Preferred Solution: Edge 14" Win7 pro freezes on reboot after getting the MS update

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: Edge 14" Win7 pro freezes on reboot after getting the MS update

hey hsafe,when the MS update was done, was it via the ThinkVantage System Update? Anyway, if your ThinkVantage System Update is not at version - 4.01.0015 ; kindly update it and then try again.

I am running Windows XP SP3 on a Dell Dimensions 4100. My system freezes on the Windows splash screen when ever there is an update and reboot (like windows update or Norton update or AVG update before I installed Norton).

I can boot in safe mode but cannot boot normally.

In the past when I have had this problem I was using AVG antivirus software so I thought it was AVG. I would go into safe mode, uninstall AVG and my machine would reboot. I would then reinstall AVG and everything would be fine until the next update and reboot. Now that I have Norton, I cannot uninstall Norton in safe mode.

What log or files can I look at to determine at what point my Windows XP freezes so I can isolate the offending file or driver?

Thanks

Hi Taxbert,

This is Mike from the Norton Authorized Support Team.

You should never have more than one active antivirus application installed and running or you will have conflicts and your system will not be protected. You mention that you are using Norton and AVG, so that is most likely the cause of the freezing.

What Norton product and version do you have installed? As long as you have a valid subscription to Norton AntiVirus or Internet Security (version 2006-2008) you are eligible for a free update to the 2009 version.

Please let me know which Norton product you have installed and I can assist you further.

Thanks,
Mike

This is quite possibly the strangest error sequence I've come across in all my years working with computers.

My system has issues. Unfortunately. Possibly more than one. But I do know that for about the last month, up until this morning, any attempt to turn on my system would require the user to boot into Windows, wait ~15 seconds for a hard, BSOD-inducing crash (with MEMORY_MANAGEMENT as the cause a majority of the time), wait for the system to reboot and reach the Windows boot animation, suffer yet another hard, BSOD-inducing crash (with no minidump this time, however, since it hadn't fully loaded Windows yet), and then finally reboot once more, after which the system would seem to function perfectly. My one change this morning? I removed one stick of my RAM.

Now, normally this would seem to be pretty cut and dried, but I had similar problems with this setup earlier in the year. I exchanged my RAM twice, then my motherboard, then my RAM again, which is leading me to believe that it might well be a CPU issue (note that my system is not currently being overclocked). But my Windbg skills aren't what they used to be, and I'm currently running on a spotty 3G internet connection, so my options for diagnosis are a tad limited.

Current system specifics:
i3-530 (stock)
2x2GB OCZ PC3 12800 (OCZ3OB1600LV4GK) Obsidian Series
Gigabyte P55-UD3L
Radeon HD 4850 512MB

Thoughts, O gurus of 7?

Win7 installs fine, then reboots to complete installation but then stops the loading of windows saying there was an unexpected reboot or error and windows installation cannot proceed and to reinstall windows again. This was a clean install of windows and not an upgrade.

I checked the setup error log in Panther and it said there was a [0x060675] error, which i don't know what could cause this.

Setup is

Amd X3 425

Asus M4A77D

So, earlier today, everything was fine. My computer was working normally nothing was acting up. While unplugging my laptop from the wall I dropped it, but nothing appeared to be wrong. A little while later I restarted my computer and it worked fine for about a minute and then everything froze in windows explorer, nothing would work, folders wont open task manager never appears start menu wont come up, nothing.
I booted into safe mode and everything works fine through there, so I looked around online and one suggestion was to update my BIOS so I tried to update from Dells Inspiron 1420 A08 to the newer A10 BIOS version, trying that in safe mode failed so I tried to boot normally and quickly do whatever it told me, when I tried it wouldnt restart (and still refuses too, I have to shut it down manually outside of safe mode) it said it couldnt update the BIOS version because it couldnt locate the image, but I downloaded it directly from Dells own website.
So then I tried to do a system restore, and I got the message:

The disk Vista (c:) has errors
Windows detected file system corruption on Vista (c:)
You must check the disk for errors before it can be restored.

So I clicked scan and fix, and nothing happens. (this is back in safe mode by the way) so I opened a command promp and typed sfc /scannow
and it scanned and found some errors but were unable to fix them. Details are located in the CBS.log
So I opened the log and I found the following:

Hi, the first rule if you ever drop a laptop (and it appears OK) is to take the battery out, boot from the mains if all is OK turn off add battery and reboot. Now you may have damaged the MB and or the RAM seating or HDD cable connection as well as the monitor connect cable.. etc ...etc. You can see where this is heading to the shop would be my advice.

Two Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit computers on the same network, the desktop has a printer shared that the laptop would like to access.

The oddness began after I managed to get the laptop to access the desktop via Start > Run > \\desktop, successfully connected up the printer via filesharing and tested it, but every time I restart the laptop it decides that it can't find the desktop any more.

However, if I do Start > Run \\192.168.0.6 (the IP address of the desktop) from the laptop, it connects successfully every time. I've set things up like that for now, but I can't say I've ever seen an issue like this before.

If I do a name lookup on either machine, it resolves the desktop's IP address correctly, regardless of restarting the laptop. If I do \\192.168.0.6, let that open a connection successfully, then do \\desktop, it works. If I just reboot and do \\desktop, it doesn't.

Ideally I would like it to work via computer names so that the desktop doesn't require a static IP.

Answer:Win7 <-> Win7 file sharing issue after client reboot

These days we use something called User permissions and security settings to establish safe reliable network connections.

You can just right click the folders you want to share and choose the security and permissions settings, they tend to stay put after that. Or you can click on the "share" tabs and go from there. If you are using all Windows 7 machines in this network then setting up a Home group is the way to go.

Ok, another Network problem I'm having is that the 9 shares that I have on my Win7 machine are shared among a small network with a couple of Vista machines, 1 Win7 machine and a couple of XP machines and even one Mac. Every once in a while when users on the XP machines try to use the shares, they are prompted with a username and password, and no matter what is entered they are not allowed access, even a good account and password on the Win7 machine. They are told that the shares cannot be found, however they can still ping the Win7 machine, and they previously used the shares for days without problems. A reboot of the XP machine has no effect, however rebooting my Win7 (then manually readding the shares) clears it up. Again, WHY!

This I could see as being a bug, but it's still a pretty big one. Any help would be appreciated!

I have an odd situation I have been tracking for some time and I think I have it isolated to when it will occur and when it does not. I am posting
it just to see if anyone else has this issue and knows of a fix. My guess is most people just think their PC is stuck and power off and back on to reboot.
The issue was that when my Windows 7 pro laptop applied a Defender update  the laptop took roughly 45 minutes to reboot.
What I found was the issue happens in these situations:

The Defender patch was 400KB or largerA Windows Restart is used to apply the patchIf I applied the patch via a Windows update manually, then issues a Windows RestartIf I allow the patch to apply during a Windows Shutdown, the next power on boot is delayed  
It does not happen in this situation:

I apply the patch via Windows Update, then do a shutdown to power off the unit, then power the laptop back
on, there is no issue. 
In all instances the patch is applied successfully based on what the Windows update history shows. The patch itself applies very quickly in all situations
To me it seems like a Restart after a Defender update is causing Defender to run a scan before allowing the laptop to boot. The laptop will just
stay on the Starting Windows screen with the 4 colored window for 45 minutes then boot normally. Typically running a Defender scan on the laptop takes about 45 minutes which is why I think the Windows Update\Restart sequence is triggering a scan. Normally

Answer:my thinkpad edge can't reboot.... please help!!!

Hi, 365hvacr
 
There are a few options that you could utilize for this issue. If you are trying to boot into Safe Mode to try and restore Windows to an earlier place in time, you could try booting into Safe Mode manually, which can be accomplished by tapping F8 when you turn on your system until a menu pops up asking if you want to go into Safe Mode. Select Safe Mode and see if that lets you get to your desktop.
 
Another method to accomplish a system restore will involve using WinRE (Windows Recovery Environment). This method requires a recovery disc, but you should be able to boot from the CD and use the disc to set Windows back to an earlier state.
 
The final method also requires a Windows disc, but would involve reinstalling Windows. This would remove all of your files, however.
 
Hope it helps,
Adam

Hi,

Im running windows 10 pro with the latest creators update.
I didnt have any problems but suddenly and it was before updating to the latest version of windows my edge is unresponsive after rebooting my system.

When I open edge after a reboot I can use the menus and scroll. When I load YouTube I can see the videos and scroll but cant open any of them I have to close edge and reopen it to fix the problem.

I made a reset, deleted edge and reinstalled, used ccleaner but the issue is not resolved.

Any help would be appreciated.

I have a problem with my Thinkpad Edge S430 running Fedora Linux (19 and 20). I can suspend the machine just fine, however, it wakes up automatically right after the suspend finishes. When the system runs again and I suspend again it stays in suspend. So far this could be a Linux bug. But I get the same when I shut down the machine: it turns off and the turns on automatically again after a second. Again, if I shut down after this reboot it stays powered off. Anyone else seeing something like this?

I have contacted HP about the problem, said my Windows 10 needed update (purchased a week ago), upgraded, crashing constantly using Edge- wouldn't display FB videos properly- tried IE- crashing on FB and Yahoo mail- all blue screen and reboot- have slow Internet, so took laptop to work to upgrade Windows10 and install Chrome.  Took it back home, crashing in the middle of checking my mail and playing a game.  Have run quick diagnostics, no problem.  3 updates were available yesterday from HP:  display, synaptics and graphics- when I tried to run them on the faster network at work, I got a blue screen and reboot, and no updates were available.  I have clicked in settings to stop the computer on error from restarting so I might get an error message on the blue screen, but it isn't working.  If I can't enjoy this computer, I will exchange it- or maybe not get another right now at all.  My 8-year old Compaq was trustworthy, but I dropped it, and I was hoping that this much faster machine would be good.  Is it the computer itself- Windows 10 incompatibility with AMD processor- intermittent slow Internet speeds?  At first I was using wi-fi. but am plugged into the router now.

You are trying to tell us that Windows 7 Pro installs FINE, but after updates gets hosed, then don't do the updates.

Mail setup, what are you talking about? I mean exactly what.... the web addresses, names of the software, etc.

Here's the situation. I have a 17" laptop with two Win 7 drives set up with dual boot. One is a 128gb SSD with all my work software. (AutoCad, Rhino, etc) The other is a new 256 SSD with only the Win7 OS installed. Both use the same laptop Product key.

I would like to update the new 256 SSD to Win 10 and over time transition my software to that drive. However, while I'm doing that, I'll need the other Win7 system drive to work with.

My question is, If I update the 256 SSD to Windows 10, doesn't that activation use my current Win 7 key to register? And if so, does the activated Win 10 deactivate or invalidate my Windows 7 OS Key on the other drive?

Answer:Will update Win7>Win10 deactivate second Win7 drive in a Dual boot?

Nobody seems to want to answer you mate as what you are doing is not legal.

Now then on a practical level I don't think you will have any problems because of the fact that you can reinstall your original OS with your original product key anytime you like, however I have not tested this.

I built a computer for a friend that is a student. He didn't have the OS yet but told me he could get Win7 Pro from his school. I put it together and installed Win7 Pro on it since I had a copy and told him he would just need to activate it once he got his product key. It turns out that he could get Win7 Ultimate not Win7 Pro. Can he just use the anytime update option to activate? Will it be a problem if the Win7 Pro is not activated (I read some where that you can upgrade an unactivated install)?
I have not used my Win7 Pro install yet, if it needs to be activated to use the anytime update, I can activate it with my product key so he could upgrade. Would this cause me any problems when I go to install my Win7 Pro though? (Would my Win7 Pro product key still be usable or would it be tied to the Win7 Ultimate upgrade and no longer work?)

Thanks
 

Answer:Installed Win7 pro instead of Win7 Ultimate Can I use the anytime update to activate?

I did this, sort of. I used the product key from my Pro for the Anytime upgrade program from Home. I installed Home before w7 launch date and ended up with Pro retail keys instead. It acted a little strange though (I remember I had some problems with it)...but booted up as Pro and worked OK from there.

Hi, I think that I have sleep problem with my edge. If I close lid, I can still hear hard disk clicking once in a while and CPU fan going on. I have checked all power settings and it should go sleep and nothing should prevent it going to sleep. Case might be that when closing lid it doesn't sleep but if I choose sleep from start menu it goes sleep. And I have checked all places that it should go sleep when closing lid. Thing that worries me a bit is that if I run in command prompt "powercfg -a" it reports that computer only supports S3 (hybrid sleep) and S1 and S2 modes are not supported.

New here, and am glad I found this forum before I started messing things up.  I just got the 14" Thinkpad Edge from Tiger Direct, but it came with no support IBM/Lenovo CD or Win7 CD.  I am very unhappy with Win7 and I want to just install my Windows XP Pro OS on this new laptop, but if I do that, it will, of course, format the hard drive entirely and thus wipe out all the Thinkpad/Lenovo support programs.  Is there any way to get those reloaded -- can I get a CD or download what I need from somewhere?  Another question, if I don't do that and learn to live with this, will the pictures and video I edit on this new Edge be compatible with my other computers, which are all 32-bit?  We store a lot of pictures and video on our laptop when vacationing, then edit them all on the desktop when we get home.   I understand I can change my photo and video programs to "run as an XP program," but I'm more concerned about the 32-bit/64-bit incompatibility issue for photos and video, as, for example, an .mp4 video I made on my desktop will not play on the new Edge -- has audio only, no video.  Is this a compatibility issue with Quick Time, which isn't compatible with Win7?  It defeats the purpose of having the new laptop if the pictures and video I take on vacation I can't view anywhere but ON the new laptop. Also, even if I wipe out the current OS on the Edge and go to XP on the currently 64-bit Edge,...

Okay, a School-issued ThinkPad Edge. It was bought new with a Windows 7 and an intel core i3 processor. I download Skype, and part of the set-up process is the mic part, and that's how I found out that the BUILT IN mic DID NOT work. I've looked around,
but all of the solutions I see I've either already tried, or wouldn't work in this situation (For example, the computer's original OS is Win7, it's not going to be an outdated sound card!) Does anybody have a specific solution? I've tried going in and messing
with the sound levels and the boost, I've made sure the mic wasn't muted. I even have the little green check in that one part saying that it should be working! I have no idea what else to do, and this is a serious issue for a lot of people. I can survive without
the mic for a while, but not forever. I would also appreciate it if I didn't get a hundred people saying that they're having the same issue. If you have a suggestion on how to fix it, then great! Maybe complain a little about your issues with the mic as you're
doing so, but if you're not giving a possible solution, then
please don't say anything here. Hope I get an answer soon! <:)

HelloI bought a thinkpad Edge 15" last year and It worked just fine for one year (I usually use it about 5-10 hourse a day).configuration:CPU: Core i5 M430 @ 2.27GHzRAM: 4GB DDR3 1066 (macron chips)VGA: ATi Radeon HD 4500HDD: 500GB 7200rpmnow I'm faceing with a really strange problem which made me ask here. It is about 10days that my Laptop freezes with no reason. sometimes it work fine houres and houres without any problem, and sometimes it freezes a lot. sometimes when it freeze i turn it off by power button and when i want to turn it on it shows just a black screen and the fan's speed goes high and restart automatically.I have win7 64bit and ubuntu 11.04 (I'm not sure). if there weren't any freeze and stall in ubuntu I would get sure that it's windows and maybe driver problem, but the same problem happens in ubuntu. I also used ThinkVantage Toolbox to test my system and the result was the same. one time it freezes while I was testing CPU, the other time It happened in Graphic test. but most of the time while I was testing the Memory it freezed in different steps of test.I also used memtest86 in grub screen but it never finished.I play games like MW2 and my notebook gets hot but it never caused any reset or thermal shutdown.I'm really sad with this condition and need your help.thanks in advance

I have a W7 pro PC acting as a file server on my LAN. If it ever reboots because of updates it is not seen on the network.
I have to RD into it, open explorer, view the network and then other PCs on the LAN can see it.
Actually....all that may not be necessary. Maybe simply RD'ng into and logging in is what makes it visible. Probably the case.

How do I configure it so I don't have to do this. Can I map a drive on the server and have it reconnect at logon? Seems a dirty way to do it.

Thoughts?

Hi again, still not solved my reboot problem. I've got a dual OS desk top with win7 on one drive and XP on the other. After switching on the Win7 OS it runs fine for a while and then reboots itself for no apparent reason. I always get the Windows has recovered from an unexpected shutdown window with some info in it but nothing happens when I ask it to search for a solution. The BCCode is 124 if that is any help. If I start with XP I don't get the problem. I've searched online for answers but there are so many that I'm really at a loss now. All the drivers are up to date. Help please.

Answer:Win7 reboot just after switching on

As that usually means a hardware issue and the only item different is the Hard Drive with W7 on it, I would run a Disk Check on that to check for bad sectors.
Also ensure all the W7 drivers are up to date as that could be the cause.

I just bought an ultrabay caddy for my Thinkpad Edge E530 (3632QM i7 quad core). The ultrabay first did not fit inside but I removed some plastic juts from it with a knife and drill . Now it fits in the slot, and the hard drive does seem to work when the machine is on. The only problem is that when you try to shut down the computer or reboot, it "thinks" for about 10 minutes before it actually shuts down the computer or reboots. I tried many things, I installed OS from scratch and it still does it. Immediately when I disconnect the ultrabay and put the machine on again the problem disappears. I tried changing various settings from BIOS but it does not help. I disabled rapidstart and removed the 16GB SSD, no change. OS is Win7-64bit. Any idea what could be causing this...? I think the most logical quess would be that something assumes that there is still an optical drive inside the computer even that there isn't and this causes the delay. Although I really don't understand how this could be as SATA is standard bus and you should be able to connect anything into it.   By the way the Ultrabay i bought  is made by Leicke:http://www.amazon.co.uk/LEICKE-Ultrabay-Enhanced-Adapter-Thinkpad/dp/B007II8O32/ref=sr_1_9?ie=UTF8&q...  BIOS version is the latest (was it 2.08 or something...?)  

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E530 + Ultrabay extra hard drive = 10minute freeze on reboot...?

OK, so I examined the issue more and it seems to be about power management. When I disable Intel Speedstep and  the setting below it (CPU Power Management was it...?), this problem disappears. I also noticed that the same delay is when I try to get the computer to sleep. Of course it is not really good idea to use a laptop without these settings being on so another solution must be found. I guess there must be BIOS support for a hard drive in the DVD-bay in order for it to work with power management enabled. The question is that 1. should there be such a support...? 2. if there isn't will there be with a BIOS update...? Btw.. I tested with 2 hard drives with both the same issue.   If it becomes clear that there is no way to get a hard drive to work in DVD-bay with power management on, can you make such configuration that you buy 256GB msata SSD, install OS into it, and have a hard drive in the normal HD-bay...? Or would the machine go crazy when it tries to search for a non-existing rapidstart partition from msata...?

Recently, my school kids inherited a Dell system running XP SP3, and things have been generally fine. I had them install AVG 2011 free and MBAM as preventative measures; but left all existing (and some unused/unnecessary) programs. Last week if began running sluggishly, and so I rebooted. The computer seemed to stall after loading Windows fully and I had to reboot again into safe mode, updated MBAM and scanned. After finding some problems, quarantined and rebooted, the computer loads WinXp fully but doesn't respond to opening files or programs such as Mozilla. Unable to access "taskmanager"; Couldn't find it in the Windows file; and installed TaskManagerFix (which improved the accessing tskmngr). The computer under full windows still might open files after 5-10 minutes or completely freeze (clock stopped) and have to hard reboot. The only way to access the machine is thru Safe Mode which is possible with no problems. I have attached original MBAM scan log.

In Safe Mode, no problems found with AVG. Additionally, I installed and ran SAS, found problems, and after rebooting, SAS had been removed(?) and the log seems lost; I reinstalled and found nothing. Some of the issues I remember seeing related to Trend Micro AV 2007 which I can't seem to remove as some files are missing. (I assumed missing links/registry items.)

Hi! So I have these strange problems with my E530. Everytime when I turn on the computer after longer brake (2-3 days) it starts normally but when it gets to home screen Bluescreen pops up. I haven't yet copied the error code but when this happens next time I will copy it and add it here. Also the booting time is way longer than when I bought this computer. It takes now 2-3 minutes. When the computer was new it take under a minute. Is this normal? The computer is now 9 months old. Then there is also this problem. When the computer is in normal use the screen sometimes freezes for like 10-15 sec. Mouse doesn't move, music freezes and everything that is running freezes. Then suddenly everything goes back to normal. Music starts to play from the place where the track was before the freezing happened. All of these problems have happened now for like 1 moth.

Hi-  I've recently formatted my hard drive and put my own copy of Win7 on my Thinkpad Edge 14 (0579-A62). There's no more recovery partition. After being surprised that Win7 didn't have any built in drivers for the display or WiFi, I plugged an ethernet cable in and went to the Lenovo support site. I tried all of the Networking: WLAN drivers but none of them let wireless work. I installed the Intel PROSet software and it just says "Driver is not installed" so I'm assuming it doesn't have anything to do with the WiFi key on the keyboard. Any ideas?

PS: The mouse cursor freezes while using the mouse pad, however if I use the trackpoint it never freezes.  So it must be some problem with the pad itself.

I've used this laptop for about two weeks worth of gentle use and now, after booting up, trying to do almost ANYTHING freezes the laptop, the things that don't cause it to freeze do nothing. I can't even open the START menu, just right clicking ont he desktop causes it to give me the 'processing' circle and doesn't stop, meaning I can't click on anything anymore. Even just trying to bring up the touch keyboard freezes the laptop, (the keabord also stops working once I reach the desktop). Again, this is only after about two weeks of use compared to my old laptop, (the one I'm using now), which I have admittantly abused for five-ish years and it still works fine, not perfectly but it works. EDIT: So I managed to get lucky and it didn't freeze long enough for me to get into the settings and start a reset, the screen says, "This won't take long", but I suspsect it may take a while.

Answer:New Lenovo Edge 2-1580 Freezes on Desktop

Hi Xros,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Forums.
 
Try the BIOS update.
When in Safe mode, remove your current video driver. Boot up to your regular desktop, which should now be in VGA mode (all video cards have a default VGA mode, when you don't have a driver installed). If the desktop is now not frozen then that helps prove it was your video driver being the problem. See if that fixes the problem.
 
Let us know how you get on.

Friends, I'm running Win7 Home Premium (x64), with McAfee Security Center 12.8.  I recently noticed the security settings were changed (IE not allowing downloads, not allowing print, etc.).  So, I downloaded (via Firefox) anti-Malwarebytes and started to get notices that fff55.ee was being blocked (along with some other sites).  I'm current with all Windows and Java updates. I ran an Anti-Malwarebytes scan which came back as fixing the problems, but upon reboot the fff533.com is still being blocked (meaning it's still present).  How can I remove it for good?  Here's the scan log: Malwarebytes Anti-Malwarewww.malwarebytes.orgProtection, 11/8/2014 6:53:34 PM, SYSTEM, JP1-PC, Protection, Malware Protection, Starting,Protection, 11/8/2014 6:53:34 PM, SYSTEM, JP1-PC, Protection, Malware Protection, Started,Protection, 11/8/2014 6:53:34 PM, SYSTEM, JP1-PC, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, Starting,Protection, 11/8/2014 6:53:34 PM, SYSTEM, JP1-PC, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, Started,Update, 11/8/2014 6:53:36 PM, SYSTEM, JP1-PC, Manual, Rootkit Database, 2014.9.18.1, 2014.11.8.1,Update, 11/8/2014 6:53:44 PM, SYSTEM, JP1-PC, Manual, Malware Database, 2014.9.19.5, 2014.11.8.6,Protection, 11/8/2014 6:53:44 PM, SYSTEM, JP1-PC, Protection, Refresh, Starting,Protection, 11/8/2014 6:53:44 PM, SYSTEM, JP1-PC, Protection, Malicious Website Protection, Stopping,Protection, 11/8/2014 6:53:44 PM, SYSTEM, JP1-PC, Protection, Malicious...

Hi

I have a problem in reinstalling Win7 in that I just can't. I have started with a disk which has nothing whatsoever on it. I have then started installing Win7

The installation goes pretty well up to the point of its SECOND reboot prior to which it is Completing Installation. On rebooting for the SECOND time it comes up with the Win7 logo and the hard drive led is flickering quite well. Then the Win7 logo vanishes leaving me with a black screen and the hard drive LED continues flickering for a while and then stops and that is as far as it will goand it has now been in that state for the last 30-45 minutes and no-one will convince me that it hasn't just stopped. So far I have tried reinstalling four times, twice with an SSD and twice with a hard drive and each time it has stopped at exactly the same point.

I should also add that I am using an Upgrade Family version of Win7 and have used the disk on two other PCs to a clean install using the double install method. However, this install I can't do for the first time.

The system (my husbands) comprises the following main items:

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo E8400
Mobo: MSI MS-7514
RAM: 4GB
Graphic Card: NVidia (can't remember the model but its no slouch with 1GB memory)
Monitor: Iiyama E2407HDS
Keyboard & Mouse: Medion wireless
PSU: Arctic 700W (I think)
Hard Drives: 1 x Seagate 500GB - the main drive; 1 x Seagate 1TB; 1 x Samsung 1TB; 128GB Crucial M4 SSD recently acquired

Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can please? ... Read more

Answer:Win7 installation stalls at second reboot

I'm not familiar with "Upgrade Family" version of Windows 7. I'm guessing there is a limit on how many installs you can do? Maybe 3?

Are you getting any specific error messages?

Have you disconnected all possible external devices--external drives, printers, etc?

Have you tried to install with only 1 stick of RAM?

What was on this hard drive previously? Vista? A single partition? Linux?

lost icons from desktop . After awhile happened onto the control panel radio button saying dont display hidden files and folders . set that to display and the desktop icons reappeared . I assume whatever malware or virus went through the files was setting their attributes to hidden . I now have 43 infected files including ntuser.dat . I went to each icon which was dimmed on the desktop looked at the properties and took off the hidden tick box this made the icons appear brighter . now how can it get the ntuser.dat file fixed ??

Over the past couple of weeks my PC would go through a reboot loop after a Windows Update. I thought it was a virus of some kind so ran various utilities to get rid of and make sure the system was clean. Yesterday I decided to let Windows update again. As it shut down 23 updates were applied and I restarted the system with no issues. Then I noticed there were more updates so I shut it down and allowed another 53 updates. This time whenI restarted the PC I'd see the Gateway logo then I'd get the screen that says the system wasn't shutdown properly do I want to start in safe mode, etc etc. No matter what I do it just keeps rebooting with the same screen. I tried Win7 repair disk with no luck. What I did find was startup repair found the following root cause; "The partition table does not have a valid System Partition". I tried running Macrium Reflect rescue disk to repair the MBR with no luck.

Does anyone know why the updates are causing this to happen and how to fix it?

Thanks

Answer:Reboot Loop after Win7 Updates

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
I have read some asus mother boards I assume that have a 100mb efi system reserved partition instead of a 100mb ntfs partition are seeing secure boot errors

I only have C drive or partition on a x99 sabertooth and no problems.
But most needed to disable secure boot to rectify the issue.
Or switch the os type to Other os instead of windows uefi compatibility mode.

Also disable fast start I believe might help

Ultimately there was a Recommended up "which these should be avoided" for bitlocker that might of caused the issue.

So I order the upgrade version since it's at a discounted price. I burn the ISO at 2x speed and get no errors with it. I pop it in and restart. Then I proceed through the installation. I choose Custom Install and it goes and nothing fails it. Then it restarts and I get the Starting Windows screen, but then it all goes black. I've rebooted and the same thing happens. Any idea what's going on? It never goes to the setup portion of the install after it copies the files, etc.

Hi all,

I've just put together a new PC, but an having a problem with it rebooting itself. It usually happens within 3-30min of the system starting up.

The setup is a brand new MOBO, CPU, PSU, RAM, HDD and DVD-RW. I'm using an older GPU.

My specs:
OS - Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
CPU - Intel Core i3 2100
MOBO - GB Z68X-UD4-B3
RAM - 4 x Kingston HyperX Blue KHX1600C9D3B1K2 2GB DDR3-1600
GPU - XFX GeForce 8600GT XXX Edition (PV-T84J-UDD3)
HDD - WD Caviar Green 750GB 64MB/SATA-6G
PSU - Antec High Current Gamer 520W
Fans - 2 x Thermalright X-SILENT 140mm, 3 x 120mm (variety of brands)

To root out the problem, I tried running the PC in safe mode; this did not result in any reboots for the 2 hours I left it in that state.

What diagnostics can I run to root out the problem? Unfortunately, I don't have any spare parts to sub in and thereby expose the guilty piece of hardware (if that's the issue).

Thank you for your help, guys.

Answer:Win7 Automatic Reboot (All New Hardware)

I could also mention that I'm installing Windows off a burned DVD (downloaded the ISO off MS website). I've used this disc once before on a different build and it didn't give me any problems.

I've reinstalled the OS three times, reformatting the HDD before each. I've also run a memory test and it went through twelve passes with no problems reported.

I just tried to upgrade to Windows 7 Pro 64 on my PC (previously running Windows XP Pro 64). part way through my install it tried to reboot and has now entered a continuous reboot cycle immediately after flashing the initial motherboard welcome screen. None of the keyboard shortcuts work to access the BIOS, boot menu, etc. It doesn't seem to even get far enough to connect to the hard drive or CD ROM. I also don't see any error messages, it just reboots without warning. Any ideas what's wrong/how to fix it?

Answer:Reboot loop trying to upgrade to Win7 Pro X64

If you cannot even get into BIOS with the keyboard, then this means your keyboard is 1) connected to your PC thru USB and legacy USB support is not enabled in BIOS.2) defective.3) working but you do not press the correct key for BIOS entry.What you can do now is, 1) find an USB/PS/2 adapter and connect keyboard to PS/2 port on M/B.2) Replace defective keyboard.3) Press the correct key for entering into BIOS.After your keyboard works, start your PC with your Win 7 disk and try to make a clean installation of Windows 7. You cannot upgrade from XP to Win 7. When you boot to Win 7 disk, choose Custom (Advanced) installation and then select Drive Options, Format, etc.Hope the above helps. RegardsSuatCINI

I have a 32bit XP installed in C: and I want to install 64bit Win 7 on D:. I have used the usb download tool to make a bootable usb drive and installed Win7 till the 1st reboot. However after the reboot, it just returns to page 1 of the installation (select language, drive to install into etc). If I change the boot priority to HDD first, then it just boots into XP as if nothing has ever happened.

I have tried searching for the answer for more than 5 hours now and all the fixes dont seem to work. It is as though my computer cant detect that Win 7 is installed halfway.


PC Specs: E6750 C2D , Gigabyte G41-MTS2PT, 4GB ram, Sapphire 5750 512mb. 2x 160gb hdd.

Is there something I can do from windows XP that can help progress this setup?

Thank you very much!

Answer:Win7 setup does not continue after first reboot.

Have you formatted the USB Drive to NTFS format?

You can read the procedure to install Windows 7 on a USB Drive at How To Boot And Install Windows 7 From USB Flash Drive or http://maketecheasier.com/updated-bo...ive/2009/09/12

The procedure is fairly complicated. It would be much easier to install Windows 7 on another hard disk partition.

So, it finally booted into Windows, although very slowly. Now I am in, but my 2nd drive isn't showing up in Device Manager or anywhere else. any ideas?

Hi.
Two days ago my compi got very unresponsive so I rebooted it.
I have a 4 year old Dell studio XPS 7100 running win7 (x64).
After the reboot I noticed that the startup screen was different i.e. was very low graphics quality, the 4 colored windows icon did not appear. It only displays a white bar filling and says windows is starting but the time this takes seems a bit too fast to look proper IMHO. After the boot i end up on a black screen with only the mouse cursor visible. I can move it around but nothing else works (no right-click or taskmanager). After searching dozens of forums to fix this I am at a loss. Here is what I have tried so far.

System-repair: I can access the win7 repair screen via F8. However, starting windows in safe mode as well as trying to use the repair option results in the KSOD. Putting the VGA to low resolution did not help either.

Recovery-CD: I got a Win7 x64 recovery CD and it boots alright but after the boot the windows screen doesnt appear. instead i get the KSOD again . Btw i did not forget to switch boot devices in the BIOS Just for fun, I unplugged the HD from the computer and surprisingly, this made the boot-CD go into the welcome screen. However this is obviously not the solution I am looking for this I'd have no HD to do a clean install.

Answer:Win7 KSOD after reboot. No recovery possible!?

First thing i would try is to try and prove the HDD, sounds like you could have a defective HDD if the system will run bootable tools when its unplugged
Go to the hdd manufacturers website and download there tools software for their drives, most have a bootable option, then try to boot it and check your drive

For example seagate offer seatools utilities for their drives SeaTools | Seagate

First issue is that I need to use a specific older driver for my AMD graphics card and windows 10 continues to update the driver automatically and causes my system to crash. I've gone through {Control Panel-Devices & printers}, selected my machine, then right clicked to Device Installation Settings and selected "no, let me choose what to do". This has no effect as windows continues to update the driver daily or anytime I search for updates. Is there a specific port I can block or cmd line to run?

Second issue, on the windows update window, the feature is frozen on Service Pack 1 for MS Office 2013 (KB2850036) 64-bit edition @ 61%. It's been like this for a week. I've restarted the machine several times and seems to do nothing. Any suggestions would be very helpful.

Hi my name is Luca, I'm italian, so forgive me if I can't speak english correctly.
Three weeks ago I bought a new computer (custom build).

From the beginning I've been experiencing an annoying problem:

My computer ramdomly freezes, both audio and video stops working properly: video freezes while audio loops for about 30 seconds then it stops playing.

This problem doesn't occur under specific circumstances.

I've tried to find the problem but I've ran out of ideas.
Here is what I've already tried:


HD tests:
-Windows Error Checking, result: no errors.

-WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostic for Windows, 3 times.
The computer froze during the first two test. The third time the test completed succesfully, result: no errors.

-HD Tune Pro 5.50 trial version, result: no errros.

RAM tests:
-Memtest86+ for 6-7 hours: three passes and half, result: no errors.

GPU and CPU tests:
-3dmark vantage test, here's the link: AMD Radeon R7 260X video card benchmark result - AMD FX-8320,Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. 970A-UD3P


I've tried to reinstall a different version of the O.S thinking that the previous .iso was corrupted; after checking the new one with a SHA1 test, I installed it properly.


I thought the problem was caused by a faulty drivers installation, so I've tried to reinstall the drivers after a fresh installation of the O.S. (I've used both drivers from the manufacturer's website and drivers found on the cds shipped with the hardware components)

Answer:sometimes freezes, sometimes won't reboot-no patrn

well as to the freezing... this is usually determined by your hardware capabilities / software you are trying to use. To resolve this, your options are pretty much add more hardware or use less programs. You might want to run Adaware or Spybot to make sure junkware isn't slowing you down. A lot of times antivirus does constant background scanning to that can slow you down. One thing that might help to is just a complete format / reinstall, that might help both problems. Just burn off anything you don't want to lose to CD or whatever and then try formatting and reinstalling Windows. The power supply might be the problem, but it's hard to say for sure w/o testing. They aren't that expensive so just go buy one and try it. If the prob fixes then you're set and if it doesnt, then just keep the psu or return it note: rather than unplugging have you tried holding in the power button for 5-10 secs. normally that'll force a power down rather than having to reach around and unplug, just for convienence.

Hi everyone,

I installed Kerio personal firewall on my Win NT, SP6, PIII

After a restart, the computer now methodically freezes at the VERY END of booting. It looks like when this newly installed program starts to load, it freezes the computer.

I tried booting it for the NT Setup floppy disks, through the Repair installation option... it's not finding anything wrong with registry or hard drive, etc.

Is there some kind of a Safe Mode analog for NT, so I can uninstall that program before it begins to load and locks the computer?

Any ideas will be appreciated! I know I can always reinstall the operating system from scratch (and actually I should upgrade to XP too), but is there a less radical way to solve the problem?

Thanks a million!

It's a hidden file anyway and the attribute would have to be removed, eg:

attrib -h c:\boot.ini
edit c:\boot.ini

http://www.winguides.com/registry/display.php/87/
http://www.mydesktophelp.com/tips/misc06.htm

You might try booting in VGA mode, which will get to Windows if the problem is display driver related.

Also it's possible you might be able to edit the boot.ini file using bootcfg

I'm not really familiar with what it can and can't do, but have a gander here:

I'm having ongoing stability problems with Vista SP1 on my Lenovo T500 laptop.

About 80% of all reboots end with the system freezing. With the other 20% the system boot fine and remains totally stable until the next reboot.

The freeze takes place 1-2 minutes after the desktop appears. The system goes into a hard stop and becomes unresponsive even to Ctrl-Alt-Del. Occasionaly there is a BSOD rather than a hard stop.

Booting in safe mode works fine 100% of the time.

The system diagnostics report in the Control Panel Reliability and Performance applet reports a number of errors relating to the Microsoft 6to4 Adapter and Microsoft ISATAP Adapter ( see attached text file). I've checked for a driver update for these devices but Windows reports I am using the latest version.

To assist in diagnosis I have downloaded and run BSOD_Vista_v2-2_jcgriff2_.bat from this forum and a zip of the output file directory is attached.

Lenovo's response is the usual "Do a system revert to the ex factory state and then call us again." Ha, ha.

This one has got me beat. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hello,
Every I plug in a second monitor, the monitor works, but then windows edge freezes up and creates a do-loop that prevents me from seeing the start menu or opening anything other than what is on the screen. I have looked at the event log and this is what it says:
MicrosoftEdgeCP.exe

ntdll.dll
10.0.15063.447

Is there anything I can do to stop microsoft edge from creating this huge issue when I plug in second monitor?

Hello,after installing several Windows-updates I now have a strange problem with my E330 (hope my description is understandable):The system boots up and lets me switch to the desktop as usual.But then any action (e.g. starting a program) results in a 'waiting'-cursor and takes quite some time to finish. Even a simple click on the desktop.After opening the Windows-Explorer or Total-Commander it looks like the programs crashed: The window show up but without real content apart from the button bars, and the titlebar says 'not responding'. But after a while the programs continue and show the content of the harddrive. It feels like they wait for the harddrive to respond.Opening the Disk Management is similar: the information about the installed drives takes about a minute to show up.The task manager doesn't show any suspicious disk activity or any process that stalls the system.Then I thought that maybe there's a problem with the SSD-Cache (I have a 16GB SSD serving as a cache) so I started the ExpressCache-commandline tool. But surprisingly that one now says 'no valid license key'.Returning to a restore point also resulted in an error-message.So something is obviously wrong with the whole system.I bought the notebook half a year ago and don't use it very often. This was the second time I installed any updates. Unfortunately I have no idea where to start searching for the cause of this problem(s) and hope to get some ideas here in the forum. I don't think it's a hardware-problem s... Read more

Hello everyone, I had an issue with my Thinkpad Edge Lenovo laptop about a month ago, as it couldn't turn on successfully (was showing a black screen only when the power button was pressed). As a result, due to the fact that my laptop was under warranty, I sent it to the Lenovo repair centre, where they replaced the motherboard and keyboard (this was shown on the repair sheet that was received along with the laptop).When I received my laptop, I realized that it was freezing every 1 second, which was very frustrating as I couldn't even move the mouse to where I wanted, and generally I wasn't able to perform any tasks at my laptop at all!As a result, I decided to replace my hard drive as I thought that maybe this was the problem. I bought an SSD hard drive, installed windows 10 on it and again the same problem exists!The laptop freezes intermittently every 1 second and I cannot actually do anything on it! My warranty expires in 5 days and I am really worried. Is there anything I can try to do on my laptop to fix this issue?Or shall I try ringing Lenovo again? Thanks a lot

Laptop freezes. sound freezes every few seconds. Even mouse, key board wont respond every few seconds. I ran bios tests etc. RAM, HDD tests are successful. I think its something to do with Lenovo s/w or Windows 7 Home Premium OS. Please help. Thanks,.Sushil.

Answer:Thinkpad Edge E530 system freezes every few seconds

is the laptop on your lap? If so, disable the HDD protection. If it is on, and your laptop moves a bit, it will temporarily freeze the laptop hdd.

I upgraded to Windows 10 from Windows 7 on an HP all in one desktop. I am using MSN as my home page and Bing as my search engine. I browse the internet with no problems and close out. After I close out the internet and re-enter the internet, everything freezes up. I have to use disk cleanup and cleanup the disk and the system, then I have to use "more" to clear bing history and browsing history in advanced settings to get everything working again. Why is this annoying problem happening and how can I fix it??

Computer ran fine in the am. Shut down and restarted in the pm. Boot to windows was no slower than normal. When you click on any executable, program takes forever to load. For example, after clicking Outlook 2007, about 10 minutes later I can actually see my emails. Move the mouse to click and open an email, cursor disappears then reappears about 50 seconds later. Maybe 5-7 minutes later, the email message will open. The same scenario occurs for Task Manager, Windows Explorer, Firefox, etc.

Machine: HP Pavilion dv5000 (laptop), AMD Turion 1.79GHz, RAM 2GB.
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit (All current updates installed)

In Safe Mode, machine seems to be operating at normal speed. Reboot to normal Windows, it's still ridiculously slow.

From Safe Mode, ran Webroot, Spybot, and Malwarebytes. Only thing found was some cookies.

Earlier today, managed to run a few things from normal Windows.
Using BitDefender 2010; defrag accomplished, registry cleaner, cleaned cookies/temp files and virus scan (none found).

CHKDSK and rebooted. No disk problems found. Currently running WD Disk Utility.

Last program installed (5 days ago): Updated iTunes program

Ran msconfig and turned off any unneeded start-up programs.

Installed the CPU Speed gadget and noticed the CPU going to 100% on several occasions.

No improvements made so far.

Because it worked fine before I rebooted and now its crazy slow, it's got me scratching my head. I thought virus ... Read more

Answer:WIN7. Fine before reboot. Now extremely slow.

First, try this to see if Task Manager can identify the hog:

Quote:




Task Manager:
Also, you can monitor the system for excessive resource consumption. To do this, open up Task Manager by right clicking on the Task Bar.
Then select the Processes tab.
Then select the "Show processes from all users" button (in the lower left)
Then select the View menu item, then select "Select columns"
In the Select columns window, place checkmarks next to I/O Reads and I/O Other.
Click OK to accept the changes.
Resize the Task Manager window so you can see the most of the columns.
Wait for the system to freeze.
Look at all of the columns to see if there's anything that looks excessively high - if so, let us know the Image name of the process.
FWIW - System Idle Process is supposed to have high CPU readings - anything else with high CPU readings is an issue.




If that doesn't work, we can try XPerf (more info here: http://www.carrona.org/xperf.html ).

Hi,This is my first post here. After having issues with my computer last night and googleing the problem today, I found this forum and I noticed that people were receiveing some very helpfull tips here so I figured I'd give it a shot I have a Sony VAIO -laptop with Windows 7 64bit and MSE.Last night I was surfing the web when suddenly I reveiced a fake antivirus -notification from something called Live Security Platinum. At the same time I noticed that MSE seemed to be turned off somehow and not reacting in any way.After using google I used the steps in the following link to try to remove this: http://www.myantispyware.com/2012/06/01/how-to-remove-live-security-platinum-virus/These steps seemed to work but after rebooting I still noticed a shortcut "Live Security Platinum" in the Start Menu.MSE was still not working properly and I was also not able to turn windows firewall on, so I uninstalled MSE, downloaded it again and installed it. Shortly after launching it windows alerted "windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart in one minute".MSE alerts that it found a threat and I think the name was something like "sirefef" but when I try to remove it with MSE the status bar never makes it more than half way before the system reboots.I also downloaded MalwareBytes again and managed to get it installed but there is not enough time to get the scan done before the shutdown.I have tried starting the computer in safe mode, safe mode w/n...

I've posted elsewhere, no answers, so I thought I would try here...

I rebooted my Win7 x64 machine the other day.

It acted funny after boot. Device manager shows about 10 usb devices and my ethernet motherboard nics (2 of them) as 'error 10, cannot start'

If I disable and reenable each one at a time, it all comes back, until the next reboot, where the problem happens again.

Anyone every seen this? Or come across a fix for it. Obviously the devices are fine, just some sort of startup timing issue

Thanks in advance

Answer:win7 x64 needs devices disabled/enabled after reboot, why?

I had a similar issue with my Asus P5K Deluxe. seems that if there are a lot of usb devices connected the bios does not initialize them correctly. I flashed my bios to the latest asus version and that corrected the usb initialization problem.
Check the bios on your mobo and see if you have the latest version compared with Asus website.

Please Rep. me if this helps you out.

I am having trouble installing updates. I use Windows XP mostly but when I go back to Windows 7 I have 9 updates to install. They go through the install procedure but apparently does not install because the same thing happens again when i access Windows 7. I looked at the update history and it shows that mostly the failed updates has to do with office 2003, word viewer 2003, excel 2003 and ect.What causes this failure to update?

Hey, I have two questions:

I am running Win7 dualbooted with WinXP, everything works fine. I want to get rid of the XP partition, and keep the Win7 one only, but there is a problem. THe partition on which XP is installed is set as system and active. I've googled around but I've found no easy solutions to this. Any ideas on how to do this without reinstalling the OS?

My second question would be about the Win7 update: I installed the 7100 build, when it got released, but as I saw now, the latest builds are like 7200+. Are the changes updated on my build somehow, or I would have to reinstall to have the new build?

Thx.

To see the changes in the different builds, you'd need to install those builds. Its not really cruicial, but there a few noticable differences once you get to 7232. It just feels more stable.

And to fix your boot problem, PLEASE HAVE SOMEONE CONFIRM THIS BEFORE DOING IT, I'm pretty sure if boot into windows 7 and you open computer, right click the white space and hit properties to open the 'system' page, then in the left panel click on advanced system settings. A new window will come up. make sure the advanced tab is selected, and hit settings under startup and recovery. There will be a new window with a box that says default operating system. On yours it should say xp. Open the box and choose Windows 7 and that SHOULD fix your problem. please have someone confirm this tho, I dont ... Read more

There is a computer in one of my buildings which appears to start up normally. The thing appears to run normally for about ten minutes then freezes or hangs. Won't Ctrl-Alt-Delete, pulling power plug and re-attaching after 10 seconds then attempting to cold boot seems to have no effect. I can hear the fan whirring, though sometimes it makes a lot of noise (when it boots ok and works,) but I can get no video. This happened before and someone decided to replace the monitor, which I knew then was not the problem. Question: Bad Video Card? Or what else might it be?

Hi,

I have Medion SIM2090 Notebook which comes with vista pre-installed.
I used this for quite some time and it had gotten very slow with general usage & had spyware pop-up alerts.
As i had nothing important on the machine, i decided to do a full format and re-install windows BUT i wanted to install windows XP.
SO i started the process where the XP installation began, i selected the drive to format & install XP onto & then the file extraction process began.
BUT when it went to the first reboot the notebook booted up, got to the "press any key to boot from CD" but then freezes here. It just does not proceed to the installation setup. No error msgs occur & there's no odd sounds.
I decided to try the Vista installation dvd instead (provided as a recovery cd for the notebook).
BUT this again wnet through the 1st part where the notebook boots up, runs off the cd, selected the drive, extracted the files & then when it asks for a reboot it restarts the machine but when you get to the "press any key to boot from CD" stage, the system freezes and there is no OS to go into.
I have tried removing the CD after the reboot but it still freezes without the "press any key to boot from CD" msg appearing.
I tried a different dvd player (i had one spare) but got the same result, i've tried checking the hard drive by running a HDD sector checking tool with no errors & i've tried the installation several times now but with the exac... Read more
