If your startup repair options fail. There can be two ways to save your data1) You can use a Live CD of any Linux Like Ubuntu and get in the system and copy all your data to an external HDD or thumb drive.2) You can disconnect the Original HDD and connect it to a second computer as a slave drive, and copy all the data that you need and then connect it back and do a fresh install.Both the above methods will save your data with guarantee!If you still have issues feel free to revert back here and I will guide you through.
A) see if you can check hard drive using a utility disk from the maker of the hard drive-most have a bootable iso file that you can burn a cd that will boot the computer and let you check the drive. The ultimate boot disk may also let you do this.ORIf the drive has a fault at the beginning it will not work - you may be able to use disk utilities to move the partition to an ares not faulty and also resize the partition. You may be able to do this if you remove the hard drive from the laptop and place it in the a desktop computer as a second drive and use the administrative tools and hard drive utilities of the OS to do this. This will also let you check the drive. This may provide an opportunity to strip the data of the drive in case anything goes wrong- USB drive as a destination etc.But if faulty the only long term solution is to replace the driveegIt sounds as if HDD is faulty the easiest way may be to buy a replacement and replace it and then reinstall windows from your system recovery disks or download from microsoft's website. If you have an external hard enclosure you can place the old hard drive in it or use a usb adapter to try to recover files. PREFACE: Working with a brand new uninitialized 1TB Seagate HDD which doesn't have anything on it yet nor is partitioned or formatted yet.PROBLEM: MY LCD display monitor wasn't getting any video from the BIOS (only a black screen).
All my HP Pavilion P2-1123w did was remain stuck in a continuous loop of powering OFF and then back ON about every 20 seconds.SOLUTION: Holding in F11 during power ON as suggested by Sami Morgan worked like magic for me and got everything working normally again. I was really getting desperate and just about to give up all hope.
Thanks so much for sharing this solution Sami Morgan!by. From The Desk Of What Little I Know.First of all for all other lap top brands, your OS on your HD is Corrupted.The most important thing you can do is you can replace the Hard Drive.You want to save all your precious files.You all should have made your restore disks for each individual lap topNow you have your new HD in the lap top, and you use your disks to formatthat new one, all automatically while you follow the written instructions onyour screen. You will have a factory new lap top, eact to the day you took it out of the boe.If you don't have the restore disks. Phone your lap top support and tell themyou need them, and they will make them for you.Remember you need to retrieve all of you stuff first as soon as you can.Some of the HP restore options might not work. Stop and replace the HD.To go any further, you will erase the drive.If it is erased now. You might try EASE US software.I wrote over my storage drive, 415 GB of precious stuff. I got all of it backin the original format it was in.
Some software will just give you RAW data back.don't ever go there. Get 'Ease US.' If you don't have an HP, then everything from here on is a Question Mark foryour answer. Just replace the HD with a new one, and then hook up the oldone to your factory restored Lap Top as an External Storage drive.If the original HD is not corrupted, it will run well and then you can retrieveall your precious things, photos, Mp3 and anything else you want.The purpose of this note, is to try to save all your files.If none of these options can save them.
Turn off the Lap Top.Take out the Hard Drive. Replace it with a new one, Reboot it whilepressing F2 and then select boot order. You want to boot from the disks youshould have made, or a USB.
If you didn't do that, you will have to order themfrom HP. Once you get this done, use your dads drive as a USB device.Plug it into the lap top and save all the files.Reboot While pressing F11You are going to need an empty external drive. This is to save all your dads files.Some of these Restore options might not work, so you need a separate USB or storage driveto send all your files to.What you are doing is to find a way to save all your Dads stuff he likes everythinghe stored on the Lap Top.When your lap top went into Diagnostic Repair, it did that to let you know the OS and OR theHard Drive is corrupted. Diagnostic repair doesn't repair anything, it just lets you knowthe OS is Corrupted.After you find a way to get all of your dad's stuff saved to the external drive, then you mustThen press F2 on the next reboot.
You want to select one of the Tests for the HD.Smart Test, and then the Short DST test. If it passes your HD is good.Sounds like to me, you need a new HD because it's over three to five years it's best to replace it.You can Press F2 while the lap top is rebooting at any time. It's diagnostics are separatefrom the OS, and run well.Select System Restore and choose a System Restore point.If that won't work, then select Reset the PC without loosing your files option.If that won't work, then select Reset PC. You will be given a chance to saveyour files. You can choose between Automatic or select the ones you want.If one docent work try the other. Remember you are just trying these optionsto save all your dads files, photos, mp3 ect ect.Then you Press F2 and test your dads HD. Method 1:Disconnect all the devices connected to the computer except keyboard and mouse and check if you are able to boot to the start screen.Method 2:If the computer fails to boot, try performing safe mode and perform clean boot.Try to boot into Safe Mode with Networking.
No worries mate. All HP laptops built since 2013 on up have this very problem.I have the 2014 HP x360 with 5500 u i7 Intel CPU 2.40 GHz 2.40 GHz with 16 GB Ram.If you phone HP, Tec Support will tell you not to have any hope for any expectations that thisproblem can be fixed. Quote and End Quote.My logical opinion is that HP will have to re-tool all it's future computers to fix it.Most of the hp mother boards are made by Asus. Centos 7 iso.
We might be able to getthen to do a replace ment for us, however think of the cost of that!In the meantime, you and everyone else who has a recently manufactured HP Computer, is goingto be stuck with the lap top or PC rebooting into the Diagnostic Repair Loop.Say you have a hard shut down. A file fragment is now displaced. You install your favorite anti-malware, (my opinion Emsisoft is the ultimate end of them all The Best and most rewarded of them all.The Emsisoft Internet Security Suite works seamlessly with my windows 8.1)HP Diagnostic Repair, unfortunately for all of us end users, as you have found out already, will recognize something is missing in the written codes of everything you have, and then everything new you install, and then all those great programs we were able to seamlessly run on our older machine will now trigger on the next reboot, HP DIAGNOSTIC REPAIR. By now we all know it doesn'trepair anything, nor log the initial problem that the Computer encountered. The only way out of that loop is to press F 11.
And then select any of HP's Restore options. HP Diagnostic repair is imbedded into the whole Architecture of the computer. All the pre-installed software, The Mother Board, and all the other hardware. Update Hello.This is NGC4414.I wrote a lengthy note about Diagnostic Repair.I'm back to let you all New HP owners, and starting at 2013 owners,Diagnostic Repair is embedded in the entire HP Architecture.The mother board, the hard drive (s) all the HP software and anything else HP that youcan think of.Once it begins the loop just press F 11 on the reboot. There you will find many options to how torestore your HP. That is not a solution, Your HP is going to spend the rest ofyour remaining hours mostly in 'Diagnostic Repair', and 'Your PC ran into trouble.'
It's just the way it is. By now you all should have got off the phone with HP Tec support, and they basicallywill tell you everyone has this new problem, and that you must not have any hope for a solution.That's because it is a hardware generated problem.Once in 'Diagnostic Repair loop', or 'Your PC ran into Trouble' the only way out ofthose two loops is by pressing F 11 during the next reboot.To help you get through this a little better, go to File History. Look down at the lower left hand cornerof the screen and you will find 'System Image Back Up'Make one after you have cleaned up your HP. That means you use your HP Restore USB or Disks and runthem. Make sure you have them. If you don't this next option will cost you.goto KillDisk.com, download their free Kill Disk Console.
Learn how to use it, and completely do theirLow Level Format. It's free, and changes all the data on the disk to 00000x0That is a cleen HD, and now you can install your HP system on that, knowing there will be no futureinterference, or a trigger set off by the disk, even though you did your factory restore.0 the drive, or use HP option to format the drive.
Select that from Refresh section. It asks you if you want to save your files, do a refresh, or do you want to get rid of all your files and reinstall or do you wantto format the disk because you are going o donate it, or throw it away. That last one is the one you want.Don't select that unless you have your restore disks. You can make them one time by going to HP Recovery Media.
Use a USB a little larger then what is needed.If you use DVD or CD re writable or write once you will need three to thirteen disks and then you will have to baby sit the HP till it's done. Then when you run a restore you have to baby sit the HP.A USB is seamless, and a walk away job. Start the HP restore from a USB and walk away, go out go to the gym, go to work, the HP will be ready for you when you get back. No worries mate. The HP is sleeping by the time you get home, just wake it up with a move of your mouse.After you do the perfect restore, and I might add I have done thousands of HP System Restores, all of theoptions, everyone of them I could select, well I add this. Now you have the HP exactly the way HP wants that HP to run. Do not change anything.
Do not add anything at all, except a free Microsoft softwareHere are solutions to some common problems with installing updates. You might be able to automatically fix some problems by running the Windows Update Troubleshooter Quote and end Quote.Boys and Girls, this little tool works. The software download is called, 'WindowsUpdateDiagnostic'That's the only added on software you should run. You will not be able to update very well or not at alluntil you run it.
Reboot, run it again. Then select automatically install updates, or do them manually.If some of them don't install, run the Windows Update Diagnostic tool again.What you want to do in all this, is have all your windows updates, as many as you possibly can before youcreate your new Image.
File History create system image works perfectly.Just remember it's a 20 minute job, don't stop it for anyreason, let it finish.Reboot a couple of times to shake it all out and down. Until you do that, your system has a bit of troubleremembering what it is. Then it's as if you didn't run it at all. Perfect, until the next time you triggerthe HP Diagnostic Repair Loop. Usualy what I have found is that Windows Updates after you reboot triggers the Diagnostic Repair loop on the way back to windows, so windows doesn't start, you know.you are now in the loop. The ground hog day movie loop.
Microsoft Startup Repair How Long Does It Take
Over and Over and Over again.In closing, I will come back and let you all know about my Transitioning my HP to UBANTU.I have a good feeling about it. No more Diagnostic repair loop. Well, after all is said and done I have hope.Other wise the final solution is to contack a Free Fee basis Attorney.
A real successful one, who does 'Class Action Suits' and only takes on a case like this, to win hundreds of millions of dollarswhich in advance he knows he will win. That is why that level of Attorney takes the case.He or She is going to win, and knows that in advance.If you think about it, everyone in the world with a 2016 HP has this very same trouble.Doomed and Doomed Again. (don't' forget, Diagnostic Repair is part of the very physical structures ofthe HP. The mother board, the Hard Drive (s) all the HP Software.Next.Next week I am going to look to installing UBANTU via USB. My hp does not have a optical drive.Sorry windows, however right now, there is no way I can return my HP for a full refund.
I just got itin November 2014. It an HP x360 dual 5500U Intel 2.46 Ghz = Quad Core at 16 GB Ram.I believe right now that is the only solution, as I told you the HP you just purchased, or got it a few months ago, is permanently designed around the Diagnostic Repair Loop, and Your PC ran into some Trouble Loop.Of hand, every now and then someone will ask me where is is I am from. Well here it is, now you all know.Sincerely Yours From NGC 4414. On e reason this may happen is the hard drive has an error at critical point in the boot up. Maybe try another hard drive or use a usb bootable linux drive if you do this and it starts it is likely to the hard drive.
You need to replace it.Once you have working drive you will need to reinstall the system etc. If you buy a similar sized hard drive you may be able to clone the recovery partition and thereby restore your system or you have made recovery disks you may be able to restore the computer quite easily and then try to take the data off the old drive. The way I fixed this problem ( to me it happened on windows 10) is that i used a bootable usb stick with 'DBAN'. DBAN (Darik's Boot and Nuke) is like an OS with which you can erase your hard drives. I used DBAN to erase my hard drive clean and then used a bootable Windows 10 usb stick to reinstall Windows. This will erase everything on your computer.but it works.
I had no choice, I have tried everything to recover my Windows but with no success before this. Hope this helps.I have done this on a Lenovo Ideapad 100 15IBD. I feel your frustration. I had been exactly where you are now for a few trial and error months.First off, from here on out use D.I.S.M. You start with your computer connected to the Internet.Next dig out your 'Command Prompt' open it with 'Administrator'You can use D.I.S.M. Periodically to check for OS Corruption. You should every time before you make changes, or download the windows updates.
I find Download Windows Updates Automatically works best for me, because I can then choose which ones I don't want.Ok.Number 2 is the first D.I.S.M. That you run.Run it first every time and run it once a month.
Hp compaq 8710p, windows 10.this thing with automatic repair happened to me and my strong advice is dont rush into anything. Please be a little bit patient. It might fix itself.i kept doing hard restarts by holding down the power button till it forced a shutdown, but just ended up with it getting stuck on the preparing.etc message. Sometimes not even a message. Just the windows loading circle going round and round.eventually i decided to go into the ROM segment by holding f10 on start up.i ran a HDD self test and memory self test. Both were ok. So all the talk about a corrupt hard drive might not be correct.
I left it overnight tried again in the morning. No joy.i needed to go out. So decided to switch it off at the power supply. When i came back 3 hours later it flipped from auto repair into diagnosing your pc. From there i did a system restore but it was unable to complete it due to a dodgy file. So i exited that and low and behold it booted normally. What a relief.so take from this what you will.
Try unplugging everything for a few hours or overnight. See what happens. You might be lucky too;)). Hi,In the first instance go to this YouTube website and follow MDTech's tutorial EXACTLY.

First try to reboot in safe mode.Uninstall any software you have installed lastly if your safe mode.Also try to boot your system with last known good os option.
Normally this option comes when you press f8 while booting.while system start it will find all hardware does it show harddisk or cd rom etc, as i read that your are going to replay harddrive.Dont replace hard drive, it seems os related problem.Connect your hard disk as a slave to some other computer and take backup of your computer data and simply re install fresh windows 8.

Hi,Hope our site Robot now allows this post, I've had to remove all previous links to websites.Search YouTube for ' How To Fix Windows 10 Stuck In Infinite Boot - No Software Needed.

You must include any spaces in the black command screen when it's open.If you get back into full Windows 10 operation mode with the above 'MDTechvideos' tutorial you will need to then search online for the Microsoft update KB4015438 through the 'Windows Update' feature on your PC. It's dated 20th March 2017. Alternatively if Windows cannot find it you can download it directly from the Microsoft website, again I'm not allowed to post direct links to it. However,there are links on the above MDTechvideo YouTube web page under my posted comments as 'Happy Tuber'The KB4015438 update is very large ( it can be up to a 1000Mb so choose carefully if on a paying by size ISP ). This update is supposed to fix the dreaded Blue Screen crash we've all experienced.Be warned though, when downloading & thereafter installing the update you will think your PC is doing nothing, WRONG the progress bar moves very slowly, it is a very, very slow background operation. I am not a PC techy so I cannot help anyone further than this. This fix worked for me on my HP 15 Pavillion Notebook hope it works for others.If this post does not get stopped as Spam by the Robot, I give up, but you will never know because it won;t be visible.
Startup Repair Taking Too Long
Here's hoping;)Regards, John in the UK. My problem of laptop getting stuck in 'preparing automatic repair' screen occurs regularly on first start up / restart following a Windows update.happened again today.
(this is on a Acer E1-510 running Windows10 vers1803).The following works for me -may work for someone else.After restart my laptop gets stuck in 'Acer explore beyond limits' screen. After Hard shutdown(hold start button till laptop turns off), then start(push start button) the laptop gets stuck in 'preparing automatic repair' screen. More hard shutdowns and starts just alternate between these 2 stuck screens. The laptop does not display a repair option screen as some sites suggest will happen after the third restart.However, if I unplug the wire to the modem, then next Start the laptop works! (even if the computer is set to also connect via wifi).
Once I see the spinning dots display after a few seconds, I know I’ve got my computer back.Somewhere I saw the suggestion that unplugging any USB connected devices, & also the power/battery briefly helps. But, for me, unplugging the modem wire is all that’s needed.Maybe this is a signal my computer is about to expire, but the method solved the problem for me the last 4 times it occurred.I posted this last time atbut it didn’t show up on my 'preparing automatic repair' search.
