Prior Blue Screen, Startup Screen (cont restarting) - Vista

Q: Prior Blue Screen, Startup Screen (cont restarting) - Vista

Hi there,

I have been stuck with the above issue for the last couple of days and would appreciate some help asap. In reflecting on the above the comp. is at the point where it is continuously restarting. I was able to insert the installation/required disk it was asking me for earlier and was able to open up to a screen resembling safe-mode. However, I can no longer do this on my own or through "start-up repair".

If it is helpful, in reading the start-up repair screen and seeing, "windows cannot repair the comp. automatically" as well as looking throughthe "problem details" I see recall seeing possible registry errors such as, "rollback registry"

If this can not be fixed or is not a quick fix I am also open to the idea of reseting/reformatting the hard drive but only if I can recover some files using open-source software such as recuva or the like.

Appreciate the help

Hello I am in need of some Help My Vista compuyter Keeps Restarting with a Blue Screen constantly now.

I have made logs for an expert to look at it.

Please if anyone can guide me in how to repair my computer step by step would be great. I ran basic tests on my computer and all were passed. I think this was due to a virus or malware that I found on my computer and had a little trouble removing it., I think I finally got rid of it but maybe I'm dealing with its side affects? Help Please.

Hi all. We're having an issue on my sister's laptop. This has happened before, but I could fix either by system restore or another method I don't remember. This time I press F8 to get the option: Repair Windows, but on clicking on System Restore afterwards, nothing happens. It won't let me get into the process at all.

I captured a screenshot of the blue screen. I apologize for not being able to follow your steps for making a certain file log, because even when on Safe Mode, the blue screen appears and I can't get into Windows.

I'd appreciate your help.
Thank you.

I'm fairly certain that problem information means your system hard drive has failed.
If the PC is still under warranty, contact the manufacturer.

If no longer under warranty, you will have to have a new hard drive installed at your own expense.
Hopefully you've got all your files already backed up and some means of re-installing Windows on to the new drive.

I've had this computer for less than a month, and this already happens. Funny how the world works. I'm running Windows 7, 64 bit.Mod Edit: Link to Win 7 thread, http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic406194.html ~ Hamluis.About a week ago, I had a problem with the ci.dll file (which a lot of people seem to be having lately). However, by booting up and telling my computer to ignore the drivers that were not properly functioning, I was able to get onto my computer. Once there, I used a program (Semantec, I believe) to detect the root of the problem and get rid of it (appeared to be some sort of Trojan)...everything was running fine after that for about a week until this occurred. So I start Norton Anti-Virus for a full scan yesterday, and it gets about 3/4 of the way through before the laptop shuts down on its own. I figure maybe it finished earlier than I thought, so I attempt to boot up, and as it tries to start Windows, I get the wonderful blue screen.Information on the blue screen reads:"Stop 0x0000007B (0XFFFFF880009A97E8, 0xFFFFFFFFC000000D, 0x0000000000000000, 0x0000000000000000)"When I attempt to do Statrup Repair, the information reads:"Root Cause Found: Unknown Bugcheck: Bugcheck 109Parameters= 0xa3a039d89ece68c8, 0xb3b7465ef14ca28a, 0xfffff80000bba5e0, 0x1)Repair Action: System Files Integrity Check & RepairFailed, Error Code= 0x490"Windows 7 came preinstalled on the laptop, which means I have no reinstall discPlease help!

A:Prior to fix blue screen problem emerged again

That error 0x4E PFN_LIST_Corrupt is almost always caused by faulty RAM; in fact it is probably the strongest and best indicator that bad memory is the issue. Under our forum Guides and Tutorials you will find one the explains how one runs Memtest on memory.

The thing is the guide is kind of old but serviceable. Here is an up-to-date link: http://www.memtest.org/

1. Download in ISO file and save to your desktop.
2. Double click the file and burn to a CD.
3. Go into your BIOS and place your DVD/CD drive as First Bootable.
4. Place disk in said drive and restart your system.
5. The test will begin before Windows can load which is what you want.
6. This test takes a long time. Many people will start it before going to bed and let it run overnight and check it in the morning. Don't worry because this will not harm your system in any way.
7. The more PASSES the better with 10 as a minimum unless errors show up sooner. Also, people think the test is just repeating itself but this is not true.
8. ANY error, even one, means you have a bad RAM and must be replaced. It cannot be fixed.
9' If you do have errors then run the test per stick, I.e. only one installed on your motherboard. This how you can discover which one(s) needs replacement.
10. Keep in mind that if your memory was purchased as a pair manufactures will require you send the set back as a whole even if one of your sticks is good.

Hi,

I own an HP Mini (exact model escapes me at the moment) with XP Home Edition installed and upon reaching the XP load screen - a blue screen flashes up and vanishes equally quickly as Windows re-starts.

This lead me to the " We apologize for the inconvenience" screen with a nice selection of choices, ranging from: Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompts, Last Known Good Config, and Start Windows Normally.
Obviously, none of these work and the cycle repeats.

I read of other similar cases with the same blue screen, and I followed their lead by pressing F8 repeatedly (in exasperation) until I got to the Windows Advanced Option Menu. At this point, I chose "Disable automatic restart on system failure".

This halted the instant re-start once getting to the blue screen, and gave me time to see 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 screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration, and check for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

I turned my laptop on unsuspectingly this morning and was greeted by a beautiful blue screen, much to my dismay. I've noticed a lot of similar problems to mine on this forum, but not the same.

My laptop is a Dell Inspiron 1525
Windows Vista Home Premium SP1 32bit
Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU T5800 @ 2.00GHz
4 GB RAM
300 GB SATA HDD

I managed to start in safe mode with networking to post this message, so I guess that means my system (minus all the stuff I've installed) is okay, right?
In the other threads it said to disable the auto restart and take a photo of the blue screen error, I can't transfer the image 'cause I'm in safe mode so bluetooth is disabled. The message read as follows:

STOP:c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The Session Manager failed to create protected prefixes system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc000003a (0x00000000 0x00000000).
The system has been shut down.

Hi. I'm forced to use an HP Vista for the time being and I've encountered a blue screen on start up. This is a very old computer, maybe 5-6 years?

For the past few weeks it has been running perfectly, and running games and whatnot well. Last night I stupidly decided to update the numerous Windows Updates that have been available for months. I'm completely against doing this on any computer, and this seems to be why. Anyway, I updated them all and now I have a blue screen on start up.

Specs:

HP
m8100e
AMD Anthlon 64x2Dual Core Processor 5200+ 2.61 GHZ
4gb ram
32 bit


This is the error code:

0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x00000000, 0x8c767374, 0x8c767070)

I CAN run in safe mode.

I DO NOT have a system recovery disk to utilize the start up repair.

I CANNOT boot in the last known configuration because when I try to select that in the boot up menu, it still gives a blue screen.

I had another blue screen when I started using this computer again 2 months ago when I updated my video card drivers, but I reverted back and that was solved. It seems this computer is so old it cannot handle the new updates for anything?

How do I go about solving this? I'm not sure exactly what to do when I'm in safe mode. Is a full system restore in order? If it is, I do not have any disks or anything available to do that. I only have my desktop product code.

Any help is beyond appreciated.

All these types of crashes can happen independently of what I'm doing, It has happened while burning dvds with Nero, scanning with anti-virus, browsing the net, or even while I'm asleep and only the bittorrent client is up. Though, there is one peculiarity I think should be important, there's one program, the VirtualDubMod 1.5.10.2 (build 2540/release), which is used for various kinds of video manipulating jobs, that every time I'm enconding a video with it, there is a crash, and I'm convinced it's not only coincidence, cause I have tried a...

Hey guys,

Tried to start my computer this morning and, after passing through the windows loading screen, it went to a blank, black screen with just the cursor. Was looking around at what the problem may be, and found a solution. Ctrl+Alt+Del worked, clicked on file, added the "explorer" process, and everything was back to normal, functioning well. Turned it off again, and now it doesn't even get to the windows loading screen, it just goes plain black. I can get into BIOS. But i don't know of anything i could do. Seriously weird, and thinking it could be some form of corruption/virus. I have Symantec, but i usually don't take any notice of it, however, lately, threats were popping up every few minutes. Almost certain that this is directly related.

Thanks heaps!

A:Blank Screen after startup - Lots of Symantic warnings prior to occurance

My guess is that it is some program that starts as you bootup that is causing you problems. Reboot the PC, after the BIOS memory counting screen, repeatedly press F8 and you will come to a screen that offers starting in Safe Mode. Choose Safe Mode and when you're into Windows, run msconfig and see what programs are starting up upon boot. Disable those and see what happens.

I have a desktop computer with Vista installed that I only use to play the Sims 1 (I know it sounds lame, but bear with me here).

Admittedly, I recently shut down my computer incorrectly (was so tired I just turned off the power strip it was plugged into), and ever since I have been stuck in this blue screen on startup loop. I can start in Safe Mode without encountering the blue screen, but that's about it.

I've tried Googling this problem, but none of the common solutions are working.
So, before you reply to this thread:

1. Yes, I have attempted a system restore. It cannot complete the system restore and it gives me an error message along the lines of "cyclic redundancy check error". I checked/repaired the disc with the command prompt, but still get the same error when trying a system restore.

2. Yes, I have attempted to use Startup Repair with my OS disc. Startup Repair either tells me it cannot solve the problem, or it tells me there is no problem.

3. "Last Known Good Configuration" on startup results in the same blue screen.

I am hoping someone has a new solution for me to try, because on most forums I have seen where people have the same problem... people just reply with "UM HAVE YOU TRIED A SYSTEM RESTORE????". Like, you think I haven't tried that?!

I am not sure if this blue screen is the result of my lazy shut down, or if that just happens to be a coincidence in timing.
Please do not suggest that I should just backup my data and... Read more

Hi,

Yesterday I was watching a TV show streaming through a site that I have never had problems with. However as I was watching my internet froze and my computer shutdown I believe due to a virus from this site. Ever since then I cannot log into my computer (unless I do so through safe mode). The blue screen comes up and the technical problem at the bottom says:

STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x86D0C867, 0x803997CC, 0x803994C8)

I've tried to reset my computer back a couple days and this hasn't worked. I've also tried CCleaner, SuperAntiSpyware, and Malwarebytes Antimalware to find a problem. I've deleted a bunch of stuff but nothing seems to make the blue screen go away. I've also researched the 0x0000007E version of the blue screen but can't find the solution to my specific problem!! Please any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

According to your dump file your issue is with the Nvidia driver nvlddmkn.sys.

1. Download Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper (both have free versions; make sure the version will work with your OS) to your desktop screen and install.

2. Download the latest diver(s) for your video card but don't install them.

3. Uninstall your video card drivers and reboot your PC into Safe Mode. Run Driver Cleaner Pro or Driver Sweeper but ONLY for the video card drivers. I had someone use it on their chipset drivers! If it doesn't find any video card drivers that is quite okay.

4. Reboot and install new video card drivers.

Hello I recently used my computer this morning and it was working fine. I just then got home from school today and it was blue-screening on startup...I tried switching the RAM sticks into the different slots (there being only 2, I reversed them). That didn't work and I am confused on what to do now.

System specs:
AMD athlon 2 X4 quad core processor @ 2.8ghz
asus m4a78lt-m le motherboard
xfx ati radeon hd 4890 1gb graphics card
western digital 500GB caviar black hard drive
windows vista 64 bit home basic
corsair 850W PSU
OCZ gold edition 4GB ddr3 RAM.

I am in a hurry to go to an important family event so I cannot really add any more information here, if anything else is needed please reply and tell me ASAP, as I am in dire need of a computer now since I have to catch up on projects for school.

Only thing I know about the blue screen is this:
Technical Information
STIO: 0X0000007B (0XFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0XFFFFFA60020729CA, 0XFFFFFA6000.....FFFFA600198BE6C0)

Those may not be the 100% correct characters in the screen, but as soon as I get back I will post the picture of the blue screen I took with my digital camera.

i'm sorry but i've had it. so here is what happens:
1. first you should know i had to take my pc to the shop, bought a new hdd and reinstalled windows xp service pack 3
2. I press the power button, windows start loading, sometimes a blue screen appears and if you wait long enough a welcome screen and that's it. Sometimes is goes past the welcome screen, it loads normally and freezes after half an hour. I took it to the shop and it worked fine there. Brought it back home, still blue screen etc. It start normally if i unplug the monitor. Sometimes, if i plug it back in, the monitor start normally, other times it just stays black. i'll give you any information needed, but it will take a while since i don't have the heart to restart my pc this many times. i think in the last two days i've restarted it like 50 times, no kiddin'.

Hi all,

Starting yesterday my computer would go through startup... while loading the desktop it would crash to blue screen with white text (unfortunately, I can't remember the exact error message). If restarted, it either goes to a blank black screen or back to blue, and I could only get the computer to operate in safe mode with networking. My antivirus software (avast free, malwarebytes)scanned and found no infections.

I have Windows 7, Samsung laptop.

Today, I was able to start the computer normally and am functioning with internet (still acting a little funny), but I am sure something is still not right. I also did a system restore last night, with the same problems (crashing, not starting up).

Any assistance would be highly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,

Brit

Hello.

Just today, I turned on my computer and got the blue screen of death, so I restarted my PC. Then a black screen came up saying "Windows could not start beacuse the following file is missing or corrupt : \windows\system32\config\system."

You can attempt to repair this file by putting the winxp cd in etc...

Now when i turn on my computer there is just a black screen showing, with nothing at all on it.

Any ideas anyone?

Thanks very much for your help.

It's a nasty error that requires some persistance and resourcefullness to overcome without a clean install.

If you have a Windows CD or have the recovery console installed, you might want to have a go at these directions.

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 securevista.net, 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

So I've hit this issue where I am welcomed with a black screen which is supposed to be my login screen. It boots up, but what would look like the login screen is simply black. When moving the mouse, the cursor would emerge whilst changing from pointing to loading(cursor animations). The wifi icon from the lock screen seems to flicker sometimes but that's pretty much it, nothing could be done from my end.
I've tried resetting/restoring from the advanced boot options(triggered by constantly interrupting the bootup process) but it's telling me it cannot be done since the location of the OS is not "unlocked". Safe mode with networking/command prompt gives me the same result. Unfortunately, I do not have a system restore point nor a system image to use. The command prompt from within the repair does not let me use sfc /scannow, too.

Brief history of what happened beforehand:
I installed the Uxtheme patcher to enable third-party themes, then before rebooting installed an application called StartIsBack. After rebooting, it seemed fine and I changed my mind and decided to uninstall StartIsBack. It turns out the aforementioned program brings a cavalry of bloatware before you could uninstall it. After I got rid of the extra software it came with, I proceeded to delete each part of StartIsBack from its respective directories, but it wouldn't let me delete its core StartIsBack64.dll, because it is running in the background. There is no sign of it as well within the task manag... Read more

Hi all,

I was called to fix my aunt's PC the other day and what i came across was something i couldnt figure out what had caused the problem.

The machine does the usual, POST etc, does all its checks and then goes to boot from the HDD(HDD is indicated in BIOS etc). At this very stage (just before the WinXP splash Screen) the Screen (LCD) just goes black and does not ever recover. There is no error messages and the HDD LED blinks a couple more times then does nothing. LCD power light stays on green. I have to either turn it off via power button or do a restart with Ctrl,Alt + Del.

I have disconnected all peripherals except Video Card, HDD and still no luck. The only reason why i left the Video Card was that there is no onboard video and i had no other Video cards to replace it. I cant even boot into safe mode.

I manage to resolve the problem by doing a WinXP repair over the top but what i really want to know is, was it a corrupt/damaged MBR that was causing this problem or was it a corrupt driver? I have read a few articles about nVidia cards giving black screens but none seem to be similiar to mine.

Also since the install over the top, the problem has not re-occurred (however it has only been 1 day since).

PC Specs are below:

P4 3.2ghz
Albatron 845PE Pro II m/board
nVidia FX 5600XT VGA card
120GB IDE Seagate HDD
Firewire Card
Unsure of Sound Card

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Regards

Steve

Sounds more like a corrupt video driver to me.

My screens go black at that stage, as the drivers load.

Later drivers seem to leave them "black" a lot longer in the boot process.

I was able to transfer the hard drive to another HP laptop I have and it started fine and installed the drivers for it on startup...

The problem happened yesterday after gaming for a while, restarted the computer and BSOD came up after the black windows starting screen. I could get in with safe mode but only for a few moments before the computer just automatically shut off, like someone just pulled the power to it...

I checked with BlueScreenView on this computer and saw bug check string SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION bug check code 0x0000003b which according to microsoft is "linked to excessive paged pool usage and may occur due to user-mode graphics drivers crossing over and passing bad data to the kernel code."

If someone could look at the files and hopefully some ideas how to fix it, would be great thanks

No access to task manager through ctrl+alt+del.

I was thinking it's a video card problem until i plugged in an external monitor and saw a windows error box pop up saying that the program running requires that you not be on battery power.

Pulled the drive and scanned with avast and malwarebytes which found nothing.

Inserted Vista DVD but the repair function is only able to find the HP Restore partition and is unable to locate any backups.

Hi everyone. I'm having trouble with my Acer laptop. This is what happened. I recieved an automatic update for IE9. I tryed it out, I did not like the new settings. So, I tryed to delete it, it said that I do not have permission to do that. So I did a System Restore to go back to IE8 and it looked like it was doing it's thing. Then it went into the Blue Error Screen. I turned my laptop off and then back on after a minute or so. Everything looked ok, all the intros still come on but "Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit (Full Version) Login Screen or Welcome Screen" does not load at all. Just stays on a blank black screen with the mouse arrow. I tried using the F8 options on the laptop but they have not done anything so far. SafeMode does not work and apparently there are no Restore Points anymore. No Backups either. Command Prompt still works. I did a scan and it said there is nothing wrong but there is. Should I get the full version of Windows Vista Install Disk and use the Repair option from there? You know where the disk has options like Install, Uninstall, Repair? I'm not talking about a Recovery Disk with the same F8 options as my laptop.

A:blue screen that keeps restarting my computer, how do I fix it ?

This is usually caused by bad hardware or driver. Boot off of the XP CD, Delete the Windows Partition, Create a new Partition, Format the drive NTFS, install Windows. If it still fails then you have a bad piece of hardware. Remove one stick of RAM and test it that way, pull that stick replace it with other stick etc. Remove all cards, floppy, CD drives etc until you get a successful bootup, then slowly add each device until it fails, then you will know that is the bad piece.

Hi,

For the past few days now a blue screen has been popping up out of no where and it lasts only for a few seconds and then it restarts my computer. I barely get to read what it says but I did catch that I need to probably uninstall any new programs that I may have installed?? Along with that my internet has been acting funny as well. It will go out - however the modem lights would be flashing normal and my connection would say "connected" - not sure if there is a connection with the blue screen?

I am not very computer savvy... I have no idea what is going on.... I did have MS Essentials security on the computer but then removed it to try another program:

Malwarebytes (have since removed)
AVG Security (currently have)

Not sure if it was a coincidence but once I made those changes the blue screen started happning. I removed the Malwarebytes program but the blue screen still keeps coming...

By the way my computer is an emachines. The model is ET1831 and the service pack is 1.
Any suggestions?

My Windows 7 laptop will power on and start up without a problem but it will suddenly restart without any notice. I turned off the automatic restart on system failure and it still restarts. It also restarts in safe mode with networking but not in the "regular" safe mode.

I did, somehow, get a blue screen once with this error message:
STOP: 0x0000001E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFF8000377B7DA, 0x0000000000000001, 0x0000000000000018)
Never saw a blue screen since this.

Startup Repair- could not repair automatically
system restore- I restored it to three previous points but still having same issue

Running Windows 7 Home SP1 64-bit
Toshiba Satellite C655
Processor: pentium dual-core CPU T4500 @ 2.30GHZ

My vista laptop is a year old.

Occasionally it shuts down slowly. When that happens when I restart computer a blue screen flashes and then a black screen asking me if I want to start it in safe mode or normal mode.

I click normal mode.

The black screen appears and the system reappears with the same problem.

I have AVG, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, lavasoft and Rogue remover on my system. None of it has found any virus.

Where do I start with solving this problem.

Thanks in advance.

A:Blue Screen @ Start Up And Restarting On It's Own

When the screen comes up that asks you to start in Safe or normal mode, there'll be something in the list that states "Disable automatic restart..." or something similar. Select that and wait for the next Blue Screen. Other ways to do it can be found at this link: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/74644/how-to-disable-automatic-restarts-when-windows-crashes/The computer will stop at the Blue Screen so you can copy down the info we need.

Hello,
My brother has a problem with his laptop. He is running Windows Xp, and the problem is when it starts up, it loads up his account and when you try and click anything it closes down. There was a blue screen that came up, which said Windows needs to be shut down as there was a hardware problem. And now everytime you turn it on, it loads to with the background and the icons and then restarts itself saying windows needs to be shut down.
Please could you help?

As a start off, im not an amazing computer wizz when it comes to these issues.Ok, here goesAround 2 days ago I was recording a video to my laptop (HP Pavillion dv6000 notebook) with a device called the "Hauppauge HD PVR" while recording the screen started flashing like a strobe light then went black. I could hear sound repeating over and over but nothing displaying on the screen. I let it sit for 10 minuites before deciding it had had enough time, and had to hold the power button to switch it off. Upon starting up I could see nothing on the screen but had different colours of lines and blocks going across the screen fading in and out. At this point i thought to myself there is really something wrong going on here and held the power button off again. I then took out the battery put it in again then went to start up. I could now see a little but still grey and colourd blocks all over the screen. I logged in and procceded the start up as normal then went to try and fix the problem by changing the screen resolution (previously 640x480 with 4 bit colour) this worked untill i went to try and watch a video on youtube a dvd or from recordings I had made, which made the computer freeze, the screen go black show a blue screen and then proceed restart. after restarting the resolution would change back and then would not let me change it again, making it really hard to see any settings or even signing up for this site as a matter of fact (sorry for any spelling mistakes).I sea...

I either play Left 4 Dead or Prototype and my computer crashes with a blue screen when I make a swift mouse motion to the right. It doesn't happen all the time, some days I can play L4D for hours and it won't crash.

Some say the most common thing is Logitech Mouseware. I do have a Logitech mouse, Mx510 Performance Optical Mouse (Blue). I am running on Vista, I have visited the driver site for Logitech and found out that Vista does not require any driver for my mouse, and I never had on in the first place for this Dell XPS M1530. I just plug and use.

So ingame, it would happen when I make a sharp turn with the character to look in first person view to the other side or behind me, with lots of things happening at the same time, such as attacks or explosions, screams etc.

This is what I got as the only info that I could possibly even remember during the 10 seconds before reboot during the blue screen.

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
0x0000000E(something like that)

Then when my computer started up completely, it showed this:

A:Vista Blue Screen crashes only in full screen game.

Here's a link to a brief description of the error: Troubleshooting Windows STOP Messages
There's not much info here to go on, but most BSOD's that occur during games are due to video problems, with audio problems coming behind them.

So, for starters:
- download the latest version of the video and audio drivers for your system.
- uninstall the current video and audio drivers through Control Panel...Programs...Uninstall a program.
- install the downloaded drivers.
- reboot and wait for another BSOD :0)

If this doesn't fix it, you'll have to navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump, zip up the contents of that folder and upload it with your next post.

My comp is new, few weeks old, Quad core Q6600,2GB RAM, Saphire radeon x1550 Graphics card.

My PC seems to die at random times with either straight reboot or blue screen with distortions on it and im pretty sure there was a constant beep.

my PSU is a 550w, im not sure of the make though. Voltages are from sensorview.

+5V: 4.92V
+12V:12.00
+5VSB:4.95V

I don't understand what these valtages mean but it seems MAYBE the PSU may be struggling??

Another thing which is pretty strange is internal temp reading on speed fan of 102C though all the other tempretures seem fine. All have a down arrow and all below 40C.

I have turned off automatic restart though at about the exact moment of my last restart im getting a TCPIP error in event viewer, which is also found all the way down my event viewer in system errors, the error reads: IP could not open the registry key for adapter TCPIP\Parameters\Adapters\NDISWANIP.

Just recently my XP PC has started failing to shut down. This happens when I try to restart, but not when shutting down fully. The "Windows is shutting down" screen appears but shortly afterwards I get a blue screen with the following message:

***Hardware Malfunction

Call your hardware vendor for support

***The system has halted***

I then have to press the reset button to start up again.

I have found references to this message in a few places, but there always seem to be other problems (sometimes, but not always, malfunctioning hardware, as suggested by the message), whereas my system is working normally, as far as I can tell.

I do have a USB port that doesn't work. If I plug a device in it seems to be powered, modem lights come on for instance, but Windows doesn't detect the device. However, this has been the case for more than two years without causing any problems. I tried disabling the affected USB port in device manager but this had no effect.
Thanks,

A:"hardware Malfuntion" Blue Screen When Restarting

Hmmm......I am going to take a shot at this and recommend you to perform a checkdisk repair on the computer. Id worked on a similar issue before and somehow checkdisk repair fixed the problem. You can perform checkdisk repair by going into my computer -> right click on the C Drive -> Click on properties -> click tools -> and then click on the error checking part simply click on check now. Then make sure the two boxes in the middle are checked once you click OK, the computer will simply ask you to restart the computer. Reboot and let the process take place.

Alright, I'm gonna get right to it since I'm in a bit of a hurry. If you would like to skip the text wall then below it is my attempt at a short version.

Here's the exact description of how it happened: I was playing the in browser version of Minecraft on the multiplayer server that I host when suddenly everything froze. I waited for about a minute and then ctrl-alt-deleted my way to task manager, from there I closed Internet Explorer and Skype but not before noticing that my Minecraft server had lost connection as well. Everything closed fine and seemed normal but I noticed that my computer was still thinking fairly hard about, what appeared to be, nothing in particular. I gave it a couple minutes and then opened task manager again. There I noticed that the only thing taking up any memory at all was a program called csrss.exe and that it was not listed as Owner, unlike the other items in the list. I got suspicious so I looked csrss.exe up on the internet and discovered that, although it is supposed to be part of the OS, some viruses would disguise themselves as csrss.exe. Reading this I decied (perhaps foolishly) to end the csrss.exe process. When I did an error window popped up stating that it is not possible to end the process. I thought that was odd as well, so I opened Malwarebytes and updated it. I began a quick scan using Malwarebytes and opened IE again (perhaps foolishly).

The other day, I started having a problem with my Dell XPS 420 (refurbished from newegg or tigerdirect). I went to restart it and encountered an error and the computer immediately restarted. It then proceeded to loop over and over, restarting. The restart occurred at the same time that green loading bar shows up. I'm still able to boot in safe mode.

I disabled the automatic restart so I could see what the blue screen error was saying. It said "Page_fault_nonpaged_area" Stop: 0x00000050 0xC5E8ACC8, etc. etc.

I looked around, visited a few forums, not much help. I actually did something dumb and tweeked some of the BIOS settings (I think) by resetting them to the factory defaults. Now, when I restart, it is stuck on a black screen with some white lettering at the top "Storage Manager" or something like that and it stays stuck.

I am able to answer further questions if need be, such as further sys info, just ask me.

Thanks,

Ben

A:blue screen of death and restarting every time

Looks like faulty RAM, at least that's my first idea given the 0x1E error (KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED) and the first parameter is 0xC0000005 (STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION). A STATUS_ACCESS_VIOLATION usually occurs when something tried to access memory and the result was not what was expected. An exception is thrown BUT the problem that caused the exception to be thrown isn't something the kernel can deal with so it tosses up a BSOD with 0x1E K(ernel)MODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED.

Download MemTest86+ Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool and run it at least five times from start to finish and report back.

A:Windows suddenly restarting with a blue screen

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

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:





Quote:
* 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.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:





Quote:
* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Recently, since 29 nov, when i logged on to my user an error that 0x00401000(before this i think i had this error for svchost instead) could not be "written" would appear but it didnt seem to affect my computer usuage so i didnt bother with it also my computer would automatically restart after long usage about 6-10hours(but i used to be able to leave the computer running the whole day). At first I thought this was just because the computer was too hot as the fans would be blowing away loudly for several minutes before it restarts and dismissed the problem. However, today the moment i log into my user within a few seconds the computer restarts. After restarting my computer a few times the problem didnt go away. I thought it might due to some missing files so i tried to solve it by using my windows cd and do an autosystem recovery. But instead of auto restarting the blue screen error came up. I restarted the computer several times and noticed that i was receiving different error codes each time:
Stop: 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0xc42270e6, 0xbacfba60, 0x00000000)
Stop: 0x000000be (0xbac79000, 0x17e9b121, 0xbacfbbbc, 0x0000000b)
Stop: 0x00000050 (0xbab98000, 0x00000001, 0x8053715c, 0x00000000)
I only recorded these 3 codes before i gave up. i am not sure if there are other error codes.
I am still able to access the computer in safe mode. Tried to use system recovery

Hello:

I just restarted my computer and now the machine is continually restarting. The last thing that I did before restarting my computer initially was update iTunes/Quicktime.

Each time the computer restarts I get passed the Windows XP logo and onto my desktop. Usually it takes about 15-20 seconds before the screen goes blank and restarts.

After restarting in safe mode (which I am in now) I turned off automatic restart and was instead greeted with the blue screen of death. The following error is displayed on the blue screen:

STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFFFF2, 0x00000000, 0x80543C1D, 0x00000000)

Another post had a similar issue and I have looked through the help suggestions but have been unable to correct the problem. I am unable to install a Microsoft Debug tool to analyze C:/Windows/Minidump files and I am also unable in uninstall Quicktime in Safemode. Additionally trying to use the updater for iTunes was also unsuccessful.

Does anyone have any suggestions on what I might try next? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Best Regards,

Jason R. Nason

A:Computer keeps restarting / blue screen of death

Bad idea to delete any Windows system file without a very clear understanding of what you are doing. Also bad idea to advise someone to do the same things. Finally, giving specific malware-removal advices is vs. the rules here, and will get frowned upon by forum staff when they read this.

You may not be infected. If you can get to Safe Mode, navigate to
Start>Run>(type)"msconfig" and in Selective Startup, turn off all non-MS services and all startups and see if the machine will run without BSOD.

If it does, your BSOD is being caused by a 3rd Party application, and not malware, system file, device driver, etc...

Then it's just a matter of figuring out which of the things you've turned off is the cause of the problems.

I got a new hard drive and reformatted it today as a secondary drive, I had no sound and couldnt find the cd with my speakers so i tried downloading drivers (realtek) off the net which didnt work, after a bit i got annoyed and thought it could be something to do with BIOS. So I tried to update my BIOS, from ASrock 755-VSTA 1.00(I think) to ASrock 755-VSTA 2.70, but it just made my pc stupidly slow loading up, about 20 minutes, so i tried system recovers which didnt work, so i looked for the version of bios i had before to see if i could get it back running fast but i could only find 1.70 and installed that, now i cant get on any hard drive because it just restarts while loading and i cant reformat because i get blue screen.

Will it help if i reset the bios by taking out the battery or do I have to get a new motherboard all together?

Thanks in advance and sorry about the long story.

Yesterday I turned on my laptop which came preloaded with Vista and it popped up the black screen that says, "Windows failed to start. A recent hardware or software change might be the cause." Then it gives me the option to launch the startup repair or boot windows normally.

If I try to boot Windows normally, it just gives a microsecond view of a blue screen then it puts me right back where I started.

If I try the startup repair, it tries running for a minute, then it says, "Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically," and gives me the option to send or not send the info to Microsoft.

This system is used for my business and I'm pretty dependent on it.
Any suggestions for how to proceed on this would be VERY appreciated!!

p.s. regarding the computer's message about new hardware or software, I have not installed anything new on it for some time. Don't know if that's helpful info or not.

The error appears to be different every time but the ones I have seen repeated are "WHEA_UNCORRECTABLE_ERROR" and "MACHINE_CHECK_EXCEPTION". I can get into the BIOS and that's about it. I can't find a way to boot into safe mode and when I try and install a fresh copy of windows 10 via USB created from microsoft i still get a blue screen error after a couple of seconds. I'm really stuck here and don't know what to do - can anybody help?

A:Constant Blue Screen Error and restarting loop - Can't do anything!!

Both crashes are hardware failure crashes, given the added components and the fact you can't get into safe mode it only defines a hardware problem and so the new components need to be tested.
Because you have a SSD you can't really test it with multiple tools which I would normally suggest.
With the SSD you could try a different cable and/or a different hard drive.

Hey everyone!

So I have been having problems for a while with my Toshiba Satellite laptop. I have been receiving the infamous "blue screen" error which restarts my computer. I can still start my computer and go on for a while until multiple errors pop up (not all at once) they just take turns restarting my laptop.

So to get to the point, I am receiving these errors:
MEMORY_MANAGEMENT

DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

PFN_LIST_CORRUPT

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA

There might be more but off memory (haha get it?) thats all I can remember. I am guessing its the RAM but don't wanna buy new sticks if I'm completely wrong.

Oh and I have also run check disk, memory diagnostics, scanned for viruses, deleted "washed out" drivers and god knows what else. So any help would be appreciated.

Hello,

I've had pretty good luck with vista so far but every so often it will blue screen on me and I cant figure out why.

The scenario is 1. System startup from power off condition
2. System boots to login screen
3. Blue screen referencing processor timing or something

I have not overclocked or anything everything is vanilla. I would also note that I run hardware diagnostics utilities and it seems fine. Also, I never get the message about abnormal system termination like ususal. How can I get a clue as to what is going on here. So far it seems like the error is bogus, I can log in and the machine will run for days with no problem.

If a desktop, open the case and check for dust clogging the cooler and to see if the fan on the card is working.
If a laptop, check to be sure the cooling fan is blowing air out - and then blow the ventilation ports out with canned air (don't use a vacuum cleaner or an air compressor as it can cause damage to the system)
