BSOD after windows logo with or without safe mode

Q: BSOD after windows logo with or without safe mode

Hello everyone,

I am having issues after playing Diablo 3 last night. When I was exiting the game my screen froze up and I couldn't press any keys and I was currently in vent where I heard one of the guys voice on repeat for 10 minutes straight so I decided to do a hard reset. After the first restart the windows logo would pop up and begin loading. Then my BSOD happen at that moment. I tried restarting in safe mode as well to no avail getting the same BSOD. I also decided to switch off my disk drives one by one but the same BSOD happens as soon as the windows logo appears for several seconds. I also switched my RAM around thinking it was a faulty RAM slot or stick but same results. This is the BSOD that flashes before my computer restarts:

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
the verification of a KnownDLL failed. System process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000428 (0x008246d0 0x00000000). The system has been shut down.

I'm really not sure how to go about solving the underlying issues and any suggestions would be great. Thanks for reading! And let me know if there any questions you might have.

Preferred Solution: BSOD after windows logo with or without 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.)

Hi,

I recently repurchased a computer off my brother who I sold to a while ago. I have the HDD from back then and simply swapped his HDD for mine. However, the computer simply loads up to the windows logo and then BSOD, and I can't pause the screen or get a good look at the error. Even in safe mode the same thing happens. I've repairing my PC with the windows 7 CD and sfc check using CMD but nothing works.

The only thing I can think of is the video card was upgraded and the drivers are messing up. However i have no idea how to install them as when i download them, they are in .exe format and you cant install drivers that are in exe format. When i plug my brothers HDD in it loads perfectly.

if anyone could please shine some light on this issue itd be much appreciated. thanks!

Hi guys,

first off, I imagine you get loads of people here who register to immediately start asking questions. I understand this must be rather frustrating. I can only hope you guys are used to it and thank you in advance for your time and advice.

Before explaining all details of my system and what I tried already etc., I would like to start with a quick question:

I get a BSOD immediately after the windows logo comes up (Xp PRO SP2), rebooting over and over. Booting in safe mode works fine (I'm using it now)
Could the problem be my power supply? It started making strange noises a few days ago so I suspect it could be the cause. The noises stopped now tho.

So could a bad P-S cause BSOD with normal boot, but still enable use of safe mode?

If the answer is yes I will buy a new PS first and test.
If the answer is no I will elaborate on my problem, specs and the things I tried already.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Hi, All of a sudden a day before, my computer froze and when restarted it started exhibiting horrendous symptoms-1. windows logo appear,then2. blank screen and no cursor login etc nothing display just sits thereAfter that, I tried to do startup repair but failed.Coming over to Safe Mode it is working fine.I also tried bunch of repairs from there still nothingused the clean boot from msconfig to see if any software causing issue or conflicts and did a system restore, still nothing.checked device manager and there is no exclamation point either that may depict hardware failure.My recent activity-installed "Advanced System care 9" 2 days back but have now removed using safe mode.1 more point it has been a month since my primary HDD is showing SMART error.but if safe mode is working can't we get normal mode backup and running.Please help me out of this conundrum, Any help would be sincerely appreciated.possible options I have in my mind-1.get new HDD and reinstall os2.format existing HDD and install fresh copy but doubt if this issue might returnreadily looking out for other options and would prefer rectifying old one first so that I can avoid a long tedious process of reinstalling everything from scratch.Sincere thanks to any responses.

Hi, today I decided to restart my PC but it got stuck at the "logging off" screen, so I just held down power button to turn it off.
When I tried turning it back on, it got stuck at the windows logo. Safe-mode won't work, nor will system recovery.Note: I had not made any hardware changes in the past 3 years. I also don't think I have made any big software changes in the past couple of weeks.
 
________________________________
What I was doing before I decided to reboot:
I was reinstalling different versions of firefox because I was having flash issues (FF and Flash arent very compatible on some of the newer FF versions)
 
So I installed 30.0 and it asked me reboot to finish the installation and here I am. I don't think it's related, might be just a coincidence.
_______________________________
Full details of what is happening:
Normal boot-up freezes at the windows7 logo. The animation freezes too. PC does not auto re-boot.
Safe-mode gets stuck while loading components. Notably at storport.sys (not sure if I spelt that right) PC does not auto re-boot.
System recovery freezes after a while during the © Mircosoft Corporation screen with green loading bar. PC does not auto re-boot.
The little light that flickers when the PC is doing something is not lighting up during the loading screens. It flickers for the first couple of seconds and then just stops (or very faintly flicks every 3-4 secs) The loading screen animation then freezes after ~10-15 seconds.

Hi guys, I need help on my Acer 4750G here. I've been lurking around the internet lately searching for this problem's solution. But no answer

Here's the story:
So this morning my I started my laptop, it kinds of frozen/lagged so I had to shut it down via holding the power button 'till the screen shuts off. In school (I'm still 13-14) I turned it on, the booting took an unusual time to start. Then BAM! Bluescreen flashed about 1/4 second I tried to start it via safe mode, it stucks on the driver called "classpnp.sys". Seconds later, the same flashing bluescreen happened.

I've done these:
-System restore (It seems to do something, it gave me no result either)
-Memory Diagnostic Tool (It says no problem found, damn)

I've also done writing this line via recovery's command prompt:
rename c:\windows\system32\drivers\classpnp.sys classpnp.old
And no result either...

I'm not sure if the troublemaker is the hardware or driver. I might want to get it to the manufacturer's shop, but it'll be costy...

Anyway here's the bluescreen code written by me, I'm using my sister's netbook so no copy-paste thingy:

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

If you are overclocking STOP.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* 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:

Hi everyone,As the title suggests, I'm getting a black screen after the windows logo appears. At first, there's no cursor, but if I put the computer to sleep and turn it back on, I get a cursor when it wakes up--still a black screen though.Here are my specs:CPU: AMD Hexacore 1090TRAM: 8GB GSkills RipjawsMB: Gigabyte GA-78LMT USB3GPU: MB Integrated Radeon 3000 SeriesUnbootable HD: Seagate 2 TB Barracuda Windows 8.1Bootable HD: 7 year-old 500GB Hitachi Windows 8.1Here's how it went down: I was watching HBOGo on Chrome, then went to the Netflix Windows 8 app (don't judge my lethargic chain of events). However, Netflix immediately closed and wouldn't start. I figured it was something with the graphics, so I restarted my computer. After the restart, for some reason, it ran Chkdsk on my other HD. After running that, it went through my normal startup and blacked out after the logo. I ran a bootlog and found that dxgkrnl.sys loads once, then attempts to load another 4 times and fails each time. Other than that, everything loads correctly. Then I deleted some AMD stuff (perhaps stupidly) and I get more errors in the bootlog, from AMD stuff. I'd like to just clear all the AMD stuff and just have the bare Windows drivers load.Here's what I've tried:1) I've tried startup repair, which attempts some fixes, but fails.2) I tried to enter Safe-mode and low graphics mode, the computer simply launches into "Automatic Startup Repair" and fails after the "Diagnosing PC" dialogue.3) Reset my BIOS...

Background: Have had a few failed boots recently, but ignored these as XP would boot up fine after pressing reset. Had a power failure (OK, OK, I switched it off at the wall by mistake as it was shutting down) - since then, can't boot.

Situation now:
It gets as far as the Window XP logo with the blue blobs scrolling and then restarts. Sometimes I get the "Overclocking failed..." error, sometimes a CPU temperature failure message. Can't start in any of the safe modes, can't start with last good config, can't start normally.

Tried repairing / recovering using the XP disc, but it didn't recognise my Windows install on my C: drive. It only recognised an old install on my D: drive. Cancelled the recovery. Went into XP set up, which discovered the C: drive but said it was empty and couldn't recognise the format (FAT or the other one N-something something). Booted up in old D: drive XP set-up (successfully) and managed to save my personal files onto a memory stick.

Hey everyone!
Sorry if I'm posting in the wrong place - not sure what exactly is wrong!
So my computer was working - I was playing a game when the system just froze up. I manually restarted and once I got to the Windows XP logo screen (where the blue dots go running across in that little bar underneath), the computer just stayed on that screen no matter how long I waited. I've restarted several times and still keep getting stuck on that screen.
I tried going into safe mode to see if I could maybe do a system restore or just look to see if I could figure out what's wrong, but all I get is a black screen with "safe mode" in all four corners of the screen and my mouse cursor. Same thing when I try to go into VGA mode.
I'm wondering if my video card died? The computer runs fine if I'm just doing normal things like watching a movie or just surfing the Internet. However, I'll play a game and often times it'll do the freeze-up thing and I'll have to restart. But every time that has happened, the computer started back up normally - until now. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much!

Hi,

I have been trying to repair my XP installation with an XP CD. Once the repair completed and restarted the computer, it now hangs at the XP logo screen. The blue boxes scroll across the loading bar, and occasionally slow to a halt. After about 15-20 minutes, a blue screen with a small windows logo in the upper left corner tells me that windows setup is restarting. This hangs for about 10 minutes, then goes to a black screen.

When I try to run Safe Mode, I get a message that "Windows setup cannot run in safe mode", and must restart.

I would appreciate very much if anyone can help me through this problem.

Thank you very much,

I have a PC and its my work machine (music production) and yeah i know its bad but i have the internet on it. I have one folder that has lots of really important work on it that i would hate to lose.

I had an issue with a trojan/virus a few months ago and finally resolved it but it looks like its back a bit.

The problem is i get a 'blue screen of death' everytime i try to boot into Windows XP in both normal and safe mode. My restore points are all gone and i've tried Repairing the OS several times and that had no effect. Still getting the BSOD.

STOP: 0x0000007E

I've tried replacing my drivers folder and still got BSOD. And i've checked to see if its a problem with my RAM by only using one stick at a time. No changes, still BSOD. And lastly i've tried creating a bootable USB drive with UBCD and cannot get it to boot from USB.

I have a macbook to work and post with. Unfortunately it makes things a bit more difficult.

Lastly, if i cannot get into windows, a solution to get a folder or two from my harddrive to a usb drive or external HD would be helpful.
I'd appreciate any help! Thanks!

It started when my desktop froze after a video,(no virus on my comp) so i just let it be for about an hour and it didnt budge so i decided to manually shut it down (which i never do, and i've only done this once to this computer). So when i started it back up again, it showed the BOIS screen but when it went to the xp logo loading screen, nothing was there except for a black screen. I went into that F8 Menu and tried everything, on safe mode it would just stop loading files up to Mup.sys. Ive tried to run off the Re-installation disk but it would just go to *Setup Starting Windows* and then freeze again. I've foubnd that there was a problem with the NTDLR file but i already fixed that with a boot floppy, but it really didnt do anything because i still have the black screen problem.

and then it just load a bunch of files and then stops and freezes at Setup is Starting Windows

Hi, this morning my computer randomly locked up and needed to be restarted. Now it will not boot normally, only in safe mode. When attempting a normal boot, it sits on the normal Win7 loading screen for 4-5 seconds and then goes to a black screen with the computer still running. No error messages, no BSOD, mouse/keyboard are dead. The only way to get any response is to power off then back on.

I have nothing plugged in except for the mouse and keyboard (they both work) - I also unplugged my storage HD with no result. I have reset the Bios to default settings and optimal default settings - no luck. The whole computer is relatively new (2 weeks old), but I have not installed any new drivers or hardware since the initial setup. Windows automatic update is on (This is probabyly the culprit? I don't know for sure)

Originally when running the startup repair, I was getting a badpatch error. Now I'm getting ExternalMedia. I can provide the details if needed for the repair failure message ( just need to run it again)

I've looked through a lot of tutorials on this site, so far:
-Turning off processes in safe mode and trying a "clean boot" does nothing - it still freezes at the same point.

-I ran both an antivirus and malwarebytes scan in safe mode - neither found anything.

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?

Hello my fellow techies!!

I have spent the last few days working on my friends Sony Vaio PCG-7184L(which by the way is not listed anywhere on sony's website). It runs windows 7 64bit and it freezes immediately after the Windows logo starts it's animation and there's about an inch of the top of the screen that is filled with weird colored lines. So I told him sure, I'll fix it, it's probably just a virus and should be fairly simple. I will list in sequence what I have done so far to diagnose/fix the issue. One more thing, it started doing this freeze up thing the same day he got it back from the Geek Squad at Best Buy, who were doing a simple update and cleaning from what my friend told me. OK, here's what I did...

1. Tried booting into safemode, froze, on hal.dll, with same colored lines at top of screen
2. Tried booting into ERD Commander 2k8 and froze at the same spot.

Hi All,
 
I'm an experience computer user working in technical support and system administration in linux environment. 
 
This issue has me stumped.
 
My pc is refusing to boot, it will throw a BSOD moments after hitting the loading windows screen.
 
Start up recovery prompts to system restore, once this is complete it restarts with the same effect.
 
 
Repairing from the windows system disk has the same effect.
 
When booting into safe mode, the system will BSOD when loading aswRvrt.sys.
 
All BSODs happen too fast to read anything, not dumping physical memory.
 
This all started happening after a seemingly random BSOD which happened last night.
 
The only change to the system that I effected was installing a newsgroup reader this was done several hours before the first BSOD.
 
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

This has been extremely frustrating for me. I come home from working and my cousin tells me my computer keeps going blue and restarting. So now my computer will only run in safe mode. I have spybot/Kaspersky(won't run in safe mode)/AVS4 none of them seem to do the trick. From what I can tell it seems to be the win 32 virus, every time I get rid of it it seems to come back. I would get rid of it then my computer would be fine now it won't run in normal at all.

This is the message I get on blue screen (no images sorry)

Is there anyway I can fix this without going out and buying a new dvd drive/usb?

Also im running windows 7 ultimate and I get blue screen of death when running GMER in the middle of scanning so i cant upload a log from it. I can tell theres a rootkit installed atleast two because before it crashes it shows two on the hardisk along with other minor ones

My computer has been stable for years, however recently I have been getting BSOD when doing any task. Windows will sometimes load to the desktop and I am able to watch video, run windows score, check email, etc before it will BSOD. Other times, it will BSOD before getting to the windows login screen.
When I use safe mode, it logs in and stays there - no BSOD.
I have tried removing all extra hardware in the machine, however this has had no affect. I have also tried one stick of RAM, then another, both BSOD.
I've attached the minidump files I have. Please let me know if you need more.

A:BSOD using FULL windows 7, no BSOD using safe mode

Your normal crashes are typically 0x101 BugCheck codes: STOP 0x101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT troubleshtg
Your Verifier enabled crashes indicate network related problems. Your network adapter drivers may need to be updated from your motherboard support site, the wireless adapter manufacturer, or from your system manufacturer (Dell, HP, etc.). It may also be a problem with avast!

Disable Verifier: Start Menu -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Right click Command Prompt -> Run as administrator -> Type the following command and then Enter:verifier /reset-> Restart your computer.

Uninstall avast! with the avast! uninstall utility, download a fresh copy of the installer, install fresh.

If re-installing avast1 does not work, uninstall avast! again with the avast! uninstall utility and replace with either of these setups:Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows coupled with Malwarebytes. Do not start the free trial of Malwarebytes. Just use the standalone version, update it, and scan your computer once a week with Malwarebytes and with Microsoft Security Essentials.

Good and Free system security combination.

After installing your security software, update it, and then run full scans today with each program. Report back the results of the scans.
See if the above resolves the 0x101 BugCheck code. If not, proceed with the other steps in STOP 0x101: CLOCK_WATCHDOG_TIMEOUT troubleshtg.

I have now been trying to fix this issue of over 6 months, and am not able to find the solution. It really is a stress factor that is making my life difficult. I would therefore very much appreciate any help anyone can give me.

I bought the computer off the shelf from a vendor with the following config:

Windows Vista Home Premium - SP 2

Processor: Intel Quad-Core i7 920 @ 2.67 GHz
Graphics card: Geforce GTX 285
Motherboard: Gigabyte Ultra Durable GA-EX58-UD4P

I have since added three 1TB 3.5's hard drives.

The computer was working fine once purchased, but I am unsure what has happened or whether I have caused the issue somehow. It runs everything perfectly in maximum resolutions and so on. However suddenly i started getting BSOD's when the computer was under stress. This continued for a while intermittently, so I tried cleaning up everything (uninstalling unecessary software, removing peripherals) but this didn't really help. Then I ran memtests without any errors, virus scans finding nothing, and chkdsk's which also found nothing.

I then updated the BIOS software which seemed to help momentarily. But the BSOD's returned. So I bought an 80 GB SSD drive and thought using this as my OS drive would help. So i deleted the old OS and installed the new one here. This did help for a while, however then when i boot I had 2 copies of Windows which I had to choose from, one of which failed and asked me to insert windows disk saying there was an error, the other working fin...

Do that for each partition on the system. Change C each time to match partition letters.

it's not because there's anything wrong with the memory, but because AMDs only work well in dual channel mode with certain types of RAM. I learned that the hard way myself.. I have 8GB of Crucial ballistix that I can't use. Try the memory in my specs, or try just using a single DIMM till you can get memory that has been verified as AMD compatible.

Hi, I'm currently getting a BSOD on my Windows XP Professional with Service Pack 2. I started getting problems last night after surfing youtube a bit and realized my computer was acting kind of weird. That's when i closed my browser and tried to open it again and it came up with a message that referred to my harddisk space. I don't remember what it said. But that's where the problem started and i got a Windows security Alert that was accompanied by a program called "Quick Defrag" that popped up out of nowhere. I was scared I got a virus because it was doing some kind of scan so I quickly closed the program. I was curious if it installed anything or if any program was running so I used ctrl+alt+delete to check for any fishy programs running. I saw the programs and they were named in a bunch of random letters like "GejhwySas.exe." Since I couldn't access my browser to use a free virus scanner I decided to restart my computer, and that's when i got a BSOD. I attempted to boot in safe mode and it still comes up with a BSOD, so basically i can't even boot into Windows... This is also the first time I've gotten any kind of BSOD with this computer. Someone please help me... I have no idea what to do at all and I have files that I don't want to lose.

I have this laptop for a year now and it didnt make me much trouble. Some blue screens sometimes, without reason (in no case i did exactly the same thing like last time) and i thought it happens to all of us. Today i was playing League of Legends and it was running really slow, i had no lag though, the internet was doing fine (i was using Facebook and other sites). So i tried to restart it but after my desktop disappeared the screen was black and didnt restarted. So i unplugged it. After i turned it on again, after the "Starting Windows" screen, in the middle of the screed was the mouse, i heard the Windows log in sound but the users screen with password or finger print reader didnt appear and the mouse was alternating with that circle that appears when loading, sometime even the blue background in the users screen but just for a second. Those 2 were alternating continuously and i unplugged it again and now i am writing to you from safe mode. I will attach the debug file and i hope to hear from you soon.

Hi guys. Really hoping someone can help me out here.

The BSOD I'm getting is telling me...

Page Fault in Non Paged Area; win32k.sys

I have tried starting in Safe Mode but that blue screens also after the win7 logo.

A few reboots prior to the BSOD suddenly starting, I installed a piece of software - plugin for a video editor. But system did reboot just fine the first few times after that. Also, not sure if this is related, but I noticed my system making a weird noise earlier. I have SSDs, so I'm not sure where the sound was coming from. Do SSDs make weird noises?

Apologies if I've not provided the right info - new to this troubleshooting thing.

Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

A:BSOD after reboot - can't get into Windows even in safe mode

Welcome to Seven Forums, I will try to help with your issue. The first thing to try is to restore your system to a previous point in time to before you installed the plugin you described in your post. this will tell you how. You will probably need to try option 2. System Recovery Options

If that does not work, try running Startup repair. Startup Repair . You may need to run it 3 separate times with attempted reboots between each time.

To answer your question, SSDs do not make any noise. You should not be able to hear any noise at all from them.

Try these options, if they work please run Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions and upload the zip file here. This will tell you how to do that or upload most files here. Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums. Most screenshots are better using the Snipping Tool which is a part of Windows. This will tell you how to use it. How to Use the Snipping Tool in Vista but, if you have problems, using paint will work fine Screenshot with Paint

A:BSOD at startup now can't even start my windows in safe mode

An update,
in the meantime i tried doing a chkdsk /r (from windows CD, shift + f10), and it says:
"the type of the file system is NTFS. Cannot lock current drive. Windows cannot run checking on this volume because it is write protected"
also sfc /scannow doesn't work because there is a windows repair pending.

The safe mode doesn't seem to be starting either. It just stops (my hard disk light is working btw).
So i'm guessing it's a HDD problem.
Is there something i can do at this point?

Thanks.
