Windows 7 Repair Loop if startup options are checked RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey guys I got an odd one hopefully someone has heard of.

    I have an HP DV6 Laptop with an AMD A-8 and 6G of Ram and 650 HDD.  When booting the computer up it would constantly go into a startup repair.  Eventually it would let me in and it did it about 96% of the times I rebooted.

    I have already reformatted the PC once and ran a chkdsk and everything is fine.  I also ran memtest and results were fine.  Well after I got back into windows I checked the msconfig and disabled everything and booted it about 7-8 times with no issues so I thought I was in the clear.  Well I installed eDrawings to view CAD files and when it rebooted after install it continues to go through the loop only this time it prompts for the repair, has a loading bar going across, then blank screen and never comes on.

    I tried booting it into safe mode but after the safe mode text scrolls it says please wait.  Has been close to an hour stuck like that now.  I am guessing my OS is hardcore corrupt, only thing I can think of.  Considering I did this after a restore do you think it could be something else?
