It is also called BSOD or blue screen of death ..it could occur because of recent hardware change, faulty hardware. Please restart your computer if that occurs again ..try to remove hardware one by one or just operate your computer with minimum accessories first and then add it later on whichever is comfortable to you. If that does' t work then it might be your harddisk too ..u might need to replace your harddisk.

Stop error screen


Error screen (or blue screen) is unfortunately common on Dell's (happened on my XPS). You will have to contact Dell customer support to fix this one.First thing you should do is collect all information you have for the computer; warranties, product keys, etc.Next, turn on the computer and wait for the blue screen to appear. On the screen with be a message saying (among other things):'Stop:' followed by a series of numbers and letters. Write these down, as they tell you what is wrong with the computer. Searching this problem number onto the Dell support webpage may also give you some results.
Next, call up Dell Customer Support and follow their directions, you now have almost everything they need. Their response will depend on the type of error message you are receiving.

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.

There are a lot of possible causes for blue screen errors, but most of them relate to the computer hardware. The cause of a BSOD error can be a temperature problem, a timing error, a resource conflict, hardware failure, a corrupt registry, a virus or simply a device incompatibility or driver error.
How to analyze blue screen errors The first thing to do to analyze a blue screen error is to check the meaning of the STOP error code. You need to stop Windows from rebooting when a STOP error is encountered. Once the blue screen of death is shown, you can check the meaning of the STOP error code. Together with the filename of the driver or module, this will give an indication of the error cause.
Another option to analyze the cause of the blue screen error is to look at the Windows system event log or to debug the memory dump (minidump) that Windows created when the error occurred. The event log can be viewed using the event viewer. Right-click Computer in the Start menu, and then select Manage. In the Computer Management window select Event Viewer. The information in the event log can be of great help to isolate the cause of the blue screen error.
Reading the minidump requires a bit more technical knowledge, but Microsoft has tools to read the minidump.
The most common cause of blue screen errors 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.
So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. 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.
If you do not have the drivers for all devices, or are not comfortable updating your PC's drivers manually, you can use a driver update tool to find, download and update all device drivers for you. Such tools will accurately identify your computer hardware, including any device causing an error, and automatically install the latest drivers for it.
In most cases updating or reinstalling drivers will solve your blue screen errors.
Other causes of blue screen errors However, if updating device drivers does not fix the blue screen error, there are a number of additional things to try:
  • Load the default BIOS values - resource conflicts and timing issues can be caused by incorrect BIOS settings.
  • Update the BIOS - especially after adding new hardware or installing a Windows service pack this can help fix issues.
  • Update Windows - missing updates, including service packs can be a source of stop errors.
  • Check your system - run a virus scan and spyware scan after updating your definition files.
  • Driver rollback - if you have recently updated a driver, you can use the driver rollback to revert back to the previous driver version.
List of STOP Errors Causing BSOD:
  • Stop 0×00000003 UNSYNCHRONIZED_ACCESS
  • Stop 0x0000000A IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
  • Stop 0x0000001E KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
  • Stop 0×00000023 FAT_FILE_SYSTEM
  • Stop 0×00000024 NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
  • Stop 0x0000002E DATA_BUS_ERROR
  • Stop 0x0000003F NO_MORE_SYSTEM_PTES
  • Stop 0×00000044 MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS


Here are 2 solutions:
Solution #1 Scan your registry for errors.
A Registry Cleaner scans your computer for errors in your PC's registry. Your computer's registry contains information about your Windows XP operating system, including driver, printer, software information. Over time, your computer's registry may start to contain obsolete data. A corrupt registry will easily slow down the speed of your computer because applications and drivers are loaded even though they're not in use. Fixing your registry of errors will not only prevent the Windows XP Blue Screen Of Death, it'll allow your computer to boot faster, open up multiple folders quicker. A listing of registry cleaners can be found here.
Solution #2 Process of Elimination
When the CPU calls certain functions from the RAM, or Random Access Memory, and the data rests in a faulty section of the RAM, this will cause the blue screen to appear. I recall a time whenever my computer booted up and started loading the Norton Anti Virus program, the blue screen error message would appear. This happens because the CPU is accessing data from faulty locations within the RAM when loading the anti virus software.
This method involves having 2 sticks of RAM. Remove 1 stick of RAM and wait to see if the blue screen surfaces, do the same for the other.
Through process of elimination, you'll find the cause of the Windows XP blue screen of death error.
Because getting into the hardware can be a little techy for computer hardware "adverse" readers, a simple 2 step plan is to first clear your PC of any registry errors. Then if the blue screen of death goes away, we would have saved ourselves the trouble of having to open up the PC casing and touching the hardware components

Blue Screen with various STOP error messages appearing.


This is a tough one to troubleshoot since there are several issues which can result in this error. Let me start by listing known causes.

Corrupt pagefile.sys file
Corrupt or wrong drivers for system devices. printer, camera, ect.
Corrupt program drivers, adobe elements, capture card software.
Bad System Ram Modules.

You didn't specify if you installed anything new, hardware or software but to trouble shoot this issue begin by download Memtest86. This will test your system boards memory for errors.
If your ram passes the test you might try removing other devices such as printers and its software. Testing the issue after each uninstall.

Last you can try replacing system files or performing a system repair using your operating system cd. If you need to run the repair option and need help just post back here.

Hope this helps.
