Aug 14, 2008

I turned on my computer today, of course to be stuck with a blue screen of death.I'm getting the error:I have google'd this error, but I only get the first and second sets of error codes to match. No one seems to have the third set [0x823AA138] and after. No idea what to do.I have tried repairing but it kept saying X file is missing do you want to skip? I did this for many files before I got another blue screen.

Stuck On Blue Loading Screen

Jul 5, 2005

Yesterday, I acquired the "istsvc" spyware, and could not get rid of it. I ran an anti-spyware program, and it said it would run again when I restarted my computer to finish the job. I restarted my computer, and it never finished booting. It goes to the black screen with the Windows logo and the blue scrolling line just fine. Then it goes to the light blue screen with the dark blue borders and the words Microsoft Windows XP in the middle, and just stops. I know it is not frozen because there is a mouse pointer on-screen that I can still move. It stops at this same point no matter what mode I try to load in. I am using XP Home SP2.

Computer Wont Boot At All - Blue Screen

May 26, 2007

I have a dell Pentium 4 with XP service pack 2 installed, that has suddenly stopped booting. All I am getting is a blue screen with the stop error 0x00000024, which I believe means the ntfs file may be corrupted. I cannot do anything in safe mode or last known good or any other choices that might be available. Every time I try to do anything I get the blue screen immediately. The biggest problem seems to be that I cannot boot from the windows CD either. I don't know why, it just goes right by it. I have tried moving it up in the boot order in the bios but it made no difference. Is there anything else I can do to get that CD to boot or find a way to access it? Right now I seem to have no way to repair this problem.

Boot Up Just Gets Stuck On The Loading Screen

May 24, 2006

My brother's computer froze so the only way i knew to turn it off was to uplug the power.. I did that and ever since then i cannot get the computer to boot up all the way it just gets stuck on the xp loading screen.. Ive tried starting in safe mode, normal mode, and "last know configuration that worked" mode.. When i boot from my boot disk i get into the window's console, i try and choose the repair option, when it lets me do this it asks for a "administrator password", i dont remeber using one when i installed windows. I know the "quick" fix is to do a complete reformat and install, but my brother has alot of work files that he does not want to loose. This is my brother's computer, i always make a backup disk of my files for this reason.. but he didnt so im stuck betweena rock and a hard place.

Reformat Stuck At "setup" Screen / Getting Blue Screen?

May 27, 2006

I tried to reformat from the XP CD and from a boot disc floppy. Each time the process gets stuck at: Windows Setup.There is nothing else on the blue screen. It won't go past there to the agreement section...or anything else This system was a custom built computer, given to my mother-in-law about 3 years ago. The company has since gone out of business. It was built w/ XP Professional SP1 and has since been upgraded w/ SP2.Outlook express stopped working properly and would shut itself down as soon as it was opened. Then the dial-up connection would connect but no internet explorer pages would load.

Stuck In A Boot Cycle - Black Screen With Options To Start In Safe Mode

Aug 25, 2008

My main pc is stuck in a boot cycle giving me the black screen with options to start in safe mode etc etc and when selecting one of those options it reboots to the same point. When I press return the system tries to start it attempts it, clicks then goes back to boot cycle. The Windows XP system disk won't cut in like it should so I cannot gain control of the pc.

System is a Dell, 2years old and has had various viruses despite having the usual protection. I am currently using my old trusty Advent Pentium 3 for this message (which has never had the same degree of virus prob's curiously). After the first virus Dell talked me through using Ghost - brilliant. Within a couple of days it was hit again and usinng Spybot got rid of the virus but PC kept displaying the message rundll.dll file damaged. So I used XP Recovery seemingly with no problem only to find it won't reboot.

Computer Stuck In Loading Screen

Sep 14, 2006

I recently got a new PC that I built up myself, and I could run it perfectly until I was going to start XP for the first time. After that it was finished installing Windows XP Professional, it rebooted and I got this XP loading screen. Now is the problem, it's stuck there forever with this loading thing moving and moving in an endless loop. What could be the problem? I hope it's nothing hardware related as they are all new.

Today I turned on my computer and Windows won't load. It just stops at the loading screen (the one with the Windows logo and blue loading bar). The bar just stops moving.I can load Windows in Safe Mode, and I tried scanning for viruses (0) and spyware (5) - but it didn't help.I didn't install anything new and haven't changed any setting. The only thing is that I turned my computer on while there was a CD in the drive. I took it out but it didn't help.

Computer Stuck At Loading Screen

Jan 31, 2010

I had a power supply die out of nowhere on me about a month ago. Last night I replaced it, and when starting up my computer I was given the option to boot windows normally, in safe mode, or in my last known configuration. Any of these options take me to the black screen with the windows logo and the blue loading bar, as usual. However, I am stuck at this screen. I've never encountered this, what do you think could be the problem?

Blue Screen Error Bring Boot Selection Screen - Reinstall Operating System

Nov 12, 2009

Encountered a Blue Screen of Death error. The error stated that I should run Chkdsk and then proceeds to restart and bring me to the Windows boot selection screen (safe mode, last known good configuration, normally). No matter which choice I pick, it always leads to the BSOD then restarts. Since this is getting me nowhere fast, I want to just format and reinstall windows. I do not have my recovery CDs, and when I enter the BIOS to change the boot sequence I cannot change it so the CD drive is above the hard drive in priority. The reason it gives me in the bios is that "All items on this menu cannot be modified in user mode. If any items require changes, please consult your system supervisor. Any ideas on how I can boot off the cd and reinstall windows from scratch?

Blue Screen On Boot Up

Jun 12, 2007

I have quite a complicated problem. It started when my house lost power and my PC consequently powered down. Since then, whenever I start the machine, its reboots instead of showing the Windows (XP) login screen. I tried booting to Safe Mode or a command prompt with the same results. I ran a memory checker which found nothing. I ran CHKDSK (from the recovery console off the XP CD) and still experienced the same rebooting problems. I then tried to do a repair install of XP. The installation was going smoothly until I started getting errors saying �Setup cannot copy file�� with multiple .dll and .xsl files unalble to copy. Presented with the option to browse for the files myself, I did and found them right there on the disc in the proper folder, but they still would not copy. I even was able to run a virus scan from within the browse window of the installation (thanks to the �Scan with VirusScan� option McAffee embeds in the right-click menu) and still came up with nothing. So, needless to say, XP did not install because the files would not copy.

But wait, there�s more. Now with an incomplete copy if XP on my HD I consistently get the Blue Screen of Death upon booting to the hard drive. This made sense to me because I had an incomplete copy of Windows I was trying to boot to. But then I tried to boot to my XP disc and I still got the blue screen. I was able to get into the recovery console, but it froze after I entered the admin password. If I tried to do a repair install, it froze upon my selection of that option.

Didn't Boot And Went To Blue Screen

Jan 16, 2007

I just started my Dell the other day and as the subject says, it didn't boot and went to a blue screen which said something along the lines gave me options to start in Safe mode and a few others or to start at the last point where everything was ok. I choose this option and windows started without a hitch and I didn;t notice anything out of place or missing. I've done a few restarts since then and nothing out of the ordinary has happened since.BUT, then today I was loading some more programs on my recently formatted laptop. One of them being Perfect Disk 8 (trial) and WinPatrol alerted me to the startup entries. One of them being PDEngine, the other PDAgent. I'm assuming Perfect Disk caused this error on the Dell. Anyone have any Idea as to what may have happened. now I'm afraid to use the program on either comp.

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.

System Wont Boot: Blue Screen, "boot Device Inaccesible"?

May 15, 2006

My pc was running fine when it just started beeping like a warning klaxon. Rebooting didn't help, but rebooting into safe mode then normal mode did. Then 1 hour later while running spysweeper, I stopped the scan early because it was taking too long. It detected 1 adware and 1 trojan, but the log said the trojan (ruin) could not be quarantined and some threat was still in memory, despite a problem free pc except for the beeping which I thot was resolved. After exiting spysweeper

my pc locked up and could not be turned off manually, so I unplugged the cord in back. Then I got a blue screen after it tried rebooting. The bootup started normally, but then a blue screen read as follows, more or less-If this is the first time you are seeing this message reboot your pc. Otherwise check for viruses, remove any new hard drives or hard drive controllers. or refer to your startup manual. I can't even boot in safe mode.

Can't Boot - Stop 0x00000024 Blue Screen

After the intel screen it brought me to a black screen with choice to reboot in safe mode, etc. No matter what option I chose, I was unsuccessful - just kept coming back to that screen. After troubleshooting I found my way to the blue screen with the error message stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x8AFFA800, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000) and that I should disable virus protection etc. I inserted my xp disc but don't know how to get the system to boot from that.

Blue Screen - Downloading An ISO Boot Disk

Dec 19, 2009

like an idiot I took my computer to a repair shop. After a lot of money I got back an almost up-to-date system. The problem is that the Windows XP Pro that they installed is bad. I can not open any of the drives without going through a long process. I went to reinstall with my XP pro disk and it will not load. I get a blue screen that says it won't load and to try again. I can't repair it either. How can I get a C: prompt so that I can format the drive? I have already tried downloading an ISO boot disk but when I load that up it just gives me an A: prompt and it doesn't find the C: drive or any other drive for that matter. It is also a brand new hard drive. Does anyone know how I can fix this without taking the computer back into the repair shop?

Blue Screen When Boot / STOP 0x0000007B

Apr 19, 2010

I have 4 or 5 year old Win XP Home Tiny desktop computer which is having trouble booting. Basically when booting up, right before the Win XP logo it reboots itself.I have disconnected all IDE devices except for the master hard drive (plus disabled them in BIOS), I have tried a different hard drive in the machine that I know is working and has XP Pro installed. The same thing happens with this hard drive - reboots. This hard drive also has Ubuntu installed, and the machine happily boots Ubuntu to the normak desktop, but for some reason won't boot XP!Also tried a third hard drive in this machine that is working with Win 2000 installed, again the same thing happens.

Next I tried the original hard drive in a working seperate machine which produces the same result again.Also tried removing the RAM from the original machine and inserting a stick of working RAM from my other machine which again makes no difference.All hard drives I've tried have the correct jumper setting (primary master).
Also tried putting the Win XP disc in the drive and booting to that, I get to the menu and try to do a repair (R), but a few seconds after the repair begins the system reboots (this is using the original hard drive).Also tried booting into safe mode, and last known good config on all drivers.The hard drive is being detected in POST and in the BIOS which I have set as the first (and only) boot device.When I turn off the auto reboot upon fatal error, I can see the blue screen of death with error code 'Stop 0x0000007B'.So looks like the hard drive might be knackered, but there must be something else aswell because my two other working hard drives don't boot XP (only ubuntu)

When it started back up it was in the advanced options window. I selected "Start normal mode" I have tried to get it to do it again so I could get the codes but cant. I know it showed many partitions plus the message and codes. I am using XP Home with my Dell Dimension desk top. It uses a Celeron 2.53 GHz and 512 Ram. Thank You for any suggestions. Also I delete temp regulary and defrag every week or so but don't know anything other than that as far as maintaining system.
