Windows OS Blackscreen / Failing to load 11 drivers...

By ComputerStryfe

  1. Hi all.

    I have an ABS laptop with the following specs:

    Pentium 4 3.2 Ghz
    Microsoft XP Home Edition
    1.00 GB of RAM
    60 GB HD Space at 7200 rpm
    Video Card: ATI Radeon 9600 Mobile
    etc. and so forth

    Anyways, I am having major computer trouble. Here's the deal:

    Upon startup, the system either freezes at the "Windows XP" logo, or proceeds to bring me to the login screen; after I enter my login information, I can see my icons and background for about a split-second before the screen goes black. I can hear the rest of the loading process finish in the background, leading me to believe it's a display screen problem...

    Starting up the computer in safe mode, I opened the event viewer to see what the hell was going on. There were several (and by several, I mean nine or ten) error logs in a row, the most pertinent being:

    - A bunch of individual drivers failed to load because a "device attached to the system is not functioning" (Event ID: 7001)

    - The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
    (Event ID: 7026)

    System Restore was turned off in order to solve an earlier problem that I had awhile back, so that isn't really an option. Disk Check reads no errors on any of the system parts (as usual :p). Any other measures I should try? Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks a bunch.

    Go here http://www.eventid.net/search.asp
    and enter the Event _D (7001 / 70026 / etc.) PLUS the Source as specified in your event-log.
    Looks like your Networking is not installed properly.

    That sounds like you have a corrupted OS install. I would look at wiping and reinstalling. If that does not work, and you get the same symptoms, or the install does not complete, then that may point towards hardware problems such as faulty motherboard. Most likely, however, these problems are due to file corruption. You could try a repair by booting from your Windows CD and selecting repair options.
