    Srttrail.txt repair loop error


    Hi guys,
    My display port monitor stopped working randomly today and usually i restart or just plug & unplug the cable and it starts working again.
    Well today I tried doing so and it didn't work so I tried using HDMI, VGA etc which made me restart the computer 4-5 times in a row.
    After the 6th restart it said windows repairing etc then got at a screen which said this.
    I've googled it spent over 2 hours trying to fix it from doing what is said on the windows forums reddit, etc. A lot of people give up and just reformat the computer but I can't afford to do so.
    I have preformed a system restore which failed. Tried some commands in cmd, tried startup repair - I even tried running it in safe mode which failed.
    Has anyone experienced this before?

    EDIT: I am not sure if this picture of DISKPART helps at all - Maybe the bootmgr is on the wrong partition?
    Also why can I not change directories to C:\.
    What is X: ?


    Thanks

    You've listed the disks, but what are the partitions?
    To get the partitions enter following commands for each disk
    Code:
    select disk 0
    list partition
    select disk 1
    list partition

    I should've seen this earlier, you're using MBR instead of GPT, unfortunately I'm not very familiair with MBR.

    Try to boot from Win10PE Windows 10 Recovery Tools - Bootable Rescue Disk - Windows 10 Forums, if you can boot from there then there are more possibilities opening for fixing this problem

    Okay I'm at this screen that looks like a desktop with heaps of apps and a howling wolf as the background.

    What do I do from here?

    Here's a pic of all the hard drives if it helps



    Sorry for the bad quality it was taken with a phone.

    Sometimes the cause behind this issue is the corruption or malfunctioning of registry hives under SYSTEM and SOFTWARE branches of registry configuration.
    To be clear there could be also other causes.

    Try this (probably) fix.
    Under advanced options open commandprompt as administrator

    Attachment 80340

    In the Command Prompt window, type following commands and press Enter key after each:
    cd %windir%\system32\config

    ren system system.001

    ren software software.001

    Attachment 80339

    You can now close the Command Prompt window, which takes you to Windows Recovery Environment screen.
    Select Continue option to get into your operating system.
    After a reboot, hopefully the problem is solved.

    X: is the RAM drive, used in the recovery environment.

    There is a drive letter to the System Reserved partition. You assigned it? If so, why? Please let us know.
    There is also a 450 MB recovery partition .... which is common to GPT disks, but the disk is MBR. Have you made any changes there? Let us know it, too.

    In the present situation, you ....

    If it is really a MBR disk, then as the 100 MB partitin is marked as active, this action will add the startup entries there.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Hi,


    I will try lifetec's solution first then I'll attempt yours.

    Yes I have made changes inside DISK PART. Is there a way to set it back to default? I work in a IT Helpdesk myself - I am tech savvy when it comes to software / hardware solutions but command line troubleshooting I am still an amateur.
    Thanks
