Hi,

This is my first post on these forums; I'm pretty competent with computers but I'm at a complete loss with my current problem. Also as a little disclaimer, my only access is via my phone so please ignore any crazy autocorrected words!

So, my problem:

I have an acer aspire 5920g which has been running vista perfectly fine up until now. Completely out of the blue, with no recent downloads or updates that I can think of it became really slow and kept freezing. It got rapidly worse until now.

It now loads Startup Repair on every boot. No matter what option I choose from boot options, inc safe modes, it will load Startup Repair. But every time it runs I get the message "startup repair cannot repair this computer automatically" and tle problem details are as follows:

Problem Event Name: startuprepairV2
Problem signature 01: Autofailover
Problem signature 02: 6.0.6000.16386.6.0.6001.18000
Problem signature 03: 6
Problem signature 04: 1376277
Problem signature 05: CorruptRegistry
Problem signature 06: CorruptRegistry
Problem signature 07: 3221225485
Problem signature 08: 3
Problem signature 09: RollbackRegistry
Problem signature 10: 0
OS version: 6.0.6000.2.0.0.256.1
Locale ID: 1033



There are no recovery CD's and I am hesitant to factory restore as I have heard that may not solve the cause and I really hope there is a way to keep my files.

Even a way to CMD prompt could be helpful...

Thanks in advance!!

Just another detail: I tried "complete PC restore" and got the message "the file or directory is not a reparse point" 0x80071126

And system restore has no points.

So it seems as though I don't even have restore as a back up plan.

Hi, with Vista you do need the OS dvd to boot from it and access the RE (repair your computer option) and from here select command prompt (any copy of vista will do as long as it is either 64 or 32 depending on what you have)

At command prompt:-
Enter the following commands to fix the issue.
We need to determine what OS the RE assigned a drive letter to (not always C) so at the x sources prompt type:- bcdedit |find “osdevice” press enter (use the returned OS drive letter in the following cmds (assume C:).

(press enter after each command)

C:
cd windows\system32\config
C:\windows\system32\config>ren default default.old
C:\windows\system32\config>ren sam sam.old
C:\windows\system32\config>ren security security.old
C:\windows\system32\config>ren software software.old
C:\windows\system32\config>ren system system.old

C:\windows\system32\config>cd regback

C:\windows\system32\config\regback>copy default c:\windows\system32\config
C:\windows\system32\config\regback>copy sam c:\windows\system32\config
C:\windows\system32\config\regback>copy security c:\windows\system32\config
C:\windows\system32\config\regback>copy software c:\windows\system32\config
C:\windows\system32\config\regback>copy system c:\windows\system32\config

Exit CMD and Restart computer.

Thanks for the reply.

I have since obtained a vista recovery cd and performed the steps you suggested but nothing has changed at all.

Should I have expected to see anything happen in the cmd prompt whilst I entered these commands?

Hi, this is the only way to recover a bad registry, if you do not have backup apart from programs like ERUNT which would have saved you there is little you can do. Unfortunately the backups windows make could also contain the corruption and you have no way of selecting later configurations, so this method often fails.

Good news usually is that a in place reinstall will repair this and you are good to go.

I was worried that might be the case.

Thanks anyway!

You wouldn't happen to know a way that I could move files to an external had drive through command prompt, or any other way that doesn't require windows to be fully loaded?
