    Prolonged Startup - Several errors/warnings in log.

    Hi All,

    For some time now my system has had a peculiar problem on startup in which the startup to the login screen is prolonged. Rather than the bios/motherboard logo screen followed by the ticking underscore screen. There will be two extra black screen with the ticking underscore as if its searching for something. (Apologies for lack of terminology).

    I've rebooted the system several times pulling out each peripheral, but to no avail. The errors in the log are also not consistent to what I can see as an error.

    Here are some errors that stand out to me;

    The system has returned from a low power state.

    Sleep Time: ‎2015‎-‎07‎-‎04T10:03:27.636342000Z
    Wake Time: ‎2015‎-‎07‎-‎04T10:03:59.033341300Z

    Wake Source: Unknown
    The previous system shutdown at 10:57:53 on ‎04/‎07/‎2015 was unexpected.
    Windows failed fast startup with error status 0xC00000D4.
    The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.
    The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) did not load:
    The system is entering sleep.
    Sleep Reason: Application API

    Now these errors/warning and such appear on the log, but are not consistent in every reboot.

    I can supply more information or post more logs if needed.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hold on... Your last full shutdown was in APRIL? That must be why! All computers need to be shutdown at least once every few days. Hopefully when you go to bed. If you do, that is. Are you able to even boot the PC?

    If you have another PC, take out the hard drive in the unbootable one and put it into an external case. Then plug it in and see if it is accessible

    I can boot up the pc ok, and it works perfectly fine once its running, its just I want to find out why the boot procedure is having this apparent loop, and producing some errors.

    Okay so I would like you to type these commands into an elevated command prompt.

    Hit the windows key and the C key at the same time. This should open up the charms menu.

    Click the search button.

    Type in CMD

    Right click command prompt and click run as administrator.

    Now type in the following:

    Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /StartComponentCleanup&sfc/scannow&Dism.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth&sfc/scannow&pause

    After that, tell me what it says for further analysis.

    Also do this:

    Right click the start menu button (Bottom left (default location) Windows 8.1 Logo) and click Control Panel.

    Under system and Security, click "Review your computer's status" (without the quotation marks)

    Next, click the bottom arrow to the right of the word "Maintenance"

    In the drop down menu, click "Check for solutions" and then click "Start Maintenance" (Both without quotation marks)

    Tell me your results afterwards.
