Boot Takes Minutes, Will Boot In Safe Mode


When i booted up this arvo, the computer took 15 minutes to get to the log in screen. Upon clicking the profile image, i had to wait another 5 minutes of unresponsiveness for even the desktop background to display. Rebooted 3-4 times, still happened, booted in safe mode, (which is how i'm writing this) and initially thought it was msmpeng.exe that was causing me issues, so i removed mse once i finally managed to get it going in normal mode. I thought the problem was fixed when i rebooted, and i had about 4-5 minutes of normal speeds before it slowed right down and became unresponsive.

When the computer is running, the actual computer itself sounds fine (hard disk is chattering away) but when going slow and unresponsive it only makes noises every 1-2 seconds, if that makes any sense, as if it's under a really heavy load. Hard to tell because i cant open anything. Ran a system restore, didn't do anything. I need help soon! I suspect a driver issue, but i'm just speculating.

Cannot Boot Normally Or In Safe Mode

My laptop is only a few months old, but a while ago, the windows 7 home premium operating system stopped working. I can't get it to start up with windows at all, and i've had to resort to using the very limited asus operating system that came with it. I can't access files or anything else on the hard drive. Help here's the error message.

Unable To Boot Even In Safe Mode

I have windows xp home edition. My pc was working ok last night although running extremely slow. Tried to start today but it gave me the following message: "a problem has been detected and window has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmenting, backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration, check for any updated drivers. Run chkdsk /f to check hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer. If you need to use safe mode, restart your computer, press f8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

Technical information:

Stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x81b4ede8, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000). "

I cannot start in any of the safe modes, as it keeps returning to the blue screen!

Cannot Boot In Safe Mode Or Command Prompt

Not sure what the problem is but every mode i try booting in gets a black screen and the brightness of the screen is dimmer however i do get a mouse pointer that i can move around freely. I have an assumption that its a video error and regucure probably messed something up while i was trying to repair broken registry. Currently in kuwait by the way and both safe mode and command prompt is the same way the only thing i seem to be able to use is the f2 setup screen which does not seem to help at all either resetted the settings to default but no progress. Wish i could find a way to fix this without taking cash from my pocket or sending it to a place to reset it to factory settings.

Cannot Boot Safe

New machine, gigabyte ga-ma785gm-us2h, amd athalon ii x4 630, 4gb corsair, 1tb wd, samsung optical. Vanilla install of win 64 to new machine. All was well, had a directx install, and "critical updates" from msft. All fail when trying to do system restore to those points and cannot boot to safe mode. Have tried booting to dvd first, but all attempts by the os to fix itself say it was unable to do so. Send help.

Ie8, Office, Live Takes Several Minutes To Start

I'm running windows 7 64-bit with 12gb of ram on an i7 quad core. Whenever i start ie8 32-bit it takes several minutes before it will display a web page, most of that time it says waiting for about:blank in the status bar. I've searched the web and none of the solutions i've found work. I've noticed that office communicator and live meeting both take upwards of 5 to 6 minutes to start. I also use firefox and it starts on the same web pages as ie8 but only takes a second or two.

Since most of my work is using tools like share-point actually using firefox as my primary browser is not an option since it is not compatible with sharepoint. I've disabled all antivirus and even changed antivirus applications at one point so i don't think antivirus is an issue.

Not Able To Boot Into Normal Mode

I have the exact same laptop and got the exact same error message. It happened after going through windows update and when i rebooted for the system to finish updating, i have this same error message come up. It happen several months ago and everex is no longer around! I can't boot into last know good config, or into safe mode, or to the standard desktop. I have been able to get to a command prompt using a bootable disk - which i thought had the iso image for vista x-32 to assist me with reinstalling software.

Cannot Boot In Any Mode, Even With Dvd

Yesterday my computer froze during the middle of a document. When trying to reboot, it freezes on the "starting windows" screen. I tried booting into safe mode, and it will stop at "classpnp.sys" and not go any further. I was going to try the "repair windows" by booting from the installation dvd, but when i try to boot from the dvd, it will display the "windows is loading files" bar, and then go to straight to the same "starting windows" animation screen and will stay there indefinitely.

I can't figure out any other way to get into any windows program at all, the only option i even have is to either enter the bios menu or "boot from cd or dvd" (which doesn't work, either) i have windows 7 professional 32 bit on a gateway 9310xl computer. I haven't added any new software or drivers for a while.

Dual Boot Boot Problem After Resizing Win 7

Boot problem on dual boot after resizing windows 7 (32bit) switched from drive w: to drive g: i have a dual boot system that boots into win 7 (64) (c:drive) or win 7 (32) (w:drive). I needed to increase the size of win7 (64) drive and in order to do so i needed to move the win 7 (32) partition. Now i can still boot into win 7 (64) with no problem but when i boot into win 7 (32) it windows states that it is not a genuine copy and it is actually on drive "g:"! Anyway to change it back to "w:" because i believe this is the problem.

Dual Boot - Move Boot Image To Second Drive

I have a problem with two different drives both running win7, one 32 the other drive64, on a dual boot system. I want to pull the win32 drive, but it also has my boot information for the win64 drive. When removed it will not boot. I have been working on this for 5-6 weeks. I want to remove the win7/32 and put the boot image of win7/64 on the second drive.

I booted from the win764 install dvd, and went to there pair your computer. The placethat displays the operating systems installed, none will show. I have tried bootsect from the command prompt. It seems to work, but tells me no partition on the second drive. Or on another attribute used, it can not find the path to the drive. I have tried rebuild bcd, fixmbr, etc.

Monitor Goes Directly In Sleep Mode On Boot Up

I bought a computer last week online (had it built from a popular site that i've used before). The computer worked fine for a few days. Last night, in the middle of playing a game, it crashed or something. Upon reboot, the monitor went directly into power saving mode. I thought my old monitor was t he problem, so i bought a new monitor. Same thing. When i turn it on, the monitor goes right into sleep mode. Maybe once out of every 20 or 30 reboots it will actually boot up, or i can spam f8 and get it to boot into safe mode.

I read online to turn off all the power-saving options. So i did (and i also installed the new monitor driver from the disc while i was able to do so). Rebooted. Same  problem. Every time i boot up, all i see is a black screen and the monitor goes right into power saving mode, hitting f8 does nothing, no normal boot screens even appear. The boot up "beep" never sounds off, and the fan seems to die down very quickly as well. Whats really confusing is that it worked fine for like 5 days. Then poof there's some kind of conflict.

Maybe the onboard video card is turned on in the bios or something? I don't know cause i cant even get that far. Booting up gets me to a sleeping monitor every time. Anyone got any ideas? These are the exact parts i am working with: amd phenom ii x2 550 dual-core cpu4gb ddr2-800 pc6400ati radeon hd5750 1gb single cardasus m4a785-m amd785g hybrid crossfire chipset power supply 600 watt windows 7 (64 bit)

Dual Boot - 1 Xp And 3 Win 7 Boot Choices

I've installed win 7 on my d drive, with win xp still on c, with the idea of having a dual boot system. Due to installation problems, i now show the xp boot choice, and 3 win 7 boot choices, with only the most recent valid. How do i purge the b. Boot.ini doesn't appear to be relevant. Win 7 utility boot rewriter program to re-point boot to ntldr will wipe out all pointers to win 7 for booting, but comes back with an extra win 7 pointer, the next time i load win 7.

New Sata Boot Drive Wont Boot

I have a new 2t sata drive (seagate). It took about 5 days of research to finally get my computer to see it. I used seagate's disk wizard to clone my older drive (ide). The sata drive was supposed to become the c: drive. Disk management does label it as the c drive but in "computer" it sees it as f:i disconnected my older drive and when i booted up the bios kept looking for the ide drive. Although the motherboard has sata built in, there seems to be no way to tell the bios that i want the sata drive to be the primary boot drive.

Also with the original drive disconnected i get a "ntldr not found. Press control-alt-delete to restart. "I believe mybios is the problem. I have flashed it with the newest bios i could find, (dates from 2005) but no sata adjustments in the bios. How can i make the bios know that i want the sata drive to be the primary boot drive?

Or is there a way to trick the bios into thinking that it is an ide drive? As it is, the computer is recognizing the sata drive as a scsi drive. I read somewhere that this is not a problem. In summary, i want my system to boot from the sata drive. I would like to reformat the original drive.

Boot Problem - No Boot Device Found

Each time i start up the system the boot file cannot be found. I select the "repair start up" option and it completes it successfully with following detail: root cause found: the partition table does not have a valid system partition. Repair action: partition table repair.completion successfully. After this the system will start up. As mentioned, i have to do this at every start up, so i'm wondering why this partition table disappears when i shut down the desktop. I should mention that this problem started at the time i downloaded and installed the true image backup software.

The installation could not complete and one possible solution to the problem was to stop the antivirus program. At that moment i noticed that the avast antivirus was hanging and i was not able to kill the process. So i restarted the system, using f8 to get the safe start option so that i was able to uninstall the antivirus program. I then tried to install another antivirus application and when installation was almost finished got the message that it was unable to complete installation. I tried to install another backup solution (paragon), but also this one failed. On the other hand, i was able to install the firefox browser.

Dual Boot - Can't See Win 7 Drive After Removing Other Boot Drive

My mobo (msi p7n diamond 780i sli / 570i sli) has a sata raid controller providing 6 sata interfaces
These are organized thus.

Sata 1 - [partition 1 - windows xp] [partition 2 - windows 7 beta (64bit)]
Sata 2 - ocz vertex - windows 7 home (64bit) retail version
Sata 3 - mirror a
Sata 4 - mirror b
Sata 5 - mirror a
Sata 6 - mirror b

The system was originally running xp on sata 1. I added a partition to sata 1 and installed windows 7 beta some weeks ago. The system dual booted to xp or win 7 beta fine. I then added the ocz vertex drive and installed the win 7 retail version, and i am able to dual boot to all three systems just fine.

However - i really want to do away with the xp and win 7 beta partitions and just run with the ocz drive. However if i disconnect the drive from sata 1 the system will not boot up. Can't find ntldr or bootmgr or something similar. I have changed the boot sequence in the bios to point at just the ocz drive - but it just won't boot from it.

Windows 7 Freeze In Normal Mode, Safe Mode Works Fine

I am out of ideas. Three days ago my computer started freezing within a few minutes after startup. Freezes with no mouse movement and no keyboard. Must shutdown using the power button. Happens every time i start in normal mode. Safe mode works fine. I have done quite a bit of reading and tried a number of things, so far to no avail. Quite a few error codes present, here are some:

Winlog 6000
Service 7001
Distrib 10005
Service 7026
Event log 1101
Kernel 41
Browser 8032
Load perf 3011
Load perf 3012

I have tried restoring, turning off all non-microsoft services, disabling sound, updating video driver, memory test, adjusting bios per g skill tech forum. All hardware showing normal operation in device manager.

I can't find the minidump .dmp folder in c:/windows. The only location i find for .dmp files is in the watchdog folder, and there are quite a few in there. Let me know if i need to upload them.

My computer is a couple of months old and has been working flawlessly until this happened with one exception. (I have been getting occasional monitor blanking for a couple of seconds followed by a notification that the graphics driver has stopped responding and was successfully restored. )

Unable To Do Safe Mode

First of all. There's no virus in my computer so this is not caused by virus. Then the problem is = when i try to go to safe mode. After load all the driver, then my computer restart, so i start windows normally then i go to msconfig.exe, then i checked the 'safe boot' . Then i restart my pc, and automatically go to safe mode, unfortunately when loading all the drivers, my computer restart again. Because off i checked 'safe boot' in msconfig so when the computer starts, it will always chosse safe mode. So my computer is restart over and over again. How to uncheck the safe boot in msconfig without get into windows. ? How to start windows normally. ? How to resolve this problem without re-install my computer. ? Now i'm online from linux boot cd.

Entered password –got welcome screen. Same message: entry point not found. Clicked ok – welcome screen again then nothing – same black screen! Also, on my black screen is says safe mode in all 4 corners and build 7600.
 
Submitting again - hopefully without all the "junk" on the post - what am i doing wrong?

Freezes And Works In Safe Mode Only

Acer aspire 7740-6656 laptop less than 6 mos old windows 7 home premium 64 bit intel core i5-430m processor w/4 gb ddr3 1066 sd ram, & hd on-board graphics problem: currently only run windows in safe mode:when run in normal mode windows runs for 5 min, then freezes which prevents anything from working - keyboard, touchpad, even the screen freezes. For instance if windows is in the process of upgrading as it was today the install window freezes. All that can be done is to power off machine and reboot into safe mode - note: safe mode networking does not work either.

Have tried system restore in safe mode with success of taking system back but it does not resolve the problem. Acer ts is no help, they are useless and all windows diagnostics show no hardware or software issues when run in safe mode. Have done several re-installs of the os, drivers, etc. From the hidden partition on the hard drive with no resolution and there are no error messages generated when the system locks up.

Can't Get To Safe Mode - Repair Loop

I have a win 7 64 bit pc that's i'm having an odd issue with. The system will boot and load windows normally, but i can't get to safe mode. When i hit f8, i get the options for safe mode and repair, etc. , But if i try safe mode it loads some stuff, then just stops and a get a black screen with "safe mode" in all 4 corners, a mouse, but nothing else. When i hit "repair" it gets stuck in a repair loop. I've read the tutorial on how to get out of that loop, but was wondering if that's what i should try or if there's some other problem. I'll need to ask a question later about why i need to get to "safe mode" but for now, anyone help on this issue?

Win 7 Only Running Programs In Safe Mode

I got my computer about a week ago. Things seemed to work fine the first start-up, and then i had to restart in order to install some updates. After the restart (which took somewhere around 4 hours) i found that several programs will not open, i.e. Internet explorer, media player, norton antivirus. I attempt to open them, the 'loading' icon appears next to the cursor, and then nothing happens. All of these programs came pre-installed, as this is a new computer.

However, these programs do run in safe mode. Prior to the restart, i had installed network magic 5. 1 and attempted to install webroot antivirus. I have since uninstalled these programs, but the problem continues. I have made no other changes to the computer. I've also tried backing up the computer but this has not worked either. I'm afraid i know very little about computers and have no idea what i should do. Any advice would be very welcome.

Activate Administrator Account In Safe Mode

How to activate administrator account in safe mode? I have two accounts "user1" ("user" level and i know this password) and "admin1" ("admin" level)accounts. Built-in administrator account has a password (i know this password) but it's not active. I changed my admin1 password and now i can't remember it. I have tried to use built-in administrator account by "safe mode" but it doesn't shows up in the list of users (to log in safe mode)? I logged in as a user1 account with cmd prompt. I typed "net user administrator /active:yes" but os says "system error 5 has occurred. Access is denied". How i can use built-in administrator account (since i know that password) when it's not activated?

Win 7 Wont Start, Even In Safe Mode

When i went to turn on my gateway laptop this morning, it wouldn't start up. I have windows 7, and have been running on it fine for about four months. When i turn the computer on, it shows the "windows is starting" screen, but then it goes to a black screen with just the cursor, sits there for a few minutes, then restarts again. Then i tried running in safe mode (going to the boot menu, selecting "safe mode") and ran into the same problem: it would go to a black screen with the cursor, hold there, then restart again. Is this a virus? Is there any way for me to get to system restore from the boot menu? I can still access the bios set-up, but i don't know what i can do from there to help.

Pc Only Starts Up In Safe Mode After Running Scan Disk

I was running scan disk to attempt to speed up my son's computer. I also got rid of some files that he had on it. The files were for his old apple ipod and he doesn't use it anymore. So i figured it couldn't hurt anything. The file were "safari", "bonjour", and some other apple files. I also removed a program for my old samsung camera. I tried to do a system restore from before i removed these programs/drivers. But that didn't work even though it said the restore was successful. I am at a lose of what to do and school is just starting. I hope he don't need it soon. Can anyone help? Thank you for you time and any help you may be able to give.

Netbook Cannot Start - Safe Mode Stops At Classpnp.sys

My msi u130 windows 7 starter does not start, merely gets to the loading screen (where you see the green flash going above the words microsoft corporation). Launch startup repair shows a white bar and the message windows is loading files before going to the loading screen. Launching os recovery does the same as above. Using safe mode hangs at 'classpnp.sys'. A variety of other safe mode options stop at 'classpnp.sys'.

I downloaded the windows 7 recovery disk iso and put it on a usb. After some problem with "ntldr is missing press ctrl alt del to restart" downloaded bootsect.exe, used that, then got a message windows is loading files and a white loading which, which, when complete, put me back tot he normal windows loading screen, zero other activity. Have tried to boot to a linux system off a usb to replace the classpnp.sys file with one i found on this xp machine, but can't get linux to start off the usb. So any ideas? With my main laptop with my wife i desperately need this netbook working, not least because it has office 2007 on it.
