Windows 7: Windows won't fully start

Hi cedar,
Sir,
1. All is well with the printer & other devices now. Maintain the status.
2.
(a) Cheers. That's what we were looking for from the recovery partition! Go for 'Reinstall Windows' option. It would not be like a normal install/reinstall & would be more of a restore where all of the important settings will be chosen for itself. Just go with the default settings & it will take care of.
(b) For understanding the process & make out/avoiding any mistakes, just be ready with a notebook & pen. Wherever you have a doubt or make an input, make a note of it. It would be always good if you can make a video ( Last time your video was upside down! ).
3.Seniors/Pros say/recommend to make Windows Updates as soon as you are done. ( But i won't! I would make them only, once i have made a stable system & imaged it )

I would expect that your first contact with internet should be for installing/activating antivirus program & that too as soon as possible! As i said its not a clean install, so it may be that it includes a free 30/60 days trial of a security suite/program. You have to decide whether you want to enjoy the free trial. To enjoy free trial, you may need to connect to internet to activate the free trial. It depends.

If you don't want to enjoy the free trial, you will need to remove it properly. The removal process would depend upon the security suite installed. Then install the one you want.

I believe you should use/access only fully secure/scanned external media before that.

As for external devices, it would be better to make sure that your basic devices are installed & working properly. Then connect to internet & connect/insert them one by one.

So, for now proceed with the 'Reinstall Windows' option, follow the on screen instructions carefully & report once the process is finished.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Edit : Better concentrate on the process than making video. Still better don't make any video Just note down the doubts & inputs!

Well I did the reinstall windows.
Chose not to do updates.
Finished and it gave me the option to restore my files (snap below).
Just when I was going to select restore my files it crashed again just like it has always been doing.
When it restarted I didn't see the "restore files" option box reappear.
And it keeps crashing.
I just shut it off.


So it appears the reinstall was not what the problem/solution was and maybe I won't be able to restore my old files now.


Sighhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!

Hi cedar,
Sir,
1. I would have said that don't try to restore/access/connect to any type of backups/datas/old things unless you have shielded your pc with Antivirus & Windows Updates. They may have infections. Then you have to scan them & if they are clear, you can use them. Also if you try to restore User Data, etc., it may always put you again in trouble as it is from a corrupted installation. Use only the files of your interests & not the system files, application settings,etc. Anyway, If you backed up the data, you can restore them later.
2. Just check the 'Action Center' Icon ( Flag ) : does it do some talking ? Also open it & expand the tabs ( Maintenance & Security ) on the right. Any talking ? Check 'Security' tab for installed security application(s). Take snaps & post.

3. Go through 'Information', 'Note' & 'Option One', You are supposed to disable automatic restart using Option One & mention the Error Messages & Codes,etc. on crashes from now onwards!

Hello Vineet.


Didn't see your latest post til now.
Sorry.


I think you don't understand.
I didn't get a chance to restore anything.
The computer crashed just like it's always been doing.
In other words the repair/restore I did accomplished nothing.
It's just like it was before.
Maybe that means it's deinitely a hardware issue.
I don't know.


At any rate I don't have any flag.
I'm running windows 7 and your pics are from windows 8.


cheers.

Hi cedar,
Sir,
1.I think you don't understand. I didn't get a chance to restore anything.
I did never intend that you restore any backed up system files. Apart from security woes, there are other concerns with restoring user profiles,app settings,etc as it was a problematic installation. I asked you to manually back up/copy files of your personal interest i.e. Music, Video, PDF, Audio, Images, Word, Excel, Power point,etc. and keep them safely aside for using a little later. I would advise to secure shield your system, make sure your files are scanned/safe and then use them. Sacrifice system files from the previous installation to avoid any problems and keep only the files of your personal interest. The recovery has been done as desired.
2. The computer crashed just like it's always been doing. In other words the repair/restore I did accomplished nothing. It's just like it was before.
For the moment, it seems it changed nothing But the repair was needed for diagnosing purposes.
3. At any rate I don't have any flag.
The flag should be there in the system tray i.e. in the right bottom of desktop task bar. May be hidden somewhere!
Anyway, you just need to go to Action Center and analyze/report the things there.
If you find it difficult, you can use this desktop shortcut 'Option One> Step 1 To Step 4'
Action Center Shortcut - Create

4. I'm running windows 7 and your pics are from windows 8.
Those particular ones are almost same for windows 7 as well. Go ahead.
5. I need standard disk management snap as well.

Let us know.

Thanks & Regards. ...

Downloaded the action center shortcut.
Can only run it in safe mode right now (snap below).


Will shut off computer for a few hours and hopefully will be able to run in normal mode tomorrow.
Will get back.


thanks!!!

Hi cedar,
1. Would like to have both views 'Device Manager' & 'Action Center' from normal boot.
2. Would expect that you make the 'Startup & Recovery' settings as asked.

3. Standard Disk Management view/snap

All right.


Got the views you wanted.
Looks just like it did in safe mode.
Snaps below.
There were no archived messages.



Did you want me to disable automatic restart now?
The link you gave is for windows 8.
What about this one?
