Windows XP Blue Screen "SPOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}"

Q: Windows XP Blue Screen "SPOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}"

Hello all,

This is my first post, I am not very computer literate and I am having a very large problem at the moment with my Windows XP Media Edition, with Microsoft Service Pack 3 installed.
This morning I started my computer and it worked fine initially loading up my desktop background and desktop icons, then the task bar at the bottom turned grey.
Without clicking anything my screen then turned blue and I got the error message that follows:

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The WIndows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000).
The system has been shut down

I rebooted about 4 times getting the same error, but on the 5th time it logged on as normal. I was then able to use the computer for about an hour I then turned it off. After rebooting it a few minutes ago the same error has appeared again and have rebooting about 10 times it doesnt seem to be going this time.

On occasions I get a different error which is:

"STOP: c00000135 {Unable To Locate Component}
This application has failed to start because qt-mt.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

Has anyone got any idea what this is and how to solve it? And if the two errors are related?
Thank you

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.)

Yesterday, our computer around 6PM got a fake antivirus virus that popped up and installed automatically. I went and removed it off my computer. That one was called "Malware Doctor". Later, about 2 hours later, I got another one that popped up on my task bar called "Antivirus 2010". That one didnt install and I removed it. Today i started up our computer, and I got Antivirus 2010 again. I exited out of it, and removed it. Then I could not access the internet via Google Chrome, so i tried AOL. AOL worked, but it was freezing as always. I decided to restart my modem and my computer.

When I turned it on, It would go past the XP screen and continuously reboot. I then hit F8 many times, and got the menu(not sure what its called) and make it so it would not auto-reboot on system failure. Booting into safe mode doesnt work, or the other start options. I am using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS to access the internet/techguy.

I then got this error on a blue screen:

c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The Windows logon process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status o
f 0xc0000022 (0x00000000, 0x0000000)
The system has been shut down. Click to expand...

I do not have a XP installation disc, or any other windows recovery discs. How may I go about fixing this?

Thanks! You guys are awesome, you helped me tremendously when I had my last virus/PC problem.

Broadcom PXE implies it's been trying to boot from a network so you need to go into BIOS to change the boot order to CD drive before you can get your reinstallation going. However, if it got all the way to trying the network boot option, chances are nothing else worked along the way. Restart and tap Delete or Function 2 for BIOS.

I'm having a problem with my sister in law's computer. Originally, she had that annoying XP 2008 virus/spyware, which I think I managed to get rid of with Malwarebytes' Anti Malware and System Mechanic 7. Now I have a new problem. After receiving a recent download from microsoft, upon restarting, I get the blue screen of death with this message;

STOP: C000021a (Fatal System Error) The Windows Logon Process system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000005 (0x00000000 0x00000000)

I can't get anywhere into Windows, I've done F2, F8, F12, everything I could think of without risking more damage since I'm not trained for this. I've booted from the system mechanic CD with the Hard Drive recovery, and while it said it found and fixed a problem, it didn't fix this one. I have no windows CD. The computer is a Dell, and it's running Windows XP service pack 2 with Explorer 6. Heeeeeelp! Other than the F keys, I can't get anywhere with this computer.

Hello Everyone,

I have a Dell XPS Studio 1645 i7 Q 720 @ 1.60GHz, 1597 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
4 GB DDR3 RAM
BIOS: Dell Inc. A08, 3/12/2010
Windows 7 64-bit 6.1.7600 Build 7600
GPU: ATI HD 4670 1GB RAM

I am using a 90W adapter fyi and games seem to run fine once windows boots.

So my problem is,

I get a Blue screen a few times when I reboot my system. But then it just goes away on restart. Sometimes I have to restart multiple times for it to windows to start up.

The blue screen occurs at the Windows is loading page right after the windows come together. I have no idea why this error occurs, I got so frustrated with it that I called Dell and the technician came and replaced my motherboard and hardrive. But this error still occurs. ANY help would be greatly appreciated..I have absolutely no idea what drivers/software would cause this to occur. I am attaching the log files for the error and the dump file too (The dump file is zipped since i can't attach .dmp) .

As I said before any kind of help resolving this would be much appreciated. If someone could pinpoint which application/hardware/software in specific is causing this I will be SO GRATEFUL!

PS:- I don't have any Antivirus either (since I read about AVG making this happen)

Thanks,
SD

Hi guys,
A few days ago I started my computer and it blue-screened with the message:

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

If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try chaging video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF85F9AD9, 0xF898B7A4, 0xF898B4A4)

I had installed XP over the existing 2000 Professional last February, and it has worked well until this popped up.

I tried using the XP disk to repair the system, and the computer seems to boot normally until it started to display desktop shortcuts. At this point the computer blue screens with the message:

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The widows subsystem system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000005 (0x340fd48b 0x00015fac4). The system has been shut down.

Safe Mode has failed me. Cannot load last. Used a XP OS CD with SP2 on it for expanding winlogon. Computer will not allow me to reinstall over the existing XP. I have been using a different XP OS CD that has SP2 with the XP. Have not tried the appropriate XP OS CD yet but will next. Any thoughts or steps to rescue this computer. Have not backed up in several weeks but nothing too critical on this unit but itunes. We have several PC's and this is the most used. I had thought I had eliminated the AVSuite Spyware and Redirect issue using TSSDKiller but it came back with a vengence. In safe mode I was searching the registry for AVSuite references and deleting them. Reboot. BSD ;( Ouch.

Hi Bones, and welcome to TSF.

Not sure what you are trying to acheive but you should be running on SP3 and if you are and you're using a disc which has been slipstreamed with SP2 it won't work. Make another disc using this http://www.howtohaven.com/system/sli...e-pack-3.shtml

I think there is a very good chance that your machine is infected. If the slipstream doesn't work......

hi folks bit of problem here, but i have the solution! i just need to know if theres any way i can get past the bluw screen of death to fix it.
a w2_32.dll file was deleted by my antivirus software after it got infected and the blue screen came up after this. i have the file on my computer but obviously cant get to it. the computer wont boot in safe mode or from the last good config, but i was hopin theres a way i could unrar and copy the file through the recovery console or if i make a Usb boot stick from there? any help much appreciated!


ps i was just thinking although i dont have the setup disk, dell store a copy of the xp CD on the hard drive C:\i386.
would it be possible to run a utility from there that would replace the missing files? if so how would i access it? could it be done from the recovery console?

honestly if it was already infected my best suggestion is to borrow some ones computer and access your old HDD from the other computer and just saved the important files because there no use doing all that work when theres a chance it can get corrupted again =\

and im also having a BSOD problem like non stop! and i can't figure it out also.. i've reformatted so much and still no luck so im guessing its really a hardware problem.

but yeah man i suggest starting off clean and new again i mean if you know how to low level formatt that'll help too specially when its a brand new year :D new start :D

Hello, I am new to this forum and hope you guys can help me out with my issue, any help is appreciated. Now, the problem that I am having is that I am trying to install a RTM version of Windows 7 Ultimate onto my pc, and the installation seems to go well but when it gets to the finalizing stage after I put in my new username and it successfully activates the key, the computer reboots and i get the following error:

Stop: C000021a{Fatal System Error}
The initial session process or system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000001 (0xc0000001 0x0010038c). The system has shut down.

Now what's odd about this whole thing is that I was and am running Windows 7 Build 7100 and did not have any problem installing Build 7100. And I was also able to install the RTM Windows 7 on a laptop with no problem, so I know it's not a problem with the DVD. I only get a problem when I try to install it onto my pc. I have a Gateway FX530S, 2GB of Ram, and am running Windows 7 Build 7100...

Any help will be appreciated. I really want to get the RTM Windows 7 installed because my 7100 Build expires in March.

Thank you in advance

A:"Fatal System Error" when installing Windows 7

Are you using separate keys for the two installs? I never enter a key until I see if it is running OK. Just do not enter a key and uncheck the activate while online and you will have 30 days to check the install.

How are you installing the RTM on the desktop--a custom install?

Hi.
 
I'm having some issues booting my PC. The last time I was on it I put it to sleep (as I always do). I don't believe that I've changed anything lately as I've only really been using it to stream content from it to the TV.
 
The BSOD shows the following error:
 
STOP: c000021a {Fatal system error}
The verification of a KnownDLL failed. system process terminated unexpectedly with the status of 0xc0000221 (0x0113dda0 0x00000000)
 
I've tried to boot into safe mode to no avail.
 
I've attempted to use all in built system recovery to no avail. 
 
I've also searched Google but can't really find anything relevant to fix the issue.
 
The boot drive is a 64GB SSD drive from Kingston.
 
I've ran FRST on it and got the log if that's any help?
 
I'd very much appreciate any help on this

My computer recently crashed; I didn't pay attention to the first message because, like most people, I'm constantly getting an error message of some type so I didn't pay much attention to this one - until the screen requested the installation CD to be run.

Pressing OK, I read:

Due to my problem with booting the laptop in my previous thread, finally I decided to reinstall Windows XP with the old Windows CD I have since many years ago. On the Windows Set Up screen, during the reinstallation process the page alerts me that it is not able to find some files on the CD - so I had to hit ESC in order to proceed the reinstallation. There are many files missing it seems so I had to press ESC many, many times.

After I finish the reinstallation, the laptop rebooted but now, once Windows XP restarted it only took me to a blue screen page with error message "STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}" which says that the process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0xc0000135 (0x00000000 0x00000000) and that the system has been shut down.

At this point I have no option else to do but to turn off the laptop. Once I turned it on again, the Windows will attempt to reboot and shows an XP Set Up screen saying "Set Up Restarts" for a couple of seconds, and then will end up again at the blue screen c000021a error.

I have since got a new Windows XP CD but do not seem to be able to reinstall Windows again on my laptop - whatever I do now I can only get Windows to restart which would end up again at the Set Up Restarts screen, and then the blue screen error.
 

A:Unable to reinstall Windows XP ("STOP: c000021a" error)

This error (i.e. c000021a) is caused by pending file-rename operations that are scheduled in the Windows registry, but somehow are not completed. According to MS it can also occur if the file that is described in the error message is corrupted (probably due to hardware issues I think).

The logical point to start with is check your HDD's health. Do you know what is the make/model of your notebook? If so go to the site of HDD manufacturer, download their diagnostic utility and thoroughly check your hard drive. Regards

Hello,
Recently I have been getting BSOD's.. got 3rd time in 5 bootups. It happens on Starting Windows screen.
The latest one said something like this:






Quote:
STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error}
The initial session process or system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of 0x00000000 (0xc0000006 ...... another combination of integers and alphabets which i can't recall)
The system has been shut down.


And this is not it; I have been getting problems lately.
1. This Starting Windows screen stays for long time, so boot time has doubled (or even more)

2. Weeks back, my system went slow overall; I was going to post in here, but before that I ran my Anti-virus, ran defrag tool and these didn't help. Then check disk helped me and everything went like normal.

When my system was slow, opening any drive took very long and was really frustrating. And i was amazed when I used to close the window since it took too much time, and when it was time, that drive was explored in a new window.

Also, I used to play movies, they used to get stuck in between... and that still happened after my system was faster, but it was kinda rare with some movies only.

So now, I am confused about my system. I wonder if both problems are connected to eachother.

I doubt it could be my HDD, though this system is just 1.5 years old.

Troubleshooting a Vista HP machine that had (mywebsearch) MWS and other non-lethal spywares ... and blue screens. Solved the MWS pretty easily with MWB....but the machine kept blue screening (went too fast to write down error codes). OK, so I ran numerous Vista diagnostics .. even removed the HD and ran error checker through another machine with this drive plugged in via SATA to USB adapter. Found and fixed some errors. Also replaced RAM with one of mine, no change in symptoms so I replaced factory ram.
Machine would boot up fine ... but very shortly therafter stop and/or blue screen. One error code I managed to get was relative to some ISATAP thing. I researched this and didn't find too much that was helpful, but I did go to device manager and uninstall this from the network adapter area.

I pulled another SATA 2.5 drive and inserted it into the machine with the intent of formatting and reinstalling OS. As soon as I turned on machine it said no hard drive was found and stopped. I repeated this process with 2 additional SATA 2.5 drives with the exact same error. This really got my head spinning.
