Blue Screen Error Message

My computer will begin to startup normally, and then I get a blue screen error message that says "STOP: c0000Z1B {Registry File Failure} The registry cannot load the hive (file)...\SystemRoot\system32\Config\DEFAULT or its log or alternate. It is corrupt, absent, or not writable. Beginning dump of physical memory. Physical memory dump complete." And then the computer reboots. Also, even when the computer is connected through the AC charger, it still shuts off randomly. Is it fixable? I don't really want to buy a new laptop.

    Thanks! I actually did call HP and they said to just try and re-install windows. That seemed to do the trick. I figured that it had something to do with my hard drive.

Be cautious, most manufacturers set Windows to power down the hard drive on laptops to increase battery life. It saves battery life but all the turning off and on puts stress on the motors and other moving parts. I have a pretty good side business replacing laptop hard drives after 1.5 to 2 years of use. Something caused Windows to fail, could be a virus, a bad software driver or program or a hard drive beginning to show the symptoms of mechanical wear. I strongly suggest you keep regular backups of any data or pictures you value and check Windows and make sure the hard drive isn?t turning off too soon. In Windows XP go to Start, Settings, Control Panel and double left click on the Power Options icon. In the Power Schemes tab make sure the Turn of hard disks setting is set to at least one hour.

Your hard drive crashed. You need to buy a new hard drive and restore your computer using the restore disks. You can buy a hard drive here: http://www.interproshop.com/commerce/catalog/product.jsp?product_id=13055&czuid=1167865660865 They also sell larger hard drives. If you dont have a restore disk, you'll need to contact HP and they'll send you one. http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/softwareCategory?product=423721&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&submit.y=9&submit.x=8&lang=en&cc=us

It looks like you're encountering an endless reboot? Here's what to do to find the actual error message.

  1. Turn on the computer, and press F8 after the POST screen but before Windows attempts to start to access the advanced startup options.
  2. Select "Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure" and press Enter.
You should now get a blue screen with an error message and error codes. Please write these codes down and report back.

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 with error message on startup

Most likely problem is a physical problem with the hard drive, but could be plenty of other things. Best bet is to back up your information (if possible) and do a fresh windows install, if you continue to get the message after a clean windows install, your hard drive is not stable, and has a problem.
