Working on my inlaws laptop.
Cant boot into desktop .. gets to welcom page.. and little further then blackscreen and error message(s).
WerFault and Explorer - Application Error
"The instruction at ..... referenced memory at. The required data was not placed into memory because of an I/O error status of 0x0000185"
I can not get to desktop to install or run things .. or look at event viewer
Ran Avast Rescue - which found things .. but didnt fix the issue.
Ran Malware Bytes by pulling out the HD from the latop and running it on through another PC using sata to usb cables - again found stuff but didnt fix the issue
Ran Kaspersky Rescue disk - which found a few things - but didnt fix the issue.
Went into safemode yesterday - but when i tried to install any apps like Tdsskiller .. machine went unresponsive.
Ran some built in diagnostics to check hardware a few days ago - but nothing glaring showed up - memory is foggy now .. but i know it didnt come back saying there was an issue with the CPU, cache, ram or HD.
I feel like the OS is messed up .. cant explain why .. it just doesnt feel like hardware. What i dont know is the OS damaged and needs to be repaired .. replace .. or is something nasty in there causing it .. or was something nasty in it for long enough to permanently mess with the OS.
Not being able to get in to do stuff is making this really hard to sort out .. at work i would have pulled the data and re-imaged by now .. but not my laptop to mess with .. must try and fix it for the inlaws .. or else.
Anyhow .. i am willing to try anything .. but keep in mind i can not run software on the latop unless its from boot disk .. or by slaving the hd.
Thanks in advance.
