Windows 7 Freeze In Normal Mode, Safe Mode Works Fine

I am out of ideas. Three days ago my computer started freezing within a few minutes after startup. Freezes with no mouse movement and no keyboard. Must shutdown using the power button. Happens every time i start in normal mode. Safe mode works fine. I have done quite a bit of reading and tried a number of things, so far to no avail. Quite a few error codes present, here are some:

Winlog 6000
Service 7001
Distrib 10005
Service 7026
Event log 1101
Kernel 41
Browser 8032
Load perf 3011
Load perf 3012

I have tried restoring, turning off all non-microsoft services, disabling sound, updating video driver, memory test, adjusting bios per g skill tech forum. All hardware showing normal operation in device manager.

I can't find the minidump .dmp folder in c:/windows. The only location i find for .dmp files is in the watchdog folder, and there are quite a few in there. Let me know if i need to upload them.

My computer is a couple of months old and has been working flawlessly until this happened with one exception. (I have been getting occasional monitor blanking for a couple of seconds followed by a notification that the graphics driver has stopped responding and was successfully restored. )

Not Able To Boot Into Normal Mode

I have the exact same laptop and got the exact same error message. It happened after going through windows update and when i rebooted for the system to finish updating, i have this same error message come up. It happen several months ago and everex is no longer around! I can't boot into last know good config, or into safe mode, or to the standard desktop. I have been able to get to a command prompt using a bootable disk - which i thought had the iso image for vista x-32 to assist me with reinstalling software.

Get Hdmi Working In Normal Mode

How to get hdmi working in normal mode? I'm having trouble getting my pc to output to hdmi using 32 bit windows 7. When connected via hdmi the screen shows the post/bios however the sides are cut off. Then it shows the 'starting windows' screen but after this it cuts off and shows 'no signal'.

I have a gigabyte ga-eg45m-ds2h motherboard with an intel g45/g43 express chipset and all of the drivers are up to date. I spoke to someone from intel who looked into the issue further and thought that the problem was that the driver wasn't picking up the digital part of the tv as it wasn't reading the edid properly. He couldn't however offer a solution.

Here is what the intel graphics properties diagnostic gives:

Intel® graphics media accelerator driver report

Report date: 6/8/2010
Report time[hr:mm:ss]: 20:4:58
Driver version: 8. 15. 10. 2119
Operating system: windows 7 (6. 1. 7600)
Default language: english (united kingdom)

Ian ps. It will boot into safe mode using hdmi at 1024x768 fine but as soon as i put it up to 1280x1024 it displays 'no signal' again. Seems to be definitely a problem with the resolutions.

Notebook Keeps Crashing In Normal Mode

Before asking, i'd like to say that i'm not familiar with all the tech terms; i was hoping if someone could just generally tell me what's wrong with my notebook.

So i have an asus eee pc, windows 7 starter. All this time it was working fine, but today when i switched it on, during startup it suddenly crashed and showed this blue screen with stuff written. It was saying something about 'found a problem with the system', and then there was 'system_registry' , 'if this was my first time experiencing this problem then i should reboot' etc etc but i didn't manage to read all of them because it'll quickly show the choose mode screen (safe mode etc) and so the same thing repeats again and again every time. I didn't even managed to get the notebook scanned or anything since it automatically crashes during startup.

What's happening here? Is it a virus or some technical faults i'm not aware of?

Pc Stuck At Login Screen On Normal And Safe Mode

I turned my pc on in the morning and everything loads up until i get to the login screen and i can't do anything. The mouse doesn't move, the touchscreen doesn't do anything, and the same goes for the keyboard. I've tried "safe mode" and the same problem occurs. I've checked for errors and tried to start at last known good configuration and the problem is still there. I booted into windows vista and it worked like a charm. However, whenever i go into windows 7 the problem is present. If anyone could please help, i would be very thankful.

I am attempting to run windows update on a dell laptop. Win7 home premium. Historically has been running and updating just fine. Now all it does is stall at the download of updates. Current message is "downloading 24 updates (0 kb total, 0% complete)". The downloads never even start. I have disabled all firewall and other such software with no effect. Other pcs on the network update just fine. Product is activated. Any suggestions on how to get this laptop updated?

Usb Devices With Sd Card Reader Stalls

I have a new dell precision t1500 running windows 7 64-bit. After a lot of trouble shooting i have found the source of my problem is the following devices: dell u2410 monitor, hp officejet 6500 e709n and hp photosmart 8450. When any two of the three are connected at the same time the boot sequence stalls between the bios load and the windows logo. The computer starts up fine when only one of them is connected. The common thread among the three is that they all have sd card readers. I have had some limited success adjusting the bios settings.

For example disabling the usb storage function in integrated peripherals, but this has bad consequences for other usb connected devices such as my keyboard, mouse and other peripherals like an hd video camera. I have also experimented with the boot sequence of the hard drive and cd/dvd drive, disabled the above mentioned devices as start up candidates and disabled boot from other devices. None of these changes have brought any success. These two printers were previously successfully connected to my previous computer running xp.

System Pause After Start Up From Power Save Mode

In the last couple of days, when starting the computer from power save mode, it seems to freeze. When i open a program, it shows that the computer is working, but nothing pops up. I can still move my mouse pointer over the screen, but there is nothing there. Depending on the program, i can scroll over a section of the screen and find that my pointer changes to the fist pointer, as if to click on it to start whatever process it might be, but still blank. After i use alt, ctrl, delete, to open the task manager, the program pops up and the system goes back to normal. What kind of system error am i experiencing and how can i stop that from happening? The computer is only a few weeks old and i cannot understand why i would such a problem. Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advance.

Hide Administrator Account At Normal Logon

How to hide the built-in administrator account at normal logon? I am now using windows 7 pro at work, and i am trying to recreate the system we had previously on windows xp pro. Namely, i had it set up so that each computer had a standard user account and an admin account. I used the built-in administrator account which is invisible on the normal logon screen - you have to start windows in safe mode to access it.

I have been into advanced user accounts and enabled the administrator account, but it shows up on the standard logon screen - is there any way on 7 to hide this account like it was on xp?

System Icons Not Showing In System Tray

The volume, network, power, and action center icons are greyed out and nothing i do using gpedit. Msc or regedit is working to fix this. I've also had problems with setting and configuring my network which was working just fine until recently.

I've followed these two guides and still nothing:

Upgrade On System With Raid 1 Drive System

What is the best way to upgrade a critical system with windows vista home premium running with two hd's in raid 1, to windows 7? I would prefer to do an in place upgrade, so that i would not have to reinstall applications or data files. One way that occurred to me, would be to disconnect one the hd's during the upgrade. If everything went well, i could reconnect the other drive (or better yet, a new clean drive), which would then be automatically mirrored by the hd controller. Has anyone successfully done this?

System Image Recovery Can't Find System Image

I am trying to restore a backup system image to my repaired pc. It is wiped clean. I have the "repair disc windows 7 64 bit" that i created in windows 7. Using windows 7 backup i have a system image backup on an external wd essentials 1tb usb hard drive. I insert the repair disc and start the system. Get to system recovery options. I have the external hard disk with the system backup image connected. Select system image recovery option. Says "windows cannot find a system image on this computer. Attach the backup hard disk or insert the final dvd from a backup set and click retry. Alternatively, close this dialog for more options.

Retry gives me the same message. Tried starting with drive attached, not attached, same result. Click cancel. Next option selected is "select a system image. " No system image listed. Hit refresh, still nothing. Top of screen says "click advanced to add a network location or install a driver for a backup device if it does not show up in the list below. "  I click on the advanced tab.

Option to "search for a system image on the network" or "install a driver. " I select install a driver. Find the right driver for the wd essential hard drive (disk.sys and partmgr.sys) and when i click on them i get "the specified location does not contain information about your hardware. "  Click ok. Can't find how to load these drivers i am being asked for. Funny thing is that on the screen where i search for driver i can see the wd essential hard drive connected to the system. I can also see the system image files but when i click on them i get the same error message, "the specified location does not contain information about your hardware. "

Xp Mode

Why can't microsoft assist with a windows 7 issue that has not been resolved in the three weeks since i installed the os? Microsoft support has not yet found a resolution to my efforts of getting xp mode to work on my computer.

1. I have installed windows 7 professional in 64 bit on a new 1tb hard drive.

2. Virtualization is turned on inbios.

3. I am running a 3. 22 intel cpu. My ram is 4gb.

4. I have downloaded, installed and uninstalled xp modeand windows virtual pc at least a dozen times over the past three weeks.

5. I am the administrator and only user of this machine.

Yet every time i attempt to install xp mode, i always get a pop-up window that says: "the virtual machine configuration could not be created. User does not have sufficient access right. " The windows 7 forums have not helped. Does anyone at microsoft have any ideas how to fix this program?

Everything else (except a few dated drivers) on windows 7 appears to be working perfectly.

Classic Mode

How do i run win7 in the far far superior classic mode. I despise the fluffy and glitzy 'look pretty' interface of vista and vista-ii (aka win7). W7 has a small handful of new features that are very nice, but the vast majority are just things that are for looks. All of these are things that i'd just as soon not have to look at. Alt-tab works just fine for me. I don't want pop ups all over the place when i hover over the task bar. I don't need any transparent thumbnail previews.

I really just want my os to be clean and simple to use like in classic mode. Just tell me how to set w7 back to the clean and simple classic mode that made my computer so easy to use please. Otherwise i see no real reason to justify spending $200 on yet another 'you gotta have this' piece of software that really only offers a small handful of features that i will use.

Virtual Xp Mode

I'm testing running the virtual xp mode machine off it's own nic instead of natting. First i installed via nat and all works well but when downloading on either machine, one slows. So i decided to install a separate nic, told the virtual machine that was it's connection, and now it's running off of it's own ip, etc. The problem now is that it seems to have slowed the opening of programs on the virtual machine. Are there other settings i'm not configuring to make the virtual machine respond like it's suppose to?

Xp Mode Problem

I bought windows 7 professional, because my kids have games that need xp to run. I dl'ed and installed xp mode and virtual pc, installed zoo tycoon 2 for my son and i'm getting a no video memory error message. If i'm getting this error message when trying to run zoo tycoon 2, how in the world am i going to be able to run autocad 2005? Did microsoft sell us a bunch of lies? After reading some interesting articles about xp mode i'm now discovering that my anti-virus doesn't even provide me any protection while in xp mode.

Can anyone out there provide me some real answers as to why i need xp mode and how i can get it to work?

God Mode

I got an information from one web site about windows 7 god mode.

Although its name suggests perhaps even grander capabilities, windows enthusiasts are excited over the discovery of a hidden "godmode" feature that lets users access all of the operating system's control panels from within a single folder. By creating a new folder in windows 7 and renaming it with a certain text string at the end, users are able to have a single place to do everything from changing the look of the mouse pointer to making a new hard-drive partition.

The trick is also said to work in windows vista, although some are warning that although it works fine in 32-bit versions of vista, it can cause 64-bit versions of that operating system to crash.
To enter "godmode, " one need only create a new folder and then rename the folder to the following:
Godmode. {Ed7ba470-8e54-465e-825c-99712043e01c}

Once that is done, the folder's icon will change to resemble a control panel and will contain dozens of control options. I'm not sure it's my idea of playing god, but it is a handy way to get to all kinds of controls. Can anyone please give some more details about this. Because i couldn't see microsoft say this as a feature. So is it safe to do?

Printing From Xp Mode

I have read many postings across the internet and the various microsoft offerings and none have solved the issue at hand.microsoft state that when an xp application is invoked seamlessly or xp mode is invoked i should be able to share the native printers that have been set up in windows 7.
This is not so.

It is not possible to "see" the native printers from with xp mode, nor is it possible for the invoked applications to print, nor is it possible to add a printer to the xp mode. I am running on a toshiba t130 which is equipped with a non hardware assisted virtualization processor. I have pressed ahead with the installation of windows 7 and the xp mode etc on advise from toshiba and microsoft. This now represents a significant investment of time and money bot of which are in short supply. Please do not now tell me that hav is essential - contrary to current documentation etc.

Questions :-
1. I have no tools tab on my installation of the xp mode within the virtual machine. Is this because there is no hav present on this machine? Obviously all the tutorials etc refer to this.
2. If this is the case please can someone direct me to correct document for the windows 7 virtual pc and xp mode where hav is not available. - I do not actually believe that any such documentation exists.

3. Please can some one explain how to add a printer to xp mode. I have been through a zillion forums where every one states this is as easy as falling off a log - but to my extreme frustration no one actually explains how this is done. Indeed at this time i do not believe that it can be achieved.

4. In the absence of any ability to print directly from applications invoked from the xp mode what alternative process is available.

Xp Mode Not Usable

I want to load and run old software which will run on my xp machine. I loaded w7-pro, then xp mode, and then w-virtual pc. Then i was informed via warning box that i needed, and don't have, a hardware visualization function on my cpu. No, not just bios, the hardware!  I just bought my computer saturday, a new asuz laptop with w7 installed right on it. Why do i now need to have hardware on my brand new computer, which i didn't know about before, just to run xp mode?  Is ms working on a solution that doesn't require additional hardware?

Xp Mode Too Slow

Recently i bought a new hp computer with dualcore processor and 5 gb of ram, 64 bit system, which came with windows 7 home edition, and i intend of using it with my mastercam x3 64-bit. My software is not compatible to windows 7, so i bought the upgrade to windows 7 pro to be able to use the virtual xp mode. The installation went smooth, but in virtual xp mode the mastercam runs unacceptable slow. I dedicated 3gb ram to the virtual xp with no success.

Mastercam dealer told me that is the computer not running fast enough because the program run much faster on a old regular xp machine. In fact the task manager in xp mode, shows me only one core processor (although the computer has dual core, which is visible in w7 task manager) which is used 100% anytime i do any small task in mastercam.

Has the virtual xp mode just an emergency use under w7 and is it known to be slower? Will i get better result from xp if i downgrade from windows 7 to xp pro?

Downloading Xp Mode

I am trying to download windows xp mode for windows 7 professional for a brand new laptop of my boss from my windows vista business machine. But it is unable to do so, as microsoft requires authentication. I am an it guy and i have registered his windows 7 on my email id. If microsoft needs, i can provide it. I cannot download windows xp mode in my office as it is 500 mb is size. Moreover, my boss is not having enough time to spare his laptop for downloading this software and thereby reducing the speed of internet at his own end for other activities like downloading emails on ms outlook, using video chats etc. Can anyone suggest what can be done?

Where Is Xp Mode Installed?

Windows 7 ultimate x64. I ran the installation for xp mode. At the end of the installation there was a check-box to run xp mode on exiting the installer. I unchecked as i had some other things to do. I am now trying to find how to start xp mode. There isn't anything on the start menu for xp mode so how do i start it the first time?

On a side note - why is the installation package so dumb about where to uncompress its files to?  The installation package was on an internal sata drive with almost 300 gb free in the partition. The c: drive is on a sata drive with 183 gb free in the partition. So where does the install uncompress to - to my x: drive which is an external usb drive. Needless to say the file copying was a bit long.

Protected Mode Off, But It Is On

I have a generic desktop i built myself. I have just gone from xp to windows 7. Ie 8 says down the bottom "protection mode: off" but it is on? This was a fresh custom install. Just to give you som idea of protection, i run norton's av 2010 ( just av not suite or 360) with zone alarm pro firewall and forcefield. My toshiba satellite pro l300 was an upgrade from vista, same protection programs, the only difference the laptop says "protection mode:on" in am cert.

3 microsoft vista configuration course accredited and even this has got me stumped. I have tried repair etc. I had ie8 when using xpand vista and it always and so does this come up when open, bottom left "with errors on page". Same protection on both pc and laptop prior to migration.
