Q: 6 month old Dell Laptop - Blue screen of death and browser hijacks

Greetings all.My relatively new Dell laptop has been infected with browser hijacks on Firefox ( my main browser ) and now, IE. Google Chrome has not been affected. In the last few days, I also have had the dreaded Blue Screen of Death.I have used HiJackThis before on my old PC.I see a few suspicious entries in here, but you're the experts.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Logfile of Trend Micro HijackThis v2.0.2Scan saved at 4:52:02 PM, on 05/10/2009Platform: Windows Vista SP2 (WinNT 6.00.1906)MSIE: Internet Explorer v8.00 (8.00.6001.18813)Boot mode: NormalRunning processes:C:\Windows\system32\taskeng.exeC:\Windows\system32\Dwm.exeC:\Windows\Explorer.EXEC:\Program Files\Windows Defender\MSASCui.exeC:\Program Files\DellTPad\Apoint.exeC:\Windows\System32\WLTRAY.EXEC:\Program Files\Dell Webcam\Dell Webcam Central\WebcamDell.exeC:\Program Files\Dell Support Center\bin\sprtcmd.exeC:\Program Files\AVG\AVG8\avgtray.exeC:\Program Files\BOINC\boinctray.exeC:\Windows\vsnpstd3.exeC:\Program Files\CyberLink\PCM4Everio\EverioService.exeC:\Program Files\IDT\WDM\sttray.exeC:\Program Files\Java\jre6\bin\jusched.exeC:\Windows\System32\hkcmd.exeC:\Windows\System32\igfxpers.exeC:\Windows\ehome\ehtray.exeC:\Program Files\Spybot -

Preferred Solution: 6 month old Dell Laptop - Blue screen of death and browser hijacks

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.)

A:Blue screen of death on a Dell laptop

Hi hkopene019057

My name is Anrick ,I work for the Dell social media and community
You have mentioned that it usually occurs when you are playing a game, so I would suspect the problem to be related to your Video drivers or the video card itself
First thing you can try is updating the Video driver from our support site ( www.support.dell.com) selecting the correct model of the system.

In order to help you better with the issue I would like you to answer to these questions
1. When usually these blue screens occur?
2. Do u get an error code or error message if yes what is the code/message?

The Blue Screen of Death (also known as the BSOD) is a screen that Windows shows you when it shuts down your computer in order to prevent damage to it. It's also known as a STOP error or as a BugCheck Code. It is a hardware error by definition - but this doesn't mean that it's caused by faulty hardware. Viruses, corrupt drivers, and even poorly written programs can cause it.

How to Find BSOD (Blue Screen) Error Messages: follow this link
How To Find Bsod Error Messages

3. What happens after the blue screen, do you have to restart the system, it restarts itself or it comes back up normally?

I have a cheap dell laptop inspiron 15 3531 with windows 10 installed. Last night I got repeated blue screens, there was at least three or four different ones. The two that I managed to write down were; bad system config info and IRQL not less or equal. It said it needed to restart but every time it did it came up with another blue screen and then it restarted a final time and nothing came on the screen at all. I tried to restart it manually, but again nothing on the screen. The power comes on and I can hear the fan but that's it. I did a little research on my phone and it was suggested I take out the battery and power cable and hold down the power button...nothing, I removed the memory and put it back...nothing. I'm guessing a piece of hardware has failed. I have also tried to connect it to a monitor but again nothing. Anyone have any magical ideas? Thanks.

My Dell D820 Laptop has the blue screen of death. I can't boot into windows. I can't even use any of the options such as safe mode and networking because it will bring me to the blue screen. Here's what it says: ***Stop: 0x0000007B(0xF79E1524,0xC0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)Run CHKDSk/F.

What should I do? I think this means that I have a corrupted file on my hard disk drive. I don't think it's necessary for me to reinstall windows xp. I hope not. I didn't create any backup files unfortunately. I would like to try to repair this first. Any suggestions???

Blue Screens of Death - On 6-month old Viao laptop.

I tried to solve the problem by restoring a Symantec Ghost image from 12 days ago, as everything else failed to stop the BSODīs. But even this didnīt work.

i tried to boot it up in safe mode, didn't work, does the same thing.
i tried to boot it from all the different options there were (debugging, safe mode with network etc etc) and still it goes to blue screen. she doesn't mind reformatting but really needs her files on the HDD.
im pretty sure its some random virus thing but how do u remove it w/o being able to boot into ur actual account ? O.O

I have DELL Inspiron Laptop 1720 and it caused a Blue Screen of Death error within first couple of hours. I begugged the error in the two files that I am uploading. The first one says that it is because of some driver error and the second one which was debugged from Memory.dmp of about 300 MegaBytes also says in the middle that it was due to Memory Corruption as well.

Could someone please explain it more clearly to me which file is right and do I still need to check my Memory because the laptop is still brand new.

debuglog.txt has been debugged from mini040808-01.dmp of size 135K from windows\minidump folder.

debuglogmemorydmp.txt has been debugged from \windows\memory.dmp of size 300 MegaBytes.

Both of the \windows\minidump and \windows\memory.dmp belong to the same Blue Screen of Death Error.

The Blue screen of death was very quick and I did not get any chance to note down anything at all thats why I debugged them.

Then again yesterday I got one more Blue Screen of Death Error while restarting Windows and it was " IO System Verification error in HIDCLASS.SYS (WDM DRIVER ERROR 220) (HIDCLASS.SYS + 2484 at 909Af484).

Please help if the Blue Screens of Death belong to software or hardware problems.

Other than those two Blue Screens of Death the system has been working absolutely fantastic and I have not received any other error messages within the Windows Vista ever since I bought it on 08 April 2008.

Loving it, Here's the story.

Laptop working fine, little bit slow here and there. AVG had always slowed my computer down with its uploads every time I turn on the computer, and since I already had the latest AdAware program I thought, hey lets uninstall.

During its removal it had an error, something to do with a file or folder or something (cannot remember) being corrupted/screwed and could not complete the process. I then gave up on the idea, tried to go online and it froze, I had to turn it off by holding down the on button. That was the last time I could use my laptop.

Now, when I turn on the computer, it will not start in any mode, safe mode included. It starts the Windows loading screen then jumps to a blue screen (yep, that devilish blue screen).

***STOP: 0x000000ED (0x86585900, 0xc000009c, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

When I start in safe mode, the very last line of programs or whatever to show up before it cuts to the blue screen is avgisshx.sys. I find it interesting seeing it was AVG that was the last program that I altered.

Now please don't say do a search, I have already spent at least three hours searching and this is my last resort. From what I have found I need to get a Windows XP Home Edition repair/restore/fix CD (not sure what version, all I can find is copyright 2004 on the windows sticker). Flop it in the CD drive and let it do its thing. So where can I obtain it? I have access to a XP Home Edition computer so i... Read more

A:Dell D620/XP Blue Screen Of Death



The avgisshx.sys file is indeed from AVG. And the unmountable boot volume means that the boot file has become corrupted or the HDD has failed.
Boot off of the Windows Disc Or download the Recovery Console ISO. Burn it to CD with IMGBurn Boot off of the CD and get to the Recovery Console. Here type chkdsk /R and press enter. Disk Check Outside Windows (Windows XP) The Check Disk utility will try and fix any file errors.
You can also download the ISO image for Seatools, or WD DataLifeGuardin my signature and burn the image to a CD using IMGBurn also in my signature and boot off of the newly created CD and run the Quick and Advanced tests on the HDD to test the integrity of the drive.

My Dell Desktop has a BSOD with a stop error that won't respond to a Chdsk /p or Chdsk /r....it just keeps returning the BSOD.

Am I screwed?

Is there any way I can repair this OS install without losing my data on the hard drive...

It's my wife's PC and she is going to KILL me when she gets home!



I have repaired and cleaned two Dell systems in the past three days. Both had XP home edition on it. One actually returned the blue screen of death twice on me due to memory issues, but...the error returned (once the error was sent to M$)stated that it was in fact a back door Trojan. The other one was a fake BSOD created by a malicious advertiser that wanted me to purchase their spyware removal program to basically...in essence, remove their installed virus.

Either way, my guess is that you have one of those two issues. There seems to be a major influx of this particular virus/Trojan download package either activating itself here lately, or just coming down the pipeline.

With the first computer, I found a .dll file by the name of: ati3d2a.dll (NOTE: the typical ATI driver is actually named: ati3d2.dll or ati3d2ag.dll) which could not be deleted no matter what I tried. It replicated itself only if AVG moved it into the vault and the registry value could NOT be delted nor permissions changed regardless of method. Safe Mode, CMD.....didn't matter.

I would also check to see if you have a replication file going on that names itself alpha or numerical as well. The second computer had a file that started out with the letter "b" and then progressed in increased increments such as: b100.exe b101.exe, b102exe and so on and so forth.

It was tied to a BHO (browser help object) and even though the value was deleted and removed, another program would continue churning t... Read more

I've only been having this recently, I thought this was a Video problem because it normally happens when my card is rendering a lot, I bought a new card and it still crashed and gave blue screen of death, Next I tried upgrading ram because my Usage is always 100%, Upgraded from 1gig to 3gig, I must say I feel the difference but I still end up with the blue screen, I thought oh crap, the only thing I haven't tried is buying a new Hard Drive which I'm going to be doing soon(I need the space) and the processor, Well since I have a dell 5150 they programmed there bios to reject new processors, The only way I can is to find a flashed version and try that but I can't find any. I mostly suspect its my Processor because its only 2.80 single core and I am a heavy application user and gamer. Maybe someone could explain my problem and maybe find a solution. If I need to do any processor tests ect let me know.

Hi, I've never posted on these forums but I am hoping someone can help. I bought a Dell Laptop and have, seemingly at random, gotten the Blue Screen when I start up my computer. I cannot find any pattern for this happening. I have gotten this screen almost as soon as I bought the computer. It sometimes reboots without a problem, but most times, I have to try Windows's System Restore and other troubleshooting tools several times before it reboots again. Sometimes this process can take me a couple of hours.
I decided to reformat my computer, and after a few days the same problem occurs. The computer works fine when on, but I am now afraid to turn it off since I might get the Blue Screen again and I don't know if I'll be able to reboot it successfully again (or lose all my data otherwise).
On reading previous threads, I saw that similar problems were more easily solved if the minidump files were provided, so I am attaching them hoping they will provide more insight. Thanks for your help!!

Hi , I was recently given an old-ish laptop free of charge as it doesn't work anymore.

I'd like to get it working but get the following message on a blue screen :

"a problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer


If this is the first time youve seen this error screen restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware is properly installed.
If this is a new installation , ask your hardware/software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

If problems continue , disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components , restart your computer , press F8 to select advanced startup options , and then select safe mode.

Technical information:

***STOP:0X000000ED (0X83963900,0XC000009C,0X00000000,0X00000000)

It is a Dell Inspiron with windows XP , the operating system is on a hard drive partition.
Is there any way to fix this problem or will it require a new hard drive and operating system install ?

I was thinking of trying to boot it from a windows recovery disk and somehow performing a system recovery from there , or am I wasting my time ?

Any help would be very much appreciated.

Thanks in advance , Gary.

A:Solved: Dell inspiron blue screen of death !

You have to establish your hardware state...

Try starting into BIOS, the first screen will usually tell you what HD's you have ready.

If you see no drives, very little can be done... However, throw up the model number.. If it was left upgradeable, you may have a chance.

The truth is, you probably got 'suckered.

Hi All, I am really in need of some help if possible.

I recently bought a new Dell XPS 16 laptop but seem to be incurring a daily crash or blue screen of death incident which can not be good for me or the laptop!

The blue screen error seems to be something about something called BUGCODE?

I followed some forums who said remove AVG but this didnt work?

Also the laptop just locks up all of a sudden or goes to a black screen and crashed?

Can not get the Task Manager of and have to do a hard reset to get it back up again?

II downloaded the SF Diagnostic Tool and have attached the files, so hoping all the info is there but if you need anything else let me know?

Thanks for any help in advance!

Twice in the past few months I've gotten the Blue Screen of Death when turning on my 2yr old Dell Inspiron 1525 laptop. Config List Failed, Code was STOP: 0x00000073 (0x00000001, 0xC000017D, 0x00000004, 0xF6BB9BB8). Both times I was able to boot up by pressing the Dell MediaDirect button next to the power button - and everything seemed fine. A couple of months since it last happened now I get the blue screen again. Pressing that other button doesn't help - I still get the blue screen. I've done the F8 thing and tried starting in Safe Mode. When it asks to select an OS, the only choice is Windows XP Embedded, but my laptop has Vista. I tried Startup Repair but it said it could not repair. System Restore failed due to unspecified error. And now I get the Blue Screen in Safe Mode with STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF794C524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I'm trying to help a friend with his Dell Latitude D410 Win xp pro. I'm a rank amateur, but know enough to get myself in trouble...
     This notebook has no cd/dvd drive or floppy drive, just usb. When you power it on, goes past the DELL splash screen then comes up to 'windows did not start successfully", blah, blah blah, and gives me the choices of safe mode, with networking, with command prompt, last known good config. or start windows normally = tried them all and it keeps coming up to the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH "0x0000007B (0xF8895528,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000).. I even swapped in a known good hard drive and came up to the same BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH.  I removed the D410 original hard drive and tried hooking it into my main Dell Studio XPS wind 7 computer to try to access the file system = it did not "see" the drive. I then hook it into a good running Dell D610 Win xp laptop, it took a good number of minutes for the drive to show up, but I couldn't access it. I did double-check the "known good" hard drive by cabling it to other computers and was able to access with no problem and then returned it to it's rightful place in it's properly running laptop. I did a search for "Create bootable USB drives the easy way" and downloaded  "RUFUS"  http://rufus.akeo.ie/ , but when I plugged in the RUFUS loaded usb, hit F12 to boot menu, chose USB, "invalid or damaged bootable partition" came up.   Any ideas?

Was functioning normally, had just been using it, then my cat sat on keyboard for several seconds, immediately new tabs I opened in Google Chrome were incognito only and if tried to open a new website on an already open not incognito screen, that tab also switched to incognito...apparently some setting got changed when cat sat on it.  Cleared cache, closed Google and reopened, the issue continued.  Tried to reboot laptop, but it wouldn't (just nothing happened)....normally I have no problem rebooting. So I did a shut down through the computer's shutdown function (not manually).  It did shut down, but when I booted it back up, it got all the way to where my desktop should appear, then the blue screen:
STOP: c000021a (Fatal System Error).  The Windows logon system process terminated unexpectedly with a status of Oxc0000005 (Ox00000000 Ox00000000) The system has been shut down.
Have tried to boot up about 5 times...every time gets all the way to desktop, then either that same blue screen code or this one:

I'll try to be as clear as possible with the situation. I have an HP laptop that runs Windows XP. Now, whenever I start it after it gets past the windows loading screen the blue screen of death flashes and it restarts. And since it always pops up on start-up there is no way for me to turn off the 'restart on blue screen' option. So I have no way of seeing what the error is. I tried starting it on safe mode and all the other options and the blue screen flashes every time. I figured I would need some sort of OS disk and I found one, though it isn't the official HP one for my laptop (don't know where that is), whenever I try to reboot the entire system using the OS disk the laptop and overheats most of the way into it. My laptop normally can work for a couple of hours before overheating, but with the OS disk, the heat generates too quickly. So is there anything else I can do or am I out of options, I would call customers service, but my warranty is up and I just spent $80 buying a new AC adapter (and yes I know I was ripped off on that). So can anybody help me?

A:Blue Screen of Death Issues (HP Laptop)

From the F8 boot menu screen you should be able to turn off "automatically restart", and thus atleast read BSOD parameters.

But frankly this is not likely to be much help if you cannot start in Safe Mode and this is an underlying hardware problem.

With the XP disk that you have, on another computer, you might try creating the bootdisk below and see what you can do with it; it will run as a "virtual" windows. If you still have problems -- you can be certain they are hardware.


A puppy linux booter is also good to test hardware with.

A:laptop won't boot - blue screen of death?

I'm looking for help with my 2005 acer laptop which won't boot up even in safe mode, I do however get the blue screen of death.
Brief history : I got a new laptop a few months ago so I put the old acer away. I decided to give the old laptop to a family member so I retrieved all my important data from the laptop and reset it to factory settings. This all worked fine and of course it went back to vista OS...once I finished all the updates (this took quite a while) I then updated to windows 7 which i was using before on this laptop, again this was successful.As I continued to install programs I had previously on the laptop (malwarebytes, Panda anti-virus etc.)..everything installed and worked properly so I continued to install windows office...the laptop rebooted several times successfully, until...the blue screen of death appeared..at this time I tried to start in safe mode to no avail...the laptop would try to repair itself and came up with the 'contact the manufacturer' screen...since this is an old laptop that had been running for quite a long time I feared I damaged some hardware...I managed to get to the 'reset to manufacturer settings' default screen by hitting the F key on start up, but it required a password...the default password, apparently in 000000..this did not work and I don't have any other password, so now I'm at a standstill...I have used your expertise before successfully and I hope you can help again...I've attached screen shots of the errors...thanks ...

See this link on recovering the Acer Recovery Password. You can use a bootable rescue disk like the one here to access the partition and aimdrs.dat file.

I understand that the system and everything is old, but it's all I've got to work with right now.

I have a Compaq Evo N800C running Windows 2000 Professional.

Everything was working fine, then suddenly Blue screen of death with error "0x0000007B: INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE"
I've tried every option in the F8 & F10 setups, everything takes me back to the blue screen. I know I read that this might be a virus. I read a suggestion about taking the drive to another computer to check this - I'm very very very home user basic beginner and I don't know if or how the drive can be removed from the laptop and put into my Dell desktop to check it.

Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated

I am trying to help a friend fix his laptop and find that I am woefully unprepared to help. The computer boots up to the Dell page and only gives me 2 options: Boot or setup. That is about all it will do. I am running a diagnostics and memory test now. The problem is not the screen unable to work, because it is working and in color too. There is no way to get into safe mode and that means there is now way that I can go back to a date when the computer worked. From the tests I am getting error code 2000-0142. Any suggestions or does this laptop need to visit a pro?
Service tag is G2CBSX1, if that helps.

A:Dell laptop grey screen of death

This particular code indicates a hard drive failure. It may be possible to remove the drive, slave it to another PC / laptop, and then see if it's possible to rescue data from it, but oftentimes it's irrecoverable.
