    Vista won't boot, System restore/Startup repair can't fix

    The machine starts to boot normally, but stays on the green scrolling bar loading splash screen window. It doesn't freeze, it just never moves on from that screen. It will not load in safe mode or last known good config either. I've run hardware diags and they all pass with flying colors.

    Startup Repair listed the following as the problem details but was unable to fix problem.

    Problem Event Name:Startup repairV2

    Problem Signature 01: AutoFailure

    Prob Sig 02: 6.0.6001.18000.6.0.6001.18000

    Prob Sig 03: 6

    Prob Sig 04: 786444

    Prob Sig 05: Unknown

    Prob Sig 06: NoRootCause

    Prob Sig 07: 0

    Prob Sig 08: 2

    Prob Sig 09: WrpRepair

    Prob Sig 10: 87

    Is there anything else I can try besides reloading Vista onto the laptop? Thanks.

    Hi welcome to the forum. Sorry you have problems.
    A couple of questions first I'm afraid.
    Have you had any heavy downloads lately?
    Or computer gaming?
    How much memory do you have ib the computer?
    What, if anything were you doing before it went wrong?
    Thank you

    Does it otherwise swith on & off OK?

    Hi kesume.

    Most recent downloads were Microsoft updates I ran on it a couple weeks ago.
    We don't game with the machine because it is a work machine.
    It has 4gb ram.
    It switches on and off just fine other than getting stuck at the splash screen.
    The user had it on in the office the day before, just doing his work (word, excel, outlook, accounting software via citrix, etc.) and it seemed to be working fine he says.

    It behaves the same in or out of the doc with or without any external devices plugged into it. It seems as though vista is corrupted some how.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Hi,
    If you haven't done this could you try it please. I know sounds a little strange!

    First:- Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove all USB devices .
    We do not need all the accessories, to test the computer!

    Disconnect the power adaptor (AC unit), remove the battery, then ‘Press and Hold’ the power button for at least 30 seconds.

    Reconnect the AC power adaptor unit (but not the battery), Press the Powerbutton, see if it boots & opens.

    If you are still having problems , if you are able, could you perform a clean boot?
    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7
    Hope this helps.
    Thank you.

    Morning kesume, thanks for your reply this morning. I did as you asked and the tablet is bahaving the same this morning, gets stuck at the splash screen after removing battery and ac power and holding power button down for over 30 sec, then plugged back in w/out battery and turned on.

    Hi,
    Thank you for your reply. It was worth a try! Could you please now try the boot operation?
    Try that in safe mode, as tutorial below
    Safe Mode
    Please report back findings.

    OK, so I can't try clean boot because the computer never gets past the splash screen.

    When I try to boot into safe mode, it stops at loading drivers, crcdisk.sys is the last file it lists as loaded.
