    Startup repair

    Having a problem with my Dell laptop with Windows 7 OS. On startup it goes to a “Startup Repair” window. After it runs it indicates that it cannot be repaired. Under the “View Problem Detail” I found the following:
    Problem Event Name – Startup repair offline


    Problem Signature 01 – 6.1.7600.16385

    Problem Signature 02 – 6.1.7600.16385

    Problem Signature 03 – unknown

    Problem Signature 04 – 21200706

    Problem Signature 05 – AutoFailOver

    Problem Signature 06 – 9

    Problem Signature 07 – CorruptFile


    OC Version – 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1 Local ID – 1033
    Start Repair cannot determine cause.
    Ran System Restore three times with different dates and saw “An unexpected errpr (0X8000ffff).
    Running out of options – any suggestions? Do I have to do a factory disk restore? Would like to avoid that if possible.
    Thanks,
    Richard Spring

    Try the System Restore with your a/v disabled.

    If that fails try the restore in safe mode with the a/v disabled.

    Have you tried running SFC /SCANNOW from an elevated command prompt?

    Any chance you may have created an Image prior to the problem occuring? If not. consider this after repairing. You would already be working again with problem solved. The system restore may work. Just choose a restore point prior to the first time you noticed the problem. There ia a chance you will have to reapply some updates afterward. If so do just one update at a time and see if the problem returns. If so you may have isolated the problem.

    Thanks for your suggestions.
    I tried all and ended up doing a factory reset. Wiped everything and am in the process of rebuilding the files.
    Sometimes it is better to bite the bullet and start fresh.

    Thank you again,

    Be sure once you are done, start Imaging. I always create new Up To Date Images when something changes in my OS. With Up To Date Iamges you can restore to before a problem occurs in about 10 minutes.

    Read many different threads on imaging in the Security and Backups forums. Search for Imaging. You will get lots of hits. There are step by step instructions for both Acronis True Image Home 2011 and Macrium Reflect. Both of these was created during the old Lounge days so the images are all grouped at the bottom rather than where they originally appeared.
