[SOLVED] BSoD on standard boot, safe mode boot, and xp install disc boot

Q: [SOLVED] BSoD on standard boot, safe mode boot, and xp install disc boot

Hey guys,
Thanks ahead of time for the help. I can honestly say I'm dumbfounded with this issue and would rather ask for help then hook up my master HD as a slave and force a reformat which would be my next step.

Anyways, here's the background on the issue.

AMD Athlon 64 3700+ OC'd to 2.75ghz
Asus A8N SLI Deluxe Mobo
BFG Tech Nvidia 7800 GTOC x2 (SLI)
Dual Sata Hd's, both the 3gb/s connection. (750gb main/250gb Backup)
Sound Blaster XFI Fatal1ty sound card
Creative modem blaster v.92 dialup modem ( @ dialup)

A few days ago, not quite sure why, but when I booted the comp the graphics card proceeded to tweak out and basically looked like fuzz upon entering windows. Eventually after hard resetting it a few times it'd boot normal. Today, I was running Nvidia NTune utility to find a stable OC setup for my PCI bus and what not, and it rebooted as normal during the process. Graphics card tweaked again, so I did what I know to do and uninstalled/reinstalled the drivers for my 7800's. Seemingly fixed the problem. Rebooted and resumed the OC process and went to watch TV.

45 Minutes later I come back and my computer is rebooting itself constantly. Upon getting the the xp loading screen, it BSoD's and reboots.

So, I try and boot in safemode to uninstall/reinstall drivers yet again. When I press safemode, it begins loading basic drivers. When it gets to SPTD.sys it pauses, locks up, and reboots (no BSoD)

Next step, repair through XP installer disc. I put it in, boot off CD and all is well. Gets to the screen with 3 choices: Begin install, repair console, or quit. When i choose begin install, it immediately gives me a BSoD, same with if I choose repair console.

The BSoD error coding I get when pressing Begin install and recovery console is:

Stop: 0x00000024 (0x001902Fe, 0xF79026DC, 0xF79023D8, 0xF70C2F81)

****NTFS.sys - Address F70C2F81 base at F7073000, Datestamp 41107eea

I really am dumbfounded as to what I can do since it won't even let me reformat....

Any ideas?

Preferred Solution: [SOLVED] BSoD on standard boot, safe mode boot, and xp install disc boot

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: [SOLVED] BSoD on standard boot, safe mode boot, and xp install disc boot


Well, a friend needed me to fix a design for him emergency status in Illustrator CS3, so I went to work troubleshooting.

All signs point to NTFS.sys being corrupt, etc. Which makes the drive unreadable, hence the reboots.

So, I snagged my dads IDE harddrive from his computer, hooked it up as master in my computer and it still gave me the BSoD. I then unhooked both of my Sata Hd's, and ran ONLY the IDE drive. This IDE drive is fine (i'm on it right now on my dads comp to write this). I try and boot my system off just his harddrive and it STILL gave me the BSoD.

Only difference is the BSoD is staying up now on normal boot so I can give you the error.

Error code is 0x0000007B? I believe.

But yeah, the computer is still unable to boot off a good HD even with the bad ones not hooked up.

Now I'm thinking a memory issue? or Video ram issue? Fried GPU/RAM?

AHHHHHH!!!!! i have no idea what to do. This is ridiculous. meanwhile my friend is screwed on his design for a t-shirt i told him i'd do.

My PC will not boot up. An error message occurs a few moments into the boot process " We're just collecting some error info and then we'll restart you." Th PC then disconnects and restarts and after a few few moments the same error message occurs. Have left if for 3 hrs and it is definitely stuck in a loop.

I've tried using Shift F8 and other function keys to get to a safe boot menu option but nothing works. I can get to the bios set up screen but that's all.

The problem started after I was doing a system restore to the previous day (so it should have been fairly quick) and after several hours it seemed to be getting nowhere. I eventually had to pull the plug and hope for the best! And now I'm really stuck.

Can anyone tell me how to get the thing started again.

My PC is an Acer Aspire 5600U

A:Cannot boot computer in either standard or safe mode

I think your Mbr got damaged. Solution is to start from the windows dvd, go to advanced options and try automatic repair option. If that doesn't work try the refresh. If that doesn't work either go to the DOS window. There are several options possible to get the mbr working again. Google mbr restore because I don't know them out of the blue. Let me know I if they worked, meanwhile I well check the commands as well and post them unless somebody else posts them before me.

I have a PC here that won't boot into Windows. You see a quick flash of the windows logo, then it goes straight into a blue stop screen. It won't boot into safe mode either.....the same thing happens when you try to boot to safe mode. It won't boot in "last working config".

What can I do here? There's no way to run an anti-malware/virus, because I can't get in. This isn't my PC. It was given to me. The lady said she may have downloaded a virus, and she only used it to play internet games, and surf.

Any help is appreciated.

A:PC Won't Boot Into Windows - BSOD - No Safe Mode - No Way To Boot?

Do you have a second hard drive available? If so, installing a temporary OS and anti-virus into it, and running the original HD as a secondary HD will allow you to see if (a) the original HD is operational in the first place, and (b) be able to run that anti-virus and see if it finds something. Depending on how how your HDs are installed (IDE or SATA) will depend on how to set this up.

In an IDE system, because both drives would have an OS in them, do not use CS for your cable settings - set the new drive to MASTER (MA) and the the old drive as SLAVE (SL). In an SATA system, since this system is plug-and-play, simply leave the old drive unplugged from the SATA cable while booting up the new drive. Once up and running, plug in the cable and allow the computer to 'find' the drive. If it fails to, there's a good chance the drive is dead.

In either version, once the computer hopefully 'finds' the old drive, you have your choice on what to do at this point - first will be of course, run the anti virus. Then you could save any files that might need to be backed up. But this would be the point to see if you want to keep the original, or leave it as a second drive in the computer (a good way to keep files happy, as virus' tend to stick to the boot drive).

Mind you, if you choose to go back to the old drive as the main, if the anti virus actually found anything, you may still find the unit does not want to boot, since removing the virus may have trash... Read more

I am new to this forum and decided to post my problem after reviewing a number of the forums and seeing very good advice and follow through by the members. I hope you will be able to assist me.
I am running a Dell Latitude 6400 laptop with XP Professional. Several weeks ago I started getting periodic BSOD which, after running ckdsk and series of drive diagnostics, narrowed down to a dying hard drive. I was able to clone the drive to a new one and replace. Everything was working fine and I was thrilled that the laptop was running better than ever. I only mention this as background as I don't believe the current problem is related, but you never know.
Current problem and reason for the post is that several days ago I installed a driver for my Motorola Razr phone from nodevice.com (based on Motorola Tech Support advice that this was where to download the driver) to enable USB charging of the phone from the laptop. Towards the end of the install I got a momentary odd flashing of the screen but the laptop went on to indicate the install was successful.  Not much later, upon reboot, I started getting BSOD or  GSOD (seems to alternate between the two) and have been unable to boot to Normal or any Safe Mode. I am able to boot to CD and run Repair and Restore functions but without success. When I reboot to either Normal or Safe Modes BSOD remains. It seems pretty clear that this is a driver conflict issue. Problem is, I don't ... Read more

I'm trying to fix a friend's Toshiba Satellite laptop (Vista). Since it's not my computer I'm not sure how the problem started but when booting normally it goes as far as the initial options screen (press f2 for settings, f10 for boot options) and then goes black. It won't boot into safe mode, from a restore CD or from the recovery discs (they were burned from a recovery partition right after install, I guess it's possible that they weren't set up properly). When booting from the cd it gets past loading files to the blue loading bar, and then goes black. Any suggestions? I'm guessing it might be hardware but is there any way to troubleshoot it before taking the whole laptop in? I'm assuming it's not the HDD because it won't even boot from the CD.

A:Vista Black Screen (no safe mode or boot from disc)

Have you tried using the screen toggle? Most laptops are able to toggle the screen to an external monitor. Normally hold down the Fn key and hit F5 or F8 or something like that. When it boots it may be trying to switch it to an external monitor.

Hi there,

I have a laptop here that will not boot into anything. When booting into Windows XP it will hang at the progress bar screen. When booting into Safe Mode it hangs at Mup.sys. When trying to boot off a Windows disc it will start loading the drivers and then I'll get a STOP 0x7B error. I have slaved the HDD in another machine and removed all viruses, run several chkdsk's and also replaced the Mup.sys driver. Still the same thing happens. I have also tried another HDD and tried to just boot from the Windows XP disc again and the same thing happens.

Apologies in advance for the scant details. I have a Compaq Presario that was left on overnight, connected to an unstable network. The power cord got pulled out and the battery died overnight.

I plugged it back in and hit the Power button on the computer, and "Resuming Windows" appeared on the screen, but hung up. I hit the Power button again, waited about 10 seconds, and then hit the Power button a third time.

I got an error apologizing that Windows couldn't start; I had three "Safe Mode" reboot options, as well as the "Last Good Configuration" and "Normal" options.

All "Safe Mode" options get to a file called "tiumflt.sys" and then goes to a quick BSOD, then tries to restart, and goes back to the error apologizing that Windows can't start. When I try "Last Good Configuration" or "Normal", I also get taken back to the BSOD.

I can change boot order and go into the Phoenix BIOS...the options are the CD Drive, Floppy Drive (which I don't have), HD, or Network Adaptor. Note that the CD Drive is broken as well (has been for some time).

I'm currently running the HDD Long Self Test, but the Short Test failed after about 40% complete.

Can anybody help? I did to some research, and am hoping to get some help before attempting to reset the BIOS by removing the battery from the mother board. I'l be happy to gather whatever additional information you require.

#1 Hi, basically this probem arose from nowhere. I came back from holiday 6 days ago and my pc took longer than i remember to boot. Only till i realised the next day and day after it was getting longer and some times not loading past the 'Windows' screen. Each time when it hasn't loaded fully, I turn it off and re-boot pressing F8 to get up safe mode, which doesn't work at all.
It gets stuck on '/avgdiseh' doesn't load past and will stay like that till turned off. Start up repair does absolutely nothing, it asks to do System restore which then errors and reboots, if i press cancel it stays on the 'Scanning' screen for hours.. (8 hours today)

#2 I've now seemed to run into another problem trying to boot from my CD drive. First time I loaded everything correctly got to 'install windows' screen clicked start up repair which did nothing. Ever since that windows won't detect my CD drive even though it opens and did read CD's.(watched a film on it the other day)

I've looked online and other people have had the same problems and clearly i haven't found a solution yet. I've tried cleaning the inside of my case, double checking connections, changing boot options. From what i've read its either a failed HDD, failed RAM (, or failed CD drive in the case of my second dilemma)

I'm just curious as to whether anyone can pin point what the problem is. If its an easy fix or whether it is possibl... Read more

I have in my possession a hard drive with Windows XP Pro 64-bit. The OS resides on an NTFS file system partition of half of a 500 Gig hard drive. It is part of a custom built system and has had only been formatted once. This installation has been active for about six months. It did encounter a virus which infected the System Restore files and thus were cleared via safe mode. Since that time Safe Mode has been inaccessible. Consistently stopping at the acpitabl.dat file.

However, when booting Windows normally, the system boots with proper speed and with no apparent issues and continues to work for days on end.
It is only when booting into Safe Mode that any issues become apparent.

I am curious as to any solutions this fine community may have to offer. I received great information from the Hardware group and hope for the same here.

System hardware includes:
AMD Phenom Quad AM2+ Black Edition
Gigabyte MA790GP-UD4H
G.Skill Memory
Corsair 1000W PSU

at what point exactly does the pc fail to boot? loading bars? does it bluescreen? reboot? we need much more info to help

there is a way to turn off the loading bars so we can see whats going on behind if thats the case , then you can let us know exactly whats written on screen when it [email protected] out this may help us determine which driver is loading and causing the crash

click start / all programs / then acessories and select run

type msconfig and hit return

click the BOOT tab

check the "os boot information" box

check "make all boot setting permanant" hit apply then ok

obviously you can do this in safe mode

then boot into windows and watch , take a pic if you have too

Good evening, one and all. I will try to include as much relevant info as possible:

Whats going on guys,
I have a Windows XP Professional Edition and i incurred a spyware virus on my PC, so i made a dumb decision by running MSCONFIG and changing my SAFEBOOT option, I did this because previously I couldn't even get into Safe Mode, it would load the files on the screen

and my CPU would reboot, i even tried the other Safe Mode options (command prompt, networking, etc.) I still couldnt accomplish logging into a Safe Mode. But I could still log into Windows Normally.

BUT Now (after changing my SAFEBOOT option in MSCONFIG, thinking i couldnt log into Safe Mode that way), I cannot even log into Windows XP (PERIOD.) Normally or via Safe Mode, Last Known Good Configuration, or any-other way. My CPU loads up and once it reaches the Windows XP Splash Screen it appears to be normally loading, then my screen goes blank and my system reboots, It reboots in an endless loop, i could leave this sucker on for a whole month and it would still be in an infinite boot loop between the start-up of the CPU and the Windows XP Splash Screen..lol

I left my computer asleep. When I awoke it, it froze up, so I restarted it and it told me I had a disk boot failure, insert boot disk.

If I reboot, and press f8 to get a boot menu from the bios, I can select the drive that has windows on it.

If I do not intervene beyond this, it will boot to windows, but as soon as I login, it will show the task bar, but that's as far as it gets. The mouse will still move but beyond that I have no control, left or right click, ctrl, alt, del. Etc. The one light on the front of the case that usually blinks, remains on solid.

Sometimes after this stage if I reboot (with the button on the case), the drive that contains windows will not be recognized by the bios. It will simply say that sata connection is empty.

If I power the computer off, and wait a few seconds and turn it on, the drive will be displayed again. I then can press f8 to get the boot menu, and select the right drive, and this time I will press f8 to get the windows boot menu. I can select safe mode with networking, and boot up. I have been using windows on safe mode for over an hour and it runs fine.

I have run MSE, as well I downloaded AVG free, but I can only use the command line version in safe mode, which I did.

I have a pc with Windows XP with SP2 installed. My computer has generally worked fine with little issues, but the other day Norton flagged up a virus issue. The virus was called Trojan.Patchep!inf, and couldn't be removed using Norton.

Naturally, I'd have posted this in the malware removal/HJT forum, but I'm now locked out of my system.

I need a way to be able to get into Windows before I can pull off any HJT logs or run any applications.

The issue I have, is when Windows is loading up. I turn on my computer, and Windows boots up until the scrollbar/loading page. The computer then automatically reboots, and the cycle continues until I just hold the off button to turn off the computer. I've entered the boot menu and attempted the reboot in Safe Mode, and also tried using last working configuration. This has no effect, and still results in the constant restarting of the system.

I don't have a Windows XP disc as it was pre-installed when I bought the computer.

For the time being I can boot from disc using Linux Ubuntu. I read about the virus that infected my system, which suggests that files such as winlogon are affected by the virus, which would explain my problems booting. Would it be possible to repair these files from Ubuntu, allowing me to boot the computer with Windows? I can then start a thread in the malware forum, posting HJT logs etc.

Thanks for any help,

If you have a lot of important stuff on the laptop then it's imperative you get an external hard drive large enough to hold it. Murphy's law will strike with vengeance if you don't. Back it up now before you lose it.

Once you have it backed up then you can try things to fix this. Until then you are risking your precious data.

I am running Windows XP, SP2 on a Gigabyte GA-P35C-DS3R with Intel Q6600 processor, 4Gb of RAM and 3 hard drives - 2 SATA (II) and one IDE (the SATAs are not in RAID).

It first arose after having left the computer on over night and returning to find it frozen. It required a complete power off. Upon rebooting there are the usual options - start windows normally, last known good config, and the 3 safe mode options.

When trying either start normally or with last known good config, it brings up the familiar windows logo boot screen, then after a short while, reboots itself.

If trying one of the safe mode boot options, it goes through all the usual driver loads, and stops at JGOGO.sys, with the message 'Press Esc to cancel loading sptd.sys'. If I press escape, this message clears, the system hangs, and reboots itself. It I don't press escape, after a short while the message disappears, and a reboot happens.

I have tried a number of solutions to this problem - I have 3 hard drives, with XP running off one of the SATA drives. The IDE is currently empty and the other SATA holds media. I have tried running windows restore console and doing a CHKDSK /R on all disks. The boot hard drive has an 'unrecoverable error' on it, as did the other sata drive but that apparently disappeared after a second run of CHKDSK /R. After having run the CHKDSK on the drives, the system amazingly managed to boot fine, however, at the next reboot the problem reoccured. I have tried sw... Read more

Windows 7 Update Boot Error

Maybe this should be under Windows update problems, however I'm not positive that it is an update problem. I have no clue why this is happening. I am running windows 7 64

My computer has been trying to do a system update for awhile. I would shut down the computer. Then upon boot up the computer would try to install the files. When windows would load, the load would fail and the computer would restart. Then the computer would remove the changes and reboot. Finally the computer would boot normally only to still need an update (obviously).

Today the computer is booting up getting to the windows loading screen only to cause the computer to "reboot". The problem is the computer will never reboot from here. Currently to access the computer I have to enter in through safe mode. There seems to be an error with the windows update software. I run Windows Update Trouble shoot and Error pop up that cannot be fixed.

I've been working on my In-Law's Toshiba laptop with XP Home SP3. I just spent over a week working with a very helpful member in another part of the forum cleaning dozens upon dozens of viruses & rootkits off the computer. I was at the Microsoft site & tried to run their Live One Care and first it required me to take McAfee off the computer & then half way through the install of the Live One Care all the IE windows closed. I didn't get any sort of errors, it just closed. When I tried to open IE again, I got an error saying it could not access it & I may not have permissions (screen shot attached) I uninstalled the Live One Care but still got the same error. So I uninstalled IE7 & tried to reinstall it. It runs through set up then tells me it didn't install properly & I need to restart & then follow the trouble shooting link it put on the desktop. I restart, but when I click on the link, I get the same error again. I read that if you already have SP3, you have to uninstall it before you can reinstall IE, so I tried that, but still get the same error. I also cannot reboot in Safe Mode. I don't have the slightest clue as to what to do next! PLEASE HELP!!?!?!

I did this action as I was trying to get into the safe Mode, but my computer wasn't allowing me to do so. So I did:
"the BOOT.INI tab, Check the "/SAFEBOOT" option, and then click OK" in the MISCONFIG cmd prompt area.

My computer got infected or hit by the "Trojan-Spy.Win32.GreenScreen"

I read that I had to go into safe mode to safely remove the exe files and folder.

When I tried to go into the SafeMode, it wouldn't, it kept coming back to the SafeMode, Start Normally, Start in last known... screen.

So with some reseach I did the above action, but it still won't let me into the SafeMode, and now it won't let me out, so i can go back and stop this action.
Help? I can't lose my files... they are all I have in life.

I have the Start-up and recovery cd's, but this will set my computer back to manufacture mode, which means I lose it all.
anything I'm missing. I just want to be able to boot back so I can get a RUN screen and go and and stop this.

Windows fails to boot. Can't even boot to safe mode. Help!

Comodo Internet Security couldn't start properly one day. I uninstalled and restarted. Then reinstalled but failed. It asked me to restart. I was no longer able to boot into Windows after that.

I tried system restore but failed. The error message was as follows:

I tried twice to boot into safe mode but failed.
I tried to press F8 rapidly or held down F8 key once computer started . None worked. They simply went straight to the "Startup Repair" loop.

Hello,I can boot into safe mode then (usually) last known good configuration will boot normally. I've found several threads on topic with varying results.Dell Inspirion 530 32bitVista Home Premium SP 2Problem began after a boot up resulted in all short cuts on desktop shrunken in size, a later boot scrambled their order as well. launched windows also became erratic (not launching in full size and in various placements on screen.)After fiddling with resolutions and font sizing options to no satistactory end, began re-boots. Generally after the load bar and vista logo/chime I'd get a blank/black screen. Sometimes with cursor.I tried various options in safe mode, repair showed nothing. System restore did not fix problem. Last good config usually (but not every time) would result in proper boot, but still have sizing issues. Video drivers checked as ok. I ran MacAfee and Malwarebytes no problemsDon't know if this is related, but I seemed to have developed upload issues after "upgrading" to IE8, which never seemed to be quite right.

My HP media center running XP Media Center sp2 (nearly the same as xp pro) was working well, then one day stopped booting. I can get the machine to boot using safe mode with networking and then tried msconfig and selected Diagnostic Startup to get a clean start. This still won't boot properly.

Note in Safe Mode I tried to run sfc /scannow but it would not run because the RPC server was not available. tried to run sfc /scanonce, but I don't think iti is working either.

Any ideas on how I can determine what the problem is? (I have run chkdsk, and it found an area that it repaired, but I don't know where that was.)

A guy I work with brought me a HP Pavilion Laptop that was running Windows XP until he shut it down and could not get it to boot back up. I have tried to get it to boot in every way I can think of:
Booting normally or with the last known good config ends at a black screen before windows splash load screen starts.
Booting in safe mode stops at a line that reads "multi(0)disk(0)rddisk(0)partition(1)\Windows\system32\DRIVERS\AVGIDSEH.Sys"
and when booting from the disk it stops at the Windows Setup blue screen that reads starting windows at the bottom of the screen after it loads the setup files, it never gets to the point that I can do anything.
Looking for any help that I can get to solve this problem and get this PC up and running again.

Really weird issue. My computer locked up and restarted when I was playing Battlefield 3, not sure why. Then it didn't want to boot up for some reason. Eventually I got an error message about a disk i/o error. I assume this is due to a corrupted USB that was connected to the PC. When I removed that I was able to boot into normal mode, but not into safe mode. I didn't like this, so I went msconfig -> boot -> Safe Boot. And now every time I try to boot, no matter whether I select normal or safe mode, it tries to boot into safe mode and fails.

It gives me the menu, shows a screen loading all the system files and then says "Booting in safemode - Minimal Services". Then my monitor says "no signal" and remains black. Things are still plugged in - tapping numkey makes the light go on and off on the keyboard - but I can't actually DO anything. And now there's no way I can see to boot into normal mode.

What do I do?

Secondly, I recently attained a virus/spyware/malware program on my computer and it took ages to remove. I used malwarebytes, superantispyware, avg scan, trend micro house call, hijack this, smitfraudfix, and winsockfix. Everything seems to be working fine now except when I do a google seach. If I search for something in Google and click on a link it works, but if I go back and click on another link it takes me to a lame site somewhere. I've scanned my registery to see if it was a problem with my hklm\system\ccs\services\tcpip\parameters to see if there was some hijacked ip's in there, but not was found. So I have no clue what else could be causing this. All my scans come up clean now. Thanks in advance.

Hi,I apologize if this should be posted in a different section....since I am baffled with this and do not even know where to start even though I would consider myself with somewhat fundamentally adequate knowledge with computers...I have a Sony Vaio laptop VGN-N130G I bought over 2 years ago. I used this generally for a portable station for my music software (serato) and I do not store files on the laptop, rather I have a external HD that I connect to the laptop to run the music software. I used the music software for one of my jobs as a DJ.One day when I went to use my laptop to access my music software, the boot up screen kept on going in loops--it would go from initial boot up to loading windows then for a split second a blue screen would come up then it goes right back to the initial boot up.I thought to go F8 into the boot menu to load windows in safe mode to see what is going on, but even that attempt was not working: even if I choosed to load in safe mode, after lines of script scrolled by and before it actually load into windows, it goes back into the initial boot then obviously to the menu saying "windows was not successfully loaded previously" with the safe mode options....Any help with this is greatly appreciated!!!Happy Holidaysmasaro

So I have been trying to get my computer running for a few days now. At first it wasn't booting at all, it would be a black screen with a blinking cursor. I have cleared cmos a few times, turned psu off, drained charge from psu, turned psu back on and got it working that way for about 10 minutes, then it crashed. Ever since then I can't get it to get running again. I think it says something about "fatal error" and then goes on telling me to boot into safe mode to remove any new hardware. Is it a hardware problem I'm having? If so, I'm screwed, too broke
The best I can get is the screen where it says run windows normally or run in safe mode. But it will just crash on either option I pick. And when I try to run from the dvd drive with my windows 7 disc it's just a black screen with a blinking cursor.
I'm not sure what to do...ugh I feel like it's something really simple to fix. I left my computer sitting for a few months and havn't tried to boot it until recently, so I don't remember if I put any updates on it or not.
I tried running system launch repair and it crashed in the middle of that, now it's just going back to booting to a black screen. Do I just keep clearing cmos, my mobo has dual bios, so the backup bios isn't corrupt. I'm using a gigabye mobo.

A:BSOD when trying to boot in normal mode, safe mode works fine

You may need to run SFC up to 3 times for it to have a chance to repair all files.

If it won't then you can consider a Repair Install.

However be aware that factory preinstalled Win7 is one of the worst possible installs of Win7 one can have, larded with bloatware and duplicate utilties that intefere with better versions built into Win7. So I would strongly consider doing the vastly superior Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

If you decide to try to repair you can also capture the BSOD file and post it up for one of our BSOD analysts as shown here: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums

I would appreciate any input about this problem.

My set up is or was dual boot Windows 7 rc712 x64 and vista x64 on 2 partitions on the same drive. Suddenly bsod and looped rebooting with windows 7 and I can't even load windows 7 in safe mode. This ocurred after a video crashed in windows 7. I could not load safe mode but I could load vista x64 reguarly(it was a fresh OS I never used). I did a windows 7 upgrade install over the vista when I meant to reinstall on the windows 7.

I had tried to boot from windows 7 disk and couldn't repair the old windows 7 installation. How do I get back to my original windows 7?

Some other babkground info. Prior to all this but maybe unrelated were dreaded nvlddmkm.sys errors even after fresh installs of windows. This error was under my old 32 bit vista right after I changed video cards and occured after windows loads or windows media player opens. My solution was reinstall windows thus I upgraded to windows 7. My orginal windows 7 custom install(not upgrade) still had some errors though not as many errors and I could boot into safe mode, shut down, then everything was back to normal until the next error. XFX(my video card manufacturer thinks it is a software driver issue and not hardware)

Here is the text file created shortly after my first bsod.

A:BSOD - Cant boot into safe mode

Welcome to the sevenforums! cjm18

I think one of the main problems you are having now with that error is from it being a generic error and not a hardware problem. That file name comes up a lot when someone is running an NVida card while those running ATI cards run into the same with a different file name provided. "atikmdag stopped responding" is also what someone was taking note on at nvlddmkm stopped responding and has recovered.

Since the first 7 install was problematic you may simply seen a bad install that needed to be replaced or something simply didn't go on fully. For insuring the best results you may not like the answer depending on how you have the Vista/7 dual boot set up. Which version is on the first primary?

If 7 was installed onto the second primary with the 64bit Vista on the first the solution would be reformatting the 7 primary for a totally clean install of 7 to avoid passing on the problems from the present installation seeing a brand new registry to work with as well. It would seem the present installation is loaded down with headaches you want to get rid of rather then to continue on with.

To do that go to start>run>type msinfo32>enter

When it is finished running go to file>save>name it and upload to us here.
You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

I have read here the thread about how to post and says that i should attach the dump file.Well i have it attached. (the minidump.If another is needed please tell me and i will do it asap)

Also says to use the sf diagnostic tool.I have it attached.Run it while in safe mode.

I have attached the mini dump renamed as 011313-21481-01.txt.You have to rename it to .tmp because the forum here does not allow me to uploadIf another dump is needed please tell me and i will do asap.

I also have attached the file from the tool bluescreenview in case someone is more familiar with.

If someone else need something else pls tell me and i will do it asap.

Up to now i have tried:
System restore -failed
Repair windows -failed (cannot fix problem)
Repair windows from install disk (no sp1) -failed (says no problem with boot)
Repair windows from install disk (with sp1) -failed (says no problem with boot)
chkdsk -failed (it says is in use and schedule it for next boot but doesnt happen since i get the bsod)
tried to upgrade my windows 7 to sp1 from dvd -failed because says that i should start normally and then run setup from dvd.
