Press "F8" while booting up. It should give you an option to go to safe mode.

STOP: c000021a {Fatal System Error} 0xc0000034 0x00000000 0x00000000 HELP?!


This is not an easy one to deal with if you don't have some things like a boot disk. The error is most likely caused by something that was installed or restored wrong. The best windows option is to use F8 and select last known good config. Then if it starts you can uninstall any software that you added just before this error..IF you cannot do that then you need to be able to boot to a separated disk and use file utilities to remove any programs that might be causing this.

Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron Mini 10v laptop and recently I have received a blue screen error. The actual message says: STOP: c000021a {Fatal Error} The windows log on process system process terminated...


First Thing I would try would be to try and boot into safe mode, keep pressing F8 (about once a second, but not too quick) after the bios screens have gone, when you get the menu then select safe mode, if it boots into this mode it is a driver issue, maybe cause by something new installed or a driver update failed. You would need to try and remove this new device via the device manager in the control panel, and remove from the computer itself.


If not this and without further infomation from the event logs, the 2nd most common cause from this is Hard Disc Corruption, this may be resolved by a wipe/reinstall of your windows OS from the recovery cd/media (you will lose all your data on the drive, you may get this saved if you go through a IT pro to do it for you), if it continues to do it, there may be a corruption on the boot sector of the drive that cant be resolved, in which case you would need to replace the hard drive and reinstall.

Error code 53000:031e stop:0x0000007E COMPUTER WIIL NOT BOOT UP


hi there !

-boot to SAFE MODE
-restart the computer and press F8 and choose SAFE MODE then do the steps below

Windows Update Causing STOP Error 0x0000007E

-For now simple system restore should fix the issue, else uninstall this update by booting to safe mode.

-Uninstalling windows update KB973879 and hiding this update from available update is currently seem to be fixing the issue.
In case if removing update KB973879 doesn’t fix the issue, we need to remove remaining two updates KB970653 and KB972036.

cheers!

Will not start up and blue screen pops up with fatal system error


try booting into safe mode
tap the F8 key during boot up and select safe mode,
attempt a scan disk, virus scan (avg works in safe mode)
then reboot, if it works, fine no problem sometimes windows has a hiccup during booting,
otherwise if you have recently installed anything (including drivers) try removing them in safe mode and booting back to normal windows.

if all else fails windows reinsallation may be required

Dell 1200 Inspiron OS boot problem


Two things you should try to resolve this issue: -

  • Check that the FN button on the keyboard to switch from the Laptop monitor to external monitor has not been enabled - these are usually 3 state switches (Laptop screen ON, External screen ON, Both ON) it is really easy to accidentally hit this without realizing.
  • If this works there is no need to try the second option.
OR
  • Try booting to safe mode - as the laptop boots up and you see the Bios summary screen depress the F8 button and you should receive a screen containing several options.
  • Select the option to Boot to safe mode.
  • If the laptop boots up ok then login to XP, don't be alarmed at the change in screen resolution.
  • Right-click My Computer on the desktop and select Properties - Hardware - Device manager
  • In the tree-view containing the different hardware select Display Adapters you should see your graphics card in there
  • Right-click and select Scan for Hardware Changes if it is ok the close and reboot as normal
  • If there is a problem here it implies the driver is somehow corrupted and may need re-installing from the disk that came with the laptop.
