Preferred Solution: system crashed

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.)

A: system crashed

Hi and Welcome to TSF!

If you did a full reinstall then the new OS may have deleted all of your files.

How did you go about upgrading from Home Premium to Ultimate?

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?

A:Svchost crashed, windows start up crashed, local session manager crashed

Have you tried uninstalling Commodo to see if it is causing the problem?

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.

Hello I recently installed suse on my computer and I also have windows xp installed on a seperate partition. Since I am an idiot I was on windows xp and I decided to delete the suse partition trough windows. After I deleted the suse partition, I restarted windows and like ususal it said Grub loading, but I got an error because obviously suse is no longer there, so I put in the win xp disc and tried to repair windows. I thought if I deleted the 956 mb swap partition it would correct the system from trying to load Grub, but it actually made things worse and now I cannot even load the windows xp disc. Now when I try to load the xp disc it says inspecting system configuration then the screen goes blank.........I dont know what to do! Help!

My windows vista crashed for no apparent reason and it will continuously direct me to a black screen with an option to continue normally or launch startup repair.

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

Root cause found:
----------------------------------
Startup Repair has tried several times but can still not determine the cause of the problem."

I have tried System restore to an older date but it did not work

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!

Hiiiiiiiiii all

My XP.system have been crashed , I was doing some particular updates and when it done and reboot the system I can not log in to the XPsystem .

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 was working with my "backup" computer.......Win XP SP2 and ran an AVG scan.......anti-rootkits. I removed 5, and one was fixed. Later on I shut down the computer when a storm came through, and about an hour ago powered it back up. Windows will NOT boot up. It continued to recycle, and I am unable to get into SAFE mode, nor will it boot with the last known good settings. I tried "debugging mode", "disable automatic restart on system failure", and "safe mode with networking" (out of desperation), but nothing's working. I do not have a recovery disc, but I do have the OS re-installation disc that came with the computer, plus the SP2 disc I got from Microsoft.What's my next step? Thanks.

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.

As title indicates my system has crashed. I figured since the hdd was pretty corrupted it would be ok to format it using a vista img since I have a valid product key and there lyes my problem.

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?

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.

My question is, is there a way the I can hook up the broken system to another computer and simply copy the files off of it? I know the exact directories of the files I want to get. Or is this something I'd be better off taking it to the local best buy for? Or just call it a day and re-format?

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

I think Spyware crashed my system (XP SP2) it was acting slow and as soon as I went to install Trend Micro anti spyware it literally shut me down. Now I dont know if spyware is that smart but anyway my desktop is worthless right now. It freezez before safe mode starts and I cant accomplish anything else. All I want is to retrive my files and pictures off of the drive then i will have no problem reloading win xp. I tried a USB to IDE cable but I cant access any of my files it tells me access denied. Any suggestions please let me know., Thank you

A:I think spyware crashed my system

Do you get the Access Denied error for all files, or only things inside of your Desktop or Documents and Settings folder? You may want to see if this helps: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421



Otherwise you could download " The Ultimate Boot CD" and follow these instructions to burn the CD. Note that you will need any OEM or RETAIL XP Home or Pro CD with SP1 or SP2 to burn the cd. You can boot from the CD and then copy the files to a USB drive.

An alternative boot cd would be a Linux Live CD if you only have recovery CDs.

Let me know if you get any errors when trying to copy the files to a USB drive. There may be a tiny, tiny chance that the virus altered your hard drive permissions.

Hope it helps,

Ok....Everyone has the right to say "I told ya so!" I have read the posts about the freaking SP2 monstor. I tried to take all the necessary precautions such as getting rid of any spyware and uninstalling my adaware and spybot programs before downloading SP2. Now this is what happened...I restarted after downloading and my system does four things...1. displays the microsoft XP load page for 6 seconds. 2. Blank screen for 16 seconds. 3. HP logo on blue screen for 4 to 6 seconds. 4. Blank screen for 6 seconds amd then loops back to the microsoft XP load page. I have contacted MSN support about this and was told that I have to call their SP2 support that has a different number and hours that they work. So I am on my daughters computer posting this dire request for help while waiting the time to pass for the freaking peeps at MSN to get their sorry butts to work. And to thing that regular support suggested that I call HP for help at $35.00 an hour! Told MSN that they would get the bill and for that I was promptly hung up on! Ok Mr. Bill Gates; I got a bone to pick with you!

Well,my system crashed about an hour ago . I lost some programs ( reinstalled them ) but the big problem is the start up menu with it's empty folders .
System restore will not work, there's only one restore point and it's made after the crash .
I already fixed the Administrative Tools folder thanks to this tutorial
Administrative Tools - Restore Shortcuts
but these folders are still empty:
Accessories:
- Accessibility
- System Tools
- Windows PowerShell
Maintenance
Games

A:System crashed , empty folders .

The simplest fix would be to backup your data then do a recovery to factory installed state and reload your data. Not normally something I would recommend but with the number of folders you show having problems it may be difficult to fix them all and even if you do, have you fixed everything?

I ran Partition Magic 8.0 to resize a partition on my computer. When it was done with the process an error message appeared and below it was the instruction "click any key to reboot". I clicked and the system now will not reboot. It goes to a dos screen that gives me the option to boot normally, last known good config, safe mode, etc. No matter which option I try the system brings me back to that page. It happens when I powerdown and unplug the system as well. How do I get my computer to reboot? Thanks for the help!
 

A:Partition Magic Crashed My System

The infamous "an" error message.. IIRC there was a nasty bug in PM8 that made it botch up partition tables. One should see what exactly is broken and then either fix the filesystem and/or the partition table.

You did back up all your important data and created the Partition Magic boot floppies, right?

I am self taught on a Vista laptop over the past 5 years. Last year I was given an Acer 1640Z laptop which has the XP OS, and have kept it up to date for a relative. Today I pressed the wrong button which started to wipe the XP. I switched off immediately, however, I now cannot get it to boot up, or even boot from a Macrium Reflect rescue DVD. The message on screen is that the file is missing or corrupt,i.e.- Windows root\system 32\hal.dll

It looks like any remedy will be too technical for me (70yrs )

DO NOT THINK I have posted this in the incorrect forum, why I am posting here is the Acer laptop has an official sticker on it, quoting " Designed for Windows XP - Windows Vista Capable."

The question is can I convert the Acer from XP to Vista, since I still have the disks which came with the Dell Vista laptop when I bought it new ?

Hoping for some positive guidance in ths matter.

A:Acer Laptop XP system - crashed.

That error is a bad one to get because it indicates very low level corruption. You will have to reinstall XP. The hard drive will probably have to be reformatted. You can't use a copy of Vista that came with a dell on an Acer so unless you can find a retail copy of Vista you are stuck with XP or Linux. By now it will be too late to get the Vista disks from Acer but you can try.

I went through the following Windows Setup, it indicated it was loading various files when finally I got to a set up screen and clicked on R for Recovery Console and thats when I received this message: The path or file specified is not valid next line was the following :\>

No C: drive was specified so I contacted you guys... please help

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.

I tried to set up a dual boot system ( Vista Ultimate and Win 7 Pro) this aft and my computer he miraged and froze up.
Finally got it working again but I don't know how, just luck.
I followed the recommendations and made copy of Win 7 on ISO disk, I think it works but I'm not sure, and I unplugged the drive which has Vista on it and tried to boot. My computer froze solid even before it loaded OS file.
Why do I need to unplug my C: drive? Is that the only way to do a clean install?

A:Dualboot set up system crashed BIG time

To ad to the above post.
I have to do a clean install because you can't upgrade Vista Ultimate to Win 7 Pro.

A:System error message - crashed PC

Have you looked for a patch for the program? Sometimes also Windows will have an update that will fix compatibility problems with certain software, but I think a patch for the program would be more likely. You may end up having to change some settings somewhere, but I don't know what that would be. Also make sure that your graphics/physics card has the latest stable drivers, as a last resort (I say last resort because sometimes earlier versions of a driver can work better with some programs than newer ones).

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...

Hello,

I am new to forum and have a problem that I just cannot solve for the life of me. I fix people's computer's on the side when they have virus's ect. I can usually fix any computer no problem, but this one I think is pretty far gone. I got an HP Pavillion running Vista x64 computer from a friend of mine yesterday, and I am at my wits end with it! I have been searching all day for the answer to my question on the net, but to no avail! I thought maybe someone on this forum could possibly give me some insight on this. Here is the issue:

The computer starts up fine. It goes to the log in screen. I type in the password. It goes to the desktop for maybe 10 seconds and then restarts on it's own. I notice there is that Malware program Internet Security (I am pretty sure it is but not completely positive because it only stays up for 10 seconds or less). 2 things pop up and you can see it "scanning" quickly and then all of these "trojans" "spyware" ect. show up on the screen. Then the screen goes black and reboots. I can't click on ANYTHING while it is booting up. Also I cannot get into safe mode AT ALL either! It goes to boot up, and then it will go black screen and just reboot the computer again! Also you should know I have pressed all of the F keys and tried all the settings pertaining to those keys including all of the F8 options. I do not have a recovery disc either. I have tried EVERYTHING just to get onto safe mode to scan the PC and get rid... Read more

I let Spy sweeper do a complete scan of my computer and it said it had found a potential rootkit mask found in the computer. This message comes every time I do a scan with this. After quarantining, it asked me to restart the computer and ..I couldnt't log into the computer again. A black window came and restarted again..I pressed F8 and logged into the computer in safe mode. I did a full scan with Kaspersky Antivirus and it did not find any dangerous objects.

That potential rootkit was located in C:\Documents and Settings\C2\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Messenger\[email protected]\SharingMetadata.

When i restarted from the safe mode, a blue window appeared and i was able to log in.

I dont know if its a virus or something else. This blue window appeares to my room mate too. Do you think we are hacked?

Hello

2' time this week that this occur

My system is always running. When I came back to work this morning,, some of the running software where closed and other not responding. When I tried to close Excel, no question to save was asked and it closed all the others software running on my PC leaving only the Windows colored flag on the screen.

I was not able to run any applications, nor to closed my PC other way than pressing the power button.

- I did a sfc /scannow. All normal
- I check with malwharebyte: 1 Malwhare removed
- Kaspersky did not detect any virus
- Corsair S.M.A.R.T. status seems normal.

Question:
- What should I look for?
- I suspect my SSD drive, but don't know how to validate this suspicion
- Could it be a fluctuation on the power supply? If so, any tool to detect it
- Could it be a memory leek? One of the software that I use may use a lot of memory for its history. Could it leak and corrupt data in the Windows files system?

This is an intermittent problem. I had similar problem few years ago and now it seems to reappear.

Any help appreciated

Martin

Hi,

My system (Windows 7 64 bit) was running a bit slow here and there earlier today, then all my programs froze up (although my mouse still worked), so I re-booted. I got some error about a disc error then was sent to the black screen with the white loading bar, followed by the black windows screen with a green loading bar. The start-up repair dialogue came up and tried to help, but couldn't fix whatever the problem was.

I went to the command prompt and ran chkdsk c: and it showed it as being fine, but only ~100 large (my C: is usually a ~60gig SSD). I ran it on d: (which turned out to be my 1gb hd) and e: (which turned out to be my actual boot disc, the SSD). I tried to run chkdsk e: /r, but it gave some error after a while, said it was in RAW format (which it certainly wasn't when I installed it) and then failed to recognize it in future attempts to run chkdsk on it. I ran bootrec.exe and it said I didn't have any Windows installations on any drives. I went to restart it again at some point, and it went to the BIOS screen, to the screen where it lists devices (like normal) loaded the white bar again, then gave me a bsod.

I found my dvd for Windows 7 and loaded my BIOS options and set all 3 boot devices as CD Drive, but it still does the same thing where it appears to be trying to load off the SSD/HD, then white loading bar, then bsod. I can't really figure out anything to even do to trouble shoot at this point, as I'm stuck in this bsod loop. ... Read more

A:System crashed now almost completely unresponsive

well, when you are on the main screen of your bios (in the resume when booting not in the config area) there is always a F XX button to force to be booted to. in newer pcs its F11 but in your bios might be different try to read that screen.
also you might have to delete all your partitions to do a clean install. try to get a live cd from linux and do dvd with backups (if you have differents hard disks then just copy and paste dont do dvd backups)
then delete all the partitions on the disk that has the windows 7 and start all over.
