    I haven't added any hardware, I made sure there was nothing blocking fans, It just keeps turning itself off then on, and sometimes it just goes off!

  • rogersannett Aug 26, 2009

    Thanks so much for your help, but I ended up taking it to a shop and the guy there was really helpful and I found out that all was wrong was that it had accumulated dust inside, and after he cleaned it, it worked perfectly and like brand new!!
    Thanks again,

This problem is cause by some hardware components. just make sure all of your hardware components are fixed correctly with mainboard. or else, if you installed any new hardware options to your computer, just remove that & try to start the computer.
if you still have that problem, just let me know!!

My Acer Aspire 5315-2122 laptop after welcome screen of windowsXp does not boot and blue screen shows ***stop:0x00000007B (0xF7a61528,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000) and does not go beyond


For BSOD follow the steps below that might can help:

Check the cables of VGA, Mouse , Printer , Scanner and Keyboard for loose coupling at the back of computer box.
Determine if you changed anything recently.
The most common cause of the Blue Screen is a recent change in your computer's settings or hardware. This is often related to new drivers getting installed or updated. Drivers are software that allow your hardware to communicate with Windows.
Check your computer's internal hardware. Sometimes, a poor connection inside the computer can cause a Blue Screen. Open your case and check to make sure that all the cables are firmly connected and that any cards are seated firmly in their sockets.
This is more difficult for laptops. You can check the hard drive and the RAM to make sure that they are connected properly. Remove the panels in the back that cover the hard drive and RAM with a small Phillips-head screwdriver. Press the components firmly into their connections. This step is not recommended due to damage in customer device risk.
Check your computer's temperature. Overheating can lead to your hardware malfunctioning. One of the most common components to overheat is the graphics card. In BIOS post test the computer shows on black screen at start up the temperature conditions of computer box. To check it customer can restart the computer and on first screen top right or left corner will show the information of temperature. If it is more than 40 celcius then it is more likely to crash the computer. Reseat the computer in a more cooler place i.e top of the table and away from the wall for venting purpose. The malfunction of processor fan can also be the reason.
Test your RAM. A common culprit in system crashes is a bad stick of RAM. When RAM fails, it causes the system to become unstable. Open the box unplug it from the Slot Remove the RAM clean it for carbon and dust particles and plug it back on make sure when you plug it back you hear the click sound.
Test your hard drive. Run the "chkdsk" function on your hard drive to scan for errors and fix potential problems. A failing hard drive can cause Blue Screens due to corrupted files. To run chkdsk, open command prompt and type CHKDSK entre.
Strip your computer down to the essentials. This is possible on desktop pcs that take out all hardware including hardisk, keyboard, mouse etc and start plugin them one by one until error comes again.

10 reasons why PCs crash-You must know tip 2


2 Bad Ram

Ram (random-access memory) problems might bring on the blue screen of death with a message saying Fatal Exception Error. A fatal error indicates a serious hardware problem. Sometimes it may mean a part is damaged and will need replacing.

But a fatal error caused by Ram might be caused by a mismatch of chips. For example, mixing 70-nanosecond (70ns) Ram with 60ns Ram will usually force the computer to run all the Ram at the slower speed. This will often crash the machine if the Ram is overworked.

One way around this problem is to enter the BIOS settings and increase the wait state of the Ram. This can make it more stable. Another way to troubleshoot a suspected Ram problem is to rearrange the Ram chips on the motherboard, or take some of them out. Then try to repeat the circumstances that caused the crash. When handling Ram try not to touch the gold connections, as they can be easily damaged.

Parity error messages also refer to Ram. Modern Ram chips are either parity (ECC) or non parity (non-ECC). It is best not to mix the two types, as this can be a cause of trouble.

EMM386 error messages refer to memory problems but may not be connected to bad Ram. This may be due to free memory problems often linked to old Dos-based programmes.

Things You Must Know To Avoid PC Crash Part 1



Fatal error: the system has become unstable or is busy," it says. "Enter to return to Windows or press Control-Alt-Delete to restart your computer. If you do this you will lose any unsaved information in all open applications."
You have just been struck by the Blue Screen of Death. Anyone who uses Mcft Windows will be familiar with this. What can you do? More importantly, how can you prevent it happening?
1 Hardware conflict
The number one reason why Windows crashes is hardware conflict. Each hardware device communicates to other devices through an interrupt request channel (IRQ). These are supposed to be unique for each device.
For example, a printer usually connects internally on IRQ 7. The keyboard usually uses IRQ 1 and the floppy disk drive IRQ 6. Each device will try to hog a single IRQ for itself.
If there are a lot of devices, or if they are not installed properly, two of them may end up sharing the same IRQ number. When the user tries to use both devices at the same time, a crash can happen. The way to check if your computer has a hardware conflict is through the following route:
* Start-Settings-Control Panel-System-Device Manager.
Often if a device has a problem a yellow '!' appears next to its description in the Device Manager. Highlight Computer (in the Device Manager) and press Properties to see the IRQ numbers used by your computer. If the IRQ number appears twice, two devices may be using it.
Sometimes a device might share an IRQ with something described as 'IRQ holder for PCI steering'. This can be ignored. The best way to fix this problem is to remove the problem device and reinstall it.
Sometimes you may have to find more recent drivers on the internet to make the device function properly. A good resource is www.driverguide.com. If the device is a soundcard, or a modem, it can often be fixed by moving it to a different slot on the motherboard (be careful about opening your computer, as you may void the warranty).
When working inside a computer you should switch it off, unplug the mains lead and touch an unpainted metal surface to discharge any static electricity.
To be fair to Mcft, the problem with IRQ numbers is not of its making. It is a legacy problem going back to the first PC designs using the IBM 8086 chip. Initially there were only eight IRQs. Today there are 16 IRQs in a PC. It is easy to run out of them. There are plans to increase the number of IRQs in future designs.
2 Bad Ram

Ram (random-access memory) problems might bring on the blue screen of death with a message saying Fatal Exception Error. A fatal error indicates a serious hardware problem. Sometimes it may mean a part is damaged and will need replacing.
But a fatal error caused by Ram might be caused by a mismatch of chips. For example, mixing 70-nanosecond (70ns) Ram with 60ns Ram will usually force the computer to run all the Ram at the slower speed. This will often crash the machine if the Ram is overworked.

EMM386 error messages refer to memory problems but may not be connected to bad Ram. This may be due to free memory problems often linked to old Dos-based programmes.
3 BIOS settings
Every motherboard is supplied with a range of chipset settings that are decided in the factory. A common way to access these settings is to press the F2 or delete button during the first few seconds of a boot-up.
Once inside the BIOS, great care should be taken. It is a good idea to write down on a piece of paper all the settings that appear on the screen. That way, if you change something and the computer becomes more unstable, you will know what settings to revert to.
A common BIOS error concerns the CAS latency. This refers to the Ram. Older EDO (extended data out) Ram has a CAS latency of 3. Newer SDRam has a CAS latency of 2. Setting the wrong figure can cause the Ram to lock up and freeze the computer's display.
Mcft Windows is better at allocating IRQ numbers than any BIOS. If possible set the IRQ numbers to Auto in the BIOS. This will allow Windows to allocate the IRQ numbers (make sure the BIOS setting for Plug and Play OS is switched to 'yes' to allow Windows to do this.).

My acer laptop 4551 is blue screen after using for 30 minutes online


Blue Screen Error messages can have a multitude of potential causes, such as: Failed, failing or faulty Hard Disk Drives (HHD); Faulty or incompatible Random Access Memory (RAM) Modules (often referred to as sticks of RAM); Operating System (O/S) corruption; incorrect System Settings changes; Failed failing, faulty, overheating or overheated Graphical Processing Units (GPU - commonly referred to as Onboard Graphics Chips); Overheating of Central Processing Units (CPU) caused by Cooling Fan (CF), Cool Air Intake (CAI) or Hot Air Exhaust Vent (HAEV) blockage as a result of use of a portable computer on an inappropriate surface such as soft cushions, soft bedding material or thick, piled rugs or carpets; CPU overheating caused by a failed, failing or faulty CPU Cooling Fan; Registry Editing Errors; Page File Sizing Errors (Page Files are adjustable extra spaces on the HHD created and allocated by the System for essential Memory Operations that the RAM is either too small is size - measured in Mb/Gb -or too slow in speed - measured in GHz - to handle alone); Malware infections; Web Browser corruption; Device Driver conflicts, corruptions or accidental deletions; incorrect Device Interrupt Request (IRQ) settings in the Basic Input Output System (BIOS); Incorrect BIOS Settings; Incorrect System File compression decisions by a User trying to create extra space on a nearly full HDD; A full HDD with no room to store additional data; Accidental deletion of a cruccial system File; Accidental deletion of an essential Common File or Program shared by other Applications; Overheating of the CPU by the encrusting or layering of dirt, dust, grime, carpet fibers, pet hair, etc directly in the grille of the CF, CF CAI or CF HAEV, etc, etc., etc (as you can probably tell, I could go on and on).

Computers that freeze, crash (spontaneously shutdown an application, Web Browser or the O/S in mid-use) or Blue Screen, indicate a serious underlying problem that should be addressed immediately, rather than being postponed.

Continuing to try to Boot (launch the O/S) and O/S that refuses to Boot or repeatedly cycles back to a Blue Screen or continuing to use a computer that Boots successfully but repeatedly freezes, crashes or Blue Screens can lead to serious or, irreparable damage to vital hardware components or to the System Registry or System Files essential to the normal operation of the computer.

All Error Messages contain hints or information about the likely underlying causes that generated them. Since Blue screens also tend to result from only the most serious types of underlying hardware or software fault (hence the common, morbid reference to them as examples of the "Blue Screen of Death"), Blue Screen Error messages are amongst the most detailed, informative and educational of all Error Messages. Not only do Blue Screen Error Messages isolate and indicate what software or hardware issues might probably have caused them, they also propose a range of potential remedies to the underlying cause of the symptom itself.

The correct thing to do now (just one final time) is to use the computer until it Blue Screens again but not panic or ignore it and, this time, patiently read through the Error Message carefully taking notes with pen and paper for later reference, (this is important because a Blue Screening computer could well be on the verge of total failure), understanding the likely causes, thinking back about anything the User might have unknowingly done that might have unwittingly contributed to underlying cause of the underlying fault, and then carefully and systematically implementing each recommended remedy in the proposed steps in an attempt to undo any identifiable settings, configuration, hardware or software compatibility or malware download and subsequent infection errors that can be isolated by following the Blue Screen's troubleshooting guidelines.

If, even after considering and trying all of the above first, you still are unable to precisely pinpoint the underlying cause or rectify the fault, then please add a comment with a narrowed down list of potential causes, after having, by yourself, eliminated as many potential causes as possible from the long list above and possibly even longer final list, as indicated by the text of the Error Message.

Please include in any further comment here a brief list of the remedies you have attempted and the outcomes that resulted from each attempt (as you can see from my very long reply to your more-complicated-than-at-first-glance question, within reason, you will have no constraints of space here and, as a general rule, the more accurate, relevant background information you are able to provide a cost-free remote diagnostician and cost-free remote solution provider, the better the quality, relevance, accuracy and usefulness of the answer you will receive in reply).

Hopefully this will help you isolate, identify and remedy the underlying fault, either on your own or with a little additional guidance from myself or one of my fellow experts.

Blue screen of death. unable to download drivers. can not get to safe mode. cannot reload orperating system disks.


First off, note down all relevant information when you see a BSOD flash across the screen. This includes the error number and friendly name from the 'bugcheck' section of the stop error (see above), and any file names specified in the 'driver information' section.
If the BSOD comes up on the screen for a split-second before the PC restarts and wipes all the useful information away, we need to change some settings within WinXP. In most cases, it should be possible to stop your PC from automatically restarting when it develops a major error, allowing you enough time to jot down the BSOD error message. If you are using WindowsXP, right click on my computer > Properties > Select the 'Advanced' tab > and under 'startup and recovery' click the 'settings' button. This will open a new window, and under the 'System Failure' heading, uncheck 'Automatically restart.' Continuing on, attempt to restart the computer normally into Windows. If the BSOD occurred while booting Windows, you may be taken to a troubleshooting menu and will have to select 'attempt to start Windows normally.' If your computer starts correctly, continue using it and store the error information for later reference. If the BSOD reoccurs at random or irregular periods, see Section D below on troubleshooting intermittent stop errors.
If your system does not start correctly or the stop message happens again, reboot the system. When the POST (memory checking) screen comes up, press F8 repeatedly. This will bring you to the Windows advanced options menu.
In the Windows advanced options menu choose 'safe mode' to attempt to boot into Windows Safe mode. Safe mode loads Windows XP with a minimal set of drivers and no automatically loaded software. If faulty software or drivers are causing your BSOD problem, safe mode should load correctly. If safe mode loads correctly, refer to Section A below on 'troubleshooting software stop messages.'
If safe mode does not load correctly, and/or you get the same stop message upon attempting safe mode, it's time to try the 'restore last known good configuration' option in the advanced options menu.
Restart your computer, pressing 'F8' again to load the advanced options menu and select 'last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked).' This uses Windows XP's built in system restore utility to restore the most recent save point, which should be the last time you installed any drivers or other software. If your system boots normally after this operation, hopefully your problem has been fixed.
If you are still receiving a Blue Screen Of Death after the above procedures, or if system restore was disabled on your system, note down any new information on the error and start thinking. Did you install any new hardware or software just before this problem occurred? The driver information section of the BSOD may help with this.
If you did install new hardware or software, and you think you know what it might be that is causing the problem, this gives you a big boost in resolving the situation.
Otherwise, proceed to the advanced troubleshooting sections below. Chances are your error is hardware or system file based and will require more effort to repair.
Specific Repair Instructions
If you have a reoccurring Blue Screen Of Death or crashing problem, and can't use Windows effectively because of it, it's time to look at more specific methods of troubleshooting your problem. Depending on the results of the basic troubleshooting steps above, you should have a good idea of whether the problem that is causing the stop messages is related to software or drivers you have installed, or is a hardware or system file issue.
Essentially, if you can't boot into Windows XP safe mode because of crashes or Blue Screens Of Death, you likely either have a hardware error or one or more essential system files is corrupted or missing. If you can boot into Windows XP safe mode, but get constant or frequent BSOD's when running XP normally, you have a software or device driver problem.

Make sure that if you added any RAM to your computer which is a common cause for BSOD that you added the correct RAM for your computer and that it is equally distributed in the ports meaning each port for the RAM has the equal amount of RAM on each side (eg, one stick 1GB, and the other has 1GB, etc).

My desk top computer is always crashing and dumping, and receiving blue screen. I will I solve this? OS is Windows Vista Black Edition with processor Intel Pentium Dual CPU E2140 @ 1.60 Ghz.


It could be a number of things. First, have tried reinstalling vista and installing the latest drivers for your hardware? You also might have a bad piece of hardware causing windows to crash. I would start by backing up all your files, downloading and saving all the latest drivers and doing a complete refromat and reinstall of vista. If you are unaware on how to do this, then I recommend taking the pc to a good repair place and having them do it for you.
