CHKDSK/Blue Screen of Death/Restart Loop

Messages

:cry: alright bare with me....

My brothers downloaded some kind of virus I guess. I come back from the weekend and its gone to ****.
My laptop is a Dell vostro 1510. It's a Windows Vista Business 32bit. It's the original os. And it's from 2006.

I turn on the computer. It starts doing the CHKDSK which is fine because it finishes. And then says it's going to restart the computer. It does that and it restarts it. It gets to the black screen with the green scrolling bar on the bottom. Then it goes to the welcome screen with the spiraling circle. Then you would think that the sign in icon comes up. but instead comes up black screen with the white cursor. And thennnnn BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH. Restarts. And begins at the CHKDSK part again.

Help me please :cry:

LOL Thats one for you. Try this:


f you create a recovery DVD, you may be able to boot to recovery options
Create Recovery DVD. http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/141820-create-recovery-disc.html
Hard Disc Controller must be set to IDE in BIOS and Bios must be set to boot from the CD Boot Priority - Change

The Vista recovery disk is used to boot Vista when it won't boot - to run Startup Repair, System Restore, access a Command Line, Recover using a Vista Backup Image, etc.
System Recovery Options. Choose an option tht will not cause you to lose your stuff.

If Vista will not start now, boot the Recovery CD to run Startup Repair which automates System Restore as well as numerous other tests including System File Checker which can repair system files which are not corrupted beyond repair.

If Vista still will not start, try booting into Safe Mode to run sfc /scannow to repair System files.

Below is a bulletin distributed by MS to explain the start up procedure when Windows will not boot.
Startup Repair. Startup Repair is a Windows recovery tool that can fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files, that might prevent Windows from starting. Startup Repair is located on the System Recovery Options menu, which is on the Windows Vista installation disc. If your computer has preinstalled recovery options, it might also be stored on your computer's hard disk. For more information, see Startup Repair: frequently asked questions and What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista? If your computer does not include Startup Repair, your computer manufacturer might have customized or replaced the tool. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.
Change restart settings in safe mode. If your computer is stuck in a loop where Windows fails, attempts to restart, and then fails again repeatedly, restart your computer in safe mode and select the Disable automatic restart on system failure checkbox. For more information, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).
Reinstall. If no other options have solved the problem, and you are sure that your computer's hardware is functioning normally, you might need to reinstall Windows. A custom (clean) installation of Windows will permanently delete all of the files on your computer and reinstall Windows, so only use this option if all other recovery options have been unsuccessful. After the installation, you will need to reinstall your programs and restore your files from backup copies. For more information, see Installing and reinstalling Windows**.

I tried starting up the laptop in safe mode btw because I don't have any rewritable CDs. And it's getting stuck on loaded: \windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys is that normal?


Then it just restarted

And then black screen. Then blue screen of death

If you got to start up repair, use it. It does not always work and if it does not we can try another step.

I have the exact problem. I uploaded microsoft.net framework 4 to be able to use a tax program (profile app) gpsetup.exe. My laptop crashed shortly. Initially i thought that the HD was fried given laptop was old and ran wondows xp. I then used a newer laptop with windows vista os. The same exact problem arose

Those are your anti virus and you lan. See if you could continue, those items can be replaced.
If you cannot contiue, just terminate.
