Windows xp sp3 does not start after the failure of windows update and restart.


My ADVENT 3217 pc runs windows xp sp3 does not start once a windows recently failed update and restarted. He's just in a reboot loop. The first time it happened I got an error code of c000021a. I tried pressing F8 and try to start safe mode and other options... but still nothing. I also tried to use my restore disc supplied with my pc. So far, I've only tried the non-destructive recovery to restore windows and it did not work. I don't want to lose my files that I have not saved for quite awhile.

Can anyone help?

Thank you

    Windows media player is not adequately at a standstill and must be reienstalled.

    There are no other options to fix the problem that caused Microsoft with the update. I tried to do a restore but it then cause a problem which made the player doesn't do not not the CD to record the right as he said that I had to get the new drivers that microsft does not automatically download drivers when they remove them in this process.

    Another thing you could try is to install ESXi on a USB key.

  • Pavilion dm4-1160us does not start after the failure of system recovery

    I have Windows 7 Home edition is installed. In my view, it is 64-bit.

    I get everything by initializing the error message is:

    "BOOTMGR is missing".

    Press Ctrl + Alt + Delete to restart»

    When running various tests (Tuneup, break-in, Start-up, hard drive) in I always get the same failure ID: M4PC2J-5KQ6N0-XD6V41-60VG03. The poduct ID is XH124UA #ABA.

    The case began after my computer froze and I forced the reboot.

    I guess that the hard drive is a gonner. Is this correct?

    Hi Mario,.

    Personally, I recommend to replace the hard drive yourself - it is a surprisingly simple process (and much cheaper).  A brief guide on this is detailed below.

    Your computer is listed as coming with a 500 GB hard drive, but you can also easily install a 750 GB HARD drive if you want a little more space - readers at the following links are examples that would be perfect for your laptop.

    Hard drive 500 GB

    750 GB hard drive.

    The procedure to replace the hard drive begins on Page 61 of your & Maintenance Guide.

    Once this is done, simply use your recovery media to reinstall the operating system on the new drive - this is described in the document of HP here.

    If you do not have your recovery media, let me know because there is another option, you can use it as long as you can clearly read the activation of 25-character product key on your label COST.

    4. Have you performed an installation clean Windows XP and even after that this problem exists?

    Method 1

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

    Original title: xp does not start after the installation of avira

    I have a HP Slimline s7410

    I had Norton free with Comcast, but since I have no more Comcast became Norton expired. So I uninstalled Norton and installed the free version of Avira, he scanned the computer and it was clean. I went to reboot and now it does not start.
    I have a cd/dvd drive of work.
    I don't have an XP bootable installation CD

    My system worked well until: I installed the free version of Avira

    Whenever I select one on the XP advanced options options menu start, it goes into a boot loop.
    I turn off the auto reboot system failure although it seems only work once, as the next time he's trying to start up it goes into the boot loop.

    Here's what my BSOD looks like:

    Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. Check the configuration of your hard drive and check the updated drivers. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

    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.

  • 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?
