I was trying to fix problems with my flash player installations and was reading about registry editing that was supposed to be done (hclass_root). I tried to make the changes and got nervous about it. I wanted to back out but instead I clicked OK. Now my machine boots up to Window logo and stays there instead of showing the users list.
I start computer and during windows xp logo booting screens the monitor will go blank (orange light by monitor power button) and keyboards lights will turn off numlock caps and scroll lock will not turn them back on and the little light on my wireless usb mouse reciever goes out. however the pc front lights disc tray and network lights remain on and fan is still going. but sometimes i do manage to get passed the startup (10% of the time) and into windows for about 10-30 minutes before the same blank screen freeze up happens. i know its not totally a videocard monitor issue because not just the monitor goes blank everything stops responding......
A friend of mine is having a really hard time figuring out why her computer keeps freezing so I said I would ask you knowledgable people here. She hardly ever uses it and has almost no programs on it but just surfing the net or even poking around the desktop will freeze the computer. Nothing to do but reboot Ctrl-alt-del won't even work. She's tried spybot, adaware, hijack this, housecall etc and I checked it out myself. I'm sure there is nothing like that on her computer. So we can rule that out. She's installed a couple of RAM and HD testers all came back fine. She does have a firewire card installed and if she attempts to use it (for transferring movies) it will freeze for sure. This could be lack of RAM even though you only need 64MB (she has 256MB) as per the box requirements. Could the firewire be affecting everything else even when not in use? Could a windows file be missing? A setting somewhere perhaps? Hardware or software conflict?
I've had an infinite reboot cycle for the last 3 days now, and I still cannot figure out why. I have been looking at other cases and are quite similar to mine but not exact. This is my problem
I have XPP and one day my computer got a BSOD. Then through out the weeks it had a few (5-6 maybe) BSODs. And one day I started up the computer and it went to the windows splash screen, the logo, and rebooted itself. Being frantic on my 6 month old computer, I let it reboot by itself...and it went on like that for a while. It continues to ask me if I want to start in safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompt, the last good known configuration, or start windows normally. I have tried all of the options and they lead me down the same road...infinite and continuous rebooting at the logo.
just start my PC and suddenly it was black after Windows XP logo screen and flashes BSOD. I did install a driver recently. Cannot enter safe mode as it stopped at /driver/JGOJO Cannot enter "from previous working setting" I can't boot up at all. The error code in the blue screen is Page Fault in Non Paged Area with code 0x00000050 something.
I have recently reformatted my aspire one with windows xp home edition from a USB bootable flash drive. Everything went well as expected except for one thing.When I turn on my computer, the acer logo appears then a page appears again which asks me to choose whether to start windows xp or repair it using USB. I have to always click the start windows xp before the windows logo appears and everyhting in windows is alright. I dont know how to fix this so that after the acer logo appears, windows logo comes next then desktop.
I've encountered many threads, which have a more or less similar content as mine, but none seem to be entirely similar. I've even tried out the solutions for most of them, however, I still find myself at the same point. The nature of my problem, as the title suggests, is that every time I'm trying to boot my system, the Windows XP loading logo page comes up and after a few seconds, the system restarts itself. After disabling the "Restart If System Encounters Error" option from the menu screen available after pressing F8, I was able to discover that the BSOD actually said that my system was experiencing a "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" problem. Thereof, I've tried to fix the problem using the following methods, 1 -> Taking out my RAM chips and remounting them on the motherboard. 2 -> Running Windows Memory Diagnostic tool (Both Standard as well as the Extended Test suites): Neither detected any errors with my motherboard or the RAM chips. 3 -> Tried starting using the "Last Working Configuration" option from the F8 menu: System still reboots at the same point. 4 -> Tried starting in Safe Mode: System still reboots at the same point. 5 -> Ran CHKDSK /R using Windows Recovery Console: Doesn't fix anything 6 -> Tried Repairing my Windows XP installation, it does all the things but right before it steps into the Repairing Menu, the system restarts. 7 -> I haven't installed *any* hardware or software of late. The last *wrong* thing I did, was to shut down my system forcibly (shutting off the power directly), because it wasn't shutting down even after nearly 30 mins had elapsed since I ran the command to shut it down. My last option remains, that I go for a complete reinstall of XP. However, I'm not entirely convinced that this can be the only solution and considering the overheads of taking backups, I'm not really enthusiastic about it either. I'm also hoping that I can get my hands on a different set of RAM chips to check my hardware for sure, but that'll take a week or so.
I have the problem with the bsod error (0x00000007F or something). I can't get the other specific details because I can't catch the numbers fast enough before my comp restarts. I even checked off the automatic restart button too! Usually, the system crashes randomly, when I have alot of programs on, or when im playing counter strike in particu I almost forget, it started just recently when my comp suddenly froze (except the mouse). So I restarted it but my system wouldnt boot past the logo screen. I've did almost everything people suggested but I just gave up and decided to start up new. Bad idea. So now I got everything installed. I am almost sure that it has nothing to do with software because it worked with the same things before (Even though my audio driver didnt pass the XP certification thing, which is odd).
Between the time the Windows XP logo screen disappears and the Welcome screen appears, the display remains blacked out for about 15 seconds. Is there a way to shorten or eliminate this blackout period? The only programs that are loading during startup in the MSCONFIG "Startup" tab are the antivirus and firewall programs.
I use my comp alot and installinguninstalling all sorts of stuff.. requiring reboots blah blah blah.. Checking out some other boot times my system seems abit slow.. or it's me being impatiant. My Boot Time is 38 seconds. I've tried every trick on the web i can find.. Programs, Reg edits, MSConfig etc.. and nothing seems to be saving me anytime at all.the only thing that saved me time was uninstalling Zone Alarm saving me 8 seconds, going from 46secs to 38secs.
System timings: 12 secs - BIOSRAID ControllersSystem list 3 secs - Blank 7 secs - Windows Logo with blue bar 7 secs - Blank 9 secs - Windows loadingDesktop loaded with all icons....
Upon startup on XP I get a pop up message (photo below) which halts the system until I press eith YES, NO or close the box. I've done Ad-aware, AVG, Panda, and Ewido scans on the PC but everything appears clean. The box itself contains no dialogue, simply two buttons (Yes, No), so its difficult to ascertain what the program (if any) is
I have receintly purchesed a hybrid-self built computer, rather relyable and fast, but since i brought it home it would periodicly stop in mid function and reboot all while case lighting uninterupted. I tried to replace oem powersupply with a much more capible one of 700w and still system will stop in mid-function and reboot as if reset
Recently my computer has started to freeze up or 'hang' (I think that's the right term). I use my computer for internet access almost exclusively, be it browsing, internet telephony, downloading stock data, or cleaning the fish at the poker tables (but more on the poker app in a second). I am using FireFox with tabbed browsing; everything will be normal then suddenly I won't be able to tab back and forth between open windows. Clicking on any icon on my computer brings about no response. The solution is always the same I click control alt delete and bring up the windows security dialog box. I click on Task Manager and nothing happens. THEN - I click on Task Manager a second time and the TM pops up. The weird thing is I don't have to do anything else. Task Manager shows all programs as running and then I simply close Task Manager and all programs are again functioning normally. Somehow the process of opening the TM clears the freeze-up. This is happening with all programs EXCEPT- my poker client, which doesn't freeze up at all - I can play poker or chess through the ICC BlitzIn client and there is no freeze-up. It is only when I am browsing, or using the Skype internet telephony client, that this happens, and I believe it is only when the browser is up. I have run complete Trend Micro Scans which discovered a few problems including asujuja.exe. I fixed all problems found at Trend Micro Housecall. I ran a bunch of other scans and cleaners that I have. I am going to do a defrag of my HD tonight. I downloaded the latest version of FireFox and installed it over top of the older version I had but this didn't work. Does this ring any bells with anyone? Why does the Task Manager clear this blockage and why must I always click on Task Manager TWICE to get it to work (this is the weirdest thing about the problem).
It gets to "Installing Devices" then goes to BSOD with: IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL STOP 0x0000000A (0x00000010, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x8051AA58) I've swapped out the video card and tweaked every setting I can find in BIOS to no avail. There are no BIOS settings for cache or shadowing. Does anyone have any thought as to why XP won't load but 7 will?
Hardware is Dell Latitude D630 currently running XP Pro. There is so much rubbish on the hard disk, I want to perform a clean install of XP and start again. However, when I boot off the XP CD, system halts on blue and white screen with the following messages. "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to protect your computer." Then 3 paragraphs of how to fix it which don't work. Then: Technical information

I'm running Win XP Home - SP1 (all updates). When I shut down or reboot, the system hangs up for a long time. I sometimes have to attempt to shut it down a second time via Start/Turn Off Computer/Restart (or Shut Down). When I do Control/Alt/Delete to try to get the Task Manager it takes a long time to pop up. What do I need to do to find out what's hanging things up?
Have rebuilt my desktop, new mobo, 160G HD, 1G Ram. Mobo is a fujitsu that is listed on the HCI, but needs external video card - using Geforce. Win XP-SP2 from Tiger/OEM version. Did the install/format Hd, install finishes, restarts and does a particial boot -- Win XP main screen comes on, then screen flashes over to a poor quality XP main screen, and halts. Restart in Safe Mode, boot starts but when main screen should appear, horiz. lines and blue text type symbols, as if Geforce video card not being functional.
I came in the other morning to a computer warning: UNABLE TO WRITE TO VOLUME G and I knew it was going to be a bad day! In a nut shell:My XPSP1 machine makes it to my desktop wallpaper and then hangs. No icons or task bar or start button. Though the HD lght stays solid, it is active and may be accessed via a networked computer but XP doesn't finish loading. Safe mode is no different except I see a blank screen instead of wallpaper Though I can browse the XP CD through Task manager, nothing will run and attempts to run any file will return a NO PROGRAM ASSOCIATED error The PC will not boot from or even try to start up the XP CD. (just spins up) The six XP startup diskettes downloaded from MS hangs up here or there every time and fails to boot.
My ACER Aspire pc won't boot past the Windows Logo. I tried to boot in safe mode but had the same problem. I am running XP home addition. It just keeps going round in circles, I get the Acer logo, then Windows and keeps repeating itself. I tried all the f8 options ie safe mode and starting from last known config but to no avail.
When I try normal boot, windows hangs up on XP logo screen. The hdd indicator tells me there is no more hdd access.When using save mode, windows starts until black screen with note "save mode" in the edges appears, then hangs up, also no more hdd access.Booting with options "last known working config" and other options does not work, too. (always the same result - hang up with no more hdd action).In my last working session i did not change any config, installed programs or so. Just using office package, acrobat, photoshop, icq and skype.Shutdown without any problems.
Got an HP Pavilion 563w with Pentiun 2.4, and 512 MB of ram, running an oem XP. One day, I tried to start it up, and it booted to the Windows logo screen with the black bar. The bar went across twice, then froze. Nothing else happens after that. Tried Known Good Configuration, same thing. Tried safe mode, stops at mup.sys. I tried to get into Recovery console, but doesnt seem to recognize my hard drive, as my only choices are off of the CD (Drive letter e). Tried to repair system files with an XP upgrade cd, and it tells me there's no operating system installed, and that I need to verify my install by loading the installation cd, which I dont have. So I tried to use the HP system restore feature on my computer, but it only gives me the option to reformat, and not repair. I am the fool who did not regularly back up files, so I still have some on there I would like to have. I thought I could install this drive as a slave in my newer computer, but the hard drive setup in that computer is SATA, and my problem child is an IDE drive. I did not install anything new (hardware or software) that I can remember in the days before it went south.
On a HP Pavillion with Win XP Home the display goes blank after the Boot UP logo with the sliding progress graphic.I've tried all the safe modes and the last driver it shows loading is agp440.sys and then nothing else ever happens.I tried installing another video card and had the same symptoms.Knoppix boots with just a passed mode error but continues and appears to work OK.I belive that HP's restore image on the HD will wipe out the primary partion so I am hoping that someone can point out another way to fix this.
It is possible to disable XP splash screen, which will slightly speed up the overall boot process. Be aware that removing the splash screen will also cause you not to see any boot-up messages that might come up (chkdsk, convert ), but if your system runs without any problems then it should not matter.1. Edit boot.ini2. Add " /noguiboot" right after "/fastdetect".(or check the /noguiboot switch in msconfig on the boot.ini tab)Upon restarting, the splash screen will be gone. It can be re-enabled by removing the new switch.
