Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1: Windows
My son and my son-in-law both had windows updates and both of thier computers crashed within days of eachother. With both computers showing BSOD's I felt like pulling my hair out. My son has a laptop which luckily had a hidden partition so after four attempts and two days later I managed to repair his laptop and turned updates off and his laptop is running the best it ever has, However, here is my problem
My son-in-law has a pc, his pc is running vista ultimate and I have no back up cd's or a hidden partition. I downloaded and ran the startup disk for vista and got to the system repair, I tried repairing it, no joy
I tried restoring it using system restore, no joy
I tried running chkdsk/f, no joy
I tried running chkdsk/f/r, no joy
I tried smashing it open.....only joking (but seriously felt like it) lol
SOURCE: cannot repair vista
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (The error code, 0x0A, 0x01E, or 0x50 can also be helpful)
Faulty hardware is the most common cause, followed by a buggy system service, antivirus software, or a corrupted NTFS volume.
Disconnect any external peripherals, including the printer. If you have any internal media devices, such as card readers, make sure nothing is inserted in those slots.
Try running the Startup Repair from the Vista installation disk several times in succession. This has been shown to have a cumulative effect, in some cases.
Next try booting to the F8 safe boot menu again. If you get that menu, try the "last known good" option first.
If none of this works, I would recommend that you use your latest backup solution.
If you don't have backup or Windows installation CD, suggest purchase Windows Vista Business. It runs well.
