Winddows does not start after Sysprep

I had a hard time for a deployment of 64-bit Windows 7 to work on a Dell Optiplex 760.  I installed Windows 7, ran in the mode Audit, installed all the drivers, installed the basic software (Java, Flash, Shockwave, etc.) and Office 2007 and fact that Windows and Office updates have been installed.  I have a unattend file that has worked for me in the past on the workstations HP (also 64 bit) so I Sysprep using that, pushed up to our WDS, but when I bring it down to the same Dell 760, try to boot into Windows, it restarts then says that Windows couldn't start, probably due to a change in software or hardware.  I tried pulling all the drivers with Double Driver and their inclusion in a group of pilots on the WDS, but it does the same thing.  I tried to start a startup on Windows DVD repair, but it says that it cannot solve the problem.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to what I can try next?

  • Computer does not start after the screen of the bios, Compaq Presario SR1023WM

    Ok. Trying to fix a friend's computer and seem to have met a strange barrier.

    Problem: The computer does not start after the bios screen.

    Details: When you turn on the computer, the compaq logo with intel inside is and has the < F1 Setup > and < F10 System Recovery > options listed as well.  And that's it as far as the computer becomes.  After that the computer just locked up, no work of buttons on the keyboard lights keyboard ect ect.  I tried the puree on the F1 key, as soon as I turn on the computer and I can handle so he can say * entering setup * but it freezes again after this point.  I already tried to eliminate the possible sources of the problem, removed all expansion cards, HDD and Dvd Rom module only disconnected, only memory (256 MB ddr 2700), power, vga and keyboard connected.  Ive also used the jumper on the motherboard to clear the cmos, hoping that would solve the problem without success.  I tried using a different memory stick and different memory as well...  Tried to use both a ps2 and a usb keyboard... Ive even tried pulling the rider for the protection of the bios password (even if she did not have a password on it, just try everything I can think of).

    The installed bios version is 3.1, and that's all that I know on the computer at this point, except that the website tells me to him. & LC = on & CC = US & DLC = in & Submit.y = 5 & Submit.x = 3 & lang = to & CC = US <-link to the Web page for the model #.

    I'm basically at a loss on this one, so if someone feels scroll line-by-line of their brains on this one, I'd be very happy.

    I have a pretty strong understanding of computer repair, so feel free to give me something to try.

    If you need more information out of me, let me know as well.

    Try to clear the CMOS again but this time remove CMOS battery and hold the power button on a few seconds. Replace the battery, then try to start back to the top.

    At the back of the pc is the condition of the PSU led green or flashing?

  • Re: Smoker L30-10 X PSL33E does not start after upgrading RAM


    I have a problem with my laptop.
    It has 1024 MB of RAM (2 x 512), but it wasn't enough, so I decided to update to 2048 MB (2 x 1024).

    I bought two modules and my computer does not start after changing them.
    It was only a screen black (same BIOS has not started). I tried another combination of installation of memory modules RAM.
    2 x 1024 - did not work
    1 x 1024 - did not work
    1 x 1024 + 1 x 512 - working but not properly.

    BIOS find that I only 896 MB (1024-128 for the video card)
    I said OK. Let's see what will show windows. He was also 896 MB.
    I launched CPU - Z and it shows that the total size of memory is 1536 MB (medium detect both modules).
    I found that CPU - Z detect 1 module 1 024 MB and 512 MB secondary, but the BIOS detect only 1024 MB 1536. How is that possible?

    I have fought, is that my BIOS is old, then I update the toshiba Web site form most recent version, but the problem persists.
    Please someboy help me and tell what to do.

    PS. the Modules are new and work correctly.
    They have been tested.


    Have you used two identical RAM modules?

    What kind of modules did you use?

    In my view, that the problem is related to the new, inserted modules.
    There must be something wrong with the modules or modules are not completely compatible if the laptop can not boot after installation.

    According to a few pages of the book handles the DDR2 533 MHz (PC2-4200) 200-PIN SODIMM modules.

    Did you use these modules?

  • Satellite A200 PSAEOE does not start after upgrading memory

    Hi, I am first time here.

    I bought a Toshiba A200 PSAE0E-03J02JDR with 2 GB of RAM. I bought a pair of ram Corsair (2 * 2 GB VS2GSDS667D2). The computer does not start after that I installed the memory. I have intel 945 chipset, which is capable of 4 GB (manual page 1-2). The bios version is 1.8 2007.

    Can anyone help me, please.

    Post edited by: Marian ovidiu


    The A200 series supports different chipsets;
    Intel 945 PM
    Intel 945GM
    Intel 943GML

    As far as I know your laptop supports the * 943GML * Intel chipset and the chipset supports 2 GB RAM max.
    Take a look at your laptop s user manual * Page 18.*

    Summer: 4 GB of RAM are not possible, and therefore your laptop does not start.

  • Satellite P200D-130 does not start after upgrading RAM

    Hi, I just upgraded the RAM on my P200D 130 but it does not start after that.
    I removed the 2 Hynix 1 GB PC2-5200 and put in 2 SO Kingston DDR2 2 GB PC667 (should be the same as PC2-5200).
    Post-market nothing happens, light power control is turned on, I him stays CD drive but screen black, no beeps.

    I put one of the 1 GB modules, it starts normally, then I tried a 1 GB into the lower slot module and a 2 GB module in the top slot and it works.
    I tried a single 2 GB module in each slot, even in the form of 2 2 GB modules.

    What could be the reason, better: what would be the solution to ensure that the modules of 2 x 2 GB to work?

    Thanks in advance,



    I think that both modules are not compatible to the laptop.
    Normally you can upgrade your laptop to 4 GB. Look in the user manual.

    The RAM, you should bring the computer dealer and request a new one. More buy modules with the same specifications and dimensions. Try buying RAM with the same specs as before.

    Good bye

  • Pavilion HPE H8-1121: Pavilion HPE H8-1121 - new graphics card + power supply does not start after screen HP (Revisited)

    I have the same problem as this post 2013!  Ouch. Pavilion HPE H8-1121 - new map chart + power supply, does not start after HP screen.

    I installed a new power supply (Seasonic 620W), which works well.  I also installed a GTX 660Ti last year and it was works fine as well.  I recently bought a ZOTAC GTX 970 and attempted to install it, but it will not go beyond the blue HP screen and I get the same code of beeps (1 long, 3 short), who, seems, suggests that the video is not initialized.

    My BIOS date is 2011.

    Where can I find an update for this?

    I'm also using Windows 10, which I found on the HP site is not tested on my model and would probably not favourable to good use.  Should I do back up to 7 or 8?  and then update the BIOS?  Y at - it a update for my BIOS and where can I find.

    In any case, I hope that this is a solution.  Again, this is not a bad machine to be 5 years old.

    Thanks for any help!

    If the video card that you have purchased dose not a legacy vBIOS it will never start. An update of the BIOS doesn't solve that.

    It is likely that your new video card has a vBIOS UEFI and that only is for the PC motherboards newer than yours which have a UEFI BIOS. Your motherboard has a legacy BIOS. 2012 is the year of model when the UEFI BIOS more or less became the de facto on motherboards standard.

    I return it for a refund. Find the candidate of video cards that support the old BIOS. It can be inherited only or switchable vBIOS (legacy or UEFI) vBIOS.  I suggest looking at the site of Sapphire Technology. ZoTac is not known to provide enough information about their video cards in the way. You upgrade a pre-built desktop PC and it's different and a little more difficult to set up a DIY PC. I looked at the site of Zotac and see that nothing is said about their video vBIOS cards.  I would return to the map.  Carefully read the specifications of the video card. A candidate for your motherboard card must have inherited vBIOS support or simply, it won't work.

    ZOTAC (they don't say anything about their product vBIOS)

    Sapphire Technology

    Because you look at game with 4 GB cards. Take a look at the following map. It has a double vBIOS. legacy and UEFI.

  • computer does not start after the Windows XP logo window

    Windows xp home edition
    service pack 2
    Dell inspiron 1501

    1. computer does not start after the Windows XP logo window
    2 works well in safe mode, even connect to the external monitor
    3. I reinstalled xp many times, problem stil exist.

    All the answers?

    Hi dhanushm,

    1. What happens after the Windows logo screen?
    2. You receive an error message?
    3. You have security software installed on the computer?
    4. Have you performed an installation clean Windows XP and even after that this problem exists?

    Method 1

    As the computer starts up fine in safe mode there is a possibility that some third-party programs installed on the computer is the origin of the problem.

    I suggest that you configure the computer in a clean boot state and check if it helps.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows XP by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See section to learn more about how to clean boot.

    How to configure Windows XP to start in a "clean boot" State

    Reset the computer to start as usual

    When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

    1. Click Start , and then click run.
    2. Type msconfig , and then click OK.
      The System Configuration utility dialog box appears.
    3. Click the general tab, click Normal Startup - load all device drivers and services , and then click OK.
    4. When you are prompted, click restart to restart the computer.

    Method 2

    If fails it above step can refer to the article below and try the steps mentioned, check if it helps.

    Any help is greatly appreciated! :)

    My first suggestion is to do a system restore at this time point.

    second suggestion is to keep your external drive connected to the pc at all times.  only detach when necessary.   of course, it would be better to install a second hard drive in the computer instead.   in any case, keep your personal files out of the system disk is a wise thing to do.   You can also download and store files for free on the Microsoft Skydrive site.

    third suggestion is to keep your system set upward through executing a check disk and Defrag at least once a month.   Basically, you can open the Explorer and right-click on the drive letter.  then select Properties, and on the Tools tab, you will have the opportunity to run the disk check.  then reboot and do a Defrag.   where this disk check fails, then you will need to run it to the drive via a bootable cd prompt.

    Interestingly, I don't know if the bootable cd that you made you allows to run the disk check.

    so my suggestion is to do a series of tests using your cd bootable your computer works.  see if you can actually run a chkdsk/r at the moment with them.    If Yes, then if your constant worries are having bad sectors on the hard disk, chkdsk/r will identify and mark so windows will jump on them.    in any case, see if your boot at the moment media can run a check disk at all, and let me know.

    fifth proposal is to install "microsoft security essentials" like your anti virus program.  even if you have run ubantu, it is not likely to have been an infected copy.   anti - are most critical virus for windows and not not so much for ubantu or linux is because windows is a system of world class operations.    the people who make the virus deliberately their engineer for the windows operating system.   If, however, ubantu and linux have been just as popular as Windows, virus engineers would make infections for the o.s. too.     Although they no doubt, attacks are more frequent for the windows os.
