Blue screen error durring instal of XP. Virus problems in past.

Q: Blue screen error durring instal of XP. Virus problems in past.


I have a dell Dimension 4600, which has given me so many problems throughout the years. When we got it, the thing ran great. This was a few years ago... A year or two ago the thing got a NASTY Virus, and ever since then it hasn't worked because of hardware and software problems. I pretty much decided to give up at that point and the thing has been sitting around collecting dust.

My dad thought it was the memory, and so today I carted the computer up into my room, set it up and put in a new memory card. It didn't help, My computer goes in circles when trying to boot up, until the blue screen pops up.

It cannot boot from the hard drive, and I get the message

"press F1 to retry boot, F2 for setup utility"

F2 takes me to the utility, but as far as I know I don't want to change anything here at the moment.

if I press F1 it pops up the same message.

So I tried Booting from the CD and Reinstalling from the CD. Neither worked and both of these result in the Blue screen of death. For the install, the blue screen would come up at the third bullet point which I believe is "preparing installation."

***STOP: 0x0000000A (0xCDCDCDCD, 0x00000002, 0x00000001, 0x807d600f)

WhenI continue the current upgrade I get "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL"
the Tech info is:
***STOP: 0x0000000A (0x0a130013, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x807d5ff9)

I am getting a few other blue screens but I don't know what the say, But as far as I know, everything I have tried has lead to some form of Blue Death screen. Any Ideas on how I can get this puppy to work?

I also tried to boot from my Laptops CD but it didn't work so its not the CD that is the problem.

Preferred Solution: Blue screen error durring instal of XP. Virus problems in past.

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.)

when I try to start my computer it shows a blue screen saying that there was a fatal error and needs to shut down. It will let me start in safe mode. i need help!

A:blue screen stating fatal error durring boot up

this is what happens with mine too, though everytime i go on windows live messenger it says 'beginning to dump memory to disk'. I didn't know what this was so i searched it on google. Try and type in 'blue screen memory dump' or something like this. You don't have to start in safe mode, i start in 'last configured settings that worked' or whatever it was called. Apparently what it is, is it just doing 'memory dumps' i can't remember why but hopefully you will find it. You can also search on here to look for the same problems, i can already see some to the right of me.

Hope this helpssss!

This morning my computer had a blue screen on it with "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down...."

I rebooted and got a chkdisk type message which stated "The volume is dirty". I made note of a few files it was deleting as it ran: malwarec.sbi, pupsc.sbi, and spybotsc.sbi

Rebooting in safe mode, spybot and malwarebytes would not open. I tried to get onto the internet but it won't connect - I am not sure if that's because I'm in safe mode or a problem caused by the virus. I am currently working from a laptop so my wireless internet connection is not the problem.

Attempting to start the computer in normal mode once more, I got a similar "A problem has been detected" blue screen message with KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR

I am not sure how to go about finding out what virus I have and am hoping someone can help me. Thanks.

A:Unknown virus, cannot get past blue screen

Hello, I don't think it's malware. What is the Operating system?? I will move this ince I know that.Chkdsk volume is dirty http://forums.techguy.org/hardware/794318-...lume-dirty.htmlGo to a Command Prompt and type:CHKNTFS /X C: That'll disable and clear the dirty bit.Then run:CHKDSK /RWhich will require a reboot and will take a long time to scan but will also scan for bad sectors on the drive.Then back at the command prompt re-enable the normal CHKDSK behavior by typing:CHKNTFS /DYou may also want to run the manufacturer's diagnostics on the drive to make sure its not failing.CHKNTFS info: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/160963

I started getting some evidence of malware on my computer yesterday, in particular the antivirus 2009 thing which keeps trying to get you to download a false antivirus program, and some sort of browser hijacking. I immediately ran all the anti spyware type programs I had including adaware, spybot s&d, malware bytes and ccleaner. This seemed to work, but today upon logging into my computer in normal mode I recieved a blue screen and error message reading:


STOP 0x000000D1, and a few more of these codes, I can type it all if that will be any help.

I can only presume that some sort of virus or spyware is causing this problem, since I had no such problems since this outbreak, and running antivirus programs in safemode including AVG has produced some results, but not yet got rid of this problem. I have also tried updating all drivers, and checking my memory by booting with memcheck (it showed no problems).

Any idea how I could fix this? Would really appreciate some help. heres my hijack this log:

can some one figure this out. I can not find any posting on the web about the following error.

I am using dell inspiron 9300 running xp pro sp2.
downloaded trial prevx from the web and when double clicked on the file to install, windows dataprotection message appeared to prevent instalation. Cpu was active, I quickly started system restore. The system rebooted with the blue screen messasge:

stop: 0x0000007e (0xc0000005, 0xf74e93c0, 0xf79d152c, 0xf79d1228)
atapi.sys - address f74e93c0 base at f74d3000, datestamp 41107b4d

The system will not boot to windows or access safe mode or any other mode. Tried microsoft article 307545 but the system started to go into loop and will not boot to any mode even though the blue screen is hardly visible now.

removed the cd and rebooted with no success.

tried dell diagnosis utility and run chdsk from recovery console no error reported.

Thanks for the previous help everyone, but I still can't get past the blue registry error screen when trying to start my kid's Dell Dimension 2400. I can't get into safe mode, a prompt, anything! Even Recovery Console will not cooperate. I had finally decided to try and reformat the HDD but I can't seem to even do that! Recovery Console wants me to select an installation, and as soon as I select C:\Windows, it's back to the ugly blue!
My tech message is:
***STOP: 0x00000051 (0x00000003, 0x00000003, 0x0000000, 0xE1181000)

The last sequence of numbers has changed a little each time I get there, but the other ones stay the same. No luck taking out the CMOS battery either. All it did was make me have to reset the time

A:cant get past the blue screen

When you turn your computer on start tapping the F8 key. If this works select Last Known Good Configuration - Enter.

I searched your error at Microsoft Knowledge Base. You try.

For me to get into System Recovery (back to factory settings) with my eMachine I start tapping the F11 key when I
turn the power on.

To call your computer manufacturer - Start - control panel - open System Icon - General Tab - Support Information
Their phone number should be listed here.
See if they will allow you to buy an Install CD
It worked for me. Been a long time, I may still have been under warranty.

For your next computer get an exterior hard drive and something like Acronis to back up your hard drive.
Even so that can fail. I have an extra hard drive that's loaded with the same operating system for
Windows XP and Windows 7
When my Windows XP and Acronis failed, I switched hard drives and ran Error Checking. Connected as a slave.
That corrected the hard drive that wouldn't boot.
Desktops are easier to work on.

Yes I have done searches to try to figure out a fix to my problem, but all the ones that I have found contain users who were successfully get past the blue screen long enough to get online or do anything as a matter of fact.

on to my problem,

whenever I turn on my computer, it asks me what mode to start in, normal, safe mode, safe w/ networking, and safe w/ command prompt. No matter which one I choose, the blue screen pops up and then nothing happens. It doesn't begin physical memory dump or anything, it just sits there frozen. I do not want to do a full system restore because I foolishly did not back up my data. ANY help would be very much appreciated!

Try using the Last Known Good Configuration.To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps: 1. Start your computer. 2. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key. 3. When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER. 4. If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/307852If this doesn't work and you have the installation CD for the operating system try using the Recovery Console.Note: You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order to be able to boot from the Windows installation disk.To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.2.

My mom was concerned about some error messages she was getting about low virtual memory while surfing the web on her laptop (Dell Inspiron 1000), so she wanted me to take a look. I ran the free Microsoft Live One Care Safety Scanner. It didn't come up with any viruses or anything, just a bit of temporary files to delete. A while after the scan, the screen went blue saying "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer." I tried restarting, and that message now appears before I can even get into Windows. I tried restarting in Safe Mode, using the last known working configuration, etc but nothing has worked. Under technical information, it says:

STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0x81EAA562, 0xFA3CA7E4, 0xFA3CA4E0)

I can't start up my system :( the information on the blue screen is unmountable_boot_volume and 0x000000ED

I've tried inserting the re-installation disc and nothing happens

I can't open in safe mode etc :(

any ideas what I can do?


A:Can't get past blue screen of death :(

hi, x. Did you make a note of what came after the 0x000000ED error message (were there any groups of figures in brackets). If you have a look at the following, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/297185, you will see that what you do can depend on the second parameter. You will need the disk, are you able to get in to BIOS and check that the cd drive is first in the boot order.

edit: I just realise you call your disk the re-install disk. Is it a full copy of windows, or a recovery disk provided by the manufacturer?

I can boot ok in safe mode and the odd time can boot normally but for the most part I can't get back in.

I was online last night and got some weird popups from my virus scanner that said scripts were blocked so I clicked ok and went to do an online virus scan. When I got to trend micro and clicked the link I got an error that said the exe file was not a compatible win32 file. I knew something must be up as I had used it several times before. I revolted and my computer kept looping. I got in through safe mode and did a sys restore and rebooted. Everything seemed ok so I did the virus scan and it found 5 threats so I fixed those and it required a reboot and since that I can't get back in unless I am in safe mode.

I also ran chkdsk and let it fixed an error there but I am again stuck at the blue welcome screen.

My Dell laptop is displaying the big, bad, blue screen we all are familar with; however, this time, I may be in trouble as it may mean permanent data loss...

After my laptop boots, it takes me directly to the screen, displaying: STOP: C0000218 {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file): \SystemRoot\System32\Config\SOFTWARE or its log or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable. Beginning dump of physical memory Physical memory dump complete.

I did the only thing I know to do--boot from the OS disc. I hit "r" to repair the Recovery Console. From the Windows prompt, I type "fixboot C:"
I then agree that I want to write a new bootsector to the partition C:
Apparently, the new bootsector was successfully written.
I then "exit," it restarts, and I start Windows as normally, and I get the same blue screen.

I've also tried starting in "Safe Mode" but get the same screen.

Anyone know of any options I could try without having to do a system restore--that'd be terrible since I have a few things saved on my laptop I cannot lose.

Thanks so much!

A:Non-recoverable past blue screen?

I would first try going to rrecovery console and at the command prompt type in chkdsk /r and then enter. There is a space after chkdsk before /r Let it run then at the command prompt type exit and get the disk ouit before you reboot.

Hello, I have a Falcon NorthWest Mac OS v.86, NT 4? With Windows XP Pro 2002 32 bit, is all I can provide about OS at the momment. I really don't know where my problem began, possibly making incorrect fixes after running Spybot S. & Destroy. I went back & tried Recovery, & completed process. This seemed to make things (getting online) worse. Everything was fine before scan. For some reason SBS&D started doing things I had never seen before, such as wanting verification of data change, for instance, changing homepage (http:// v/s www.) to start with. From there it just got worse, so unsure of what to do after making a few uneducated guesses, I knew I had better stop. Surely damage had been done. So I did a system restore which didn't help. Then came the Blue Screens. Tech Info: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0x804DA0A2, 0xF78588B4, 0xF78F85B0). I tried Safemode & got nowhere.

Hi, When I start my computer, after logging in the blue screen appears and says "please wait whilst we load your settings". This is as far as it gets, I can only use the computer in Safe Mode. I have done a system restore, but that didn't help. The system has been running slow and I have run Malaware and Spybot and followed the advice given. Before logging off yesterday, Microsoft Security Systems informed me that I had over 100 problems and I ignored it as I was running late and switched the computer off, thinking I'd "clean" it today.

Anyone know what the problem might be and how to get rid of it? Thanks very much for any advice.


Have you tested the hardware? Memory, HDD, etc.
A failing HDD can cause any number of odd problems, same with bad memory. Test those first then let us know what the results are

I have a dell xps 14z running on Windows 7. My laptop was running fine until I attempted to close windows Media Player, which froze up. I then tried to open a task manager which resulted in an unresponsive black screen. I used the power button to close my laptop and upon starting-up my laptop it went to a black screen which displayed "windows is loading files ". Then it briefly flashed the windows logo before sending me to a colorful blue screen with a flowery back ground and a moving cursor. Running in safe mode and trying the windows repair option results in the same ending. Any idea how to get my laptop running normally again, hopefully without loosing my files?

Now I can't get past the blue Windows XP screen that is divided in half where you click to enter and begin work. All the keys are frozen. The only way to turn the machine off is using the power button. I can't seem to get past that.

A:My Desktop wont go past a blue screen

Tryfe_lyfe Hello;Allow me to welcome you to the HP forums! Hard to help as you didn't provide us any details about the PC, the OS you're running, or the screen -- other than the color. We need the detail product number of your PC.  There should be a sticker with this information on the case. Also, need to know what Windows version your PC is running. We need that information because troubleshooting steps are different for the various Windows OSs.IF it's running Win10, did it come with that preinstalled?  If not, what was the prior OS of the machine and how long ago did you do the Win10 Upgrade?  And, was your machine OK after the Upgrade or were you having problems, and if so, what were those problems? Also, you say this is a blue screen ... so, does it have text on it (like with as BSOD)?  Does it have a set of rotating dots? Does it have an HO Logo? We can proceed once you provide the information.Thanks

We are using Windows XP Pro, no service paks, and it won't boot up past the blue windows welcome screen before you even get to log on as a user. It is almost like it gets caught there and won't go any further. We have tried reseating the RAM chip, checked the mother board for possible problems, and pulled all the USB devices. We tried using the windows boot disk to repair the OS, that only initiated a reboot and back to the above mentioned issue. We tried booting in safe mode...it still wouldn't get past that point. We tried "last known good configuration", still the same result.

She is an older computer, but she has always been our most reliable system and she does things our other computer won't do...we would really hate to lose her. Any help would be very much appreciated!


A:Won't Boot Up Past The Blue Windows Welcome Screen

Cristy, Do the following.

Your CMOS may be corrupt. Go into the BIOS setup screen and copy down all the settings as you want them. with the power off, open the unit and move the CMOS erase jumper to the clear position for however long the instruction book say to leave it there. Move the jumper back to the normal position and turn the unit on. The PC should report something like CMOS error -- defaults loaded and the real-time clock will be reset. Go into the BIOS setup and re-enter your desired values. Let us know what happens.

Thank you Jitaa

Our battery on our laptop is fully dead, so our laptop only runs off of wall power. The cord got unplugged from the laptop last night and of course, the computer went dead.

When I restarted, I got the blue screen with the message "***STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x8A5C7A98, 0XC0000102, 0X00000000)".

I have tried all of the options on the black screen that comes up such as Safe Mode and Last Good Configuration, but no matter how I proceed, I continue to receive the blue screen with the same error message. I have also tried using the options on the F8 screen with the same results. I have not tried any of the following options because I am not familiar with them: Boot Logging, VGA Mode, Directory Service Restore Mode, and Debugging Mode. I would be happy to try one if I had further instructions and someone thinks it would help.

I then put in the XP installation CD and went into the recovery console. I entered the command "chkdsk /r", and it ran to 100% completion. I have done this twice and I am still getting the same results.

I am fairly confident that we do not have a virus because I ran the Avast! Boot Time Scan two days ago as well as Malwarebytes and Spybot S&D in safe mode. I did this because the Wireless Router has been acting funny for about 2 weeks and I wanted to make sure that it was actually something with the router, not a virus.

I have not been able to get past the blue screen since the power failure. I am not an expert on... Read more

A:STOP: 0X00000024 Can't get past blue screen

Hi .Well...the good news is that you've already done what I would suggest. You've run the chkdsk /r command from the RC.The bad news is that...typically, if chkdsk /r doesn't fix it, there's not a lot that can be done other than an attempted repair install or a clean install something more drastic.0x00000024: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEMA problem occurred within NTFS.SYS, the driver file that allows the system to read and write to NTFS file system drives. There may be a physical problem with the disk, or an Interrupt Request Packet (IRP) may be corrupted. Other common causes include heavy hard drive fragmentation, heavy file I/O, problems with some types of drive-mirroring software, or some antivirus softwarehttp://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htmTake a look at 24, left hand column...and you'll see that it indicates that this is a problem with a specific file. Well, that's sort of true...it could be a problem with that file, but the impact is on the file system. And the file system could be screwed up because the hard drive itself has problems.When/if I get this error on my systems...I just do a clean install. There are various attempts by others to overcome this but I find that if chkdks /r can't do it, it's not worth spending hours on and still not knowing if I've done the right thing. Clean install (after a hard drive diagnostic) removes the suspense for me, which is what I want.Some users have reported that running the fixboot command after running a ... Read more

I am running Windows XP SP2. Today, there was a thunderstorm, so I shut down. When I booted up again, I see the classic "choose your method of boot" or whatever, asking for Safe Mode, last good settings, etc. No matter what I choose, even Safe Mode, I see the opening Windows XP boot screen, then it goes to a BSOD that tells me something is wrong with boot, and to uninstall any new hardware, etc. The thing is, I haven't installed any new hardware in a month, and things were working just fine 15 minutes previously.
I am using a Dell Dimension 2400 with the following specs:
2.4 Celery proc
768mb memory
40gb 7200rpm master, 80gb 7200rpm slave

Thanks in advance.

My computer gets stuck on the blue HP bios screen. Whenever I try to press buttons on my keyboard to get into the boot menu/bios options (F keys), they do not respond. I cleared the CMOS and tried it again to no avail. Then I removed the hard drive and voila: I was able to press the F Keys to get into the boot menu/bios settings etc. I put a recovery disc in my cd/dvd drive and chose to boot off the cd drive. A black screen then appeared saying "Reboot and select proper boot device or insert boot media in selected boot device". I pressed some buttons but the same message keeps appearing. Any help?

A:Cannot Get Past Blue HP Bios Boot Screen

What hard drive did you remove? If you have no hard drive then you can not recover or repair any OS if there no OS to repair to detect or hard drive.

Is it the HDD that you removed have Windows is installed on it?

Have you tried changing the boot sequence?

What kind of HDD is it a SATA or IDE type?

*** STOP: 0X00000024 (0X001902FA, 0XF7B2680C, 0XF7B2650C, 0X6F0AB6BD)

This is the blue screen i get when i disable restart on errors. I've replaced the hard drive and even swapped it with a good drive with xp loaded....still the same error.

I've tried running the restore disk...same thing.

Bios loads properly and detects everything it needs too.

Just after the bios i get a chioce window that says your computer stoped responding for what ever reason, blah blah blah. It allows me 5 choice, safemode, safemode networking, safemode cmd, last known good config and normally. If i choose any of them then immediatly hit F8 i get the rest of the options for boot up.
Every choice ends the same way froim debug mode to safe mode.

After you make your selection you get to the windows loading screen. About 2-3 seconds into it the computer goes into a rolling restart mode.

I have tried the following:

I tried every selection avaible:
Safe Mode
Safe Mode with Networking
Safe Mode with CMD
Last Known Config
Start WIndows Normally
Enable VGA
Enable Boot Logging

In my BIOs i have my CD ROM being detected first. Just after the BIOs info when the computer restarts i see the Boot from CD ROM for about 1/2 seconds and then goes immdiatly into the selection screen.
Help would be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried booting using Last Known Good Configuration?

If that doesn't work, are you able to boot using Safe Mode with Command Prompt?

Do you have an XP Pro MCE Installation CD, or can you borrow one?
