The issues that I am having are my desktop wallpaper has been taken over by the blank screen with the 'warning: spyware detected on you're computer' box, at startup i am bumbarded by the same two alerts telling me /Documents' can't be found and another i can't recall and the way to get them to go away is just hitting ok about 5 or so times. Then, if i leave my computer for too long, almost as if it were a screen saver, my computer will blue screen for a moment and then pretend it is restarting but all i have to do is hit escape and it goes back to desktop.

It seems multiple people have been having this problem but with slight differences here and there, so i thought i'd ask the pros, ur help is well appreciated

Hello:

My laptop was working fine last night, then this morning it will not boot up.

I get the following message:

STOP: c0000135 {Unable to Locate DLL}
The dynamic link library winsrv could not be found in the specified path Default Load Path.
Beginning dump of physical memory.
Physical memory dump complete, contact your system administrator or technical support group.

I have tried to reboot several times and get the same message. I have a Compaq Amanda 7800, Windows NT 4.0 build 1381, service pack 4, and 128 MB of memory.

I don't have a Windows NT set up disk, or a boot disk.

A:{Advice Offered} - Blue Screen on boot up (Missing or corrupt DLL file)

Greetings

Ok... I probably do not have good news for you.

Are your NT system files on a FAT partition? If so, then you can boot of a DOS6.11 boot disk (The one I have set up is available here) and expand the file off your NT CD and write it to your HD, as it is likely to be corrupt.

If the partition is formatted with NTFS, you have a much more harder task. You have the following options:

a) Format the HD and re-install NT. If you have important data that you need to save off the HD, then you can use NTFSdos from Sysinternals.com (which is supplied on my boot disk) to read the NTFS drive and extract the data.

b) Buy a Read/WRITE version of NTFSdos and use it to expand the DLL off your CD and write it to the HD as per the FAT16 instructions (PS. If you decide on this choice, I would LOVE to have a copy of the Read/WRITE version of NTFSdos, or better yet ERD {Emergency Repair Disk} Commander)

c) Install a second copy of Winnt into a different directory on the same HD. Then expand the DLL off your CD and write it to the HD in the old NT directory. You will probably have to edit your boot.ini file to include the old NT version.

Let's assume the boot.ini file looked like this (I have used my Win2K boot.ini file, which only has ONE line for the NT OS to start. In NT4 there are 2 lines; keep both lines intact):

[boot loader]
timeout=3
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINNT
[operating systems]

Hi,

I'm an intern with an NGO organization where one of the desktop computers started having problems about a week ago. The computer is a Dell running Windows 7. Every morning, the first person to turn it on sees a whole bunch of updates being installed. The boot screen is irregular, it doesn't include the F2 or F12 options for changing the setup, and it never goes to the log screen. Instead, it goes to a "Startup Repair" window, runs a "scan" that can't be canceled, and then reports that Windows was unable to fix the problem and offers an option to restart. If I click to see the full diagnostic, everything checks out except the last item, which says that "critical boot file ci.dll is corrupt." If I go to "Advanced Diagnostic Tools," it doesn't allow to me do a system restore or much of anything else besides open the command prompt, and I can do only limited diagnostic tasks from there. If I restart, though, it restarts and functions perfectly normally. I installed Avast on there when I started working with it and the full virus scan finds no problems. The computer functions normally for the rest of the day; however, when I go to shut it down after 5 oclock, it says that it's installing 67 updates, every single day.

I can't figure out whether this is some bizarre virus that just makes it take a little longer to use the computer every morning, or a much more malicious virus whose effects simply haven't mani... Read more

Every time the computer is turned on or restarted it runs Starup Repair. When i look at the diagnosis it says 'boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupt'. I have already tried to restore the computer but i don't have the discs where i have backed up the computer. I have also run a virus scan with Avira and it did pick up 4 viruses and i removed them but the error still occurs. If someone could help me and give me guidance it'll be much appreciated.

A:Startup Repair error : Boot critical file c:\ci.dll is corrupted

After the PC tries the start up repair, select advanced options. From there you should be able to access CMD.

Once you get CMD open run this command. sfc /scannow -This will scan the integrity of all protected system files and repairs the system files if needed.

Hi lately in the last 2 weeks, I have been experiencing a remarkable number of restarts, and blue screens. I thought i might be a dirty computer so i cleaned it out and took the power supply out and cleaned it from dust as best as i could.. there was a lot of dust in there. I thought things would get better from there as i had done several virus scans and loaded a controller for my firewall so i can manage things better in case i have been highjacked or infiltrated.. but it just shut down again on its own when i was in the middle of not allowing windows media player to connect to the internet and was going to disable or uninstall it as i saw some suspicious behavior from the windows media player network and i don't even use it. So all this to say, I need help, i am afraid i am about to have my computer die if i don't find out what is wrong. Thanks D

Hello,

I'm running Windows XP service pack 3 on a home built desktop.

During some surfing sessions online (usually when running youtube) my desktop will flash a blue screen with error wordings. After a restart Windows will state that a critical error had happened. I thought it might be dirty so I clean out the inside and dusted it.

Another problem has started to accure in my MMO World of Warcraft. I start into the game and the in game latency will read 2000-6000+ and framerate down to 20-25. These last 2 attempts to lauch the game have resulted in the computer simply turning itself off. Not exiting out of Windows or other processes. Simply turning off. I tried running Malware-Bytes but the computer again turned itself off.

I had read at the World of Warcraft support forums that errors such as high latency and corrupted errors could be the pressence of a virus.

Is what I am experiencing a virus? Hardware issue? Or does my ISP simply not very good.

Is it even possible for a virus to fiddle with a modem and cause lag and erratic unstable connections with the ISP?

Thank you for your time.

Hello,Now that you have posted a log here: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic344385.html you should NOT make further changes to your computer (install/uninstall programs, use special fix tools, delete files, edit the registry, etc) unless advised by a MRT Team member, nor should you ask for help elsewhere.

A:Critical system driver is missing or corrupt staus 0xc00000e9 file: windows\system32\

hm ... I think that is referring to your HDD drivers. If you don't have a drivers disk already, then:

1.) Enter your BIOS
2.) Write down the make and model of your HDD
3.) Download the drivers for your HDD from it's manufacturer's website.
4.) Burn the driver to a disk (a jump drive might work, I can't remember)
5.) Your Windows installation menu should have a "load drivers" option some where.

EDIT: Nice catch, Archean! My tired brain didn't pick-up on that time-saving possibility.

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

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,

Hello,I will be helping you with your problems. Please be patient while I assist you.Some points for you to keep in mind while I am helping you to make things go easier and faster for both of us Please do NOT run, install or uninstall any programs, unless instructed to do so.
We ask you to run different tools in a specific order to ensure the malware is completely removed from your machine, and running any additional tools may detect false positives, interfere with our tools, or cause unforeseen damage or system instability. Please do not attach logs or use code boxes, just copy and paste the text.
Due to the high volume of logs we receive it helps to receive everything in the same format, and code boxes make the logs very difficult to read.

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).

Hi there,
I have been having several errors- one being a Blue Screen Error (which has been occuring for probably over a year now, every so often) and another one occuring only on my other account on this computer (which says something along the lines of "Windows has encountered a critical problem and will restart automatically in one minute.") right after logging in (after some programs have loaded). I never really bothered with resolving the Blue Screen Error because it wasn't that serious to me- though it was very annoying, but this new critical error when I log into my other account is REALLY frustrating to deal with. I am not new to computers and have quite a bit of knowledge about them, so don't worry about holding back any details or technical explanations, I'll probably understand most of it.

Windows XP at startup indicates there is a missing DLL file which is a file that must have been picked up on a web site. My anti-virus is giving my machine a clean bill of health so no problems virus wise. My machine does not need this file to run properly. I want to find the command that is asking for this file to load and delete it so I no longer get thle error message. Any ideas?

I recently tried to do a system restore on my computer that runs Windows XP. In the middle of the process it stopped. Now when I try to boot up my computer it says

"Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

<Windows root>\system32\hal.dll.

Please re-install a copy of the above file"

I tried searching for answers to fix it but most of them require the Windows disk which I do not have anymore. Can you please tell me how to fix the problem or where I can find a Windows disk so I can fix the problem? Thanks!

A:Missing or Corrupt File on Startup

You can try running sfc with the scannow option. Go to Start, then to Run, and type in "SFC.EXE /SCANNOW" (without the quotes - and with a space between the SFC.EXE and the /SCANNOW). Then press Enter. This program will just exit without telling you anything, so you will need to restart your computer to see if it affected a repair.Is this a custom build that you installed the XP on? If so, do you still have the 25 character code that came with it?If this is a retail computer, (Dell, HP, Gateway...)what is the make and model of it?

Is that Kazaa I see? We don't recommend using any P2P programs but Kazaa is definitely one that must go. That program is bundled with lots of spyware.

Please print out or copy this page to Notepad. Make sure to work through the fixes in the exact order it is mentioned below. If there's anything that you don't understand, ask your question(s) before proceeding with the fixes. You should 'not' have any open browsers when you are following the procedures below.

Go to My Computer->Tools/View->Folder Options->View tab and make sure that 'Show hidden files and folders' (or 'Show all files') is enabled. Also make sure that 'Display the contents of system folders' is checked. If you have Windows XP, the search feature is a little different. When you click on 'All files and folders' on the left pane, click on the 'More advanced options' at the bottom. Make sure that 'Search system folders', 'Search hidden files and folders', and 'Search subfolders' are checked.

For the options that you checked/enabled earlier, you may uncheck them after your log is clean. If we ask you to fix a program that you use or want to keep, please post back saying that (we don't know every program that exists, so we may tell you to delete a program that we think is bad to keep).

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

I'm in the process of repair/recovery of my machine (Dell Inspiron 8500 with Windows XP Home, Service Pack 2). I'm following exactly the instructions in: http://attachments.techguy.org/attac...chmentid=62075, but a problem has developed. The "software" file (which is the file that the original blue screen error message says is "corrupt, absent or not writable") will not copy to the new tmp directory to create the backup. My understanding from the article is that this backup file (software.bak) will later be used to restore correct settings for various software applications. Since I can't copy it, it appears that I am screwed, no? Or is there a way out somehow?

Thanks to anyone who's been there and can help...

BTW I have the XP installation disk that came with, and a diagnostics disk which I have not yet run.

A:Blue Screen: Registry File Failure; can't copy corrupted file to tmp directory

Never mind, I had it wrong--didn't read the document referred to above carefully enough. The procedure worked like a charm, and the document is very easy to read and entertaining to boot! (pun intended).

The document describes a procedure that closely follows a Microsoft KB document (which I now can't find) but does not contain any warning regarding whether the OS is an OEM (original equipment manufacture) install or not. The Microsoft doc says not to use the procedure on an OEM-installed OS, but I just did it on my Dell, so that warning seems to be incorrect.

Many many thanks for the help provided by this document and this site.

hi,

im hoping someone can help me out of a jam. my dell laptop has been working very well until now....when it refuses to load windows, instead stalling with a blue screen on every attempt to load. the bluscreen tells me that windows was unable to load, and says "unmountable_boot_volume." under the heading "technical information" it says:

0x000000ED (0x83346030, 0xc0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

i have no idea whether that is relevant but included it in case it is.

i know i was short on memory, and im wondering whether windows is refusing to load because of that....or whether a virus has taken over me computer (!). ive tried loading windows in every safe mode, in last known good configuration....is there a hotkey to load the DOS prompt before windows, to try and edit the windows registry from there? is there anything i can do short of reformating and reinstalling windows? if anyone knows how to deal with this, please, PLEASE give me hand.

many thanks,

Earlier this year my computer suffered a liquid coolant leak that destroyed basically every chip in the case. As it was still under warranty, I had it repaired by the folks at cyberpower for free. It was returned however with my RAID configuration undone, and only one of my hard drives had been formatted and retrieved, while the slave drive was still filled with the files from before the incident, including an inert copy of windows (I say inert because the computer boots from the other drive). Today I got it in my head to format this drive so I could proceed in filling it with all the media garbage files eating up space on my master drive. Bad move. Now, after booting to my desktop, my computer crashes to blue screen about half way through filling my system tray.

I have tried using my OEM disc to repair the problem, but it seems that it is not with windows directly. Running in safe mode doesn't seem to cause any problems. Fault bucket 462809357 is the error I'm finding in my application event history time stamped around the time of the blue screen failures. I'm not completely opposed to wiping my hard drive, but I am sort of attached to the way I have it set up now. Enclosed are my 3 most recent mindumps to help diagnose the problem.
 

A:Blue screen AFTER startup

I would have thought that formatting the unused drive would not have done anything, since it's no longer in use in a RAID configuration. Strange.

I can't say that I know what happened there, but someone who has a better knowledge should be around to help. I wish you luck.

All it says is to obtain the latest service pack for Vista.

Have you recently installed any new hardware? I ask because if you can boot in safe mode, there's a possibility that a device driver might be causing the fault.

I just got this brand new dell laptop, installed with vista home basic (ya not the best out there i know). It was working fine for the first week or 2, then after that i got an error. The BSoD. The very odd thing about this is that it does not happen too often, and only happens on ONE occasion. and thats in the log-in menu of the computer. I go to restart my computer, and everything boots up fine. BIOS, WIndows Vista, etc. Then it starts up the log-in screen, and for some reason, when i dont log in my user-name in a certain amount of time, the blue screen comes up and restarts my computer. Its very wierd. However, if i am able to log in quickly enough, everything boots up fine and the computer doesnt show any signs of problems. In short, this BSoD only occurs when i dont log-in my username, and just leave it in that uersname log-in menu for a certain amount of time.
I set the settings now so that whenever the BSoD comes up, it doesnt re-boot my laptop so i can take note of the information on it, and heres what it is:

Hello and thank you for taking the time to read about the situation. First, I'll start with the things I tried before the event happened. First off I noticed my computer getting slower and slower, as well as a malware that started running antimalware doctor or something like that (forgot the name) in the background, so I tried a malwarebytes scan and a spybot scan to fix it. Afterwards, the computer started running better, but the sound driver was uninstalled for some reason. Afterwards, I noticed that anything that i clicked on google or yahoo, it would autodirect to a weird random website. I searched up the problem, and found out that Hitman Pro cleans up the viruses efficently that caused the problem. I ran the program, thought it was good, and restarted the computer to see the effects. Right after that, blue screen would pop up after everything started up, and the computer would restart. It wasn't as soon as I heard the windows music, but it was right after all my programs loaded up on the bottom right. I tried restarting it, but I couldn't make it work. So i opened up safe mode with networking and it works fine, but I still have that redirect bug. I searched up the blue screen after malware removal and came accross this website, so I thought this may work. I hope you guys can fix it!

Boot into the Advanced Boot Options.
 
With the computer off, press the power button and immediately start tapping the F8 key and continue until the Advanced Boot Options open.  You will see an image similar to the one below.
 
 
 
You will need to use the up or down keys to navigate the pointer where you want it to be, the press Enter to make the selection.
 
Choose Disable automatic restart on system failure.
 
Restart the computer and tell me what happens.
 
With the computer off, press the power button and open the Advanced Boot Options again, then choose Safe Mode.

I recently dusted out my computer as it was overheating like hell. It made the fan stop working for a few minutes (not unusual, this computer is terrible) and when I finally got it to start working it blue screens on startup. error starts with STOP: 0x00000024 and some stuff in parentheses that I'll write down later if you need it. It's a blue screen that i've never seen before as it's shorter than normal, only half the screen actually has text.

Even weirder, and to help prove that it's not a hardware problem, I can boot into linux without any issues on the same computer, same hard drive.

EDIT: okay, so apparently it's a common dirty NTFS issue. Still, any ideas what to do?

EDIT 2: I have done some linux ntfs crap and all I get is: partition is already mounted or refusing to work with partition, so no luck there.

Ok straight to the point. My computer is Blue Screening right after the windows boot logo, with the error "Page Fault in Nonpaged Area", stop code of 50 and no file name listed. The same happens when I try safe mode, but I am able to get into windows using debugging mode, under which some things crash the whole system.

The same thing happened a few weeks ago which I was able to recover from by using a combination of windows repair, UBCD4Win, a lot of cursing, windows updates and tweaking. But I'd rather not do that again. At the time I didn't try debugging mode till after I used windows repair.

I think it might have been caused by some malware, as some strange things happened right before each time. I'll get some help with that after I get windows booting normally again ;)

I can provide any extra information needed.

Hello and welcome to TSF!

The driver is in the BSOD is a Nvidia driver... update your nvidia drivers from their website. If that doesn't work then download Driver Sweeper and go into Safe Mode with Networking... run Driver Sweeper and delete all Nvidia drivers you can find, restart in Safe Mode with Networking then install the latest Nvidia drivers again. Restart in normal Windows mode.

I have to say you power supply is not good enough for your video card and you should consider upgrading to a Corsair 650w.

I went through various ways of trying to take it off and finally decided to restart in safe mode and try to fix the damage from there. I selected /SAFEBOOT in msconfig and restarted. Now the computer boots to a blue screen displaying the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error code, along with STOP: 0x0000000A (0xF79A2354, 0x000000FF, 0x00000001, 0x804E2E41). All signs point to this being a software problem as my hardware has not changd recently. No matter what I select (safe mode, last known good config, start normally), I get the same blue screen. The only things I can access are BIOS and recovery console (with boot CD). I'm fairly computer literate but at this point I am completely stumped... help please!?

I can run safe mode on the system in question, and even with networking with no problem at all

I need the mini dump so I can see what driver is causing the issue.


To enable mini-dumps in Windows 2000/XP/2003 do the following:
Right click on My Computer, choose Properties and go to the Advanced tab;
Click Settings in the Startup and Recovery box;
Choose Small memory dump in Write debugging information;
Close all the dialog windows by clicking OK buttons;
Reproduce the system crash;
The small dump file will be created in the directory chosen in the Small dump directory box.

Do that before you try to start up the game, and if you could could you tell me the driver. It'll be something like isatr.sys in the BSOD right near the numbers (ox00000d1 )

Hello,

Do you have the Windows XP re-install disc? If so you can get to the Recovery Console and hopefully run a chkdsk /r to repair.

I have recently been getting a blue screen when i start up my computer. The error message on the blue screen says "page fault in non paged area". It then asks if I want to start windows normally, or in safe mode or other options. I start it normally cause I don't know what to do to fix it. I haven't added new software, so I don't know what happened. Can someone help me?

windows is driving me nuts

any and all help would be appreciated here...

This all started yesterday when I somehow managed to get a trojan on my computer. I went through various ways of trying to take it off and finally decided to restart in safe mode and try to fix the damage from there. I selected /SAFEBOOT in msconfig and restarted. Now the computer boots to a blue screen displaying the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error code, along with STOP: 0x0000000A (0xF79A2354, 0x000000FF, 0x00000001, 0x804E2E41). All signs point to this being a software problem as my hardware has not changd recently. No matter what I select (safe mode, last known good config, start normally), I get the same blue screen. The only things I can access are BIOS and recovery console (with boot CD). I'm fairly computer literate but at this point I am completely stumped... help please!?

There is more to the BSOD message that would include which driver is the one that needs to be updated, but you didn't include it. Try this: Stop error message on a Windows XP-based computer: "STOP 0x000000D1"
Also, run this program, BSOD_XP_v1.3_jcgriff2_PROD.exe.when it is done go to My Documents and zip up the file TSF_XP_SUPPORT and attach it in your next post, this will tell us more about your system.

Essentially my task mangers usage %'s were seeming suspicious so I downloaded a free antivirus called Immunet and ran a flash scan.It promptly detected services.exe as malware and automatically quarantined it after which the computer automatically shut it self down citing some error at which point the computer doesn't reach the login screen even in safe mode before it blue screen saying some thing similar to "a critical process failed to start or was terminated" I understand this means I probably have a fairly serious virus problem but getting the computer to start up is my main priority.

I have a Dell Inspiron 8600 running Windows XP Home edition with Service Pack 3 that we have been using on our wireless network without a problem until recently. We are using a Linksys wireless router, model wrt54gs v7.

There are 2 computers using the router one works fine, the other started getting a blue screen each time an attempt is made to boot the computer about a month agao ...this is the Dell. While on a trip recently we took the computer with us and we were able to connect to other wireless networks so we thought the problem had been solved.

When we returned home I attempted to start up the computer and got the blue screen again. It appeared that it would fail when an attempt was made to start the wireless connection so I took the computer to a local coffee shop and again attempted to start windows. It started just fine and was able to utilize the wireless network there.

While I could, I disabled the wireless network and upon returning home again attempted to start the computer up. Now it will boot up with no problem but I cannot connect to the wireless network (it blue screens)

Is there a way I can delete the original setup for our wireless network so I can set it up again or is there something else I can do to correct this?

Thanks.
 

A:Blue Screen on Startup

are you connecting using windows zero config or dells connection tool. To delete the connection is easy you just have to go into whatever tool your using and look for stored connections highlight it and hit the delete key. I'm not familiar with the dell tool so I can't help with it much but if you get in it and go to all the screens you will find the saved connections just highlight your home connection and delete it. If its window Zero config right click on the wireless icon in the tray and go to manage wireless networks. Or its on the screen where you connect on the left hand side it says manage wireless networks or something close to that. I'm on vista and trying to remember where it is on XPs wireless config.

Sorry I couldn't be more specific but I saw no one else had responded and thought I would try to at least steer you in the direction you need to look.

The kernel mode I/O subsystem attempted to mount the boot volume and it failed. This error also might occur during an upgrade to Win XP on systems that use higher throughput ATA disks or controllers with incorrect cabling. In some cases, your system might appear to work normally after you restart.

This is almost always a problem with the hard drive ; either incorrect , loose or damaged cabling, or controllers or that you have the drive settings incorrect in the bios.

If in the event you have a Bluescreen first try this:~

A driver is a program that controls a device. Every device, whether it be a printer, disk drive, or keyboard, must have a driver program. Many drivers, such as the keyboard driver, come with the operating system. For other devices, you may need to load a new driver when you connect the device to your computer.
So, if you added a new device or updated your computer you will very likely need to update your drivers...

Goto Start click on it
Goto Computer right click on it
Click on manage
Click continue

This opens a new window called 'computer management'
Scroll down to device manager and click on it.
On the screen is a list of all your 'DEVICES'

Ok, start at the top and work your way down
Right click on each device and click on properties.
Up pops a little window that says this below:~
Click this bar to view the full image.



Click on drivers
Then click on update...
Then do that for every driver and you should not have a Blue screen...
Do this once a month!

If we shut it down and start again, in one to three tries, it will eventually boot up all the way and perform normally.The blue screen references a variable, DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL.

Hey everyone.

When I startup my computer and it starts loading Windows XP, suddenly it flashes to a Blue Screen with the following message:

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

I thought about reinstalling the operating system, but I don't want to lose all my files. Any thoughts on what I should do?

-Joe

P.S. As always, happy to make a nice donation for help.

A:Blue Screen at Startup

Hi Joe !

That message means a system file is corrupt. The problem is that Windows file protection should prevent unwanted changed to system files, meaning that there's a good chance that you have some hardware problem and that the urlmon.dll file is not the only one corrupt.

Had you installed any new program or update right before the first crash ? Anything unusual happened : crash, power failure, ... ?

What version of Windows XP and what service pack are you using ?

What version of internet explorer ?

What's the brand and model of your computer ? Do you have the XP install CD and if so what service pack is on that CD ? If this is a preinstalled version of Windows and you only have a recovery disk then tell us about it.

Repeatedly press F8 while the computer starts and see if you can boot using the last known good configuration. If that didn't work then see if you can boot in safe mode or safe mode with command prompt.

Once in Windows go to start => run and type chkdsk c: /R. You'll be prompted to restart the computer and your drive will be checked for errors. Tell us about the scan's results and retry to start the computer normally.

If you can't start Windows in either of those modes then grab a retail XP CD to access the recovery console and scan the hard drive for errors (if needed you can borrow a retail XP CD for this purpose but keep in mind that you won't be able to use a retail XP CD to reinstall on an OEM system).

Try booting up in Safe Mode and going to Control Panel>System>Device Manger tab to look for any indications of problems such as yellow ! or red ? by any of the devices. If none are found, you may have to start trouble shooting by physically removing unnecessary cards such as modem, sound etc... With only the necessary video, memory and floppy/hard drive/cd installed. If it boots correctly, you replace 1 card at a time until it fails again. You should, prior to this extreem measure, make sure all cards, memory and cables are seated securely.

I have done a few hours of reading around and realised that one common cure isn’t viable so i am going to ask for help here.

gpu : sapphire hd5770
ram : 4 gig corsair xms3 (2x2gig)
cpu : amd phenom 2 black edition 955 3.2ghz

I initially thought it could be a ram fault so I had 2 spare sticks of 2 gig matching ram to test, same bluescreen. I then tested each of the sticks one at a time in port After that I took out my gpu and tried again to only result in the same bsod.

I have used the BSOD Dump & System File Collection app (EXE file) and have it in a file attached to this thread. I tried the system health report but i came up with the error of wrong file thread or something. I forgot to write down the actual reason o.O.
Anyway any help would be hugely appreciated on the matter. Cheers in advance,

We have had a blue screen upon startup for over a week on our computer.  We think it is caused by the removal of a driver or a windows update.  This is the statement we get....
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.  Here is the technical info:  STOP:  0X0000007B (0XFFFFF880009A9928, 0XFFFFFFFFC0000034, 0X0000000000000000, 0X0000000000000000)
 
There was an automatic update which was downloaded before the crash.  But.... before the windows update, my husband deleted a driver (from a backup drive) because it was continuously asking to have an update downloaded. 
 
If you can help guide us through this, we would be so thankful!

I've been living with this problem for a while now. Whenever my computer starts up (whether it's a reboot or just a normal boot), I receive a blue screen with just this text:

STOP c0000139 {entry point not found}
The procedure entry point ntoskrnl.ExiAcquireFastMutex could not be located in the dynamic link library HAL.dll

This is the only text on the screen and it does not seem to be creating a crash dump. The problem started at least a month ago, and I don't have a restore point from when it happened so I can't do a system restore. I also don't think it is malware because it only started after I turned off the computer in the middle of an update.

Once I recieve this message I just reboot and it boots up fine. I've run scans with both avast home edition and spybot, and the problem still persists. I have a lenovo thinkpad x61 tablet running vista business sp2. Any help would be great.

The Timing of it happening 2min after desktop makes me think that this could be software still loading that may not be compatable.

I would boot into safe mode, and if you are good and no BSOD, Open "MSCONFIG" and disable all your startup programs, reboot, if all is well, Enable them one by one and be very picky about it to try and ID the program.

I have a desktop running Vista Home Basic SP2 (32-bit). The PC began to take noticeably longer to get to the screen where I enter my password. Then I began to notice that it took longer for my desktop to appear after I entered my password and hit "enter."
I started the habit of waiting a minute or longer before I would enter my password and hit Enter. (I noticed that when I did this the desktop would appear shortly after- more like when it was new.)
Today, there was a blue screen for about 10-15 seconds before the desktop appeared.
Can this be remedied? Does it mean I have a virus maybe? Any advice would be appreciated.

I installed RC1 a couple months ago and it was working great. Today quite randomly my computer froze. I held the power button down and turned it off, but now it won't start up again.
At first the only thing that happened was the computer would turn on but the screen would show nothing. I turned it off again for a couple minutes and tried again. This time it got to the windows starting screen before flashing a blue screen and restarting. I tried doing windows repair, but it gets stuck on loading files, or it goes to a black screen with a red bar at the top.
Safe modes and last good config all get blue screens.
When i do the disable auto restart option it gives me two separate blue screens.
The first one i got said Bad_Pool_Header and the second one says a device driver was trying to corrupt my system.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello everyone,

Thanks for taking time to view my thread. I let my brother borrow my laptop and now it doesn't work. This is whats going on: After the Dell logo comes on the screen automatically goes to safe mode options w/o me tapping F5 key. If I choose safe mode or normal mode it begins to load up then a blue screen pops up and reads:

"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 components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced startup options, and then select Safe Mode.

I have been experiencing frequent BSOD for a while. After reading through many threads, I have done a system repair, updated my graphic card's driver, and I have done a memory diagnostic with memtes on my ram (each with 2 passes). Before I did all those, I used to get BSOD whenever I watched youtube. Now, I always get BSOD once when I turn on my computer.

Please Help!!!!

Thanks!!!

A:Blue Screen After Startup

It's pointing to memory corruption. Did you remove any of the sticks during testing? If so make sure that all sticks are seated firmly back into the slots and at least run the test for memory for 7 passes or overnight, you have a lot of ram that takes a pretty good test and two hours wouldn't give you a complete run of the blocks. Memtest86 guide: RAM - Test with Memtest86+

After you run the Memtest report back and let us know the results also I would update to sp1: windows6.1-KB976932-X64.exe 903.0 MB Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1 (KB976932) your system drivers are almost 3 years old anf fill in the rest of your system specs in your profile using the attached program it will give better and more complete info on your system.

Hi guys, so today I turned on my computer and after the loading screen this weird blue screen popped up. It was there for about 30 seconds then my computer restarted. I've attached pictures of it I managed to take before it restarted.
So I'm looking to see if anyone knows what this might be and what I should do if it's something bad.

Thanks in advance.

A:Odd blue screen on startup

Hi Shadow3 & Welcome to the forums ^_^,

Are you able to get to the desktop? According to the pictures, it seems that it is probably related to hardware. Did you try resetting the BIOS options to Default Settings?
Do you hear the sounds of fan when the system starts? If you cannot hear anything, is there any airflow at the air vent which is generally present at the sides of the laptop or at the bottom of the laptop?

Hey guys.

This afternoon i DL the latest patch 3.3.5 for World of Warcraft, but when i started up the game it crashed and the whole computer with it.

When i turned on the computer again, right before the logon screen it showed blue screen saying that an error had been found and windows had been shut down to prevent damage. It has done this a couple of times before random (not associated with wow).

But now it keeps on doing it, right before the logon screen appears :O I tried starting it in safemode and uninstalled wow but it didnt solve the problem. Every third time or so, the logon screen appears and it starts up fine with no problems though, so it seems pretty random
I also tried running the startup repair tool, but it didnt work either.
Also sometimes the resolution gets messed up (set too 400*600 or something) when the logon screen finally appears after a couple of blue screens.

It came up with this:

Whenever i startup my computer and i see the black windows screen and you can see it loading, after 10 seconds this BLUE screen comes up. I didn't install any new hardware. I have those 6 boot disks, but it says the second disk has a problem...this is the message, File \ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded. The error code is 7. Setup cannot continue. Press any key to exit.
The blue screen says.

A Problem has been detected and windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer
UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME

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

Hello,

The other day my computers screen randomly turned blue and my computer started to reboot itself over and over, only to get another blue screen and reboot itself again over and over.

Also, I can't access any commands because my keyboard won't work upon startup, it only starts to work once I'm in windows, which I can't access because my computer gets a blue screen every time. I have another keyboard (an older one), if I use this one will I be able to access the commands?

thankyou

I borrowed my in laws computer while mine is in shop with anti-spyware soft virus which finally took it over.It is a dell with xp about 2 years old. After downloading my mouse software I restarted and everything seemed fine until I brought it home and turned it on.Now upon starting it sometimes goes to the windows screen for a second and than to blue screen,other times it just boots into the blue screen. It says on the blue screen among other things that a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage. It also said to check any newly installed software for updates.I should say the mouse was working perfectly. I deleted the mouse software in safe mode and hooked up the dell mouse however the blue screen still comes up on startup.I called the mouse people and they said it is a microsoft problem. Their is technical information that comes up in blue screen it reads as follows: ***Stop:oxoooooo71,oxoooooooo,oxoooooooo,oxoooooooo,oxoooooooo. Any ideas on how to fix this?

So you can boot into safe mode? if so then please boot into safemode with networking and do the following:Download BlueScreenViewNo installation required.Double click on BlueScreenView.exe file to run the program.When scanning is done, go Edit>Select All.Go File>Save Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt.Open BSOD.txt in Notepad, copy all content, and paste it into your next reply.

Hi guys,

So I am getting a blue screen of death on start up, within 15 or 20 seconds after the computer reaches the desktop it blue screens. The safe mode seems to be working so I am using that currently to post here for help. Whenever it blue screens the only useful information that it gives is the stop code 0x0000001E (0xFFFFFFFFC0000005, 0xFFFFF00227E15A, 0x0000000000000000, 0x000000007EFA0000) if that helps any. Also, I ran some scans while in safe mode (Malware Bytes and AVG) and I remember both of them finding some issues (trojan of some kind). The scanners said that they removed them but the blue screen still persisted. I am using Windows Vista 64 bit. Would it help to attach the minidump file? Or post something with the program Blue Screen Viewer or something like that, I saw some other post mention that. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

A:Blue Screen on startup

Download BlueScreenView:
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html
unzip downloaded file and double click on BlueScreenView.exe to run the program.
when scanning is done, go to EDIT - Select All
Go to FILE - SAVE Selected Items, and save the report as BSOD.txt

Seems my computer problems are not quite at an end, sadly. :/

My laptop won't boot normally- it'll appear to but give me a blue screen before finishing startup. The error screen reads that I should check if software is properly installed, to contact the software provider for updates, etc. It also has this: "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" near the top. At the bottom reads "Error: 0x0000000A (0x00000000, 0x0000001C, 0x804E1BP8)"

This started last night, and I think it has to do with the FLV converter I was downloading at the time. Upon clicking on the .exe, the entire computer froze for a moment before giving me that error screen. I can boot into Safe Mode and have already tried to use System Restore to fix the problem to no avail.

Any help/advice is appreciated greatly.

I just started my Dell the other day and as the subject says, it didn't boot and went to a blue screen which said something along the lines of.

PDEngine.exe application error
could not be written "0x7c918fea" to memory "0x000000010

it gave me options to start in Safe mode and a few others or to start at the last point where everything was ok. I choose this option and windows started without a hitch and I didn;t notice anything out of place or missing. I've done a few restarts since then and nothing out of the ordinary has happened since.

BUT, then today I was loading some more programs on my recently formatted laptop. One of them being Perfect Disk 8 (trial) and WinPatrol alerted me to the startup entries. One of them being PDEngine, the other PDAgent

I'm assuming Perfect Disk caused this error on the Dell. Anyone have any Idea as to what may have happened...now I'm afraid to use the program on either comp.

Any help/insight will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Andre

If that happened to me I would uninstall the program and not use it again. A disk defragmenter needs to be reliable or it can trash your system.
