Q: 3 days in a row my system has crashed

Hello,

Three days in a row I have received a blue screen of death which dumps to memory and then the system reboots and comes up and works fine.

How do I find out what is causing the problem? Please any help would be great!

Preferred Solution: 3 days in a row my system has 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: 3 days in a row my system has crashed

Sounds like bad hardware to me, memory? You aren't overclocking are you?

Did you run any stress testing like Prime95. Anytime I change my hardware, I run Prime95 overnight to make sure ram/CPU settings are stable.

Wellit only took 2 days. Windows vista ultimate 32 bit crashed, bluescreens now and won't start up except in safe mode. safe mode with networking wont work either, so now im on my laptop. i tried restoring and it didn't work. am i screwed? what should i do?

A:computer crashed after only 2 days of vista, please help

Since its only 2 days old I am sure you don't have much to lose.

Find the disk that came in the box and reinstall Vista. After doing that get it updated right away and you should be back to normal 100%.

Est time: 1.5 hours.

A few days ago, my computer was working fine, I had no problems.
But yesterday, I tried to boot up, and as usual, took me to the login screen. I log in and everything is horrible. the mouse is lagging and jerks around, the bar with the start button doesn't respond, and initially everything was just extremely slow. I tried to open my antivirus to run a scan to try to find a problem, but everytime I click on something the computer freezes and doesn't register that I tried to open a program. So I restarted the computer and tried to wait a bit to let it catch up before I try to do anything but after a few seconds it just bluescreens. I've tried going into the boot settings and using the last good configuratoin, but that didn't help. The only thing I can think of to do is completely reinstall Windows and I'd rather not do that. I guess it wouldn't be too horrible as everything that I can think of that I really care about keeping is also saved to cloud storage, but I would still rather not have to reinstall everything I have as well.

Has anyone else had similar problems and can I fix it without completely reinstalling Windows?

A:Computer was working fine 3 days ago now keeps crashed on startup

Welcome to the forums!

Did you boot into safe mode to run antivirus there? Are you seeing the bad behavior in safe mode also? Hopefully not.
Alternatively, boot to your repair disc (CD). You have one, right?
Finally, do you have access to another computer you can use? You could pull the drive on the 1st computer and repair the software on the second computer (accessing the drive as as an external device).

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

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?

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.

New system assembled a couple weeks ago.

After running benchmarking software to test for hardware/software errors begin installing
and application (League of Legends client software) and BSOD at 99% of install. No other software had been installed on machine not proprietary to my copy of Windows 7.

Reboot OS and install of application no problem.

Several days later, BSOD during loading of LoL client.

This morning, BSOD streaming video on YouTube, then again 5 hours later during scheduled AVG virus scan.

AVG was not installed on the system at the time of the first two BSOD, and several other AVG scans have run daily without BSOD.

Attached is RAR archive of these 4 BSOD events.

Using Windows XP for 5 years and only seen 2 BSOD's

A:New system, 4 BSOD in 7 days.

2 of the 4 memory dumps blame networking drivers. As such I'd suggest replacing your networking drivers (both wired and wireless - if so equipped).

If that doesn't fix it, then I'd suggest removing AVG, then using this free removal tool to clean up the remnants: AVG Antivirus and Security Software - Tools download
Then IMMEDIATELY download a fresh copy of AVG, reinstall it and update it.
Then check to see if that fixes the BSOD's.

I was getting the BSOD for a few days. I called Compaq and paid $60.00 for them to help me. They walked me through the System Restore Process (which I already knew how to do) it did seem to fix the problem. However the next day (yesterday) I came in and turned the laptop on, and got the screen you should see above. Of course I called Compaq support again and wouldnt you know it they wanted another $60.00 well anyways here I am. I have found that I needed a Windows Installation Disc which I do have (I have another laptop exactly like the one messed up) I inserted the disc and went into the CD Rom startup and the disc ran etc. However it is not fixing nothing it restarts but keeps going to the same page you see above. Please help.

Are you sure they did System Restore and not Factory Recovery? There is a big difference.

Here is How to Boot A Computer from CD or DVD - YouTube . While in BIOS setup, check that the HD is detected under Storage Devices. Then either set the HD first to boot and use the F key given on first screen to trigger the DVD or set the DVD drive first to boot followed by HD in BIOS setup.

The Compaq factory preinstalled Win7 is a badly corrupted install by all of the bloatware they lard on it. I would strongly consider since you'll have the DVD getting the superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 .

I have tried to perform a system restore to a time before 11 Nov, but even though the on screen message says "You have successfully restored your system to 5 Nov etc" it has only restored back to the 11th as microsoft security essentials says it was updated 3 days ago and in the system restore history there is no record of any system restore before the 11th. The reason for performing a system restore, was that on startup I noticed that CPU usage in task manager was occasionly showing 0% which I thought rather odd as it dosn't normally go below 1% and thought that a system restore would rectify this. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this , they would be most appreciated.

A:Will System Restore go back 20 days?

Hi. . .

What exactly do you mean by "create a point 20 days back"?

When a restore point is created, it is done so at that exact moment in time; hence one created right now would be 10 Feb 2008 0023 hours EST.

Please clarify.

Please forgive me if I am posting in the wrong location. I am familiar with forums, but an inexperienced user.

On Feb 18 I turned on my laptop and received the black boot up screen with the options for safemode, networking, or normal. When I attempted to boot it brought me directly to the screen stating I needed to preform a system recovery or diagnostic. I have been in IT for a while and have never had issues working with system restore before. Laptops, however, are new to me. As is Windows 7.

I preformed the system diagnostic and it led me to do a system restore. I did this to the point I knew my computer was fine, before installing itunes. (I hate apple and everything about them). My computer rebooted and everything was fine. It popped up with the regular window: Your computer has successfully been restored to Feb 17. I ran some maintenance and preformed my virus scans. Nothing appeared to be wrong. It ran fine all day and that evening. I shut down my laptop before bed and everything went smoothly.

The next morning: Feb 19. I booted my computer up. It started just fine and went to windows. When the desktop screen appeared there was a command window and a popup in the background. It took about 120 seconds for the command window to disappear and the desktop to come up. The pop up stated Your computer has successfully been restored to Feb 17.

A:Startup days after System Restore

Do you know if it is in fact being re-restored to Feb 17 on every boot---or is the message not true?

What entries do you show in the startup tab of msconfig?

Do you have any tasks scheduled?

I really have no idea what is going on and have never heard of this. The above are just some things that come to mind.

Have you considered a restore to Feb 16 or earlier, just to see if maybe you then get a message about "your computer has been restored to Feb 16"?

- 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

I was trying to free up some space and accidentally deleted tons of system files and a bunch of necessary things I have no idea what to do or which system files I deleted. I tried starting it up and it came up with a screen saying Power Saving Mode and then switched to a screen coming up with: SYNTAX in the middle and on the bottom it said: Press TAB to enter post.... and Press DEL to enter setup. I tried the rescue disk but it wouldn't load the CD Drive. Then I went into the BIOS and changed it so it would boot the CD drive first. Nothing happened.

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.

And although I have attempted the repair several times already, for some reason it says number if repair attempted:1

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!

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.

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.

It returned an error message for an Image that was over 30 days old, whereas an Image that was restored within 30 days of making it did not. Can anyone definitively shed some light on this? Do I have to create a new System Image each 30 days to remain protected due to Microsoft activation requirements?

Dear SF Users

First of all I hope that this is in the right place and that you can help me.

I recently(4 days ago) build a new PC, consisting of the following pars:
CPU: AMD Processors for Desktops: AMD Phenom?, AMD Athlon? FX, AMD Athlon? X2 Dual-Core, AMD Athlon?, and AMD Sempron? Processor
MOBO: GA-770TA-UD3 (rev. 1.0) - GIGABYTE
MOBO COOLER: Hyper 212 Plus - Cooler Master
GPU: Product section
PSU: Real Power M520 - Cooler Master
RAM: GeIL GV34GB1333C9DC prijzen | Core | Tweakers.net Pricewatch
Case: CM 690 II Advanced - Cooler Master
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64Bit OEM

The first problem encountered was that my mobo had bios version F2 which did not support my CPU. So when I found out after 6 hours I updated the BIOS to F3, and it worked.
I installed windows 7 and the drivers on cd from my mobo and GPU. And updated them all.

Havning encountered a few crashes here and there(bsods) during various installations and during the prosess of copying files I was supprised, but not worried.

When I started to play(Starcraft 2, which was set on Ultra) It worked fine, the first time. After that I kept encountering BSODs. So after reading a lot and using WinDBG I tried to deinstall my ATI drivers.
Which seemed to work. But then again I started to encounter "other" BSODs, during more random stuff, listing to music, trying to open a file, playing AC2.

Hi,

Previously had a BSOD two days ago discussed here http://www.sevenforums.com/crashes-d...requested.html which seemed to be related to Acronis.

Haven't uninstalled Acronis yet but got another this morning - System Service Exception. Any information very much appreciated.

Thanks.

A:Second BSOD in two days: SYSTEM SERVICE EXCEPTION

The bugcheck was 0x3b (0xc0000005,,,) = system service exception
--> exception = 0xc0000005 = memory access violation

The NT Kernel listed as probable cause, which is impossible. NT got the blame because of a call to a 3rd party driver, most liklely the first one listed below. These must be updated -

Code:
BASFND.sys Thu Apr 24 19:17:12 2003 (3EA87078) - Cisco or Broadcom network driver
tifsfilt.sys Wed Aug 29 08:37:29 2007 (46D56889) - Acronis TrueInage
UltraMonUtility.sys Thu Nov 13 20:10:30 2008 (491CD006) - Utlramon mirror driver - possibly Roxio..?
I also see you have Symantec/ Norton installed. It most likely is involved in this crash as well. I suggest that you remove NIS, N360 or other Symantec/ Norton product otherwise you'll be back for additional BSOD help.

Use the Norton Removal Tool.
Download the Norton Removal Tool (NRT); save to desktop. Then go to desktop, RIGHT-click on the NRT icon and select Run as Administrator. When complete - re-boot.

NRT - ftp://ftp.symantec.com/public/englis...moval_Tool.exe

Reset the Windows Firewall to its default settings -
START | type FirewallSettings.exe into the start search box | click on FirewallSettings.exe above | select the Advanced Tab | click on "Restore Defaults" | Click Apply, OK

I would recommend MS Security Essentials --> http://www.microsoft.com/Security_Essentials/

Acronis is your call of course. I can only tell you that it too has caused its fair share of BSODs.

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.

rebooted again with different BIOS setting and it goes through post , lists USB devices , PCI devices , IRQ settings and then stops after the last line where it says ACPI controller.

i went back in to BIOS and checked all boot priority settings , i tried to reinstall the operating system , but it goes through the windows installation dialogue , then stalls at the point where it says " Setup is starting wondows " and just hangs

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.

I put another HD in from an older computer with Win XP and it booted so I assume it's not related to the MB or CPU but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do next. If I can't boot in Safe Mode and if I can't reinstall Win XP64... I am out of ideas.

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?
Not really sure what other info to supply you with, haven't opened either system to see if there is an empty slot to hook up to.
