system crashed twice

Q: system crashed twice

Im not sure what led to it- maybe a virus. The same events occured each time. Programs became very slow, mouse froze, became low on memory(~.5gb) so shut down the system and a couple of error windows came up saying to the effect that $something couldnt be saved. I wasnt saving any files that I knew of. Wouldnt reboot- wouldnt repair-reinstalled windws. the last time a bunch of mp3s were playing so checked all mp3s with AVG and Comodo AV as well as the entire system. Nothing found. This is getting old. but Im getting very fast at building the system Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: system crashed twice

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.)

I have first been getting these problems when I downloaded Comodo IS Pro. Apparently when I approached them for help,the technician did not reply to me after telling me to install.

Thus I did a system restore and the computer could load in normal mode(however the screen,etc loaded slow like hell.)

Yesterday, I downloaded comodo firewall and something familiar appeared

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

4X svchost.exe
1X lsm.exe
1X sandboxie.exe
1X wininit.exe

But guard32.dll from comodo is the module causing it according to Problem Reports and Solution, but anyone knows why and how to solve it?

A:Svchost crashed, windows start up crashed, local session manager crashed

Have you tried uninstalling Commodo to see if it is causing the problem?

hi all,

my win 7 pc crapped out. its not the disk. i have an image made on acronis. i bought a new win 10 pc. whats the easiest way to get that win 7 image with all my applications onto the new win 10 desktop? i want to get rid of windows 10. i would like my image working on new pc (new hardware) as i will not have to reinstall and configure everything again.

i tried swapping the old pc disk into the new pc, but the new pc would not boot: says invalid disk. could it have something to do with the MBR or that UEFI thing?

A:System crashed, how to restore Windows7 system image into new desktop

you're going to be in a world of pain if you want to do this but have no access to the old computer. In this situation, a SYSPREP with the generalize function is run in Windows 7 to prepare it for migration to new hardware.

You can try cold turkey like you did, you may have to switch to AHCI drivers from IDE or IDE to AHCI depending on what you had before to get it to boot. The boot sector may be a problem too. If you used standard MBR in the past then check your BIOS on the new PC to see what adjustment you can make.

Hiiiiiiiiii all

My XP.system have been crashed , I was doing some particular updates and when it done and reboot the system I can not log in to the XPsystem .

I have two systems in my device the other one is ubuntu , as we know when I turn on the device the system Give me a suggestions to select which system I want so I choose windows but the problem is the system again restart from it self and it still do that just with xp but it okay with linux , I think I need to delete the files of current updates but how can I log in to windows ?

- I can not reach to the welcome screen
- Safe mood as normal mood , which mean it still restart
- I lost the CD's of system

A:My XP.system have been crashed

From the Advanced Options Menu choose Disable automatic restart on system failure instead of Safe Mode.
Post the lines under the Technical Information section, the Stop code and any file names it mentions.

Do you know which updates you were installing?
If you were installing the KB977165 update, and have the version before MS added code to check for the presence of a rootkit, that could be the cause. Installing the update on an infected system causes blue screens or restarts.

Check the Windows partition for this folder:
WINDOWS\$NtUninstallKB977165$
If present, check in the spuninst subfolder for the spuninst.txt file

The spuninst.txt file contains the commands that the Recovery Console would use to uninstall the update. It's a list of Delete and Copy commands to delete the new files, and restore the old version. The last command makes a copy of the spuninst.txt file named spuninst.tag so that Windows Update will know it's been removed.

You can do each command from Ubuntu if you don't have an XP CD.
If you have access to a Vista/Win 7 DVD or can download one of the Vista/Win 7 Recovery Environment CDs, I have a batch file that can uninstall the update as well.

I have tried safe mode, did a dskchk with /f but didn't do anything

Unfortunately I have made no backup

Also, the windows came with the computer so I don't have any disks or anything

A:System crashed please help!!

I am no expert,but the same thing happened to me with my laptop in October. I called my computer manufacturer's tech service and we went through most of the F8 options and none of them worked except for the options under recovery manager: I had a choice of full factory recovery or recovery with automatic data backup and I chose recovery with automatic data backup. Because I chose recovery with backup,I retained all of my files. I don't know if your computer has that option or not. But,if all else fells you may be able to do that.

There are probably other things you can do first. Other people with more knowledge than me might have other suggestions,I'm sure.

Good Luck!

Later on I shut down the computer when a storm came through, and about an hour ago powered it back up. Windows will NOT boot up. It continued to recycle, and I am unable to get into SAFE mode, nor will it boot with the last known good settings. I tried "debugging mode", "disable automatic restart on system failure", and "safe mode with networking" (out of desperation), but nothing's working.

Early today my computer was perfect, then came the disater, I was informed that I needed to install SP1 (vista service pack 1). I did so, and towards the end of the process, it crashed my system, I mean a total, complete crash. There is no windows, no prompt, no curser, just a black screen. No matter how many times I turn my compter on and off, the same black screen is looking back at me. The microsoft website is not helping, they want to charge me to fix a problem caused by their system (dont get me wrong, happy to pay for service). Is there any way I can restore my system without inserting the start up disks again.

Added: While waiting for a reply I have decided that I would have to start over. However, my computer will not even read the discs to start over, there is just nothing. Just black. (3 years ago, I had to start over, it was simple,I just put the manufacturer disks in my disk drive, started the computer, and it wiped everything and started again). Any suggestions would be so much appreciated.

A:SP1 just crashed my system

Hi,

are you using a PC or laptop? When you turn the PC off then back on, do you see the POST screen, i.e. the manufacturer's logo and/or a series of checks denoted by white text on a black screen?

It could be that the PC isn't fully turning off and you're going straight back to the screen you're seeing. If that's the case, remove the power lead from the PC after turning off (or remove the laptop battery), wait 10 seconds then reconnect and power on.

First off, thanks to everyone ahead of time for helping me!

Alright, so I just moved to a new house and hooked my computer up to the internet for the first time on the new IP. I was on for just a few minutes when I got a "Send error report" saying that "the system has recovered from a serious error". When I go to click anything, I get the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!! Now it happens everytime within a couple of minutes when I load my desktop. Now I don't really think it has anything to do with a different IP or anything like that, but I've been messing around with other forums for days now and still haven't been able to fix this problem so I decided to jump in the forums and post my own thread and just hope I can get this fixed.

A:My system crashed, please help!

Hopefully the computer wasn't dropped when you moved from house to house. Also hopefully the computer was packed up right and didn't get banged around inside the truck or whatsover.

One thing you can do is to check the HDD for any errors. Go to the manufacturer's website of the hard-drive and download the latest diagnostics utility. Then put the program onto a CD, boot the computer to the CD, and test HDD for any errors. If there are any errors, then it's time to backup your files ASAP.

Another thing you can do is to perform a windows repair on your computer and hopefully windows repair will fix the problem.

Also try reseating computer parts. Reseat the videocard, cpu, and memory sticks and make sure they are on the motherboard tight.

You can also perform a check disk repair. Go into my computer and right click on the C: drive. Then choose properties and then click on the tools menu. Click on "check now" on the error-checking section and then make sure the two boxes are checked. Click on start and reboot your computer and let check repair do it's thing.

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

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

A:(OEM KEY PROBLEM) System crashed

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

To properly analyse and solve problems with Activation and Validation, we need to see a full copy of the report produced by the MGADiag tool

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

Now I dont know if spyware is that smart but anyway my desktop is worthless right now. It freezez before safe mode starts and I cant accomplish anything else.

Any suggestions please let me know., Thank you

A:I think spyware crashed my system

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



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

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

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

Hope it helps,

So, I did a stupid thing, deleted some files, and crashed my computer. I tried a safe reinstall of windows (which was not supposed to write over anything) but even after that I can get windows to install/run properly. It's windows XP. My question is, is there a way the I can hook up the broken system to another computer and simply copy the files off of it? I know the exact directories of the files I want to get. Or is this something I'd be better off taking it to the local best buy for? Or just call it a day and re-format?
Not really sure what other info to supply you with, haven't opened either system to see if there is an empty slot to hook up to.

We have Windows7 and an exterior drive backup. This exterior backup advised us this morning that a partition was full.

We tried to shut the system down - and it asked if we wanted to 'correct' something in the system (it said it was trying to decide). We opted to 'save' the changes and were prompted to reboot the system,

When the computer came back on - there was a white line across the middle of the screen, changed to black and the whole screen 'faded to black'.

Since then, we have tried a variety of things

We did ALT F10 - the system goes to Windows and the Ace restore menu

We did a system restore (NOT FULL)

Then we got

Error Code 1392 The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable

I SOOOOOOOOOO hope someone can give us a little direction to get this thing back up and running

One of the back up files says it was created in Sept 7 - and we cannot get into it. For some reason - the ongoing back up is not showing any more recent date than Sept

We DO NOT want to lose the data that hopefully is still in the computer

Any suggestions would really be appreciated - thank you

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

rebooted again with different BIOS setting and it goes through post , lists USB devices , PCI devices , IRQ settings and then stops after the last line where it says ACPI controller.

i went back in to BIOS and checked all boot priority settings , i tried to reinstall the operating system , but it goes through the windows installation dialogue , then stalls at the point where it says " Setup is starting wondows " and just hangs

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

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

My system crashed last night. Loading a heavy graphics MMORPG, the screen started stuttering and semi froze. It has happened before and I hard turn off computer and reboot and all is well. Not this time.
This time I went to the "boot in safe mode" or "last good settings" or "boot normally" screen.
None works. When I try to boot in safe mode, i get a string of lines and it stops.. then recycles. When I try to boot normally or at last good settings, I get the Windows booting screen with the horizontal scrolling then it turns off and starts the booting process again.

I went to CMOS and put on default safest mode and that didn't help.

Then I decided to reinstall Win XP 64 Pro, my OS. I set to boot first via CD drive and it starts the process and delivers me a blue screen with "Windows Setup" in the upper left hand corner of the screen but it proceeds no further. It just sits there and the CD stops spinning.

I put another HD in from an older computer with Win XP and it booted so I assume it's not related to the MB or CPU but I can't for the life of me figure out what to do next. If I can't boot in Safe Mode and if I can't reinstall Win XP64... I am out of ideas.
I am planning on buying a new HD and installing my OS in it if I can't come up with an alternative.

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

Dear All, 
I have ran into an issue. One of my windows machine has got crashed and we are getting a blank screen, already tried recovery options, refresh option, restore, etc., but it requires actual media disk which has been lost. So, practically, I don't have the

Could you please help me recovering the license key? How to recover the system without loosing license key? The installed version was Windows 8.1
Thank you in advance.

I tried to set up a dual boot system ( Vista Ultimate and Win 7 Pro) this aft and my computer he miraged and froze up.
Finally got it working again but I don't know how, just luck.
I followed the recommendations and made copy of Win 7 on ISO disk, I think it works but I'm not sure, and I unplugged the drive which has Vista on it and tried to boot. My computer froze solid even before it loaded OS file.
Why do I need to unplug my C: drive? Is that the only way to do a clean install?

A:Dualboot set up system crashed BIG time

To ad to the above post.
I have to do a clean install because you can't upgrade Vista Ultimate to Win 7 Pro.

Hi,

We have a graphics designer in our office who for the last two days has been experiencing problems which cause windows to freeze up and ultimately requires us to restart the PC. This is very problematic since the designers lose whatever has not been saved.

A:System error message - crashed PC

Have you looked for a patch for the program? Sometimes also Windows will have an update that will fix compatibility problems with certain software, but I think a patch for the program would be more likely. You may end up having to change some settings somewhere, but I don't know what that would be. Also make sure that your graphics/physics card has the latest stable drivers, as a last resort (I say last resort because sometimes earlier versions of a driver can work better with some programs than newer ones).

I went through the following Windows Setup, it indicated it was loading various files when finally I got to a set up screen and clicked on R for Recovery Console and thats when I received this message: The path or file specified is not valid next line was the following :\>

No C: drive was specified so I contacted you guys... please help

A:Re Directed then System (Computer) Crashed

Sounds like your hard drive may have failed.
Can you see your hard drive in the BIOS settings?
Is "AHCI" enabled in the BIOS?
Is you hard drive SATA?

If you can give me a little more info to go on, I might be able to point you in the right direction.

Even if your hard drive has failed or is failing, all is not lost...
Do not make any further changes to your hard drive until you can determine it's condition, otherwise it could make data recovery more difficult, if in fact this is a hardware failure.

I'd appreciate an opinion about what my local pc repair store has told me about my computer. I had a system built for me several years ago with two 300 gig ide hard drives in a raid configuration mirrored so that the data was backed up. I was running on Windows xp pro. When I checked properties on the c drive it showed I had 300 gigs. My computer crashed with a message saying "problem with array 1" The local pc repairman has told me that the hard drives are working fine, the raid controller is fine, but the raid system for unknown reasons crashed causing all data to be lost. He says the system read that it was a striped array, not mirrored, and that one drive has nothing on it and the other drive has only partial data, and all the data has been lost. He said the cause of the raid crash could have been a virus or improper shut down. When I told him that, indeed, his store had set up the raid as a mirrored raid, he said perhaps it was mirrored and it just reads as striped because of the damage. I don't know whether to believe him or not. Fortunately I have an external backup for most of my data. I'd appreciate any feedback.
 

A:Solved: Raid has crashed my system?

RAID is not a backup system, any form of it is vulnerable to failure and data loss, especially if it was RAID-0(stripping). All that RAID-1(mirroring) is good for is a hard drive failure and little to no down time - as in a server environment. It's completely useless for virus, and operating system crash, or most other things and best not used in the home. Why your setup failed, its hard to say, but I wouldn't rely on RAID-1 as a backup. You'd be better off using the second drive as an external backup and use imaging software to occasionally clone the full main drive to an image on the external drive.
