Blue screen problem on my HP smart touch iq 770 list of solutions


A Blue Screen of Death (BSOD), also called a STOP Error, will appear when an issue is so serious that Windows must stop completely.
  1. The most important Blue Screen of Death troubleshooting step you can take is to ask yourself what you just did.
    Did you just install a new program or a piece of hardware, update a driver, install an update, etc.? If so, there's a very good chance that the change you made caused the BSOD.
    Undo the change you made and test again for the STOP Error. Depending on what change you made, some solutions might include:
  2. Verify that a minimum amount of free space is available on your Windows partition. Blue Screens of Death and other serious issues, like data corruption, can occur if there's not enough free space on your primary partition used for the Windows operating system.
    Note: Microsoft recommends that you maintain at least 100MB of free space but I regularly see problems with free space that low. I usually advise Windows users to keep at least 15% of a drive's capacity free at all times.
  3. Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death, especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
    Important: Make sure your virus scanning software is completely up to date and that it's configured to scan the MBR and boot sector.
  4. Apply all available Windows service packs and other updates. Microsoft regularly releases patches and service packs for their operating systems that may contain fixes for the cause of your BSOD.
  5. Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
  6. Check the System and Application logs in Event Viewer (7/Vista ' XP) for errors or warnings that might provide more clues on the cause of the BSOD.
  7. Return hardware settings to default in Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so, the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set to default. Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause a Blue Screen of Death.
  8. Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
    Note: If you've made several customizations to your BIOS settings and don't wish to load the default ones then at least try returning clock speed, voltage settings, and BIOS memory options to their default settings and see if that fixes the STOP error.
  9. Make sure all internal cables, cards, and other components are installed and seated properly. Hardware that's not firmly in place can cause a Blue Screen of Death so try reseating the following and then test for the STOP message again:

When i am trying to instaling win xp .getting a error message like stop 0x00000007B in a blue screen


hello Shameeralipk,

The most popular Blue Screen of Death error in Windows is the STOP 0x0000007B error, sometimes called the 0x7b error or the "INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE" BSOD.

This BSOD (which is actually the common name for a STOP Error) could mean that there's a serious hardware problem with a hard drive controller, a driver issue, or even a boot sector virus.

My Acer netbook will not boot all the way. The screen showing that Windows XP is starting shows up, but then it stops at the screen that asks me whether I want to go into safe mode. I tried pressing F8 and...


Hi, STOP Error 0x00000073: CONFIG_LIST_FAILED STOP error 0x73 means that one of the top-level registry keys, also known as core system hives, cannot be linked in the registry tree. STOP code 0x00000073 may also display "CONFIG_LIST_FAILED" on the same STOP message.
This can be either SAM, SECURITY, SOFTWARE or DEFAULT. One common reason for this to happen is if you are out of disk space on the system drive (in which case param 2 is 0xC000017D - STATUS_NO_LOG_SPACE)
This is a serious situation. What has happened to the PC? Was there a power failure? Sudden restart? I cannot say exactly that this is the problem. We have to analyze further.
Here are some steps and information to help you.
First of all make sure you have ENOUGH DISK SPACE in your SYSTEM PARTITION (Volume). STATUS_NO_LOG_SPACE means that logs and hive enumeration is not possible due to lack of the space. System drives has page files on it as well so First thing you have to do is to save some SPACE. If you have Windows DVD (or CDs - use CD1) just insert it and boot from CD/DVD. Go to Recovery Mode (Key is R). In the recovery mode Type DIR. If you receive an Error you have to type chkdsk PartitionName: /f /r As an example if your system drive is C that would be chkdsk C: /f /r ( Spaces between C and /, /f and /r ) Then the disk will be checked for bad sectors. Partition table will be fixed to normal.
If you do not receive an error and if you could see the files: Delete some files using DELETE command. (Use with caution - Try delete ? or delete /? for a list of OPTIONS). Create some space (If you use Vista make sure you have at least 1GB Empty Space. A calculation. You have to have at least 1GB + Space for the Page File. Page file uses 1.5 x your RAM Size GB space.). Then Boot the machine and check. That should work.

I am using G60 T HP LAPTOP. NOW I AM UNABLE TO GET THE DESKTOP IN MY LAPTOP WHEREAS IT SHOWS TOTAL BLUE SCREEN


Try repeatedly pressing F8 whilst it is booting and using the safe mode option.

If it boots ok then un-install any recent software changes and try to re-boot normally again.

bsod (blue screen of death) can be cause by many things but there is usually some form of error message either just before or during a bsod.

That complete message would be most useful in diagnosing any further issues you may have.
