Windows 7: Windows 7 caught in an infinite loop

Windows 7 caught in an infinite loop

This morning i started up my pc, left for a little while, came back and noticed my pc reaching a certain point, receiving a BSOD and restarting. It gets past the little windows loading icon then comes up to a dick check - "One of your disk needs to be checked for consistency..." it begins the scan than a BSOD flashes and it restarts.

Ive tried system restore but it came up with an error. Ive also tried booting in safe mode but it just freezes up and restarts. The only thing that seems to work is Boot in last known good configuration.

I haven't installed any new programs or drives and the last windows update i installed was two days ago.

Any help would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Hello and welcome xcorrupt mate any external stuff plugged in if so take them and try.

You need to get into safe mode. Some specs would be good too

Thanks for the replies. ICit2lol i actually did have an external hard drive connected, but i have it connected to my pc 90% of the time so i didn't think that it was the problem, but i tried it anyway. I restarted my pc (from 'last known good configuration') without my external hard drive plugged in and it managed to boot up successfully. Once it reached the desktop a message came up saying that the system restore was successful, thought when i tried to do the restore earlier it errored.

The restore xcorrupt was probably held up by the external being plugged in. In some cases it is always a good idea to sort stuff out with everything unplugged from your machine to prevent any "interfering" from outside devices when you are diagnosing and doing restores etc
