Blue-screened error @ startup: D: volume service Fat32

Q: Blue-screened error @ startup: D: volume service Fat32

Window XP Professional: when starting, interupted by blue screen with error message Fat 32 D:volume (something) 1DOB-3241 verifying files and service and then system checks out OK and starts. Since loading Windows Live and Live security have had very slow response until all of it is loaded (sometimes up to 45 minutes before I can get on Internet Explorer).
I think my D drive is too full--cannot complete defrag since there is only 9% free space on disk. C drive is nearly empty. I think I have to move some of these files to C but I don't know how. Does anyone know if these problems are connected to error message at start-up or are they separate issues? Had broadband service check over weekend and they said its not their problem. I'm not too techy but fast learner if someone has patience to help....Thanks.

Preferred Solution: Blue-screened error @ startup: D: volume service Fat32

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: Blue-screened error @ startup: D: volume service Fat32

To move the files right click on them and select "copy", then make a folder on your C drive and in that folder right click "paste"

Once the files have been moved, you can go back to the D drive and delete them. Don't delete all of the files on D, just the ones you put there.

You should not store any of your files on the D drive, this is most likely a restore partition and should not be used by you.

No it will not mess up your Pro version . . the repair will not run.

Unmountable boot volume will usually indicate a hard drive failure . . Does BIOS redognize the drive?

I am trying to sell my Dell XPS L401X (XPS 14) that I bought in December of 2010 but I have encountered a serious problem with it. I loaded the computer from factory settings as it had blue screen and refused to start up without startup repair and dell datasafe backup or w/e that program is called. I loaded it up, installed Google Chrome, cleared my history on IE, downloaded MSE, the latest nvidia drivers and java 7 64 and deleted all those and emptied the recycle bin once done installing those. I shut down the computer to install updates and get a blue screen as soon as it passes the startup screen. Every time I attempt to launch using startup repair it just opens up another window with a black screen and the option of startup repair and normal repair, never actually going to startup repair, just continually refreshing every time I select startup repair. Please help I need a permanent fix ASAP as I don't want my buyer to experience these issues and send it back.

A:Windows 7 on Dell XPS L401X Blue Screened, Startup Repair not loading

Proceed through the steps in Troubleshooting Windows 7 Failure to Boot and see if that resolves the problem.

You may also consider Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7 since the system is no longer under warranty anyway. Just make sure you can read the key on the sticker prior to doing those steps.

A:Blue Screened

Hi, some reasons for Blue Screens
New hardware - software installed.
Device driver - Video driver - corrupted - faulty.
Faulty Ram - Overheating - Dying hard drive etc.
======
Let us have some Pc specifications.
Check and post
TSG System Information Utility - found here.
http://static.techguy.org/download/SysInfo.exe
======
Post the Minidump files
Create a new folder on the desktop and call it dumpfiles [or something similar]

Look in c:\windows\minidump
Copy the last 4 minidump files to that folder.
Close the folder and right click on it and select Send To Compressed [zipped] Folder.
Windows will compress the file and then save the new zipped file in the same location.

Use the 'Manage attachments' in the 'Go Advanced' reply window below to upload that zip file here as an attachment.

Hi,

I'm new to this but I figured I'd give this a try. This is a repost of my earlier post I did last week. no replies .

I have an Acer Aspire 5110 laptop and recently I've been getting the bluescreen when starting the laptop. Sometimes it pops up after I login, sometimes on the password screen. The bluescreen usually has HSFHWAZL.SYS (i think). After this, windows usually does a disk check. Sometimes it finds nothing, other times it truncates like 15-20 files.

Currently I'm running WindowsXP Media Center Edition.

I downloaded HijackThis and here's the log file.

If I'm missing anything, please let me know. Thanks!

Issue is Blue screen "A driver has overrun a stack-based buffer". Its on my teen son's PC (need I say more). System has been down for months got tierd of working on it till now. The begining:
1) System starts and said it had two spywares running at same time. After 4 mins the system would freeze, not giveing much time to do anything
2) I started in safe mode and removed my Nortons since I could not this "other" spyware. After a reboot windows said it removed a few malice files. Forgot the the files for this "other" spyware" but it had a tool bar on IE and ended with (4.1?)
3) System worked fine. However as I tried to install a new antivirus I found that neither of my CD/ DVD drives would work (device manger, would not let me update driver). I even moved the drives to the other IDE controller but got the same thing. After two days I found someone who gave me step by step insrtuctions to remove two reg files. Got the drives to work.
4) Now I have this blue screen message. I have removed one by one each hardware item and I still get the problem.

About 2 months ago I bought a Hp G70-460US Laptop that I've been running Vista Home Premium on and it was working perfectly until earlier today when I started to get random blue screens of death. At first I thought it was just a random crash from running too many programs, but it started to blue screen ever more frequently. Earlier I restored it back to 2 weeks prior but I was unable to run programs efficiently and it still blue screened, so I backed-up all that was important onto an Ipod and did a complete system restore to the factory settings, which took about an hour, and at which point it blue screened at startup before even getting to the administrator log-in screen. I've now attempted to boot it into safe mode, however it no longer even recognized that windows is even installed and asks for it to be, and when booted regularly, it just shows a black screen. I'm fairly certain it may be a driver issue, however seeing as I can no longer boot the computer to get the blue screen, it's difficult to check what the problem actually is now. I've never had this problem before and I'm not much of a computer wiz, so I'm not sure what I should be doing to fix it. Does anyone have prior knowledge or possibly some insight on how to fix this problem? It would be greatly appreciated. I haven't given much information other than the problem itself, so if some is needed, just let me know. Also I'm new to this forum, so if this thread is in the wrong place, I apologize.

A:Vista Blue Screened

Hello Werty789,
Welcome to Vista Forums!

I think that there was a little glitch that turned big (sounds weird i know).
But since you backed up all of your files thats super. I would suggest you do a clean installation of your version of vista. This way, you can have a fresh start and hopefully your BSOD will be gone. Also, make sure you allow windows to update itself after installation so it downloads and installs all the proper updates.

Let us know how it goes,
Ben

I've been getting the blue screen of death several times a week, if not several times a day, for several months now. It almost always comes when I am surfing the internet, especially--but not particularly--when I'm accessing video sites such as Hulu or MSN Video, although I don't even need to be playing something in such sites--if the window's even up, it will likely give a blue screen somewhere in the next hour. Lately, though, just running a browser can cause it to blues creen.

My blue screen says at the top something to the effect of: driver-not-less-or-equal; I've never been fast enough to catch the specific numbers, but I can try if they're needed.

I've tested this in the latest versions of: IE, FF, Opera, Flock, and Safari and all equally cause a blue screen crash.

I have an Acer E380 8 month old system with:
Vista SP1
AM2 Socket MB (I believe, and don't know the exact model)
Athlon 64 X2 4400+ @ 2.31 GHz

Realtek High Definition audio
2GB DDR2 RAM
320 GB Western Digital HD
Came with 250W PSU (I put in a 750W PSU to try some upgrades with the new graphics card, but somehow that combination gave more blue screens so I took both of them out)
I have about 6 USBs hooked up drawing various amounts of power and I use a Wacom tablet as my main mouse/input, but the problem started way before that...so don't know if that means anything.

A:I'm getting blue-screened to death

Hi dgal. . .

Welcome... to your first thread in the TSF Vista Support Forum.

I see that you have been a member since last November, but this is your first thread and post. Sorry it had to be under a BSOD watch. Let's see if we can locate the cause.

I need some items and I have a few things for you as well. There is a zip file attached to this post containing a batch file named minidump-msinfo32.bat. Please download it and extract it to your desktop. Right-click on the desktop batch file icon and select Run as Administrator. The black "DOS" command screen will appear and scroll followed by the smaller Vista screen while msinfo32 runs. Give it a few minutes, then go to your documents folder where there should be a new folder named TSF_08-21-08 containing the dump files (with names similar to Mini082008-01.dmp), a text file and the msinfo32 NFO file. Zip the entire folder up and attach to your next post.

In the interim, please check WERCON - Windows Problem Reports and Solutions as it usually does contain information on the system crashes that may prove to be helpful.
START | type wercon.exe into the start search box | right-click on wercon.exe under programs above | run as admin | view Problems to Check & Problem History.

Also check the Device Manager for any red/yellow flags.
START | type dev man into the start search box | right-click on Device Manager up top under programs | run as admin

Hi, recently installed a new cpu motherboard and graphics card. Reinstalled windows, and now the machine is crashing occasionally. It crashes anywhere between instant on start up or 40 minutes into browsing. I uploaded the zip file per your BSOD posting instructions.

I've done a little researching on my own and I think it may have to do with the Realtek audio controller conflicting with my nvidia graphics card in some way. Although since the computer is blue screening I'm hoping your diagnoses might help me figure out if that is actually the problem.

For the second time in the last few months We've had a partial network outage that was traced to a blue screened machine. This time, the BSOD referenced storport.sys.  The issue being caused is that the switch gets flooded with unknown traffic and that
goes as far as the uplinked switch that gets taken down.
I can't find anything that stands out in a wireshark trace, but as soon as that machine is unplugged, everything is fixed.  What could possibly be causing this and how can it be prevented?

I have Windows 7 Ultimate installed on my computer and had it up to date on all of the Windows updates. I also have Windows Vista installed on another drive on the computer.
I was using it earlier and it suddenly blue screened at random. I was just browsing Reddit or something when it happened.
Once it blue screened I couldn't get it to work again. The error code it gave me was 0x000000e for both my Windows 7 install and Vista install (both were working fine before this blue screen).
I got on my laptop and downloaded the system repair and put it on a disc. I ran it on my desktop (the computer having issues) and it repaired the boot issues. However, on the Windows 7 install I can get to the login screen and log in now, but it will spend about a minute or two sitting at the 'Preparing your desktop' message before coming up with a screen with nothing but a teal background and in the bottom right it says this:

Windows 7
Build 7600
This copy of Windows is not genuine

It is a legitimate copy and has worked fine for a year before this happened. The background looks like this minus the taskbar and icons: http://www.guidebookgallery.org/pics...win2000pro.png

The Vista install seems to work fine now though. However, I cannot access the drive that has Windows 7 installed on it from Vista anymore. If I try opening it, it will say 'Access Denied'.
Also, the drive letter for Windows 7 changed after running the repair. It was originally drive letter G but it has been changed to F.

Hello everyone I'm new to the board and I apologize for not having the time to read through all of the beginning tutorials and scanning to see if this has already been addressed on the site. I've learned more about computers in the last eight hours then I could ever imagine. I have a Lenovo T420 running Windows 7 enterprise service pack two. My computer won't boot up in windows regular mode or safemode. I believe I deleted a registry file and that blue screened my computer. My computer has windows bit locker Drive encryption in which I am an administrator and have the key. I have until tomorrow to get my expense reports submitted for the last three weeks so that I can get reimbursed and my computer picked a doozy of a time to get a virus. Specifically the Mal/Iframe-AH that I thought was quarantined. I believe it is this virus that has: Redirected Google, mirrored other websites, taken over all Internet downloads from Firefox and Internet Explorer, told me Skitch needed an update, and I downloaded a SCARY version of Skitch, and fakes the virus protection scan when I ran it. I went into the registry and deleted a file that basically blue screened my computer. I'm at a point now where I can get to the command prompt however I believe the startup repair from bitlocker is overriding my boot up disk.

I was using my computer as usual and after I came back after eating, I saw a completely black screen. I turned my computer off and as it booted back up it blue screened, telling me there was a problem with memory management.
I turned it back off and fully depowered my motherboard, popped my ram in and out, just in case.
I turned it back on and nothing showed up on my monitor. My mouse and keyboard lit up and I got the regular system beeps. I plugged my HDMI cable into my motherboard with the same results. The cable works and the port on my monitor works as well.

Hey, I tried method two to format in fat32, but I get: virtual disk service error: the volume size is too big. I need 127GB of space for my PS3 that needs FAT32. I tried to partition in 32GB clips(4) but the PS3 only reads the first 32GB partition(PS3 has, for now, 100 GB of data saved) I am going nuts trying to back up. Using windows 7. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

A:Virtual disk service error: the volume size is too big

I've never heard of virtual disk service giving messages about a partition being too big. There are limits for FAT32 partitions (8 terabytes by the way) but in FAT32 format there are file size limits, e.g. Programs Files can't be over 4gb (not in your case). Have you tried any other different methods of formatting the drive as FAT32?

Some time ago I installed WinCleaner on my pc (which I had been successfully using for the previous decade on various machines) and obviously managed to damage/delete some key registry entries, as when I try to access various functions as an administrator (most notably trying to open Services) I get a message:

C:\Windows\system32\services.msc
Windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.

I've also lost the option to change start menu/control panel etc to Classic View - the option just isn't there any more.

So I tried to do a System Restore but there are no restore points and when I try to create one I get another message:

The restore point could not be created for the following reason:
A Volume Shadow Copy Service component encountered an unexpected error. Check the Application event log for more information. (0x80042302)

I assume the problem is all connected but have no idea what to try, short of doing a "reset to factory settings" which I'm loathe to do in case anything goes wrong - if it will even work!

Any ideas for the fairly non-technical?

A:Volume Shadow Service component error 0x80042302

Welcome
All that we can do is give our best guess of the cause. I think that in your case your cleaner has made detrimental changes to the registry and it has to be restored. I would go back to before the problem with a system restore. After its fixed, I would no longer the cleaner that has caused the problem in Seven. The fact that it worked in the past has no bearing on the present.
If you are having a problem with System restore try in safe mode. If you do try in safe mode there is no option to return to where you started from.

Firstly, apologies if this is in the wrong section - noob in this forum

System: Win 7 Ultimate x64 on an HP Pavilion DV6. My account is the only proper user account on the laptop and is an admin account.

In short, when trying to do a system restore, it come up with an error that the Volume Shadow Copy Service was not working, though that error code is irrelevant for the purposes of this question as I later managed to run system restore in safe mode from an age old restore point...

When checking services.msc (run as admin), VSS was off and was on manual. Changed it to automatic and then when I tried clicking start, the following error came up:

Windows could not start the Volume Shadow Copy service on Local Computer.
Error 5: Access is denied.

I have since tried everything I can possibly think of (including setting it back and forth between manual & auto) to get the service to start, to no avail. Solutions tried so far:

- net start vss in elevated cmd - returns the same error (error 5 access is denied)
- vssvc.exe in elevated cmd - same
- changed permissions to full control for myself, admin group and NETWORK SERVICE (which I had to add) for System32 folder and for vssvc.exe but no change

A:Error 5 (access denied) when starting Volume Shadow Copy service (VSS)

Just writing an update to say I managed to solve the problem by turning off my AV completely before starting the service and it worked (I obviously changed it back to manual once it started)!

Annoyingly, I had actually already tried this before by turning off individual components of my AV at a time (eg firewall), but for some reason had overlooked trying to turn the whole thing off...

Out of interest, does anyone have any idea what in the AV (KIS 2015) would be blocking VSS from starting suddenly (I haven't changed any of its settings from before the issue arose)?

Please note that I DON'T need to disable CHKDSK at boot. What I need is to actually remove the Dirty Bit. I have an external drive that is formatted as FAT32 and I want to convert it to NTFS, but every time I run CONVERT I get a message saying that the disk has the Dirty Bit set and cannot be converted. CHKDSK /F does not solve the problem. I don't get any message asking me to run CHKDSK when I boot or connect the disk, which sort of proves that the disk is not actually dirty.

I had to do a clean repartition/reformat of my hard drive about a week and a half ago, including a reinstall Windows XP Pro SP2. The circumstances that led to the reinstall forced me to use FAT32 instead of NTFS, which I have no problem with.

My questions:

1_ What is the maxiumum size of a FAT32 volume?

2_ Would exceeding this safe maxiumum size result in having data/file system corruption down the road?

I have a 300GB Seagate formatted to FAT32 with 32k clusters.

Thanks in advance,

M.

2_ Would exceeding this safe maxiumum size result in having data/file system corruption down the road?

Hello, the presario v2000 laptop running XP Home began having trouble. At first it started saying explorer.exe had to close, and would reboot but that quickly progressed to a blue screen error and would not load at all. I enabled boot logging at noticed it closed at the drivers...(nothing new was installed except apparently some windows updates).

Didnt work:
Safe Mode, Last Know Good..
Recovery Console-Chkdsk /r /p indicated there was an unrecoverable problem.
fixboot didnt work either. (now have NTLDR error)

Did testing on Memory, CPU, HDD. The only thing that raised flags was the Hard Drive accessibility which was very poor *(Hard drive throughput was good).

After doing fixboot, it now cant find NTLDR.

It seems to be like a hard drive failure. But I want to make sure. ANY SUGGESTIONS?

A) Is it clear that the Hard Drive is bad, and I should take it out, make it a slave to recover any data possible, and buy new HDD and reinstall?

B) attempt to re-partition (without data loss), enough to make room for a new xp install, and try to repair that way?

C) ANY SUGGESTIONS?

Please can somebody help me!!!

I keep getting the blue screen error: Unmountable Boot volume 0x000000ED error when I start my Windows XP Pro computer. It happened a day ago when my computer crashed and I stupidly switched the mains power off. I have tried all the options: safe mode/ last known good configuration etc and it all ends up with the Unmountable boot volume error.

I have read previous posts about using the Win XP CD and running the recovery console and running chkdsk /p or chkdsk /r but I can't find my WIN XP CD. I have downloaded the boot diskettes from MS website and tried using them instead, and it does load the files, but when the 6th disk is in, instead of a welcome screen so that I can get into recovery console, another blue screen error appears with the error code 0x0000007B. I really don't know what to do now. Is that another error all together or is it related to the Unmountable boot Volume error?

Any ideas of what i can do next please? If there's really nothing that can be done to fix this, is there anyway I can still backup my files or is that too late? One thing I noticed is that when I type dir/w in DOS prompt, there are only 14 files on there, does that mean I have lost all my files or is it because of this error that I can't acces them?

Sorry about all the questions, any suggestions/help would be greatly appreciated.
