I've been getting these crashes a lot recently. Last night I ran the memtest and I recieved 8 errors in 10 minutes. I swapped the rams into a different slot and it seemed to solve the problem, but then a day later I got this crash again. Also, I have to press the restart button twice and on the third restart my computer finally boots up. So yeah, any help/solution appreciated.

SP1 isn't installed, please do the following:
Installing Windows 7 Service Pack 1
1. Visit the PC manufacturer's website and update ALL drivers. DO NOT use Windows Update or the "Update drivers" function of Device Manager.
2. Check Device Manager for any unknown/disabled devices - if there are unknown/disabled devices, fix them with the latest drivers from the device manufacturer's website (not the PC Manufacturer)
3. Visit Windows Update and get all updates (may take repeated visits)
4. Visit Windows Update and get Service Pack 1 (usually under Important Updates). Read these notes for installing SP1: Steps to follow before you install Windows 7 SP1 and Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 from the Microsoft Download Center
5. Visit Windows Update and get any other available updates. May take repeated visits, but keep it up until you get several "Windows is updated" results.
If you're having difficulties with installing a Service Pack, please use the SURTool from this link: What is the System Update Readiness Tool?
Also, check out this troubleshooting link from Microsoft: Troubleshoot problems installing Service Pack 1 (SP1) for Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2
I have had limited success in installing updates/Service Packs when using a "clean boot". I suspect that I'm just bypassing the problem - and that it can come back to bite me in the butt later on. MSINFO32 shows a PS2 keyboard as a problem because it's missing. If you're using a USB keyboard this error is safe to ignore.

Daemon Tools (and Alcohol % software) are known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems (mostly due to the sptd.sys driver, although I have seen dtsoftbus01.sys blamed on several occasions). I strongly suspect that this hold true for Win8 systems also.
Please un-install the program, then use the following free tool to ensure that the troublesome sptd.sys driver is removed from your system (pick the 32 or 64 bit system depending on your system's configuration): [DEL] DuplexSecure - FAQ [/DEL] Link broken as of 21 Jul 2012
New link (15 Aug 2012): DuplexSecure - Downloads (pick the appropriate version for your system and select "Un-install" when you run it).
Alternate link:
Manual procedure here: Registry and SPTD problems | DAEMON Pro Help Please uninstall HotSpotShield - it is known to cause BSOD's on some Windows systems.

AMD OverDrive (AODDriver2.sys) is either a stand-alone application, or a component of the AMD VISION Engine Control Center. This driver is known to cause BSOD's on some Win7 systems.
Please un-install all AMD/ATI video stuff from Control Panel...Programs...Un-install a program
Then, download (but DO NOT install) a fresh copy of the ATI drivers from Global Provider of Innovative Graphics, Processors and Media Solutions | AMD (in the upper right corner of the page)
Use this procedure to install the DRIVER ONLY: ATI video cards - DRIVER ONLY installation procedure
If the device (AODDriver or AODDriver4.01) remains a problem, open Device Manager, select the "View" item.
Then select "Show hidden devices" and scroll down to the Non-Plug and Play Drivers section.
Locate the AODDriver entry, right click on it and select "Un-install". Reboot for changes to take affect. Sometimes the driver remains and continues to cause BSOD's. If this is the case for you, post back and we'll give further instructions for safely removing it.
If overclocking, please stop. Remove the overclock and return the system to stock/standard values while we're troubleshooting. Once the system is stable again, feel free to resume the overclocking.

If using a wireless USB networking device:
I do not recommend using wireless USB network devices. Especially in Win7/Win8 systems.
These wireless USB devices have many issues with Win7(and I suspect with Win8) - using Vista drivers with them is almost sure to cause a BSOD.
Should you want to keep using these devices, be sure to have Win7/Win8 drivers - DO NOT use Vista drivers!!!
An installable wireless PCI/PCIe card that's plugged into your motherboard is much more robust, reliable, and powerful. Please update these older drivers. Links are included to assist in looking up the source of the drivers. If unable to find an update, please remove (un-install) the program responsible for that driver. DO NOT manually delete/rename the driver as it may make the system unbootable! :

Join Date Sep 2012 Posts 338 Blog Entries1 Re: BSOD - Dump file? If you want to view the BlueScreen, disable Automatic Restarts.
Go to Start Menu.
Right-click "Computer", and select "Properties".
On the left side of the page, select "Advanced System Settings".
In the third box labelled "Startup and Recovery", click "Settings".
Uncheck the box labelled "Automatically restart".
Click "OK".
Click "OK".
Wait for the BlueScreen to happen again. You can now see all the information.

(Sidenote: If you're unable to boot back into Windows and change the settings, boot in Safe Mode. Before the Windows Logo appears, press (repeatedly) F8. You'll be brought to a list of boot options. Select Safe Mode.)

If you want a BSOD analyst to view your dump files, use this tool: How to ask for help with a BSOD problem.
Zip up the folder and attach it to your original post.

(Another sidenote; If you want to view your minidumps by yourself, download Windows Debugger [windbg] from Microsoft. Then, to access the dumps, use the same tool (How to ask for help with a BSOD problem) but this time grab only the minidumps, and there's no need to zip the folder)
(Of course, you can always navigate through C: drive to find the minidumps, but hey, W7F tool is so much easier to use)

hi guys.
I have this gateway t-1616 that is working perfectly and has no problem.
but every now and then after windows vista loads (startup) I get
a blue screen with a tcp.sys error and windows is restarted and then
all work perfect for few days!

There is like a bluescreen then crash dump at the bottom that goes from 5% to 100% then the laptop restarts after that everything is alright for another few days then it happens again, kinda annoying

I was wondering if anyone else has this problem and if there is a solution to it?
here are details:
Problem signature:

hey to all

starting about 3 months ago, i have been getting random BSOD's on my Windows 7 PC, just while doing everyday things, like browsing the internet, or playing a game

this first happened when i was playing Guild Wars 2, and the game just suddenly crashed, and threw a blue screen at me, with the title "KERNEL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR" and a few lines of code.

i didnt think much of the instance at first, rebooted the machine, and tried to carry on, when the same thing happened but 5 minutes later, with the same error...Now a little bemused, i told the machine when it restarted again to run a checkdisk on reboot, to which it completed fine, with no errors or bad sectors.

after this, the PC seemed fine for about another month, and i thought the issue was fixed, until it happened again one morning, with again, the same error as before...At this point i thought it might be a problem with drivers or something being out of date, so i ran a memory diagnostic, which was clean, updated by motherboard bios, and the firmware of the HDD (thinking an inpage error may have been an issue on the HDD's front), and then later that night, i ran my HDD's diagnostic program, and left it overnight to run a full total scan

when i woke up the next morning and checked it, it was clean, all PASS, so i thought it may have not only fixed the issue, but proven my drive was not to blame....but i was wrong

not 10 minutes ago, yet another blue screen appeared, this time while i was listening to music, and then bluescreened again on bootup, before the desktop could even load.. The machine auto checkdisked, and again, came up fine, and rebooted into windows again, where i am now here, asking for help

attached are the logs you ask for, and i very much hope you guys can help me pinpoint what the issue is here, so i can do what is needed to resolve it

many thanks

also, one other thing i forgot to mention in my last post..

occasionally, when i boot up the PC, i find that it cannot find anything on the hard disk...all of my icons appear, but when i try and start any application, it claims it does not exist. If i proceed to refresh after this, all my icons disappear (except my recycle bin) and everything stops working, the pc responds, but it is useless until i restart, when it goes back to normal for a while

i haven't had a blue screen since my original post, but i would still love some help with resolving both of these issues ASAP, as i am constantly worried that one day, the PC will blue screen, and then that's it, something dies...

thanks again

Everything I did recently that might contribute to the problem-
I was hoping to make a dualboot comp by adding windows XP to a new partition. I created the new partition with 20gb. (From the 500 of my actual harddrive)
But before I actually installed on that, I got distracted with a second harddrive that my dad got(for no reason). It had a full copy of Windows XP backed up on it from another computer, so I figured I would just use that for the dualboot. I plugged it in (wired the same way as my old harddrive, but different data slot), restarted, checked the harddrive in explorer - all the data was there / reading correctly / etc, and I used 'easyBCD' to add the new harddrive to the boot list.(Which, of course, crashes if I try to start it. I just wanted to see what it would do). For a reason I can't remember, I unplugged the second harddrive for a bit, started the computer on accident (I don't know if anything loaded before I shut it off), and then when I plugged it back in.. Windows 7 would not launch. It goes to a DOS-like window, except it's just a flashing _ and it never does anything even after a few minutes. XP didn't work still.. so I decided to reinstall XP (as I couldn't tell which harddrive was which on the list, I unplugged the main harddrive while installing onto the new).. and when I did this.. it formatted and installed fully... then restarted.. then restarted.. and restarted.. and just kept restarting, never showing any thing past the manufacturer logo/BIOS load-button-message-thing. So, I then try to use my 3-disk Windows7Recovery disk(burned myself with a program apparently included by the manufacturer.) It installed fully, appearing to work.. but when I launched it, it said "Invalid Partition Table" and wouldn't boot past that. When I insert my driver installer disk, it gives me a basic DOS window thing. dir A: shows the files in the disk. dir B: for some reason shows the same. C: says "Error reading from drive C: DOS area: general failure". All other letter:'s just say "invalid drive". (I'm doing this with both harddrives in.) I attempted connecting the harddrives to an old computer, but it gave an error for both. (It detected the harddrives, but said it had an error reading from it. Windows Explorer asked me to format it... {i'm willing to format one of the drives if anybody thinks it will help, but the old harddrive has data I'd prefer not to lose.} ) Looking on google, I saw several problems that all have similar problems (less overdescripptive than I am though) but none of the fixes suggested worked for me. Also - as I have two different with different errors, I only need to make one of them work.)
Also - my other available computer has a CD burner / floppy drive if either are required. I also have several USB's. The computer can boot from USB's and CD's (tested), and I could easily take the floppy thingy and connect it to the computer.
also - this computer is probably still under warranty unless unscrewing the hard drive voids it. .. does that count as modification of the computer?

Lastly - thank you for not refusing to help when you saw my wall of text. I have no idea what the problem is so I felt the need to list every single stupid thing done to the computer.

Hey guys,

So i was dumb and must have messed something up when i was installing ubuntu 12.10 because after the installation was complete and i tried to boot up windows it just showed a screen that said "A drisk read error occured, press Cntrl Alt Del to restart."

After some research i think i may have destroyed the MBR for windows but nothing seems to fix it.

I inserted a windows 7 Ultimate disc and pressed "repair my computer" and under the screen where it lists which installation of windows you need to repair it doesn't list any and then gives an option to load drivers.

Secondly when i just try to do an entire install and i hit Custom (instead of upgrade) it does not list any hard drives for me to install it onto.

Luckily I have not lost any data because it was all backed up and I can even access my files through ubuntu because when i boot ubuntu up (which works fine, btw), it lists a hard drive in /media which is called OS_Install and when I access it it turns out to be the entirety of the data on my windows installation.

My computer is a MSI GT683-R and it has two 500 GB hard drives in raid 0 to make a 1 TB hard drive. I read somewhere about needing a raid driver for the windows installation to see my hard drives. What can i do in order to repair or reinstall windows?

How do i get it to recognize my hard drives so i can repair/re-install?

Thanks for the advice! I am new to these forums but i sure hope you guys can help!

Im getting BSOD some time after power up, dont know what to do

These crashes you've had are so bad that I can't even see more than about 15% of your installed drivers.

This thread should be followed as it is one of the best resources to be found about 0x124 stops:

Stop 0x124 - what it means and what to try - Windows 7 Forums

Good luck and please post new crashes as they become available.

You might also try scanning the system with Malwarebytes and letting it remove anything it finds. Spwl.sys might be malware.

Also recommend to uninstall whichever current antivirus you have (in safe mode) as the least stuff installed is going to be helpful to you here until the issue is resolved:

AV Uninstallers - Windows 7 Forums

If you have Daemon Tools installed, uninstall it in the normal method. Then use the installer/uninstaller found here to remove sptd.sys:

at about 9:30am โ€ฆ so that umax.ini file should have been wipedโ€ฆ I donโ€™t get

I am reformatting againโ€ฆ and thinking .. maybe donโ€™t install all the

I really want my system to run at the best optimum capability it has. I
would think installing the drivers and utilities would do that. ARGHHH!!

After you install Windows XP Service Pack 2, your computer restarts

Over-heating, and a bad stick of RAM have been known to cause this--so if
software remedies don't do it, look to hardware, memory sticks in place,
cables, ect.

*Often, booting to the Recovery Console and running chkdsk /r will help this
problem.* I don't know if you have an XP CD, because lately so many people
with boot problems have not had one supplied by their OEM, but if you do
this would be my first choice to try to ditch the endless loop this way.

Using the Recovery Console

RC Overview

Recovery Console in XP

I didn't know if you could break the loop to F8 as Will says. In my
experience, Last Known Good Configuration almost never works statistically,
but if it does and this is gone, more power to you. Keep in mind that it's
a snapshot of your configuration immediately after you booted, so if you
have been booted up for a long time then you're not going to track settings
changes since that time.

I'd first try to F8 to the Windows Advanced Options menu and use Safe Mode
and then try System Restore from Safe Mode. You will probably be back at
the version before you installed SP2. There is also this option for aborted
SP2 installs or SP2 installs with the problem like the one you're having,
but again System Restore may not solve your endless loop problem and Last
Known Good may not. You may need to run a chkdsk /r or use some of the
other tools I describe.

Advanced Options Menu)

How to use the Automatic Recovery feature to recover your computer if the
Windows XP Service Pack 2 Setup program is not completed successfully

A description of the Safe Mode Boot options in Windows XP

If you were unable to use the Recovery Console because you had no XP CD, and
haven't installed it already but could get back to Windows:

If you can tap F8 to get back to Windows via either Safe Mode or as a last
resort in my opinion, Last Known Good Configuration, then you're still faced
with the possible "endless loop problem." That's why my first suggestion
was to boot to the Recovery Console and run chkdsk /r from the recovery

You would be possibly faced with the endless loop proble again or when you
installed SP2 so I would run chkdsk /r from the command prompt or the run

The reason for the endless loop is often that something has set the volume's
"dirty bit." When a volume's dirty bit is set, autochk automatically checks
the volume for errors the next time the computer is restarted.If a volume's
dirty bit is set, this indicates that the file system may be in an
inconsistent state. The dirty bit can be set because the volume is online
and has outstanding changes, because changes were made to the volume and the
computer shutdown before the changes were committed to disk, or because
corruption was detected on the volume. If the dirty bit is set when the
computer restarts, chkdsk runs to verify the consistency of the volume.

See if you have any disk corrpution by typing "fsutil dirty query [C]: Sub
any drive you want for "C". If it says the volume isn't dirty, you don't
need to run chkdsk because there aren't any errors on the disk. But I know
you want to run it to see that it runs properly without this read-only
error. The KB I'm going to list advises you to run "chkdsk volume_label: /v
/f" to fix this. This will fix any errors on the disk and the "v" causes it
to name each fixed file. Hopefully that will resolve it.
But if it doesn't then run "chkdsk_volume label: /r", and if that doesn't
then run the chkdsk /r from the recovery console.

If the disk is dirty, then System Restore is not going to fix that.

Every time Windows XP starts, Autochk.exe is called by the Kernel to scan
all volumes to check if the volume dirty bit is set. If the dirty bit is
set, autochk performs an immediate chkdsk /f on that volume. Chkdsk /f
verifies file system integrity and attempts to fix any problems with the

Here's what to do:

Go to Start/Run/CMD and type in: fsutil dirty query c: (or whatever drive
his XP is on). You'll get back either the drive "is dirty" or "it's not

Windows Help and Support--type "helpctr" into your run box:

An Fsutil Query Does Not Work Properly on FAT or FAT32 Volumes

You have 4 choices that may work:

1) You can run chkdsk /r from the Recovery Console. I think this is the
fastest and most effective. I've seen it work for this several times.

2) You can run the chkntfs /d and reboot and chkdsk won't run on the next
boot. What this does is to restore default settings. Note this is a
different command than chkdsk. Chkntfs is a command that displays or
specifies whether automatic checking is schduled to run on a FAT, FAT32, or
NTFS volume when the computer is started.

3) You should be able to fix this by using "chkntfs/X C" if C were the
problem drive or whatever letter--this works when the drive is dirty and I
showed you above how to verify this. The advantage of sticking the X in the
command is that it saves time by causing the command to skip checking cycles
within the folder.

4) You can go to Kelly's XP Tweaks and click line 76 left column and see if
this VB script will stop it.

Troubleshooting Windows XP

In addition, When there is improper shutdown, the Autochk program runs on
all NTFS drives in XP, 2K, NT where a disk write was in process at the time
of shutdown. This gets exacerbated if you have write caching enabled on a
hard drive connected to a standard IDE controller. It improves performance,
by delaying data writing while other work is done, but it ups the risk of
lost data or corruption.

Open the run box with the Windows Key + "r" and type in diskmgmt.msc. From
the graphical display in the bottom of the Disk Management window,
right-click the disc icon and chooose Properties. On the policies tab, clear
Enable Write Caching on the Disk. (Note this option, ie. the policies tab,
may not be available if your disk is connected to a High Performance ATA-66
or ATA-100 IDE controller.)

After you find the cause of the underlying problem if there is improper
shutdown, re-enable write caching.

1st let me explain this case of mine.
I've just started trying windows xp from windows me.
I was surfing and I'm downloading some stuff from the
internet. When all of a sudden I couldn't load a web
server anymore. But my download is running fine and it's
not only 1 program i'm downloading, but when I try to
surf or go for online RPG gaming,it won't allow me. But
the downloads are still running fine, I thought I'm being
DoS by some ppl, so I try disconnect the downloads and
seeing if I'm either sending any data to the internet,
well it stop, the receiving and sending activity bar
actually stop. Well, not really stop it's still sending
abit to my isp I guess. I know when I got DoS I should be
sending a lot of data but the problem is, when I try to
resume my download/start going for online gaming/surfing
the internet, it won't allow me to connect again. Oh My
God. Ok then I restart my comp, and I'm connected to the
internet again. Has it gotta do with microsoft optimizing
our bandwidth for home user? Why do I feel that
microsoft's protocol is behind this? Because there is no
strange program inside my comp and I've just installed
this OS.

If there is anyone that can help me with this, I'd be

Please don't give me a reply
1. that has somefin to do with my isp(cuz when I reboot,
itz finally connected again)
2. there is somefin to do with my cable modem(no, because
when I use winME, no problem with that 24hours 7days
3. there is somefin to do with my firewall(I never use
firewall, cuz troublesome to config the port of my icq
and gameguard for ragnarok and msn and some download)
4. there is virus in my comp(no, cuz I always use the
latest and updated norton anti virus)

I almost give myself up with this XP of microsoft

Well, you see, I have to reboot my comp whenever I can't
send anymore data, yet I still can receive data from the
internet. It's like it happen in about 5-15 minutes. And
1 more thing, I have 1 computer connected through my hub
when my server can't access the internet but i was
downloading a file and itz still running, the same thing
happens to my other comp as well, It won't surf/connect
to internet but the file that my other comp is
downloading, is working fine, never stops too same as my

I have a large Excel file that contains many graphical elements (barcharts, buttons, text boxes etc).
When another User opened the file, they couldn't see the bar charts or the buttons.
We are both using Windows XP and Excel 2003.

The only difference between us seem to be desktop screen resolution.
(their laptop at 1024x768; me at 1280x1024)

So I added a few lines of code to detect and set the zoom level for a couple of worksheets within the file.
I saved the file, restarted and loaded the file - everythink OK.
I then adjusted my desktop to 1024x768, loaded Excel and then the file and Excel immediately crashed.
I quit everything without saving the (pathetic) 'recovered' file.
I switched back to 1280x1024, loaded Excel, then the same file (that had just 'crashed') and everything worked and displayed as expected.

So my question is - has anyone else come across such anomolous behaviour?
I can't think of anything within Excel itself that could explain this.
Is there anything within an Excel file that is somehow linked to desktop display resolution???


After installing Vista Ultimate and going through the slow and painful process of installing the 45 to 50 "important and recommended" Hotfix Updates, dutifully rebooting when asked, It finally said that SP 1 was ready to be installed.
The file itself is huge and takes a long time to install and configure. ( assuming all goes well ) Obviously, something was fighting with the update. I hadn't seen so many BSOD's since Windows 95 days! All types and errors! Couldn't figure out what was doing it.
So, I finally gave up and contacted a MS tech rep. He suggested the following procedure and it worked like a champ! Now all updated OK.

Step 1: Download Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Standalone Installer

================================================== =

1. Download Windows Vista SP1 from the link below according to your System Type:

Windows Vista Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista 32-bit (Size: 434.5MB)


Windows Vista Service Pack 1 for Windows Vista 64-bit (Size: 726.5MB)


2. Save it on the Desktop.

Step 2: Install Windows Vista SP1 in Clean Boot mode


Disable all startup items and third party services when booting to avoid conflict when installing Vista SP1:

1. Click "Start", type: MSCONFIG in the search box and press Enter.

Note: Please click "Continue" if the "User Account Control" window pops up.

2. Click "Services", check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).

3. Click "Startup", click "Disable All" and click "OK".

Note: Temporarily disabling the Startup Group only prevents the startup programs from loading at startup. This shouldn't affect the system or other programs. We can manually run these programs later.

4. Please double click the downloaded Windows Vista Service Pack 1 Standalone Installer and follow the instructions to install Windows Vista SP1.

To restore the computer to use a Normal Startup, repeat step 1 above. Then click "Normal Startup" on the General tab, click "OK", and then restart the computer.

Hope this can save some other frustrated lounger from some grief!

Hello everyone. I have a problem with my computer and it has been in and out of a repair shop for various things and costing me a fortune for stupid little things that I should be able to fix myself but I am completely computer illiterate. I am hoping you can all teach me a thing or two.
I took my machine to repair shop because my mouse was not working and had apparently needed drivers or some such thing which you get from loading Windows 98 CD. However, this repair shop on the previous visit loaded Windows 98 SE onto my machine which I don't have, I only have Windows 98, so in effect I have to take it to him get him to load SE and pay him $70.
Anyway, my problem is when I got it back this time, I opened excel to look at a few workbooks which were password protected and there was no problem, but I decided to delete them. For the life of me I can't remember how I did delete them though as I may have done it incorrectly because the next day when I tried to open them excel word would not open. It gave no message it just did nothing. I searched around the net for 2 days to see if I could find something to help me but nothing.
I then decided to uninstall and reinstall Office 2000 and have done so many times since and these are the 6 messages I receive after installing and restarting.

ERROR 1911
Could not register type library for file:

I repeatedly got these same 6 messages, except for this morning when I did another uninstall and reinstall, the last message did not appear, but all of the others did.

I know this may seem like a bit much, but can anyone help me solve this? Remember I am completely ignorant when it comes to computers and will need very very basic step by step instructions, but I can follow instructions to the letter.
Any help much appreciated.

I just had my hard drive redone by our Help desk. In the process they upgraded me to Internet Explorer 6.0. The combination of 6.0 and XP causes me to be unable to reply to .html messages without Outlook crashing. (This is just plain Outlook, I'm not using Word as my editor.)

After much research we found a solution (Microsoft has not as yet). Search isn't working at WOPR now so I couldn't see if this had already been reported. I manually checked back 2 months and didn't find anything,

The solution, found in many places via Google! is to downgrade the MSHTML.DLL back to the previous version, specifically version 6.0.2800.1126. Once in place all problems disappear.

One thing that was not apparent from the internet was how to implement this as the .dll in question is always in use if Windows is running.

I understand there are other ways but left to my own devices, I rebooted to a DOS prompt with the following steps:

Shut down and select the Restart option
press F8 key as windows starts to start in Safe Mode
scroll to the "start from a DOS prompt" option
Type "CD Windowssystem32", no quotes on any typed info.
Type "rename mshtml.dll mshtml.old"
Type "copy c:mshtml.dll" (Note: I had loaded the correct version of the file onto my C: drive for convenience)
Type "CD Windowssystem32dllcache"
Type "rename mshtml.dll mshtml.old"
Type "copy c:mshtml.dll"

I then hit Ctrl+Alt+Delete to reboot and everything now works fine.

Hope this helps.


I recently replaced a faulty MB (Gygabyte Pentium 4 Titan Series GA-8IK110, 478 socket, Intel 875P Chipset) with another of the same model BUT "rev 1.0". A few sockets are in a different place but it looks very much like the old one.

On reinstaling Windows XP it began loading files from the CD, all OK... then it restarted. After all the memory tests and IDE listings the screen went black with the Windows logo on it and those dots running left to right... All looked right until it stalled. The logo was there but the dots stopped runnig. The HD led remained on.

After some other -negative- attempts (I even changed HDs) I changed the approach and tried installing Ubuntu 10. It all went perfectly, and the same with Windows 7. Both installed and run smoothly.
Unfortunately I must go back to XP on that computer so upgrading to Win7 is no solution. Could there be some jumper or something in the new MB that I shoud change? I never touched any hardware configuration on the old MB.


My pc suddenly started trying to boot then after about 15 seconds into the load it shut down & restarted then continued to loop endlessly. I switched off and tried again without success. No problem I thought as I shall just press the spacebar and use Norton Goback. Big mistake. After trying to Goback to an earlier date the pc still looped. I then tried to go into safe mode but Norton Goback had a mind of its own. Managed to get the pc up and running and disabled the Goback. Then tried to use my Acronis to restore my saved good settings but AH!! the files were corrupt and would not load, even though I always check after backup that they are okay. Probably because i was using the Goback although I do not know caused the problems. I then tried to uninstall the Norton Goback but it would only part uninstall and I am at a loss what to do now. I have not switched my pc off for the last week in case I am unable to get it up and running again. It is stable with the Norton Goback disabled but I would like it off the machine altogether. Even with it disabled it sometimes kicks in when I right click on unrelated programs. It is very difficult to even get the pc to boot into safe mode when it goes into a loop with Norton Goback in control, that is the reason I have not shut or restarted the pc. I am contemplating formating the drive while I have it running but this is my last resort. Any help really appreciated.

Observed symptom/'behaviors: when I turn on my computer 1) I get the initial HP screen (normal) 2) blank black screen (normal) 3) the windows xp screen w/ the lillte sweep bar (normal). THe initial windows screen does the little sweep bar for 10-14 seconds - 4) then the computer shuts down, restarts (not normal) The computer then loops through behaviors 1-4 for as long as I care to sit there.

What I have tried so far: following the instructions from MS 'window xp : how to fix a computer that won't start" I have ( this order)

1) press f8, select ' last known good configuration ..." I get the same behavior as above.
2) I'd recently (2 weeks ago) installed a sony camcorder - hardware (firewire & usb) & installed software (more about software below) - I removed the cables for the camcorder's base station - (not the ports on the computer) - tried to start computer and got the same behavior as above.
3) press f8, select 'safe mode' - safe mode lists a page of file names all part of win32 then - got the same behavior as above.

Recent changes & observations -
As noted above I installed a sony 'handycam' camcorder - the computer recognized the hardware. I installed one cd of software which seemed to load ok, later I occasionally gor error messages on start up or shutdown saying the software had a missing file - bad install - reinstall - well I never got around to that. Also there was a second cd of software - did not get this to load at all. However, other than these error messages the computer seemd to be working OK.

Interesting stuff from 'taskmanager'
1)svchost.exe - eating 20 -50% of CPU - I'd read some about that this is form a recent MS update.
2)spysweeper - eating 10-50% of CPU - I created a problem ticket with those guys - I haven't seen a resonse from them. However, If I close down spysweeper - it no longer eats cpu.
3)I have a maxtor onetouch backup drive - if you have a scheduled backup that is supposed to occur & the maxtor harddrive is turned off at that time - one of the maxtor programs eats a bunch of cpu.

Other info -
I use pc-cillin for viruses - realtime virus protection is enabled, last sweep for viruses was a little over a week ago. - no problems indicated.

The last things I did before the startup loop happened was:
Loaded pictures from a digital camera, organized them - ran disc cleanup and defrag. Unfortunately, I deleted the 145 picutres from a family vacation from the camera card & had not yet copied them to my maxtor drive.

So I am wondering :
1) Any suspected caused/ proposed solution that I can implement?
2) does this sound like a virus/malware & do I need to take it in for cleanup?
I am not slamming here - (& i'm not sure of the board etiquette here) just an observation and question - last year my daughters computer got a virus - we took the computer to geek squad - while they did clean up the virus, other aspects of their service was not all that I hoped for. So, any opinion about 'data doctors' ?

Any help is most welcome - shiryo

We have Vista Home Premium on a Toshiba laptop. I ran Update, which said Vista had never been updated. This was a bit of a warning, since I have installed updates every few weeks. Windows said I had a lot of updates to install. I tried to proceed, but the computer repeatedly hung up without downloading all of them. I wish I had seen the recent post that recommended installing a few at a time, but I was concerned that I might install them out of order and cause a problem. Over the course of several tries, in which I stopped the download several times when it said it was hung up at 99%, Windows did finally install all but 8 of the updates. I shut down and restarted, returned to Windows Update, and it said I had never updated and offered to start all over. I shutdown and restarted again, and it said I had 8 updates to do, which I tried to do but it hung up.

The system is very unstable now. I can get Vista to load in regular mode or safe mode, but if I try more than a couple of mouse clicks (to try to get to a recovery point, for example) it locks up with the little circle running beside the cursor but nothing happening on the CPU meter or the hard disk light.

Now we seem to have more problems. On some of the restarts Windows ran the disk check, which usually deleted some quotation marks from files, then in step 3, checking indexes, it would quit suddenly at about index entry 170,000 of 190,000. It quits at the same point on each restart. I tried running chkdsk from the command line, but that doesn't run. Windows Update will not run because it says the disk has errors, then disk check will run again at startup and quit again. I have started in Safe mode and have started from the system disk. I can't return to a recovery point because it has to do the disk check first, and the disk check will not compelte.

So, my question is, is there anything I can do before reinstalling Vista?

Thank you very much for your assistance.

Hello, again, Colleagues All,

My current PC runs Office 2010 and Access 2010 under Windows 7. My laptop runs Office 2003, Access 2003 under Windows XP.

I have copied some databases from my laptop to my PC, with the intention of upgrading them to the latest and greatest. However, whenever I try to open a database (in the expectation it will ask me if I want to upgrade it), the only responses I get are (i) a VBA box with the message "VBE6EXT.OLB cannot be loaded" or (ii) a similar box with the message "Your network access was interrupted. To continue, close the database and then open it again.". I have Googled the file name, but have received a lot of conflicting advice (probably because the error happens under all sorts of conditions). I also created a new database, but when I click on the VBA tab in the ribbon, there is no response at all.

I am getting a bit stressed over this one, as a client, for whom I developed a database about five years ago, and who, on the advice of a manager, replaced it with a commercial system, rang me up out of the blue and said he was ditching that one and wanted to restart development of the old system.

Any advice gratefully received.


A friend has a Dell 4400 system with Norton Antivirus. She is getting a notice that Norton has detected "trojan.Vundo.B" and the following file is affected - C:Windowssystem32vturg.dll. The notice from Norton (which comes up when she restarts the computer) states that the file can not be repaired. She clicks on OK and the same notice just repeats and repeats. I did a search and found a Removal Tool from Symantec. But the removal tool instructions state that the computer has to be in safe mode before running the removal tool. When I try to go into safe mode, it gets to the point where the notice comes up saying that "windows is running in safe mode and to proceed to work in safe mode, click on YES". This notice only stays open for a few seconds and then the screen just halts with the safe mode text in all of the corners but the computer never fully loads in safe mode.

I was able to click on the YES button and the desktop icons briefly appeared but then went away and all that is visible is the black screen with "safe mode" in all four corners.

What can I do to get into SAFE MODE or is there another method to remove the trojan.

As I type this, I am running CHKDSK to see if that will help.
