Basic Repair completely bricked my laptop


Recommended Posts

I ran the basic repair tool without thinking (I was fairly tired) and upon restarting, literally nothing works.  I can log in alright but programs won’t run, either doing nothing or giving me error messages. I can’t even see any available networks never mind connect to them. I’ve gotten errors for the Microsoft Notification Center, windows firewall, windows update settings, and once there was even a log telling me that the video hardware itself was damaged, which never came back after a second reset. A system restore ends up failing as well, saying it can’t access a file. Please help me ASAP.

Hello @Toontricks

Sorry to hear you're having issues with the system.

Please boot into Safe Mode and run a System Restore from the last restore

Here is a tutorial with pictures on how to do a restore

Let me know if that corrects the issue or not.

Thanks

Ron

It’s my fault for not clarifying, this is an older laptop that’s running windows 7 32-bit, not windows 10. 

It did manage to system restore from safe mode and most applications are starting up normally. However I still have no internet connections and I am kind of worried about residual damage or whatever might have caused this in the first place. Any recommendations?

Hi @Toontricks

Glad to hear you were able to get the system back up and running. I've moved your topic to the malware removal section of the forum to continue.

Let me get the following logs and we'll go from there to see what we can find going on.

 

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system.
You can check here if you're not sure if your computer is 32-bit or 64-bit

  • Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
  • Press Scan button.
  • It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please attach it to your reply.
  • The first time the tool is run, it also makes another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply as well.

Thanks

Ron
