Preferred Solution: Windows 7 Failed To Start Startup Repair Failed Offline Bad Driver

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.)

Hi, my pc was having some bsods lately but rebooted ok. Last night it failed to boot and havent booted normally since then. It only boots in safe mode. I have tried every option in the F8 menu, ran chkdsk and nothing worked. the exact error from startup repair says :

for what is worth i though it to be a different problem so i did a clean install of win 7 and still the same. i have read some older threads and all suggested farbar. this is the log:

Answer:Windows 7 failed to start Startuprepair Offline Bad Driver

log properly posted here.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/507105/windows-7-failed-to-start-startuprepair-offline-bad-driver/Now that your log is properly posted, you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a Malware Removal Team member, nor should you continue to ask for help elsewhere. Doing so can result in system changes which may not show it the log you already posted. Further, any modifications you make on your own may cause confusion for the helper assisting you and could complicate the malware removal process which would extend the time it takes to clean your computer.From this point on the Malware Removal Team should be the only members that you take advice from, until they have verified your log as clean.Please be patient. It may take a while to get a response because the Malware Removal Team members are very busy working logs posted before yours. They are volunteers who will help you out as soon as possible. Once you have made your post and are waiting, please DO NOT make another reply until it has been responded to by a member of the Malware Removal Team. Generally the staff checks the forum for postings that have 0 replies as this makes it easier for them to identify those who have not been helped. If you post another response there will be 1 reply.

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

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

I installed the latest round of Windows updates for my Win7 x64 install and it never completed (ran for about 24 hours) so I powered off the machine. Upon restarting, it said:


Code:
"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause" and has instructions for using system repair, then at the bottom:

File: \Boot\BCD
Status: Oxc000000f
Info: An error occurred while attempting to read the boot configuration data
So I booted off a Windows recovery disk and figured Startup Repair would fix it. Alas, after it says "Windows found problems with your computer's startup options" and asks me if I want to repair, I click "repair and restart" and it says "Failed to save startup options".


Code:
The "repair details" are:
Name: {bootmgr}
Identifier: {...}

The following options will be added:
Name: Windows Recovery Environment (recovered)
Path: Recovery\...\Winre.wim
Windows Device: Partition=D:
I've tried running Startup Repair from the manual options screen and it says it cannot repair automatically. I have two partitions, the 100MB windows System partition, which Recovery Console mounts as C:\ and my main windows partition, which it mounts as D: and I can see all of my files on it.

Running "bootrec /repairbcd" gives me "Total identified Windows Installations: 0"

Answer:Windows 7 update failed and laptop won't boot. Startup repair failed

Have you run bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot?
Then, if it doesn't boot, run bootrec /RebuildBcd (from this KB article: How to use the Bootrec.exe tool in the Windows Recovery Environment to troubleshoot and repair startup issues in Windows )

c0000005 is STATUS_NO_SUCH_FILE - which means it can't find File: \Boot\BCD

At some point my desktop Dell running Windows 7 rebooted and startup failed.
I have attempted to run startup repair and this process fais with the following information:

I have also run chkdsk from a command prompt and no errors/problems were found.
I have attempted to restore the system to the only last known recovery point but that process fails as well.
I do not want to use the built in system restore option as there are a lot of files on this fairly new machine that I have not backed up, particularly video files I was recently converting from VHS tapes that are very large and took a lot of time to create.
I have used notepad through the cmd prompt to move a lot of files to an external hard drive, but that process is very time consuming.
Please, any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Windows 7 Failed to start, Startup Repair Failure

The fact that Startup Repair is reporting "NoRootCause" is not good. It could be anything from hardware failure to a virus that has damaged the operating system. Have you tried running sfc /scannow from a command prompt?

I have an HP Pavilion dv5-2135dx laptop... I don't know what went wrong but I randomly have a &quot;Windows Error Recovery&quot; screen when i turn it on: &quot;Windows Failed to Start. A recent hardware/software change might be the cause&quot; and i can either choose &quot;Launch Startup Repair&quot; or &quot;Start Windows Normally&quot; BUT when i attempt to start windows normally, it goes back to the &quot;Windows Error Recovery&quot; Screen. If i click &quot;Launch Startup Repair&quot; it doesn't do anything but stay on another screen and i've let it be on that screen for a whole day and nothing happens. I've tried safe mode and again it goes back to the &quot;Windows Error Recovery&quot; screen. I've tried all the debugging options and it goes back to the error screen. When I shut it down and tapped F10 to enter the bios menu, i went under the diagnostic tab and ran both the Hard Drive Test and Memory Test. Here are the results:<br>Primary Hard Drive Test- Hard Disk Full (305)<br>Memory Test- Passed<br>But i have no idea what that means because my laptop is brand new and it has 500gb... so the harddrive shouldnt be full. I'm in need of help because I don't know what to do after looking through abunch of forums... Please help me.

Answer:Windows Failed To Start & Startup Repair Doesn't Work!!!!

Hi: If you can live with losing your files, etc, you can try a system recovery back to factory specs. Boot up the PC and tap the F11 key at the beginning of the HP welcome screen to launch the recovery manager. Follow the prompts to reset the PC to factory specs. That is probably your only choice at this juncture. Paul

I am currently using windows 7 ultimate x64. I was in the middle of a process restoring my computer to a few days back and suddenly it froze. i did a power shut down and when i turned it back on, i wasn't able to get back into windows. i was brought to startup repair and it gave me errors. 'Boot manager failed to find OS loader." there was options for restoring, but all my restore points were gone. recovery wasn't able to find image backup. "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically" so i did some research before i came here. i was told to go into safe mode to restore, but whenever i enter safe mode, startup repair would take over and shows the same errors,also i read a tutorial using a repair disc ( made a copy of it on someone elses ultimate x64 computer) and i get the 0x00000e9 error if i boot from disc. what can i do? as of now i dont have the installation disc with me. i wont be able to get hold of it until tomorrow. theres a lot of important files in that hard drive and i really cant lose any. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

Answer:Failed to Find OS Load. Startup Repair FAILED

If you can't use a system repair disk, then you could simply reinstall Windows on the same hard drive. You don't need to format the hard drive during installation, just select your main hard drive and install, that way you can preserve your files. The files will be in "Windows.Old" after installation in your "Local Disk".

Also, make sure your repair CD is 64-bit, like your system. Try to access your BIOS, by pressing the "Delete" key; it's different for various mktherboards, and select your CD-ROM to be first to boot. Might help, I'm not sure. If it helps, we'll start from there.

You'll want to select "Command Prompt" from the repair disk, we'll need it.

Hi, first post.

I can't follow the guidelines and put any information from the BSOD, because I can't boot my computer. However, I've taken a picture of the blue screen, if that's of any help.

Picture: http://i.imgur.com/faUQAZs.jpg

This is the process up till the BSOD:
1. Turn on computer
2. "Windows failed to start"
3. I can then a) "Start windows normally" or b) "Launch startup repair (recommended)"
4. a) just reboots the PC into the same state
5. b) results in a BSOD seconds after. It's stays until I turn off computer,
6. The BSOD again: http://i.imgur.com/faUQAZs.jpg

Things I've tried:
1. Booting into safe mode (and any of the other fancy options after pressing F8). This is NOT possible. I press an option, and I see a BSOD for 0,1 second, and the PC reboots.
2. Booting from recovery disk. I enter BIOS and change booting order = it detects the disc, starts to "load windows files" = but goes into BSOD seconds after.

What is definitely causing this:
My Samsung 840 SSD. I've tried replacing it with my old WD 640gb hard disk, and the computer boots just fine.
HOWEVER, it has worked fine since I installed it in September 2013. I WANT TO STRESS: It has worked fine, with out ANY issues since September 2013 up until now.

Nothing strange has happened lately; no new software, no new hardware.. nothing. It was a little overheating a few days ago, because it didn't turn off correctly and I put it in my PC shoulder bag... Read more

Answer:Turn on PC - "Windows failed to start" - Launch startup repair - BSOD!

The Bugcheck code of 50 suggests a memory problem, but I have seen something similar on the same Samsung 840 EVO SSD that I solved by power-cycling the SSD. To do that, follow these steps:

1. Power off laptop, unplug power lead, and remove battery.
2. Press and hold down the on/off button for 30 seconds, then release
3. Open the laptop and disconnect the SSD
4. Press and hold the on/off button for another 30 seconds, then release
5. Reconnect SSD, close-up the laptop, reinsert battery, reconnect power lead.
6. Boot as normal

Report back if it helps or not.

I'm not good at computers so I'll describe what I did and experienced as far as possible:
There have been some problems with my computer that prevented my computer from shutting down or restarting. I was using Windows 7 English version at that time.
To try to tackle the problem, I installed Windows 7 Enterprise Chinese version (64 bit) that I got from my company. I tried a few times but it stated that windows can't be installed in MBR HDD so I formatted the HDD and converted it into GPT. I finally installed the windows successfully, had it verified and installed the Windows Updates. I then restarted Windows, hoping that the updates will take effect.
However, Windows couldn't start up since then because of "Bad Driver". I tried startup repair but the problem couldn't be fixed. The Problem Signature Screen, from signature 01 to 07 were "6.1.7600.16385, 6.1.7600.16385, unknown, 21199522, AutoFailover, 6, BadDriver" respectively.
What should I do to fix the problem? Are there any fixlogs for my situation?
Thank you in advance for your help and professional advice!

Answer:Windows 7 Startup Repair Offline Bad Driver

Some more info on the situation:
Windows restarted and went to the "windows boot manager" page with two options-"activate repair" & "start up windows" if i do not insert the installation disc.
Also, for problem signature 06, it is sometimes 6, 7, 8 or 10. Dunno why...

I'm a computer tech guy and one of my users brought me a desktop that didn't boot. So, I started the PC, it started to go into Windows, the logo stops, the BSOD flashes on the screen for a tenth of a second, then it restarts again.
So then, I let it do the startup repair and it took about 20 minutes, then shows me the Problem Signature screen (the pertintent ones are 05, 06 and 07 that say AutoFailover, 8 and BadDriver).
After that, I Googled "Repair Offline Bad Driver" and found this site (thank goodness!) I remembered the name of it because I've used ComboFix before on another computer (which fixed it), and I read about this program I never heard of before called Farbar Recovery Scan Tool.
Next, I take out my trusty thumbdrive (which is bootable), made a Win7 recovery drive and booted the PC with it and ran that program. It made this log file (which I know you need) that I can somewhat understand.
Now, I need your help to make a proper fixlog that I can use to get the system booting again (once that happens, I can take it from there so as not to disturb you any further). I'll keep you updated on what has transpired, though. Thank you for any assistance you give me. Here is the attached log:

The laptop was given to me and the previous owner doesn't have the install cd or activation key which is needed for microsoft support.

I put it near my window and booted it up again and it booted into Startup Repair and ran its auto-fix (Which failed) and I went into System Recovery Options and I remembered that before it overheated the first time a Windows Update was qued. I figured it must have overheated the second time during the Windows Update. I tried 2 restore points and kept getting this error "An unspecified error occured during System Restore. (0x800700b7)".

However upon closer examination, the System Restore Options is telling me this "Operating System: Windows 7 on (D Acer". Note the D: - because I know for a fact my OS is indeed on D: (I checked using Command Prompt). The problem is System Restore is trying to restore the C: when it should be doing D:

I believe this to be the problem. I was wondering whether it is or isn't the problem, and how do I get System Restore to restore the D: and not the C:

(I have no backup disks of any kind so my personal files hang in the balance)

Thank you,

Lord Castabarus

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

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

My main concern is having a working computer, and I can't really afford costly repairs or a new netbook. I got this one used about 1 1/2 years ago and it has no cd drive/OS boot disk (windows 7 starter came already installed). What should I do? Can I fix the hard drive, or should I replace? I am not at all technically skilled and have limited knowledge but an endless capacity to learn. I called samsung and they suggested I replace the hard drive to the tune of $100-$300 for parts alone, which is too expensiv... Read more

I have an intermitant problem where I get 'Windows failed to start' with the options 1.Start windows normally 2.Launch system repair.
If I select 1. It will run for well over an hour and give a 'cannot repair message' after which it boots normally anyway. If I select 2. It boots fine with no issues.
Now this might seem like a non problem i.e. just select 2. then, but I am not the only one who uses the machine.
I have tried SFC/scannow, which doesn't seem to find anything, I've tried chkdsk etc. with no joy. There also doesn't seem to be anything in the system event logs that gives me a clue, although I admit I'm not hugely familiar with event viewer and where I should be looking, but nothing seems to be leaping out at me.
This seems to happen maybe twice or three times a month on a machine which is used daily, so finding the solution has been tricky.

Answer:Many failed update on history windows failed to configure startup

Hello smeraldan and welcome to Seven Forums.

My usual disclaimer: I'm not an expert at anything. Sometimes malware can prevent Windows Updates from installing. Run a full scan with your personal anti-malware suite. Then use the free Malwarebytes to run another full scan. (No anti-malware product is 100% effective 100% of the time. If there was such a thing we'd all be using it.)

Malwarebytes

Another possible problem is if system files became damaged or corrupt. I'd run a system file checker scan from an elevated command prompt (option two.) If problems are found run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

You could also try running the System Update Readiness Tool if you haven't already done so.

System Update Readiness Tool fixes Windows Update errors in Windows 7, Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008 R2, and Windows Server 2008

Try installing the updates again, but this time just do a few at a time (maybe only 5 or so.) Keep track of the KB numbers. Start with the critical updates, then the important, and save the optional for last. If a group of 5 installs OK go on to the next group. If any group fails to install you'll know which group to uninstall. Try installing just one update at a time. If they install OK go on to the next group. Otherwise just ignore the problem update(s) for the time being and continue installing in groups of 5.

Hey guys.. I am very anxious and frustrated about this issue. I have searched frantically all on multiple forums but the solutions are all over and I just can't..
I have seen some really knowledgeable users here while looking at threads to solve my problem so this is my best bet.. I really do not want to lose all my data :/

I am willing to follow any instructions provided as I am very desperate.

Background Information

My laptop automatically boots into Startup Repair, and once it finishes "repairing", the laptop restarts and boots into Startup Repair once again, looping the whole process. The diagnostic and repair details from Startup Repair showed that the "root cause found" was that the "Boot manager failed to find OS Loader", and the repair action for "File repair" and "Boot configuration data store repair failed".

This is the second time this issue has happened, where I tried to boot up my laptop after hibernating it. Prior to encountering this issue again, reboot, sleep, and shutting down my computer worked fine. Also, I think before the two times the issue happened, I was installing some Windows Updates. I am trying to avoid restoring the disk back to factory state.

What I have tried
Letting Startup Repair finish. Just simply loops back.
Running chkdsk /f on my C: drive. No errors and fixes.
Pressing F8 to access Advanced Boot Options does not work. Goes to Startup Repair.

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

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

Can you start in Safe Mode?  To do this, start tapping the F8 key just as the Acer splash screen goes away.
Select Safe Mode and press Enter
 
If that works, then try Safe Mode with Networking
Let us know and we'll move on from there.

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

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

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

Very similar to the situation posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic448339.htmlI have a custom tower with MSI main Board, running Win 7 Pro. Everything was running perfect.

I got the 'Windows Failed to Start' and Startup Repair wasn't able to fix it, any of the eleventy-three billion times I tried it.

Lets take a look at the BlueScreen error message.When you boot your machine, press F8 to list the startup options, exactly as you would if you were trying to enter Safe ModeSelect "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure", as shown here:When your system BSODs, write down the STOP error code, as well as any written out error message back here. The STOP error will always appear, but the message may not. You are looking for this:Please post me the Stop error message.

I have a Dell Optiplex 745 w/Vista. For the last several weeks my system has 'locked up' quite often. This only seems to happen when I am using Outlook. Then I have to power off for the ten seconds and reboot. I am quite sure that Outlook is the culprit because I have to run scan.pst often.

The last time I locked up, two days ago, I rebooted and it said to run startup repair. I did this and let it run for well over 12 hours and it just kept running without any restarts or messages. I don't think it would take this long. I tried to restore back to a date about three weeks ago. Again...it said 'initializing' for the entire day. I powered off.

When rebooting, I press F1 continuously then F8. If I try safe mode with command prompt or network, it starts to load drivers then says 'please wait'. Again...it will say this forever until I power off. If I choose to enable boot log, I just get a blank screen.

Is there anyway to get a command prompt? I have tried the above and also tried while on the repair screen and nothing.

I read that someone else tried sfc/scannow but I cannot get to a prompt to try it.

I have tried rebooting with the system disk which has Vista on it and I do not know how to access it without a prompt.

I just do not know what else to do. I did call Dell tech support and they only suggested the steps listed above which I already tried. As is everyone, I am just trying to avoid a complete restore.

Thanks!

This is the message I receive- "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause."
Booting in safe mode, Dell data safe restore, Last known good configuration, and directory services restore mode all relate back to this error message.
I have no created restore points and no system image recovery. Also my computer did NOT come with a windows 7 disk. Which is a crock in my opinion.
When I do Startup Repair, this is the only problem detected in "View diagnostic and repair details"......
Root Cause Found:Failure while setup is in progress.
System Disk=\device\harddisk0
windows directory=C:\windows
autochk run= 0

I have requested a windows 7 disk from Dell months ago. I received nothing (surprise!). Thinking maybe I input the info wrong, I re-submitted a request today. But I will not hold my breath. What options do I have left at this point? The cost of bringing it to a professional isn't far from the cost of replacing this laptop as it is. I will be thankful for any help or advice!

Answer:Error message on startup "Windows failed to start. A recent...."

Hello and Welcome
 
Being that this is a Dell computer, have your tried booting into the Dell Diagnostics by hitting the F12 key when you first turn on the computer and then running a diagnostics on the hardware, especially the hard drive to make sure its not failing.  If the hard drive is failing it will have to be replaced before a repair can be done.

I also deleted several miscellaneous programs (not on C) installed when I bought it. today however it failled to start normally.

you need to download ubuntu or puppy linux. burn the iso to cd using imgburn,once you have the disc set your pc to boot from cd/dvd rom and run from ram,DO NOT INSTALL,when you have it running get what you need off your hard drive if possible,go here for the programmes and you can google for full instructions, http://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rc...kIH4Ag&usg=AFQjCNHf4yS0SxsZMV_usEcMmNsnG5k3Yg

But anyway, my concern is the Startup repair is unable to repair a Windows that is installed in a vhd. Then what should I gonna to do?

Try rolling back using System Restore from System Recovery Options

If this fails you may need to reinstall.

I was running Win XP which finally failed and I was able to enter in safe mode (only, no networking) and ran all the tests I could think of. Hard drive is ok and so I attempted to repair WinXP from the installation CD. However, the PC failed to shut down and restart so I eventually force closed it. Now it won't even load past the initial black windows screen, don't even get the option of going into safe mode.

Is there any way I (or someone) could access the hard drive to retrieve the data? I guess I could reinstall the OS but don't want to do that yet as I'll definitely lose the data.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks.
 

Answer:Win XP failed, repair failed -- can I access hard drive?

Sure, there are many ways. Depending on what you want in the end decides how to proceed.

If you have a lot of space free on the drive, you could boot off a linux dvd and create a new partition. You'd have to shrink the existing, then make a new one. Then you could just copy over the data from the old one to the new one. Then reinstall windows onto the old partition, and copy your stuff back (then delete the partition and expand the remaining to fill the rest of the space).

You can also just boot off a linux disk and copy it to a thumb drive or whatever.

Or you could remove the hard drive and place it in another computer.

Also, I'm not convinced you lose the data if you install Windows again. I'm pretty sure you can install without formatting the drive. Your programs won't work, but it shouldn't overwrite any of your data. This is a non-ideal solution though.

I tried following the directions I found on a thread on this site for writing a new system partition by running startup repair 3 times with other hard drives disconnected but it didn't work. When I try to boot the drive it gives me the option to use grub recovery mode which is odd because i thought I deleted linux. I discovered that my old hdd from my previous installation of windows 7 had the system partition on it, which is a problem because I want to wipe that drive and install ubuntu on it.
The next thing I want to try is running bootrec from the command prompt on the repair disk but I'm unsure of which commands to run. bootrec /fixmbr and bootrec /fixboot are the ones I've seen in my searches. I just don't want to accidentally screw something up. Thanks for your help.
Screenshot in the link.

Answer:Startup Repair 3 times failed to fix problem

Disconnect all other drives, make sure windows is on the 1st sata port on the motherboard, try again. Post back your results.

Having Linux code on the C drive is probably causing the problem.

"Restore failed - error code=0x45d (WIMApplyImage cannot apply image : The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error.) Restore unsuccessful. Please try Restore Operating System to Factory Defaults."
Is there any way I can backup the files on my computer before I do this?

Hi,

My windows failed to load b/c a critical system driver is missing or corrupt.

File: windows/system32/Drivers/gjofl.sys

Status: 0xc0000225

Prior to this, I had received some sort of virus that microsoft security essentials claimed to quarantine. I also ran malware bytes. After the scans, my computer accidentally became unplugged and died (the battery is shot). After trying to restart, I received the error msg.

I have tried booting up in safe mode and it doesn't work.

I also ran diagnostics -- the only msg I received was: "diagnostics not found on utility partition". I have no idea what that means.

I am being prompted to insert my installation disc to repair my comp, but windows was preinstalled so I don't have that option.

Please help!

Answer:Windows failed to start b/c critical driver is missin or corrupt

I dont know the answer, but I have a suspicion, that maybe, that driver has something to do with the virus. I googled the driver, nothing. I looked at my computers drivers (cmd prompt and type driverquery) and I do not have it.

Hello everyone. I'm a big fan of this incredible website but I haven't actually posted here ... until now. Hope someone has some advice for me.

My HP laptop running Vista somehow picked up something nasty. Simple scans were not fixing it, so I figured I'd try to do a System Restore back to a point before I picked it up.

Short story is the Restore failed ... and now I can't get Windows to load even in safe mode.

Here's what I was able to copy manually from the error screen:

(After reboot following System Restore attempt:)

Yesterday I got a blue screen for no apparent reason.
About a month ago, I got the same screen, but when I rebooted everything appeared to be working normally.

This time, I shut it down after the bsod, and started it today. I booted in Safe Mode, just to make sure everything was working properly, but it froze, and brought me to Startup Repair. Startup Repair asked me if I wanted to try to restore to an earlier version, and I said yes, but now it's saying 'Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically.

I attached a picture of the blue screen and the startup repair.

I don't really know where to go from here...

I really don't want to lose my personal files! I just ordered a 200gb external hard drive off amazon to back my stuff up, and I would hate it if I lost all my stuff before I got the chance.

Answer:Computer won't boot after BSOD and failed startup repair

If its a laptop just pull out the drive and use a usb ide/sata connector to salvage what you dont want to lose to your friends computer if they will let you. Then put the info on cds/dvds until you get the external hard drive. On cds they will be safe for a long while until needed again.

Windows automatically updated and then my audio stopped working so as always I tried turning it on and off again but then it got stuck on the spinning thing. I've included a video i you want to see what it looked like.

https://goo.gl/photos/3VQtXAaZ9QN2wev4A, I have not looped the video or added the flashing.

Because this isn't the first time Windows has shit the bed on me I knew to make a repair disc and try to use startup repair. It failed. Next I tried to revert to a previous build. It failed. Next I tried to reset Windows. It failed.

Rerunning startup repair a few times made it do different things but it never worked.

I'm either looking for a solution to this problem or a way to quickly copy all the files off of my boot drive so I can perform a reinstall. (I have an HDD big enough to store the entire boot drive already in the PC)

Thanks

Alright, I'll save you any boring or long-winded overly verbose introductions, although I realize by saying that I may have already exceeded the allotted time for this introduction. Nonetheless, I'm getting a boot error wherein after the windows splash screen, the system hangs, screen goes black and resets. Startup repair doesn't work and I get the bad driver error as described in this thread:
 
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/504168/another-user-with-the-windows-7-startup-repair-offline-bad-driver-issue/
Now, I'm convinced that this has been caused by attempting to update the drivers for my Nvidia GTX 660 because the computer crashed as I was installing the driver. Here's the thing though: It's crashed twice before while attempting to install the same driver, but I was able to use startup repair to restore functionality those other times. This time however, I figured I would attempt a clean install for the driver because it hadn't worked before (checked the "clean install" box when installing Nvidia GTX 660 Driver 344.11  WHQL). This, unfortunately, turned out to be the catalyst control center for my current predicament. It may also be related to Avast as I just recently installed their new internet security suite and I've read that it could cause conflicts with Nvidia. Also, it could have been that I was not only downloading something at the time, I was also watching a video as it was installing the driver, which I imagine is like... Read more

Answer:Startup Repair Offline - Bad Driver - Caused by Nvidia Update?!

At this point, it seems that without a fixlog, my only other option is to reformat and attempt a clean install.

Gateway DX4720-03, Windows 7 HP 64-bit.

Living is south FL can be a bitch when the rains come as there often is a ton of accompanying lightening that plays havoc with the electrical system, even though I have surge protectors inside and outside the house. We just had some very heavy rains with lightening and my computer shut down several times, but I could restart it each time...except for the last time when Windows wouldn't startup. At that point, Start Up Repair came into play. Although I routinely backup on an external drive, of course I never did it this month-DUH!

Results from SUR were error free (error code=0x0) on all the parameters tested, however there were the following error codes reported:

"Unspecified change to the system configuration might have caused the problem."

Repair Action: System Restore
Failed: 0x1f

Repair Action: System Files
Failed: x490

There were more options to select for a recovery task, but I didn't try them as they didn't seem to be as salient as the two above..

As System Repair and System Restore failed, please advise what i should next do.

Answer:Windows won't startup, System Repair and System Restore failed.

What's the date of the most recent backup that you have?

Yesterday my Windows 7 machine crashed a couple times - the first time the screen just went black, and the second time it looked like a video driver problem. There was no BSOD either time, I had to do a hard power off and then restart.

When I started up the computer after the second crash, Windows gave me an option to do a Startup Repair, so I did that. After a half hour or so, it told me that some sort of system files integrity check had failed and it couldn't fix it. But still I was able to boot into Windows and everything seems to be working OK.

I looked in the event log to see if I could find that error about the system files integrity check failing, but I couldn't find it. Should I be worried about the fact that the integrity check failed?

Answer:Startup repair - system files integrity check failed

Run sfc /scannow from a Elevated Command prompt. I believe that is what the repair process was talking about.

I have a Dell Inspiron running both Windows 7 and Ubuntu. Linux boots up fine, but I can't get Windows to boot to the log in screen. I tried startup repair, but it failed to fix the issue. It said that the root cause found was
 
"A patch is preventing the system from starting"
 
I can't do a system restore (no points), or a system image recovery, so is my only option a Dell Factory Image Restore? Note that I do have access to all my windows files via ubuntu.
 
 

Answer:Startup Repair Failed: "A patch is preventing the system from starting"

When you do a "Factory image restore" the partitions of Ubuntu will also be deleted and put back to the default state when the computer was first bought. 
 
 
1. Backup all important files.
 
2. Try Macrium Reflect free or another program to backup your Ubuntu partitions. 
 
3. If you're sure you have backuped your personal files and have a backup from the partitions. Then you may proceed to do a Factory Image Restore.

Sadly my laptop recently stopped being usable and it's hard for me to tell if it's a hardware or software problem. If anyone could help me figure that out and possibly fix it I would be very thankful. I had the laptop recently fall hard to the ground and was so relieved the screen was still good + hard drive good + it ran good up until the next time I hibernated it and then tried to take it out of hibernation. My memory is bad, but I think between that time I installed one or two free utilities related to computer temperature monitoring. While Windows fails to boot, the Windows repair UI's have ran without crashing and I was able to run Linux fine from a USB stick. My hope is that maybe one of those programs installed a driver that is causing the failed boots and it isn't hardware.

I'm good with computers, but not an IT professional or person familiar with the details of what happens in the background with things like using the last known working configuration option, startup repair operations, and safe mode. I'm fuzzy on the memory, but I think I remember in the past I had a flawed software (not related to hardware, just functionality added from driver) only driver installed that even tried to load when I did safe mode.

I did the F8 startup option to prevent auto-rebooting hoping the blue screen would have useful information like a particular driver causing the crash, but it was extremely minimal. I don't have it handy, but it was something like 4 very long 64bi... Read more

Answer:Crash on startup (even safe mode) + repair operations failed to help

Am I correct in that you cannot boot into safe mode? I really need the Dump files to debug it. Which Temp. Monitoring programs did you install? You may try to connect an external hard drive, boot into the recovery environment with the Windows Installation DVD, and use Copy/Paste from the recovery console. See if this helps. Copy & Paste - in Windows Recovery Console . 2 things with this. I would use this opportunity to copy all my personal files to the external drive just in case and also try to go to C:/Windows/Minidump and copy the whole folder to the external. From another computer, zip the folder up and upload the zip file with your next post. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums.

This is about everything you can do when Windows fails to boot. Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot

From a hard drop, I would suspect the hard drive, just as a guess. You may try to run Seatools for DOS, both the short and the long test. SeaTools for DOS and Windows - How to Use

Hi guys.  I have a Dell Inspiron 15r SE 7520 laptop, running Windows 7 64 bit with a dual video card thing going on (integrated Intel Graphics 4000 and an ATI Radeon HD 7730m).  I had upgraded to the newest 13.12 ATI driver recently in an attempt to fix some problems with some of my games running slow.  In the process I messed up my Aero Glass, so I figured I'd uninstall the ATI driver and reinstall it, which I had done before in the past with no problems.
 
I ran the ATI Catalyst driver uninstaller and things were going OK, but partway through it blue-screened.  The message indicated that the problem was due to the display driver timing out during a restart.  I rebooted, and figured I'd go into safe mode.  Instead, I ended up in the Startup Repair utility, which was unable to solve whatever problem has happened. The results from the utility said:

Hi all, I'm a bit of a noob and this is my first post here. Here's my problem:

I have an Acer Travelmate 6293 and have been dual-booting XP and 7 (on separate partitions) for about a year. Suddenly today, when I tried to boot up my laptop into XP, I got a BSOD with the error message 'UNBOOTABLE_PARTITION' or something along those lines. So then I restarted my laptop, and managed to get into the 7 Built-In Recovery Partition. So I went into that and selected Startup Repair. When it said it was completed, I proceeded to restart my laptop and I was greeted by a message: 'A disk read error has occurred. Press CTRL + ALT + DEL to restart.' Again, I did this and when it restarts it shows the same message. I then rebooted and inserted my Windows 7 Disk and went into Repair Your Computer. However, when it searches for a Windows installation, it finds no Operating System and I am prompted to Load Drivers, so obviously I can't Restore your computer using a system image that you created earlier. So I restarted my computer, and booted up again from the Windows 7 Disk. On the language screen, I opened up a Command Prompt using a shortcut which I found on the internet (ALT + F10 IIRC). I then typed in diskpart, and then list volume. This is what comes up...

Sorry if this has already been answered/wrong place. I looked at Google but thought I double check here (since the solutions via Google seem to be refering to a different OS to mine)

First of: Windows Vista, SP2, 64 bit.

Now sometimes (and not now since I am writing this) my Keyboard/Mouse just stops working. It freezes completely and I am unable to use it and am hence required to restart the computer. This happens at random occasions but it usually involves opening some program or what not (I noticed a prominent pattern that the mouse/keyboard freezes whenever I go to speedtest.com measure my speed and then once the download speed bar is finished and upload is about to begin my computer freezes).

I had a look at my event viewer and noticed this:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

Now I am not sure whether this appears at the start and then once I run a program or do something (like go on speedtest.com) the commuter then freezes (i.e. my mouse/keyboard is non-responsive) or the error message comes up after my computer freezes but any help in fixing this mouse/keyboard freezing would be very grateful.

If I was to tamper with the reg information, is it possible that I wont ever get access to my keyboard/mouse? My worry is that I might change some value so that I will have no way of getting to the computer with the keyboard/mouse (I am not good with bios) and would not be able to get help on the internet since I can't connect!



It is bad idea

DWORD Start may have following values

0 -boot ,1 -system ,2- auto ,3 -demand, 4 -disabled.

Hi, this is my first post, and I am not even sure if anyone on this forum can help me. I am having a major problem with my computer. I have a Lenovo laptop, an ideapad. I am running on windows 7. A few days ago I started up my computer, and it showed the windows sign as it usually does when starting up. But it stayed on that screen for ages, so I clicked enter to see if it was responding, and it wasn't, it just stayed there for a while. Then suddenly I was sent to the blue screen, for a few seconds, and then it told me my startup wasn't working. It asked me to log in as an administrator so I did. It then took me to the system recovery page. I tried doing the system repair, and all the other options. I have saved my computer many times, but when I tried to restore to a previous save point it said I didn't have any. I think the part of the disk that had the save files was corrupted. Anyways, after having a disk check done for almost 30 strait hours at still 7 percent, :/, I went to problem details. This came up.

Hello Irish614,

Apologies for the delay.

Please let me know if you are still there and require assistance. In that case please update me on the current condition of the computer. Also download the latest FRST and post a fresh log.
