Bsod During Boot Process


I was playing an on-line game when the system locked up. The keyboard was unresponsive, no ctlr-alt-del or anything else seemed to have an effect, i power cycled and now the system cannot pass the boot process before bsoding. I get the windows saying starting windows and it just starts to draw the microsoft 4 color logo (about 3 to 5 pixels worth) when it bsods and reboots. Trying the repair mode it just bsods again but without rebooting. If i try the command line it stops when it gets to classpnp.sys then reboots.

I did a full memory test using memtest86, all 8g passed 3 iterations.

If i try the repair, it "loads windows files" and then bsods with a machine_check_exception with a  stop value of 0x0000009c (0x000000000000003, 0xfffff88002865b60, 0x00000000b220000a, 0x00000000002010a)

Disappearing Drives, Unstable Boot Up Process

I've been using the windows 7 on my old asus desktop for a few months without a glitch until recently when the hard drives started disappearing by themselves or freeze after copying large files from the external hd and crashed. I reinstall the windows 7 few times, all of the oldie drivers that came with the pc, and the os updates nothing seem to help.

My pc is set to the s3 mode and three of the four internal hard drives are 1tb in sizes and they are all sata drives. I have a cd drive that is on the pata and it doesn't seem to cause any trouble. When the hard drives went to sleep, they woke up without any problem in the past.

When it was fresh installed a few months back, the windows 7 os was already providing all that was needed to run the pc to communicate with the rest of the internal hard drives for a few months without a single problem. I did use the drivers that came with the pc only to solve the problems but the symptions are persistent. I've been downloading microsoft updates regularly from the ms site so my pc is up to date as far as the os is concern and i wonder if the newer updates are to blame.

The moment the pc is booted up, "my computer" icon would show one or two, sometimes all three hard drives (excluding the main c drive) and when one of the troublesome hard drive is clicked to open, the pc would hang indefinitely. Only shutting down the pc completely (not resetting) would allow the boot up process to continue back but often the pc wouldn't boot up but frozen up on the big windows 7 ms icon at the beginning of the boot process indefinitely. If it was the hard drives problem, one or two, even all three drives wouldn't disappear randomly.

Cant Boot Win 7 Bsod

I installed a driver for my laptops webcam. Told me it needed to restart. And that was the last time windows booted. Now windows never loads, once it finishes the (microsoft) loading bar and baam bsod
Same thing with safemode and all those things tried them all, even tried the booting dvd did the repair system option , but it never finds where it is installed. Linux runs perfectly. And opens the windows user files (c:) so nothing is corrupted. I'm using windows 7 ultimate.

Bsod When Try To Boot Into System Repair

Windows media player and a few other programs freezing. (Bsod when try to boot into system repair). I have been having problems lately with windows media player freezing while trying to load files, also msn has been acting up. I ran sfc/scannow and it said there were corrupt files found but could not be fixed. I do have a log of that also. I then booted into system repair (or at least attempted to) and got the error message below.

Error message: http://imgur.com/flqhs.jpgsfc/scannow

Dual Boot Boot Problem After Resizing Win 7

Boot problem on dual boot after resizing windows 7 (32bit) switched from drive w: to drive g: i have a dual boot system that boots into win 7 (64) (c:drive) or win 7 (32) (w:drive). I needed to increase the size of win7 (64) drive and in order to do so i needed to move the win 7 (32) partition. Now i can still boot into win 7 (64) with no problem but when i boot into win 7 (32) it windows states that it is not a genuine copy and it is actually on drive "g:"! Anyway to change it back to "w:" because i believe this is the problem.

Dual Boot - Move Boot Image To Second Drive

I have a problem with two different drives both running win7, one 32 the other drive64, on a dual boot system. I want to pull the win32 drive, but it also has my boot information for the win64 drive. When removed it will not boot. I have been working on this for 5-6 weeks. I want to remove the win7/32 and put the boot image of win7/64 on the second drive.

I booted from the win764 install dvd, and went to there pair your computer. The placethat displays the operating systems installed, none will show. I have tried bootsect from the command prompt. It seems to work, but tells me no partition on the second drive. Or on another attribute used, it can not find the path to the drive. I have tried rebuild bcd, fixmbr, etc.

Boot Takes Minutes, Will Boot In Safe Mode

When i booted up this arvo, the computer took 15 minutes to get to the log in screen. Upon clicking the profile image, i had to wait another 5 minutes of unresponsiveness for even the desktop background to display. Rebooted 3-4 times, still happened, booted in safe mode, (which is how i'm writing this) and initially thought it was msmpeng.exe that was causing me issues, so i removed mse once i finally managed to get it going in normal mode. I thought the problem was fixed when i rebooted, and i had about 4-5 minutes of normal speeds before it slowed right down and became unresponsive.

When the computer is running, the actual computer itself sounds fine (hard disk is chattering away) but when going slow and unresponsive it only makes noises every 1-2 seconds, if that makes any sense, as if it's under a really heavy load. Hard to tell because i cant open anything. Ran a system restore, didn't do anything. I need help soon! I suspect a driver issue, but i'm just speculating. Specs: windows 7 home premium 64 bit 6gig ddr3 ram i7-860 cpu ati 5770 gpu

Cannot Kill A Hanging Process

The avast! Antivirus program suddenly stopped working. I tried to kill the process with the task manager and pskill, but had no success as access was denied. (I'm sys admin) there has been no new software or hardware added recently to the system. When i restart the pc, same problem occurs again. I didn't find any way to get rid of the avast.exe file or the entire program folder altogether. Tnx for any suggestions on how to kill or get rid of the avast application. Programs you are having problems with error messages recent changes you made to your computer what you have already tried to fix the problem.

Process Srrstr.dll

I have a problem with a rundll32.exe process srrstr.dll in task manager. From what i have found out this has to do with creating a restore point. This process will run forever until i stop it through task manager. I also have another problem that occurred around the same time. My external hard drive that i use as a backup is not showing my backups since this started. I believe that a backup might have been interrupted. Don't know if that could have caused all of this.

I had a screenshot but i cannot seem to paste it in here so i will type it out:

In task manager -> processes
"Image name" = rundll32.exe
"User name" = system
"Command line" = c:windowssystem32undll32.exe/d srrstr.dll, executescheduledsppcreation
"Description" = windows host process (rundll32)

I am running windows 7 pro 64 bit build 7600 v6. 1
Amd phenom ii 955 processor
Asus m4a785td-v evo mobo
4gb gskill ram
2 wd black 640gb hard drives & 1 external wd black 750gb hd as a backup

Raid 10 Array Process

I'm switching from xp to win 7 pro 64bit - i previously set raid 10 so have experience. This was done using f6 floppy on clean install xp pro 32bit with intel ich9r driver. I am going to do a clean install with win7 pro 64bit - i have read that in win 7 you don't need to use the same process but i am unclear what exactly occurs in the install process for win 7 - will win 7 simply recognize and install the correct drivers - or do i need to have the intel 64 bit matrix drivers ready on flash drive etc. Please confirm the process?

Ps this is hardware raid not software

Not Enough Storage Is Available To Process This Command

I got a problem when i installed windows 7. I have an aplicattion that works fine on xp and vista too (i had to disable uac to install my personal aplication), but it doesn't work on 7. I tried the new compatibility sistem and got a new failure. When i run .exe file it goes fine until copy the new files to a temp directory, suddenly a box appears saying "not enough storage is available to process this command". I have about 280gb of free space on hd and 2 gb ram, what should i do?

Not Enough Storage To Process Command

I have major problem trying to install a new wlan pci card. When i first inserted it into the pc i figured the pnp would take care of everything but no so i installed it manually from the cd, this didn't work either so i tried to install it using a driver from the manufacturers website. The installation finishes and everything but windows still goes to look for drivers and when it doesn't find any i go to look in the device manager and i get the following error code:the drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28) (but they are)not enough storage is available to process this command.

To find a driver for this device, click update driver. I have about 2, 5gig ram free and about 590 gig of disk space free so that can't be it right?The things i have tried are:running the setup file as administrator, performing a disk cleanup, creating a new account with administrator acces, "telling" windows installer where to find the driver installer. Nothing works. Doe's anyone have any good ideas?

Settings.ini Is Being Used By Another Process

My gadgets aren't working, neither is firefox. I have a problem with my sidebar, as-well, as a lot of others have on this forum and a lot of others. Every time i start up my computer this message is shown. I tried a clean boot and that took care of the error message, but when i tried running the sidebar it popped up. Besides that my firefox, keeps claiming that another firefox is already running which, from my point of view, doesn't make any sense.

This seems to have started after i tried connecting windows media center to my xbox 360 and there was an error. In searching the internet, i have found that quite a few people have posted this kind of problem, several after a snafu in setting up their xbox 360 for media center, but there seem to be no answers to be found.

Dual Boot - 1 Xp And 3 Win 7 Boot Choices

I've installed win 7 on my d drive, with win xp still on c, with the idea of having a dual boot system. Due to installation problems, i now show the xp boot choice, and 3 win 7 boot choices, with only the most recent valid. How do i purge the b. Boot.ini doesn't appear to be relevant. Win 7 utility boot rewriter program to re-point boot to ntldr will wipe out all pointers to win 7 for booting, but comes back with an extra win 7 pointer, the next time i load win 7.

New Sata Boot Drive Wont Boot

I have a new 2t sata drive (seagate). It took about 5 days of research to finally get my computer to see it. I used seagate's disk wizard to clone my older drive (ide). The sata drive was supposed to become the c: drive. Disk management does label it as the c drive but in "computer" it sees it as f:i disconnected my older drive and when i booted up the bios kept looking for the ide drive. Although the motherboard has sata built in, there seems to be no way to tell the bios that i want the sata drive to be the primary boot drive.

Also with the original drive disconnected i get a "ntldr not found. Press control-alt-delete to restart. "I believe mybios is the problem. I have flashed it with the newest bios i could find, (dates from 2005) but no sata adjustments in the bios. How can i make the bios know that i want the sata drive to be the primary boot drive?

Or is there a way to trick the bios into thinking that it is an ide drive? As it is, the computer is recognizing the sata drive as a scsi drive. I read somewhere that this is not a problem. In summary, i want my system to boot from the sata drive. I would like to reformat the original drive.

Boot Problem - No Boot Device Found

Each time i start up the system the boot file cannot be found. I select the "repair start up" option and it completes it successfully with following detail: root cause found: the partition table does not have a valid system partition. Repair action: partition table repair.completion successfully. After this the system will start up. As mentioned, i have to do this at every start up, so i'm wondering why this partition table disappears when i shut down the desktop. I should mention that this problem started at the time i downloaded and installed the true image backup software.

The installation could not complete and one possible solution to the problem was to stop the antivirus program. At that moment i noticed that the avast antivirus was hanging and i was not able to kill the process. So i restarted the system, using f8 to get the safe start option so that i was able to uninstall the antivirus program. I then tried to install another antivirus application and when installation was almost finished got the message that it was unable to complete installation. I tried to install another backup solution (paragon), but also this one failed. On the other hand, i was able to install the firefox browser.

Process Identifier (pid) 4024

Upon boot up of my desktop computer an error message shows ' the desktop colour scheme ' has been changed to windows basic because of qttask.exe ie. Apple computer inc program. My computer has an intel processor with no apple programs! I have carried out windows explorer and control panel searches without success of finding such a program. It then follows to say that windows home premium colour scheme will return when the apple program has been uninstalled.

Any suggestions to stop this error message appearing everytime i boot up would be much appreciated and my computer running normally with the windows 7 home premium o. S installed. For information : my windows 7 o. S was a clean install and not a upgrade.

Computer Start Up Process Never Finishes

I have a 64 bit computer i recently updated from vista to windows 7. I did the compatibility search, and ever thing was supposedly ok to go. I have had only 1 problem- if i shut down my computer, when i turn it back on, i get all the way to the desktop, and get the "busy" signal. Forever. I can't click on anything. My only option is to pull the plug. The way i get my computer started is to start in safe mode, and then restart, then it starts just fine. Any suggestions?

Cannot End Process On Gaming Programs

I recently installed windows 7, and previously used windows xp. I play a game called asda story, currently floundering between beta and live. My problem is that when it bugs out and freezes, and i go to desktop to shut down the program, in windows xp i hit end process and it shut it down immediately. In windows 7 it says "cannot end process" and won't shut down the program. It won't shut it down from either programs or process tabs in the task manager. This has also happened occasionally in fallout 3 when that game freezes up. I bring up task manager and it won't let me shut down the game. No matter what the process is, if i hit "end process" it should end the process. Why doesn't this work in windows 7 sometimes?

How To Disable Process Wlcomm.exe?

I need to lighten the load off my lower end e5200 processor. Wlcomm.exe seems to use quite a bit of memory. It is my understanding wlcomm.exe is part of the "windows live contact". http://searchtasks. Answersthatwork.com/tasklist.php?File=wlcomm we do use "windows live mail". How can  prevent wlcomm.exe from starting up when i boot windows?I did uninstall windows live messenger since wlcomm.exe has something to do with the program. However, whenever i boot window's live mail, the process starts again.

Running Explorer As A Separate Process

Under windows xp we login to our workstations as a basic user and then launch a command prompt with administrator privileges using runas. This allows us to launch things like aduc or exchange system manager as our admin account.

Now i am in the process of creating an image and setting up security for windows 7. When attempting to do the same thing i get the message "windows cannot access the specified device, path or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item. ". The account that the cmd prompt is running as is an admini account that is in the local as well as domain admin groups. So i dont see that this could be a permissions issue.

Also we have set the registry key hkcusoftwaremicrosoftwindowscurrent versionexploreradvancedseperateprocess = 1.

Windows Network - Not Enough Storage Available To Process Command

Cannot connect to wireless external drive - "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" error and system running slow after update. I just updated my laptop to windows 7 and am having a few problems. One - everything seems to be running slower (i thought it was supposed to be faster!). More problematic is the fact that i can't access my external hard drive which is networked. It shows it, but when i click on it (it's listed as a z drive), the error "microsoft windows network: not enough storage is available to process this command" shows.

I installed win7 on my husband's laptop the other day with no troubles. His is able to still access the networked drive without a problem and is running great. So great, i went and got it for my laptop. My husband's laptop is running the 64 version of home premium and mine the 32. I used upgrade advisor and fallowed all the recommendations it gave. Including uninstalling itunes. I saved my itunes files to the external drive and can't access them.

I have a hp pavillion dv6000 running webroot security suite.

Dvd Maker Problem During The Burn Process

I have a sony dvd camcorder (mini disc)and sony vegas movie studio 6 software. Since getting a new laptop with windows 7 i've been having problems with vegas movie studio (i think it may not be fully compatible with windows 7). But it does manage to render my videos to a recognizable format (mpg) so i turned to windows dvd maker, which looks like a great and simple program to use initially. But like many messages on this forum i too had a problem during the burn process - mine only gets to approx. 4% and then comes up with an error message (but the error message displays no detail). What can i do? Is there an alternative? Can i burn a mini disc onto a dvd-r for example? Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.

System Process Locking External Hdd

I have a seagate freeagent desktop 750gb external hdd connected via usb port. When i connect the device to windows, it is immediately locked by a system process that i cannot shutdown. I ran some sys-internals tools and found the culprit.

C:>handle h:

Handle v3. 2
Copyright (c) 1997-2006 mark russinovich
Sysinternals -

System pid: 4 1c8:
H:$extend$rmmetadata$txflog$txflogcontainer00000000000000000001

System pid: 4 288: h:$extend$rmmetadata$txf

I am aware that these files are part of transactional ntfs system which was present in vista, im unsure if win 7 has this same feature or an updated version.

I cannot delete these files since they are protected operating system files, i cannot unlock the process locking them so how am i supposed to safely eject my external drive. I have another external drive, a small wd passport which does not get locked by windows in the same manner therefore i have concluded that these system files on my external are remnants of vista (my previous os). My wd passport was never connected to a computer running vista.

Please do not tell me to format my drive because it's filled with data i cannot backup to an alternative right now. This is beyond infuriating, i have been trying to solve this issue on my own for days trying numerous methods.
