Re: a problem has been detected an window has shut down...

Boot into safe mode by pressing f8 at windows boot time,

run a check disk by rightclicking the harddisk, properties, tools, check disk

check both options for file recovery and system file fix, click ok rebboot

see what happens and get back to me


use a bootable media like the windows system disk to enter the recovery console and run checkdisk from there

get back to me

Dell latitude e5510 laptop got blue screen saying that a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer but it wont do anything ele's help any one

have you made any changes before the blue screen appear? installing a driver maybe? if you have,try to undone those changes by booting with Startup with last known good configuration (undo recent registry and driver change),use System Restore,or Roll Back device driver,Scan your computer for viruses
and Return BIOS settings to their default levels,go to BIOS by pressing F2 or del exactly after you press the power button and the screen show up
if it still in blue screen,that's probably that some of your system file is missing,and you need to reinstall your operating system
Please let me know if it's working or not,i don't like to abandon anyone,and thanks for using fixya

Dell inspiron mini 10 Turn it on, put in password. screen says windows did not start up sucessfully. A recent hardware or software change may have caused this. then i go to the last known good...

A blue screen with white writing appears on my computer,
just before windows is about to begin and it reads:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut
down to prevent damage to your computer.


If this is the first time you've seen this stop error
screen restart you're computer.
If this screen appears again follow these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is
properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask
your hardware/software manufacturer for any windows
updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly
installed hardware/software. Disable BIOS memory options
such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe
mode to remove or disable components, restart your
computer, press F8 to select advanced startup options,
and then select safe mode.

Technical information:



I cannot go into windows even in safe mode, and I don't
know how to execute any of the other things it's telling
me to do.

It may have something to do with my virtual memory as
windows had to increase it while I was playing a computer
game, or because I added some extra pictures I downloaded
to a computer game folder where the default pictures were
already stored.

if u cant do these then reinstall the operating system.

"A problem was detected and

Re boot in safe mode if normal boot is not possible and run CHKDSK/F

That should sort hard disc errors out then download and run the registry utility, that will remove more errors. It is a free ware programme and works very well.
Hope that sorts it out for you.

Install windows XP

You sure your HD isn't bad? You could try a low-level format and then try to install, I am assuming you don't mind loosing any data already on the disk.

Windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to computer

try restore ur system to factory default state when u purchased it as new u can do that as follows

from ur backup OS cd
or try this

BEFORE TURNING ON THE LAPTOP, press and hold the 0 (zero) button on the keyboard, then turn on the computer while holding the 0 (zero) button down. When the Toshiba logo screen appears, you can release the 0 key.

if the problem persists after this then i am 100% sure about hardware malfunction that is RAM problem kindly replace and check if it works or if u have two RAM chips installed try each one at a time to find the faulty one

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.
