BSOD - Computer runs in safe mode, not regular mode

Question: BSOD - Computer runs in safe mode, not regular mode

Hi, I'm having some problems fixing my bleeping computer (Windows 10 desktop computer, to be specific) and could use some assistance.
 
On Friday 15 December 2017, my computer ran fine when I woke up and used it for a few minutes in the morning. Before that date, I had very few problems with my computer running; the biggest issue was some freezing occurring while playing games demanding on processing power such as Civilization 5. However, I don't believe that is related to my current issue, as I last played it on Sunday 26 November 2017, and I had no issues with it on that day.
 
When I returned home later that day (15 December), I found my computer stuck on a blue screen. I'm not sure quite what happened, as my computer was not used during the day at all. I restarted several times, but I was not able to even make it to the user login screen before getting a blue screen. I've received error code 0xc0000142 for every blue screen.
 
Startup repair did nothing to resolve the situation. I am still able to run my computer in safe mode with networking and that's how I'm writing this post. For the past two weeks, I've been using safe mode to use my computer. I've looked online for solutions, but haven't gotten much. I've had some problems in safe mode with random freezes, but at least the computer runs most of the time, although with limited functionality.
 
My research led me to trying Windows + R and opening msconfig.exe and disabling all services that were not Microsoft services, then clicking Apply and OK. This had no effect as far as I can tell, because when I restarted the computer, the same problem occurred as mentioned in paragraph 3 (I could not start it without a blue screen).
 
I don't believe system restore is an option, as I have no saved restore points, although I'm not too knowledgeable about this. Refreshing/restarting windows would also be troublesome as I have all my files and programs on this computer without a backup (I will back them up eventually) and no means of transporting files back if I rebooted Windows (i.e. I have no external hard drive I could keep the files on). 
 
I've checked programs that were recently installed; the most recent program I saw was installed on Thursday 14 December 2017 (an update to Microsoft Office 2013), which was the day before I started having this issue.
 
I am looking for a solution to this problem. I'm hoping it is a software issue I can fix through uninstalling or something along those lines, as if it's a hardware issue, I cannot afford to purchase new parts for my computer. If anything can be done about this, let me know! Also tell me if I need to provide additional information, and I'll be glad to.
 
Thanks and happy new year!

Preferred Solution: BSOD - Computer runs in safe mode, not regular mode

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.)

Answer: BSOD - Computer runs in safe mode, not regular mode

If you work OK in Safe Mode - but not in normal mode, it's most likely a software problem.
Hardware problems are possible, but nowhere near as likely as a software problem.
 
First thing I'd suggest is trying a clean boot.  It's similar to Safe Mode - but works in normal mode by disabling stuff.
It's also similar to disabling the services - but you'll disable more when doing a clean boot.
If a clean boot fixes the problem - then the problem was caused by one (or more) of the things you disabled for the clean boot.
Then it's just a matter of re-enabling things one at a time until you find the problem.
Perform a Clean Boot:  http://www.thewindowsclub.com/what-is-clean-boot-state-in-windows
If that stops the problem, then re-enable things a few at a time until you figure out what's causing it.
Then uninstall the problem program (from Start...Settings...Apps...Apps & Features - if you don't find it there, check the right sidebar for Programs and Features and see if you can remove it from there).
 
Backup your stuff now.  There's no telling exactly what the problem is - so a backup is the best way to be prepared in case the system dies on you suddenly.
 
If this doesn't work, then post back and we'll ask for some reports to try and figure out what's going on.
Good luck!

I recently re-formatted my Sony VAIO since it was starting to run super slow. Now that I re-installed Windows 7 on it through recovery disks, it worked fined for about a day but then the problem came back. The computer is slow at bootup and runs super slow while freezing so many times. I am running it on safe mode right now and its working fine.

I ran hardware diagnostics and everything is fine (Memory, Hard Disk etc.)

I installed Norton Antivirus and Windows Live Messenger after the re-install.

Please help me.

I started getting BSOD's right after login after boot up. I get a number of different ones and occasionally some repeat. When I come up in safe mode (with and without networking) I can function as long as I don't do too much. I've drive tested my system drive and I also did a memory test. I've also not made any changes recently. If I do too much it will BSOD though. When I start copying files off my system drive to my storage array, I BSOD if I'm doing more than a couple gigs.

I can't seem to get a consistent BSOD. I've listed most of the ones below, I haven't caugh them all.


Any help is appreciated and thank you in advance.Memory Management with Stop 1a
Cache Manager with 0x34 I think
Stop with 0X24

Answer:Different BSOD's upon login in regular mode and in safe mode

Lots of crashes but they are not showing any probable cause.

Do these, as a test:

Free up the startup.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Stop nVidia automatic driver update:
Open nVidia control center.
Help> Updates. It will open the nVidia updates window.
Click the preferences tab.
Uncheck "Automatically check for updates"
Apply > OK.
If the crashes continue to occur after doing these, enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip


If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode.... Read more

Hello,
I have this problem with my laptop - sometimes I cannot login - after choosing the user the screen freezes or after logging in it works only for a few minutes in regular mode (I can do things over those minutes like open firefox, but I cannot open folders, sometimes I can open the task manager or even some programs) but then it freezes and I have to shutdown the computer manually by pushing the power button. When I tried pushing crtl+alt+del I got a message "The logon process was unable to display security and logon options when ctrl+alt+delete was pressed. If the operatin system does not respond, press esc or restart the computer by using the power switch". I don't know if this helps, but I try to add as much as I can. Sorry it it's not relevant - my knowledge about computers and IT is minimal.
The computer runs fine in safe mode.
So I tried system restore to a week before when the computer was still fine and it didn't work. So I reinstalled a graphics driver (Intel HD Graphics Driver) as I found on the internet that similar problems got fixed by reinstalled videocard drivers. And it worked, everything started to run smoothly again in the regular mode. As normally I allowed windows updates and after restarting my computer, the problems came back.
I assumed that the problem was the updates so I uninstalled most of them (KB2930275; KB2923961; KB2925418; KB2929755; KB2929733 and KB2918077) but the problem was still there and I was unable to unin... Read more

I'm not sure what causes my BSOD. The errors range from BAD_POOL_HEADER to ntfs.sys to drivers-something.

I am currently running Safe Mode with Networking and things seem stable.

I ran Anti-malware (nothing found), VIPRErescuescanner (nothing), fakereanfix (didn't help), ComboFix (probably made things worse).

Are my drivers up to date? No, probably not, but at this point, I'm scared to change anything else.
Is my windows 7 up to date? No updates installed since Jan 2012, I'm too scared to update anything lest I cause more BSODs.

Honestly, I really don't know where to begin. Every time I try to run my computer in normal mode it restarts and gives me options to run in different safe modes or try normal mode again. My computer runs perfectly fine in safe mode. I haven't added any new programs. It's been this way for some time. I'm currently running sfc /scannow to see if this helps, which I seen it helped on a similar forum on bleepingcomputer. If anyone has anything else to contribute, please feel free.

The BSOD states:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
Tech Info:
STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF789E524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I had a number of infections that spybot and malwaybytes found and fixed, McAfee didn't find anything. I kept looking around for some of my same issues that still persisted, all files hidden, administrator tools empty, cannot run a system restore. I came across your forum that referenced one of my issues and I downloaded combofix, ran it and while it was running the BSOD came up. I tried to reboot in safe mode but still receive BSOD.

At this moment I am runnig ckdsk /r from the recovery console.

I orginally posted in malware forum but I think I need to resolve the boot issue before I can address any malware issues, is that correct?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

OS:XP
 

Answer:BSOD cannot boot in regular or safe mode

If the chkdsk doesn't help which it might.

7B is often associated with SATA drivers. If you can find your SATA configuration in BIOS, it might be worth a try to set it to ATA or IDE emulation.

If you give the model of computer or motherboard we might be able to figure out where the setting would be in BIOS. Usually it is under Drives or something like that.

I'm not sure that the setting switch on a running OS will help but it couldn't hurt to give it a quick try.

Hello,

I've got a peculiar and suspicious problem, but an expert in the Malware Removal forum found no infection on my computer (see the thread here.)

One of the symptoms I'm seeing is that the Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware (MBAM) installer will not complete without errors in Windows XP Pro SP3 after a normal boot. After acknowledging the errors during the install routine (which are always the same, a screenshot is attached to this thread), the installer seems to finish. However, the second symptom is that MBAM then will not run due to the same pop-up error message. It's a Visual C++ Runtime Library error that says, "This application has requested the Runtime to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information." Please see the screenshot in this Malware Removal thread.

I know that normally, some malware will disallow running the normal filename for MBAM, so the first thing I tried was renaming the file to something else, including using different file extension such as .com, .bat, .scr, and .pif. None of these renaming attempts worked. This is where I started to observe really strange behavior. After uninstalling my first MBAM install attempt, I found that I could install MBAM when booted to Safe Mode (after changing the registry to allow this and starting the installer service in Safe Mode). After the install I could also run MBAM in safe mode. I then rebooted to normal mode, and MBAM sti... Read more

This is baffling me to no end. I can boot up fine in safe mode, and with networking. But I still manage to get a BSOD not too long into the session. I managed to capture a video of it and in the Technical information of the blue screen it said "STOP: 0X0000007E (0XC0000005, 0X81CB6169, 0X807F09BC, 0X807F05AO)", not sure if that's of any use... I've also uploaded the minidump file if you can use that information.

The other issue is the OS doesn't load at all in normal boot. It'll show the windows logo animation screen, then go black, and do nothing until I hit the power button. These problems started arising not long after I installed W7 onto the computer (acer aspire, amd athlon 3800+ CPU, installed a dedicated nvidia 9700 gt card overtop of the dedicated one (the problem was there still before that), 1.5 gig of ram).

Answer:BSOD on Safe mode - No load on Regular boot

10 memory dumps - 6 different STOP errors, 5 different drivers blamed

I would suspect that there's a compatibility or a hardware issue here.
The most likely problem is with your wireless USB adapter as the driver is dated from 2006.

Please uninstall the software for your wireless USB adapter and see if that stops the BSOD's. If so, then either download the latest, Win7 driver for the USB adapter or (if there isn't a Win7 driver) purchase a new adapter. I'd suggest a PCI/PCIe adapter that plugs into your motherboard (rather than a USB adapter) as they have less problems than the USB one's.

Just a general question:1. When doing a routine scan for viruses and malware, etc. (and just generally speaking), is it better to scan in safe mode or regular mode? 2. If you scan in safe mode, is there anything that wouldn't show up (that you could potentially miss) that *would* show up in regular mode? 3. Or is safe mode just better all around, and everything is covered (plus more) that you'd find with scanning in regular mode?(I'm referring to scanning with AVG A/V, AVG Anti-Spyware, SpyBot (old version), and Ad-Aware SE.)Thanks!

Answer:Better To Scan In Safe Mode Or Regular Mode For Virus/malware?

Safe Mode is a troubleshooting mode designed to start Windows with minimal drivers and running processes to diagnose problems with your computer. This means some of the programs that normally run when Windows starts will not run.The Windows operating system protects files when they are being accessed by an application or a program. Malware writers create programs that can insert itself and hide in these protected areas when the files are being used. Using "Safe Mode" reduces the number of modules requesting files to only the essentials to make your computer functional. This in turn reduces the number of hiding places for malware, making it easier to find and delete the offending files. Using your anti-virus and anti-malware tools, in "Safe Mode" also speeds up the scanning process. Read "Beginners Guides: Windows XP Safe Mode Explained" and "What is 'Safe Mode' used for and why?"

Hi all!

Today I started up my computer (an XP machine running SP3) and after it went through the BIOS, it showed the Windows startup screen (the Windows logo with the blue progress bar), but when that was done, it went to a black screen and won't do anything else.

I restarted and tried a few different things; Start Windows Normally, and Last Known Good Configuration both got me the same black screen.

CheckDisk ran, and it made it to the end, but froze when it said "please wait while your computer reboots" ... after waiting more than 10 minutes, i hit reset and tried to reboot it myself. It did the same Bios-Windows-blackscreen thing as before.

I also tried booting into Safe Mode, which DID work, and when I got in there I tried to do a System Restore (two, actually... for two previous dates) but both did nothing to resolve the problem. I tried simply copying my "important" files to my external HD (which it sees), but it won't copy in Safe Mode

When loading in Safe Mode, the driver list pauses and says "press esc to cancel loading of SPTD.sys" but I've tried it both ways and it doesn't make a difference that I can see.

I tried using my XP CD to boot from, which takes me into the Recovery Console, and I chose to hit "R" to repair, but when it asks me what drive I want to login to (which is C:) I don't really know what to do from there. I haven't booted from a CD before, so I assumed it would run a "Repair Wizard&... Read more

Hey guys, I have been reading around and posted a bit on reddit and still no solution, although it seems like it should be simple.

2 weeks ago tuesday my work laptop had regularly scheduled windows updates that everyone loves to see right before they shut down. the next day it began with the circle of death after 1-3 min after start up, sometimes upwards of 30 minutes of functionality. but eventually the circle of death comes and i can't click on anything, however the mouse will still function.

i have gone back to every restore point possible and still get the freezing. i have updated/ran MSE in safe mode as well.

It's not a huge deal if I have to reformat, I just really feel like the solution shouldn't be that hard.

Anyways, thanks for your time.

Yesterday I started getting the "Congratulations, you won" audio as well as some other adverts randomly playing without any popups or browsers open. I tried a series of malware removals (Malwarebytes, spybot seek and destroy) I got hijackthis and tried to look for out of place items by matching with others posts. Anyways, did all that and then then ran an antivirus scan (AVG free) and went to bed. When I woke up I was at the Start windows normal/safe/safe with network/last known screen so I went to last known. When I did that, it never booted just goes to the windows logo and then blue screens saying memory issue or update BIOS. Tried to boot in safe mode, same story. When I run the diagnostics test it says "Error loading operating system." All remedies online so far require getting online (computer wont start) and downloading BIOS updatesHELP!!!

Hi, figsahaas42 It seems that the issue is related to the Master Boot Record due to the Whistler Trojan. You will need the Windows VISTA Installation DVD to fix this. Please be advise that there is always a slight possibility that you may lose your Data repairing the Master Boot Record.You must access the Vista Recovery Environment throughout the Vista installation DVD.At the Install Windows screen, select Repair your computer. Then the command prompt.Type the following command at the prompt, then hit Enter.bootrec /fixmbrOnce finished, type Exit and press Enter. Restart the computer in Normal Mode.

My computer is a HP Probook 4710s running windows xp professional w/ SP3
When I started it up it was very slow, did not make the chiming welcome sound and none of the icons or taskbar came up.
I hit ctrl+alt+del and explorer.exe was there but clearly not doing anything.  Only 21 total processes were running.  I rebooted in safemode and all of my icons appeared.  I tried a system restore but it did not work.  I can reboot in safemode with networking but the following error message appears.  "Runtime Error!  Program  c:\ProgramFiles\Hewlett-Packard\IAM\Bin\AsGHost.exe    This application has requested to terminate in an unusual way. Please contact the applications support team for further infomation."  I had contacted microsoft's tech support who thought the problem might be a corrupted user profile, so we attempted to create a new one and copy the files over to it, but the copy never worked and would fail part way through saying, "cannot access files" and then stop.  So those profiles were deleted and now I'm back to not being able to boot up with just the plain old default ADMIN user.  I don't want to shut down my computer since I'm worried if I do, it will stop booting up in safe mode too.  It's done that before, it cycles through all the files and then hangs up for about 3 minutes and automatically reboots.  Any suggestions?

I have an HP desktop, and I was on my computer. My foot accidentally hit the power strip off (which everything was plugged in to).
For some reason, every time I try to turn the computer back on, the blue HP screen comes up, then the black screen which asks me if I wanted to open in (safe mode, safe w/ networking, safe w/ command prompt, or open windows normal)
Whenever I click safe mode or open normal, it takes me to the Windows XP loading...

It loads, however when it's done loading, the computer RESTARTS! and does the same things again...
Perhaps it was a disk failure? What can I do to fix this?

My mother and I share a network, and both own Compaq Presarios from the dark ages . She is running XP and I'm running 98. I caught a virus (pretty sure it's Virtumonde) and I'm taking steps to deal with it. This is not about my problem... unless it's her problem, too.

She recently bought a laptop (which runs Vista) and is networked into the same system. For this laptop, she purchased ESET NOD32 Antivirus4. When she heard about my problem, she thought that it might be a good idea to install this same program to her PC before I reattached to the network to fix my problem. So we did that. Unfortunately, we didn't heed the extremely mild warning that there "may be conflicts" with the McAfee already on her system, and neglected to uninstall it.

As soon as I was finished with the uninstall, I attempted to enter the Add/Remove Programs menu to remove McAfee. It told me to wait while it populated the list, and ten minutes later, I gave up. The computer had frozen, so I did a hard shut down... and have not been able to do anything since!

We can restart it, sure, but it freezes somewhere between the time it launches McAfee and the time it launches Eset - any attempts to do anything either fail or cause the freeze. We of course tried booting in safe mode, but cannot get the options screen (we tried the tapping and holding methods for both F8 and F5).

Incidentally, her computer's symptoms do not resemble mine in the slightest.

We had a power outage recently and even though the backup kicked in, our MS Outlook 07 (running on XP Pro) will only open in Safe Mode with limited features. When I reboot, I get an error message saying Outlook wasn't closed properly. It will not load at all unless I click on the offer to operate in safe mode. How do I get the system to function normally in regular mode with full features again? I'd appreciate any how-to help anyone can provide. THANKS!
 

Answer:Outlook 07 Safe Mode vs Regular Mode

Reinstall. It has been too badly damaged. Your settings have been preserved as has your mail, in most cases... but it is still wise to use Outlook recovery software (see www.majorgeeks.com and others) before you perform the reinstall... your files in process at the time of the failure are likely lost.

Hello, the computer I am concerned with is running Windows 7 with IE8, Microsoft Security Essentials and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware. I am currently in Safe Mode with Networking without issue.

The owner of the computer says that something happened earlier today while he was online that sounds like some false antivirus popup, but he's unsure. Here are the symptoms in normal mode. Every application, from moving through them to opening and closing them, runs exceptionally slow - one to three minutes to open, at least a minute to open internet pages. I noticed that, when in IE, as the pages are loading the IE page disappears and reappears. I am not very familiar with Windows 7 so I don't know if it is related. The computer seems to be getting slower as the day goes on. CPU usage is very high.

So far, I have disabled many startup items that were unnecessary. I ran CCleaner and cleaned up. MBAM was run in both normal and safe mode, full scans, and found nothing. This is also posted in Viruses and Malware, but I'm unsure where it should live.

If you can help, thanks!! I have to work on the Win7 computer from LogMeIn, and may have to get around in safe mode there.

Answer:Win7 runs extremely slow in normal mode, but nicely in safe mode

I suggest you wait for a response from the malware specialists before looking elsewhere.

Answer:windows runs fine in safe mode but normal mode is broken

There are many situations where Safe mode can work well and the normal mode hangs, it may be a suspect/culprit of a hardware/software.

Try the following possible steps for diagnosis in safe mode

1) Go to Control panel -----> Device Manager ------> then check for warnings or error marks which makes the hardware made trouble thus your OS freezes;/ try to uninstsll then check if still persist.

2) Go to Start Menu ----> Click Run -----> then type msconfig -----> go to services and startups then try to untick any possible problems, assume it should not be from Microsoft. Check if still persist.

This option managed to fix by most users which going to BIOS by tapping del key or f2 key (depends on the manufacturer default key command) then change all settings by default, restart and check if still persist.

I have a HP Pavilion A6352c desktop pc. I have recently installed a clean copy on win 7. I have listed the issue I am having below. I hope you can assist me in getting this system to a stable state.

1. System locks up running in Normal Mode - I will take about 3 minutes before the entire system locks up, I have to do a hard shutdown when this happens. I can start the system in Normal mode, but only if I use the diagnostic startup option in MSConfig. I can enable some services, but I am in the process of trying to figure out which one is making it lockup.

2. The system will run fine under safe mode with networking and such. I have the normal startup option in msconfig enabled in safe mode and no issue except it's in Safe Mode!

I have attached the requested documents/files in the attached zip file. I was unable to get the Perfmon report.

I look forward to your response.

Answer:Systems runs in safe mode - Normal mode locks up

The dumps are all over the map, but they all are having issues in amdk8.sys (the OS's CPU driver). What's really interesting is one of these dumps looks almost exactly the same as the issue that is documented in KB 975530, but that's for Intel CPUs running hyper-v. However, you *are* running into a watchdog timeout on the CPU (it's causing other drivers to crash and confuse analyze, but it's not that code's fault that the CPU stopped processing it's requests). This means you might have a bum core on that CPU when entering/exiting C-states. Try running this:
reg add HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Processor /v Capabilities /t REG_DWORD /d 0x0007e066

Reboot, and see if it still causes problems in regular boot mode. Either way, you probably need to have that CPU looked at as a potential bad part.

I have a Sony VGN-NR220E running XP Home Edition. Has 1gb memory. 160GB hard drive, the video is 256mb.

The problem is that it will only run in Safe Mode. When I boot in normal mode it goes to the XP logon screen and then goes blank. If I push on the case top, bottom, side, it does not matter where I push it comes on but if I let go it goes away. I thought it was a video issue, but if that were the case why does it run in safe mode. I am just at a total blank on this. I have took it apart and reassembled it 4 times and it still does the same thing. I have installed, Vista, Xp, and Windows 7 and it acts the same on all three programs. I have check all driver issues, software issues, now what. Thanks
 

Answer:Sony laptop runs all day in safe mode but not normal mode

It could still be the video, as in safe mode., the system is not running advanced video settings. Safe Mode runs on bare minimums and therefore could explain why the video card is acting up. Something appears to be shorting out on the video. I would check the motherboard for any missing or broken solder.....just to be on the safe side

2. I am unable to install antivirus software from a CD in safe mode. I receive the error stating that the administrator has set a policy preventing the install. I can install other programs that are not security related. This is a personal computer and I'm logged in as the admin so I'm sure this is related to the virus.

Hello,

I have been looking up different threads on Safe Mode issues and can not find one that matches my issue.

I have a Compaq Presario CQ56-115DX, Windows 7.

The problem happened a few months back and I can't seem to fix it. I have even called Tech Support and the problem was only fixed for a few days. I have also tried restoring the computer back to the last update that I have, nothing seems to work.

When I go to start up in normal mode, sometimes it will stay stuck on the 'Welcome' screen. Other times, it will load up (takes a while) then it will allow me to pull up a browser, then it will freeze in about 5 minutes.

I can pull it up in safe mode and use the internet for a while, but it will turn off because it over heats.

If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Any advice would be helpful

Also, If I have to completely wipe my system I am willing to do that. Anything to get it back to normal!

Thanks

Hi every one

I am stuck and now getting no where

A week ago I got a virus called Anti Virus pro

Managed to get rid of this using Malwarebytes and also run registry cleaning tool (Eusing) and between the two of them this seemed to do the trick

Then my pc started crashing when I log on as normal ? it was just outlook and ie8 that would freeze (I have office 2003 and Ie8 installed with xp sp3)

i uninstalled ie8 and went back to ie7 but when I start it up it would just flash up then quit ? if I do this a couple of time it then seems to open

however outlook keeps freezing

so

as an experiment, I created a new user account to try this out and when ever I try and run any office programs (outlook, word, excel etc) the windows installer starts (as if it was a new user install) I would expect this first time but it starts every time I use one of the ms office applications

I went back to my original user log in and all the ms office app (other than outlook and internet explore work and run fine)

So logged on in safe mode (f8 with networking) and everything runs just fine if I log on as my existing user but if I log on in safe mode as my new user account , all the ms office application still try to start windows installer every time ? all then finally load the application except outlook with says install failed

Lately my computer has been acting differently, it turned off on me the first time when I was on the internet and then it became more frequent. A few days ago it wouldn't start so I ran a system restore and it restored to a previous checkpoint and worked good for the rest of the day. Then it started having issues again. Now it keeps restarting and restarting and restarting all on it's own. If I get lucky it will give me the opportunity to go into safe mode and it works fine there. After alot of frustration (and internet searching) I decided to just redo the whole hard drive, I inserted my "system recovery" discs that restore it to how it was when I first bought it and it worked fine (for 30 min) until I tried to install my wireless card then it turned off. In safe mode I uninstalled it and started up normal again, it waited a few minutes and jumped back into the start, restart, restart cycle (it would go a few minutes less each time before restarting until now it won't even get past the windows screen).

I recently installed more RAM (2G) and after reading that that could be an issue tried each one seperatly and reinstalled my old ram (512MB) and that doesn't do anything. BIOS says that my computer is only at about 53 degrees so it's not the fan. I thought I had a something that had to be wrong with software or files so I erased everything and started from scratch, but, as stated, that didn't help (for long).

Answer:my computer only runs in safe mode

Make and model of the PC
it would be worth cleaning out the dust
also maybe reseating the modules - depends on if thsi is a laptop of desktop - just how much you can do

if you can get into safe mode and

goto
control panel>
system>
advanced tab>
startup and recovery - settings>
under the title - system failure
untick - automatically restart

http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;320299

now when it crashes - it willnot restart and the blue screen should stay on the screen
post the info on the screen
it will give the errorcodes and a filename, if caused by a driver.

In normal mode it starts up ok, gets to the desktop, but as soon as I click anything from there everything locks up, if not about 5 minutes later, and not even ctrl alt delete works. I have shut off all the start up programs an services, I have uninstalled and reinstalled my virus scanners, nothing worked, it still freezes every time. i cant do anything on it

Answer:computer only runs in safe mode

Hi,

While in Safe Mode save this program to the desktop: http://live.sysinternals.com/autoruns.exe

Right-click on it -> Select run-as-admin.

Go to Options and make sure Hide Microsoft and Windows Entries is ticked.

Go to the Driver Tab and untick the boxes beside everything that doesn't look to be "Microsoft" that is in that list.

Then re-boot into normal mode.

Some things will not work as they should, but if it does get into normal mode without freezing then we have made some progress.

The next step is to use the same program to re-enable some of the entries (this can be done in normal mode) and then re-boot and see if you get the freezes.

Repeat this procedure until you have isolated the cause.

Regards,
Reventon

Answer:Computer Only runs on safe mode only

Try performing a windows repair and see if this will fix the issue. You will need your windows xp cd and boot the computer to the CD. Then on the main menu select enter like you are going to install windows for the first time.

Then press F8 to agree to the license agreement and for about 5seconds the windows cd will search for your current operating system. When windows finds the operating system, select "R" for windows repair. Hope this will help solve your problem.

Hello guys,
you are my last hope! I do not know what I am supposed to do anymore, I spent the last 8hours looking on the net what I could do. I am a computer noob and have little experience with computers at all.

Here's my problem. My laptop doesn't start anymore. The first thing I noticed on my boot screen were four parallel vertical lines of dots, then four parallel lines of vertical dashes then dots again and so on. This is in the background from the time when I start my samsung R70, even on the boot screen, as well as on the windows vista loading screen (these little boxes floating from right to left...). These really weird dots are however NOT present in the DOs menu and neither is it after you pressed F8 to boot in safe mode. They are also NOT present in safe mode that means they disappear after the boot screen and are not evident on the black background of the safe mode desktop.
However at the time when the windows vista sign is supposed to flash up and you'd be prompted to enter your password (this is when I start it normally), nothing happens and a greyish-white screen comes up, after which the system just restarts and the whole process happens again (including the dots mentioned earlier). I can run the laptop in safe mode, in fact I am running it in safe mode with network drivers right now to type this, but I cannot, under any circumstances, run it in normal mode. When I start it in safe mode I get the following notice:

Hi -

The BSOD bugcheck (STOP error) = 0x50 = invalid memory referenced

As you said - no service packs installed, which is probably one of the problems here. You need to see if you can re-install Windows and then see if it is stable or not.

I do recommend another re-install of Vista using the manufacturer's (OEM) recovery DVD. This must be the first item on the "to do" list. Contact your father or the system manufacturer and obtain the Vista recovery DVDs. Do you have a recovery partition? Many do. Usually, the key to invoke the recovery partition if F10 - during boot-up.

Two other options until your Vista DVDs arrive from your father -
1. Download and burn Server 2008 - it has the same build as Vista, with a few features that have been disabled. It is a trial offer that can be renewed up to 240 days - http:/... Read more

My computer was running slow with the HD churning away, so I ran the anti-ware (Malwarebytes and Trend Micro) and found no infections.Then I ran defrag, but had only 5% free space, so I deleted and moved files and got to 15%, but defrag runs for 10 minutes and declares itself done, but it looks like only about 20% of the drive is getting defragged and the rest is badly fragmented.I ran CCleaner, chkdsk /r & /f, and went to run defrag in safe mode only to find trying to boot in safe mode causes the dreaded BSoD! But WinXP SP3 runs fine in normal mode!Stop: 0X00000007E (0XC0000005, 0X80537009, 0XF7C5E3E0, 0XF7C5E0DC)No hardware changes in more than a year, the last time I ran in safe mode was a couple of months ago to get rid of a nasty Trojan.So, why will defrag not finish? Why does safe mode cause the BSoD?FWIW:clearing up the HD space had reduced the HD  churn.Thanks!

Answer:Defrag not complete; Safe mode causes BSOD, but XP runs fine....

Did you boot to the recovery console and run chkdsk /r? If not, please do so.

Hi all,

I get a BSOD within 5 mins of startup. It happens whenever the computer has to do a more complicated task, such as opening many windows, formatting something in Word, etc. Sometimes there is no BSOD--it will simply restart and I'll be left with a bootable drive not found error. The computer does not crash while in safe mode.

I reformatted my friend's Dell Dimension using windows xp home edition last week, but now it only boots in safe mode. When I was reinstalling, it kept getting stuck on the part where it says something like "installing devices". I'd have to shut the whole thing down then when I'd start it back up it would resume, but when it finished I could only get it to work in safe mode. I was thinking maybe it was the cd or the drive, but the CD was brand new when I used it, right out of the package, and I tried it in both of the cd drives. What else could this possibly be?

- used two different driver update programs
- uninstalled numerous programs
- removed pretty much all USB devices
- uninstalled everything from Logitech
- uninstalled all virtual drives

another abnormality is that I can not restore or create restore point.
also the BSOD data are not stored (I enabled the path in 'system advanced' settings)

So I need somebody please who can help me solving this problem systematically.

Point is whatever was wrong with my puter I couldn't even get as far as the splash screen and safe mode wouldn't load. I went down and bought Windows 7(x64) (I was running Vista x64). Since I wasn't able to get into windows I had to set it up to boot from the disk first upon startup. Having done that it took everything I had off and just replaced it with Win7. I thought everything was going to be okay. I downloaded the critical Microsoft updates and I think my drivers are up to date. I installed and activated my anti-virus. My system is running SO slow it hangs and before I turned the "auto restart upon error function" off it was constantly telling windows Explorer had some error and my computer puter would restart in one minute. I hardly have anything on here so I am not sure what is causing the problem. Pretty much works just fine in Safe Mode.

A failure may be imminent. The Start up Repair said, QUOTERoot Cause- Bad Hard DiskSo unless you have any other advice I am going to go down and buy a new HDD today. This is way over my head and I really don't want to get the run around when I am having to spend as much money as I am. I just want to be 100% sure that a BAD HDD is REALLY the problem.Thanks to anyone who picks up this lost cause...

Hi, after connecting and disconnecting some external HDD using USB to my pc, BSOD keeps showing constantly after 5 minutes from booting to windows .

I checked RAM, and it urned out to be in good shape, then i tried Registry cleaning, but nothing changed .

It works very well and stable under safe mode only, and my best guess that it's my HDD which is not in good shape, but that doesn't explain how it works fine under safe mode, it supposed to crash also, right ?

I have :

Pentium 4 3.00 GHz
4 GB RAM
Nvidia 8400GS

OS : Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Sorry for my bad English

Answer:BSOD in normal and clean boot, runs fine in safe mode

Answer:Computer runs ok in safe mode but freezes in Nromal

Before we continue I would like for you to use MSConfig to put this machine back into normal start up mode

uninstall the below outdated softwares:


[*]J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 4
[*]J2SE Runtime Environment 5.0 Update 6
[*]Java 2 Runtime Environment, SE v1.4.2_03
[*]

Rerun Hitman and have it delete Malware.
Also, under the "repairs" heading, let it fix it for you.
Once done, rescan with Hitman and attach new log please.

Reboot the machine, install new Java.

Now run the C:\MGtools\GetLogs.bat file by double clicking on it. (Right click and run as admin if using Vista or Windows7) Then attach the new C:\MGlogs.zip file that will be created by running this.

Let me know of any problems you may have encountered with the above instructions and also let me know how things are running now!

My computer is so slow, I can barely stand to work on it.  It runs fine in safe mode, which is what I'm using to access this forum.  I'm running Windows 7, Home, Service pack 1.  I have Avast anti-virus which doesn't detect any problems, and I've run Malware bytes which also doesn't detect any problems.  I run defrag about once ever 6 months, but I don't install or uninstall a lot of programs, so it only every shows about 6 - 8% fragmented.  I have gone through my uninstall list and have eliminated anything that doesn't look usefull or installed on the system.  The only question I have on these are some E-machine programs that look like I don't need them, but they were there when I first got my computer and it ran fine then.  Can anyone help me?

I apologize for posting an identical thread but I'm assuming that each case could be different. Nevertheless, I have the same problem as Jeronis where it freezes after a few minutes on Normal mode.

The mouse pointer still has motion but no functions, can't click on anything, can't shut down, can't ctrl+alt+del. I have followed the READ ME FIRST rules and steps. I was forced to run them in safe mode with networking in order to run the scans. Attached are the logs. Please help.
 

Answer:Computer runs ok in safe mode but freezes in normal, ALSO!

Updated the logs, my apologies.

I've provided internet connection to the PC to allow updates on the scans. Also, ran them as administrator and placed the exe files on the desktop. Sorry I missed those details. Please see attachments

hello, my computer's screen froze the other day and now when I turn it on again it tells me that it didn't shut down properly. Gives me the options of continuing on safe or regular mode. What should I do?? how do I get it back to normal?

Answer:safe mode or regular mode??

Boot to Safe Mode, then shut down normally, then boot to normal mode.
While in Safe Mode you can attempt to troubleshoot the issue, and in Safe Mode with Networking you can even update your drivers (such as your video drivers).

Hi i have been having problems with my 5 year old computer for maybe 6 months, and I have some serious problems with it. One problem is, when the computer started up, it makes this click noise, like someone pushing a button. Me being a complete amatuer, ignored it until finally it totally effed up my computer. My computer wont go into windows xp, it wont even go to safe mode. I can only go to the system restore screen, and i cant even restore my computer since it says " cannot format user portion !" Any help?

I already have all my info stored on a network, so i dont mind like wiping it totally clean, I really just want to delete some stuff on there. (some games and some programs, cuz of serials) please help^^

Hi all,

We were recently having issues with the new versions of Silverlight. My girlfriend tried to download an older version. Apparently the sight she tried to download it from was rogue. I tried to uninstall it (Silverlight) without success. I thought if I went into safe mode, I might be able to get rid of it that way. However, I was not able to boot into safe mode. The computer just went to black screen. I was able to reboot in normal mode by turning off the computer and restarting so I went into msconfig and checked the system boot box in an effort to force reboot in safe mode. Now it wont boot in normal or safe mode. (black screen) If i could uncheck the system boot box, the computer would not be trying to boot into safe mode, so it seems Iím stuck there. Any thoughts?

Whenever I try to boot into xp, one of two things happens.
I try to boot into normal mode or last known good config, and it goes to the login screen, I click on my account, it shows just the desktop, no icons, just the wallpaper, and then goes back to the login screen.
This repeats everytime I click on my account login.

When I try to boot it into safe mode, it flashes something about realtek boot and asks me to hit shift and some other variety of keys but then it disappears as soon as I have a chance to fully read it, it just loops back to the mode select screen, I don't even get to the login screen.

This morning we had a power outage and when I turned my computer back on, it would not boot. I tried several times to hard boot, with no luck. Then I tried safe mode. Ran an antivirus scan and it showed malware and several infections which it cleaned. The computer still would not boot normally. I then ran chkdsk, still would not boot normally. I have ran malware bytes, registry repair and the registry defrag program as well as done a disk clean up. It still will not boot in normal mode.
Since my last problems that you helped me with, I have upgraded to a broadband internet connection and have a home network. The 2 other computers on the network are fine.
A week ago, I had purchased Avast internet security and had problems immediately. It would not allow me to connect to the internet. That was uninstalled and I went back to the free Avast antivirus, Zone alarm and Spyware blaster. I was very unhappy with Avast customer service and support iYogi and decided I did not want Avast on my computer at all. I have since downloaded PC tools free antivirus. Once I have my computer operational again, I am open to suggestions.
Fortunately, I did not change anything on the other 2 computers. Just mine.

Well this is rather embarrassing. My brother and I share this computer, and after coming home from my baseball game yesterday (highschool), I come home to a computer that will not even turn on. After the initial 5 seconds of loading on startup, the usual Windows XP logo and loading bar appear for all of 2-3 seconds, an instant BSOD flashes for around half of a second, and the computer restarts itself. This happens if attempting to load in normal mode, safe mode (all 3 safe modes). The only way I was able to get past the loading screen was to load it in Debugging mode, which I am currently running it in. After a quick scan with malware bytes, 22 objects were found 21 of which were ad-related and the other one being a browser hijack. After successfully removing these and a attempt at a restart, the same BSOD flash, and instant restart. After another load up in Debugging mode, I run a complete MBAM scan and it finds 14 total items, 6 trojans, 4 browser hijacks, and some other malware. After another attempted restart, yet again, the blasted BSOD flash,restart, combo happens. I am currently sitting here completely baffled as to what this could be, MBAM picks up nothing on scans, and Avira is consantly popping up with blocked protocals.I currently have these programs installed ready for use: MBAM, HijackThis, WShredder, Rootkit Buster, Avira, DDS, CCleaner, and Combofix.I have not currently run anthing except MBAM and Avira basic scan.I promise not to make any system changes as it...

Hey guys,

I know this has been outplayed over and over again but I was hoping someone could help me in my particular case. I have just updated to Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit this morning, and now I am having issues connecting to the internet. Actually it seems to connect fine (opens Windows Messenger and everything) but says Page Cannot Be Displayed if I try and open something in Internet Explorer. I searched a few forums and found that I should try it in Safe Mode and voila it worked. The other forums stated that that usually means that I have some 3rd party software blocking my connection...but how do I find out which one it is?

It shows the internet is connected but it will not connect. I am able to connect to my wireless network with my phone and it works fine. Toshiba said since the laptop connects in safe mode that there is a program blocking the connection and that program needs to be found. I did not want to pay them $100 for a 1 time fix. So here I am. the above post sounds similar to what I am experiencing. does it sound like the above fix would work for this issue.

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.

My computer was running slow with the HD churning away, so I ran the anti-ware (Malwarebytes and Trend Micro) and found no infections.

Then I ran defrag, but had only 5% free space, so I deleted and moved files and got to 15%, but defrag runs for 10 minutes and declares itself done, but it looks like only about 20% of the drive is getting defragged and the rest is badly fragmented.

I ran CCleaner, chkdsk /r & /f, and went to run defrag in safe mode only to find trying to boot in safe mode causes the dreaded BSoD! But WinXP SP3 runs fine in normal mode!

Stop: 0X00000007E (0XC0000005, 0X80537009, 0XF7C5E3E0, 0XF7C5E0DC)

No hardware changes in more than a year, the last time I ran in safe mode was a couple of months ago to get rid of a nasty Trojan.

So, why will defrag not finish? Why does safe mode cause the BSoD?

FWIW:clearing up the HD space had reduced the HD churn.

Additionally:
I ran chkdsk /r in the recovery console and System File Checker, with no apparent change.

Answer:Safe mode causes BSOD; WinXP OK in normal mode; defrag not completing....

Running processes can cause this like Toolbars if you have toolbars I'd say remove them completely as they will conflict with I.E.'s toolbar as with other programs like defrag, ( to remove a program make sure it's not running then click Start/ Control Panel / Add-Remove Programs then restart the pc Always restart the pc after installing , removing , or updateing a program ). Then disconnect from the internet and right click on any icons next to the clock and click exit or end to stop them till your done doing the defrag. Then run cleanup disk and try to defrag. If no joy please post a HiJackThis log so we can see if there's other issues http://forums.techguy.org/malware-removal-hijackthis-logs/622404-please-read-here-first-before.html

Hello,

My laptop is slow to boot and will run for 5-10 minutes in normal mode before it freezes and the mouse cursor disappears. At this point it will be completely frozen and I must hold the power button. In safe mode, it seems to run fine without any issues. I have gotten the BSOD twice with this problem, but never long enough for me to actually read what it said. If it makes a difference, my battery is nearly dead and I have to leave the laptop plugged in almost always.

The following symptoms could be entirely in my head...but I figured I would just give all of the information. I think I hear a slight ticking noise on startup and it seems like the fan is working overtime.

The requested .zip file is attached.

Thank you very much for any help. I'm willing to upload any more information you need if you'll tell me how to do it, I'm not overly computer-savvy.

Thanks,
Bob

Answer:all good in safe mode, freezing in normal mode w/ occasional BSOD

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

While we await a BSOD expert to take on your thread, maybe you can work thru these steps...

...since you mentioned that thing work in the safe mode.

Hello,

From last 2 days I am facing constant crash in windows 7 normal mode (Lenovo notebook G580). but when I do boot the pc in safe mode with networking, crash never occurs. I am posting this thread in safe mode only from the same laptop. I have dmp file generated using verifier. and the same with provided exe here. I will try to upload both. I think some driver is causing the crash but can't find which one. please help to resolve this as I hope must not be the hard disk issue.

The thread title gives the exact impression. And it was a good step to enable verifier.

Now disable verifier.

Then ....

Free up the startup. Windows does not need any other program to auto start with it, but the auto start programs often conflicts and causes various problems including BSODs.
Click on the Start button
Type ?msconfig (without quotes), click the resulting link. It will open the System Configuration window.
Select the ?Startup? tab.
Deselect all items other than the antivirus (MSC) and the touchpad driver SynTPEnh.
Apply > OK
Accept then restart.
Then run the laptop normally. Let us see any further BSOD crash dump after doing it.

Everytime i open my pc up in normal mode, it seems to restart itself within a few seconds to a few minutes, It tends to happen when i open up a program like Chrome. I',m currently on safe mode with networking and have done registry cleaners, updated video card drivers and looked for viruses, yet nothing has seemed wrong, I've also done a system restore to when my pc was working fine, but it still was happening, I saw on another post here that i should post my msinfo32 so here you go, Thanks.

Answer:BSOD only occurs in normal mode, Works fine on safe mode.

Just tried opening in normal mode again, got a blue screen within 2 minutes. Didn't open chrome, only programs i had opened was mozilla firefox, and startup programs
