System Error 32 on my Desktop Computer

I was just starting up my computer when, in the middle of booting up, it said system error 32 up in the left hand corner of the screen. I tried everything I could think of to fix it, from re-installing windows xp on my computer to just restarting the computer. No matter what I did the computer just didn't get past it. Can anyone please help me?

If you have tried everything, including reloading Windows, look inside the case and check the capacitors on the motherboard. The motherboard is the main circuitboard, and the capacitors look like little batteries. There are usually 10-20 capacitors on a typical PC motherboard. A healthy capacitor has a very flat top, but a "popped" capacitor is bulged top and bottom. Sometimes there is even a bit of residue leaking from the bottom of the capacitor. If you have popped capacitors and you are not handy with a soldering iron, it may be best just to replace the PC (seriously). If you can handle a soldering iron, you may have luck replacing the popped capacitors. They only cost about $1 each, and they are easy to pick up from a place like www.digi-key.com.

How to Resolve System 32 Error in Windows Operating System?


System 32 error is the most common error which can halt the smooth work flow and make you feel dejected. Most of the people are still searching about "What is System 32 error?" why it happens? How does it affect? And what you can do to eliminate it? If you are also one of them then your search ends here, in this article I will let you know about the answers of all your questions regarding the System 32 error. I have looked up several forums, tech blogs and well renowned websites to collect the information.


System 32 is the one of the most important file hidden inside your computer which contains vital information required to function your computer properly. System 32 files generally located in the system drive C:\Windows\System32 in my PC (location on your computer can be different).

Causes of System 32 error:

26319222-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-0.jpg

Check for a corrupted Windows registry. The most common reason of System 32 error is the corrupted registry which can lead to computer freeze. The most common affected files are Config.nt, autorun.inf and svchost.exe etc.
26319222-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-2.jpg
Check for malware and other "nasties" on your computer. It can also be caused due to malwares which causes your computer to respond in undesired ways. Most of the malware enters your computer through spam mails and adware's.


26319222-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-5.jpg
Check for bad system files downloaded via the Internet. System 32 error can be triggered when you update your system files via internet. Some of the sites which promise to provide full version of software contain corrupted files or even are the Trojans which causes lethal damage by uploading virus on your computer.

26319222-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-9.jpg
Check for hardware issues. When you replace or add any hardware then it may be possible that it's not compatible to your existing computer setup which can create problem in the operating system. This can result in the System 32 error or you may hear different types of sounds during booting period of computer. 26319222-bxzhjmonsmllydp0qa2riq2g-2-14.jpg Check for faulty software update issues. Any software update of your computer can also lead to unwanted changes in the registry which inhibits your computer to function properly.

When start system show error


Does the system boot up? This does not seem like an error that would stop it from booting up, just an annoyance.

Click Start/Programs and look for the RUNcommand. You might see it anywhere once you click Programs, or it might beinside the Accessories folder. Click RUN and when it opens up type"msconfig.exe" (without the quotes) then hit ok.

When the System Configuration window opens click the Startup tab. In theStartup Tab we are only concerned with 2 columns, the first column which is theStartup Items and the column that says Command. You can put your mouse pointerbetween two column headings and it will turn into a +, then hold the left mousebutton and drag the column over to the right to expand it so you can readwhat's below it.

Now everything has a check mark beside it. This means that everytime youstart your computer, these items have to load and run.
Start with the first item listed under the startup item column and look at itand look at the command for it. We want to find the command that your system is having a problem with the script file. The command is C:\WINDOWS\system32\FAantivirus.vbs. When you see it under the command column take the check mark off over to the left next to the item column and this will keep it from running the next time you boot your system.

Compaq desktop persario xp non-system disk or disk error


This means that the system identifies the hard drive on your computer as one that is not bootable, in other words, it does not contain any operating system, or it does contain one, but the disk format is not recognized by the system. For example, Windows operating systems only identify two types of disks and that is DYNAMIC or BASIC. If a Hard disk has an operating system and has been converted to DYNAMIC, you can not start any operating system on it. Only BASIC disks can be used to start an operating system. Here is a solution for you... Get a copy of the operating system you are using and boot the computer from it. Press F2 when booting and go to the system BIOS where you are going to configure the boot order or the boot sequence and make the CD drive the first booting device, so that the system can boot from the CD. If you receive a message stating that the SETUP can not find any hard disk installed.... then there must be a problem with the Hard disk format. Remove the hard disk and connect it to a desktop computer as a slave. This will enable you to see the Hard disk as a removable device on the 'My computer" menu.Go to start, right-click on "My computer" and select "Manage". This will take you into computer management console, then select "Disk management" and this will bring all the disks and drives connected to that computer and all their respective information. Click of the drive that you just connected and check on the bottom middle column, the type of the disk whether it is DYNAMIC or BASIC. If it is Dynamic, then you have to covert it back to basic. Make sure you make a data backup before you do this. This is because the system will delete anything on the hard drive. When you are done, take the hard drive back to your computer and boot from the CD again and install a new operating system. You should be good after this...

Sounds like someone may have left a non-bootable floppy disk in the drive. Check to be sure there isn't a floppy in the drive. Also, when in setup, it's the boot order that you'll want to change.

My sony has systm error 32


Hi, Can you pls give some more info: System 32 error after POST before Windows or System 32 error, after windows partially booted? Offhand, if the error is after POST before Windows boot, it is a hardware problem based on motherboard built-in diagnostic program: you may have to check/repalce reseat/connect memory, video card, hard drive; If it is after Windows partially boots, then chances are it is a driver problem; try running in safe mode and check at which points it stops or hangs. Hope this give you some idea. Pls post/comment back if you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
