Dell 8400 Boots to Black Error Screen in XP States to reinstall System 32


This might be caused by hard-drive failure. You should run hard drive test from BIOS to make sure hard drive is ok. You can access BIOS by pressing F2 during start up, from there start hard disk self test and wait for it to complete.

If hard drive is ok after test, insert in your original Windows installation media and reinstall OS.

DELL 5150 hard drive error 7


Error code 7 means that your hard disk drive failed and is defective. As for reloading windows XP, I wouldn't. It's not supported by Microsoft any more. I would load Win 7 after replaceing the drive.

Windows xp instalation stpos givibg a blue screen in aspire m5640 desktop


Windows Xp installtion give Blue Screen of Death when XP tries to installed devices driver during installation or when the cd is corruptted and cannot be read in graphical mode installation or when the hard drive is corrupted with Bad sector.

Get a new windows XP CD and configure your system BIOS to default setting ( load optimal settings) and configured for IDE drive configuration to compatible mode or disable mode if you are using SATA hard drive.

If problem still occured, get "Bad sector recovery pro" and try to repair the hard disk.If the bad sector are unrecoverable then change the hard drive.

Sometimes, faulty RAM also give blue screen too. Check your RAM too.

Dll driving me nuts


Hello EricS777

The part where it looks like your xp stuff and vista stuff switch drives is normal. Only the Operating System associates the hard drives by letters this does not mean your hard drive files are switching. This happens because D: drive is Root of Vista OS and Root of any OS in windows gets the C: drive lettering.

dwwin.exe, drwtsn.exe dll is the "Microsoft Application Error Reporting" tool.

I think the message means that something is crashing during system shutdown. When the crash occurs the OS launches dwwin.exe to report the error, however the windows operating system is shutting down and so the application can't launch make the system lockup or hang.

Your problem isn't with dwwin.exe, you need to find out what is actually crashing at shutdown.

If you can`t find out what it is, try going to Administrative Tools/Services and disable the “Error Reporting Service”. You don`t want that running anyway.

Also right click My Computer/Properties/Advanced/Error Reporting
Put a check at both
Disable Error Reporting
But notify me when critical errors occur

Then, if that was the cause and the message stops, we`ll have to try to identify the cause.

Hi Henryk14,

There are a few issues that can halt Windows from installing.
1. If your Microsoft Windows CD is a copy & not a valid CD this can happen. (Possible bad copy).
2. You CD-ROM drive is either dirty, (Inside) or it's not reading the disk. (Check the data cable on the cd-rom drive. Make sure it is fully connected). (Swap out the data cable is needed).
3. E-Machine's can & most do have more than one partition on the primary hard disk drive.
Most likely there are two hidden partitions on the drive. If the manufacture placed one of the partitions at the top of the drive, (As many do to stop owners from upgrading their operating system with their own CD). The installation of XP can be halted. You will not see an error message from windows during installation in this case.
(The hidden partition is too small to allow windows to install, 4MB in size is about norm).
One option is to contact the manufacture & buy their upgraded OS CD for your model.
Another would be to erase the drive with a floppy disk. A standard Win98 boot disk will do the job but that is ill advised.
The best way to clean & format the entire drive would be to find the manufacture of the hard disk drive & go to their web site. Download their Dos software to create a bootable floppy disk for Dos. Boot the system with the floppy disk & format the drive. This will remove all the hidden partitions & make the drive whole again.
Most hard disk drive manufactures also provide software to create a bootable CD. This will also clean the drive & set it up for window. (You should back up all your data to CD or a second drive).
Other software can be used to totally clean a hard disk drive. "Darik's Boot And Nuke".
Found here: http://www.dban.org/ (Ideal for tough systems & dreaded blue screens).

Good luck Henryk14!

Replaced my hard drive on my hp lap top and i cannot load the restore disk it is hp ze4800 i dont know how to get it load error code pxe e61


HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Error: PXE-E61: Media Test Failure s.gif s.gif
This document pertains to HP or Compaq desktop computers with Windows XP. The following error message appears: PXE-E61: Media Test Failure This error is probably occurring because the main bootable hard drive is no longer "connected" to the computer and the next usable bootable device in the boot path is the network card. Use the following steps to resolve the error: NOTE: If the computer was recently moved or bumped, make sure the hard drive cables are firmly attached to the motherboard and the hard drive before using the steps in this document. Step 1: Remove all removable storage devices Remove connected devices, remove power, and restart the computer:
  1. Disconnect any, personal media drives, pocket media drives, USB or 1394 (Firewire) devices that are attached to the computer, especially USB thumb drives.
  2. Remove any CD and DVD discs from their drives.
  3. If the computer has a floppy disk drive, remove any floppy disks from the drive.
  4. Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the computer.
  5. Disconnect the power cable to the computer.
  6. With the power cable disconnected, press the power button again for five seconds. This may reset the firmware for the hard drive to its defaults .
  7. Plug in the power cable only and turn on the computer.
  8. If the error persists, go to the next step. If the computer starts without the error, one of the removable storage volumes may be preventing the computer from starting or the hard drive was not reponding. Do not leave the removable device in the computer when shutting the computer off. You are done.
Step 2: Make sure a network device is not selected as the first boot device in BIOS The computer may be attempting to boot from the network device.
  1. Turn on the computer by pressing the power button on the PC and press the F1 key repeatedly when the first screen opens.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT screen (from the menu at the top of the screen).
  3. Use the arrow keys to select the BOOT Device Priority (or similar).
  4. Press Enter .
  5. Read the instructions on the page to move any reference to a netwrok device to the bottom of the list. You should also move the optical drive (ODD) to the top of the list.
  6. Once the selections have been made, press F10 to Save settings and exit.
Step 3: Test the Hard Drive Test the hard drive using the SMART hard drive test:
  1. Press and hold the Power button for 5 Seconds to turn off the computer.
  2. Press the F1 key repeatedly after the computer is turned on. A BIOS setup utility should appear.
  3. After the BIOS Setup Utility is displayed, use the Down Arrow key to select the hard disk drive name and press Enter .
  4. Select SMART Extended Self-Test , press Enter , and wait for the test to complete.
  5. If the test fails, the hard drive should be replaced. If the test passes, go to the next step to update the BIOS.
Step 4: Update the BIOS Download and install the latest BIOS for your computer . If, after updating the BIOS and restarting the computer, the error goes away, you are done. If the error persists or a BIOS update is unavailable, go to the next step to recover the computer. Step 5: Recover the operating system To reinstall the Windows XP operating system, perform a system recovery (or reinstall Windows if the computer was upgraded to XP). You may need to start the computer from a set of recovery discs (or from a Windows Installation disc if Windows was upgraded to XP). For more information about how to recover the computer, refer to the HP support article Performing a System Recovery in Windows XP . Step 6: Repair the computer If the preceding steps do not resolve the error, the hard drive or BIOS may have failed and the computer should be serviced. if this service info does not work contact me.
