My computer recently started acting strange I noticed weird drive issues, so I went to CMD prompt to run some diagnostics and this error came up

 

C:\Users\USER>bootcfg

What's the OS of this system? If you're using the BOOTCFG command, then I suspect a pre-Vista or Vista system, but I just want to be sure.

 

Are you running the command from Safe Mode, Normal Mode, or the Recovery Environment/Console?

 

We need more information about your system than what you've provided. Hence, please follow these BSOD posting instructions and attach the requested files by replying to this topic. You may skip the part of step three where it instructs you to create a new topic, since you already have a topic here. There's no need to create another topic. :wink:

Thank you.

Regards,
bwv848

Hi

 

I apologize if I did not follow protocol, I just freaked out when I became aware of the issues. I can usually fix these things and I would prefer if at all possible to NOT factory restore, it;s my husbands computer and he doesn't do well with changes. Here is the Speccy file you requested:

 

http://speccy.piriform.com/results/KxT3W5hgx4ZIIuwRhYUV3tcand

 

I have  also attached the SysnativeFileCollectionApp.zipfile.

 

I am still not sure what is wrong with my computer but I know enough to know that its acting squirelly. 

 

I will run the other diagnostics yo requested,  Shoud I send them over right away or wait to hear back from you.  

 

 

Any help you can give me is great;y appreciated.  Thank you so much!

 

Leann

Sorry, but the Sysnative output file did not make the trip, neither did the Speccy report. Please try again.
