Most likely a driver error or bad hardware. Could be a video card, modem or NIC, bad memory. try some basic troubleshooting, Remove all but the bare esentials. Take out any add is PCI devices such as modems or network cards, sound cards or extra usb ports. If you have onboard video but are using a AGP or PCI video card, remove that as well and use just the onboard.

If it works, then you know its one of the things you removed.

put on in and boot, then another and boot, till it has that problem again, Once it does, you will know it was the last thing you put in.

Remove it and test anything else you removed to be sure.

Then boot into windows and try un-installing any drivers and then re-installing them before putting it back in. This way Windows is ready for it when you hook it up.

If you still have problems, then the hardware may just be bad. Replace it.

IF you are still having trouble or think its something else, let me know, we can try other stuff.

My sistam is not restore ... WHY???


This error code usually points to an installation of windows that has been corrupted. I'm assuming that you have no USB flash drives plugged into the laptop when booting, if so, remove these and try a reboot.
Then try to boot to safe mode (f8)
If this fails, boot from the CD drive by setting the DC boot option as 1st boot in the bios, put the windows installtion CD in the drive and go through the install proceedure, selecting the REPAIR option.
If this fails, you will need to reinstall windows.
To recover any lost files, after reinstalling windows, download a utility such as recover my files and set it to a format recovery to get any lost files back.

Windows does not boot up


This is likely your hard drive - this could be a drive error - in which case your drive is likely lost (and the data on it) I'm afraid. A technician would check the cables to your drive are ok. In laptops you can usually take out the hard drive under the laptop. If you can, do this, clean the connectors and plug back in. If that doesn't work then I'm afraid it isnt good.

Try this,

Go to Control Panel >> Device Manager, look for the scanner in 'Device Manager' under 'Imaging Devices'
Right click on it and select 'Uninstall' and allow it to be uninstalled.
Remove the USB lead from the scanner.
Re-boot the Computer.
Once windows appears and is ready toi use, re-connect the scanner USB lead.
Windows should re-install the drivers and tell you the scanner is ready to use................hopefully!
