  1. help! i need help as well. there's this blue error screen everytime windows starts and i think this is due to install a pirated online dvd pc game named perfect world. ah, as far as i remember and i am certain about this, i was asked to install first alcohol 120% from the dvd to my computer and then install the rest later. after i installed it, my pc started the blue error already. the blue screen is so fast that you can't read the entire of it but good think i photoed it in my cam. here's the statement:

    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

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

    Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

    Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates, disable BIOS memory option such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use Safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe mode.

    Technical Informations:

    *** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xc0000005, 0x81c908A2,0xAB449A68,0xAB449764)

    Collecting data for crash dump...
    Initializing disk for crash dump...
    Beginning dump of physical memory.
    Dumping physical memory to disk: 100

    .......(this a part here that my cam didn't catch cause it's so fast.)

    by the way, it won't go to safe mode cause everytime i select safe mode, before it reaches to the windows, this error flash out again.


    Help! what should i do about this? i really need my computer because i hav some research to do. thanks for the help.

    Try going to safe mode command prompt only

    If you are able to get to the command prompt (black screen)
    Then type:
    chkdsk /r

    By the way, this is chkdsk<space><forward slash>r

    Reply back if it worked

    Otherwise you may need to Repair Windows:

    If possible, take a look in C:\Windows\Minidump and zip up a bunch of your latest .dmp files, then attach them to your next post in this thread.

    Well, then, attempt a repair installation as Kimsland suggests. Otherwise attach your HDD to another PC as a Secondary/Slave device or use Knoppix to access your data. Then, navigate to C:\Windows\Minidump and transfer the .dmp files to another storage device. Zip and attach them.

    *Edit*

    I just friggen realized you have two identical threads going. http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic103005.html

    paolo, this is what i did to my pc. Press F8 repeatedly during POST. This will lead you to Windows Advanced options Menu. and then choose safe mode. If it won't work, go to restore last known good configuration option. Note, in doing this, restart your pc, press F8 in order to load the advanced options.
