Hello,

I am operating a windows 10 system. It has been stable for the last few months and all of a sudden randomly, it glitches out and will not start windows anymore. I have tried to start up repair, resetting the PC as in reinstalling windows, system restore, scan disk, CHKDSK. None of them seem to work or complete their function. Further, I noticed my C: has now turned into the X:.

The error I get for system restore is 0X80070057.

I've never had this problem happened before, all of my files are still there when I go into command prompt. If you have any other suggestions that I may have missed I would welcome them thank you

Try to check disk again, now I get this error "failed to transfer log messages to the event log with status 50." I have no idea what that cryptic message means.

I wouldn't be running a chkdsk at this point. I would concentrate on getting your personal files off the computer and on to a USB external hard drive then do a complete clean install. 

 

Was the computer pre-installed with Windows 10 or was it an upgrade. If upgrade, what OS?

Upgrade from windows seven. It finally let me enter a password to do a "reset my PC "function in which it reinstall windows but keeps my files.

Will let you know momentarily if that works. Do you have any fathomable reason that this is happening?

Not a clue but it may have resulted from a borked Windows 10 update.

Nope, windows continues to remain an absolute garbage system will have to try a clean install and then switch to a Linux based system.

You should be able to pull the data with a live linux disk. I don't know how much experience with linux you have. For people moving form Windows Mint Cinnamon is a good choice. You can boot the live dvd or USB flash drive to determine how compatible the computer is with Mint. Sometimes a tweak is necessary for some Wifi chipsets.

Ok somehow, and for no real clear reason I am able to lead a disk image from last week...after this restores I will try that.

I've used knoppix Linux to save data before, so hopefullly it doesn't come to that.

Your disc drive could be failing and/or the boot sector is hosed.

I'd backup my user data immediately and then use Seagate's SeaTools to check the drive.

You may want to run Seatools for Windows to check the health of the drive as Brian.
