My Comp Keeps Crashing!!! Right when it starts up!!!

Q: My Comp Keeps Crashing!!! Right when it starts up!!!

Please help, my computer crashes randomly, when i say freezing, i mean the screen turns blue and it makes the computer restart, where i have the option of starting windows normally or in safe mode or save mode with networking. I chose safe mode with networking and things have been working ok like this, Its not when i open any specific program, it can happen as soon as my computer starts up or after my comp been working for a while. Also, since this started happening, my internet expolorer doesnt work anymore, it will usually say that internet exploror has stopped working and windows is checking for a solution,which it never finds, and it shuts it down. i have to use google chrome to get on the internet. I dont know anything about computers, i tried to restore it to an earlier date but it wont let me do that and everytime i turn on my computer the normal way (im in safe mode now) an error sign from norton comes up saying 5013,3 is wrong with it and how to fix it, but that didnt work either. Someone please help me, i have no idea how to fix this and this seems like a good website filled with people who know what they are doing. Oh, so everyone knows, i am computer illiterate. Thank you sooo much!!! Amandabanana

Preferred Solution: My Comp Keeps Crashing!!! Right when it starts up!!!

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.)

OK,

Yesterday I decided to take my power supply and heatsink fan out for a cleaning, becuz it was soundin pretty bad. I put everything back together and started it up. literally 2min after i started it ( and it's beginning to start windows ) the comp shuts down without warning... the weird thing is, the comp shuts down (all fans, motherboard, monitor, cd roms, harddrives, everything ) but the blue led power light stays on... i'll hit the switch at the back and it takes maybe 30 sec for the light to turn off... i'm soooo confused... like i cleaned the fans like i normally do... didn't do anything different...

i'm just trying to find out what might be wrong with it... i know there's the chances of it jus being the thermal compound, or the power supply. any other ideas?

how much does that thermal compound run for anyways?

gawd this is so confusing and frustrating, i'm stuck with my lil sis's comp. 256 ram, YUCK...

Help PLZZZZZ

Murda,
 

A:Comp Shuts Down 1 - 5 min After It Starts

Welcome to Techspot!!

So you didnt clean an reapply thermal paste? If not I think this is causing your problem. You're asking how much thermal paste cost? Or how long it will last?

Hello everyone, I would greatly appreciate your help. My uncle needed help reformatting a computer, 1.25ghz amd 256mb geforcefx5200 wd80gig hd 256mb ram. The operating system that was all wacked due to virus/ads needed to be reformatted.

I have been using windows xp for quite some time now and have reformatted many times (note I have never gone from windows 98 to xp though). I did my normal routine, put in the windows xp cd into the drive and rebooted, holding del to enter the mobo bios. I set the boot devices to cdrom first, hd 2nd, floppy 3rd and saved and exited the bios. The computer restarted and began the reformatting process. I deleted the partitions and created two new partitions with the first set to 38000 and the second, the rest of the available space. As I went to install windows xp on the c:, only the format with ntfs or ntfs quick were the options (I use ntfs on my computer). The computer was originally set on fat32. I chose ntfs (not quick method) and the computer began doing its normal thing. It finished reformatting c: and copying the files to the hd.

A:help, comp starts but soon shuts off

First of all, you need to go back into the CMOS settings (what you call the BIOS) and RE-CHECK everything. Make only ONE CHANGE at a time, and document EVERYTHING you do! Then save the settings, and exit the CMOS. Reboot the system and see what happens. Does the computer make any MORE progress or not? Did you make things WORSE or BETTER? This will be a trial-and-error process until you can determine whether or not this is a hardware problem, an OS problem, or something else entirely.

If I had to GUESS, I think you're going to have to let the CMOS re-detect the IDE drive(s). From what you've posted, I think you've made a CHANGE to the SIZE of the C: partition, and the CMOS doesn't know about it yet.

PLEASE remember to post whatever you do to correct this, and if this has been any help to you at all. Without knowing which motherboard you're using, I can only SWAG this answer.

Good luck - HTH

hi there gurus of technology...:-)

i have a really weird thing going on. Each evening i close down my computer, go to work and in the evening when i come back, the comp is running! It turns on by itself as I live alone there could be noone else turning it on. Is this a new virus?

Besides this, already for a long time when I open My computer and get the windows folder view, if i do anything inside this windows view I get an error message and the whole screen reboots. I have to select folder view and then I can browse through my folders without error messages. The third thing is that I have this message constantly popping up from internet security and i can only turn it off when I select symswc.exe and in the windows task manager and end that process.

PLS i need help as I'm afraid something is pretty wrong with my comp!!!!

in a past problem, part of the remedy was to change the startup sequence. now everytime i restart my computer i get a c prompt and must type "win" in order to bring up the desktop. i did this by changing a "0" to a "1" or vice versa. what i cannot remember is where i did this, i will assume in setup, knowing how dangerous assumptions are. any help will be appreciated.

Yeah, this is my second computer build. For some reason, the computer won't start up a BIOS or boot menu. I'm 99% sure that the parts are securely fastened. I'm also 100% sure they're fastened correctly. The computer starts up, the fans run, mobo's LED light turns on, HD runs floppy works, cd-rom works, but all I see is a black screen. The keyboard LED's dont turn on (they always flicker or turn on or something when a computer starts up with it). I'm not completely sure if it's the motherboard that's messed up or something, or if I have something incompatible.

I'm not sure what the heck is going on with my comp, but it's just a black screen when everything's plugged in together and turned on.

A:new comp: starts, but nothing shows up

my guess is its 3 possible things not working (that is if evrything is hooked up correctly) either

1. Motherboard isnt working
2. Ram isnt working
3. Harddrive isnt working

I checked all the parts and they seem compatible. Im guessing that its the motherboard that isnt working. It happened to me also, the led was on on the mobo, but nothing on the screen. My advice is call the company (asus) and tell them whats going on, they will probablly ask you to send yours in, then they will send it back. if you look on newegg, it says its only covered by the manufacture (again thats asus).

To save you some time heres the asus info you need to call:

Sounds like your display settings have been changed. Try right-clicking on your desktop, select properties then the settings tab from the dialog box and change them to something you prefer.

My laptop comp always froze everytime the cpu cooling fan starts making noises. I think the problem is related to an program/appliocation or server that catched a virus through it. I had the laptop fixed once from the shop and the problem still exist with continuing usage of the same applications/programs. Can somebody help me check and get rid of the virus or at least prevent the comp from freezing again?

It more annoying than a problem.

Im running my acer aspire x3200 through a sony HD TV with a HDMI cable.

now when ever I update my realtek it disables the HDMI cable and assumes im using speakers so i had to disable the realtek high def audio speakers setting (as it wasnt plugged in)

now when ever I turn on the comp it thinks no audio is plugged in so I have to always click on the device advanced settings within realtek manager and make it search for it. of course it picks it up but its annoying now.

any suggestions on how to set it once and for all on my HDMI cable?

Hi all, I'm experiencing a strange problem with my new P50: pressing f8 crashes the laptop, after which it doesn't boot up again; I have to remove the power cable and reinsert it. But this only lets me load windows for about five seconds, after which the same happens again. Startup repair does nothing to help; trying to restore windows to a previous point ends up in a failure; only thing that has helped is complete reset of Windows. But I'd like to find out if there's anything else I can do after pressing f8 again (previously, I didn't realize it was caused by f8, but thought it was the software I was using at the time). I'm running my laptop without a battery, because batteries can't be sent by mail; it was sent to me from abroad. Could this be a factor, or is the model supposed to work fine without a battery? Thanks for any help!

Hi all,
I have a problem with my sister's computer, which used to be mine like 5 years ago.
DualCore Intel Pentium E2140, 1600 MHz, Gigabyte P4M900. 2,5 GB ram DDR2.
I had screen resolution problems with a new monitor last year and a BIOS update fixed it right way, so it's updated.

Fresh install of Win7 Ultimate x64, 4 days ago.
As soon as I open IE 10 it crashes right away, no matter if the home page is set up or it's blank. And it will reopen and crash again in an endless loop until I close it.
I read somewhere that it might be a problem with memory, and I kinda suspected that because I had some BSODs back then with WinXP. I ran Memtest86+ for 16 hours, 14 passes, and no errors were found.
I even tried using just one of the memory modules (one is 2gb and other 512mb), and swapping the slots. Same error.

I'm guessing some hardware issue or driver conflict? I really don't know.
This is the same exact system I installed in my mom's PC 2 weeks ago and also mine like a year ago and we have the same apps and it's alright.
My sister's PC barely has apps installed, just avast! antivirus, MS Office 2010, Adobe Reader and Java; nothing else.

This is the event log:
Problem signature:
Problem event name: APPCRASH
Application name: IEXPLORE.EXE

A:IE 10 crashing as soon as it starts

Can't help much without the dump(s). This should be posted in the BSOD thread.

The error code 0x2 (DEVICE_QUEUE_NOT_BUSY) is usually associated with incompatible hardware or drivers. It will sometimes show up when users install outdated drivers to support old hardware or try to use new drivers for old hardware. Was there any new hardware installed?

Also, Un-install Java unless there's a need for it. And it doesn't appear that the PC needs it with the noted software. Java is full of malware holes. You might have her update the AV and run a full scan too.

Hello,

After I start Windows 7, some programmes (e.g. Kaspersky, MS One Drive and BBC iplayer download) crash. Kaspersky and MS One Drive crash as they start. The BBC IPlayer download works but when I try to enlarge the screen, a message comes up saying 'BBC iPlayer Downloads.exe has stopped working' and the programme closes itself.

Just to briefly explain the background to this problem, after my Windows 7 auto update last week, my AMD Radeon 7400M display driver (14.100.0.0, version 17th April 2014) failed to work. So, I tried to upgrade the display driver. The problem started to deepen as I tried different things to rectify the problem. I ended up uninstalling the Flash Driver, and the problem did not go away, so I reinstalled it. To cut the long story short, I ended up going to the HP website and reinstalling the original switchable display driver (AMD 7470 and Intel (R) Graphics Family) the laptop came with.

I would really appreciate if someone could help me find the solution.

Thank you.

Hi, recently (after a 'critical' update) turning my Laptop on on the startup screen before you enter your password the cursor spins and doesn't show the log in box, it then proceeds to flash continuously (blue and black, not bsod) while not letting me do anything.

I can start the machine up in Safe Mode, but it's now stopped connecting to the internet in safe mode with networking.

I'm running Windows 7 Home x64bit and I'm on a Dell Studio XPS.

I can't system restore and I don't know where my windows boot disk is. (Any idea where I can get another without having to shell out...?)

Cheers for the help.

A:Windows 7 crashing on start up! Only starts up in Safe Mode

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.
Please attach the DMP files to your next post not to post one.

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:





Quote:
* 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:





Quote:
* 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.

Not sure where to post this but after playing World of Warcraft or too much multimedia playing, comp would crash. It would just freeze up.

It all started when I fooled around with Regedit and played around with the memory management and page pool size settings etc. I've set it back to what it was before but that didnt seem to have done anything.

Im thinking it had something to do with that or perhaps memory if not overheating.

How can I pinpoint my problem more?

Any scanners I can download etc?

Hello, not sure if this is a hardware problem or a software problem. But my brother's computer is crashes spontaneously, usually when he either runs a game or is using internet explorer(tho one time he left his computer on and left the room and came back and it was off, then he got an error message and we had to use the recovery console to fix it). Anyways, it works now, thought highly doubt it will stop from crashing again unless I do something. What steps would I take to ensure that it won't do that?

He's got windows xp home and avg free virus protector, windows defender, and I have ran the defrager, disc cleanup, scan disk, and scanned with windows defender and the avg free. Is there any other measures I can take to maybe fix an internal system error that keeps crashing his computer? or do you think its his ram cards(running dual 1 gig sticks, so 2 gigs total) or processor that's doing this?

Any help would be great. Thankyou and sorry if I posted this in the wrong category.

We would have no way of diagnosing the problem unless we have the error codes.

It is these files that we need (not the folder). Attach to your next post the five most recent dumps. Notice the Manage Attachments button at the bottom when you go to post the next time.

Hi guys,

For some reason my comp is crashing after about 2 minutes of being switched on. Very frustrating!! I have done a housecall scan which showed up a few things but would not delete one specific infection. I will try and get the name of it for you.

In the meantime I have a HJT log just in case there is anything on there. By the way, I did the log whilst in safe mode but will reboot and do another one for normal Windows.

Thanks in advance...

Hello,
I've just signed up to this forum and would really want some help regarding my computer which keeps crashing, i'm an intermediate comp user but i don't know much about troubleshooting errors.
I found another post somewhere in this forum where some guy seemed to be having a similar error, and had been asked for some infos so i just wrote down what it said on the blue crash screen.

After a bit of stuff saying what u should do if this is the first time u've seen this screen there's some technical info as follows - *** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x32354632, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x32354632).

Just below that there is a counter which is changing according to the percentage of physical which has so far been dumped onto the disk.

I'm pretty sure that i need to show a little bit more info that just this, but i don't know what is needed, plz don't mind to ask for any more infos to do with this problem.

Sorry about not being able to have any info on when it started to happen or after what change it started to happen, i just install and update software and drivers on my comp quite often, usually when there is a newer version.
But if i remember correctly i think it started to happen after i updated a few drivers.

If i need to display my comps stats i wouldn't mind doing so, just i cbs unless it's really needed.

Thx.

On friday I clicked on a site link and somehow a virus got into my system, and then when I ran a scan I found several viruses/trojans/worms including, Navidad, transponder drpmon, transponder aurora, drsch, and god knows what else.

I went to another help site and ran all the scans THEY said to run including adaware se. Afterwards I restarted my comp and there were still pop ups on my system and spyware. I ran mic anti spyware and it seemed to have removed them. But now I have a new problem, ever since I ran the scans on my pc and tried to remove the viruses now my ie doesn't work properly nor my netscape navigator, IE will start up and then the window will close, and when I do get ie to run my comp shuts down on me and reboots by itself.

I have no idea what to do and I am at my wits end, im trying to hurry up and type this before my comp crashes again.

Programs I have:
Windows Vista (Basic)
Kaspersky Anti Virus,

When i run them they just stop responding as does the laptop. Is it a security issue or is there something I can do?
