Hi, this is my first time posting here so hopefully somebody can help. A few days ago I was cleaning my registry with boostspeed (I think this may be a factor and yeah, stupid move I know). I restarted my computer only to receive a blue screen stop error.
The error reads a stop 0x00000F4. I have tried multiple ways to fix my comp, but to no avail.
I have used the start up repair to try and restore the computer. At first I had the option to select a restore point I had created right before cleaning my registry, but it would not let me check any boxes of ANY restore points. I then rebooted and found that it does not find any restore points anymore. I have tried to every method of booting, i.e. safe boot, restore to last working config, etc, with no luck. The comp is clean from any viruses or spyware.
When I go into the command prompt from the start up repair, the drive listed is X:\. Im not sure why this isnt C:\ anymore. I can access my computer through regedit from the command prompt and see that everything is still there on my C:\ (all old files, settings, etc.) Also from the repair screen, when looking for restore points, it detects that there is a windows 7 installation on my drive, so it is still there. This seems like it is trying to boot from X: or something. I cannot run AutoRuns because I cannot get to the windows desktop in any way. Here is a list of what start up repair tells me is wrong.
