Dell pc giving blue screen -issue with recent Windows update?

Hi-

I have gotten some blue screen error messages on my Dell Desktop at home.

It was after the last automatic windows update, so I did a full back up and a system restore to the day before the windows update. Update was 7/9 (a malicious software detector or something), so I did a restore as of 7/7.

Have you heard any issues with recent windows updates? I turned off the Windows Auto update feature for now.

    Thanks, Mohammed.


    I did a system restore to the date before the first time I got the blue screen message which was the same day of the last windows update, which I noted just in case it happened again.



    So, the system restore should have taken care of the issue and I should turn the Auto Updates back on, then?



    I also backed up all the files and settings.



    Thanks,

    SJ

Dear SherriJ:

Some time you might get this issues with the updates if they doesn't install properly or the computer turns off while instaiing updates.

However you can select last known good configuration of restore you computer to earlier time.

I would recommend you to keep the automatic updates on that will help you keep your computer in a good state.

Regards,

Mohammed

also while you are at it reset BIOS by remove battery from motherboard and/or switching jumper setting.

Blue Screen Error Message


Looks like you've been getting two different Stop errors...

The 1st error, 0X00000024, aka Stop 0x24, is a Windows 2000 error. (XP is just an updated version of 2000) Microsoft gives an explanation here.

For the 2nd error, starting with 0x000000ED, Microsoft's solution is here, with additional help here.

Blue Screen error


Try to boot the PC without the XP Home CD in the CD drive, and keep pressing the F8 key until it comes up with a boot menu that includes a Safe Mode option.

If you had the XP Pro CD I'd suggest doing a recovery, but XP Home doesn't have that option I don't think.

You may have to try a few times until the boot menu appears. Don't hold the F8 key down - keep pressing it!

When you get into Safe Mode, right click on My Computer and choose Properties. Then go to Hardware tab (i think - not in winXP right now) and choose device manager. Just remove the Video Card from the list altogether, and then restart. Should force it to use generic video card drivers.

then check your video card model and look for the updated driver
