Blue Screen after installing a driver

Q: Blue Screen after installing a driver

My computer had a virus that disabled all network adapters. So with the help of google, I found that replacing the ndis.sys driver may solve the problem. After placing a new ndis.sys in System32 and rebooting once, the computer just reboots every time it reaches the XP splash screen, even if I choose Safe Mode.
After disabling auto-reboot on system failure, I received this error:
***STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x80599ED1, 0xF8484826A4, 0XF84823A0)
Machine was running fine before the driver, not counting the network adapters.

With the help of google again, it appears that a Recovery Console repair install is the best option, but I thought I'd ask around. Any help is appreciated.

(Edit) To whom it may concern: this is a second PC, separate from the one mentioned in my Malware forum post.

Preferred Solution: Blue Screen after installing a driver

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Blue Screen after installing a driver

Replacing system files...is no cure for problems arising from malware. Ditto for the XP Recovery Console.

The malware problem needs to be addressed/neutralized first and foremost...before trying to move on.

Has the malware problem been addressed properly?

I have just installed a nvidia driver (84.21) to replace the version (77.77) I've successfully been running for several months now. Both are certified as compat with my 6800gt card. I seem to be able to instal it OK, files are copied across, the screen resets, the new driver is listed as installed uder the device manager and I get a message saying the new hardware has succesfully installed and I need to restart to finish installation. When I do, i go through the usual boot through to the windows start up screen (with flag), then I get a blue secreen with "please wait....." after 5 secs the dots stop appearing, then within 30 secs the HD stops. The keyboard etc is frozen. I gave it 5 mins then reverted to last good config, and tried again deleting all previous nvidia drivers, but still get the same result. I also tried a different driver (83. something) and still the same. I had norton disabled during installation.

What's happening and what can I do?- I want to run the new driver so I can install a newer graphics card that needs 83.** or above.

First of all, why were you installing the video driver? Was this an update or did you do a clean install of the os and needed the video driver installed?

If you were updating the video driver, did you uninstall the old one first?

I have been searching for a solution for a while now and everywhere but I still could not find one even inside Windows 7 forums. Please help me with this.
A couple of months ago, I upgraded from Windows XP to Windows 7 64 bit, but after installing the driver for my HD4770 and after the required restart of computer, the OS will go on the splash screen where you could see the small balls to form a windows logo. After that it should go to the blue page with "welcome" but all i see is 1/3 of the screen is that "welcome" page with some short white lines, while the other 2/3 is just black and the computer hangs up. I rolled back the driver under device manager to get it back to 'standard vga graphics adapter' and then downloaded a new driver from ATI (Catalyst 10.10) but I still get the same thing so I went back to Windows XP.

Recently, I found out that Catalyst 10.11 is already available so I installed Windows 7 64-bit again. I upgraded the BIOS of my motherboard, downloaded updates for Windows 7 first, then installed the driver for my HD4770. After the Windows 7 splash screen, I get a 'blue screen of death'. I rolled back the driver again and installed the driver using Windows update. At first, I was able to load Windows 7 until I see the desktop; however, there are some short white lines scattered all over and once I move my mouse, the computer hangs up.

Try this...

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 the new downloaded video card drivers -- not the ones on the CD.

Hi ElFeNoMeNo12,

What type of RAM have you put in? Are they both DDR3? Try removing each stick separately so that there is just 1GB at a time in your computer. It would also be great if you could fill out your System Specs. Some computers can't handle certain amounts of memory.

Hi, I'm really hoping someone can help me, I'm just about at the end of my wick!

I'm using Windows XP Home on a 2 year old system. It has 512MB RAM and an Asrock P4i65G motherboard. The only devices attached to the system are CD drive, keyboard, mouse and monitor.

Without warning, my computer failed to re-boot. It seemed to be stuck in a rebooting error- I could get to a 'windows has encountered an error' screen and given the option of starting normally, in safe mode, last know good configuration etc. At this point, the USB ports would freeze up and I couldn't select any of the options, although I could get into the BIOS..

I plugged in a PS2 keyboard, which worked so far as it didn;t freeze up like the USB one did. I could select safe mode, but all of the options just took me back into the same re-booting loop. I changed the hard drive for a different one out of a working PC and allowed me to start windows, but went to chkdsk and froze up at the end of the check.

I also tried changing the RAM stick and changing the motherboard with a new one of the same make and model. The same error occurred, even with a different hard drive, RAM and motherboard.

At that point I formatted the original hard drive and tried to reinstall Windows. it gets to the device driver stage of the installations and then I get a blue screen that seems to indicate a problem with one of the audio or video drivers. i can't get any further than ... Read more

A:Blue Screen after installing SP2

There are 2 common reasons for failures due to the installation of Service Packs
- malware
- outdated drivers.

I'd suggest that you scan your system for malware and that you visit the HP support website to update your drivers.

For a more specific analysis you'll have to upload the dump file to a file hosting service for us to have a look at. I like http://www.box.net for this purpose.
Once it's uploaded, you'll have to Share it, then post the link to it in your next post.

I have just helped a friend reinstalling Windows XP on his computer (MyBook L51A-10). I put in the Windows cd, I deleted the two partitions that it had and made one instead. After that I formatted the harddisk and the computer copied the files from the cd like it's supposed to. It restarted and showed the Windows "loading screen". And here comes my problem. The computer shows a blue screen with a 0x0000007B code. I know there already is a lot of problem definitions on the internet but I couldn't find any solutions for my problem.

So I tried to start from the beginning and re-formatted the disk. This time I didn't get any error code but it showed another blue screen with a message before it reached the loading screen. It said (my own translation from danish to english -->): 'Windows couldn't start because of problems with the configuration of the hardware to the harddisk' and some further words.

Now, what could the problem be? A hardware problem? A version of XP (SP3) that doesn't work on that particular computer?

Well...what is the origin of the disk used for the install?Are we talking Microsoft CD...are we talking media from an OEM (HP, Dell, etc.)?7B errors are quite common when some attempt installs, Google, 7B STOP.Is this a SATA hard drive?System manufacturer and model?MyBooks...are external hard drives.

I am trying to install SBS 4.0 on a P133, 80MB RAM, no CD-ROM, Linksys LNX100 NIC. System has 2 HDs, I loaded the 2 CDs for SBS onto D:\, removed primary partition in fdisk and then created a new one that is 1500MB with FAT 16. I went through the install process and it went through the DOS and Windows portions of the install just fine. After that it goes to reboot and run NT4 for the first time but on bootup I get a blue screen with almost the whole screen full of hex numbers and mixed in messages. Following is some of the key info from that screen:
...(build 1381) Service Pack (3)


Restart and set the recovery options in the system control panel or the /crashdebug system start option.
I have re partitioned the drive and installed this 2 times, the only difference being the selection of liscensing screen (first time I chose 'by server (2)' and second time I chose 'by seat')

How can I get through this? What am I doing wrong?

Hi guys, Ive been having huge problems with my friends computer which I built. I had built it and installed Vista 64, everything was going well till about 3 months in. I was getting bluescreens with errors regarding either the DLink DWA552 card, and the NVIDIA 8600GT. I figured let me switch over to 32 bit Vista because I had read about many problems with 64bit vista. So i did it and had the same problems. So finally I said lets switch to XP64, since I figured it is less likely to run into problems with an OS that has been around for much longer. Anyways while installing, I got BSOD again. The first one was an error regarding CLASSPNP.SYS and the second after I enabled PnP OS in the BIOS had no other reference to a file name. So I attatched pictures of the bluescreens, asking for your help on where to get started. Originally I thought maybe its just driver problems, but since I was installing while it crashed on me, I have no clue where to start from. I looked up the first error and saw that many people with Windows 2000 had it, and it was supposed to be fixed in their SP3. So see if you can make anything of these error please, thank you guys.

I've been trying to install the latest critical updates from Microsoft for the past month and everytime I keep getting the same error. After I let autoupdate detect and install what I need, the computer needs to reboot to complete the installation. When I reboot, the computer gets as far as the Win XP pro logo, just before the logon screen comes up, a blue screen appears with the following error message: "autochk program not found - skipping autocheck" After a few minutes the computer reboots and goes through the same cycle. The only way for me to actually get into windows is either through safe mode, or to pick the last configuration that worked option. After I get insto Windows, I uninstall the new updates and everything is fine again. I've tried to copy the check disk file from my XP CD into the system 32 directory, but that still didn't fix the problem. I think I've narrowed my problem to one of the following updates:

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to fix the problem?

By the way I'm running XP Pro with all updates prior to the ones that came out in the last month.
The error message appeared exactly as I wrote it, including the misspelled "autochk".

First post here, and I wasn't sure whether to put this under games or in here, so we'll see. I was recently trying to install Medieval Total War II onto my computer. I've had it installed before in the past, and it worked fine on my computer. I wanted to play it again, so when I went to install it it gave me the blue screen.

It said:

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


It then said something about disabling BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing, etc.

Then it had what I'm guessing is the error code:

***STOP: 0x00000050 (0x46263D6, 0x00000000, 0x804ED967, 0x00000001)Click to expand...

(I hope those numbers are right).
Now as far as my specs go, I have a Dell E510, 2 GB of Ram, Windows XP Professional SP3, Pentium 4 CPU 3.00 GHz. If there's anything else in terms of specs that I need to put down, let me know.

Then it says starting operating system from CD-ROM

Then an error occurs, it gives us the option of starting in safe mode, 2 other different types of safe mode, or normal startup.

My computer is basically naffed. I reset the BIOS and booted from CD, deleted my partition and when I install Vista, it just blue screens while it's expanding files!

Why has it came to this? Here's the long story before hand so you know what could be the problem

My brother bought a new computer and gave me his old one. His old was having 'BIOS' problems. The computer had XP at the time and it used to crash when you installed things like Chrome, change firewall settings, clicked on restore points,and blue screened also when you tried booting from CD etc. We managed to fix that apart from it still blue screened when booting from a CD.

As I managed to get on to the computer, I installed my Wireless Belkin Internet adapter, got all the latest updates and managed to boot Vista from a disc fine, deleted the partition, install Vista, Done. I had the same problem as before where it crashed when you installed Chrome, changed settings, clicked on restore points, tried installing Adobe Flash Player, etc. We fixed this by taking the CMOS battery out and resetting the BIOS by doing so.

We got all the latest Drivers with DriverFinder and after they were installed, I rebooted the computer and then after it was all done, a few errors, clicked off them etc. BLUE SCREEN. So we had to re-install a fresh copy of Vista again. No blue screens as BIOS was reset, but after doing windows updates, half through installing, you'd get a blue screen and the drivers would be c...

Today I installed new RAM, a 2GB kit of PC2-5300. Once i turned the computer on, it worked fine, until after a minute when a blue screen was on the screen about memory. It then reseted.

What could be the problem?

A:Blue screen shown after installing new RAM

I trust that you tried to match the original RAM's specs as closely as possible.

Also try re-seating the sticks. Make sure they are completely locked into their slots. Even the old RAM - you can move things putting the new sticks in.

The most obvious cause would be a bad stick of RAM. You test this by running a program like Memtest86+ - Advanced Memory Diagnostic Tool. Remove all RAM, then install one of the new sticks into Slot 1 and run the test for 3 to 5 passes. Do the same for the other stick. If you get any errors then you know which stick is bad.

Another cause could be a defective RAM socket. But you need to know that the sticks are good to begin with.

Hi, I bought a new SATA2 Hard drive off ebay, and installed it just a few minutes ago into my computer.
My primary hard drive is also a SATA hard drive, and I also have a SATA CD/DVD Rom drive.

After installing the hard drive, I immediately noticed the computer took allot longer to post, however, it continued to boot up, and got to the screen where it says windows is loading.
Immediately after this screen, the blue screen of death appears quickly, then dissappears.

I re-started the computer and took more notice of the sound of the hard drives as they started up, and noticed that the new hard drive sounded like it kept failing to start.

I turned the power off again, removed the power and sata connection from the new hard drive, and re-started the computer.
It started up as normal again...
(Before doing this, I double checked the boot device priority, to make sure it wasn't trying to boot from the new hard drive).
What could be the problem here? A faulty hard drive? perhaps the devices need to be installed in a certain order on the ports?

Heres what the ports look like on the mother board:
|__1___| |__2___|
|__3___| |__4___|
|__6___| |__5___|

The main one is plugged into number 1, the CD drive was plugged into number 2, and the new hard drive was plugged into number 4.

There is also an old hard drive installed on the IDE port, if that means anything...
Any Ideas?

I built a new computer out of the components listed on my profile. I have a friend who plans to lend me his Windows 7 SP1 disk soon, but I figured I would try and install Windows XP Pro just so I could use the computer until then. It is an MSDN disk, so it has multiple selections as to which operating system you wish to install. I choose Windows XP Professional SP2, and windows proceeds to load files to prepare for installation. The bar at the bottom says 'Setup is starting Windows', but then the screen turns black for a brief period before displaying a message that states 'a problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.' Under technical information, it says '*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)'
I have tried the following solutions to attempt to remedy this:Change the SATA setting from AHCI to IDE (it was already set to IDE and changing it from that to AHCI or RAID did not change anything)
Check to see if there is virus protection on the hard drive, as it will prevent you from installing an OS (the BIOS had no virus protection settings)
Try a new Windows XP disk, the one you have is corrupted (I tried four near-identical MSDN disks that had Windows XP on them, all yield the same error)
This only happened once and I have been unable to replicate this, but one time an additional error was posted under technical information that said something about PCI.SYS. What do I do about this? I've got... Read more

I know this is an old thread but I'll try posting anyway.

I am good until I click on Start in step 11 and then it goes to a blue screen with an error that says somethng like memory dump and it all just stops dead in it's tracks. I am using win 7 pro sp1 just bought a week ago on Sep 14, 2011 so it should be up to date. Does anyone have an idea why it would error out?

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.

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:

* 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:

* 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 head... Read more

Blue Screen after boot-up, after installing a new Graphics card Hello all,

I really hope someone can help me with this problem, since I have been spending already quite some time on this error. So here is the deal:

A friend of mine has quite a mediocre computer and he decided that he wants to play Company of Heroes (which is a game from 2008 I think). As expected, his old videocard wasnt good enough, so I helped him find a good graphics card in order to play this game ad perhaps also others. Its an older system so it has only a AGP slot.

So he bought a Sapphire HD3650 AGP. And because his old PSU didnt supply the power this card needs, I looked for an better PSU which he bought as well. But now comes the problem. The old drivers were deleted by using some driver sweeper program. After that, new ATI drivers were installed, but after this the system did not recognize the new videocard. If I went to device manager, the VGA onboard would be listed a screenadapter.

Apparantly, this is something that happens to more people, since ATI has a hotfix for this problem available, which I downloaded and installed. After the installation was complete, a reboot was required which I of course did. When rebooting, I got the blue screen for a short moment, just before one expects the windows log on screen to appear, after which it immidiatly reboots.

This keeps on happening. I am able to go in safemode. If I go to device manager and turn the graphicscard off (which is indeed recognized n... Read more

I'm trying to upgrade my OS to a 64 bit. I've tried two different installation discs and every time I try, I get the blue screen of death.
STOP: 0X00000050 (0XFFFFF98000062004, 0X0000000000000000, 0XFFFFF8000127AC2A, 0X0000000000000000)

A:Try installing OS and blue screen of death?

Hello Jasaguayo

My name is Vishal and I work for the Social Media and Community Team at Dell. The blue screen error code that you are getting means the system tried to access a nonexistent piece of memory, almost always due to:

• A driver trying to access a page of memory that is not present
• A system service (ex. virus scanner) failing in an exceptional way
• Faulty or incorrectly seated memory
• Corrupted data on the hard drive

Things to check:
1 If the Blue Screen error mentions a driver or library file, figure out what driver or program the file is a part of and either upgrade to the latest version or uninstall the driver or program.
2 Try running a full hard drive and memory diagnostic after reseating the memory and hard drive data cables.

This should resolve the problem.
