I am running XP home. In early July I downloaded and installed the latest critical microsoft updates - which included among others - a cumulative IE6 update. Since then the PC went berserk! Main problem was that although I could connect well to my ISP, IE6 could no longer find most URLs, giving me messages such as "unable to find server" and the like. At times, the whole Windows would crash with the famous blue screen of death. Restore to prior to the updates did not resolve the problem This was a laptop (fortunately 1 month shy of the end of its 1 yr warranty) so I took it in to service. They replaced both the modem and the Motherboard (!) without resolving the problem. Finally, I took my courage in my hands and using Acronis True Image 7 which I had used for backups for
been having trouble with win-xp. In the mean time I ordered different software thinking it would be better it locked up xp. So I am back to the upgrade of the software that came with the cd-writer which was said to be xp compatible. Sometimes xp hangs on startup and sometimes I get a blue screen at shut down with some numbers. What would you all try a new cdwriter with different software? Where would you start? Thanks Sammy CastagnaDid you completely uninstall the old cd-rw software before you installed the new stuff? If not, I'd uninstall it, and the new program and reinstall the new program. Also, after you've done that, disable the cd recording built into Windows (right-click the drive, choose Recording, etc.). And are you sure you jumpered the drive correctly
I am trying to ressurect a PC that used to run XP (with SP2) until it just did not boot up anymore. The PC will go through POST, then I see the Windows XP splash screen with the loading bar, then a blank screen and just a millisecond flicker of a blue screen (reminiscent of the blue screen of death). No matter how many times I have tried to boot, I cannot get a glimpse of the text on this screen, but think it holds the key to my problem. I want to perform an in-place upgrade (reinstall) of WXP as per KB 315341, but get to method 2, point 5 and there is no "R" as suggested in the article, just a setup (install) option - with the warning that if I proceed, the current windows will be blown away. (Don't want to do this). Can someone tell me how I can reinstall if I don

. I left it on all day and in the afternoon when I went to use it, the keyboard wouldn't work. The mouse was okay so I did a shut down and connected the keyboard to another computer, and that turned out okay. So I rebooted my WinXP and right after displaying the WinXP black display, I got the infamous Blue Screen of Death. So I shut down and did another reboot into Safe Mode. Once again, I got the same BSOD during the WinXP boot process. It never gets to the log-in screen. So I tried rebooting again, this time using the "Last known good configuration." Same results. I tried these three options over and over again, to no avail. The error message I got was: Stop: 0xc0000005, 0xBF841D63, 0xBzzC1AEC, 0x00000000 Win32k.sys - Address BF841D63 base at BF800000, Datestamp

to put stuff in "My Documents" but I finally thought, "hey, this is not that bad an idea after all, even if MS did introduce it to Windows and push it as the default ." So now I can get to 80% of the "my document" data by using W2k Admin to (eventually) get past the lockouts, but for some reason I can't get premission to some of the rest ) Anyway, the PS, cooling, etc is fine.

Hello thanks for reading! I accidentally filled my non-system WD 160 NTSF drive all the way. I triied to delete some files, but realized I needed most of them. I then took the approack to compress old file with the disk utiity. After starting I realized because the disk was running so slow this was going to take days. I cancelled the compression and it seemed to start uncompressing files and Windows Crashed Blue Screen of death Real problems begin. I restarted my pc and now I always get a check disk screen before the desk top. It always says Unable to read the security descriptors data stream. Then it boots and there are several files that either are corrupted or the directory is corrupted and they hang Windows quite badly. Finally if I connect this drive to a linux

the software that caused the conflict - probably the CD or DVD software. Once that is done you should be able to boot back into Windows normally. Once that is done I would recommend you download from the hardware vendor the latest version of the software, and re-install.

Hi, I have bought a new computer, then I just plug my old hard disk into the new computer as a secondary drive. Next, I installed my cable modem, everything up to here works fine. But then, when I surf the net, after browsing few web pages, suddenly, my computer turn into blue screen and restart itself, why? Is it because driver conflict? Other programs works fine, how should I solve this problem?? Thanks in advance. AdrianAdrian, Sounds like you have the blaster virus. Have you run you antivirus software before connecting to the internet? Ritch

error: Blue screen always have to use "Last known good config" I have both XP Home and Pro installed. My resolution to get pass the blue screen of death is to load the XP Home edition. No problems. It is moving a little slower than before. After I shut it down, then I load XP Pro and select "Last known good config". XP Pro starts up. I would hate to do a new install of XP.

Sep 2003. Win XP Pro system worked for 2 months ok. All Windows updates and Norton 2004 anti-virus were installed and updated on a daily basis. After a reboot last week, the PC would boot as far as the Windows XP logo screen and then a blue screen of death. Checked and replaced h/w with the same results. I installed a new HD with WinXP and Norton (fully updated) and connected the original drive as the 2nd drive. After I ran the antivirus s/w, it found a Trojan horse virus on the original drive. Norton 2003 could not fix it, but it was able to quarantine it. Re-running Norton on the original drive showed no viruses. When original drive is connected as the primary drive, it still has exactly the same problem in any boot F8 mode (e.g. last known good, safe, etc.) I am
desktop and no taskbar. I tried system restore back to the day before the problem started, booting to the last known config that worked, safe mode and safe mode with command prompt. I still receive the blank screen. I was able to access the task manager and I clicked on new task and typed in exploree. The desktop appeared along with an error screen When I reboot the same thing happens. I tried repairing XP but I received the "blue screen of death" in the middle of the process. I had backed up C drive and was able to restore it but I still boot to a blank screen.

I use WinXP Home. I recently had a critical error (blue screen of death), where it did a "memory dump". My computer froze, and I restarted it. From this point on, it has not started. I've tried using the Windows XP CD- ROM, which automatically runs setup, but it just freezes when it gets to "starting windows ", I've tried using a Windows take out the cmos battery\use something to short the battery prongs together and it resets the bios. this worked for me in order to get my os running again. if you don't know what you are doing, i don't suggest that you do this. my os did install after. if you still have trouble then it is either the hard drive or possibly the motherboard. or a bad disk you are using.Good stuff. I may have to try that out.
you check with the computer manufacturer which upgrades you should make on the computer before upgrading? I have a Dell Dimension 8100 originally equipped with Windows ME. I upgraded to Windows XP after obtaining XP drivers for all my external hardware. Initially I was plagued with BlueScreen Failures. On advice from Dell I had to Flash my BIOS, but the problem persisted. Eventually I the box next to any driver where the provider is not Microsoft; hit Finish; reboot.
