Thread: Windows 7 Boot Failure

    Default Windows 7 Boot Failure

    One day, I was feeling adventurous and tried the Memory Diagnostics Tool (Control Panel > Administrative Tools). But it turned out that the test took more than 4 hours to complete. I think the message "This will take several minutes" was misleading because I thought it was referring to the whole test, instead the test consists of so many rounds with 2 test runs in each round. Feeling fed up of waiting, I pressed 'Esc' to cancel each round.

    Then the screen changes from blue to black and this message appeared:

    "Windows Boot Manager

    Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might the cause.

    Status: 0xc0000017

    Info: An unexpected error has occurred"

    The message recommended that I insert my Windows installation disc, reboot and use 'Repair your computer' option. So I did, but the Startup Repair reported that no problem was detected and indicated the OS will have have a successful boot. But Windows still failed to boot with the same message appearing after I canceled the memory diagnostics.

    Now what?

    try clearing the cmos by removing the mb battery for 30mins,sometimes you have to do a start up repair a few times for it to fix things,try doing a system restore from the windows cd or try booting up in safe mode
