Win 7 Fails to Boot - Could use some help - Page 2

post #11 of 24
What is the last file it shows as trying to load right when it restarts, in safe mode of course. I have a feeling you just have a corrupted driver file. Maybe you can isolate it and copy a new one over with the live cd if so.

I think it would be best to use an Ubuntu CD to back up all your important files. And then do a clean install.

I recently ran into this problem.. I believe it was a windows update at fault, Because i also had this problem on my laptop. Im not sure if there was something i do/use on my computers that caused this to happen.

I cant help much from there.. Or at all But hope it works out.

Disconnect the hdd and then try to enter safe mode with only the ssd connected. If that doesn't work, try running the repair tool again. It should attempt to repair the boot sector on the ssd again.

For some reason there are problems with the windows setup/repair utility and certain ssds.

Ok I think I'm getting somewhere. It hangs on classpnp.sys

After doing some searching it looks like other people are having very similar issues as I am. I'm still looking for a resolution at this point.

No luck with that.


Thanks everyone. I'll be repping everyone when I have some more free time.

I'm just throwing this out, it could be the video card? In the past when my PC restarted during games I thought it was my CPU becoming unstable, was actually my 480's drivers causing the problems. Even at stock speeds it would black screen a lot and restart. Doing a fresh reformat of windows helped me out.

I used my netbook to take this photo. I know I said in the OP I wasnt getting a BSoD but then I found the F8 option to stop windows from restarting after an error and I found this


"STOP: 0x0000007b (0xfffff880009a9928, 0xffffffffc0000034)"

I took out the GPU reset CMOS again and tried to boot off the onboard vga, same problem.

dont feel bad im in the same boat as you... only mine sits at the logo screen and a fan (not sure if its the gpu or cpu fan) starts to spin loud. so i have to turn off the psu and start again to see if it boots. got new ram today and that didnt fix the issue. fresh install didnt fix the issue. if you figure it out lemme know and ill do the same

i want to say its my hard drive thats causing my issue... but i really dont know

Well, even after trying to use 5 different entries in windows "System Restore" (the restore points your pc automatically makes when installing new software and updates) it still didn't resolve the problem. I then remembered that I had set windows backup and restore feature to not only back up the things in my personal folders but to also make a system image. I chose the option to restore from this and it worked. I have my system back and it doesn't look like I lost any files or settings.

This just goes to show that completely random failings of the Windows OS can happen to anyone at anytime even to the most meticulous user who knows how to take care of a computer and it's software. Backup your stuff.

To the socks guy I wish you the best of luck. Are you getting a bluescreen error? Is it the same one I was getting? I still havn't figured out what the problem is/was but I'm pretty curious so I'm going to be doing a bit more research.

Yea, I would have to agree I think you have reached your last resort: a clean install of windows. Sorry broham. Good luck.

EDIT: also about the windows 7 updates, there is one that is specifically known to cause issues. I will come back with the exact update number. It says please download this update to enable future updates. Its really an antipiracy update that can cause serious problems.
