1 year warranty, HP wants me to just do a system restore and I refuse to have all of my information locked away, taking up space on my hard drive. I encountered a similar situation with my COMPAQ about 8 months ago after my warranty had long expired. They did not ask for the blue screen error codes. I know that this is a step needed to FIX the problem, instead of just avoiding the easy fix. Please help me. I have school work I need to get to and can't access the information needed due to this problem. Thank you.

4 month old ASUS i7 laptop running Windows 7. Had no history of problems until it suddenly crashed today in the midst of searching the web. No porn, no weird downloads except one torrent that scanned clean on virus check. I use the computer all day, every day and it was fine until the crash. Most recent Malwarebytes scan was early this past week with no reported problems.

When it initially crashed, the screen went black then it rebooted automatically. I don't have a password setup so from the login screen it takes a moment before it switches onto the desktop when starting up. Instead of desktop, it shows the blue screen with a message that it had to shut down to avoid damage, etc. Does some kind of crash data collection very quickly then automatically reboots...over and over.

Contacted ASUS technical support and went through all their options. I was told that there is no recovery image or disk or setting on the computer or that it was damaged and the computer has to be sent in to be reformatted. It won't boot into safe mode. Tried restore to earlier setting, said it was successful but didn't change the bootup problem. Tried the automatic startup problem troubleshooter and it said there were no problems detected. Is there anything else I can do?
I can't attach a log or post as I can't boot the computer. Was using Avira with malwarebytes.

Answer:Blue screen of death loop

Hi robbins, I don't think that installing a game could cause BSOD. If this is the case, I suggest you to disable restart after BSOD. You can find it by pressing F8 before Windows loading (I don't know the exactly name of the choice, because my Windows is localized in italian).

Booted up my computer after shutting it down not even 30 minutes earlier and the computer made it all the way to the Windows Logo screen. Then it quickly shoots up a Blue screen and reboots completely. I haven't been able to get a code off of the BSOD because it flashes too quickly. Need to get this back up and running and not sure where to start.
Safe modes and Last known good configuration do not work. It still Blue screens and reboots.

Was attempting to get into the Windows XP disc and while loading it Blue Screened with
STOP: 0x0000006F.

Got Windows XP CD to work enough to make it to the Recovery Console and ran a chkdsk /p that found several errors. Exited Recovery Console and restarted from Hard drive. Attempted Safe mode with success. Wondering now if I should go about checking/repairing Registry?

Ok so I restarted again and the computer did a full boot up and seems to be running fine. I do not feel completely satisfied and fear there is still an issue that may come back up down the road. If anyone has any advise as to what I can do to check/repair/ etc please let me know.

Right, not sure whether this should be in Hardware or OS. So I'll start here.

PC (in specs) been working absolutely fine up till today. I'd left it on to go do something else, came back and it was stuck at the 'we encountered an error....' screen. No bother, rebooted and seemed ok. Then it bluescreened again. This time on reboot it bluescreened seconds after the boot up circle appeared.

Rebooted again and tried a system restore (this was the last time I could get this option). That didn't work either. Hard locked on me once it booted to desktop.

I can't even attempt a repair from USB as it bluescreens before the initial boot completes.

Running memtest gave me an error. Took out 1 stick and rerun memtest, all ok. Tried to boot windows, nope BS again, same if I try a repair.

Any suggestions? This build is only a few months old.

How would I resolve this? To give a quick back story I have already done a fair bit of repairing on this system already.

After doing this XP loaded fine (Just in a-lot worse of a picture quality) Then I re-downloaded the drivers for my computers Radeon 9800 graphics card and everything is working great, except for when I load any games then I get the blue screen.

Hi I really hope some kind and clever soul can help me - as I've been grappling with this issue for a week now and am at my wits end

System: PC. Motherboard:Asus M4A78 Pro, CPU: Phenom 9850 quad-core black edition, Bootdisk:HDD Crucial M550 128Gb SSD, Memory: Kingston HyperX 3x2Gb DIMMs, Graphics card Radeon xxxx Ti (can't remember and PC won't boot )

Over the last few weeks I noticed my PC would no longer resume from sleep correctly - fans would spin up, CDrom would initialise, but no HDMI output to screen and no response to power button - only option is to reset or hard power cycle. Setting bios (AMIbios) to S1 or S3 only prevented the issue, Auto would repeatably demonstrate the issue.

Last weekend whilst investigating the sleep issue and having to reset the PC as a result this windows 10 came up with a repair screen, successfully repaired and I was able to log in.

Hi,I recently had to format and reinstall windows XP Pro sp3 on my T60 and since then but I don't think, ever before I have started to experience the infamous ati2dvag infinite loop blue screen. I don't get it often but nonetheless have tried most everything from uninstalling and reinstalling drivers, checking BIOS and so forth.Sometime time ago I did experience Windows shutting down because of overheating but I fixed that then by cleaning out the vents using compressed air and now maintaining a CPU temperature of about 60C or less and not ever over 65C (as measured using TPFanControl). This notebook is almost exclusively used on AC power so I have noticed that when the  ati2dvag infinite loop blue screen occurs the notebook is always on battery power.Any suggestions?This problem did not occur while on battery prior to reinstalling XP and the battery still seems to be holding a good charge but does this indicate the battery is on its way out? How can I test the battery? Cheers

I have a desktop computer with Vista installed that I only use to play the Sims 1 (I know it sounds lame, but bear with me here).

Admittedly, I recently shut down my computer incorrectly (was so tired I just turned off the power strip it was plugged into), and ever since I have been stuck in this blue screen on startup loop. I can start in Safe Mode without encountering the blue screen, but that's about it.

I've tried Googling this problem, but none of the common solutions are working.
So, before you reply to this thread:

1. Yes, I have attempted a system restore. It cannot complete the system restore and it gives me an error message along the lines of "cyclic redundancy check error". I checked/repaired the disc with the command prompt, but still get the same error when trying a system restore.

2. Yes, I have attempted to use Startup Repair with my OS disc. Startup Repair either tells me it cannot solve the problem, or it tells me there is no problem.

3. "Last Known Good Configuration" on startup results in the same blue screen.

I am hoping someone has a new solution for me to try, because on most forums I have seen where people have the same problem... people just reply with "UM HAVE YOU TRIED A SYSTEM RESTORE????". Like, you think I haven't tried that?!

I am not sure if this blue screen is the result of my lazy shut down, or if that just happens to be a coincidence in timing.
Please do not suggest that I should just backup my data and... Read more
