    Did you try REPAIR option, on software side, getting software corruption to be patch by a new copy?

    You gonna need your installer OS cd. Then wait for the option Repair.
    Your problem could be driver problem commonly on video.

I want to remove win7 from my compaq cq57 laptop (intel core) and replace it with xp pro


In your case try the RAM part 1st.


Blue Screen Of Death


  • You may need to roll back system with System Restore (press F8 during boot and choose safe mode).
  • Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.
  • Re-install Windows. Clean install works best.
  • Test one DIMM at time. One slot at a time. To eliminate possible bad RAM.
  • Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

You need an antivirus program to be installed after installing your operating system. Do it in safe mode. If problem persists let me know.

Can not boot


what's the 1st thing you see when you try booting? it should be black with white words detailing your boot cycle. if youre not seeing this, its hardware.

hopefully your blue screen comes later, which means it's more likely software as windows is trying to load. I assume this is what it is since you see an avast error.

i think F8 is safe mode-- are you sure you're pressing F8 every second or two as it boots to get into safe mode?

what did you do right before this started happening to you?

Hi,

Blue screens causes your system not to boot properly. It could be a corrupted video driver, system registry or could be a problem with a hardware component of' your system. Windows update causes also blue screens and incompatible application installed in the system as well.

You may try to boot your computer to following option.

Last known good configuration
Safe mode with networking.

1. Restart the system. At the moment you are turning on your system. After pressing the power button.. Keep on tapping F8 key (on/off) until you have the message "Advanced boot option"

2. Select the 1st option: Last known good configuration.. Press Enter until you have your login screen. If it doesn't work you may try the second option which is the "safe mode with networking".

If the two option won't work, you may need to try repairing the operating system or reinstall windows.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.
