Question about Dell Inspiron B130 Notebook

I Keep Getting The Blue Screen Of Death

My computer was infected by spyware. I downloaded Spybot and began to clean the system. I saved the event that occured over 4000 times for last, but at that time it was almost four in the morning and I had class at 8, so I shut down my computer like an idiot and went to bed. The next day I went to turn it on. The Windows XP screen popped up like normal, and the thing seemed to be loading normally. Then a message came up, on what I like to call "The Blue Screen Of Death", telling me there was an error and that I had to uninstall spyware programs, etc. The screen wouldn't go away, so I hit the power button. After the loading page, it scolded me for shutting the comp down improperly and asked how I wanted to run it (in safe mode, safe mode with some stuff, regularly, etc.) I selected 1, which is safe mode, and the Blue Screen Of Death popped up again. I restarted, selected 2, and the blue screen appeared once more. Every selection I made brought up the blue screen. Someone help, I'm starting to lose my mind.

On many laptops, the makers decided to go cheap and put parts way too close to each other!!! with this in mind, because of this, people get whats called the BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH!!this is from over heating.. if u get the blue screen just turn the computer off for about 10 mins as to give it time to cool off! once ur ready to turn the laptop on, make sure all the air vents are uncovered!! if u dont then u will eventually lose the laptop all together!vents are there for good reasons..
maybe get a laptop cooling pad for when using it..
also, STOP AND DONT GO INTO WEB PAGES OR EMAILS THAT U KNOW NOTHING ABOUT!! u can download something, or simply just by entering something u do not know can cause this screen for good!

hope this helps in any way..

I have an acer that will go to a blue screen after I type in the password then it restarts itself over again the same thing!


Blue screen errors, or blue screen of death (BSOD) errors, are the most severe errors Windows can encounter. Since Windows can not recover from this kernel level error, a blue screen is displayed with the error details. The error details contain a STOP error code, which indicates the type of error.

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.

Tip

Understand BSOD and Troubleshoot



1. What is Blue Screen Of Death ?

There are major reasons too for the blue screen of death as we find BSOD in Windows Vista for a different reason. Windows Vista runs on Longhorn technology while Windows XP runs on NT technology.

We have different Booting structures for both and also the Kernal and Micro Kernal Management of both systems vary.

The WDDM (Windows Device Driver Management Principles which applies on both Os are at different levels of rigidness.

Firstly, we need to understand why this happens.
When you install Software and new programs in your computer, new entries and other changes will be made on your Registry. As more and more entries pile up, some of them may become infected with spyware, or go missing because the System does not always restore them. As a result, when the programs that use the entries need to run, your computer may suddenly process very slowly, or worse, the blue screen of death happens. All these problems can be cured with a Registry Cleanup.
The amount of changes to your registry is dependent on the user's amount of usage of the computer. A newly purchased computer will usually run very quickly, but after a few months, users find that their Computers Processing Speed may start to slow down. This is the effect of a poorly maintained registry.

2. How To Trouble shoot and prevent of Blue Screen of Death?

So, how do we get rid of blue screen death? Simply put, run a registry cleaner. The registry cleaner will find all of the problems associated with the registry and will fix them or remove the errors. Don’t be surprised at the amount of errors you find the first time to scan the registry. But, within 5 minutes, you can have all of them fixed. Then for maintenance and to ensure your computer is running without any errors, run this software weekly. This will ensure you have the blue screen of death fixed.

Good Luck.

My laptop battery doesn't hold a charge and my computer runs slow


Sounds like 2 problems. If the laptop does not hold a charge, and if the adapter wiggles, more then likely, you need a new motherboard. You can call manufacturer and see what one would cost.

2nd- Runs slow. Either you need more more Ram, and or You are infected.

You might need to do a Reformat. Be sure and do a Back-up First., because you will loose everything.

If you know how to do a back-up, save all your documents, pictures and music. If not take it to a reputable computer shop to take of this. There will be a slight charge, but they will save all your important data.

You have a spyware infection, plan and simple. Those security warnings (asking you to scan) are not part of the Windows security center.

Blue Screen


Sounds like you have a bunch of spyware and adware. If you are lucky enough to be able to save your computer, boot into safe mode with networking and download and run scans with the following programs:
AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition
Lavasoft Ad-Aware Free Edition
Spybot Search and Destroy

In Spybot, run an immunization as well which should help to prevent future "breakouts" I would also recommend setting Spybot and AVG up to do a weekly/monthly scan of your computer. You can also do this with Ad-Aware but you would need to pay for a higher version.
