0xc000021a windows won't boot on my desktop

Question: 0xc000021a windows won't boot on my desktop

My computer came with windows 7 and I got a free upgrade to 8 and everything has been good up until 2 weeks ago.....the computer won't boot. It tells me there's a problem and that it's collecting data and will restart automatically and also has the code 0xc000021a. I can't get it to boot into safe mode and I also can't get past the error screen it just keeps trying to boot up. What can I do

Preferred Solution: 0xc000021a windows won't boot on my desktop

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.)

I have a g75vw Asus laptop which for the most part has worked fine. Late June the computer simply wouldn't boot into windows giving the error 0xc000021a next to the " " icon. This computer was originally using windows 7 but I upgraded soon after windows 8 was released in October. For about a week before the crashing, I had been using a ubuntu 12.04 live boot jump drive for learning python. It was after a linux boot that the computer crashed but I do not think the events are related. I had also installed connectify.me, a program that turns a laptops wi-fi adapter into a router which worked well for about a week before the crash. I have gone through all of the generic hoops including safe mode(s) system recovery using a usb flash drive, refresh, and the existent yet worthless self diagnosing tool. Microsoft was unable to help without a 100 dollar fee. 

Answer:Windows 8 doesn't boot. Error 0xc000021a

0xc000021a error usually means some issue with crucial system files, which could be actually caused by some bad hardware as well. I'd start with checking hard drive... Run hard drive diagnostics: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic28744.html/page__view__findpost__p__160520Make sure, you select tool, which is appropriate for the brand of your hard drive.Depending on the program, it'll create bootable floppy, or bootable CD.If downloaded file is of .iso type, use ImgBurn: http://www.imgburn.com/ to burn .iso file to a CD (select "Write image file to disc" option), and make the CD bootable.For Toshiba hard drives, see here: http://storage.toshiba.com/storage-services-support/warranty-support/software-utilities#diagnosticNote : If you do not know how to set your computer to boot from CD follow the steps here

I recently updated my PC to windows 10. It worked fine for a couple of weeks, but then it stopped booting. I started it regularly, and it showed the HP logo with the spinning circle, but then it just loaded into a flashing grey and black screen. Booting it in safe mode only got me a blue screen error, with the 0xc000021a error. I've looked pretty much everywhere, and I can't find a fix that works. Sfc scans stop at 100% verification and say "Windows resource protection could not perform the requested operation." I tried "CHKDSK C: /R, but it found no errors. Any other fixes seemed to require launching windows for downloads / file access, and I can't appear to do that. Any help would be much appreciated, so thank you to anyone who replies!

Hi Everyone.
Hopefully I can resolve this... I've tried everything to sort this out but nothing so far has yielded any positive results.

I cannot boot my Win 10 Pro at all. All efforts result in the error C00021a. We can go into what I've done if you like (no problem with that) but for the moment, can anyone tell me how to do an inplace upgrade (Win 10 to Win 10)? I think this will probably sort it out since DISM is unable to do anything constructive. Problem is that I cannot do an "upgrade" as to do that you must be running Windows (normal boot) from the start otherwise Windows Setup throws up an error telling me to start the machine normally and run the upgrade from the external media. Is there any way to do this upgrade to bypass this error? I can't boot normally so it's impossible to fulfill this criteria.

I have a pile of specialised music programs on this machine. I really don't want to have to install everything again as I have them set up "just so". Hope someone can help.

I read the initial admin post about installing a program to help you guys with dump files - but I can't install that either as the machine won't boot into Windows. Of course, I've run the usual sfc scans and dism routines. Sfc won't run and repair - will only check. HDD scans come up ok. Dism routines will check (all comes up ok) but not restore health. Therefore I'm really at the refresh stage. I have boot media to do this but can't get any further...

Answer:BSOD 0xc000021a - Cannot boot Win 10 at all

Maybe this will help? https://www.reddit.com/r/techsupport...oot0xc000021a/ (4th post down).

Basically you boot the Windows 10 install disc then go to a Command Prompt.
Copy the existing C:\Windows\system32\config file to a a Backup folder.
Copy C:\Windows\system32\config\RegBack to C:\Windows\system32\config, replacing what's there.
Exit the install and do a normal boot and see if you are back to booting again.

If yes, would be a good idea to do a System Restore to a date before the problem started happening if you have System Restore enabled.

Hey guys I keep getting the following BSOD 0xc000021a error at boot on Win 8.1 Pro wmc x64. I cannot log on to windows, as I have computer background, I have tried to diagnose it myself but unfortunately I am at a dead end and need help. The only way I can gain access is by running Win 8.1 with driver signature enforcement disabled at start-up.

I would like to say I'm sorry in advance. I'm unable to use the required programs to neatly bundle and zip the crashlogs. This is my only computer in the house at the moment and I'm am only able to write this from a live usb of Unbutu I flashed at university. As the title suggests, I can't boot into my laptop to run the programs so I have no other means of presenting the info. I was only able to get the logs, again, by using the live USB and digging through the HDD. (It's not letting me install WINE either)

As for the actual problem itself, I have no idea what to do. It bluescreened randomly yesterday and never let me back on. It lets me on the automatic repair tool (which does nothing) and the command prompt. I ran chkdsk and memory dio and both came up clean. BIOS works no problem. I tried disabling signatures and it still crashes on restart. I honestly don't think it's a hardware problem at this point, but I could be wrong.

Any help would be appreciated. If there's more than just the minidump that needs to be included please tell me.

Thanks

Quick edit: These seem to be the dumps for the initial few bluescreens. If I recall correctly, it was a Kernal_inpage error that kicked off this whole mess. It seems to not be creating new dumps each time I get that weird hex-looking error (0xc000021a) each time I try to boot up. I can only tell by the filename, since it says December 1st on the dump and I've gone through more than a few bluescreens on the 2nd.

It has an SSD and I have the original HD which I installed and the computer will boot to that. However it has windows 8 as the operating system. I had done the upgrades to 8.1 and 10 but they are not on the HD? Is there any way to get the windows 10 loaded again? If not, I will continue to get by with Windows 8.

Hi

I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and it was working fine for a few days but now whenever I try to boot it up I get BSOD with error code 0xc000021a.

I've tried the following 'fixes':

System restore --- Runs for a few minutes and then says "Could not restore your computer. No changes were made"

Clicking on any of the advanced startup options --- BSOD

Reinstalling windows 10 with a usb --- Results in it going into circles with this messagea "The computer started using the Windows installation media. Remove the installation medial and restart your computer so that Windows starts normally. Then, insert the installation media and restart the upgrade. [Do not select iCustom [advanced]I to perform an upgrade. iCustom [advanced]I installs a new copy of Windows and deletes your programs and settings.)"

I've taken the usb out and restarted the computer several times, even called Microsoft Technical Support. They had no idea what to do.

I used to be able to access the command prompt and I tried everything suggested in this article here https://neosmart.net/wiki/0xc000021a/. The reason I say "used to" is because things recently got alot worse when I changed the boot order and now it just turns black after the bios screen.

Using Windows 8.1 digital purchase, no CD.

This classic error just started happening yesterday. Had no problem with the pc in the morning, came home late and when I tried to turn it on it didnt got pass the error screen. All I remeber doing in the morning is an adobe flash update which I did not install, just dowloaded to install later. Then nothing else, I was using firefox and did nothing else.

Tried almost everything to solve it.
Every cmd command that is around.
Sfc scannow
Bcdedit into safe mode, with and without cmd, and bootmenu policy.

Pc just wont start in safe mode either.

Tried to restore to previous version, an error comes up saying it was not possible. Tried all three of the available dates.

Tried pressing F8 and starting safe mode from there and still no result.

None of the "repair" options work of course.

I can acsess the BIOS, on the gygabyte screen. Not sure what to chabge in there. Anyways, tried with "fast boot" and same error occurs.

The copy is a digital purchase, so no CD.

Any ideas? Appreciate it

Answer:Error 0xc000021A PC wont boot

Do you have any dump files under C:\Windows\Minidump ? If so, please copy them from that directory and upload them here. You should be able to copy them via command line if that's all you can access (if you're not sure how to do this, let me know and I can help) - either that, or you can burn a Linux LiveCD (such as Ubuntu or Mint), boot off of it, and use a GUI environment to copy them to an external storage device.

https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...=vs.85%29.aspx
Try Last Known Good Config boot option.

When you ran SFC, did it find anything? Usually it will only repair stuff if you have a disc in the drive for it to reference.

Have you tried running a disk check? At the command prompt:
chkdsk c: /f /r

I recently bought a refurbished thinkpad (T420 i5 2540, SSD, 8gb ram, NVidia nvs 4200) with windows 7 professional. It worked fine at first, I could turn it on without a problem. However, as soon as windows updates installed, and I rebooted it, it refused to turn on. The power and Bluetooth lights would come on, then shut off after a few seconds. I unplugged, removed the battery, and pressed the power button a few times then held it, but that didn't help. After several attempts it finally boots, but BSODs as soon as it gets to "windows is starting". If I leave it for a long time (several hours) and try again, it often starts up normally. This whole process has happened many, many times over the last 3 days, with little difference each time. Launching startup repair just BSODs and it goes back to not turning on at all. System restore doesn't work, and I tried formatting the hard drive and going for a fresh install. It booted normally at first, but as soon as windows updates kicked in, it started failing to boot again. I was able to get a single crash dump (which should be attached). The bug check was 0xc000021a, on ntoskrnl.exe, at address ntoskrnl+72a40. I've tested SSD, ram, processor, etc., but they don't have any issues. I've never really had to deal with repeated BSODs before, so I have no idea what's going on.

Answer:BSOD on boot from clean install bug code 0xc000021a

In this case, it would be the best to go for another clean reinstall.

Because, from the description it appears to be a driver issue, a driver is conflicting during startup; and at the time the BSOD occurs, it does not have sufficient information to record the failing module in the dump.

Perform a clean reinstall exactly as suggested here: Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 .... hopefully it will solve this issue.

So it all started last night when i accidentally tripped on my power cord, unplugging it from tthe tower during the login screen. At first, I thought nothing of it, and I just restarted the computer. But unfortunately I was met with the BSOD with that error code. All of the online solutions I have encountered that don't involve removing all my files or using a windows 8 installation disk I have tried.
So then after the BSOD I restart and get to a screen saying automatic repair failed. I try to refresh the PC- no luck. I'm definitely not resetting my PC and losing all my files so I go into advanced options. Foolishly I have no backup USB or anything so I try a system restore. Nothing happens, same old BSOD. Then I try the various command console solutions i found in the advanced settings command prompt.All of them don't work and give me a reply saying that the image was not found or "drwtsn32.exe" was not found in the image specified or whatever. It is always prefaced with "x:\windows\system32", not C:\. I cannot start in safe mode and disabling driver signature enforcement also didn't work. Any help before i just buy a windows 8 installation disk would be greatly appreciated.

The computer automatically restarted and directed me to the automatic repair screen. Choosing restart will cause the PC to repeat the error again.
 
I tried the method stated in http://appuals.com/best-fix-steps-fix-error-0xc000021a/ but it does not work.
 
I downloaded GTA V from steam on the day before the PC crashed and I ran it. This was the only program I download recently before the PC crash

Yesterday I successfully installed Windows 10 as per Microsoft instructions only to find today an error message stating “Error 0xc000021a Terminate yes or no”. I clicked yes thinking this was the correct course of action, but unfortunately, I have not been able to connect to Windows since.
When starting my PC a message appears stating there has been a problem and will restart in a few moments. An automatic repair screen appears followed by a screen asking “Choose your keyboard layout”. This screen is frozen and I’m unable to use the mouse or touchscreen. I can proceed no further.
My PC affected is an HP Touch smart 310

As this is my first post, I did look for similar issues, but didn't find one.


I am by no means a computer expert, but have grown up around them, and have used them actively for the majority of my life, so I have a fair familiarity with them.

I recently completed my first PC build, and everything worked flawlessly. Windows 10 installed and ran fine, all my hardware was recognized without issue, and everything updated automatically upon startup. My goal was a strictly game-centric build, no overclocking or anything.

I come home today, and realize that my PC goes into the windows auto repair immediately, prompting me with an 0xc000021a error. My motherboard debug LCD was prompting me with b2 (short) 99 (short) a2 (long) my manual is very vague about it, but from what I have gleaned, it has to do with my peripherals, so I unplugged mouse and keyboard (supposedly 99 represents one or the other), no luck.

I initially tried to do a system reset, and it got to about 20% (both with and without saving personal files) and said that the process could not be completed, so I resorted to safe mode.I tried booting the computer in safe mode just to try to make some progress, and then upon rebooting to enter safe mode, it froze. I let it sit for several minutes before I manually reset the computer. Now it cycles between black screen, and MSI logo back and forth. I can enter BIOS, if I time it right. I can't get it to bring up the windows advanced options screen (to do system... Read more

I am upgrading some machines, most go without a hitch but some have a mysterious BSOD.

I attached the dumps of a Windows 8 machine, i use MDT to upgrade to Windows 10 v1607 + do windows updates. BSOD happens after the first real boot (which means upgrade + updates have been done)

Already tried swapping the disk in a very simular machine (same model, different bios) but the problem follows the disk.

Anyone who can help me or point me in the right direction?

Hello and welcome to TenForums

The error seems to be related to a problem with the session manager initialisation.

The Winlogon process terminated unexpectedly.

If you can boot into safe mode please try to run the system file checker and repair the system files. It might also be worth running a disk check with repair as well.

Hi, today - after installing a firmware upgrade for windows10 on my surface 2 and a first successful reboot - I checked again for updates and found a new one that failed to install (didn't write down the error code, there was no specific explanation).
After a second shutdown I've got a 0xc00021a on reboot.
I don't have a backup or a restore point. I then followed the suggested steps to troubleshoot this error. I tried the "verify.exe" utility for drivers, which did not help.
I tried the Windows Settings "Troubleshoot" options: "Reboot" and "Safe mode with network", then I tried to "Disable driver signature enforcement" with no luck (same error).
Then I tried to reset the system from a Windows 10 USB installation, with the option "keep my files", but, surprisingly, I got the same error again and the process rolled back.
I really appreciate any help to solve this problem!

I recently took in this laptop for my neighbor. The original idea was to scan and clean up the system. I set the laptop up in my office, ran an MSE full scan with no issues. Then ran a full Malwarebytes scan, which returned a few pups, which were removed.

After tending to other matters, I turned back to the laptop to find notification that there was a problem and windows had to restart. I ran another MWB scan only to have the system restart again. This time, the system tried to repair itself with automatic repair. No go. All reboots ended up back at the advanced startup options screen. No ability to restore the system image, no system restore. All I could get to was the cmd prompt.

Googling turned up all sorts of people with this issue (mostly older posts), but very few solutions.

This fix got my system booted again by removing pending update operations.

Apparently, an MS update is the source of the problem. To further reinforce this, until I turned off automatic updating, it would happen again. I also disconnected the machine from my network to revoke its internet access.

Hi All..

I was reviewing my windows updates and saw two optional updates that were pending. First one was for MS office and it went through fine. Second one was some update to AMD vision control center. During that update screen flashed couple of times and went for re-start. After that I am unable to get into the system. I tried safe mode/debugging/low resolution mode etc.. But all resulted in the same blue screen with the 0xc000021a error message.

I am able to go only to command prompt. Nothing else (fortunately I am able to backup my photos by connecting external hard drive and using command prompt). I checked the SRT log file but it doesn't say any issue. All passed.

I tried refresh PC but it came back and said "There was a problem refreshing your PC. No changes made".

I tried using win ISO image bootable flash drive. It couldn't get through me in (I just tried with PC repair option when I booted with ISO image).

Is there a way I can get over it without re-installing?

Thanks in advance...

STEP 3: Again type System Root\System32\Drwtsn32.exe and then in the window choose the option which are Append to existing log file, Create crash dump and Visual Notification.
STEP 4: After setting it up restart the computer by pressing F8 in the startup and select Last known good configuration.
STEP 5: Once it got booted up, again restart the system in the normal and now try to look at your optional updates to make sure not to install whatever may have broken it before.

If this does not work then you may have to reinstall.

Greetings,

I receive a BSOD everytime I restart windows 8.1 or whenever windows restarts automatically to install updates (although it finishes updating successfully on reboot) with error code 0xc000021a. Besides that, the PC works normally. A few days ago the problem was reversed, i.e. Windows crashed on shut down with the same error but not on restart, this happened after I uncheched the Turn on fast startup option in power options which apparently solved similar problems for other people. I had to perform a Windows Refresh, keeping both files and installed apps intact, to reverse the PC in the previous condition so now it crashes again on restart but afterwards boots normally, though with some delay. I tracked the problem to Winlogon process terminating unexpectedly but I don't know how to fix the problem since a reinstallation of Windows didn't solve it. I suspect that a third party program is causing the problem and since I kept all of them after the refresh it still causes problems. Since I am not an expert however I could be totally wrong. The last incident happened today (18/02/2014) on restart due to a windows update. I would greatly appreciate any help offered on this matter.

Thank you

Hi I've been experiencing BSODs for the past week and was using Windows 8. As many system files was corrupted I thought it was causing by my faulty hard drive. So, I freshly installed Windows 8.1 Pro x64 on my PC. Then, I installed all required drivers, Avast! Free Antivirus, Comodo Firewall and some softwares. Now again I am getting occasional BSODs. Even sometimes when my computer becomes active from idle mode it automatically restarts and after reboot it shows information about last BSOD.

I checked minidumps with nirsoft's BlueScreenView and got that those BSODs are caused by the same ntoskrnl.exe error 0xc000021a. I am no expert when tackling BSODs. I would greatly appreciate any help offered on this matter.

I booted my backup PC with Windows 10 Preview on it after seeing the availability of build 10041 announced. The update was there along with a lot of other invalid updates. I boot up WIN10 at at least every other day to see what's new. So I was surprised see so many of these other updates. Many of them were for Intel HD 4600 graphics and ASUS Bluetooth hardware that would be imbedded on the MB. But my Win10 PC is AMD based and has AMD Radeon 3300 on-board graphics and no on-board Bluetooth. The strange thing is that those updates that cause the error are appropriate for my other main PC which is ASUS Z97-PRO and Intel i-469K based with Intel on-board HD4600 graphics... and ASUS on-board Bluetooth. It's spooky but it is as if windows update is confusing its search with my other Windows 7 PC. In WIN10 9926 Windows Update you can't decline an update that the system finds for you.

The system suddenly does a restart and then it can't find the C: drive. I have to power off the power supply for 10 sec and restart to get back to being able to see the SATA1 drive. I had to work through three cycles of those invalid updates and on the last I got the final 21a error code... after that on the next Win10 boot the build 10041 started to install normally.

Today, I've been racking my brain trying to figure out how to recover from a problem with winlogon.exe which caused a "Windows logon process terminated" error with codes 0xc00021a and 0xc000034.

I found this article and it helped but didn't solve the problem. I thought I was faced with having to run a repair of the Windows installation, if not re-install.

That is until I decided to scan winlogon.exe using one of the online scanning services, like Jotti or Virus Total, to see if winlogon.exe had been infected. That's when I discovered the file was MISSING from \windows\system32. A Google search on a missing winlogon.exe file turned up this thread which provided the solution I needed!!!!

Many thanks to "coderitr" for your post! Copying winlogon.exe from \windows\servicepackfiles to \windows\system32 solved the problem beautifully!

Thanks!!!!!

I have a Windows 2000 Advanced Server system that is crashing on boot with a STOP 0xc000021a (abnormal winlogon or csrss exit) with exit status 0x00000080. It is on an Integrated xSeries Server in an iSeries 270, but I'm pretty sure that this is a Windows problem, not one with the host AS/400 system, because I was able to install a Windows system in a new image, and use it to look at the contents of the original image (AS/400 PC compatibility cards allow you to switch between multiple PC OS images). I checked the system logs for the original Windows system, and there were no messages relating to the crash. Dr. Watson was set as the debugger in the registry, but it doesn't appear to be saving a log or memory dump. No msgina replacement is installed. I bought the system used, and it was crashing like this when I got it, so I am not sure what change triggered this crash. How do I find out what is causing this crash so I can fix it?

Answer:Windows 2000 Advanced Server STOP 0xc000021a

You problem c000021a error is from winlogon.exe crashing.If none of these work, you might have to reinstall windows and use backups to restore the files.I1.) Download the UBCD 4 Windows and if you have access to another server with the same OS, copy the file winlogon.exe to a flash drive, the file is located under C:\WINNT\System32\winlogon.exe. Boot to the UBCD, It will ask you what you want to boot to, use your arrow keys on your keyboard to highlight Ultimate Boot CD 4 Windows, press enter, and it will load a windows XP interface. If it asks you any questions about starting drivers, network is unneeded, and is it askes you about USB, press yes. You will need to insert the flash drive, and, go to my computer. Locate the flash drive, and, copy the winlogon.exe from the flash drive to C:\WINNT\System32. It may ask you if you want to replace an existing file, press yes. Now, restart the server and boot from the hard drive. If this fixes your problem, your are in luck, if not, follow these instructions. 2.) If you use a backup program that makes a bootable disk for recovering data, and you backed up the entire hard drive, try to use that. If your winlogon.exe file was deleted, this could recover it. 3.) If you use the backup program that comes with windows, and, you backed up the entire hard drive, you can repair windows be booting to your Windows 2000 server disk, when the screen comes up with the options, about 5 minutes after booting from the disk, hit "R" on your keyboard f...

had one last week that was a little different and it just magically disappeared (I'm building a new computer as soon as this semester ends if this computer will last that long).

I have MOST everything backed up on an external hard drive, but when i had tried to copy the my documents folder, it kept giving me an error, and I don't remember if I copied any of it over or not. The programs are all backed up, but AFAIK any documents I had are still on there, and I'd REALLY REALLY like to make a clean sweep through the computer and get as much copied over as possible.

It's windows xp home with SP3. It started after running an AVG scan overnight and the computer went on standby during the scan. My mom tried to wake the computer up and it froze and when i rebooted it (hit the power button once and it gave me the option to shut down, restart or go to standby like it would if i had gone to the start menu and done it) it gave me a BSOD (process1_initialization_failed), and i tried again and it gave me a different BSOD (the one im posting about).

One night 5 weeks ago my All in One computer froze and after several hours I did a hard shut down. When I rebooted the computer would not boot and I received error 0x000000f.

I used Gparted and was able to repair the boot files and then was able to get the computer to boot from several different ISO disks I keep on hand. Hiren's Boot disk being one of these. I tried copying files I need to save but this takes forever as I am not seeing specific files I would like to save. But I can see my Norton N360 backup and all the files seem to be in these folders.

Added anything to this new PC before starting this process (hardware) anything connected except keyboard and mouse ? Since it is brand new i may think of sending it back it maybe hardware related. Unless want to go further and try some resolutions. What did shutting down and rebooting do so far for it ?

recently i installed a new power supply, video card, and added a stick of memory to my computer.

while playing WoW yesterday it shut down and would not turn back on, so i opened the case to find that the main power from the PSU to the mobo was halfway unplugged, i plugged the wire back in and turned the computer back on but now it keeps shutting itself off before even reaching my desktop.

i think i may have short circuited something but i have no idea what i need to do to fix/repair this problem.
any help would be greatly appreciated

Answer:will not boot windows desktop

Hello,

Try unplugging the power cable to your PSU for 2-3 minutes, then plug it back up and try again.

Try removing all unecessary hardware devices from your PC, including optical drives, sound card and extra RAM modules, leaving just your hard drive, one RAM module and graphics card connected (if you are using one).

Also try using another PSU.

Answer:windows 8 boot to the desktop??

That article is just showing what should have been an option, but it's not.
If you want to boot straight to desktop then you need to use a 3rd part program like startisback, classic shell or one of the many others out now.

There was a bad thunderstorm the other day and I lost power while my computer was on. This wasn't the first time this has happened so once I got power back, I turned my computer on again. It takes my pc 5 minutes to get to the desktop and while that took place, I lost power again. After I got power back and waited an hour to make sure it was going to stay, I turned my computer on. This time I saw a screen that told me Windows did not shutdown correctly and asked me to enter safe mode(or with networking or command prompt) or start normally. I chose to start normally but when it shows the Windows XP boot screen (http://img828.imageshack.us/img828/1...bootscreen.jpg) it seemed to hang. The bar on the bottom of screen kept going but I'd never get to the Windows XP login screen.

Seeing as how it appeared to be stuck to me, I manually rebooted the pc and I again was given options on how to start windows, I selected Safe mode this time but it gave me a list of what I assume it was going to be loading (a lot of .sys files and stopped at JGOGO.sys) but that too froze to me.

I then took out the Hard drive and placed it into another computer but it was the same thing, only this time it would reboot by itself.

Answer:Windows XP won't boot to desktop

The power failure likely caused some data errors on your drive. You need to run chkdsk /r on it. You can do that by installing the drive as a slave into your other computer.

It is always a good idea to have your data backed up prior to running chkdsk with the /r switch.

You could also run chkdsk /r from a Recovery Console session but you can't back up your data that way so it would be riskier than the slave method.

Hey guys I was wondering if you could offer me some help and advice.

The thing is I was just browsing the internet when all of a sudden the computer decides to restart itself and then when it was loading up again decided to hang on the vista boot.

When turning it on I see all the usuals, HP load screen and then on to the hard drive check thing where the harddrive is listed and then where the operating system would usual load - the monitor just changes its resolution and stays on a blank screen. I don't hear any of the "welcome" sounds which vista gives so im presuming its not loading.

I have gave the computer a good clean which is was in great need of thinking that it may have just overheated as it has been left on for the past few days.
However this has not helped in the load matter yet has made it a lot quieter which I suppose is one benefit from this...

If anyone could offer any help or support it would be much appreciated!
(Was thinking the graphics card may have failed but surely I would still hear the vista load sounds?)

This post has instructions on how to boot windows 8 to the desktop.
The alternate solution is the easiest.
It is toward the bottom of the page.
http://www.7tutorials.com/how-boot-desktop-windows-8-skip-start-screen
I actually use the startup folder in appdata rather than program data,
but it should work either way.
Remember to use the file that is not the executable file
in the startup folder.
If you use the executable,it will just open a window with the desktop
contents shown.
I used this file and a shortcut to media center to start media center on boot.
If you put media center in startup without the desktop file,metro
will stay on top and block it.

From the Forums: Windows 8 feature - Boot to desktopTablet users probably love the new interface Microsoft created for Windows 8, but if you're using a laptop or desktop with mouse and keyboard, it could be quite frustrating to boot directly to the new Start screen. Some members of our forums probably felt the same way and began looking for a solution to their problem. In a recent forum post, Neowin member 'Fred 69' has found a way to boot directly to the desktop, without using any third party app. It's a built in Windows feature, although it's not an obvious one.The feature is hidden somewhere between the folder options. All you have to do is to go to options in any Explorer window, choose the 'view' tab and click on 'Restore previous folder windows at log-on'.The system will boot to the desktop at startup, but only if you leave an explorer window open at shutdown. It's still a great way if you don't want to use special software, such as Stardock's Start8.http://www.neowin.net/news/from-the-forums-windows-8-feature---boot-to-desktop

Last night my wife shut down her desktop, and it froze. I turned it off manually (ctl-alt-del) wouldn't work. This AM, she turned it on, and it stops at "disk boot failure, insert system disk and press enter". I tried using my Norton Internet Security disk - it just takes me to an A: prompt. I tried my Windows XP disk, and got to the Recovery Console, and ran CHKDSK, which said there were errors. Ran chkdsk /p, which took 2 hours to complete - still no go. It's an old computer (to be immediately replaced), but she had non-backed up data on her hard drive. There is also a second hard drive on the machine (where I back up my data). Is there any way I can somehow get into windows to transfer her files to the backup drive, which I'll then install in the replacement machine? If not, is there any way I can extract her data without going to a pro and paying through the nose? I do have a new laptop (hence this post) if that can be used in any way.

The machine is a Micron PII 933 mHz, running XP Home. Help!!!!

Hi I have installed windows 7 on my PC and now I find that the display freezes when leaving the desktop idle for a period of time. The only way to get back is to force a re boot to the PC. I thought maybe the installation went in wrong so I reformatted hard drive and re installed the operating system again. Re load my normal windows programs and thought all was well until it happened again.
So I thought I would look on the forums to see if any one else has a problem? Found this forum and now I don't feel so bad. I have tried some of the ideas in the above postings but still happens after a short period of time maybe 1/2 hours.
I did how ever look into system rating the PC in properties from the computer button on start programs and ran the system check. After a while the report on screen said Can not rate system at present Window driver problem! what ever this means? Maybe thats why we are having a problem with freezing? Help I do like Win 7 and would like to keep using it so I will keep an eye on this thread to see if any one has a fix? Thanks for reading Peter

Answer:Windows 7 desktop freeze then re boot

Your nv_agp driver isn't running. That is for your AGP slot to work well. You do have AGP style video card, right? Update the chipset drivers for your motherboard. Because now, it's only using PCI to PCI bridge. No good.

And you have Bonjour on your pc. Recommended to Google on how to remove.

Another recommendation: Open Computer (Windows Explorer), click uninstall or change a program. Use this to remove NVidia 3D Vision or similar.

Update your Steam. Unrelated, but I see it crashed on you. http://store.steampowered.com/about/

There are updates for your Adobe Reader.

Use msconfig (because easier for you than Regedit) from start menu. Copy and paste that into search box, hit enter. Go to startup tab.

Uncheck QuickTime Task, Adobe ARM, Adobe Reader Speed Launcher, Google Update. Hit ok.

Please fill in your system specs better if you are able to. Thanks.

Answer:windows update desktop cannot boot

If i could try to get a picture. Your machine is power off. You power it on, it starts but after about a second it dies. It may try this many times or you press the power and it does this. You don't see any vendor logo or "BIOS" type screens. Is this correct?

If so this is a hardware issue. Are you hearing any beeps as it starts? These beeps can tell you information. What is the detailed model number of your unit.

What I could recommend if you are into it, open your case. Ensure you ground yourself so you don't introduce a static discharge. You likely know this, I can never tell from oyur designation, static can end the life of certain computer parts. You might try reseating cards, cables etc. Given it a try.

If this doesn't work uninstall any addins you don't need. Extra drive, sound cards, etc. Try it. Then uninstall all memory except one stick, may have to reference manual to see what position the only stick needs to be in, try it. Try a different stick. Really important here that you don't have any static build up.

If this fails and you have one, test PSU. Maybe even take PSU to shop and let them test.

The freezing may have been the precursor to the failure. Hopefully it will be something as simple as a bad stick of memory that has failed.

Always include PC model in your posts.
F8 doesn't work with Windows 10, and F10 never worked with any version of Windows on Dell PCs.  Only F12 works with Win 10.
If you didn't create a recovery drive, you will have to create a bootable USB with Win 10 and repair the installation. You can download the files for free from Microsoft.

Is it possible to use the windows 7 media that came with my pc, to install windows 7 on another hard drive(inside the same desktop), and then i guess upgrade to windows 10 while on the new boot drive so i essentially have the Windows 7 boot drive I am using right now and another drive with windows 10. can this be done? or I would need to buy a new copy of windows? I am wondering if I can do it with one license and disk. I mean the computer its running on is the same. And of course both hard drives wouldn't be running windows at the same time.

My mom's Dell Optiplex Desktop computer will not boot windows.
When you turn it on you get the Dell splash screen, then the screen askign you how you want to boot since last time it had an improper shutdown, if i select Normal or Last Known Good Configuration it will go to the Windows XP loading screen for a minute or so before the whole thing shuts off.
I can get it to boot to safe mode so I don't think the issue is with the HD.
I messed around with the RAM chips since she had several of different sizes from different manufacturers and the 256mb one that was likely original to the PC was able to get through the windows loading screen but it immediately goes to Check Disk and gets to ~15% before shutting off. It will not respond to my wireless keyboard to abort check disk, and I do not have a wired one available.

I have not seen it today, but last time I was working on it I got "Thermal Event" errors even after opening it up and cleaning the bejezus out of if. The thing is spotless inside and is not overheating due to dirt.

Any suggestions are welcome. I am going to see if I can find my old XP disk but I'm not optimistic that it'll turn up.

Thanks in advance

So I have had this trouble for a month now. I moved from my apartment to the new home I purchased and made certain I was the one to pack the computer, which was basically the last thing to go before we left.

At any rate, this was a custom built PC that isn't even a year old. All parts purchased in 2015. When i power on the pc normally it doesnt boot into windows, but actually every now and again i can actually get it to boot. I have tried various trouble shooting for this circumstance. Swapped ram around, removed CMOS, reseated video card, etc. It can't be the ram as I've tried every single chip and I have 4 ram chips. I don't have any other video cards, PSU, or motherboard to try out to rule out the problem. Any suggestions? It completely puzzles me as to why it will randomly boot up sometimes but 9/10 times it just sits there with a black screen. Oh and by the way I get no beep codes from the motherboard anymore. No beeps at all.

The machine belongs to a local museum and has a LOT of files on it, so I am really hoping I won't have to wipe and reinstall everything.

Answer:Windows 10 desktop won't boot to login screen?

When you typed fixboot and fixmbr, did you run them from C:?

Anyway, do you have backup? If not, make one. Kyhi's Recovery tools is good option. Make bootable USB drive from ISO and run Macrium reflect, make image of selected drive to external one.

On Kyhi's drive there is also Minitool partition wizard, which is good at fixing booting problem.

Can you boot to safe mode?

Hi guys,

After suffering a nasty malware infection, I enabled DEP for all system processes, after having rebooted, DEP comes up right away saying it cant launch normal windows processes such as explorer.exe, winnit.exe. So I cannot even get to desktop or launch anything, even taskman is marked as a threat!

I put in the XP disc, rebooted and tried the recovery console, as per some suggestions on the web, I tried this command to force DEP off. Problem is recovery console does not understand the /raw switch.

bootcfg /raw /id 1 "/noexecute=AlwaysOff /NOPAE /fastdetect"

Can anyone chime in on this issue?

Thanks.

With the latest BIOS, I do not see any way to instruct the Desktop, Inspiron 3252, Windows 10 to see the USB ports on boot-up.  I want to boot into a simplified linux o/s, but nothing in the BIOS appears to allow selecting the USB for boot, nor by directly calling F12 to offer the USB port for boot-up.

After installing the latest nvidia driver for the gtx580 I get the message,,,windows desktop manager had stopped working. It happens every boot. After searching the net...I reverted to an aero theme,,,same problem,,reinstalled the latest driver again, same problem, run sfc /scannow, no reported issues, but same problem. Checked under services and it is set for automatic setting. Any help is appreciated. Thank you.

Answer:Windows desktop manager fails at EVERY boot

Can you System Restore to before you installed the driver?

Establish a Clean boot disabling the unneeded Nvidia bloatware and everything else in msconfig>Startup and >Services (after Hiding all MS Services) besides AV, any synch, stickies or Gadgets. The rest are freeloaders.

I downloaded an update for transferring files to my Android phone. At completion it told me I needed to run setup.exe which wasn't the name of the program I downloaded so I told it to ignore. The it background downloaded a bunch of programs without permission and told me it needed to restart. I went to MSCONFIG and set the computer to load in Safe Mode w/ Networking so I could run my anti-virus and anti-malware and remove the items it downloaded, but after restart the computer failed to load.

I have left unplugged for over 24 hours and didn't help. According to HP site my computer can't load from disc without telling it to from boot menu which I cant get to.
I push power and I hear power source fan start. The led lights up for about 30-45 seconds and goes out. Makes no beeps or other sounds at all.

Please help...

So as the title says, for some reason this pc has started to take a few minutes to boot after the desktop shows up but before that the system boots fast.

Have a 1tb seagate sata3 drive as the main drive, yes yes i know i should get a ssd but now is not the time, in the mean time i'd like to figure out what could be causing these slowdowns.
After booting is complete the system runs fine, no direct slowdowns of any sort.

What's been tried:
No viruses, no spyware
Not a bad hdd, been testing that
Removed unnecessary processes/programs from running, most of them set to manual if the system needs them.
Defraged, slight speed increase
Defraged registry, only a few times if it's been needed.

Programs starting at bootup:
Comodo IS
Cacheman, tweaking program
Bluetooth app
Smartdoctor, info app for my graphics card
Asus AI suite II, have uninstalled and reinstalled this app but to no change, tested speed with and without it.

Hopefully i've added enough info to start finding some issues.

Answer:Slow boot after desktop shows but not before, windows x64

I would suspect your AV software first although Comodo IS is unfamiliar to me so its just a guess having seen similar problems with AVG and Kaspersky IS until bug fixes arrived. If you're feeling brave, disable it and reboot.

Other than that, I've seen issues with plugged in USB devices, so try unplugging everything apart from the mouse and reboot.

Hello, I'm going to try and explain this problem I'm having in detail. I do know quite a bit about computers, so for anyone with an answer, feel free to reply in "intermediate" if you will, computer talk. So, one day everything was fine, I was talking with a friend on skype and then "BAM", the screen goes blank and I'm left with nothing. I noticed that the computer might have just restarted itself, so I boot it back up, and unfortunately, it takes me to this repair windows 7 page. Of course, as skimpy as Microsoft is, it can't recognize the problem and advices that I shut down. This also, does nothing. So there are some more options that I try including System Restore, which got pissy and didn't end up working. Something like - Cannot restore windows to an earlier date, please try a different time slot. Anyway, I really need a way to fix it, I'll list my computer's specs below and I had a ton of important stuff on it, so losing it would be quite disappointing. I appreciate anyone who had time to read over my oversized post, and has a reply in mind.

Basic Specs [Didn't want to go into detail]:
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE
RAM: 8 GB Patriot Sector 5 DDR3 1333MHz
GPU: Nvidia GeForce 470
Motherboard: Asus (I forget the model)
Power Supply: Corsair 750W

Lets share a simple but working, reliable and awesome tip, that will let you boot directly into Windows 8 RP Desktop directly, without using 3rd party tool or using any script.

1. Move the Desktop Tile and place it in the top left corner of the Metro Start Screen, just below the Start text.

2. Reboot your Windows 8 and you will see the login screen. As usual, type in your local account or Windows Live account password. Just enter the password, don?t press the Next arrow or Enter key here.

3. Now press AND hold down the Enter key. In a few seconds, you will see your Windows 8 desktop appear Thus will have skipped Metro Start Screen smartly!

Try and check it yourself

Nice find, works when I tested it.

Although the start screen doesn't bother me at all, this will be useful for those that don't want to see the metro screen when they startup.

So brand new x240, got it monday.   i dont think this is isolated to this particular x240 but i seem to have these issues on all my lenovo x/t-series.   Saw it on x200/201/220/230 and now x240 Basically I get these machine, build a reference image which is Windows 7 Pro, Windows update + Lenovo system update Aps loaded-Symantec AV-Malwarebytes-Office 2010-MySQL ODBC driver I would say the last 5 boot up, windows boots all the way to desktop, than it hour glass if you move the cursor towards the bottom task bar.   Desktop is clickable but nothing else.  Control-Alt-Delete does not bring up anything and it would hourglass for hours if i left the machine to test.     So far my only way out to to hold the power button down.   I thought this might be an issue with the restore media that I usually use but this is basically a new machine and windows is already acting weird.   Any suggestions on where to look ?  going to parse the logs on safe mode..   Any suggestions or ideas will be great..
