I understand that the system and everything is old, but it's all I've got to work with right now.I have a Compaq Evo N800C running Windows 2000 Professional.I've tried every option in the F8 & F10 setups, everything takes me back to the blue screen. I know I read that this might be a virus. I read a suggestion about taking the drive to another computer to check this - I'm very very very home user basic beginner and I don't know if or how the drive can be removed from the laptop and put into my Dell desktop to check it.
My Compaq laptop is acting very strange. Yesterday eveerything was fine with it, next thing I know when I turn it on the next day it doesn't work. A screen comes up after the laptop's logo comes on saying "We apologize for the inconvenices, but windows did not start successfully. A recent hardware or software change might have cause this.If your cmoputer stopped responding, restart unexpectedly, or was automatically shut down to protect your filles and folders, choosen Last Known Good Configuration to revert to the most recent setting that worked.If a previous startup attempt was interrupted due to a power failure or because the power or reset button was pressed, or if you aren't sure what caused the problem, choose Start Windows Normally.
I have a toshiba satellia M40X laptop. Couple of weeks ago, it all of a sudden realy slowed down. The movies were laggin, and surfin the internet was taking forever and everything was slow, so i decided to format it. But even right after the reformatting, the laptop didn't go back to it's regular speed. it's so bad that the flash games online lag, and i've been playin those games since i got the laptop and they never lagged... Anyways i've been trying to fix the slow problem but today i got the blue screen when i was surfing the internet.
I have got a HP Laptop that is about a year a half old, its top of the range. I had my laptop in Hibernate mode the other night and the next afternoon I went to turn it back on there was a blank screen for a long time, all the lights on the laptop were on but nothing on the screen. I turned the laptop off and then back on again. and BOOM! The blue screen of death!The computer starts up with the HP logo and then it pops up a screen saying that a previous attempt to start up had failed and it gave me options to start up in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, start with the previous successfull start config, and normal start up. When i click ANY of these the windows logo pops up for about 3 seconds and then the blue screen, which appears for long enough for me to read 3 letters or numbers at a time. Then the computer restarts and we go through the whole process again. This is what I have done in the hope of fixing it.
I used my HP retore disks and it loaded disk 1 of 3 and it didnt ask for the other 2 disks which i thought was odd. But that made no differeance still the same start up process as explained above.The blue screen made mention of chkdsk and i read about some poeple on the net doing a chkdsk and it fixing similar problems. So i read that i needed a xp install disk to access the windows recovery console and type r. BUT i have a OEM installation so i have NO disks! So what i did was i got the XP Pro disk i have from a few years ago that i had on Desktop. BUT when it goes into recovery console it can not find any hard drives! #Ive tried spinrite and it reads all the hard drives in the computer so i know that they are still there. #I've tried to find some chkdsk bootable cd's but most are either floppy only or they only for FAT16/32 file systems, my file system is NTFS.I'am convinced from the research done that if I can run CHKDSK on the computer then it should fix the file error and then i can at least back up my data and then do a full format and start fresh again. But I have to be able to get this computer running.I just tried the "Last Known Good Configuration" selection and it says that the system32/config/SYSTEM file is missing.I would welcome any help, as I have exhausted all options that I can see available to me. From what I can see, the biggest problem is that im running a OEM version of windows. But then again the recovery console couldnt find the hard drives, so i dont know.
I have been getting the blue screen of death on my Dell Inspiron 600m running Windows XP Home Edition Version 2002 SP2 w/ Intel Pentium M processor 1600 MHz 299 MHz, 1 GB of Ram (only hardware not factory - installed recently). I was given this laptop as a Christmas gift as the donor received a new one on boxing day It was given to me with this error and I suspect it is from the new(er) memory installed but cannot be certain as I have no references to go on. I had enough of this reoccurring error very quickly so I reinstalled the OS clean and fully updated the system with Microsoft updates including SP2, the computer also has quite a bit of expensive software I installed and is virus free according to trend micro IS PC-cillin 2007.The memory that came out of this unit is in with the laptop bag stored in the new memory packaging, the new memory is: Times Two(2) units = KTD - INSP8200/512 (512MB Memory Module) Equiv. Dell(R) P/N: 311 - 1356 (Sodimm DDR Inspiron) whatever that means! The old memory that was removed says: Again Times Two (2) units = Infineon HYS64D32020GDL-7-B 32M x 64 SDRAM - B2V40212332G - PC21000S-2033-0-A1 - 256MB,DDR,266,CL2
Have a new HP laptop which had Windows 7 pre-installed. I couldn't get on with it so I tried installing XP but all I got was the "Blue Screen of Death" telling me that Windows had detected an error and had shut down. I tried again with the same result so I tried installing Linux (Ubuntu). This went on fine and so I tried XP again. Still the blue screen of death. XP will not install and I would be grateful for any help anyone can give to an oldie.
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.
having probs with my laptop still the tech guys that I have working on it are taking forever.it's been 3 weeks now.lemme explain. they have finally gotten xp blasted onto the HD but now when they try to boot it gives them the "blue screen of death" with an err msg. but it flashes so quick that they cant tell what the err msg is.for some reason the puter wont boot from a cd either.
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.
I keep getting the blue screen of death whenever I try to connect to the internet. The message is:PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA Disable bios memory options such as caching or shawdowing.intelc52.sys - adress f6f0c0e6 base at f6ee4000 date stamp 4048d1d3.The problem started to occur after I installed an older game on Windows XP.My machine is a Dell Dimesion 4600 with 1 gb of RAM.Dell suggested I try clearing the NVRAM, but obviously that did not work.
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.
I started getting this nasty lockup on anything i do, a game, surfing the net it does not matter it just happens all the time. It does it even when tryin to use the win XP disk to format the drive! If there is anyone that has a idea on what to do here please help my pc has become unuseable Just to let you know i have not installed anything new hardware or software so im clueless to what has happen here. I run AVG for my virus scanner and add-aware with Spybot serch and destroy on a regular basis and i got nothing. When i could get it to run correctly i got hijack this to check and it found nothing wrong.
I am working on a HP Pavilion a462x running Windows XP Home Edition. The computer will load all the way up to the Windows XP screen, flashes the "blue screen of death", and then reboots. 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?
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.
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.
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.
Decided to do the semi annual reinstall of XP. Machine was lethargic but not broken.Prior to starting had reassembled the latest drivers for motherboard, video card, printers, mouse etc and put on a USB stick..All went pretty smoothly but after about 6 hours started getting BSOD The only thing thats changed is software the last thing it did was 71 updates from Microsoft! I have searched other posts but what can I DO about the 'problem'.I have done all the obvious - chkdsk, scan for virus etc etcI cant roll back as it will pretty much take a single jump back to an unformatted drive.If I reinstall why whould I expect a different result ? (unless the order of updates is significant)
I tried reinstalling xp and it said "unable to copy partmgr.sys"then it gave me the option to retry or skip. retry didn't work so i just canceled setup. is there anything i can do to get around this problem? also, windows update isn't working for me. it keeps failing during installation.
PC Info In my Sig.Im running Windows XP and Ive had this BSOD twice in 2 weeks... Ive stuggled to fix it..Please see Image for Message.."*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00007DA0, 0x00000002 , 0x000000000,0xBABB2028)"
I have a few computers at home and within the last 3 weeks or so one of them has been displaying and error message with the notorious "Blue Screen of death" as it's background. The computer is running Windows XP Home Edition with all the updates and is scanned every few days using SpyBot Search & Destroy and Adaware SE Personal. I have SpywareBlaster installed and updated daily (if there are any updates) and AVG Antivirus scans daily and it is always updated daily as well.I have not installed any new hardware on this computer nor have I installed any new software either. Just so ya know, neither has anyone else. If something is put on, or done to this computer, I know about it.
This problem has occurred about 3 times while the computer has been on and running for a few hours AND it has also happened once during the bootup and loading of the operating system. (That just happened today). What happens is this. the computer SOUNDS like it is shutting down. Or to be more specific, it sounds as if one of the cooling fans has quit, just like it sounds when the computer is shutting down. I have ruled this out by removing the case cover and visually inspecting all 3 fans, all of which were operating fine. These fans include the PSU fan, CPU fan, and the fan for the tower. That's all there is in this system.
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.
I recently had a bad virus, and had to reformat my computer, wiping the hard drive in the process.I have windows XP Media Center Edition, 2002 version, Service Pack 3.After the fact, it worked fine for about 2 months, then it began to give me the BSOD whenever i plugged in a USB device besides the Mouse+Keyboard (Haven't tried other Human interface devices, I don't have any.), This includes a thumb drive, MP3 Player and External hard drive. It happens on startup as well. And in safe mode.
I don't get it every time i boot up just occasionally. nvarm.sys is one of my chipset/audio drivers. I had the latest drivers when i encountered the problem, so i returned to some older ones, the messages didn't appear for a while but returned soon enough. I tried trying alternate graphics drivers and re-updating my audio drivers. This also stopped them for a while, but i had the message again this morning. Searching around a bit, iv seen it called a "race condition", 'multiple processes access and manipulate the same data concurrently' I have never encountered a persistent blue screen crash such as this, i don't really know where to begin or what half of the error information means.
this morning I got a little bubble saying I had a curropted .tmp file... seeing as how im an idiot, I didn't write down the file name (I just looked at the destination.was in the tmp folder) and then the computer froze when I tried anything. Restarted the computer and it automatically started the system check thing dont know how you call it but the name of it is spelt with all caps... Step 1/3 is complete, when it checks the indexed files (step 2/3) it stops at 1 percent My question at this time is: How would I skip this system check so that I can get to the desktop, get the corrupt file name so I have more information to help fix the problem.
I bought my new laptop ( Toshiba Satellite L300) without an operating system installed on it and I'm trying to install Windows Xp but keep getting the following error message while it's installing the Windows xp drivers.The Blue Screen of Death.I get the "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer" message.
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.
EDIT: *** Huge Development, This idiot mistyped, it was elpow_spy.sys I think I got this figured out now but I'll post back if not.Hey, Basically when I start up Windows it loads all the way to my desktop, and about 10 seconds later it just restarts again and continues in that loop. All my fans appear to be working fine and I've dusted the insides of my computer pretty well. In the Advanced Startup Options I disabled automatic restart upon system failure. When I proceeded to reboot, about 10 seconds after loading to my desktop, I got the following blue screen error message, The problem seems to be cause by the following file eplow_spy.sys PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA *** STOP 0x00000050 (0xE35B000, 0x0000000, 0xEED86058, 0x0000001) *** eplow_spy.sys - Address EED86058 base at EED83000, DateStamp 42f22cac
I have windows xp and lately it has been running slower and programs are closed suddenly because they incurr an error. I have ran many a virus scans and spyware scans and they return nothing. Today I tried dick cleanup and I got a blue screen that said my computer was shut down and if that screen returned when I reboot to follow the steps for chkdsk /f. When I reboot the computer is automaticly checks the disk and I still have programs closing such as explorer, media player, word
