Blue screen says " A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer "


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 . ):

The blue screen

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:

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.




I have a laptop w/ Vista Home Basic and would like to change the OS to XP Pro. I have a new XP Pro to load. Any tips on how to do this?

Thanks.

Thanks for the replies. No luck. When I boot from the XP cd, the install process starts, but when I get to "window is starting", I get the blue screen saying "a problem has been detected and windows is shutting down........."

Any way past this problem?

Thanks.




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
to prevent damage to your computer.

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

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.

*** STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF7CB263C, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000,

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




I have an old P-III that I would like to image and run as a virtual machine on my Windows 7 Pro 64-bit computer, so that I can toss the old box. The P-III is an old Dell Dimension running XP Pro SP2 (32-bit). The Win7 computer has RAID 1; the old one has no RAID.

I created a .vhd image using Disk2VHD, then created a new vm on the Win7 computer pointing to that .vhd file. It will not run. It gets to the XP splash screen, then shows a blue screen message, "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down...", and goes into an endless cycle of rebooting to that point. What am I missing?




Hi guys,

I'm new to the forum, but have been lurking around for a few months when a previous thread helped me diagnose a BSOD for my friend. Sorry guys...I read the 'rules' for BSOD help requests but due to the nature of my problem, no .dmp files are attainable.

I've got a problem that was sprung on to me yesterday, I continualy get blue screens of death on the startup of windows. I'll post the message and then how it happened...(my computer is a dell xps m1530 running windows 7 professional 64 bit)

TURN ON COMP
"Windows failed to start.A recent softwaare or hardware change might be the cause."
Gives me an option for Launch Startup Repair and Start windows normally

Both of these options gives me this:
BLUE SCREEN:
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer

CLFS.SYS

PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

(the normal blurb)

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFF8A000FA54E8, 0x000000000000, 0xFFFFF88000C998F7, 0x000000000002)

*** CLFS.SYS - Adress FFFFF88000C998F7 base at FFFFF88000c79000, Datestamp 4a5bc11d"

I have tried booting from safe mode and even booting from a Dell Windows 7 professional reinstallation disc. I originally got the software through msdnaa at my university.

Yesterday:

The only changes I made (and think may be the problem) was I was updating/ fooling around with my ASIO drivers. I was using a recent project of mine, a converted acoustic to electric drumkit with BFD lite standalone (which uses ASIO4all). All was working well and i have used this in the past, however, i was trying to find a way to run 2 applications with ASIO4all so i could play along to a track without havigng to bring my external soundcard to the other room....so I installed winamp, foobar2000, a multi asio app from steinburg and the plugins to allow winamp and foobar to use asio output. The weird thing in the blue screen didnt crash my computer...I just did a normal restart to 'flush' my computer after all those installs and tinkering around, and the blue screen hapened

If I could even get this thing running in safe mode so i could grab files and do a fresh reinstall I'd be happy!

I hope thats enough info! Thanks in advance for your responses...I await patiently!

I got a Blue Screen in XP Pro SP that won't go away. Very occasionally I've gotten them, but a simple cold reboot would fix it.

"A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down.... *** Stop: 0x0000007E (etc."

I did a quick RAM test. Everything came back OK.

I can dual boot into Windows 2000, so that rules out a hardware issue.

Windows will get to the point right before it displays the login and blue screens.

I tied choosing "last good" and still blue screen.

What can I do next?

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




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.




A friend's computer will not start - she gets a STOP error as follows: 0x0000007B which apparently points to a hard drive or hard drive controller problem. She had a thunder storm and the problem evidenced right after the storm. Computer simply will not start. It offers the NORMAL STARTUP, the three SAFE MODE startups and the LAST GOOD CONFIGURATION but in each case, we get the blue screen saying that "a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to the computer."

The entire STOP error message reads as follows: STOP: 0x0000007B (0xf9e4d640) 0x0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Should I just replace the hard drive? Thanks for any and all help.




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.




Hi,
I'm stuck with a problem with my windows 7 (x64 Home premium on i7-920)
While working with 3dsmax (rendering a picture) a message pop up saying system is unable to access (a rather strange filename I didn't have a chance to write down) few moments after that I got a message from AVG about some fake threats (for a second) and than I got blue screen saying windows shut down to prevent damage to your computer with some code which again I don't have a chance to write down because the blue screen flashes only for a second and than the computer start to boot again - if I choose boot normally I will get the same blue screen and immediate restart shortly after logging in.
I've tried to run system restore from safe mode (couple of times with different points)- it reports that it is unable to complete the system restore.
I've tried to get rid off AVG - though system restore didn't work I managed to run windows in normal mode but after a while I got the same.
I have a dual boot with ubuntu 10 - it runs however it experiences problems while booting as well - it freezes just before loading GRUB but after immediate reset it boots and works ok. I run some diagnostics from linux and everything seems to be all right. (linux is on second HDD)

Anyone with similar experience?




Oh my Notch.
So, I'm BSODing randomly. On only one user.
BSOD text:
Code: 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.

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.

That's the problem.
But my research says that paticular file is... important.

Linked are my 5 latest dumps, the text above being form the latest one.
Any help would be, well, helpful.

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.
