Q: completely crashed system...

o.k., i'm giving this a try. my daughter's computer has been REALLY down for about a month now, nothing but black screen to reboot,safe,last configuration, etc. none do anything but repeat the screen or randamly go to the HP start screen. when i boot with the recovery console disc, it reaches the console and asks me to choose which do i want, install, R for repair, you know. then it will start the process over. i do find that it's missing systemconfig32, AND error code 14. setup cannot contnue when i try to load the compaq recovery disks. lately filei386halaacpi.dll COULD NOT BE LOADED has shown up. this is recent, though. i broke down and spent $60 with HP. WHAT A DOPE! don't think he knew any more that ME, and i know very little. lots of help would be greately appreciated-i've been out of work with a double back fusion for 6 yrs., it failed and i cannot work. gots little cash for circuit city! i've been reading the site for 4 days solid or until the wife yells too much to stand.

thanks for all the info already, it's been quite helpful.

Preferred Solution: completely crashed system...

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: completely crashed system...

Lets try some troubleshooting and see if it could be a hardware issue.

If you are comfortable working inside the computer, shutdown the computer, open the side of the case, remove all PCI cards except the Video Card if it is PCI or AGP, unplug all hardware from the computer except the Keyboard, Mouse, & Monitor, then boot and see if the same problem happens.

Post back with the exact error messages.

Hi,

My system (Windows 7 64 bit) was running a bit slow here and there earlier today, then all my programs froze up (although my mouse still worked), so I re-booted. I got some error about a disc error then was sent to the black screen with the white loading bar, followed by the black windows screen with a green loading bar. The start-up repair dialogue came up and tried to help, but couldn't fix whatever the problem was.

I went to the command prompt and ran chkdsk c: and it showed it as being fine, but only ~100 large (my C: is usually a ~60gig SSD). I ran it on d: (which turned out to be my 1gb hd) and e: (which turned out to be my actual boot disc, the SSD). I tried to run chkdsk e: /r, but it gave some error after a while, said it was in RAW format (which it certainly wasn't when I installed it) and then failed to recognize it in future attempts to run chkdsk on it. I ran bootrec.exe and it said I didn't have any Windows installations on any drives. I went to restart it again at some point, and it went to the BIOS screen, to the screen where it lists devices (like normal) loaded the white bar again, then gave me a bsod.

I found my dvd for Windows 7 and loaded my BIOS options and set all 3 boot devices as CD Drive, but it still does the same thing where it appears to be trying to load off the SSD/HD, then white loading bar, then bsod. I can't really figure out anything to even do to trouble shoot at this point, as I'm stuck in this bsod loop. ... Read more

A:System crashed now almost completely unresponsive

well, when you are on the main screen of your bios (in the resume when booting not in the config area) there is always a F XX button to force to be booted to. in newer pcs its F11 but in your bios might be different try to read that screen.
also you might have to delete all your partitions to do a clean install. try to get a live cd from linux and do dvd with backups (if you have differents hard disks then just copy and paste dont do dvd backups)
then delete all the partitions on the disk that has the windows 7 and start all over.

Hi, I love this site and you guys have helped me so much, so first of all, thank you!

Now the bad news.... I got the WIndows Vista Repair virus about a month ago on my Acer PC. At first, it ran all of those warning messages and then it shut down the computer and reloaded as what appeared to be a completely wiped computer. The only icon on the desktop was the Windows Vista Repair. I tried to find programs by searching for a few minutes before trying to shut down (which the virus had also made me incapable of doing), and resorting to popping out the battery to shut it down. I restarted in safe mode with networking and tried to get on this site, but even in safe mode my browser was auto-redirecting me to sales sites. By following instructions for removal on this site, and downloading programs onto a flash drive from a different computer, I was able to get my computer in working order again, although it would still, at times, randomly shut down my internet browser (and the process and amount of time I spent getting it just to that state of operation was ridiculous, much worse than any virus I've EVER had...I can explain what all happened and the steps I took if necessary). A couple of weeks later, I left my computer on while I went to a friend's house for the night, and when I came back in the morning I couldn't get it to unfreeze. I shut it down and for the next two days, every time I tried to turn it on it would just run on a loop, booting up part of the way bu... Read more

I was just on firefox earlier today. I cannot use it now. I keep getting the crash report pop-up. I sent error report to firefox and clicked the restart firefox tab and it took me right back to the crash report pop-up. I really dont like IE. Right before it crashed I was on the Microsoft support page because on windows when I double click to open a file or folder the search results page would pop up. I think I fixed that because the "fix it now" button on Microsoft support page opened in IE. So firefox is dead at this point.

Welcome to the forum!

Sounds like you could have a nasty virus. You will need another good computer to download and create rescue media. This article describes some of the ones out there, there are others: 15 Free Bootable Antivirus Tools (Updated February 2015)

Beyond that it could be some other hardware or software problem. You may have to try a repair install if you have an installation disc.

I was helping my friend's father the other night. He is in his mid seventies and complained that all of a sudden he was getting all these pop up ads and couldn't even use his computer because it was so frustrating. He has had the computer for a little over a year and has never downloaded any updates. I figured I would download the microsoft updates to the computer and the security patches. There were about 25 security downloads, the last 6 which were the security pack. Everything downloaded and it was installing fine until it came to the second to last one, part of the pack when a blue screen came up and said there was something potentially dangerous for the computer. It said to re-boot and see if it appears again. I re-booted and was not able to get back into the computer at all, it completely crashed. I tried to re-boot in the safe mode and it wouldn't. The only thing that it allowed me to do was hit F2 & F12. You can go into those menus but nothing I did in them got me back into Windows. The windows logo pops up when you first turn it on and then right from there the screen just goes blank and I get absolutely nothing. The guy that owns it is older, so I don't think he would download anything questionable, he usually just uses it to check stock quotes and financial information. Any suggestions?

Try reinstalling windows with the original factory CD's that came with his computer.

I noticed today that many links were leading to Tazinga. I googled to find a solution to remove this virus then Antivir popped up. I followed the instruction on this site and used Malwarebytes to remove the infected files. But it didn't help. Now no application will work, no browsers and my background turned black. I also used PCTool's PC Doctor and it found nothing. I tried to find the files manually through Regedit and found nothing. I tried to follow the directions from the preparation guide. I ran DDS successfully but could not run the GMER properly. It was only allowing me to check off Registry, Files and ADS. Is it because I was in Safe mode? It found nothing.

Hi,

Don't reformat yet. First of all, boot into safe mode WITH networking (if you don't know how - Getting into Windows Safe Mode) and then:

Please navigate to C:/Windows/Minidump and zip up any dump files located there that you'd like to have analyzed, and then attach that zip here. If there are no dumps located in C:/Windows/Minump, you may be writing full memory dumps to C:/Windows, and it'll be called MEMORY.DMP.

If there are no dumps in either of those locations, but you know you have a page file set up, any "cleaner" programs such as TuneUp Utilities, CCleaner, etc, will delete this upon use.

From Problem Reports and solution, these are the service that crashed:

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.

Hello to all,

A month back I accidentally deleted the wow6432 node from my registry under system_user. I believe this is the root of all my problems. Once I did that, my toshiba c885 D 64 bit would not boot. I forced the computer to shut down and pressed f12 to get to the system recovery options. I then restored to a point before my blunder. Well, my laptop worked for a while and then magically the screen goes black and will not reboot. I did sestem restore a few more times since I could get a little bit of work done in between restoring and the screen turning black again. After I was fed up with having to run system restore every other day, I decided to run system refresh to keep my files but reset everything else. After restoring I am getting the same problem and find myself again running system restore every other day just to keep working.

My questions are if I completely reinstall windows 8 and start from scratch, will this definitely solve the problem? I thought system refresh would have worked, so I'm not sure. Also, are there any other available options for me to fix my computer without starting from scratch?

Thanks so much in advance! -Aaron

A:System Restore and System Refresh not working completely!

Hi awrontherise,

Since you did not provide your specs, all my suggestions are just speculative in nature; however, I can tell you that a clean install will fix all system software corruption but if you also have hardware and/or driver issues they will have to be addressed separately. So, based on what you have told us so far, I would recommend this as your first step:

Repair Install Windows 8

Now, if the above doesn't work, you may have to take this route:

Clean Install - Windows 8

Good luck.

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.

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.

- I can not reach to the welcome screen
- 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.

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!

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.

I am running vista on an acer laptop. Last night it crashed. When i turn it on a black screen with safe mode options pops up. I tried that but it starts to load and nothing happens after that. I don't mind if i can't recover any files because all i really had on there was pictures and music.

If there are any tips that could help me out to get my computer up and running again, please let me know.

I think that I wiped out some registry files prior to rebooting. Now can not access system, not even open BIOS setup.
Put Win xp pro disc in and rebooted many times, pushing DEL to open BIOS setup, but can not. Only comes up motherboard flash screen.

I really screwed up and have no idea how to access BIOS setup. This is a work machine so in a tight spot.

Any suggestions would be great!

You could try slaving the HDD in another system and trying to retreive the contacts that way.

Hello everyone, im new to this site so i will appreciate any help and return it if ever i can. I think Spyware crashed my system (XP SP2) it was acting slow and as soon as I went to install Trend Micro anti spyware it literally shut me down. Now I dont know if spyware is that smart but anyway my desktop is worthless right now. It freezez before safe mode starts and I cant accomplish anything else. All I want is to retrive my files and pictures off of the drive then i will have no problem reloading win xp. I tried a USB to IDE cable but I cant access any of my files it tells me access denied. Any suggestions please let me know., Thank you

A:I think spyware crashed my system

Do you get the Access Denied error for all files, or only things inside of your Desktop or Documents and Settings folder? You may want to see if this helps: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308421



Otherwise you could download " The Ultimate Boot CD" and follow these instructions to burn the CD. Note that you will need any OEM or RETAIL XP Home or Pro CD with SP1 or SP2 to burn the cd. You can boot from the CD and then copy the files to a USB drive.

An alternative boot cd would be a Linux Live CD if you only have recovery CDs.

Let me know if you get any errors when trying to copy the files to a USB drive. There may be a tiny, tiny chance that the virus altered your hard drive permissions.

Hope it helps,

So, I did a stupid thing, deleted some files, and crashed my computer. I tried a safe reinstall of windows (which was not supposed to write over anything) but even after that I can get windows to install/run properly. It's windows XP. 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.

I used combo fix to scan my system so I could list a log. I asked for help with my hijack this log and didn't get any help.

I ran combo fix and had to reboot my computer. It rebooted to a blue screen that says it halted and there are system parts missing. I am on another computer because I can't get past it. I was so close to getting it all cleaned up and now nothing.

Help please. I can plug in the computer and tell you exactly what it says if I need too.

The first time I thought it was because I was running some other stuff at the same time, my system simply froze. I couldn't move the mouse or use the keyboard, but I did see the hourglass appear and disappear on my mouse cursor.

The second time I tried to use it I left it alone to scan and I got a blue screen error (which I took a picture of with my digital camera) and I took a screenshot of the log it posted after I rebooted my system, or the locations where the error files are. It told me the system recovered from a serious error.

Ok....Everyone has the right to say "I told ya so!" I have read the posts about the freaking SP2 monstor. I tried to take all the necessary precautions such as getting rid of any spyware and uninstalling my adaware and spybot programs before downloading SP2. Now this is what happened...I restarted after downloading and my system does four things...1. displays the microsoft XP load page for 6 seconds. 2. Blank screen for 16 seconds. 3. HP logo on blue screen for 4 to 6 seconds. 4. Blank screen for 6 seconds amd then loops back to the microsoft XP load page. I have contacted MSN support about this and was told that I have to call their SP2 support that has a different number and hours that they work. So I am on my daughters computer posting this dire request for help while waiting the time to pass for the freaking peeps at MSN to get their sorry butts to work. And to thing that regular support suggested that I call HP for help at $35.00 an hour! Told MSN that they would get the bill and for that I was promptly hung up on! Ok Mr. Bill Gates; I got a bone to pick with you!

i had a computer freeze today , i rebooted and it wouldnt get past post , just went to a black screen with no operating system start up , i rebooted again and tried to get into safe mode , but it stalls at a point where it says;
multi(O)diskrdisk..etc etc Sys32drivers\Mup.sys

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

i thought the HDD was faulty , so installed a brand new HDD , tried to install windows on that but get the same problem ., it just hangs and wont start windows.

any suggestions ,it is obviously a hardware issue , it cant be the HDD as i replaced it with a new one............... ???

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!

-Grant

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.

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.
I am planning on buying a new HD and installing my OS in it if I can't come up with an alternative.

Don't have all my hardware info but it's an AMD 2X64 cpu and a decent gigabyte MB with onboard graphics. I don't have a video ca... Read more

As title indicates my system has crashed. I figured since the hdd was pretty corrupted it would be ok to format it using a vista img since I have a valid product key and there lyes my problem.

I have a OEm product key and a HP pav dv7 1260us. When I got my laptop it as usual came with no cd's. After reinstalling the OS I came to find out after it first said my key was ok that everytime I go to retsrt computer it saids my key is invalid. Idk what to do at this point. I looked all over the internet to find a OEm version since the retail will not accept OEm keys because of a invalid certificate. So what can I do? My computer now is constantly in a "windows needs to activate 30 more days" state and it won't accept my key. I have called microsoft just to have them tell me i have to contact HP for their original cd's however it cost around 40 for them. I do not simply have the money atm. Can anyone help?

A:(OEM KEY PROBLEM) System crashed

Vista OEM and Retail disks are bit-identical.
The only difference is the Key itself.

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool
(download and save to desktop - http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=52012 )
Once saved, run the tool.
Click on the Continue button, which will produce the report.
To copy the report to your response, click on the Copy button in the tool (ignore any error messages at this point), and then paste (using either r-click/Paste, or Ctrl+V ) into your response.
- **in your own thread**, please

Please also state the Version and Edition of Windows quoted on your COA sticker (if you have one) on the case of your machine (or inside the battery compartment), but do NOT quote the Key on the sticker!

Then it freezes. I let it stay here for 18 hours and nothing. Tried to boot with my old vista windows disk and can not get a fix or get back to loading anything. Latest error said windows can not fix problem. Frequant black screen of death after bios or it goes to above point and stops.

Any help would be appreciated.

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.
