Hi I have a boot problem at first i thought it was the old drive going so I replaced the drive reinstalled the os and everything worked ok that day.

Nest day went to boot new drive and exactly the same as the old drive happened

File:\Boot\BCD

The boot configuration data for your pc is missing or corrupt.

 

Here is what I have tried so far.

Use instillation disk went into the part at the start with cmd prompt and typed

 bootrec /fixmbr

bootrec /fixboot

 

attrib -r -s -h c\:boot\bcd

 

del c:\boot\bcd

 

bcdboot c:\windows

 

bootrec /rebuildbcd

 

None of this works.

I can get into the operating system and once in it's ok and the even weirder thing once it is open it will reboot just fine shutdown and then turn back on just fine but leave it over night off and the next day it's got problems.

 

It couldn't be the cmos could it?

 

Thank you for any help in advance.

Hemmm seems like you know what your doing and you did do the full reinstall topic as i would have.

 

Yes you might as well put the bios back to default just for the hell of it or even better disable anything you can in their and put the bios in to safe mode if you know what i mean.

 

Way you explain things to me sets off alarm bells, ill assume you've done the rounds anti-virus wise if not its about that time.

Just remember that doesn't mean their isn't anything thier.

 

Things i would look in to is hdd is it bad ?

Remember some of the tools are not for SSD if that's what your using.

Is it a virus, we can look in to that the hard way if you want but id do other tests first before going their, we can hunt for code the hard way if we really need to.

 

Is the system stable ? id do burn in testing on the system, memory tests etc

 

Is the system clean ? time for a rebuild and cleaning if you haven't done it in a wile.

 

is the system broken on some level ? burn in testing with probably show something if this is the case.

 

Btw plz list your full hardware stats and software setup, the more info you can give the better.

Ok so I will do a memory test and clean and rebuild the pc.

I know the new hDD is ok I ran tests on it when I got it and compared it to one I now is faulty so all good there.

I'll post in the malware section to and have someone take  another look.

Cheers SHadow

I recommend to open "System Configuration" and then the table "Boot". There must be something similar

Windows 10 (C:Windows) : Current OS; Default OS and nothing more. 

Timeout should be at least 30 seconds.

NP cowz but like i said checking for unknown virus would be the last thing id do,and you didn't say if you did the rounds with AV software and the like but whatever gl hf in the other part of the forum, if they can't find anything ill still be around.

I did do a battery of tests but only FP came up nothing I can see I am getting a second opinion in a malware forum and having them take a look.

I have also taken the pc to bits and cleaned it like you said and am atm running a battery of memory tests.

 

Not sure what a burning in test is I will google that and do that to and get back to you.

Hope you have a good christmas  :bananas:  :bounce:  :guitar:  :clapping:  :hysterical:

and thank you for your kind help it's appreciated

Watch your temps and volts when you do testing, if anything gets out of wack stop test.

 

A speccy screen shot could be usefull too

It seems to be fixed after taking it to bits with a thorough clean and then rebuilt had to give it a few days to be sure before posting. 

Thanks  Shadow :)

All good, my self i smoke a pack a day arond my computer, given time things get gumed up, i clean the inside of my pc maybe two times a year and or if it starts to bug.

i see this topic offten on older computers, good clean has a way of fixing things sometimes and douse no harm.
