Blue Screen Of Death

I can not get to my password to load up the desktop. I got my hard drive/disk replaced. Then all I did on my laptop was put internet on it, change my cursor, changed it back, installed frostwire then uninstalled frostwire. Then the blue screen of death came back. Could you tell me how to prevent this in the future and some solutions?

When you installed windows the first thing you should have done is turned on windows firewall. Than install you're network for internet connection & than antivirus software & updates. Chances are you picked up something when you installed frostwire. Just being connected to the internet with out protection was enough to catch a hitch hiker. Hence the blue screen. Since this is a new drive download and run Darik's boot & nuke software from this link: http://www.dban.org/
After you run the software shut down the system & unplug the power cord from the PC. Pull you're memory out of the system for about a minute. Reseat the memory, check all internal data cables & power connections. Close the case & plug in the power cord. Boot the system & install window's fresh. This time turn on windows firewall & as soon as you get connected to the internet install you're antivirus software. Than update windows before installing any other software other than mother board device drivers. You'll need all security patches & fixes from Microsoft.
You might receive the blue screen again, that's not abnormal in this case. Run Nuke again if you do. I have had to do this myself on some Pc's. Wait until you're system if fully updated before installing any thing else from the internet.
Everything should work out fine.

Good luck barton!

My desktop frequantaly booting what can i do


When you say frequently rebooting; Is it randomly rebooting without warning? Do you get a BSOD (Blue Screen of Death) error message? Or does the PC just reboot without any error's other than windows was not shutdown properly?

MOST random reboot issues are caused by Power issues;

-Failing Power Supply
-Blown Capacitors on the motherboard
-Insufficient power to run the system.

These would be a good place to start to troubleshoot if you do not get a Blue Screen Error Message.

-Failing Hard Drive can cause this issue as well but is usually acompanied by a Blue Screen Error of sorts.

-Failing RAM again usually accompanied by a Blue Screen Error.

You can test for failing hardware, by using Hiren's Boot Disk for diagnostic tests on your Hard Drive or Ram.

Hiren's Boot CD 15.2 - http://www.hirensbootcd.org/files/Hirens.BootCD.15.2.zip

You will want to run memtest X86 to test the Ram or Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test or SeaTools to test your hard drive.

This BootCD is not for the typical end user whom may not know there way around the features and options this Tech CD provides.

You will want to burn the Hirens Boot.ISO file to a CD (Burn Image Option) using any of your favorite flavors of burn software.

Hope this helps.

You can also download these diagnostic test individually such as memtest x86 and Hitachi's DFT or SeaTools independently from the Boot CD just by doing a google search. This might be the easier way to perform these tests for people who aren't very savvy with boot CD's.

Basically ive got a rm CL51-15 laptop and want to take out the CPU bcoz i have blue screen of death cheers looking forward to answer


hello, the blue screen of death rarely is caused by a processor, i would look at the wireless adapter first especially in cl5 i have replaced more than i can count. try using a usb wireless adapter and run the laptop and see if it crashes again. Also a corrupt windows hard rive can also cause this and a simple reformat fixes that most of the time.

Xp could not find sata hard disk


the driver is not included in the driver cab on the xp and server 2003 disks, you will need to download the drivers and put them on a floppy disk (usb floppy if you do not have an internal drive) then as the blue setup screen is loading press F6 to load the drivers.

Blue screen when trying to boot windows


you have the "blue screen of death" i had this same problem and the easiest way to fix it is to take the hard drive out and put it into another computer back up all files you want to keep on it have a boot disk for the right windows operating system on it use the boot disk with it once it is back in the right computer and then put all the files you saved back on it. the blue screen of death occurs when there is a registry error on your computer. if the blue screen of death appears again then you need a new computer.

Blue screen on death then windows wont load


Hi Dear,
This is Azeem Inam. So you are having a blue screen when you try to start your windows. its not all the time but when your computer restarts it says no system disk present. Dear you'll have to do 2 things with your motherboard in order to solve above stated problem.
1. Change the Slot of your RAM. And;
2. Change the position of jumper # J32 written as CMOS, to the one free pin and the centeral pin. it is found near the battery. start the computer, it may not start now replace the jumper to its original position again. It will reset all settings. and you are done.

Thanks for your contact. We hope to have a better response from you in future.

Installing XP on HP m8120n


The Blue Screen of Death (also known as a stop error, BSOD, bluescreen, or Blue Screen of Doom) is an error screen displayed by some operating systems, most notably Microsoft Windows, after encountering a critical system error which can cause the system to shut down, to prevent damage.
Bluescreens on NT-based Windows systems can be caused by poorly written device drivers or malfunctioning hardware. In the Win9x era, incompatible DLLs or bugs in the kernel of the operating system could also cause bluescreens.
Bluescreens can also be caused by physical faults such as faulty memory, power supply issues, overheating of components, or hardware running beyond its specification limits. Bluescreens have been present in all Windows-based operating systems since Windows 3.1; earlier, OS/2 and MS-DOS suffered the Black Screen of Death, and early builds of Windows Vista displayed the Red Screen of Death after a boot loader error.

I hope it helps!!!
