Toshiba Satellite C655D-S5303 running Windows 7 Home Premium. Unknown anti-virus programs, never seen this thing running.
Infinite Windows boot splash screen, eventual Startup Repair screen.
Problem Signature 1: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 2: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 3: unknown
Problem Signature 4: 21200300
Problem Signature 5: AutoFailOver
Problem Signature 6: 4
Problem Signature 7: Corrupt Registry
Locale ID: 1033
I am unable to boot to Safe Mode in any flavor. Safe Mode w/ Command Prompt hangs loading drivers at ClassPNP.sys, gives an eventual BSOD, but shut itself down before I could write anything down from it.
Previous Repair Attempts:
1)I have tried replacing the registry files with the ones dated five months prior in the system32\config\Regback folder. No change.
2) I have tried loading Win7 with bootlogging. Ntbtlog.txt file was never created.
3)Successfully made a Repair Disk using my Win7 64bit desktop. Absolutely useless for me. Does the exact same thing I can do now: access Startup Repair, and a command line.
A) Make a bootable USB key to allow running of streamlined AV of some sort, along with Spybot and other utilities. Also, compare current registry files against backups.
Repair/Replace current corrupt registry.
C) Load USB hard drive to archive user data, clean USB drive. Restore laptop to factory default.
I cannot veiw any text files or logs, because the command line that is run from Startup Repair does not have EDIT. I have no way of importing one, because this bleeping laptop has no floppy drive! I am stuck as of now. I have no idea how to complete any of the three goals given the current state of the laptop. I can't crack it open, as it is still under warranty I am told. Any ideas?
