Re: Blue screen corruption error

You might want to reseat your ram, Also See if you can get past the BSOD by hitting F8 and getting into Safe mode with Networking. Once there paste this into a Internet browser:

Once downloaded and installed, click on
File>Symbol File Path > type "SRV*c:\debug_symbols*" and click OK. (nothing will happen)
File>Open Crash Dump>browse to c:\windows\minidump and select the file with the latest date. They are named in the mmddyy sequence.
Once the file is open wait and click on an option "!Analyze-V"
Then look for module name. This is the file causing the error.

Though lengthy, if done right this will certainly fix your issue.

I have dell inspiron 1764. Froze. Restarted, after loading from blue Dell Inspiron bar came up with screen saying operating system not found

Press key and the power button to initiate diagnostic testing on your laptop. You want to see if there are any hardware errors, specifically the hard drive. If all tests pass then your operating system software is corrupted and needs to be re-installed.

Dell XP restart problem

This error comes due to 1. RAM problem or 2.Hard disk problem or 3.Software/device driver problem or some times 4.Virus problem.
First you run the system in safe mode (pressing F8 at booting) - restore the system (start-programs - accessories - system tools - system restore). PC will be restarted and if it runs well then fine. If not again run in safe mode- uninstall few softwares or utilities, clear the temporary files, few drivers - restart the PC it may run well. If it does not run in safe mode the problem may be due to virus or critical RAM problem (main suspects, as the error may be for different reason). Now you format the hard disk and install your applications and drivers one by one and restart and check whether the problem repeats. Failure with the step you should change the RAM. With all failures - motherboard should be repaired and you have to give to the service center.

Blue screen on Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop

OUCH... Might need a new harddrive or motherboard. Does it even let you go into the bios? Maybe you can do a full reinstall to save you the dough.

Dell Laptop Inspiron 6400 - "Stop Error Screen" appearing

This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or a corrupt ntfs.sys file).

There are two ways,you might be able to fix it

1, If you still can access Windows, try to disable any backup programs, virus scanning programs or disk defragmenter tools. Try also to run a hardware diagnostics tool to detect any errors your hard drive might have. And run chkdsk /r to detect and repair any file system structural damage.

2, If you are unable to load Windows. Then you should try to access your ntfs partitions by making a ntfs boot disk with NTFS4DOS (freeware).

After you load the bootable floppy disk onto your damaged system, select either option one (1) or option three (3). If you selected option one (1), type chkdsk /r at the command prompt, and your problem should go away after the disk has been repaired.

Note! Unfortunately there is a chance that your partition is corrupt beyond repair and all of your data is lost. In that case, you need to reformat the partition to be able to use it again.

Blue screen with error message on startup

Most likely problem is a physical problem with the hard drive, but could be plenty of other things. Best bet is to back up your information (if possible) and do a fresh windows install, if you continue to get the message after a clean windows install, your hard drive is not stable, and has a problem.

Dell 1501 inspiron laptop blank screen


Have you installed any application/program prior to the blue screen? Most blue screen causes your system not to boot to your operating system anymore. It is possible that your hard drive is crashed due to a virus infections or spywares. Incompatibility and corrupted system registry may affect your system to have blue screen as well.

You may try the following steps below.

1. Restart your computer. After you pressed the power button to restart. Keep on tapping F8 key on the keyboard on and off.

2. Boot advanced option will show up on the screen. You may boot your computer to the following option.

a. Last known good configuration
b. Safe mode with Networking.

If Safe mode w/networking works, restore your computer to an earlier using the system restore features.

Keep me posted.
