Blue Screen of Death! HELP PLEASE!!

Ok So I'm pulling my hair out and need help!! I have a HP dv1000. I started getting the blue screen saying first ''Bad_pool_header'' but its been switching up. I tried completely reinstalling windows with the ''operating cd'' and I had to try and do it about 10 times. Because in the middle of it, it kept giving me the blue screen saying bad_pool_header. Finally I got it restored and now it is just acting weird.. I'm getting now ''irql_not_less_or_equal'' and ''Driver_irql_not_less_or_equal'' I'm pulling my hair out. I just want my computer to work! I've tried the ''chkdsk'' thing and doing a scan but it freezes up around 62% done...

    I have already came across that forum, and the problem is this;



    When I try to do the "last know configuration" it don't let me go any farther back than the day I restored it. So that hasn't worked for me.. Then, Well before safe mode was impossible, but now since after many tries to restore it I now can go in safe mode. But my problem is I'm no expert when it comes to Computers.. And oh it still gives me the same blue screen even in safe mode...



    Thank you for the Link though, I really appreciate it.

    I have done that and am in the process of doing it again. So If It keeps happening you think its the Disc? (sorry a little slow when it comes to computers)



    Also to my other feedback. When I go into setup at boot, what exactly am I looking for???

Yes, it is most likely the disk. If you can boot the system, go into device manager and get the Model No. of the hard drive. Go to the harddrive manufacturer's website and download their DOS Disc Check utility. Western Digital calls theirs Data-Lifeguard, Hitach_GST is Drive Fitness test. The easiest thing is to use the Floppy disc and an external USB floppy drive. Reboot the PC/Laptop, ressing F12 or whatever key to get into the Boot Other Device menu. Select Leagacy Floppy/USB Floppy and follow the onscreen prompt to test the drive. If the drive passes, use a drive utility to erase and write "zero's" to the drive, Delete ALL partitions, and reformat. Some of the DIagnostic tools will allow you to "block" acces to bad sectors, so know data will EVER be written to those areas, and therefore, no data loss in the future, however, this will cost you some, but not a significant, portion of disk dpace.

Most harddrives are easily accessible on laptops via a cover on the bottom of the unit. Replacing it should only take about 10 minutes. After that, it is a simple matter on Partitioning, formatting and reinstalling your OS. My suggestion here, is to visit you laptop Manufacturer and see if they offer a PDF manual concerning hard drive and memory module replacement, MOST, do. Click this link: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c00133452.pdf and check out the "F10 Hard drive check" feature that is built in to the unit. You "MAY" have to update it via the HP site, but it should work for you. Also check out this link: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=435618&

Hope this works for you!

I believe you need to press F-8 or F-12 on start up- this will allow you to get to your driver settings to make sure they are set-up correctly. I know it's frustrating, but your computer is confussed.

Good Luck,
Ray

Hi, maybe you can take a try of this rescue program called BootSuite. I came across similar blue screen situaiton on my HP laptop (win 7) and it helped me get rid of it and rescued my data back. It is an awesome toolkit that includes a boot CD and several other data rescue tools that help get your PC going even if Windows won't start or computer won't boot up at all. Good luck.

When I turn on my computer everything is fine and then I get to a place that says "start windows normally" etc... And then when I click it it takes to me a blue screen with memory dump and then it restates...


A blue screen or Blue Screen Of Death, BSOD, is generally caused by a corrupt driver or a bad software installation.
First, you need to determine the STOP code that is on that screen.
  • Start in safe mode, press F8 repeatably as the computer starts up,
  • check Disable automatic restart on system failure (This prevents Windows from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows to fail.)

OK, now the BSOD will stay there so you can determine what caused your problem. Report back the stop code and any information about a driver that caused the problem so we can be of further help.

Hello Mary,

You seem to be getting what is called, the blue screen of death. This blue screen with white text can be caused by many things and I will provide a link for you to read at the end of this post. After reading the reasons the blue screen of death is occurring their should be some links ( on the site i will link you to) to places that may help.


My suggestion would be to start up in safe mode.
To do that you hit f8 on the computers start up. Then log in to the administrators account and un-install any reciently insatlled programs. ( the ones you installed and after received the blue screen of death.

Restart your computer and log in the normal way. Update everything ( even your drivers). And of course restart.

Once you have your computer working fine wiht outh the blue screen of death then add the programs installed one by one till you find which one is causing it.

AFter that feel free to post back wiht your results and I will be glad to help.
