Check the size of Random Access Memory (RAM) in your computer. Its small size could be the reason for this problem as many of today's software need large amount of memory to operate in smooth manner. Additional RAM will also increase the efficiency of your computing particularly for gaming.
• Excessive use of computer or a malfunctioning cooling system can make computer/laptop overheated. Whenever system is heated, its efficiency will go down. BSOD is one possible consequence of over heated system. Keep fan of your computer in fully functional mode.
• Registry is the most vital part of Win 7. Corrupt registry is the biggest reason for BSOD in Win 7. One way is to clean registry manually but manual tricks could wreck your system completely if you are not a top notch computer expert. More appropriate way is to buy a good registry cleaner reginout and PC optimizer

Hello to everyone, I have been reading forums for


This is a typical sign of a defective hard drive.Your hard drive might or might not be repairable, depending on the degree of damage.
I would recommend that you use a live CD (such as this one: http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/download.html) to boot up your computer & run a hard disk diagnostic tool like HDD Regenerator. It might take several hours (sometimes days) to fix the damage. If this did not help, then you will have to replace the hard drive.

Hi There,

I just experienced the same problem you did concerning the partmgr.sys blue screen error. I am installing Windows XP Pro SP2 on a pretty old Dell Latitude LS (upgrading it from Win 2000). The XP installation disk gives me the option to format in NTFS, FAT, and both formats in a "quick" mode. I usually do not recommend using the quick mode, however, after trying both NTFS and FAT and receiving the blue screen, I decided to try NTFS (quick). That has allowed me to actually get further into the installation, so you may want to try that.

That error is your partition manager, Go to this site and download Partition Magic

This normally happens when you have got more that 1 partition on your hdd....

Try Partition Magic, and see if resolves your problem

Good luck

Partmgr sys


did the computer originally come with windows xp or an older operating system?looks like you may have some hardware issues.download ultimate boot cd from this link.Follow the directs to burn the image to disc.Boot from the CD and run memtest to check your memory,then run any of the hard drive diagnostic tools from the hard drive manufacturer.Let me know what happens after that.If none of the hardware fails I will recommend using one of the hard drive formatting tools to do a low level format on your hard drive and try installing the operating system again.note,if you have files that you need on the hard rive you'll lose them if you reinstall the operating system without backing them up.

Partmgr.sys


Can you boot into safe mode? You can access safe mode by pressing F8 before the windows logo appears on start up.If you can access safe mode without any errors,then the problem is likely to be caused by a driver.Let me know what happens.
