Q: Solved: Blue Screen of Death as screen saver

This is what someone else wrote in another topic:

"I booted my computer up today, and saw my background wasn't available anymore. Then I see the message, "Warning! Spyware detected on your computer! Install an antivirus or spyware remover to clean your computer". It says that Win32/Adware.Virtumonde and Win32/PrivacyRemover.M64 are on my computer."

I had the exact same problem but i followed the instructions that someone posted in that topic, these were the instructions posted by "drdrew1469":

"I just got through fixing this (I hope). What it did here was change the background and set the screensaver to the sysinternals bluescreen screensaver (which you may be seeing) while at the same time setting policies in the registry to disable the two aforementioned tabs in the Display properties window.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System \NoDispBackgroundPage and [same]\NoDispScrSvrPage (they are both set to 1. Delete both entries.

Then check HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run for any funky alphanumeric filenames (I'm pretty sure it's just a random string anyway so posting the string probably won't help you much). Delete these keys and the associated file(s). (Doesn't hurt to check msconfig either, but I found nothing there)."

I thought that it had been fixed because now the tabs are back and i can change my wallpaper and stuff. But if i don't touch my comp for long enough this "blue screen of death" screen saver pops up. All i have to do is push a key and i disappears but it's really annoying cos every time it happens it gives me a fright.

How can i get rid of this "blue screen of death" screen saver?

Hi, thanks for checking my question. I haven't found an answer to my particular situation:

Dell xps m1430 laptop w/vista (32).

It all started with a blue screen w/scrolling text after the fated restart. The blue screen text said "if this is the first time you've seen this message..." and then comp restarted, again showing the blue screen, then restarted into windows repair mode, after repair mode tried to fix the problem comp restarted, then the screen went black / blank right after the little windows loading animation (where the bar keeps moving from left to right and there's a small windows logo).
It all happened fast, so there may have been steps I forgot, but that's the jist of it.

Now screen always goes black / blank during startup after the windows loading animation, so I can't start windows in normal mode.
I can start in safe mode if I manually force shutdown by holding the power button, so I'm not imploding with fear... ok I am.

Possible causes:
1. This occured right after installing 11 vista updates (that restart was when I saw the blue screen)

2. Also occured the restart after running a patch called "Vista TCP/IP and UAC AutoPatch 6.0" I downloaded it from softpedia, the developer was listed as defcon, and their website listed was, but the site is down(I found this out after the problem occured). The patch had lots of positive reviews, and lots of people on other sites also suggest using it to re... Read more

My brother has a Sony Vaio FW21L laptop with Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit installed. Yesterday when he turned it on after the welcome screen appeared he got a blue screen of death. He says he hasn't installed any new devices or software and he ran a virus scan which revealed no problems. He tried a system restore to the day before and also entered safe mode but the problem persists.

Can anyone tell me how this can be solved?

A:Solved: Blue screen of death after welcome screen

Problems that persist in Safe Mode and after System Restore's are usually hardware ones. But I'd also try a restore to a few days further back before the problem.

If the problem remains, start by checking the memory.

In Vista you can do this by running mdsched.exe

On reboot when the scanner appears, press F1 and run the extended tests.

I don't think it will show any non Microsoft drivers, but --

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.

This might point us to a non Microsoft driver causing the error, if one exists for it.

In need of serious help.*
To begin, I am stupid and haven't backed up any of my files so for now a windows reinstall is out of the question. (unless it's completely necessary) okay, so the problem: I was using my computer as normal. Then while on Google Chrome, it started getting slow and said "not responding" this happens all the time, to everyone so I waited and then the dreaded Blue screen of death appeared. Didn't get a look at what it said because it shut down almost immediately. After that it loaded as normal? Which is weird, I think. But got stuck after startup on the black screen of death. All I have is a cursor. Can't do ctrl+alt+del, can't load any of the safe modes. When I go on startup repair, it says "no restore points" on system restore and "could not detect a problem" on system repair or whatever it's called. There must be something to fix this?! :/ I live in hope that the whole system doesn't need to be wiped clean because as I said, I stupidly haven"t backed up my files.*

Can anyone help?? Please?

A:Stuck on black screen of death, after blue screen of death

this sounds like it should be a BSOD thread, post a seperate thread in the BSOD section following the posting instructions for BSODs, make sure you include the dump files, if you don't know how to do that, it should tell you in the BSOD posting instructions.

I am currently helping someone with an older eMachine T3616 running Vista basic. It only has 512MB of RAM.

The machine was displaying BSOD and then went black. I tried running a Kaspersky Rescue disk but kept getting an error saying that the data is corrupt. I burned a new and updated version and was still getting the same error and the Kaspersky disk wasn't completing scans.

I then removed the HDD, connected it to another PC via a USB to IDE cable and scanned and removed some infections using Avast, re-installed the HDD and can now at least access windows advanced boot options.

I ran HDD test with UBCD and Seatools and all tests passed. I ran memory tests as well, including using the AVG rescue disk and all tests passed, no errors. At one point I was able to get all the way to the Windows desktop before getting a bsod. I have even tried Windows repair tool several times but keep getting the message that Startup Repair could not detect a problem. In the details, however, it does say that "a recent driver installation or upgrade may be preventing the system from starting".

I tried a system restore but apparently no restore points have ever been set. In the system recovery option table I chose command prompt and attempted to do a sfc /scannow with the message "Windows Resource Protection could not perform the requested operation".

I also get differing STOP errors each time I try and boot into Windows.

My fiancee' and I have 2 PC's that are down in our home. Both taken by the blue screen of death. My PC unfortunately will not reboot at all now. Just sits on a black screen. His however will and I was able to disable the auto restart and snap a few shots. I was just wondering If I could get some input. We seem to be getting more than 1 different BSOD message. He swapped out RAM which gave us one message then put the old RAM back in and now we get a whole new message. Either way I am not having any luck figuring out why this is all happening and thought it would be best to try and see if I could fix it myself before paying The Geek Squad or buying a whole new PC. We dont really use our PC's for much other then web email, surfing and World of Warcraft. We are still able to boot up in safe mode but that is about it. We have also done a complete system recovery on the machine with no luck and replaced the hard drive.

Specs on his machine are:
200GB Hard Drive
Intel Pentium D, Dual Core
ATI radeon xpress 200 (original) Graphics card was upgraded when the PC was 1st purchased. (2 years ago)

Before the issues occured we had not upgraded any hardware or software in either PC in well over a year. They both just crashed with the BSOD on different occasions, mine was while playing WoW.

I'm attaching pics of the screens. Any help is very much appreciated.

What you need to do is narrow down the issue to when it first started and with what piece of hardware. You can always start by removing what you've added and step by step determine through reinstalling it which one or two are the culprits. Is it possible with your new memory there might be an issue? suggest the video card might be the problem and it makes me wonder if that's at the point you started seeing these issues?

I have a Dell 4700 and running Windows XP. Have encountered the BSOD every once in a while over the years with this computer but really not too big a deal. Recently though its become frequent. After I auto-cleaned the registry it became even worse. It then started happening almost every time I booted the computer....usually while surfing the net or running a program like a utility (but not a game). The computer would also freeze sometimes with the cursor stuck on the right hand side or the computer would reboot automatically without warning.

I went back to an earlier restore point and updated the video card drivers and some other drivers (abut not the Windows XP drivers - I can't locate the install disk). The computer became more stable for this past week. Then this weekend more BSODs (but no freezes or reboots). It last happened after running Lightroom. Some of the BSODs messages would mention Pool Header or srv.sys or other things. Usually something different every time.

Tried to run memtest86 today and the computer froze 23% in.

Let me know what other info can post here.

I wonder what's wrong with my PC NOW.

Is this Blue **** of Death, or what... It started happening like few weeks ago I guess (maybe even since I bough my computer), but I didn't worry about it because I had some problems with my graphic card, and I thought after I fix that this will fix too. But after I replaced the card, it still keeps happening.

When it happens:

When I'm a) Changing PC profile password, right after I press "Yes, make private" (always), b) When I update video drivers, right after PC restarts from safe mode (most of the time), c) When I'm listening to music (sometimes). That's all I got.

What happens:

When, for example I change my password, blue screen appears with lots of letters on the screen, but I can't read it because the screen stays there for only <1 second, and then PC restarts.

A:[SOLVED] blue screen of death

Hi rick737 !

The drive you replaced is your system drive right ? The second blue screen appeared while reinstalling XP ?

Is this happening on the rig that shows in your profile (Asus A8N-SLI, AMD 4600+, ...) ?

Had you already installed SP3 on that computer ? If not and if you have the automatic updates on SP3 could have been installed when you turned the computer off.

Insert the original drive, boot on the XP CD, press 'R' to access the recovery console at the first installation screen and once at the c:\windows\ prompt type disable intelppm. Tell us if it helps.

Check this information from Microsoft :
You receive a ?Stop 0x0000007E? error message after you upgrade to Windows XP Service Pack 2 or Service Pack 3 on a non-Intel-processor-based computer

Check other possible causes of Stop 0x7E error messages here and see if one applies to your situation :

If the above didn't help then report your temps and voltages from the BIOS, open the case and clean the dust and test your ram with memtest86+.

Not sure where to put this but a quick search suggests most such messages go in the corresponding OS forum, so here goes

Acer 2930 running Vista HP

I logged on, was browsing with Firefox when suddenly the screen went blue and I got the message Dumping physical memory to disk.

Then the machine started to reboot and I opted for safe mode. All seemed well, I restarted in normal mode and everything appears to be OK. As far as I can tell, no recently saved data has been lost.

Can I forget this or is it an indication of likely problems in the near future? If so what? What should I do?

At very least I will back up recent stuff to external disk, but if there is any more specific advice I would be very grateful.

In case it's important, I run AVG (free) and use windows own firewall.

I was running some virus scans and next thing I know I have to reboot because of the blue screen that says DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. My comp has been acting really weird like my startup items don't startup and I did some scans with Ewdio and it found a bunch of stuff and got rid of them. But then today this happened.
Please look at my log if you aren't busy. I have my own business and it revolves around this computer and I really need this fixed to eliminate some stress.
Thank you sooo much.

I have been getting a blue screen of death with some regularity. Computer shows blue screen then shuts down and reboots. I have downloaded the bluescreen viewer. I have also updated drivers from my video card and have removed both my video card and sticks of ram, given them a clean and put them back in.

Operating System Window 7 64-bit
Processor: Intel Core i5-3550
RAM: 2 x Corsair Vengeance 4GB
Video Card: nvidia GeForce GTX 560 ti

My PC has blue screened 4 times over the last 3 days. Each bug check string from the is different. This will be rather lengthy, but I can list all of the results from the blue screen viewer.

How common is Windows failing to start?

Recently my portable PC (I hesitate to call an 12#er a "notebook") failed to start Windows 2000. I had had a failed 2.5" HD replaced within the past 30 days so carried right back to the repair guy, I will plug him; Vics Computer Repair in Houston.

The drive was OK, no virus, no data lost, he just removed what was left of the OS and re-installed it.

Now to my question, except for a brief use of the short lived IBM OS I have used Microsoft since DOS was a baby and this is the first time it just would not start. I have heard of the B.S.O.D. and thought it was pretty funny, especially if it was a skydivers AAD computer! Have I just been lucky? Has my luck run out?


A:Solved: Blue Screen of Death

so what, exactly, is the problem? Does it boot? Does it give you the bsod? If it does, chances are there is giong to be an error code at the top, something along the lines of ntkrnl_not_found or unmountable_boot_volume, something like that. Then, further down the page, it will have a readout in hex (0c0000003x(ex0000fe etc etc etc); what is that first read out part?

Windows 7, 64 bit, 8 Mb ram & 500 Gb HD. Computer will not load. Eventually it will partially load to BSOD. I have tried everything that I know to do to try & break this rhythm and load to safe mode. I have tried repair, load safe mode with command prompt & all the other safe mode options. I have recovery discs that will not boot up system when boot sequence is CD first. You may say that I have run out of options and am scuppered. I need some help, please.

A:Solved: Blue Screen of Death

Some reasons for Blue Screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
The first thing I'd do is to remove the Ram sticks and test one at a time, using different slots and see if the pc will start.
And then run a Memtest.
Scroll down to 'Download (Pre-built & ISOs)'
'Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)'

Download the ISO file - then burn the ISO to a Cd.
Start the Pc using the Cd and run the memory test overnight or for at least 8 passes.

It is best to run a full scan on individual Ram sticks if you can.
Or run the test but if any errors are shown - then remove all sticks of Ram and test each Ram stick one at a time.

That BSOD is associated with Symantec Norton - which is probably installed in your computer.

According to the Norton Community, you're not the only person who has had that problem.

Personally, I would uninstall it and then run the Norton Removal Tool to get rid of its leftover debris.

There are better and less problematic and more user-friendly antivirus programs out there.

Hi, I'm trying to fix a toshiba laptop that freezes consistently after the computer being on for about 4-6 minutes. I read everything I thought and I checked the temperature with fanspeed and I tried to chkdsk and defragment and check for registry errors, but it never finishes because it freezes. After at least a dozen times of restarting and having it freeze again, it finally showed the BSoD. After I restarted it again, it was normal again (i.e. freezing up again). A while later I had the same thing happen with the BSoD. I figured it must be a bad hard drive and so I got a new one and popped it in, but when I was trying to install xp, it went to the BSod after less than ten minutes. I guess I'm asking for any ideas as to what could be wrong with the laptop. It was running vista and is around a year old. Any help would be great

it will either be your hard drive or ram.can you access the bios?(tap F2 or DEL) cant remember which could also try swapping the ram,you have eliminated the video card(unless you have 2 faulty ones)if its not the ram it'll be the hard drive.

Using another PC. Have XP Professional Dell XPS Gen 3. Intel Pentium 4. 4GB Ram.I was playing a game of solitare and suddenly went to blue screen. I tried to restart several times. It bluescreens before you can even get to the screen to select the user. Went to safemode but wasn't sure what to look for The only thing new softwarewise was an update from Adobe and one from Microsoft. No new hardware at all. I used a disc from Dell to run a a check and all was OK except memory. I have 4 memory slots I took memory out of slots 3&4 and reran tests. Memory checked good then. I then took out the two chips that were good and mounted one of the other pair in slot#1. That chip checked OK. I then removed the good chip from slot #1 and placed the last chip in slot #1 by process of elimination I new that chip as bad but I ran the test on it anyway. It did test Bad. I then mounted a good pair of chips in slots 1 & 2. I left the odd chip out. Still no good. Can't bbt to safemode even. Not even sure of what I would be looking for if I got there. Stop Code on Blue screen of death is 0X00000050(0XC3D0117C, 0X00000000, 0X80579C4C, 0X00000000) I tried to do an overwrite of XP Pro using the disc provided with computer and it crashes to bluescreen if it does not hang-up midway in install. I am now lost big time. I can't print log or any other way to give any body a clue as to what is going on. Will not even boot to safemode now.

A:[SOLVED] Blue Screen of Death

Hi cigarman -

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - XP Support!

There should be memory dump files left behind by each BSOD. If you can get them and send them to me, I'll take a look to see if a more definitive cause can be determined for your system crashes.

The memory dump files should be located in c:\windows\minidump\ - the dump files will be named similar to "Mini040608-01.dmp". Get them all - regardless of the number.

I will also need a Belarc Advisor report saved in "mht" or "html" (web page) format (after running Belarc it will bring the report up in an Internet Explorer screen - go to the top right of the IE screen; Page; Saved as; save as mht) or as a Word document. You can download Belarc HERE.

Then zip up the memory dump files and the Belarc report and send them to me via the email address that I have provided to you in my PM. When sending the email, be sure to place your screen name in the subject area and a link to this thread in the body.

Please be patient as I have hundreds of other memory dumps to process. Should you have any questions regarding the aforementioned, please POST again or send me a PM.

Regards. . .

Everytime I turn on Skype, everything seems to be fine. However, after some time when I start a call, a blue screen comes up with the following:


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


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

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

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

HI tech guys,

My computer has the blue screen of death... it reboots all the time with the blue screen, but after i reformatted it like 6 times and reinstalled windows, now it ONLY restarts whenver i reboot the computer... ive run the memory test you guys gave me, and showed no errors at all... im told it might be a hardware issue with my harddrive, do you think this is possible? and how can i verify?

things ive ALREADY done:
- reformat
- run anti-virus's back and forth - no virus's.... anymore atleast
- run memory test - came out clean
- deleted the partitioned hard drives... its a 640gb harddrive partitioned into two through default setup...I deleted them both and made one big harddrive... something weird and maybe important about this issue is that my computer label says 640GB total... but my harddrive spavce now only says 596gb.... it never indicates more than 596 while reinstalling windows even though its supposed to be 640GB....
Please tell me how i can figure out whats wrong with it, THANK YOU!

Hey guys,

Can you please help me figure out what's wrong with my laptop ??

Its a AMD based Compaq, Win XP SP3 installed...

I get the BSOD lately, every few days or so, and it doesn't appear to be linked to a specific software, can't tie it to something.

I can tell you that in the window of time since I first got this error (about 3 weeks ago) i did a few windows updates, bought myself an ipod so i installed all the (un)necessary things with it -iTunes, QuickTime, etc. and upgraded to a new version of Firefox (3.0.3)

I also use RMClock to control voltage on the processor but i've been using that for almost a year now and haven't got any problems with it.

I've run memtest on this computer for 3-4 hours but it yielded 0 errors. I've also did an advanced scan for errors on hard drive, also error-checking from Windows, but can't find the culprit.

I am attaching a print-screen of the event viewer from one of the times it showed me the BSOD and also the 4 minidump files in the Minidump Folder...I have no idea how to read/interpret those.

Your assistance will be highly appreciated !! Thank you very much for your time !

Hi -

The bugcheck = 0x8e = a kernel-mode app was trying to do its job and something interfered with it - so the app threw out an exception. In this case, the exception = 0xc0000005 = memory access violation.

This may be presumptuous of me, but I do believe the product in RED is the most likely candidate as the cause of your BSODs.

I've tried system restore to an earlier date but that hasn't solved anything. Sometimes windows won't even launch and it goes to start-up repair menu. That works fine and then Windows launches only to have the BSOD pop up.

Hi, I've never posted on these forums but I am hoping someone can help. I bought a Dell Laptop and have, seemingly at random, gotten the Blue Screen when I start up my computer. I cannot find any pattern for this happening. I have gotten this screen almost as soon as I bought the computer. It sometimes reboots without a problem, but most times, I have to try Windows's System Restore and other troubleshooting tools several times before it reboots again. Sometimes this process can take me a couple of hours.
I decided to reformat my computer, and after a few days the same problem occurs. The computer works fine when on, but I am now afraid to turn it off since I might get the Blue Screen again and I don't know if I'll be able to reboot it successfully again (or lose all my data otherwise).
On reading previous threads, I saw that similar problems were more easily solved if the minidump files were provided, so I am attaching them hoping they will provide more insight. Thanks for your help!!

I've uploaded 5 minidump files for anyone in the know to look at. (This seems to be the way the problem is diagnosed from other threads and forums I've looked at.)

The crash seems to occur most when I am using any application that might access my sound card, so iTunes, or when I'm video editing or converting audio files. For this reason I believe it is something to do with my sound card. While you are reading this I will be opening my computer up and removing the sound card to see if it makes a difference. I thought I'd post on here also just in case it was something serious I need to get sorted quickly.

I woke up this morning at 3:30am to my PC making the sounds when it restarts. I got up to check it(I leave it on most nights so it shouldnt have been doing anything) and found out it was continously restarting itself after getting to the blue screen that says this:


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

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

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check
with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing videoadapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need
to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F* to select Advanced startup options, and then
select safe mode.

A:[SOLVED] Windows Blue Screen Of Death!

i have been searching the microsoft site for you and this is what i got...


This issue might occur if a system thread generates an exception that the error handler does not catch. This exception can be caused by any of the following:

* If this issue occurs after the first restart during Windows Setup or after Setup is complete, the computer might not have sufficient hard disk space to run Windows XP.
* The computer BIOS might be incompatible with Windows XP, or it might have to be updated.
* The video adapter drivers might be incompatible with Windows XP.
* A device driver or a system service might be damaged.
* If the issue is associated with the Win32k.sys file, it might be caused by a third-party remote control program.

so maybe your graphic card newest driver update is not working correctly. go to nvidia site and select the older version.

IF you want to search the site for the error explaination. go to google and put in "0x0000007E" and you'll find many information.

For the quote i gave you. more info, go to and it tells you all about the error you gets.

Hope you get it sorted. i would say most likely the graphic card new version problem. when i get the BSOD i always uninstall the driver then install the last known working version.

While attempting a system restore on a desktop running Vista (x64 version) the system apparently froze when attempting to "restore registry". Eventually the system ended up reaching the blue screen of death with the following:

At this point, it doesn't matter what I attempt, I've tried the "start windows normally" option, the "launch startup repair (recommended)" option, neither loads windows. I've tried booting with safe mode, doesn't work.

Since this is a Gateway desktop having the issue, it of course didn't come with a Vista recovery disc. So I downloaded the recovery disc files from the internet, and put them on a USB thumb drive instead of burning them to a cd/dvd. And yes I made the flash drive bootable.

So I startup the Gateway desktop, go into Boot Settings and choose the USB option.

Install Vista screen pops up, I choose the "repair your computer" option.

The System Recovery Options window pops up showing "Operating System", "Partition Size", "Location", with nothing listed under those categories. At the bottom of the window are two buttons "Load Drivers" and "Next".

I hit "Next"

At this point the screen with Startup Repair, System Restore, and other options pops up. I choose Startup Repair.

I found this on the internet somewhere, might be useful:
1. Re-start the computer, pressing the F8 (Windows Recovery Console &#8211; No need for DVDs)

2. Select "Repair Your Computer" from the screen. Click Next.

3. Select a language then click next. (Windows will now search for installed operating systems. Select it and click Next.

4. In the System Recovery Option box thingy, click Command Prompt

5. Type Bootrec /RebuildBcd and press enter

6. If Bootrec.exe runs successfully, you will see the installation path of the Windows directory. To add the entry to the BCD store, type yes. A confirmation message appears that indicates the entry was added successfully.

7. If Bootrec.exe does not find any missing Windows installations, you must remove the BCD store, and then you must re-create it .Do this by typing the following commands.
Bcdedit /export C:\BCD_Backup - press ENTER

ren c:\boot\bcd bcd.old - ENTER

Bootrec /rebuildbcd - ENTER

8. Restart the computer and see if that helps. If not, you may need to reinstall Windows. You can install Windows from using a proper Windows disk (not downloaded off torrents) and then select 'Upgrade', So your documents and settings and programs dont get deleted (I think selecting upgrade will keep your stuff, if not, then you will need to reinstall Windows cleanly)

I have been getting blue screen errors randomly on my laptop (You can see the specs of the laptop here

The error messages encountered:




It happens very randomly, but at least once or twice daily and it's kind of annoying. Vista reboots the blue screen too quickly for me to jot down the bug checks but if it helps, I attached a zip folder of my NTO file and minidumps.

Anyone know how to solve this matter? Thanks.

Edit: I took my laptop once to Acer service center to have a look. They ran tests and said my Memory Ram, HDD and hardware are all okay and did not encounter the blue screens. Kinda makes me mad because they did not even bother to check the error logs or anything.

Hi. . .

I picked up 40 dump files and msinfo32. I'll run them later today or tomorrow.

In the interim, run the driver verifier as it may provide additional information in future dump files. Bring up an Elevated command prompt -
START | type cmd.exe | right-click on cmd.exe uptop under programs | Run as Administrator | type verifier & hit enter - the Verifier screen will appear | do the following:


1. Select 2nd option - Create custom settings (for code developers)
2. Select 2nd option - Select individual settings from a full list.
3. Check the boxes? Special Pool
? Pool Tracking
? Force IRQL checking4. Select last option - Select driver names from a list
5. Click on the Provider heading - sorts list by Provider
6. Check ALL boxes where Microsoft is not the Provider
7. Click on Finish
8. Re-boot

Hey guys,

I've got a Sony Vaio here running Windows XP Pro. What I know about it is that it has 1GB of RAM, a 60GB HDD, and a 1.8GHz Centrino processor. This computer BSDs on me consistently before it can even boot to the login screen. Here is the error message I'm getting:

STOP: c0000221 {Bad Image Checksum}
The image oleaut32.dll is possibly corrupt. The header checksum does not match the computed checksum.

When I used ye olde Google to try and find the solution, I found this:

Microsoft doesn't even claim to know the cause. How pathetic is that? Not that they are great about "solving problems," but c'mon... Anyway, would anyone happen to know what's going on? I don't know how to get into the computer to replace the oleaut32.dll file, so that's a no-go. Any help would be very much appreciated.


EDIT: F3 isn't taking me to the BIOS either... I thought that was what Sony Vaios used as their key?

Hi there, I have a brand new Samsung NP-RC530-S05 Windows7 x64 laptop with only few days of life but it starts already all kinds of problems. It frequently locks up for minutes. Now it takes minutes for Windows to stand up until I can open folders or run files. As if it was a netbook from the XXth century. Recently more and more times crashes with Internet Explorer 9 - which results in a total lock-up of the system, not even CTRL-Alt-Del works. Then I wait some minutes and resolves alone, regains functionality, but suddenly, a few seconds later breaks out in BSOD. This was also achieved once already with Microsoft Word. Actually, Internet Explorer has many problems: many times does not copy links or text, or when doing rightclick: open in new tab it just hangs with the empty screen etc. This is such a great and strong laptop so it is a shame that I had so much app crash and BSOD in just a few days. Can you guys help me where to start looking? Eventviewer did not tell much yet.

Sounds like you managed to purchase a dud. You'll want to get it exchanged for a replacement. Any OEM system that is purchased that is immediately displaying instability problems is evidence of a defective item that simply needs a replacement. Unless you have added any devices to it since you purchased it, there's next to no other explanation.

Hi. . .

A STOP error or bugcheck of 0x0000000A indicates that a Microsoft Windows or a kernel-mode driver accessed paged memory when it should not have.

What were the four parameters following the 0xa? Was there a driver name listed such as abc1234.sys?

When I start up windows, it randomly shuts down and goes to the bsod. Here is some of the error report:

BCCode: 1000008e
BCP1: C0000005
BCP2: 821570F6
BCP3: 9AE46AF8
BCP4: 00000000
OS Version: 6_0_6000

I have the latest version of bios for my mobo.

System specs:

system memory: 3072 mb
720gb hard drive
Intel core 2 quad processor at 2.4 ghz

Model: m9150f HP Pavilion Elite

The blue screen of death seems to happen at random times, although it just started happening.

The only thing i have changed recently is installed java development kit, but that has already been uninstalled as i thought that was the problem. Even with the uninstall, I still get the bsod.

EDIT: I also have an Nvidia 8800GT which runs really hot, but i have a fan blowing on it to cool it.

Maybe its the card that is faulty?

I've been having some troubles with my computer as of yesterday. At startup, the computer goes to the BSOD, and after, it keeps restarting itself and showing the BSOD again in a loop. I've tried starting it in Safe Mode, starting Windows normally, and the last known good configuration. I've tried startup repair. I'm not able to get on it at all (I'm on my desktop right now)

The BSOD says:

Stop:0x00000050 (0x8a600000, 0x00000000, 0x81083843, 0x00000002)

Vista was originally installed on the system
Yes, pre-installed
The laptop's almost three years old, never any new hardware
Never have reinstalled the OS
Processor, T5250, 1.50, 2MB, Core Merom, M0
Dell battery: Type: WW116, Rating: 11.1V, capacity 56Wh

I'm very sorry, but I'm not sure where to find the motherboard or video card specs. But I know that we've never installed a new video card - it's just the one that came with the computer. If you're able to tell me where I could get that info, I'd be happy to get it to you.

I'm not very experienced with computers, as you might be able to tell. But if you are able to help, I'd VERY greatly appreciate it.

Thank you so much,
