Dell Inspiron 2105 :: BSOD Without Options At Boot
Jan 27, 2015
Here is my HW: Dell inspiron 15iR-2105 with Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bits
My wife said she just fell a sleep with her computer on, ok but now her comp won't boot at all.
Here is the history:
1) At first boot the next morning she was getting IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. I have tried all the options after pressing F8 without any success the comp kept on rebooting and showing the BSOD or 2 options start windows 7 normally or start windows 7 repair (recommended). When I select either of these I get the BSOD (IRQL....)
2) The command prompt was getting stuck on aswRvrt which I found out to be an avast file. 3) I wanted to secure my wife's data first so I removed the HDD used an USB adapter and connected to my computer and was able to get all of her data. I also was able to remove (so I think) avast from here comp by using www.avast.com/uninstall-utility and run it on her HDD. I also removed all avast driver in windows/system32/driver from her comp because after removing only the aswRvrt another avast driver was getting stuck (aswVmm)4) Now I still get the BSOD and when using command prompt, it gets stuck on classpnp5) I found that ALT + F9 would show me this:
Edit boot optionEdit windows boot option for: Windows 7Path:WindowsSystem32Winload.exePartition 1Hard Disk 9430081d
Press Enter To Sumbit
I do not know how to use this option so I just hit ENTER.
2 beeps I thought was a memory issue but the screen doesn't say anything about a memory problem. there are 3 options 1 boot to windows 2 boot options and the 3 I cant remember. option 2 and 3 may be out of order. I have looked in bios for memory test to turn it off but I don't see it. pressing F1 (first option) boots normally and system runs great as usual. 1 other thing, the battery light flashes red 4 times and then holds white for a second then cycles back to the flashing red. this all started at the same time. I tried to do a bios update but im already running the latest version so I get the window that says it wont be completed. the battery does seem to last a very long time as it usualy does, its a 9 cell battery.
I've been noticing whenever I run XP in boot camp I'll get the BSod much more often than running XP on a dedicated Windows machine. For example I got the BSoD the other day while just attempting to save my Word doc. I'll get BSoD for other weird reasons like switching the screen resolutions, closing windows, and opening simple programs. I never had problems like this with my old laptops. For some reason I think Apple is just doing this so users will think Windows OS are more prone to crashes.
I have a new dell latitude 6510 notebook and now i will install Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit again. When selected "Boot List Option" under bios settings i see legacy and uefi but i can´t "Add Boot Options" - Warning "File System not Found". Windows 7 Pro 32 Bit is installed and working under legacy but not working on uefi. When uefi selcted windows 7 pro 32 Bit is installed and when installation is finish can´t find bootable device.
In the past we've restrict the boot options on our laptops vis bios sequence to prevent unauthorised reimaging of machines. However I've just noticed our newest Latitude e6230 still list all the devices as available despite these settings. Screenshots attached.
I have my Ideapad y510p laptop and it is refusing to boot. Basically, I was simply restarting my computer and then it stopped working. The computer seemed to have been getting finicky lately and taking longer too boot prior to this issue, but that may just be me. When I press the power button the Lenovo logo pops up and the spinning thing starts. This spins for an extremely long time then a BSoD appears and the laptop reboots.
And for a split second the BSoD flashes "INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE" (the BSoD sits for a few seocnds then this message pops up for a very short amount of time, I had to film it and go frame by fram to figure out what it said) On the next boot cycle a little "Preparing Automatic Repair" pops up. This goes on for a long time too, and when it finishes it takes me to a blue screen asking for my keyboard layout. Upon selection I am greeted with an option to troubleshoot or turn off the PC. Troubleshoot then allow me to refresh my PC, reset my PC, and advanced options. The refresh option when selected states "The drive where Windows is installed is locked. Unlock the drive and try again." The reset option brings up a "Please Wait" then comes up with an error stating "Unable to reset your PC. A required drive partition is missing." Under the advanced options I am presented with an option to do a system restore, which errors out and tells me to specify which Windows installations to restore, an option to do a system image recover, which errors out giving me the error code 0x80070002, an option to do a startup repair, which then says that it could not repair my PC and nothing is listed under "Log file", an option to adjust my UEFI Firmware Settings, which just loads up the BIOS, and an option to load up the command prompt. The command prompt is where things start to get intresting.
I ran diskpart then list disk and list volume, list disk returned "There are no fixed disks to show" and list volume returned "There are no volumes." I proceeded to run chkdsk /r /f /x but that returned that the drive was write protected, which I am assuming is because I am running off the recovery x drive. I also ran sfc /scannow which stated that there are pending repairs and that I need to restart to fix them. So, after all this it would appear that my hard drive is not mounted or malfunctioning. However, in the BIOS the hard drive is listed, also I tried changing from AHCI to compatible and that yeilded no results. I then proceeded to simply try to use the novo button and do a system restore, however when I tried this it poped up a screen saying "Windows is loading files" and when the progressbar completed the computer reset and when back to the boot screen and put me back where I started.
I tried booting from a USB flash drive and a USB CD drive and both of them failed and just reset the computer and brought me back to the boot loop. I tried reseting the BIOS, pulling the power plug and battery and holding the power button for 20 seconds, and a BIOS update to v3.05 (I used the CMD prompt to open notepad then navigate to a folder that contained the BIOS update exe and updated the BIOS), and none of these worked. I then proceeded to pull the hard drive from the laptop and stick it in my desktop. I tried booting off this hard drive on my desktop, but this did not work. I was able to grab all my data from the drive and back it up on my desktop perfectly fine.
Also, when I loaded up disk management, I noticed another 350mb recovery partition. Shortly after getting the laptop I made a post on these forums asking about what all the partions on the primary hard drive and I included a picuture of the disk management (the thread with image can be seen here) and in that picture there is only one 350mb recovery, however, now there is two. Not sure if this is of any use or not, but I am just trying out be as through as possible. Also, I ran a chkdsk of the primary partition (c drive when on the laptop) when I had it in my desktop and that did not work any.
When changing the advance boot options in msconfig, I think I have found a bug. with the option of maximum memory selected, after the restart the computer will only read 3GB (when it should be 4GB). Also when going back in the advance menu of the boot tab, the maximum memory value is 0. (I also have no GUI boot selected, if that changes anything)
On restarting I was given two options: 1. Launch Startup Repair - Choosing option 1 gave me an error message HP Recovery window stating - Create file fail. On clicking Ok, it takes me to another screen (HP recovery manager window) stating Recovery not supported under current configuration, please enable accelearation option for intel Smart Technology and try again. When I click Ok the screen closes and the computer shuts off. 2. Start Windows Normally - Choosing Option 2 gets me back to the BSOD with the same error
Then I tapped on F8 while stating up. I was given a host of options: 1. Repair your computer - Error window (Windows Script Host) Script: X:Rita-toolStart.vbs; Line: 93; Char:14; Eror: The system cannot find the file specified; Code 80070002; Sourcenull). then it goes back to the error reported earlier for Launch Startup repair 2. Safe mode - BSOD same error 3. Safe mode with networking 4. Safe mode with command prompt 5. Enable boot logging 6. Enable low-resolution video (640x480) 7. Last known good configuration (Advanced) - BSOD same error 8. Directory Services Restore mode 9. Debugging mode 10. Disable automatic restart on system failure 11. Disable driver signature enforcement 12. Start Windows normally
I did not try any of the other options as I was not sure what it was. Then I tapped F2 while starting up and went into the HP Advanced Systems Diagnostics screen. There were a lot of options for running tests.
Every test I run ends up as failed. Failure ID: 0U6G3A-63C785-MFPX0J-60R803. It always says Hard Disk Short DST: Failed
Bottom line is any option I take it gives me one of two errors, either the BSOD UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME or the error that my repair utility cannot create a file.
My system information: Model: HP Pavilion g6 2010tx Notebook PC Processor type: Intel Core i3-2350M CPU @2.30Ghz Current Processor Speed: 2300MHz Memory Size: 4096 MB RAM BIOS Date: 05/29/2013 BIOS Revision: F.25
I have a training environment using W530 laptops that are enclosed in an area in front of the desks. It is not pratical to get to the computer as it is hidden away and therefore I need to be able to use the dvi cabled external monitor for bios setup, boot order, etc.
Right now the boot options are hidden from the external monitor until windows loads. Then the external monitor becomes active. Any way to bypass the laptop monitor altogether?
I purchased CT699854 4GB kit (2GBx2), 200-pin SODIMM from Crucial.com for my Dell Inspiron 1720 laptop. The machine already had 2GB in two 1GB chips for both slots.
When I installed the new chips, Windows Vista Home Premium refused to boot. BIOS recognized the new RAM without problems, but when Windows started to load I immediately got a 0x7b stop error. This is strange, because that usually coincides with an AHCI problem, but that's already turned on in the BIOS with Turbo Memory and works fine.
When I take ONE of those 2GB chips out, leaving an empty DIMM slot, it boots fine. When I use one new 2GB chip in conjunction with one of the old 1GB chips, it boots fine and Vista recognizes 3GB of RAM. But when I push it to 4GB, I get the 0x7b BSoD. I've used all combinations of new and old chips, and it appears the new chips aren't bad as far as I can tell.
I just purchased an Inspiron 14R for my granddaughter (graduation present). I know Dell doesn't ship OS Recovery disks anymore (poor decision), but I thought I'd be able to create one from the Dell Backup and Recovery app.
However, all I see is the "System Recovery" option, which doesn't work. It fails after the first DVD. I don't have a flash drive to try that option yet.
But I don't really want 4 DVDs of a full system backup; I just want a Windows 8 OS Recovery DVD. The manual seems to say I have one opportunity to make one, but I've never seen that option.
There must be a way to get or make a simple Windows 8 OS backup--why is this so difficult?
I have ignored the issue as long as I can but I am too often losing my current state when I hibernate my pc.The screen powers down which makes me think that the hibernation is happening as normal. However I still see the HDD power light remaining active for say 10 minutes.
The computer then throws a blue screen of death and then powers down.When I reboot I get the message Windows did not shutdown successfully. Windows will ask me to upload the crash dump file to Microsoft but I never get any kind of feedback.This process is quite frustrating.
I have been getting the dreaded blue screen every couple of days for the last few months but since last week I keep getting it every 15 minutes ! My lapotp is 4 years old so I guess I cannot drag it anymore and have to think about a replacement hard drive or a new laptop.
So which one is the best option. I dont want to shell out the extra dough on the new one so was wondering if its worth buying a new HD and upgrading the RAM and keep working on the old one. I just use it for internet, word processing and Photoshop.
I just picked up an Inspiron 13 Signature Edition from the Microsoft Store. Pretty decent hardware so far. This is the model with Core i5, 8 GB RAM and 1080p screen, and was only CAD$699+tax after a $100 discount.
I noticed in store that I could not find any options to change touchpad behaviour in detail. Specifically I would like to disable single tap to click (considering this touchpad can press-click I'd rather not accidentally tap-click). I would also love it if I could have the gesture working where triple-tap is like a middle mouse button press.the non-Signature edition of this unit comes with Dell's touchpad driver and all I'd have to do is get the driver from Dell. However when I entered the service tag into Dell's site I did not find a Touchpad driver. I found one from Synaptics for its smaller cousin the Inspiron 11 and guessed it might be the same pad but I could not get the driver to work successfully.
Inspiron 15 running Win7. After cleaning FBI virus, Windows 7 would start to boot then quickly go to BSOD 7b error. Tried Startup Repair many times. Toggled SATA Operation in BIOS to both ATA and AHCI. Imaged the disk, and did a Factory Restore via Startup Repair in AHCI mode then tried again in ATA.. I get the same exact error every time. I am pretty sure that the virus messed with one of the other partitions that is required to boot. I assume that I could order a CD and reinstall, but a way to repair this error.
I have a Dell Inspiron N4110, which I recently installed a new windows on. I can't seem to connect to the internet. Before the new installation the WIFI worked fine, but now even connecting through ethernet doesn't work. I looked through my Network drivers and there are only two.
I've tried download and installing others but no hope.
I have Dell N4010 laptop with 4GB ram (1333 Mhz, 2X2) purchased in Jan 2011. Recently I bought transcend 4GB 1333 and have removed existing 2GB ram and replaced with 4GB to increase the physical memory to 6GB. I can see that the ram has been detected and the total is showing up in Bios. After this, the system does not boot, it just keep restarting.
I tried to start with safemode, however the files load but at the end, I receive a blue screen with error like '...Bad pool header...'.
I'm trying to boot from legacy boot from my new dell 7000 series. however when i change from uefi to legacy i have no boot option. the whole boot list is empty.
i have called dell and the support desk told me dell has no support for legacy :S that means no windows 7 on my dell or any other os that uses non uefi...... i think the bios is corrupt is the whole list is simply missing.
