System-start driver(s) failing to load

Question: System-start driver(s) failing to load

Hello and Happy New Year!I'm having a wee bit of trouble with my Windows XP system and I'm hoping this particular problem will be an easy one to solve. (My unit: Dell XPS 600)Beginning in early November my computer began crashing. When checking my 'Event Log' there is an ERROR log around this time (or leading up to each crash) that reads:Source: Service Control ManagerCategory: NoneEven ID: 7026Description: The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: LbdnvraidTo make a long story sort of short, for the last two weeks I've been trying to research and troubleshoot the BSOD problems, which first lead me to a possible driver failure associated with my printer after sending the error report to Microsoft. I updated this and included many other "optional" updates to hardware and software. Soon after, I received new BSOD error messages, which led me to discover RAM failure using Microsoft Memory Diagnostics. I'm not certain that this problem was always the problem or was a result of the hardware/software driver failure the first BSOD screens pointed me to. I have since replaced both modules (going from 2 - 512modules to an upgrade of 2G). Now I currently do NOT have any BSOD problems (this is only day two) BUT now that I'm paying closer attention to the Event Log (because I'm not certain this fixed my bigger problem), I have noticed that the original ERROR is still occurring with each boot up.I'm concerned that soon there will be another domino effect causing other things to fail, including my new memory modules, if I can't get this error fixed. I followed the link to microsoft help & support center through the Event Log, here are the results:Details Product: Windows Operating System ID: 7026 Source: Service Control Manager Version: 5.2 Symbolic Name: EVENT_BOOT_SYSTEM_DRIVERS_FAILED Message: The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: %1 Explanation The specified drivers did not load correctly.

Preferred Solution: System-start driver(s) failing to load

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: System-start driver(s) failing to load

Lbd.sys is a Lavasoft Ad-Aware driver, while nvraid.sys is an nvidia raid driver.FWIW: If you adjust your viewing options, you can see the full file name, rather than just the first portion of it...as is reflected on your original post. Doing so makes it a lot easier to figure out what file is being referenced, since various types of files may possibly have the same initial portion of a given filename.http://www.fileinfo.com/help/windows-show-extensions.htmlThe error message either relates to installed drivers which need to be replaced...or they relate to items which have been removed from yur system but which have startup pointers.If Ad-Aware is currently installed...I suggest that you uninstall it...then reinstall it with a more current version from the Lavasoft website.If Ad-Aware is not currently installed...download/install AutoRuns for Windows - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinte...s/bb963902.aspx. Take a look at the Logon tab only.If you see anything on the list that relates to Ad-Aware or Lavasoft...disable it by removing the check mark.The nvraid.sys driver...are you running a RAID configuration?FWIW: I have an nVidia chipset on this system, but I don't have a nvraid.sys file installed and I don't use the RAID capability of the motherboard.So I would check the BIOS to see how yours is set up.LouisEdited to remove unintended comment.

Guys, I'm running Windows XP and recently when I turn on my PC it makes a single beeb and then seems to run OK.

Tonight, I was running Firefox and the system seemed to slow, before becoming completely unresponsive. I had Task Manager open at the time, however when I tried to shut Firefox down the PC started bleeping like mad and I was forced to do a hard shut down.

I waited about 1 minute and then rebooted and immedietly went into the Error log and found the following entry:

"The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load: StarOpen"

I tried Googling a fix with no luck and I can't find StarOpen in the Services, Apps or Program files. Nor could I find it listed in the Device Manager or the Boot-start list in msconfig.

Can anyone tell me how to fix this?

Sorry if this has already been answered/wrong place. I looked at Google but thought I double check here (since the solutions via Google seem to be refering to a different OS to mine)

First of: Windows Vista, SP2, 64 bit.

Now sometimes (and not now since I am writing this) my Keyboard/Mouse just stops working. It freezes completely and I am unable to use it and am hence required to restart the computer. This happens at random occasions but it usually involves opening some program or what not (I noticed a prominent pattern that the mouse/keyboard freezes whenever I go to speedtest.com measure my speed and then once the download speed bar is finished and upload is about to begin my computer freezes).

I had a look at my event viewer and noticed this:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
i8042prt

Now I am not sure whether this appears at the start and then once I run a program or do something (like go on speedtest.com) the commuter then freezes (i.e. my mouse/keyboard is non-responsive) or the error message comes up after my computer freezes but any help in fixing this mouse/keyboard freezing would be very grateful.

The solution to fixing this problem I founds was to go to Registry editor and change the Start D word from 1 to 4 (but I noticed some saying to delete it completely and yet other sources to change it from 1 to 0 and yet even others to change something that I don't even have under that folder).

If I was to tamper with the reg information, is it possible that I wont ever get access to my keyboard/mouse? My worry is that I might change some value so that I will have no way of getting to the computer with the keyboard/mouse (I am not good with bios) and would not be able to get help on the internet since I can't connect!



It is bad idea

DWORD Start may have following values

0 -boot ,1 -system ,2- auto ,3 -demand, 4 -disabled. Surly if you'll set to 4 you lose access to keyboard and mouse.Don't modify anything.Find folder C:\Windows\Minidump pack it and attache to post.If Minidump folder is empty use verifier tool to diagnose wrong drivers read here:http://www.vistax64.com/973966-post8.html

Yes, BANText.sys is the Belarc Advisor system driver file.It is started automatically from a Run, RunOnce, RunServices, or RunServicesOnce entry in the registry everytime Windows starts.To prevent the error you would need to find and remove that entry in the registry.

I am currently making a device specific module for microsoft MPIO. I have successfully installed the mpio and my own DSM. However, during start-up, an error message comes out saying: "At least one service or driver failed during system startup. Use Event Viewer to examine the event log for details."

When I checked the event log, it says:

TrailNavi is the name of the device specific module that i am making. I am currently using a 32bit server with Windows 2003 OS.

I am trying to test my DSM, but could not do so because the driver can't be loaded..

Any help would be great..

Hi all.

My pc has been hanging randomly and I have to use the power button to shut down/restart.

I've checked in events and there is this error which seems to be causing the problem as the time matches with the hang time.

I posted another topic with another bsod issue in the bsod section, and I was told to run some tests.

A day or so ago, I tried and changed Driver Verifier settings as were instructed in one of the threads here which also mentions that it is an iffy thing to do.

Anyway, I lost windows and could not start again, luckily I had a backup made, and after formatting my HD, loaded it on to it. This error seems to be a driver issue (Screenshot).

Should I go down the Driver Verifier route again ? To be honest I don't want to. If I lose windows again it would be very frustrating.

I've run the following tests so far here

I have no driver issues showing up in Device Manager, so that looks ok.

Please advise. Thank you.

I looked around and found a reference to Mother Board Monitor which at least sounds like it might be the culprit.

Do you have that application installed, or some other temperature / fan speed monitoring sw?

Alex Van Kaam, the author of Mother Board Monitor, stopped development in 2004 citing his frustration getting technical information from mfgrs.

Anyway, if you have Mother Board Monitor installed, remove it. If you have other monitoring sw, post what you have and someone might know more about that sw (MBM source used?)

Problem:
My Windows 7 Professional "Explorer" tree (not Internet Explorer) no longer lists my CD/DVD ROM DRIVE under the Device Manager/Drives. It used to.

I've checked the System Registry and it has lots of info about that ATAPI drive, but my system fails to find the "cdrom" driver (which is the one Windows 7 uses by default). It's not a 3rd-party driver.

The tray on my CD/DVD drive opens and closes properly. Windows just won't recognize the drive, so I can't use it.

The problem I'm having is this:

When I startup Windows XP I get the following message:

"Windows cannot create a temporary profile directory. This may be caused by insufficient security rights. If this problem persists, contact your network administrator"

DETAIL: Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested sequence.

If I click on OK, I get the next screen:

"Windows cannot load the user's profile but has logged you on with the default profile for the system"

DETAIL: Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm the only one who uses the PC, so there is no network admin. The other day what I did was I was looking for ways to speed up the PC and found these 'tweaks' and now my pc doesn't get to Windows at all.

I've tried safe mode, tried getting to system recovery, but it never works, as the same thing happens. I got into the Windows XP Recovery Console and changed a few services to make them start on bootup..but that hasn't fixed it. At one point it did look like it was going to boot up but then it just pretty much stayed at a black screen.

Anyway, I was really hoping I could get some help. It's definitely not a hardware problem as I know what caused it, it's just a matter of how the heck I can get into at least system recovery to undo all this.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Windows Failing to Load - Insufficient System Resources Exist

Hello and welcome to the TSG Forums.

Have you tried using Safe Mode with Networking by tapping Funciton 8 as Windows tries to load? If that works, go to http://www.crucial.com, select your country and click on Scan my Computer. Accept the ActiveX object and let the scan complete. It will tell you what memory (RAM) you have and how much you can increase it by, as well as giving you a price which is usually quite competitive.

If that doesn't work and you're comfortable with a little light disassembling, turn the laptop on its lid on a soft surface - cushion or similar. Look at the base for an icon which looks like a small rectangle on one of the removable hatches and carefully remove that hatch. If you don't have the exact size screwdriver, don't even attempt it but a cheap pack of jewellers' screwdrivers from a hardware shop will have the right one.

Gently press the clips on each side of the memory or RAM stick outwards so the stick releases and springs up. Post back the details from the label along with the make and model of the laptop and someone will advise you how much to buy to supplement or replace it.

I seem to have a problem with NVIDIA NDIS IO Control Driver failing to start at boot up.

Answer:NVIDIA NDIS IO Control Driver failing to start

How often does the error occur? If just on bootup - I'd suggest leaving it alone (since it's not hurting anything). Otherwise, I'd suggest downloading a fresh copy of the nVidia chipset drivers to see if that cures the problem.

It doesnt happen directly but after a while when im on the internet or when I'm trying to run FM 2012 or other games. Then when i reboot I get bsod before windows startup. When the driver isn't installed the computer is running without problem but im not able to play a game or connect the computer to TV and stuff like that.

When I reboot again and put the computer in Safe mode I uninstall the driver in device manager and reboot again and the computer is able to start normally.

The files that cause the bsod is:

atikmpag.sys <------ almost every time this one

dxgkrnl.sys

ntoskrnl.exe
*I looked around on the internet for soloutions, there're many and I have tried almost all. I've tried to remove everything with driver sweeper to install the latest update to my ATI Radeon HD 4870 x2. Even tried to install old updates.

*I have tried to install various OS. Vista x32, x64. Windows 7 x32, x64 and even XP. The problem remains. Now when I know that it doesn't matter I have Windows 7 x64 Ultimate.

*I have opened up my computer and removed all the dust from the motherboard, Graphic card and CPU. The temp is OK!

Answer:When installing Graphic driver, system is failing(BSOD).

Is that a single Radeon 4870 X2 or is it two Radeon HD 4870's? If it's two, have you removed one to see if things run fine with drivers using only one card?

You have 3 crashdumps with 1 dated allll the way back in Jan 2010, yet the timestamps for the modules (drivers) are new. I've personally only seen this caused by either a CMOS issue (which is altering your system clock), a BIOS issue (your BIOS is dated 01/18/2010, sure there's no update?), or using an illegal copy of Windows. I guess it could also be due to crashdump corruption but I doubt it since no other errors were presented when loading it.

Just to be absolutely sure, first run this. If you have the option to RESOLVE do so. Then proceed to the Windows tab and click Copy then paste it here.

Very similar to the situation posted here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic448339.htmlI have a 2 1/2 year old Asus Eee PC 1005PE, running Win 7 Starter. Gotta admit, this little netbook has been impressive and fits my needs pretty darn well. Until last week. I woke up one morning and it was locked up.

Monday couldn't boot up PC, had to go to system recovery and restore to previous day.

Log files show below that 4 things failed to load.

Tuesday couldn't boot up PC again.. tried to restart like 4-5 times.. Finally comes up and in the logs there's numerous things that failed to load. Running a sfc /scannow right now.

Any ideas what this could be related to or what is causing it?

 

Answer:Solved: Boot-Start or System-Start Drivers failed to load.

MpFilter is a driver associated with Microsoft Security Essentials... It looks like that was causing issues. Windows Updates had an update for it.. So I downloaded update.. Restared and it worked fine. Removed MS Security Essentials and installed Symantec istead.

Briefly:
My old system hasn't been powered on for about a year. Problem was the onboard video failed (I think)

Recently replaced it with a video card from another system (riva TNT) and bought some memory (system wouldn't boot, determined that the memory was bad)

Now the system booted but win2K wouldn't work. No problem I have XP now...

After multiple error during the xp install I finally got through it...only the computer will only boot in safe mode..

Initially thought it was a hardare conflict so I booted in safe mode with networking and systematically cleared all the yellow ??? in device manager

Still will not boot normally

Checked event log got the following error:

Searched the net found a M$ support about it

couldn't find amdk7.sys but managed to update the driver over the net, now its there...yet I get the same error

I did the regedit described but no folder called "parameters"

Made one....didn't work....deleted the value
added the key to my available folder....didn't work

I'm at wits end....I've been working on this (off and on) for a month

Can anyone help with this one?????

I'm not sure where to even begin to fix these problems. Some online searches suggested doing a system repair but I want to get some more feedback here before proceeding.

Here is the message from the event log:

I realized some of these are not Windows 7 related but most are. While the computer "works", I do experience frequent reboots and freezes. Perhaps some of these driver loading failures are part of the cause of my issues. I do have another recent thread here regarding system crashes so I'll leave that alone in this post.

TIA

Answer:the following boot start or system start drivers failed to load

Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7, or a Repair Install would a better first option.

You will have to reinstall the third-party drivers again yourself from their website.

Hope this helps,

Dunno if this is the right place for this type of prblem, I dont know much at all about this stuff. I tried searching around but I only found stuff about this with different drivers.

My problem is I just rebooted my pc yesterday, and after logging into windows and getting to the desktop, there was ared msg that popped up from avast antivirus saying it couldnt update or something, then it my pc rebooted, ever since after I logged into windows there was a sound like you hear when you get an error message, then my pc rebooted or crashed, and it keeps happening, I used safe mode and looked at the event viewer and it says:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:

I went to the link it says to goto for more information but it only says to verify you have the latest drivers and stuff, i'm not sure how to do that or even what drivers I have..

My main concern is, is this a something that can be fixed, or can it be a hardware problem and my pc is just screwed, its pretty old though, like 5 years or so, never had any problems like this before :x.

Help!!Wait that is why I am here.  About 2 months ago my computer started to freeze up.  Very random when it would do this and did not seem to matter which program I was working in.  The freeze ups went from every few days to multiple times per day.  I tried doing a system restore to a previous date, but it would freeze up or go though the process and then tell me that it could not restore to the date selected.  I tried multiple dates.  Then finally it just started freezing up after the bios and driver load.  I could not get to the welcome screen, or start in safe mode.  There had been no new programs loaded to cause this.  I have multiple spyware programs, and scanned with all of them, so did not figure it to be a virus.  I tried to reload windows XP but it would freeze during install.  I changed out the battery on the mobo.  Finally I installed a new hard drive, replaced the mother board, and dropped down from 4 sticks of ram to 1 stick of ram to start testing.  It started right up and notified me I was missing 1 stick of ram.  I added the 2nd stick.  Found 1 of the 4 to be bad.  Loaded windows XP and all the wonderful updates.  Got everything back up and running just fine.  That was about 1 month ago.Worked great for about 2 weeks2 weeks ago it starts freezing up again.  Windows explorer does not show my slave drive (this is a new symptom), the system restore does not work etc?&n...

I have created a system repair CD.
Before I make a backup of my hard disk on an external USB hard disk, I decided to test if the system repair CD will allow me to restore my hard disk from a backup on a USB hard disk. The usb HD was not recognized from the system repair environment so I tried to load the USB driver but the driver .sys file was nor recognized either


Is there another way I can restore a backed up version of my HD from a USB portable HD when Windows fails to startup?

Answer:How do I get the System Repair CD to load a USB driver?

Hi,

I think the easiest solution would be to create a system image of your hard disk. I prefer using FREE MACRIUM REFLECT for that:

Macrium Reflect FREE Edition - Information and download

The software works like this:

1. You create a system image of your hard disk, and store it to a USB drive
2. You create a bootable CD

When you need to recover your PC, you boot from the bootable CD, and the browse to the image on your USB drive. The image is restored to your PC exactly the same as the day you made the image.

Its very easy to use, but here is a tutorial that will help you out if you need it:

Imaging with free Macrium

I'm working with a Dell Dimension C521 PC. It came with a PCI-Express video card which apparently has failed, yet the motherboard itself has on-board video. The system will boot using this video output (as opposed to the card which produced nothing) but when it finally gets to windows the auto-detect driver routine kicks in and begins to detect the video card, prompting the user to "Continue Anyway" to finish installing unsigned drivers. Unfortunately this event takes place in front of the installation of the USB keyboard and mouse (times like these I wish it had PS/2 ). Anyway, whether I boot up into Safe Mode or normal a prompt comes up about installing drivers for the on-board chipset. I can't interact with it because the driver install routine for the keyboard/mouse becomes interrupted.
 

Answer:Dell Dimension C521; USB key/mouse driver load interrupted by video card driver load

Bump. I've been thinking... the only way I think this can be fixed is if I boot from a Linux CD or something similar and delete a particular set of drivers for this video card. It can't prompt you to install any drivers if they don't exist, right? But I don't know where to go to delete such files and prevent them from automatically trying to install themselves. Any ideas?

I have a Toshiba satellite laptop model 1955, running Windows XP Home with sp2 and all the updates. Whenever I start up Windows I get an error under the Event Viewer.

It says under System:

The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
PptIRDA

The source is Service Control Manager and the event ID is 7026.

I have Norton Antivirus running all the time and it says I am virus-free. I also have their Internet Security package and use their firewall. I have run Spybot Search and Destroy as well as Ad-Aware and seem to have no spyware that can be detected by those programs. I also periodically run Norton SystemWorks and their one button checkup. I generally run CrapCleaner every day. I have recently run the disk optimizer in Norton, and am quite defragmented.

This problem has been going on for months. My suspicion is that this might be some kind of remote data access thing, but I can't find a driver with this name when I list all the drivers. Another possibility I guess might be a driver for the infrared port, if such exists.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Answer:Boot Start Or System Start Driver Failure

My personal feelings are along the same lines as you. I think your Infrared port drivers are corrupt for whatever reason. I would contact Toshiba for the drivers and reinstall them. See if they are available on the web. I checked this link: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp and found that the model you say 1955 has sub models S801 through S807. So you need a more definitive model number.

Hello everyone,

While I was in the middle of using my system, all of a sudden the mouse and keyboard stopped working. I had no choice but to press the switch button to shut it down. I removed the battery, the power cable and all the input devices (Keyboard and mouse). After replacing them back I switched the machine ON, and I could see the flashing light on the Keybard, and the mouse light also ON (red). The memory count starts to the end, on a black screen, and then followed by the blue box at the bottom left of the screen where written "F1: Save Changes".

But I can't get rid of it this time because the Keyboard doesn't function/respond.

Machine Desktop HP 7100 CMT, Win7 ultimate 32bit, IE11, HP Keyboard PS/2, HP mouse PS/2.

I removed the HD into another machine, it works without any problem. Therefore, the problem seems NOt on the HDD side. All the keyboard and mouse work properly on other machines.

I changed the Keyboard to USB but the same result. I removed all the memory modules of 4GB in total, and replaced them with just one stick of 1GB, again no change, still can't move past the black screen to record the change, or to advance to Windows, or to access into BIOS setup.

Hi All,

I've been asked again to see if I can restore a friend's PC. It's an HP desktop PC, that should be running Vista At first, it wouldn't do anything so I assumed it was hardware related. After I took off the cover and vaccuumed it out somewhat, while it was slightly tilted, it did attempt to boot, but the operating system would not start. I used Hiram's Boot CD, and didn't solve anything. I attempted to do a recovery with the CD for my Toshiba laptop, but it was unsuccessful. The owner says she cannot find a recovery CD, which I think would make this much easier.

Today, I created the Avira Rescue Disk, twice, because instead of a penguin logo, what appeared on a black screen were two oppossums wearing beak-masks. I assumed I had downloaded a virus from a bad link, but the same thing happened on my second attempt, so now I'm wondering if the system is blocking the antivirus software from running on the CD.

I really enjoy solving complex problems, but have very little knowledge about computers compared to you guys. I just happen to be the most computer literate person around who'll try to solve PC problems for free. Can anyone lead me in the right direction? I have performed many diagnostic tests, and really don't think it is hardware, but I'm not positive. There are several partitions; none will boot, and I'm just not sure what's what. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi,

I posted this annoying problem on the MS community but I think only useless moderators are running that forum, hopefully that is not the case here.

I am using win7 64 bit and recently my machine can no longer hibernate for a second time after a clean boot (after a clean boot it can hibernate but then it cannot after a resume). I noticed Event 45 in the event viewer and it does not make any sense. I tried to hibernate from the command line but I am getting a message "not enough storage is available to process this command.(8)". When the hibernation fails I got back to the login screen (as if I locked the station).

It is an annoying problem since I have to restart the PC every other day, so if anyone smart enough to give some insights, I would be grateful.

i do have the vista installation disc unfortunately due to the short length of the SATA connectors from the power supply they simply do not reach the ROM drive while being connected to the hard drive at the same time.

if anyone needs any more info just ask.

Answer:(Failed to load because of a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt)

Hello and welcome to the forum...

Can you tell me if you can get to your main desktop if not have you tried to boot in safe mode. Here's how to boot in safe mode just in case.

Safe Mode

But please let me know if you can get to your desktop.

Answer:windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing or corrupt

I have a few questions:
1. Do you have a repair disc?
2. If not, does the PC have a recovery partition?
3. Can you boot from a live CD (such as Puppy Linux)?
4. What were you doing before the problem started?

Hi everybody,

This is my first post on this forum. I've recently come across a problem with my computer. I'm running Windows Vista 32 bit. I shut the computer down one day, and the next day turning it on I came across this problem.

File: \Windows\System32\Drivers\nqgbwc.sys

Status: 0xc0000225

Info: Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

I have no clue what this means. It said insert windows installation disc and repair computer. I did this, self repair found nothing. I then tried system restore and it could not initialize which is a pain in the ass. My last resort is to reinstall windows vista but I think I'm going to lose everything.

If anyone has any advice or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
Kevin

Answer:Windows failed to load because a critical system driver is missing, or corrupt.

First see if you can boot into Safemode without it giving you that error. If you can, first try searching for that driver to see if its even in your system32 folder.

I recently just checked my computer and it is not in mine by default, which means its a file relating to a third party program/app that has been installed on your machine. If you can figure out what the abbreviation for NQGBWC is from the list of installed applications on your computer, then you can isolate which program on startup is causing the failure on booting windows due to the missing system file.

As you may have already tried, i cannot simply google search nqgbwc.sys as it gives me just THIS post only. If you cannot find the problem, then the only thing possible from there is to reinstall your OS but of course BACK UP EVERYTHING IMPORTANT FIRST.

Question: Failing to load OS

Hey,

I was recently on my computer and decided to play call of duty 4 just for fun. I play for a few minutes but then my computer crashes. Confused, I turn my computer on again and attempt to play again. I get past a few seconds but then it crashes again.

Except this time, when I try to turn on my computer, my OS begins loading but then a blue screen (I don't think the BSOD) appears saying some error about the OS crashing while it was booting up with an error code 0x000000000 (not 0000xF or anything, just zeros if I recall). After a bunch of diagnosis with the Boot Menu, I just gave up and let it get onto the "safe mode selection area" and just let it constantly try to get in normally. Finally it worked at some point but I'm afraid to turn off my computer. I researched into it and eventually found out that my monitor is hitting a huge temperature.

Hardware monitor ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT
Temperature 0 95?C (202?F) (GPU Core)

Here is an image from Speedfan.

Anyway, any support would be appreciated.

dxdiag report attached.

Answer:Failing to load OS

Since there is no edit button, I thought I should provide this info (when i found out that it actually was the BSOD).

Question: XP Failing to load

Hi. Just trying to sort out a friend's PC, but having no luck. It's an Advent 3107 running XP Home Edition SP1 which had multiple viruses and approx. 800 files of Spyware! As it was infected to the extent that XP wouldn't load, I have clean it using NAV and Ad-Aware (using a plugable drive bay in my PC) and also used the System Recovery CD (non-destructive option) that came with the PC. Even now though, Windows still fails to load - it get's just pass the XP splash screen where it goes blank, an error appears for about 1/4 of a second and then it reboots. Even Safe Mode won't work !

Am I going to have to wipe it completely clean (format) or is there an easier way round this problem, bearing in mind it had six 'private' users setup and a LOT of programs (nightmare job)?

Many thanks for any help
Mike
 

Answer:XP Failing to load

I turned my computer of and it was working fine came back a few hours later when i tried to boot up it restarted before completing the boot up process on boots after that it got as far as the safe mode menu but when i selected a choice (didnt matter which) it agian restarted i thought maybe there was a problem with my installation so i inserted my XP pro disk and booted from CD only for it to find an error on the CD statting that a file/folders wernt there so i decided to try the disk in a spare machine it tested the hardware which it hadnt done/completed on my machine and stateds the computer didnt have sufficient memory.

I have since tried to install on a fresh Harddrive using a spare CD drive turned of all USB support all to no avail if anyone has any ideas pls help

Answer:Failing to load

Did you try to install something before you turned off the machine the first time?

Give us a little more info on what BEFORE you turned the machine off.

Sounds like you had to do "something" on the machine before turning it off.

Question: xp failing to load

My basic problem is that xp is failing to boot up properly!


I am running xp professional version 2002, service pack 3
on a dell vostro 420
intel core 2 quad cpu
[email protected]
2.66GHz, 3.00GB of RAM

This is my story/what I've done so far.

a few days ago xp started loading up quite slowly, during the xp loading splashscreen.
It would load eventually but was just taking a while.
then the next day, it would not load.
It seemed to get stuck in the splashscreen part of loading.
I think this happened around the 12th/13th.

safe mode loaded ok
xp sometimes loaded ok after booting up in safe mode, then restarting.
downloaded avg free 9.0

while booting safe mode something along the lines of 'press escape to cancel loading sptd.sys' popped up.
thinking this 'sptd.sys' was causing the problem, I read up on it a bit, and renamed it 'sptd.sys.bak'

still same problem.

unrelated problem(??) caused my wireless to go down.
(had it about 18months http://timecapsuledead.org/)

installed and ran avg free 9.0, but didnt/couldnt update
- nothing found.

ran a diagnosis and it picked up error code 2000-0142
cleaned out dust from the inside case.

while in safe mode I edited msconfig, selected noguiboot,
with the splashscreen gone I now get a loading bar at the bottom of the screen. This loads fast-reaches the end quickly, but then it just stops loading right at the end.

safe mode gets stuck booting at '.......\mup.sys' on the odd occasion.

Hi everyone, this is my first post, but knowing Windows it won't be my last!

I have recently setup a MS windows 2003 Small business network, with ADSL shared access to the Web. The network is running fine, email is collected without problem, directories share happily, things are all quiet on the LAN front. Unfortunatly not on the Web front.

I have a client who uses the web 50% of the day, he goes to a range of sites including ebay. Some days the sites load up without a hitch, sometimes the sites need two or three attempts with the refresh button before they load, sometimes (and this is the real problem) they fail to load after each new page, so when he is conducting business on ebay for example, it takes an age to perform simple tasks because he is constantly refreshing pages and going back.

Can anyone point me in the right direction, I am using a Belkin Wireless ADSL modem and BT Internet.

Your help in this matter would be greatly appreciated as it is causing him and me to tear whats left of our hair out!

Answer:laptop failing to load

Turn OFF the sleep and/or hibernation. If the issue goes away then we know that that is the issue.

Depending on what all is running when a machine goes it sleep or hibernation, then it can take a long time to restore ALL that was running.

When was the last time you did total shut down this laptop and NOT just gone into the sleep/hibernation mode?

Dell Precision T3500 – Win 7 SP1 64-bit
Recently I added a StarTech PCIe eSata Controller Card to my system (slot 1 PCIe x 4) to add 2 external eSata ports.

After reboot Win installed the drivers; I did not use the supplied CD for driver install. The manual said that CD is not needed for Win 7.

After reboot to finish installation of drivers, I discovered that none of my Firewire devices (a scanner and an external WD hard drive) were working, nor were they even listed in Device Manager.
Tried to reinstall / update the drivers but got the message that Windows could not install the drivers because the device could not be started (code 10).

Since I need these two 1394 devices, I physically removed the eSata card and restored the system to a point prior to when I last worked with the two devices (they were both working fine then). After restore, the 2 devices still do not work. I was able to “install” them in Device Manager as “Legacy hardware” but they both show with the yellow exclamation mark.
Updating driver results in the message that Windows was not able to install the driver because the device could not start.

After some sleuthing I noticed that my IEEE 1394 Bus Host Controller and LSI 1394 OHCI Compliant Host Controller are not listed in Device Manager. Adding them as “Legacy hardware” does not work since Device manager does not list any hardware / driver options for that.

Opened MSCONFIG / System Information / Tools tab ... Read more

Answer:Win 7 64-bit: 1394 ohci system driver does not start

Problem solved. Something clicked in my mind ... I opened the case, checked the 1394 card and ... it was sitting loosely so that I could lift it without any tug. Seated the card firmly, and now everything works. My two 1394 devices are up-and-running.
The most simple thing ... and it bugged me for days.

I've been using the PC version of Mac's iDisk for a couple of years now. A friend and I utilize it as a shared drive. Recently, when I went to load it, I was unable to. I have no idea why it suddenly stopped working. I have changed nothing on my firewall, which shouldn't affect whether or not I can mount a drive, anyway. I don't know of any changes I could have made that would cause this. I'm not one to tinker with my system much, so if I did change something I would remember it. The only thing I can think of is that I got a new mp3 player that shows up in my system menu as an outside drive when it is plugged in. But I can't imagine that having any bearing on whether or not the iDisk should work. I am stumped. I assume I must have denied it access somehow, but have no idea. Have un-installed, re-installed, etc.

Hi there.

I was wondering if someone could help me out here. I'm having some problems with IE based browsers.

The problem: When I click on an icon to run the browser Avant (or any IE based browser), the tray icon appears and an event appears on the taskbar (as if the program were minimised), yet the program doesn't start at all.

Reinstalling Avant, doesn't solve the problem, even after being Regcleaner'd.

In Orca (or any Firefox based browser), the problem is not there.

It's so frustrating because, even though I don't use it that often, I just hate the fact that it's a problem, and there is an underlying cause that I'm not seeing.

I did manage to do a cleanup using System Restore, CCleaner and Hijackthis which solved the problem a while ago, but it's back again and I have no idea what's causing it and I'd rather not do another restore if it's just gonna come back again.

Hi, I'm going to say what my problem is and if anyone could help me figure out how to resolve it I would very much appreciate it. To start off, I recently posted a thread because I needed to reinstall system32\hal.dll and system32\ntoskrnl.exe, if it would help someone to see that thread to have some background on my current issue, here's the link: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-nt-2000-xp/720406-system32-hal-dll-missing-corrupt.html
Towards the end of that thread I start to describe my current issue. Here's the status on my issue as of right now. When I turn on my computer, it goes to a screen that looks like this:

We apologize for the inconvenience, but Windows did not start successfully. A
recent hardware or software change might have caused ths.

If your computer stopped responding, restarted unexpectedly, or was
automatically shut down to protect your files and folders, choose Last Known

Hello all,
I recently had to remove a trojan, with help from folks here, and also remove one windows update that preventing my machine from starting. Since then my dell laptop seems to be running fine, insofar as I can start up and do most everything except there is no sound at all. While trying to figure out what is wrong with the sound I ran dxdiag, and then the event viewer.

In dxdiag, the following: "No sound card was found. If one is expected, you should install a sound driver provided by the hardware manufacturer."
I should have Realtek HD audio... the codecs and legacy drivers are all functioning normally.

BUT there are several errors in event viewer.
Errors for acpiec: \Device\ACPIEC: The embedded controller (EC) hardware didn't respond within the timeout period. This may indicate an error in the EC hardware or firmware, or possibly a poorly designed BIOS which accesses the EC in an unsafe manner. The EC driver will retry the failed transaction if possible.

Also for DCOM: DCOM got error "This service cannot be started in Safe Mode " attempting to start the service EventSystem with arguments "" in order to run the server: {1BE1F766-5536-11D1-B726-00C04FB926AF}

And:

Absolutely, positively no idea what you're talking about.... You tried to turn on the ethernet port light?Moving memory around?Installed his newer version of XP? Over what?You tried to install an OLDER copy of XP?You then tried Windows 98?I honestly have no idea what you've done (or why) or what is currently on your system.

Greetings,
 
I wondered if someone could help me with an issue that began occurring earlier in the day. 
 
I use an HP PC with Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.
 
The problem is, whenever I open certain pages, Netflix.com being one of them, I get a list of hyperlinks. The page is appears in list format and is completely white save for the list of links. The happens with the Windows website as well as Safari's homepage and probably others as it seems random to me why some work and others do not.
 
I currently use Chrome as my browser, but have tried Firefox as well and I get the same result.
 
So far I have run a Norton scan which resulted in nothing. I also ran Malwarebytes and it told me as well that there was nothing.
 
I've looked into several threads trying to find out what the problem was and even followed one from here about the possibility of removing Scorpion Saver (since it sounded like that maybe a possibility for why this is happening) which included putting my computer in Safe Mode with Networking and then running RKill which I did and also turned up nothing. I ran another Malwarebytes scan just in case since it was listed on that thread of steps to follow but yet again it turned up nothing.
 
I've tried simply restarting my computer and nothing. I've uninstalled and re-installed Silverlight and nothing. I've turned off my extensions on Chrome and restarted the browser but the problem still persists. I've cleared the ... Read more

Have been having a bit of trouble the past few days whereby my PC is constantly crashing, and only loading up about 1 in every 10 restarts. I've had a few error messages in line with the attached picture. I'll also include a hijack log in case that shows anything (I have no idea what hijack shows, so if it's irrelevant, ignore it!). There's obviously some sort of problem but I have no idea about how to rectify it so any input is appreciated. I'm on XP. Thanks

Hi guys, I was using my computer last night and everything was fine. I watched a film then turned it off and went to bed. This afternoon I turned it on again and for some reason it wont load...... It comes up with an error something along the lines of.

Could not find boot device. Please insert the media device and restart.

I inserted the windows O/S disk I have to try and do a full system restore and that loads just fine. I enter my CD key and when it comes to the part where I have to chose either upgrade or install clean copy. I select clean copy and it says "Failed to find suitable device" Basically, I think my computer doesnt recognize the hard drive......

When I go into the BIOS and select boot sequence. I says

1. CD-DRIVE
2. Floppy Drive

and thats it, it doesnt list the hard drive..... I dont want to go and but another hard drive and then thats not the problem although i'm pretty sure that is the problem.

Any advice or help would be awesome.

Thanks.

Hello.

I have a Dell Latitude L2 laptop, with WinXP installed.

Last time I had it on, it said a file (I think something in a Photoshop directory) has been corrupted, and to run chkdsk. So, I set it to run chkdsk the next time it loaded.

On starting it up today, it went into chkdsk fine, fixed a few small errors it found... and then came up with a blue screen of death with something along the lines of "high_or_low" or "above_or_below" or something on it.

I turned it off, and back on again, and now every time it loads it comes up with the "Windows did not start successfully" screen; however, whatever I choose it just gets to a certain point (it re-runs chkdsk if either "normal" version is selected, or copies lots of files if a safe mode version is selected) and then restarts. Over and over again.

So no matter what I do, I don't seem to be able to get into Windows. I've tried plugging in a CD drive with a WinXP CD, but it just seems to more or less ignore it. I've tried to enter the bios setup, but I'm not sure I've ever known the password and doubt there's anything I could do in there anyway.

Is there anything I can do? And if there isn't, is it possible to re-install WinXP on it by plugging the hard drive into my main 'pute through a caddy off eBay?

Thanks!

Answer:Laptop keeps failing to load Windows...

I gave up on there being anything I could do with the laptop and bought a hard drive caddy.

So, now that the laptop's hard drive is connected to the desktop 'pute, is there anything I can change from here that would likely make it start working again? Or, failing that, is it possible to reinstall Windows on it from here, preferably keeping the old settings? Or am I just going to have to copy all the files off it and start again?

This has been an ongoing problem for me and i've tried multiple things. My web browser will not display the car itself on tirerack.com when you try and choose wheels for it. It refuses to load any car it just says 'please wait while the image loads' and i'll wait forever and it never changes. Also on www.cars.com it won't display anything except the title bar at the top. I've tried deleting the offline file content and clearing the cookies and i've also reset the defaults under the Advanced tab in the Internet Options but nothing will fix it. What am I to do? Thanks!

I use Microsoft Outlook for business and personal email accounts and whenever I double click on the desktop shortcut I get an error message that reads: "The Add-in "avastd! 4" (C:\Program Files\Alwil Software\Avast4\ashOutXt.dll) cannot be loaded and has been disabled by Outlook. Please contact the Add-in manufacturer for an update. If there is no update available, please uninstall the add-in." I click ok. Then another error message pops up and says "Cannot start Microsoft Office Outlook. Cannot Open the Outlook Window." I recently had help with this and others in an HP forum, say that I need to reinstall outlook again, is this the case or is there something wrong with outlook.

Hi - just wondering if anybody can offer any suggestions as I'm a bit stuck. Have run out of variations on a general theme of switching stuff off and on again.Windows 7 (64 bit) is refusing to start: instead displaying the following message:"Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause. To fix the problem:1) Insert the Windows installation disc & restart your computer.2) Choose your language settings, and then click 'next'3) Click "repair your computer"I have done attempted step 1 in 2 different ways - and each time ended up back at step 1 (no sign of the mystical step 2): The first method I tried was to first insert the Windows 7 64-bit software disc, then switch the PC off and on again sing the power switch at the front of the base unit. This led me to the same problem message as before and did not offer me the chance to execute options 2 then 3 as expected; My 2nd method was to have the disc inserted again but this time press 'Ctrl'; 'alt; 'Delete' to attempt a restart. Again whilst the PC appeared to attempt a reboot the same 3 step error message appeared.I'm at a loss how to get the installation disc to run.Note*: Prior to the scenario described I had seen error screens with two user options: one to carry out a repair (this failed to do run anything and produced the error already described; there was another option to load Windows 7 normally, which did the same thing.I'm stuck now, does anybody have any suggestions on something else I ...
