Yikes..that means that either your main disk and data are corrupted, or hopefully, only the target disk for your backup.

I'm assuming you can run your computer, right?

then, it's most likely a surface or system header corruption on the area that you are backing up to>

a little more information on your setup will be most helpful?

Most of the applications on my hp pavilion dv4 laptop stopped working and when i did a system restore, i got an error message which says "failure 0x8000ffff" and i have not been able to restore...


That's a catastrophic failure code. This can mean either your hard drive or possibly one or more partitions on your hard drive have failed. A system crash is not only imminent, it's happened.
Take your computer to a tech who can wipe or replace the hard drive, and reinstall an operating system.
The good news is your computer itself is most likely okay, but you'll lose all your data (which is a messy thing, but not the end of the world)

MY 32" LCD PHILIPS KEEPS CLICKING AND SWITCHING ON AND OFF ON ITS OWN, ALSO THE REMOTE RANDOMLY STOPS WORKING


tomlyndlevjo, Possible failure of internal "switch-mode-power-supply" board in tv. Remote not bad or intermittant!!! SMPS board is detecting "fault condition" and goes into "shutdown mode" to try and "save itself" from catastrophic, nonrecoverable failure. e.g. sparks, smoke, fire!!! If warranty no longer valid option for you, then you or qualified electronics technician will need to investigate SMPS board to find cause as to why SMPS cycles in/out of "shutdown mode" 12fixlouie

CAN U HELP ME FIX CATASTROPHIC FAILURE ERROR 0X8000FFFF VISTA


Try backing up your files to another drive or an external. Make your first target in the "Public" folder. You may need to create a New Folder prior to reattempting the backup. This problem often arises in Vista when a backup of C:\ is targeted to Drive C:\.
Good Luck

BCCCode 18 BCP2: fffffa80056befc0 Catastrophic Failure: 0x8000ffff


uninstall all SQL components from the list of Programs installed

______________________________________________________

Catastrophic failure (0x8000ffff)
Cause
Any of the following could contribute to this issue:

An application is interfering with System Restore.
One or more of the core System Restore files are missing and/or corrupted.
The Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) has been disabled. System Restore depends on VSS volume snapshots being created via Shared Protection Points (SPP). System Restore cannot function if snapshot creation via SPP breaks or is disabled or if VSS is disabled.
Resolution
To resolve such issues, use these steps:

Try to use System Restore from WinRE, Safe Mode, or Windows Vista in a clean boot state. If that fails, proceed with the next steps.
Check for the following files in the %windir%\system32 directory:
Srrstr.dll
Srclient.dll
Srcore.dll
Rstrui.exe
Follow the "Restoring Core Files" section later in this document. You might want to follow the instructions in that section to reregister Srcore.dll. Keep in mind that you are not able reregister Srrstr.dll, Srclient.dll, and Rstrui.exe as doing so produces an error message.
Check that Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) is not disabled.
Check for either of the following registry keys:
HKLM\Software\Policies\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\SystemRestore
If you find a DisableConfig DWORD set to 1 in either of these keys, export the key and delete it.
Try System Restore again.

Restore points gone!!


This sounds like Malware. You should attempt to scan with an Online Scan provider.

If you are not able to access the internet with this system, you can download trials of your Anti-virus software of choice. Be sure to read carefully for necessary downloads and definition updates for the software you choose.

Better to be safe then sorry.

Let us know
Good luck

Sir, I have tried what you have suggested for catastrophic failure


That is a critical error. Something is not allowing you to access your registry. You might not have security to do so.

You might have to log in to your computer as administrator.

I recommend you contacting PeopleSoft support and make sure your system meets their specifications.

There might be a version difference maybe Vista 32 vs. 64.

Hp pavillion dv 6000


it could be that you have a virus on your computer. i typed the error code into yahoo search engine and several things came up. cluttered hard drive. and or virus. try going to start menu, programs, accessories, system tools, disk clean up. check the boxes that need to be cleaned. then tonight before you go to bed do a disk defragment it will take a long time do run this part. in the morning check it and see if you can download the messenger. if that doesnt work then try to use a virus software or an adware removal program. spysweeper is good and you can now get their virus protection too.
