Blue Screen Of Death, Boot Problems, Black Screen Startup

Jul 17, 2005

when I turned on my computer and got the blue screen of death, so I restarted my PC. Then a black screen came up saying "Windows could not start beacuse the following file is missing or corrupt : windowssystem32configsystem."

You can attempt to repair this file by putting the winxp cd in etc...

Now when i turn on my computer there is just a black screen showing, with nothing at all on it.

Any ideas?

Blue Screen Of Death On Startup

Aug 30, 2006

Yesterday I tried to turn on my laptop and it jumped to a screen saying that windows was not shut down properly last time (Which is incorrect, it was shutdown properly and there hasn't been any abnormal activity or malfunctions with the computer. No programs were installed recently and only) it then gives me the choices of starting in safemode and such. Attempting to start up in any mode the computer goes through the beginnings of starting up.

Blue Screen Of Death Upon Startup

Apr 5, 2007

Last weekend I had a problem where every time I started my computer I received a blue screen of death informing me that my computer had improper Boot Volume or some nonsense like that. Using instructions I found via Google (some from this site!) I restored my boot volume using the windows cd.Tonight yet again my computer has to decided to mess up with a blue screen after startup. this time I get further into the start process (but not to windows) than I did last weekend, but I don't have time to read what the blue screen says before it makes my computer restart. last weekend it would just hang on the blue screen til I turned it off but this time I get a brief flash of blue and then it's restarted. It also doesn't look like there's as much text on the blue screen as before.but it may be the brief period I get to see it (or lack thereof).I do feel as though the two instances are related as they seemed to start the same way. I went to restart my computer using the restart command, it would not restart, one of my open windows froze and would not turn off in task manager, so I turned it off manually. yes, I know that's not good at all, but I've turned it off before without it completely crapping out on me, it seems to only have this effect when it won't shut off when I want it to.

Despite the differences in the behavior of the startup error and the blue screens do you think it is the same problem? Should I try the boot volume restore thing again or could it be something else? I also have to note that I can't start in safe mode either.I am NOT in any way computer literate.I am completely technologically challenged so I hope you have some help and I'm sorry for taking up your time.

Blue Screen Of Death On Startup

Jan 2, 2010

Was getting multiple blue screens on an old install of XP so I decided it was time to reformat and reinstall windows XP.) XP installed properly. Began updating drivers, adding necessary software, etc Everything ran smoothly until I unplugged the printer and then the BSOD appeared and would continue to appear whenever I tried to boot. It was the strangest thing.I unplugged all peripherals from the computer this time and began to install clean. XP installed properly. Began updating drivers, installing Windows updates. After windows updates installed and I restarted, the BSOD began appearing on every startup up after the Windows splash screen.

Blue Screen Of Death At Boot?

Apr 27, 2005

My OS is XP with SP2. My problem is that most of the time when I make a change (Install a new program, or uninstall an existing one), then at the next boot, I get a "Blue Screen of Death". I can then boot again and the computer boots fine when I select "Boot Normal". Occasionally I have to boot into "Safe" mode, and then reboot. Then everything boots normally until I again make a change as described above. This does not happen every time a change is made, but happens only after such a circumstance. I assume that it cannot be an existing driver causing the problem, or I would get the blue screen every time, and rebooting would not "fix" the problem. I have checked the boot log, and have not found anything.

Blue Screen Of Death Before Logon Screen

Aug 9, 2005

This moring when I turned on my laptop a '0x00000051 (0x00000001, 0xL1, 0L008, 0x00716000, 0x000001D6)' Registy Error appeared on a blue screen. It then continuously restarts, never making it to the logon screen.

I have tried to reboot in Safe Mode and 'Last Known Working' mode but the same blue screen appears. As I dont have a XP Home install disk (only boot disk supplied with laptop), I could not repair my registry so I have installed a parallel version of Windows XP Pro that came with another PC. I can access the hard disc so I will be able to back up most of my files BUT I cannot access the Documents and Settings of my user from the original OS because I selected 'Make this Folder Private' when I made the account. Does anyone know of a way to disable the 'Make This Folder Private' option on an account that is on a parallel version of XP?

Black Screen Of Death With Cursor

Aug 30, 2010

My husband's laptop has the black screen of death (KSOD) with a white cursor that stays in the middle - and never completely boots into windows. All attempts to go into any of the other options via F8 (Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Enable with Boot Logging, Enable with VGA, Last Known Good Configuration, etc...) all produce the same result - KSOD with cursor. I have the CD for reinstallation of Windows XP Pro with SP2 and have used it to go into the Recovery Console. all with the same result. I have also copied registry files (service, security, software, sam and default) from windows/repair, in case it was a registry issue. No luck. I even went back and did a Repair Installation with the Windows CD (an upgrade only, not a full installation) with no luck. I have gone into the BIOS and put everything back in default - nothing. ****Though I did notice that the BIOS CLOCK is off time every time I've checked it out (i.e. it's 7pm and the clock would say 9pm or 10pm. It never had the correct time every single time I checked).

Slow Stalled Boot / Blue Screen On Pro Startup

Mar 5, 2005

I have an IBM T41P Thinkpad, actually a company notebook with Windows XP Pro,Recently, after installing SP2 myself, but not right away, I started getting the following problem.When I come from the office to home and boot up my PC it goes through the XP startup and user login fine, then plays the login sound and the blue screen, (blank desktop defined) then it just sits for anywhere from 10 to 40 minutes before the start menu and the rest of the desktop appear, no errors or other clues, the hard drive spins occaisionally but not much.The first entry in the system event log is the event log starting and then the only errors are related to the DHCP and Domain controller not found, but these occur a few seconds apart in the system event log, so this problem is happening before the event log is started, I think.

I have to hit the reset button, it goes to the dos screen with the safe mode, etc. choices. I choose "start using last known good configuration" and I'm good to go.

W2K Pro Blue Screen Of Death

Sep 3, 2007

my husband, in trying to be helpful, decided to try to clean my Microsoft split key keyboard (the one that's sealed & is NOT supposed to be opened). When he reconnected the keyboard, he started a cascade failure in my W2K Pro (SP4). The most recent error code is "0x000000D1 (0x00000017, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xEB77B691) Address EB77B691 base at EB778000, DateStamp 3e25babe-uhcd.sys" I've tried the recovery console in the W2K disk with no result. I can boot in safe mode and the event viewer lists numerous missing paths & drivers. Any suggestions short of sacrificing a goat @ midnight? (or even worse, reformatting & starting over - over 17 gigs of data & programs that I really can't afford to have disappear into cyberspace.

Blue Screen Of Death WILL NOT Go Away

Nov 15, 2009

OS: Windows XP Service Pack 2
Computer: Dell Dimension E310
Problem: Last night, my computer was being real slow so I did a hard shutdown and after I let it sit for a minute, I turned it back on to see the BSoD with this STOP code: 0x0000007B (0xF7A24524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000). When I restarted, it went straight to what I'm guessing is the F8 menu, where it says start in Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Config, and Start Windows Normally. I tried all 5 of those options and all of them bring me back to the BSoD, I'm out of options here and I'm broke so I can't call anyone out and really really don't want to format my hard drive. Thanks for any help.

Not Load - Blue Screen Of Death

Aug 17, 2009

The owner of the computer no longer has any recovery discs. I have run CHKDSK /R several times to no avail. I have a Windows XP Professional disc. Is there any way to create a recover disc for the HP? Am I completely overlooking something?

At Reboot Blue Screen Of Death Comes

Apr 13, 2006

I also experienced the dread "XP reboots without warning" I understand this is by design in XP. Here's the twist. I ran my PC on XP Pro when I started getting the shutdown. In a attempt to diagnose the problem I used my brothers old PC to access my hard drive. I couldn't access my hard drive so I assumed it was because my brothers was running 98. I upgraded his PC to XP pro and wham...same thing now on his system and his hard drive. Almost immediately. His was known to have viruses. over the last two weeks I have installed XP pro and XP home in just about every conceivable pattern...upgrades from 98, full install from windows, full with reformat from boot disk, etc. There is only one thing consistent. 98 Runs fine, albeit slow and XP reboots at startup.
