No programs added. Microsoft updates can crash to BSOD 0xdeaddead 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000 0x00000000. When I restart it gos to bsod above. Will be working on a file and it will crash to the bsod above. Not every Microsoft update will crash in the process of installing but some have. No new hardware or software has been added for sometime now. Streets and Trips has been loaded and taken off several times because it will not run with out a startup error. Everything other than that works fine.

Reboot problems


Hi Dear,
The problem you discussed is hardware related, IT has to do with the cmos battery or the Sata cable.

Disconnect/Connect CMOS battery and reconfigure BIOS settings again based on defaults
- Replace "ALL" SATA Cables and reconnect all drives

Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) and Computer Restarting Constantly


A very common issue, especially with old computers, is that of crashing and frequent restarting of the machine.
A common accompniment to this issue is the dreaded Blue Screen of Death (BSOD).

The BSOD will tend to occur randomly and will not even let you reinstall the Operating System on the computer.

There are a few things suggertions I would like to share to help overcome this issue.

I suggest that you keep the machine shut down for some time (30 min) and allow it to cool.

Also, open the case and use a Vaccuum Cleaner to blow off the dust on the Motherboard, Power Supply, CPU Fan and other internal components of the CPU.

Try to keep the machine is an Airconditioned Room with the temp set to a relatively cool temperature.

In case airconditioning is not available, you might want to use a table-fan for blowing air into the unit.

These issues are mostly due to blown capacitors on the Motherboard.
The steps mentioned above will allow you to restore your operating system on the machine.
The BSOD and rebooting indicates a hardware error i.e faulty capacitors or perhaps issue with the RAM.

The permanent solution, however, is to replace the faulty capacitors with new ones.

I suggest that you visually inspect the Capacitors on the motherboard.
The blown ones will have a curved, arched top and perhaps a black, powdery, burnt look.



If that is the case, get the capacitors replaced first.512c17f.jpg

My dell 4700 PC, when I restart it and it goes to the windows screen, If I choose a user it goes to the blue screen immediately. I have my XP disk to reinstall but not sure if or when I can use it.


A blue screen often called Blue Screen Of Death, BSOD, indicates that something is wrong with the computer. Usually it is a driver that is not correct or corrupt.
You need to specifically identify that the BSOD message is. If the system reboots before you can read it, boot the system while hitting F8 many times per second until you see a black and white screen with a number of options. Towards the bottom will be one regarding automatic restart on error. Uncheck that option. Now the BSOD will stay on the screen and you can get help.
I hope this helps. I do this for fun & feedback not $$$

I TURN MY KIDS PC ON AND IT STARTS UP BUT THEN IT GETS TO WINDOWS AND IT LOOKS LIKE IT IS ABOUT TO COME COME UP BUT GOS TO THE BLUE SCREEN FOR 1 SECOUND AND STARTS BACK UP AGAIN OVER AND OVER.


A blue screen or Blue Screen Of Death, BSOD, is generally caused by a corrupt driver or a bad software installation.
First, you need to determine the STOP code that is on that screen.
  • Start in safe mode, press F8 repeatably as the computer starts up,
  • check Disable automatic restart on system failure (This prevents Windows from automatically restarting if an error causes Windows to fail.)

OK, now the BSOD will stay there so you can determine what caused your problem. Report back the stop code and any information about a driver that caused the problem so we can be of further help.

Continouse restarting


This is usually caused by a BSOD error. If you boot with F8 (hit it several times a second once the computer is powered on), one of the choices is to boot without automatic restart on errors. This will reveal the BSOD which you might be able to fix.
Post back what it says for further help.

My pc would start up, then flash this blue screen for a milisecond, then start up again


Log into Windows Safe Mode (F8) and turn it off Auto Restart by doing the following:
  • Right Click on “My Computer”
  • “Properties”
  • “Advanced” tab
  • and under the headline “Startup and Recovery”,
  • “Settings”
  • uncheck “Automatically Restart” box
  • press Ok.

Now the BSOD will not disappear and you can begin to fix the problem. To solve a BSOD problem go here:

My PC boots up and then restarts. There is no set pattern to this however. It may be on for 2 minutes or 8 hours before it does this.I've tested the power supply, it's fine. Any advice?


One of the programs set to be loaded at boot fails, you get a BSOD and the pc restarts. You need to find what the BSOD says to stop all of that.
To see the BSOD you need to stop the pc auto-restarting:   Start / Control Panel / System  /Advanced / Startup and Recovery / Settings... > under System Failure un-check "Automatically restart"

Blue screen of death. unable to download drivers. can not get to safe mode. cannot reload orperating system disks.


First off, note down all relevant information when you see a BSOD flash across the screen. This includes the error number and friendly name from the 'bugcheck' section of the stop error (see above), and any file names specified in the 'driver information' section.
If the BSOD comes up on the screen for a split-second before the PC restarts and wipes all the useful information away, we need to change some settings within WinXP. In most cases, it should be possible to stop your PC from automatically restarting when it develops a major error, allowing you enough time to jot down the BSOD error message. If you are using WindowsXP, right click on my computer > Properties > Select the 'Advanced' tab > and under 'startup and recovery' click the 'settings' button. This will open a new window, and under the 'System Failure' heading, uncheck 'Automatically restart.' Continuing on, attempt to restart the computer normally into Windows. If the BSOD occurred while booting Windows, you may be taken to a troubleshooting menu and will have to select 'attempt to start Windows normally.' If your computer starts correctly, continue using it and store the error information for later reference. If the BSOD reoccurs at random or irregular periods, see Section D below on troubleshooting intermittent stop errors.
If your system does not start correctly or the stop message happens again, reboot the system. When the POST (memory checking) screen comes up, press F8 repeatedly. This will bring you to the Windows advanced options menu.
In the Windows advanced options menu choose 'safe mode' to attempt to boot into Windows Safe mode. Safe mode loads Windows XP with a minimal set of drivers and no automatically loaded software. If faulty software or drivers are causing your BSOD problem, safe mode should load correctly. If safe mode loads correctly, refer to Section A below on 'troubleshooting software stop messages.'
If safe mode does not load correctly, and/or you get the same stop message upon attempting safe mode, it's time to try the 'restore last known good configuration' option in the advanced options menu.
Restart your computer, pressing 'F8' again to load the advanced options menu and select 'last known good configuration (your most recent settings that worked).' This uses Windows XP's built in system restore utility to restore the most recent save point, which should be the last time you installed any drivers or other software. If your system boots normally after this operation, hopefully your problem has been fixed.
If you are still receiving a Blue Screen Of Death after the above procedures, or if system restore was disabled on your system, note down any new information on the error and start thinking. Did you install any new hardware or software just before this problem occurred? The driver information section of the BSOD may help with this.
If you did install new hardware or software, and you think you know what it might be that is causing the problem, this gives you a big boost in resolving the situation.
Otherwise, proceed to the advanced troubleshooting sections below. Chances are your error is hardware or system file based and will require more effort to repair.
Specific Repair Instructions
If you have a reoccurring Blue Screen Of Death or crashing problem, and can't use Windows effectively because of it, it's time to look at more specific methods of troubleshooting your problem. Depending on the results of the basic troubleshooting steps above, you should have a good idea of whether the problem that is causing the stop messages is related to software or drivers you have installed, or is a hardware or system file issue.
Essentially, if you can't boot into Windows XP safe mode because of crashes or Blue Screens Of Death, you likely either have a hardware error or one or more essential system files is corrupted or missing. If you can boot into Windows XP safe mode, but get constant or frequent BSOD's when running XP normally, you have a software or device driver problem.

Make sure that if you added any RAM to your computer which is a common cause for BSOD that you added the correct RAM for your computer and that it is equally distributed in the ports meaning each port for the RAM has the equal amount of RAM on each side (eg, one stick 1GB, and the other has 1GB, etc).
