Windows 7: Reboot Loop After Win Logo

Reboot Loop After Win Logo

Hello, firstly my sincere apologies if this is the incorrect location to post this, im new here.

Also i think it would be better if read the start as it describes what happened before the active problem occured.

Recently i took it upon myself to speed up my boot time. In the process of this i messed with advanced boot settings in ms config and set it to 4 cores and memory to 40XX , after this happened i restarted my pc and got a system_bad_config_info which wouldnt stop.

Upon running all the recovery options many times i managed to log in once(somehow i managed to boot it with 256mb, i dont know how i did it) it took 20 minutes before i was able to open anything due to slowness but as soon as i could i went into msconfig and and unchecked the cpu and memory thing then applied. (I did not do the permanant thing which may have saved me from all this lol).

Ok so after i did that i rebooted and all was fine!!!! During this time all i did was reenable in msconfig normal services where it boots all startup and service items(I unchecked all the startup ones tho). After i restarted the error came back. bad_system_config_info

2 Things That May Have Gone Wrong:
1. I should have checked the make boot settings permanent and when i didnt they reverted
2. I have a corrupt service or driver that upon reenable bugged out


Note: At this point all options lead to bsod with bad_system_config_info including all safemodes

Only repair tool worked
I had also tried everything else

WHAT I DID THEN:

I went into the cmd prompt via repair tool and did the following:

bcdedit /deletevalue {default} truncatememory

This unchecked the memory option in msconfig boot settings.

I rebooted the pc and BSOD HAD GONE.

PROBLEM:

In the same boot when the bsod didnt occur, as soon as the cursor popped up, that was it.

Starting from that same boot, after every bootload a black screen comes with a cursor. The cursor i can move, however after a few seconds the computer reboots and gets stuck in this loop.

Bios > BootLoad > Black Screen with movable mouse > Seconds Later > Reboot


Please advise me as what to do. I will try EVERYTHING as i do not want to reformat as i have files on the osdrive i want to keep.

I am sure it is not a hardware error. But here are my pc specs:
i5-750 @3.4Ghz
gb-p55-ud3
2x2gb kingston memory 1333
600w coolermaster
500gb wd
500gb seagate (osdevice)

I can if needed video what is happening and provide photos of any screen required.


I hope you can help.

Thank you for the help but it did no good.

I was able to successfully do:

Remove the overclock via optimised settings in bios
chkdsk /f /r

-----
These failed:

Minidump: Not possible as i can not get inside windows

sfc scan: failed. Msg: There is a system repair pending which requires reboot to complete. Restart windows and run sfc again.

Comp was restarted many times, still failed for sfc.

As for the error its exactly the same, with or without safemode it gets past bootlogo then shows a cursor that i can move on a black screen then restarts seconds later.

Please advise.

repair failed.

I will try to do repair install however i dont think it would be possible? I cant get past boot logo and the requirments for a repair install include:

You can only do a repair install from within Windows 7.
You cannot do a repair install at boot or in Safe Mode.
You must be logged into Windows 7 in a administrator account to be able to do a repair install.

Regardless i will get my hands on an install cd from a friend, it may take a day or two.

Ok i got the install dvd early.

I know you linked to that repair install page but i dont know how to do it in my case.

In that scenario im asked to do it from desktop? As mentioned previously above the closest i can get to that a cmd prompt via repair tools.

Should i set boot priority to cddrive and do it like that?

Please tell me how to do it in my case please lol.
