    This could be because its not compatible or because the memory slot is bad, or its in the wrong position.



    I need some details please.

    is this a P.C. or laptop ?



    If a P.C., how many memory slots available, what is the size of the memroy sticks, what is the speed or specs of the memroy sticks?



    should say on the memory.



    Also, are the memory slots alternating colors like two are black and two are blue?



    let me know, thanks.

Blue screen with technical information: STOP: 0x00000050 (0xE579D868, 0x00000000, 0xF77E3E4C, 0x00000002)


  • Remove all USB attached devices like drives.
  • To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC, open case, and remove all RAM. Test one DIMM at time, one slot at a time.
Re-install Windows. Clean install works best, but all data will be lost.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

Sounds like you have a faulty memory module. Try installing the old memory or if already installed remove the new module(s) and try rebooting. May have to set BIOS depending on computer model.

Blue screen error acer desk top


hi friend the blue screen comes when there is a 1:hardware problem
2:virus problem
3:Installation Disk is corrupted
4:RAM problem

First, check your CD and clean or replace it as necessary. Your next step should be to test your system memory for errors with a diagnostic program.
To do this obtain the Windows Memory Diagnostic or Memtest memory diagnostic programs on floppy or CD we mentioned earlier, and use it to boot your system and test the memory. If either of these programs shows any errors in your memory, you have likely found the source of your troubles.
Chances are you will need to purchase new memory. For more information on faulty memory and memory diagnostics, see PCstats Guide to diagnosing bad memory .

A blue screen pops up something about a crash dump


sounds liek you installed some hardware the pc did not like. plossibly memory that is not supported or video card that is not supported (some thing that a core item to the pc operation).
If this is not the case, one of these core items is faulty it sounds like. Another possibility might be some corrupted software like the OK throwing up kernal errors (blue screens). I would try to boot in safe mode to see if it happens there. If so, you will either have a hardware issue or OS one.. try the repair installation to see if it helps any. after that is looks like some hardware swapping.. hope that helps

I cannot install OS winxp onto sata drive pc is Acer aspire x3200


Hi,
There could be two reasons for the blue screen either a bad harddrive or loose memory cards in the slots. Try reseating the memory cards on the motherboard.
Also please post back the Stop code you are getting on the blue screen

Thanks for using Fixya

IO1_Initialization_Failed error on Emachine


Try starting it in Safe Mode (hit F8 key at boot-up). If you see the error "Page_Fault_in_nonpaged_Area stop", you have bad memory usually. If you have 2 memory modules installed, remove one and reboot. If you get the error, remove that memory module and install the other. If it boots cleanly, you have a bad memory module.

Dell Dimension 4600 Blue Screen


Usually this blue screen appears due a hardware issue or drivers conflict.

1) Try to boot in safe mode (hit F8 after starting up) and select "Safe mode"

If you don't get access try doing this:

2) Run the OS CD and use the option Recover Console (R)
This will fix the problem.

3) If the problem continues, you will need to install the OS again.
