Crashes immediately upon loading desktop screen

Q: Crashes immediately upon loading desktop screen

I updated to Windows 10 from Windows 8.1 yesterday. I have a HP Pavillion laptop and it was compatible for the upgrade. Since I have upgraded, everytime I log in it freezes immediately. I have left it for hours and it still won't unfreeze. I can't do anything on it and need it asap for schoolwork.

Preferred Solution: Crashes immediately upon loading desktop screen

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: Crashes immediately upon loading desktop screen

You have the option to revert back to 8.1 within 30 days.
There still seems to be some issues coming out for those taking it up.
It might be best to try W10 in a month when bugs are ironed out.

Does rebooting and updating work?

I'm pretty sure this is a virus, question is how do I fix it?

XP loads normally, briefly goes to desktop then goes to blue startup screen, where I'm forced to shut down/restart.

I've tried Last Known Good configuration, that doesn't work.

I've also scanned the hard drive for viruses from my other partition. It picked up a few but this hasn't fixed the problem.

Is my best bet a re-install?

Okay, here's the deal...
My computer is an EMachines T1140
It has a WD400B Caviar 40 gb hard drive with Windows XP pro installed and 128 mb of DDRAM
When I start the computer up, it says, "Windows could not be started successfully" and gives me the options of starting in safe mode, with last known good configurations, and normally. Each one I try brings me to the loading screen for XP pro, then reboots it's self an instant later. I'm rarely stumped here, but some help would be nice. I just need a general idea of what my problem is.

A:Xp Sp2 Hangs Immediately When Enter Welcome Screen/desktop

Do you know exactly when this problem began? (what date)

If you do - go to safe mode and choose safe mode with command prompt.

Type the following command at a command prompt, and then press ENTER:

%systemroot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe

Follow the directions on screen and choose a date that predeeds the onset of the problem.

Hello,

I have a recurring problem that is getting quite bothersome to be operating around. My issue is that about twenty seconds or so after I initially get to my desktop after logging into my computer the screen and seemingly the entire computer up and freezes, with neither the touchpad or the center keyboard mouse working. Ctrl-Alt-Delete does nothing, and the keyboard itself seems to go dead as well, forcing me to force a shutdown and only operate in Safe Mode. This has all occurred after I was tweaking the graphics display and the computer lagged a bit and froze, which i thought to not be a major problem until I tried shutting it down and restarting it, which is when the problem arose. I have Windows 7 Professional 32bit and the computer is a Lenovo X201 Tablet.

Hello.

I was having some problems with a virus I could not get rid of for the past few days. I've been working on this for a few days so I don't remember everything I did to end up at this point. This is my current situation:

I did msconfig (I think) and went into the boot.ini, enabled "start in safe mode", after rebooting I have not been able to get into windows again. This is what I have done since then: I have done a windows repair, after that didn't I went into Recovery Console and did a chkdsk /r. Still no good. I disabled restart on failure, and the blue screen says 0x0000007E, fltmgr.sys. When I check the listsvc in Recovery console it says fltmgr.sys is disabled. I tried enable fltmgr.sys but it just says "the registry entry for the fltmgr.sys service cannot be located. Check that the name of the last service is specified correclty."

Help!

Hi,
I have a Gateway laptop running Windows XP Home Edition (SP2). During the XP loading screen (the black screen with XP logo and green status bar) I would get a blue screen of death. The error message of this BSOD was:

STOP: c0000135 {Unable To Locate Component}
This application has failed to start because basekgjl32 was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

I was able to boot into safe mode and run a scan using AVG 7.5. I do not know what version of virus definitions I had.

AVG found a file named "basekgjl32.dll" in the C:\WINDOWS\system32 directory. AVG classified it as a trojan horse named BackDoor.Generic9.AJUI. AVG successfully healed it. I tried rebooting to see if that fixed the problem, but it did not. I still receive the same BSOD. To make matters worse, now I cannot boot into safe mode. I now receive the same BSOD when I try.

I have researched this BackDoor trojan and similar ones like it, but I have yet to find any methods of successfully removing it or dealing with this type of scenario.

Any help you could offer would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Andrew

I have been having problems with my family computer where Windows gets to the laoding screen and crashes, which it does in a loop and then occasioanlly turns on. I had this problem a while back but a change of hard drive and a clean install of Windows 7 (it was previously XP) seemed to of cured it. But last night the problem returned, there was a BSOD out of no where and then it returned into its looping process.

I switched out the current hard drive, RAM and CPU with my other gaming computer and it also caused that to crash. So I first took out the hard drive and it still crashed but swithing the RAM again seemed to of cured the problem. However, when I put different RAM in the computer with the initial problems it still came up with the same problem.

Anyway here are my specs.

Battlefield 2142 works perfectly fine on my computer, on this game i played it after I installed battlefield 2(I got the collectors edition) and it worked fine(this is on SP) only it was a bit laggy/slow. Then I installed the whole thing, and i put click on the icon and it would show a loading screen, that woudl go poof then a black screen blinks up and then nothing happends.

This is what ive tried

compatibility techniques(with properties)
Couple tricks i learned online
updated direct X
updated My drivers
and some other things.

In my opinion its Vista, I don't know why it doesn't like this game... Can anyone assist me? Brand new game I got, I got tired of playing the same games over and over...

While installing only 1 error came up a few times

"Battlefield 2 was only tested on 32 bit color"\

Only error I got.
Can anyone give me a simple solution(Buying another computer isn't a solution, this is brand new.)

Also I would like to note I waited a WEEK INA HALF just to receive a confirmation email from this site to make a account.

Hi all,

I have a problem with my new computer. I am also new to windows 7 and am still getting used to everything. On the first start up of the day windows crashes to a BSOD just after the loading screen. I start windows repair on the restart and let it do its thing, then windows starts up fine. I doubt that windows repair did anything as no messages came up on startup or during the repair.

I don't have any information of the BSOD, my motherboard restarts after the crash and I don' get a chance to read the problem, I will post the problem when I have worked out how to stop it automatically restarting.

The computer runs fine after it is "warmed up" so to speak, and I am guessing thats why it starts after Start up Recovery has done its thing which appears to be nothing

I have attached 2 minidump files from previous crashes, windows didn't make one of the most recent.

Anywho, any help would be greatly appreciated, it's not really a problem but more of a nuisance.

A:Windows Crashes to BSOD after loading screen

ok, heres an update.

I stopped windows restarting after a crash and I could write down some info about the BSOD that came up most recently. It had the stop codes 0x0000008e (0XC0000005, 0x82CD9A8A, 0x8C7936A4, 0x00000000) with an error with NTFS.SYS PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA.

Windows didn't just start up this time, I had to run startup recovery, and this time it said that it couldn't fix the problem and sent up an error in the system file integrity check part of the test with a code of 0x490.

I told windows to make a full dump file, so I cant send it my bad. I have changed but any help would be greatly appreciated.

I can't use windows media center either because it gives me a blackened file windows where the windows media center startup screen is supposed to be.

Also yesterday night I was unfortunate enough to receive a blue screen with a bunch of error codes so I shutdown my computer unplugged it and went to bed...

Ok, I have basically no computer knowledge, but I will describe my problem to the best of my ability. The other day my cousin came over for a barbeque, he is supposably the family computer genius so I let him on my computer. He started editing the registry, saying he was removing so called "viruses". I have no knowledge of what he added/removed to/from the registry during this time but when I next went on the computer after he had left (all he did after editing the registry was exit the registry editer) I was unable to click on any of my desktop short cuts or the buttons on the menu bar such as start. I then rebooted by holding the power button thinking everything would be fine but the computer froze after the windows xp loading screen, showing the screen where you login to your account, except with only a windows xp logo in the middle of the screen, no login tabs. I tried rebooting numerous times but the problem persisted. I have no idea where to go from here. If any extremely smart and computerly talented people have any ideas about solving my problem, please explain in full detail, as I have only basic computer knowledge. I may not be able to answer any questions you have for several days as I can only do this at a friend?s house now. Thanks for reading this and I apologise for any bad spelling/grammar. I am only fourteen years old.

Hi,

First post so here goes....

Just built a new pc using asus k8n mobo.

Formatted both hard disks 40gb maxtor ide hdd and 200gb sata hdd.

Installed windows xp on the sata drive.

On reboot after the format and file transfer stage, the computer froze on the windows xp loading screen (the one with the logo and the bar the goes across) It doesnt total freeze, the bar keeps going but never gets past that screen.

So I booted from cd again, froze in the windows installed on the disk checking of the sata drive.

Plugged the sata drive back in and reformatted it so now hav ide with windows, sata as backup. freezes on boot screen?!

My desktop pc has recently started to not load up / boot when I turn it on.

When it manages to turn itself on it all works ok. However oftentimes I have to turn it on and turn it off repeatedly until it finally starts to function.

After going through the same problem today, the pc finally turned on properly and I got into Windows. A few moments after that, the electricity was cut.

Now the pc manages to load up until the Windows XP logo and then crashes. At the loading screen the pc makes three grinding sounds (don't know how to call this... my pc is purring at me ). A blue screen appears for a split second and the pc reboots. No matter what option I select, be it to load in safe mode, last good configuration, and so on, the pc always resets at the XP loading process.

I believe it has something to do with hardware because of the issue with the pc intermittently not even booting up.

I am not too savvy when it comes to pc's, can someone suggest what may be wrong?

I have 2 hard disks, 80 Gb and 500 gb which are both compatible with the rest of the computer.

The OS was initially installed in the 80GB drive and was working fine till I got a message on startup saying it had failed the S.M.A.R.T test and crash was imminent. So I loaded XP onto the the 500GB disk and removed the 80GB disk. Everything was working fine except on start up I was given two OS to boot from, the second one now obsolete since the disk was removed.

So I entered the System Configuration Utility and using the "Check All Boot Paths", (made a system restore point before this) deleted the option that no longer was in use and rebooted the system. Except that upon loading desktop it rebooted within a minute.
I tried restoring using system restore but the same problem continued. So I tried repairing my installation using the Windows XP CD. After it did a repair, and upon boot and installing in place of the 'Welcome' screen, the screen turns black. However I have control over the mouse pointer. But Ctrl-Alt-Delete, Ctrl-Esc or right click, nothing of this sort works. Even booting in safe mode leads to the same result, except the black screen has 'Safe Mode' written in the corners.

Kindly advise, using Windows XP Media Center Edition.

A:Windows XP welcome screen black, not loading desktop.

It sounds like your system is already set to boot from CD. Perhaps you should try reinstalling Windows on the new drive. That way your MSCONFIG issues would be settled, the OS would now recognize your new configuration, and it sounds like you might have a video issue although it could just be a corrupt install. I'd suggest trying a reinstall of XP.

Good day.

A:Windows XP welcome screen black, not loading desktop.

First pull out the 80 gig hard drive, and see if it boots with just the 500gb drive by itself, If not, Insert the windows CD, reboot press a button to boot from CD. Skip the first repair option the next time it talks about repair do that one. You should see two partitions, a big one and a smaller one, select the larger of them to repair. The computer will fix the os and then reboot this time do not press the any key and just let it boot. I think what you may have happened is you had an backup windows on the 500gig, and pointed the boot to boot that os. Also if you have a damaged Hard drive, and even if you are not booting from it, having the corrupt or laggy hd will lead to boot issues,

This post is in connection with the AOL and IE problems post but I want to have a separate post for my Hijack This log.

The problem is that IE is generating errors when certain pages load (seems to be no pattern to the type of page - that is: secure, lots of images, lots of links etc). This problem translates to the AOL browser as well since it seems to use the IE program (somehow) to access the Internet. With AOL, the page loads then immediately closes.

I restored my version of IE back to 5.0 then reinstalled SP 6.0 to see if that would help, no dice. I'm using a Win98 OS with AOL 7.0

As a side note; this forum will not load in AOL or IE under the current circumstances (Using the Mozilla browser as I post)

RELEVANCY SCORE 52.4

On this windows XP Pro laptop when I start the system it goes to the select profile screen. When I select the User it starts to load the profile and then immediately displays "saving settings" and then logs off. I have tried to start in all three safe modes but it still does the same logoff. I have booted to an XP Disk command prompt and ran chkdsk c: /r. Upon completion the system continues to load and reboot.

I have searched the net and not found any answers.

Has anyone else experienced this?

As soon as I open my jukebox it immediately closes out again. My guess would be that its a .dll issue but Im not sure how to go about fixing it. I dont think I have installed anything new on my computer recently aside from a couple games. I tried updating to the latest version of jukebox but the problem persists. Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Dear Anyone.

I did have IE6, which crashed within about a minute of being launched. So I uninstalled it, installed Firefox and downloaded IE7.

Which is doing precisely the same thing. You launch it, it crashes within about 10 seconds saying "Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close". Which is not the most helpful error message I've ever seen.

Anyone got any ideas? It isn't a conflict with Firefox, because I had IE6 BEFORE Firefox and that was crashing in exactly the same way, it just lasted about 30 seconds longer.

I'm having a rather odd problem that is driving me nuts trying to figure it out, my best guess is it's something to do with the display drivers or some other driver that is loading during start-up. Here's the issue, I wake up in the morning and turn my PC on, the splash screen comes up for my motherboard, windows boots up just fine, next the welcome screen..all is good up until that point. As soon as I get to the desktop I get these weird horizontal static lines...it's hard to describe, the lines don't go all the way across the screen, they just sort of appear randomly, but they mainly are to the right of the screen ( when viewing it ).

While this is going on I sometimes get a random black screen that last for a second or two, then when the desktop is done loading everything all is fine again, no static, no black screens.

Hi there,
For a few days I have been having some problems with my computer. Whenever I shutdown properly and then start again, the Desktop loads fine and after a few seconds of coming to the desktop. I see a black screen in front of me, I try to press num lock on and off to see if the system froze, it indeed froze. I disabled fastboot, after that even if I start after shutdown, it boots fine.

If I restart, it boots fine. Not sure why as my system should be fully compatible with fast boot. Here is my system specs, everything is updated as of posting:

i looked up all those programs i deleted, and i don't think they are casuing this loading issue.

is it possible i bumped the video card when moving my laptop, and is that would could cause the black screen before my desktop, b/c i notice that after the 5 min. pause once the desktop DOES show up... everything is loaded, and my internet connection is ready...

Everything freezes, I have no control either with the mouse or keyboard. Happens every time i try to reboot.

Booted once in safe mode, worked ok, found these error codes:

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you is a solution is available." I have re installed the program and have used system restore to go back to when the program was working but still the same issue.

Where can I find more details about this error so I can go about trying to fix it. The exact same program works without any problem on my other computer that I sync to. When I open up the Windows Event viewer I see the issue under "Windows Logs - Application" as an error report but I have no idea what information on there is generic and what defines the problem or if this is even the place to look.

Hi,
 
I'm running XP SP3. When my computer starts, I see the taskbar flash on and then disappear, and the same thing happens when I try to launch the explorer.exe process from the command line. This also happens in safe mode. All system checkpoints from before the start of this problem have disappeared so I can't do a system restore. I've run malwarebytes and not found any viruses. I can launch individual programs from the command line (which I start from task manager), so that is what I'm doing for now. If anyone has any ideas on how to fix this I would greatly appreciate it.

PLEASE someone, help me! My PC is running the 7 Ultimate RC, build 7100. My problem is this:
When I boot my computer, it does the normal stuff, and then, about 5 seconds after my log-in screen shows, the computer just shuts off. There's no shut-down sequence, no warning, no BSOD. Just a straight *FSHEW*(that happy noise when something dies, btw), and it's gone. I press the button, turn it back on, same thing. It will crash like this anywhere after it first starts up. Sometimes, it only makes it to the second screen of boot info, sometimes I can log on, and it stays on for about two minutes, and then it dies. Anywhere between there, it WILL die. On a very, VERY rare occasion, it will stay on. I typically shut my PC down before I go to sleep, but after this began, I've been leaving it on sleep mode every night. That was after I wrestled for about three hours rebooting it over, and over, and over again, until it finally stayed on. It stayed on for about a month like this. Well, our power went out recently, so I had to go over the dreaded process again. It worked fine. I was shocked, and shut it down that night. The next day it was h-e-double hockey sticks trying to get it going again. It's been 'sleeping' like me every night since then. However, today is D-day for us RC users, and it expires in 18 hours, or so it tells me. Which means 2 hour periods of playtime. Well, I can't even get it to stay on for two MINUTES, let alone two hours. So this is going to be fun. I know, I shoul... Read more

A:W7 will not boot, crashes immediately - DESPERATE

Well, I'm no debugger but:

I have a similar situation where my computer WILL run into fast BSODs (those that just flick and go away) after I shut it down and reboot the next morning. Currently I'm using a simple solution - after I boot and run into the first crash, I'll press the power button till the computer shuts down. Then I boot it again, in normal mode (it will ask whether to switch to safe mode) and it will never crash on the second go.

You could try that and post back. It's no real solution, but beats working a couple of hours on getting to log in.

You may try the troubleshooting steps listed in this tutorial to see if that helps: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb...t-and-get-help

I am using ie7 and winxp on my computer and have recently had an issue with it. When I try to open explorer the window closes before it actually loads up. Bits of the taskbar keep turning grey as well like the old style windows.

I have tried removing all add ons and resetting internet settings but have had no luck. The connection is okay with other computers. On the problem computer the icons on the taskbar says it is there until I click on it when it disspears. I have tried downloading and running programmes like spybot on it (downloading them onto another disk and then transferring them onto the computer) but most seem to need to use the internet to run them. I cant use the web at all so solutions like installing ie6 dont seem possible either. I have ran hijack this here is the log. Any help would be most appreciated.
