I am attempting to restore a friends working laptop, specs are as follows:
HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook PC (Laptop)
CPU: Intel Core Due T6500 2.1 GHz
Vista (unknown if sp are installed)
When the pc boots (normal, safe mode, command prompt) it loads past the green bar loading screen, then screen goes black and I receive error box that states "logon process initialization failure" "view log". Unable to view log due to the inability to login through various attempts. I have tried:
F8 to repair windows, run startup recovery...repaired errors still unable to login.
From same section, opened command prompt and performed chkdsk c: /r
0 kb in bad sectors
4096 kb occupied by the log files
Failed to transfew logged messages to the event log with status 50.
F8 boot in safe mood, safe mood with networking, safe mode command prompt, Last known good configuration, all receive error box.
I am curious to know is there a fix for this or is the fix to attempt to reinstall or go to a restore point? I found another forum that gave instructions to use a Live Ubuntu cd to save the data. Idk what kind or how much data is on the laptop or if there are any restore points set at all. Any and all help and advice is much appreciated, thanks.
