    • 1 Backup all your computer files. This means you need to save important documents like essays, data sheets, presentations, programs, etc. You can easily store it to a flash drive or on a floppy disc.
    • 2 Search for the operating disc that came with the computer. If you have lost it, you can always purchase a new one for your operating system. Remember, in order to repair Windows blue screen of death error, this disc is needed otherwise it just won't work.
    • 3 Now put your disc into the computer and restart your system. It will prompt you to press a key in order to boot from the CD. It may not show up though if your computer isn't set for booting from the CD, so you need go into the computer Bio to change the settings.
    • 4 Now you will see the win xp blue screen error again with words appearing at the bottom of the screen.
      Press continue and hit F8 once you see the agreement document come up.
    • 5 To fix blue screen of death, pay attention to this detail for the next page. You will see a Repair, Delete Partition and Quit options. Push R for repair. If you cannot find this option, it should say Partition which is a part of the computer memory. Fixing blue screen of death was easy, eh?

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.
This post has two parts since its too long.

Wont boot up,black screen.message on screen says,invalid partitio

When you power up your computer, the system examines the master partition table to determine what volume to use to boot up the operating system, and detected invalid information within it. This is caused by an incorrect or missing active partition.
To resolve this issue, consider the following steps:
  • Boot up the computer with a Microsoft Windows 98 boot up disk or Windows XP recovery console. Select the correct bootup device before you do that.
  • At the DOS command prompt, type in: fdisk
  • Question - Do you wish to enlarge large disk support (Y/N) ?
  • Enter: Y
  • Now to check for active partition, enter: 2
  • Look under the Status column. The active partition is usually assigned to the drive which contains your operating system.
  • If there's no active partition set, enter the number of the partition to make active
This must solve your problem.

Windows program shut down Laptop problem model-no-XPS M1530

it sounds like the hard drive might be failing or it might be a software problem. Try starting in safe mode and running a full system scan to see if it's sometihngi n the software. If not go to the Bio's screen and run drive self test. you do this in bio's by scrolling with your arrow till you get to a tools menu and then it will say hard drive self test. Your computer then will do 3 tests to determine if you have a harddrive problem. If you do then you will have to have the hard drive replaced. If you have a warranty on the computer call them as they will cover this issue.

As with any blue screen, this is an operating system error in which a driver or program has overstepped it's boundries by writing into an unauthorized section of the memroy, therefore causing the memory dump. You will need to run a system repiar or reload with your recovery disc or operating system disc in order to cure the problem. Start with the repair, if the rogue still persists, then you will need to wipe the hard drive and reload the operating system.
