Flash Drive Only Works In Safe Mode


I have an 8gb pny flash drive that works in windows vista and the safe mode in windows 7. It will not work in the full windows 7 mode. Ll the other flash drives that i have work fine in windows 7 full mode. When i boot the drive up in full windows, the system takes a long time to id the device. Then if it does id it, it shows that the disk is full. In the disk management process the flash drive as shown with "no media". The drivers are all shown as identical for all my flash drives and they work fine, this one won't work. I have updated the chip set and bios of the motherboard (gigabyte ga-ma785gm-us2h) with the latest drivers and updates.

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. )

Freezes And Works In Safe Mode Only

Acer aspire 7740-6656 laptop less than 6 mos old windows 7 home premium 64 bit intel core i5-430m processor w/4 gb ddr3 1066 sd ram, & hd on-board graphics problem: currently only run windows in safe mode:when run in normal mode windows runs for 5 min, then freezes which prevents anything from working - keyboard, touchpad, even the screen freezes. For instance if windows is in the process of upgrading as it was today the install window freezes. All that can be done is to power off machine and reboot into safe mode - note: safe mode networking does not work either.

Have tried system restore in safe mode with success of taking system back but it does not resolve the problem. Acer ts is no help, they are useless and all windows diagnostics show no hardware or software issues when run in safe mode. Have done several re-installs of the os, drivers, etc. From the hidden partition on the hard drive with no resolution and there are no error messages generated when the system locks up.

Usb Flash Drive Works With Xp But Not With Win 7

I am having a problem only with an ocz rally2 512mb usb flash drive in my desktop machine (all of my other flash drives work fine). This flash drive works in winxp 32bit but not in windows 7 32-bit on same pc. This flash drive also works on windows 7 32bit on my laptop. When i plug this flash drive in with windows 7 running, the drive is given an unique drive letter but i can not access the contents. I have upgraded my chipset and deleted all of the usb drives in the device manager but after rebooting this drive still does not work.

Unable To Do Safe Mode

First of all. There's no virus in my computer so this is not caused by virus. Then the problem is = when i try to go to safe mode. After load all the driver, then my computer restart, so i start windows normally then i go to msconfig.exe, then i checked the 'safe boot' . Then i restart my pc, and automatically go to safe mode, unfortunately when loading all the drivers, my computer restart again. Because off i checked 'safe boot' in msconfig so when the computer starts, it will always chosse safe mode. So my computer is restart over and over again. How to uncheck the safe boot in msconfig without get into windows. ? How to start windows normally. ? How to resolve this problem without re-install my computer. ? Now i'm online from linux boot cd.

Windows 7 enterprise build 7100
2gb ram
3hz processor
Norton 360 v4
Start up repair has no efect, system restore no efect.

Black Screen Safe Mode

Forgot to add: tried the "prevx 3. 0" solution. Message: would you like to reset the windows shell to correct a black screen on bootup and disable some malware infections? Answered yes. Message: prevx has reset the windows shell. Please reboot your computer for the changes to take effect. Rebooted in normal mode – starting windows then windows 7 ultimate screen. Entered password –got welcome screen. Same message: entry point not found. Clicked ok – welcome screen again then nothing – same black screen! Also, on my black screen is says safe mode in all 4 corners and build 7600.
 
Submitting again - hopefully without all the "junk" on the post - what am i doing wrong?

Unable To Boot Even In Safe Mode

I have windows xp home edition. My pc was working ok last night although running extremely slow. Tried to start today but it gave me the following message: "a problem has been detected and window has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmenting, backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration, check for any updated drivers. Run chkdsk /f to check hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer. If you need to use safe mode, restart your computer, press f8 to select advanced startup options, and then select safe mode.

Technical information:

Stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x81b4ede8, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000). "

I cannot start in any of the safe modes, as it keeps returning to the blue screen!

Can't Get To Safe Mode - Repair Loop

I have a win 7 64 bit pc that's i'm having an odd issue with. The system will boot and load windows normally, but i can't get to safe mode. When i hit f8, i get the options for safe mode and repair, etc. , But if i try safe mode it loads some stuff, then just stops and a get a black screen with "safe mode" in all 4 corners, a mouse, but nothing else. When i hit "repair" it gets stuck in a repair loop. I've read the tutorial on how to get out of that loop, but was wondering if that's what i should try or if there's some other problem. I'll need to ask a question later about why i need to get to "safe mode" but for now, anyone help on this issue?

Safe Remove Usb Flash Memory Restarts Computer

While using different (manufacturers) usb flash drives on this computer from time to time my computer
Restarts itself while "safe remove" is being performed. Also, note that the same thing happens (again, sometime!) When i physically unplug the usb drive. Same usbs on different xp machines. No problems! Where do i need to look for a solution to this. I've noticed other people having the same problem as well (googled it).

Win 7 Only Running Programs In Safe Mode

I got my computer about a week ago. Things seemed to work fine the first start-up, and then i had to restart in order to install some updates. After the restart (which took somewhere around 4 hours) i found that several programs will not open, i.e. Internet explorer, media player, norton antivirus. I attempt to open them, the 'loading' icon appears next to the cursor, and then nothing happens. All of these programs came pre-installed, as this is a new computer.

However, these programs do run in safe mode. Prior to the restart, i had installed network magic 5. 1 and attempted to install webroot antivirus. I have since uninstalled these programs, but the problem continues. I have made no other changes to the computer. I've also tried backing up the computer but this has not worked either. I'm afraid i know very little about computers and have no idea what i should do. Any advice would be very welcome.

Activate Administrator Account In Safe Mode

How to activate administrator account in safe mode? I have two accounts "user1" ("user" level and i know this password) and "admin1" ("admin" level)accounts. Built-in administrator account has a password (i know this password) but it's not active. I changed my admin1 password and now i can't remember it. I have tried to use built-in administrator account by "safe mode" but it doesn't shows up in the list of users (to log in safe mode)? I logged in as a user1 account with cmd prompt. I typed "net user administrator /active:yes" but os says "system error 5 has occurred. Access is denied". How i can use built-in administrator account (since i know that password) when it's not activated?

Win 7 Wont Start, Even In Safe Mode

When i went to turn on my gateway laptop this morning, it wouldn't start up. I have windows 7, and have been running on it fine for about four months. When i turn the computer on, it shows the "windows is starting" screen, but then it goes to a black screen with just the cursor, sits there for a few minutes, then restarts again. Then i tried running in safe mode (going to the boot menu, selecting "safe mode") and ran into the same problem: it would go to a black screen with the cursor, hold there, then restart again. Is this a virus? Is there any way for me to get to system restore from the boot menu? I can still access the bios set-up, but i don't know what i can do from there to help.

Win 7 Is Reverting To A Safe Mode State

Im using windows 7 home premium 64-bit. I have been using it for over a month, and when i switched my computer on 3 days ago, all my setting had gone and replaced by windows 7 basic safe mode type settings. No sound, no virus program (norton 360 4. 0) , no internet settings, there was no system restore information so i couldn't restore, i installed malewarebytes and did a scan and found nothing, so i then re set all my settings and re installed ie, my virus programm, and all other basic settings and programs . Everything worked fine for the rest of the day with a few restars etc then the next day i turned it on and i was back to basic with nothing installed :-(only thing i can think of is possible norton conflict as this was only installed a few days prior to problems? Please help i've no idea why this is happening

Cannot Boot In Safe Mode Or Command Prompt

Not sure what the problem is but every mode i try booting in gets a black screen and the brightness of the screen is dimmer however i do get a mouse pointer that i can move around freely. I have an assumption that its a video error and regucure probably messed something up while i was trying to repair broken registry. Currently in kuwait by the way and both safe mode and command prompt is the same way the only thing i seem to be able to use is the f2 setup screen which does not seem to help at all either resetted the settings to default but no progress. Wish i could find a way to fix this without taking cash from my pocket or sending it to a place to reset it to factory settings.

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.

Pc Only Starts Up In Safe Mode After Running Scan Disk

I was running scan disk to attempt to speed up my son's computer. I also got rid of some files that he had on it. The files were for his old apple ipod and he doesn't use it anymore. So i figured it couldn't hurt anything. The file were "safari", "bonjour", and some other apple files. I also removed a program for my old samsung camera. I tried to do a system restore from before i removed these programs/drivers. But that didn't work even though it said the restore was successful. I am at a lose of what to do and school is just starting. I hope he don't need it soon. Can anyone help? Thank you for you time and any help you may be able to give.

Netbook Cannot Start - Safe Mode Stops At Classpnp.sys

My msi u130 windows 7 starter does not start, merely gets to the loading screen (where you see the green flash going above the words microsoft corporation). Launch startup repair shows a white bar and the message windows is loading files before going to the loading screen. Launching os recovery does the same as above. Using safe mode hangs at 'classpnp.sys'. A variety of other safe mode options stop at 'classpnp.sys'.

I downloaded the windows 7 recovery disk iso and put it on a usb. After some problem with "ntldr is missing press ctrl alt del to restart" downloaded bootsect.exe, used that, then got a message windows is loading files and a white loading which, which, when complete, put me back tot he normal windows loading screen, zero other activity. Have tried to boot to a linux system off a usb to replace the classpnp.sys file with one i found on this xp machine, but can't get linux to start off the usb. So any ideas? With my main laptop with my wife i desperately need this netbook working, not least because it has office 2007 on it.

Crashes And Debugging - Black Screen After Login, Safe Mode Ok

My laptop seems to hang after the login screen, the screen either goes completely black or sometimes shows the desktop picture and an empty taskbar, but i am unable to do anything such as task manager. Leaving the system running for 10-15 minutes after trying ctrl-alt-del will bring up some error message, but i forget what it said, i'll try to get it again.

I can get into safe mode just fine, and ran the sf diagnostic tool from there, i have attached the files it created as requested. The laptop hung on me on shutdown before this issue started and after waiting for 30 minutes for it to try to shut down normally it wasn't responding so i had to power it down. I'm thinking that might've fudged something up but i'm unsure if there were any windows updates queued at the time or not. I'm really unsure what to do at this point, there aren't any system restore points, i didn't remember turning it off but i must have at some point.

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

Cd/dvd Drive No Longer Works After Upgrade

I just installed my windows 7 upgrade and i have a problem. After the install (upgrade, not custom) my cd/dvd drive no longer works. I can't run anything! Software, movies, nothing! I've been on the phone with tekkies from microsoft and compaq most of the morning and they are about as clueless on this as i am. We went through everything we could think of concerning this problem and one of the techs said microsoft probably didn't think to update the driver software for windows 7. Is anybody else having this problem? I talked to the biggest nerds microsoft has to offer and they are stumped as well. Anybody?

Dual Boot Works But Drive Letters Don't Match

I took a 1 tb drive and split it into 2 primary partitions. I installed xp on partition c with an image. I installed win 7 on partition d from scratch.

The dual booting works fine. However, in win 7, the drive i installed win 7 on is listed as drive c. The drive i installed the xp image on is listed as drive d. The files for each, however, are listed on the original drive letters (xp on c and win 7 on d). It really gets confusing with i install a program in win 7. It claims it's installing the program on drive c but it's actually installing it on drive d.

Any idea what happened, or how to correct this? I've set up systems to dual boot in the past and never ran into this problem.

Bootable Flash Drive Or Hard Drive To Install Win 7

estimating windows 7 wim file sizes - ufd too small for image. I was trying to capture awim file for windows 7 to a bootable ufd, but the 16gb ufd was too small. I reran and directed the capture to a usb hard drive. Is there a tool to estimate the ufd size required? Is the fat32 format a constraint?Can i build a bootable usb hard drive and capture the image to it so that if i boot from the usb hd instead of the ufd? Can i install from a usb hard drive instead of the ufd? Then i would not be limited to the usb size of 16gb or 32gb.

Win 7 Recognize Flash Drive As Disk Drive

Windows 7 will not recognize flash drive, sees it as disk drive. How do i get win 7 to recognize my flash drive for what it is and allow me to use it? Whenever i try to open it in my computer it tells me there is no disc in the drive. Disk manager list it as a usb drive. Win 7 says flash drive is a disk drive in my computer. Device manager lists it as a usb flash drive but lists it under disk drive.

Sync Playlist To Flash Drive

Is there a way to sync a play list to a flash drive, they play that play list on another pc using wmp-12? When i sync a play list to a flash drive, the play list is not carried with it. Just copying the play lists to a matching folder on the flash drive does not seem to work. It would also be nice to have an option to carry album art with the sync too.

Bsod When I Plug Flash Drive In

On three different windows 7 computers (two of the computers the hard drives were wiped clean of xp by windows 7 home premium upgrade 32-bit, the other a new laptop shipped with windows 7 home premium 64-bit pre-installed) when i plug either of the two flash drives i have, sometimes i will get a bsod for a couple seconds and then it reboots. Not even half the time, but i always wonder each time i put one in, will it happen this time?  If i leave the flash drive in while it reboots, there is no problem using it once i get back to the desktop. I uploaded the 3 mindumps that are on this computer to http://tinyurl.com/ye4zcm2 .

I know the file 020410-28392-01.dmp is from when i plugged a flash drive in, but the other two probably were too, so i uploaded all three. I tried using the debugging tools from http://support.microsoft.com/kb/315263 but either it's not working right because i couldn't find a c:windowsi386 folder and didn't find i386 on the windows 7 dvd (though i suppose there's one on the xp disk) or i just don't get what it's telling me.
