Default Windows 7 MBR corruption

Hi all


ive been having a strange problem for the last week. my boot manager/master boot record seems to be corrupting out of the blue.

its only happened twice now but i would shutdown my pc normally and then go to work and then come back from work turn it on and it will post and everything and get up to where windows would normally show the loading progress bar but nothing will show. it will just hang on a black blank screen.

ill need to boot to win7 disc run
bootrec /fixmbr, /fixboot, /rebuildbcd

and it will work again. I'll do that and restart the pc again from within windows to see if its corrupted again and it seems fine.

any ideas? something to do with my ssd possibly?

Use chkdsk (please double check with your SSD manufacturer to see if you can use it), I would also check to see if there is a firmware update for your SSD too.

Otherwise a clean reinstall might be in order. I'd scan for viruses as well.

Maybe run a repair with the Windows DVD? I would say that if you could boot up into Windows, just run "sfc /scannow".

Yeah I've used the Windows disk in this situation before and it worked well.

yeah thats wot i do before i do the bootrec commands but it will say windows has detected no problems with windows startup.

so ill just go to commandline and do the bootrec fixe anyway and it fixes it.

so odd.
