The Dreaded Vista Startup Repair Loop
Posted on 2009-05-09
Alright I am having tons of trouble with this computer. And I cant think of anythink else to do to see if it will bugde.
HP Pavillion dv6
Windows Vista (unknown bit)
Current actions taken:
I have seen this same computer before, last time I reset the computer back to the company's original settings after doing a data backup.
But before doing that I ran a Memory test (Memtest86. and Onboard one) and a Hard Drive Test (Spinrite and Onboard one). I did these after System startup repair would not fix the problem and gave the error message Auto***v2 (Cant remember exactly) after that I ran a chkdsk /r/f/x, that didnt find anything. Following that I did a System restore, progressivly until there were no more. Nothing fixed the problem.
I am unable to run sfc /scannow because the system has flagged startup repair. When I try to go to safe more or last good configuration it just goes back to the startup repair loop.
The computer starts up and then show "Windows is loading files" followed by the normal status bar for Vista and then computer boots into what I guess is the other partition and attepts to do a startup repair, this fails and then if you reboot it goes back to the same process
Please help or give ideas
