I cannot boot up my Microsoft Windows 7 due to a corrupt ntfs.sys file. I can access command prompt through computer or cd. Please help!


As you are able to access command prompt, you can run the "System File Checker" tool to repair/ replace the corrupted ntfs.sys file. To do this, follow the instructions below:
1.Restart your system and tap F8 key repeatedly until you see Advanced Boot Options menu on your screen. If you miss reaching the screen in the first attempt, repeat this step until you reach the screen.
2.On the Advanced Boot Options screen, select "Safe Mode with command prompt"
3.In the command prompt window, type "SFC /scannow" (without quotes).
Note: There is a space between C and / in the command above.

This will scan all your protected system files and replace the corrupted files with a cached copy stored in your system.
Important: Please do not close the command prompt window until the verification is 100% complete. After the process is completed, the scan results will be displayed on your screen.

To know more about System File Checker, you can refer to the following Microsoft support page:

Hope this will help you.

Im a novice Computer user, im using an R450 LG laptop. It recently just shut down and wont boot, so i want to keep the LG Smart Recovery in it as it came when i bought it. please help. SHAQ


well if it is not booting, then there are so many problems which could cause that. Corrupt Operating system, corrupt boot file, missing booting file (that can easily occur during power search or power jump), hardware problem such as hard drive failure and so on. If you are having a "welcome" screen, which means your laptop does display a "welcome" massage, but does not go pass that point, than simply press on you keyboard Alt, Ctrl, Del keys all at the same time and choose Task manager. Then choose "New Task" and type in Logon.exe. Unfortunately you will have to do it every time you start your laptop or replace Logon.exe file. I would recommend take your Laptop to a computer repair shop or the store you bought it from and ask them to fix it without deleting any of your personal data. That is called soft recovery, which means they will reinstall the operating system, but will not format a primary hard drive, so all your files will stay in tacked.

Solutions

Computer is booting from a non-bootable source

Many times this error is caused when the computer is attempting to boot from a non-bootable floppy disk or CD-ROM. First verify that no floppy diskette or CD is in the computer, unless you are attempting to boot from a diskette.

Note: This error has also been known to occur when a memory stick is in a card reader and the computer is attempting to boot from it. If you have any card reader or flash reader make sure that no memory stick is inside the computer. Additionally disconnect all USB drives, cameras, ipods, iphones, etc. from the computer.

If you are attempting to boot from a floppy diskette and are receiving this error message it is likely that the diskette does not have all the necessary files or is corrupt.

If you are attempting to install Windows XP or Windows 2000 and are receiving this error message as the computer is booting verify that your computer BIOS has the proper boot settings. For example, if you are attempting to run the install from the CD-ROM make sure the CD-ROM is the first boot device, and not the hard disk drive.

Second, when the computer is booting you should receive the below prompt.

Press any key to boot from the CD

Important: When you see this message press any key such as the Enter key immediately, otherwise it will try booting from the hard drive and likely get the NTLDR error again.

Note: If you are not receiving the above message and your BIOS boot options are set properly it's also possible that your CD-ROM drive may not be booting from the CD-ROM properly. Verify the jumpers are set properly on the CD-ROM drive.

Why do it the hard way? If your HDD is bad, most probably the system files are corrupted too and getting/making a bootable CD from the HDD files is just wasting your effort. If you laptop CD/DVD drive is still good, then use the options below: -

1. Go to any torrents site download "hp oem xp" disc from the site & burn the bootable image to a CDR.

2. Go the the Hp support Site & download the XP drivers for your Laptop model.

3. Then you can do a new installations on your Laptop.

Hope it helps.

To boot to a CD you need to do the following:

1. Put in the CD
2. Restart the computer
3. Press any key when it says "Press any key to boot from CD"

If you do not get to step 3, you will need to enter your BIOS settings area.

Restart the machine again and start pressing the key to get into your BIOS setup utility. This key varies between companies ( Delete key, F1, F2, F3) so try those one at a time.

Once in the BIOS utility, use the arrow keys to get to Advanced BIOS settings.

Make sure your CDROM drive is listed as the first boot device.

Press ESC to go back to the Main menu then choose Save and Exit.

The system should now reboot and give you the boot to CD option I mentioned earlier.

Miscellaneous corruption
Before trying any of the below recommendations it's recommend that you attempt to load the last known good configuration. Additional information about doing this can be found on document CH000626.
Corrupt boot.ini file
This issue is often caused when the boot.ini is missing or improperly configured. This issue often arises after a user has recently added or removed an operating system on the computer or added or removed hard disk drives in the computer.

Microsoft Windows XP users:
If the boot.ini is severely corrupted or missing a user running Microsoft Windows XP can rebuild the boot.ini to resolve this issue. Additional information about rebuilding the boot.ini can be found on document CH000648.
Microsoft Windows NT and Windows 2000 users:
To restore the original boot.ini file in Microsoft Windows NT or Windows 2000 you will need an ERD and follow the below steps. If you do not have an ERD you will be unable to follow these steps.
  1. Boot the computer with your Windows NT three setup diskettes or the Windows 2000 setup disc.
  2. In the setup menu, type R to start the repair.
  3. When prompted for the ERD diskette insert the diskette and inspect the startup environment.
Missing or corrupt ntoskrnl.exe file
If the ntoskrnl.exe file is corrupt or missing this can also generate the error. To restore this file follow the below steps.
  1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue.
  2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key.
  3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console.
  4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password.

  7. Type exit to reboot the computer.
Windows NT installed on a partition bigger then 7.8GB
If you are running Microsoft windows NT 4.0 on a partition larger than 7.8GB this issue can occur if the boot files are located outside this limitation. When this error occurs your computer will have the error message as shown below.
OS Loader v4.01
Disk I/O error status=00000001
Windows NT could not start because the below file is missing or corrupt: winnt\system32\Ntoskrnl.exe
Please reinstall a copy of the above file.
If your system partition is larger than 7.8GB you will need to delete the partition and recreate the partition to 7.8GB or less. Additional information about this issue can be found on Microsoft KB Q224526.
Corrupted hard disk drive or severely corrupted Windows
Attempt to check the hard disk drive for any errors by running the chkdsk program. To do this follow the below steps.
  1. Insert the Microsoft Windows XP CD. Note: If you have a recovery CD or a restore CD and not a Microsoft Windows XP CD it is likely the below steps will not resolve your issue.
  2. Reboot the computer, as the computer is starting you should see a message to press any key to boot from the CD. When you see this message press any key.
  3. In the Microsoft Windows XP setup menu press the R key to enter the recovery console.
  4. Select the operating system you wish to fix, and then enter the administrator password.
  5. Once at the recovery console type chkdsk /r
  6. Once completed type exit and see if issue is resolved.
If after trying all of the above steps you are still encountering the same issue it's likely that Windows is severely corrupted and it is recommended you attempt to reinstall Windows. Additional information about erasing the computer and starting over can be found on document CH000186.
Finally, if during the Windows installation you encounter errors it's likely that your hard disk drive is bad.
