i have a dell inspiron n 5010 with i3 and 8 giga of ram.
i have upgraded it to win8 from win7 few months ago
2/3 days ago i ve got to reboot the pc(and i ve seen there was some updates from win installed during the reboot),since then the pc is keeping giving me repeated bsod in loop,the first bsod is showing acpi.sys is corrupted or missing with error 0xc0000221.
it doesnt let me go to safe mode while trying safe mode with networking it s giving me another bsod with memory management and rebooting again with another bsod and so on
anyone have a solution for this?
it s seems the automatic repair doesnt work ,as after another reboot it s coming back to acpi.sys error
You can stop the test either when seven passes complete or there are errors detected during the test. Following video will give you a better idea about the test.
B. After verifying whether first module is faulty or not, unplug it and plug the second module to the same slot. Repeat the test. If you are getting errors on only one module, that one will be faulty. Keep the faulty module unplugged and try to boot the system.
Run hard disk manufacturer's diagnostic test.
Please verify the health condition of your hard drive by running Manufacturer's diagnostic tools (bootable CD )
Yes, it will take a long time to complete. Instead of running Memtest86+, you can try to boot with only one module plugged at a time. That is remove either one of the module and try to boot. If failed, try the second module. If you found one particular module to be faulty, run Memtest on it to confirm.
If they are only 6 months old, they will be still under warranty. You can replace it under RMA (Return Material Authorization ). Before send the faulty module for replacement, make sure the other module is fine. Boot the system with only the good module plugged in and play some high definition movies. If the system is stable, that module will be fine.
As i said earlier in my previous post, you are facing multiple hardware failures. You can replace the memory modules under warranty but you need to buy a new hard disk. Bad sectors in the surface are not repairable. They are physical damage happens to the storage area of the hard drive. Even one bad sector means the drive need to be replaced.
i ve used hdd regenerator to repair most of the errors,while testing again with wd lifegaurd diagnostics for windows,it showing now repairable errors,but there is a message also wich is advising to backup because the repaired sectors will erase anything on it.
Trying to repair bad sectors on a hard drive is waste of time (personal experience ). If you are some how managed to repair all the bad sectors, in a near future bad sectors will reappear again. You will ended up in losing all the data. Since you can access the data now, backup them to an external medium (USB HDD, DVD etc ) and replace the drive with a new one. That is what i recommends for your own good.
