Get Blue Screen Then Computer Restarts

     So I was in a pretty big hurry, and had to turn off my computer. Unfortunately, Windows decided that it needed to install updates (Which i have yet to disable the automatic installing of). Because I was in a hurry, I decided to ignore the warning and shut off my computer while it was updating. Now, whenever I start the computer, the "starting Windows" screen is interrupted by a blue screen for about 1/2 a second, and then the computer restarts, and the cycle begins again. I tried to run the system recovery thing twice (2 different restore points), but neither worked, and the automatic system repair function didn't work either.

 

     I'm stuck, and couldn't find an answer for this anywhere. I'd really like to avoid messing with the actual hardware (that's the only solution to a problem that was similar to this one).

 

Thanks in advance,

Rinzler64

You mean the Windows installation disk, right?

 

Would that repair it, or reinstall windows on it?

It would have to be the installation disc, and I would have to assume that they are suggesting running a Repair Installation, also known as a inplace upgrade.  

 

Basically what this does is allow you to run the Startup Repair.  This is useful when you can't boot into Windows, but from what you have posted this doesn't appear to be the case.

 

By interrupting the updates you may have damaged files.  I would suggest running sfc /scannow.

 

 The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.

 
Click on the Sart orb and then type cmd in the Search programs and files box.
 
In the pane above the search box Programs will appear with cmd below it, right click on cmd and choose Run as administrator.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.
 
A page similar to the one below will open.
 
commandprompt_zps212bc71a.png
 
Type in sfc /scannow and then press Enter to start the scan.  Please notice the space between sfc and the /scannow.
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems in the first portion of the scan it should stop, to be sure that the scan has stopped wait five minutes, then type in exit and press Enter to stop the scan.
 
When the scan is finished please post the log of this scan.
 
To find sfc /scannow log, type cmd in the Search programs and files box, 
 
cmd will appear above the search box under Apps., right click on it and choose Run as administrator, this will open the Elevated Command Prompt.  This will look simlare to the image below.
 
elevatedcommandpromptw7_zpseba8c499.png
 
copy and paste the following in the Search programs and files box, then press Enter.  
 
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt
 
This will place a new icon on the desktop titled sfcdetails.  Click on this to open the log, copy it and paste it in your topic.  

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

The only way for me to open command prompt to do it through the system repair menu. When I attempt to run sfc /scannow, it gives me

"Beginning system scan. This process will take some time.

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

Is there a way around this, or to force it?

Thanks,

Try the following things in Safe Mode (upon start up).

 

- (indeed) run SFC /Scannow ( in Safe Mode).

- Run "Windows Repair All In One" with (at least) the box "Repair Windows Update" ticked. I know this program resets a number of things in the "Windows Update" sub-system. Give it try.

- Did you make a System Restore Point in the (near) past ? If so, then try to restore the system to that previous point.

enter:

dism.exe /image:C:\ /cleanup-image /revertpendingactions

 

After that, reboot the machine then run SFC /scannow command.

entered that command, and restarted.

 

sfc /scannow didn't work, and now neither does the dism.exe command.

PS  Some times you may have to run this 3 times before it repairs your PC!!

Hello! It's always good to have this laying around, even if it can't repair your issue.

- You're really having a problem when you can't get into Safe Mode.

- Download a free download manager. It allows you to download programs in the background while you're surfing the internet.
