Re: Blue Screen error 0x00000024


You have first to determine if it's a hardware or software problem.
Hardware, verify that your devices are plug in correctly and fitted. It may be necessary to remove the video card and memory, clean the gold contacts and re-insert/re-seat back;
Software, try running in Safe Mode and/or Last Known Good Configuration. You may need ti uninstall any recent updates/software before the BSOD/conflict began.

Hope this be of some initial help/idea. Post back how things turned up so we can figure other possibilities or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Having a problem with dimension 3000 destop. I turn on the computer and it will proceed to the XP loading screen then the picture will go black and won't return. Using AOC 23inch monitor.

A critical file needed for the launch of XP is missing. To see it can be recovered try to boot in Safe Mode. If you can the reinstall all the drivers and check every program for errors - launch them and see how they behave. If you can't boot in Safe Mode the the only thing left is to reinstall.

DELL DIMENSION 2400 ERROR STOP: 0x00000024, (0x00100203,0X82F898

You seem to have an error in the boot sequence of the Operating system. If you are unable to access the safte mode of the OS, then you will have to do a hard boot (boot from disk). My suggestion is seeing that you have a Dell, many times they will give you a boot disk or charge you $10 for one to be sent to you. Boot disks are not expensive at all.

Once you recieve the boot disk, go into the BIOS and change the boot sequence that it boots from your CD/DVD drive first instead of your hard drive (C). Then restart the computer with the disk in the disk drive and it will load from the disk.

If that does not work, you will have to do a reimage. For that you will need a Windows OS CD (XP, Vista - whatever OS you use). From there you can either have your data slaved over to another drive prior to reimaging, or if you dont mind loosing the data, just push in the Windows OS CD and it will ask if you want to over write or reimage, answer yes, and it will begin to wipe your computer and place a brand new copy of the OS on there.

I have a Dell Dimension 4500 desktop computer and the cpu had windows xp pro on it for which wasn't genuin windows so anyways I put in a copy of windows xp home for which was on the cpu. I deleated the old...

ok i had to do this with my mothers computer, when you delete a partition, you have to make a new one in its place, i say put in the xp cd, then say to create a whole new windows installation, when it asks you to choose a partition, delete all partitions, then make a new one, your choice to size but keep it enough to at least install windows onto it, then after that just reformat that partition and install windows, that should fix it.

Ialmrnt5 video driver error

When you first boot up the computer press F5 continously until a boot menu shows up. Then choose "start windows in low-res mode". This option will start windows in the lowest resoloution and hopefully it will boot up and you can change the resoloution. If this does not work you can retry the "safe-mode" selection. If that does not work you may have a problem with the on-board video or video card.

Dell Dimension 9100 Blue Screen 0X00000024,00190293,86FA5B30,C000102,00000000. I tried to reinstall XP from CD and it says unable to locate Hard drive. Replaced Hard drive and tried again, same message....

Hope this help you...This is in relation to what your error code means, you'll need to check against the list.
  • Error 0x00000024 - This problem may occur if there is a conflict between Windows XP SP1 and the display adapter drivers that are currently installed.
  • Error 0x00000004 - occurs because your computer processor detected and reported an unrecoverable hardware error to Windows
  • Error 0x0000007b - occurs if your computer is infected with a boot-sector virus.
  • Error 0x80004005 - occurs because the account that is being used to access the page does not have access to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC registry key.
  • Error 0xc0000005 - occurs because of memory corruption.
  • Error 0xc0000034 - caused by a missing system file (usually Ntdll.dll in the %systemRoot%\system32 directory.
  • Error 0xc0000006 - occur if there is not enough free hard disk space on the NTFS-compressed hard disk partition when the SIS filter tries to read compressed back pointer data streams from the SIS volume.
Another common reason can be malware and spyware that penetrate to your computer registry and started destroying it... that's why it's so important you fix your registry right now!
