Blue Screen of Death and Orange Screen of Death

Q: Blue Screen of Death and Orange Screen of Death

Last month, kept getting blue screen of death with various errors at bottom: MEMORY_MANAGEMENT, CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION, IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Been happening sporadically before but amped up last month for a few days. Stopped until last night, this time I got an orange screen of death and the error was CRITICAL_STRUCTURE_CORRUPTION (win32kfull.sys).

Preferred Solution: Blue Screen of Death and Orange Screen of Death

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.)


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

Can anyone help?? Please?

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

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

I have never seen a screen like this in the 20 years I've had my own computer.

I had Windows 8 on a secondary drive as a dual boot with Windows 7 temporarily as I migrated to Windows 8. I somehow messed up either the boot loader or somehow corrupted the Win8 install for which I'll skip the details for now. But it was just as I was starting to decommission my Win7 install (I removed one drive from the 2-drive mirror running Win7 but figuring the single disk left would still run in a 'degraded' status. It ended up messing something up.).

I've been running bootrec /fixmbr, fixboot, scanos, and rebuildBCD from my Win8 USB stick and it says it completed but no luck on booting. I get either 0xc0000001 or 0xc000021a errors. Auto repair can't fix it.

I tried running this command, "bcdboot c:\windows /s c:", and got the screen shown in the attachment. White vertical lines on an orange background.

The only drives connected is the Win8 SSD sata drive and a DVD drive on IDE. I disconnected the DVD drive and the Win8 flash screen would appear with the circular dots but would freeze right there.

I don't have logs or screenshots to show but the single partition on the SSD is marked as active via diskpart (no system reserve partition), bcdedit shows c:\windows as the default location of the OS, diskpart shows the partition as c:, but the DVD drive is disk0, and the SSD is disk 1. Would that be a problem?

It is like it can't find the winload.exe file but I verified it exists... Read more

A:'White Vertical Lines on Orange Screen' Screen of Death

Have you tried putting the removed drive back in?

It looks like a video card problem (hardware) to me - but it shouldn't be that because you're able to use the USB Startup Repair functions (am I right in this assumption?). That means (to me) that it's likely to be a video driver problem (?).

Can you attempt to boot into Safe Mode? If so, what happens?
Does the screen problem show up after POST is completed? If so, at what point does it show up?

Hi, last two days mainly when watching video I experience suddenly the screen of death of orange color. The laptop doesn't restart though I do hard reset. I can't say where is the problem. Probably it's something to do with video card. I have both Intel (R) HD Graphics 530 adapter the driver of which I just updated and also GeForce GTX 950M card whose drivers I regularlly update through the NVidia experience. Can it be any other problem? Recently after one of the BSODs I foolishly run reimage repaire program which is recommended throughout Internet and I'm afraid that it too messed with my hardware.

Hello everyone.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L450D-13X computer for the kids, and for the price it's a good laptop. Have had no issues with it until two weeks ago when the screen froze for the boys whilst playing a game and downloading a program from the net. Had to do a force shutdown and since then we have a BSoD on every boot-up. This is what we have tried:

On 'Starting Windows' we are given an option of either 'Launch Startup Repair' which ends up as BSoD or 'Start Windows Normally' which reverts back to the 'Starting Windows' option list.
Any attempt to enter 'Safe Mode' results in BSoD.
Attempting to boot an ISO of the Windows Recovery Disk on a USB key (we did highlight it and promote it to the top) results in BSoD. Borrowing a proper Window 7 installation DVD and highlighting this as an option results in BSoD.

In fact, the only option we used that threw up something different was using advanced boot options. On one of these options we got the Blue Screen of Death with the following information:

Disable Bios Memory Options such as caching/shadowing

Tech info

Stop: 0x000000ED (0xFFFFFA80023C2CDO 0xFFFFFFFFC0000185 0x0000000000000000 0x0000000000000000)

I don't mind erasing the hard drive and starting again, there's nothing on it that's critical. I'd very, very much appreciate a steer on this. Checked the web for stuff and nothing seems to assist in any other options. I am not particularly tech literate but can follow instructions.

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

Dell xps m1430 laptop w/vista (32).

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

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

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

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

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

Today I booted my computer up to be promoted with a black screen, I gave it a good half an hour before forcing it to shutdown, to which when I booted it back up. Was then promoted with a blue screen about the video card not being able to lead, that happened twice.

I then booted it into safe mode, fiddled around with the drivers to see what was going on, after restarting it again, I got the same black screen, this kept on happening. I then concluded my best solution was to install XP, this worked the video card runs. So the card is not dead, but there are multiple blue lines going down the screen in 4 columns. After going into the device manager I saw that it claimed it was not installed, then I went to Google and downloaded the driver, after installing the computers goes to the same black screen that I got on windows 7.

I have no clue what the problem is, so any help would be most appreciated. Also I tried installing Linux, but after getting though then loading screen of the installer, it goes to the black screen. At the moment in am on my tablet so sorry if there are so many mistakes. I'll try and get some photos of how it looks.

Hi Sean,

I don't like to say it, but it sounds like the graphics card is dead. I had the same issue on an old 8800gts, it would work until I installed the drivers, then I would get very bad artifacts/lines down the screen.
I tried it on 2 different PC's with the same end result once the drivers were installed.

I have a Dell Latitude 5175 (Core m5-6Y57, 8GB ram, 256GB SSD) which bluescreens during full screen video playback such as Netflix or Windows media player with a Driver_power_state_failure, it doesn't happen straight away but usually after around 10-15 minutes usage.

I checked the minidump file which suggested the Intel graphics card driver was to blame, I updated that to the latest one from Dell which made no difference, updated the chipset driver, bios and then installed the latest graphics card driver from Intel again with no difference, if anything it's worse now.  The issue also occurs when the tablet is docked or when it's not docked although in normal day to day usage, it seems fine.

I've found references to this problem on some other machines, noticeably the Surface Pro 4's but not really any solution.  The next step is to try a clean build but thought I'd see if there's anything else I can try first.  The machine is out of warranty and while it's always occurred I've just lived with it as I incorrectly through the PC had a three year warranty.

Before i describe the problem i would like to make it clear that i would like to recover as much as possible. This problem occurred playing a game called Empires V2.1. It is a steam half 2-death match mod. I had problems in the past however i didn't not consider them problems the screen froze when the game changed map. However when it froze it wouldn't respond to Ctrl+Alt+Delete or Ctrl+Esc or the start menu button. I pressed the power button and restarted it that way. However this is when the problem occurs and i can't over come it. It starts with a normal dell screen and the loading bar crosses at the bottom as normal. Then it goes to a black page with a blue line across the top with white writing saying www.dell.com. A line (programming maybe it appears and disappears rapidly). It then goes to a black screen saying something along the lines of We are sorry for the inconvenience but windows failed to start properly. It then gives you options and no matter which option I choose I still get a blue of screen of death saying the following;

All these types of crashes can happen independently of what I'm doing, It has happened while burning dvds with Nero, scanning with anti-virus, browsing the net, or even while I'm asleep and only the bittorrent client is up.

I have a computer running Windows 7. Last night the computer was running fine. This morning when I turn it on, i get a black screen. To fix the problem I conducted a system restore. After it finished restoring, the computer restarts and everything worked fine. To make sure if everything was in working order, I restart it again. After the "Starting Windows" screens comes up, I get the Blue Screen of Death. I can't even read what the error says because the computer just restarts itself. I did not connect anything new to the computer. I performed a hardware diagnostics to see if it was a hardware failure but no error was found. I can't even get into safe mode. The SFC.exe will be my next step.

I'm sure everyone is familiar with the popup in Vista where your screen is grayed out and you must "Continue" or "Cancel" to run an administrative function... Well... My copy of vista has decided that it would be much more humorous to give the user the gray screen without the dialog box. Quite annoying. The only way to get back is to CTRL ALT DEL, and then just click cancel when that screen comes up. But in the meantime, I pretty much can't make any changes to my computer because I don't receive the continue / cancel dialog box...

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

Can anyone tell me how this can be solved?

A:Solved: Blue screen of death after welcome screen

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

If the problem remains, start by checking the memory.

In Vista you can do this by running mdsched.exe

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

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

I can run a debugging utility on the dump files if you do this:

1 > create a new folder on the desktop and call it "dumpcheck" or whatever you like
2 > navigate to c:\windows\minidump and copy the last few minidump files to that folder. *this assumes 'c' is your boot drive, if it is not, subsitute accordingly
3 > close the folder and right click on it and select Send to Compressed (zipped) Folder.
4 > use the "manage attachments" in the "advanced" reply window to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

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

I've gotten two blue screens recently and I can't figure out why.

It happened, both times, when I was playing a hi-def movie with Media Player Classic.


abit IP35 Pro mobo
Intel E8400 cpu
EVGA 8800GT gpu
Scythe Ninja heatsink
Corsair HX520 psu
8GB Corsair RAM

I've tested the memory and it seems fine, as do my hard drives. I've remounted the heatsink on the CPU.

Should I try updating the BIOS on the motherboard, since there are known problems with my cpu and mobo? Would that help? The only know problems are with temperature reading, and a BIOS update is said to fix them.

I had Windows check for a solution and it said there was most likely a hardware problem - RAM, CPU, power supply, or motherboard. I was hesitating to update the BIOS, but if it's a temp. problem with CPU, then I don't have much of a choice.

Here's what was in the pop-up window after I rebooted Windows:

I have tried to reboot in Safe Mode and 'Last Known Working' mode but the same blue screen appears.

As I dont have a XP Home install disk (only boot disk supplied with laptop), I could not repair my registry so I have installed a parallel version of Windows XP Pro that came with another PC. I can access the hard disc so I will be able to back up most of my files BUT I cannot access the Documents and Settings of my user from the original OS because I selected 'Make this Folder Private' when I made the account.

Does anyone know of a way to disable the 'Make This Folder Private' option on an account that is on a parallel version of XP?

Causes could be Device driver or memory

Causes could be hardware/memory, service/driver, antivirus software or NTFS corruption

Once written to CD, boot your PC with the CD and run Memtest. Allow the test to run through at least 3 passes or until it gives errors. If you have more than 1 memory module run the test on each module separately.

2. You can also check your hard drive for any errors (NTFS corruption). To do this go to Start -> Run -> type chkdsk c: /r -> click Ok . When asked if you want to force a dismount say No. When asked to schedule the check at the next startup say Yes. Restart your PC to allow chkdsk to run.

3. You can also uninstall any antivirus programs you have temporarily just to see if they are causing your problem. If you want try installing Microsoft Security Essentials in the interim (http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/)
(Do you have any an antivirus program installed, and if so which one?)

4. If the above does not solve your problem copy the minidump files... Read more

A coworker of mine brought me his computer telling me that it will not start up.
I turned on the computer and it goes thru all the startup and gets to the Windows XP splash screen. At that point the screen goes black and then it turns to the Blue screen of death with the following error code:

stop: c0000135 {unable to locate component}
then it says it was unable to find "basewmbaw32" and to try and reload the application.

I have searched the internet for this "basewmbaw32" file to no avail.

I also tried starting the computer in safe mode and after I select safe mode, I get the same BSOD.

Any ideas on what or how I can fix this??

Thanks in advance.

If your friend has his XP disk you could attempt to do a system restore using the recovery console. It's basically a last ditch attempt before having to either do a repair or reinstall.

For a few weeks now I will randomly get this blue screen. When this blue screen problem started my computer has been very slow as well and and quickly got slower and slower. I do not remember downloading or installing anying new in the last month. I can Virus scan but only the fast scan, if i slow scan i get the blue screen a minute of scanning. Even Ccleaner does not work properly. It will clean everything but temp files.
I already backed up my files on a flash stick and was prepared to use my system backup but it was deleted.

Anyone know how I can fix this problem?

Registry cleaners are extremely powerful applications that can damage the registry by using aggressive cleaning routines and cause your computer to become unbootable.? Not all registry cleaners are created equal. There are a number of them available but they do not all work entirely the same way. Each vendor uses different criteria as to what constitutes a "bad entry". One cleaner may find entries on your system that will not cause problems when removed, another may not find the same entries, and still another may want to remove entries required for a program to work.Please post the make and model of this computer.? Not all registry cleaners create a backup of the registry before making changes. If the changes prevent the system from booting up, then there is no backup available to restore it in order to regain functionality.

Hey everyone,

I'm new here...and I am running Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit. It is a Dell Laptop. I've been getting the Blue Screen of death and whenever I shut the laptop lid the computer decides to restart itself. I went into power settings and changed the "lid" settings to "do nothing". That did not work. The error report is this:

Problem signature
Problem Event Name: BlueScreen
OS Version: 6.0.6001.
Locale ID: 1033

Files that help describe the problem (some files may no longer be available)

View a temporary copy of these files

So then I read somewhere to do a "dump check" and I did that using command prompt and after saying "your debugging is not using the correct symbols" a million times it says that:

PROBABLY CAUSED BY: ntoskrnl.exe (nt+4303b1)

ANYONE HAVE ANY IDEAS? This laptop is really new and I need help.

I turned on my computer this morning and started having problems. First I got BSoD with error message Driver_IRQL_Not_Less_or_Equal 0x000000D1 and it rebooted. A checkdsk came up so I figured OK no problem. Then it restarts and I get BSoD again with error code 0x0000008E and another restart error 0x0000007F. I've tried getting into safe mode all it does is reboot asking which mood I want to boot in. I've tried doing a repair and the Blue screen just come up in the middle of windows checking the system. I'm using windows xp. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

I am new to forum but could use some help. I have the Dell Inspiron 531s (XP operating system) desktop and recently encountered the "unbootable boot volume" Blue screen of death!! It will not reboot at all. I was told I need to get a free disc from Dell but they offer a free download of the recovery disc for that XP Operating System. Obviously, I can't download it from my Dell Inspiron but was wondering if I can download the recovery download to a disc or thumbnail drive and then download it to my computer. Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I have been experiencing the following errors for weeks and still no clue of how to cure it despite of searching through all the websites and asked many computer technicans. If anyone can give me help I would be very appreaciated.

My computer will reboot itself about once every hour, giving me blue screen of death and the following error message :

Stop: 0X0000008E (0XC0000005, 0XBF80554E, 0XF7626B0C, 0X00000000)
Win32K.SYS ? Address BF80554E base at BF800000, Date Stamp 45f13f6.

I couldn't find any similar errors in website but I suspected that it might be caused by bad ram or display driver. So I installed a new 1Gb DDR Ram, used a working display card taken out from another pc, and updated my display driver. Still no luck !! I then partitioned and reformated the two hdd (each 160G), reinstalled windows XP (with SP2) but still could not cure the error.

The following is my computer configuration :

Intel P.4 2.8Ghz
Two 512MB DDR PC3200 Ram (forgot what brand)
Two Seagate 160GB Hard Drives (7200 / 8MB Serial ATA / EIDE)
One external 320GB Hitachi Hard Drive (7200 / 8 MB Serial ATA /EIDE)
One external 80GB Ximeta USB/Ethernet Netdrive
500W Power Supply (bought separately after the one came with computer died)
ATI Stealth Radeon 9200SE with 128mb (with VGA & DVI connectors)
Linksys Wireless G Router (WRT54G)
