Problem with windows booting

Ryan W
 Share

Hi everyone, new here today I restart my pc because my computer wouldn’t detect my headset but when it came back on I was greeted with windows automatic repair which went on to fail, I’ve gone through everything online to try and fix it such as the bootfix etc command but got an access denied message when trying to do so so long story short Im at a dead end with what to do the error code is 0xc0000225 and would I be able to combat this by reinstalling windows on a m.2 ssd and delete windows off my current 3.5” hard drive.

thanks in advance

It's possible your harddrive has kicked the bucket. See if you can boot a Linux live CD to save any data off of it if possible, and then try to reinstall Windows.

Well, reinstalling windows is a sure way of fixing windows problems... it could be a problem with your hardware though. Before you buy a new ssd, try running memtest for a few hours and plugging your windows drive in a different sata port. Make a backup of your hard drive if you have any important data on it.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Doesn't mean it's healthy. You'll need to get into an operating system (via USB in your case) to check.

No, Linux. Windows can't do anything without being installed. Either that, or something like Hiren's boot CD, which comes with a miniXP environment and a ton of tools to check your hardware.

And is this the only way to do it 

If you resetting Windows only because headphones problem (not so good reason) then I'm afraid this is the only way that will work in your case. Most of other advices is more difficult than fixing headphones detection.
