Hi,

 

I have a black screen and it can't start Vista Business after Bios finnished and before the 'Microsoft Corporation' bar at bottom is blinking, so that I need to manually shut down drastically with the power OFF button to reboot my laptop.

My laptop couldn't start properly as the 'Microsoft Corporation' green progress bar at bottom doesn't appear.

This occured only if I 'm working on my laptop during a few hours.

If I'm working for a few minutes and I shut down my laptop, I can start without any troubles.

 

If after after a few hours, I plug the cordon and I start again my laptop, and click on F8 to start on Safe Mode, it's loading the drivers, but stops to crcdisk.sys and it stops the start of Safe Mode.

 

 

The only way I found to boot with no troubles is to 'disable AHCI' from the BIOS, but :

 

If I turn off my laptop and unplug from the wall outlet and I start again after a few hours, the Bios come back with the old settings with 'AHCI enable'.
If I reboot my laptop after a few minutes (unplugged or not unplugged from wall outlet), there is no problem, it can save my last settings, and my laptop can boot with no problems.

 

Maybe the bios can't change to 'disable AHCI' because on my registry I have the following settings :

 

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\

 

iastor    '0'

iastorV '4'

msahci  '0'

pciide    '0'

 

Which value do I need to change to enable SATA/IDE ?

 

 

What I did :

 

I ran SFC and CHKDSK, a 'Repair my Computer' with the Bootable Vista Cd, Memtest, check my HDD with HDDRegenerator.

 

Thanks in advance

When you make changes in the BIOS are you pressing F10 to save the changes before exiting the BIOS?

 

When possible, please do the following.

 

Please download and install Speccy to provide us with information about your computer.  When  FileHippo opens, click on Download latest version in the upper right pane.
 
When Speccy opens you will see a screen similar to the one below.
 
speccy9_zps2d9cdedc.png
 
Click on File which is outlined in red in the screen above, and then click on Publish Snapshot.
 
The following screen will appear, click on Yes.
 
speccy7_zpsfa02105f.png
 
The following screen will appear, click on Copy to Clipboard.

In your next post right click inside the Reply to Topic box, then click on Paste.  This will load a link to the Speccy log.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I explained to you after your first PM to me that I do not address topics via PMs.  You have persisted is contacting me again twice via PMs regarding this topic.  You have refused to post the Speccy snapshot because you believe it contains personal information and sent it to me.

 

Your hdd is failing.

I sent you the speccy link by PM for private reasons that you don't seems to understand.

 

Then, I contacted you to tell you the reasons about why I don't want post this link here, but nothing more, no details about my issue.

 

HDD failing ? I made a scan and repailr with HDD Regenerator and it didn't find anything wrong. Also, I made the Diagnostic Tool for hardware from the site of the manufacturer with no errors at all. In amount, 4 hours of HDD diagnostic with no errors. And your Speccy program, will find in less than 2 minutes that my HDD is failing. I can't believe it, sorry. I'm writing from this failing HDD right now.

PS: If I get an error, it's because I'm on a shadow Mode with Shadow Defender under my Admin account. 

      With the first speccy link, I was under my user account and running Speccy as Admin and under shadow mode with SD.  This can explain the error, probably. As I told you, I dislike this Speccy program, that's the reason I ran in a shadow mode. If you want more details about my Hardware I can use Hwinfo32 or another program.

Did you ruh a valid hard drive diagnostic...to test the funtional status of the drive?  That should be conclusive.
