    I have Re-Booted in Safe Mode. The ONLY disk I have is a XP (Home Ed) SP2...and I have Installed SP3...Got a BS before that said; AutoChk.exe Not Found...I went to Windows and Found it, but in wouldn't run? Is there a "Repair Program" Built-In the XP Disk??...I have also been told to Run the Windows Configuration Utility, but all those DOS Commands Look "Greek to me"....Gotta be another "Door" to go in??

Try rebooting your computer on safe mode to fix minor problems. If this dosent help you may need to run your recovery disk or try re-installing your operating system. Chances are your system files are corrupted or may have a problem.

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 Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.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.

    I have an e machine model t3265 it keeps just restarting i pressed the f11 button when i turn it on does nothing but keep restarting trying to get back to factory default help me please thank you also i...


    Sorry to hear you're computer is acting up.

    Turn the computer off.
    When you turn the computer on tap the F8 key(at the top of the keyboard) once every second.
    If you get the Advanced options screen choose Last known good configuration by using the arrow keys on your keyboard.

    If the computer continues to reboot then do the F8 thing again but this time choose Do not reboot on system error(don't remember exact wording). If you're getting a blue screen, what is the STOP error code shown on the screen?

    HP had blue screen and said it would shut down. Problem is that it does turn off, so that it can be re-booted. Have tried to shut off PC, but continues to come on and not start.


    Hold the power button in for 10 to 15 seconds for hard shut down if that doesn't work unplug power for about 5 minutes then plug power back in and see what happens

    I have an Dell inspiron 1525, I recently updated either my windows or my windows secerity program (can't remember) anyways it told me to restat my pc. So I did i'm guessing it was never done down loading...


    It sounds like it is confused and has lost some of the registry entries, like we would have an index to find the files. Hopefully they are all still there.
    Press F8 as it boots up, this should get you into a sub menu that allows you to use Safe Mode or Recovery. Try safe mode first as Windows will search for the "missing" files and repair the registry. If that doesn't work try Recover and follow the prompts. (That may only work under F11).
    Hope that fixes it.
