A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent
damage to your computer

I also get this messege when I try other options:

Problem signature:

I have Windows 7 Home, 64bit, 4 G of RAM, GTX 285, Intel Core 2 Quad

I had recently installed trial version of Kapersky . I had an earlier message after trying to restart and a black screen with the message bad image sector or something like that. It started several times before. Now it will not start and I had to disable the automatic startup and I got the above messege. I cannot do the system restore because it just won't and I hear Kapersky sometimes prevents this. No detecable disk errors have been noted but it still will not even boot into safe mode. This process just keeps repeating and nothing seems to be helping. I had this message before when my screen flickered before but the computer kept running. It has restarted automatically before also but with no problems. My system will also, not restore to another check point. I am ready to reinstall windows.




Every time I shut my computer down or restart it , a blue screen shows up and it says :
" A problem has been detected and Windows has been shutdown to prevent damage to your computer " and than it restarts my computer which takes longer than usual when I put the computer log - in password .

I have a Windows 7 Enterprise , 32-bit .
I have this computer for almost year and a half and it happened about 2-3 times during this time but now it happens every single time I shut my computer down or restart it .
I updated the computer three days ago but it keeps happening since then .

Please help me ! I'm really nervous . ):




Hi, I upgraded my computer from Windows 32bit to Windows 64 bit. I also installed 8GB additional RAM (a total of 12GB). Since then if the computer is idle for a bit then I get a BSOD with the following errors,

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage
to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: ntoskrnl.exe

IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen,
restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow
these steps:

Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer
for any Windows updates you might need.

If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware
or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart
your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode.

I've paid for XP previously -> i have the disk), and have the release candidate downloaded, which i'm trying to install from a virtual disk application since i don't have a dvd drive.

the virtual disk application isn't the problem in trying to get rid of the Win7 Beta nonsense (that's how I installed it), this OS just started freezing up after the download & support was discontinued a few weeks ago. So i tried to get back to XP, but it won't allow it of course. Other operating systems are easier to get around than this.

I keep getting the BSOD "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer".

Stop: 0x0000007b (0xFFFFFADFD6C323C0, 0XFFFFFFFF,C0000034)

I don't have any viruses so let's no go there, and i've run the chkdsk thing to no avail.

How do I get rid of this retardedness & get back to XP or the x64 release candidate?




I'm just about ready to throw this laptop at the wall with the amount of problems I've had with it and I'm also starting to feel like a bit of a burden to this forum but what ever my problem may be this place seems to provide the best answers which is why I come here!

heres my old thread that was solved:
A problem has been detected and Windows has shut down.

so basically after I fixed that I created a back up image just incase this laptop went skitz on me again.

But it seemed to work fine since I sorted those problems out until 3 days ago when suddenly my laptop started going really slow so I shut it down and left it for the night but when I switched it on the next day it was telling me I had to do a system repair to which I agreed but it wouldnt fix the problem and just kept restarting and starting he repair again, until I was able to somehow start it up in safe mode and use that Image restore to take my laptop back to when I had sorted the previous problems and although I can log on now booting up my laptop takes forever and to load anything freezes my laptop momentarily, just to open google chrome and get to posting this took me 20 minutes, its painfully slow and it will tell me websites are being unresponsive and will have to close, its the same for any program I open it will take forever to load up and freeze constantly. does anyone have any advice on what I could do? I've got and had Mcafee on here but I dont think its a virus problem anyway. It wont even let me update windows when I restart it says reverting changes.

I'll try and get a video/pictures of what I mean but if anyone has any help or tips for now that would be fantastic.

Thanks in advanced.




I'm getting this bsod:

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

I've tried system repair and restored the system to the 1 of April. Still I get the same bsod everytime I try to start the PC. Also tried safe mode, but it still won't go further than the bsod before it restarts. Since this is the case I can't run CHKDSK/F as is suggested. Any ideas on what to do?




I've just had a new laptop sent to me by Alienware and the first thing I did was undate it from Vista to Windows 7 and now since whenever im browsing the internet and I generally find its when I'm using Google Chrome on a specific social networking website my Laptop will display this warning and restart. (I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome and the website might just be coincidence because I'm on it often)
I've had so much trouble with Alienware in the past so havent contacted them about it since last time the had to fix my laptop they had it for 4 months and I cant afford to be without it (even if its not working) when I'm in the middle of my university degree, but if its the only option I'll have to.

thanks in advanced for any help




my friend's laptop did not successfully boot and it just keep on restarting after the loading screen appears.
The safe mode didn't work either. As well as the installation disk, it get stucked when I press "Repair my computer".
And also, when I press F8 and disable "Automatic restart ...... " I faced this error.

BSOD:

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen. restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.

If problem continue, disable or remove any newly install =ed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory option such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advance Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.

That actually show up on the screen when I disable Automatic restart.. I don't know what's the cause of this problem, my friend cannot remember the last time he used his laptop.

Safe mode and all the options in F8 didn't work either. The installation disk get stucked at Starting set up ( 'cause I want to install new OS on other partition so that I can back up the files hopefully. But suddenly failed. )
I already check the memory using memtes86, no error found, pass only once cause it takes too long. Anyone know this???? Please help.




Hello,

I installed Windows 8 on a friends laptop and now he wants to go back to Windows 7. I already downloaded an ISO file from a site called Dreamsparks which allows students at my school to get software for a huge discount or free.

I then went ahead and used Windows7 USB download tool to get the ISO onto my USB.
When I tried to boot up the laptop from the USB I got a blue screen with this error:

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

....

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory options such as cashing or shadowing. If you need to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 and Select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode.

"

Anyone know what might be wrong?




I started to build a new computer,

Fractal Design Arc Midi ATX case
MSI 990FXA-GD80 motherboard
AMD FX-6100, AM3+, 3,3GHz, 6-core processor
Noctua processor cooler NH-D14
OCZ 120GB Agility 3 Series SSD
Seagate 1TB Barracuda 7200.12, SATA III HDD
Kingston Hyper X Genesis 2x4GB, DDR3 1600MHz, CL9 memories
ASUS ENGTX560 Ti DCII TOP video card
Nexus 1000W RX-1K 80Plus Bronze PSU

and I run into some issues. I came to know that the memories aren't really compliant, but I couldn't get it all running with my older OCZ memories either, the ones who had function properly with my 770-C45, and Sempron 140.

What I got, in installation:

1. Blue screen, it went off too fast for me to get it
2. Freeze at "Setup is updating settings"
3. Blue screen: "A clock interrupt was not received on a secondary processor within the allocated time interval"
4. "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the computer, and then restart the installation.

Next time: "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer".

What the heck? I've built four PCs, no problems, and I upgraded my previous one from XP to 7. And no problems.

I'd be very happy with some advice.




I have tried startup repair and it doesn't work
i tried to do system restore and an error thing pops up telling to me close my antivirus and try system restore again

I can't go in to safe mode and when i try it loads through the sys files but stops and the last loaded sys file was classpnp.sys

i know it was some sort of virus because for i had shut it down i was hearing music just starting up randomly, sounded like music from commercials. one time it was indian music.

is there any way i can fix this?/

PS I found my windows 7 cd if that helps??

ok i found something that cleared the problem but now everything has changed
i disabled the auto restart and it is a blue screen that says

a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
etc
etc
check for viruses on your computer (i have no idea how if i can't boot safe mode) remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers etc etc

I built my first computer, and I have Windows 98 installed
on it, and I am trying to upgrade to XP. I get far enough
into the installation where you have to restart your
computer for the first time. When I do it gets to the
Windows XP loading screen for a second, but then swiches
to this blue screen of death. It says:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down

Well thats what it says. Its running Windows 98 fine, so
does anyone have any ideas?




I wished to move to a new computer equipped with a SATA (serial ATA) hard disk and and G-Force FX-5200 graphic card. I decided to make a fresh install using my Windows XP original disk acquired in 2002 (no service Pack 1). However, I was unsucessful 4 ti
mes, encoutering a stop in the Windows setup with the following message: "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Check for viruses. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drives controllers
... STOP. Technical details 0X0000007B (0XF7CB663C, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000).

Is the "old" Windows XP (without service pack 1) incompatible with SATA disks (or the graphic card G-Force FX-5200) ?




After struggling with a WIN XP reinstalll w/sp2, things
were starting to work out. THEN, I woke up this morning
to a Windows update message. I installed the update and
now my PC keeps shutting down "A problem has been detected
and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your
computer..." Tried starting up in Safe mode, but the same
thing keeps hapenning. God, Id hate to have to reinstall
Windows again!!! Help!!




I have a laptop that someone asked me to repair. Having been offered money, who was I to refuse? After all, it's an XP machine. Easy enough.
But come to find out it's XP Home Edition - a wrinkle. Still, shouldn't be too tough. Just get rid of viruses/malware. Right?
Well, the machine wouldn't boot into windows - it froze after telling me that McAfee wouldn't load (several times). So I mounted the drive in an external box and connected it to my PC via USB - and scanned it with Avast!
Avast! found at least 112 virus-infected files, and my best option was to put them in "the chest". I didn't want to delete possibly critical files outright.
When Avast was done, I moved the drive back into the laptop and upon bootup, I got a bluescreen which included advice to check for viruses. OK, I figured - maybe using 'the chest" didn't resolve anything, since as far as I knew the original files would still be in place, and upon removing the drive from its connection, the link between files and chest would be severed.
So I scanned the entire drive directly from My computer (again via USB) - this time the recommended action was to remove the infected files, so I did - I figured that way they wouldn't be coming back. But when I put the drive back in the laptop, I got the same message.

A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

I'm guessing, at this point, that one or more of the infected files were in the boot sector, so what I need to do is to rebuild the boot sector. But the only CDs I have are for XP Pro. I need an emergency boot disk for XP Home. Can I use files from my XP Pro CD to create a boot CD for XP Home, or am I out of luck in that regard?




I'm working on a used Gateway M-Series laptop, model number: W650I. The laptop runs fine, but whenever I try to boot into Windows with the hard drive that came with it, I get a BSOD! It essentially reads:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /f to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer. Technical info: STOP: 0x0000007B, 0xFFFFF880009A9928, 0xFFFFFFFFC00000034

Thinking that it could be an issue with the drive, I took it out and put it a drive from a Linux machine, and the Gateway booted up normally. I also took the Gateway drive and put it in the Linux box, and the computer gave me an endless reboot cycle of "Windows is loading files." So the Linux drive works in the Gateway and in its own computer, but the Gateway drive works in neither. Simple, right? Just fix the drive; problem solved. Not so fast.

Now I know for a fact that the prior owner of the Gateway infected the machine with all kinds of malware, and a lot of it was never removed. Since Windows was compromised with so many viruses and other nasties, I simply decided to start with a clean slate. So I formatted and reinstalled Windows 7 on the drive. Knowing that formatting doesn't remove all malware, I also hooked the drive up to other computers and ran:

1.) An Microsoft Security Essentials scan. Results were clean.
2.) An AVG Internet Security version 9 scan, twice, and results were clean.
3.) Kaspersky Virus Removal Tool, which took over two hours. Results were clean.

I ran CHKDSK twice on the drive, once from another installation of Windows, and it did report that it had repaired some bad sectors. I used EASUS Partition Manager to run a surface test on the drive, and it came back with a couple of bad sectors. So it would appear that the drive may have been damaged by too many incorrect shutdowns or malware, and wouldn't work at all.

Not true. Normally I would have thought that the drive was toast, since it didn't boot up into either computer. However, I hooked it up to my own custom built computer. . . and it worked! Windows booted normally, installed updates normally, ran its programs correctly, all without error messages. So why isn't it working in the Gateway laptop?

I thought it might have something to do with the Gateway's RAM. So I ran Windows Memory Diagnostic twice, and it did not report any errors. The BIOS recognized all the RAM on its summary page, and emitted no error beep when the system started. The Linux drive also booted up with no problem. Just to be sure, I checked the RAM, each stick in a different module, while booting up from the Gateway hard drive, but still encountered the BSOD. The RAM looks fine, and the contacts were not dirty or damaged. I reseated the memory, just to be sure nothing was loose, but to no avail. Therefore I think the RAM is exonerated as a possible culprit.

Windows also would not respond to any of the F8 commands. If I told it to boot into Safe Mode or Last Known Good Config, it would still bluescreen. I ran startup repair on the drive after one such failed attempt, and I did get an error message explaining why Startup Repair couldn't fix the drive, but I don't remember what it was.

Since the Gateway drive is from Western Digital, I downloaded and ran the WD Data Lifeguard Diagnostic program. The drive passed the SMART test and the WD quick test without issue. I was going to run the extended test, but after I saw the estimated time sitting at 19 hours after running it for 120+ minutes, I decided to stop the test. For what it's worth, it didn't report any errors during the first two and a half hours I was running it.

I'm wondering if the BIOS on the Gateway is infected somehow. Sure, I can access it without issue, but maybe it has some sort of malware in it that could be interacting with the Windows 7 bootup sequence, which is causing the BSOD. Remember, the Linux drive booted fine on it, because Linux wouldn't get infected with a Windows BIOS virus. I could try resetting the motherboard, or flashing the BIOS, but since I can't actually boot into Windows, I'm not sure how I'd do that.

The one thing I don't understand is that the hard drive works in my computer, but bluescreens in the Gateway. I've checked to ensure that the drive is properly attached and secured in the laptop before I boot the computer. In fact, Windows gets as far as the startup splash graphic before the BSOD hits, so I don't think it is a bad or faulty connection with the laptop's SATA port.

Maybe there is some malware in the drive that is eluding my AV scans? Is there a really thorough virus checker that will scour deep down into the sectors, where a rootkit or something could be hiding? And can anyone recommend any effective third party disk checkup and repair utilities? Maybe the built in Windows features aren't telling me the whole story.

I've exhausted all of my tricks, so anyone else here is welcome to try their magic and find a solution to this Gateway dilemma!




I keep a relatively small C: for easy backup, but over the years it has filled up little by little. I tried to run Turbo Tax and it said there was insufficient space on the drive. I keep all programs on D and data on E: But Turbo Tax doesn't give any options, it has to use C:, so I tried to re-size. I used the Power Suite from Spotmau, booting off their CD which I have used before without any problems, but in order to increase C: I had to make D: smaller. Well that took quite a while but it seemed to go okay. Then I tried to re-size C: but it wouldn't let me. I could reduce it further, but not make it bigger even though there was 15GB of unallocated space right after C:.

I ran the resizing program again to restore the D: to what I'd started with. That seemed to complete okay, at least the drive map showed C: and D:. Since I hadn't touched C, and I have another partition manager, Easus, I decided to reboot and start over. Nothing happened, just a black,
blank screen with a blinking cursor in the top left corner. Now I was worried!

I tried to boot off a Win XP SP3 CD. That whirrs away for a while then ends in a blue screen:

"A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down... blah blah blah Check your hard drive... Run chkdsk /f..."

Tried it again with the same result. I didn't see any way of running chkdsk. However, I have a Bootit image, all I had to do was restore it. Right? Wrong. Bootit could not restore the image because the partitions were too small, both C: & D:.

So I booted with an Easus boot CD. Using this program the map of the drive is quite different. It shows a primary partition of 6GB with no drive letter, just an *: 18GB Unallocated: Logical C: of 156GB (this is what used to be D Logical D: 46GB (this used to be E.

I accept that there will be no magic bullet to restore the status quo, but how do I get the * partition and unallocated space to become C: again? And change the drive letters from C and; D to D and E? Also I have some images I'd like to recover from the original E:. They should all be there as this partition has not changed at all.

Any suggestions very much appreciated.
