Sorry guys I'm new here and I don't know much about computers so I decided to post this question here in General Chat.


Well this is the problem:

the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application. (it pops up twice)

I've researched this topic on Google and I have noticed a lot of other people have had the same problem but I think this is a special case.


See, whenever I turn on my laptop on everything goes well and even gives me the option of selecting F2 to to configure things on the computer. But when I get to the main page where I'm supposed to log in this message pops up:

the application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005). Click on OK to terminate the application.

So then I try to click Ctrl, Alt, and Del to open up the task menu but nothing happens. I noticed the keys are not unresponsive because when I click Caps Lock the little light flashes on.

So please can somebody help me out with this huge problem, or is my laptop over and done with?


EDIT: Moved to a more appropriate forum
We'll just assume XP-MG

I would prefer to move this topic to the OS forum that it relates to. Would you please let us know?

I don't know, whats the OS? I am not familiar with Windows 7 or much of Vista...... But getting this question in the right forum helps immensely getting a reply from our many visitors.

This fix seems to work well for some

If you are running Windows XP... click Ctrl+Alt+Delete to bring up the Windows Task Manager... then go to File and select New Task (Run...)

Type in the search box:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Restore\rstrui.exe

click OK and this should bring you to the System Restore program that Windows XP has built into it. Then just follow the steps to restore your computer to how it was at an earlier time before the problem. Then just reboot your computer and it should be fine and still have all your files, folders, and programs intact

Yeah the problem is that when I click the Task Bar combination, the Task Bar doesn't come up. The buttons work but it just doesn't seem to work.

As has been said, knowing more about your system will help a lot.

This seems to be a fairly common problem, but there is a lot of info here -

Can you press F8 repeatedly as your system boots up to get into Safe Mode and do a System Restore to an earlier date, or choose Last Known Good Configuration?

Well here's a video of the situation:


I also heard that it's possible to use a recovery disc to erase all of the memory of the laptop and leave it brand new like when I took it out of the box. Do you guys know how to do that?
