Blue screen means hardware problem, Try to defrag your hardware possible bad sector problem. Just follow the procedure as follow: Click Start> Programs>Accessories>Disk Deframenter.

After opening fragment's system select the drive by highlighted the available drive and click defragment button. Just wait until done. It will automatically fix the bad sector if not so critical.

If the problem persist during the defragment, there is a critical problem with your harddrive.

The Dr. Watson debugger program logs all information related to failed processes to the Drwtsn32.log file. In addition to this, the debugger program can be configured to create memory dump files related to the failed processes. You can refer these dump files to analyze the reason behind a process failure.
Perform the following steps to configure Dr. Watson as the default debugger program to record user-mode program errors:

  1. Open Start menu, select Run, type Drwtsn32.exe -I and then press Enter. This command sets Dr. Watson as the default debugger.

Since the drive crashed in the middle of a data transfer it probably has a damaged directory. Try connecting the drive to your Mac and run DiskWarrior on the drive to repair the directory and allow the drive to mount.

When I start my computer a blue screen pops up then it crashes. It has text on it but I don't get a chance to read it.


download Microsoft Debugging tool here
just select the version of your computer (OS and if it is 32bit or 64)

install it.

then check this link on how to use the windows debugging tool
click here

-------------------

Every time that there is a blue screen error or a stop error, windows generates a dump file that has the details about the crash error. the dump file is located in this folder
C:\windows\minidump

you have to run the debugger, click on file, select ran deugger for crash error then after that browse to that folder and lod the minidump file.

in order for you to fully understand how to user the windows debugger, you have to read the link that i posted above.

the result of debugging will give you a detailed analysis on the problem, it could be driver issue, or the device or the OS itself

OK, first of all the blue screen appears only when windows is loaded so that means that you are still not rebooting from the cd, Turn on the computer and immediately press either the F1 key or the F2 key at one-second intervals to enter the BIOS setup utility. As the Guys at Gateway.com say it.
Then go to a screen called boot sequence which should allow you to choose from where the computer is going to restart from. make sure that the CD drive is first on this list then SAVE AND EXIT. after that, the windows vista cd should work.
make sure you press whatever key it wants you to press to enter to windows vista.

once you install intuit on your new pc or new harddrive open the program. insert the dvd disc. go to wherever you open files. select the drive with the dvd instead of the C drive. you should see the files. click on one and the program should open it. the program doesn't care if the files are on the C drive, D drive or U drive. it just needs a file with the right format and file extension.

Hard drive crash, not usable at all; downloaded xp drivers and computer drivers but cannot get them installed. Hard drive not recognized.


When you install a new harddrive, it has no Operating System on it.
Windows XP and Windows Vista, are examples of an Operating System.

Each laptop manufacturer, has their own system of changing a laptop harddrive. Some allow you to press a key or two, to put the laptop in a state where it will save the basic Operating System files, and when you install the new harddrive, it will transfer them over to it.

Some laptop manufacturers do have this option.

You either have to take the harddrive out, install it into an external enclosure for a harddrive, (Uses a USB cable) Then attach the external enclosure via the USB cable, to another computer, and use a 'mirror' imaging program to save the Operating System to that computer.

Then the new harddrive is installed in that external enclosure, and the Operating System is 'mirrored' over to it.

Just information for you, as you cannot do this now with a crashed harddrive.
Your option now, is to buy a genuine copy of the Operating System you had on the laptop, and install it.
Not what you wanted to hear, huh?

You need to buy whatever version of Windows XP it had, (WinXP Home or WinXP Pro), or Windows Vista.
If it was Windows Vista, I suggest getting at least the Windows Vista Home Premium version.

I personally prefer Xp over Vista.
Tigerdirect.com, and Newegg.com, have these.
Look for Software>Operating Systems.

OR, you can simply put Ubuntu Linux on it for free.

I can't repair bad sector in my harddrive?


You should immediately buy another hard drive. Reload the new one with your OS, programs, drivers. Cable Select them with the new one as master and old as slave. Transfer your data files to the new hard drive. Do this before it's too late and the drive crashes completely. It's only a matter of time.
