Lenovo X61s

Problem description: When I try to boot up the computer, it only gives me two options: run Lenovo Rescue and Recovery, or Start Windows Normally. When I try to Start Windows Normally, it BSODs and fails to boot every single time (I have tried many times) with the error code 0x000024 on a blue screen which shows for a few seconds before shuting down. I also cannot boot through Lenovo Rescue and Recovery. When i try to use the auto repair option it keeps saying that" it is unable to repair automatically, and when i Start Windows Normally, it fails and gives me a BSOD. I need to have it okay because am using it to study for an important exam.

STOP 24 errors generally may indicate a damaged NTFS file system or a bad hard drive, IMO.

 

Appears to me that system dates back to 2007...either situation could have developed, IMO.

 

Without a Windows 7 Repair Disk, there's not a lot that I can suggest, other than running a diagnostic on the hard drive/system..

 

Lenovo Bootable Diagnostics

 

One of the more knowledgeable members may have better suggestions.

Can you boot into Safe Mode?


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

How are you able to open the Elevated Command Prompt?

 

If you are able to open the Command Prompt, please do the following.

 

 
Please run chkdsk /r
 
Chkdsk /r checks for bad sectors on the HDD and recovers any readable information.
 
Attention:  If this is a SSD do not run the /r switch, instead run chkdsk /f.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png, then type in cmd in the Search programs and files box.  When cmd is seen in Programs above the Search box right click on it, then click on Run as administrator.
 
You will see a screen similar to the one below.
 
Screenshot2.jpg
 
You will receive the message "CHKDSK cannot be run because it is in use by another process.  Would you like to schedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?  <Y/N>".
 
Type in Y and press Enter.
 
Restart your computer to start the scan.
 
This will take a while to run, please be patient and allow it to complete the scan.
 
When the scan is finished please download and run ListChkdskResult.
 
This will open Notepad with the results of the chkdsk scan.  Please copy and then paste this log in your topic.
 
 

 
Please run System File Checker
 
The sfc /scannow command scans all protected system files and replaces corrupted and incorrect versions with correct Microsoft versions.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png 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 select Run as administrator.
 
If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, enter the password, or click Allow.
 
This will open the Elevated Command Prompt, it will look similar to the image below.
 
command%20prompt%20w8_zpsxjmewau9.png
 
Copy and paste sfc /scannow in the command prompt, then press Enter to start the scan.  
 
If the scan finds no integrity  problems the scan will stop.  Type in exit, then press Enter to stop the scan.
 
When the scan is finished and if intergrity issues are found, please do the following.
 
Click on the Start orb rsz_1rsz_1rsz_start_orb_zpshjewtibd.png then copy and paste the following in the Search programs and files box.
 
findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >"%userprofile%\Desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
 
This will place a new icon on the desktop titled sfcdetails.  Double click on this icon to  
the CBS log, copy and paste the log in your topic.
 
If this fails to place the icon on your desktop run the command from the Command Prompt.  Use the instructions I provided at the start of this tutorial.
 
This log may be very large, if you have problems posting it try breaking it into smaller parts.  When you copy these parts you will highlight the section you are going to copy.  If you leave that section highlighted it will give you a quick reference for where you left off.
