Windows 8 Scanning and Repairing drive (C:) 27%

    General discussion

  • I was on Tuneup Utilities 2013 and I clicked on scan and repair registry or whatever, then when I restarted the PC it won't WORK. This is what happened:

    Not able to even get to the login of Windows 8. When I restart my comp I get the Scanning and repairing at 27% and it doesn't improve, when I turn it off  again my comp goes into this "preparing automatic repair" and never stops then it says "diagnosing your pc" afterwards I get this window that says "Windows couldn't load correctly" and then it asks if I want to restore yo my previously restored point. When I click on restore nothing shows up except the start up screen when I first boot up my pc the "ASUS" logo and it doesn't change.

    I NEED HELP!!!

    My windows 8 is a 64-bit, if that matters.

  • You must not had created a restore point, in windows 8 you must first create one. I had similar, and just recently I discovered it was a bad SATA circuit board luckily for me I created restore points and filehistory. If problem continues after a new install,  Check cables or buy new ones, possibly PSU, dust. I know this sounds drastic but I reinstalled My OS a few times with this problem and now that I removed that old SATA quick release no more scanning of drives.
