I have a pc that on the boot screen, it loads from some time and then a blue screen with a lot of words come and disappear in a split of a second.Then it will restart by it self. Before the boot screen a the screen appears where it tells you "we apologize for the inconvenience......." Always the same screen when the pc is not turned off properly.
  • Safe Mode
  • Safe mode with network
  • and others....
  • Start Windows normally
I choose Start windows normally.

It keeps restarting again and again.

What can i do? If the UBCD (Ultimate Boot CD) helps i own it.

Thanks

You can try the following:

When booting hit f8 to enter Windows advanced options, scroll down and choose Disable Automatic Restart On System Failure.

If that works, we can hopefully get an error message which will provide something to go on.

while you are booting... continually tap the F8 key, and try Last Known Good Configuration.


then i would pull and attach 3 or 4 of the most recent files in this folder

C:\WINDOWS\Minidump


also, it wouldnt be a bad idea to go ahead and run a memory test.

FWIW: These types of errors can seldom be pinned down, IMO. There are any number of causes/reasons and system events which will trigger these.

Even though the generic data indicates it's a driver problem...there are all sorts of drivers in an XP system. Microsoft drivers, hardware drivers, firewall drivers, AV drivers, etc...I think you get the picture.

This Stop error message usually occurs during installation when there was an attempt in kernel mode to touch pageable memory at too high a process internal request level (IRQL). Typically, this error occurs when a driver uses an incorrect memory address. Other possible causes of this error include an incompatible device driver, a general hardware problem, or incompatible software.

Most likely bad memory.

However if you've tried booting in safemode and it doesn't work you can always pop your xp cd in and try and repair it.

I suspect that I normally attempt a repair install...then a clean one, if that fails.

As I said, the potential causes are varied...and there is no guarantee that you will ever arrive at the right one.

Obvious things to check: RAM.

The fact that you cannot boot into XP...pretty much eliminates anything more than a RAM diagnostic and a hard drive diagnostic.

If it were me, I always try attaching the drive to another system...running chkdsk /r...and then trying to boot it again.

Others here have more diagnostic techniques/procedures than I do, wait for more suggestions.

But...I would not be overly optimistic that there IS "an answer."

Actually, i think it was the RAM, cause i removed them and changed their position. When i turned the pc on, it booted normally. I didnt thought that was the RAM, anyway thanks all for solving this problem :D
