Windows 7: Win7 restart on startup today after yesterdays "volume manager" prob.

Win7 restart on startup today after yesterdays "volume manager" prob.

Hi there, I have problem with my machine and need some help.

My computer had a memory stick problem about two weeks ago, after I removed the one with problem and reinstalled Windows 7, everything worked fine. This monday, I installed Adobe pdf reader from their website and used the machine for the rest of the day with no issue. Then on tuesday morning when started my computer, I got this "Volume Manager Installed, need to reboot" thing. If I reboot now, same message pops up after reboot. Tried many times until I gave up and selected reboot later. Then the machine worked fine for the rest of the day.

However, today when I start my computer, as soon as I got into windows, after my google talk loaded, I got "there is a problem in windows explorer" thing, and I can either choose to "find solution online" or "close". If I select first, system will reboot and same thing happen every time. If I close, I got a blue screen, then automatic reboot also brings me back to the same thing. I tried boot under safe mode, no luck.

I'm not sure if the three incidiences (installing adobe, volume manager problem, and blue screen problem) are related, and I wonder if reinstalling windows will solve the problem?

I have Windows 7 64bit, cpu i5, 2G mem (use to be 4G but removed 2G). It's not a brand computer and I cannot remember the rest of the spec.

Thanks for your help!

I would post up the bluescreen bugcheck file in our Crashes forum for expert advice on the cause: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums

Well, I decided to reinstall the system last night. I formatted my C drive so cannot post the BSOD now...

But I encountered another problem while installing Windows 7. During the installation, an error poped saying one file is corrupted. But I have installed Windows 7 twice using that CD on this machine with no problem, and I'm pretty sure the disk was not damaged. I tried using my WinXP disk (which also worked fine on my other machine), same thing occurred.

This was not the first time such thing happened. I usually download installation exe (such as google talk, real player) from offical sites, save the exe on my D drive so that I don't need to redownload after reinstall the system. Sometimes this "file corruption" thing happens on random exe files. But when I redownload (same version, same site) and execute, no problem.

Any guess on what's wrong with my machine? Could that be something related to the problem stated in my first post? Many thanks!

Did you boot the Windows 7 installer, use Custom>Drive options to delete C and create a new partition there to format and install? Clean Reinstall steps

You may need to move the data off the HD to wipe it of all code: Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
DISKPART At PC Startup

Unplug all other HD's and peripherals.

Next try resetting the CMOS: Clear CMOS - 3 Ways to Clear the CMOS - Reset BIOS

While in BIOS setup set the SATA controller to AHCI to try install.
