The Windows Registry (essentially a large database containing software and hardware configurations) is corrupt. That's why it won't start in Safe Mode either, as the Windows Registry is required for Safe Mode too.

If you don't have a Windows installation CD to run the repair option, you'll need to do a Factory Recovery.

Also you might have memory issues. Download MemTest86+ ISO, burn it to a CD and boot from it. Wait for the test to complete and post back if there are any memory errors.

MemTest86+ ISO

ISO Burning Software

Have a GREAT day!

Problems that look like registry issues are sometimes actually RAM issues, hence the test suggested in #2 is a good idea.

I have often found that cleaning the RAM edge connectors with a pencil eraser can cure RAM issues. Pop the sticks in and out a few times to clear the oxide off the sockets too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Thanks all for your reply.

I didn't able check #2 solution. I have tried to repair the OS but it didn't help. So i have taken HD to my cousin's home attached with his machine so i can take my useful data from C drive. Then later i installed the new OS. Now my machine is working fine.

I want to know, is this issue is related to my HD or OS issue. In future are there are any changes of coming this issue again. Should i replace my HD because its still under warranty period.

Shall i run MemTest86+ ISO as suggested by #2.

I doubt anyone will be able to be too definite about this - too many variables.

No harm doing the Mem test, it will either find something or not. Clearly the OS got corrupted and it is still possible that the RAM (or its connectors) caused this.

As for the hard disk, if you run chkdsk /f that will give you a quick clue about the condition of the hard disk. There is a more thorough and lengthy test, if you wish to go for it, using chkdsk /r. Either way the results flash up on the screen rather fast, so if you don't have time to read how many bad blocks were discovered (if any) then a report appears in Events. If it passes with flying colors then clearly something messed up the OS. It could have just been a software glitch, where some conflict happened - by no means unheard of. Reloading the OS will have now sorted out the latter.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
