power keep recyling.

By Vuitanh ·
One of the user installed a software and and it asked to reboot the system. After it reboots it keep recyling after the ntloader is up( to choose between regular and vga mode) then it reboots again. I took the drive and scan for virus, but it doesn't find any viruses. I tried last know good start up, it doesn't work. What is most likely the problem?

You have a conflict that is preventing NT from finishing. What software was installed? Does VGA mode allow you to boot? You may have to slave it to another box in order to get the software uninstalled.

VGA doesn't work. How do you slave it to another box? Will it still need to be remove from registry? and how will it works when it is not the PRimary one.

You will need to pull the hard drive out and put it into another machine as a slave. If you do not know how to do this I would recommend that you get someone who does. You don't want to kill two machines. If you have it as a slave, it boots off ofthe other hard drive and the slave shows up on my computer as another drive (like d:). Another option is to do a parallel installation of NT on the dead machine. Then you would be able to get to the original registry and remove the funky software.

it isn't a fat volume is it. I believe you can boot up to dos grab the regist, and edit it on a different machine. (if its ntfs you may visit www.bhs.com and download the utility to let you read a ntfs volume nice tool even if it doesn't help you now) anyway if this doesn't work if you have a ERD for the machine. do a repair install on it. this may suck because if its old you may loose a lot of account info.

This is just a client so no account will be lost. Just the matter of time to reinstall the applications. Since the HDD isn't dead so I can get the data of bying using it as a slave.

Everyone is thinking to hard here, what application was it, you can get the utility from the bhs.com site and go to the drive and delete the program??? if the files are't there for the registry to load ?? well then they won't load and you'll get a nice little error!!! Give it a try.
Good Luck

I'm with mike slaveing the drive involves removing the case (big pain in ***)if you can't fix it in 5 minutes that way then go this route "if its a client machine like 20 others there.. grab a repair disk from one of them. and run though a repair procidure. Everyone gets hammered on this on the mcp test but few people ever get to try it in real life. (it's just one of those things that happens)
