Blue screen error


The most frustrating blue screen computer errors are basically caused by some physical faults such as faulty memory, power supplies, overheating of PC components, or hardware running beyond its limits, device driver conflicts etc.
If you see the blue screen and halts occur in boot process, and also notice some specific error message appear on your screen, this indicates a serious issues most probably due to inappropriate device driver or firmware .Blue screen is really an annoying issue and creates a lot of trouble to the end user.
Follow these steps to fix a Blue Screen in Safe Mode
Once booting start, select "Safe Mode" from the boot menu.
Scan your hard drive by running your antivirus software . If the program locates an infection, move it to your vault or follow the on-screen instructions. After program completion, if a virus was removed, attempt to reboot your computer and see if this clears up the problem. If not, restart your computer in safe mode.
Restore your computer to a previous point. Click on the "Start" button. Select "All Programs", "Accessories", "System Tools" and finally "System Restore". Choose a restore point on or before the last day your computer worked without error. Finally Reboot your computer to see if it loads correctly.

After installing a modem driver in my Dell Optiplex360 XP, it detect the modem and when i try to access the modem through device manager or uninstall from control panel the system hault. and a message like...


Did you download the driver from the DELL site?
If you use your resource CD, it will detect the hardware in your system correctly.

Start the system in safe mode (F8 at startup
Go to Device Manager (Control panel, device manager)
Remove the modem from the list
Now insert the resource CD and after it loads, it will pout check marks next to each item that is found in your system
Select the modem and install the driver.

If you do not have the resource cd
Boot to safe mode
Start the device manager
Remove the modem
Install the driver from the dell website
Reboot

If these do not work, the modem may be at fault.
If it is the modem that came with the machine, it could be going bad.
If it is new or different modem, it probably is incompatible with your system.

For no apparent reason my laptop will not now work. I turn it on and it goes through the setup system, it gives a message that it was not shut down properly, I click on start in safe mode and nothing...


First run disganostics on the system and see if you get a failure code. (Fn +Power Button on Dells) of from the F12 menu, or Boot to Resource CD. If those pass, boot to a windows XP CD, press R to enter Recovery Console, and run the COMMAND CHKDSK /R then see if the system will boot to windows. If that fails, you'll like need to reinstall Windows

When I turn on starts shows microsoft windows then goess to startup repairs


Maybe to start the computer in Safe Mode will work, maybe system restore will work from there. Basically to do this with XP as your Operating System, press the power button and immediately start tapping the F8 key, this will take you to a screen with options, here is a more detailed overview of that:
Start the computer in safe mode To start the computer in safe mode
  1. You should print these instructions before continuing. They will not be available after you shut your computer down in step 2.
  2. Click Start, click Shut Down, and then, in the drop-down list, click Shut down.
  3. In the Shut Down Windows dialog box, click Restart, and then click OK.
  4. When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.
  5. Use the arrow keys to highlight the appropriate safe mode option, and then press ENTER.
  6. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot system, choose the installation that you need to access using the arrow keys, and then press ENTER.

  • In safe mode, you have access to only basic files and drivers (mouse, monitor, keyboard, mass storage, base video, default system services, and no network connections). You can choose the Safe Mode with Networking option, which loads all of the above files and drivers and the essential services and drivers to start networking, or you can choose the Safe Mode with Command Prompt option, which is exactly the same as safe mode except that a command prompt is started instead of the graphical user interface. You can also choose Last Known Good Configuration, which starts your computer using the registry information that was saved at the last shutdown.
  • Safe mode helps you diagnose problems. If a symptom does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and minimum device drivers as possible causes. If a newly added device or a changed driver is causing problems, you can use safe mode to remove the device or reverse the change.
  • There are circumstances where safe mode will not be able to help you, such as when Windows system files that are required to start the system are corrupted or damaged. In this case, the Recovery Console may help you.
  • NUM LOCK must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.

    If this doesn't correct the problem you may be able to try the recovery in safe mode.Then depending on what disks you have available some of the below may be an option.


    Repair overviewWindows XP includes several features to ensure that your computer and the applications and devices installed on it work correctly. These features help you solve the problems that can result from adding, deleting, or replacing files that your operating system, applications, and devices require in order to function. Most of these features are available on all three versions of Windows XP: Windows XP Home Edition, Windows XP Professional, and Windows XP 64-Bit Edition. The recovery feature or features that you use depend on the type of problem or failure you encounter. Use the following list to determine which features to use to address a specific problem.

    Feature: Recovery Console
    When to use it: If using Last Known Good is unsuccessful, and you cannot start the computer in Safe Mode. This method is recommended only if you are an advanced user who can use basic commands to identify and locate problem drivers and files. To use the Recovery Console, restart the computer with the installation CD for the operating system in the CD drive. When prompted during text-mode setup, press R to start the Recovery Console.
    What it does: From the Recovery Console, you can access the drives on your computer. You can then make any of the following changes so that you can start your computer:
    Enable or disable device drivers or services.
    Copy files from the installation CD for the operating system, or copy files from other removable media. For example, you can copy an essential file that had been deleted.
    Create a new boot sector and new master boot record (MBR). You might need to do this if there are problems starting from the existing boot sector.
    Available on: All versions of Windows XP.

On my screen, I have "Windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt" Windown/System32/Config/System. You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup...


Try to boot in safe mode by pressing F8 while the system is booting.

Once in safe mode, use system restore to restore your computer state to an earlier date when this problem was not present.

Thanks
