GoBack reboots constantly

by dkane / October 22, 2005 12:33 PM PDT

help please !!!
I am using Windows XP, with Roxio Goback 3.
Since earlier today, it rebooted giving me an error message: Goback rebooted your computer because it detected your system was unstable. Allowing it to continue running would have caused corruption on disk #1". Code 0x15
I tried reverting with Goback to every earlier configuration, but it keeps doing the same thing.
I tried to get to safe mode, but after F8 when I select "safe mode" or "safe mode with command prompt", I get series of lines of text on a back background such as:
mulyi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\windows\system32\filename where the files are .exe or .sys or .ddl, and a few seconds later it reboots with the same error message as mentioned above. I don't have a bootable disk or diskette. Any suggestion as to what I could do ?
I am sending this request for help from another computer.

i am a big believer in go-back

and if it's telling you this AFTER you have already done a disk recovery, than allz i can think of is there IS something wrong with your drive. and it must be something irreparable otherwise your revert would have solved the problem.

i don't think it's go-back.

i know i haven't helped, but,,,,,,,

I forgot to mention something

Thanks for having replied. I hope it is not as bad as you think as I would hate to have lost all the data on my hard drive.
I forgot to mention something:
When I revereted back to eralier states with Goback, it go all the way to the screen where I can select which user profile to load before rebooting. When I just turn on the PC without reverting, it never goes that far, it reboots almost instantly. If the problem is a physical problem on the drive (The PC was working just fine until yesterday), why would it behave differently with and without reverting ?

i don't have go-back3 with wXP

,,,,nor with two or more user profiles,,,so i don't know what you are talking about "When I revereted back to eralier states with Goback, it go all the way to the screen where I can select which user profile to load before rebooting."

i would disable GB before windows loads up. you're gonna lose gb history but so what. if the machine no longer reboots, then i would totally uninstall/reinstall GB. if reinstalling gb brings back the reboot prob, then uninstall it again and try gb4

GO Back

At the school I go to they have the same program and theirs also reboot constantly on start up. I have noticed that they also have windows update enabled. So every time windows installs an update, go back reverts to an earlier time. Windows then re-installs the same update in an never-ending loop. So check if this is happening.

Thanks for replying. I do have automatic windows update on, but my PC doesn't automatically revert, it just reboots.

Auto GoBack

GoBack has an option to automatically revert drive to a previous state at predetermined intervals. Check to see if this option is checked.
