Congratulations virus now cannot boot (regular or safe mode) I get the BSOD

Question: Congratulations virus now cannot boot (regular or safe mode) I get the BSOD

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!!!

Preferred Solution: Congratulations virus now cannot boot (regular or safe mode) I get the BSOD

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: Congratulations virus now cannot boot (regular or safe mode) I get the BSOD

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.

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.

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).

If anyone could please help me with this it'd be greatly appreciated, thanks.

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.

Summary of the BSOD's:

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... Read more

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!

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?"

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
Stop with a 0x7f
Page fault in non-paged area with a Win32k.sys
got 2 more new ones today
special pool detected memory corruption 0xC1
pfn_list_corrupt 0x4E
Going to add new dump in reply here in a bit.

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.

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

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?

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.

What should I do?

Hi,

I have a desktop Windows 10 x64 machine that's been working fine for months/years. It was automatically updated from Win7 last year.

This morning I replaced the 2x4GB DDR3 memory with 2x8GB DDR3. This seemed to work though for some reason it works at 800MHz instead of the 1600MHz that the memory supports. The BIOS shows mem freq 1600 as expected. But this is the smaller issue. The PC worked booted fine.

When everything seemed to working as expected, I was still bothered by the slow startup and login times. Now with 16GB I had expected these times to improve.
I installed Windows SDK performance recording tool and set it to record the boot sequence and restarted the PC.

Windows failed to boot twice (UNEXPECTED KERNEL MODE TRAP) and went into the auto diagnostic repair mode. Restore just spins until I lose patience. I did manage to boot in safe mode and disable the recording. It did not help.

Running sfc/scannow "did not find any integrity violations".

I also managed to uninstall the Windows SDK/Perf Rec (by restarting the MSI service) - to no avail.

I ran the Windows memory test, but when it's done it reboots, the reboot fails, and I never did see the results.

I replaced the new RAM with the original ones, but this did not make any difference (BIOS setting are as they were originally).

I'm totally stumped!!

Please advise,

Thanks!!

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.

Curious where the issues could be. I posted last night that when I was trying to run DISM or SFC a small second window would appear and close and then the processs would not start at all. It would just sit there and do nothing. The other thing is I could not close those cmd windows where sfc and dism were not working even via task manager. I was going to do a reset of windows, but I thought I would give something one last try. I booted into safe mode with networking and dism and sfc ran perfectly and completed. I am at work right now. I haven't tried to go to desktop on regular boot. I was going to do a couple more sfc dism when I got home to make sure things were fixed. My question is what could cause dism and or sfc to run perfectly in safe mode, but not on regular boot?

So I restarted my computer in safe mode to try to turn off any unneeded processes that could be causing the problem and to do a system restore but the only thing that would come up was my libraries they automatically popped up my music/pictures/video nothing else no desktop background, icons, start menu, task bar... nothing!

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

SweetTech just helped me clear out some malware and referred me to this forum when I ran into some interesting issues with Safe Mode:

1. I could not log into safe mode as administrator, it stalled at "getting personal settings". I am able to log on with as my regular user though.

2. In Safe Mode my C drive has 2 Gigs more of free space than in regular mode (is that normal? I though what's on the drive is on the drive no matter what mode I use...)

I have an HP Pavilion Laptop running WinXP SP3.

Many thanks for your input and advice!

Answer:Difference in disk space between Safe Mode and Regular Mode

In Safe Mode my C drive has 2 Gigs more of free space than in regular modeHow are you reading this , or from what program.I think this is only due to being in Safe Mode and in Safe mode you are not using all processes compared to Normal mode.Is the first item an issue for you, then you could have asked S /Tech during her help.Thank You -

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

Answer:XP won't load in regular mode (black screen), but will in Safe Mode

Just to clarify, I don't really care if the XP installation is fixed, I just want to know if there's a way to get the files off the HD onto an External USB drive. There's gotta be a way... right?

Answer:BSOD when trying to boot in normal mode, safe mode works fine

You may need to run SFC up to 3 times for it to have a chance to repair all files.

If it won't then you can consider a Repair Install.

However be aware that factory preinstalled Win7 is one of the worst possible installs of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilties that intefere with better versions built into Win7. So I would strongly consider doing the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If you decide to try to repair you can also capture the BSOD file and post it up for one of our BSOD analysts as shown here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums

Hey guys,
Thanks ahead of time for the help. I can honestly say I'm dumbfounded with this issue and would rather ask for help then hook up my master HD as a slave and force a reformat which would be my next step.

Anyways, here's the background on the issue.

Rig:
AMD Athlon 64 3700+ OC'd to 2.75ghz
Asus A8N SLI Deluxe Mobo
BFG Tech Nvidia 7800 GTOC x2 (SLI)
Dual Sata Hd's, both the 3gb/s connection. (750gb main/250gb Backup)
Sound Blaster XFI Fatal1ty sound card
Creative modem blaster v.92 dialup modem ( @ dialup)

A few days ago, not quite sure why, but when I booted the comp the graphics card proceeded to tweak out and basically looked like fuzz upon entering windows. Eventually after hard resetting it a few times it'd boot normal. Today, I was running Nvidia NTune utility to find a stable OC setup for my PCI bus and what not, and it rebooted as normal during the process. Graphics card tweaked again, so I did what I know to do and uninstalled/reinstalled the drivers for my 7800's. Seemingly fixed the problem. Rebooted and resumed the OC process and went to watch TV.

45 Minutes later I come back and my computer is rebooting itself constantly. Upon getting the the xp loading screen, it BSoD's and reboots.

So, I try and boot in safemode to uninstall/reinstall drivers yet again. When I press safemode, it begins loading basic drivers. When it gets to SPTD.sys it pauses, locks up, and reboots (no BSoD)

Next step, repair through XP installer di... Read more

Answer:[SOLVED] BSoD on standard boot, safe mode boot, and xp install disc boot

Update:

Well, a friend needed me to fix a design for him emergency status in Illustrator CS3, so I went to work troubleshooting.

All signs point to NTFS.sys being corrupt, etc. Which makes the drive unreadable, hence the reboots.

So, I snagged my dads IDE harddrive from his computer, hooked it up as master in my computer and it still gave me the BSoD. I then unhooked both of my Sata Hd's, and ran ONLY the IDE drive. This IDE drive is fine (i'm on it right now on my dads comp to write this). I try and boot my system off just his harddrive and it STILL gave me the BSoD.

Only difference is the BSoD is staying up now on normal boot so I can give you the error.

Error code is 0x0000007B? I believe.

But yeah, the computer is still unable to boot off a good HD even with the bad ones not hooked up.

Now I'm thinking a memory issue? or Video ram issue? Fried GPU/RAM?

AHHHHHH!!!!! i have no idea what to do. This is ridiculous. meanwhile my friend is screwed on his design for a t-shirt i told him i'd do.

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.

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.

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 !"

Hi,

Last couple of weeks have noticed that it takes longer to access directories on my hard drives (both internal and USB). Could take up to a minute to access a directory.

Then Last night the laptop started the following.

- Boots to the Windows Loading screen and sits for a few mins.
- BSOD Error = UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

Have tried Safe Mode and the following happens (regardless of whether I try safe mode command prompt of ordinary).

- Loads the Loading Windows Files page
- Gets to Loaded: \Windows\system32\DRIVERS\CLASSPNP.SYS and hangs
- A few mins later get BSOD Error = UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

Have tried recovery mode but following happens.

- Takes a few mins but boots to the screen with the leaf and bird in right side, cursor in middle. No window / Menu appears although I can move the mouse.
- Sits here for even (have left it for 1 hour and same issue.

I desperately need to access the drive to get some data off and then am happy to wipe.

Any ideas?

Answer:BSOD - W7 - won't boot even in safe mode

I suggest starting all troubleshooting with the following diagnostic tests. They'll save you a lot of time and heartache if there is a hardware failure, and you'll have the disks on hand in case you need them in the future:





Quote:
H/W Diagnostics:
Please start by running these bootable hardware diagnostics:
Memory Diagnostics (read the details at the link)
HD Diagnostic (read the details at the link)


Then run Startup Repair at least 3 times from the installation disk (or from here: Download Windows 7 System Recovery Discs &#x2014; The NeoSmart Files )
If that doesn't work, then try "bootrec /fixmbr" and "bootrec /fixboot" at the Command Prompt.

This presumes that your system isn't infected. If it is infected, you'll have to remove the infection first. I'd suggest posting over in the Security forums for assistance with using a rescue disk to remove viruses: System Security - Windows 7 Forums

I've read the instructions for posting on the BSOD issues, but am unsure how to proceed since I can only get my laptop to boot in SafeMode with CMD prompt. Any other method of boot has resulted in fairly immediate BSOD that includes DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Via SafeMode with CMD prompt, I entered sfc /scannow, (per How to repair the operating system and how to restore the operating system configuration to an earlier point in time in Windows Vista) and restored my system to yesterday, when all was fine.

However, the restore resolved nothing. Is there any way I can post pertinent information without being able to run any .exe programs, or how can I follow the instructions for posting to this thread with using the cmd prompt?

I'm obviously a tech novice with just enough skills to Google solutions and the patience to wade through scores of old postings on various forums, so please go gentle on me.

Answer:BSOD right after boot, even in Safe Mode

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP
We could also use some system information, which you can get easily by running msinfo32.
To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

Hello,

I would appreciate any input about this problem.

My set up is or was dual boot Windows 7 rc712 x64 and vista x64 on 2 partitions on the same drive. Suddenly bsod and looped rebooting with windows 7 and I can't even load windows 7 in safe mode. This ocurred after a video crashed in windows 7. I could not load safe mode but I could load vista x64 reguarly(it was a fresh OS I never used). I did a windows 7 upgrade install over the vista when I meant to reinstall on the windows 7.

I had tried to boot from windows 7 disk and couldn't repair the old windows 7 installation. How do I get back to my original windows 7?

Some other babkground info. Prior to all this but maybe unrelated were dreaded nvlddmkm.sys errors even after fresh installs of windows. This error was under my old 32 bit vista right after I changed video cards and occured after windows loads or windows media player opens. My solution was reinstall windows thus I upgraded to windows 7. My orginal windows 7 custom install(not upgrade) still had some errors though not as many errors and I could boot into safe mode, shut down, then everything was back to normal until the next error.

Answer:BSOD - Cant boot into safe mode

Welcome to the sevenforums! cjm18

I think one of the main problems you are having now with that error is from it being a generic error and not a hardware problem. That file name comes up a lot when someone is running an NVida card while those running ATI cards run into the same with a different file name provided. "atikmdag stopped responding" is also what someone was taking note on at nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered.

Since the first 7 install was problematic you may simply seen a bad install that needed to be replaced or something simply didn't go on fully. For insuring the best results you may not like the answer depending on how you have the Vista/7 dual boot set up. Which version is on the first primary?

If 7 was installed onto the second primary with the 64bit Vista on the first the solution would be reformatting the 7 primary for a totally clean install of 7 to avoid passing on the problems from the present installation seeing a brand new registry to work with as well. It would seem the present installation is loaded down with headaches you want to get rid of rather then to continue on with.

I gave my buddie's computer a major overhaul, i replaced the mobo, cpu, vid card and memory.

When i boot up, it passes the POST,-->

Norton GoBack starts with the prompt "press spacebar to use norton goback",-->

I then see the faintest glint of the Windows loading screen..-->

but right after that, i see the faintest glint of the BSOD-->

Then the computer reboots--^

No other mode of windows works, memtest shows good ram, Knoppix loads without problem, so im ruling out the cpu and mobo as well. Tried different vid cards and keyboards, so im ruling out hardware.

My first order of buisness is to try to replace whatever corrupted file is causing windows to crash. or just repair the installation from the XPpro disk

If i cant figure that out, ill do a fresh install.

Any suggestions?
 

Answer:BSOD on boot, no safe mode

If you didn't do anything to prepare the os for a major hardware transplant, such as sysprep, you'll likely find the best solution is a fresh install, which in my opinion is the best option.
I always prefer a nice clean install on a "new" machine.

Hello,

After reading some of the more recent posts, it seems I may have a problem similar to the following post "871963-browser-hijacked-keeps-redirecting." I think I was infected about 4 days ago. One night I received an error when logging off my laptop, I think I hit end program so it would shut down, the next day when I turned my laptop on I noticed the problem.

My symptoms include:

-Blue Screen when trying to boot to Safe mode - STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x80537009, 0xF7AEA508, 0xF7AEA204)
-Windows Media Center not working... when you double click, it does show an instance running in processes, it just doesn't ever open.
-Initially, I was getting redirects in firefox when using google or bing. Now I am getting tabs that randomly open of their own accord.

I too have CA security installed... have always been less than impressed with it's ability to detect and block anything. That's keep the free version of malwarebytes on my computer for backup. However, the current piece of malware infecting my computer has been illusive. In attempt to detect it, I have run the following:

1) CA (of course)
2) malwarebytes - I have a log
3) avira (online CD and rescue CD w/o update)

I recently came home to my computer off and when I went to turn it back on, it started up with a black screen after the windows logo with just the cursor available. Things like ctrl-alt-delete did nothing so I tried booting up in safe mode which ended up with same black screen and cursor.

I then went to search the internet for possible fixes and have done/verified the following:

Used boot CD and ran Start-up repair, told me to remove any mp3 players or USB devices and try starting again, didn't work (nothing was connected in the first place). The start-up repair log appears to identify no problems with the system.

It's not a hardware issue, the drive itself has been checked on another computer and I've already used a new drive and installed a new copy of windows using the same computer.

Not a virus issue, scanned the drive for viruses and did a chkdsk on it, neither of which turned up anything.

Unfortunately there are no restore points saved so I can't just revert to an older profile.

Since I can access the drive on another computer, is there any program I could run to try and fix the problem? This seems to be the only thing that hasn't been covered in other topics similar to this one which I've found online.

This is my last resort so any help that you can provide will be greatly appreciated,
Thanks!

Answer:Black Screen on start-up in regular and safe mode

Did you take the cover off and make sure all cables are connected, make sure that your RAM is seated properly. Just anything that might be loose. From what you say, the HDD seems to be OK. It would seem that making sure everything is connected OK would be the next step. Let us know.

Hello all,

My wife's laptop (which is running Windows XP service pack 2) recently got hit with super anti virus pro. I ran malware bytes on the computer and on restart the computer would hang on a black screen with the cursor. I restarted in safe mode and was able to get back into normal mode after I used msconfig to disable all the programs that were running on startup. After re-starting I was able to log in, in normal mode. I also used msconfig and changed the startup selection to diagnostic startup.

Now windows explorer wasn't running, so I restarted in safe mode. Windows explorer won't run now in safe mode either. I restarted one last time in safe mode with command prompt. The command prompt works and when I tried to use that to run explorer.exe it came up for a second under windows task manager and immediately closed. I'm pretty much at a loss of what to do now.

Answer:PC Won't Boot Into Windows - BSOD - No Safe Mode - No Way To Boot?

Do you have a second hard drive available? If so, installing a temporary OS and anti-virus into it, and running the original HD as a secondary HD will allow you to see if (a) the original HD is operational in the first place, and (b) be able to run that anti-virus and see if it finds something. Depending on how how your HDs are installed (IDE or SATA) will depend on how to set this up.

In an IDE system, because both drives would have an OS in them, do not use CS for your cable settings - set the new drive to MASTER (MA) and the the old drive as SLAVE (SL). In an SATA system, since this system is plug-and-play, simply leave the old drive unplugged from the SATA cable while booting up the new drive. Once up and running, plug in the cable and allow the computer to 'find' the drive. If it fails to, there's a good chance the drive is dead.

In either version, once the computer hopefully 'finds' the old drive, you have your choice on what to do at this point - first will be of course, run the anti virus. Then you could save any files that might need to be backed up. But this would be the point to see if you want to keep the original, or leave it as a second drive in the computer (a good way to keep files happy, as virus' tend to stick to the boot drive).

Mind you, if you choose to go back to the old drive as the main, if the anti virus actually found anything, you may still find the unit does not want to boot, since removing the virus may have trash... Read more

I was able to locate and delete av.exe from both computers, but have different results. My laptop seems to be working OK (maybe a bit lame), but at least I can use it.

My desktop originally seemed OK, but then I couldn't execute any software. I tried to reboot to fix the problem and things got worse. Now I can't boot my desktop - in normal mode, safe mode, any mode. It just keeps recycling between boot attempts.

Hello,I'm typing this from my laptop because my pc has become infected with some kind of nasty virus that I can't seem to get rid of. I have previously run Malawarebytes on the computer which supposedly deleted several viruses but the main problems remain. For starters, I can not boot my computer into safe mode. As soon as I try to boot safe mood (in any variant) I get BSOD with the STOP: 0x0000007b (0xF8C4E524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) It is also worth noting that I can only get windows to boot normally if a flashdrive is inserted into the USB port, otherwise it goes straight to the same BSOD. About a year ago the pc had a virtumonde trojan on it and I fear that it might still be there because the symptoms are the same. Malaware claims it deleted a virtumonde last week but nothing has changed. The computer also runs with a traditional Windows NT interface and not the standard XP interface. (The interface still however in control panel, says that it is XP.) As soon as the computer boots, I get 2 windows that state "Error Loading c:\windows\system32\ludiyofu.dll and miwajiho.dll.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 5737 with Win 7.

Hi guys, so yesterday I was changing some values in the registry and I was asked to reboot the system. It never got done, as a BSOD occured.

The BSOD error message is 0x00000074. I can't turn the system on in a safe mode as well - I get the BSOD too.

My only choice seemed to be formatting the whole thing, but when trying to boot from the CD, the message I get is:
Realtek PCIe fE Family Controller Series v1.34 (10/07/13)

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

PXE:M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.

No boot Device Found. Press any key to reboot the machine.
That makes my laptop basically useless. Is there anyway I could fix the toast?

Hello, I was getting alerts from my antivirus program, that it was blocking some trojan horse from 91.212.226.180, can't recal the exact name. But it was happening for two days, with intervals of 5-15minutes, between blocks.
I desided to look into it, and tried some malware removal software, and had to reboot, after reboot i get bsod in normal mode with the problem 0x00000024. Altho i can boot to safe mode, and do things from there. The malware removing programs have to restart after scaning, to delete threats, but on restart it automatically boots to normal mode and gets bsod again. And everything that was scheuduled for deletion stays where it was.
I would like to get some guidance from you guys, because i dont know what to do anymore.

Hello. I used to have this same setup working before I went to college. My freshman year, I let it go unused and it sat at home. I am now a sophomore and I brought it out to Arizona to set it up in my new apartment. I tried a clean install of w7. The install worked but the graphics look terrible and now I can only boot in safemode. Trying to boot up normally just gives me a blue screen and a restart. I am afraid that there is hardware damage but this has not suffered any drops of any kind so that would be surprising. If this is the case, I will replace it but I would like to narrow down the issue so I don't buy something I dont need.

Attached is an image of how bad the graphics look and then the dump files.

Thank you for your help. I am extremely frustrated and have tried many things.

Hi

As of a couple of hours ago, I am getting a blue screen every single time I boot my system. I have tried a system restore, windows startup repair (from the Windows 7 DVD) and runnning Mem Test. Memtest finds no errors, startup repair finds no errors and the system restore completed without issue but did not fix the problem.

When I try and boot into safe mode, I get to the login window, but as soon as I log in I get a blue screen with IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL, generally with no other file referenced. If I try and boot in normal mode the same thing happens and on one ocassion I also saw storport.sys mentioned on the blue screen.

Because I am unable to boot into Windows, I am unable to reinstall any drivers or remove any drivers, or do anything else to the OS.

I have been into the system BIOS and have disabled all my poeripherals (onboard audio, serial port etc.). I have physically also unplugged all USB devces apart from my keyboard and mouse, and have disconnected/removed all hard drives and DVD drives, floppy drive, audio card, second graphics card etc. In other words I've stripped the system down to the bare bones. I am still getting the same BSOD's every time I start the system.

Please can anyone help me diagnose the issue or advise on what I should do next. The issue started whilst I was browsing the web and the system crashed. Prior to that it has run perfectly for the last few weeks. No new hardware has been installed.

Normally IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL errors are due to an overheating CPU or bad memory. Or sometimes some other hardware and or driver failure. Try reseating your CPU cooler (replace the thermal paste if you can)

My video card was having problems so I used the warranty and sent my PC for repairs. They told me the card was faulty and swapped it for a new, identical one. When it got back I tried to boot into Windows, but the animation froze for a second right at the beginning and then a BSOD flashed for a tenth of a second and then it rebooted. If I try to boot into safe mode it shows me the log of the drivers being loaded, then it stops for a second at "amdkmpfd.sys" and BSOD's for a fraction of a second and reboots. I can't even read the BSOD because it flashes away almost instantly.

I searched the internet and did these steps, all to no avail:I ran startup repair
I ran sfc /scannow at the command line
I copyed the contents of Windows\system32\config to a backup folder, then copyed the contents of RegBak to it (supposedly restoring a backup of the registry). It also failed so I restored the mybackup.
I renamed amdkmpfd.sys to amdkmpfd.sys.old. I rebooted, safe mode now hangs and crashes at "classpnp.sys", renamed classpnp.sys, now it hangs at "disk.sys", did the same, now hangs at "fvevol.sys", etc...
I also did startup repair several times between these steps.

What can I do? Any suggestions? If you need more info, please ask. Thanks for any help.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, it isn't a hardware issue, because I can boot into Linux and use even the graphics card just fine. The graphics card is a AMD 7970M

Found this great forum while scouring Google for some help because I'm frankly not that familiar with Windows 7. Also, this isn't a computer that I used, so I'm not familiar with what exactly was happening, if anything, before the situation it's in now.

On Launch Startup Repair, "Windows is loading files..." OK Then when "Starting Windows" appears, BSOD:

On Safe Mode, BSOD at classpnp.sys:

On Debug Kernel, freezes on "Starting Windows"

On Windows Home Premium 64-Bit Recovery Disc (I downloaded this, I did not make it from this system, the owner never did this), Windows Setup [EMS Enabled].... "Windows is loading files..." OK, Progress bar moves a bit and then:

Have just read through your post on behalf of your friend & noted

...ran an Advanced System Care 5 scan/cleanup.


Current accepted wisdom with Win 7 is to NOT use a cleaner.

Just a FYI.

If you ever think your Registry needs to be cleaned, repaired, boosted, tuned-up, cured, tweaked, fixed, or optimized it shouldn't.

In other words, injudicious use of "Registry cleaners" CAN & DOES cause problems.

IMO - there is no reliable way for a third party program to know whether any particular key is invalid, redundant or neither.
Some registry cleaners may not know for sure whether a key is still being used by Windows or what detrimental effects removing it may have.
This has led to examples of registry cleaners causing loss of functionality and/or system instability.

Should you decide to go ahead -
Make sure you have
1.a current System Restore point created.
2.a recent "Back up" of your computer- preferably to an external HD.

I left it for the morning when I re-started it, and it started fine, for a few minutes, but after a minute or so I got the same BSOD.

This happened several months ago and I fixed it by opening up my PC and re-setting the video card. I did it again and this time it didn't help any.

I ran the diagnostics that pop up on boot up, on the hard drive and memory, and nothing turned up wrong. As previously mentioned, it will not boot up normally, but it will boot up in safe mode.

I checked all of my drivers in safe mode to look for a missing driver. All of my drivers either said that the status was fine, or that the status was unavailable in safe mode. I was missing one driver, for my ethernet connection. I went on Dell's website to look for the driver but I couldn't find one.

Computer will not boot to desktop. It just boots to a "snowy" screen. After a moment of this, it goes to a Blue Screen referencing atikmpag.sys and a problem with attempting to reset the display driver. So I tried updating to the newest Catalyst, same problem. But the laptop will boot to Safe mode just fine. So I went to safe mode, Disabled the Radeon HD 7450M, and rebooted. Same problem. So I go back into safe mode and all is well. After hundreds of Internet searches, solutions, and retries, I finally just used the F11 Factory Reset, and when setup tries to finalize and reboot, it gets to the "Setup is Preparing your computer" screen" and does the same thing. Static, BSOD, reboot. When the "Windows failed to load properly" screen comes up, I opt to boot to Safe Mode again, and when Safe Mode begins to boot, I would receive an error stating "There might be unexpected reboot during specialize to BBV1. The process will cause CTO panic because the image might not be normal."After numerous internet searches I just decided to install a copy of Windows 7. And it went swimmingly.

As mentioned in my previous thread some time ago, my computer has been prone to BSODs since I got it. I always assumed it was software-related as it never happened in safe mode. Today I was working on a word document with music in the background and the music made a grinding hanging noise like my computer was about to crash, I lost my video signal, then the song finished and my playlist stopped. Numlock stopped working so i reset the computer, now it boots up until the winds splash screen, which finishes normally but I lose my video signal right after this. If I boot in to safe mode it runs fine.

I have tried windows restore (to a point prior to a windows update I did 2 days ago), and it has run the startup repair tool with no success ('cannot automatically repair the error'). I have tried rolling back my video driver and updating to the most recent one. No change in computer's functionality. Any help at all will be appreciated, I have included the BSOD crash log info in here for what it is worth, though this particular incident was not associated with a BSOD to my knowledge.

Hi,

My Dell 8200 with Windows XP SP3 has a stop error 0x0000007E and a FLTMGR.SYS address F78512B2 error. After trying to reboot using the F8 key I can select Safe Mode but during the reboot it just gives me the BSOD mentioned above.

I got to this point, when I had another stop error 0x0000005? I can't quite remember the last byte. This occurred at somepoint during the night and the next morning the system was sitting at the BSOD. I could not boot from Safe Mode either and so I booted from my original XP install disk and selected Repair OS. Once this was done, I tried to reboot off of the HD and the 0x0000007E message with the FLTMGR.SYS message was thrown.

What do I do now? Your advice and guidance will be greatly appreciated.

I suspect that I have some sort of corruption probably due to a virus. I recently switched from Mcafee to Spyware Doctor and some viruses were found and supposedly cleaned. Things seem to be running fine for a few days and then the BOSD showed up.

Thanks, SDRob

Hi, I'm currently getting a BSOD on my Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2. I started getting problems last night after surfing youtube a bit and realized my computer was acting kind of weird. That's when i closed my browser and tried to open it again and it came up with a message that referred to my harddisk space. I don't remember what it said. But that's where the problem started and i got a Windows security Alert that was accompanied by a program called "Quick Defrag" that popped up out of nowhere. I was scared I got a virus because it was doing some kind of scan so I quickly closed the program. I was curious if it installed anything or if any program was running so I used ctrl+alt+delete to check for any fishy programs running. I saw the programs and they were named in a bunch of random letters like "GejhwySas.exe." Since I couldn't access my browser to use a free virus scanner I decided to restart my computer, and that's when i got a BSOD. I attempted to boot in safe mode and it still comes up with a BSOD, so basically i can't even boot into Windows... This is also the first time I've gotten any kind of BSOD with this computer.

Hi all,

I put my PC into sleep mode before heading out last night and upon my return I was presented with a BSOD. So I'm not actually sure if it went into sleep mode.

I'm kinda at a loss as in to what is causing my bsod. It happens after the Windows logo, but doesn't return any errors messages besides "SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED". Then it reboots.

Upon reboot I can access the Troubleshoot section and go into the advanced options. I've tried:

- Start-up repair: This shows "Attempting repairs" and then says "couldn't repair your PC". Log file I:\WINDOWS\System32\Logfiles\Srt\SrtTrail.txt. I've accessed this txt file via cmd and the only thing I can see in here is:

"Repair action: System files integrity check and repair
Result: Failed. Error code = 0x490"

- System Restore: This also fails with "System restore failed while restoring the directory from the restore point. (0x80070091) %ProgramFiles%\WindowsApps.

- Safe mode: BSOD "SYSTEM THREAD EXCEPTION NOT HANDLED". Then it reboots.

- Command Prompt: sfc /scannow returns "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation". chkdsk /f returns "Windows cannot run disk checking on this volume because it is write protected"

Any assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Answer:BSOD Can't boot to safe mode or desktop

Hi, I'll just throw in a couple of comments and leave the BSOD to the experts:

1. chkdsk on your system disk:
From an admin command prompt
[Windows key + X, click command prompt (admin)]
chkdsk C: /F
Your PC will need to restart.
Post back the result, which you can get after a restart as follows:

2. System Restore error 80070091: there is a very long thread on this (I happened to start it) with a solution in the first couple of pages. I understand that is one MS is working on.

Hi guys, so yesterday I was changing some values in the registry and I was asked to reboot the system. It never got done, as a BSOD occured.

The BSOD error message is 0x00000074. I can't turn the system on in a safe mode as well - I get the BSOD too.

My only choice seemed to be formatting the whole thing, but when trying to boot from the CD, the message I get is:
Realtek PCIe fE Family Controller Series v1.34 (10/07/13)

PXE-E61: Media test failure, check cable

PXE:M0F: Exiting PXE ROM.

No boot Device Found. Press any key to reboot the machine.
That makes my laptop basically useless. Is there anyway I could fix the toast?

Okay I am using my mom's computer because I cannot boot mine.. The other night Avira alerted me to a virus, I ran a scan, deleted the virus and restarted the computer. Upon restart I received the BSOD. I tried safe mode and it runs a bunch of commands and then stops. Nothing more. I tried going into recovery console but don't know what command to type in. It says drive C and press enter to exit recovery console. Can this machine be saved???? Please help?

Answer:Cannot boot in normal or safe mode. BSOD

It can be difficult to determine what exactly caused this problem. Bootup failure can be due to a variety of issues to include application faults, hardware failures, loose pin connections or malware. Startup failures that occur before the OS loader (Ntldr) starts could indicate missing or deleted files, or damage to the hard disk master boot record (MBR), partition table, or boot sector. If a problem occurs during startup, the system might have incompatible software or drivers, incompatible or improperly configured hardware, or corrupted registry/system files. However, the first thing to do is check all your hardware connections and ensure they are fitted properly.If you cannot bootup or logon in normal or safe mode, then your options are limited.10 things you can do when Windows XP won't bootWhat to Do When XP or 2000 Won't BootSystem Restore Rollback in XP using ERD Commander System RestoreHow to perform a Repair InstallLanga Letter: XP's No-Reformat, Nondestructive Total-Rebuild OptionHow to perform a Repair/Reinstall (with screenshots)You may be able to use a Windows XP bootable Floppy Disk to boot from a diskette instead of your hard drive.

Can someone help? This started acting up around 1:30pm (February 3rd) at school. Everything works with a Live CD (Ubuntu 8.0.4) and nicely with Safe Mode Networking and a System restore.

I tried uninstalling my drivers and updating them and it didn't help. Any other options?

Laptop specs (Inspiron 1520) :

Core 2 Duo T7200
160GB HDD 7200RPM Sata
Intel Wireless Pro a/b/g (I think it was 395 or something)
10/100Mbit NIC
8600M GT 256MB
And of course Windows XP Pro SP3

This was working fine before Tuesday and then it just decides to bug me.

HELP? Need this working for school.
