After restarting my computer to install some Windows updates, Windows will not load. The trouble is this:

1) BSOD

2) Goes to "Windows is loading files"

3) Then " Startup Repair is checking your system"

4) Next "Windows cannot repair this computer automatically"

5) Computer turns off, I turn it on and keep getting the same messages as above.

 

I tryed booting in "Safe Mode" to do a "System Restore" but the computer goes thru the same loop of trouble.

Also tryed to boot up with original Windows 7 OS disc that I have but could not repair the computer this way either.

 

HP Compaq Desktop

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit/SP1

 

Any ideas as to fix this?

You could load your widows DVD, hit repair, let it scan, then when it fails click "advanced recovery options" then click command prompt and then type "sfc /scannow" the cmd usually defaults to X:/ (DVD root drive( so you might wanna switch to C: then run sfc /scannow

Have a question, or just wanna chat? Send me a message. Or add me as a friend.

The BSOD message is not on the monitor long enough for me to get the information that it contains. The screen just flys by in the loop that

I described. Sorry.

To see the BSOD message, please try the steps suggested at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/475157/my-windows-xp-home-edition-wont-start/?p=2896767 .Error messages are always important, since they are the best effort by Windows...to point to what may be the problem.

See http://www.sevenforums.com/bsod-help-support/203795-random-bsods-stop-0x000000f4-0x0000000000000003.html .

 

I would use Memtest86+ to test each RAM module invidivually...then test them in pairs.

 

Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool - http://www.memtest.org/#downiso

 

Memtest86+ Guide-How To's - Overclockers Forums - http://www.overclockers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=409152

 

Testing the RAM is not dependent on Windows, it doesn't matter if the system cannot boot into Windows.

Try re-seating your memory sticks. Pop them out and Pop them back in. 


Thanks

Ran Memtest and the results of a three and one-half hour scan shows no error.

 

Tryed to run sfc /scannow at the command prompt and received the following message:\

 

"There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart Windows and runsfc again"

 

I run sfc again and I get this same message. Any ideas as to how i should proceed to try & fix this??

Did you reboot and try to clear the repair effort?

Please be more specific; How should I clear the repair effort?

 

 

When i ran-  X:\Sources>sfc /scannow /offbootdir=c:\  /offwindir=d:\Windows

I received the following message: "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation"

 

Do I have to fix something in the registry??

I cannot tell you .

 

I see a lot of stumbling around with this situation...and several different approaches taken.

 

The F4 error is usually a hardware error, IMO.  If the RAM is good, my next suspect would be the hard drive.  I would run the diagnostic from the hard drive manufacturer's website (long test, not short).
