Aspire 5475 freezes on startup


It is most certainly a driver, but if you cant access the safe mode also that could be a hardware issue.. Try to troubleshoot with a windows installation cd. Put it in and boot the pc. It will start the windows instalation, you choose repair computer and not install windows. The command prompt will open, try to troubleshoot from there.. Thanks!

Start up problem.need to turn on and off many times.after turn on run for a while ,blue sreen appears ,then everything goes off


Try pressing F8 repeatedly on startup and at the options screen, if you get the choice, choose repair my computer. If not, choose safe mode. This loads only the basic drivers and files, so if the machine starts in safe mode, there is probably an issue with a driver or a corrupt registry file. If you have the recovery disc, you can try booting it from the CD drive and do a startup repair. Choose language settings and then choose repair your computer.

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 Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.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

Computer will not boot up. I have tried to boot up in safe mode, normal, safe mode with prompt command...nothing works, just goes back to the normal start up screen and keeps doing the normal start up over...


It looks like you're encountering an endless reboot? Here's what to do to find the actual error message.

  1. Turn on the computer, and press F8 after the POST screen but before Windows attempts to start to access the advanced startup options.
  2. Select "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" and press Enter.
You should now get a blue screen with an error message and error codes. Please write these codes down and report back.

Cannot use windows problem number c0000218


That Blue Screen of Death you cite is a registry hive file error.

Since you state you don't have any HP discs, you have only two things you can do.

(a) This is the less involved way to go and preferable because it's destructive. Attempt to start your PC in Safe Mode. That is, when you reboot and see the HP logo, start hitting the F8 key to bring up the Windows Startup menu. Select Safe Mode. When you get to the Login screen, login with the Administrator account, and I hope you remember the Administrator password when you do this if you set one up. Assuming you make it to the desktop, go to Start --> Programs --> Accessories --> System Tools --> System Restore. Run the wizard to revert your system back to a time before the problem started. Don't be afraid to go back farther than you need to because your data files will not be affected. The only things that will be affected are program installations, registry changes and driver changes. Let the wizard do it's thing and follow the prompts and you should be fine. If this doesn't work...

(b) For this one, you're going to need to move files. For that, you'll need a Windows CD. If you have an extra one around so you can boot to the Recovery Console, you'll be fine. Assuming you find one, then just follow the steps on this page --> Recovering HIVE Files. That will get Windows back to functional status, but you will have to reinstall your programs because even though they're there, you're recovering to a pristine version of that registry file that doesn't include any non-Windows software, so Windows can't use it.

Good luck, and post back with how it goes.

For solving blue screen error


HP Notebook PCs - "Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown" Blue Screen Error Occurs During Startup or Boot

Description
Windows XP may not start and the following error message may appear on a blue screen:
Windows Unsafe or Sudden Shutdown
This error occurs after Windows was not shutdown using a safe method. The notebook may have been turned off without clicking Shut Down or briefly pressing the computers Power button. The power may have been suddenly disconnected from the computer or the Power button may have been held for more than 5 seconds.
An unsafe shutdown can damage some of the Windows system files, preventing the computer from starting properly.
Solution
If the error occurs allow the operating system to complete a check of the hard disk. Windows will prompt your to run CHKDSK. CHKDSK scans the hard drive for damaged files and repairs the files if necessary. The scan may take up to an hour depending on the size of the hard drive and the number of damaged files. The computer will restart when the scan is complete and Windows should start normally.
If Windows will not start or the computer will not boot after the scan is complete see: HP Notebook PCs - Troubleshooting a Startup or No Boot Problem (In English)

Registry file failure


If the last suggestion i posted didn't work, you need to put in your Windows CD on boot up and when it asks if you want to repair or install press 'R' for repair, this should repair any damaged registry files and Windows files.
