    repair restart loop

    while on Twitter last night my computer abruptly shut down and when it automatically restarted, it said that it had to repair disc errors and after that no matter what I have done it still tries to repair and then gives a blue screen saying that windows didn't start properly and giving a specific file name which is


    the first thing I found was an article about downloading microsoft media onto a disc or usb which I used a usb but when I tried to install it, it would not do the first step.

    the second thing I found a question that someone had on the subject from 2017 and the first reply from a microsoft tech was telling the individual to:

    at the command prompt type in

    bootrec.exe/rebuildbcd my computer did this

    bootrec.exe/fixmbr my computer did this

    bootrec.exe/fixboot my computer said access denied

    the tech also said to do

    chkdsk/r c:

    all this allowed my computer to do step one of the installation and did step two but it said it couldn't do the finish up part of step two

    I am doing the above instructions a second time to see if it helps but I did notice that while doing the chkdsk and I noticed that there were a bunch of instances where it said correcting error in index $130 for file 54722 and it said that chkdsk discovered free space marked as allocated in the bitmap for index $130 for file 54722

    How do I go about fixing this?

  2. Automatic Repair Loop

    Hi Charlene,

    Your concern regarding the device going into an Automatic Repair Loop can be caused by change on its settings/configuration or broken system files. To effectively assist you with your concern, can confirm if you've made any changes on your device prior to
    your concern?

    As an initial step to get back into the normal Windows screen, we suggest that you perform a
    Startup repair. The repair will attempt to fix any broken components/files which may prevent your device from booting properly. To do this, follow the steps below:

    • On theAutomatic Repair screen, select Advanced options.
    • Select Troubleshoot.
    • Select Advanced options.
    • Select Startup Repair.

    We'll appreciate if you can send us an update.

    This issue might occur due to an old or corrupted graphics driver. Since you are experiencing a constant restart loop, we suggest that you follow the Startup Repair steps below:

    • Turn off your computer.
    • Turn on your computer. As soon as you see the Windows logo with the spinning dots, press and hold down the power button until your computer turns off. Do this process
    • Turn on your computer for the third time, and let it load.
    • It should give you the message: Preparing Automatic Repair.
    • On the next screen that would appear, click on Advanced Options.
    • Select Troubleshoot.
    • Go to Advanced Options.
    • Click on Startup Repair.
    • Wait for the repair to finish.

    We would appreciate it if you could get back to us and provide us your feedback.
