XP Display freeze

Thanks Tom,
Default failsafe BIOS setting didn't help.

I'll have to get back to my local supplier of this hardware, and see if they can help.

Thanks again for your assistance.

I'm sure it's a BIOS or software issue - but a tricky one to identify and solve.

All the best for the NEW YEAR.

Re: XP Display freeze

I found the problem causing the lock up

It was the LG DVD Burner on the IDE connection

I changed to an ordinary CD ROM 52 x and everything worked perfectly

Why the LG DVD Burner did this, I have no idea. By the way, the MB & CPU, DDR2 & LG Burner are new.

Kaiwah, You never said how old the MB is, but it looks like the onboard video is bad. If it is still under warranty have them fix it. If not go out and get a new board. I have seen yours for about less than $100.00 bucks

Thank you and happy new year to you too!!

How to fix file \i386\ntkrnlmp.exe error 7

Depending on the cause of error, you need to either change your BIOS settings to default or replace the faulty RAM to resolve it.
Change BIOS settings to default

To apply default BIOS settings, enter your BIOS setup, select and save the default BIOS settings.

Restart your computer

During the boot process you will see on the screen to press a certain key to enter setup usually the Delete or F2 key
this will vary depending on your computer and operating system

Press and hold that key during the boot up process to enter BIOS using the arrow keys load failsafe defaults or load optimised defaults press escape then press f10 to save to cmos to restart

Note: When your system loads, the text in the bottom part of the screen contains information on which key you need to press to enter the BIOS setup.

Also, before changing your BIOS settings, note the current settings.

This information will come in handy if you need to revert to your old settings later.

Replace the faulty RAM

If you find your BIOS settings were already set to default, the cause of the above errors could be faulty RAM.

If you have only one RAM installed, then replace it with new RAM to fix the error. In case you have multiple RAM chips, then to identify the faulty RAM chip, take out all the RAM chips, insert them one by one and restart your computer each time.

Discard or replace the RAM chip that generates the error after installing.

Note: You can also use the help of a reliable memory diagnostic tool to identify the corrupt memory module.

Besides incorrect BIOS settings or faulty hardware, another major cause of recurring exe errors is malware infection.

Malware, such as worms and viruses deliberately change the reference points of exe files in the registry.

As a result, exe errors, such as ntkrnlmp.exe errors occur every time an application tries to execute the infected file.

To prevent malware from causing exe errors on your computer, we recommend you secure your PC by installing robust antimalware software, such as Antivirus Plus and StopZilla.

Also, schedule regular malware scans of your entire PC and keep your antimalware software updated with the latest virus definitions and security updates.

I prefer to try the free ones before committing to a puchase anti malware free edition Win XP/2003/Vista/Windows7

Furthermore, ensure that your registry is clean and devoid of unwanted information.

Oftentimes, registry issues are found to be the root cause of many system errors, including exe errors.

Perform regular registry scans using efficient registry cleaning software,
such as RegGenie,or
registry cleaner its also free
to eliminate any incorrect and corrupt entries from your registry.

hope this helps

My screen keep flickering every 2 seconds. However laptop still can function as per normal. My laptop is LG brand, R405.How can I solve it? Or should i just spend my money to get a new one?

Your #1 suspect: LCD inverter, a circuit which supplies white light to the screen.

Step 1 (this is a workaround only)
Attach a regular CRT to the monitor port on the back of your system. You'll be able to use
the computer as before using the CRT as your display rather than the system LCD display.
Reasons to do this sooner rather than later:
(a) flickering with a frequency of 2 seconds is likely to cause headache.
(b) your LCD inverter is about to die.

Step 2.
Use your computer software (you didn't mention what OS you're running), hunt up any/all
vendor-supplied video diagnostics for your system, meaning any diags that run at any of three
levels: (1) BIOS (just above hardware level), (2) MSDOS, (3) MSwindows. The diag most likely
to help will be a BIOS video diag - though its possible that all video diagnostics may pass
without detecting an impending LCD inverter failure.

Step 3: Download the manual for your motherboard & computer system (they're probably from
different companies, with different web sites - you didn't mention the make/model/BIOS version of your motherboard, on your LG R405 computer). I went to
but couldn't find any laptops manufactured by LG - they're heavy into cellular telephony, though.

Advanced BIOS setting


I would suggest using the set bios default option on the main screen. This should reset everything to factory defaults.

Be sure to exit saving settings. After that, assuming there's no hardware damage, it should start fine.

Hope this helps. Please remember to rate this information.

Black Screen appears and Windows restarts itself when on

if you press F8 do you get the menu items that you can use the up / down arrows to navigate ie to select safe mode etc ?

If so select the option to disable automatic reboot on error and hopefully it will give you a blue screen of death and you should be able to post back with that error as it is or google it and it should tell you the issue.

CPU max temps are set too low in bios ( check those and set them to a reasonable temp )

driver issue ( corrupt graphics card driver )

Or the power supply is not powerful enough to power the motherboard and everything else ( post back with power supply rated wattage ) and what you have hardware wise - have you installed any new hardware recently ?

Motherboard stop recognize SATA HDD after BIOS reset (default)

You'll likely need either a driver disk for your SATA drive to be recognized by Windows XP during installation or Windows XP with Service Pack 2 built in to install without a driver disk.

Creating a Windows XP installation CD with Service Pack 2 or "SP2" built in is fairly straight forward. This is called "slip streaming". Step - by - step directions can be found in the following links:
