Vista 64-bit Startup Error: Reboots, Crashes, Reboots, Works

Q: Vista 64-bit Startup Error: Reboots, Crashes, Reboots, Works

I'm having an extremely weird vista startup error.
I just built my computer about a month ago and installed Vista Ultimate 64-bit SP-1. It took me about 15 tries, but I finally got vista installed. I updated the drivers for the graphics card and sound card, installed Norton Internet Security 2008 and Supreme Commander: FA, and it started doing this weird restarting stuff.

Once booted up, my computer runs fine. It runs Supcom: FA perfectly at all max settings with no slowdown and has never crashed once. This makes me think it is not a hardware issue.

Here's where the problems start. Every time I turn on my computer, the graphics card cycles the fan high, then low, high, then low eight times before it boots. It didn't do that before. I want to fix that because it takes a long time and the noise is annoying.
Once it boots up, I get the "Windows Error Recovery" screen and if I select "start normally," it starts to boot (green loading bar) then gives me a bluescreen for ~1/4 second (too fast to read or get a pic of) then reboots.
I get the "Windows Error Recovery" screen again and select "use previous settings" and it will sometimes start normally, other times I have to repeat this process. Every time I start normally, it crashes and reboots. Once it's booted, it works fine.

I tried booting off the install DVD and running "Repair My Computer"
First, I said no to using system restore. It said there was a patch error and that it could not be fixed automatically.
When I used System Restore, I think it deleted Norton but, it started up fine. Next restart, however, it was back to restarting.

Also, any time the computer enters sleep mode, the graphics fan goes crazy and it snaps out of sleep.

Any help? I have all the manuals and CDs/DVDs that came with the hardware as well as the Vista install disk. Re-Installing Vista is definitely an option, as i haven't really been able to install anything important or create any important files.

Here are the specs:

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.)

I went to turn on my new HP desktop and it gets through to the windows vista load screen, then the computer restarts. I haven't loaded anything new lately, cpu, memory and hard drive come back clean on system check. I've reverted back to last known good. I have windows defender and virus protection. Please help.

A:Windows Vista reboots at startup screen

First you need to boot into Safe Mode.

Start tapping the "F8" key as the system reboots. This should get you to a boot menu where you can select Safe Mode

Next, log on and select "yes" when it asks if you want to continue in safe mode and close the help box that automatically opens.

Click Start>RightClick Computer and select "Properties" or Start>Control Panel>Doubleclick "System"

Select "Advanced System Settings" on the left side

Select Startup and Recovery "Settings" Button

Deselect the "Automatic restart" check box and OK. (This allows you to see the error message that may explain what caused the system to reboot.)

Close everything and restart as you normally would.

Record any error message you see when the system restarts.

The technicians in the company lab first told me the windows installation was faulty so I installed windows again with service pack 2 and all the new updates and it still goes haywire periodically. I spoke to microsoft - they said that it's probably a hardware issue.

I'm sorry if this has already been posted I have look through the forums and found a few solutions none of which seem to work.

After about an hour or so of gaming my pc screen either goes back or i get lines across the screen while the sound is still clear, the sound then disappears and my pc reboots. This has only recently started happening in the past few days.

A:[SOLVED] Random Reboots/BSOD Crashes (Various Error messages)

Hi,

We have two frequent bug checks:

MEMORY_MANAGEMENT (1a)

This indicates that a severe memory management error occurred.

BugCheck 1A, {31, ffffe000020c77d0, ffffd00022aae000, ffffc00008db96b8}

- The 1st parameter of the bug check is 31 which indicates the image relocation fix-up table or code stream has been corrupted. This is probably a hardware error.

In addition to 31 as the 1st parameter, we also have 41792 in another dump which indicates a corrupted PTE has been detected.

NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM (24)

This indicates a problem occurred in ntfs.sys, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS drives.

One possible cause of this bug check is disk corruption. Corruption in the NTFS file system or bad blocks (sectors) on the hard disk can induce this error. Corrupted SCSI and IDE drivers can also adversely affect the system's ability to read and write to disk, thus causing the error.


Another possible cause is depletion of nonpaged pool memory. If the nonpaged pool memory is completely depleted, this error can stop the system. However, during the indexing process, if the amount of available nonpaged pool memory is very low, another kernel-mode driver requiring nonpaged pool memory can also trigger this error.

Hello,

I just built a computer yesterday using a Coolermaster Haf 912 case, Gigabyte 880GM-D2H motherboard, AMD Phenom II quad core 955, Crucial Ballistix 4 Gb, WD 1 Tb Scorpio blue hard drive, Cool max 700 watt PSU, DVD drive and Windows 7.

It keeps rebooting and or blue screening. I can't even have it on long enough to download updates and try to update drivers before it crashes. I checked the bios temps and they are 34c and 41c. DDR3 memory is running at 1.5v. I tried reinstalling 7 and the same issues.

It will stay on in safe mode and I also got a Ultimate Boot CD 2010 from a friend and it stays on when I ran that. I don't know too much about the disc so I ran a memtest and it passed. I ran a quick test on the WD diagnostic and that was ok.

Thanks for help in advance.

You can run diagnostics on the hard drive by downloading Seatools and making a bootable disc. Do the short and long test.

If either test fails, the drive needs to be replaced.

Hi,

I've been going through the same ****ing annoying dance with my desktop for the past months. It started around the time I replaced XP with Windows 7.

Essentially, I have to go through 10+ reboots before my PC works every morning when I start my PC.

Here are some of the things that happen (in no particular order):
- Hanging at "Initializing USB controllers" on the very first screen when the PC boots
- Hanging at the "starting Windows" screen (the Windows logo never appears)
- BSODing shortly after log in or during any part of the boot process

Due to the above, I go through 10+ reboots before I'm able to use my PC. This means my startup time, instead of 1-2 min, is closer to 20 min EVERY DAY. I put up with it because I'm lazy but I really need to sort this out because it's getting annoying.

Thanks.

I've got a Lenovo laptop (3000 N200) with XP Pro SP2, about a year old that just started crashing out of nowhere. Every time you boot it up it loads the Windows logo screen, makes it to the blue welcome screen, then shows a very brief error message in a tiny blue box (something about a physical error), shuts down then restarts, and the same thing happens.

Hard drive checks, memory checks, virus & malware scans all show nothing wrong. I restored it back to before the last Windows updates were installed and now it will boot up normally, but when I try to reinstall some of the updates at a time to figure out which one causes the problem, it crashes randomly.

The event viewer gives this driver error:

Ok so every time windows starts to load it freezes up then reboots. I can boot it up just fine in all three safe modes. I have used msconfig and tried to boot with the bare minimum then tried several different combinations. Windows still only loads in safe mode. I have deleted several programs and drivers including the graphics drivers. I have ran and cleared it of viruses and spyware using malwarebytes and combofix. I have also gone through with ccleaner to try and fix registry errors. I have even changed out the video card. If i take the hard drive out and put it in another computer it works just fine. Any ideas? If it was RAM or power supply then it wouldn't work in safe mode.
 

A:Xp constantly reboots but works in safe mode

if you can do a system restore when you first buy or installed the windows.
if you cant, unistall one program by one. specially one installed before the xp stop working.
also the drivers. unistall one then restart. if it does not boot up go to the safe mode again and unistall other program or driver.
up untill all the programs and drivers are removed.
did you change any bios settings? if you did reset the bios config to default.
also dont use ccleaner its really bad. here they dont like registry fixers.

I?ll start with a potential apology ? my W10 PC is crashing ? but not with a blue screen. I?m posting here because I couldn?t see anywhere more appropriate. [EDIT - there obviously was a more appropriate place & I see this post has been moved. Thankyou whoever fixed that for me!]

Background: I have a home-built desktop PC, which has been successfully running W7 Home rock solid since it was built.

Two weeks ago I allowed W7 to upgrade to W10. Initially it was quite unstable, but I uninstalled various bits of old / incompatible software and it improved dramatically. (Getting rid of Acronis 2014, which I gather is a frequent culprit for W10 crashes, worked wonders).

I've got a Pentium 4 processor, 3 Gigs of RAM, and a decent video card - and running Windows XP.

I recently intalled software for a cable that connects composite cable to a USB plug, so that I could upload from my father-in-law's camcorder (DV to AVI) to the hard drive, and then edit the files in Adobe Premier 3.0. Problem was, Adobe wouldn't recognize the camcorder - so I installed the ULead VideoStudio SE 10 software that came with the USB cable/converter. ULead's software recognized the camcorder, and after I converted the AVI files to MPeg-2 files with ULead I was able to edit the files with Adobe.

Then I started getting "this hardware may not have been installed properly" messages, and Adobe started to freeze practically everytime that I used it, forcing me to turn off the computer from the switch on the back, reboot, and get back on the program. And everything started to slow down on the computer. I figured there was probably a conflict between one or the other (or both) of the new softwares (Adobe was running fine up 'til now) so I uninstaled both of them and then ran several anti-virus and spyware/malware etc. programs just to make sure.

Now Adobe still freezes - but not as often. The major problem that I have is that my computer will crash and reboot almost every time get on it - usually, but not always when I connect to a URL via Internet Explorer, sometimes when I try to access a file from the hard drive that holds my files. ...

I've got a fairly new PC - 1.3 Gig AMD, 256mb ram, SiS 64mb video, and a fairly new motherboard. However, we've been having some extremely strange and frustrating errors. Here's the rundown on them:

- Computer will occasionally and randomly freeze, the monitor will "glitch"; the graphics will suddenly go all skewed and warped and occasionally flicker. Rebooting will often let me get back into windows, upon which point it screws up again later.

- On rebooting, occasionally it'll freeze in the middle of the boot process and I'll have to reboot again.

- Occasionally and randomly it'll suddenly and inexplicably reboot in the middle of someone using it.

We've done spyware tests, virus scans up the wazoo, disk defrags, full cleaning of the system including both fans, setting it in different spots. Everything, really, except a windows reinstall or a disk reformat, neither of which we want to go through with unless absolutely necessary. We're pretty much at our wit's end trying to figure out what the hell is wrong with it.

We also had a fairly well respected computer technician take a look at it, but could find nothing wrong. He had at first thought it to be a motherboard error, but on replacing a few parts, it worked fine, and about a week later the computer was working fine again for no apparent reason.

Any help given would be appreciated. If any more info is needed, feel free to ask.

A:Serious errors + crashes + reboots

Welp, when I come across a system acting like that and no virus can be found, I move next to the power supply. Failing ones can create strange system behavior.

Title says it all. I can post a HiJack this log if needed, I'm just trying to keep my system clean. Also, Ventrilo just closes at random as well, may as well as say that. I didn't have these problems on Vista, but I had other problems. Like my PC specs say, I'm goignto get a 4870 X2 (ATI) today, if that helps with anything.

I have an Asus Eee Laptop PC with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit which very often crashes and reboots while it is sleeping (lid closed), but never while running. When I open the lid again the system is back in windows and is showing the sort of "auto search" for solutions but it never finds any.

Any ideas?

A:Win 7 crashes and reboots while sleeping

The system is probably crashing while going back into sleep mode or while waking due to a program's wake timer. Please follow the http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...tructions.html to provide us with application, system, and crash logs so we may sort it out.

Hi Guys,

My ASUS N53 series laptop has recently started crashing every time I hibernate it. Has been fine for almost a year before this problem started. I cant recall installing any new software in the week prior to this problem starting.
No issues with performance otherwise.

I've attached the Windows 8 file collector dump

Thanks in advance.

Sorry for the delay in responding. I've been babysitting my 10 day old grandson, and he doesn't leave me much time to be online. :0)

SSD's were temperamental when they first came out, but their reliability has improved greatly over the last year or two. There are 2 things that MUST be checked on systems with BSOD's and SSD's:




1) That the SSD firmware is the latest available for the SSD
2) That the storage controller drivers on the motherboard are the most recent. They must date from late 2012 or later. This is ALL controllers, not just the one that the SSD is attached to.



Your Atheros wireless device is disabled. Is this deliberate? If so, why?

All of the memory dumps point at your Intel video adapter, please:
- download the latest, Win8 compatible graphics adapter drivers from http://downloadcenter.intel.com
- uninstall the current Intel graphics adapter from your system.
- install the freshly downloaded graphics adapter drivers
- monitor for further BSOD's

Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

I should add that the BSOD's occur once or twice a day, UNLESS I pop in a game like NBA 2k11 and play for about 20 mins, then I can make it crash pretty regularly.

Because of that I originally thought it was my video card, but I have the same symptoms if I remove the card.

I really think I'm down to either RAM or Motherboard. Hoping it's the RAM even though I can pass Memtest......

This is a problem that I have had for well over a year. I all started when I down loaded from microsoft website on 1/23/08 wmp11. It downloaded succesfully, but I could not get it to operate. Every time I tried to use it, it crashed & rebooted. Finally, I had to rollback to wmp9. All was good untill microsoft automatic download function put wmp11 back in on 4/21/08. It is the same problem, and now when I tried to rollback to wmp9 it told me that it would'nt be allowed to be downloaded to an XP system.
In event viewer it told: rebooted from a bugcheck ox0000019, ox00000020. oxfer7ed58, oxfer7ed88, oxia060006

Hi
I work from home on my computer in music programming/ recording. The problem i'm having with blue screens, crashes etc is not entirely predictable but occurs with increasing frequency when i'm using Sonar or a VST instrument or when im goofing off in Second Life.
In an effort to eradicate the problem i've defragged, reduced the space on my C drive, and kept my anti virus/adware programs up to date. Unfortunately this has had little effect.
On previous encounters with the same issue - which, incidentally, seemed to clear itself up for a while - i tried to run memtest but was not tutored or patient enough to be able to figure out the results.
If someone could be so kind as to have a look at the minidumps ive attached i'd be enormously grateful. My system specs are attached to my profile and yes - its an older system. I'll supply any additonal info you need.

Thanks very much in anticipation

Hi Mbopo,

What antivirus program(s) are you using now? Any registry cleaners? Minidumps are very subjective at best. "Old" computers can benefit from a format and clean install of the OS

I have tried searching the forums for other reports of this problem, but maybe I am not looking for the right terms.
 
I have a desktop that was apparently custom-built. It was bought from a friend we have done business with for years. The cabinet says, "HP Compaq." It has an Intel Pentium 4; the speeds of the dual processors are 2.80GHz and 2.79GHz. RAM is 1.50GB. It was recently upgraded from Windows XP SP3 to Windows 7 Ultimate (32 bit).
 
We have a similar HP desktop from the same source - therefore probably the same motherboard - which does not have the problem.
 
At completely random times - no one application or website seems to trigger it - it will suddenly stop and go into reboot, coming up in the BIOS screen that gives Windows restart options - Safe mode, Safe with networking, etc. There is no "BSOD" at the crash and if there is any system log taken I don't know yet where to look for it.
 
Sometimes it goes for quite a while without doing it, but in the past couple of days it has done it several times - at least twice today, once less than an hour after the last restart.
 
It had this problem under XP also. The upgrade to W7  was done because of Microsoft's announcement in April 2014 that support for XP was ending, not as an attempt to end this problem.
 
Is there malware out there which is known to do this? Is this a frequent HP or Pentium problem? Any ideas?

My old computer has been crashing lately, I'll leave it on and when I come back to it there's a window that says something bout recovering from a serious error.

So I go to the event viewer and under system I see this error when it crashed:

EVENT 1003
Error code 1000000a, parameter1 9a4b94f4, parameter2 0000002, parameter3 00000001, parameter4 804dbc96
When I click the link to the Help and Support center I get:

Message: Error code %1, parameter1 %2, parameter2 %3, parameter3 %4, parameter4 %5.

Explanation
A blue screen (Stop error) was reported. The message contains details about the error. A matching event with Event ID 1001 might also appear in the event log. This matching event displays information about the specific error that occurred.


When I look for ID 1001 in the event viewer I get this:
The computer has rebooted from a bugcheck. The bugcheck was: 0x1000000a (0x9a4b94f4, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x804dbc9c). A dump was saved in: C:\WINDOWS\Minidump\Mini100611-01.dmp.

Hello and thank you in advance to anyone who takes the time to assist me with my problem.

Specs:
A8N32 SLI Deluxe mobo
Enermax 400w ATX PSU
1024mb Corsair Memory
Jaton 118PCI GeForce2 MX400 32MB
Win XP Pro SP 2

The story is about a week ago my computer that has been great for the past year started rebooting when the desktop would begin to load (all desktop icons would show, programs start to appear in system tray, and then it reboots). I adjusted some settings and the problem seemed to go away, only to reappear the next day.

Now, it happens every single time, in the same way that I described. I tried loading safe mode and it works fine, ran an online virus scan and apparently there were 5 viruses on my computer, unfortunately I can't install or update any AV software while in safe mode. I took turns removing both memory sticks from the system to see if that was the cause, and nothing changed. I tried uninstalling my video card drivers (in safe mode), and nothing changed. Could it be the PSU is dying? If it were wouldn't the computer reboot when using safe mode as well?

Much appreciation for anyones input...thank you.

Okay, hi, new here.
Anyway, I use my computer for mostly madden and schoolwork. Whenever I do either one, my computer randomly reboots, no warning. It doesn't freeze beforehand or anything. However, it seems to happen slightly more with madden (its madden 06, but I don't think that would make a difference). Half of the time, the computer says "the system has recovered from a serious error" .
I'd like some help here.

Now for problem 2, whenever I play madden 06, makes no difference if I play online of offline, sometimes the game will freeze for 2 or 3 seconds, the screen will promptly go black for less than 1 second, then madden will mysteriously closed, no illegal operation, no error report. Just my desktop will suddenly appear.

Now for my comp specs:
WinXP Pro
Intel P4 2.4ghz
480 ram (a previous SiS chipset has 32 ram, I believe)
ATI Radeon 9250 PCI- 256 mb
Realtek AC97 (sound, I dunno if it's a chipset or a card.)

If more info is needed, I have attached a dxdiag report.
I appreciate the help.

A:My PC randomly reboots or crashes Madden

Check inside the box

the fist thing to do is open up the case. now check all the capasitors, if any are swollen or leaking then you need to replace the board. If no capasitors are damaged then remove the CPU haetsink and clean off the old compound on both surfaces and then apply a thin smear of new compound. reseat the heatsink and secure. remove all addin cards including the RAM. now blow out all the slots and clean the contacts on all cards. reseat all the cards in the correct slots making sure that they are seated in firmly and correctly. now bootup your system. once your system has rebooted go to the properties of "My Computer" and select the advanced tab (at the top of the properties window). select the first "settings" button and then select the advanced tab again (the one in the new window). then click on the change button. now type in the value of "960" in both the min and max fields (this is twice the size of you physical memory). click ok on all the windows, even the pop up windows that will appear. then reboot your system. once your system has rebooted, update the drivers for your ATI video card to the latest ATI catalyst drivers. this should go a long way in fixing your problems.when all this is done then try your programs again. Hope this helps. Good luck

A:System crashes and reboots when in standby

In a case like this yes; while the updates may appear to look like they are for your model laptop; sometimes they are meant for other models within the laptop "family". I would try and do a system restore back to before the updates were installed and i believe that should resolve the issue. If it doesn't, then there is some other underlying issue going on.

Story goes...

It all started a few days ago when I uploaded a few videos from a paintball match. I uploaded those, and proceeded to play World of Warcraft with two WoWs open on the same computer (always do this, never a problem before). All of a sudden, I get an error, one WoW gets an error, and the other freezes, forcing a "power button" reboot.

Ever since, whenever I try to play WoW, it freezes. Whenever I try to edit my videos, it crashes and freezes. Whenever I try to watch videos, it freezes. It's just a big mess of problems whenever I do something that requires my computer to think....

Since I know the question is coming...

I'm pretty stupid when it comes to Hardware... my brother built this computer for me. Is there an easy way that I can link system spec to you all?

Thanks in advance,
Mike

P.S.

My version of Windows Movie Maker is cracked. Don't laugh. I know it comes free, but Microsoft would only ship it to me for some reason, and wanted me to pay like $10 shipping. Figured I'd take my chances. My chances ended up screwing me over, as I'm pretty sure this cracked copy contains a virus. The program is not on my programs list. Whenever I try to manually deleted it, it just brings itself back from the recycle bin on it's own. AVG doesn't see it as a virus... that doesn't mean it isn't though right? Thanks.

Hello,

I've been experiencing seemingly random BSODs, mostly during gaming but also after gaming or even before doing anything at all.

Sometimes, but much less often, there's been random reboots or crashes without a BSOD.

What I've tried so far.
Updated drivers for graphics, network and chipset.Uninstalled Avast, now using Windows DefenderReinstalled WindowsMemtest86+ for all my RAM together, 30 passes, no errorsMemtest86+ for each piece of RAM alone, 70-75 passes each, no errors

All the memory dumps in my archive are from after reinstalling in Windows, before that I also experienced the same kind of issues.

Between the BSOD of Jan 4 and Jan 17 I upgraded my graphics card from MSI 6950 to Sapphire R9 290. Same issues with both cards.

My full system specs are in my profile.

Thanks in advance!

A:Different BSODs, sometimes crashes or reboots without BSOD

Good troubleshooting steps. I commend you.

We have a 0x116 stop on our hands. That's a tdr timeout: Graphics adapter could not re-initialize, so it takes Windows down with it.

Give your Logitech keyboard driver friend an update that he needs:

And Logitech gamepad driver also is asking for an update:

OpenVPN software needs to be removed (better) or updated:

OpenVPN - Open Source VPN

Update Truecrypt to latest:


Code:
truecrypt truecrypt.sys Tue Feb 07 04:09:36 2012 (4F30EA50)


TrueCrypt - Downloads

...and that should do it.

If issues persist (I do not think they will), then run Driver Fusion in safe mode to clean all ATI/AMD video files and settings (not chipset or anything else!). Reboot and install the latest driver for the video card from AMD's site, normally.

If you need more help, let me know, but like I said - I do not think it will come to that.

Enjoy.

Hi

XP(SP2),IE7, Athlon 64 3.2, 1GB, geforce 7600GT.

During scans on both Spybot and Adaware the PC reboots itself before the scan is complete. On both products it is always at the same place (can't tell exactly which file on Spybot) but on Adaware it is during scan of 'CLSID\{'various letters/numbers'}' files - can't tell exactly which one but possibly starting E... .I don't think it is creating a log file because of immediate crash & reboot.

After this AVG doesn't load fully - AVG anti virus and Resident shield components don't load. It then takes longer to complete load of items in System Tray. If I do system restore these problems go away until I do next spyware scan when they return.

Windows Xp SP3 - My computer was rebooting randomly, then would not start up completely at all. I tried doing a system restore, but the computer would freeze up during the restore and then reboot. I purchased a new hard drive, installed it, and am still having the same problem. I have opened the case and unplugged everything that did not originally come with the computer, and cleaned out all dust. Please help!

A:HP Pavilion Crashes and Reboots during restore

Freezing usually is caused by overheating. Since you cleaned the computer you can rule this out. And a failing Power Supply Unit. Take the side off of the computer and report the make, model# and wattage of the PSU. Boot into Setup (Bios) to PC Health and report the Temperatures and the +12V line of the PSU.
