Please look at the screenshots below. It hangs on the windows screen and then goes to blue screen. I ran a dell diagnostics test and everything checks out OK.

Preferred Solution: Having issues starting up computer and kernal issues win 7 professional

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.)

Computer has not been working good for several weeks. It keeps shutting down and giving me a blue screen of death. Some days it will happen within minutes of logging in other times it won't happen for several hours or if I am lucky a day or two.  Right now I am logged under safe mode because it has been happening so much. Would appreciate some help with this issue. Thanks!!

I recently installed Advanced System Care onto my computer and I now seem to have a issue when I start my pc.

The PC will load and say that the computer did not shut down properly last time and want me to run recovery tool and then come back to say it was unable to fix the issue.

If I choose the option of start without running recovery toll the pc will load, but I don't know what damage this could be doing.

Does anyone know if Advanced Care could be linked to this?

I suspect it has deleted a file and the computer is now getting confused.

Hey everyone I am new to this site and hopefully you guys will save me from my computer issues. I am slow on the comp
So whenever I start up my computer the windows xp logo comes up with the loading bar like normal but when the blue screen that says welcome comes up it stays on longer then usual and then my background comes up but the desktop or start bar never loads up and when i push ctrl+alt+delete it says it was disabled by the administrator.

I tried putting it on safe mode but i have no idea how to get it up. I get a screen that on the bottom F1 to Continue, F2=setup, F12=Boot Menu, F10=Utility mode and I dont know where to go from there i tried combinations of different things but nothing seems to get me on safe mode

So if anyone can help me then I would appreciate it so greatly if you need anymore details let me know

A:[SOLVED] Issues When Starting My Computer Up

Hi, I know this probably wouldn't be a recommended method by most but one way I use to get into safe mode is press the reboot button while windows is loading which should give a warning about how Windows did not start properly or something then give you the option to start windows normally or in safe mode.
This probably wouldn't be a recommended method and it might cause more damage but if nothing else works it might be worth a try.

I hate to join and then throw a question out there immediately, but I really need some help. My computer randomly shut off while I was working on it yesterday. It would turn back on a few minutes later, with the same issue occurring. I then realized the fan on the power supply was not turning, likely causing the computer to shut off on overheating. I have another similar emachine computer in my basement from my in-laws which I use for parts.

Well, I took the power supply from that one (which I found to be identical) and plugged it into mine. The fan on the CPU and fan on the power supply turned on immediately (which seems to indicate that the unit still thinks it is overheating).

Anyway, the fans never shut off, and the computer won't power up, even if i switch back to the old power supply which worked previously for a few minutes before overheating. I don't want to spend a lot of $ to get this thing working (it's about 3 yrs old), I just really want my data back.

Knowing nothing about computers, my guess is some sort of sensor went bad and now the computer thinks it is overheating and won't power up, even though that isn't the case. Can anyone offer suggestions?

Much appreciated.


A:n00b with computer not starting issues!

Hello and welcome to Techspot.

This is just a guess.

I don`t think your problem is one of overheating.

The fans in the psu and on cpu are supposed to run all the time, so no worries there.

Unfortunately in my opinion, when the original psu died, it`s probably damaged the mobo(motherboard).

Other members might have other ideas.

P.s I have moved your thread to a more appropriate forum.

Hi all,

I have been experiencing some issues for a while whereby I get a BSOD when I play any number of games.


I have already had a bit of a look around and gathered that this frequently refers to an incompatible driver. My question is how do I tell which one as none of my devices in Device Manager are showing as unknown? Also nothing shows up in the problem devices of my System Information either?

I have taken a look at the event viewer for the times that this has occurred and can see the following entry every single time:






The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first. This error could be caused if the system stopped responding, crashed, or lost power unexpectedly.

My system info is as follows:

This is most likely related to your GPU.
Update the drivers, or if on the latest drivers already, revert back to a previous driver.
Check system temps with HWMonitor or GPU-z, the VRM section of the card may be overheating.
Another possible cause is unclean power from the PSU, check voltages in the BIOS fpr 3.3, 5 and 12V's

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.

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:

* 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:

* 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.

Upon starting up my Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit gaming computer today, major issues have arisen. I have fund that most things are disabled in services. some things i was able to get back up and running by setting to manual/auto and starting them, but many core things give me "Windows could not start [Service name] service on local computer. Error 1068: the depenndency service or group failed to start".
What i cannot do includes but is not limited to:Connect to the internet
Change color scheme from classic
uninstall a program

I have tried to reinstall windows (and go back to factory settings, but that gives me "windows cannot copy files required for installation. the file may be corrupt or missing. make sure all files required for installation ar availble and restart the installation.. Error code 0x80070241.

Looking at this ive come to the conclusion that "Virus = Very yes" and while i understand i'm pretty screwed here, ive dealt with quite a few viruses, but this one has me stumped. And honestly i literally hadnt downloaded anything the last time it was running, so all should be fine, but its clearly not. Help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello, all. I just bought a used computer and installed a fresh operating system on it, Windows 7 Ultimate. I had a lot of fun installing all of my programs on it, making sure everything was up to date, and customizing it a little bit, but then I started getting blue screen errors. After it happened a few times, I started trying to analyze them myself, but am in over my head. All I know is that every time there's a crash, the origin comes from the NT Kernal & System, which I've read either points in the direction of bad or outdated drivers or faulty hardware. I've done a complete harddrive scan, as well as memory test to make sure it isn't faulty hardware, leading me to believe (and hope!) that the hardware is fine. Windows Updates says that my drivers are up to date and on my GPU I've turned back my drivers from the most recent beta drivers to the most recent WHQL-certified drivers. Not being able to trace it any further than the Kernal, I'm unsure of what driver to update/change or what program to uninstall. Attached is the SevenForums Diagnostic Tool compressed report. Can someone who understands this a bit better than I do please please point me in the right direction or tell me what you think is going on?

hi, welcome to TSG.
I don't see anything wrong with your log, except for too many programmes running!
When was the last time you ran disk defragmenter?
you have far too many start up items, use the link below to trim them down.


Try trunning these tools see if they find anything and ccleaner will get rid of a lot of unnecessary files like temp files etc!
download ccleaner

* Install CCleaner
* Launch CCleaner and look in the upper right corner and click on the "Options" button.
* Click "Advanced" and remove the check by "Only delete files in Windows temp folders older than 48 hours".
* Click OK
* Do not run CCleaner yet. You will run it later in safe mode.

go to this site and download these tools and once you get both
adaware Se 1.6 and spybot, update both of them.

Set adaware to do a full system scan and deselect, "search for neglible risk
entries". Click next to start the scan. Delete everything adaware finds.

reboot and now run spybot

Spybot: Search and destroy.

Delete what spybot finds marked in red. After updating spybot hit the

Dell XPS 1330 running windows vista 64 bit, 4 g ram, (supposed to be) 320 g harddrive

Oooooooooookkkaaaayy.... well. This is probably all my fault really. I thought I could fix stuff.... turns out I dont actually know what I'm doing and I think I may have made things worse....To start from the begining- In general, I have an issue with the hard drive... When I remove stuff, the hard drive adds gigabytes rather than removing them. It says something like '213 gbs out of 293' and and when I started I KNOW there was way more than that and I've uninstalled all the programs I added (Long story) and cleaned out the hidden files so I know for a fact there is nothing there to take up the space. I want my memory back, grrrar. Anyway...

So I was going through my control panel and deleting bloatware, you know stuff the laptop came with that I dont really need, trying to figure out the affor mentioned problem of memory adding instead of lessening and I removed this thing called 'Microsoft Games for Windows LIVE redistributeable' thinking Oh, thats just some app trying to get me to use games I dont need, lets get rid of it. BIG mistake. After that my games (Fallout 3 and oblivion, to be specific) had issues. Fallout wouldn't start, something about 'xlive.ddl' which I figured must have something to do with the microsoft games whatsit and oblivion seemed to be fine but I decided to uninstall it (just...don't ask....) and I started getting this error- setupdll/setupdll.cpp (390) PAPP:Oblivi...

Hi there,

This is my second computer that I am having problems with. This computer seemingly has more of an issue than my other computer in that I cannot run the GMER program at all, I can't run the DDS application (it freezes my computer everytime). The only thing I can do is run the defogger.

There is some kind of worm/virus/malware that is causing my system to run inefficiently and with such poor performance as the computer just started acting up. I checked my PC usage and it was at 100% which is extrememly abnormal. Also anytime I open internet explorer, it freezes and has to be shut down and reopened, just for the same thing to happen. (Same with Chrome)

I don't know what to do since the DDS freezes everytime I try to run it, the black screen appearing to be working but never producing any logs and freezing the computer....and the GMER isn't working either. I am typing this from my other computer because the infected PC has the above mentioned browser/internet issues.

I ran antimalware bytes and it said there were no infections found, I'll include the log, also I have AVG2011 for my antivirus. It is noteworthy to say that the desktop Icons are present but do NOT work, I can't click them half the time...I'll have to use the start, computer etc. buttons to get to use the shortcuts.

Please post ANY help, it is greatly appreciated.

Five days ago, when I turned on my Dell Latitude running Windows 7 Professional, the upgrade screen came on and said I had 144 updates, not to shut down computer until completed. So I didn't. When it was done it shut down. Then when I turned on it went to a screen that says load Windows normally or Use repair tool. I chose load windows normally. The system went through the normal boot but then went back to the screen that says load normal or use repair tool. I chose repair tool this time. This time it said that it could not find windows.
I reset the bios to defaults for everything.
Reinstalled Windows 7. This worked for about a day. Everything seemed to be ok. So I shut down the computer until the next day. When I turned it on it went to the 144 updates again and again I went through everything that I did before, again.
What is going on?
Does anyone have an answer?

A:Windows 7 Professional issues

I would start with manually managing the updates--install 1-5 of them at a time.
Also, avoid the driver updates from M$ and instead get third party updates directly from the hardware manufacturer (e.g., video drivers--ATI/Nvidia).

A while back I had some weird nonsense occur due to a .NET update causing my systems to take a VERY long time to bootup. It took me days to figure it out by process of elimination.

Hope that helps...

I don't know the real difference between professional and just regular windows xp, but I am sure the regular is fine since thats what I am used to. How would I go about either fixing the issues with mine or better yet taking windows xp off here and installing regular windows on this pc. thank you very much in advance for any help.

I recently installed a WD 250 IDE HDD in my system and installed Windows XP Pro using my installation disk. Everything was going fine until last week. My system would not boot into Windows. Yet when I was finally able to get past whatever problem that was causing the startup issue, Then when Windows starts (or I think so), there are four small rectangles randomly placed over the monitor screen with numbers and an omega sign.
I am able to get to the Recovery Console via the installation CD and have used CHKDSK /r (no issues were reported). Then I used the bootcfg /rebuild command to restructure the boot.ini file. Still nothing.
I have a Spotmau Boot Recovery CD and I'm able to get this program to run but still cannot get Windows to bootup or load even after using the Windows Recovery program. The last time I used the MBR Restore program on this Spotmau BootSuite disk it seemed to messed things up more than it corrected.

If you can't solve the problems, then I would Format your "C" Drive, and reinstall Windopes. Once that is done, I would use Norton Ghost to make an image of your "C" Drive in another partition, so if this kind of crap arises again, you can restore your "C" Drive using Norton Ghost.

I recently bought a new USB keyboard and sound card. My motherboard currently has an onboard sound card that I no longer wanted to use due to quality. I installed everything and the drivers associated with the new hardware.

I tried to go into BIOS to change the setting so that the computer would not choose the onboard sound and that it would use the card that I bought. When I tried to go into BIOS, my keyboard does not work. Is there a way to get the USB drivers to load during post so that a USB keyboard is recognized before the OS loads? If I use a PS/2 keyboard then I'm able to get into BIOS, but I would like to be able to do this with my USB keyboard.

I've just completed a website which works fine on several browser/platform combinations that I've tested. However, I've just heard that:

"There are some problems with the site functions using dell laptop and pc computers with the windows xp professional program."

The problems include:
- When trying to use the email link, a screen comes up asking to make outlook the default mail client; if no is clicked, then a 'host can't be found' message comes up.
- When the graphic links are scrolled over on any page, the homepage is the only page the "onMouseOver" graphics show up (these graphics that should appear are javascripted to appear in their own div, not swap with the original moused-over graphic).
- A pdf file (to open in a new window) doesn't come up when clicked.

Are there some known issues with Windows XP Professional or with Internet Explorer that you know about which might be causing these problems?

The javascripting that seems to be totally not working is basically switching between visible and hidden for the divs where the show/hide images are to appear and swapping them in from one mouseover to another.

Here's a sample mouseover:

<a href="" onMouseOver="showHide('studio','visible');document.studioSwap.src=Image13.src;" onMouseOut="showHide('studio','hidden')"><div id="bgt-01-02"></div></a>

I have a Dell Vostro 220s that shipped with Vista in 2009. I purchased the 'Reinstallation DVD Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-Bit' with a product key and used it to upgrade from Vista to Windows 7 approx 2 years ago. We have a new laptop now, we've copied all our important files onto the laptop and I would like to do a clean reinstall of Windows 7 on the Vostro.

I went into the boot menu and set it up to boot from the DVD drive and then rebooted with the 'Reinstallation DVD Windows 7 Professional SP1 64-Bit' DVD in the DVD drive. It acts like it wants to read the DVD drive but then boots from the HD. Once rebooted, I can click on the setup.exe on the DVD drive and after selecting English it goes to a Not Responding state. Also, after rebooting if I insert the Windows DVD into the DVD drive and then choose to run setup.exe from the pop up, I get the same 'Not Responding' after choosing English and yes to allow windows to make changes to my PC. Anyone have any ideas what is wrong?

Hi all, first post here - Please don't think i'm trying to do anything unsavoury (Since this IS my first post), but i've got a bit of a problem.

I recently was able to acquire an older computer from my company - With Windows XP Professional. They said that I could have it on the condition that the IT department were allowed to decommission it first, which they did, so that wasn't a problem.

The problem comes when the Admin didn't disable to password login. Since it isn't connected to the network any more, so my current password won't work, and the Guest login is disabled. Now, obviously they won't give me the current Admin password (Which I assume is the same as the one for every computer on my work network), so i'm a little stuck!

When I boot it in Safe Mode, none of the tricks i've read seem to work. Even when I select "Boot In Safe Mode With Command Prompt", the Command Prompt won't open, it's just the login screen with Safe Mode - So I can't use that to get around the startup. Also, since the system came from the company, I don't have the startup disk for the windows system either.

Is my only course of action tracking down a copy of a boot disk and installing it over the top? Or is there another trick I haven't tried yet?

A:Windows XP Professional - Password Issues.

We have no clue if you are up to something unsavory or not, so due to Forum Rules we cannot assist you with Password retrieval or circumvention.
Boot into Safe Mode, here you have the choice of booting into the user account or the Built In Administrator account. If you don't know the password, leave it blank. If during the decommissioning, the IT dept didn't reset the Admin password to blank, then you have to take it back to them and have them reset it.
This thread is now closed.

I am using Windows 7 Prof since 2008 but since last 1 month I am having the blue screen issue and has now become frequent. To recover any corrupted files etc., I formatted the HDD and reinstalled the Windows 7 from scratch but still the Blue Screen issue have not resolved.

Just to highlight that I have not installed any new hardware. Attached are the dump files created as per the instructions on BSOD Instructions page.

Another point which I want to highlight Performance Report says that there is no Antivirus installed but I have the AV installed and the same I am using since 2008 without any issue. It seems like Win7 only understands those popular brands in AV.

A:BSOD Issues in Windows 7 Professional

Stop 0x124 is a hardware error.... if you are overclocking try resetting your processor to standard settings and see if that helps ... if you continue to get BSOD here are some more things you may want to consider ..

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try

A "stop 0x124" is fundamentally different to many other types of bluescreens because it stems from a hardware complaint. Stop 0x124 minidumps contain very little practical information, and it is therefore necessary to approach the problem as a case of hardware in an unknown state of distress.
Generic "Stop 0x124" Troubleshooting Strategy:
1) Ensure that none of the hardware components are overclocked. Hardware that is driven beyond its design specifications - by overclocking - can malfunction in unpredictable ways.

2) Ensure that the machine is adequately cooled. If there is any doubt, open up the side of the PC case (be mindful of any relevant warranty conditions!) and point a mains fan squarely at the motherboard. That will rule out most (lack of) cooling issues.

3) Update all hardware-related drivers: video, sound, RAID (if any), NIC... anything that interacts with a piece of hardware. It is good practice to run the latest drivers anyway.

4) Update the motherboard BIOS according to the manufacturer's instructions. Their website should provide detailed instructions as to the brand and model-specific procedure.

5) Rarely, bugs in the OS may cause "... Read more

I have a new Windows 7 Professional 32 bit computer that the printers are not pushing out to. We have a Windows Server 2003 R2 server with print management that deploys printers to all the work stations. The new Windows 7 Professional computer will not always get the printers. When first set up and signed on as a administrator the printers deployed. The users then did not get the printers and cannot add a printer manually. When signed back on as an administrator I found that the printers that originally deployed had disappeared. Whenever trying to add a printer manually I get a message saying the printer services are not started and that it needs to be restarted. When I go into services I find that the print services is started/running, so I'll restart it, reboot the computer and usually find that the printers deployed again for the administrator. The first time I did this the printers then deploy for users, but not all the printers (some are missing) in all cases. A short time later, maybe a day or 2 the printers will disappear again, getting the same messages if you try adding a printer manually and finding the print services still running/started. Not every time I do the restart of print services and rebooting the computer will resolve the issue though. Sometimes that has to be done a couple of times for it to work but still will only resolve the issue for a short time and the printers will disappear again. Print services is set for automatic.

Print Spooler is such a pain in the ***. I cannot wait for technology to improve when it comes to printers. Working in IT for a large company, printers and their drivers are about 40% of our problems.

Try this first:
- Stop the Print Spool service.
- Head to C:\Windows\System32\Spool\PRINTERS
- Delete anything in this folder.
- Restart print spooler.
- Check Printers

If still an issue:
- Head to Admin Tools in the CP.
- Go to Print Management
- Drop Down Print Servers > (Your Server) > Drivers
- Delete any Drivers listed that are actually drivers, do not delete others (eg: Microsoft XPS Document Writer)
- Click on the Printers now and delete any actual printers listed.
- Reboot the PC.
- Login make take a bit this time but see if the printers appear.
NOTE: Printers/Drivers might give you an error trying to delete it saying it is in use, if so, follow the below steps:

If all of this STILL does NOT work, do:

Okay, About three months ago, I got hacked HARD...permissions were changed, administrator rights were removed from my administrator accounts, etc. i was flabbergasted. THe iactually didn't bother me though until I ran a MBAM scan and found 133 viruses and spyware instances on my drive (NOT including tracking cookies!). I cleaned and recleaned, using MBAM, SuperantiSpyware, Avira, running each one in safe mode first, then loading into my normal account and running them, and finally erasing my user account and creating a new one. But even after the new user account was created with Administrator privileges, I still routinely received virus and Malware threat warnign flags from MBAM and Avira. Eventually, Avira and MBAM were disabled and Avira was "deleted" (Windows will not uninstall because the setup.exe file has been 'Changed" and won't reinstall it because I don't have "Administrator privileges" on my Administrator accounts!) even though at startup I receive an error message saying that Avira has been corrupted. The most telling issue is that antivirus and spyware/Malware scans come up clean on Safe mode scans, but using my normal account, the machine reboots. Using Superantispyware I notice that it's always during the memory test that this occurs (and in Safe Mode, it passes through this section with no issue).

Hello, I am trying to attempt a factory reset on a Windows XP Professional Dell Latitude D600. Unfortunately, the computer was previously owned by another company and has a login which I do not know the username/password to. The laptop does NOT have a CD drive and I am using a USB drive to attempt to fix the laptop. If the factory reset does not work, I will be trying to install Ubuntu. I do not have a Windows disk to repair/reset the computer.
On startup (without any other bootup USB drives), it would allow me to access the login screen but I would not be able to get through as I do not know the password/username. I have already tried using Ophcrack (no users would show when loaded), Offline NT Password & Registry Editor (no Windows installation was found), and Trinity Rescue Kit (no Windows installation was found). I have also tried to install Ubuntu with no success. I have tried to use Crtl + F11 / F11 to access a "System Restore" which did not work during startup. (Dell does not have this feature on some of its older laptops, not sure.)
Key Information:
- Windows XP Professional
- Dell Latitude D600
- Unknown password/username
- Password recovery software failed to work
- Failed to install Ubuntu, other programs failed to see hard drive as valid Windows installation (despite loading up as Windows normally)
- Factory reset option unable to be reached from boot menu

If you are wanting to dual boot, choose the partition you want to install on early in the installation . .after you have booted from the XP CD.

I came across Dell's Precision workstations because they advertised heavily on their integration with Adobe productions. I've owned the Adobe Master suite CS4 collection for some time now and use Adobe Premiere for editing my videos. For the most part it's been working great.
However, I recently purchased a Nikon D5500 camera to shoot videos and have had trouble editing my footage when importing into premiere. The timeline is very choppy and laggy which is suprising giving hte fact I had my computer designed for this very purpose. I always configure my sequences to match video footage to ensure smooth editing and the problems still persists.
One work around I found was importing these files into Any Video Converter and converting them to mp4's and then bringing them into premiere. However this method is time consuming and i would like to be able to just shoot from my camera and import them directly into premiere pro cs4.

Hello there.
I recently bought Microsoft Office 2007 on eBay. It came in the mail today. When I put the disc into my computer, nothing happens. I cannot hear the disc running. Nothing is prompted on the screen and when I look in "my computer" it does not show anything other than what's normally there. I guess I am asking for help trying to figure out how to download this program onto my computer as I just started college classes and already have assignments due and cannot complete them without it. 
Please be gently, as I know to some this may seem basic. Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

A:Microsoft Office Professional 2007 download issues.

First of all - welcome to BC !
There are two possibilities here. The first, and less worrying, is your optical drive may have died and gone to a better place. Can you read any other software disc or play a movie DVD ? If you can, your drive is working. If you can't, then it is almost certainly your drive.
The Office disc may be faulty or fake. Try it in a different computer to see if it can be read or offers to install itself. If it can neither be read nor offers to install on a different computer then your only hope of redress is to take it up with first the supplier and then the eBay complaints procedure.
Sorry I can't be more optimistic on your first visit to BC.

My problems are with Javascript and Flash (kind of).

I have just finished a completely fresh install of Windows 7 Professional x64. I have installed every Windows update available, main hardware drivers (motherboard/chipset/storage (nForce), graphics driver (nVidia), sound driver (Creative), latest Java version, latest Flash versions (including IE), and my browser of choice (Comodo Dragon). I have also tried using vanilla Firefox, IE9 (32 & 64-bit) + changing various settings, Comodo IceDragon, and Google Chrome. I have also tried running a 'regsvr32' command for jscript.dll & vbscript.dll (with elevation) to no avail. This is completely mind-blowing and sickeningly frustrating at the same time - especially because it's a fresh install.

YouTube video playback works fine, however:
-- Video thumbnails don't show (maybe a Javascript problem)

When I go to the page to check if Flash is installed, the video won't play unless I go to Control Panel > Flash > Advanced > Delete Cache. Then it only works intermittently (if at all).
Also tried disabling hardware acceleration (even though my hardware has never had a problem with it before) and increasing storage space for sites.

Anything to do with this just doesn't work at all.

One day I pulled the game Overwatch and it gave me the same error message 6 times before starting the game.

I reinstalled the game and that changed nothing. Then one day I decided to turn back to my all time favorite games ARK: Survival Evolved, and this same message came up, however, this time is crashed my computer and gave me a blue screen. The file or issue it said it was having was by BEDaisy.sys. I looked up solutions to this and that with no luck.

(Dying Light - reason I mention the name of the games being that it might have something to do with the ram capacity needed on ARK vs the other games). I would really love to get to the bottom of this, thank you in advance!

I received a computer that my uncle, who works in the field, built that uses windows XP plus. When I turned it on for the first time it went through the normal boot up process but all it shows is a distorted wallpaper and won't do anything but when I press ctrl alt delete it restarts.

Distorted in what way? Can you post a snapshot?
Will it boot in safe mode? Press the F8 key repeatedly when you first power on the computer until the advanced options menu displays. Select safe mode.
I'd update the display drivers or at least reinstall the current display drivers.
What is the RAM chip configuration? Are they stock RAM chips that came with the motherboard?

Hello Everyone,
Ever since I took my computer to the local computer store to get fixed it's had more problems. It was brand new and only needed a new hard drive...when i got it back it needed a new power switch, mother board, and memory card. At least that's what he said, all of that was checked before being sent in and none had a problem. I've since refused to take it back to another repair guy...it reminded me too much of the stereotypical car repair man who rips women off.
So the last 2 days I've found myself at a new problem...I hit the power and the power button flashes a second then turns off. So I reach behind the computer and flip the psu off completely for about 20 secs and turn it back on. After doing that the computer starts up, however it starts up slowly...
I'm wondering if it's the motherboard or the psu...anybody have a problem like this before or maybe someone knows how to help?
Please and thank you very much!

This "repaired" computer may not be setup properly.You could still have a bad power supply or motherboard. Do you see any yellow exclamation marks in the Device Manager?
