Blue Screen of Death

Can't get to anything outside of setup. Safe Mode won't work. Type in the XP password and get the following blue screen.

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 your 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 you hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates
you may need.
If problems continued, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or 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.

SOURCE: what do I do to stop my laptop from dumping

You have either installed a faulty driver or unsuitble update or your Hard Drive,CD Rom or some other Hardware has failed, try starting in Safe Mode by pressing the F8 key several times right after starting your computer if you get in select the "last good known configurations" or "safe mode" itself and undo changes made before this happend. If all fails try to do a system restore from the safe mode entry.

MY COMPUTER FUJITSU SIEMENS SHOW BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH and when i try to install windows xp in it then a line appears ''setup did not find any disk"

First you will have to get rid of blue screen. Try booting in safe mode and clean up recent downloads which might be causing the problem.
Failing that I tried buying a program SPOTMAU WHICH WORKED. See if tat company is around.

Error code for apire 5315 0x0000007b,0xf7c21528,0x0000034,0x00000000

Remove all USB attached devices like drives. You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode). Win 7 - Start > Search type System Restore. XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates. Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode. To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC, open case, and remove all RAM. Test one DIMM at time, one slot at a time. Re-install Windows. Clean install works best, but all data will be lost. Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

When i go to start it up, it shows the Windows XP loading screen, then a black then blue screen flash for less than a 1/2 second.

It's called a BSOD which means blue screen of death. try to boot into safe mode by pressing F8 as soon as the computer starts hit it repeatedly, then try last known configuration that worked. If that doesn't work, reboot and try F8 again and go to safe mode, then do a system restore.

Computer will not start, it turns on then a blue screen comes up and restarts

When you turn on your laptop keep pressing the F8 key to get to a boot menu, then choose safe mode and see if you can get into windows that way. If you can get into windows then go into the system tools folder and choose system restore and choose a date the last time you didn't get the blue screen of death and let the sysem reboot and see if you can get back into windows.

If you can't get into safe mode and your still getting the blue screen of death, then that means you have corrupt system files and you'll need to restore your laptop back to factory defaults with your cds if you have them.

Blue Screen of death.

You might try removing the Hard Drive from the machin and slaving it on your other machine. Then running a chkdsk in the command prompt or norton disk utilities. If either fails, backup your data on other machin and reinstall.

Blue screen of death

Hi there
"Unmountable Boot Volume." means that the system 32 folder has become corrupt and probably you will have to recover the system.
If you have XP CD for a clean install, you have to change the boot order from within the bios (F2 on boot up) and tell it to boot from CD.
This will change the boot order and allow you to reinstall the OS.
Be warned that you WILL loose data if this is the only option open to you.

Good luck

Unable to open windows

try booting into safe mode (hit F8 repeatedly when you reboot until a safe mode option comes up) then if you are able to log in, go to the windows run prompt, type "msconfig" go to startup, disable all, services, disable all. reboot. see if it still does the same, if it doesn't one of those services are causing blue screen. Also try reverting to previous drivers if you did any driver updates, remove any new cards/hardware you might of installed recently.

If you can't get into safe mode, at a copy of any xp disk. boot up from it. (make sure your boot devices are set that cd rom is before hdd in cmos setup) then go to the recovery console "you press 'r' when ou have various option" type 1 for the windows, enter. enter for password unless you previously set an admin password.

Then type "chkdsk /p", let it run also type fixboot, and say yes. reboot and see if this solves your problem.
