    I was just working while connected to the net. The error message mentions video adapter but I do not have the time to read properly before the screen changed.

    Have you updated a Graphics Adapter? Take a look at the link I posted. If it has only happened once, I would not be overly concerned.

    It may be just a software glitch, it may never rear it's ugly head again, but then again?

  • Frank Mesak Dec 07, 2012

    Is the laptop overheating? Getting sufficent air flow? Have you cleaned the fan and vents? Have you done a Memory Diagnostic? Did you notice, when you get the BSOD what the fault is? Have you changed/upgraded any hardware/software, BIOS, Registry Editor?

SOURCE: zd8000 wont boot up

try to get into SAFE mode... tap F8 repeatedly when you first power on. You should get a safe mode boot menu, select last known good profile and press enter.

If this does not work reboot go into SAFE mode and select Safe Mode from menu and see if it will boot up.

You may get a pop up to use system restore, say yes, select restore to an earlier date (or similar) then use the calander to select a restore date that is PRIOR to the problem starting.

If this does not work boot to safe mode again and say NO (cancel) to use system restore and see if you can get to the desktop

post back results for further troubleshooting

SOURCE: Screen divided into 2 mirrored sections.

This sounds like a hard drive failure. You can press f8 to enter safe mode with networking during post. If it boots to windows,then go online & download the video driver from nvidia,install it & reboot. If that doesn't work,try re-formatting. If it won't do that then try a new hard drive. I have the software needed to test the hard drive,but it's for commercial use only. This is the back yard method.

Look carefully at the hard drive that you are replacing. When you take it out of the [mine is a Compaq f750us] computer you might see, for want of a better term, a "STRETCHER" attached to the contacts/connectors, remove it. Put it on the NEW hard drive, put hard drive into computer. Try it again. I did and I did NOT get the "error" code! Why because the HD is now CONNECTED...touches the contacts..

Igxprd32 error


To run the check disk utility you will need a repair disc ora operating system disc. Put the disc in the cd drive and boot fromit. You want to get to the Dos Command Prompt (Black screen with whiteletters) and type the following command: chkdsk /r
Check disk will run well over an hour or two and you will notice thepercentages going from high to low, this is normal. Let it run tocompletion. Then reboot machine.

If check disk fails to solve your problem you might have to reinstall windows.Try doing a Repair Install that way you don't loose your data, documents,music, pictures, videos or programs.

In windows xp you get to the dos command prompt by selecting R for repair whenthe options appear.

In Vista and Windows 7 you want to get to the recoveryconsole and look down at the bottom of the window for the Dos Command.

Sir my pc has automatically restart and does not worked proprely they can give the fatal error plzz helpp me


Are you getting a Blue Screen error and can't read it because the computer keeps restarting?

If So, turn off the computer, then turn it on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see Safe Mode. Scroll down past safe mode and you will see an option to Disable Automatic Restart. The next time you boot up you will be able to see the error message.

If it is a Blue Screen Of Death (BSOD) error message, you might need a system disc.

Blue screen frequently appears, and it reboot by itself? pavillion g7-1070us


A blue screen often called Blue Screen Of Death, BSOD, indicates that something is wrong with the computer. Usually it is a driver that is not correct or corrupt.
You need to specifically identify that the BSOD message is. If the system reboots before you can read it, boot the system while hitting F8 many times per second until you see a black and white screen with a number of options. Towards the bottom will be one regarding automatic restart on error. Uncheck that option. Now the BSOD will stay on the screen and you can post the stop code here to get help.
I hope this helps. I do this for fun & feedback not $$$

Blue screen error


The most frustrating blue screen computer errors are basically caused by some physical faults such as faulty memory, power supplies, overheating of PC components, or hardware running beyond its limits, device driver conflicts etc.
If you see the blue screen and halts occur in boot process, and also notice some specific error message appear on your screen, this indicates a serious issues most probably due to inappropriate device driver or firmware .Blue screen is really an annoying issue and creates a lot of trouble to the end user.
Follow these steps to fix a Blue Screen in Safe Mode
Once booting start, select "Safe Mode" from the boot menu.
Scan your hard drive by running your antivirus software . If the program locates an infection, move it to your vault or follow the on-screen instructions. After program completion, if a virus was removed, attempt to reboot your computer and see if this clears up the problem. If not, restart your computer in safe mode.
Restore your computer to a previous point. Click on the "Start" button. Select "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" and finally "System Restore". Choose a restore point on or before the last day your computer worked without error. Finally Reboot your computer to see if it loads correctly.

Click Properties.
Click Advanced.
Below Startup and Recover, click Settings.

Now, the next time that you see the "Blue Screen Of Death", what message _stays_ on the screen? Write it down. On another computer, do a Google-search for that string, and read what others have done when they have gotten the same error-message.
