What needed to be done is now done: Update: It's still doing the same thing, however I saw for a split second a text saying "Media not found" after "Checking media presence.."

Good news we made progress, here is some bad news, it seems to have disabled the administrative account because when you log in it says "Sorry, unable to use this account as it has been disabled" then it goes to another log in called "Other user" which I don't know the username or password to. So no more boot loop but now we are locked out of it via account disabled.

Hi,

Looks like we made some progress. Please run another FRST Fixlist from the Recovery Environment for me, as you have done several times before. :)

Yep, just the other user account showing, no option to log in as the administrator.

Hi,

 

We'll try Safe Mode.

 

  • Start by shutting down your computer.
  • Press on the power button on the case to turn it on.
  • After the computer is about 3 - 5 seconds into the boot-up process, hold down the power button to shut down the computer.
  • Repeat the above process once again.
  • For the third time, turn on the computer and allow it to boot up.
  • If you completed the process correctly, a message saying "Preparing Automatic Repair" should appear.
  • In a few seconds, another message will appear stating "Diagnosing your PC" and Automatic Repair will open.
  • When you reach the Automatic Repair screen, click on "Advanced Options."
  • At the next screen, select "Troubleshoot."
  • When you see the next screen, select "Advanced Options."
  • Select "Startup Settings", then "Restart".
  • After the Startup Settings window appears, hit the "4" key on the keyboard.
  • Your computer will boot to Safe Mode.

Let me know if you can log in normally in Safe Mode.

I can log into safe mode. It is weird though, background is black and all the icons we had on the computer before are all missing. I will keep it there until you give me the next set of instructions :)

Hi,

Please run this from Safe Mode:

Press the Windows Key + R. This will open the Run box.
Type CMD and press Ctrl + Shift + Enter to open a command prompt as administrator.
In the command prompt, type sfc /scannow and press Enter.

SFC will begin scanning your system for damaged system files. This may take some time.

Once it is complete, let me know if it finds any integrity violations or not. If it does not, skip the below step.

If SFC finds integrity violations, please open a command prompt by pressing the Windows key + R, type cmd, and press Enter, and paste the contents of the below code box into the Command Prompt.

findstr /c:"[SR]" %windir%\logs\cbs\cbs.log >> "%userprofile%\desktop\sfcdetails.txt"
Press Enter after pasting it into the Command Prompt.

Once the command completes a file called sfcdetails.txt will be saved to your desktop. Please post it to your next reply.
