Win 7 x86 can't boot up, startup repair could not detect problem.

My system crashed on my acer laptop - I wasn't doing anything out of the ordinary - It wouldn't boot back up. Would boot into safe mode so I did this & followed instructions to stop all other programs running other than microsoft, still wouldn't boot up - just hangs at the win7 logo screen. I tried system repair a few times & it reported problems that it couldn't fix. Then it wouldn't even boot up into safe mode, just get blank screen with cursor.

I created a new repair disk from my PC which is running fine, booted my acer laptop up from this ran system repair & it says it could not detect any problems, but still can't boot up even in safe mode.

Hi all
I had the same problem. What is strange to me, is that the C partition get renamed to a D partition and a new C partition gets created (about 100 Mb) What would be the reason(s) for that and how can one reverse this process to only have on big C partition?

The 100mb partition is the bootmanager for windows, and it should not be labeled with a drive letter.

How did this happen? Did you previously have a Dual Boot? Are you reading the drive letters from a boot disk which is not always correct? Start your own thread and provide a camera snap of your source output.

Just ran the start up repair 3 times re-booting in between then tried to boot up and got the following error;

winlogon.exe - Bad Image

c:\windows\system32\UXINIT.dll is either not designed to run on windows or it contains an error. Try installing the program again.

The error relates to AVG crapware which you either have or had installed. This is not recommended by anyone and is best uninstalled and replaced with Microsoft Security Essentials with the WIn7 Firewall kept updated Automatically.

If this was installed recently you may be able to System Restore from the DVD or Repair CD System Recovery Options to before it's install to get it Started. If not I would manually try restoring as far back as you can to try to start it.

Then if necessary continue with the other Troubleshooting steps from the top. What were the results of the AV scans? The AVG error could relate to its corruption by infection. You must complete every step to be assured you've done everything possible to start Win7 before giving up to rescue your files and run Recovery or Clean Reinstall.

Hi,

Please try this:

1. Click Start
2. In the search box, type cmd
3. In the list that appears, right-click on cmd.exe and choose Run as administrator
4. In the command window that opens, type sfc /scannow and hit enter.

Report the output once it finishes.
