Hello,
I am having a fairly serious and stressful problem with my laptop, a Dell Inspiron n7010. It basically started where after the screen that says "Dell" and f2 for set up and f11 for boot options, I get a blank/black screen with a blinking cursor or underscore. The day of or before this started happening Malwarebytes found something called a rootkit and said it needed to reboot to quarantine successfully which I did. I'm not entirely sure if the rootkit is the problem for all this but I feel like the possibilities are high based on all the searches for solutions I've done. I've seen problems similar to this one in the forums which I searched first but didn't find any for my laptop; so I was worried it might cause problems if I followed the advice in them. I'm not too advanced of a computer user so detailed advice would be great! I do have a clean (though quite slow) computer I can work from. I also have(had) recovery disks for my system but the first one seems to be damaged or possibly bent. I can't really tell from looking at it but I hear it tapping in the drive and slowing to a stop periodically. As of now I've tried Windows' start-up repair, which finds no problems. I wanted to return it to a restore point but I could not find the one I created. With all my data backed up I tried re-installing Windows 7 by booting from CD, however in the process it required a reboot, which led back to the black blinky screen. For now I've set the boot order to boot from CD, I somehow scanned for hardware problems too and it found none. I wish I could remember how but it involved opening a symptom tree and I had it search from the "Computer won't boot" section.

I apologize if I've given any unnecessary information I'll do my best to be competent in following what you tell me. Please let me know if you need more information (and if it's not too much trouble how to get that information). Thanks!

Hi, DoctorCrow! Posted ImageMy nick name is CompCav and I will be assisting you with your Malware/Security problems. Please make sure you read all of the instructions and fixes thoroughly before continuing with them. If you have any questions or you are unsure about anything, just ask and I will help you out. :)

If you have resolved the issues you were originally experiencing, or have received help elsewhere, please let me know so that this topic can be closed.


Please make sure you are saving and printing the instructions out prior to each fix, this way you will have them on hand just in case you are unable to access this site. One of the steps I will be asking you to do requires you to boot into Safe Mode and this process will be much easier for you to perform if the instructions are printed out for you to follow.

If you are ready to get started, please review and follow these guidelines so that we resolve your issues in a timely and effective manner:
  • Logs from malware removal programs (OTL is one of them) can take some time to analyze. I need you to be patient while I analyze any logs you post.
  • Please make sure to carefully read any instructions that I give you. Since I cannot see or directly interact with your computer I am dependent on you to "be my eyes" and provide as much information as you can regarding the current state of your computer.
  • If you're not sure, or if something unexpected happens, do NOT continue! Stop and ask!
  • These instructions have been specifically tailored to your computer and the issues you are experiencing with your computer. These instructions are not suitable for any other computer, even if the issues are fairly similar.
  • Do not do things I do not ask for, such as running a spyware scan on your computer. However, the one thing that you should always do, is to make sure your anti-virus definitions are up-to-date!
  • Please do not use the Attachment feature for any log file. Just do a Copy/Paste of the entire contents of the log file inside your post and submit.
  • You must reply within four days failure to reply will result in the topic being closed!
  • Please do not PM me directly for help. If you have any questions, post them in this topic. PM me only if I have not responded to your last post in 2 days.
  • Lastly, I am no magician. I will try very hard to fix your issues, but no promises can be made. Also be aware that some infections are so severe that you might need to ultimately reformat your hard drive and reinstall the operating system.
    Don't worry, this only happens in severe cases, but it sadly does happen. Please have the software and storage media for backing up your data available.

Please check you Windows label on your laptop if you are unsure and then download the correct version of the Farbar Recovery Can Tool as directed. :)



For x32 (x86) bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to a flash drive.
For x64 bit systems download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool x64 and save it to a flash drive.

  • Restart the computer.
  • As soon as the BIOS is loaded begin tapping the F8 key until Advanced Boot Options appears.
  • Use the arrow keys to select the Repair your computer menu item.
  • Select English as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.
  • Select your user account an click Next.

To enter System Recovery Options by using Windows installation disc:
  • Insert the installation disc.
  • Restart your computer.
  • If prompted, press any key to start Windows from the installation disc. If your computer is not configured to start from a CD or DVD, check your BIOS settings.

  • Select English as the keyboard language settings, and then click Next.
  • Select the operating system you want to repair, and then click Next.

I wanted to return it to a restore point but I could not find the one I created. With all my data backed up I tried re-installing Windows 7 by booting from CD, however in the process it required a reboot, which led back to the black blinky screen.

The problematic re-install seems to have created an additional primary partition.

Do you want to try and work with this to correct or are you ready to try to restore to factory image?

Regards,

CompCav

I managed to get my recover disks to work yesterday before I responded (I forgot to mention). If that doesn't make a difference let's try to work with the additional partition to correct.

Same error message after putting in the commands; "BOOTMGR is missing Press ctrl+alt+del to restart". Also I've been going into System Recovery Options through the Windows 7 CD because F8 hasn't been able to initiate safe mode for me. Also, the Window's 7 from the install that may have created the partition probably succeeded since I saw that OS in the window after clicking Repair your Computer a while back. But after using the Recovery Disks yesterday that Windows 7 was replaced with the Windows 7 Premium I used to have. So all the OS installations may be working to a certain degree.

After booting from CD and getting to the Command Prompt, I put in the command and it said:
"Please wait, since this may take a while...

Successfully scanned Windows installations.
Total identified Windows installations: 0
The operation completed successfully. "

Upon rebooting I get the same message as the last two times. Another thing I found weird was the command prompt was coming from the X drive, I don't know if that's normal but that's what it has been doing.

X is correct for the recovery console.

I think we need to try the factory reset.

You can do that with your DVD's that you made. You boot up on them first one and it should lead you through the process to get to the factory reset. Afterwards you will need to update the antivirus, SP1 if it did not come with it as well as several other windows updates.

If the first disk is acting corrupt you can try to make a copy of it, and try with the copy.


If you have questions on the process please let me know. For this to work correctly it will need to reformat the two primary partitions on your hard drive and only create one.
