windows xp crash blue screen of death data recovery

Question: windows xp crash blue screen of death data recovery

I have encountered a serious problem accessing my hard drive and booting up Windows XP. I am running windows XP on a Dell 8400 dimension workstation. I am getting the infamous blue screen of death with the error message 0x0000007B. I suspect that I am a victim of a virus . As suggested I ran a repair from a Windows CD recovery disk and it seemed to run okay and indicated that everything was fine however when I rebooted I still received the same old blue screen. . Help Mode is of no help as the options all lead me back to the blue screen. Therefore I tried something different.I booted up from the Windows Recovery CD and when prompted hit the letter R on the first screen which placed me into a C:\windows prompt. From there I was able to go to the root directory and I was able to list the folders that have my data in them. However when I attempted to open these folders I received an error message of "Access is denied" and could go no further. I checked the attributes on these directories and they are only showing an attribute of d=directory. I tried different things with the attrib command to see if I could get around the access problem but to no avail.I ran a chkdsk /p and it came back indicating that there were no problems. I am running out of options and am quickly reaching the point where I am considering doing a complete reinstall of windows, however I don't want to lose my data. Can anyone suggest how I might be able to access my data files and skirt around that "access is denied" message? Thank you

Preferred Solution: windows xp crash blue screen of death data recovery

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 (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have been having problems with a particular program suite, Ham Radio Deluve v5 build 2494 crashing the computer to the blue screen. I am not really sure what the data on the blue screen means or where (or if) it is archived anywhere on my machine.

My biggest problem is to figure out why the computer repeatedly crashes on this program... It worked fine on 32 bit Vista Ultimate on the same computer.

Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

At times you may need to intentionally force a Blue Screen of Death and initiate a system crash in Windows for some testing purposes. The default Stop error you see could be MANUALLY_INITIATED_CRASH.
This MSDN link will show you how you can force a system crash using a keyboard. You need to create a CrashOnCtrlScroll registry setting for that. StartBlueScreen is a free tool from Nirsoft that allows you to crash the Windows operating system by initiating a Blue Screen of Death according to 5 parameters that you specify from command-line. It loads a very small device driver named NirSoftBlueScreenDriver.sys that calls the crash API function of Windows Kernel (KeBugCheckEx).

Hi all,

I have an xp service pack 2, and just recently when I boot my computer I recieve the message
Windows XP could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: \WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\CONFIG\SYSTEM .

I know how to fix this problem due to other threads. That's why I went to system repair with the xp setup CD.

I followed the steps of putting the CD in, pressing r for repair. But when the time comes to select the type of installation (enter the number) I press number 1, and then I press enter to proceed.

But when I press enter, the blue screen of death appears, and the problem is not fixed.

pleae help, it's my dad's computer and if he finds out he'll be angry at me.

Answer:Blue Screen of death Crash help!

Hello kevinbro,

Our main source of info- dumps, are missing. No dumps are in the Minidump folder, and no BSODs recorded in Event Viewer.

Make sure to configure your window as such:

Attachment 101026

I checked for potential software causes. I see many Application Errors in WER that use the network, such as Internet Explorer, MSN Messenger, Panda Security, and Chrome.

I found some old Intel Wireless drivers, dated March 2009. Please install these ones:

Remove Avast with this tool:

Remove Panda with this tool:

Install Microsoft Security Essentials instead.

You may keep Malwarebytes.

Update your Creative Camera drivers, as they are dated 03/05/2009.

Complete those steps, including the crash settings, and complete the BSOD Posting Instructions again, if you get more BSODs.

Good luck!

Well, there are a couple of topics here about this particular BSOD but every situation is different so I'll explain mine and update with progress in case it helps anyone else or if anyone else has advice on the best approach to take.

The system has been stable for some time but today while working in Excel I got an IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL 0A BSOD, rebooted and within 5 minutes got SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION 3B BSOD and now getting this repeatedly.

My best guess right now is that a stick of RAM has failed so have removed all but one 2GB stick and no crashes so far - will run some memory tests on each stick in turn tomorrow. I really hope that's all it is (& I can get it replaced under warranty!) and it's not a mobo fault. The BIOS did go into recovery mode when I tried to enter it, that's okay now but the raid 5 array is re-initialising as a result . The auto memory timings have never matched the spd (slower) but that never bothered me but I think I'll manually set to the stated timings of 4-4-4-12 depending on what the tests reveal.

Only real SW change apart from usual MS updates is I installed VMC TV Pack and USB wifi adapter a few days ago but I'd have expected to see this sooner if that was the cause. From what I've read a 3B is more likely hardware anyway?

So, any advice would be appreciated and a link to a memtest iso would be great - I'm busy backing up what data I can right now.

Okay so my computer is only about.. idunno.. six months old? Well I dropped it a while back (2-3 weeks), it spent some time in the repair shop, and came back at pretty much factory reset. I had installed The Sims 2 and a few expansion packs, so I wasn't worried about losing files. As long as I can re-install and connect to the internet, I'm fine.
Apparently my computer was the one that the store takes out of the box and puts on display, as the Norton Anti-Virus and Microsoft Software trials were already expired. Again, no problem for me, but I read somewhere that Norton can sometimes interfere with other antiviruses like McAfee.
I tried to re-install my Sims games, and kept getting BSOD. I tried to get my Google Chrome back, BSOD. I left my computer on for more than 45 minutes, BSOD.
Anyway, the computer came back from repair and had about four programs installed on it; Lightscribe (useless to me), CA Antivirus, Tune-up Utilities, and Adobe Air (which for some reason I hadn't installed).
So, after reading about the antivirus conflictions, I decided to uninstall everything but Adobe Air.
I re-installed my games.
Then cleaned up registry.
Then attempted to download Google Chrome (my browser of choice.) After a few tries, I went back to Facebook to complain to all my buddies, but I got the BSOD once again and my computer restarted itself.

I was currently trying to boot into safe mode so I could do disk cleanup and a defrag (both done through a batch file .cmd extension (i made it myself). I also was attempting to boot into safe mode so I could give my newly wiped hard drive a good scan for any infected objects (spyware/viruses/malware). The problem is that it kept pausing when I tried it the first time at agp.sys by pressing f8. It wouldn't load so I turned the computer off and tried again and continued to that for 3 times and decided that I should try another way, so I boot it in regular mode and i go into msconfig and select the safeboot. I restart my computer and wait for a while for the monitor to change to the safe mode thing for my ATI card. Finally it finishes after going to another room for 5 minutes. Then I attempted to do the diskcleanup and while it was doing the disk cleanup for my usb drive the blue screen came up and showed this code: 0x000000f4 (0x00000003, 0x863c1020, 0x863c1194, 0x0604450). So I restart and try to get back to the safe mode and then i get another blue screen that shows the code: 0x000000ed (0x8675fcb0, 0xc0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000).

First off, in regards to the perfmon:



cause: A device is disabled preventing it from working properly.

details: The device, Photosmart Prem C410 series, is disabled. If this device is no longer used it may be intentionally disabled. The Plug and Play ID for this device is ROOT\MULTIFUNCTION\0000.

3. If you do not use the device it can be left disabled.

Onto the dumps:

All of the attached DMP files are all of the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL (a) bugcheck.


A kernel-mode driver or process attempted to access a protected memory location it does not have permission for, or a kernel interrupt request level (IRQL) attempted to access a memory address that is too high.

This bugcheck usually occurs when a driver uses an incorrect memory address. Other possible causes of this error include: bug in a device driver, system service, the BIOS, an old Anti-virus program or backup tool, or possibly memory issues.

It's not often that one can tell hardware vs software with only 1 memory dump.Also, with the newer OS's (such as W8/10) the line between hardware and software becomes a bit blurred.We'll have a look, and then we'll give some suggestions on how to proceed. The PSU is a bit under-powered - and if it's older and a non-name brand, that might be a cause of some of your problems.The test for this is to remove as much power-consuming stuff as you can (CD/DVD drive, W-D HDD, fans, extra plug in cards and USB devices, lights, etc)If the errors come less frequently, then power problems may be contributing to it. Your UEFI/BIOS (version P11-B1) dates from 20141.  Please check at the manufacturer's website to see if there are any UEFI/BIOS updates available for your system.  If you are able to install the update through Windows (without booting from an external drive), then go ahead and update it.  WARNING - if the computer might shut down during this procedure, please don't do it, as this may physically damage the computer and prevent it from booting.Although you appear to have a reasonable number of Windows Update hotfixes for this version of your OS, please double check for any new Windows Updates.  It only takes one update to cause a problem, so it's essential that you have all of them.  The actual number is not important.  Rather it's important that you checked manually, installed any available updates, and didn't experience any errors when ch...

Answer:Vista crash dump blue screen of death

The time element does suggest overheating -- have you monitored for that?

Were there problems before you opened the case for cleaning?

I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder. *this assumes 'c' is your boot drive, if it is not, subsitute accordingly
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.
If you do not see any minidumps, be sure you are not using any cache cleaner such as CCleaner. Also run sysdm.cpl and select Advanced > Startup and Recovery. Make sure "small memory dump" is the one chosen under "write debugging information" and the location should be %systemroot%\minidump

Since almost all bugchecks can be caused by faulty ram, I would recommend you perform memory tests.

On Vista you can run mdsched.exe and once rebooted to the scanner press F1 for Advanced options and run the "extended" tests.

However, when I went to move my mouse I found that it was completely frozen. I powered down completely and when I tried to bring it back up I got absolutely nothing, no startup screen, no visual anything on the monitor. The green light was on showing power to the tower (instead of Tower of Power - music reference for you youngins) but nothing on the monitor. I thought that maybe the monitor blew out so I hooked up a spare that said "No signal available." This went on for several times and could not get anything. Could not even get to boot to safe made or anythign, even with recovery disk in. Let it sit for awhile and later it came on briefly and went off again so I shut it down last night.

Answer:Total system crash into "blue screen of death"

maybe CPU is overheating? ........ it's on many days in a row. Could it be as simple as that?It is not a "CPU over-heating" problem, nor is the problem due to leaving the computer on for long periods of time.You are faced with a hardware problem. The symptoms point to a failing PSU (power supply unit) ... at least that's where I would start. The PSU on an OEM computer such as this one is perhaps the "weakest link in the chain".The only effective way to "test" whether the PSU is actually the problem is to replace it with a known good working unit, capable of supplying the system's requirements comfortably, and see whether the problem persists or is resolved. In many cases, PSU failure is a gradual process, starting with intermittent "problems", but inevitably leads to "total failure" to start/run the system.

Your files being in the WINNT folder usually means the copy of XP was installed over a windows 2000 instalation.

If the copy of XP for you laptop is the same version as the one for your desktop (Home, Professional, etc.) you can use that. If it is not the same version, find one that is. Once you find the right disk go into the recovery console and then type the following commands exactly as they are shown.

Hey everyone,

Yesterday my girlfriend's computer crashed. All of a sudden the blue screen of death came up giving the old "beginning physical memory dump" message. She shut the computer off, and when she turned it back on nothing would open. I restarted it again for her and got a message from microsoft saying the computer had just recovered from a serious error.
the message contained the following:

I have Vista. after the driver upgrades and everything the comp restarted and all of a sudden my broadcom wireless adapter wasnt working. so i did some investigating and found that broadcom and hp/compaq suck when it comes to wireless adapters this problem has happened to lots. anyways. i went through some trouble shooting and followed the advice of a few peoples threads i have read else where. I ended up dong a system recovery to the point just before i upgraded my drivers. it worked broadcom is recognized again. so i decided to do the upgrade again minus the wireless adapter. unfortunetly one of the threads advised to remove the battery from the laptop and perhaps windows will recognize the adapter. i forgot to put the battery pack back in. i had to go to the living room where the wireless router is to plug strait into the router. because i was not in the office i had to unplug a lamp to plug in my laptop. i left to get some dinner and when i returned i found my vomp off and unplugged and the lamp on. my wife had done this so she could read. she unplugged my computer mid upgrade and now everytime i try to start windows i get the blue screen of death telling me to remove any hardware i have recently installed. so i figure it got pretty screwed up being that it lost power. there are few things i care about on my computer and unfortunetly i have not backed them up any where.

Answer:help! system recovery isnt working blue screen of death does


What model HP PC do you have?

is this Vista RTM or Vista with SP1?

As one of the common drivers to miss out and does cause some issues is the Chipset driver, so did you install this?

Also in device manager do you have any yellow ! marks and if so by what device?

What is the code of the BSOD and in full please as it can reference the issue and fix?

Do you have another PC available as I may have an option that could allow you to backup that PCs HD or at least some of the folders?

Dell Inspiron 1721; Vista; Service Pack 1 regularly updated; AMD Athlon 64X2 Dual Core Processor, 1.9 GHz; 3 GB RAM; 250 GB HDD with 137 GB free space. Using AVG paid subscription with current updates; SuperAntiSpyware paid subscription with current updates; SpywareBlaster, also updated regularly; and Ad-Aware Plus, also updated. SuperAntiSpyware found a trojan last week (Trojan.Dropper/Gen), but said it fixed it.

It has been fine until yesterday - except that the playback on sound and video that are on the HDD or online have been hanging up for some reason that I haven't figured out; and there's a notice popping up every day or so that the network controller has stopped working, but Windows can't fix it - - but then it always starts up again right away. I think I may need a new driver, but haven't been able to find one for it.

It has seemed a bit slower the past couple of days, but that's the only other sign of trouble before the crash. The only thing different is that I installed iTunes and Quicktime day before yesterday and then uninstalled iTunes last night. Nothing else has changed recently.

Yesterday, as music was playing, the computer hung up and began beeping loudly with the music skipping sort of like a bad CD would - - but the music was on the HDD not a CD. Then the blue screen - - and that hung up - - and I had to turn off the unit manually. It was a kernel data inpage error, whatever that means. Since then, the machine seems a bit off it&...

Hi guys, just popped by to say haello as I may be posting lots soon. I will try not to rave but moving to Apple or Linux is getting more and more attractive day by day. Microsoft and Windows of whichever variant sucks!Suffice to say that I cannot log on to my PC as the administrator I once was, I have to use my partners or daughters log on. As soon as I enter my log in details, PC answers. shows my wallpaper screen and shuts down. Though I can find my files, I cannot access them from either account and if I try to open them from my family members accounts, same shut down. I will expand on this as much as I can later.I gave up and tried to load from our Advent 3319 Recovery CD. Recovery screen loads and says "press R" to view recovery options but does not respond to command.Finally, for now?, does anyone know if it is possible to totally erase HDD and reinstall vendors XP as the OEM? Online stuff says I cannot for example use partitioning software because of the way this PC is configured - however, I am sure I have come across one website which suggests that F-Disk can be used in certain circumstances

Ok, so, when my pc gets to where the Windows loadup screen should be, a blue screen with information on it shows up. The problem is it flashes only once for a millisecond and then my pc reboots by itself. So I cant see what it is trying to tell me! Ive tried the pause button, but either it won't pause, or I'm just too darn slow to cacth that blue screen.
Even more frustrating is that this happenes randomly. Sometimes when I cold boot, it starts normally, goes through the loadup screen and I'm in Windows, other times it takes more than 3 tries before it Windows loads!
(It happenes with both cold/warm boots btw).
Ok, the reason I think it is hardware is - get this guys, you gonna love it - It only happenes when I have more than 1 gig ram installed...

My basic specs are as follows :
Intel P4 3 ghz hyperthreading cpu (socket 478)
Chaintech A865PE Motherboard
2 Gb Ram (4X512MB Dual Channeled
Channel A has 2 precisely the same chips
and channel B has two precisely the same chips)
6800 Ultra(256 mb)
120 Gb Sata(I think its Sata1?) HD
500 Watt Power supply.

I dont think you need the rest of the specs, those are probably the most important. Now I have tried numerous things, but is having only 1 Gb ram the answer?
Please guys, I would love to hear/try any ideas you might have!

Answer:Blue Screen of Death flashes before the Windows Loadup Screen Starts, then PC reboots

Could be a faulty RAM stick, try taking out one at a time and restarting your pc to see if you get the error.

Hello everyone.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L450D-13X computer for the kids, and for the price it's a good laptop. Have had no issues with it until two weeks ago when the screen froze for the boys whilst playing a game and downloading a program from the net. Had to do a force shutdown and since then we have a BSoD on every boot-up. This is what we have tried:

On 'Starting Windows' we are given an option of either 'Launch Startup Repair' which ends up as BSoD or 'Start Windows Normally' which reverts back to the 'Starting Windows' option list.
Any attempt to enter 'Safe Mode' results in BSoD.
Attempting to boot an ISO of the Windows Recovery Disk on a USB key (we did highlight it and promote it to the top) results in BSoD. Borrowing a proper Window 7 installation DVD and highlighting this as an option results in BSoD.

In fact, the only option we used that threw up something different was using advanced boot options. On one of these options we got the Blue Screen of Death with the following information:

Disable Bios Memory Options such as caching/shadowing

Tech info

Stop: 0x000000ED (0xFFFFFA80023C2CDO 0xFFFFFFFFC0000185 0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000000)

I don't mind erasing the hard drive and starting again, there's nothing on it that's critical. I'd very, very much appreciate a steer on this. Checked the web for stuff and nothing seems to assist in any other options. I am not particularly tech literate but can follow instruc... Read more

This morning wilse i was shutting down a automatic windows update installed it self.
After I came back from work I tried turning the computer when it tried loading Windows
(the rolling loading bar) It came to the blue screen and came up with a error code which vairies every time the computer reboots

When the computer restarted it came you with about that windows failed to load.
And you get a selection on what to boot the computer in such as Safemode(with network, With command promt) last known working settings and normaly. each of theses leads to a crash, safe mode dosnt even come up with the blue screen and just restarts.

I tried using the windows restore console from the cd but when I did select it. It said that it could not find any harddrives.
Wilse bios does find both my harddrives.
Thanks you for any help given hope to read from ya soon.

Windows is shutting down to prevent damage to my computer. with a countdown at the bottom saving discs for crash data, and physical memory.

this has happened various times. First time was while listening to itunes and opening a word document. Another time was when I was updating Java. Then after that it didn't like starting anymore. It would sometimes freeze while in the startup process.

The wonderful yet disgusting BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH DEStRUCTION AND MAYHAM fell in love with us. Every time I started the computer it would come up. The odd thing is it would come up with different reasons for shutting down in this way. Would always have the countdown on the bottom obviously haha.

I finally got the computer to stay on long enough to get a hijackthis log to help figure out what is going on.

This might point us to a 3rd party driver causing the error, if one exists for it.

Well, my friend ran my computer on safe mode, and then when we turned it back on, it gave us the message below. We think it failed because we copyed alot of files from cds. I did some research into it and after installing or copying large amounts files, your not supposed to run it in safe mode for a certain amount of time.

I need urgent help with my new "Lenovo ThinkPad X140e" laptop. The OS is "Windows 7 Professional". Recently, my laptop crashed and I received the "Blue Screen of Death" when I attempted to start. Launching in "Safe Mode" also failed. I attempted to repair Windows 7, but this also failed. As a final attempt, I attempted to "Restore" my laptop. This worked, and was able to successfully access my Desktop. However, all of the "System" Files / Applications appear to be missing. Additionally, the MS/Office 2010 Professional I purchased does not launch. When I "Restart" in "Safe Mode", all of the missing files/applications show up, but I am unable to launch.
I don't know what actually happened, but I would like to fix the issues. Part of the issue may be Corrupted "User Account", but I am not certain. Please Help...

Like I found out, MS has stopped it's update service of xp (i had xp pro X64 edition) annyway because of this updates to java or net framework, browsers HTML5 etc etc are all going to surpass what XP has (services were cancelled for this product completely in April 2015)I had serious issues with the Steam platform, it actually BSOD'd eery time the program tried to update then on the 3rd restart attemp it would update normally, this is all due to XP being all but obsolete nowhad to happen sometime, my advice is to switch to another OS, I reccomend win 7, as it is by all accounts better than win 8 or 8.1, and you would be eligible for a free win 10 updateyou can check the syntax of BSOD error with the "blue sreen viewer" edited by Oggmeista

The point at which the blue screens occurs varies, It happens while playing games, typing in word, watching a movie etc..

I got a PC in the mail last year to be home-schooled with the K-12 homeschooling program. About a week ago, the PC computer got stuck in a startup loop. The black Windows "loading" screen and the blue HP screen looped back and forth, until I got that "Windows did not shut down properly" message that gives you options. I chose to do Safe Mode With Networking, but the Windows wouldn't start "normally" until I did :

Control Panel>System>Advanced>System Failure>Settings and then unchecked "Automatic Restart".

Which worked, almost. It didn't loop anymore, but I got a BSOD!!! And when I did, here's some of the info I got:

The STOP: 0x0000007E message and "kdcom.dll". There's no disk available and we can't buy one at the moment. I can't buy those "Remove Spyware" programs either. I have things like SUPERAntiSpyware, Malwarebytes, DLLSuite, and RegistryEasy (all free versions).

I think I have a Vundo Trojan or something. I tried to do a System Restore with RegistryEasy, but even THAT didn't work! This wouldn't bother me too much if the Safe Mode had volume, that's what's really frustrating me.

But since I have no disk and no money--well, this is hopeless, isn't it? And how do I remove the information and stuff when I finally send it back?

Thank you.

Hi Guys,

I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop which is repeatedly giving me a blue screen of death. Error Code is as follows:

STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x86CF8978, 0x86CF8AEC, 0x805C77CC)

I have not installed any new hardware or software. Although my AVG virus software has recently expired. Computer start up is normal until I start to access an application (can be any application) and then the blue screen appears.

The error message is always the same but it does not point to a particular file.

I have tried rebooting in safe mood which works fine and I have used a chkdsk command to make sure the hard disk was ok.

Any suggestions would be very welcome.

Answer:Blue screen of death hp windows 7

Good morning BSOD can be either hardware or sofware related. In my experience its is a slow process of elimination.In my experience, various things have worked for me; Start by running Memtest stress stest on your RAM. Run a HDD diagnostic tool to confirm your HDD is in good health.Try booting into Safe mode to see if the problem persist. If Safe mode works, see if you have restore points active and restore the PC back to a earlier state when it worked. Due to the fact that you might have a rogue or corrupted update which have downloaded and installed itself on your PC.Lastly, you might have to check for malware or viruses. Once again, scan your PC in Safe mode and lets see if it helps. Good luck Gideon

Welcome, salar1976, let's see what we can do for you.

It looks like you are having some problems with drivers behaving like they should.

The first things I would try doing is running "chkdsk /R" in a command prompt, getting a copy of Memtest86+ at Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool and running that for 5-10 passes, as well as updating all of your drivers [this includes video, lan, wireless, chipset, sound] to their latest stable versions from their respective web sites [not your computer manufacturer's web site].

Let me know how things go for you.

Answer:Blue screen of death Windows 8

Your screen shots indicate faulty memory so have you looked to see what memory is installed in your laptop? Access is usually via a panel on the back. Open it up and see if you have one or two memory modules installed. If you have two then try taking one of them out and see if the blue screen persists, if so then take it out and try with the other one.

Hey guys, I got a problem.
My Windows shows XP's Blue screen of death whenever i try to run halo 1.

This problem was there with me 1 month ago. That time whenever i tried to run Freedom Fighter, the game would run for a few minutes and then showed the blue screen of death.So, What i did was, I always minimized the game after playing it for 2-3 minutes, refresh it and then maximize it. It was successfull.

But i thaught that there is some problem that the computer is showing the blue screen, so i formmated it.

Everything was well , I installed NFS Underground 2 , there was no problem with it. then i installed halo 1 and played it, completed 2-3 levels,no problem, but now it is showing the blue screen. NFS 2 is working fine. Everything is fine except when i run halo 1.

Dunno what to do.

My opinion is that there is no problem with the game. but you judge it yourself.

here are my PC specifications :

First post here so forgive me if my computer lingo is not up to par!

Anyway, i have a compaq nw8440 with windows xp. Its a mobile workstation.

I was on it the other day when i got a blue screen of death (BSOD). I can not read any codes off of the screen because one second the screen appears and immediately after it dissappears and the computer restarts itself.

Upon restarting the computer works this way...I can log in and and as soon as my desktop starts to appear the BSOD appears and the loop continues.

Ive Tried starting the comp in safe mode normally and in command prompt and tried running system restore from both locations. The problem with my system restore is that when i select a restore point and proceed to the last screen...hitting the next button does nothing??????

yeah its weird my "next" button is broken. The "back" button and "cancel" button work.

I have made sure that the administartor has the appropriate access or privelages so that he is able to do a system restore.

I don't know if this information will help but as of yesterday (Jan 2) when i was trying to do the system restore, the computer had made system restore checkpoints for dates all the way up until jan 31 of 2009.

I hope someone can help me out here. Thanks a bunch

btw im not posting from the bugged comp

Hi. I have a Dell Inspiron N5110 with Windows 10 on it. I have not added anything new or done anything differently lately. I turned it on and the blue screen comes up and says " Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We'll restart for you." If you'd like to know more about this you can search online for the error UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

Okay I did try searching this..but find only stuff for XP and 7 or 8, also any fixes I find say to either go to a menu (which I can not do) or to insert a disc (which I do not have). After this the screen just comes up black and I can not go to any menus or anything. Please help!!! :cry

Answer:Blue Screen of 10.. HELP

Windows error messages have not changed much including 7 and 8 to 10 so don't discount what you found. That error tells me it's a hard drive issue of some sort. Run chkdsk to see if the drive has errors. Oh, and you had better back it up.

So I'm having my first run in with the BSOD and am completely stumped. The blue screen appears every time I log into my account and a few times when I log into it on safe mode (which I'm in now). I've been doing some reading on it and it has something to do with my drivers needing to be updated. The error is:

The issue is I haven't installed any new hardware on my comp that would require me to have to update drivers and when I go to my device manager and to update my drivers, they're all up to date. Can someone please help (this is the worse possible timing. FINALS WEEK)

I tried restoring my laptop to a previous state, but a good 15 minutes later the screen appeared once more. Downloaded and used a registry cleaner as well, but to no avail.

Dear Tech Support,

I think my computer has serious problems. I don't know what is wrong with it because it is very fast and works very good. But something it just crashes out of the blue and gives me BSOD. Mostly the BSOD is Memory Management or IRQL not less or equal. I have tried several things; I have cleared my computer with CCleaner and virusscanners, after that I reinstalled Windows 7 - 32 bit. But it still gives some errors, so I was wondering if you can help me please?

I have followed your BSOD Posting Instructions. The OS on this computer is Windows 7 (32 bit), before I had Windows Vista as standard OS on it. The computer is approximately 4 years old, with "Intel (R) Core? 2 Quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40GHz 2.40 GHz" processor and 3 GB RAM Memory. I also have the output folder and perfmon file attachted to this thread.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Blue screen of death Windows 7 - 32 bit


From what I can see, Avast is causing the problem. Uninstall it, and replace it with MSE:

Also, install updated Realtek Ethernet drivers, as your current ones are dated February 2009.

Link: Realtek

Finally, run some hardware tests.

Run Memtest86 overnight: RAM - Test with Memtest86+ - Windows 7 Forums

Run the "Blend" and "Small FFTs" Prime95 tests: CPU - Stress Test with Prime95 - Windows 7 Forums

Windows 10 has never been as reliable as Win & since I installed it for free - you know the Microsoft push! But now getting to be a right pain - can't reliably do anything. Shuts down usually but not exclusively when I'm on Google Chrome or Facebook. Seems to have got worse since the last major update? Any thoughts?


Probably the quickest way to sort it is to clean reinstall Win 10 using the Media Creation Tool or the WinOSO download tool. Win 100 is, in my opinion, more stable than previous versions. I run 10 machines and have had no problems since updating in July/Aug 2015.

I'm also getting the same problem as the thread owner -- random BSODs.
I tried to use minimal harware components (removed my graphics card and one stick of RAM) to narrow down the problem but still in vain.

Here are my specs right now just after another BSOD:
? Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
? x86
? System is 4-5 years old
? Freshly installed OS (about 3 days but got BSODs the same day OS is installed)
? Intel(R) Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.00GHz
? Standard VGA Graphics Adapter (because I removed my graphics card)
? ASRock 775i65G
? GeniePower Switching Power Supply: ATX 500W

Attached is the compressed folder as per jcgriff2's BSOD posting instructions.

I hope you can help us to solve this problem.

Thanks in advance!

Answer:Windows 7 Blue Screen of Death

Hi TSF people,

I have just installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate for my desktop. I can log on to my PC and use it but I'm getting frequent BSODs occuring randomly, mostly containing MEMORY_MANAGEMENT or IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL messages.

I have tried to minimize the hardware of my system yesterday (removed my video card and one of my RAM sticks), hoping to narrow down the problem, but I still get BSODs so I put them back again on my system.

I attempted to read the contents of the dump files created by the system after it crashes, trying to at least know what's causing the BSODs but I'm having trouble on using the correct symbols. That's why I thought someone might want to help me to analyze my dump files and point my nose to the right direction.

Attached is the compressed file as per jcgriff2's BSOD posting instructions.

Here is a pinch of my system info:

? Microsoft Windows 7 Ultimate (32-bit)
? x86
? System is 3-4 years old
? Installed OS less than a week ago (January 30, 2010)
? Intel Pentium 4 531, 3000 MHz (15 x 200)
? NVIDIA GeForce FX 5500 (128 MB)
? ASRock 775i65G
? GeniePower Switching Power Supply ATX 500W

I hope you could help me with these guys. Thanks in advance!

Please help! I am really scared. My computer had a blue screen of death and when I started it up again, it returned a blue screen that asked for my choice of language. After that, there is a "choose an option" screen. Here is the problem though: There is only the "Troubleshoot" option and the "Turn off your PC" option. When I click troubleshoot, the options are "system restore", "system image recovery", "startup repair", "command prompt" and "Go back to previous build". I have tried all of the options and none of them are working. The only one that could possibly work is "command prompt" but I have no idea how to use it. Sorry this is so long, but I am not experiencing the typical blue screen with all the available options for repair. Maybe show me how to use the "command prompt" option. Thanks.

0x00000024 this code shows up on a blue screen from Windows XP. It will not boot up at all and I can't pull up a command prompt to run CHKDSK at all. My wife talked to a tech guy earlier today and wanted to charge $99 to fix it he believes it was the AVG Antivirus I used for the laptop that is causing it and looking at the messages it seems it is the AVG Antivirus causing it. Is there any way to remove this Antivirus software off the laptop? Thank you to anyone who knows how to solve this.

I have a Dell laptop latitude and have the blue screen of death as I have found on the web it is called. I can't seem to find the error by searching on the web that I have on my computer.

I have the following error:

STOP: 0x0000007e (0xc00000005, 0x805d2018, 0xf9e513e4, 0xf9e510e0)

I read where a lot of the errors say something after but mine does not.

I joined to post this question and started reading all the things you guys have about it and still cannot find any info on my problem. I have followed links to a few different sites like the aumha site and micosoft's site and still can't find anything on what my LT is doing exactly.

Every time I start my computer it just goes to the blue screen. Even if I try to start in safe mode or anything like that.

If this helps I did fall asleep and left it on one night so it's possible that if could have overheated? I don't know.

Thanks to any help in advance!!

Answer:Windows XP blue screen of death

A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues.

* Do you have a friend with some system/tech knowledge? If so, take your harddrive out, slave it into his/her system and let them run a harddrive diagnostics on it as well as security scans.

* We're checking for both disk integrity as well as for infections.
