Windows Start-up Errors
Step one, you need a Windows XP CD. If you only have a recovery disk set like the ones from HP or Compaq they will not do what you need done. Under normal circumstances however, you can use a Dell disk because the Operating system is on a stand-alone disk. All retail versions are also acceptable as well as upgrade disks. For a rule of thumb, if the disk has the Microsoft hologram it should work. You can order a boot up floppy disk from here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/310994 with this file, if you know how, you can use “ImageBurn” to burn the file into an ISO file which can be burned to a disk. Now make sure your computer boots to the cd rom first. If you know how to do this skip on down, if you don’t, while the computer is first starting up and you see the manufacturers splash screen, tap F12 (some computers it’s F9, others it may be another key, you may have to watch and see if the computer lists the key strokes for getting to the boot menu. If you still cannot find it, boot into the BIOS settings and change your boot order there. Save your settings and exit, the computer will now seek the cd rom as its boot source first.
Place your Windows disk in the computer and start it up. When you see the test at the top of the page “Press Any Key To Boot From CD” Just hit the space bar to activate. The next screen you will see will most likely be a Windows setup screen, when you see this press the “R” key to get to the recovery console. It will get there, it may take a little time, patience. Once it loads you will be given a choice of Windows installations, there should only be one, if there are more, always pick number one. It may ask for an administrators password, if you have not set this particular password, then just leave it blank and press enter. The next prompt you see is:
C:\Windows>
You need to type the following:
cd \
hit enter. Pay close attention to the spacing between the characters. There is a space between the character “d” and the “\”
You are now at the ROOT of the drive, this is where basic commands can be given and changed. You should now see the following:
C:\>
Now type the following:
CHKDSK /R
Hit the enter key.
The chkdsk /r command also includes the P command and will also look for lost recoverable information in bad sectors.
There are occasions depending on how corrupt the system is, that this process could take several hours, so be patient with it.
Now, after chkdsk has run type the following:
FIXBOOT
Hit the enter key.
It may prompt you with a warning, that’s ok, just continue. When fixboot has finished, type: EXIT hit enter and windows will reboot. When the system reboots, tap the F8 key during this time and you will see the multi-boot menu come up. Scroll to the title “Last Know Good Configuration” and hit the enter key. If you were having some simple drive errors this should have fixed them.

just say my
HP Compaq 6720s Notebook PC (up to 9 years old) THIS IS a BSOD the blue screens of ***** ! infamous. then.
and if XP or VISTA operating system.?
BSOD'S are usually
1: Virus infections.
2: bad HDD or BAD RAM.

the BSOD means, the OS code in memory was corrupted in some way, that is what it means. cause is a whole other matter.

Boot to BIOS and run the memory diagnostic, yet.
Fixing BSODs can be a long hard job.
one can boot to the unstated OS and reinstall the OS. FRESH.
see if that works.
or run a boot LIVE CD there are many to try, as a test.
Linux live CD or microsoft XP ,W7/w8/w10 PE live cds' to test the system. All technicians have this so they can do tests.
lacking that , get the the PC serviced?

or run less memory in the hope that 1 stick is bad... try them 1 by one, is best. if only one, oh boy, hard to buy them now.
Lots of reasons for BSOD's
GOOD that, and see the 10,000,000 hits.
ouch

Laptop turns on, goes to first screen which reads IBM TRHINKPAD. THEN FLASHES OFF TO NEXT SCREEN WHICH READS THE WINDOWS XP LOGO then it goes black and doesnt come back on


Your installation of Windows is most probably corrupted. Try pressing and holding the F8 button on your keyboard when the 'IBM THINKPAD" screen disappears. That should bring you to a Windows menu where you can select various modes. Select Safe Mode and press enter. If it boots, then you know that something's wrong with Windows and not the notebook itself. What have you installed prior to this problem? Maybe you should try uninstalling it while in safe mode, and then try starting up Windows normally again.

If your windows doesn't start anyway, you should get some live OS (OS that can boot from CD) like Ubuntu or Puppy Linux, so you can save the data from C: partition (burn it or copy it elsewhere) and then reinstall your copy of Windows XP.

Blue screen and the charger works sometimes


blue screen aka bsod. when you get this bsod it will show you stop error code. you need to get the code to identify the exact issue you're having. If the bsod occures after the dell logo issue might be the video card or memory. if the bsod occures after windows logo then if might be caused by a corrupted windows updates or windows system file corruption. if the bsod occured after dell logo then check your memory if you have 2 ram modules try to remove 1 ram first then try booting your system using only 1 ram, try to swap and isolate reseat and teach eash slot on each ram module. if bsod occures after windows logo then try to run a test for your hard drive Fn+Power. If no errors it might be windows file corruption which needs to be restored or re-installing OS.

Boot Sector Error


Can you get it to boot without the BSOD? If the problem is intermittent, it's probably a flaky drive sector. If Windows will boot, you should be able to get Norton to make a good copy.

If it will no longer boot, the sector is probably corrupted. You can tell Norton to do a sector copy & ignore errors, but that may duplicate the problem.

You may want to try what's listed here:

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/927392

Look under /FixMBR. You could ghost it to another drive, then try that.

T6534 boot issue.


Without testing for myself, It sounds like a hardware compatibility issue. Cant say for sure without more info. Try all the components, one at a time, in another PC if you have the capability. Mainly the HDD, CPU , and memory. I have had this happen in the past. For no reason at all the components wont work together. Put them with other components in another PC and they work fine. Cant explain it, but it happens. Not as much as it used too though. Dont expect it would have anything to do with vista, except bad hardware trying to load the OS. If it were Vista, it would at least boot, in some form, even if it went to BSOD. The OS would not corrupt the BIOS. But a bad flash would, (or even a Virus). If you can, Try flashing the bios to the origional version. With the varied problems your having, I'd start there.

ThinkPad T20 2647....BSOD at startup...before asking for password


Hi,

If you can attach your hardisk to any Desktop Windows OS computer, you can use the "Check Disk" by windows to check the problem of you laptop hardisk, usually using USB Eclosure will help you connect your Laptop Hardisk to Desktop Computer. Just use "Check Disk" utility to check the Drive, you can do this by clicking MY COMPUTER, then Right Click on your Laptop Drive then PROPERTIES, then TOOLS and click CHECK NOW, then place a check mark on the "AUTOMATICALLY FIX SYSTEM ERRORS" then start fixing, after that, then put back your laptop hardisk on your laptop and see if its works.
