During Windows Loading, BSOD flashes then restarts computer

Q: During Windows Loading, BSOD flashes then restarts computer

While my friend was playing Dead Island, my computer started to get laggy, then shut off randomly. When I tried to reboot it, it would freeze after a successful POST. I have since been able to get it all the way to the Windows loading screen. Once it starts loading windows, a BSOD flashes for just a second and then my computer restarts.

Any help provided will be much appreciated.

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

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

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

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 which one 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.

The computer has been shutting off on its own lately and then today it just turned off and then i tried restarting it again and a blue screen flashes real quick and the computer restarts....i dont know what to do?

A:blue screen flashes then computer restarts

Welcome to TSF!

Start (or restart) the PC, then start tapping the F8 key about twice a second.
(Some PCs use F8 for other options, in that case try F5. On some Multimedia keyboards you may have to hold a separate Function key down so the Fx keys will not be seen as media keys)

The following Menu should appear:
Windows Advanced Options Menu
Please select an option:Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Enable Boot Logging
Enable VGA Mode
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Debugging Mode
Disable automatic restart on system failure
Start Windows Normally
Reboot
Return to OS Choices Menu
Use the up and down arrow keys to move the highlight to your choice.
Choose the option in Blue. This will cause it (hopefully) to stop on the error so you can read it.
Post the Technical Information Section towards the bottom, usually a *** STOP 0x12345678 number, followed by 4 more numbers in parentheses.
The next line may mention a file name.
You will have to use the power button to turn the system off.

Also try these in this order:
Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked)
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Directory Services Restore Mode (Windows domain controllers only)
Safe Mode with Command Prompt

Hello,

I've been working on my computer for days and am dizzy with all the circles I've been going around in.

I'm using an Intel Pentium III processor, 101GHz, 512 MB of RAM. I've got Windows XP Pro Version 2002, with SP3 added to it during this tumultuous time - thinking that might help the problem. And here is the problem:

A couple weeks ago, my computer would seem to boot up fine, but once it got to the desktop, it would flash on for 5 seconds then go black for 2 seconds, and it would repeat this cycle. Nothing would function and the screen would go a bit garbled around the taskbar, so I went into safe mode. (I don't know if it's relevant or not, but this problem started a few days after I tried to install my new modem with a cd from Telus.)

Safe mode worked fine & has continued to do so. I've run anti-spyware programs, but some won't download while in safe mode. I've run HijackThis & fixed what I thought was wrong by going to several sites & checking. I've cleaned the registry, startup list, and uninstall menu to the best of my ability using RegCleaner 4.3, and for a brief time was able to boot up in normal mode. I received some error messages: "Display Settings: Your computer's screen resolution and color depth are currently set to a very low level...(sorry, that's all I wrote down on that one...the rest of the message just said to fix it)", as well as one saying that my computer has recovered fro... Read more

A:Screen flashes on reboot, then computer restarts

Hi samuryan,

This might be a hardware problem. Did you complete the installation of Telus? Did you try uninstalling it if it was installed?

Have you trie to return your computer to an earlier restore point which precedes the installation of the modem and goes back to when you knew your computer was working the way it should? If you can reset the restore point, I would try that first (sorry, all your efforts at cleaning will be reversed). Sometimes in installing new software, a conflict can arise which can most easily be reversed by simply going back to before the conflict occured.

Please try the following:

If you've never done this before, Go to Start / All Programs / Accessories / System Tools / System Restore
check the box to Restore my computer to an earlier time and click on Next. You'll see a calendar with highlighted dates. Choose one of the dates just preceeding these problems and allow your system to return to that date. See if the problem goes away.
If the problem is still there, go through the above steps again to arrive at system restore, and check the option to reverse the change you made.

Were you able to do this?

On my personally built desktop I recently encountered a problem where my computer restarts when loading windows. More specifically, when I power on my PC it first sends me to the screen where you see, "we apologize for the inconvenience...windows did not start sucessfully...recent hardware or software changes may have caused this." it then gives you the five options: Start windows normally, Start windows with last known good configuration, safe mode, safe mode with cmd prompt, and safe mode with networking.

When I choose either of the first two it begins to start windows but then suddenly restarts and goes back to the previously mentioned screen. Wash. Rinse. Repeat. If I choose any of the three safe mode options I can watch as it loads the required system files for windows. They speed along for about three seconds and then stop on a file and then the computer restarts itself again. All three stop on the same file, "multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)/WINDOWS/system32/Drivers/agp440.sys" I am assuming when I choose the non-safe mode options it is restarting on the sae file even though I can't see it happen.

Usually when a computer does something of this nature it can be because of a few things, power, cooling, or possibly a virus. I calculated for my sysrem how much power it needed and by my estimations it's ok. All my fans are spinning so I don't think it's cooling. I recently reformatted to RAID 0 but I install and...

A:Computer Restarts itself when loading Windows

I don't think this is of help but I'm having the exact same problem. I just got a new motherboard and p4 2.66 processor but it does this exact same thing. Although after the lines of partition stuff you mention I'll get a flash of a windows xp screen then a flash of a blue screen. F5 or F4 brought up a screen that gave me a choice of not restarting on errors. The screen says to check the disk, controller, or for viruses. Now I know there's nothing wrong with the hard drive cause I'm using it right now (reinstalled old motherboard etc). The only thing I can think of is the controller on the new mobo is bad. But I'm lurking to see if there's any bright ideas coming. It has occured to me that my power supply isn't up to the new mobo I'm only running a 300 watt ( have a 550w sitting here waiting to fix this problem first).

Hi everyone. Okay, as the title says, I cannot get my computer past the Windows loading screen.I tried in safe mode, taking out one stick of RAM, switching the sticks around, anything I thought would work and nothing.I had recently gotten rid completely of AntivirusPro 2009 and could finally download AVG.After downloading it, I did a full scan and it found roughly 6 viruses.The one virus that I thought was odd was winlogon.exe, obviously you can't delete that and I'm pretty sure AVG has no access to delete that either.But anyways, after all that happened, I had to restart my computer as AVG instructed, thus starting the endless cycle of restarting after the windows loading screen.If you have any tips or suggestions, please let me know.

Not sure what the problem is. Basically, for a long while now, whenever I restarted my computer or sometimes turned it off, the computer seems to fail to get past "loading" the floppy disk, and as a result is on, but there is no display or anything.

Today I went on my computer in the morning, right clicked on MSN messenger, and it shut off. Now, whenever it gets past the Windows loading screens (this goes for Safe Mode as well), it simply restarts, and fails to load the floppy drive and there is no display. I have to manually turn the power off on the back of the computer, wait a little, and then power it back on, but it's always the same deal. My operating system is Windows XP Professional.

What should I do? What can the problem be?

hey anyone have any idea why this may be?
im trying to boot up my computer using an ATA drive. I normally boot using SATA drive but it currently wont boot as it is stuck in the middle of a windows xp setup that fails to complete everytime (it locks up at 2minutes remaining).
im using an ATA drive to load windows so i can copy the files off of the SATA drive to back it up so that i can reformat the SATA drive.

for some reason every time i go to load windows on the ATA drive, it goes to the 'do you want to load last known good config" screen and no matter what i pick, the computer reboots.

why would it do this?
i've tried unplugging all drive except the ATA and it did nothing

im running windows xp pro sp2 on the SATA drive
windows xp pro (and tried a windows 98) ATA drive
Asus k8v SE Deluxe mother board
2gb ram
amd 3400+ processor

A:ATA drive restarts computer instead of loading windows.

What is on this ATA drive? You said that you normally use the SATA drive. So, where did this ATA come from?

i tried, putting a xp installation cd in but i cant seem to boot from it.

PLEASE ADVISE, THANKS

A:after windows xp loading screen computer restarts!!

This is what we refer to as the blue screen of death unfortuinately that usually means something bad. First off try booting to the xp cd and doing repair and when you log into the windows it asks for usually number one iwth a blank admin password at the command prompt type chkdsk /r and run that until it says no errors and then try to boot again. If that doesnt work let me know and we can try other things.

Hi

Suddenly having serious problems with my computer.

Has been working fine for months but when I turned it on yesterday I started having problems.

The problem is that the computer starts to boot up fine, but when it reaches the Windows Loading screen it restarts the whole process of booting up again. This loop continues and does not stop.

Have tried starting the PC in safe more and all the other different modes but it doesnt make a difference.

Have also tried changing the boot order of the drives, no difference.

Unfortunatly I do not own a CD to re-boot or re-install the OS as the computer was passed onto my from a relative. They dont have the CD either.

Any help would be greatly appreciated as I have alot of photos and documents on the PC that I would like to get back!

Hi, so I woke up this morning and turned on my pc and it turned on then went to a screen that said, turn on pc in: safe mode, safe mode with networking, start windows normally, etc.

So I clicked on all of them and the result was the same, It took me to the windows XP loading screen were the blue bar at the bottom would begin to load and then it would just restart, it has been doing this all day.

I have been googling this issue all day but I do not know what to do.

Originally I presumed my power supply might be at fault since it seemed to be making lots of noises the past 4 months.
I have read that faulty RAM could also be the issue, I am currently running memtest86.
I have heard of people reformatting and the problem persisted.

Welcome to TSF....

Give this a try:

If you have a Full Operating System on CD then you can try this:

1. Configure the computer to start from the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive. For information about how to do this, see your computer documentation, or contact your computer manufacturer.
2. Insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into your CD-ROM or DVD-ROM drive, and then restart your computer.
3. When you receive the "Press any key to boot from CD" message, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD-ROM.
4. When you receive the "Welcome to Setup" message, press R to start the Recovery Console.
5. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you have to use from the Recovery Console.
6. When you are prompted, type the administrator password, and then press ENTER (if none was set, leave it blank and press ENTER).
7. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /list, and then press ENTER. The entries in your current Boot.ini file appear on the screen.
8. At the command prompt, type bootcfg /rebuild, and then press ENTER. This command scans the hard disks of the computer for Windows XP, Microsoft Windows 2000, or Microsoft Windows NT installations, and then displays the results. Follow the instructions that appear on the screen to add the Windows installations to the Boot.ini file. For example, follow these steps to add a Windows XP installation to the Boot.ini file:

Virtual ram would usually be 1.5-2x your physical memory, not nearly 20x!!
Alter your page file to the recommended setrtings and see if it makes a diff. Its probably slowing the pc down. Adding physical ram is the much better option

A:Windows booting fails when the BIOS flashes with new settings after loading a driver

Well you should always verify the drivers you download. But BIOS's are not updated or restored in the 'software' sense, they are flashed in the hardware sense. So, to 'restore' simply take the original BIOS and flash it again. You'll probably have to see if you can download the original BIOS from HP.

If your HDD is not detected at boot, WHILE BOOTING you will be prompted to hit F6 to install 3rd party SCSI drivers, hit F6 here. It will prompt you for a floppy containing the drivers for your disk. Make sure you have a floppy ready to go. Again HP will have the drivers on their site, if you do not have one ready.

My problem: Windows boots up, goes through the process of starting XP up (I get through the Windows XP screen where it gives the XP Logo and that blue 3 piece loading bar) next it begins to open the login screen but before that finishes my computer just restarts.

The registry changes that I made were from this thread:

Essentially, I have a CD image on the network (blue-shift.iso, which I DO OWN A COPY OF). When I try to mount it in my virtual drive, the computer crashes.

I've tried:
Nero ImageDrive
Dameon Tools

Moving the ISO to a linux machine.

Crashes on all programs and when using linux as the host.

Any ideas?

First of all, thanks in advance for any responses to this post. I?ve already researched this issue as best I could myself and have tried a few possible solutions with no luck. I?ll try to be very specific in describing my exact scenario as well as what I?ve already tried.

My computer restarts when loading newer games for example COD4, UT2k4 or L4D. It does not restart when loading older games for example Warcraft3:TFT, Diablo2 or AVP2. Everything seems to operate normally besides the restarts although the Windows startup loading screen may be slower. I couldn?t say for sure.

No matter which one I select, I get the same result. It goes to the loading screen, and a few seconds later the computer restarts. This continuously happens, and I am unable to use my computer.

Note: I heard that I can use the Windows XP CD to restore the settings. Unfortunately, I do not have a copy of it. Is there a way to burn a system restore CD?

Hi, I've had this problem for quite a long time now but thought I could let it slide off as an nvidia driver related problem and after some tests yesterday it seems it's something else.

Symptoms include either restarting immediately as the desktop taskbar items start to load or freezing after almost everything loaded and the hard drive light remains on.

The pattern I've noticed consists of a guaranteed reboot at the desktop if the computer is started after a shutdown, or after a BIOS save and exit or after a hard manual restart. Otherwise a normal restart shows no problems. Sometimes this problem at the desktop startup would happen after maybe 4 normal restarts, and the freezing may happen 1 in 8 restarts.

In safe mode this problem doesn't appear to happen. Got rid of any unnecessary startup items. I also don't get any error logs, no BSOD, tried turning Automatic Restart off, that didn't help either. Just continues to restart upon loading the desktop at the given times I've mentioned. This doesn't seem to be the same as most people's problems as I don't even have an error log to work with. Any help or info will be appreciated, thanks

Hey. So I play World of Warcraft and the other week there was a huge patch that was giving me a blue-screen error in certain zones in-game. Assuming it was a driver issue I updated my graphics driver and when that didn't work I installed the 40 or 50 Windows updates I had been ignoring over the past months and restarted. Still no luck so I downloaded Windows Vista Service Pack 2 and Realtek Ethernet Controller Driver (no clue why I downloaded that one, I don't even know what it does...) I read a thing about changing something in MSConfig, like a safe-boot for troubleshooting that just loads up the essential things on startup or something. I restart again and it's doing this loading thing and its progress is at like 5000/200000 after a minute or so, and being an impatient idiot, I do a hard shut down and power it back up. Here's what's been happening ever since:

1) Blue HP screen with Setup, Boot Menu, etc options
2) Screen goes black and flashes a few times for about 10 seconds total

Hi

I have a LG R500 running windows Vista home premium it was also the originally installed OS and came pre installed on the system and has never been re-installed.
I belive it is 32 bit and is almost 3 years old and is running the factory power supply LG 90 W.
Im not sure about the CPU, Video card, or the motherboard.

What is going on is when I turn the computer on the microsoft Corp loading screen comes on then the blue screen of death (or at least that what I think it is) flashes for a split second to fast to read it then I go straight to Windows Error Recovery screen. If you try to start it up normally again the same error occurs. I have launched the startup repair and it tells me Startup Repair cannot repair this computer automatically. So I have tried everything in the system recovery options except for the command prompt becasue I am unfamiliar with it. This error occurs in safe mode as well. I have not tried any of the other options except safe mode as I am unsure of them.

On another note I was having problems with the computer freezing prior to this but after a couple days of updating and virus scans I felt I had it fixed and seemed to be working properly for about a week. In this time windows was telling me I was having a problem with an intel driver and when I tried to download and intall the new driver as recomended by windows couldnt get it to work but seemed that the computer was fixed without it.

Try doing a System Restore from the System Recovery Options by booting a Windows 7 install DVD.

To Do a System Restore at Boot using System Recovery Options

Scroll down to OPTION TWO

If you do not have a Windows 7 installation DVD, you can download a legal copy with SP1 integrated from here:

Windows 7 Direct Download Links

Make sure you get the same version you have, Home Premium, Pro or Ultimate and 32 or 64 bit. Note that Basic or Starter is not available.

I recommend using ImgBurn at 4X speed (or the slowest available) to create the DVD from the downloaded .iso file.

You can do this on any computer capable of burning a DVD.

YOU MUST HAVE A VALID KEY TO INSTALL THIS .ISO. The one on the COA sticker on your computer will work.

You can also create a bootable USB Flash drive (4GB or larger) to install Windows 7 from.
Download and run Universal USB Installer ? Easy as 1 2 3
Select Windows 7 from the first drop down list, all the way to the bottom
Select the downloaded Windows 7 iso file
Select your USB flash drive
Click Create

For techies or folks who work on computers: Create Windows 7 Universal ISO With All Editions Selection On Install with ei.cfg Removal Utility.
This will fit on a 6GB flash drive or can be burned to a DVD.

I tried going into safe mode, but when I hit the logon screen, my comp would automatically restart after a few seconds. The seconds are random. Normal mode/startup worked fine. So I thought I could try using msconfig and had windows do safeboot with minimal .... That was a bad idea, since now my computer tries to always go into safe mode, and it always restarts at logon. I've managed to type in my password fast enough but it says it's incorrect, and then restarts a split second after. And I've also tried leaving it blank, but that was incorrect.

I've tried pushing f8 during boot up choosing "repair your computer". I tried automatic fix, but that didn't work. I didn't have any restore points or images, so I couldn't do either of those. I tried the memory diagnostic and nothing was wrong. I tried using the command prompt and tried finding and running msconfig.exe in system32, but it wasn't there.

After pushing f8, I've also tried selecting safe mode with command prompt, but it goes to the same logon screen, and then restarts. I've tried "last good configuration" and "disable automatic restart on system failure" or something like those, without any luck. I've also selected normal mode but since I've selected safeboot, that just goes into the safe mode logon and restarts.

A:computer restarts when loading safe mode logon screen

So after doing some searching, I thought I should try editing the boot.ini. I found out that windows 7 doesn't use boot.ini, but uses the boot loader program. I figured out that I had to use the command "bcdedit" in the command prompt. I found the word "safeboot" for one of the parameters in the list bcdedit provides. Then I took some time and learned how to change that. I learned I had to use the command "/deletevalue" and from there, I got my comp to go back to booting normally.

So last week I was on the interwebs and my computer froze. The mouse could move but that was it. No windows responded, nor did the start button, and ctrl alt delete didn't do anything. Then the screen started to blink about once every 2 seconds. It proceeded to do this until I forcibly turned off the computer by holding down the power button. I then turned on the computer again and the screen was glitchy. By this I mean icons on my desktop would disappear until I clicked on them (by which I mean clicked the empty spaces where the used to be) the start button and task bar would not reappear even if I hit the start button, and if I opened a window, it would show me the top half of the window and the bottom half would show the desktop (or lack thereof). Also my background picture was gone. I left it alone for a few days (I thought... maybe it overheated?) and it was working fine for the last two days. Then today it froze completely. No blinking screen, the mouse disappeared, and it just stayed like that until I turned off the computer. Then I turned it on and it worked for about twenty minutes. The screen blinked once, and then I got the BSoD, but it only flashed for a moment and then the computer rebooted. This has happened another two times in the last hour. I got a new harddrive a few months ago, but this is the first sign of any trouble I have had since it was installed by a friend.

Any suggestions?

My computer is running on a Windows 7 Home Premium OS, it's about two years old, Lenovo brand. I won the computer a while back, and do not have a Windows 7 Op. disk. The problem is, a while back I got this virus called Wolfram Antivirus software, and tried to do everything I could to remove it. It was a pain. The thing is, I think I might have accidentally deleted something in RegEdit, and now my computer (on the ultra rare occasion that it gets to and past the login screen) will tell me that it has encountered a critical error, and will restart in 1 minute.

When it does reboot, what will happen, is it will get to the picture of the swirling Windows symbol, but then reboot before making it to login screen. Then it will ask me to do a system repair or start up normally, because it shut down unusually. I'm currently attempting to fix it with a program called the Paragon Boot Corrector, but that doesn't seem to be working either. I'm running thin on patience, and I really don't want to have to buy a new laptop. Please help.

You probably dont need a new computer, however you are going to need an OS disk to do a repair install or clean install. If the computer came with win 7 there should be a serial number (5 groups of 5) on the bottom.

If you have a valid serial you can download an iso of the OS to burn to dvd.

In the past few weeks, my computer has been playing up... the screen will go black for a second or two at random intervals (most frequently after first logging in) and will occasionally restart the computer completely when this happens.

It is definitely not a problem with the screen itself, and I doubt it's a power surge problem, because even when the screen goes black, the little on/off lights stay on the screen and my speaker system, and they're all plugged in at the same point.

Any ideas? I've got no clue where to even start to fix this!

So, my computer is about 2.5 years old and I have been facing massive problems with flashplayer.

The issue is this: Whenever I run videos with my favorite drama's, the video player would then stop loading cause the whole screen to freeze whilst still being able to move my mouse. Then the computer would turn black and restart and tells me that I need to insert a new boot device or boot media in order to boot up my computer. So What is the problem here? I have downgraded flash player beta 12.0 to 11.9 and I have defrag my computer. Usually, mozilla firefox would tell me, the shockwave flashplayer plugin has crashed and allows me to refresh, but it has become so alarmingly frequent that every other video I view would result in me needing to Hard reset my computer by turning off the sockets.

Continued usage would cause me to freeze every half an hour of usage even after resetting. The question is am i overheating,something too? It all started when other programs im running concurrently with the video stopped responding and my computer keeps freezing before it restarts itself. I was running flash games that were downloaded.

How do I fix this?

A:Computer Restarts when Video Stops Loading/ Flash Player Crashes

first of all id try a non Beta version of flash. make sure its the x64 bit version and not the 32bit. For some unknown reason the automatic flash update always downloads the 32bit version for me..
Next id update all of you drivers (most important GPU and chipset) this will eliminate any driver conflicts that may pop up.

When I try booting my computer, it reaches the end of the "Windows XP Loading Screen" and it just restarts itself. I've tried multiple times, and always the same result. But when I tried booting to safe mode, it works fine (until I plugged in a flash drive, then it restarted). I have also tried booting to a Linux (Knoppix) disc and there were no issues there. I've taken the harddrive out and accessed it without issues using an external enclosure. I can access the files fine, but I can't boot to it.

I think it may be a problem with the harddrive itself, but the fact that I can boot to safe mode confuses me.
If anyone has any ideas, please help.
