Question about Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

SCREEN GOES WHITE AFTER A LITTLE WHILE...

Here is what the event viewer is telling me:

"The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
cdrom"

And what the event viewer listed in detail:

<"Event xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/win/2004/08/events/event"> - <System> <Provider Name="Service Control Manager" Guid="{555908D1-A6D7-4695-8E1E-26931D2012F4}" EventSourceName="Service Control Manager" /> <EventID Qualifiers="49152">7026EventID> <Version>0Version> <Level>2Level> <Task>0Task> <Opcode>0Opcode> <Keywords>0x80000000000000Keywords> <TimeCreated SystemTime="2008-01-05T17:05:31.000Z" /> <EventRecordID>13684EventRecordID> <Correlation /> <Execution ProcessID="0" ThreadID="0" /> <Channel>SystemChannel> <Computer>themissing_linkComputer> <Security /> System> - <EventData> <Data Name="param1">cdromData> EventData> Event>"
I have a toshiba a105 laptop with ati x1250 mobility graphics. This is a revival project, and it doesn't currently have a disc drive installed. I use an external drive for install purposes. I have ordered a drive, but its on back order. I have been reading up on this and everyone has been pointing to drivers, but I havent updates my drivers in a long time and this just started in the past week.

    Thanks a lot for the explanation and such. I figured it was a service related issue, but why would cd rom drivers/service be trying to run when I do not have an optical disc drive installed? I use Advanced Windows Care V2 everyday, and all it found was an obsolete key related to file extensions. I would normally format and reinstall, but I just recently loaned my external optical drive to a friend.

    Is there anyways to disable the driver/service that is trying to load? since I dont require it.

Service Control Manager >> this defines a currently running service or a service that is attempting to run but cannot get stared.. simply hold CTRL + ALT and PRESS DEL the taskmager will popup and then click prosesses,, all these are services..

GUID-555908D1-A6D7-4695-8E1E-26931D2012F4
general user identification of the service

EventID Qualifiers="49152">7026</EventID
the event or situation it is trapping or handling,

Data Name="param1">cdrom - parameter 1 = cd rom

So basically they are saying its your cd driver, or your cd rom driver...

To fix this you need to scan your registery for errors using a registery repait tool such as tune up utilities..

if that dont work you will need to format and reinstall

Notes

By selecting Last Known Good Configuration, you can recover from problems such as a newly added driver that may be incorrect for your hardware.


This feature does not solve problems caused by corrupted or missing drivers or files.

When you select Last Known Good Configuration, only the information in the following registry key is restored:

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet



Any changes that you have made in other registry keys remain.

If you can start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, the last change that you made to the computer (for example, the installation of a driver) may be the cause of the incorrect startup behavior.


if this fails to fix the problem try to repair in safe mode



How to start the computer in safe mode

When you start the computer in safe mode, Windows loads only the drivers and computer services that you need.

You can use safe mode when you have to identify and resolve problems that are caused by faulty drivers, programs, or services that start automatically.






If the computer starts successfully in safe mode but it does not start in normal mode, the computer may have a conflict with the hardware settings or the resources. There may be incompatibilities with programs, services, or drivers, or there may be registry damage. In safe mode, you can disable or remove a program, service, or device driver that may prevent the computer from starting correctly.

To troubleshoot startup problems in safe mode, follow these steps:

Click Start, and then click Shut Down.

Click Restart, and then click OK.

When you see the message Please select the operating system to start, press F8.

On the Windows Advanced Option Menu, use the arrow keys to select Safe Mode, and then press Enter.

Note Num Lock must be off before the arrow keys on the numeric keypad will function.

If you are running other operating systems on the computer, click Microsoft Windows Server 2003 on the list, and then press Enter.

Do one of the following:

If the computer does not start in safe mode, try starting the computer by using the Recovery Console. If you still cannot start the computer, look for possible hardware problems, such as defective devices, installation problems, cabling problems, or connector problems. Remove any hardware that was added recently, and then restart the computer to see if the problem is resolved.

If the computer starts in safe mode, go to the next section to continue to troubleshoot the startup issue.

Use Event Viewer to identify the cause of the startup problem

View the event logs in Event Viewer for information that can help you identify and diagnose the cause of the startup problem.


To view events that are recorded in the event logs, follow these steps

Do one of the following:

Click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Event Viewer.

Start the Event Viewer snap-in in Microsoft Management Console (MMC).

In the console tree, expand Event Viewer, and then click the log that you want to view. For example, click System log or Application log.

In the details pane, double-click the event that you want to view.

To copy the details of the event, click Copy, open a new document in the program in which you want to paste the event (for example, Microsoft Word), and then click Paste on the Edit menu.

To view the description of the previous event or the next event, press the UP ARROW key or the DOWN ARROW key.


Use this tool to help identify possible problem devices and device conflicts.

To do this, follow these steps.

Starts up fine, gets to win xp loading screen and then goes black, i cannot get into windows, plz help


For that when you power up the computer press F8 key then if you are able to see safe mode and other menu then enter in enable vga mode.
Then go to start menu then control panel ->dispaly ->settings.
Also make sure that graphic driver installed and working fine.
change screen resolution to 1024*768 then apply and ok.
then check in normally.
But if you are not able to see even safe mode then you need recovery disk or windows disk.
Boot computer with that disk.
For that when you power up the computer press F1 or F2 or "del" key to enter in bios .
Then go to boot menu then set first boot device as cd/dvd rom .then save and exit.
Thern it boot with disk.
Then follow the procedure and repair your previous windows.
Let me kno wif you need further assistance.

Can not open control panel in window vista


Have you installed anything else on the system? Also, you might check Event
Viewer assuming that will open. Open the Start Menu, type Event Viewer in
the search box, when you see the security prompt, click continue and it
should open.

If that doesn't resolve it type CMD in Start Search on the Start Menu. When
you see CMD at the top of the Start Menu, right click, select "Run As
Administrator." When the command prompt opens, type

"sfc /scannow" without the quotes and let it run.

If that fails to resolve it, check manufacturer websites to make sure all
your device drivers are up to date, the same with all of your software, make
sure the apps are Vista compatible and that you've installed any updates.
Also, make sure you have no malware or any viruses. If all is fine you may
need to do a repair, boot from the Vista DVD and choose the repair option at
the setup screen.

you need to make a note of that blue screen you say you get when the computer stops working.. those are know as the infamous blue screen of death (no kidding) or as ms call it stop error screens..

make a note of the stop error code you get on the screen.. it's way to fast for you to see it.. you may be able to see what the stop error code is by going into the event viewer (as long as you have checked to have this events reported to event viewer in system properties> advance tab and start up and recovery area.).. look inthe event viewer (start>right click my computer>manage>event viewer) and look for system events.. you should see a white x inside a a red circle.. look for those error events and look for the error code.. it should give you something like 0x????????? post that error here.. or google it, it may give you an idea of what may be wrong. at this stage it could be software related or hardware related?

did you install a device recently? the driver is very comun problem that may give you a bsod if it's critical.

A restarting system is tricky to diagnose. But it's usually can be broken down into two categories.

Software: If any of your device drivers are corrupted or missing this can restart your system. If you get a blue screen with a lot of white writting momentarily before it restarts then there should be an entry in the event viewer in the management console that may provide some insight. Right click on My Computer and go to Manage, you will see even viewer on the left. Skim though it and read any errors. Otherwise the best thing to do to rule out software as your problem is to reformat and reinstall Windows fresh.

Hardware: This can usually be attributed to the power circuitry in your system. If your power supply has been weakened or the power rectifier circuitry on your motherboard isn't functioning properly then this can cause reboots. I recomend removing any extra hardware that is not needed, for example remove any network card, sound cards, usb devices, printers, extra memory, CD drives, then add them back one at a time. You will either determine the faulty device or verify that your problem is either motherboard or power supply related. It's nearly impossible to rule out the power supply or motherboard unless you have a spare known good power supply to test with. You should also examine your motherboard for any bulging or leaking capacitors.
