Blue screen of death on startup, normal startup on safemode

Q: Blue screen of death on startup, normal startup on safemode

One of our computers, running Windows XP, has something wrong. I suspect a virus.

When it turns on, it goes to the Welcome screen and then the BSOD.

Being the knowledgeable chap I am, I tried Safe Mode and it starts up perfectly fine.

Other than that, I have no other information unless you want what the BSOD says.

Thanks for any help.

Preferred Solution: Blue screen of death on startup, normal startup on safemode

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.)

Hello,
I have a HP dv6-1107ax laptop with a AMD Turion x2 Dual-Core Mobile RM-74, 4 GB DDR2 1600Mhz, and ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650.
Today when I booted up the laptop, after I put in my password. Few minutes later a Blue Screen pops up, and then my Laptop restarted. During the boot up (after the Blue Screen), the BIOS shows that no Boot-up or Start up files was on my hard drive, and this error code pops up (03F0). I decided to hold the Turn off button, to turn it off. Few hours later, I returned to my Laptop to try again, but this time, there was no error code from the BIOS, and that after I put in my password it booted successfully.
My question is, what was the problem? how do I fix it to Prevent Future problems?
I will attach the Event Viewer Logs that happened today, if that helps.

***STOP: 0x00000071 (0x0000000, 0x0000000, 0x0000000)

if this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:

check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. if this is a new installation ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windos 2000 updates you need.

if problems continue disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. disable bios memory option such as cacheing or shadowing. if you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components restart your computer and press f8 to select advanced startup.

refer to getting started manual for more troubleshooting information on stop errors.
this problem had happened immediatly after downloading and installing windows updates.

Hello,

Last weekend I had a problem where every time I started my computer I received a blue screen of death informing me that my computer had improper Boot Volume or some nonsense like that. Using instructions I found via Google (some from this site!) I restored my boot volume using the windows cd.

Tonight yet again my computer has to decided to mess up with a blue screen after startup. this time I get further into the start process (but not to windows) than I did last weekend, but I don't have time to read what the blue screen says before it makes my computer restart. last weekend it would just hang on the blue screen til I turned it off but this time I get a brief flash of blue and then it's restarted. It also doesn't look like there's as much text on the blue screen as before...but it may be the brief period I get to see it (or lack thereof).

I do feel as though the two instances are related as they seemed to start the same way. I went to restart my computer using the restart command, it would not restart, one of my open windows froze and would not turn off in task manager, so I turned it off manually. yes, I know that's not good at all, but I've turned it off before without it completely crapping out on me, it seems to only have this effect when it won't shut off when I want it to.

Despite the differences in the behavior of the startup error and the blue screens do you think it is the same problem? Should I try the boot volume restore thing... Read more

A:Blue screen of death upon startup

Since we cant establish the exact Windows Stop Error message, nor can we enter Windows Safe mode we need some guess work... sounds strange.

Anyway, i ask first, can you boot to a command prompt? (The same way you boot to Safe Mode, i.e F8 Key is the same way you boot to command prompt, except you select Safe Mode with Command Prompt).

Hello all,

I've been having some very strange behaviour on my home theatre pc the last 2 days and was hoping you could help me out. A break down:
Hard ware:
Home Theatre PC
No brand - built up myself
Core 2 Due 2.3 Ghz running on S Series GA 965 DS3 motherboard.
2 x 500 GB hard drives (one is Western Digital, the other I forgot)
Nvidia GeForce graphics - can't quite remember which one but I believe it runs at 420 mhz.
Hooked up to a 40 inch LCD from Samsung
Windows XP Home Edition

The computer served as my media centre to watch downloaded content on, as well as playing games. It was initially hooked to the internet but was taken off a few months ago. 2 days ago, I hooked it back up. I am running AVG so the first thing I did when I got the connection was update AVG. I had to run the AVG update several times and the 3rd time I was running it, I suddenly got a pop saying AVG found a virus! About a second later, the blue screen of death appeared. Another second later, the computer restarted and has never been the same since.

Sometimes when I restart, it will go to the blue windows welcome screen, and then have a blue screen of death (again for half a second) and then restart. As it restarts, it will sometimes go through the usual setup but takes much longer, especially when you see the desktop graphic. It will stay on that for about half a minute before my icons start to appear. When I boot up this way, my internet connection no longer works (it shows n... Read more

Hi!

I'm not sure I'm posting in the right forum, because I'm not sure if my problem is being caused by a virus/spyware, so if this is the wrong forum, please let me know.

My computer crashes to the dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) immediately after starting up. It usually says it is beginning a physical memory dump, but never actually dumps the memory. Sometimes it goes immediately to the BSOD upon starting up; other times it gets through the Windows login screen, boots to the desktop, and then crashes to BSOD before it finished loading the applications in the system tray.

It won't boot up in Normal mode - hasn't in 2-3 days despite repeated attempts. But it will boot up fine in Safe Mode every time.

Ran anti-virus scan in Safe Mode. It found nothing.

Ran anti-spyware scan in Safe Mode. It found nothing except 33 tracking cookies, which I quarantined.

I have tried using System Restore to go back to several different restore points. System Restore seems to work fine until it gets to the point where it has to shut down and restart the system. It shuts down, but then goes to the BSOD upon restarting. At that point, I have to shut it down manually. Then I start it up again and get a message from System Restore that my computer has been successfully restored to the System Checkpoint I had chosen. So to test whether the Restore solved the problem, I try to shut down and restart. But upon shutting down, I get a message that I need to end a program cal... Read more

Uh oh! I tried to run CHKDSK /F, and now it won't even boot up into Safe Mode. It goes past the Windows login screen, and as soon as you see the desktop appear it flashes to the BSOD.

Hello everyone, my question has probably been answered before, but out of all the blue screens of death questions I saw, none of them specifically help my problem. This is all on windows XP btw.

I recently got a virus by downloading what I thought was a no-cd crack for a game I just bought, turns out it wasnt a no-cd crack. I could not figure out how to remove it myself, so I called geeksquad to come and fix it. It was that virus that gives you the 1 minute countdown and shuts itself off. Well, turns out the guys from geeksquad tend to mess things up and make things worse than they originally were. They removed the virus, and replaced it with an even more annoying problem. Now whenever I start up my computer I get a blue screen of death with a STOP error message. You all know the scripted message, but the technical information reads

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0XC0000005,0xB1B67D59,0XAE0ECA28, 0X00000000)

Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical Memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.

Now I have been having this problem ever since geeksquad came out and "fixed" my computer. From what I understand this is a problem with the RAM, and I know it is not a hardware issue because all my RAM is brand new. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated fixing this problem. Thank you very much.

I have a problem occuring recently with my computer, I start it up and upon getting to the desktop it will just restart sometimes displaying a BSOD for what seems to be a split second or doesn't show it at all.

All my hardware is new, and shouldn't have any issues, although I can be wrong I really hope it doesn't come down to such circumstances but I need some help desperately.

I can get into safemode, but have no idea where to go from there and the weirdest thing is, it will work at my friends houses (2 differant towns/locations etc.) without a single problem, but as soon as I get home I have the same issues, call it weird whatever.

For the most part, I can answer questions efficiently cause I have some experience with computers in general, just not this in depth. So please help me

A:Blue Screen of Death upon startup

First thing is to read the BSOD message. To do that, stop the auto-restarts.

Turn off auto restart - right click my computer, properties, left click advanced, and in the startup and recovery section left click the settings button and uncheck the box 'automatically restart'... next time it will blue screen properly, then you make a note of the exact message and post it here.

Why not post the screen shots directly on here instead of the SPAM filled ADrive? Just because you are getting a blue screen does not mean it is a memory error. What did you do or install onto the hard drive prior to the blue screen occuring? Can you boot into safe mode?

Please help A PC was built for me for gaming purposes, and I've had nothing but problems with it...

After a Windows Update (don't know which one, as I just kept getting prompted to update and I did), it keeps giving me the blue screen of death after a few minutes. I tried to do a System Restore. Since the computer is fairly new, there was only one restore point. I restored to it, and now the problem got worse to where I get the blue screen on startup. I've tried to log in using Safe Mode, but it freezes each time (except if I choose to log in with Safe Mode - Command Prompt, which is even harder for me to understand).

I truly hope there's a fix to this.. Help?

EDIT: After I let it sit for a while, it actually didn't give me the blue screen of death for over an hour. I didn't touch anything for an hour. Then I tried to play a game, and the blue screen of death reappeared. It restarted, and now it's back to appearing on start-up. It's not the game, as again this only started happening with the Windows Updates..

I tried to use my boot cd, but it does the exact same thing.

My computer has a system restore function as well so I selected that. The program has a 6 step process, the first being a choice of what kind of reformat (ie: complete reformat or make a backup of all the files before reformatting) but it automatically selects complete reformat and save nothing.

I don't want to loose any files, what would you recommend doing?

Hi all,

Over the past few months i have been having problems with my computer connecting to my router and often the only way to fix the problem has been to restart the router. Unfortunately, most often the computer would close down but be stuck at the 'shutting down' screen for hours upon hours soi would just have to manually switch it off by holding the power button - i have been doing this approx. 3 times per day for the past 2 months. I know this could seriously corrupt the harddrive but what else could i do. Not sure whether this has contributed to the problem i outline below but i have included just incase.

Anyway today i was just about to log off when my younger brother thought it would be funny to swithc off the computer from the mains. I tried putting it on again but i got the 'Could not load Windows screen'. I started Startup Repair but it just went to a BSOD:

Put computer off and tried Startup Repair but again would either get BSOD again or it would just keep on running and curiously the mouse would stop responding and when i hit a keyboard button everything freezes.

Also tried putting in safe mode but no luck as i would get a (different) BSOD:

Try running chkdsk from a command prompt. Boot up the Windows installation DVD or repair disc, and select "repair my computer". Enter the following:
Code:

Make note of the letter of the main volume, your OS one. It is most likely C, but if not, replace the letter below:

A few days ago, my father used this computer for reasons I see no exact reasoning to allow. Since then, this computer has been unable to run outside of Safe Mode. Upon reaching the Windows XP Logo, it would instantly restart. I have disabled Automatic Restarting and receive a blue screen mentioning this STOP error:

I do not know what he did, nor would he know or remember anyway. It is my believe this is caused by a viral infection of the computer due to his arrogance of safe internet usage procedures, but individual scans of the HDDs prove nearly useless. I have found posts of similar errors requiring checks and such I am unacquainted with, but I am hoping help could be provided. This computer is an eMachines T2958, purchased around 5 years ago.

I have lost track of what more information you'll need, besides exact specs (which I'll need to find, then). So inquire where needed. I am only hoping that restores or formats are not required. I had a minor bad experience a few years back where my sister did a system restore without my consent and I had lost a large majority of code I had written for a game.

Edit: I've added the computer specs I obtained from PC Wizard 2008 in 2007 to my profile. The only change since then is finally moving to Windows XP Service Pack 3 after finding the erroneous registry by one of my programs preventing the upgrade. The hardware is the same. Not everyt... Read more

A:Receiving blue screen stop error on normal XP SP3 startup

0x0000007E: SYSTEM_THREAD_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
A system thread generated an exception which the error handler did not catch. There are numerous individual causes for this problem, including hardware incompatibility, a faulty device driver or system service, or some software issues.

Generally when one can only access through Safe Mode the issue is due to drivers.

If you can access through Safe Mode check Event Viewer (EventVwr.msc) for additional information such as Yellow Triangles and RedXs and note what they flag.

Due to the fact that you are suspicious of viral infection go to our Virus and Malware Removal forum and read the UPDATED 8 Step sticky and if you can follow the steps as given.

Then on that forum post there with the the required logs attached. You'll get excellent help.

The whole story with this laptop. I once had a problem with the black screen of death when i was able to login. there was this empty black screen and no desktop. I was able to get through the black screen of death and the desktop was working. Problem was some of my drivers or registries were messed up. Bascially my laptop was never the same after the black screen of death. so i reinstall some of my drivers like access to internet, sound, and dvd-rw to get it running. some program still don't work today like window defender
After a random window update that restarted my dell laptop. This new problem started.

Hello there all,

My name is Adam and I am currently running a Dell Dimension E520, Windows XP MCE 2005, 250GB HD, Dual Core 2.8Ghz, and 1 Gig RAM.

For some reason, this morning I woke up and turned on my computer. It started up normally and went to the login screen where it froze before the "Press Ctrl+Alt+Delete" box appeared (I set this up to do this instead of the welcome screen). Anyway, I was forced to do a hard restart. This time, the computer didn't even get to the login screen before it gave me the blue screen of death with the following error code:

Code:
Stop 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x8715A820, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)
I did some research and found that it said 0x24 is a NTFS.sys problem. I followed the steps and inserted my XP cd but wasn't even presented with the option for recovery console. It just said "Setup is loading files" then it said "Starting Windows" and then continued through the process of starting up until I reached the Error message. I can't even start up in safe mode! I've tried everything I could find on the internet and am desperate and don't know what to do. ANY help would be a life saver. Thank You!

A:Blue Screen of Death Upon Startup - NTFS.sys error?

Hello avsfilms

When booting from the XP installation CD first you must go into the BIOS and set the boot order to
floppy
CDROM
Hard disk
SAVE and EXIT

Then reboot and the CD should boot up properly.
Watch for "Press any key to boot from CD"

A couple of pages into setup select the first "R" you come to. This is ths Recovery Console.

At the command prompt type
chkdsk /r (there is a space before /)
Enter

Hi all,

I have a laptop that is dual booting Windows XP Home and Vista. When I boot to XP it gets as far as starting to show the desktop but then produces a blue screen of death with the error:

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

I can boot to Vista and use the machine with no problems. I can also boot to XP Safe Mode with no problems. I have not added any new hardware recently.

I have ran chkdsk on the drive that XP boots from, I have also gone into XP safe mode and selected a diagnostic startup so that only basic services are loaded, but I still get the blue screen error.
Laptop specs:
Centrino Duo 1.8GHZ
2GB DDR2 RAM
512MB nVidia Geforce Go 7900 GS
2 x 120GB HD

Any help is much appreciated on this!

Hi so I am having problems with my computer. About 6 hours ago I had left my computer running for around 2 hours, in complete inactivity, and when I started using it the screen froze and turned off. Deciding to turn it manually off, I then found vertical blue lines appearing on the windows screen as it started up. This just got worse as the screen went totally black but the computer kept running. I assume this is not a hardware problem, because I am typing this now on safe mode with networking and there is no blue lines.
I already ran some steps of my own before asking for help from this website with avg, superantispyware, combofix, malewarebytes, and a temporary file cleaner by old timer. The found some viruses and spyware which they deleted.
I haven't seen now if my computer can boot in normal mode now, because I fear it might get infected again.
P.S. I think I followed the instructions for the GMER scan mostly right, but I'm kind of confused on the part if I don't get the message that the tool warns of rootkit activity. What should be checked on the right hand side then cause mine didn't include c drive (the drive I have information on) checked.

A:Blue lines at startup? Screen shuts off when I boot in normal mode

The main problem with my computer not being able to load and the vertical blue lines was solved. The video card indeed appeared to be burned out or malfunctioning.
There was as a result no virus affecting my system.
In case anybody is reading the main way you can use to see if theirs a virus or your video card is malfunctioning is by running video tests or if any lines appear on the dell logo because viruses usually affect your system after the dell logo loads and when windows starts to load

Hi, thanks for checking my question. I haven't found an answer to my particular situation:

Dell xps m1430 laptop w/vista (32).

It all started with a blue screen w/scrolling text after the fated restart. The blue screen text said "if this is the first time you've seen this message..." and then comp restarted, again showing the blue screen, then restarted into windows repair mode, after repair mode tried to fix the problem comp restarted, then the screen went black / blank right after the little windows loading animation (where the bar keeps moving from left to right and there's a small windows logo).
It all happened fast, so there may have been steps I forgot, but that's the jist of it.

Now screen always goes black / blank during startup after the windows loading animation, so I can't start windows in normal mode.
I can start in safe mode if I manually force shutdown by holding the power button, so I'm not imploding with fear... ok I am.

Possible causes:
1. This occured right after installing 11 vista updates (that restart was when I saw the blue screen)

2. Also occured the restart after running a patch called "Vista TCP/IP and UAC AutoPatch 6.0" I downloaded it from softpedia, the developer was listed as defcon, and their website listed was securevista.net, but the site is down(I found this out after the problem occured).

Problem:

So, my dear computer is acting up again. And this time, it's a hardware problem. Whenever I turn it on it would beep indicating that the system has started up correctly, would show me the bios start-up window and then out of the blue while checking the CD-ROM for Boot CD this message appears:

For Realtek RTL8111B/8111C Gigabit Ethernet Controller v2.06 (0704255)

PXE-MOF: Exiting PXE ROM

Randomly, I manage to get past this and attempt to load on the Windows XP, after doing so I get a black screen or running it a few minutes I get a blue screen of death.

Safe mode doesn't work either, since the System Restore is turned off, and I haven't installed anything or modified the OC in any way for a long time.

Technical parameters of the PC:

OC: Windows XP SP3 32bit
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2.8GHz 10066MHz 3MB

Is there a way to fix this without going to my vendor for a repair? All advice are welcome, thanks in advance.

So, I downloaded this client, and attempted to install it. During the installation I was told I had to uninstall the old version, and then I received a Blue Screen of Death.

Windows then restarted automatically, and during boot it tried to install the latest VPN Client again, with the same outcome (a crash).

I have went into Safe mode, deleted everything from the %temp% folder then booted back into Normal mode but on boot the Windows installer still attempts to install the latest VPN.

Where is it reading it from?

Any ideas?

FYI- http://support.ifb.net/temp/vpn/ , the right most entry is the version I attempted to install.

Thanks,
Andrew
 

A:Windows installer kicks in on startup and causes Blue Screen Of Death, VPN Client

Try booting into Safe Mode again and do a START---ALL PROGRAMS---ACCESSORIES---System Tools---System Restore. Pick a date prior to the VPN client installs and restore via a reboot to that state hopefully. We use Shrewsoft's VPN Client at work and it is Windows 7 compliant.

Hope this helps!!

Hello,

I bought COD MW3 via Steam. I had download the game from the steam server and I played it several times without any problems. After I reinstalled Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bits I had to download COD MW3 again from the Steam server. I installed the game. Till here nothing went wrong.
When I started the game my screen freezes and I get the blue screen of death and my PC restarts.
So I can't play the game anymore!

Check the attachment. I added all my dmp files, I'm not sure if they all were caused by COD MW3. I know for sure that the last one is! '071412-22230-01.dmp'.
Could someone help me out please?!
Windows info:
- Windows 7 Ultimate x64
- Full retail
- Bought my PC in December 2011 (Christmas)
- Reinstalled Windows 7 in March 2012 I guess

error = STOP: c0000218 \systemroot\system32\config\software

When I start windows I get this blue screen every single time. I am unable to start windows in any form (safemode etc.). I have the windows re-installation startup disk but for some reason my disk drive is unable to read it. I have used this startup disk with this computer recently to bring my computer back to factory settings in the summer, so I know the cd and my cd drive were working at most 2 months ago.

I'm stuck because I dont know any way to fix this error with out my disk drive working.

Firstly, this happens on my Dell (dont know what brand/model) desktop. NOT my laptop..the one I posted about before. Oh yeah and this runs on Windows XP sp2.

Anyway this has been going on for a long time, a few things have been happening (so i know it's definitely something wrong):

- Slow startup + shutdown
- Blue screen of death showing at random times..and when I run certain programs (itunes, etc)
- Firefox not opening
- Sometimes when I turn on the computer the whole desktop & taskbar wont show up
- I keep getting random prompt boxes saying something about adaware/spyware
- When I turn on the computer and if the desktop shows up it'll say something about rundll32
- If the desktop doesnt show up and I turn on the computer I'll do ctrl alt + delete type in explorer and it'll show up after a few clicks
- I have the active desktop recovery thing, but it won't show up if I click it
- + more errors that I can't think of atm

So I turn on my computer this morning and the BSOD pops up. Error code is:

***STOP: 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xF78C63DC, 0xF78C60D8, 0x862A5805)

It says to disable any anti virus, disk defrag, or backup utilities, but I can't even get into Windows. Can't boot into safe mode or last known configuration either.

I reset the RAM and used both sticks on their own, same problem.

Any ideas how to fix this?

A:Blue screen of death on startup....cant boot into Windows (0x24 stop code)

Hi

0x24 stop error indicates a problem with the driver ntfs.sys that allows Windows to read from NTFS formatted drives.

If you have an XP CD, boot off the CD, enter the recovery console, and type in chkdsk /f.

Any ideas what the problem could be please chaps?

Hey everyone,
I'm taking a look at my friend's HP Pavilion ze1230, and it has Windows XP Home Edition. It starts with the screen that says "we apologize for the inconvenience, but windows did not start successfully, bla bla bla, and then it gives options of safe mode (3 kinds), last known good configuration, and start windows normally. Well no matter which one i choose, they all eventually come to a blank screen. On start windows normally and last known good configuration, it will do the windows XP startup with the bar going back and forth, but after that it will just turn black, but the mousepointer can move freely. When i choose the safe mode, it will run through the commands, and then come to the same screen as before, except in 4 corners it says safe mode and at top it says Microsoft (R) Windows XP (R) (Build 2600). I ran the E-Diag, and everything was working fine. She doesn't have a boot disk because HP doesnt give them with their computers i guess. I'm not sure whats causing this and i dont know what to do from here, so if you guys could help me out i would greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
