Hi everyone

To start off, my laptop is quite outdated, although I have upgraded to Windows 7. However I noticed that it's been running pretty slow lately and I occasionally got the blue screen of death. Yesterday, I tried to restart the system, however it showed this "Windows is loading files" screen and went to Startup Repair to scan, and when I clicked Finish, it would shut down and repeat the same process over and over again. I couldn't get into Safe Mode either since it would bring me back to the same screen as I mentioned above. Below are the problem details:

Problem Signature:
Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline
Problem Signature 1: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 2: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Signature 3: unknown
Problem Signature 4: 45
Problem Signature 5: AutoFailover
Problem Signature 6: 1
Problem Signature 7: BadDisk
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033

So I'm wondering if there are any ways I could get the Windows to boot again, or at least get into safe mode so that I can recover some of my data and files. Thanks very much in advance :]

Good evening. :)

Do you have the ability to burn a file to a disk, and do you have access to a flashdrive that you can use to transfer files from the sick PC?

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Yup, my laptop has flashdrive slots, as for disk drive, I think it's not working properly at the moment.

Good evening. :)

Do you know anybody that can burn a disk for you? It may be possible to carry out the process booting from a flashdrive, but not all PCs play nicely with this option so a disk is more reliable.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.

Good evening. :)

Download lupu-525.iso from here and save it to the Desktop. It's a 128 Mb file, so it will take some minutes to download.

You then need to burn the .iso file to disk. My personal choice is InfraRecorder, available here, which is a free, GPL version 3, solution.

  • Run the program and select the Write Image option in the main window.
  • Navigate to the .iso file that you downloaded and double click it.
  • Insert a blank disc into the correct CD drive.
  • Click OK and sit back and relax.
  • The disc will be ejected when the task is complete so, unless you uncheck this option, mind the drawer!

Once you've got the disk, let me know and we'll continue.

So long, and thanks for all the fish.
