Windows stuck at booting crcdisk.sys

[ Edited ]

Windows stuck at booting crcdisk.sys forever....

 

I have the DVD disk, which I tried :

1. startup repair...completed

 

2. system restore....cannot produce a date, and says it's in limited mode....

 

3. cmd prompt, I tried sfc/scannow, but would not let me, also, last time before problem, i scheduled a chkdsk, now i can't cancel even i did the "chkdsk /x C:....although it says the disk was not dirty, still, the chkdsk will kicks in as i tried to boot up, i have to click a button to abort within a few seconds, then you can see on youtube video above. 

 

In case above link was blocked by sony here, it's /watch?v=nxp3FO_ASrg

 

Please also notice the video, it shows abnormal " " " " " " and colums in blue colors....

 

Is this the end of life of hard drive? 

 

Thanks

Re: Windows stuck at booting crcdisk.sys

Also, I tried using the DVD installation recovery discs, at the end of the installation, it says: ERROR-305:******, don't think the OS reinstallation was done.

 

When I tried to boot up the computer, now it says operation system not found.

Hi Afite1968,

 

Welcome to Sony Community!

 

Did you use the VAIO recovery disc to recover the system? For the error code that you encountered, "ERROR-305:***", you may refer to the link below and identify which one is the exact error. https://us.en.kb.sony.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/30300/c/65,66/kw/error%20305 

 

To troubleshoot the error  Operating System not Found, visit the link below.

Re: Windows stuck at booting crcdisk.sys

Hi, 

 

Can you please check the first link you provided to me earlier? When I clicked that, it says illegal parameter received--don't know what the hack?? 

 

Yes, I used the Sony VAIO disk dvds set, total of 4 discs. 

 

I also concern about the " " " " " and color pillars that appear when the VAIO screen loads and screens that follow, do you think the hardware -- screen or graphics card had problem(s) ? Is there any way to check that ? (From the VAIO recovery DVD disks, although there are hardware diagnose available, but for memory and hard drive only, ,.....)

 

Thanks,...

Hi Lafite1968,

 

The first link is already updated, you may check on it now or just click here

 

You can check the Graphics Card using the VAIO Care application. Under "Advanced Tools" > "Diagnostics" > then choose the desired test. 

 

I suggest that you try the links provided, if the issue still persists then repair is needed. 

 

Regards,

Jen

Re: Windows stuck at booting crcdisk.sys

Hi, 

 

Thanks for the link; i ran both memory and graphics card diagnostic tests, seems these are not the guilty party. 

 

Any other suggestions?

 

p.s. Can you show me step by step as how to load ALL Sony VAIO drivers ONLY (without installing the OS from the dvds) to my laptop from the recovery dvd disk? 

 

I tried using using disk1, un-highlighted the OS and click load drivers, but then it hows system32 folders, but how do i select load ALLdrivers at once? Thanks
