[QUOTE=goldeagle2005;500620]The fact that the mouse pointer shows up means the boot config data is OK. You mentioned System Restore did not work from WinRE or Safe Mode. Try this. When you're at the black screen with the mouse pointer, open Task Manager, go to File > New Task and punch in "explorer" over there. That should bring up the main Windows shell in the normal mode. Once that happens, try running System Restore.[/QUOTE]

thank you for replying to this thread...but about your suggestion. i cant even log on to my account because i see the black screen right after seeing the bootscreen... any other suggestions?

[QUOTE=jbennet;497185]did you try control + alt + delete twice ??

Windows has a backup login screen that gets shown when you do that (the windows 2000 style login screen) , in case the welcome screen gets broken/[/QUOTE]

yup i tried ctrl+alt+del twice... i also tried ctr+shft+esc but nothing happened... and this time, i dont know what i did, the old OS had disappeared...when i boot my pc, it automatically start this OS i am using right now...using this OS, i checked if i still have the files on that disk and thank god its still there... what'd i do this time?

dude im very sorry if ive been bothering you this much but no one else seems to care bout my thread...its already 7:51am here in the philippines...i havent had sleep yet...im so desperate to solve my problem...i've promised myself that i'd only reformat my pc if i get an upgrade...since i havent yet, ill do my best to solve my prob...

[QUOTE=jbennet;497170]i googled it. apparently crcdisk.sys is very buggy and it causes vista to BSOD after repair/install

Apparently there is a way to fix it:

1) plug in a ps/2 keyboard and uplug your USB one
2) disable USB keyboard support in the BIOS settings

one guy on an MS forum said to then:

do you have daemon tools?[/QUOTE]

yes i have one daemon tools installed...i have this installed just when i installed my OS a few months ago...i didnt find any problems with it...i even mount images succesfully with it...ill still try deleting the sptd.sys file...

but im not using a usb keyboard...

i also tried overwriting my .sys files with the .sys files from the OS i am using right now...it somehow kinda improved the situation...the BSOD doesnt show anymore but i dont see the logon screen...just a black screen and my mouse cursor...

bloodlust25

oh, about running in safemode...i was right, it stops at \windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk.sys

any thoughts about that? should i overwrite the .sys file with the drivers from the OS that i am using right now? would that help my problem?

[QUOTE=jbennet;497139]You can boot this Vista DVD and get access to options allowing you to run system restore. Boot the DVD and try restoring to say, a week ago.

you may want to try running the vista startup repair first.

uhhhmmmm jbennet, that is what i have in my vista installation disc... i tried that also... i tried vista startup repair first, it then performed a scan disk on the startup repair interface then restarted my pc, nothing's changed... about system recovery, i already said that system recovery cannot find any recovery points to recover to... i wanted to try and download the options you gave me, maybe it'd work better but wikipedia doesnt show any download links for that...you have any?

[QUOTE=jbennet;497109]STOP: 0x0000007E means a damaged device driver or system service.

look, as my sig says, TRY MY SUGGESTIONS AT YOUR OWN RISK!

there is a few more things to try:

boot into safemode. The problem i think is stemming from your modified login screen (which you didnt say anything about in the first place! being removed by SFC and the system therefore being unable to spawn a login interface.)

Where it should be the login screen hit Control+Alt+Del twice. See if an alternative (windows 2000 style) login screen pops up instead of the welcome screen.

If not then you will most likely need to reinstall your o/s but you may be able to "upgrade" which means installing over your existing OS. Read up on it first as its easy to wipe it by accident, but if successful you should be able to keep your stuff (might want to back up your data from your alternative OS anyway first)[/QUOTE]

ei, im sorry if i over reacted with your reply...thanks for still replying...

about my modified login screen, ive been using that for months now, i havent encountered any problems with that... and just before you suggested me to run a [B]sfc /scannow[/B], already did one myself and that repaired my login screen... then when i received your reply to my thread, i ran the scan again and it was then that all this happened...

i also cant run at safemode... loading stucks up at "crcdisk.sys" (im not sure of that)...

awhile ago, i was having this problem logging in to normal mode without explorer.exe running...

for other viewers that are willing to help, here's more details on what happened just after jbennet suggested something that wouldnt work:

i had another hard drive installed with the same OS and it ran normally but if i chose to logon to my original OS, this is what it shows right after the bootscreen and before the logon screen:

if this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. if this screen apperars again, follow these steps:

check to be sure you have adequate disk space. if a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for friver updates. try changing video adapters.

check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. if you need to use safe mode to disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced start up options, and then select safe mode.

You may need your CD. It will check whether windows files like explorer.exe are missing or corrupted. Reboot once (into safe mode again) after its done. It wont tell you if its fixed anything or not.

Once you are back in safe mode after rbeooting right click on the C drive in my computer and click properties theb go into the (tools?) tab . There will be an option for error checking. Run it. It may ask you to reboot.
