Acer ZG5 lsass.exe

I have a problem with my computer it was fine until two days ago I turned it on and it booted up normally, I got to the log in screen and before I could log in a box pop up saying "lsass.exe insufficent system resources exist to complete the API'' so I tried to go into safe mode it wouldn't let me go into it or any other mode. And it keep restarting and saying the same thing again and then this Blue screen came up. I researched it online and found out it was called "The Blue Screen of Death" Then I tried pressing ALT and F10 to get to the recovery screen and that didnt work either. I don't have a CD rom on my laptop because it wasn't made with one so I cant put the recovery CD in it. I had this problem before and I know that this is not a virus.....please help I have no idea what else I can do. Is there a way I can hook up my laptop to another computer that has a CD rom and use the recovery Cd through the computer to help fix my laptop like that?

Use another computer to copy the files from the CD over to a USB flash drive, if you have got one. Then start up you Acer and go into the BIOS settings (press F1,F2 or DEL a few times before the windows logo appears) Then go to boot device priority or something similar, and choose the priority to boot from a USB HDD higher than your Hard drive. Just to be sure, put it as number one. Save the settings and exit, and restart your computer with the USB flash drive with the files inside in your computer.

    -Are you sure you did the right thing in solution #1?
    -Does the screen turn black with the blinking dash (is it a cursor, by the way?) immediately after you push the boot/start/on button? Or are you able to go into BIOS settings and so on?
    -This is only when the flash drive is connected?
    -If you are able to go into the BIOS settings, what options do you have (resembling USB options)?

The screen is black with a blinking dash while you copy the files over to your USB flash drive or when you boot with the flash drive?

    Ok, then choose USB FDD as the first on the boot sequence/order. If that doesn't do it, I'm afraid I can't support you any further.

You can download the Hiren disk and boot up your computer from it and run the malwarebytes program. If you get a stupid message saying that it will not work, ignore and run it.

Google search for "Hirens.BootCD.15.2"

You have unfortunately picked up a copy of the old lsass virus. This was someone's idea of a funny virus in as much as it would just keep giving you the countdown and shutting your computer down. If you have an anti-virus program installed on your computer what you can do is boot your computer into safe mode (this can be accomplished by pressing F8 during your computers bootup. On the menu that appears choose to boot in safe mode), and then running a complete scan on your entire hard drive. By booting the computer in Safe Mode all of the extra programs that normally load will not do so. Once your scan is complete, and you have deleted all of the infected files, you should then be able to boot your computer into the regular Windows program.

Thank you for the opportunity to assist you in resolving your issue. Should you need further information or assistance please do not hesitate to let us know.

How to fix lsass.exe error


hello

for a simple fix, try this -- if not go to the next step

From your post, I understand that you cannot manage to boot or logon into Windows.
lsass.exe is a favorite target of viruses, and it's likely that a virus has destroyed lsass.exe while trying to infect your machine.
If you can boot into Safe mode (F8 during the boot), restore your system to an earlier system restore point. Then scan your disk using several anti-virus programs.
If you can't boot into Safe mode, try to boot into the Last Known Good Configuration (using F8).

If that also doesn't work, you should --follow these steps

How do you perform a reinstallation of Windows XP, sometimes called a repair installation?
Configure your computer to start from the CD-ROM drive. For more information about how to do this, refer to your computer's documentation or contact your computer manufacturer. Then insert your Windows XP Setup CD, and restart your computer.
1.
When the Press any key to boot from CD message is displayed on your screen, press a key to start your computer from the Windows XP CD.
2.
Press ENTER when you see the message To setup Windows XP now, and then press ENTER displayed on the Welcome to Setup screen.
3.
Do not choose the option to press R to use the Recovery Console.
4.
In the Windows XP Licensing Agreement, press F8 to agree to the license agreement.
5.
Make sure that your current installation of Windows XP is selected in the box, and then press R to repair Windows XP.
6.
Follow the instructions on the screen to complete Setup.


If you still have the lsass.exe error and your Windows keep restarting or you can't even open Windows anymore, its because the error has a small problem in the lsass.exe file itself. This is not a hard issue to rectify . In fact, it isn't really that hard to fix.

To get this problem fixed, you need to repair the lsass.exe file by getting a PC repair program. This program will scan your computer to detect the error and to repair it. Also, it will allow you to recover files that are missing and it will repair or delete the files that are causing problems to your computer.
This PC Repair Program will work- The PC REPAIRING PROGRAM works by an automated process. First of all you will have to start the scanning process while using this program. Once the scan is done, you will get a list of troubleshooting files.
It will also show the lsass.exe error file. Once you've spotted this file, you simply select the category and you press the repair problem button and it will start to repair the lsass.exe file. Once the repairs are done, you simply restart your PC and it's fixed.
This program will not damage any of your software programs already installed. It even allows you to create a backup file from your hard drive.
This software tool will also help you to detect other problems like viruses, worms, cookies and even pop-ups. This way, your computer will be cleaner and faster then before.

So, to repair the lsass.exe error you will need to get the Registry Easy program so you can start a scan, detect the lsass.exe file it's problem and start repairing it.

lsass.exe is probably located in the folder C:\Windows\System32. Known file sizes on Windows XP are 7k-33k bytes long .space.gif
It is a Windows core system file. The program is not visible. File lsass.exe is a trustworthy file from Microsoft. Program listens for or sends data on open ports to LAN or Internet. Therefore the technical security rating is 9% dangerous.

lsass.exe is harmless and if u kill it, it's likely to reboot or revert to welcome screen. two famous viruses are lsass.exe begining with an "I" or ending in triple "s"

lsass is a legitimate Windows object for user authentication but it is vulnerable to the sasser virus and can be HiJacked. Someone please clean up this place as at least half of the entries are worthless. it may be a trojan (form of virus) named SASSER

please rate me with 4 thimbs up

Running WinXP (has service pack 3) When I turn on my laptop, I get an "lsass.exe" application error. When I reboot and try to run in safe mode, the same error pops up. Ran a diagnostic test in and received...


Hi, this might help you:

try to use system repair to go back if able to.
or try to deinstall the service pack.

also an option but not a guaranteed solution:
maybe due to long period of use your pc needs a cleanup, so i can advice you a freeware like ccleaner.
go to ccleaner.com, doznload it at 'downloads'from filehippo.com (their official download link), and check it out. could be that it just a bit of a mess that slows every pc down or gives you problems once in a while....

I hope this is useful, and greets.

Geforce 6800GT conflict with windows xp pro


Have you run a virus or spyware scan of your machine? Is your virus and spyware up to date? While running @ 640x480 does it exibit any other errors? lsass.exe is a system process of the Microsoft Windows security mechanisms. It specifically deals with local security and login policies. This program is important for the stable and secure running of your computer and should not be terminated. Note: lsass.exe is a process which is registered as a trojan. This Trojan allows attackers to access your computer from remote locations, stealing passwords, Internet banking and personal data. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system. Note: lsass.exe is registered as a downloader. This process usually comes bundled with a virus or spyware and its main role is to do nothing other than download other viruses/spyware to your computer. This process is a security risk and should be removed from your system. DON'T REMOVE THE LSASS.EXE let a virus/ spyware program determine if its good or bad. http://www.filehippo.com you can download virus cleaner (avast is my favorite virus protection) windows defender, spybot S&D, AdAware, HighJack This to clean the machine. Then download and install the latest drivers from here: http://www.nvidia.com/content/drivers/drivers.asp Driver Installation Hints * "Download Accelerator" utilities should be disabled when downloading any drivers. * Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly. * Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove. Get back to me if none of that works. Good Luck, Tim
