Windows 7 0x80070057 Error - anybody experience this ? Help !
12/11/12

Posted on 12/11/2012 2:44:10 PM PST by sushiman

First off , I should tell you that I have a Japanese HP Touchsmart desktop computer so cannot tell you exactly what all the messages I'm getting say and my wife can't translate everything either , but basically this is what has been happening every morning for the past 3 days . The computer won't boot until my wife attempts to restart windows in the last known working configuration ( takes roughly 20 minutes ) , and when she does this the message we get says it failed with another message saying there is an error # 0x80070057 . But when we turn off the message the computer then boots and works fine all day . Just for the heck of it , yesterday , I shut down the computer for a minute , turned it back on and it booted . But when the computer is off all night it won't boot in the morning until wifey goes through the aforementioned procedure . Has anybody here experienced this problem ? Apparently it has something to do with a Windows auto update that I got on Monday ( now Wednesday ) .

This wouldn't happen if you used Linux!

According to the above, it appears to be related to Windows backup.

The above link shows a couple of resolutions that might help.

Another potential solution:

Try doing a system restore to the time just before you started having problems.

The screen should show a list of any ‘new’ installs that could be affected.

After the system restore, you may need to reinstall those programs that showed up on the ‘affected’ list.

” Try doing a system restore to the time just before you started having problems.”

We’ve tried that , and got the message that it didn’t work with the error # . When we turn off that message the computer boots , as I mentioned in my thread .

Have a man try it. Japanese computers have a little bit 男性優越主義

Have you tried booting in Safe Mode?
I Googled "Windows 7 0x80070057" and came up with dozen a different causes and fixes. Oy.
How about a repair install of Windows 7?

No , I haven’t , or should I say my wife hasn’t . Speaking Japanese is one thing ; reading it especially when pertaining to computers is another , so she’ll have to do any fixes .

Try the Win 7 System File Checker:

Do you have an Windows install disk? Or, does the computer have the install on a separate drive. If you open explorer you should see one hard drive if there is no install or HP preloaded system. HP, or most of the OEM's for that matter, no longer ship the disk with the PC. They rely on the hard drive to carry the install info.

If you have two hard drives in explorer one would be C: and the other probably D:. Look in the drive that is not C: and see what tools you have to reinstall Windows. If you have a separate disk run the install.

I would try to back up any data files you have before trying this, though.

Your missing a critical update. I had the same thing happen to me. Go to the windows update site and update your OS. You should be good to go after that. I haven’t had any problems since.

The trouble began after the last auto-update on Monday . My wife restored to Dec. 8th so now there are 7 updates at the Windows update site . 5 appear to be security related . One a small program of some sort ( Japanese ) .

Doing the updates from the windows site worked for me. I say give it a shot. Sometimes auto updates do some funky stuff to your computer.

So first things first. What windows version V,7 or 8.
You should be able to change the language in the control panel.

Find the event viewer clear everything and go back the next time and look at the failures. before you clear the red ones upload any info that looks similar to the error your seeing.

To make life a little easier you could enable crash reports and download whocrashed www.resplendence.com

Once we know the actual full crash an modules, we should be able to figure this out.

Just for starters, clear your cache, run defrag and chkdsk. you might want to do a windows defender offline AV scan just incase.
