Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

My E-Machine is not even a year old and it has given me the "BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH" as I have heard it called. I tried to recover my previous stuff to a certain date. It still blue screened me. So then i was going to just format the entire computer. But now for some reason I can't get it to load from the dvd/cd rom drive. If I do F8 advanced options.... I still get blue screened. I'm at my wits end. The only option I see right now is to use my recovery disk and format computer... but my stinking machine won't load from dvd/cd drive. I have changed BIOS settings to load from that drive but it still won't do. HELP PLEASE before my e-machine finds itself e-victed.

Blue Screen of Death


The stop error screen or bug check screen commonly called the blue screen of death (also known as a BSoD, bluescreen, or "blue screen of doom.

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 Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.
Often, if you're lucky, the problem will resolve itself with a simple reboot and you may never have to worry about it again. More typically though, the BSOD is a harbinger of trouble and you may find yourself faced with another and another until you throw up your hands in frustration... but all is not lost.

So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. This is if you are able to boot into safe mode (Press and hold the F8 key during boot up). 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. There is a neat program on the net that can fix this problem, it's called DriverFinder, you can get it here.

If this doesn't work or you can't think or find the corrupt driver you could use System Restore (If it is enabled) to go back to a time where you didn't get the error. To use the system restore utility, go to 'start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore.

Sometimes though the blue Screen of death can be caused by faulty or loose rame cards. Check that your RAM modules are inserted correctly and arn't clogged with dust.

After using the computer for a few months or years, the hard disk gets fragmented with temporary files, or fragmented files. This will result in slowness of the hard disk and may even result in a computer crash eventually. You can maintain your harddisk by defragmenting your hard disk and deleting unwanted files frequently.

If you see Fatal OE exceptions and VXD errors then it is due to the video card. To solve this reduce the video display resolution. You can do so by going to the control panel and display settings. Choose the correct screen resolution to match your monitor.

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) and Computer Restarting Constantly


A very common issue, especially with old computers, is that of crashing and frequent restarting of the machine.
A common accompniment to this issue is the dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).

The BSOD will tend to occur randomly and will not even let you reinstall the Operating System on the computer.

There are a few things suggertions I would like to share to help overcome this issue.

I suggest that you keep the machine shut down for some time (30 min) and allow it to cool.

Also, open the case and use a Vaccuum Cleaner to blow off the dust on the Motherboard, Power Supply, CPU Fan and other internal components of the CPU.

Try to keep the machine is an Airconditioned Room with the temp set to a relatively cool temperature.

In case airconditioning is not available, you might want to use a table-fan for blowing air into the unit.

These issues are mostly due to blown capacitors on the Motherboard.
The steps mentioned above will allow you to restore your operating system on the machine.
The BSOD and rebooting indicates a hardware error i.e faulty capacitors or perhaps issue with the RAM.

The permanent solution, however, is to replace the faulty capacitors with new ones.

I suggest that you visually inspect the Capacitors on the motherboard.
The blown ones will have a curved, arched top and perhaps a black, powdery, burnt look.



If that is the case, get the capacitors replaced first.512c17f.jpg

If it looks like this picture, What your seeing is colloquially known as the 'blue screen of death.' It usually means that whatever kind of corruption is in your file system is only repairable through a full format. But first follow these steps:
If you are able to access the BIOS menu (usually holding down either F2 or F12 on startup) try booting in safe mode. If that has no success, try booting from your operating system disc. This problem is common in old computers and is a sign of the end of its life-cycle. Consider purchasing a newer model.

Blue screen error. Is there a way to recover information int he hard drive?


The BSOD (Blue Screen Of Death) doesn't affect the data on the HDD. Only the files that were in use at that exact moment MAY have been damaged. In rest, you don't have to worry because your information is still there.
