Do a System Restore...restore to a couple of days before the problem started happening and see if it will go to Normal Mode on its own when it restarts. There are sooooo many things that cause this.... :tazz: Don't know if this will work after having done the repair, though...

We'll check on the slave error in a bit...as long as it's an error and not a failure, we're ok.

Open Device Manager. On the "View" (toolbar) menu, click to select the "Show hidden devices" check box.
Double-click "Non-Plug and Play Drivers"...Double-click "NetBIOS over Tcpip". In the "Device usage" box, click Use this device (enable).

If this is already enabled, I'll want to check something in the registry.... :tazz:

Click Start then Run and type regedit...click "Ok".

In the left pane, expand (click +) HKey_Local_Machine, then System, then CurrentControlSet, then Services, then click on Netlogon.

In the right pane, look at DependOnService...what is the value listed to the right of this key?

Ok...this may seem a bit redundant, but I'd like for you to run the chkdsk /r again...only this time do it twice in a row...sometimes, if there are too many bad clusters on the drive, chkdsk can't repair them all in one pass.

Let me know how it goes....

The registry key was as it should be....

Vitalik...

When the chkdsk is done and we're pretty sure the HDD is in good shape, let's do a selective startup and see if we can figure out which service is causing the problem. Boot into Safe Mode and do the following:

Click Start then Run and type msconfig...click "Ok". Click on the "Services" tab. At the bottom of the window, put a check in the box to "Hide All Microsoft Services" Clear all the remaining check boxes and click "Apply" then "Ok".

Reboot your machine and let me know if you are able to boot into Normal Mode.

If it boots to Normal Mode, you will see a "Selective Startup" window...this is normal and we'll ignore it for the time being...just click "Ok" to close it. Now, enable one service and reboot...then another one and reboot. Do this until it fails to boot normally...that will be our problem service (or one of them). Uncheck that one and enable another one...reboot. I'm sure you get the gist of what we're doing.... :tazz:

When you finish this procedure, post back with what you discover.

Me too...this may indicate it is a Microsoft service that's hanging it up...I had hoped not to get into those. Let me look into a few of them before we start to disable any of them. I'll get back to you shortly... :tazz:
