Boot log 1525


venkatachalam,

How to Enable Boot Logging in Windows By Dan Gookin from Troubleshooting Your PC For Dummies, 3rd Edition
Two event log files that come in handy for troubleshooting your PC are the boot log files. These files are created when you specify boot logging as a start-up option. The files are named either ntbtlog.txt or bootlog.txt, depending on how old your PC is. These files, found in the Windows folder, list the success or failure of various pieces of Windows as it's loaded into memory from the PC's mass storage system.
You can enable or disable boot logging by using the MSCONFIG utility. Follow these steps in Windows 7 and Windows Vista:
  1. Press Win+R to summon the Run dialog box.
  2. Type msconfig and press Enter.
  3. In Windows Vista, type the administrator's password or click the Continue button.
  4. Click the Boot tab.
  5. Place a check mark by the item Boot Log.
  6. Click OK.
  7. Click the Restart button to restart now. Otherwise, click Exit without Restart.
    The logging doesn't take effect until you restart Windows, and you have no reason to do so immediately unless you really want to see the boot log.
In Windows XP, you can enable boot logging by pressing the F8 key when Windows first starts and choose the item Enable Boot Logging.
The boot log is overwritten every time you start Windows. And, the log is produced only when you turn on the boot logging option.
What can you do with the boot log? You can check for the failed installation of certain pieces of Windows or device drivers. The drivers or files are obviously flagged in the log. Because you know the filename, you can then either disable it from loading or look for an update.
  • Activating the boot log in Windows 7 or Windows Vista means that you configured your PC for a custom start-up. If that bothers you, disable the boot log after you cull whatever useful information you need from the boot log file; repeat the steps used to enable boot logging, but in Step 5, remove the check mark.
  • Traditionally, computer logs are all text files. They may have the filename extension log, or they may use txt instead.
  • You can search for log files by using the Windows Search command. Simply look for files named *log* anywhere on the hard drive, including system, hidden, and non-indexed locations.
  • Most log files are in plain text, but the text may be organized by using the XML, or Extensible Markup Language. XML is merely a way to organize information, and although XML files are readable as text, to get the most from the information, you should use an XML reader, such as the Event Viewer program.
  • If you find the file boot.ini on your Windows XP computer, you can enable boot logging by modifying the file. Open it in Notepad and look for the line that contains this text:
    Windows="Windows XP (That's only a portion of the line; in the file, it's longer). Add the text /bootlog to the end of the line. Save the file. When you restart Windows, boot logging takes place automatically.

Computer would not booy up. now it does but the password does not work


which operating system ant what type of computer??
Restart your computer

When you boot up to the log in screen type in administrator as user to log in if you cant log in

during the boot up process you will see on the screen for a short amount of time press a certain key to enter set up press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS scroll down to set user password or supervisor password you can change or remove your password from there
also
During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup
Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS you can load failsafe defaults or load optimized defaults ,press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

also
how to reset or clear the BIOS password is to physically remove the power from the computer by disconnecting the power plug and then removing the Cmos battery for 30 minutes from the motherboard. Another way is to reset the clear CMOS jumper on the motherboard itself. Both of the 2 methods mentioned works because most motherboards use a battery to sustain the BIOS/CMOS settings for the motherboards PROM chip. So by cutting off cmos the battery power, the BIOS/CMOS settings will be erased
or if using XP
During the boot process tap the f8 button three times this will boot into safe mode where the only things working will be your mouse and keyboard enabling you to attempt to repair your computer Advanced Boot Options screen appears. Select the Safe Mode option using the up and down arrow keys, then press the ENTER key. Choose "Windows XP Home/Professional", depending on the version of the operating system. Press ENTER. Shortly, the welcome screen should show.
Log in as "Administrator". Click Yes to not use System Restore Mode.
Click the Start button. Choose Run and type in "control userpasswords" (without the quotes). Click OK.

Select the "Administrator" user. Click Change my password. Enter a new password in the corresponding text boxes. Click OK. Write this password down and store it in a secure place Close the User Accounts window and restart Windows.

hope this helps you

I need help getting past my windows account user password. please help!


If it is asking for a password, then you will have to enter the password. Othewise, you won't get past it.
If you have Windows XP, you can start in safe mode and log on as administrator--chances are it's not password protected. Most people forget to put a password on it. Then you can change or remove your password.

Not able to "log in" in my Dell laptop


Your userinit.exe file is probably missing or damaged.

Insert your Windows XP CD and restart the computer.
At the prompt 'Press any key to boot from CD', press Enter.
Windows Setup will load. This takes a few minutes.

After Setup loads, press R on your keyboard to enter the Recovery Console.
At the prompt to select 'Which Windows installation would you like to log onto', on your keyboard press the number of the installation. This will usually be 1 unless you are dual-booting.
You will get to a prompt C:\WINDOWS

You now have to locate your CD drive. The CD drive letter will depend on if/how your hard drive is partitioned and the number of CD drives. To do this:

Type D: and press Enter
If there is a valid D: drive type in dir

You are looking for a listing of files that will look something like this:
AUTORUN.INF
DOCS
DOTNETFIX
I386
etc.

If D: doesn't give this result try typing in E: followed by dir
If E: doesn't give this result try typing in F: followed by dir
etc.

When you have located the CD drive type in the following:

expand i386\userinit.ex_ C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32 /y

(Note the spaces: after expand; before C:; before /y
and that's a letter i in front of 386
and that's an underscore after ex)

Press the Enter key.
You should get a confirmation that the file was expanded.

Restart the computer by pressing the power button, remove the CD, and boot up normally.

Dell Inspirion 1000 power short circuit


Good Evening:


Hope that you are wellJ

  • There appears to be a shortage in one of your lines to you computer. But, before you replace anything, try these methods.

  • Shut down the computer.

  • Remove any CDs, DVDs or external storage devices (like USB keys or external hard drives) from the computer, if any are present, then press the power button to turn the computer on.

  • Press and hold the <F8> key as your computer starts. You need to press <F8> before the Windows logo appears.

  • If the Windows logo appears, and the system still fails to boot to Windows, shut down the computer and try again.

  • From the Advanced Boot Options menu, use the arrow keys to highlight Repair Your Computer, then press <ENTER>.

  • Click to select your language, and then click NEXT.

  • Log in as a user with administrative rights, and click OK.

  • From the Choose a recovery tool menu, click Startup Repair .
  • Once completed, click FINISH.
  • Click RESTART.

If I can be of further assistance, please let me know

And, remember; always include the type of Operating System and the type of computer you own, when you submit your questions. It simply makes for much faster solutions.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Shuts off at boot up screen?


Start the computer in safe mode (tap F8 immediately after turning it on until you see the option of how to boot)

If it successfully boots into windows, you have an issue with either driver conflicts and/or viruses. If it still restarts itself, you most likely have a hardware issue (bad hard drive, motherboard, etc)

Windows does not start successfully


Hello,
Boot to safe mode. Then log in as administrator. Open My Computer, rightclick on C drive. Click properties. Select Tools and then click Error Checking. Select (Automatically fix file system errors) and then click start.

It will ask that you restart the computer. Upon restart it will run a check disk and if there are any file system error that may be affecting your boot up problem, it will fix them. If that was the problem, it should start up after this process. If not then let me know so we can try something else.

Thanks,
Lolita
