Hi all,

My computer has recently crashed on startup, and was opened up in the "F8" mode (the mode where it gives you the option to boot in safe mode or start windows normally etc..) and the only recent software change I have was my dad's friend recently fixed my printer without the drivers and when he fixed it, a countdown window came up stating that computer is going to crash/restart in 60 seconds. He later fixed this problem but that is the only thing i can think of that might of caused this crash at startup. This may not be a big problem but I would like it to be solved so i can fix the problem now. I'm not very good with computers so explain how to fix my problem step by step please.

Here are my spec:
HP Pavilion a1330n
MS XP SP2
Intel Pentium processor 2.8 GHz
1 GIG RAM
Geforce 8600 GT


Thanks in advance.

Hello.

Is the message more like "Warning, something has been stopped or couldn't start and Windows needs to shutdown" and shows a countdown? If you are the Admin, you can stop the shutdown my typing shutdown -a into your run box.

Anyways, you will need to look in the event viewer to find the error that is causing the crash. You can see a guide HERE.

My computer has recently crashed on startup, and was opened up in the "F8" mode (the mode where it gives you the option to boot in safe mode or start windows normally etc..)

I'm not sure what you are trying to relate here... could you explain more clearly what it had to do with the crash?

With Regards,
The Panda

Hi Panda, and thank you for replying so quickly.

Yes, that was the message. What I meant was that when my computer crashed and it booted up; it booted up into the black window that opens up when you press "F8". The window that states "Safe Mode with Networking" "Run windows normally" "Safe Mode without Networking".

I only found errors in Security for April 24th around the time of my crash.

This is for Security
I found 3 around the time my computer crashed
----------------------------------------------------------------
Error 4/24/2008 12:01:03 AM Service Control Manager None 7026

Error 4/24/2008 2:34:58 PM Service Control Manager None 7026 N/A OWNER-C6497BDB5

Error 4/24/2008 3:39:09 PM Service Control Manager None 7026 N/A OWNER-C6497BDB5

I hope i followed your instructions right
Thanks!

Hello again.

Those might be the errors we are looking for. However, could you please copy paste the entire error? Just the name isn't enough to diagnose the problem.

By the way, how often are these crashes happening? Do you see a pattern of errors each time it happens?

With Regards,
The Panda
