BSOD errors, xp wont start, reformatted, xp wont install.

Q: BSOD errors, xp wont start, reformatted, xp wont install.

I got a new p4 3 gig with hyperthreading pc. For a while it was working like a charm, on overdrive. But only after a week of use, I started to have problems. While playing very visually demanding games (Battlefield 1942, Medal Of Honor) I would keep gettin those dreaded blue screen of death thingies. I would get one of 3 errors. One said, "IRQL_NOT_EQUAL_TO_OR_LESS_THAN" another said, "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA" although im not quite sure about the NONPAGED part, i know it said non something. And the other one I think I only got once and cant remember exactly what it was, it had something to do with IRQ.

Now on all of them it said it was shutting down my pc to avoid hardware damage. Which it did, I had about 3 seconds to read the screen before my pc shut down. After a while, It got so bad that I would get an error while just browsing the internet with explorer. I tried taking out my vid card and using the on-board video, didnt work. I dont remember if xp stopped starting or not, but I decided I should format my hd to fix the problem. I only have the xp upgrade cd so I had to install win98 first. Win 98 installed fine, except that on the first startup after installation my pc resarted itself and I got the "failed startup, choose an option" thing, I chose normal start up and it worked fine. So then I tried to install xp again. I got to the part where it restarts to install xp from the files copied from cd. During that installtion phase, It said a bunch of files didnt copy right, So I had to choose to skip them. The installation failed, xp will never start. I know my xp cd is good cuz I installed xp on my old system, which I am using right now.

Now throughout all this, I had all the updated drivers and all that crap. I even tried to update bios. One weird thing I noticed while doing that,.. In my motherboard manual, it says it uses "2M" bios. On the site for the bios update, it has a version for 2M and 3M updates, 2M files are 256k, 3M are 384k. So i try to update with the 2M file using qflash. But it says wrong file size, it wants 384k. So i go ahead and use the 3M update instead, and it installs. But XP still wont, only difference is, rather than saying it cant copy files, the installation is inturrupted by a DOS screen saying there is an "Internal Stack Error" or something of the sort.

I am so frustrated at this point, I dont care about being able to play my games. I just want to get xp reinstalled. Is it possible my motherboard or memory is damaged?(yea i tried unplugging the memory and everything and putting back too) The people I bought it from wont replace it until I ask for help, reformat a million times, get professional help, call 911, call a doctor, call a psychic, and use witchcraft to fix it myself. Supposedly this is an isolated case, but I have feeling that even if the make good on their replacement guarantee, I will run into the same problems. Can anyone PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE help me?

Guess I should give more hardware info:

Motherboard: GIGABYTE GA-8IG1000MK (supports HT)
Memory: 256 DDR400 on a single stick.
Processor: Pentium 4 3.0 gigahertz with HT technology
Hard Drive: Western Digital 160 gigabytes 8MB cache 7200 RPM
Sound and Video are on the motherboard.

Im having major issues when trying to start up my Windows Xp PC.
Its only just started and my computer has been running fine before today.
Its extremely hard to explain what has been happening so i took a series of photos of the events that take place during the start up process:

First Screen: Yellow vertical lines appear, colour distorted
Second screen: Weird series of x0i 's appearing all over the screen
Thrid Screen: The Start up option screen printed over the last screen with numerous letters missing
After that the Normall Windows xp start up screen, colour distorted and eventually it feezes at this screen and the computer restarts itself.
Now the weirdest thing is, it did this about 6 times then i left it for 15minutes then came back with the camera to take these pictures and it worked like normall... I scanned my computer no viruses. So i thought it must have been some weird glitch so i started doing my normall thing and about 1 hour later it crashed again, and its doing the same thing again, and thats when i took these pictures.

I have no idea whats causing them and i am really confused that it has worked like normall since it started happening

Could it be my Graphics or video card dying?
Or could it be an error in my hardrive?
Or something else???
Please help, any suggestions would reallllllly be helpfull

Thanks alot, Cheers

So I turn my computer off one day only to find it wont start the next day. I open the case up and see the led is on. I flip the switch on the power supply off then on and quickly press the power button. My computer starts but the following time I shut down the computer it again wont start and now the led is blinking. I've never had any issues like this before, any help would be appreciated.

I don't routinely use many usb devices, only my mouse and keyboard and every now and then my ipod. I figure the issue is likely either the power supply or the motherboard. The ps is almost two years old while the motherboard is only about three months old.
 

A:Computer wont start, power supply wont start, blinking led

It sounds to me like your PSU is the problem, get a hold of another and plug it to your computer and see if that will make it start, if it doesn't it might be BOTH your motherboard and PSU. A bad PSU will burn a motherboard.

Compaq Presario v6000, vista Home Premium

looking at my update history, updates were always successful until 11/15/2007, when a kb941600 update failed (800F0826). from there, occasionally an update will work, but most wont. there are hundreds and hundreds of failed ones listed. currently we have 59 important and 1 optional update that havent installed. one time i tried downloading them and it failed, then the next time id downloaded, installed, rebooted, then said they didnt configure correctly and reverted. I see no obvious trend in which ones work and which dont, and listing them could take forever. i could post screenshots of the list if that would help.
I can see that windows defender updates work
security updates for vista, or net framework, dont tend to, rarely they will...

i went through a bunch of the most recent errors, here they are, each came up on multiple updates

80079A91
80070643
80246007
800F081F - service pack 2 gives this

i tried "microsoft fix it", not the "aggressive" one though
i tried the repair.bet thing on the microsoft site. other than that i have tried turning off my firewall.
we had a google redirect virus not long ago that we ran about a gazillion fixes and antivirus things for, so im thinking its not a virus problem... although i cant rule out that one changed something in 2007.

any ideas? =/

Hello,

Today I noticed that I could not open my start menu with neither the windows button, ctrl + esc, or a click of the mouse. I've also had a problem the last couple of days saving/opening files in one of the programs I used to make music. I tried to go into safe mode to do system restore, but the safe mode didn't boot. It scrolled all the system files on the screen but then just stopped and nothing happened.

So, I tried the other option (forget what it's called) that lets you perform various other system restoration tasks. I brought up the system restore screen from there, but got an error that said something about corrupt files so it could not perform the restore. I checked again, and all my restore points had been deleted.

Lastly, when I click computer, all the drives are blank with no names beside them, only the icons. I can still click them and they seem to be functioning normally, so I don't know if there is a relation to this. I don't know if some registry files were deleted or if there is some other problem. I didn't notice the start menu/safe mode/blank icon issues until I just recently installed the latest windows update.

Sorry if this seemed a little long winded, but I would appreciate help from anyone.

Thanks,

It got to the stage where it needs to restart so it done that started the configarations and once it reached 100% it restarted.

Since then what happens is when i press power on the samsung logo comes on the screen then the black screen with the windows picture then the bsod comes up for around half a second and it restarts. then it constantly does this.

The whole cycle only takes a few seconds.

Ive tried booting in safe mode but this isnt working so I downloaded kav rescue on another computer and saved it on a flash drive, But it wont boot off this either.

A:PC Wont start after install new HD

Hello mate now if the drive is making a loud noise then I would hazard a guess at it being faulty I would contact whoever you got it from a for a replacement.

In reality the noise it does make should only be just discernible and tta that a slight whirring sound and maybe some odd ticking clicking noises.

Have you tried touching the device while it is making the noise?? it too should only be very faint vibrations and clicking sensations.

Hi, when we start the computer up it acts like its going to start up normally but then theres the BSOD for a split second and then it tries to start up again and same thing happens again and again until I hit escape. Then it brings up a black page with options that say "Launch Startup Repair" and "Start Windows Normally". When I hit start windows normally it goes into the BSOD loop. The Launch startup repair has a recovery screen that comes up but there was never a backup restore point so it cant go back to anything, and the other options end up not working. Im not sure how to fix this. My other computers have Windows 7 but it came installed on them so I dont have a disk or anything for it.

A:BSOD and wont start up

 I take it you don't have a system backup to an external hard drive that you could restore from.  That being the case, go to another Windows 7 system and make a repair disc, boot from it and try the repair.  To make the repair disc, find a 32 or 64 bit Windows 7 the same as yours, then click Start -> Control Panel -> Backup and Restore -> Create a system repair disc.  Insert a blank CD-R and it will make it.  Take it to your computer, boot from it, and do the repair.  Hopefully that will fix the problem.  If it doesn't, you'll need to boot from a live CD (Like Ubuntu Linux), save any data you don't want to lose, then restore to factory settings.
 
Good luck.

A:Windows 7 wont start up, wont restore

Do you notice if the screen flashes a quick blue before it restarts?If it does, go back to the Safe Mode menu and select instead Disable automatic restart on system failure. The computer will try then to boot normally. If booting should fail and 'bluescreen', the PC will display it instead of rebooting. If possible, take a picture of it and insert it into your next reply. Otherwise, type in what it says.

Hi, I also just downloaded service Pack 2, and now my system won't start up. It tries to boot, but fails.

Now here's the catch: A few months ago my old PC crashed and I had a tech put my old hard c: drive into my new PC, so that my old files (still on XP OS) would be saved, but the new PC had a Vista OS and would run on my F:drive.

So I think what's happening is that somehow the service pack 1 update has somehow changed my c:drive (the hard drive from the old PC) to my default drive, when actually it should be reading the F:drive.

How can I verify this and how do I change this back??

Please help.

My problem is outlined in these two threads and stated better then I can; they also show the same errors im getting with some pictures at these two links .Yet they don't offer a working solution to my problem.

1 Enable Windows 10 firewall to install fonts - 404 Tech Support

2. Unable to install fonts on Windows 10 - Super User
Windows Fire Wall will not Start. Fonts Will Not install. These issues are supposedly related.
I suspect a hacker , after I used some questionable software.; that is what I believe caused this. But I am unsure.

All I know is I have to get this issue resolved so I can install my fonts and get back to work. I'm losing money because clients want me to design for them, and I can't without getting these fonts installed.

A:Windows Firewall wont start. Fonts will not install

You don't say if you tried any steps to fix it but the 1st thing I would do is right click Start choose Run and type services.msc, scroll down to Windows Firewall and set to auto or at least manual if you're running a 3rd party firewall and if not then set the start to auto as you should leave it running anyway. If the tab where you change it's statues is greyed out go back to Run enter "regedit" (without the quotes) and go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\MpsSvc and make sure the Start DWORD value in the right pane is set to 2 then restart your computer. Since you mentioned questionable software you should also run a scan with Malwarebytes and I would also consider something like the E-Set online scanner or similar before anything else

Then it will go straight to the American Trends page i explained earlier and wont go further

Then if you switch power off again and see what happens, it may not even power up next time, no blue lit on, a split second of fan noise then nada. Or it may have nothing happen except you can hear the fan running and the dvd drive can open

Of course she cant find her vista disc!!! We will find it 2moro somewhere though. There is no important data on the pc so if it was possible to reinstall vista I would just leave it in to get fixed. I got quoted 25 pounds.

Hello everyone. first off, thanks for taking the time to consider my problem.

i know this is quite a redundant issue, thank you for your patience.

First off this is a newly built computer, all fresh components. after cleaning/activating the hdd via shift +f10 at win7 setup,(which took me a day to figure out) i was very excited to see my hdd available for win7 installation. as i proceed windows does its thing, after installing its time for the first restart. it restarts right back to the initial windows 7 setup. ive done a lot of research, and majority of the problems seem to be the boot priority in bios. so i made sure that it was usb-hdd, then hard drive. (win7 on flash drive for me, no dvd burner available). still the same thing, right back to initial setup. i tried maybe to remove the flash drive during the 10 second countdown to restart, but when it restarts, the windows splash screen comes up and then blue screens and restarts real quick. cant see what the error is on bsod,

there have been a couple different start up issues, "windows did not start properly" "select version of windows to start from" (or something to that effect.) but its all the same outcome. windows 7 just wont finish installation.

i know this flash drive works cuz i used it to upgrade on my gf's laptop. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

thanks.

A:windows 7 wont complete install. restarts install or bsod

Did you wipe the HD with Diskpart Clean Command?

Check for newer BIOS version. If none, Reset BIOS to defaults, set SATA controller to AHCI.

Set HD first to boot in BIOS setup, trigger stick to boot using one-time BIOS boot menu key at boot.

Where did you get Win7? How is it written to stick?

I've just seen your other Thread where Route was helping you and you mentioned you had your Thread removed the Mods may have removed because technically you shouldn't post a Thread Twice because it can confuse matters, I will post on your Other Thread to indicate the Helping has now moved here in a more suited Forum. I don't know if the Mods will agree with this so we will see.

Ok your Problem now, your Description seems to indicate that the HDD maybe faulting, And it seems you can't even Access the OS. We'll try to get you access back to the OS first.

Laptop's have a Recovery Console they don't get OS Disks and if they do it is very Rare, to access the Recovery Console you need to turn the system on and press F10 repeatedly until you get into the Recovery Console, now at this point My Knowledge goes on the Subject because I have never needed to use the Recovery Console and so don't know what happens after that. The only thing I know is that the Recovery Console is stored as i386 I think.

Here is a Link on the Microsoft Website that may help you using the Recovery Console - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314058

Post back after you have done this and we will see if you have got back into the OS

ooooooooooook....
where do i start.....
I don't know if this is a virus or hardware/software issues or what, but when i start up my computer, it works for a varied length of time, before i get a BSoD(i will post the error when i get the comp to turn on).
When i try to restart, it will either freeze at a random point or i will get a message saying to insert proper boot disk and restart the computer. This continues to happen unless i wait about half an hour before turning it on. but of course when it boots up, the cycle continues. I'll post a dxdiag and error messages/ screenshots when i get it to turn on again

The data collection app didn't finish running. Please re-run it again and let it run for at least 15 minutes (or until the app itself says that it's done). Then zip it up and attach it to your next post.

Most of the memory dumps are related to video errors. As you've updated your video drivers, I'd have to wonder if this is a hardware/overheating problem.

Try these free hardware diagnostics (start with the video tests): Hardware Diagnostics

Removed the new card and server boots fine. I actually had two idenitical cards, one for another server and both cards produced the same fault. The card is a Kingston "KTH-PL316ES/4g" - the kingston website suggests it is compatible with the DL180 G6. I installed them to the second white slot nearest the processor (first white slot already occupied) Any ideas?

Yesturday my vista was working great, and on the screen as i went to shut it down said "updating files do not shut down computer 3/3 100%" but it stayed like that for 4 hours, so i turn it off manualy once i turned it back on the next day it asked me for my password i put it in and as it was loading it was vey slow and would take 5-6 minutes for programs to load up.

Also when i go to click on like my internet it dont work, not even my games work, they try to load then freeze. So i did a scan on it and its still having this problem. After i got frustrated i went to shut it down again and it says "logging off" but stays like that for hours, so i have to manualy turn it off. Now with internet issue, it works in safe mode with connection, but not in my normal screen. WHY IS THIS DOING THIS?

As the title says, I cant start windows because it just blue screens for everything.

-safemode
-startup repair
-reinstalling windows 7
-etc

The main errors I've gotten are the ones in the title.
There are some others but the computer restarts before I can read them.

This all started when I woke up yesterday morning and my laptop was off when I turned it on I got the BSOD error SYSTEM_SERVICE_EXCEPTION and since then its just been crashing.

Oh and its an ASUS G73JW in case it matters.

EDIT: 0x0000003B aswell, sometimes it sticks on the starting windows screen, not frozen though, the logo still 'breathes'.
SOLVED
I Removed all my RAM except for 2 sticks (1 of which I couldn't remove without disassembling my laptop) and everything works fine now.

A:Windows wont start in any way. BSOD 0x0000007E and acpi.sys

Sounds like you have hard disk errors. Use Advanced Boot Options to select Repair Your Computer and get to the System Recovery Options. Then select the command prompt. Do the following:chkdsk /r c:
chkdsk /r d:
chkdsk /r e:
chkdsk /r f:.etc until you get the message that the volume could not be opened for direct access. For any drives that do not give the message:
"Windows has checked the file system and found no problems"
run chkdsk again as above. In other words, if it says:
"Windows has made corrections to the file system"
after running the disk check, run the disk check again.

I realize you may only have one disk show up in Windows explorer, but you may have more than one disk through recovery options. This is because the system creates a hidden boot partition (which will be C: in recovery), you may have a recovery partition for your PC that is hidden (which will be D: in recovery), and you will have your primary Windows partition (which may be E: in recovery). A custom PC will likely have at least C: and D: to scan.
