About a month ago, my computer was working fine, until one day I woke up and I received this message (The last attempt to restart the system from its previous location failed) with a black screen, and at this point, my laptop computer would freeze up and I would not be able to select either of the two options, so I would restart the computer, and the same message would come up. After a couple of weeks of frustration, I luckily got into my computer (by pressing del rapidly while the computer was loading up). I ran MalwareBytes and AviraAntivirus, and no problems showed up. Eventually after some research, I concluded that it was my hibernation mode, so I disabled hibernation mode, and I have not received that message again.
However, after either rebooting or shutting down my computer, I would get three messages at different times at the start up, with all having involving lsass.exe
- 1) insufficient system resources exist to complete the API
- 2) lsass.exe not enough quota “with "not enough virtual memory
- 3) Not enough Virtual Memory or paging file quota available to complete this operation
So I finally got into windows and after some research, I have come to the conclusion that the lsass.exe error messages were not the Sasser worm, since the file was in c:/Windows/System32 and no viruses were found on my computer. I have ran registry booster 2009, to try to fix the solution, but the problem still has occurred. At this point, I tried replacing my lsass.exe file using my windows XP cd (which worked because windows was working) by following Lsass.exe, but then whenever I restarted or shutdown the computer, I now got the lsass.exe - operation failed message. Once again, I am sometimes able to enter windows without getting any of these messages by rapidly pressing F3, F8, or Del, and when I hear a continuous beeping noise, I know that I will be able to either get into my login screen for windows, or at the safe mode screen, I am able to choose last known configuration.
Once again I got in to windows and I went to system properties, start up and recovery, system failure, and unchecked automatically restart, so I would be able to see the blue screen of death whenever there is any error at start up to see what the problem really is. Well the blue screen of death comes up when I am lucky enough to be able to select safe mode, but when safe mode tries to load up, I get this error message on the blue screen " 0x0000007B (0xF78AA524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) ". And this is the point where I am at. I am currently on the damaged computer, and I am hesitant to shut it down or restart it, because I know that I will once again get the lsass.exe message, or if I try to get into safe mode, I will get the same message on the blue screen of death.
I am not sure if this problem is suppose to be in this forum, or in a virus/malware forum, and I apologize if it is in the wrong place and I ask if you could move it to where it belongs. Also, if this post is too long, I am sorry again. I just want to be as detailed as I can to help out the situation. Also, FYI, I am not that technically sophisticated when it comes to computers so be easy
Thanks in advance
