You may have to run it up to three times to fix it. Sorry, I should have added that.

Edit: You may want to read Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times if you are interested in why it takes up to three times for startup repair to be successful.

Well I ran it about 3 times. Tried a 4th and said there were no errors. Restarted, managed to stat up normal mode now. Though I am not sure if its still gona crash ore not. I dont know if its related or just a whole other problem all together.

So I had it on for a while. It was fine, then I started playing Skyrim and about 8 minutes in I crashed and had sound looping. Also it didn't boot up after restart.

* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.
Did you go through these steps to get minidump files?

Yeah, I've had that setup before I started crashing.

What is the size of your allocated page file? Do you have any other drives on your computer with a page file?

I'm not entirely sure what you mean.

Start Menu->Right Click My Computer->Properties->Advanced System Settings->Under Performance, Settings...->Advanced->Under Virtual Memory, Change...

How many drives are listed in the white box? What is the total paging file size for all drives (currently allocated)?

Recommend that you not change any values until instructed to do so, just let us know what is listed.
