Blue Screen with error messages

Just tried to install windows xp on a b130 laptop. It loadsup until it says windows is starting and then goes into this screen. I took the hd out of my working b130 and it loaded up perfect and went into internet explorer just fine. Could this mean a bad hd? one of the messages on the blue screen says make sure you have enough disc space. Here is the picture

    I got it up and running. I tried to use an original windows xp disc that must have been corrupted. I had a dell windows xp home disc and the OS loaded up very smoothly and the computer is up and running.

    Thank You for the advice. I tried the safe mode but all the time it was a bad OS disc. It is up and running.

  • sodak222 Dec 30, 2007

    I did try the last known configuration and got the same message. I just threw the original windows disc away. It must have been scratched or something. I have 2 b130 dells and they both have given me problems but I seem to have them worked out now but for how long I have no idea. I want to Thank everyone on this site for their time to help me my problems. This is the best and most knowledgeable site I have ever been on. Keep up the good work.

Startup your laptop keep clicking f8 until you see option like star in safe mode just click on "LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION(your most recent settings that worked)"

Simple as that ;-).

    Noooo, you didn't understand me right. You didn't have to click on safe mode you had to scroll down and click on (LAST KNOWN GOOD CONFIGURATION(your most recent settings that worked).

    I am sure it is going to work.

    Have a nice time with your working laptop ;-).

Take one memory stick out and test. Then do the other. Also checking each memory slot.

If not solved. When the computer starts, continually press F8 until you get startup menu- select SAFE MODE and fix the driver or software that is in startup
or

Roll back to last known configuration that worked.

While you are there- disable Auto Reboot on Failure.

I get a stop error message when I try to install windows like this stop: 0x0000007e pci.sys


the error that you are getting is caused when you use an old Windows XP CD without service pack 2 integrated. If you want to install XP on to the new system you must use an XP CD that has service pack 2 integrated.

Dell b130 internal system restoration failed


Incase you don't have any thing important on the computer try a factory restore. This will wipe out everthing and make the cmputer like new. To start it power off the laptop. Power it on and hold down ctrl and tap f11 severl times at the Dell logo screen. Try this q couple of times as it may not work the first time. If this does nothing you'll need the os cd (xp cd) tO repair or reinstall windows.

Can't reload windows xp. Keeps shutting down???? Acer 2700 Laptop


this happens when you have errors with the hard drive not responding to the new boot or drivers not responding. is this a clean install or a restore? if you are not using the original xp disk the machine came with you may get these errors. the blue screen usually has a message in it. let me know what it says if you get a second.

Laptop starts and after a while of using a blue error box falshes on the screen and turns off comp I can't even read the blue box its sooo quick!


That is called the BSOD (Blue Screen of Death).
try a chkdsk:


Chkdsk
Take the Windows XP disk. Boot from it, then DO NOT select F2 (automated system recovery) but continue through the procedure until you get to the point where you can choose between installing Windows XP and entering the Recovery Console. Once you get into the Recovery Console, do chkdsk and fix potential errors on your disks! Type Chkdsk C: /R at the prompt.

Or try a XP repair:

XP repair
When you boot with the Win XP install CD-ROM, it loads a minimal operating system, similar to DOS, but compatible with Win XP. At the first screen you select install Win XP (not Recovery Console) and at the next screen it will find that you already have Win XP and offer to attempt a repair. This repair should not touch your Applications or data; it just reinstalls the Windows files. This is great because when it works you don't need to reinstall all your software.


If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe
