Here are some solutions that I have for you.

HARD DRIVE PROBLEM

This sounds like a bad hard drive. What make of hard drive is in it?
Figure out what brand hard drive it is first. Then go to the website of the manufacturer.
While you are on the site look for software for hard drive repair. It could be listed in many ways. Download the windows version if you have another computer to test this in. If you do not have another computer to test this in you will have to use the Dos version. The instructions will come with the software.
Then you will go through these steps.
Do you have another computer that you can use to check the hard drive? If you have another computer or access to another computer you can download a hard drive utility that can diagnose and possible repair the hard drive. Is it a SATA hard drive? If it is a SATA hard drive you can plug it directly into another computer that has a SATA cable. If it is not SATA you will need to buy a converter so that you can hook it up to the other computer. This will be an external slim hard drive enclosure. A desktop hard drive can be put in another desktop and used as a slave drive. Just make sure that you look at the back of the Hard Drive and make put the jumper on the slave pins. Then you can run the test through the other computer to test the Hard Drive. The test will let you know if the Hard Drive is bad or not. If you can see your files on the drive you might want to back them up before you start the test. If it comes back as good go to the next step.

FIX BOOT
You can boot it up with the recovery CD and run through it as if you were doing a setup and then when the second repair comes up..... hit repair. This should repair any problem with the operating system. If you want to try the simple way... use the first repair that comes up. When the screen comes up with a blinking curser hit the number 1 then Enter........ When it ask you for a password hit enter. There should not be a password unless someone has put one in it. If there is a password it should be your master password.
Then type fixmbr and hit enter. This will fix your master boot record. If that does not work use the second repair. Sounds complicated but it is not.

Hello, ive just bought a brand new motherboard (GS7610 ULTRA) and i have installed it into my case with all my components and when i go to start my computer up, it goes pasted the boot menu and then i get...


Are you trying to install this OS (Operating System) , or is it already installed on a hard drive?
If you are installing it, make sure you change the boot order to the optical drive (DVD drive). If it's already installed, was it installed with an OEM disk? If yes, then you might need a new Windows XP disc. This is because, when using an OEM disc, if you change the hard drive or motherboard, it doesn't really work.

Blue screen message, Dumping Physical memory.


It's really hard to say at this stage, and there's many more tests that you'll need to run in order to try and narrow down the cause of the problem(s). They could be anything from a potential virus infection causing conflicts, an incorrect video or audio driver being installed, to something corrupt within your windows OS, to potentially being something hardware related like your hard drive, or as you suspect, motherboard. You can try narrowing one of the major problems down, by backing up any personal data to CD/DVD or external hard drive, and then erasing the hard drive and reinstalling a fresh copy of windows and try reproducing the problem there. At this stage of the issue, it's all about trying to isolate where the fault is coming from, and this step will eliminate a lot of possibilities.

I doubt it is a virus as you have not indicated doing anything that a virus could have been transmitted to your system. The blue screen of death at boot up time simply means the files that find your operating system are not working properly. Specifically, if you want to Google them they are NTLDR (NT Boot Loader), Boot.ini (tells the system the name and location of your system) NTDETECT.COM (inventories your hardware) and HAL.DLL also monitors hardware. If you could get those three files on a disk-NTLDR, Boot.ini and NTDETECT.COM, then it would boot. They are located in the C:\ drive of any computer with windows but you have to release the hidden files button first...best thing to do is go to the Microsoft Knowledge Base at support.microsoft.com and research your error and those files..you're not the only one this has happened to so there may be a fix in the knowledge base. Besides its good practice to use the Knowledge Base as you can find out about any answer on windows there..good luck. Please rate this solutionl.

Swapped hard drive into new casw and now it wont boot up


This is due to a hardware conflict.
The system drivers on the hard drive are for the old mother board and devices,You will have to reinstall OS while it is install on the new mother board,The computer cannot boot to a drive that is loaded to another system unless all the devices and drive are identical.

Please rate this a fixya

Hello suresh_7chan,
This can be either a software problem or a hardware proble.
Most likely hardware problem is the primary hdd. (Hard disk drive).
To check the hardware end of things. Re-check all data & power connections within the system, paying close attention to your primary hard disk drive. Most blue screens leave a message. If you can write down the message from a blue screen it can be helpful. (Some blue screens go by very fast & it may be too hard to write down the message generated by windows). Another suggestion. If your hdd is large enough, 80GB or more. You can load your windows CD into your CD-Rom drive & boot to the windows CD. In the few screens that windows will display during setup. You'll have the option to create a second partition within the free space of your hdd. Create a new partition & allow windows to do a quick format.
Once completed, install windows into that new partition. Up date windows to SP2, at least. If windows runs correctly without blue screens or sudden restarts, than your old windows is either infected with a virus/worm or just messed up. install antivirus software & run a full system scan. You can use windows disk manager software to change the old C:\ to something like G:\. To run windows disk manager software, click the start button & open run. Type, diskmgmt.msc into the run window & click ok.
Again, if your new install of windows functions correctly & no virus has been found you can copy your old data to your new install of windows. (This is so you do not loose your data).

Problem of Window XP installation


usually when installation of windows fails is from more than one reason and lets hope that ur hard drive is not damaged (contains bad sectors).
try these steps :
1- use a different windows cd and a different cd rom if u can find one.
2- change the sequense of drives by changing their jumper positions and data cables ( master, slave)
3- try to clear cmos with the jumper located usually near the mainboards battery (short it for 3 seconds)
4- try ( low-level format) to ur hard drive and reinstall windows.

if the message is still seen then your hard drive could be seriously damaged.

Boot problem


Was the operating system installed on another computer? Or a computer with different hardware? If so the drivers for the hardware are not configured properly on the HD or in the BIOS. If this is the case you should format the HD and re-install the OS.
