Preferred Solution: Re Directed then System (Computer) Crashed

I recommend downloading and running DRP. It's a recovery tool that has been proven to recover files that most other programs have no luck with. I've even recovered files from freshly formatted or partitioned drives.

You can download it direct from this link http://goo.gl/v51TwD. (This link will automatically start a download of DRP that you can save to your computer.)

A: Re Directed then System (Computer) Crashed

Sounds like your hard drive may have failed.
Can you see your hard drive in the BIOS settings?
Is "AHCI" enabled in the BIOS?
Is you hard drive SATA?

If you can give me a little more info to go on, I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Even if your hard drive has failed or is failing, all is not lost...
Do not make any further changes to your hard drive until you can determine it's condition, otherwise it could make data recovery more difficult, if in fact this is a hardware failure.

My Laptop was being very slow when i switched it on and it would not open properly. After a number of attempts to reboot it and open properly and update the anti virus it crashed.

 I think one of my children happend to step on my computer. So now it's black and want me to install a operative system. I used to have windows 10. It also tells me that: SMART Check: Not Installed, Long DST: Not Installed. My question is:1. Cant I save my computor and reinstall windows 10 somehow.2. The screen is black, how can I reach the reinstallation button?3. I have no dvd with Windows 10.4. Is there any chance to wake my computer up??

A:Computer crashed. No operative system.

Eubj Sorry, but we have no access to your PC, so we have no way of knowing what damage was done, and have (as a result) no way to answer your question of how salvageable it is. We need to know if your PC came with Win10 preinstalled or if you upgraded it from a prior OS, and if so, the version of the prior OS. All we can do from here is provide some troubleshooting steps you can take. First thing I would do is try to follow these directions to confirm the hard drive is OK: Testing a Hard Disk from the BIOS | HP® Customer Support If the hard drive failed, you would have to replace it and order HP Recovery Media to restore your PC to working conditions, and until you have that done, there is little value in testing anything else. If the hard drive did not fail, here are some troubleshooting steps you should try:HP Notebook PCs - Testing for Hardware Failures (Windows 10, 8) | HP® Customer SupportBlack Screen Displays with No Error Messages During Startup or Boot | HP® Customer Support In terms of Win10 install media, you can make a DVD or USB stick from this link: Installing Windows 10 using the media creation tool - Windows Help NOTE: Be sure to select the SAME version of Win10 that was running on your PC.  When downloading from the original PC, the tool knows what version to select, but since you'll be downloading using a different PC, it has no way of knowing that.  IF you download a different version, it will NOT activate...

A:Computer crashed. Have backup of complete file system. Any way to recover Office

 
I have a complete file system backup.

 
Is this a back-up - in that you copied over the fiies and folders you wanted to protect - or is it clone of the drive ?  If it's a clone you should just be able to reinstate it on the new computer. If it is a file copy back-up then it will not contain the keys you are looking for as they are stored in the registry to the best of my knowledge.
 
Can you not just re-install Office 2013 from whatever media you installed it before, it will have the authentication key on or with it ?  Unlike Windows you can install MS Office on as many computers as you have a licence for. If it is a single use licence you can move it from one computer to another so long as it is uninstalled from the previous one.

Hi, I love this site and you guys have helped me so much, so first of all, thank you!

Now the bad news.... I got the WIndows Vista Repair virus about a month ago on my Acer PC. At first, it ran all of those warning messages and then it shut down the computer and reloaded as what appeared to be a completely wiped computer. The only icon on the desktop was the Windows Vista Repair. I tried to find programs by searching for a few minutes before trying to shut down (which the virus had also made me incapable of doing), and resorting to popping out the battery to shut it down. I restarted in safe mode with networking and tried to get on this site, but even in safe mode my browser was auto-redirecting me to sales sites. By following instructions for removal on this site, and downloading programs onto a flash drive from a different computer, I was able to get my computer in working order again, although it would still, at times, randomly shut down my internet browser (and the process and amount of time I spent getting it just to that state of operation was ridiculous, much worse than any virus I've EVER had...I can explain what all happened and the steps I took if necessary). A couple of weeks later, I left my computer on while I went to a friend's house for the night, and when I came back in the morning I couldn't get it to unfreeze. I shut it down and for the next two days, every time I tried to turn it on it would just run on a loop, booting up part of the way bu... Read more

I have first been getting these problems when I downloaded Comodo IS Pro. Apparently when I approached them for help,the technician did not reply to me after telling me to install.

Thus I did a system restore and the computer could load in normal mode(however the screen,etc loaded slow like hell.)

Yesterday, I downloaded comodo firewall and something familiar appeared

From Problem Reports and solution, these are the service that crashed:

4X svchost.exe
1X lsm.exe
1X sandboxie.exe
1X wininit.exe

But guard32.dll from comodo is the module causing it according to Problem Reports and Solution, but anyone knows why and how to solve it?

Hi everyone!
 
So, I have a (potential) problem. A couple of hours ago I had a few tabs open in Google Chrome, one of which was Grooveshark (a music-streaming website I often use). I had a few songs playing and went to the bathroom to shave. When I came back a few minutes later, the music had stopped and the page had been re-directed. There was a red logo in the top left-hand corner (that I think was made to resemble that of Adobe) and from what I remember the page was suggesting that something needed to be downloaded/updating (foolishly, I instinctively closed the window straight away as I feared something dodgy was up. If I'd been thinking straight, I would've written down what was on my screen as that would have been more helpful!). What's more, there was a tab at the bottom of the page apparently showing that two things had been downloaded already (one of which I'm pretty sure was 'set up', and I think the other was something ending in'.exe.', but I'm not totally sure about that.
 
To be honest, I'm a real technophobe, but I've been using PC laptops long enough to know when something's abnormal, and that certainly was. Pages shouldn't automatically re-direct like that (I've used Grooveshark for years and it's never happened to me before on there), and things shouldn't be automatically downloaded without your permission. Also, the fact it resembled an Adobe update page, but clearly wasn't, is very fishy. I've run a 'full system' and 'smart scan' check with my fre... Read more

My problem (it's the huytebesy4ko.net problem everyone here seems to have) started last night around 10 PM . Firefox froze so I used Task manager, and went to the processes tab to discover a tmp file (with a numbered name like 7474. tmp or something) taking up a lot of the memory usage. Sensing immediately that it was spyware/malware, I downloaded Killbox to delete the files (I went in the Temp folder to discover another four digit name tmp file). After deleting them, I tried Firefox again to see if the problem was solved. It wasn't.
Cut to today, I try to use system restore. It goes as far to load up and restart, but after it loads up to the desktop it tells me that system restore didn't complete. I've tried this at least three times today, the third time I tried it (in safe mode), it said the restore point was damaged or was deleted. After that, I find this site, and follow the steps preparation guide. I was able to make DDS and Attach file, but when I tried to make an Ark file using RootRepeal, it gave me a BSOD "IRQ LESS OR EQUAL" error. The second time, I tried to run it in safe mode, and it froze the computer. As it loads back to the desktop, it gives me a "rundll32 has stopped working" error.

Hello, For more than three days I have been trying to rid a virus named Antivirus Pro 2010 by Googling this word and downloading to CD at least 10 antivirus programs before somehow I ended up downloading Combofix. In the instructions it indicated to copy the Log file and go no further. First, I have to start in Safe Mode because that AVP2010 won't even allow me to go online, so I saved Combofix to a CD on another computer and then scanned my infected computer with that CD. The safe mode would not let me disable or remove Norton so I had to scan with Norton in place. Everything else indicated in the instructions up to and including the logfile on notepad worked. I had to save the logfile on a USB sandisk. Now back at bleeping compute in the forums it indicated not to send a Combofix Log File unless . . . I honestly don't recall the steps I took to get there. Is there someone who can accept/diagnose/assist me with trying to rid my computer of this virus? eternally grateful, e-mail removed to protect from spambots. ~ OB

hi all,

my win 7 pc crapped out. its not the disk. i have an image made on acronis. i bought a new win 10 pc. whats the easiest way to get that win 7 image with all my applications onto the new win 10 desktop? i want to get rid of windows 10. i would like my image working on new pc (new hardware) as i will not have to reinstall and configure everything again.

i tried swapping the old pc disk into the new pc, but the new pc would not boot: says invalid disk. could it have something to do with the MBR or that UEFI thing?

A:System crashed, how to restore Windows7 system image into new desktop

you're going to be in a world of pain if you want to do this but have no access to the old computer. In this situation, a SYSPREP with the generalize function is run in Windows 7 to prepare it for migration to new hardware.

You can try cold turkey like you did, you may have to switch to AHCI drivers from IDE or IDE to AHCI depending on what you had before to get it to boot. The boot sector may be a problem too. If you used standard MBR in the past then check your BIOS on the new PC to see what adjustment you can make.

Normal startup doesn't work, and the repair gives me the message "cannot repair this computer automatically". I send the info to microsoft and it gave me no options to fix it

And although I have attempted the repair several times already, for some reason it says number if repair attempted:1

I have tried safe mode, did a dskchk with /f but didn't do anything

Unfortunately I have made no backup

Also, the windows came with the computer so I don't have any disks or anything

A:System crashed please help!!

I am no expert,but the same thing happened to me with my laptop in October. I called my computer manufacturer's tech service and we went through most of the F8 options and none of them worked except for the options under recovery manager: I had a choice of full factory recovery or recovery with automatic data backup and I chose recovery with automatic data backup. Because I chose recovery with backup,I retained all of my files. I don't know if your computer has that option or not. But,if all else fells you may be able to do that.

There are probably other things you can do first. Other people with more knowledge than me might have other suggestions,I'm sure.

Good Luck!

I have two systems in my device the other one is ubuntu , as we know when I turn on the device the system Give me a suggestions to select which system I want so I choose windows but the problem is the system again restart from it self and it still do that just with xp but it okay with linux , I think I need to delete the files of current updates but how can I log in to windows ?

- I can not reach to the welcome screen
- Safe mood as normal mood , which mean it still restart
- I lost the CD's of system

A:My XP.system have been crashed

From the Advanced Options Menu choose Disable automatic restart on system failure instead of Safe Mode.
Post the lines under the Technical Information section, the Stop code and any file names it mentions.

Do you know which updates you were installing?
If you were installing the KB977165 update, and have the version before MS added code to check for the presence of a rootkit, that could be the cause. Installing the update on an infected system causes blue screens or restarts.

Check the Windows partition for this folder:
WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB977165$
If present, check in the spuninst subfolder for the spuninst.txt file

The spuninst.txt file contains the commands that the Recovery Console would use to uninstall the update. It's a list of Delete and Copy commands to delete the new files, and restore the old version. The last command makes a copy of the spuninst.txt file named spuninst.tag so that Windows Update will know it's been removed.

You can do each command from Ubuntu if you don't have an XP CD.
If you have access to a Vista/Win 7 DVD or can download one of the Vista/Win 7 Recovery Environment CDs, I have a batch file that can uninstall the update as well.

Vista Recovery Environment CD

First off, thanks to everyone ahead of time for helping me!

Alright, so I just moved to a new house and hooked my computer up to the internet for the first time on the new IP. I was on for just a few minutes when I got a "Send error report" saying that "the system has recovered from a serious error". When I go to click anything, I get the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!! Now it happens everytime within a couple of minutes when I load my desktop. Now I don't really think it has anything to do with a different IP or anything like that, but I've been messing around with other forums for days now and still haven't been able to fix this problem so I decided to jump in the forums and post my own thread and just hope I can get this fixed.

A:My system crashed, please help!

Hopefully the computer wasn't dropped when you moved from house to house. Also hopefully the computer was packed up right and didn't get banged around inside the truck or whatsover.

One thing you can do is to check the HDD for any errors. Go to the manufacturer's website of the hard-drive and download the latest diagnostics utility. Then put the program onto a CD, boot the computer to the CD, and test HDD for any errors. If there are any errors, then it's time to backup your files ASAP.

Another thing you can do is to perform a windows repair on your computer and hopefully windows repair will fix the problem.

Also try reseating computer parts. Reseat the videocard, cpu, and memory sticks and make sure they are on the motherboard tight.

You can also perform a check disk repair. Go into my computer and right click on the C: drive. Then choose properties and then click on the tools menu. Click on "check now" on the error-checking section and then make sure the two boxes are checked. Click on start and reboot your computer and let check repair do it's thing.

Early today my computer was perfect, then came the disater, I was informed that I needed to install SP1 (vista service pack 1). I did so, and towards the end of the process, it crashed my system, I mean a total, complete crash. There is no windows, no prompt, no curser, just a black screen. No matter how many times I turn my compter on and off, the same black screen is looking back at me. The microsoft website is not helping, they want to charge me to fix a problem caused by their system (dont get me wrong, happy to pay for service). Is there any way I can restore my system without inserting the start up disks again.

Added: While waiting for a reply I have decided that I would have to start over. However, my computer will not even read the discs to start over, there is just nothing. Just black. (3 years ago, I had to start over, it was simple,I just put the manufacturer disks in my disk drive, started the computer, and it wiped everything and started again). Any suggestions would be so much appreciated.

A:SP1 just crashed my system

Hi,

are you using a PC or laptop? When you turn the PC off then back on, do you see the POST screen, i.e. the manufacturer's logo and/or a series of checks denoted by white text on a black screen?

It could be that the PC isn't fully turning off and you're going straight back to the screen you're seeing. If that's the case, remove the power lead from the PC after turning off (or remove the laptop battery), wait 10 seconds then reconnect and power on.

I think your system have trouble with unload Schema hive - it is only temporary hive and after restart system never use it.Download MEPIS Bypassing Log-in Passwords to Access Folders on Drive
burn,boot it and navigate to folder C:\Windows\System32\config ->in this folder find SCHEMA file and rename to SCHEMA.OLD ,next run system normally.

After reinstalling the OS I came to find out after it first said my key was ok that everytime I go to retsrt computer it saids my key is invalid. Idk what to do at this point. I looked all over the internet to find a OEm version since the retail will not accept OEm keys because of a invalid certificate. So what can I do? My computer now is constantly in a "windows needs to activate 30 more days" state and it won't accept my key. I have called microsoft just to have them tell me i have to contact HP for their original cd's however it cost around 40 for them. I do not simply have the money atm. Can anyone help?

A:(OEM KEY PROBLEM) System crashed

Vista OEM and Retail disks are bit-identical.
The only difference is the Key itself.

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
- **in your own thread**, please

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

We have Windows7 and an exterior drive backup. This exterior backup advised us this morning that a partition was full.

We tried to shut the system down - and it asked if we wanted to 'correct' something in the system (it said it was trying to decide). We opted to 'save' the changes and were prompted to reboot the system,

When the computer came back on - there was a white line across the middle of the screen, changed to black and the whole screen 'faded to black'.

Since then, we have tried a variety of things

We did ALT F10 - the system goes to Windows and the Ace restore menu

We did a system restore (NOT FULL)

Then we got

Error Code 1392 The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable

I SOOOOOOOOOO hope someone can give us a little direction to get this thing back up and running

One of the back up files says it was created in Sept 7 - and we cannot get into it. For some reason - the ongoing back up is not showing any more recent date than Sept

We DO NOT want to lose the data that hopefully is still in the computer

Any suggestions would really be appreciated - thank you
 

A:system crashed and won't restore

That sounds like your hard (external) disk is corrupted. Who is the maker on the drive?

My system crashed last night. Loading a heavy graphics MMORPG, the screen started stuttering and semi froze. It has happened before and I hard turn off computer and reboot and all is well. Not this time.
This time I went to the "boot in safe mode" or "last good settings" or "boot normally" screen.
None works. When I try to boot in safe mode, i get a string of lines and it stops.. then recycles. When I try to boot normally or at last good settings, I get the Windows booting screen with the horizontal scrolling then it turns off and starts the booting process again.

I went to CMOS and put on default safest mode and that didn't help.

Then I decided to reinstall Win XP 64 Pro, my OS. I set to boot first via CD drive and it starts the process and delivers me a blue screen with "Windows Setup" in the upper left hand corner of the screen but it proceeds no further. It just sits there and the CD stops spinning.

I put another HD in from an older computer with Win XP and it booted so I assume it's not related to the MB or CPU but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do next. If I can't boot in Safe Mode and if I can't reinstall Win XP64... I am out of ideas.
I am planning on buying a new HD and installing my OS in it if I can't come up with an alternative.

Don't have all my hardware info but it's an AMD 2X64 cpu and a decent gigabyte MB with onboard graphics. I don't have a video ca... Read more
