Hello,

I need help please! I posted this same thing in Windows 8 but they told me that this could be a Malware issue and that I had to re-post my problem here. I hope you can help me.

I bought a new dell Inspiron 15r 5537 touchscreen with built in windows 8. I bought it in September but my sister gave it to me as a Xmas present so It's basically brand new. It was working perfectly but now it freezes after logging in. I've logged in in safe mode and it works fine for a while but then it freezes again.
I updated it to windows 8.1 and after that I turned it on once and worked fine, BUT when I was putting it away, it slipped and hit the table... It was a hard hit but nothing happened to the core so I figured it wasn't important. Anyway, when I tried to turn it on again, it froze in the login page. I freaked out and pressed the power button to reboot it and it was all black.... I tried a bunch of things like logging in to the setup and configuration, pressing f8, f2, f11, just to see if anything worked at all. (I didn't change anything but I did a system restore and a diagnose that included an error in the HDD saying "short self test unsuccessful"). After the system restore I tried to log in normally and it worked! The screen wasn't black anymore and I could log in, but then it froze on the tile screen. Now, I can sometimes open up control panel or chrome, but it freezes almost immediately... If I let it think, it gets unresponsive for about 10-15min and then it works again for like 5 sec and freezes again...
I can't do anything! I tried scanning for virus in both normal and safe mode but it freezes all the time. There was one time that got up to 75% and then it died... But it didn't find anything, the laptop is brand new so I'm not sure it's a virus.
Please help me, this just happened a week ago and I don't know what to do. I don't know if the hit could have done something to the hard drive... I looked at the support forum of dell and it said that I should check the connections of the hard drive with the system board because it could have moved with the hit. They also told me that maybe I needed to update the BIOS and that the black screen is a common problem with the windows 8.1 update and that I should update some video drivers.
Anyway I've tried downloading these things but For some reason I haven't been able to do so in safe mode and it is incredibly frustrating to try to do it in the standard mode with all the frozen moments and the incredibly slow response of the computer.
I have no idea if I should update the BIOS or even open up the laptop, I wanted to check with you first. What do you think?
Please please please help me figure out what's going on!

Thank you!

Hi. :)

Lets proceed as follows shall we...

Please note: If successful your machine may be back to its prior state before upgrading to W8.1, so your call if you wish to proceed or not. If you would prefer not to my best advise would be seek further assistance with the Computer Manufacturer since the machine should still be under the twelve month warranty. Or consider invoking the Recovery Partition etc and start over.

Custom FRST Script:

Please download the attached fixlist.txt(see below) and save it to your flash drive.

[attachment=68493:fixlist.txt]

  • Now please enter System Recovery Options on the problem machine again and then select Command Prompt.
  • Run FRST64 again as outlined in my prior post and then press the Fix button just once and wait.
  • The tool will make a log on the flashdrive (Fixlog.txt). Please copy and paste the contents of the aforementioned notepad file in your next reply
  • Reboot the machine back into Normal Mode.
Note: This above custom script was created specifically for this user, for use on this particular machine. Running this on another machine may cause damage to your operating system.

Next:

Let myself know when completed the above, if any problems encountered and if your machine is now able to boot up into Normal Mode successfully. If so all good and merely inform myself but make no other changes and we will then go from there, thank you.

I'm waiting for the computer to boot normally. The "automatic repair" screen appeared, I clicked on "repair" and now I'm waiting for it to boot. It is still at the Dell logo screen.

Hi. :)

Has your machine completed the repairs and or still doing so ? In the event it is the latter reboot your machine back into the System Recovery Environment >> Command Prompt

At the Command Prompt, type in sfc /scannow and depress the enter/return key. This may take some time to complete/process.

Once done so, then type in the following at the Command Prompt:-

chkdsk /r

This also may take some time to complete. Once it has type in exit and depress the enter/return key, then reboot your machine back into Normal Mode.

Let myself know the outcome in your next reply and if any problems encountered, thank you.

Hi,

This is what it says:

X::\windows\system32>sic scannow
Windows Resource Protection could not start the repair service.

X:\windows\system32>chkdsk/r
The type of the file is NTFS.
Cannot lock current drive.
Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected.

Hi. :)

Reboot your machine back into the System Recovery Environment >> Command Prompt

At the Command Prompt, type in Repair-WindowsImage -Online -RestoreHealth and depress the enter/return key. If this works, then try

sfc /scannow again. In the event both fail/do not work you could consider trying a Reset of Windows 8 . Not a lot else I can advise to be honest as it appears the Operating System may be damaged beyond any feasible repair and you just may have to consider invoking the Recovery Partition as I mentioned in a prior post.

Hi,
It says that Repair-WindowsImage-Online-RestoreHealth is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.
Am I typing it incorrectly?

Only other recourse I can advise I'm afraid is what I mentioned prior:-

consider trying a Reset of Windows 8 . Not a lot else I can advise to be honest as it appears the Operating System may be damaged beyond any feasible repair and you just may have to consider invoking the Recovery Partition as I mentioned in a prior post.

Or seek further assistance again with the IT Tech staff as these current problems are not malware related but specifically a damaged Operating System.

Could the OS may have been damaged with the hit I mentioned before?

You're welcome...

I doubt the actual Operating System per-say would have been damaged but feasible the actual Hard-Drive itself is and hence the current problem(s). Though either way Malware is not the culprit.
