Asus Computer Blue Screen, then windows fail to boot up

Q: Asus Computer Blue Screen, then windows fail to boot up

Hey

So I am sorry for not having more information about my computer...seeing as I cant access windows anymore I have no idea what CPU, memory, etc this laptop has.

Anyway. So what happened today was I stated my computer it was fine and all of a sudden it went to blue screen.

This has happened before, but usually the computer restarts and it works fine.

Now at first i restart the computer and it says reboot and select the proper boot device so I restart hit f2 and selected what was my primary hard drive which is ST9750423AS.

Anyway i selected that and the computer wouldnt start. It went to the windows logo and would not start. After it went to blue screen again and restarted and prompted me to launch startup repair. Which i did then.

Startup repair found no solution and asked me to send this to microsoft, i did that as well.

After this I tried system restore...wouldnt work i get an error saying it cant find the file. Anything i try with repairs give the same result and so i restarted my computer again.

It wont get past the windows logo and when i hit f2 again...my ST9705423AS wasnt there anymore...i got scared and was thinking this is it all my files are gone and my hard drive is dead. However after numerous reboots...now it showed up again!

Alas i have no idea what to do next. I have tried all the options I knew but now this is as far as my computer savyness goes. And I know it isnt that far to begin with.

And I also tried safe mode, all the options that arise when you hit f8. And not one of them worked. My issue is simply, I cant get into windows.

When I try system restore the error message is 0x80070003.

I.e my computer cant recognize my boot device i suppose?

Also now that it recognizes my boot device again...when i try and start windows it goes into asus recovery mode and tries to reboot my entire computer. If i had a recovery disk and a windows 7 which...seeing as its a bought laptop i dont have.

Also i dont really want to do that since my computer was working fine this morning. And i have important files that I need so any help would be awesome...

Preferred Solution: Asus Computer Blue Screen, then windows fail to boot up

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Asus Computer Blue Screen, then windows fail to boot up

Hi,

Can you access the Advanced boot options?

Advanced Boot Options
Choose Last known Good Configuration



Tip
Use the up-arrow and down-arrow keys to move the menu’s highlight to Last Known Good Configuration (Advanced), and then press Enter as the mouse won’t work at this screen.


Your computer should load successfully, and Windows 7 will discard the bad configuration and return permanently to the last known good configuration.

If it doesnt boot normally, you’ll want to get a System Repair Disk and try going back to the last System Restore Point (You may have to use a friends computer)

Hope this helps

cheers

KB article for this error (may/may not apply to your situation): "STOP: 0x0000006B" Stop error message during startup on a computer that is running Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

Also, FYI, we've had an issue at work where the system was missing the smss.exe file (this was on XP systems and was caused by the McAfee command line scanner). I would suggest using the command prompt in the Startup Repair menu to replace system files - but unfortunately I can't say which one's are needed.

You may also try running sfc.exe /scannow from the command prompt - it may/may not help.

Hi everyone! My parents have a windows 7 Asus pc (I believe home premium) and when started it goes to the black screen stating that it was shut down incorrectly and gives you the option of running startup repair or starting windows normally. When starting windows normally is chosen it appears to begin starting as normal and then goes to a blank blue screen (of death?) with a black border on the left and bottom sides. I'm not much more computer savvy than they are and have no idea what the problem is or where to start. What does this mean?

Hi,

Are you experiencing a BSOD? Like this?:

As the result of low blood sugar, lack of sleep and any other excuse that I can find, I wiped out the windows partition on my laptop while, trying to install Linux Mint as a dual boot. The end result was that Linux used the entire drive for it's install. I blame it on the selfish Linux install not wanting to share.

I was unhappy with the results of being just smart enough to screw up my system so, I dug out the system restore USB stick that I created when I first got the machine. I booted from it and selected the Reset your system option.

It took about 2 hours to do something. After it was done I removed the flash drive and rebooted, or not. I got a black screen with the message to insert boot-able media and press any key.

I popped the Linux DVD into the drive and booted to Linux Mint Live. I then took a look at the hard drive and saw that it appeared that all the windows files and folders had been restored however, booting into windows is not happening.

Help?

My old asus laptop, running Windows Vista, has taken a turn for the worse. I recently started using it again due to my newer one being away for repairs. Unfortunately I forgot about some issues I had with this one that have recently resulted in the bluscreen memory dump. It happens randomly and I think part of the issue was the RAM. I removed the sticks and with one it worked just a bit slow and with the other the computer wouldn't even start up. So I left that one out. It was still slow however so I went into msconfig and disabled all of the programs that turn on at startup. This increased the laptops speed and all was well for about four hours. I left while a game was patching, the new Rift game which i paid extra to be able to play on release but havnt been able to, and upon my return there was blue screen.

That is my predicament. I know its a lot to read but I didn't want to leave anything out. Thanks in advance for any help you may be able to give.

Hello there,

My windows XP installation will not boot, and no error message is shown. Asus booting screen is shown though, and I can even access the file system if using windows XP installation CD.

I tried recovery mode, done 'chkdsk', done 'fixboot', even went as far as copying repair registry files from c:/windows/repair to c:/windows/system32/config .

Nothing helps.

Prior to the problem I deleted the Alcohol120% program, but It wouldn't let me delete it in a standard way, so I deleted it from the drive and then from the registry(what I always do if simple uninstall is not working).

After that I tried sptd from DuplexSecure, but It did not give me the possibility to choose uninstall, it just installed and asked me to restart my machine. After the restart, the problem occured.

I am the same guy as here BSODs for different reasons , I was trying to fix my bluescreens, and this happened.

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

I have been having a number of issues with my laptop. These include

1. On startup the computer will take between 10 and 20 minutes to load up and be usable which is considerably longer than the time it used to take when it would be 1/2 minutes max.
2. I have had a number of blue screens on the computer (in the last two weeks this has probably happened 15/20 times). One of the messages that I have seen is DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR-EQUAL.
3. When using the computer there have been periods where it has frozen and been unusable for 5/10 minutes and then worked fine again after this.

I originally thought that this was caused by a virus or something similar so I visited the Virus/Trojan/Spyware forum on this site and I have worked together with Ried from that area to check the computer. He has recomended that I come to this section of the site as he has now run all checks on my computer and ruled out malware / rootkits as being present on the computer.

I have attached the information as requested - I hope! I tried to run the perfmon /report as requested but it gave the message that the system cannot find the path specified.

Is it at least showing the BIOS screen, the first one you see when it turns on? If your screen stays blank when it turns on or if i doesn't even say its on when you start it then a piece of hardware in it is dead, something important like the mother board or power supply or ram.

My computer wont boot up. When I try to start it, I always get the blue screen of death. It does this whether I let it start normally, in safe mode, with the last known good settings or whatever. I also tried booting from the XP CD-Rom, but that had the same results. The error message on the blue screen I am getting says Page_Fault_in_Nonpaged_area and that the problems seems to be caused by NDIS.sys. Under technical info, it says my stop code is 0x00000050 (0x87000000, 0x00000000, 0xF722C9BD, 0x00000000). It also says NDIS.sys - Address F722C9BD base at F722C000, datestamp 4b72911a. Ive look around at a few web sites, and they said to check the RAM (physically) and it looks ok to me. I can get into the F2 and F12 screens when the computer first powers up, and the F2 screen recognizes my RAM, so I guess thats ok. I think the problem is software related though. THe last time it was working, I turned off the power switch because it looked like I was getting attacked by viruses (lots of popup, my programs running slower, stuff like that and I think my computer was reporting it had trapped a few trojans that were trying cause problems). I would have liked to go in and use system restore, but I cant even get to the point where that's an option (in WIndows - is there another way?) What should I do, how do I fix this?

What did you do when you checked the RAM? You need to unclip and remove the RAM chips and then reinsert them, making sure they lock into place. Give them a little rocking movement to make sure they are properly seated. If that doesn't solve the problem then it MAY be a corrupt XP file. In that case boot from your XP CD and do a repair install.

After actively using my computer pretty much all day so far, I just restarted, and it won't boot up past the XP splash screen. It won't boot in any mode, with any options. The blue screen prompt says "unmountable_boot_volume" and rather than diagnosing this myself on google, this seems like a pretty serious problem I'd like to get some actual feedback on. For some additional information, the computer is a Dell, less than 3 years old, and hasn't had any problems with BSoD in the past. Thanks in advance for replies.
 

A:Computer won't boot, only blue screen of death.

This behavior can occur if either of the following conditions is true:

Your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and the following conditions are true:
You use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive to the controller instead of the required 80-wire, 40-pin cable.
The basic input/output system (BIOS) settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes.

The file system is damaged and cannot be mounted.
The purpose of this error message is to prevent the following two things:

Potential data loss caused by using an incorrect IDE cable for the faster UDMA modes. An IDE cable is a kind of cable used to connect storage devices, such as hard disks, inside a computer.
Continued access to a drive on which the file system is damaged
Method 1: Repair the volume

Note the second parameter (0xbbbbbbbb) in the error message. You might have to regenerate the error in order to write it down.

If the second parameter (0xbbbbbbbb) of the Stop error is 0xC0000032, the cause of the error is that the file system is damaged. You can try to repair the volume to see whether this resolves the error. If the second parameter is not 0xC0000032, see "Method 2: Check the IDE cable and load Fail-Safe settings" for help.Some things that you should know before you try this solution

If the file system is damaged, you can use chkdsk /r command to repair the volume. However, if you use the chkdsk /r command, you may lose some data.

If this is the first time youve seen this Stop error screen, restart yourcomputer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory option such as caching or shadowing. If you need to up Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Option, and then select Safe Mode.

Well, first backup your data using an Ubuntu Live CD to a flash drive. Then if this is a Dell, boot the computer and press the F12 key and do the Dell Diagnostics. Or Boot off of the XP CD Or download the Recovery Console ISO. Burn it to CD with IMGBurn and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.

A family member was on Facebook and clicked on an interesting looking link. This took him to a porn site, filled up the task bar with items, then the computer became unresponsive and the screen went black. {I couldn't get any more detail from him.} He restarted the computer, a Dell Dimension E520 with Windows XP Pro.

First, the black/white screen says 'floppy diskette seek failure' message. (Computer never had a floppy drive.) From there we tried evey option to reboot, from 'safe mode' to 'last known good config'. Each resulted in blue screen of death. The stop messages are either 0x00000024 or 0x0000007B. I read some articles about disabling the floppy in the setup, so I turned it off. Now, I no longer get that message. However, I still get a blue screen of death.

Next, I inserted the reinstallation CD that came with the computer, and selected to boot from CD. The CD drive is being accessed, then I get a screen that apologizes for the inconvenience, but Windows wasn't able to start up. When I choose any of the options presented, I get a blue screen with a stop 0x00000024 error.

I ran the hardware diagnostics, and the hard dirve passes with no errors. Also, there are no beeping sounds at all while it boots up.

What else can I do next?

And that's it. I called Geek Squad, and it is their impression that something did not download correctly and it corrupted my OS. Instead of rushing to them, giving them my computer, and shelling out a lot of dough, I went into Safe Mode on my computer, which comes up just fine. I backed up all the files I wanted to, or at least backed up all I could on what USB drives I have.

My next plans of attack are Error Check, and if that does not work, System Restore to a date prior to when I spotted the problem; that is, to a date when I know it was still working. I am unfamiliar with how these two, Error Check and System Restore, work; however, they have been recommended to me. I would really like to get my computer running again without having to hand it over to anyone to have it fixed, if at all possible.

So is Error Check, then System Restore, a good idea? If so, could anyone give me any guidance about them? Also, if you have any other suggestions, please let me know! I would be forever grateful!

Hello, I am new to these forums and I have just a little bit of knowledge about computers. Hopefully enough that I can follow instructions! I think this is the correct forum as my issues started after some sort of bot was detected on my computer, so I think that something has infected my computer.

Here is the situation:
Computer: Dell Dimension 3100 from 2006 running Windows XP Media Center Edition
AVG (free version) and RU Botted (Trend Micro) both run on this computer. I also have MBAM downloaded and do occasional scans with it, as well as SpyBot Search & Destroy.

Yesterday afternoon while web-browsing in IE I got a small pop-up in the lower right corner, from RU Botted indicating that a Bot had been detected. It said the BOT could not be removed. It all happened fast so I did not catch the name of the Bot. All programs open on my computer began to shut down. I panicked and here is where I did something that probably did not help - instead of letting the computer finish shutting itself down I just hit the power button to instantly turn it off.

I can now no longer get my computer up and running. Upon starting I get the Dell screen (and can get into the Set-Up or Boot menus) and then I get a black screen with the choices of how to start my computer (Safe Mode, Safe w/Networking, Safe Mode w/Command Prompt, Last Known Good Config, and Start Windows Normally).

Please tell us if you have your original Windows CD/DVD available.If you are unable to perform the steps we have recommended please try one more time and if unsuccessful alert us of such and we will design an alternate means of obtaining the necessary information.Once we start working together, please reply back within 3 days or this thread may be closed so we can help others who are waiting. If you will be unable to respond (e.g. vacation, travel, etc.), please let me know ahead of time.Please refrain from running tools or applying updates other than those we suggest while we are cleaning up your computer. The reason for this is so we know what is going on with the machine at any time. Some programs can interfere with others and hamper the recovery process. Please also continue to work with me until I give you the all clear. Even if your computer appears to act better, you may still be infected.It sounds likely that you have a backdoor rootkit that infected the Master Boot Record. We can hopefully recover. Do you have a clean computer and an empty USB flash drive? We can create a bootable environment to boot the infected computer from the USB flash drive and work through the error; or at least access your files.

Hi,

I have ran numerous scans and looked at other forums. I can boot my computer but only if I tap F10 repeatedly before the animation of windows comes up, a black screen shows up and says something about partition two and to boot up I have to delete /MININT then press enter and my computer starts normally after that. My computer will not boot any other way than this way.
I have found TDSS on my computer, but a lot of scans are starting to say my computer is clean, yet I can't boot it up.

Hello,

I have had this issue for about a week now. My Windows XP computer will not start in normal mode. The computer turns on like it should, taking me to the login page with the listed accounts. I sign in under my account. My computer then goes to a blank blue screen with only my cursor showing. The hard drive continues working for a couple minutes after turning blue, then stops. I can move the mouse and use Ctrl+alt+del, but that's about it. It's a pure blue screen. This is NOT the blue screen of death... it's a much lighter blue - the same blue that you'd see as the default background of the login screen.

I would appreciate any advice you could give me. The computer can boot in safe mode (which is what I'm using right now), but will not start at all in normal mode. I suspect a certain process that should be running is not functional. Any ideas?

I would REALLY appreciate any help you guys could give me.

I have a Gateway with 32 bit OS, and Vista SP2 installed.

My mom recently installed a program to watch videos, but it was useless to her and she uninstalled it. Day after, I was browsing the internet and the computer froze and became completely unresponsive. Couldn't even get the task manager open, so I had to force it to shut down.

Tried to turn it back on, and got a black screen that said no boot device found. then no boot file received. Tried to run Mbytes because I thought maybe she might have picked up a virus, and left the computer. Twenty minutes later I came back and it had restarted for no apparent reason. Tried again, and got a BSOD halfway, error x000007. Every other restart failed, saying that no boot file had been received.

Did system restore, which seemed to fix the problem temporarily. Tried to run SuperAntiSpyware, and computer restarted... again. Windows suggested I reinstall an Intel processor driver that was missing. Did, but later that night got the BSOD again, halfway through an Mbytes scan.

This had not happened before, I'm kind of at a loss. I ran Diskcheck, which fixed a few bad clusters, etc. I'm having a hard time thinking this could be a malware problem, except for the random restarts while I'm scanning for viruses.

I am at my wits end with this problem.
 
On and off, for the past several weeks, my HP desktop computer has been exhibiting a strange bug where no programs will open. Clicking a link on a taskbar, desktop, or Start menu shows the related program opening onto the taskbar briefly and fading out with no explanation. This computer has multiple accounts, and each account (except for mine) will run perfectly normally during this time. Additionally, attempts to fix it previously have utterly failed, and rebooting the computer had the possibility of a blue screen when Windows started up. In the past, this issue has appeared without cause and resolved itself after several hours of inactivity.
 
This time, though, it seems a little worse. Every other time I reboot my computer, I can guarantee a blue screen will appear on startup saying that crucial files have been affected. The next time I do, there is no blue screen, but my account will have the typical issue. If I run startup repair, I get a 10 minute wait before it says it simply cannot do anything to fix my computer and leaves it at that.
 
I can run the computer in safe mode, which is what I'm doing now. My first instinct was to run MalwareBytes and CCleaner, but neither found or identified anything worthwhile.
