System Service Exception Error (Blue Screen) - Acer AX1200

All was working well with my the new unit I purchased today. Was configuring it to my desires. Uninstalled McAfee Anit-virus that came with it in favor of CA Anti-virus. Had to install the 64bit version of CA anti-virus due to Vista OS. Upon installation, it asked me to restart computer. Now I am in an endless round of auto reboots, safe mode error recoveries, etc... Any way out?

    Yes, it is. I was just able to get out of the loop - finally. Back "in" via a restore. Definitely afraid to test it again! :). Since I was able to get back "in" would that signify I had any hard drive issues (i.e. a bad hard drive) or just compatibility with what I just installed (i.e. CA anti-virus)?

  • ffmccathran Jan 02, 2009

    Well, I attempted to uninstall McAfee again and reinstall CA anti-virus. Same results. The fun thing is that Acer does not give you a Restore or Windows CD. Fortunately, I created one when given the option. Thanks for the help. What's the best keystrokes to get to the "repair" option?

  • ffmccathran Jan 03, 2009

    Thanks for all of the suggestions/solutions. I basically go back on via hitting delete when the Acer logo came up and then hitting F8. I then selected "Last Known Good Configuration". Once on, I killed both McAfee and CA Anti-virus. There definitely was some sort of conflict. I worked with CA Tech Support, but they couldn't help except to say that I needed the newest 64 bit version of their highest end software. Apparently, the one I downloaded - would not work with the software keys I had and they couldn't just provide me with new keys. They did refund my purchase, but wanted me to purchase the higher end. I have since installed another anti-virus program and all is working well.

Hi!
If you can select safe mode when it restarts press F8 function. Select Safe mode. Open the start menu and go to the add remove programs and uninstall any newly installed programs like your anti virus. There was a conflict of your new anti virus and the system. You might have been ask to restart the pC after uninstallation of mc Afee. I f you just installed right away the CA anti virus it resulted to conflict of anti virus controller. So it resulted to Memory dump or blue screen error. To resolve this try to go to the BIOS SETUP and load restore defaults in the system configuration. then reboot.

If still it doesnt work, try to insert your CD installer of your software then try to boot with cd by entering the BIOS set up to boot with CD in the first priority order. When the software is already loaded try to select repair option. do not press enter coz it will reinstall the whole system. Just press "r": to repair.

If it doesnt work reply to me to give you more direction...

If you can reboot to Safe Mode and select "Last Known Good Configuration" it will be best but if you can't then you have to completely shut- down and reboot with your Restore or Windows CD and select the options to do a "Repair"

I bought my wife this laptop (emachines G640)only a few weeks ago we've had a few issues at start up when it goes to the blue screen and the the screen where it says there was an issue and to start...


The stop error screen or bug check screen commonly called the blue screen of death (also known as a BSoD, bluescreen, or "blue screen of doom.

slasher_x_22.jpg
In reality, the most common cause of blue screen errors is a device driver problem. Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.
Often, if you're lucky, the problem will resolve itself with a simple reboot and you may never have to worry about it again. More typically though, the BSOD is a harbinger of trouble and you may find yourself faced with another and another until you throw up your hands in frustration... but all is not lost.

So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. This is if you are able to boot into safe mode (Press and hold the F8 key during boot up). This will ensure that all driver bugs are fixed and that all hardware has the correct driver. If you know which device caused the error, you can update or reinstall that driver first. The file name in the blue screen of death can help identify the driver. Look for a file with the .SYS extension and search for that file name. There is a neat program on the net that can fix this problem, it's called DriverFinder, you can get it here.

If this doesn't work or you can't think or find the corrupt driver you could use System Restore (If it is enabled) to go back to a time where you didn't get the error. To use the system restore utility, go to 'start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore.

slasher_x_24.jpg
Sometimes though the blue Screen of death can be caused by faulty or loose rame cards. Check that your RAM modules are inserted correctly and arn't clogged with dust.

My pc wont boot up normally, it has a blue screen show up but then it goes away before i can read it


The blue screen of death BSOD is set to auto-restart after an error you can change the registry to prevent this not sure if you can do this in safe mode but its worth a try you will at least be able to see the error.

Its a good idea to use MemTest on a boot CD to check your RAM for errors first then restore from an old image.

I cant down load any games it opens an error blue screen and shuts down


Your Operating System has developed errors (corrupted).
This leads to the blue screen apearing when you try to perform some processes like downloading files, try to burn a CD/DVD.
You can solve this problem by reinstalling your service pack.
If you are using Windows XP, i recomend Service Pack 3, download from the link below:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=5B33B5A8-5E76-401F-BE08-1E1555D4F3D4&displaylang=en

If this doesnt work, reinstall your Operating System. Remember to backup your data before OS installation.

Black screen after turn on


That "Blue Screen" is also known as "Blue screen of Death".

The problem is due driver compatibilty or unstablity.

Try to boot your system to "Safe Boot" by pressing F8 during startup.
Select "Last know good Configuration that works"
Check if it can take you to desktop.
Unstalled the wi-fi driver and reboot.

If the above procedure fails, again
Try to boot your system to "Safe Boot" by pressing F8 during startup.
Select "Safe boot"
Check if it can take you to desktop.
Unstalled the wi-fi driver and reboot.

Now create a restore point  and download the lastest version of your WI-Fi driver and installed.

This should work fine.

Otherwise Backup all your important data from your hard drive (mainly opearting system file installed drive usually C:\) and go for a new Installation.

Have an Acer Aspire One Pro (8.5" screen). It worked well, but today it started to give an exception error (wouldn't execute lsass.exe). Any options.


It may be virus related. The The Sasser worm exploited a vulnerability in LSASS to spread via a remote buffer overflow in computers running Microsoft Windows XP and Windows 2000. The worm is particularly potent in that it can spread without any interaction with humans, nor does it 'travel by email' like many other worms.

I would start your computer in Safe Mode and run a virus scan to see it picks anything up.

Stop: oxooooc1f5


The error "Stop: oxooooc15" is usually caused by the new vista SP1.

Try the following
Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>System Restore. Restore you laptop to before you had the problem or error.

Abnormal shutdown, can't restart


This is going to be one of two things. 1- An operating system error or hard drive failure resulting in operating system error. 2- A component failure or bad/loose connection that is shorting the system and causing the system to think there is an operating system error resulting in a blue screen. First, try to do a system repair with your recovery or operating system disc. If the repair doesn't take, then reformat the hard drive and install a new operating system. If you have any issues during or after the format and install, then the hard drive has failed and will need replaced. If the repair, fresh install, or new hard drive (if you get this far and opt to purchase one) are successful and you get a blue screen to the effect of "detected a problem and had to shutdown, check newly installed hardware" then most likely you have a loose connection inside the machine. You will need to take the machine apart and check all connections. If the connections are good, then you have a failed device somewhere in the machine, and will need to take it in for diagnostics. I know that the latter sounds difficult and rather scary, but I believe that you're going to find this to be a simple operating system glitch or failed hard drive. If you have any other questions feel free to ask, and let me know how the repair turns out.

You should go into the safe mode and try to uninstall or undo the previous work. Else use the system restore. But if it continues again with a blue screen error, then u should format ur pc, further if u experience blue screen error then u should note that one of ur hardware is damaged.

Thankyou...!!!
