BSOD after reinstalling windows.

Q: BSOD after reinstalling windows.

Hello everybody.Im new to this forum.
Im going to college and I recently bought an used laptop.
I bought a Dell Latitude E6520 laptop.

First off the laptop was working fine but only 4 of 8 gb ram was usable .(win ultimate 32 bit )
So I thought why not format the laptop and use 64 bit.(so I could use 8 gb of ram)
Did a clean install, everything went fine , 8 gb ram was usable.Started installing the proper drivers, updating windows etc..

After 2 days or so BSOD started appearing.I never got BSOD so im not good at fixing it.
Please somebody check the dumps and locate the problem.
Also id like to mention that BIOS is locked.(ill really appreciate if somebody can unlock the bios, ill pay)

Thanks a lot

Preferred Solution: BSOD after reinstalling windows.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Here is the pastebin from the windows debugger
I put in an SSD and since I've been getting BSOD every once and a while. I get Kernel data inpage error and Critical process died. I believe the issue is with the csrss but I don't think it is a virus. It was recommended to me to clean install windows but now when I try to refresh it says the drive of instillation is locked and when I try to reset it tells me the required partition is missing.
Can anyone help me out with this? 
Thanks in advance.

so i had a really long day yesterday with my computer and to make a long story short, i had to reinstall windows and format. it workd fine and as i was reinstalling programs, it froze and an error message came when i tried to restart, something about a missing windows file blah bah whatever. so i figured i'd just go ahead and reinstall windows again and format it, again. This is XP Pro by the way, and i inserted the disc followed the instructions, the push enter to install windows and the license agreement comes up. just as i push F8 to agree to the license the Blue Screen Of Death appears with IRQL_NOT_EQUAL_OR_LESS. i know my ram is fine and its not overheating since its not even on before i try to install windows. any help would be greatly appreciated.

A:reinstalling windows xp pro getting BSOD

first of all sorry for grammar mistakes and I really hope you can help me with solving this issue. Every time I'm playing I get BSODs.

I have a PC which I bought last year in September. My OS is Windows 7 x 64.
Yesterday evening I formatted my pc and reinstalled windows 7 - hoped it will solve all the previous problems with BSODs.

So now I have a "clean" PC but again I got a BSOD..

attached the dump file. Your help will be really appreciated...

Thanks so much in advance!

This crash was caused by your video driver. Please use these to remove and then re-install

When upgrading your graphic driver you MUST remove all traces of the current driver. In order to do that we recommend using Guru3D - Driver Sweeper

When it is removed then download and install the fresh copy.

Hi, I keep getting blue screen of death every hour... I am using Windows 7 and have reinstalled it over 5 times and keep getting BSOD. I have Lenovo laptop and use OneKey Recoverey feature to reinstall windows 7. i sometime got Blue screen in middle of reboot process also. I first get plugins start crashing on me like Shockwave etc for google chrome and sometime chrome window just closes. I also get all sort of blue screen errors like:

and many more...

Would this stop if i install vesta instead? and if so could i use Vista CD that came for Dell Laptop? Would it work for Lenovo?
HELP PLEASE... Literally banging my head aganist the wall here...


A:Keep Getting BSOD even after reinstalling Windows 7

BSOD screen flashes out a stop code (error) , that sometimes explain the main cause, and if it did'nt work, then may be its some hardware device that is not supported by your OS, and one more reason is the incompatibility of some software...
May be you have installed a s/w that is not going properly with your system...
I suggest you to restore your system settings and set check points. this will help you i think...and don't forget to restart your system in Safe Mode.
I hope this information will work out...

A:BSOD even after reinstalling Windows 8.1 on Alienware 13.

Update Realtek driver.

Also, in the first dump file, the Killer Network Manger is blamed. This has caused problems in the past. I would suggest you to follow the below quote (Follow Note 2 first. If it does not work, follow note 1) -
(Thanks Usasma!)At times the Killer Network Manager may cause BSOD problems:

NOTE1:Link thanks to blueelvis (15Oct2014): This is a method for removing all the network software and only installing the driver. Perfect for those issues that can't be resolved any other way!

NOTE2: See this link first: BSOD while playing on msi gt70 dragon edition 2 (thanks to kaelaan) It appears that the Killer Service problem was solved with the latest release of the Qualcomm versions of the drivers (so try updating to a version dated from later in 2014).
The Qualcomm Atheros Killer Service/KillerNetManager is known to cause BSOD's. Please follow the workaround instructions here:

First, open the Run dialog (Win + R keys) and type in "services.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Scroll down and locate the "Qualcomm Atheros Killer Service" and right click on it. Select "Stop"
Right click on it again and this time select "Properties"
In the dropdown box for "Startup type", select "Disabled", then click on the "OK" button at the bottom of the window

Next, open Task Manager (right click on TaskBar and select "Task Manager")
Click on the "More details" dropdown (if present)
Click on the "Startup" tab
Scroll down and locate the "KillerNetManager" entry, right click on it and select "Disable"
There may also be an Install Shield (with the Killer gaming K next to it), if so Right click on it and select "Disable"
Finally, restart the system in order for the changes to take affect.
At times the Killer Network Manager will continue to load. If so, it's usually listed in the MSINFO32...Software Environment...Startup Programs section. If it is, please try this:

It may be that the instructions aren't stopping everything.
In some cases, there's a program running out of the Program Files/Program Files (x86) directory.
"c:\program files\qualcomm atheros\killer network manager\killer~1.exe" (NOTE: killer~1.exe is most likely killernetmanager.exe)
In other cases, there's a program running out of c:\windows\installer\{Long string of letters, numbers, and dashes}\networkmanager.exe_130c27d738f34c89bddf21bcfd74b56d.exe (the long string of letters and numbers may change)

Here's some things to try
1) Please see if there are any entries in the Startup tab of Task Manager that are related to Qualcomm/Atheros/Killer Network Manager (and NOT the card itself) and disable them (please let us know what you find) Be careful as the wrong selection can disable the network card.
2) Check in "msconfig" for any entries that aren't in the Startup tab of Task Manager. Let us know if you find any Qualcomm/Atheros/Killer entries there (we'll disable them differently if they are there).
3) Locate the "c:\program files\qualcomm atheros\killer network manager\killer~1.exe" and rename the .exe to .BAD (the killer~1 is actually a filename that starts with killer and ends with .exe) There will be an error in event viewer, but it'll stop the bugger from loading.
4) Locate the "c:\windows\installer\{Long string of letters, numbers, and dashes}\networkmanager.exe_130c27d738f34c89bddf21bcfd74b56d.exe" entry and rename the last .exe to .BAD (the long string of letters and numbers may change)

A:BSOD after reinstalling windows 8.1 and MB drivers.

Only 67 Windows Updates installed. Most systems have 80 to 100 or more (I've seen as high as 132). Please visit Windows Update and get ALL available updates (it may take several trips to get them all).

Don't worry about the specific number, it's just important that you have checked and installed any updates that were available (and didn't experience any errors).

You have 5 hard drives. What is the make/model/wattage and age of your Power Supply?

Out of 8 memory dumps there were 7 different BSOD error codes. The differing error codes are usually symptomatic of a lower level problem within the system. They are usually caused by one of these things:
- borked (broken) hardware (several different procedures used to isolate the problem device)
- BIOS issues (check for updates at the motherboard manufacturer's website)
- overclocking/overheating - You'll know if you're overclocking or not. If uncertain we can suggest things to check.
- dirt/dust/hair/fur/crud inside the case. Blow out the case/vents with canned air (DO NOT use an air compressor or vacuum as they can cause damage to the system)
- missing Windows Updates
- compatibility issues (3rd party hardware/drivers), older systems, or even pirated systems
- low-level driver problems
- or even malware (scanned for when we ask for hardware diagnostics from Initial Hardware Diagnostics or Hardware Diagnostics ).

You can get a head start on the hardware diagnostics if you'd like - they are located here: Hardware Diagnostics

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! :

LGBusEnum.sys Mon Nov 23 20:36:48 2009 (4B0B38B0)
Logitech Keyboard

LGVirHid.sys Mon Nov 23 20:36:48 2009 (4B0B38B0)
Logitech Gamepanel Virtual HID Device Driver

Please note the drivers below that date from before the release of Windows 8.1 (17 Oct 2013) - check to see that each and every one is compatible w/Windows 8.1 (at the manufacturer's website). If not, you must either remove the device and it's software - or locate a Windows 8.1 compatible update on the web. Removing some drivers may make the system unstable - so if you're unable to find updates, post back for info on the one's that can/cannot be safely removed.

The drivers that are struckout don't have updates available (AFAIK).
DO NOT delete them, just leave them be.

If all of this (including the hardware diagnostics) doesn't stop the BSOD's, please run Driver Verifier according to these instructions: Driver Verifier Settings

I get seemingly random BSOD from a fresh install of Windows 7 64 bit. I have an Intel i7-3770S, an Asus Sabertooth z77, an nVidia Geforce 770, 16GB of Corsair Vengeance DDR3, and a Corsair 750W PSU.

I have uninstalled Eset NOD32 Antivirus, AI Suite II, Daemon Tools (plus sptd.sys) and I ran driver verifier. It told me Aupio.sys was causing the crashing so I uninstalled AI Suite II. I ran the tool to collect all the .dmp files. I tried to analyze them myself but it's seriously something different almost every time. I'll post it and then try checking my hard drive for errors. Thanks so much for reading.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable.

My recommendation is to start with a clean slate, and install a genuine version of Windows. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them

Hello I had a very stable Windows setup that had one issue when I tried to wake it from sleep it would instead POST I could see the BIOS loading but then somehow restore all open programs from before I put it to sleep I realized this issue was overclock-dependent and experimented with the clock speed and finally found the limit above reinstalling BSOD since Windows. trouble which this issue would occur GHz I then raised the clock up to GHz tested the issue and this time instead of booting up my hard drive corrupted and Windows failed to boot BSOD trouble since reinstalling Windows. I reinstalled Windows from the disk as a fresh installation however since then my system has BSOD trouble since reinstalling Windows. been much less stable than previously and I've been dealing with occasional BSODs Some of them seem to be overclock dependent the BIOS settings which had previously given me spectacular stability running Prime all day at GHz were no longer stable An example of this is in the last crash dump from I was running Dragon Age and a mod error caused the BSOD I reverted the BIOS settings to default and now instead of causing a BSOD the game crashed to desktop which enabled me to find the problem troubleshoot it and fix it My latest BSOD came with the BIOS as default settings the computer crashed and restarted when I was waking the computer from sleep At this point I'm not sure how to further troubleshoot the issues I've used the information collector recommended on this forum and have attached the zip to this post My only other lead is that Windows couldn't find my onboard audio driver so I downloaded it from a Gigabyte motherboard support page and installed it Afterward it kept popping up every time I booted the computer to tell me it wasn't compatible with my version of Windows so I uninstalled it and deleted the driver file via Device Manager at which point Windows auto-installed a default audio driver which seems to work fine I'm not sure if it's relevant because I fixed this on but I'm disclosing in case it could possibly be involved in the BSODs since then Could anyone suggest troubleshooting for my system Thanks

I would be thankful if you guys could help me deal with BSOD. Normally I was getting irql_not_less_or_equal, but it was not limited to this single one.

By saying it is super random I mean I can be away from the computer and it may happen, or during watching a movie or sth. I did fresh reinstall of W7 Pro few days ago and irql_... happened when I tried to connect to a wifi network.

It's been happening for more than a year, usually like once a week, but sometimes everyday.
I remember I might have updated BIOS settings and that's when it either started or increased it's frequency. Regardless, I would love to hear some advice on this one guys.


A:BSOD super random; after reinstalling Windows 7

Unfortunately, even though, you had many BSODs you only gave us one dump. Each dump gives a little clue as to the cause. So without additional reports, I must rely on the one given. It indicates a driver, update driver to solve problem

Hey. I'm getting a BSOD at completely random times, and can't figure out any reason why it happens. I even reinstalled Windows, hoping it would fix it, but no dice. Hoping someone here would be able to help me with it, thanks in advance!

A:BSOD at random points, even after reinstalling windows.

Hi Regien and welcome to SF

Firstly can you please update to Windows 7 Service Pack 1 and ensure all windows updates are installed.

Your AVG Anti-virus should be uninstalled.

Please install Microsoft Security Essentials:

Recommended from a strict BSOD perspective, compatibility & stability compared to other antiviruses/internet security software.
It is free and lightweight:-

Run Chkdsk /f /r to detect and resolve any file system corruption:

Click on the Start > Type in search cmd
Right click cmd at top and Run as Administrator
At the promt type Chkdsk /f /r (note the space between chkdsk and /f/r)

Also please perform a System File Check:

Click on the Start > Type in search cmd
Right click cmd at top and Run as Administrator
Type SFC /scannow at the prompt

Please post back any results.

Alright i'm very new to this forum as i've been looking for an answer to my problem. So sorry if i seem very n00bish at this.

Recently last week i had installed a new motherboard and psu onto my computer
(as both died somehow :S)
So i reformatted windows etc. and continuously last week i would get BSODs.
I used BlueScreenView to see what was causing it and it said ntoskrnl.exe was the problem.

So i figured something must've gone wrong with the installation, so i reformatted (well deleted this time the partition), and reinstalled windows again.

I'm still getting the BSOD however, and it is very frustrating.

I know people would normally upload their dmp file but i'm not exactly sure how to get that.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I keep getting BSODS I've reinstalled windows several times, used the windows memory diagnostic tool and chkdsk, but no errors.

I've even switched motherboards(because I sometimes lost signal to monitor+usb devices, sometimes got RAM errors while using windows memory diagnostic and even disk read errors allthough chkdsk says everything is fine s:..) to fix the bsods.. but now, after a week with the new mobo I get BSODs again..

Specs are
Win7 Ultimate x64 Retail
AMD Phenom II x4 965 BE @ 3,4GHz
10 GB of Ram(2x2GB @ 1333mhz, 1x 4GB @ 1333mhz, 1x 2GB @ 1666mhz)
MSI 870-C45

A:BSOD even after reinstalling windows and replacing motherboard.

Please start by running these free diagnostics to rule out the most common problems:
Also, as you've related memory problems, also run the free Prime95 program on this page: Additional Hardware Diagnostics

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
NOTE: For Vista, read these notes:

Read these notes for installing Vista SP1: Learn how to install Windows Vista Service Pack 1 (SP1)
Read these notes for installing Vista SP2: Learn how to install Windows Vista Service Pack 2 (SP2)

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.

Do you have a USB sound device? If so, try uninstalling it to see if the BSOD's stop (just a hunch on my part).

If the above steps don't stop the BSOD's, please zip up and upload any new memory dumps with your next post - and we'll see what we can figure out from there.

The following info is just FYI, I've already addressed the issues that I saw in the above paragraphs

- Further info on BSOD error messages available at:
- Info on how to troubleshoot BSOD's (DRAFT):

Well it all started while ago. It seemes that one of the reasons might be ntoskrnl.exe
I just reinstalled windows, and when I was watching a youtube video, my computer just crashed - BSOD. Maybe I need to reinstall a new soundcard driver, but I am not sure what is my soundcard.
It also seems my keyboard is messed up after reinstall.

A lot of the time, well before the reinstall it said something about BAD_POOL_HEADER and win32skys

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

System specs
Raedon HD 6670 1GB
AMD Athlon II x4 640
Mainboard G41M-P28
PSU seems to be ATX 12V v2,2 EPS 12V
480 Watt
Motherboard seems to be A780LM-M

I am pretty noob at all of this... So my apologizes and I hope you are patient.

Also here is a screenshot

A:Random BSOD-s. Just happened again after reinstalling windows.

Mainboard is another name for the Motherboard so with a AMD CPU this is not your mainboard>>Mainboard G41M-P28<< As that is a Intel socket 775 G41 chipset board.

You have a ECS A780LM-M > ECS Web Site

BSOD is blamed on > NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM (24)

Make sure you have the latest chipset drivers form the link to ECS above.

Test the hard drive with the drive manufacturers diagnostic utility.

A:BSOD 0x0000001e after reinstalling windows and installing drivers

The zip you uploaded does not contain any crash dump.

Follow it: Dump Files - Configure Windows to Create on BSOD
Go to Option Two, Point 2. Download the .reg file and merge it in registry by double clicking it.

Now wait for another BSOD. When it occurred, search the .dmp files manually in the default path: C:\Windows\Minidump or %SystemRoot%\Minidump. See if the crash dump is recorded or not (hopefully it will be recorded).Post it following the Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions.

Dont run any disc cleanup tool before you upload another zip.

Tenyoriu, I'll try to help with your problems. You have 3 dump files and from all of the errors I see, you seem to have some problems.

I am just going to show you a few of them. I could probably fill up the page with code, which I doubt means much to you. But, then I am going to give you a list of several things to do. I only ask that you read the instructions carefully and follow them. Hopefully we can get to the bottom of what the main issue is.

I know you said you uninstalled Avast, but it and the next one appear in every dump file.

Page Fault in Non-Paged Area BSOD (STOP 0x00000050) constantly on XP Pro Dell laptop. Cannot even boot in safe mode. No new hardware, unsure of new software (my dad's old laptop from work that has not been used in a few months.)

Tried reinstalling from Windows XP Pro CD, however, when it got to the point of looking for existing installations of Windows, got the same BSOD. So now I'm completely stuck. Hoping someone out there has an idea for me?

Thanks much.

A:BSOD: Even when reinstalling XP via CD..

Have you
1. tried booting to safe mode?
2. looked for minidumps in the minidump directory?
3. checked hard-drive for integrity?
4. checked memory (Memtest)? Defective memory (including main memory, L2 RAM cache, video RAM) or incompatible software (including remote control and antivirus software) might cause Stop 0x50 messages.

5. reviewed and followed the advice here ...

And are you using an XP Pro CD that is an OEM or branded version from another system?

A:Bsod and now freezing when reinstalling

<<Ran HDD diagnostics and Memtest with no errors>> sounds like a hard drive problem...but it could be a damaged partition structure if the hard drive truly checks out as functionally OK.  I take it back,  NTFS errors can indicate such.
I'd try to run chkdsk /r command and see if it completes without a problem.  If any onscreen error message comes up that it cannot continue...please post same.
Oops...I just read where you state that you tried a different hard drive in the system, so those theories should not apply.
I also know that a failing CMOS battery can cause all sorts of false alarms re RAM, drivers, etc., with all items being hardware-related.
I also suppose that RAM problems can result in what you seem to have experienced...but I've not seen/experienced such.

What does that mean? Did your old PSU quit? If not, try using it again and see how it goes. The PSU you now have is junk and could be your problem. Keep in mind, the PSU is the most important part of the computer and should not be skimped on when replacing.

A:BSOD in the middle of reinstalling WinXP

It definitely sounds like a corrupted installation.

DBAN or Killdisk would erase the hard drive completely, thus allowing you to start the installation from scratch.

Although, you say that your PC won't boot from the CD drive now? Have you tried making a copy of DBAN or Killdisk just to see if the PC would boot from one of those?

Unit was getting slower day by day. Ran online and local Av, malware, rootkits and checked disk etc and found nothing. Reinstalled macrium image and all file assciation was gone. Some folders had 3 of the same file, File names were black and some blue in color. Color had happened to some files in the past. Some picture icons were empty, some icons had pictures but no titles. Found pictures in 7 diff folders and my docs were all over the place. So put together what I could and copied to another disk. Reformed the disk and got BSOD. Put the disk in another PC and reformed it -ok. Put back in orignal unit BSOD. Put a new disk in unit and BSOD. Reset the BIOS and it took -time wise - longer to show BSOD.

I bought the PC a long time ago from a friend and it was running on Win 7 Ultimate 64x, but it wasnt genuine, as such the updates where turned off so i couldnt use Visual Studio

Hey Namo, welcome to SF .

0x101, unfortunately this bug check code doesn't contain enough
information in the minidump file be analyzed fully.

Please upload the Kernel dump file using Dropbox or Skydrive, the file is located in the Windows directory
and is usually a few hundred Megabytes in size.

The single hint I can get from the minidump is with relation to the GPU (Graphics card).

What is the make, model and age of your PSU (Power Supply)?
Fill out this form and post back the result:
Power Supply Calculator

Test for thermals and stability:
Download HWinfo and post a Screenshot of the sensors window, one at idle and another while putting load on the PC using Prime95 for the CPU side and Furmark for the GPU.Before running Prime95 make sure to enable Round-off checking (see 1st post under the tutorial).

It is not mandatory to run both tests simultaneously, although possible as long as the temperatures are under constant monitoring.

Pay close attention to part 3 of the tutorial "If you have errors"
Test the RAM with Memtest86+ for at least 7-10 passes. It may take up to 22 passes to find problems. Make sure to run it once after the system has been on for a few hours and is warm, and then also run it again when the system has been off for a few hours and is cold.

When done with the testing procedure take a picture and upload it here.

This will help you to determine where the issue is origination from (if any):

But if it starts showing errors, Stop testing. Errors/red lines means one or more RAM is faulty. But the fault may occur due to a faulty DIMM slot, too, which is a motherboard component. Using memtest86+, you can discriminate between a faulty RAM and a faulty motherboard.

How? Say you have two RAM sticks and two DIMM slots. You obtained errors at the test with all RAM sticks installed. Now, remove all the sticks but one. Test it in all the available slots, one by one. Continue the same procedure for all the available sticks.
How to make the inference that is it a RAM issue or it is a motherboard issue? Suppose you have got the result like that:

But if you have got a result like that:

So, my mothers boyfriends computer is about 2 years old, and its got xp on it. It usually runs fine, and he doesnt use it for much besides low end programs and internet browsing via IE

Well, tonight he went afk, the computer went to sleep, and he got back and the system was running really slowly. He rebooted, and now it gets the bluescreen when windows is loading. Something ive also noted before, about the past couple months, is that his computer has been booting really slowly. (it takes ~five minutes from login to open and have a usable browser window open) interestingly enough, the bluescreen just flashes, and auto reboots the computer. Ive heard of this before, from my friends. Whether or not they are right about this, they said it had to do with a 'reboot on bluescreen' setting. I dont know, and im not sure if i should care, because...

We couldnt get it to boot in anything. safe mode, last safe config, regular w/e. So i tried installing w7 on it... but its really laggy. It takes about 10 minutes to get to the part where it asks you what language, and where you are, and it completly hangs up at the 'starting windows' screen shortly after clicking install.

I was just wondering, based on what ive said, can anybody advise me on what i should do? We would rather not have to buy a new computer for him, and the last place i ever want to go is to geeksqaud -.- (no offense to any geeksquad members)

Short version: computer bluescreen flashes and resets on OS boot up, is way too laggy for the system specs, (is 2 years old) and even freezes or doesnt load when installing a new operating system

Thanks in advance guys.

One way would be to do a clean install of win 7. that woould cure the problem (probably) and get him on a newer OS. Before you do go to MS and get the upgrade advisor to se if his computer can do it.

I was in the process of updating my drivers on a new hard drive (Old one failed), after re-installing windows 7 on it, when i got a BSOD. I feel like it might have something to do with one of the drivers i installed/re-installed, but the log's below so feel free to have a look. I've created a number of restore points as well as a system repair disk.

Stress test your graphics card with Furmark

I recommend running it for around 30 minutes


Furmark will increase the temperature of your GPU rapidly so keep and eye on your temperatures

If that finds no problems then please try updating your graphics driver to the latest version.

The problem is during the middle of the installation, at the expanding windows processes it says there's multiple corrupt files on my C: harddrive, which is where I'm attempting to install the OS on. It says to run chkdsk utility utility, but anything beyond the screen with bios always says there's a disk load error to start, or another error which I can't remember but would only allow me to restart to remove the error. Is there anyway to access the corrupt files or to let me run chkdsk utility?

I would like to reinstall Windows XP Pro on an existing partition. My hard drive has 4 partitions, and Windows XP is on one of them. How can I wipe out the current install, and install on a clean partition without removing the other partitions? The Windows XP partition is formatted with NTFS, so I cannot format it. If I use FDISK to delete just the Windows XP partition, will the install set that partition's drive letter to C:? Or will it use the first available drive letter following all the other drives? I also have Partition Magic 8.0. Can I use that to accomplish this?

A:Reinstalling Windows XP Pro

Boot with the winxp cd. During setup you will be given the option as to where to install. Pick the partition you want to delete / format; the next option will let you delete the partition and then format with the file system of your choice. Setup will then continue with the install of xp. If you need help setting the bios to boot from the cd as first boot device, post back.

A:Reinstalling Windows

Turn the unit on and put the XP disk in the drive.
Leave the disk in the drive and restart the unit,
Watch the screen for a message that says "Press any key to boot from CD,
Press a key on the keyboard,
Wait while it goes through starting from the disk,
[You may have to press F8 during startup to accept the EULA]
When you get to the screen with the box that shows the current version of XP installed press "D" on the keyboard,
Press "Enter"
Press "L"
You now should have a screen asking what file system you want to format to, NTFS should be selected by default,
Press enter,
The disk will be formatted and the installation will automatically begin when the format is finished,
During the installation the computer will restart DO NOT press a key to boot from the CD again !
At that point the unit will boot from the hard drive and continue the installation.
After awhile you will be asked to "name" your computer,
I suggest naming it the same as the main user ID.
[Example, I have an XP unit named "testbox" the user name is also "testbox"
You will be asked if you want to turn on automatic updates, select NO or Not now,
You will be asked if you want to setup a network connection, click on skip,
You will be asked to enter a user name and password,
Enter the same name you used for the unit ,
Only enter a password if you want to have to log on every time XP starts,
[If you have more then one user you can enter passwords later]
Follow the prompts to finish.
When you get to the desktop the only icon showing will be the recycle bin
Click on the "Tour XP balloon [or icon in the taskbar by the clock] and click "Cancel"
Go to Start>Control Panel,
Double click "Taskbar and Start Menu"
Click on the "Start Menu" tab
Put a dot in the circle by "Classic Start Menu"
[That will put the icons on the desktop]
Click OK
Double click on "Folder Options"
Click on the "View" tab
Go down the list until you find "Show hidden files and folders"
[for future use]
put a dot in the circle by it
Click OK
Close the Control Panel
Double click on "My Computer"
Right click on the "C:" drive
Left click on "Properties"
Click on the "Tools" tab
Click on "Defragment Now"
Defrag the drive
When you are done start installing your other programs and applications
[Defrag again when finished]
When they are installed if you have the "activate XP" notice do the activation,
When you have gotten this far either go to Windows Update and do the updates or go to "My Computer" and right click on it
Left click on "Properties"
When the box opens click on the "Automatic Updates" tab
Put a dot in the circle next to "Automaic [Recommended]
Click OK.
In order for the Automatic Updates to begin right away turn the unit completely off then restart it.

Windows Reinstalling PC without affecting your files quot says that Reinstalling Windows 8.1? it'll keep the files However it says that if your PC isn't running well Now obviously I wouldn't want to lose media content and the likes in the process so Refreshing will be the option Question is will it be effective Say for example if it would do the same job as option minus the file removal Also what would happen after since this came pre-installed with W and I just upgraded to and I also have themes installed rd party Thanks in advanced Xian

Hello, my laptop came with Vista, I upgraded to Windows 7 (using acer's upgrade disc), but I want to reinstall Windows 7 but I'm not sure if it will work, does anyone have any idea about this?

I only have the upgrade disc and the format drive (rather than keep a copy of /users directory).

Also, if I do this I'll need to reinstall office 2007, will my key work again? (This is my third install with it).

A:Reinstalling Windows 7

Fortunately the Upgrade Kits have a clean copy DVD of Win7, so you can back up your files, boot from the DVD, select Custom install, use Drive Options (advanced) to delete all partitions, create New as you wish, then format before Installing to first partition.

Any Vista recovery partition is disabled when Win7 installs so you can delete it. If you failed to make your Recov disks first, try tapping the key given for Recovery on first bootup screen. If it doesn't start recovery then that is just wasted space.

The installer is mostly driver-complete, with more arriving soon in Windows Update. Any drivers missing in Device Manager can be found on the Acer driver/apps CD included in the kit, along with favorite apps you want. Others can be found on the Acer Support Downloads webpage for your model.

As with Win7 on your laptop, you own the copy of Office for life and can reinstall it as often as you wish as long as you save the key. Make of copy of the CD or extract the .iso using ImgBurn to backup.

When complete, save a WIn7 backup image to a primary partition and externally so you never have to reinstall again, just reimage the HD or a replacement using the Win7 DVD repair console.

I have created a Disk Image on an external HD using Windows 7 restore process.
If a need arises, will I be able to boot of the external HD to restore Windows 7.
I did not use DVDs because the size of the image was around 60GB which would take a lot of disks.

You should be able to restore the Full System Image from the Repair/Installation disc. If you don't have an installation DVD or repair disc, be sure to create one first: System Repair Disc - Create

Four weeks ago I wiped my hard drive clean and reinstalled Windows XP, and managed apparently to create a second? partition. At that time I had 625 of my drive space free after the reinstallation. By yesterday my free space was down to a little less than 10%. A friend suggested that I try reinstalling Windows again. I did and am currently showing 32% of my hard drive is free. I know virtually nothing about partitions, and never knew I had one before going through this a month ago. Is there an easy way to delete the partition(s) and regain more of my drive's space back?

Hello, I recently had a series of events which has led me to decide to reinstall Windows 7. However, I do not have the CD so I am using an ISO USB. I want to reinstall, but keep all of my files, but I can not find out how to access the USB. I have tried changing the BIOS, but then found that this did not work. Does anybody know how to access an option to reinstall windows using an ISO on a USB?

I've recently purchased an SSD and would like to utilize it as a boot drive. I am happy with my configuration and would like just to install Win7 on the SSD and use it to boot -- with all other hardware and drives remaining without change. Is that possible? If so, would you please provide some guidance. Thanks

A:Reinstalling Windows on a New HD


If you just add the SSD and install an OS to it and don't remove the old OS Windows will configure a dual boot between the 2 separate Operating Systems and that will have to be dealt with.

The best way to go is to disconnect the Hard Disk Drive with the "older" OS on it and then add the SSD and connect it to the #1 SATA port on the mobo and set it as the second boot device after the CD/DVD drive in the BIOS and do a clean install to the SSD as usual.

How to Do a Clean Installation with Windows 7

Then when the "new" OS is booting and all is well, power down and reconnect the other HDD to deal with the older OS at will; be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed.

Have you made the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Disks?


We always assume you have made your Recovery Disks using the OEM manufacturer's Recovery Media Creator app the first day you had your new PC.
& made the Startup Repair CD. (Windows 8 only)
Recovery Drive - Create with USB Flash Drive in Windows 8
System Repair Disc - Create in Windows 8 (Windows 8 only)

2. How would I go about installing/uninstalling windows? I downloaded the XP files but would I be able to install it using windows and switch between them somehow? (have both till I delete 1) Also, is there a way to order the CDs or something without buying a new product ID?

a while back I had my computer fixed by a technitian and he had written me this note:

"If you ever re-install Windows, you will have to use a fake SCSI controller driver to foul windows into using the Highpoint controller".

This was written because apparently the ATA chip on my board was damaged, but he worked around the problem by routing my HD through the highpoint ATA66 controller. On the bootup screen my HD doesnt show up but it does show up on the second screen which is the highpoint controller screen (this is what the guy had written down for me)....

I desperately need to reformat because my computer is so slow...I was wondering how i can format and reinstall windows with the instructions that he left me....thanks

Reinstalling windows and reformatting aren't the same thing. Also, why is your pc slow? What makes you think a reinstall is necessary? Run CCleaner, MS antispyware, and zone alarm filewalker. See what happens to your performance then. Afterwords, a defrag may be in order. Check. post back.

I was prompted to start a new thread; I trust that this is the correct area.
I have Windows 7 installed on a SSD, Data on hard drive.
I am experiencing severe instabality problems, considering formatting drives and starting over, this wil be a huge task considering the amount of data involved, I have two questions;
How important is it to disconnect the HD when reinstalling Windows on the SSD?
If I were to reinstall Windows over the top of the existing setup, would I still have to disconnect the HD?

A:Reinstalling Windows 7 on SSD

It should not be a huge task at all, if the data is on the hard drive, which is where it should be.

Disconnect the hard drive and re install windows on the ssd, make sure the ssd is setup properly.

Align it.

SO...can get windows 7 installations disks from Microsoft for free? If not can i restore my computer to factory settings then re-upgrade to 7 for free?


A:Reinstalling Windows 7 (HELP)

You need the Win7 DVD for reinstalls and repairs. Order the DVD from MS using your purchase receipt at the 800 number Customer Service number on the site you bought it.

If you can borrow a DVD to copy, or otherwise download it, all versions are included in the installer but hidden due to the presence of an ei.cfg file in Sources folder. Extract files, delete file, recompile into ISO to burn All-Versions DVD using this: Bootable ISO - Create from Installation Files You can burn the DVD from the same drop down menu where ISO is created.

Then boot the DVD, choose your licensed version, insert the key and clean install. The Upgrade version DVD will scan the HD, see the installed OS (which can be existing Win7), and allow Upgrade version key. You can then use Custom>Drive Tools to delete partitions, create new ones as you wish, and format before install.

As long as you have your files backed up,you might as
wipe the partitions off the drive so you can use all the space.
Make sure you have the drivers for your hardware.
Boot to the windows 7 DVD and start the installation.
At the partition selection screen,click more options.
Delete all the partitions on the drive.
Create a new partition the full size of the drive.
Format it and continue the installation.
You can do all that from the partition selection screen without
having to restart the computer.

Will I run into any problems since I already registered my copy of windows on my old hard drive. And theres no way I can keep running my current hdd as my main drive and using my new one for the mass of my file storage since a lot of programs I install need to put stuff onto the drive windows is on, and also I need 500mb free on the drive windows is on so I can burn CD's with the XP interface.

Slip that recovery CD into your CD drive and see what options it offers. Options will probably include format the disk and do a clean install. (You can simply exit without doing anything; i.e., looking at the disk does not commit you to taking any action.)

Recently my copy of Windows XP as been acting up so I decided to reinstall it only to realize that the company that provided my PC never gave me a copy of the disk or anything regarding Windows installation. I looked around and found out that the i386 directory on my hard drive is a copy of the installation disk. Also my computer provider never gave me the activation code. So my questions are,
1. Is there anyway I could burn the i386 onto a disk and use it reinstall XP?
2. And I could would I need my activation code to make my system genuine?

Ive recently been infected with the infamous nimda worm. When my virus scan/spyware blockers did nothing to fight it, I turned to the option of reformatting my computer. After reformatting I was unpleasently surprised to see the worm unload itself and burrow on the first start up. I tried reformatting again, this time using the destructive reformat option (deleting everything and restoring back to factory shipped settings). However, the reformat was unsuccesful and windows was not completely installed, preventing my system from even starting up. My system recovery files are kept on a seperate partition on my hard drive, not a disk. Is it possible the nimda worm spread to that partition and infected those files? If so, is there any way i could go about recovering that drive? or will I be forced to buy disks and reinstall my OS in that manner?

Help is very much apreciated
