If you take your PC anywhere like say Geeksquad they will charge a bunch of money.

This is what they will do to fix it:
-They will reformat the PC for you.

What you need to do to save alot of money is do the reformat yourself.

Please answer these questions:
1.What's your operating system?
2.Do you have any recovery disks for your PC or Operating disks?

Missing or corrupted system 32 wont install off windows xp disk


try going to the bios and change the boot sequence for hard drive to cd
put the copy of xp in the external hard drive and reboot the computer
when it powers up it should boot up off the external hard drive

Hi there, There are numerous causes for this problem. A blue screen of death can be caused by the following: Faulty Memory, Damaged Windows Installation, Corrupted Drivers or even damaged software.
So firstly i would advise getting all your Drivers updated and checking you memory modules. If that doesn't help try seeing if the error only happens when you use a specific program or software. You could also do a Windows Repair cause corrupted windows files regularly can cause blue screens..

Blue Screen windows 7 PC closes with a Blue Screen and Restarts


There are a lot of possible causes for blue screen errors, but most of them relate to the computer hardware. The cause of a BSOD error can be a temperature problem, a timing error, a resource conflict, hardware failure, a corrupt registry, a virus or simply a device incompatibility or driver error.
How to analyze blue screen errors The first thing to do to analyze a blue screen error is to check the meaning of the STOP error code. You need to stop Windows from rebooting when a STOP error is encountered. Once the blue screen of death is shown, you can check the meaning of the STOP error code. Together with the filename of the driver or module, this will give an indication of the error cause.
Another option to analyze the cause of the blue screen error is to look at the Windows system event log or to debug the memory dump (minidump) that Windows created when the error occurred. The event log can be viewed using the event viewer. Right-click Computer in the Start menu, and then select Manage. In the Computer Management window select Event Viewer. The information in the event log can be of great help to isolate the cause of the blue screen error.
Reading the minidump requires a bit more technical knowledge, but Microsoft has tools to read the minidump.
The most common cause of blue screen errors In reality, the most common cause of blue screen errors is a device driver problem. Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.
So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. This will ensure that all driver bugs are fixed and that all hardware has the correct driver.
If you know which device caused the error, you can update or reinstall that driver first. The file name in the blue screen of death can help identify the driver. Look for a file with the .SYS extension and search for that file name.
If you do not have the drivers for all devices, or are not comfortable updating your PC's drivers manually, you can use a driver update tool to find, download and update all device drivers for you. Such tools will accurately identify your computer hardware, including any device causing an error, and automatically install the latest drivers for it.
In most cases updating or reinstalling drivers will solve your blue screen errors.
Other causes of blue screen errors However, if updating device drivers does not fix the blue screen error, there are a number of additional things to try:
  • Load the default BIOS values - resource conflicts and timing issues can be caused by incorrect BIOS settings.
  • Update the BIOS - especially after adding new hardware or installing a Windows service pack this can help fix issues.
  • Update Windows - missing updates, including service packs can be a source of stop errors.
  • Check your system - run a virus scan and spyware scan after updating your definition files.
  • Driver rollback - if you have recently updated a driver, you can use the driver rollback to revert back to the previous driver version.
List of STOP Errors Causing BSOD:
  • Stop 0×00000003 UNSYNCHRONIZED_ACCESS
  • Stop 0x0000000A IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL
  • Stop 0x0000001E KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED
  • Stop 0×00000023 FAT_FILE_SYSTEM
  • Stop 0×00000024 NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM
  • Stop 0x0000002E DATA_BUS_ERROR
  • Stop 0x0000003F NO_MORE_SYSTEM_PTES
  • Stop 0×00000044 MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS


Here are 2 solutions:
Solution #1 Scan your registry for errors.
A Registry Cleaner scans your computer for errors in your PC's registry. Your computer's registry contains information about your Windows XP operating system, including driver, printer, software information. Over time, your computer's registry may start to contain obsolete data. A corrupt registry will easily slow down the speed of your computer because applications and drivers are loaded even though they're not in use. Fixing your registry of errors will not only prevent the Windows XP Blue Screen Of Death, it'll allow your computer to boot faster, open up multiple folders quicker. A listing of registry cleaners can be found here.
Solution #2 Process of Elimination
When the CPU calls certain functions from the RAM, or Random Access Memory, and the data rests in a faulty section of the RAM, this will cause the blue screen to appear. I recall a time whenever my computer booted up and started loading the Norton Anti Virus program, the blue screen error message would appear. This happens because the CPU is accessing data from faulty locations within the RAM when loading the anti virus software.
This method involves having 2 sticks of RAM. Remove 1 stick of RAM and wait to see if the blue screen surfaces, do the same for the other.
Through process of elimination, you'll find the cause of the Windows XP blue screen of death error.
Because getting into the hardware can be a little techy for computer hardware "adverse" readers, a simple 2 step plan is to first clear your PC of any registry errors. Then if the blue screen of death goes away, we would have saved ourselves the trouble of having to open up the PC casing and touching the hardware components

When my gateway MT6705 tries to boot, blue screen


Many times this error occurs when I have swapped a hard drive and used the wrong IDE cable to connect it. If your computer uses an Ultra Direct Memory Access (UDMA) hard disk controller, and you use a standard 40-wire connector cable to connect the UDMA drive, you may experience this error. Make sure you are using the correct IDE cable.

Also, if your BIOS settings are configured to force the faster UDMA modes, this error may occur. In this situation, restart your computer and enter the BIOS and load the "fail-safe" default settings and reboot.

If neither of these issues are the cause for the Unmountable Boot Volume, then the issue most likely is caused by a damaged BOOT.INI file in the root directory of the boot drive or file system corruption.

Follow the steps below to correct these file system issues:

1) Start your computer with your Windows XP CD-ROM, or with Windows XP boot disks
2) When the Welcome to Setup screen appears, press R to Repair the installation using the Recovery Console
3) If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the Windows installation you want to access
4) Type the administrator password when you are prompted, if no administrator password is set then just press Enter
5) At the command prompt, type CHKDSK /R and then press Enter
6) Once CHKDSK has finished checking and repairing the hard drive, type EXIT and press Enter to restart your computer

Ok I'm denise my problem is I get a blue screen telling me 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...


The Blue Screen of Death. Yes, I have had it many times. You can try to restart the computer using the F8 to enter safe mode. Then shutdown and restart. This usually happens when a file has been corrupted, normally by a virus or improper shutdown. If this doesn't repair the problem your left with trying to re-install the OS to fix the bad file. If yo can't get to safe mode your only option is trying to re-install the OS. If you see an option to install or repair choose repair to get the machine back up. I saw this a lot with ME, if you have Windows ME, get Windows XP and upgrade since Windows ME has so many bugs that XP would be a much better option.

Turn on my computer works perfect then a sytem32 error occures then crashes to the blue screen(PAGE_FAULT_IN _NONPAGED_AREA) and motherboard makes a weird beep sound kind of like a bird.


Try to change the memory modules...if there is two inset 1 at a time and boot ur system to check if u still face the problem....if not try borrow a memory module..and check....it looks like its the memory in your case but if you u still have problem having verified that its not the memory...



First of all, you need to understand what "System32 corrupt or missing" actually means.
System32 is a vital part of your PC. You can look at it as the heart and brain of the Windows operating system without which, your computer would not be working at all. System32 is usually located in the C: drive under C:WindowsSystem32 or C:Winntsystem32 and is usually hidden in order to prevent any accidental alterations by the user.

Reboot your PC and press F8 during the booting sequence until you get into the boot menu. Select "Boot Using Last Known Good Configuration". Your PC will now try to startup using a configuration that has worked in the past. If you are still facing the System32 corrupt or missing error, you could try the following but you have to be careful. In case you are not comfortable messing with your system files, skip this part and continue reading the "Quick and Easy Fix" paragraph.
Use the Console to Fix the "System32 Corrupt or Missing" Error

Insert your Windows XP Recovery disk and reboot your PC. If you don't have a recovery disk skip this paragraph. Select the Recovery Console and type the following into the console.
This will recover your windows system but you need to be extremely careful that you are typing correct commands or everything gets even worse.
md tmp

copy C:windowssystem32configsystem C:windowstmpsystem.bak

delete C:windowssystem32configsystem

copy C:windowsrepairsystem C:windowssystem32configsystem

Quick and Easy Fix

In case you don't feel comfortable messing with your windows system; I suggest using a Windows System Repair tool which will scan your System and list all system errors before attempting to fix it. Besides solving the System32 corrupt or missing error, a system repair tool will ultimately speed up your System as it cleans and reorganizes your registry and deletes unnecessary files.
A commonly used tool is Errorsmart which is available for free at http://www.SpeedUpMyPc.Info Before re-installing windows or messing with your system, give Errorsmart a try and check if it is able to fix system32 corrupt or missing error

keep me posted

Missing file


you have a corrupt driver, try a system restore to a day before this happened as you may have updated a driver which is not compatible from microsoft with automatic updates, or it's because of software that has recently been installed
