Question about eMachines T5224 PC Desktop

2 Answers

Vista is stuck in a startup loop where recovery and restore do no good. It started with a dll problem, I tried to use recovery console, it did no good, I did a full factory restore, and afterwards it didn't want to start windows at all, so I made a ubcd4win (I just went with default plugins) disk, did some reovery work and got it to the point where I was able to run vista recovery, then ran a full scan with malware bytes, and removed two trojans, it seemed to be back to 100 percent, but after a day or two, it slowed back down and still showed dll's missing, so I ran chkdsk and left it running overnight and now windows won't start at all ( I should explain I am doing this as a favor for my neighbors, so I don't know exactly what happened betwwen chkdsk running and the next day when I was told it was acting up I don't know, are there any good plugins for ubcd4win or bootable iso recovery programs you could recommend, if so how exactly do I add boot options or plug ins to ubcd4win, or should I tell them they have to get a new copy of vista? I checked and emachines no longer offers a recovery disk for this model, maybe a gateway recocery windows disk? I am at the end of my rope with this freakin thing, but I really hate looking like I broke it in the process of fixing it.Also freeware would be preferred, because I spend all my money on college bills andd they are currently laid off. thank you in advance.

    It seems to me like a viral infection is also giving some contribution. It kinda like bar311 activity, constant restart. And a vundo infection for some dll is missing, it has many look up dll if you delete one then it will replace with new name. It seems reside on your system restore. Try to run task manager, system restore, command prompt it is disabled to check if it is running on background. You could try to do your first step again except chkdsk. I only allow checkdisk when installing OS and recover from sudden shutdown of machines.

I feel your pain. The first thing I'm going to tell you is no matter how smart you are don't let other people know about it. Keep that good will, " I can take a look at your computer" mouth shut because (this is from many years of diagnosing and repairing other people's computer problems), you have no idea what has been done to it before you get it. Worst then that they don't even know what they did to it. "Well I was driving three states away when all of a sudden this blue screen appears and said I violated a chipmunk or I was violated by a chipmunk, I'm not really sure but hear it is. See you when it's fixed in ten minutes..
It's like explaining how to fly a plane to someone who's never seen or heard of a plane.

Ok forgive me for I digress.
Since there are to many steps to list here try going to the site listed below.

    I was contemplating a repair on a friends computer and remembered your dilemma.
    I wanted to know if you resolved the issue or have you came up with a viable alien abduction scenario as a way out of the repair.
    Please let me know if your still having problems and maybe I can help a fellow do gooder in distress.

This can happen from an executable or other system files failing to load properly such as a video driver, etc. Try booting into safe mode by pressing F8 on start up. Also on rebooting enter system configuration and set the start up option to first boot from CD then USB, and finally Hard drive. This should then allow you to install from CD. Then put windows CD in drive and when you reboot you should see boot from CD press any key, located in the upper left of your screen be fast as this is only displayed for about 5 seconds. I have had similar problems and this has worked.

Try this:

Restore Point:



Try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.



Try a System Restore once there, to pick a Restore Point before your problem..



Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a different time > Next > etc

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



If Restore does not work and you do not have a Microsoft Vista DVD, make a Bootable Repair Disk to do a Startup Repair:



Download the ISO file at the supplied link, and make a Bootable Startup Repair Disk from it.



Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.



At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu.



When you have changed that, insert that Bootable Disk you have made in the Drive, and reboot.

Above link shows what the process looks like, and a how-to, as it loads to the Repair Options.



Neosmart contains the contents of the Windows Vista DVD\'s "recovery center," as we\'ve come to refer to it. It cannot be used to install or reinstall Windows Vista, and just serves as a Windows PE interface to recovering your PC. Technically, one could re-create this installation media with freely-downloadable media from Microsoft (namely the Microsoft WAIK kit, a multi-gigabyte download); but it\'s decent of Microsoft to make this available to Windows\' users who might not be capable of creating such a thing on their own.

It makes a very good Vista Startup Repair Disk.



You can do a Startup Repair, System Restore, etc from it.


Note: It is not a reinstall disc.

Msvcrt.dll error message(Msvcrt.dll error message("the procedure entry except handler4 common could not be located dinamic link library msvcrt.dll")


Two possible solutions.
Roll back system with System Restore. Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


Try disabling startup programs. Go to Start > Run (search in Win 7) and type MSConfig. In Startup tab, uncheck anything that you don't want Windows to load automatically. It will make Windows boot faster and use less resources while running. This just disables them in startup. Programs will still load, but when only you initiate.

Hi i go to load windows n it comes up corrupt n error code OxOOOO14c n wont let me do anything wont even let me load my recovery disc or windows support disc


You mean error Oxcoooo14c? That means your system registry is corrupt, or even missing.

You can try this; and how to get Recovery Media info is also included:

Download the ISO file at the supplied link, and make a Bootable Startup Repair Disk from it.

Go into your Bios/Setup, or Boot Menu, at startup, and change the Boot Order to make the DVD/CD drive 1st in the Boot Order, then reboot with the disk in the Drive.

At startup/power on you should see at the bottom of the screen either F2 or DELETE, to go into Bios/Setup, or F12 for the Boot Menu.

When you have changed that, insert that Bootable Disk you have made in the Drive, and reboot.

It makes a very good Vista Startup Repair Disk.

You can do a Startup Repair, System Restore, etc from it.


It is NOT a reinstall disk.


And the 32bit is what comes normally on a computer, unless 64bits requested.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



How to obtain Vista recovery Media and/or use the Vista Recovery Partition on your computer to put it back to Factory Settings.

There is no legal free Vista download available.

Contact your Computer Manufacturer and ask them to send you a set of Vista Recovery disk/s.


They normally do that for a small $ cost.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Also, ask them if you have a Recovery Partition on your Computer/Laptop to restore it to Factory settings.
See if a Manual came with the computer, or go to the Manufacturer's website, email or phone them for info on how to do a Recovery.

Normally, you would press F10 or F11 at Startup to commence the Recovery Process..


Another way I have seen on some models is to tap F8, and go to a list of Startup options, and start a Factory Standards Recovery from in there, by selecting the Repair computer option.

Try the F8 Option to get into Safe Mode and try to do a System Restore:

http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/windows-vista/using-windows-vista-system-restore/
Do System Restore in Safe Mode, if unable to do it in Normal Mode.
Try tapping F8 at startup, and from the list of startup selections, select Safe Mode by using UP Arrow Key to go there > then hit Enter.

Try a System Restore once there, to pick a Restore Point before your problem..

Click Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore > pick a different time > Next > etc

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If that does not work > Try the Recovery disk to do a Startup Repair/System Restore > if that fails, reinstall Vista.

Corrupted user32.dll. boots to a blue screen,


You can try to do a system restore using the system recovery.

There are different ways for doing a system recovery on XP computers and on Vista or Windows 7 computer.

Assuming you are using Windows Vista
On boot press the F11 key repeatedly, When you reach the Recovery manager screen select Advance options.

Select the option do restore the computer to an earlier time.

It will show you the restore points

Select the best restore point and try to do a restore

If system restore does not work then you will have to follow the same steps to perform a system recovery by selecting the option to restore the computer to its original factory condition.

  • 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.

Downgrading from windows 7 beta to windows vista


Did you happen to make a recovery point? Vista is pretty good about this. Restart your system and push f8 until you get to the recovery and troubleshooting. Then just use recovery console and restore it to a previous point. If you cant do this you might need to do a fresh install of vista.
