Hello all,

This is my first post, I am not very computer literate and I am having a very large problem at the moment with my Windows XP Media Edition, with Microsoft Service Pack 3 installed.
This morning I started my computer and it worked fine initially loading up my desktop background and desktop icons, then the task bar at the bottom turned grey.
Without clicking anything my screen then turned blue and I got the error message that follows:

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The WIndows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000).
The system has been shut down

I rebooted about 4 times getting the same error, but on the 5th time it logged on as normal. I was then able to use the computer for about an hour I then turned it off. After rebooting it a few minutes ago the same error has appeared again and have rebooting about 10 times it doesnt seem to be going this time.

On occasions I get a different error which is:

"STOP: c00000135 {Unable To Locate Component}
This application has failed to start because qt-mt.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

Has anyone got any idea what this is and how to solve it? And if the two errors are related?
Thank you

Haychee

Hi,
I've a DIY PC that often reboot by itself. When I bought this PC, it worked fine for a year.
The initial problem was it crashed & reboot after the OS is started for a while. The reboot became so frequent that I have to take it back to the shop. The owner just took out the RAM and wipe it and the PC works fine for some months. Unfortunately the same problem repeated after some months and I have to take out the RAM and wipe it to let it run normally.
Now the problem has gone more severe. Not only wiping the RAM doesn't solve the problem, I have even install a clean OS to test if it was caused by my OS, but the new OS also crashed and reboot after a while.
The reboot occurs after shortly the OS is started. Sometimes the crash can happen continuously until the OS can't boot. Usually when this happen, I'll boot with my second disk (with a clean OS) and the PC tends to work for a while, although the second disk still crash occassionally after running a short while.
Since the motherboard is MSI, I did a live scan with the MSI website to update its firmware or drivers. Unfortunately the website return showing the firmware is up-to-date.
Can someone enlighten me what could be the problem please? By the way the OS is Windows XP. I've also tried installing XP and Windows 7 as a clean OS for testing and the reboot still persists.

Thanks in advance for your guidance.

Answer:Blue screen and auto reboot

Your description may indicate a memory fault or incompatibility. Provide the following information about your hardware so we can check compatibility:Download and install CPU-Z and Upload screenshots of the CPU, Mainboard, Memory, and SPD tabs. In the SPD tab, upload an image of each slot. To upload all screenshots, it would be best to:generate the images using the Snipping Tool,
go to where the images are saved,
right click in a blank area within the folder where the images are saved,
create a new folder,
name the folder CPUZ,
select all the images,
place the pointer over an image,
press and hold down the left mouse button and drag the image (all images should move with it),
drop the images into the CPUZ directory you created,
create a compressed (zipped) folder of CPUZ
upload the .zip file to the forums.
Run some memory related diagnostics:

Hello, I have an HP Pavilion g series laptop (running win7) that is in a continuous restarting loop. This happened after the computer auto updated (windows update). I do not know what was updated, but now every time the laptop starts up it seems to be in a continuous rebooting loop after the windows logo then a blue flash. I am unable to go into safe mode or any other mode as I keep getting redirected to a page that gives me two options:Launch Startup Repair or Start Windows Normally. Startup repair gives me the same results as trying to run in safe mode.

By turning the auto-restart on system failure off i was able to read what the blue error message, which says:
-

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is your first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check you hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive curruption, and then restart your computer.

Answer:Help with blue screen auto reboot, Stop: 0x0000007B error screen

Bug Check 0x7B: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

The INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE bug check has a value of 0x0000007B. This bug check indicates that the Microsoft Windows operating system has lost access to the system partition during startup.





Quote:
Cause

The INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE bug check frequently occurs because of a boot device failure. During I/O system initialization, the boot device driver might have failed to initialize the boot device (typically a hard disk). File system initialization might have failed because it did not recognize the data on the boot device. Also, repartitioning the system partition or installing a new SCSI adapter or disk controller might induce this error.

This error can also occur because of incompatible disk hardware. If the error occurred at the initial setup of the system, the system might have been installed on an unsupported disk or SCSI controller. Some controllers are supported only by drivers that are in the Windows Driver Library (WDL). (These drivers require the user to do a custom installation.)

Answer:Pc freezing randomly no blue screen and no auto reboot

You have not generated any .dmp files since May 9th, but your previous crashes from early last month may be helpful. They were all Video TDR Error crashes:

It's not a true crash, in the sense that the bluescreen was initiated only because the combination of video driver and video hardware was being unresponsive, and not because of any synchronous processing exception.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash. As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds. If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating. Try removing a side panel and aiming a big mains fan straight at the motherboard and GPU. Run it like that for a few hours or days - long enough to ascertain whether cooler temperatures make a difference. If so, it might be as simple as dust buildup and subsequently inadequate cooling.

A few days back when i tried to restart my system having win XP, it displayed the message:
Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: windows\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM

Also, this file was present in c:\windows\repair

As instructed at microsoft website and at many other websites, I copied them from repair to config. But when I restarted my computer, it did not display any error message but after loading some files it automatically reboots.

Can someone tell me the cause and remedy for this?

(I also copied the security, software, sam and default files from repair to config as these were also missing from config!)

Hello,

it appears that I have the "System Check" virus. I've read some solutions as to how to remove and all mention the need to the reboot the system in safe mode with networking.

Here's my problem, when I press F8 after restarting the computer the menu that shows up just lists the disks on the computer... it doesn't show up the different modes to start windows.

It's windows 7.

I'm not sure if I'm doing something wrong, but you could you please help me figure this out. Either the reboot part in safe mode or trying to remove the virus in normal mode?

I have Avast installed. I was just browsing away and all of a sudden I got a message saying "Malware", then the computer restarted itself. A bunch of messages showed up after restart and I couldn't do anything... until the computer restarted itself again. I tried system restore, it failed... and now that restore point is gone. Somehow, without me not doing anything, now I can access the internet.. but I see no folders(must be hidden), no shortcuts, etc etc.

Sorry for the long message and thank you for reading. I'd appreciate if someone could assist me.

Welcome to Major Geeks!

This has happened twice. It started last week while running itunes (playing music) and nothing else. happened again last night, also same scenario.

For no apparent reason (machine is less than a year old) the computer will go to a blank, black screen and the message "operating system not found" will appear. I press and hold the power button to turn it off, I turn it right back on, and it's fine.

I did get a BSOD last night, but itunes wasn't running and I had just connected my GPS running watch through USB. I can't tell if these are related, of course.

Hello !! Welcome to SF !!

Go to your BIOS setting and check the boot order make sure Hard disk is selected first. I have seen if the boot order is different sometimes we used to have this problem. Make sure your USB is never plugged it while rebooting the System.

Hope this helps,

My Windows 7 needs help getting past a blue screen at start-up after I restarted during a slow diskcheck I scheduled. The screen suggests disabling or uninstalling any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. It says to run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart the computer. I already tried safe mode but even that gives me the same blue screen. I assume the computer wants me to continue the disk check it started, but how? Restarting doesn't continue the disk check because it's been canceled with ESC. Is there any way for me to enter a command prompt so that I can type CHKDSK /F? I just want to cancel any problems causing this blue screen, whether that means forcing a disk check somehow or turning it off somehow. The STOP number is 0x00000024
Thanks

Edit: I don't know what to do.

Answer:Blue screen at start-up after canceling disk check by manual reboot

You can try booting to the W7 dvd and running startup repair options, but interrupting checkdisk scans is dangerous and the ability to recover without reinstalling the OS is not guaranteed.

Answer:Blue screen at start-up after canceling disk check by manual reboot

Hi, boot to safe mode and use the advanced startup select "repair your computer" the windows RE (recovery environment) will load select "command prompt" I would run the R switch rather then the F.


Running chkdsk/Sfc within the RE (recovery environment)
First determine what Drive the OS has been assigned by the RE (important)

At command prompt (x: sources) type:-

Code:
bcdedit | find ?osdevice?
(Must inc?) (press enter).

Now use the returned as the drive letter for OS assume C: (if not change to whatever you see)

At the x sources type:-
Code:
chkdsk c:/r
(press enter), 5 stages of chkdsk will run.
can take awhile.

If you desire you can also run the System file verifier

To run sfc/scannow
at the x: sources type:-

Code:
sfc/scannow /offbootdir=c:\ /offwindir=c:\windows
(press enter)
sfc will run can take awhile

Hello. I have a few questions to ask regarding partitions and Windows 7 during the Windows 7 installation process.

Earlier today I installed on a single hard drive (no other hard drives connected to my motherboard, just one hard drive) Windows 7 Professional.
Now, during the install process this time, when I get to the window that states, "Where do you want to install Windows?" I have a much different listing of partitions that I have never had before when I installed Windows 7.

To note: When I install Windows 7, I use a COMPLETELY clean unallocated hard drive with no other partitions for systems or storage. I like to use New Simple Volumes to create my partitions. I let Windows 7 create the partition or volume for me during the installation process. So, for example: I have a 500 GB hard drive, I use 150 GB for Windows 7 and leave the rest unallocated space. This is rather simple method.

Now, THIS TIME, I see that in the listing for options of hard drive space when I am at that window "Where do you want to install Windows?", I create my 150 GB simple volume partition and then find out that now I have a partiton of 100 MB first listed (Disk 0 Partition 1) named "Partiton 1: System Reserved" (Type: "System") preceeding my created 150 GB "Partition 2" (Disk 0 Partition 2) (Type: "Primary"). Where did this come from? Why was it created? What does it do? I didn't see this last time I installed Windows 7??... Read more

Answer:RE: Windows 7 Installation, Another New Partition Auto Created "System Reserved"???

Hi

The 100MB partition in Windows 7 is for the Bitlocker, Bootable tools to allow you to recover Windows etc, not worth deleting this partition as its a very worthwhile one to have.

Some old info from the beta teams blog HERE on this, the images may not show now.

Summary-

So, just now I was trying to set-up a wireless network from my xbox 360 and PS3. I had just hit "locate wireless units" or something, and a weird blue screen flashed up ( wierd in terms the text was different, and it looked different altogether from vista/xp). The message said something about finding a file and how it required a reboot to clean it. After it rebooted, I booted it into Safe mode with networking, at the prompt. I don't know where to go from here.

Btw, I'm not very tech savy, so please be patient with me. Also, Here is some info I think you need to know:

Antivirus- Free Avg 2011, up to date, I ran it manually on a quick/or full scan recently. I belive it is also on a schedule for every night.

OS- Windows 7 64-bit Home edition ( should be up to date)

I believe Java and all other programs are up to date..

My PS3 has been on possible-malicious sites. But the PS3 was off and not connected to my laptop at the time I recieved the message of the virus..

So here is my problem: Occasionally, after reboot I get "Error loading operating system". After that the only thing I can do is shut down the computer and fix the windows MBR/Boot Sector (see bellow?).

I'm running a clean install of Windows XP Pro SR3 on a Lenovo T61 laptop. I have confirmed that in the majority of times the problem with the MBR/Boot Sector happens during the windows session and not necessarily upon reboot. When it happens there are no symptoms in windows except for when I try to run chkdsk, I get the following error:

"The type of the filesystem is RAW.
CHKDSK is not available for RAW drives."

I've had my T61 for 6 months now and I've had this problem about 15 times so far. Obviously this makes my T61 unstable and is becoming a major problem (I like to shut down the computer before taking it anywhere, and I don't really use Hibernate).

Solving this problem is very easy and takes 3 minutes? But the Win XP CD is needed for the fix and I don't want to carry it around with me everywhere. And anyway, it's annoying and makes my T61 crippled?

To fix the problem:
1 Change AHCI -> Compatibility in BIOS.
2 Boot using the Windows XP CD.
3 Enter the Recovery Console (press R).
4 "fixboot"
5 "fixmbr"
6 Restart ("exit").
7 Change back to AHCI in Bios.

After that the computer works perfect until the next time? Things I have tried so far:

After my computer started going into hibernation w/o any reason and during work last week I decided to install all new Windows and Lenovo updates and at the end update the BIOS. Everything went fine until my computer rebooted during flashing the BIOS. Since I get past loading the BIOS/ the Thinkpad screen I guess flashing the BIOS went fine, but on booting Windows I get a blue screen telling me to"Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run chkdsk /f to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer"Having had the auto-hibernation problem, I already did check for viruses before installing and I didnt install any new hardware either. I ran a full checkup of my hard drive using PC Doctor and it didn't show anything out of the ordinary.  Unfortunately I can't remember all the Lenovo updates I installed but I think "Fix for issue of HDD with HD detection for Windows 7 and Vista - Notebooks" might have been one of them. Is there a way to get a list of newly installed (Lenovo) software using "Rescue and Recovery" ? Or would it just be enough to re-install said update from a USB-device? I hope someone can help, thanks in advance

Answer:T61p: (hard drive) blue screen on auto-reboot after lenovo software/BIOS-update

I forgot to add the tech info given in the blue screen, it's STOP: 0x0000007b (0x80599BB0, 0xc0000034, 0X00000000,0X00000000) so basically my computer can't access the boot device. The question now is, is there a way to install a new or the old hard drive controller/driver in "Rescue and Recovery" or is it better to run a partly recovery of my OS?

This started probably about 3-4 days ago, it happened just randomly when my computer had the windows update icon in the corner and i was installing the updates. Then just randomly my computer froze for a good second then went into the blue screen. Which was "BAD_POOL" then the "STOP : 0X0000" error saying i had a hardware or software malfunction.

Anyways i was reading around, and couldn't find much of anything. So i did a windows recovery, reinstalled windows (not completely just recovery) after that everything seemed fine.

After the restore i was left with SP2 and windows explorer 6, so i decided to reupdate them again back to SP3 and windows explorer 7. Upon update, i got SP3 installed but after that, the 20 other updates all concluced with my computer going back into the blue screen.

So now every time i try to update it goes to the bluescreen. Is there a fix for this besides doing all the updates manuallly?

Also i was wondering if maybe someone could explain why and how this is happening.

Thanks, Blue.

Answer:Windows goes into "BAD_POOL" blue screen after attemtping windows update

One way to keep SP3 and IE 7 on is to go into the add/remove programs and check off the "show all updates" option found there. That will then list all recent updates were you can pick and choose certain recents to be removed one at a time. Once you hit the one causing the problem remember to uncheck that when the small update window appears.

One tip to get around seeing that automatically tossed into the mix is to turn off the automatic updates option and simply go to the Start menu update link there. Then you can go through the list of updates shown to make that particular one is omitted.

I'm not so much worried about fixing the blue screen (yet) just finding out what it's even saying.

I start up my EEE PC 1000he and right after the XP Load screen comes up the system shows a blue screen then restarts. I tried to load in via safe mode to change the restart on blue screen setting, but I can't even load into safe mode.

I'm not really sure what I could've done, but that's not my concern at the moment.

Is there a registry file that can be changed, or button to be pressed during boot to keep it from shutting down and allow me to read the blue screen?

(If anyone's wondering "How can you change the registry when you can't load Windows", I can load the registry into a PE and edit it from there)

I'm working on getting USB bootable memtest and some other stuff, but for the time being I just want to know what the BSOD is saying.

Answer:Blue screen on Windows load - then reboot

Start (or restart) the PC, then start tapping the F8 key about twice a second.
(Some PCs use F8 for other options, in that case try F5. On some Multimedia keyboards you may have to hold a separate Function key down so the Fx keys will not be seen as media keys)

The following Menu should appear:
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA Mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Disable automatic restart on system failure
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu

Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.

Select the Disable automatic restart on system failure option

G'day
 
I've just spent that last few days re-installing Windows 7 Pro x64 onto a new SSD. All my drivers are installed and up to date with no yellow exclamation marks and all the Win updates installed successfully. I have been re-installing all my software and games etc without any problems or errors. Today Windows Update found 13 more updates containing security and system updates for Win x64, Framework 4, 3.5.1, and a definitions for Office-14. After installing this and clicking on the restart windows button I saw the 'applying updates counter' then experienced a blue screen.
After rebooting I chose start Windows normally and windows update reports that the updates installed successfully but I'm now wondering whether I need to start over and re-install everything all over again or perhaps I'll get away with simply ignoring it. It did produce an error log but I need somebody whom understands it to diagnose what the cause was.

Hello As the title says, I have this blue screen with that error, the strange thing is this error occurs every time when I'm not working the pc, for example if I leave my pc for 10 minutes or less without working on it, it crashes and restarts, so about 98% of the time it happens when I'm not working, but sometimes it does occur when I'm working on the pc.

I don't know much of what I should provide but I heard it's a good idea to include the files in the minidump folder and here they are:

Select Last known Good Configuration; then, allow the computer to reboot.
Upon reboot, all should be 'normal'.

Hello,
I have a problem with windows xp sp2.
Was playing War3 and the system crashed. I figured a buggy game or something but i go to restart a few hours later and get this.

The Problem seems to be caused by the following file: sptd.sys

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

I took the drive out and slaved it to another computer and changed the file name to dpts.old but that didnt do anything, just gave me another error. So i put it back the way it was backed up everything that i wanted and went to re-install windows. But that wont work either. I boot from cd and the it loads and loads and loads. Then after loading drivers and what not at the bottom for a while it says something windows. Then restarts and does the same thing everytime. I am 100% stuck dont know what i should. I can slave it to another computer, and do whatever changing needs to be done i would prefer to get my old system working but if not at the least be able to re-install windows..
Im stuck really need some help...

Hi,

Yesterday I tried to reboot my PC after having left it on all night. I got as far as the Windows XP splash screen before the blue screen of death appeared suddenly for about half a second (Not enough for me to read what the actual error is) and the computer began rebooting again. It now continues in this reboot loop no matter which mode I try to boot up in.

I recently tried to install another 2GB of RAM on top of the 2GB of RAM that I already have, but it turns out that the new RAM was faulty (I was going to buy it second hand from a friend). Ever since then I have noticed that my RAM has been lagging, and my PC is struggling with tasks that it didn't struggle with before.

I doubt it has anything to do with the problem but I also installed a brand new soundcard recently. On top of that, I downloaded four different archive files (Both .rar and .zip) using Emule recently, which all turned out to be corrupted. It strikes me as slightly odd that all four of them would be corrupted, and in my haste I forgot to virus scan them, so I'm wondering if maybe they contained viruses.

If anybody could offer me any suggestions as to what the problem is likely to be, and how to solve it on as tight a budget as possible, I would be extremely appreciative.

Okay, so to get to the point, the problem is, I boot the computer, everything runs as normal untill just after the Microsoft Corporation Loading screen, after which for a second I get a flash of Blue Screen, much too quick to read and the system reboots. I've tried booting into Safe Mode, and Command Prompt, but I get the blue screen again, after it loads \windows\system32\drivers\crcdisk . I'm running an Asus X50RL with Pentium Dual Core inside, 2.4Ghz and an X55 series Graphics card (I think) Its also running Vista 32-bit. I've had very few problems with my Laptop over the years, and I'm hoping someone can help me. The Main reason I would like it fixed, is to be frank, I don't like windows 7 and want to keep my Vista. Thankyou in advance to anyone that can help me.

Hi all
Recently, I've been having problems with my computer constantly rebooting itself, blue screens and just freezing. It happens no matter what I'm doing, even when left idle I would come back and I would find its frozen or rebooted. This PC is mainly used for gaming, as well as University work, but it seems to freeze when nothing is running or just the internet.
The freezing mainly happens on start up and within the first 10-20minutes of the computer being on, after that it's usually fine. I've had problems with it freezing on the motherboard splash screen, and while windows is loading at start up. Sometimes the computer would freeze on startup with a completely blank screen, and all lights on (disc tray etc).
I've tried a few things, like reinstalling sound and video drivers and cleaning the registry using software recommended to me but nothing has fixed it. I only did a clean install of windows 7 a month ago, as the problems were before that but not as bad as this.

Here are my computer specs:
Windows 7 32-bit Home Premium
AMD Athlon 64 X2 4800 CPU 2.50 GHz

ASUS M2V motherboard
250GB HDD
3GB DD2 RAM
GeForce 9800GT GPU

Any advice or help would be great and really appreciated, also if anymore information is needed please ask. (I've attached the .dmp file but only after reading this forum I set windows to not automatically restart and dump to the minidump folder).

Thanks
Alex

I know this has been posted before on these forums, but, the fixes posted were unable to fix my system, so I figured I may as well post MY symptoms and see if I can get some advice.

Ok, so, I recently attempted to install SP3 and restarted my computer when prompted to, and when my pc restarted, all seemed to work ok. The "Professional" word on the boot screen was removed, showing that SP3 had been installed. But, when it loaded past the boot screen, the screen went black and restarted automatically. I disabled automatic restart and then received the blue screen error "STOP: c0000135 winsrv was not found"

First, I followed the instructions on the microsoft kb page which told me to boot into recovery console and try the cd c:\$ntservicepackuninstall$\spuninst method. This did not work, for when I enter that it says "Directory was not found." or something of that sort.

I also tried copying the .dll from the C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386 folder to System32 through recovery console using the command COPY C:\Windows\ServicePackFiles\i386\WINSRV.DLL C:\Windows\System32\WINSRV.DLL. When asked to overwrite, I said yes. It copied succesfully, and I still receive the same error. I tried this again, but first deleted the DLL and then copied it fresh so an overwrite was not needed. Still no success.

Hi I reinstalled windows 8.1 on my Samsung NP530U3C-A10EE. And now the problem this that I can't boot it without usb stick that contains windows installation files. I can boot up windows and remove the usb stick evertything is working perfectly, but if I try to boot up win without usb, it gives error "Operating system not found. Press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart". VOLUME C:\ is one where windows are installed (SSD), System Reserved is the system partition that windows create automaticaly (SSD), volumes D:\ and F:\ are my hdd volumes D:\ is empty & F:\ is stored with my personal files (photos, music etc.)

P.S if i make C:\ active I can't boot up even with usb stick plugged in...
Maybe someone knows the solution? Thanks for responses.

Then follow these special steps to install to UEFI (Unified Extensible Firmware Interface) - Install Windows 7 with - Windows 7 Forums

Hi everyone,
I had windows 10 installed on my Dell Inspiron 7720 laptop for around a year. I wanted to roll back to windows 8.1, so i downloaded the usb media from microsoft website.I booted from the pen drive and formatted all the drives. After that I proceeded to install windows 8.1. When the setup had just started copying files, my laptop shut down due to low battery. Now when i am trying to boot from usb or dvd, i am getting an error saying "An operating system was not found. Try disconnecting any drives that don't contain an operating system. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del to resart".
Also, when I am trying to change the boot order or to load default settings in bios, I am getting an error - "FORMSET 98FBBCFB-1392-4FDE-ABB8-C41CC5AD7D6D
Failed to save storage: Boot_mem-Boot_ITEMS. Status Access Denied"
Someone suggested me to reset the bios by reseating the CMOS Battery. Did that but still getting same error. I have run out of idea now, and desperately need help. If someone has any suggestion, please help me out.

Hi there,

I am at my wits end. I have tried everything on the net and I'm still left with a blue screen that goes into a loop whenever I start up. I've tried booting up in safe mode but Lenovo C20 machine does not seem to recognize the Fn+F8 or F8 (the only key that works is F12 which takes me to the boot menu in Lenovo). What do I do from here as I'm clueless. My screen at the moment is frozen on Diagnostic starting... (It's been like that now for the last 5 minutes). Switching this off will just take me back to the loop. I am losing valuable time and money trying to sort out. Can someone please, please help as I'm slowly giving up!

Hello,
So; I have a Dell Inspiron 7720 laptop with a reformatted hard drive and I need to reinstall windows 7. I do not have the original Reinstallation DVD that came with this exact laptop but I do have one from another Dell Laptop ( a Studio 1558) and another Windows 7 disc from a desktop (the discs and the OS that was on the laptop before the HDD fail are all Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit). When I turn on the laptop with either disc and mash F12 and then select "CD/DVD/CD-RW Drive" from the boot options the screen immediately displays "Operation System not found" and stays at this screen until restarted.
I have run a full diagnostic check and everything passed, I have made sure the CD-RW Drive is no.1 in boot priority (don't imagine that matters if I  manually select it). The HDD and CD-RW Drive are detectable in BIOS too.... I have no idea what the problem is, any help will be greatly appreciated!!
Many thanks in advance,

Whenever playing games it usually crash right when it starts, though not at the menu. The game this keeps happening on is Football Manager 2010. Has only just started happening i have had the game over a week and havent had a problem. I know that my laptop does struggle to run it but has worked prior to this fine.

Quickly quits out on the game then a blue screen comes up but before you can read anything it restarts. Then when logging back on gives you the message saying The system has recovered from a serious error, send error report or dont send.

Im not the best on computer but have gained this information.

Help! This is so weird. My computer was frozen so I tried to restart it. I was re-booting it, but the "Starting Windows" screen was taking a really long time. I tried restarting it several times, it did nothing. I tried running the second option it gave me when i restarted, which was something like "run system restore" but that did the same, on a different loading screen. I have a HP Pavillion DV7, and it came with a "Quick Links" screen, before the startup, where I can access an internet browser, mail, calendar and skype. I am using that right now, so I don't understand why I can't go to my regular windows screen? I'm really confused, I tried pressing the delete button and f10 right when I started my screen, but it would be a black screen then my computer would shut down.... My warranty ran out last month, please help?
 

Answer:Can't boot up windows past the "starting windows" screen, can't run system restore

Re: Can't boot up windows past the "starting windows" screen, can't run system restor

Tap F8 while booting and see if you can get to safe mode. If you can, try a recovery from there. You also want to backup if you get there. Sounds like a failing hard drive as a first quick guess so scan your drive for errors.

Windows Explorer, right click drive C, check for errors.

I have an old Gateway Select CPU with an AMD 800 MHZ, 30 gig Hardrive and I believe 256 RAM. This was a refurbished unit that I got from Ubid. It came with recovery disks that I have used successfully about 3 years ago. My son downloaded so much crap o his computer that it finally crashed again. When trying to use the Restore software this time, it froze. So I put in the Start-up floppy and when start-up got to the point of asking if I wanted to create a partition, I did. I have used Fdisk to make sure that the partition is active and it is. However, without the start-up floppy I recieve the "No operating system found" message and using the floppy after it runs thru the checks it eventually gets around to the A:/ promt. During the checks, it does not locate any of the drivers which is probably why I can't even do "setup" using the floppy and the Windows 98 se CD. I would like to get the computer to recognize the CD Rom so that I can put in Disk 1 of the Restore software and continue to "Write zeroes" to the hardrive and start over again with tis machine. Or at least be able to run "set-up" successfully. Any help is greatly appreciated, but keep in mind I am not very bright when it comes to technology.

Platform: Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.

I've observed that applications that normally would require UAC elevation don't display it. The application then fails with an error because of insufficient privilege. For example, if I download an installer, and run it on another system, Windows shows the standard UAC prompt asking for permission to run it at elevated privilege. On my system, some setting has become screwed up, and the prompt is not shown. Moreover, it seems to "auto-deny" the request, and the application then fails with a permission error.

Now, if I elevate the application manually, by right-clicking, and selecting "Run as administrator..." it works fine. But on a properly configured system, I don't have to do that -- the application asks itself.

As a specific example, all Firefox updates now fail automatically, because the UAC prompt never appears, and it defaults to "auto-deny." If I download the Firefox installer and run it manually (with admin privileges) it works fine. Other installers are similar -- the problem is not Firefox-specific.

So: what setting could cause this behavior and how do I correct it? Some details:
- I have a standard Windows 7 "full user" account with admin privileges.
- UAC is set to the default option in Control Panel
- It used to work as expected, but some setting has become screwed up.
- I know that a format/reinstall would fix this but I don't want to do that right now.

Answer:Windows 7 UAC elevation problem -- seems to "auto-deny" most application installers?

From the run dialog, open secpol.msc. Expand Security Settings, Local Policies and Security Options. On the list to the right, scroll all the way to the bottom and review the User Access Control Policies.

Pay special attention to:
* Detect Application Installations and prompt for elevation
* Only elevate UIAccess applications that are installed in secure locations
* Behavior of the Elevation prompt for standard users
* Behavior of the Elevation prompt for Adminsitratrs in Admin Approval Mode

I am using XP Pro and the automated update just downloaded the recent updates so i told it to install them. Then it restarted the computer after prompting me to.

I am now getting a "c000021a The Windows Logon Process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000018 The system has been shutdown"

I have tried to get into Safe Mode, but it still give the error to go into safe mode, I went into the Recovery Console, but not sure if I can do anything useful in here. I was thinking of trying a repair, but would prefer not. Is there a command line version of the XP roll-back feature, or does anyone know how to fix this problem in general? Or is the only solution as it stands to do a Repair Install?

Thanks, James

hey guys i've just gotten this error on my computer 0x0000009c and on the top it says MACHINE CHECK EXCEPTION and right after i got this error i restarted and then after a few fail attempts i went and put my install CD in and went to the BIOs to change boot mode to CD and after that i click boot from cd and it starts booting then restarts at the windows 7 LOGO when trying to get into login screen at startup and restarts and i tryed it again and it just restarts so it wont even startup passed the boot LOGO. please help me i even tryed startup repair and i get 0x0000009c MACHINE CHECK EXCEPTION still just like when the PC did it the first time. hehe i've even tryed USB instead of using disc to reinstall windows but it just restarts at the boot logo and never lets me do anything so i have no access to even get in windows. I also even tryed start from last known config and no luck.

if anyone had this and knows if it is a hardware problem or a windows problem please help me but if its a windows problem then why is the boot CD not booting up hmmm.

Extra Info: the first time it happened i was talking to some friends on teamspeak and listening to pandora and such nothing non normal it was the same thing i do everyday.

Also have no acess to windows as i cant repair it because the blue screen comes up and i cant start it up because it restarts and never starts up again so it just keeps restarting everytime i click "Start windows normally.

Answer:Windows 7 Blue Screen 0x0000009c MACHINE CHECK EXCEPTION

Hi,

Did the constant restarts occur after you performed a Start up Repair?

If so, it sounds like your machine is in a Start up Infinity Repair Loop,
follow this tutorial if that is the case:

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/139576-startup-repair-infinite-loop-recovery.html

If this is not the case then follow this tutorial:

http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/219533-troubleshooting-windows-7-failure-boot.html

Does the issue exist in Safe-mode?

The error 0x0000009c is usually related to a hardware issue. Similar to a STOP 0x124.
It may result from overheating, or from failed hardware - RAM, CPU, PSU, etc.
Also overclocking can cause that paticular error too.

I would suggest you check the hardware settings in your bios, starting with the RAM,
and restore default settings. Ensure there's no overheating of the system. If your overclocking....STOP.

Also please follow this tutorial:

http://www.sevenforums.com/crash-lockup-debug-how/35349-stop-0x124-what-means-what-try.html

Hope this helps.

Cheers

Dave

Hi,
My computer running ME recently started crashing. It mostly happens when I run IE however sometimes happens if I (for example) run publisher and simply try to open a file. Not sure if I'm having hardware problems or if this is due to a bug/defect. I've run adaware and keep my norton antivirus up to date. Nothing reported with these.

I've included my hijack log in hopes someone can offer advise.

As the title suggests, I have two problems:

When I start my laptop, it shows the HP logo, begins to boot and is almost instantly interrupted by a white screen that scrolls down from the top. It reboots right after the white screen.

I am able at the HP logo screen able to navigate to System Restore and that is where I run into my next problem.

When the System Restore window opens for confirmation it shows that "Local Disk (C) (System)" status: "Ready to restore" and the check-box next to it is checked.

The next line has a empty check-box for "Local Disk (C)" with the status: "The drive cannot be found."

I can also succesfully boot into Safe Mode with Networking. I can access all my files. Which leads me to believe that it is a hardware problem. Possibly the motherboard or graphics card.

Answer:Windows 10 update is stuck on the blue "welcome back!" Screen!

Perhaps your computer hangs on an "invalid" driver. Try disconnecting all devices so you only have the bare computer and try again booting.

I have a brand new build with Windows 8.1 freshly installed. Onboard graphics seem to work perfectly. I go to put in my old GTS 250, and it boots at a low resolution which is generally normal without drivers. I go and grab the latest stable Nvidia drivers. Installation completes and I restart my computer. I'm then greeted by a blue screen with a sad face telling me my computer can't boot.

Upon restart, it enters some sort of self-repair cycle, which--of course--is "unable to repair" my PC.

I throw in the 8.1 disc and proceed to do a manual startup repair. It fails.

I attempt to perform a system restore. It is frozen in the process of restoring for hours.

I format and reinstall Windows 8.1. I try using Windows Update instead of downloading the graphics drivers myself. After the first update completes and I restart my PC, I get the same blue-screen-sad-face message as before.

Is this a software or hardware issue? Any resources to point me in the right direction for remedying this situation would be greatly appreciated.
 

Answer:Blue "sad face" screen after installing Nvidia drivers on fresh Windows 8.1 install

I've been having this annoying problem since Saturday, on my ASUS laptop which has Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit edition (build 7600) integrated into it. I haven't installed any new softwares/hardwares and haven't visited any "inappropriate" (lol) sites lately either, so I don't know what caused it. Sometimes it happens right after the "Welcome" screen and sometimes after 4-5 minutes if I'm lucky. Same situation with all the reboot modes. (But today I couldn't even open it. Lights on the keyboard are turned on when I try, but nothing appears on the screen. I'll keep on trying, though. I still need to save some private files as well as the dump reports to post on here if needed.)

Errors on the blue screen vary like these, as I took little notes of them before:

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION

BAD_POOL_HEADER

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

CACHE_MANAGER

I used Windows 95, 98, XP and Vista over more than 10 years, yet I never experienced one single "blue screen" error with none of them. I'm hoping to get over this with your appreciated help on here. I know I'll lose all the files on my hd if I take the pc to the technical service...
Edit: I managed to open the computer on the "safe mode" and copied these dump reports quickly before it gives the error again. (Attached to this post.)

My 2 yr old eMachines T2890 has worked great until yesterday. My wife tried to start the computer and it loaded past the black XP screen and then went to the blue Windows XP screen with the logo. It won't load up past that point . The mouse works, though. You can see the cursor moving.

I've tried control/alt/delete and it does nothing. I've tried hitting the "enter" key. I've tried restarting the computer. It sticks on the blue screen with the XP logo.

I'm trying to reformat the hard drive on our 2nd computer, and I have properly changed (and saved) the BIOS settings for Boot priority to "CD/DVD". In fact, I disabled all other choices for 2nd and 3rd priorities, etc. All the tech support/instruction articles I've found tell me I've succeeded here if I get the line "Press any key to boot from CD", which I have. However, when I press a key, in a moment it starts Windows up just like always, instead of giving me the blue screen.

The CD seems fine. I checked it from within windows, and the computer reads it correctly, and when I click on Setup, it brings up the menu of installation options, just like I want it to from the blue screen. Its just that I can't get to that point after the "Press any key..." part in the boot process.

What am I missing here?

Hello,

I'm not sure weather I am posting this the right thread, however I have a problem which seems to be partly to do with the windows 7 operating system. Anyway I would be grateful if anyone could help me out

I got a new computer on Thursday from Scan.co.uk, it seemed to work fine until yesterday (Monday) when I got a blue screen of death and something saying "Windows has been shut down to protect your memory" however I was unable to read the message as the computer just restarted. 1 hour and 4 blue screens later I some how found that the blue screen only seemed to occur when the program "Steam" was open.

Later that night I ran a "Who's crashed check" this is what it returned:

Answer:"Windows has been shut down" blue screen of death

Not an expert on identifying system messages but you might want to try removing Steam from Safe Mode. If this won't help then either some drivers you installed are causing the problem or indeed Memory modules are faulty.

Hello,

During the last six months, my laptop has been working fine.
Nevertheless, during this period, the following issue happened twice when I shut down the system : the blue screen "Windows is shutting down" last forever and I had to force manually the operational system to shut down.
I scanned the windows XP pro Sp3 operational system installed on my laptop with KIS ("paranoid" setup) and MBAM and nothing was detected.
I am suspecting a program has not been ended correctly and this probably caused the blue screen "Windows is shutting down" to last forever.

Please, I would like to ask if it exists a solution, a tool than can solve the blue screen "Windows is shutting down" lasting forever?

Do you think my operational system has been damaged when I forced manually it to shut down? If yes, does it exist a tool to fix this operational system?

Regards,

John

Hi. This is my first post and hopefully placed into the correct sub-forum. I am running Windows XP.First and foremost, I have become infected with the Windows System Defender trojan. I have downloaded Malwarebyte Anti-Malware to help clear it off and have also tried to remove it manually. When trying to remove manually the trojan would not let me CTRL-ALT-DEL to kill the processes/.dll's. Also, any time I tried to run Malwarebyte Anti-Malware, either from my desktop or off a thumb drive, it would close the program. I was able to kill to Locate and delete Windows System Defender registry entries. I was not able to search and unregister Windows System Defender DLL libraries. So in that sense I half assed removed/stop the trojan, but its still there.At a loss since I couldn't get Malwarebyte Anti-Malware to run OR able to fully and completely remove the trojan manually since I was unable to get into the Task Manager to remove the .dll's associated with the trojan, I re-started my computer, went back into Windows, and went to re-start it in Safe Mode thinking I could run Malwarebyte Anti-Malware in safe mode to solve my problem.

Windows 7
 
Blue Screen Warning said Windows was Shut Down to prevent further possible damage to my computer. If the first time, it said to just re-boot. I did so and the computer was VERY slow on re-boot but finally I got into Safe mode.
The most recent download prior to Blue Screen shut down was OBIT Malware program. Though I doubt that caused this problem I removed the free program using Revo Uninstaller as I thought maybe OBIT was interferring with Bit Defender or some other security program on my computer (I use Malwarebytes).
 
The real culprit I suspect came when I downloaded some free privacy software and with it came White Smoke toolbar, and a host of annoying add-ons. I carefully deleted or disabled all of these add-ons, and then deleted White Smoke toolbar from Chrome and IE 7, and Firefox. I have not seen any of these programs/viruses/malware reload.
 
A white smoke - screen lockup (delay) did occur while these add-ons were on the computer and I know this is not a good sign.
 
Right now, everything is running well. I ran Malwarebytes and it did find some malware and I removed it; it has not reloaded so far. I ran MB again and it was clean. Ditto SuperAntiSpyWare and Bit Defender.
 
Maybe I am over reacting but thought better safe than sorry...if some worm is onboard I'd like to kill it before it multiplies...but I just do not know based on scans I've run!
