Here is what happened

1. I plugged the wire in my laptop(ASUS K40IJ) for some electricity

2. Without pressing the power button it suddenly turned on! Something was wrong at that time and it asked me to do something about the CMOS or something and I have noticed the time and date were jammed. But I proceeded.

3. I loaded my Windows 7 but there were problems regarding my dropbox(it had problems connecting to the website), on my google chrome( it could not load images). So I have decided to restart and see if it would fix the problem.

4. When I tried to run it again the system crashes(I couldnt even read the error) and restarts whenever I am in the "Starting Windows" screen.

5. I have tried almost all of the repairs offered by the OS except the command prompt part since I do not know how to use it.

6. Now I am stuck using my UBUNTU 11.10. It is working perfectly well until I saw that my chromium here was affected (It is not recording history but other than that it is working perfectly well)

What is the problem? Is it Hardware or Software? Help PLEASE!

What was the exact CMOS error in Step 2

Does it pass POST on the second reboot

Try running "System Restore" on the recovery console

I didnt get the exact error because I was too nervous and forgot to take down notes.

But I remember it asked me to load the default settings by pressing F1 and pressing F2 to set the new date and time.

What I did first was press the F2 and every thing in number 3 follows

and before number 4, the same error came out about the CMOS, so I decided I should set the date and time again.

And so number 4 happened...

AS said in number 5 I have also tried the system restore but it failed...

It asked me to restart and I came back and asked me to type the command again... but then reboot again like there was no pending repair made....

Plus the drive is called X: and not C:

X:is a temporary drive letter assign to repair the system or X is the sources

Try to disable Automatic System Restart do the following

To begin, turn on or restart your PC.

Just before the Windows Vista splash screen shown above appears, or just before your PC automatically restarts, press the F8 key to enter Advanced Boot Options.

Important: You do not need to be able to access Windows Vista normally to disable the automatic restart on system failure option via the Advanced Boot Options menu.

Reference: http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheproblem/ss/disable-auto-restart-vista.htm

I need it to error out

What is on the Hard drive currently you said Ubuntu via CD You can back up your data to a thumb drive or external HDD on unubtu and using the Recovery partition to reinstall Windows 7

What I exactly am doing now is booting windows 7 then pressing F8 then the Advanced Boot Options will pop out of the screen and I choose repair

I have typed sfc /scannow and the command prompt asks me to restart in order for me to perform the pending scan fix.

But after I restart and input the command, i comes back to asking me to restart again... no sfc /scannow is being performed...


I have tried the CHKDSK on all of my drives and nothing happened, be it /r or /f....


Back to what you said, are you telling me that right AFTER I select the repair option of windows 7 is that I shoudl press F8 again ?

BTW the error stop is 0x0000007B (0x80786B58, 0xC00000034, 0x00000000, 0x000000000)... I think it has something to do with BIOS? But really I don't know

Thanks for trying to help me out in advance too.

Yes I wanted you to select disable Automatic Restart from system failure on the Advance Boot Options to get it to stop restarting and throw out a error.

it has throw out a error.

This “STOP: 0x0000007B” message shows when there are Boot-Sector Viruses, Device Driver Issues, Hardware Issues and other issues.

this problem may occur in scenarios as following:

· The registry is corrupted.
· A System file is missing or damaged.
· A device driver file is missing or damaged.

I dont believe that Boot-Sector Viruses are in play. The reason you get the CMOS error from a power issue that cause the CMOS to reset, you try all known ways of reseting the bios. Have you try to Load Fail Safe Bios. What we need to do now is figure out how was your SATA drive BIOS set mode before the reset.

There are two options
Switch to AHCI mode or ATA mode in the BIOS

please try AHCI mode first

If these two modes didn't work that means that the Hard Drive controller is corrupt.

Sorry for the broken links they were just reference articles sorry about that

Can you please open the BIOS screen and set your hard drive to ACHI mode.

If you can get to Ubuntu Live CD I would just back up your data and reformat and re install the Windows 7 OS due to registry corruption. That computer had Windows Vista. I am running out of suggestions to give here

Reinstalling is the "Last Known Resort" for techie. Since We have exhausted all of the other options. Re installing would be best to resolve the issue but If you have Ubuntu Live Boot CD back up the following before you reinstall

C:\Users\(username) and anything else you desire to save

you want a clean install


If you have a CD with Windows 7 you can install via disc.

When A computer boots
1. Its power on with soft boot
2. Performs POST (Power on Self Test)
2a. Initial Startup Process
2b. It actives CMOS and BIOS
2 c. Loads the BIOS configuration from CMOS
3. Loads the drivers for Hard drive
4. Finds MBR+Active Boot Partation
5. Operating Systems now takes over and Loads

your problem is 2c, 3. This is not exact list. http://sourcedaddy.com/windows-7/understanding-the-startup-process.html

I think you should replace your CMOS Battery...
