Preferred Solution: Computer crashes upon loading windows.

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.)

Computer crashes before loading windows, access bios
If the diagnosis does not give an error, I would be able to repair windows from an ISO file, because no access to safe mode.

Hi
 
Looks like your hard disk is not detected. Please enter in to BIOS setup and verify if the HDD is detected or not. You can enter in to the BIOS setup by pressing F2 during powering on.
 
Here is an example BIOS screen . If the HDD is none, it is not detected.

Ok, I have basically no computer knowledge, but I will describe my problem to the best of my ability. The other day my cousin came over for a barbeque, he is supposably the family computer genius so I let him on my computer. He started editing the registry, saying he was removing so called "viruses". I have no knowledge of what he added/removed to/from the registry during this time but when I next went on the computer after he had left (all he did after editing the registry was exit the registry editer) I was unable to click on any of my desktop short cuts or the buttons on the menu bar such as start. I then rebooted by holding the power button thinking everything would be fine but the computer froze after the windows xp loading screen, showing the screen where you login to your account, except with only a windows xp logo in the middle of the screen, no login tabs. I tried rebooting numerous times but the problem persisted. I have no idea where to go from here. If any extremely smart and computerly talented people have any ideas about solving my problem, please explain in full detail, as I have only basic computer knowledge. I may not be able to answer any questions you have for several days as I can only do this at a friend?s house now. Thanks for reading this and I apologise for any bad spelling/grammar. I am only fourteen years old.

I did a clean install of a XP Pro SP2 (I got hold of a new one to replace my old XP Home). I followed instructions I obtained from Techspot except that I loaded the system drivers before I got all the upgrades for Windows (it is now running XP Pro SP3).

Everything went well until I loaded Yahoo Messenger and I immediately had the system crash and reboot. I received a Windows "your system has recovered from a serious error" message that suggested it was caused by driver or hardware incompatibility. When the system rebooted, Messenger started to load automatically - I clicked the X to close it and the system crashed again and rebooted with the same Windows error message.

I tried to open several other things and each time the system crashed and rebooted. Ultimately I opened Control Panel and removed Yahoo Messenger and then did a search and deleted all files relating to it. The system operated fine at this point.

I downloaded several different versions of YM but each time it crashed - often before it had finished installing properly (when this happened, on rebooting, the YM shortcut was on the desktop and YM automatically started to load but didn't complete. Sometimes YM was in the Control Panel list when this happened, on other occasions, even though it appeared on the desktop and started to load it wasn't in the list of programs in CP that could be removed. I had to delete all the YM files and folders by finding them first in Search.

Hello there,
 
I've been having issues with my computer for the past 3 days and have tried to solve the issue from what I've dug up online and familiar posts on this website to no avail. Whenever I load up a game (ex. Dark Souls 3, Overwatch, etc.) my computer shuts down unexpectedly and restarts itself. No bluescreen or error messages, no new minidump files.
 
I've tried to disable restart on critical failure yet it continues to reboot on it's own. I've ran HWMonitor and haven't seen anything that seems out of place unless I'm missing something. I've ran prime95, no unexpected shutdown. I then ran FurMark and my computer would instantly shutdown and restart so I assumed the GPU was going bad so I brought it over to a friends to try it with his system and it ran Grand Theft Auto 5 without problems. I then removed one stick of ram and tested them individually, 1 caused an instant crash upon loading up my character in Dark Souls 3 and the other did fine for 15 minutes until I crashed again.
 
I am now curious if this is a PSU issue and wondering if there is anything I can try to tell if the PSU is simply dying, if my version of Windows 7 is now on the fritz, or if there is something I've overlooked entirely.
 
My computer specs are:
 
i7-4790K quad core (Never overclocked)
asus z97-k/csm lga 1150 atx intel motherboard
16gb (2x8gig) RAM
Geforce GTX 970
Thermaltake 600 watt PSU
Windows 7
 
Thank you in advance!

A:Computer crashes and reboots upon loading games.

Another thing to note I have tried uninstalling and deleting every nVidia driver and folder and installed all new versions without any difference. I did not change the registries however because I did not want to take that risk. 
 
This is also a screenshot of HWMonitor without a game open.

The computer in question crashes every time a game (WoW, UT2004, Black and White 1&2 all tested) is loaded, after about 2-4 minutes. Usually works fine on other programs. Crashed once on load of a youtube page.

The crash goes like this: freezes, sound starts looping, screen goes black, then monitor shows it is receiving no signal. The sound looping does not occur in WoW.

Up to date drivers for both video and sound, ram passes memtest, PSU rated for 850 watts (way more than this needs).

Tried unplugging the sound card to see if it was the problem, and now it won't boot except in safe mode...

any suggestions?

A:Computer always crashes a few minutes after loading any game, and one other time.

Ok, plugged sound back in, now it boots.

Still won't play games though. Going to try uninstalling the card again.

So, my computer is about 2.5 years old and I have been facing massive problems with flashplayer.

The issue is this: Whenever I run videos with my favorite drama's, the video player would then stop loading cause the whole screen to freeze whilst still being able to move my mouse. Then the computer would turn black and restart and tells me that I need to insert a new boot device or boot media in order to boot up my computer. So What is the problem here? I have downgraded flash player beta 12.0 to 11.9 and I have defrag my computer. Usually, mozilla firefox would tell me, the shockwave flashplayer plugin has crashed and allows me to refresh, but it has become so alarmingly frequent that every other video I view would result in me needing to Hard reset my computer by turning off the sockets.

Continued usage would cause me to freeze every half an hour of usage even after resetting. The question is am i overheating,something too? It all started when other programs im running concurrently with the video stopped responding and my computer keeps freezing before it restarts itself. I was running flash games that were downloaded.

How do I fix this?

A:Computer Restarts when Video Stops Loading/ Flash Player Crashes

first of all id try a non Beta version of flash. make sure its the x64 bit version and not the 32bit. For some unknown reason the automatic flash update always downloads the 32bit version for me..
Next id update all of you drivers (most important GPU and chipset) this will eliminate any driver conflicts that may pop up.

Hello,

I had recently done some modification to my wife's computer and now it will no longer load up. It goes through the hardware screen for the motherboard, begins to show the Windows 7 icon, but suddenly stops and restarts itself as the icon begins to come together.

Today, I swapped out her motherboard, processor, and graphics card with new ones. All of the cables are hooked up correctly, but I'm unsure what the problem could be. Below are the parts I have put in it now:
Sapphire Radeon R7 250 (graphics card)
ASUS M5A78-M LX Plus (motherboard)
AMD FX 6-Core 3.5 GHZ 14.0 MB (processor)
If there's more that's needed to be posted, I will look it up, but that's what was put into it today.

Windows Xp crashs during windows loading screen and reboots. Displays a blue screen with no errors on it only the stop information, 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xBA52F380, 0xBA52f07c,0x8AD5980F). This blue screen stays up for less than a second, needed to video record it to get the numbers. Windows doesn't load in normal mode, or any of the safe modes. I have tried chkdsk /r and /p. Bootcfg /scan fails, and /rebuild also fails. I have also cleared Cmos on my motherboard, which didn't work either. I also tested the ram, tried booting with 1 of 3 sticks in 3 times rotating the sticks, I wouldn't think all 3 would fail at the same time. The HD does show serial numbers tho and appears to be working. This all started when i was running a virus scanner, it crashed, and the problems started. Any help is appreciated, I have yet to try fixmbr, and a repair install. The fixmbr says it could cause a problem with the HD, that is the reason I haven't tried it yet. Any suggestions or help is appreciated. Thanks

I have been having problems with my family computer where Windows gets to the laoding screen and crashes, which it does in a loop and then occasioanlly turns on. I had this problem a while back but a change of hard drive and a clean install of Windows 7 (it was previously XP) seemed to of cured it. But last night the problem returned, there was a BSOD out of no where and then it returned into its looping process.

I switched out the current hard drive, RAM and CPU with my other gaming computer and it also caused that to crash. So I first took out the hard drive and it still crashed but swithing the RAM again seemed to of cured the problem. However, when I put different RAM in the computer with the initial problems it still came up with the same problem.

So my Hard Drive crashed today, and I thought of using the HDD from my laptop which I hardly ever use. When I connected it, my computer started up as normal, but once the loading screen appears it shuts down and restarts.

I have run the Repair tool several times, but it doesn't fix my problem.. Any ideas why Windows refuses to start? Is it a hardware problem? I believe, last time I checked it worked fine in my laptop.

The HDD that I'm using from my laptop is a WD Scorpio Blue WD3200BE

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible. If you are overclocking STOP You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking. To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder. The procedure:




* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine. * Zip up the copy. * Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button. *If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.



To ensure minidumps are enabled:




* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter. * Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button. * Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked. * Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies). * Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump. * OK your way out. * Reboot if changes have been made.

Hi all,

I have a problem with my new computer. I am also new to windows 7 and am still getting used to everything. On the first start up of the day windows crashes to a BSOD just after the loading screen. I start windows repair on the restart and let it do its thing, then windows starts up fine. I doubt that windows repair did anything as no messages came up on startup or during the repair.

I don't have any information of the BSOD, my motherboard restarts after the crash and I don' get a chance to read the problem, I will post the problem when I have worked out how to stop it automatically restarting.

The computer runs fine after it is "warmed up" so to speak, and I am guessing thats why it starts after Start up Recovery has done its thing which appears to be nothing

I have attached 2 minidump files from previous crashes, windows didn't make one of the most recent.

Anywho, any help would be greatly appreciated, it's not really a problem but more of a nuisance.

A:Windows Crashes to BSOD after loading screen

ok, heres an update.

I stopped windows restarting after a crash and I could write down some info about the BSOD that came up most recently. It had the stop codes 0x0000008e (0XC0000005, 0x82CD9A8A, 0x8C7936A4, 0x00000000) with an error with NTFS.SYS PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA.

Windows didn't just start up this time, I had to run startup recovery, and this time it said that it couldn't fix the problem and sent up an error in the system file integrity check part of the test with a code of 0x490.

I told windows to make a full dump file, so I cant send it my bad. I have changed but any help would be greatly appreciated.

Greetings BleepingComputer,
 
I am having issue with my machine playing games. Here are the circumstances of the crashes:
 
Whenever I open up any game (it didnt used to be this way) once I get to the main menu and/or the exact moment I reach 100% of loading a level, the machine crashes and instantly reboots (no BSOD just a brief shut down into a restart). You should also know that this is a fresh HDD, right off the shelf with a fresh install of EVERYTHING.
 
Some of the procedures I have done: I have uninstalled and reinstalled my graphics drivers. Installed older versions of graphics drivers. Uninstalled and reinstalled games. Reseated my video card and RAM. Run any and all programs as administrator. Run any and all programs in compatibility mode for windows 7.
 
Some procedures I have failed to accomplish: I have tried using the program "WhoCrashed" to get the dump files of crashes but I/it is unable to obtain them. I am unsure what I am doing wrong and hopfully you can point me in the right direction, should you need those files... which I imagine you will.
 
Hopfully what I have described to you is an adequate starting point, although I am certain I am missing details.

Portege A200 Windows XP;

Before windows is fully loaded a blue screen appears and the machine shuts down. Prior to this the machine was intermittenlty switching off for no apparent reason. The last thing I did before this happened was to update to IE 7. Ran scandisk but did not fix anything.

Can start in safemode but cannot uninstall IE7 in safemode. Selected option to load windows from last config that worked option, but windows crashes before finishing loading. Used system restore to take it back to January 08 but still same problem.

Any advice would be appreciated.

In such cases I really recommend you to make clean OS installation. As you can see nothing helps. I really do not know what you can try but I really do not believe you will be able to do anything.

Back up all your important data and make clean OS installation. I know it is pretty radical solution but, believe me, the best one.

Hello wolf, and welcome to Sevenforums!

Perhaps your hardware isn't working. I'd start with the memory. Remove all but 2 GB of RAM from the computer and see if it boots. If it doesn't, replace the RAM with the RAM you have removed. If it boots, check each RAM using MEMtest: RAM - Test with Memtest86+ - created by Jonathan_King

Remove the bad RAM.

When it manages to turn itself on it all works ok. However oftentimes I have to turn it on and turn it off repeatedly until it finally starts to function.

After going through the same problem today, the pc finally turned on properly and I got into Windows. A few moments after that, the electricity was cut.

Now the pc manages to load up until the Windows XP logo and then crashes. At the loading screen the pc makes three grinding sounds (don't know how to call this... my pc is purring at me ). A blue screen appears for a split second and the pc reboots. No matter what option I select, be it to load in safe mode, last good configuration, and so on, the pc always resets at the XP loading process.

I believe it has something to do with hardware because of the issue with the pc intermittently not even booting up.

I am not too savvy when it comes to pc's, can someone suggest what may be wrong?

I'm trying to load windows XP on my computer I just built and I can't get past the set up. I put in the disc, loaded windows, everything went smoothly, it went to automatically reboot after it finished copying all the set up files and then when the computer restarts it loads off of the disc to set up windows again. When I go into the set up, it has the partition made and space taken up on the hard drive so it has loaded windows successfully. When I take the disk out and restart, it tells me to put in a boot disk. Don't know how to get it to load off the hard drive to install windows xp. The BIOS only allow to select a boot method, can only select 3.5 floppy or the cd-rw. Don't know what to do, any thoughts???

Ok, that's not right. Any BIOS worth using has an option to set the HD to be in the boot order. It's got to be in there, or the whole computer would be completely useless: Otherwise, you could NEVER boot to the hard drive, and no BIOS writer (well, no SANE BIOS writer) would ever do such a thing unless he expected that the computer wouldn't have a hard drive... which is usualy only the case in specialised units, not in PCs.
Is there a "Load BIOS Defaults" option that you can see?
What's your BIOS version, and what's the make and model of your Motherboard?

Hi everyone,
 
Please forgive any errors as i am typing this on an ipod touch. I have a laptop running Windows 7 that does not boot the operating system. When I turn it on it displays the emachines logo and "press f2 to enter setup". If I press f2 nothing happens unless I hold the button as the computer is starting, in which case it says "please wait", and then doesn't do anything further.
 
The laptop was working fine until yesterday, when I was using it with just the battery, and it powered off (presumably because the battery had run out...the battery does not work well and I usually use it with the power cord). When I plugged it in and tried to power up this is what happened.
 
I've read some tutorials and tried the following: pressing f8 as it powers on (does nothing), holding esc as it powers up (shows some system information but no further options), pressing f2 as it starts up (nothing as previously mentioned). I don't have the system boot disk - a further complication is that I'm working remotely from Mexico (so really need this laptop). Is there anything else I can try to get this started?
 
Many thanks,
Ben
 

A:Computer not loading Windows

Hi
 
From the description you provided, it looks like  a hardware problem. Hanging at  "Please wait" while entering BIOS normally indicates an undetected hard disk. Of course there are other reasons but first thing you should try is unplugging the HDD and check if the system can enter in to the BIOS. You can access the HDD by removing a small cover in the bottom.

Computer: Not with the computer in question now, but here are some general specs. Running Windows Vista 32 bit Home Premium on a pretty cheap desktop Emachine T series 3626 which came with 1g of ram and 150g of free space.

Issue: After loading bios, booting from hdd, computer loses power during vista loading screen. After 4-5 tries computer does boot successfully but can lose power again at any time with no obvious reasons as to why. Computer won't even boot in safe mode.

*Note. If the computer had been running recently however, the first boot attempt is usually successful.

I have been dealing with this problem for about a month and a half now. It seemed to pop up just after I made some changes to startup config., I copied Reason 4.0 (music production program) and World of Warcraft to my 500 gig external hard drive and have ran both those programs from either my internal HDD or external HDD and also save data on both. I may have changed bios/cmos during that time but it's unlikely. About a 6 months ago I overclocked my computer, and a year ago I installed an extra 500mb of ram. Also my tower tipped over about 2 months ago while it was running but the hit wasn't hard and the computer kept running normally. I wish I could tell you exactly when this issue started and whether or not it was before or after the changes I have made in the past month and a half but I can't remember. Anyways I've tired all sorts of solutions. Here is what I can remember doing.

After this I tried reinstalling windows, which seemed to work. but then after the restart in the installtion it freezes close to finishing.
I don't have a clue whats causing this or how to fix it, any help?

My desktop (windows 7) was working fine but I had to move it to another room for a couple of days. When I plugged it back, windows 7 was endlessly loading and i could only enter in safe mode but with no solutions. After trying many things and failing, I've decided to install Ubuntu and everything worked fine.

Then I thought that, maybe, if I would install windows now, things would work fine again. I even installed a different windows ? Windows 8.1.
But the problem is there, whenever I restart, it doesn't load completely and I have to use the windows 8 reparation tools to access windows again. Lately it seems that choosing restart (in reparation tools), it works.

After many tries, it seems that if I turn off the switch in the power, or unplug the power chord, it enters windows in the first attempt.

Can anyone tell me what is the problem?

Thanks

P.S.
Well, i can confirm, if i turn it off on the switch and then turn it on, everything works fine (it seems). Any clue of what it might be?

On start up it gets to the Windows 98 screen and after about 10 secs the bar freezes up and stays that way indefinately. If I reboot in Safe mode everything loads up fine, but no matter what I seem to change I cant get it to boot in Normal mode. The biggest problem I have is that in Safe mode it isn't registering my dvd drives either so I cant do a fresh install to fix things. I know this isn't really much to go on, but I hope someone can help me out.

Edit: It also occasionally reboots at the same point... and (I dont know if this happens for everyone...) the point is just after the Windows 98 loading screen flickers once.... which I used to notice right before it continued into windows.

On my personally built desktop I recently encountered a problem where my computer restarts when loading windows. More specifically, when I power on my PC it first sends me to the screen where you see, "we apologize for the inconvenience...windows did not start sucessfully...recent hardware or software changes may have caused this." it then gives you the five options: Start windows normally, Start windows with last known good configuration, safe mode, safe mode with cmd prompt, and safe mode with networking.

When I choose either of the first two it begins to start windows but then suddenly restarts and goes back to the previously mentioned screen. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. If I choose any of the three safe mode options I can watch as it loads the required system files for windows. They speed along for about three seconds and then stop on a file and then the computer restarts itself again. All three stop on the same file, "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)/WINDOWS/system32/Drivers/agp440.sys" I am assuming when I choose the non-safe mode options it is restarting on the sae file even though I can't see it happen.

Usually when a computer does something of this nature it can be because of a few things, power, cooling, or possibly a virus. I calculated for my sysrem how much power it needed and by my estimations it's ok. All my fans are spinning so I don't think it's cooling. I recently reformatted to RAID 0 but I install and...

I don't think this is of help but I'm having the exact same problem. I just got a new motherboard and p4 2.66 processor but it does this exact same thing. Although after the lines of partition stuff you mention I'll get a flash of a windows xp screen then a flash of a blue screen. F5 or F4 brought up a screen that gave me a choice of not restarting on errors. The screen says to check the disk, controller, or for viruses. Now I know there's nothing wrong with the hard drive cause I'm using it right now (reinstalled old motherboard etc). The only thing I can think of is the controller on the new mobo is bad. But I'm lurking to see if there's any bright ideas coming. It has occured to me that my power supply isn't up to the new mobo I'm only running a 300 watt ( have a 550w sitting here waiting to fix this problem first).

I am running WinXp Pro with Firefox 37, it has ran fine without problems really until now. Started Firefox and before it even opened I get a crash report that gives me the option to restart it or quit. No matter how many times I try to restart, even in safe mode it does the same thing, crashes before opening. So, I uninstalled it and removed all traces of it in my Reg and did a search for any remaining bits and deleted them. Even download Revo and it shows no signs of Firefox/Mozilla anywhere. Still had the origal install file so I reinstalled, did the same thing. Download a new version, did the same thing. So then I downloaded Opera and I'm using Internet Exploder 8 all this time which won't connect to certain sites I reckon because it's no longer supported. But, anyway I download Opera for win xp several times with the same result, it wouldn't load/install. And yes I turned off my Norton antivirus to install. So All I have is IE 8 and it's as worthless as you know what. Anyone have any ideas?
Oh! and I did a virus scan and a Malwarebytes scan with no results. Something doesn't want me online.

Hi there,

It could be that Windows XP is no longer supported but try this, download/install "Google Chrome" and see if the same issue happens.

By any chance, do you have another computer at your place running Windows XP? If so, install Mozilla Firefox on that computer and if assuming everything works fine on that computer, then the issue relies on that specific computer you're using.

Exactly what it says above.

I use a program to support a Flash chat client, and this program forces links to open in IE. This presents a problem when I accidentally click a .png link, as IE7 opens, quickly flashes the Quicktime logo (which it uses to load .png, apparently), freezes, and Windows Explorer stops wroking right until I kill IE in the task manager. To clarify "stops working right," whenever I click any other window in the task bar, it just flashes instead of changing to that window.

Firefox is my normal browser, but as I said above, this program forces links to open in IE. I tested this by navigating to a .png image in IE independent of the chat client, and I get the same problem, so it isn't caused by the client.

I'm running an HP Pavilion m9040n media PC. Vista Home Premium SP1, 32-bit. 3GB DDR2 RAM. Upgraded with a GeForce 8800GT graphics card.

I know IE doesn't support .png as much as Firefox does, but other people who use the same client and click the same links don't have crashing problems, so...

Thanks!

Hi. first time here =x

anyway let me get to the point. I just bought a copy of FF8 from my nearest retail bookstore and it installed pretty smoothly (less than 1minute, give or take). However when i try to run the program all i could see was a black screen and nothing else. After that when i pressed ctrl + alt + delete and pressed on task manager, the FF8 program had the status of 'Not Responding'.

I also tried to changed to compatibility mode to WinXP,Windows 2000 and Windows 98/Me but it also results in the same problem -- black screens.

Also when i changed compatibility mode to Windows Me/98 i recieve this error :
"The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click OK to terminate the problem."
This error is not seen when i change mode to 2000 and XP(SP2).

is there anyway to run the game without installing any new 'old' graphic cards?

Hello TSG! It's been a long time since I found another problem which I can not fix by me self. But now, I have found one that is driving me mad! So I bought the game PURE from gamestop, and installed it on my windows 7 machine. My computer passes beyond the Recommended requirements, so there shouldn't be any problem with that. Anyway, it first took quite a while to install, I'd say about 5-7 minutes installing, and once it was done, I couldn't wait to play because I LOVED the demo. So I boot the game up and it takes like 20-30 secs to load the first loading, and then I get the intro video of the game, then another loading screen with the title, "PURE", written on it. This one takes something about less than 1 minute to load and then it asks me for creating a new sav and all, and once I'm done with that, the game stands on black screen for 1-2 secs then I get the program not responding error. I have downloaded the latest drivers for my graphic card, and have tried the compatibility settings, but none of these seem to work. I also installed the game on my Windows XP partition, but I got the same error. Then after all that, I took the game back to Gamestop and exchanged it for another copy because I thought it was the CD's fault. But no, even after installing it with the new copy, my game keeps crashing after it passes the save screen.
