    Several BSOD errors cannot partition to factory settings


    Hello hello,

    Sorry, I wasn't sure if this is the right place to put my thread up.

    A couple weeks ago, while attempting to play an mmorpg on my Asus G60vx, I noticed it started to lag a little. My thought was "OK, just restart, because maybe it needs an update or it was on for so long. . . " Then IT happened . . .

    The BSOD would only occur right after the Windows Welcome loading screen (not giving me a chance to login). Each time I would get a different error. Sometimes 0x00000050 other times 0x0000001a (and a few others I don't remember).

    I removed any external devices (mouse, hard drive, USB stick. . . ).

    Then I attempted to do a Start Up Repair. . . After a hundred tries and unpluging the power and battery (don't really know why I did it) and letting it sit on my desk for a couple days. . . I manage to finally do a full scan with out getting a BSOD error. But of course, it said that Windows was unable to identify the problem. Go figure.

    Next, is the Memory Diagnostics Tool. While scanning, the status would say "HARDWARE PROBLEMS. . . " and then something about sending it in to the manufacture. And of course , I get a visit from the BSOD fairy.

    Stupid me. Didn't make any recovery disks nor did I revive any. So I am unable to do any "Restore to an earlier time".

    Then I hit the internet using a family members computer (currently on it as we speak). I read about "restoring to factory settings using a partition". Cool cool maybe that will work.

    Following the directions. . . Pressing F9, select Windows EMS Enabled (only option), Asus Preload Wizard window pops up. . . Now here comes the problem.

    I have attempted to restore several times, each time selected one of the options it has provided: Recover Windows to first partition only, Recover Windows to entire HD, and Recover Windows to entire HD with two partitions. Then it STARTS to do its thing. . . Until a big white window emerges with a BIG RED ERROR sign in it.

    I also have a lot of memory on it (use external HD to save school work, music, and such), so that's not an issue. A week or two before the last able login, I downloaded a few files (had to peer review classmates essays for college). I use Norton 360 and Windows 7 64bit (might be a premium). Computer is a few years old.

    What I would like to know is. . .
    WHAT THE @#%^ is going on?
    Hardware or software problem? (Was told it could be a nasty trojan or system malfunction)
    How can I prevent this from happening?
    How to solve this?

    Oh and I emailed Asus technical service. . . Still no word.

    Thank you for your time. Sorry for the big brick wall of text.

    The problem with that is, how do I run Malwarebytes and the BSOD Dump file zip . . . if I can't access my desktop screen at all. Is there a way to run the program via CMD?

    Sorry if that sounds confusing. . . and . . . Please forgive my limited computer skills :<

    ADDED:
    My computer is completely unstable.

    Another problem has occurred. . . While pressing F8 (System Recovery Screen). . . I get "BOOTMGR is Missing" . . .

    I am aware of this: Bootmgr is missing - Fix

    But I can't even do step one. . . Going in a big ol' loop. . .

    Can you get into Advanced Boot Options and select Repair Your Computer to start the Recovery Environment?

    If not, try System Repair Disc - Create (you can create this on any Windows 7 computer running 64-bit Windows). Just ask a friend to make the disc for you. Then boot off the disc to get into the Recovery Environment (RE).

    In the RE, open the command prompt.
    1. Type
      diskpart
      and let Diskpart load.
    2. Type
      list disk
      and find the disk number corresponding the disk that your Windows system is on. It should be the only disk with a size attributed to it in a laptop.
    3. Then type
      select disk 0
      assuming your disk number is 0 (mine is).
    4. Now type
      list partition
      and make a note of which partition contains the operating system files (if you know what size your Windows partition is). Also make a note of whether there is a system reserved partition, usually with 100 or 200 MB in size. This is very important to get correct, so if you are not sure, ask us.
    5. If you have a system reserved partition with a size in the 100-200 MB range, choose that partition. Otherwise, choose the partition containing the Windows files.
    6. Type
      select partition 1
      assuming the partition containing the appropriate files is partition 1.
    7. Type
      active
      to mark that partition as active. This signifies that this partition which contains the boot/operating system files is now active.


    Now try running startup repair three times with a reboot between each. Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times

    Try the 14 GB first. Run Startup Repair three times with a reboot between each.

    If that does not work, try the 283 GB partition with the same three Startup Repairs and reboot between each..

    Read Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times
    It says "if the process is interrupted or not completed you will be right back where you started" . . .

    So if I run Startup Repair and get a "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically" doe that mean it "does not count towards" the 3 repair runs ? And I have to redo the whole process ?

    Details-
    Problem signature:
    Problem Event Name: StartupRepairoffline
    Problem Signature 01: 6.1.7600.16385
    Problem Signature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
    Problem Signature 03: unknown
    Problem Signature 04: -1
    Problem Signature 05: External Media
    Problem Signature 06: 1
    Problem Signature 07: MissingBootManager

    It happens every time I do a repair .
