Vista will not start after replacing card mother HP machine

* original title - new motherboard (gigabyte) replace dead on (asus) and vista don't launch *.

What should I do to continue using my original copy of windows vista on my hard drive. Or am I intended to buy a new copy?

I had a hp built machine with vista as os. the motherboard went bad, so I replaced it. Now I can not get Windows to start. All the hardware seems to work fine, bios is fine.

original Board was asus

New Board of Directors is gigabyte

Hey fzsq5s

you have also an activation problem because your hp vista oem license is bound to the original material that it came installed

read the information about the oem and sales license in detail below

If your computer is pre-installed with vista, it is classified as an oem license and it is related to the material that it is 1 installed on

as in the foregoing any case at level or the replacement of the motherboard will be done in collaboration with the manufacturer of the computer in your case hp

If he had a retail license you might have upgraded or replace your motherboard you

but you then have to reinstall vista as the old drivers of the motherboard would be still installed

I hope that the foregoing explains things

  • Vista will not start after replacing the motherboard

    The motherboard in my Dell Vostro 220 died for the 2nd time, and this time it's out of warranty. Not wanting
    another cheap/defective board from Dell, I bought a compatible Intel replacement from Newegg. After I put
    the replacement board in, Vista won't boot. Dell didn't provide an actual Vista cd/dvd, but rather their generic
    repair/driver cd, so I can't just reinstall Vista (32bit). I understand that Vista may have problems with the new
    motherboard, but didn't realize it wouldn't give me better opportunity to load new drivers from cd that came
    with the motherboard. Am I just screwed and going to have to buy a new Windows cd/licence? The log below is
    what Windows is reporting:
    Problem Signatures1  Auto Failover2  6.0.6001.18000.6.0.6001.180003  64  1966115  Bad Driver6  Bad Driver7  08  19  System Restore10  0
    OS Version 6.0.6001.

    OK, thanks to a thread on DANIWEB here is the solution to my problem - Hiren BootCD (v15.1). MiniXP to start and run difficult HDD controller app. This allowed Vista to boot far enough to get the cd accompanying the motherboard. Later, life is good, Vista hasn't even complained on the new motherboard and licenses.

  • Vista will not start after start or restart.

    Since last week, when I first start the computer, change user or log out or reboot, Vista does not start after the log in password stage (after accepting the password). I usually have to restart the computer twice so he could finally enter the Office of habit and I can work as usual.

    I tried to let the computer some time at this point to work through and start normally, but it does not work and I have to restart.

    I recently updated my anti-virus (BitDefender) for the 2010 edition.

    I don't know if is the recent update to Vista which is originally or not.

    Uninstall Bit Defender and see if that fixes things. Antivirus programs use low-level drivers which can sometimes cause problems. If the uninstallation of Bit Defender work, use a different antivirus. I recommend ESET NOD32 (commercial) or Avast free. If Bit Defender Uninstalling does not help, then you may experience hardware problems. Failing power supply or hard drive that often produces symptoms such as you describe.

  • Windows Vista will not start after the automatic installation of the patch Ms.

    My Dell laptop does an automatic installation of the latest MS patches (12/08/10) and now he can't boot into windows.  All tests show that the material is fine, but an error at the end of the "bad update patch" said test results I can not even to go back to a previous restore point.  This happened to me the year last on my desk... same thing, but it's XP which could not start after an automatic update for the Member States.  Dell technical support told me that MS knows what is happening, but it is not supposed to be public knowledge.  I need to know if there is a fix, in addition to erase everything and do a complete reinstallation of the operating system.

    Follow these steps to try to solve your problems of boot.


    Restore point:

    Do Safe Mode system restore, if it is impossible to do in Normal Mode.

    Try typing F8 at startup and in the list of Boot selections, select Mode safe using ARROW top to go there > and then press ENTER.

    Try a restore of the system once, to choose a Restore Point prior to your problem...

    Click Start > programs > Accessories > system tools > system restore > choose another time > next > etc.

    Read the above for a very good graph shows how backward more than 5 days in the System Restore Points by checking the correct box.



    If the system or Mode restore safe work not and you do not have a Microsoft Vista DVD, make a repair disc to do a Startup Repair:

    Download the ISO on the link provided and make a record of repair time it starts.

    Go to your Bios/Setup, or the Boot Menu at startup and change the Boot order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the boot order, then reboot with the disk in the drive.

    At the startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, go to Setup/Bios or F12 for the Boot Menu.

    When you have changed that, insert the Bootable disk you did in the drive and reboot.

    Link above shows what the process looks like and a manual, it load the repair options.

    NeoSmart containing the content of the Windows Vista DVD 'Recovery Centre', as we refer to him. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and is just a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, we could re-create this installation with downloadable media media freely from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK, several gigabyte download); but it is pretty darn decent of Microsoft to present Windows users who might not be able to create such a thing on their own.

    Read all the info on the website on how to create and use:

    It's a very good Vista startup repair disk.

  • Windows will not start after replacing the motherboard

    To begin, I must say that I am pretty clueless when it comes to computer skills.

    To summarize, I sent my CPU to a repair shop when my computer has stopped working. I removed my hard drive before starting the repairs because it contains confidential data.  They have narrowed the cause to a faulty motherboard and replaced by a new dissimilar.
    At the store, the guy had a vista 64 bit recovery disc so I have it home and tried to fix it. He said it will be a breeze and relatively bug free. As part of the Startup Repair, I tried to drive the Startup Repair, and tests were all successful except one. An error of diagnosis readings
    "Unspecified system configuration changes may have caused the problem.
    Repair action: repair and checking the integrity of system files
    Result: failed. Error code 0 x 490
    time taken = 720023 ms
    Everything I've done has led to a brief blue screen to the Windows loading screen and then it restarts itself.
    I also tried to restore to the previous two points, but it has also led to the square - a brief blue screen after the loading screen and restarts on its own windows. I'm not ready to reinstall vista and I can't afford to do it too, because I don't have enough disk space to perform another installation. Nor am I willing to reformat one of my two disks.
    If you need additional information on the specifications of the material that must be provided, ask me.
    IM at my end intelligence now, and I really hope to solve this problem.
    Thank you.

    I'm sorry, but you have to completely reinstall the operating system after replacing the motherboard with a different motherboard.

    "Startup Repair" is exactly that: a start NOT a repair system repairs

    What has happened, it is the operating system on your hard disk contains the drivers for the old motherboard and does not and you can't change drivers in doing what you do.

    The only way to solve this problem is to reinstall Vista.

    You wipe the hard drive and restart and make sure that the repair shop gave you the disc to install the new drivers of motherboard after you reinstall vista or download on the website of the manufacturer of the motherboard.

    And here a question for you to consider, too.

    If you bought a copy of Vista retail yourself, you can use the method above to a new installation and then install the new disk motherboard drivers.

    But, if your computer is a trademark of purchased manufacturer, HP, Toshiba, etc., you can not change the motherboard that the license of Vista OEM is stuck at motherboard the origin of the manufacturer that it has been installed on and now you canceled your Vista license.

    See you soon.

  • Re: Vista will not start after the installation of update

    About 2 days ago I updated 2 Optional updates through windows update. It was - Input - Synaptics Synaptics PS/2 Port TouchPad
    and somethind to do with sound hdmi (don't know why I got this update ' cos I do not have a hdmi and I accidentally installed it as well).
    After that installs Vista won't start so I did a restore of the system in safe mode, and she came back to life, however, isn't in better shape, will probably not not to install Vista all over again.
    So be careful when you install these updates.

    It's weird that they came with windows update. As much I know usually windows update does not update if not needed harddrivers...

    You need to update your hardware drivers from the Drivers Toshiba download site and not from Windows update because no one knows if they interfere with the drivers of Toshiba.

  • Vista will not start after update 04/09/09

    I have a HP tablet PC laptop vista a little home less than 2 years. I downloaded the updates, I unfortunately don't know what they where. My laptop was asked to restart I did. It turn off fine, but when he started toward the top of screen never came. It was late and I went to bed, thinking it was just a long update or something. The next morning, my screen is always black. I tried to start, but nothing happened. In the end I had to pull the battery to make it stop. I started again and the fan kicks on, and the monitor of the black stop at the lit on black as he was about to start, but nothing came on the monitor no splash screen not vista with the loading bar, nothing comes to any delay, not a pixel, not even a beep. I thought that the monitor was bad, so I tested the monitor by plugging it to my PC monitor of office still nothing on this screen, so I'm sure that computers portable monitor is good as all LEDs are lit and all. Food is good, I tested the battery on my friends computer of the same brand, it is fully charged. I can even things power out of usb. The only thing besides it not starting not not the least, is that the cd drive does not open. I brought out a cd holder thing and put my boot in her drive in the hope that something would come on the screen, but still absolutely nothing in black only. I tried to hit all the buttons f not one has nothing. I don't see anything else to do. I don't know how to test anything without any kind from screen. I backed everything up, so if I could get it just to run the boot disk I would take if I had to. Can anyone think of anything to do for her?

    If you have no boot at startup screen (Logo of Acer, DEll, etc.), what happens before the operating system starts.

    Your graphic/video control what comes on the screen.

    I would contact the manufacturer of the laptop.

  • My HP Pavilion DV6 will not start after replacing the screen

    I just replaced a cracked screen by following the instructions in the maintenance manual and now it does not start. The power light turns on and the fan works but nothing else happens. What can I do to trouble shoot this problem?

    The most common problem is the connection of the cable to the screen.  Make sure that it is tight. Check the connection to the motherboard as well, but it's usually OK.

  • Vista will not start after update 12/9 - a patch prevents the system from starting.

    My computer has downloaded an automatic update on 09/12/09.  It restarted while I was at work, and when I got home he had just ran a startup repair function which could not solve the problem.  I tried to run the rapair again and it failed.  I tried to do a system restore on the eve of the update, but the operating system could not start again, and I was sent automatically the Startup Repair tool.

    When I look at the diagnostics, the message says "a patch prevents the system from starting.  I have no idea how to solve this problem.  Can someone please?

    You try to use the package manager I link a few post above?  Otherwise, demarrer start from your DVD, type command prompt, and then follow the steps in method 2.
    If this does not fix it you can rename the pending.xml file and restart.  To do this, boot from the DVD and enter the command line.  Then type:
    CD windows\winsxs - press on enter
    Ren pending.xml pending.old - press on enter

    Then restart the system.

    You said "when I try to do a system restore, it is said that there is no previous restore point" and I was wondering if you have tried a "Startup Repair" not a system restore.  Mike - Engineer Support Microsoft Answers

  • Vista will not start after update 09/12/2009.

    After you install the updates available for me on December 9, 2009, Windows Update wanted the computer to restart to complete the installation. I made and went on my merry way. A while later, I rebooted the computer, but the screen resolution was twisted, is no longer big screen, had compressed air and had a strange grid points, and after the progress bar Windows Vista, the screen remains black - the Welcome screen never showed up.

    Kick system repair CD, found 'a fix will prevent' and system restore suggested. Subsequently, attempted to start Vista, but got the same result as before. Tried the CD to repair a few times more and always suggested the same thing, leading me to believe it was not actually the application of the system restore.

    Vista is able to boot in safe mode and safe mode with networking and attempted a restoration of the system from there to just before the patch, the night before (a prior restore point updates 12/8) and a point 12/5. In all cases restarted to complete the restoration and then rebooted to see if it worked - never did. Whenever I went to the system restore, it doesn't seem like it had restored any point...

    Attempted to launch Windows Update in safe mode, but nothing happened. Went to the windows update website to see if I could get the ActiveX update, but he comes to propose I have run Windows Update from my computer (nice), with no 'help' link or other way to declare that it did not work.

    Went into Add/Remove programs to see if there was an installable patch listed, but it does not list something beyond mid-November.

    Help. =[

    Run the System File Checker (the command is SFC/scannow) from the command prompt.  Also check that your system has all virus\malware.  Here is a link to a thread with some good information: get rid of malware

    You can also run a disk error check as well.    Mike - Engineer Support Microsoft Answers

  • Vista will not start! Black screen, no mouse, no cursor pointer. Startup Repair cannot repair. Details say 'wrong pass '. What is the correct syntax for pkgmgr to uninstall?

    Vista will not start!  Black screen, no mouse, no cursor pointer.  Startup Repair cannot repair.  Details say 'wrong pass '.  It looks like all the files are well intact on the disk.

    What is the correct for pkgmgr syntax when you try to uninstall an update by using a command prompt when starting Vista OS disk?  I entered the following in the "x:\Sources >" prompt:

    start /w pkgmgr/o: "C:\; /Up:Package_1_for_KB2840149~31bf3856ad364e35~x86~~ C:\Windows.

    When I run this command it ends quickly and when I run 'echo %errorlevel%' I get '5', which seems to mean 'access denied'.  How am I supposed to have access to remove the patch?  Am I missing something?  Perhaps a switch in the syntax to access?  Help, please.  Thank you.

    I tried both options that you recommended.  As initially stated, no boot option would produce something other than the black screen.  I tried to boot from a drive and restoring the system running, but she didn't, and when I tried to do it again the recovery console could not find restore points. ?.

    An update, the computer is now fixed.  Oddly enough, I ran recovery of starting a drive at least 8 times and each time I checked the details and he said: he ran chkdsk without error and return to the same cause "a patch is preventing windows to start.  I even ran chkdsk c: /f from a prompt command from the recovery disk and it found no errors.  That's when I posted the question above after trying to remove the patch in the manner described above.  After some time and frustration, I decided to run chkdsk /r c:.  It took awhile, but it found 1 bad sector, moved the data, the bad sector tag and finished.  Once I restarted from that, everything came and went very well.

    So, the original question remains, what was missing in the command to run pkgmgr/high: successfully.  And the new question exists as to why start Recovery claims run chkdsk if it does not, or he turns the version/f not the version/r the same as I did manually?  It would be good to know for the future.  Thank you!
