Blue screen at start up, wont start at all

Q: Blue screen at start up, wont start at all

Hi, using windows 7, have a blue screen at start up issue, memory dump. Sadly the PC wont start so unable to try too much, it lets you select user, attempts to ,log onto the user then just goes to mthe blue screen and starts the cycle again. Any ideas?? It will not start in safe mode either, basically the same result although sometimes it loads and you are in but when you try to do anything it goes to the blue screen again. I did get the error code (not always the same on the blue screen but this one comes up most time), "driver IRQL not less or equal"
Many thanks

Preferred Solution: Blue screen at start up, wont start at all

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

I have a Gateway Laptop Model No. W340UI with Windows 7 . A while ago I was playing a game I installed on it. Suddenly the game froze while I was leaving for lunch. After lunch I went back and it was till frozen, so I turned it off. Then I turned it on again and after the startup screen, the one that says Starting Windows, the screen would turn pitch black and all I could do was move the mouse. Then it would restart and the process would repeat itself. Then after a few hours, the System Recovery Tools appeared so I clicked the Startup Repair. It searched for repairs, but after it started Attempting the repairs, I noticed that it would never stop. It has literally been Attempting Repairs for 24 hours and nothing is happening. It won't let me do a System Restore and I never created a system image. Now whenever I Start Windows normally, right after the Starting Windows the screen flashes blue then restarts. Someone please help me!

So, this all started when I couldn't turn off my system restore. I was doing lots of tests (virus, spyware, adware) trying to figure out what was wrong. I did find a few things (Trojan.Agent , Trojan.Delf.li , Dialer.Small , Backdoor.Lot.e) and was able to get rid of them, but it didn't help my system restore problem. I was gonna send you guys a HijackThis file, but started with the 5 steps to do before. I was gonna scan with adaware in safe mode, but I've tried getting to safe mode before with just pushing f8 or f5 with no luck. So this time I used msconfig. Under the boot.ini tab, I checked /Safeboot and rebooted. I haven't been able to get back into windows since. I can get to 2 different safe mode selection screens but cant get into windows using any of the choices. I made it so it won't restart on failure, and that's when it takes me to what I think is the infamous Blue Screen Of Death.

I am using my girlfriends laptop right now so at least I can search for answers. I need my cpu and don't want to have to reformat or anything like that. I don't have any boot disks cause they went missing when I moved. Please help. I will check back often so please ask anything. I need to fix this.

A:windows xp wont start, I get the blue screen of death

I feel your pain FL Jeff.. I just went thru a similar problem. It is probably resolvable but I will leave that to others. The short answer is I threw a wad of money at my problem and am almost 100% back to normal. However it took almost 2 weeks and a lot of determination. The solution (for me) was:

Purchased a new PC and monitor - $1,300
Purchased an external WD 160 gig My Book HD - $81 + shipping
Purchased Data Rescue PC software - $129

I was able to set the old PC BIOS to boot from the CD drive. Booted from Data Rescue PC and recovered the files to the external HD. I said that like it was straight forward but ya gotta follow the instructions. (note: I bought the Western Digital HD because it is formatted as FAT32 which Data Rescue requires). The HD did not require an install - the old PC recognized it immediately. I connected the new HD to the new PC and it too read it immediately.

It sounds simple and after the fact it kinda was but it took quite awhile to recover the files.

I know this isn't the solution you wanted but know that all is not lost, you just need to be patient.

Good luck,

Hi so i was using my computer recently today and i turned it off and went to school.

I come back and i turn on my computer and it gets to the windows loading screen and then ill get a physical memory dump(blue screen) message and ill barely be able to read it since it will restart almost as soon as it comes up.

Toshiba Satellite A105-S1013
Windows XP Home (SP2 I believe)

My mom was on her Toshiba laptop this morning playing a game when "all of a sudden it went to a blue screen then went black." Her words, I was not there. Now it wont start. It will turn on but it wont boot up at all. All I get is a black screen. I have tried turning it on plugged in with the battery out thinking maybe just the screen went out or something. I have a bad feeling the hard drive went out and everything was lost. If possible, I would really like to save anything possible as she has all her files from school on it. I wish I had more information to offer. Any help whatsoever would be greatly appreciated. If I have left anything out or posted this in the wrong forum, please let me know.

Computer wont start up, after the windows loading screen there is a blue screen that flashes for a second then the computer just restarts.
Cannot go into any of the safe modes either or last known configuration same thing happens.
Have run recovery console and did a chkdsk /p, no probloems there so I figure it must be a virus or something?

My son has just dropped his desktop off saying it won't start!

It won't even boot up in Safe mode, looks like he may have a virus of some description.

After selecting safe mode, the screen goes blue and gives an error message:

Any suggestions how I can fix this????



A:Computer wont start, Blue screen STOP:0x0000007B

FWIW: 7B errors often occur when users have tried to either clean install or repair install Windows, IMO. So the error in itself is not necessarily significant.Some details about what occurred with the system before the cry for help by your son...would be of greater benefit than focusing on that error message, IMO.You might gain by reading STOP 7B Errors .You might also take a look at 7B, left column at http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm , to see the complexity involved in trying to determine cause of that particular error.Louis

Hello Experts…

My laptop is completely crashed and I am soooo looking forward to your help and support.

Windows continually reboots after showing a blue screen at Startup. It happens very quickly and I cannot even see what is the message on the blue screen.

All as well when suddenly I got a lot of malware popups when I tried to open internet explorer.
Next thing, my system crashed with a blue screen and not would not start-up in normal mode at all…. Not even using the last known good configuration.
The only way system would start is in safe mode.
So I started in safe mode a few times with networking and tried to fix but nothing… it still has problems.

If I even try to open google.com in safe mode with networking after searching on something like fix blue screen error or online support / virus scan… on clicking the link there is some malware that overrides and open and advertisement page every time….

I had SUPERAntiSpyWare Free edition… but when I start and try to update the virus definitions… I get a message that a firewall or setting is blocking the access for SUPERAntiVirus to the internet.

I did run HijackThis and I tried to fix some of the registry problems myself --- ones it thought were causing this problem. Nothing got fixed and in hindsight I think I should have just got some help here. Nonetheless it did run… but I got an error that registry updated is not allowed by the Administrator.

I also ran chkdsk and nothing happened. It ran succe... Read more

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

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

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

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

Hello, I have a problem with my Dell computer where on the start up it comes up with a blue screen saying:

stop: c000007b bad image. The application or dll \??\c:\windows\system32\sfcfiles.dll is not a valid windows image. Pleace check this against your installation diskette

This probem started when I wanted to do a disk defragment. It came up saying that first I needed to do a chkdsk thing. So I tried to do that and it said I had to restart the computer to make it run. So I did that, it did the chkdsk thing and then went to the blue screen with the error.

Each time I turn my computer off and back on, windows starts loading up, then it gives the option of doing a chkdsk, or pressing any key to continue. So I either do the chkdsk, and that runs for a few minutes and goes to that blue screen, or I press any key and that goes to the blue screen.

Also, I have tried going into safe mode on start up to try to fix the problem and to back up important files. A big list comes up on a black screen with a whole lot of lines with the last line being....


So I need some help in resolving the problem, or even in being able to back up important files if this can be done without safe mode. Thanks.

Are you able to eventually boot into the OS? If so, read the C:\Windows\Minidump\061914-23961-01.dmp file. You can do this by installing the Windows DeBugger tool (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315263#method3). Once installed, open the Windows Debugging program, right click WinDbg and run as administrator. Select open crash dump file and open the dump file. Click no to save the workspace info, and select the Command window. The info under bugcheck analysis will show you the service/driver that caused the blue screen. We can troubleshoot from there.

I really apologize in advance if this borders on breaking the rules of mentions illegal activity but i need help so much and know nothing about computers. You see the problem is I have a really old compaq running off windows 2000 and i kept getting these blue screens saying dumping physical memory whenever I was in the middle of doing things. When I used to get this problem I'd plug in my windows 2000 cd and start from scratch but I recently lost it. I thought it was be being caused by a virus and if i Got windows XP i could fix the problem by starting from sctratch again. Then I found out windows xp costs somewhere between 150-350$ and i come from a poor family going through hard times right now so getting that anytime soon is out of the question. Well I was told I could get windows XP for free by downloading it for which im guessing is illegal. my friend downloaded something called a windows activation crack and i have no idea what that was but it prob was illegal. i thought at the time maybe if you already have windows you can get an upgrade for free online. i now know that was a stupid thing to think but please dont ban me or get rid of my question im really in a tight bind. i know nothing about this stuff and i didnt know it was illegal at the time. well when he did that my computer restarted and now before anything loads up i get a new kind of blue screen saying something different. it has a bunch of 0's and X's at the top and it says if i never had this ...

I upgraded Vista to the Windows 7 RC last night and it seemed to go well, but when I start the computer now, I get a brief flash of the normal desktop, but then it goes to the blue screen and reboots.

I CAN start it up with no problem in Safe Mode, but I'm somewhat of a neophyte. How do I find out what program is causing the crash from there?

A:Blue Screen after start up

You can copy down the information from the BSOD for starters: How To Find Bsod Error Messages

And, you can zip up the contents of the C:\Windows\Minidump folder (it may be hidden) and upload it to your next post. That may give us some clues about the error.

Since it happens in normal mode, and not in Safe Mode - then it's likely to be a driver that loads in Safe Mode and not in normal mode. Then it's a matter of ruling them out one-by-one.

Have fairly new HP laptop. At times it will reboot out of the blue and on start up have the blue screen. When I finally get it started after a safe mode start up it will tell me there was a memory dump. This only happens on occasion.Yesterday I was on Facebook just looking at a page when another page popped up and started scanning saying I had trojans and viruses. Of course I did not go to the website they were trying to get me to go to.

Hi em4454. . .

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support!

Can your system boot-up at all past the BSOD into Windows?

Have you tried to boot-up into SAFEMODE by tapping the F8 key repeatedly during boot-up?

Please provide the manufacturer and model of your computer.

Regards. . .

I need some help please. One of my 2 teenage boys started the PC & it went to a blue screen, dumped physical memory, went to CHKDSK & kept repeating the process indefinately. I'm using my daughter's laptop to get to this forum. I have the recovery console installed but I'm not sure what to do. At the top of the blue screen it said:


at the bottom in said:

*** stop: 0x00000050 (xcd200000,0x00000000, 0x8053a933, 0x00000000)

Let me know what I should do. If I'm in the wrong forum please move this to the correct one. I don't think I have malware but I could be wrong. The PC was alot slower lately than it should have been. Thank you for any advice you can give me.


A:Blue screen at start up

This video shows exactly what is wrong with my computer. and thats it, it loops over and over again and even on safe mode it restarts.

My computer was always being kind of screwy. turning off on its own on at random points. but this time, the power went out and even since than, it started doing this.

So I was just wondering if there was anyway around this. I got these things called restore cd's but they don't do anything. the cpu doesn't read them and I don't think I want to reformat the computer because I have alot of stuff on there that I'd hate to lose.

Is there anyway around this without having to go to a repair shop??? any suggestions?

A:I get the blue screen on start up

In the menu for Safe mode
Have you tried Last known good configuration

If that doesn't work

Disable automatic restart in case of BSOD (syntax?)
Then read the error - reply back

If that doesn't work

Safe mode command prompt only
then run chkdsk /r
on the command line

If that doesn't work

You may need to remove all attached devices to your computer (printer so forth)
Try again

If that doesn't work

Then you may need to open the case (hardware experience required, also check user manual for precautions, and power out)
And begin reseating ram, data cables so forth
I'd even remove any PCI cards plugged in (ie 56K modem so forth)

Reply back after that

Hello -

When starting my computer I get a blue screen that says "1st Delete not found - skipping Autocheck." It stays up for only a few seconds then my computer continues to start up with no problem.

I'm pretty sure the reason for this is my recent install of both Zone Alarm Security Suite and System Mechanic 7 because it started at that time. Things got worse when a black screen replaced the blue one with the message: "NTLDR is missing. Press Ctrl, Alt and Delete to start." Pressing those didn't do anything but bring me back again and again to the same black screen. I was shut down with no way of getting past the black screen.

Several calls to Microsoft fixed the NTLDR problem. I then uninstalled both ZA and SM7 and replaced them with my old System Mechanic 3 that worked great for me for years and the free version of ZA. But I'm still getting the blue screen with the same message at start up.

When I uninstalled the two programs I made sure there was nothing left of them on my computer. And the old free ZA and SM3 have been on this computer for years with no problem so I don't know why I'm still getting the blue screen.

I'd appreciate any help on this. Thanks.

my pc got a blue screen when start up. i cant start my pc in security mode, nothing. pls some1 help me, i have importants docs in my hd, and i cant lose them..
I copy the blue screen message to a doc, and there it is:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

a process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer.

If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware of software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

If problemas continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disble BIOS memory options such as chaching or shadowing. If you ned to use Safe Mode to remove or disable componeents, restart your computer, press F8 to select AAdvanced Startup options, and then selecet Safe Mode.

Hello, and thank you for your time and help.
I have developed a problem with my computer. It blues screens on start up. I cannot start up in safe mode or using “last good settings” either. When I try to start up in safe mode it goes to the user log in screen but as soon as I select one of the user accounts, Blue screen. When trying to start up in normal mode or with the “last good settings” option, I don’t even get that far. This is what I get.
STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000018,0x00000002,0x00000000,0xF7B19261)

After spending a good deal of time searching forums and message boards for people with similar problems, I found many who had the same blue screen on startup problem but none that had the same error message. After looking up the error message this is what I got;

“The Stop 0xD1 messages indicates that the system attempted to access pageable memory using a kernel process IRQL that was too high. Drivers that have used improper addresses typically cause this error.
Possible Resolutions:
# Stop 0xD1 messages can occur after installing faulty drivers or system services. If a driver is listed by name, disable, remove, or roll back that driver to confirm that this resolves the error. If so, contact the manufacturer about a possible update. Using updated software is especially important for backup programs, multim... Read more
