Windows 7: ptop won't boot to windows anymore

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Do you think my MBR is corrupted? Saw these 2 programs but not sure if they would help

MBRWizard! - The MBR Management Utility

or trying Nuclear BCD attempt 3 from this page
bcdedit - Problem recreating BCD on Windows 7 64bit - The requested system device cannot be found - Super User

A corrupted MBR or BCD will prevent system from booting at all - you don't even see the logo animation if one of them is corrupt.


It no longer goes into blue screen. instead of shows black screen loading windows on bottom and then just reboots pc automatically. Now reboots instead of blue screen.

Try a memory isolation test. That is remove all but one stick and boot the system. If the issue persist, unplug the corruntly plugged module and try another one. Repeat this with all modules - you will know if one of them is faulty.

Also you should select "Disable Automatic Restart on System Failure" to display the BSOD screen on some cases. If Windows restarts at a very early stage, BSOD may not be displayed at all.

Thanks for trying. I took it it to a pc shop and they said one of memory slots for ram went bad, so they tried removing that ram on that slot but still took them to BSOD. They also said they found about 100 viruses they had to clean. I was only using microsoft security essentials and never saw my laptop slowing down or any errors that would make me think i had a virus.

They must of tried everything since they stood with it for some days. but the last resort was to reinstall windows all over again. They managed to transfer my files back except programs. I had to reinstall those

Weird issue I saw was about 10 video files all had a size of 0 KB. It wouldn't let me play them like it did before. I checked the SSD drive (The one that couldn't boot into windows) to see if maybe was a bad transfer from this drive onto my new SSD drive but it also said 0 KB. Before the BSOD it was never 0 KB and was able to play

Is there a way to recover that or most likely the viruses erased the data from those 11 files?

That is surely weird but i have seen malwares which corrupts JPEG files and MS Office documents. It might be also a result of file system corruption happened due to multiple BSOD and/or boot failures. I would suggest trying "Puran File Recovery" which is a free program to recover lost files. If you are lucky, it will do the job.
