Question about Gateway 4520GZ Notebook

BSOD Getting the following BSOD. Haven't installed any new hardware or software. Screen shows up mostly during startup, and when coming back from idle (and goes past so fast I can't see it). However the following screen shows up during Defrag. ====================================================== A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps: Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press f8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode. Technical Information: *** STOP: 0x000000d1 (0x031c6e33, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xf7318678) *** w22n51.sys - address f7318678 base at f72f4000, datestamp 3ff54d71 beginning dumb of physical memory. physical memory dump complete. contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assitance. ====================================================== Ran memtest86+, and the RAM is fine. Ran Ccleaner, Hijack this, sbybot search and destory and adaware SE, and none of them helped. Ran windows disk check utility and no problems. Anybody have other suggestions? BSOD started showing up immediately after we moved.

    Yea, I actually tried upgrading the driver, and that didn't do it, and then I tried disabling the wireless card completely and that didn't do it. There is a BSOD I get on startup, and it goes into and endless reboot cycle unless I put it in safe mode. I can't get the text of this BSOD, even though I disabled automatic restart. *sigh* I think I will just have to uninstall the OS

Apparently w22n51.sys is an Intel driver. It looks like this problem has been resolved by installing the latest Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG drivers that you can find here...

http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Filter_Results.aspx?strOSs=All&strTypes=all&ProductID=1637&OSFullName=All%20Operating%20Systems&lang=eng

Another resolution I've seen posted in forums is to disable the Intel software or uninstalling it completely and allowing Windows to mange wireless connection.

Hope this helps!

    Those BSOD's that you cannot read before another reboot starts are hard are a pain! But before reinstalling you might be able to identify the BSOD and fix the problem by booting in to Safe Mode and looking in the Event Logs.
    Start
    -> Control Panel
    -> Adminstrative Tools
    -> Event Viewer
    -> System
    -> Look for Event ID's
    1001 & 1003

    Look up in Google or on Microsoft's website. Or post them here and I can help you research.

EP-3VSA2 - based on PC brakes operation with BSoD randomly: BSoD may occurs sometimes during Windows startup and sometimes seconds after an hour or two of operation. What is the matter?


Remove all USB attached devices.


You may need to roll back system with System Restore. Under Safe Mode (press F8 during boot and choose Safe Mode).
Win 7 - Start > Start > Search type System Restore.
XP - Is Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Restore. Now choose a date prior to problem. You may have to try a few dates.


Uninstall last program(s) that was installed, again in safe mode.


To eliminate possible bad RAM. Unplug PC, open case, and remove all RAM. Test one DIMM at time, one slot at a time.

Re-install Windows. Clean install works best, but all data will be lost.


Lastly you may have other hardware problems. If it does another blue screen after reloading windows, especially with a clean install.

My computer says stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203,0x86f6e330,0xc0000102,0x00000000) `


The most important Blue Screen of Death troubleshooting step you can take is to ask yourself what you just did.:
1) Did you just install a new program or a piece of hardware, update a driver, install an update, etc.? If so, there's a very good chance that the change you made caused the BSOD:Startup using Last Known Good Configuration to undo recent registry and driver changes.Use System Restore to undo recent system changes.Roll Back device driver to version prior to your driver update.
2) Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death, especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
3) Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
4) Return hardware settings to default in Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so, the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set to default.
Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause a Blue Screen of Death.
5) Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
6) Use Reginout to fix BSOD stop errors

Blue screen of death. unable to download drivers. can not get to safe mode. cannot reload orperating system disks.


First off, note down all relevant information when you see a BSOD flash across the screen. This includes the error number and friendly name from the 'bugcheck' section of the stop error (see above), and any file names specified in the 'driver information' section.
If the BSOD comes up on the screen for a split-second before the PC restarts and wipes all the useful information away, we need to change some settings within WinXP. In most cases, it should be possible to stop your PC from automatically restarting when it develops a major error, allowing you enough time to jot down the BSOD error message. If you are using WindowsXP, right click on my computer > Properties > Select the 'Advanced' tab > and under 'startup and recovery' click the 'settings' button. This will open a new window, and under the 'System Failure' heading, uncheck 'Automatically restart.' Continuing on, attempt to restart the computer normally into Windows. If the BSOD occurred while booting Windows, you may be taken to a troubleshooting menu and will have to select 'attempt to start Windows normally.' If your computer starts correctly, continue using it and store the error information for later reference. If the BSOD reoccurs at random or irregular periods, see Section D below on troubleshooting intermittent stop errors.
If your system does not start correctly or the stop message happens again, reboot the system. When the POST (memory checking) screen comes up, press F8 repeatedly. This will bring you to the Windows advanced options menu.
In the Windows advanced options menu choose 'safe mode' to attempt to boot into Windows Safe mode. Safe mode loads Windows XP with a minimal set of drivers and no automatically loaded software. If faulty software or drivers are causing your BSOD problem, safe mode should load correctly. If safe mode loads correctly, refer to Section A below on 'troubleshooting software stop messages.'
If safe mode does not load correctly, and/or you get the same stop message upon attempting safe mode, it's time to try the 'restore last known good configuration' option in the advanced options menu.
Restart your computer, pressing 'F8' again to load the advanced options menu and select 'last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked).' This uses Windows XP's built in system restore utility to restore the most recent save point, which should be the last time you installed any drivers or other software. If your system boots normally after this operation, hopefully your problem has been fixed.
If you are still receiving a Blue Screen Of Death after the above procedures, or if system restore was disabled on your system, note down any new information on the error and start thinking. Did you install any new hardware or software just before this problem occurred? The driver information section of the BSOD may help with this.
If you did install new hardware or software, and you think you know what it might be that is causing the problem, this gives you a big boost in resolving the situation.
Otherwise, proceed to the advanced troubleshooting sections below. Chances are your error is hardware or system file based and will require more effort to repair.
Specific Repair Instructions
If you have a reoccurring Blue Screen Of Death or crashing problem, and can't use Windows effectively because of it, it's time to look at more specific methods of troubleshooting your problem. Depending on the results of the basic troubleshooting steps above, you should have a good idea of whether the problem that is causing the stop messages is related to software or drivers you have installed, or is a hardware or system file issue.
Essentially, if you can't boot into Windows XP safe mode because of crashes or Blue Screens Of Death, you likely either have a hardware error or one or more essential system files is corrupted or missing. If you can boot into Windows XP safe mode, but get constant or frequent BSOD's when running XP normally, you have a software or device driver problem.

Make sure that if you added any RAM to your computer which is a common cause for BSOD that you added the correct RAM for your computer and that it is equally distributed in the ports meaning each port for the RAM has the equal amount of RAM on each side (eg, one stick 1GB, and the other has 1GB, etc).

Windows xp won't boot up and i end up getting this blue screen with the a stop error on it...


Sometimes BSOD are caused either by Software or Hardware problems, you can start running the diagnostic test first on the computer to check for hardware problems.

Try removing any external devices first (Ex. USB devices) then run some diagnostic test:

1. Turn on computer
2. Tap F12 continuously on the Dell logo screen
3. Select Diagnostics
4. Follow on screen instructions
4. Wait for the test results (approximately 10-15min.)

If all test passed no problems have been found, it means there is no problem with hardware/computer. The problem is now pointing out to be software problem. Solution will be restoring it back to factory settings.

1. Turn on computer
2. Tap F8 continuously on the Dell logo screen
3. Select Repair computer
4. Follow instructions... then select "Dell Factory Image Restore " on the recovery options
5. Follow instructions
6. Wait for 20-25min. and computer now is back to factory settings

Hope this helps

When i turn the computer on it goes to the blue screen of death


Have you installed anything lately? Hardware or software? What you can do is try to log into safe mode pressing F8 during the initial startup. I would use system restore to a date before this happened. In the case you do know what activity you were doing when this BSOD occured then retrace your steps and you should be good. let me know if this works. Safe mode is a state that the OS boots that it only runs the bare essentials to boot. This mode is used for virus removal mostly but it is also helpful in these situations. Let me know if this works

Windows BSOD on all restarts, even in Safe Mode and even if I start with video in VGA mode. Stop code is 0x0000007E plus four more codes in parentheses. During Safe Mode restart the last file to appear on...


7E is a memory issue or general driver fault. It's windows way of saying "i dunno it just died". If you have Dell diagnostics, run a full system check, to ensure the hardware is ok. If you get no errors, then you have a driver fault in windows. This is From Microsoft:
---
If the following conditions are true, the issue might be a hardware incompatibility with Windows XP because all the installed drivers are Windows XP drivers:
  • You receive the STOP 0x7E error when you first start the computer.
  • You receive the STOP 0x7E error after you run the Setup program.
  • You did not install any third-party drivers during the installation of Windows.
However, if you receive the STOP 0x7E error after you upgrade from Windows 2000 Professional, or if you recently added a new hardware device, this issue might be an incompatible driver or an incompatible hardware device.
---
Basically, the 7E error is a defective driver. You will likely have to get your computer recovered by a professional shop, or if you have nothing important on it, attempt to reformat and reinstall. It is unfair that Windows has borked your computer and they wont fix it. I hope I was able to at least point you in the right direction.

Kernel stack inpage error


Hi Janhams,

Unfortunately the screen you are seeing has a name for it "the BSOD" or blue screen of death (click here for more info). by your description of the clicking sounds id say that it is an intermediate to serious hardware problem, but there are so many reasons for the BSOD that its hard to nail it down to just one.
That said the BSOD can happen because of conflicting software and/or hardware failures. Think back a bit and try to remember if you put any new software on the pc before this started happening. If you did, try uninstalling that software.

If the answer is no then:

If it were my PC as soon as i see the BSOD I would replace the RAM memory and wait to see if it happens again. You can find the RAM just inside the CPU its an easy job (couple of screws and your done) and i can walk you through it if you like.
If it did happen again I would reformat the hard drive and again wait to see if the BSOD shows its ugly head.
If you follow the two steps above and you still get the BSOD then you know that its a more serious hardware problem and needs some hands on maintenance by a professional.


If you choose to reformat and want to do it yourself please click on my profile and ask me How do i reformat.

Bsod 0xdeaddead. restart and when it wants to.


No programs added. Microsoft updates can crash to BSOD 0xdeaddead 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000. When I restart it gos to bsod above. Will be working on a file and it will crash to the bsod above. Not every Microsoft update will crash in the process of installing but some have. No new hardware or software has been added for sometime now. Streets and Trips has been loaded and taken off several times because it will not run with out a startup error. Everything other than that works fine.
