I've never had an easy use with this PC eversince I purchased it. It first rejected Windows 7 to be installed due to BIOS incompatibility which I had been warned before. I flashed the new BIOS version shared across the forum that worked for some people, it worked for me too. Then just yesterday when I turned it on, it went into Lenovo logo for few seconds then restarted. It kept repeating the boot loop before I ran the power down to shut it completely. Already ran a system diagnose but found nothing. This already occurred before when I had to perform a windows fresh reinstallation for a constant fix, it runs normally for couple of weeks till yesterday when the problem came back. Any ideas on what to do in this situation ?

Hi, I have a Lenovo Yoga 211 laptop which I purchased 3 years ago. Two days ago I turned it on, & the Lenovo logo came up as usual, & the little circle, but i never got past that screen. I tried some function keys, & wound up with the screen saying Preparing Your Automatic Repair (or something similar). After a while, the screen went to Repairing Your PC. Then the screen said Repairing Your Disks. This May Take Over An Hour. Over an hour later, the screen said the automatic repair couldn?t repair the disks. I searched Google for answers, checked some videos, wasted $47.00 on some answer site, & now I?m here. Has anyone else had this problem?Thank you in advance for any help!

My Lenovo T460S was doing a strange thing where it updated the firmware for the wireless device every time I booted it up, so after reading around some other forum posts, I downloaded the latest drivers and installed them. After that, the first time I rebooted, the machine would not respond to the keyboard and touchpad, and the same again the next few times, so I went into the recovery system get it to reset Windows 10 to original state. The machine informed me that reset had failed on 3%, and now it is stuck what appears to be some kind of boot loop, where it shows the Lenovo logo, but then goes blackscreen for a while, before restarting and trying again. Any ideas why this has happened and how to fix it? Thanks in advance.

My G570 recently had a few problems. First everytime it boots it gives me he options to launch startup repair or start windows normally. The latter just crashes and takes me back to the initial options and the former just shows a blue screen with a cursor and stays like that for hours.After looking around the internet I tried downloading a win7 iso and it would successful boot but then after I click install it just hangs on Setup Is Starting for hours. I tried taking the Lenovo HDD out and then when it asked to browse for drivers, I would put the harddrive back in but it would then hang again attempting to read it. I tried booting the iso on another laptop and it worked fine, showing me the options of where I would like to install it etc.I have been able to read my files from my HDD and they are all backed up so it's not that its not readable I don't think.Anyone had any similar problems? Would formatting my HDD help at all? Is requesting a recovery disk from lenovo my only option?Thanks.

Answer:G570 Startup Repair Loop and Win7 Clean Install stuck on Setup is Starting

Hi ZakASenior,
 
Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums!
 
I?m sorry to hear that your G570 Laptop is booting to screen where ?Launch startup repair & Start windows normally? option is displayed and also the OS (Operating System) is not getting installed. Performing the clean install in the HDD should resolve the issue, but performing this will erase the pre-installed OS in the computer. Hence I would Strongly Suggest Calling Technical Support for Assistance. Click here to open a link where you can select the country and get the exact contact support number. I?m sure they will be a great help.
 
Do post us back for further queries.
 
Best Regards

Shiva Kumar

Hi  I have a Lenovo G570 which is giving me a problem lately. It use to work fine and all but now all of a sudden when i switch it on it shows the lenovo scrteen, goes black for a few sec then restarts, and it keeps on going on forever. and when I try to press f2 to access the bios or f12 to access the boot men, nothing happens. They dont work. And the thing is They use to work because I have accessed those menu before in the past. And what I have noticed is that as it starts when it shows the lenovo screen at the bottom left it doesnt write that I should press f2 for bios and f12 for boot menu. and before this problem it use to write that. Can you'l please assist. Thanks Regards 

Answer:Lenovo G570 on a continuous restart loop and f2 and f12 not working

hi Stayh0t,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
It looks like the system is not finding the boot device (which explains why it gets stucked on the blank screen after the lenovo logo).
 
Can you try to:
1. Turn the computer off and remove the AC adapter and battery
2. Remove all connected peripherals (i.e. flashdrive, printer, etc.)
3. Press and hold the power button for 20secs
4. Plug-in the AC adapter adn turn the computer ON
5. Try to access the BIOS using F2 key.
 
If you get into the BIOS, press F9 to load the default settings then press F10 to save and exit BIOS and observe the PC. If you still get issues, try to reseat the HDD and the RAM (see page 37-40 of the hardware maintenance manual). If same problem, there's most likely an internal problem and you need to contact lenovo for service.
 
 
Hope this helps

Hi guys, I have Lenovo G570 laptop that I bought in 2011. It has had lot of problems after just a year of ownership(hinge, dvd drive not detected(still not working), etc.), but I have this major problem I cannot figure out. Whenever I start laptop, it hangs on Lenovo boot screen logo for about 5-7 minutes. It eventually starts, but it always takes 5-7 minutes. Pressing any keys doesn't help. For example, if I press F2 or F12, it would say loading (or something like that) and eventually open after 2-3 minutes.  When laptop hangs on Lenovo screen, the laptop is nearly silent. It's as if fans aren't even running. However, on some(rare) days, laptop starts normally without any wait. I'm pretty sure it's not software related as I've used different OS's (Linux and Windows) and partitioned/format many times and I still had this problem. I checked all ports and I don't see any bent pins. Otherwise, the laptop runs flawless. Being a broke student, I'd rather fix it than replace it.  Perhaps you guys can provide solution or ideas that I can try. Hope it's not the mobo  Thank you. PS: I had Thinkpad T24 and it was completely problem-free which is why I came back to Lenovo/IBM. I don't expect durability of Thinkpad in G series laptop, but I did expect reliability. 

Answer:G570 stuck on Lenovo logo

UPDATE!!  Okay so I did some troubleshooting for few hours, testing part by part and I've found the sucker that caused my laptop to hang at Lenovo boot screen..It was the DVD drive that didn't work for long time. I took out the DVD drive and the laptop booted normally..everytime. Now my problem is I don't know if the DVD drive is bad or the connection on motherboard is bad. I don't want to order a new drive only to find out the connection on mobo was bad.  What do you guys think?

Hi, I have a G570 i5 with 640GB and 4GB ram, it has been working fine up until one month ago. Now for some reason it sometimes get stuck at the windows start up screen. There it sits and never gets any further. I can reboot multiple times with the same effect, then suddenly the Laptop works again, runs and boots fine for a few days until the next random stop. I have tried the folowing things: Operating system re-install. No difference, still happens.System restore. No differnece.Changing Bios systtings for USB and Disk systems Virus checkedchecked memory and Hard disk driveFixed master boot reccord. The only thing that seems to work is: when the stop happens, shut down laptop. Remove battery. Reboot using mains. This works until the next time, when I then have to put the battery back in. Any ideas as to what causes this or why it happens? It's driving me crazy as I'm trying to do a dissertation!! When the computer runs it runs well.

Hi
tried installing Windows 7 on my T43 but no matter what I did I could not get to recognise my WiFi so I followed the instructions to re-install The XPro because it worked with no problem. Half way through the installation, a couple of fileds were not recognised and I found a couple of scratches on the installation disk. Luckily I have another installation disk from another PC which is unmarked.
I have changed the BIOS to HDD at bottom of list but it still insists on trying to complete the failed installation - freezing with an error message saying files missing.
The T43 has nothing of value so would be quite happy to do anything to get XPPro loaded again.
Suggestions please
 

Answer:Lenovo T43 stuck in a loop

Hi

Did you get Win7 to install ok overall and its just Wifi is missing?

If so then in Device Manager what yellow ! marks do you have?

I would be looking at installing the latest chipset driver for your PC and rebooting then see if the WiFi driver HERE works

Answer:Lenovo G570 boot disk

hi keith2012,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Just to verify:
Did the machine came preloaded with Win7?
When you run Windows Update, are you getting any error messages (eg. 0x800f081f)?
When you said "the recovery partition is gone", do you mean the partition was deleted and it's no longer under disk management?
 - Link to picture
 
If you have a preloaded Win7 OS and you're planning to re-install it then you will need to contact lenovo on how to go about getting a recovery disc (shipping fees may apply) as the factory image (.iso) is not available online.
 
Alternatively, you can follow this guide on how to create a bootable Windows 7 USB installer. When finished, you can boot from that USB installer by pressing F12 on startup to install a fresh copy of Windows. From here, you can use the Windows 7 product at the bottom of the unit to activate Windows
 
Note:
This will only work if you have a preloaded copy of Windows 7 with a COA sticker). If successful, you can then download and install the drivers from the G570 drivers page to finish things up.
 
 
Regards

Hi, I have Lenovo G570 and Windows 7 Pro installed, it's out of warranty right now and I have found a problem yesterday. I turned off my laptop and go to work. When I came back I turned it on again and Windows freezed in middle of launching ( Microsoft's logo showed and nothing happens after ) .  I was trying to reinstall my Windows and I figured out that I can't boot it from CD-ROM ( in BIOS I have information that it's not detected ) . So I prepared USB installation version of Windows. I installed it correctly, and Windows launched properly. After install drivers ( I installed everyone at once ) the problem came back. Do you have any ideas what's going on with my laptops. I can reinstall Windows again of course and try to not install drivers, but maby someone had the same problem as I and know the solution. Thanks for answers . Best Regards,Emil

After the computer re-booted I got an error saying a "recent software or hardware change has corrupted the bcd ". I restored the laptop again to factory setting and after the updates got the same error.... I have checked the hard disk for bad sectors and the test said hard disk is healthy...I ran memory test as well and ram also Came out fine...I then tried using a different hard drive and got the same error....interestingly when I run the hard drive in an external enclosure...windows and everything runs fine...the moment I try to put it in the laptop and boot the boot sector gets corrupted and the partition becomes " raw"...I have no clue as to what the problem is...can someone please help.

My lenonvo (thinkpad) t410 is stuck in startup. I was checking email and I noticed that my screen was freezing up a bit when an error message box came on screen (unfortunately I did not take note of what it said) and my computer began to shut down by itself. I hit the power button to make sure it wouldnt restart and gave it 20 minutes before i went to turn it back on. Now when i try to turn it on, it shows the lenovo splash screen but then goes black and shows the splash screen again, never proceeding to windows. I have spent most of the say looking up possible solutions, but while many people have had similar problems, most other posts involve system recovery options, which do not appear on my screen. It is allowing me to boot into BIOS but I have not been able to find a solution there. Do I need to reinstall Windows? Please help.

As per the query we understood that you are facing issues with system stuck in repair loop.
 
If the system is preloaded with the windows, you can reload the windows using novoi button and check.
 
Before reloading please backup all the data which is in C drive and also in D drive in the hard drive as you might loose the data .

I've got a problem with a Lenovo Ideapad 110 that I was formatting for a new user - I left it over the weekend to refresh and reinstall Windows 10 and now turning it on puts it in a continuous loop that stops me getting into Windows or even the BIOS. At the moment whenever I turn the laptop on the Lenovo splash screen comes on, followed by the circle of white dots. After a couple of seconds the logo disappears for a second then reappears. The message "Welcome" appears for a split second and then turns to "Restarting." After a couple more seconds the laptop restarts and the whole thing happens again until I turn off the power. I've tried every shortcut to get to the BIOS, system repair, etc. that I can think of and nothing stops this loop from happening. I've tried the Novo button on the side, that does nothing either. Any suggestions on how to get around this so I can force a complete system restore would be most appreciated. Cheers

Hi, My Lenovo G570 battery is stuck at 90%. It says plugged in, not charging. It just happened over night. Next day battery refuse to work. In windows it says battery 90% and is not charging but battery has no charge at all. When I disconnet the A/C power laptop just shutdown immediately. As soon as I unplug the power laptop just shutdown as there is no charge in the battery. I did reinstalled the Power managment and also updated it. I all unpluged reboot in OS, restart, put battery back and boot into the OS back. Nothing seems to work. Is there any suggestions?  UPDATE: I just installed Lenovo Enery Managment in windows 8 before I was trying in windows 7. In the battery tab there are two options Maximun battery LifeOptimized battery HealthIt is selected to "Optimized battery Health" and won't change regardless of power plan. I click on  "Maximun battery Life" and when I open the app again it reset it to "Optimized battery Health". UPDATE # 2: Lenovo Solution Center say that battery life is GOOD. "Your battery is in good condition".













Solved!

Answer:Lenovo G570 battery not charging. Battery stuck at 90% but has no charge at all.

Hi Katag570,   Considering the age of the G570, I belive you might have to replace the battery

Hello guys, I did something stupid today and I'm unable to fix it myself. I wanted to create a Windows 10 and Fedora dual-boot for my Thinkpad E560. I freed up some space on the 1TB HDD that comes with the Notebook and then I installed Fedora via live-usb on this free partition. Everything went fine, then I restarted and the system automatically loaded the usb-stick again. Weird, so I looked into boot menu. The Windows Boot Manager was still there, so I started it, but all it did was bringing me back to the Boot Menu. Unable to start Linux or Windows I'm in some boot loop hell now. To make things worse, I tried to reset my settings in the BIOS (I changed some things with the UEFI to get VMs to work, and I thought that this was the problem). But after the settings were reset I now can't even see the Windows Boot Manager in the Boot Menu! All I can boot now is ATAPI CD0, ATA HDD0 and PCI LAN which all bring me back to the boot menu. I would be eternal grateful if you could help me out - Is there any help left for my existing windows or will I have to completely wipe everything?

So, I was an idiot for allowing an unknown .exe to access the internet. All of a sudden, command prompts invade my screen. They seemed to be launched from my local files. Each one, the cursor leaped at random places, not sure if there was a particular pattern for each .exe that launched. Around 10 launched and I was able to close all of them.

I performed a System Restore, and this is where I'm stuck in the boot loop. I tried launched Safe Mode and normal. No luck, the trojan(s) re-boot my computer.

Obviously, I can't provide a HijackThis or ANYTHING because I can't excess any programs at all. Although, can anyone provide any help?

Hi,

Sorry for the long post but I'll try to give as much info as I can...

I've just installed Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit and Linux Mint 12 on a Compaq Presario CQ60.

I created a 25Gb partition for Windows, a separate partition for data (around 180Gb) and then installed Linux Mint 12 on another 25Gb partition.

Edit: just to clarify I installed Windows first.

Windows was working fine - I installed all the necessary drivers, security software and Windows updates etc before installing Mint 12.

After installing Mint 12 I booted back into Windows to check everything was fine and to format the data partition to NTFS from within Windows. After this I restarted the machine and booted into Mint to check all was fine on that side of things - it was.

I then left the PC for a while but when I came back to it I tried to boot into Windows and it just keeps restarting the PC when it gets to the Windows logo. It happens over and over again.

I tried booting from the Windows disk to do a start up repair but that doesn't work either.

The one thing I did notice though was that the start up repair tool reports that Windows is now residing on drive E instead of C!! This is weird as it had definitely assigned drive letter C to the main Windows partition last time it booted. Perhaps this is the root of the problem?

What I don't get though is that after installing Mint I booted back into Windows and everything was great. So now I don't know if Windows, Linux or perhaps GRUB is to blame fo... Read more

hi my cpu cooler fan died and i replaced it and did a factory recovery that said it completed successfully. but when i restarted my comp it sets me back at the safe mode page i have triied all boot options and the comp just goes into a restart and sets me back to the safemode screen or it will just freeze. my question is how do i determine if its my hard drive or processor or possibly even motherboard i havent ruled out the cdrom and power supply but i figure if the recovery was sucessfull then mostlikey the cdrom is working correctly. ive read a few similar storys about the same things happening to other types of computers but the fixes didnt seem to work on my system cause it wasnt the same kinda comp this comp is a celeron systemax with a 2.4g processor. i also turned on S M A R T on the bios but doesnt seem to be helping any. i also was able to run a diagnostic test off my recovery cd and recieved error number 16 during the hard drive part of the test. does this mean i need a new hard drive? im not a computer tech but im verry mechanical id like to fix this issue on my own i just dont wanna buy 5 different parts to do it. so before i go buy a new hard drive i would like a second opinion on if its most likely the hard drive or possibly something else

My brother's pc has XP Home on it, and this is the second time since I built the computer a month ago that windows has gotten stuck in a boot loop. It won't boot into safe mode either. The last time I fixed it running chkdsk found some errors and I repaired the mbr and the boot sector. Then it just booted right up. I bought burnintest and ran the snot out of that and it didn't find any problems. I also ran complete seagate diagnostics tests, all the tests pass. Plus I fully ran memtest+86 twice. Never finding any errors.

So my question is not how to fix the boot loop, but what in the heck is causing this to happen? How do I figure this out? I don't want to but I was going to just format the drive and start fresh again to try that.

Hi BootLoops  , 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums. 
 
If there is no opportunity to go to the advance repair options. some would intentionally crash it to force the recovery screen to appear just like turning it off and on suddenly with 2-3 attempts. 
 
Else you can proceed with this option:

Take time to review as it offers several options to repair boot and use which best work for you. 
If the data within are essential before doing anything , you can try booting the machine on a rescue live media to backup or place the drive on an external harddrive enclosure to slave it on another machine.

It looks like you have a disk in the floppy drive. It might be a disc in the CAROM drive. Either case, take out the disks before you boot the computer. It is trying to start from a floppy or maybe the CD disc.

Bad driver. You probably just moved the HD over with an old driver on it that has changed. Is there anything different between this mobo and the old one?

Hello,

I got a pc for christmas (https://www.bol.com/nl/p/play4ever-o...0000065187865/)

Today I tried starting it up and immediately got confronted with the infamous blue screen. Basically telling me that my boot device is inaccessible.
I've tried various troubleshooting solutions recommended through various tutorials but nothing works.

- i can't access safe mode
- none of the options for system repair work
- i don't have another pc that has windows 10 so i can't try the media stick booting solution.
- only hardware connected to it are mouse, keyboard and monitor.
- only remaining solution is 'restart' so i'm basically stuck.

Any tips on how to overcome this?

Thanks,

I've received a hard drive from a client and I am trying to get it to work on a pc of mine but it gets to the Windows XP start up graphic and then goes straight back to the initial motherboard boot up screen. Initally I thought it was something to do with the Ram, so I put more Ram in it... New ram in it but it still didn't work...

I then tried the same hard drive in a lower spec pc with 512mb of Ram and it worked fine?!?

Anyone know what's up with it? I presume it's something to do with the bios settings?

Answer:Stuck in a loop at boot up...

Can you start in Safe Mode?


Edit: read this -> wrong link -brb

IF you can get to Safe Mode:

Change the settings to disable automatic rebooting:

1.Right-click My Computer, and then click Properties.

2.Click the Advanced tab.

3.Under Startup and Recovery, click Settings to open the Startup and Recovery dialog box.

4.Clear the Automatically restart check box, and click OK the necessary number of times to back out.

5.Restart your computer for the settings to take effect.

Then when it crashes again write down the error code (from the Blue screen) to post here then hopefully someone can tell you what it means.

Hi goodk9,

You say it is stuck in a boot loop but at the same time say you were able to run AVG and MBAM.

Also you got some respite when you carried out System Restore.

So are you saying that it sporadically goes into a boot loop or maybe it carries out a reboot after a period?

If you can, please post the MBAM log and tell me the answer to the above.

My PC running Windows XP SP3 seems to be stuck in a boot loop---please help!!!
I’m working on a different machine as I type this. I am at a loss as to why this happened. I shut it down the other night and everything appeared to work normally. Then the next morning, it kept rebooting over and over. It would get all the way to the desktop and then reboot. I unplugged the machine for a while and came back to it. This time I got a screen asking something to the effect of did I want to start the computer in Safe Mode or Use The Last Known Good Configuration. I tried the Use The Last Known Good Configuration option. This seemed to work, making me both relieved and happy. However, it turned out to be a temporary fix!! When I turned my PC on this morning, it was stuck in the same boot loop!!!!
What can I do to fix this problem? Please let me know what information I need to provide about the machine to help aid in finding a solution. I thought about using the Last Known Good Configuration option again so I could go save my files to a flash drive before messing with the machine but will this cause further problems? I’ve tried to Google search various solutions but I am a novice at this and I am having trouble figuring out what exactly to do.

Question: Stuck in boot loop

I really hope I'm able to communicate everything I've tried here, because it's been a lot so far :P
The problem first happened when I tried to install new RealTek audio drivers because my sound failed. Part of that process is to reboot after uninstalling the old drivers. When I tried rebooting, I get the Windows logo, then an error screen with "BAD_SYSTEM_CONFIG_INFO."

Windows reboots and attempt to Diagnose the PC. I'm lead to the Automatic Repair screen where my options are either Restart or Advanced options. Restart has the same reboot process, so I go to Advanced options.
My first option, to continue to Windows 10, does the same ol' fun reboot.

Toubleshoot takes me to Reset this PC, which starts to work but then says that there was a problem and no changes were made.
So in Advanced options, System Restore and System Image Recovery both have no options for me. My last chance is to boot into Safe Mode which fails with error code 0xc000021a.

I don't have an install DVD because I updated directly from Windows 7. What are my options here? I can't even factory reset.
Thanks for any help/feedback!

Well none of the above would work,they all start to boot then bring me back to the options screen.

This is a old computer but works very good ( use too ) Oringally I had Windows Me on it but upgraded to XP Pro. So when I put in my XP Pro CD I can not boot up to windows but I can get to the recovery screen then it ask me to insert the recovery disc ( remember this is a XP upgrade ) I put in the Windows ME recovery disc ( the only one I have ) and it does not recognize it. I tried the Ultimate Boot CD but I can not get it to run,changed bios for cd to run first on boot but that did not help. So here I am stuck with a machine that keeps rebooting to the options screen.

My pc (Cyberpower i7 Andromeda Infinity, Vista64) seems to be stuck in some sort of loop at start up. Since rebooting my pc this afternoon the following happens:

Starts with the normal small message...

'NVIDIA Geforce....etc' (Can never catch what it says. Its too quick and is partially obscured by a monitor pop up (Which is normal. Also mentions VGA bios)

Then a new black screen with...

'Award Bootblock V1.0
Copyright (c) 2000, Award Software. inc

Scanning Bios image in hard drive...' Whilst also attempting to access the DVD drive (green light is on).

Then it restarts and goes through the process again.

This goes on until i hold down the power button and turn it off (which makes me cringe!).

Checked inside the casing and everything's still connected as far as i can tell.

Been searching around and apparently this seems to be something to do with the BIOS and is a common problem with GIGABYTE motherboards, which i have.

Sorry if the info I'm giving is a bit vague, but this is totally new to me. Posted on the Cyberpower forums but so far no replies. Any ideas?

My recent Windows 8 update stuck my computer into an infinite automatic repair loop which results in a blue screen amd the process repeats itself. I tried the OneKey restore feature and the system recovery feature just hangs then it goes back to the same loop issue with rebooting. I called Lenovo for recovery discs since I don't have any any but my concern is does it matter if I mentioned whether I had a 32 or 64 bit OS? I told her to make sure it was for a Windows 8 system amd she just said it works for the G780 models. I'm just hoping these discs work.for a 64 bit system

Answer:Lenovo G780 stuck in Automatic Repair Loop after Windows 8 update

It should work. Support cannot send you recovery disks if you didn't provide them your serial number. They can check the correct pre-installed OS from your serial number so I'm sure they're sending out the correct disks.

Answer:lenovo G505s stuck in a 'diagnosing your pc' then 'preparing automatic repair' loop

Hi heidihamed  , 
 
 
Welcome to the Community Forums . 
 
On a Windows boot loop , it would be an advantage if it can proceed on windows advance options for repair options. 
Avoid any option for factory recovery since those would delete your files.
 
Initially turn off your pc and remove the battery and charger . 
Press and hold down the power button for 15 seconds and release to drain remaining current. 
Put back the battery and charger and use the Novo key (item5 page 4) to turn it on . 
Choose  BIOS setup and press F9 for loading defaults , F10 to save and exit  
How was it?
 
If the advance options showed up then we can proceed with troubleshoot and system restore that would allow you to just go back to a previous date before the problem with you keeping your files. 
 
You may also create a repair image to help fix it from a different pc with same WIndows version. 
 
 
Final option should be One key recovery  (page27) but this would delete your files so usually best that you try backing your files via harddrive enclosure and attach the harddrive on a different pc . 
Else booting to a rescue media can help with back ups too. 
 
 
Update us how things would go. 
 
 
Regards

We have an E431 with the original Win 7 install that's suddenly unable to boot.  It gets through POST, but then says "Windows failed to start" and gives the options to run repair or to start Windows normally.  If we select start normally, it looks like it tries to boot for a minute, then loops back to that same screen.  If we select to run the repair, it sits on "Windows is loading files" for a while, then looks for just a second like it might load Windows, then just goes to a screen that says "Lenovo Thinkvantage Technologies" on it, with a picture of a lifesaver.  (Feeling a touch ironic at this point.)  It then just sits on that screen and does nothing until a hard shutdown.  Attempting to boot in safe mode just results in the same thing as the regular boot - it loops back to the "failed to start" screen. The person using this laptop is currently away from the office, so I don't have any easy way of getting a recovery disk to them (they're looking into whether they can find/make one there).  Is there anything else we can try?

I'm pretty sure I have infections, malware and cant fully boot to run programs to clean it up. I have heard that there is a way to boot up without engaging Windows. Is this possible / necessary? Is there another way to boot so that I can get the clean up programs turned on?

I am able to get the safe mode options window. When I choose last known configuration that worked, the Windows screen appears and it goes no further than that. The little "wait I am processing" bar is running across the screen so it looks like something is happening.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Here is what happened. I wanted Num-Lock to stay on during system boot so that I didn't always have to press it on my external keyboard. So I went into the BIOS and changed that setting, then exited. It started fine and worked, but the little num lock logo was stuck on the screen which was annoying. So, I went back into the BIOS and changed it back, then exited. Now, it turns on, shows the ThinkPad splash screen, and then beeps and shows a message "Configuration changed - restart the system." and beneath that, it says something about the Date and Time. I've researched this for 5 hours already so yes, I pulled the battery, disconnected power, popped the keyboard, pulled out the backup battery and waited an hour, and reconnected it. It gave me another error about the BIOS Checksum beneath those two errors above, and went into that loop again. The BIOS checksum error goes away but the other two remain. I have no idea why this would have happened - I didn't mess with anything strange. I tried all the Fn+esc, Fn+B, Fn+R, etc etc and also tried a BIOS.wph manual flash from a usb drive, but nothing seems to change this loop. I did manage to get some message about PBX boot by pressing ctrl+S, but it doesn't really help. I pulled the ram and hdd and did just about every combination of keys and battery in/out and power button. No change. I called Lenovo and they said good luck since it's 2 years out of warranty. SO... what can I do? I think this is go... Read more

I am not sure of all the computer specs. I will get them tomorrow. Its a XP machine that is about a year old. Wednesday Morning I installed Limewire. Everything went fine all day. However, today I started getting alot of pop ups and limewire started turning itself on even after i disconnected and exited the program. I ran windows defender and lavasoft adware. They both found a ton of stuff so I deleted it all. I deleted my cookies and temp internet files including offline files. Windows defender stated I had the Navidad worm so I found the removal tool and ran it. It stated the worm was removed. But the problem still wasnt fixed so I decided to uninstall Limewire and then clean my computer. After the unistall ran the computer shut down to reboot. But it never came back up. It is stuck in the first 2 pages of the boot sequence. I can enter the cmos utility or the user window. I can not find a opition to boot in safe mood anywhere. I tried using the restore disk to go back to a restore piont, but it stated there was no image to roll back to. I do not want to have to restore it to factory due to having a few files that I can not lose on the hard drive. Any suggestions would be appreciated........
 

Answer:Computer stuck in boot loop

Sounds like you are going to have to reinstall. But there could be a few options to try first. These options are typically better be discussed in the Software Forum but below is what I thinking


to simple recover files you need, you can try installing the hard disk as a slave in another PC and just copy the files you need off of it. Then reinstall your OS.
If you have a boot CD for your OS, you could boot this CD and perform a Repair Install. See: http://www.michaelstevenstech.com/XPrepairinstall.htm

Hi all,

This wonderful forum helped me when I picked up a virus earlier in the year so I am hoping you can help me again.

My PC today has begun to BSOD out on startup. Power on, I see the pc detecting MB, gfx etc. it got to the XP loading screen and then BSOD'd out and immediately started to boot again.

I then got a screen with an 'American Megatrends' logo and a message saying the 'overclocking has failed'. I get two options:

F1 - Enter setup and reconfigure
F2 - Set defaults and continue

First off I hit F2

It then asked me if I wanted to continue in safe mode or boot normally. I asked it to boot normally because there was no reason for it to do this.

Boot up then continued to XP screen where it BSOD'd again and tried to start up once more.

Bro in law thought it might be the fan on the chipset - I powered the pc on with the side off (didnt touch anything!) and all fans are working.
Point to note: I have never overclocked this PC, as far as I'm aware when I bought it from PCspecialist.co.uk it was not overclocked. I have never modified it beyond its original spec either. The only time I have opened the case is to clean it out (gently and making sure I'm grounded first)

below is the spec. I hope you can help me with this - I won't be surprised if its just a age thing since the pc is quite old now.

Hi, if anyone can help me, I'd be truly grateful. I have an HP nx6325 Windows XP Pro stuck in the start-up mode. I did a hard shut down a couple days ago, and the next morning my pc couldn't get past the Windows logo and has been stuck in this perpetual re-boot mode.

My pc opens with Windows logo, flashes the BSOD for a second, followed by the HP logo, the 'Press f11 for emergency recovery', then goes to the b/w BIOS "We apologize for the inconvenience but windows did not start successfully..." screen with the 'safe mode' through 'normal' startup options, and the 30 second countdown. Regardless of what option I choose, it reverts to the same loop. I've tried all options, tried the Advanced Options in f8 with no luck. I don't want to use the f11 emergency recovery and lose all my data.

I've read the threads here re: rebooting loops and the options, however, it seems that the only answer is using an XP Recovery disc, which I do not have. Downloading and burning a CD isn't a option, since my CD drive is on the broken pc - I only have a netbook.

Do I have any other options, or do I have to do an Emergency Recovery and lose all my data? I'm completely frazzled and don't know what to do.

Thanks in advance for anyone's help. Please use layman's terms, as I'm very very UNtech-savvy.

Answer:XP Pro Stuck In Re-boot Loop. Please Advise

and welcome to the Forum

What exactly did you do when you did the "hard shutdown"?

You can salvage your data several ways.

You can take the drive out and temporarily attach it to a working pc to salvage the data.

Hard Drive Recovery Tutorial - How To Slave A Hard Drive

You may have to take ownership of the files first: How to take ownership of a file or a folder in Windows XP

. . or, You can use an adaptor like this: or an external enclosure like this.

or, you could use Ubuntu - this would eliminate the need to physically remove the Hard Drive.

You can get it from here: Desktop | Ubuntu

Step #2 on that page shows you how to create the USB/CD.

Once you boot into Ubuntu, (choose the option where it runs off the USB/CD) you can use it to copy your files from the Windows Partition to an external hard drive (Note: Do not copy anything to the Ubuntu Filesystem as it will not be saved on shut-down)

AVG detected a virus this morning and I thought all was well after scanning with SuperAntispyware and removing,healing or sending to the vault. Thought all was well after that. then I did a google search on the virus detected by AVG and it was suggested to safe boot and run an application from there. I could not F8 so I did another google for safe booting in XP and was told to do a boot.ini after msconfig in the run application. Now my PC is stuck in a continuous loop and will not boot in any of the modes offered and a blue screen quickly flashes so fast I cannot make out what it sdays and the whole cycle will repeat itself if allowed while it is powered up.

Any suggestions other than reformatting.

Salutations everyone,Recently I purchased a u410 and it has been running great for a few weeks but this morning instead of waking up from hibernation like normal it seems to be stuck in a loop of displaying the lenovo logo then a blank screen with a few seconds on each. This has been running continously for hours while I try to run down battery in an attempt to reset. I have no bios access during the loop and it will not boot to any usb media. I am now wondering what I should do since it already has data migrated from my old machine and don't exactly want to start over. Is there anything that can be done other than returning it or sending it to lenovo support?

Answer:U410 stuck in boot loop

hi CurlyBrackets,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
If the reboot loop goes to the Lenovo logo where the white dots goes in circles, try to Interrupt the loading of Windows 8 to enter push-button reset mode (this is like a recovery environment to restore the pc fromr previous working state). To do this, hold the power button while on the Lenovo logo with the white dots going in circles. loading (you need to do this 2-3 times).
 
If successful, it'll run Automatic Repair and if it fails, you'll see this screen:
 
- Link to picture
 
Click on Advanced Options and from there you can:
 1. Follow this guide to enable booting into Safe Mode, If everything's ok, try to restart the computer in normal mode and observe
 2. Do a System Restore to undo the changes
 3  Refresh your Windows 8 PC  or reset windows 8 (note that this will wipe the computer clean)
 
If the problem remains and the steps above doesn't work, the HDD/SSD maybe showing signs of malfunction and you may need to send the unit for service.
 
 
Hope this helps

Hi all,
Was wondering if you could help.

So this morning my computer has a blue screen, so i restarted it to find that its now stuck in a boot loop.

Nothing has been installed recently, Maybe Windows Update launched and caused this problem?

I am able to get into safe mode though.

Ive scanned with Malwarebytes, found a few things and cleaned but still wont boot.

I was going to use the Windows disc however the computer has SP3 and the disc is SP2.

Is there a way I can load registry settings from 2 days ago?
 

Answer:Windows XP Stuck in boot loop

Use the windows XP disc. Instead of doing an install, go to Recovery Console. Login by selecting your windows install. Username: Administrator . leave the password blank.

type what you see in bold. press the keys that you see in italics.

fixboot enter.
(for any prompts, y enter)

fixmbr enter.
(for any prompts, y enter)

power down your computer and try again.

I have tried to plug it in, unplug. I even tried to press the volume up which highlights F12 boot menu, it displays the same error and reboots. I tried going into bios with the same issue. I tried to hold the volume up and volume down to go into recovery mode and it displays a loading bar. After a few seconds it flashes the error and reboots. Not sure how it reset just fine a few months ago until this morning when my warranty expired recently. I tried contacting support and they said it would be $150 to get it sent to them so they can fix it. For $130 I can buy a used one online. Had I known I'd get this issue I wouldn't have reset it.

Answer:Computer stuck in Boot.ini loop

Simple fix. If you still have your XP cd (that came with your computer) or any XP CD, just boot to it. Then wait for everything to load, and let it go to the partitioner. Then, scroll to the partition the XP install is on, and type R (or whatever button it says to press to repair). Now a Command Line will load, and ask you to type some stuff. once you get to a point where you can enter commands, type "fixboot" with quotes. This will fix the boot.ini file, thus allowing you to boot back into XP. I don't know why you can't boot into safe mode with the F8 key, are you hitting it at the right time? Anyhow, post back with the result of this fix.

Answer:Can't boot, stuck in a loop DRIVER_VERIFIER_DETECTED_VIOLATION

Do you still have your old SSD? You may need to attempt a clean install to troubleshoot this issue.

I've seen this error before on a system that had a failing RAM stick and a Hard drive failing.

The system would attempt the boot, go through the spinning dots, and before it got to the lock screen, boom, BSOD like this one, also I would get the bsod "watchdog Violation".

I got a new hard drive for the system, did a clean install. Problem went away.

Usually a driver verifier error would indicate a hardware failure, or a bad driver.

You could also boot with your Windows Installation Media and see if you have any restore points available, and restore to an earlier point in time to get your system at least functional.

But, if you have a spare drive, do a clean install
