Blank screen on normal startup and BSOD after safe mode scan...

Q: Blank screen on normal startup and BSOD after safe mode scan...

Hey guys. The problem first began when i was using google chrome and my laptop just hung and went completely unresponsive. When i force shutdown and restarted it started fine but the next time i opened chrome it hung again. This time the restart in normal mode just went from the windows logo to a blank screen. When i stared in safe mode and ran my avg command line scanner it found 106 infections but wasnt clear on its actions against it. Whenever i run this scan i can start it on normal mode again and seems to function normally but clicking on chrome brings back those problems. when i tried using firefox it slowed down and went unresponsive too. After a few days of normal usage i started getting BSODs quite frequently (usually a few minutes after normal startup and desktop access...and today after happening twice in normal mode ive only been able to see my screen in safe mode. the command line scanner brings the same results. Cant seem to do a boot time scan with avast as it just goes from the windows logo to blank screen. Any advice?

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.)

First I'd like to apologize in advance if my grammar and typing suck; currently on my iPad since I have no pc at the moment.

Computer info from what I can remember:
Dell XPS 210 running XP media edition sp2(Before said problem below)
3 gigs RAM
500 gig HD
1.8Ghtz intel 2
ATI Radeon x1300 pro

So today after I got home from class I decided to install MS Office 2010. Went for it but an error message popped up telling me I needed to be running sp3(I know it's been a while since I updated). So I do that and say "whatahell ill upload my video drivers too"(hadn't done this n a while too). The sp3 update goes smoothly as far as I can tell but the driver update shoots an error near the end. I'm seriously sorry but I can't remember exactly what it said since its been like 4 hours since this occurred. Anyways I press ok and the video driver update just let's me know I need to restart my pc as well as the sp3 update (no they weren't done at the same time. I did the sp3 first and waited for it to finish before staring the video drive update.).

Before doing this, a bad ache in my stomach came up in my stomach and reminded to make a recovery point in case **** hits the fan. Why do I say bad ache? Some 5 years ago, at separate occasions, a windows update ended in a bsod and a video driver update in the same shoes. They both caused massive data lost and a full reinstall action

So I make the recovery point and restart. Dell logo shows up then... Read more

I've heard somewhere that ATI drivers need to be removed from hardware before installing new drivers. I don't do this. Could this be the problem? Is it fixable?

Hi, All of a sudden a day before, my computer froze and when restarted it started exhibiting horrendous symptoms-1. windows logo appear,then2. blank screen and no cursor login etc nothing display just sits thereAfter that, I tried to do startup repair but failed.Coming over to Safe Mode it is working fine.I also tried bunch of repairs from there still nothingused the clean boot from msconfig to see if any software causing issue or conflicts and did a system restore, still nothing.checked device manager and there is no exclamation point either that may depict hardware failure.My recent activity-installed "Advanced System care 9" 2 days back but have now removed using safe mode.1 more point it has been a month since my primary HDD is showing SMART error.but if safe mode is working can't we get normal mode backup and running.Please help me out of this conundrum, Any help would be sincerely appreciated.possible options I have in my mind-1.get new HDD and reinstall os2.format existing HDD and install fresh copy but doubt if this issue might returnreadily looking out for other options and would prefer rectifying old one first so that I can avoid a long tedious process of reinstalling everything from scratch.Sincere thanks to any responses.

Yesterday I ran Malware Bytes and McAfee because I started to get random pop-ups when I normally do not. Both programs showed no problems. I also cleaned the disk space, which had not been done in a while. This morning, all icons were missing from the screen--it was just a blank black screen, so I shut down by pressing the power button. When I turned the laptop back on and I try to boot in Normal and Safe mode, it will not do so. With Normal mode, it goes to a blank black screen and does not even go to the "Windows Loading" screen. For Safe mode, it begins to list a bunch of drivers, etc, but it seems to get stuck with only half the screen filled with the list and will not move past that point.

I wish I could install HijackThis and run it as it has worked for me in the past, but I cannot even get my laptop to load.

I do not have an XP installation disc, but do have the Recovery Console on my boot up menu. I have tried running ChkDsk, FixMBR, FixBoot but to no avail.

Help!

I had this machine built just over a year ago, and only had occasional crashes (no particular activities seemed to generate the issue). About 2 months ago the crashes became more persistent, and upon restarting the machine would have trouble loading normal mode. At the screen that reads "welcome" the spinning wheel would simply freeze, and the computer would lock up. As this problem persisted the computer would either automatically reboot itself each time, or crash into a BSOD and run a dump. I can, however, start it in Safe Mode without issue.

It had been running the same install of windows 7 ultimate x64 until a couple of weeks ago when I attempted to reinstall. This solved nothing, so I reinstalled again, this time deleting the partitions and formatting the drive. Again, the problems persist. I'm inclined to think they're hardware related at this point, but I'm in no way an expert.

I have recently used Driver Genius to update some drivers and had a power outage while installing the video card drivers. After the power was restored I could not boot normally (it would go blank after the loading screen goes away before the log on screen comes up.) So I boot into safe mode and install the drivers there, and then restart. It worked after about 12 tries.... Now, it will not load normally at all anymore.
While checking the system error logs, I find that (from 9/26/09 - 9/27/09) I am missing quite a few catalog files in the "system32\CatRoot\{F750E6C3-38EE-11D1-85E5-00C04FC295EE}" directory. I also have many DCOM errors...

See "SysErrors.txt" in attachments
I have also ran chkdsk with many errors (I assume they are)

See "ChkDskOutput.txt" in attachments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's another possible culprit... Leftover video card drivers.... While I thought that my nVidia card somehow fried when the power went out, I put my ATI card in and tried to install the drivers for it, but to no avail... Oddly enough, the only way I could get it to work was by manually installing the drivers. While doing an automated install, I received the error message "Severe: Setup did not find a driver compatible with your current hardware or operating system. Setup will now exit."

What could be wrong???

After a windows update patch about 3-4 weeks ago I started getting a weird error message saying I wasn't connected to the internet when the router is working for phones, blu rays, etc. Letting IE run its own 'fix' would say something about it not having a valid ip address and it reset the lan card and that would sometimes fix it or sometimes not (and I would need to reboot and try again). I did a system restore to a point before the windows update which fixed the issue for a couple days until the update pushed again and after that I get bsod screens on boot with the iqrl_not_less_or_equal more than 50% of boot attempts but no longer have the inexplicable unconnection to the internet. I've got a factory computer which I've not altered or opened in the 4-5 years I've had it. It boots fine in safe mode every time so far.

Please help, I'm way over my head trying to figure this out on my own and 4 hours of conversations with Microsoft tech support convinced me they should really just be called support plan sales reps.

Hello, I'm hoping someone would be able to help me resolve this so that I can avoid having to reinstall Windows. Here's the situation: my laptop suddenly cannot boot up anymore; it usually hangs when the "Please wait..." dialog shows up with the text "Windows is starting up...", but sometimes it goes as far as the login prompt, then hangs after I enter my credentials and press Enter. When it hangs I cannot even move my mouse cursor. I can only think of two things I did out of the ordinary that created this mess:
I installed the driver for the Turtle Beach AudioAdvantage Micro USB stick audio card before my PC started hanging. However, after I installed the driver I was forced to reboot, and my computer rebooted just fine.
I closed my laptop's lid to put it in sleep mode while MyDefrag (formerly JkDefrag) was running. I have done this in the past without any issues, but this time when I exited sleep mode my computer was hanging, so I forced a reboot. This trouble started after I rebooted.

I am able to boot up in Safe Mode, but not Safe Mode with Networking, which leads me to think that maybe some network related drivers got corrupted. Some more info on my setup:
I have Windows XP Pro SP3 installed (v5.1.2600)
I have Avira AntiVir and Comodo Firewall installed

Okay i got a virus some how dont know how that really isnt relevant surpisingly.
i noticed it because avg picked it up and i then qaurentined it.
afterwards i used Four diff AV programs just to verify it precense.
All three found it in the exact same place under the same name and all that.
so i rebooted in safe mode, and proceeded to delete it.

I deleted the actual file, which was annoying like usual...
i had to right click on the .dll and go to the properties and remove all the permissions.
Very pety and frustrating... anyways after i deleted them,

I ran the same Four AV programs and they picked up nothing.
then i ran a specific scan with avg, only in the "system volume information folder"
i would have deleted it from there it manually, but it take like an hour,
to go through all the CMD crap, and changing variables, anyways..
it picked it up in there as i hoped it would, i then deleted it from there

afterwards i defragged my whole machine to make sure there wasnt pieces of it anywhere
after the defragging was done, i scanned again w/same 4 AV programs & found nothing
OBVIOUSLY it was gone lol.
i rebooted the system and let it boot up normal this time

Now when I boot, my monitor recieves "no signal" from the PC. The PC boots fine except I cannot see anything. This means that I cannot format my PC because I can't see what I'm doing.
Right now I am in safe mode with network connection and I would like to know if I can format in safe mode, and how do I do this. Thanks in advance.

This isn't the type of problem you solve by reinstalling, except as a last resort.

Have you updated or reinstalled your Display driver in Device Manager? Let us know the exact device make and model and the driver version date and number you are running. If there isn't a newer one, uninstall the current one in Device Manager and reboot the PC.

To check for the driver Win7 wants, enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3)
then Check For Windows Updates and install all Important and Optional Updates as there may also be performance patches needed for your display.

Otherwise check for the latest driver on the PC or Display device model's Support Downloads webpage.

It would be best if you choose to reinstall to boot the Win7 installation Media to Clean Install Windows 7. Let us know if this method works.

Hello everyone,

I have a Dell Inspiron with Windows 7 Home 64-bit. Here's the problem, that just started out of the blue: During startup, I get the Dell screen and the Windows logo. It gets to the point where I see the cursor (just before it should get to the logon screen), and the screen goes black. The laptop is still on, but nothing shows up.

Also.....if I try to enter Safe Mode, I can get to the logon screen. I can either click on one of the user icons and get into Windows, or I can leave it at the logon screen.....either way, the computer shows a BSOD death and then restarts. The BSOD shows a 0x0000001E code.

I haven't done too much troubleshooting, but here's what I have done: Ran startup repair from the Win 7 DVD. Used that DVD to get to Command Prompt and ran CHKDSK. If it's not a hardware issue, I'm hoping not to install from scratch or restore to an earlier date. There are some very recent files that would be gone that I really need! I've read some things about editing 7's equivalent of boot.ini, but have no idea if that's the fix.

Anyway.....thanks so much for taking the time read this. I look forward to hearing from you. If you need any more info, please let me know.

Thanks!!

A:Black screen during 7 startup....restart with BSOD in Safe Mode

Get into Startup Repair and run it 3 times.
If that doesn't fix it, then open up a Command Prompt from the Startup Repair disk and type (one at a time, and then press Enter):

bootrec /fixboot
bootrec /fixmbr
bootrec /rebuildbcd

Press ENTER after each command and see what that does for you.

The problem here is that you can't boot to Safe Mode - so it's most likely a driver that loads early in the boot sequence.
There are ways to fix this, but you've gotta get into Windows to do most of it.
I'd suggest that you either boot to a Linux/Ultimate Boot CD and copy your data off - or that you slave the hard drive to another system and copy the data off that way.

Once that's done, you can freely experiment without the worry of losing your data.

When the system BSOD's, please get this info (the stuff in RED) from the screen:

After a little digging this system is using a trendnet TEW-441PI wireless adapter. I had him download the drivers to a thumbdrive, copy them to the system and install them. The installation wizard fails because of an issue with windows installer service(We searched for the error, and found another helpful post from this forum), this seems to stem from the fact that the Windows Installer service is not running(According to msconfig services tab).

I had him try to start the service using: "net start MSIServer" on an elevated command prompt, but it fails saying that the service cannot be started in safe mode.

To make sure this process had been going smoothly, I was watching over his shoulder through a hangout session from the other machine, and I can confirm that no safe mode prompt appeared, and the startup appeared as normal as any boot.

After additional searching, I found vaguely similar issues that were resolved either by selecting normal startup under the general tab(his system already had normal start selected), and by unchecking the "safe boot" box in the boot tab(which was a... Read more

A:Windows 7 is in safe mode, even though it's using normal startup.

It is normal for many Services to be stopped as WIn7 sets most to Manual on fast triggers which is the key improvement that makes it lightweight and the best Windows yet. And you do want all msconfig>Startup and >Services (after Hiding All MS Services) disabled except a lightweight AV like MSE or Avast, no more.

What I would do is plug in the ethernet cable which may well load its driver and get connected so you can troubleshoot hands-on the wireless adapter. If it doesn't load the driver then enable Automatically get recommended drivers and updates for your hardware (Step 3) to check again. If problems persist getting connected right click the System Tray Connection Icon to Troubleshoot both adapters which will identify the problem.

Once online run all rounds of Important and Optional Windows Updates with reboots so that WIn7 has the drivers it wants, all performance and security patches are in place.

If Win7 won't run an Aero theme from Control Panel>Personalize type Aero in Start Search box to run the troubleshooter to find out why. The most I'd edit Visual Effects on low resource machines is to disable animations, sliding, fading, dragging intact and selection rectangle from the Visual Effects shown in Optimize Windows 7 - Windows 7 Forums

Hi, I've been having some issues with a very sudden slow startup after removing some viruses from my computer. I'm running windows XP with media edition 2005 SP2 and sources of this startup issue may be related to the following other issues I have found:

1.) Cryptographic service error 1068: dependency issues

2.) Missing taskbar (managed to fix this error somehow, although there is still no taskbar showing in safemode)

3.) Attempts to download windows updates fails due to crpytographic service error (clearly due to issue 1)

4.) System Restore is very buggy and unuasable

5.) Cannot copy/paste files anywhere

6.) In Administration Tools cannot adjust startup properties of any services

7.) Cannot enter Help and Support by any means

8.) Search Companion does not work

9.) Computer does not read printer or USB audio headset anymore

I've found solutions to similar problems here and there while browing help forums but all have been to no avail! Any input would be greatly appreciated

Your PC might still be infected. So please post a topic in the security forum, and explain ur problem, and post a HiJackThis log there. An expert will guide you then.

Meahwhile, you can scan with antivirus(which i think u did), and some good antispywares. Some antispywares are SuperAntispyware, Malwarebytes Antimalware, Spyware Doctor Starter Edition. Download them, update them and run scans. Hope ur PC will be rid of virus/spywares.

I'm running Windows 8.1x64. I booted to safe mode today by changing the boot options in msconfig.exe. Now, msconfig won't let me change back to Normal startup, and I'm stuck in safe mode. When I check the Normal Startup box under the General Tab in msconfig and hit OK, I receive this message:

"System Configuration cannot save the original boot configuration for later restoration. Boot changes will be reverted.

"The system cannot find the file specified."

No file is specified.

I've booted to safe mode on other occasions but never have experienced this problem. Windows 8.1 has been running normally with no problems. The reason I went into safe mode is that a non-bootable drive has disappeared from Explorer and I wanted to see if it showed up in Safe Mode.

The posters there disabled MSE 4.9 in Safe Mode by unticking a brand-new setting in the UI (Administrator > Turn on this app). Another method of escaping this situation would be to restore your system to a point before the update was installed, then hide the update in Windows Update. That would allow you to resume using MSE 4.8 if you wish.
 
I am extremely curious why this happens to many but not all MSE users running Vista. If more advanced forum members ask you for further information, I hope you will cooperate. Above all, I wonder if any other security software with real-time protection is installed (or perhaps improperly uninstalled)? Of course there is a possibility that your issue is something else...

Your crash dumps are not showing any finite probable cause. In such a situation, it is better to enable Driver Verifier to monitor the drivers.
Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
Run Driver Verifier for 24 hours or the occurrence of the next crash, whichever is earlier.



   Information
Why Driver Verifier:
It puts a stress on the drivers, ans so it makes the unstable drivers crash. Hopefully the driver that crashes is recorded in the memory dump.

How Can we know that DV is enabled:
It will make the system bit of slow, laggy.



   Warning
Before enabling DV, make it sure that you have earlier System restore points made in your computer. You can check it easily by using CCleaner looking at Tools > System Restore.

If there is no points, make a System Restore Point manually before enabling DV.



   Tip

If you fail to get on the Desktop because of DV, Boot into Advanced Boot Options > Safe mode. Disable DV there. Now boot normally again, and try following the instruction of enabling DV again.

A:BSOD when trying to boot in normal mode, safe mode works fine

You may need to run SFC up to 3 times for it to have a chance to repair all files.

If it won't then you can consider a Repair Install.

However be aware that factory preinstalled Win7 is one of the worst possible installs of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilties that intefere with better versions built into Win7. So I would strongly consider doing the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If you decide to try to repair you can also capture the BSOD file and post it up for one of our BSOD analysts as shown here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums

My computer was running slow with the HD churning away, so I ran the anti-ware (Malwarebytes and Trend Micro) and found no infections.

Then I ran defrag, but had only 5% free space, so I deleted and moved files and got to 15%, but defrag runs for 10 minutes and declares itself done, but it looks like only about 20% of the drive is getting defragged and the rest is badly fragmented.

I ran CCleaner, chkdsk /r & /f, and went to run defrag in safe mode only to find trying to boot in safe mode causes the dreaded BSoD! But WinXP SP3 runs fine in normal mode!

Stop: 0X00000007E (0XC0000005, 0X80537009, 0XF7C5E3E0, 0XF7C5E0DC)

No hardware changes in more than a year, the last time I ran in safe mode was a couple of months ago to get rid of a nasty Trojan.

So, why will defrag not finish? Why does safe mode cause the BSoD?

FWIW:clearing up the HD space had reduced the HD churn.

I ran chkdsk /r in the recovery console and System File Checker, with no apparent change.

Hey guys, I seem to be having trouble, and I'm not terribly inclined with laptops and computers, mine is an HP G62 laptop, and that's about as far as I know about it. The other day I went to use it, opened it up, I had 3 tabs open (google chrome), and I tried to open a new tab. All new tabs were freezing, and my itunes had frozen as well. I tried closing the laptop, hoping it would go into sleep mode, but it didn't, it stayed running. I reopened it and the screen stayed off, so I did a hard reset (holding the power button to turn it off) and started it back up. I started it in normal mode, and logged on, but after loading from the log on screen, it went to a black screen with just the cursor, and stayed there. I did another hard reset, and started it in safe mode, and now this is how I'm currently running. I've tried disabling the display drivers and restarting, that worked momentarily, but froze shortly after. Next, I tried a system restore, which did absolutely nothing, and then I ran chkdsk and, again, nothing. After all this, I decided to try uninstalling the display drivers, which, once again, did nothing. This seems to be all the info I have gathered from online, and through friends' help, there seems to be nothing left to do that may fix this problem. Anyone have any idea on where to go from here?

A:Black Screen in Normal Mode. Only Safe Mode Works.

Hello ericberard,

 

You?re having a problem with the computer going to a black screen.

 

First test the hardware.


Turn off the computer

As you power it back on, tap the F2 key. This will load hardware diagnostics.

Once the screen loads run the startup test.
 

If this is windows 7 and the startup test pass.


Power back off the computer.

As you power it back on, tap the F8 key. This will load Advanced Boot Options.

Select Last Known Good Configuration.
 

This will take the system back to when everything was working correctly.

 

Clicking the White Kudos star on the left is a way to say Thanks!

 

Let me know how everything goes.

Have a good day.

Recently purchased this all in one PC on second hand. It initially had Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit Japanese OS. I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit English OS after purchasing and installed the Drivers from the DVD which came along with the PC. Ran windows update till date. But got BSOD many times. Thinking of Hard drive issue, changed the hard disk first time with another used one and next time with newly purchased one.

All the time installed Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bit English OS and installed the Drivers from the DVD which came along with the PC. Ran windows update till date. But in all 3 hard disks getting the BSOD error.

Installed Microsoft Security Essentials each time and checked for virus. Ran Dell Diagnostics downloaded from Dell website and found no issues.

Got "Session "Microsoft Security Client OOBE" stopped due to the following error: 0xC000000D" error on Event viewer many times. After searching some forums deleted MSE.

Ran the SF diagnotic utility and uploading the file for your reference.

Please help me to overcome this issue.

A:BSOD in Normal mode but works fine in Safe mode

Attachment in the first thread gauti2009.zip is SF Diagnostic Tool run in Safe mode.
Attachment in the current thread SF_02-09-2013.rar is SF Diagnostic Tool run in Normal mode. (Somehow no BSOD during this short time, able to get the file and post it).

Hope this will help.
