is this repair applicable to vista?

Hello. My girlfriend has a windows vista os and has this exact same problem with the same screen shots. Can you tell me how to fix her laptop.

If I try this fix I get stopped at the same point as moodycool3 above.

I have just joined the forum today so hi to everyone.
I am having problems with this also, I got to step 13 and all of the folders have 0 bytes.
Could someone please help? I did not carry on the procedure as recommended due to the 0 bytes.

Hello Chris, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if you may be able to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before you had this issue to fix this.

If not, then you may need to reinstall Windows.

Hi.
It says that they are no restore points created. I've ran CHKDSK and there are numerous bad sectors.
Trying to avoid a clean install if possible :-(

It doesn't sound good if you have that many bad sectors.

I would recommend to use the Live Peppermint DVD/USB below (or your choice) to back up anything that you do not want to lose to another location in case the drive may be failing and before it does.

I'm not sure it'll be possible to avoid a clean install, and possibly having to replace the hard drive if it doesn't pass using the hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic tool (ex: SeaTools).

Thanks for your help.
I may take the opportunity to upgrade the HDD to a bigger capacity - would be rude not to! Hehe

Startup repair infinite loop recovery

I have followed your instructions (3 times) and cannot get my computer fixed. I also ran system restore at the oldest point and still cannot start. I show 0 bytes in the files. You mentioned trying a different solution, and I am at that point now.

What is the problem? Are you getting startup repair infinte loop?

When you run system restore, what happens, how far does it get? Any messages?

Seems you have HP preinstalled with 32 bit win7?

What is the model number? Which edition of win7?
