Blue Screen Death on startup, but fine in Safe Mode

Q: Blue Screen Death on startup, but fine in Safe Mode

OK, ill try and make this short and sweet. A week ago my computer's power supply went out. I got a new power supply and now having issues. When I startup my computer regularly, it gets to my desktop and within 30 seconds or so of completely booting up (random, sometimes not even that far) I get the blue screen error and it reboots. This cycle will go on forever.
I am however, able to F8 and go into system restore, etc and the computer will stay powered on there forever. In fact, I am writing this post while in Safe Mode with networking.  But I am unable to actually run system restore. It will end up giving me an error no matter which system restore point I try and run.
anyone have any ideas? Really need to get this back up and running ASAP as I use it for work 

Preferred Solution: Blue Screen Death on startup, but fine in Safe Mode

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Blue Screen Death on startup, but fine in Safe Mode

Do a Clean Boot and see if this is related to a Service or Startup item.
***This is a diagnotic tool for Windows Vista, Windows 7, and Windows 8.  This will not repair your computer, but it may point to where the problem lies so that a repair can be made.***
Warning:  Disabling items in Services or Startup may leave your anitivius disabled until the process is ended.  For this reason I would suggest that you perform this process off line.
Step 1
(1)  Click on the Start orb, then type msconfig.exe in the Search programs and files box.  
(2)  When msconfig is seen in the pane above the search box and under Programs, right click on it, then click on Run as administrator.

If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, you should enter the password or provide confirmation. 
Step 2
(1)  Click on the General tab.   
(2)  Click the Selective startup option. 
(3)  Remove the check mark in the Load startup items  check box. 

Step 3
(1)  Click on the Services tab. 
(2)  Place a check mark in the Hide all Microsoft services check box, this will remove the Microsoft Services from the list but will still be running. 
(3)  Click Disable all, this will remove all of the check marks in the Services list, then click on Apply, then OK.  Click on Restart in the window that opens.
Caution:  I repeat, by disabling the Services your antivirus will not be active, for this reason I suggest that this process not be run while online.

If the problem does not reoccur after the reboot this means that there is a Service which is causing this proble, continue with the process of elemination to find the Service which is causing this in Option A.  If the problem does reoccur after the reboot go to Option B.
Option A
**The following is a process of elimination to find the Service or Startup item that is causing your problem**.  
*  If the problem does not reoccur after the restart go back to Services and place check marks in half of the boxes and restart the computer.  
*  If the problem still does not continue return to Services and remove the check marks that were added, then place check marks in the remaining half of the boxes and restart the computer.
If the problem resumes after a restart in one of these halves, you will procede with this process in the half where the problem occurs.  If this does not continue in either half you should repeat this process in Sartup. 
*  In the half of the Services that the problem is found, remove one check mark at a time and restart the computer to see if that  is the Service causing the problem.  Continue to do this with the Services untill the service causing this problem is  found.
Option B
Search Startup itmesIf the problem is not found in Services, remove all of the check marks, click on the Startup tab and repeat the search process there.
Caution:  If this is a laptop, make sure, you do NOT disable any keyboard, or touchpad entries.
If this problem is found post the Service or Startup item that is causing it. 
When you are finished using the Clean Boot go back to System Configuration and click on the General, then click on Normal Startup, click on OK, then restart your computer.

A:Solved: xp safe in safe mode fine...mormal mode blue screen

Start in Safe Mode and look in C:\Windows\Minidump for crash log files with a dmp extension, like Mini071008-01.dmp. Zip 4-5 of the latest ones and post here as a ZIP or RAR attachment. The log file contains information useful to determine what caused the error, most likely hardware.

On my computer, for about a little bit over a week now, I've been getting the blue screen that automatically restarts the computer. The blue screen text goes by so fast I can't even read it. I found out online that it was the SmitFraud, so I checked out the guide and downloaded the SmitFraudFix.exe. When I ran it in safe mode, it started working, but then it disappeared and all of my icons and everything on safe mode disappeared. The safe mode screen became a black screen with the words safe mode in the four corners, and I think there was the computer type or something on the top center of the screen. I couldn't run the fix properly in safe mode because after I tried running the fix, safe mode is not useable anymore.
What I tried to do was let my malwarebytes and my anti virus try to detect it, but they couldn't find it. I was thinking of system restoring my computer back 2 weeks, but I also couldn't find the restore points( as there weren't any). What can I do to get rid of the problem? It's really annoying.

Hi there

Before we start I need you to provide me some pieces of information:

1. Which is the version of your Operation System?

2. Do you have the installation CD of the Operating System?

3. Is Normal Mode completely inaccessible?

4. Do you have a clean computer on which you can download tools in order to be able to transfer them to the infected computer?

I am having a problem with a laptop, I am getting a blue screen when starting in normal mode, but if I start in safe mode it starts up and logs in fine.

I am not being told what is causing a problem, just to uninstall any new programs/hardware, but nothing has been installed at all.

Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Thanks for any help :)

Hi, 2 days ago I downloaded a windows update onto my packard bell netbook. When I try to restart my netbook it starts up as usual then says, continue with system resume and delete restoration data and proceed to system boot menu. When I press Continue with system resume, the BSOD appears. So, I restarted my netbook multiple times and then tried to access safe mode - the problem is, the blue screen of death appears before I get the option of putting it into safe mode.

If I've left anything out I'm sorry, I'm a major technophobe.

Please can anyone help me?

Thanks anyway!

Hi there,
I am hoping someone can help me with the BSOD. Happened last night.

Computer is Dell 9100.

I cannot enter into safe mode, have run system diagnostics for problems with blue screen - all pass. Run system diagnostics for hard drive - all pass. Cannot boot from CD upon restart.

Changed boot sequence to CDrom first, Hard drive second. This will boot up the CD and allow me to do a system recovery/repair. When I hit "R" to repair, it says there is no hard drive. SO WEIRD!

I can get into Dell Recovery using CNTRL and F11, but that will wipe my hard drive.

Anyone have any ideas about what could be going on? I am trying to preserve the hard drive.

PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you very very much

Im not really that great with computers so bare with me here. I recently cleaned my computer of a virus but I'm pretty sure it messed up some of my drivers because I got the blue screen of death. I got some kind of message saying which one it was and I was going to fix it but then I got the blue screen again, only this time I was unable to get back on my computer. I tried using safe mode but I got the screen yet again and my computer just restarted. If I could just get back on my computer I'm sure I could fix it, but I can't. I really have no clue what to do, please help. And again, I'm not that great with computers so please try to explain things simply. Thank you.

IntroI picked up a pretty nasty virus of some sort yesterday, and while I'm used to getting rid of spyware and malware, I've never encountered anything like this before, and I'm at a complete loss for what to do. Computer Specs I'm running Windows XP with SP3 on a 2.2 GHz Dell. Synopsis of the ProblemYesterday I was browsing through some websites when all of a sudden windows informed me that it was restarting itself. From that point forward as soon as I would boot up the computer and launch the internet connection and browser, the computer would start to freeze up. This is not the typical 'computer slowing down due to spyware' type deal though. Rather, the computer just freezes up and any programs that are running start becoming nonresponsive, although I can still move the mouse for some reason. Now, once it gets to this point where the programs have become nonresponsive but I can still move the mouse, if I click the screen a few times randomly then the computer totally locks up and the tower starts emitting a long beeping noise and the mouse stops moving, at which point I am forced to press the power button and turn it off.I realized that I had some sort of virus or trojan, and I tried to do some scans with the typical programs (Malwarebytes, TrendMicro, Spybot), but they would always either A) freeze up before completing the scan, or complete the scan without finding anything. I tried restarting in Safe Mode, but when I do this I get the blue screen of death almos... Read more

A:Virus Gives Me Blue Screen of Death When I Try Safe Mode

I was eventually able to find a workaround for my problem, and just in case anyone else ends up on this thread because they are trying to figure out how to fix a similar issue on their computer, this is what I did:

The breakthrough came when I saw a reference to a program on this forum called Flash Disinfect, by Subs, the same author of Combofix. For whatever reason this program was able to catch about 10 malware programs that were running on my computer and then remove them.

Prior to this point I was paralyzed because my computer would freeze up before I could complete any malware scans with other programs. I couldn't run a full scan of Malwarebytes, Spybot, Combofix, etc. I could hardly even run DDS and RootRepeal in order to generate the reports for this forum (it took me like 10 attempts). I couldn't even restart in safe mode.

However, once I ran the Flash Disinfect program for some reason my system started to stabilize, at least enough that I could then run Combofix. Combofix seems to have caught a rootkit, probably the one mentioned in the root repeal report above, as well as a number of other sketchy looking programs on my system. From that point forward it was just a matter of sweeping up the aftermath with full scans from Malwarebytes, SuperAntiSpyware, and Avira (all of which picked up different things).

At this point I'm still in the process of running additional scans and fully disinfecting that computer, so I'm still not even using it yet, but ... Read more

I'm on Windows Vista. I got the blue screen a few times. It rebooted, attempted system dump, repair, etc. I finally tried rebooting in safe mode. Nothing worked. I then used my brother's laptop, came to this (amazing, wonderful, saved my old computer in my college days!) site and tried to do some research before I posted with an inane question. I did this as suggested by a moderator:
Try this

1. Reboot the PC tapping F8

2. From the options select 'Last Known Good Configuration'NOT WORKING. Rebooting in safe mode won't even let me access the internet. It's been "identifying" the connection but I can't get online to run a Hijack This log or ANYTHING.

Any help, advice, etc. MUCH APPRECIATED!

I believe the problem started when I let my lenovo boot optimizer, which I always skipped until now, run its full course.

Computer attempts to start windows but fails, gives blue screen of death and restarts automatically.

Safe mode gives the same error.

Tried all options next to safe mode to no avail.

tried Windows start up repair - can't fix the problem

tried Command prompt bootrec.exe - can't fix the problem. DISKPART says all partitions and volumes are healthy, and it seems like it is not a hardware problem.

I have a backup, but it's on Crashplan... I can't access it until I can login to crashplan. I'm about to install ubuntu, and see if I can retrieve to an old backup through Ubuntu. Any better ideas?

I recently got the winhost.exe virus on my laptop. Booting to windows was working fine it loads into windows and ran fine except some programs were running slow. But this virus has disabled my virus protection programs and does not allow me to run any .exe files saying that "the file is not a valid win32 file". It prohibits or does not allow me to go to a different restore point and most importantly run in safe mode. I get a blue screen of death saying the computer has an error, virus or hard drive problem and shuts down when I tried to run in safe mode using the <f8> key.

In order to run in safemode some other technitian told me to 1) go run prompt 2) type msconfig 3) select the middle tab on top 4)check on safe boot box 5) click apply 6) restart. Hoping this would bypass the virus and go into safemode this is what I did.

Now I can not start the computer because every time it loads windows the system wants to go into safemode which the virus will not allow.

Please help me reconfig my windows so it starts again.

I have tried all the options on the boot option screen when pressing <f8> and none worked. Is there a way to load windows again without reinstalling?

Hi.  My wife has a Windows vista, SP2 32bit computer which has been sluggish for months - sometimes really bad, other times just a nuissance.
Yesterday I was trying to install Catalyst AMD suite for my video card, and teh installation got partway through and said installation failed.
The installer wouldn't let me click it closed, and CTL ALT DEL didn't bring me to windows manager, so I had to do a hard shutdown with the powerbutton, which is often the only way to shut that computer.
Following that, I've gotten several blue screens of death. 
I took out the hard drive and transferred all the important data to this computer.
Found the old Windows Vista disks and thought I'd do a fresh install since the system had been having problems anyway.  Was able to boot into safemode - but computer then shuts down fairly quickly (within 5-60 seconds or so) and this is now happening every time.
The fan is running and doesn't feel particularly hot in case, though happy to check temp if someone could tell me how - that is, if I can boot into safe mode with network connection - and didn't shut down before download /; instsall of software finished.
Any advice would be much appreciated.  (Note - I had also scanned the hard drive to see if it had a problem, and on 3 separate occasions, the computer powered itself down part way through the test (though everything had passed up till that point).  I scanned the hard drive when it wa... Read more

?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.

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x8A90B830, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)?

It would not allow me to start the computer in any safe mode or last good configuration.

I have no idea what caused this.
All scans show my computer as being clean.
My CPU usage is 100% after opening a web browser and stays that way after its closed.
When I try and boot into safe mode, it freezes before WinXP finishes loading drivers (before the login screen, when the screen its still in text mode)
Every time I turn off my computer the End Program window pops up, and it's rarely ever able to end the program. Usually I have to terminate whatever it was so I can shut the computer down.
Last night when I attempted to shut the computer down, it gave me a blue text mode screen telling me that a serious error had occurred, that the system was corrupted, and that I would have to restart the computer to see if WinXP could recover. It did, and it gave me a link to a microsoft website which told me to backup all my files.

A:Solved: Blue Screen Of Death Wont let me access safe mode

Read other 8 answers

My computer was working fine until this morning. I haven't recently installed any new hardware or software. It boots up normally except about 5 seconds into the Windows XP logo splash screen I get a Blue Screen of Death with a message that says a bunch of general stuff about whether or not this is the first time this has happened etc and gives me the error Stop: 0x0000007F (0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000). Then it automatically reboots and eventually does the same thing again.

I've gone into advanced windows options with F8 during boot up and tried going into every different kind of Safe Mode. When I try going through safe mode I get through a bunch of files then it asks me to hit ESC if I want to skip loading SPTD.SYS, regardless of whether I do or not it reboots a few seconds after.

The worst part of this is that when I try booting from my Windows XP CD it initially goes into the Windows XP CD Boot Up Screen and begins loading all the various drivers and such at the bottom of the screen and asking my to hit F6 if I want to load seperate RAID drivers or whatever finally it gets through all the files and says at the bottom and then says "Starting Windows" and after a bit it gives me the same blue screen of death.

So I can't even use the Windows XP CD to just reinstall windows on my HD.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

It boots up normally except about 5 seconds into the Windows XP logo splash screen I get a Blue Screen of Death with a message that says a bunch of general stuff about whether or not this is the first time this has happened etc and gives me the error Stop: 0x0000007F (0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000). Then it automatically reboots and eventually does the same thing again.

I've gone into advanced windows options with F8 during boot up and tried going into every different kind of Safe Mode. When I try going through safe mode I get through a bunch of files then it asks me to hit ESC if I want to skip loading SPTD.SYS, regardless of whether I do or not it reboots a few seconds after.

The worst part of this is that when I try booting from my Windows XP CD it initially goes into the Windows XP CD Boot Up Screen and begins loading all the various drivers and such at the bottom of the screen and asking my to hit F6 if I want to load seperate RAID drivers or whatever finally it gets through all the files and says at the bottom and then says "Starting Windows" and after a bit it gives me the same blue screen of death.

So I can't even use the Windows XP CD to just reinstall windows on my HD.

Anyone have any ideas on this?

A:Blue screen on startup, only Safe mode works

Some reasons for Blue Screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
Can you get into Safe Mode with Networking?
Check and post
TSG System Information Utility - found here.
Post the Minidump files
Create a new folder on the desktop and call it dumpfiles [or something similar]
Look in c:\windows\minidump
Copy the last 4 minidump files to that folder.
Close the folder and right click on it and select Send To Compressed [zipped] Folder.
Windows will compress the file and then save the new zipped file in the same location.
Attach the zip folder by using the 'Upload a File' button.
Run a Mem Test.
Scroll down to 'Download (Pre-built & ISOs)'
'Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)'

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

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

Guide to using Memtest86+
Run system file checker.
Click Start
Type cmd in search box
Right click cmd.exe to run as administrator.
Press Enter

I have a new machine that started acting up a couple of days ago. It was hard to get going in the morning with BSOD's at bootup but after a couple of restarts it would be ok for the rest of the day. Now it gets to the welcome screen and a quick flash of a blue screen that I can't read and it cuts off. It will keep cycling itself until I manually start it in safe mode. I ran Seagate Seatools to check the hard drive and it tested ok, I am running Memtest86 right now but it hasn't found anything yet. Let me know what log files you need and I will post them here.

thank you.

A:Blue Screen at Startup, only runs in Safe Mode

Try this in safe mode and when set try to boot into normal:

In order to figure out why you are getting random reboots, you need to make a settings change to your computer. Go to:

Start > right click on My Computer > Properties > Advanced tab > Setup and Recovery 'Settings'

UN check 'Automatically Restart'. Click OK.

Reboot your computer. Now when Windows detects a problem it will not automatically reboot, but rather give you a blue screen.

Blue screens are often called 'Blue Screens of Death' (or BSOD) by users, and 'Stop Messages' by Microsoft. We need to know the exact message you see when you get the blue screen. We especially are looking for a set of letters and numbers about half way down the page that take this format:


This is usually followed by a set of 4 similar numbers in parenthesis. For now we just need the first set of letter and numbers (before the numbers in the parenthesis).

Previously, when getting this message, I have been able to boot into safe mode. Now, I can't even get through safe mode as it hangs when trying to load Agp440.sys.

It BSOD'd the other night after I was browsing the internet. My computer was acting really sluggish, and I restarted it. Then I got the BSOD.

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

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

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

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

A:BSOD on startup; Safe-Mode fine

Read other 16 answers

Hi all,

About a week ago I started getting this BSOD on startup, happening at about the time consistently every time I boot Windows normally when the Windows login screen appears (if I login immediately, the BSOD happens right afterwards - sometimes the desktop can display in time; if I wait at the login screen, the BSOD will occur a few moments later before logging in).

It's the IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL error, and initially I thought I could solve this myself by searching online. Because I'm able to run in safe mode without any problems, I decided to try updating as many of my drivers as I could (thinking it was an outdated driver problem). However, this was only partially successful as some of the drivers require rebooting normally (not back into safe mode) to finish their installation (so I wasn't able to finish them, or else after booting back into safe mode it would say the driver installation failed).

In the zip file, in addition to the dump info, I also included a screenshot of the BSOD - it displayed long enough for me to quickly take a picture of it with my camera, if that helps.

I don't think this is related, but during the last successful session before my first BSOD occurred Windows Update downloaded and installed a fairly large service pack, I believe for Microsoft Office. Unfortunately, I just discovered that I never configured the system restore tool, so I can't go back in time...

Again, safe mode works like a charm (other than not being to inst... Read more

After a windows update patch about 3-4 weeks ago I started getting a weird error message saying I wasn't connected to the internet when the router is working for phones, blu rays, etc. Letting IE run its own 'fix' would say something about it not having a valid ip address and it reset the lan card and that would sometimes fix it or sometimes not (and I would need to reboot and try again). I did a system restore to a point before the windows update which fixed the issue for a couple days until the update pushed again and after that I get bsod screens on boot with the iqrl_not_less_or_equal more than 50% of boot attempts but no longer have the inexplicable unconnection to the internet. I've got a factory computer which I've not altered or opened in the 4-5 years I've had it. It boots fine in safe mode every time so far.

Please help, I'm way over my head trying to figure this out on my own and 4 hours of conversations with Microsoft tech support convinced me they should really just be called support plan sales reps.

1.I have tried opening in both "safemode" and "safemode with networking", found its working fine. I ran "msconfig" in safemode and unchecked some unwanted applications(nothing related to windows process) and tried again opening in normal mode.... Not worked

2. My internet works normally in safemode. Found some virus by running antivirus in safemode and cleared all the viruses.

I'm not a Windows whiz by any means, but I'm usually able to solve the problems I run into on my machines. This one's got me stumped:

I leave my Sony Vaio VGN-FW290J, running Windows 7 SP1, running one night while I go out for some errands. On my return, the thing has crashed pretty bad (I-can't-even-move-the-mouse bad). Whatever. I do a hard restart of the computer, decline safe mode, and the thing starts up just fine. Well, it was pretty slow, actually. Windows freezes up on me within two minutes (it's still loading up startup programs during that time). I entered into a cycle of startup, hard restart, startup, hard restart, ... until I was convinced of the permanence of the issue.

I became unhappy then, since I knew something was wrong, and this computer hadn't had a real problem in about 4 years of usage.

My first thought was to do a virus scan, so I booted into safe mode and started Avast to get cracking. Two "threats" were found in a full scan: both were very old files. I removed them and I still had the same problem.

I then deactivated every single startup program except the ones I thought were absolutely necessary. No beans. I currently have these set to autostart:
Alps pointing-device driver (Tracker Pad)
HD Audio Control panel (Audio Card)
Realtek Voice Manager (Audio Card)
Microsoft Windows Operating System

Windows XP on a Gateway. SP3. Recently the computer has completely frozen upon startup; I turn it on, it gets to the desktop, and BOOM- I get the hourglass, the hard drive light stays steadily on, and I can't click on or do anything. Sometimes I can see the regular cursor, but it turns into the hourglass when I scroll over the start button or anything down there on the taskbar. Sometimes everything loads up OK and then it freezes a minute or two later; sometimes it won't even load up everything before freezing (for example, I ahve Google Talk set to start with the start up and sometimes it can't even do that).

I am able to use the computer in safe mode and even connect to the internet in safe mode... but still, this is lame, lol.

When safe mode works fine but a normal boot fails, it usually means that a driver is at fault... I would suggest that you run a disk check. You can set it up in safe mode in Computer, and right click on the C drive. Select Properties, tools, check now. Check both boxes for trying to repair... Restart normally

I've been having this nasty problem since yesterday. I have no knowledge of viruses whatsoever so I am at a complete loss as to what to do.

I'm using a 7-year-old laptop and Windows XP. At a guess, the problem comes from my friend's USB. This is what happened: I inserted the USB and noticed a RECYCLER and some Shorcut to (1) etc. viruses. I thought this wasn't serious so I ignored it. An hour or two after that my Internet connection crashed (I don't know if it has anything to do with the virus). By checking randomly, I found out that gpedit.msc and my Antivir setup file also refused to run.

I then shut down my computer and have been unable to boot ever since. Every time I try to start up, I am faced with a dozen of "out of memory" pop-ups, all of them with "xxx" in their title bar. I tried closing them all, but new ones kept springing up. I opened Task Manager and found at least 20 processes named FONTS.EXE. I guess this was what caused the "out of memory" error, so I tried to end those processes, but they kept re-appearing over and over again.

The taskbar and the desktop icons won't show up. The screen is blank - there's just my wallpaper background, my cursor and the nasty error pop-ups. I can't run any virus check or do anything else.

I've also tried rebooting in Safe Mode, but it took me to the blue screen of death.

I have tried replacing the ram, and nothing changed, I tried clearing out the dust, nothing changed, I tried running a virus scan all clear, I tried re setting the whole computer, and still no luck, so please, please help me?
