Preferred Solution: booting and installation errors

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all,

I've just had a computer with a HDD error and have run a repair installation of Windows XP on it. This was successful however when trying to open Office programs and also Access the programs and core files seem to be damaged. I tried doing repair installations on these but errors came up, so I uninstalled Office 2007, cleaned the registry with CCleaner and then tried to install again off the CD. This threw up errors again. The error code is Error 2908. Please provide me with some advice urgently.

TIA

Hi -

I'm having serious problems booting and would appreciate any help..

Last night when using my PC, all of a sudden (no hardware/software changes) Chrome crashed then Windows starting generally running very slowly. I couldn't reopen Chrome, every time it froze again. Eventually it was going so slow that I couldn't do anything else so tried to restart it, but it froze, and I switched it off by holding onto the power button.

I was able to load up Windows again one more time, but couldn't open Chrome and some other programs, and it was generally running slow again.

Since then I've restarted several times and have got various errors, including 'Oxc00000e9 Info: An unexpected I/O error has occurred' and 'Windows failed to start'. If I restart now my computer it goes up to the 'Windows is loading' screen with Windows 7 logo, but then restarts and takes me to a 'Windows failed to start' screen with options to 'Launch startup repair' and 'Start windows normally'.

I've tried using my boot DVD to run startup repair and sometimes it says 'repaired' and other times came up with an error saying it could not be repaired, and in the log mentioning an external device? I'm not sure what this could be as it's just my keyboard and mouse connected via USB. It says there are no restore points for me to go back to too.

Edit: I just ran the inbuilt 'startup repair' (not sure what the difference is to the one on the WIndows 7 boot disk) and after it it restarted, and I got another 'Windows f... Read more

I starting having a problem with fatal exception errors, several, then a starting problem with the following message while trying to boot up: Invalid VXD dynamic link call to device number 3, service B. It says to run the windows setup program to correct, but that doesn't seem to work.

I have bought a new hardrive and reinstalled all software and the error message returns after several times booting up.

Sometime the computer works fine and then all of a sudden it will lock up, sometimes with a fatal eception error and sometimes not. Everything has been wiped clean and re-installed several times only to wind up with the same problem.

Any suggestion?

but it never seems to be able read the disk after I load it. Also, some very strange things have been happening on my system recently. On bootup today it checked my hard drives and deleted a bunch of files, not sure which ones, but it looked like they had to do with Norton Anti-virus.

Also, I can't boot from my win2k startup disks!

Question: Booting errors

Hi everybody, this is my first post.

Recently, I have upgraded my Mobo and Cpu. Why I haven't checked out is that now I only have one IDE port, but many SATA. Unfortunately, all my cdrom drives are IDE and my HDD too. I have bought a USB cdrom drive.

Having problems with windows, I decided to reinstall it. I'm not particulary pro, and I installed it on the wrong partitions, leaving me with 2 OS on the same HD. Next to that, i had problems booting, something with NTLDR is missing. I followed all instructions on http://tinyempire.com/notes/ntldrismissing.htm and it worked for a certain time. After i suceeded to re-enter in windows, I've wiped out the partition in which i had installed windows previously. Now, everytime I try to boot, even with the Ndetect boot disk found on the previous website, nothing works. I come to choose my OS, but after selecting it, the computer reboot.

I have also my windows Xp cdrom, but it won't boot on my USB cdrom, even if selected corectly in the BIOS. When I do press F8 to select boot after post, it asks to press <ESC> to boot, but even if I press it nothing work, it continue to the OS selection screen.

I'm kinda screwed up, if anybody could help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Here is the problem:

I am attempting to reformat the hdd on a gateway computer and reinstall windows xp pro. The problem that I am having is that the gateway tower will not read the windows xp pro disk. What I did was I took the hdd and ran it to one of my own computers and installed the windows xp pro that way. Once I moved the hdd back to the gateway tower, all I get is a blinking _ on startup. Oddly enough, the computer I used to redo the windows xp pro os is also getting the blinking _ on startup, even though that main hdd wasn't touched or moved to another tower or even reformatted.

Basically, in my effort to fix one computer, I broke two. If there is anyone that can help out or offer any type of advice to fix both problems that I am having, please let me know asap. A buddy of mine suggested using a Windows 98 boot disk, then somehow running a virtual CD-ROM to run the XP Pro software that way, or using something through the DOS prompt. Another method he suggested was running the XP Pro installer on a computer that will boot the disk and then "hot swapping" the drives while it is on the setup screen.

Answer:Booting Errors - Need Help

OK so now you know two computers have totally different hardware "characters" so a system that runs in one won't run in another, you won't want to try that one again. Concentrate on getting a decent system into the one computer first so make your choice - preferably the one with the CD ROM that recognises a disk.

Also, I need to know that you aren't going to try installing on to two machines with the same disk otherwise advising you will be a waste of time.

So which one will you try to fix first and do you have a legitimate XP CD with a Certificate of Authenticity to use on it?

I am having a serious problem booting from my Windows Vista HDD.

I made some changed in my BIOS as i wanted to clock my CPU because my PC was running 2 slow. After making my alterations I restarted my computer and all was good. In the morning when I woke up, i turned on my Computer and whenever i turn on my PC now a message says: A Disk Read Error Occurred

When I restart the same thing happens again.
I have tried to use the repair function on the Vista CD, but this has no affect.

Earlier on I booted of Ubuntu in an attempt to save all my information, but it won't let me back my information on my Ext HDD as it says I have insufficient rights.

I recently installed vista 64 bit on my machine. It has not been a good process and I cannot get this thing to work in the slightest. I am currently getting an error that reads

Boot from CD
Disk boot error, insert system disk and press enter

Before anyone offers a suggection, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING BEFORE OFFERING ADVICE:

These are the things I have tried already:
1. Reinstalling again (4 times)
2. Using vista command prompt to fix the bcd file
3. using the vista startup repair option to find any problems and fix them (none found)

there are NO floppy drives, cd drives, or anything else that this system could possibly boot off of.

I have checked the bios and boot order to make sure the computer is trying the correct hard drive.

I have even tried going back to XP, but that didn't work since there are no sata drivers built into SP3 and the machine will not recognize my usb floppy.

I wanted to test the hard drives but ultimate boot cd could not see them. I have not made the ultimate boot cd for windows, I really do not want to go through that, it is entirely unnecessary.

Hi all,

I'm currently triple booting XP, Vista 64 and Windows 7 - all were running great until recently.

I upgraded my memory from 2GB to 4GB and not long after, I found it difficult to boot into the Vista 64 OS.

I get recovery errors on boot telling me that tcpip.sys is missing or corrupt, so I would try last known good configuration which promptly tells me that ntoskrnl.exe is missing/corrupt.

After several attempts to boot normally/go to last known good config, etc, the OS kicks in and I have no further problems until I have to reboot.

I have no problems using 2GB memory and I have booted up using different configs of memory

I have 2x1GB sticks and 1x2GB stick. I tested with 2gb stick on it's own - no problem; 2GB stick & 1x1GB stick (both tried) - no problem; and finally the original 2x1GB config again...no problem.

If anyone can suggest a workaround or quick fix that would be great. I have tried to look on the web for answers

NB - the MS "Hotfix" which is supposed to address the issue of 4GB problemsin X64 Vista - doesn't work. XP and Windows 7 are 32-bt, but I have had no problems using 64-bit variations of these OS's in the same triple boot config.

Now my graphics card has lost its driver. I coreected the driver and modem problem by reinstalling the drivers. 2 days later it back to a pink and blue screen and saying there is an issue with the modem again.

Hi all, hope someone can help with this! I've tried searching for this type of problem, but no luck - apologies if I'm going over the same ground.

I've got a homebuilt system with the following spec: Asus P4P800X-S, P4 3GHz CPU, 2x512 RAM, Maxtor 120Gb IDE (OS), WD 120Gb IDE (Data), Maxtor 160 Gb SATA (Audio etc)... I'll also state at this point that the boot order is set to FDD -> CD -> HDD in the BIOS.

On the primary HD I have two primary partitions with Win XP (one for general use, one for audio software, kept seperate because I've found the audio stuff a bit temperamental). Every now and then I've tried to get to grips with Linux, and last week I booted with my installer DVD, and reinstalled it again to give it another go. I let the installer partition the drive as it wanted to, /boot, with / and /home in a logical partition. When the PC refused to boot I thought I might have made a mistake to let the installer do things the way it wanted. Things got a bit confusing after that...

Next I tried to boot with Partition Magic 8, so I could wipe the new Linux partitions and go back to my old stable setup. However, Partition Magic only booted as far as the intitial intro screen before it displayed the text "divide error!" and refused to go any further. Hmm...

So I've spent quite literally all of today trying to find a solution to this...but to no avail. I'm dual booting Ubuntu, Windows Vista, and Windows XP via Grub boot loader 1.5. Ubuntu and Vista are partitioned on a 500GB Hard Drive while XP is running on a separate 300GB Hard Drive. I've been using this set-up for a little over and year and had absolutely no problem until around the start of December.

Every so often when using Vista (my main OS) my computer will completely lock up and either give me a Blue Screen error message or force me to restart it. Upon doing this, when I go to load up Vista again I'm greeted with yet another Blue Screen. I've been able to fix this problem by using the repair function on my OEM Vista install disc. However, today I got yet another crash, upon repairing via the install disc and restarting Vista I was given an error message claiming my vista activation wasn't valid. So, after a little bit of looking around I used this guide (http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/e...-4195a04143b1/) to solve the activation issue and get Vista back up and running. After logging on to Vista, everything seemed to be up and running fine. I went to control panel and turned off UAC controls (which I had been using prior to the crash for testing purposes) and restarted my computer. Problem solved right? Well...not exactly. Upon restarting Vista I was Greeted with yet ANOTHER error message telling me my MSI.DLL file (C:\Windows/System32/Msi.dll) was either corrupt o... Read more

I have a similar setup on one of the power PCs but RAID 0 on 2 SSDs & a single 300GB WD VelociRaptor on its own,

I put 96 gig of memory in the system  ( ECC registered 1333 like recomended). Windows 8.1 pro X64. Caviar black 2 tb hard drive.i put a gtx 1070 graphic s card (and it workds fine). I also put two xeon x5690 and both are detected fine. Machine was suppose to be a beast!....  Everything was detected fine, until this morning.  Now im getting error messages and the machine wont pass the booting screen. Here are the messages: 1) cpu fan not detected2)memory fan not detected3)memory warming conditions My bios is v03.10 I opened up the case to check on the fans during boot up and all of em are spinning properly, no crazy noise coming from the machine either.  All the fans are clean no dust and are spinnning properly. Its really odd because i must have booted the machine  20 times since installing OS and all and everything was going well, so im pretty sure everything is plugged fine. But during one boot up the machine was only detecting 81 gig of memory, and another time was detecting only 16 gig??  All i can think off is a failing motherboard right now but im not sure... maybe bios? Please i need your input and help ( i contacted the seller as well hopefully i can get some answers to fix the problem) thank you all for your help.

 PC was taking a VERY long time to boot, and run equally slow after finally getting the OS running.Performance monitor indicated the Hard Drive was 100% busy, though actual I/O was minimal.Attached hard drive to another PC, could read/write with no problems.  I had replaced hard drive 6 months ago and upgraded to Windows 10.  So I cloned it again, and cloned drive booted up (taking 4+ minutes) but then ran fine.  A restart would execute quickly.  Power down, and back to 4+ minutes to boot, though it sometimes would fail with errors and retry.Ran UEFI  diagnostics twice, got following results:Hard Drive   Failed   U0BSTH-7HC856-RXM561-60R603System         Failed   U0BSTH-7HC856-RXM561-60R603So, same Failure ID, but blamed hard drive once, second time blamed System.I suspect it is NOT the hard drive failing for 3rd time in 6 months.I installed all current drivers, Windows 10 is current, and the PC runs just fine once it gets booted.Possibly the AMD SATA controller?

Hello. Its been awhile since i needed your guys help. but things sure have taken an odd turn.

Lately my computer has been having odd errors. they usually look like this one but replace my browser error (I use Avant Browser) with any other program:


So i decided to do a system restore to back a few months when my computer wasn't acting this strange. I did the system restore and reset it back to march 2011.

Things were ok again for a day or so. then when i tried rebooting my computer about 15 minutes ago, my computer just kept going in a loop! windows wasn't booting at all.

I managed to get into safe mode (with networking!) and got back to my desktop. i started running a virus scan when all of a sudden i got a BSOD! I haven't seen one in a year and a half.

Here is all i could get from the BSOD before it rebooted:

INVALID_WORK_QUEUE_ITEM

STOP: 0X00000096 (0XF7C3FDLC; 0X80562-)




I'm sorry about the last one i was writing slow and i couldn't get it done in time.

Alright guys, I'm waiting for your advice. please help me out on this because I'm stumped. My OS is Windows XP SP3 pro.

Thanks again.

When the laptop is booting up, or when the laptop has finished booting up, there will be a blue screen which will pop up invariably. Usually, I am able to use my laptop after rebooting twice.

However, I realised the blue screen can reappear for as many as 3 times, each with a different message.

The beginning of the message is as follows:

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

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

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any Windows update you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical information:

*** STOP:0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80535AE3, 0xA987CB8C, 0x00000000)

Hi,

The problem I have at the moment is very similar to this thread on the forums.

To the best of my knowledge the computer in question just simply suddenly stopped working as it should. I am unable to get the 'default' welcome screen upon start up and am getting the logon box where you type in a username and passworld. I know how to get rid of this, user accounts>enable welcome screen - but it will not solve the problem.

This is just the start of the problems. I get a whole host of errors which popup one after another. This is a summary of the errors which popup:
userinit.exe bad image
hpztsb05.exe bad image
psdiagnostic.exe bad image
vscplay.exe bad image
ituneshelper.exe bad image
zlclient.exe bad image
wcescomm.exe bad image

Once these errors pop up the desktop picture appears, but no icons/start menu are available. I have to ctrl/alt/delete then run a command (such as control or winword) then I get the icons and the start menu. However most programs cannot run at all, for example I cannot run Spybot, I get the error: 'SpybotSD.exe - bad image' 'The Application of DLL C:\WINDOWS\system32\winspool.drv is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette'.

Basically I cannot tell if this is a spyware/adware/virus/HDD failure problem. I can however run AVG antivirus, and it finds no problems.

I've tried runnin HijackThis but again the program will not run. It shows the same error as when I try to run Spybot.

Before I start, I must warn you that all this was typed on my iPod touch. grammar and spelling may not be that good .

My booting errors first occures after i tried to clone my hard drive numerous times. First I tried with windows tools and apps but to avail. Then I tried with Linux and no success, not even dd would work. It always had a I/o error, but always copied about 50% of it .

After the dd failed I tried booting win 7. The boot manager gave me 2 options. Win 7 ult and win 7 ult (recovered) win 7 ult never booted, because it was the half cloned HD. The other loaded but was bugged, had to manually run explored etc.

I then formatted my newer HD and tried booting from the old HD. I must of fine something down the line, because I have all the data etc on the drive,
but there is no boot loader
diskpart cannot see the volume
bcdedit doesn't work
bootrec /fixbbot says element caanot be found
bootrec /scanos cannot find installations

Basically anything I do doesn't work. Can I have some help? How could I get win 7 back?!

Win XP (sp2)

Last night I decided to perform maintenance on my computer, which included:

-uninstall any programs that were outdated or that I did not use (via Revo Uninstaller)

-update/upgrade existing programs

-clean temp folders and junk files (CCleaner)

-remove leftover registry entries (Ace Utilities)

-perform a defragmentation (PerfectDisk)

In a nutshell, I encountered problems uninstalling a few programs including Kaspersky Internet Security, XP Smoker PRO and Java RE. During the uninstall process of one of those programs....it messed up my Windows XP.

When I try to access the search window....it's blank and only the yellow dog in the corner is visible. When I open up IE7.....I can only access yahoo.com and a few other sites. Any other site I try going to doesn't load (white screen). When I go into the "My Documents" folders, there's a moving flashlight for a couple of minutes before it opens up the folder.

Also when I reboot, I'm getting a blue or black (color changes) background screen with a large box in the middle with weird characters on the left corner and an "OK" button towards the bottom. The ONLY way to get back into my desktop is to click on "OK."

I ran "CHKDSK /R" twice and it did not fix this issue.

I do not have my Windows XP CD to repair or reinstall the OS and I need to find an alternate method of resolving this issue. Any help/insight is greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

Hello all,
I'm new to this forum and got the one due to need of formating the hard drive for following reason.
I was going to going to reinstall windows 7 professional x64 version of windows in my laptop but during installation I got structed at the point where the earlier partitions are to be deleted and new ones are to be made(I got the option from custom install) to give the path for new C:// drive and others.
Here is the basic of problem, the installation was taking very long time to delete my earlier partitions(nearly 30 mins.). So I derectly pressed the power button and shut down (while the deletion of earlier C:// drive was going on) my laptop eject the DVD on next boot, but now nothing was appearing after booting.
So I again tried to do the same installation but this time the installation was stucked at the windows icon ('Starting Windows' Icon).
Please help with this issue!

Hey, I have had this problem for the past week, I have tried many different methods but cant figure it out.

It started off with me disabling my antivirus for about 3 - 4 minutes. In that time something had infected my PC, it displayed a fake BSOD with a fake windows "helpline" phone number on it. I knew right away it was fake because I know microsoft supports phone number, and it was running as a process. (Unknown process name.)

I started my PC in safe mode and used AVG to scan and clean my PC. I booted it back into Normal mode afterwards and it worked fine. (Before I would start it and about 2 minutes in the fake BSOD showed and restarted my PC).

My PC was working fine for about 4-6 hours, then I went on YouTube and watched some videos, and went on Stackoverflow.com to answer some questions on there.

When doing so, my PC did the same thing it had been doing. This time I had AVG & MSE enabled, so I was very confused. I started back in safe mode, re-did the scan and nothing was found this time.
Now, I started my PC back up normally, same thing.

Being stupid, I opened my PC and put a hard drive with win vista x86 in it. Obviously, that wouldn't work because it attempts to load Win7 drivers, not the win vista ones, so it showed the real BSOD. At that point I thought I had broke my hard drive slots. I put my Win7 hard drive back in, and now it will not start, It says windows failed to start. So I launched startup repair and now problems were found. Restarted... Read more

Hello all,

First-of-all, thank you for reading this thread. Any help you can offer is greatly appreciated.

I have a Dell Dimension 8400 (circa 2006?). Not used very often. New 1 TB hdd placed approximately 1 year ago. Since it was still running slow (about 6 months ago) with occasional BSOD, took it in to local "tech guy" who added some RAM, "cleaned things up", and replaced XP Home with XP Pro.

Since then, it has been working OK (minor problems not worth mentioning here). It is only used for Quicken, Rhapsody, and very light internet surfing. NO questionable websites. Currently use ZoneAlarm firewall and AVAST antivirus.

PROBLEM showed up last night. First I got BSOD (Did not record the message). On attempting to reboot, the following message comes up:


The instruction at "0x77c47e9f" referenced memory at "0x00000000". The memory could not be "read".

Click on OK to terminate the program
Click on CANCEL to debug the program


Regardless of which option I choose, the computer offers the same message again once or twice. After 8 to 10 minutes, my normal desktop appears. Unfortunately, there is no START or Taskbar. Whether I do anything or not, after 2 to 3 minutes, I get the following message:

Hi there,

I am currently trying to troubleshoot my computer as it has recently stopped booting up. I have had a previous thread about this issue here. However, I am moving my thread to the BSOD section after suggestion by 'essenbe'

Here is a summary of my issue:
For months now, I have been having intermittent issues with BSODs, 'hardware errors' (in the reliability monitor) and freezes on multiple installs of Windows.A few weeks ago, I installed a new graphics card (Asus GT610 2GB) which replaced integrated graphics. Also, at the same time as installing the graphics card I 'refreshed' Windows 10 and installed all of the latest drivers.All was running fine for a few days, until the computer simply refused to boot one day. When ever I try to boot now, the Windows startup screen simply hangs and never does anything. Safe mode simply boots to a black screen.I have tried to run linux live cds and Windows disks. All of which often fail to boot (they just hang on the startup screen).

So far, I have tested my ram with memtest86+ (8 passes) and hard drive with seatools (long test passed).

I attach the last version I could get of the BSOD logs (the folder is slightly outdated as obviously I cannot get any logs now!)

I'm looking for some help please. My computer was giving me lots of BSOD, slowed/stuck bootups and errors originated from \Device\Harddisk0\D in my event viewer. My hard drive failed generic long tests and had bad clusters so I got a new hard drive, installed it with XP and it was fine for a week. Then my computer would boot to a blank screen and wouldn't boot in safe mode.

So I yesterday reinstalled XP again and now it's staying on the XP loading screen but never actually loading. Safe boot got stuck as soon as I went into event viewer. I managed to get it to start up normally just now, and I am seeing these errors in event viewer:

-Error, event ID 11: The driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk0\D.
-Warning event ID 51: An error was detected on device \Device\Harddisk0\D during a paging operation.
-Error, event ID 7001: The DHCP Client service depends on the NetBios over Tcpip service which failed to start because of the following error: A device attached to the system is not functioning.
(That same error repeats, only instead of DHiverCP/NetBios, it's DNS Client/TCP IP Protocol Driver and IPSEC.)
-Error, event 7026: The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: Aavmker4, AFD, AmdK8, AsIO, asuskbnt, aswSP, aswTdi, Fips, IPSec, MRxSmb, NetBIOS, NetBT, ohci1394, RasAcd, Rdbss, Tcpip.

Answer:New HDD/XP gets stuck booting, lots of event viewer errors

It appears that you have a nice system, if you can get it back to normal.
We have to suspect other hardware, since two hard drives have similar symptoms... but you may have copied evil stuff from the one drive to the other. How did you transfer files? Or an infestation.
What did you use to scan your system for virus and spyware infestations?
Have you carefully checked your cables... or even tried replacing them temporarily?
Examine all sockets for dirt and debris, and clean your system thoroughly but carefully.
You may need to rule out some things that do not seem part of the problem... as it may be a long and slow process to figger out where the problem is... I would start, if the drive will work well enough, by running MemTest86 for four hours or seven passes, which ever is longer... or removing half the memory to test the other half, then switching.
We always suspect the cables first. They can fail and look good.
Any defective hardware part can cause problems elsewhere if the conditions are right... so I would begin by making a check list, then trading out everything on the list... video card, modem even if not used, ethernet connection or software, .
I would also try another drive and cable... any other drive, even using the first drive, fully reformatted and reinstalled with Windows and basic software....
Windows will not normally cause these of problem, but if you have scratches or smudges that would make it difficult to read, then you could theoretically introduce ... Read more

My knowledge with computers is very limited so I will try to explain everything best I can retaining to my problem. My computer's OS is Windows Vista Home Premium 32-bit. I've only had the computer for about a year and a half and I've had reoccurring issues with stop error codes. Whenever I go to reformat my computer, or repair it the computer only stays at a usable state for maybe a month, if that. If any other information is needed just let me know, I am not all that sure of what all I should be supplying.

Just recently my computer started getting more stop error codes and I cannot understand why. Rarely ever do I download or install anything. Right now every time I try booting up my computer the same message comes up without a booting disk in the CD drive "DISK BOOT FAILURE,INSERT SYSTEM DISK AND PRESS ENTER. I've tried going into my BIOS and changing certain things in hopes that it would be rid of this problem.

I've been trying to boot with two disk, the operating system disc, which was given with the computer, and the System Recovery Disc. I had tried calling E-Machines for help with this and I've called them countless times and no matter what I still end up with the same problem, the annoying stop error codes. Each time I try running both disk the command in repairing or any command on the disc what so ever is terminated because the memory cannot be read.

Hi there,

I am currently trying to troubleshoot my computer as it has recently stopped booting up. I have had a previous thread about this issue here. However, I am moving my thread to the BSOD section after suggestion by 'essenbe'

Here is a summary of my issue:
For months now, I have been having intermittent issues with BSODs, 'hardware errors' (in the reliability monitor) and freezes on multiple installs of Windows.A few weeks ago, I installed a new graphics card (Asus GT610 2GB) which replaced integrated graphics. Also, at the same time as installing the graphics card I 'refreshed' Windows 10 and installed all of the latest drivers.All was running fine for a few days, until the computer simply refused to boot one day. When ever I try to boot now, the Windows startup screen simply hangs and never does anything. Safe mode simply boots to a black screen.I have tried to run linux live cds and Windows disks. All of which often fail to boot (they just hang on the startup screen).

So far, I have tested my ram with memtest86+ (8 passes) and hard drive with seatools (long test passed).

I attach the last version I could get of the BSOD logs (the folder is slightly outdated as obviously I cannot get any logs now!)

Thank you in advance for your help!

Dear members of the TechSupport Forums,

I have been trying to install Windows 7, one of the earliest versions on dvd, for quite some time now, but it does not work.

It installs perfectly, showing me the background and it immediately starts downloading updates. So far, I have no problems, and I can do anything with it what I want.

The problem is when it shuts down. No matter what I do (stopped the updates, didn't install anything), after rebooting, it will not work. It will either try to run a disk check (CHKDSK?), which will fail at 10% for reasons I cannot see, or it will try to run start-up repair, which will also fail indefinitely.

It has worked perfectly with Windows XP and Windows 7 before, so I honestly do not know what is wrong with it. Any help would be appreciated.

And do excuse me if this problem was discussed before. I've read up through the forums but I found nothing similar to my predicament.

Here's the story. I took a client's HDD, which could not install Win7 due to lack of CD drive, and tried to install Win 7 using my home PC. At first, I tried to install but the installation disk said it couldn't locate the correct directory. I then unplugged my two personal harddrives whilst keeping the blank one in while the computer was still on. It wasn't until I restarted my PC that I was able to install. But at the set up your PC stage (name your PC, set password, etc) I turned the computer off, hoping to continue the process on the actual PC that I was going to keep it in so my client could customize it. After plugging my two personal HDD's back in, which were working fine just 15 minutes prior to this, I discovered that neither of them could boot. They just hung in the Win7 loading page. On safe mode, they would get stuck on classpnp.sys. Now, my computer just says that disk cannot be read, and that I should press CTRL+ALT+DEL to restart.

What should I do?

I know that:
My RAM is okay.
My HDD's data is still intact.
My HDD's are NOT broken.
CPU is not overheating.

Answer:Odd win 7 installation errors?

If you install Win7 in other hardware you must SysPrep the HD or it's image before moving it back to the target computer, so that it starts up like new with no driver conflicts, SID/HID or Activation. Only rarely will it start up on its own, usually hanging at the Startup animation when drivers load.

You would not need a CD drive in the target computer as Win7 is on a DVD which are easy enough to borrow or cheap enough to buy. Or you can write the ISO to a flash stick using Universal USB Installer with Win7 in the dropdown menu, boot on one-time BIOS Boot Menu key under USB, Removable or HD's.

Does your system use the Nforce 4 chipset? If so I've read about issues with the Maxtor drives and those chipsets, (http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=8171). Also if you do have the nforce 4 chipset, Maxtor has released a firmware update, and if I remember correctly (this was as of June 06(Had a customer with the exact same issue)) you had to call their techs with a drive serial number to verify your drive was one of the affected, and then they would e-mail the firmware update. I hope this helps

I can select other drives to boot from if I boot up into the default drive and select "Change PC Settings" but that is very slow and allows mistakes if one is tired.

I think the reason for the problem is because I installed all the drives on their own separately (took out the other drives) and they are now all installed properly except for this problem.

I only need to boot from the default drive when I need to do something with that particular drive or to boot from "Windows 7 Ultimate" I tried to fix the problem with Drive Freshen (I think its called) but that didn't work.

Is there a way to fix this problem and have the screen that offers to allow booting from another drive added to the default drive, without doing a total re-install please ?

On a multi boot system it is the first screen to display before booting the OS, and shows all the installed Drives in boxes with their names (labels) on, so that you can choose which Drive to boot from..

Many thanks for any help

Answer:After installation NO screen to allow booting from another

You could fix that with Download EasyBCD 2.2 you can ad any OS to the boot menu without resorting to BIOS changes.

Hello All,

I installed Win 7 x64 on my PC which was running Win XP SP3 x64 without any problems.

I formatted my drive and did a clean install. After install my sytem wont boot and it says
File: ntoskrnl.exe
Status: 0xc0000428
Info: Windoes cannot verify the digital signature for this file.
My BIOS is the latest for my Gigabyte G31M-ES2C and I formatted the complete hard drive before install using GParted. I have cleared my CMOS memory and I tried reinstalling and repairing the system too. I checked my TwinMos 2GB RAM for errors and it is fine too. I have two hard drives both SATA WDC caviar blue 250gb (master) and 160gb(slave).

I still cant figure of why this happens. Does someone has a method to solve it and get my system running again.

Answer:Fresh Installation not Booting

Hi Insoft and welcome to SF!
The error code indicates that the issue is related to file corruption. Just to add to what you have dont to fix this, most likely a Repair installation would take care of this problem.
You can also try to press F8 during the boot process and then select the option "Disable Driver Signature Enforcement"
Otherwise you should follow the repair steps to do a restore or to copy the file from a known good location.
If there are bad sectors on your hard disk, then running CHKDSK /R from the command prompt would also fix this as it did for you.
Let us know the results.
Hope that helps.

So I have a laptop that used to have a 2TB HDD inside. I recently have changed the HDD for an SSD. I have a flash drive with windows 10 on it and I am trying to get the computer to boot from the flash drive. However it is stuck on a screen that says " No bootable device " and I cannot open the bios, and pressing any key does nothing. What do I do? My laptop is an Acer aspire v17 Nitro. I am also 99.9% positive I connected the SSD correctly.

Answer:Laptop not booting after SSD installation

I used the Windows USB/DVD tool from Microsoft when I helped a friend build a PC. I used it to install Windows 10 on his machine. The flash drive has been unaltered since then, I checked to make sure it still had the files on it.

Yesterday , randomly , when I turned on the computer I saw nothing but a black screen. It wasn't the black screen of death , looked like a windows black screen but it just wasn't displaying anything. Its almost like windows is operating normally in the background , its just not showing me. When I put the disk in it comes up occasionally and works fine , but when I shut down and turn it back on its back to the same ole thing.

I have windows 7 home premium , 32-bit. I read somewhere that I may need to check the boot order , but I have no idea how to do any of this.

Any Ideas ?

Thank you in advance.

Answer:Why is 7 only booting when I have the installation disk in ?

Follow the tutorial Startup Repair minutely.

Run it at least three times, with restarts after every single run, and see if it boots normally or not. Post back with results.

Ok I'm totally new to this Linux deal, but I have to use it for my CIS courses at University. So I figured I would install it on a separate IDE hard drive. However, my windows hard drive happens to be SATA, which Red Hat does not support. So when I'm installing Red Hat it gives me the option to add an another operating system so it will be able to dual boot. But the problem is that my windows partition is on my SATA HD. So is there any way I will be able to Dual boot my system? Any help would be great!

Thanks

I have an old install of XP left on an additional harddrive after I got a bigger drive and reinstalled... but now all of a sudden that's the only one it'll boot to! I had some other issues (caused, believe it or not by AVG).. and in the process of that I ran a repair installation over my new and proper XP.. with all the other drives disconnected.. and it was working fine, but as soon as I hook up the other drives... BLAM it's booting into the old install again. Now in disk management it's listed as the Boot Drive and the one that SHOULD be System is listed as active... i read something about making it active to make it boot from that drive... but it's not working.. what is the easiest way to modify where it boots from? I have been trying through the recovery console with fixmbr but that didn't work... i feel like there should be something more straightforward though!

note: the drive with windows that i want to boot off of IS listed first in the hdisk boot priority in the bios...

Be sure your "Proper" boot drive is the one listed first in The BIOS boot order. The nomenclature can be confusing. For that matter, just switch the boot order and see what happens.

Answer:BSOD every 30 secs after booting 2 errors code ; 0x50,0x51

You are running a Dell Product ID (PID) on an ASUS board
This makes your installation counterfeit.
Troubleshooting a counterfeit installation is useless as it is not known what has been modified to your system.
A counterfeit installation contains heavily modified code which causes the system to behave in unexpected ways.
For this reason, analyzing counterfeit systems is unreliable and most analysts won't try it.

Code:
OS Configuration: Standalone Workstation
OS Build Type: Multiprocessor Free
Registered Owner: Aldo
Registered Organization:
Product ID: 00426-OEM-8992662-00400
Original Install Date: 8/13/2013, 3:09:15 PM
System Boot Time: 7/3/2016, 3:01:07 AM
System Manufacturer: ASUS
I recommend to install a genuine copy of Windows.
If, after you have installed a genuine copy of Windows, you still get BSOD's we'll be happy to assist you.

Hello, recently, I have had to reinstall Windows XP back onto my computer, though, in the process of trying to do so, I encountered this problem: When I am 35% into the "Copying installation files" part of the XP setup, it stops at a .cpl file that is supposedly missing or something... It also has an error message that pops up at the beginning of the installation, right after I finish entering the XP Serial number, it says that some files are corrupt and asks me if I want to view a report of the problems...

I have tried installing it different ways, as many as I could think, but have been unsuccessful in doing so. I am forced to think I need to somehow find these files online or something, but am unsure how to go about doing so. am I right, or can someone help me out with this problem?

Thanks.

PS: I had to reinstall windows ME to do this hence why it says my OS is ME right now.

Answer:Windows XP Installation Errors

Format the machine with kill disk prior to installation of xp. Free
download do a google search. Xp does a poor job of formatting.
You will have to change bootup devices in bios a couple of times in
order to complete this.

I have a windows 7 computer and somehow I was able to install HP software on it when I had my printer directly connected via USB. I could print and scan with no problems. Recently, I added a Linux computer and decided to connect everything via Ethernet cables to a router.

The problem I'm having now is that the windows computer will not initiate scans on the printer, just print jobs. I checked out the IP address and was able to initiate scans from there but, the software is having communications issues.

I decided to uninstall the software and try to reinstall an updated version but now I keep getting installation errors stating, "The system cannot find the specified file." I wanted to make sure that all instances of HP were wiped from my hard drive but I find some registry keys still hanging around..."HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/HP".

Would it be alright to manually delete these references in my registry? (after backup of course) and am I in the right end of the ballpark on this issue?
 

Answer:HP Software Installation Errors

If the printer is connected to the Linux machine, yes you can have problems with the printer & HPLp driver in linux.

If the printer is not a Network capable printer via Ethernet or Wifi, or is a older model, yes you can have problems on the Linux machine doing network scanning. We have a Officejet 4500 G510n-z wifi printer and never had problems doing network scanning with Ubuntu or Windows 7.

Really need more info as in, what version of Linux are you using, how is the printer connected, what model of printer also.
