HP Pavilion G7 OS/Software :: Windows 7 Crashes To Blue Screen When Try To Update Skype
Jun 5, 2014
I have the HP- Pavilion g7 Notebook and have not had any problems until I was getting a Blue Screen of death after an update of Skype got on my computer. I had to do a system recovery several times until I found out this is a problem apparently caused by skype, now skype wants to update again and windows7 doesn't like it at all, the machine crashes again. Last resort, I downloaded an older verson of skype which works fine but in the long run doesn't solve the problem. If there is a fix what is it, I have not gotten any suggestions from skype, to get this resolved. The only thing I hear it might be related to some driver that has not been updated. What can I do?
trying to do a fresh install of xp thou a its running quite slow and getting loads of popups etc.
Any way put the XP CD and boot rom it via the bios. It begins to load all te XP files then suddenly crashes to the famous blue screen , saying something about a hardware problem, and my PC was shut down to prevent any damage.
i've frequantly had this problem , when i start my laptop ( hp pavilion 15n021se ) on the lock screen when i'm going to click to enter my password , just after moving mouse cruser i get the blue screen saying that the error is " invalid process attachment attempt "
i searched for this error and most results was meeting my thoughts that the cause for this error is the touch pad driver .
i've installed the latest version of the driver (sp64225) , and it doesn't suitable for my windows so i want a previous version of the driver
I keep getting blue screens complaining about igdpmd64.sys x00000050. I noticed on the day that I suddenly started getting blue screens Windows installed a bunch of windows 7 x64 updates. Does the recent windows updates can cause this?
At times I cannot even reboot normally when it occurs. I have had to restore to a previous version.
I just brought a Hp Pavillion 15 Notebook (Windows 8.1), and its been working fine. Ive been in a skype call with my friends while playing a game (meaning skype is minimised). But all of a sudden, the sound stops and i can hear my game, but not skype. I maximised skype and then my friends could hear me and i could hear them, but everytime i minimise skype i cant hear them and they can't hear me. I tried this with spotify, and i could hear the music even when spotify was minimised.
I was using my hp pavilion dv6 notebook and then it got a blue screen with white text (I believe hard drive problem , idk) I restarted the computer and my computer couldn't load my Windows 7 OS. I already tried Safe mode, I tried to the repair option. The computer tried to repair for 7 hour without any results. I already tried resetting with Windows recovery disc, didn't work..
recently installed an automatic update to windows 8.1. Now I get a black screen after the welcome page. I can load task manager and get to the internet. tried to get to safe mode at startup with f8 but several attempts were unsuccessful. I updated my graphics driver from AMD today and same black screen appears. I also restored sytem to an earlier date using the HP utility with same results - black screen after welcome page.
My troubles are as follows: I started working on a presario v6130us laptop with a blue screen. The owner thought it was due to a virus when she opened a email. I went and wiped the HD and reinstalled windows XP pro. Had the darn thing working nicely.
Then I thought he computer was running a lil slow, so I decide to update the bios. From (I believe) v.07 to ver.29 from the hp website. At the restart, it never restarted, so I restarted it by pressing power button. Went into the same ol blue screen loop. The stop message is 0x0000007b. I looked that variable up on the microsoft webpage. It says it is a Win 2000 unmountable boot device. Prior to this message it was Stop 0x000000ED.
Does anyone know how to roll the bios back, or what could be causing this problem? I have done a quick HD test. so far it has passed and is now doing the "executing" test @ 20% complete. B4 the bios update, the test would say FAIL 1- 07.
I have a Windows 7 HP Pavilion dv7. I can use the internet 2 different ways - through AOL or through Internet Explorer. It works fine going through AOL. But when I go directly thru Internet Explorer, I get the dreaded Blue Screen. I have gotten a messsage to upgrade to Internet Explorer 11, but when I try to do that, I get the Blue Screen.
Pavillion DV6-2155dx from 2010 working fine earlier today, then went to turn it back on and it generated a blank blue screen and will not go any further . . . no error message at all. Ran a "Start Up Test" which said that Memory Test passed, Smart Check passed, but Short DST failed.
I recently bought a used HP Pavilion dv2000 used & when I went to use it I got a blue screen that says enter password. What the password could even be as I didn't know the person I bought it from so can't retrieve the password. When I hit enter 3 times I get a message saying System Disabled 05198 ....
I had a dv2700t, with a problem I described in this forum some time ago... I didn't manage to solve the problem and HP couldn't/wouldn't "fix" it... the problem was that the wireless... caused blue screens/crashes randomly while using internet (downloading large and small torrent files for example) this happened ONLY when using WIRELESS connection.
I now, after nagging on HP for months, own a dv7-1290.
Imagine my surprise when I get the same problem...the only difference that I've been able to discern between this problem and the old problem is that this computer doesn't crash the UBUNTU live cd that the other computer managed to do......
I've been having trouble with the screen on my HP Pavilion dm4 2070 USA. Half of my screen has some green/blue dots on it. when i open a webpage you cannot see the dots. This is the first time this has happened.
I have a HP Pavilion G6 2302ax laptop. When i uses google chrome, sometimes the screen gets some grains and suddenly becomes blue. A message is displayed saying that the system encountered an error and need to be restarted. The error is "SYSTEM_SERVICE_ EXEMPTION".
I am using the high performance graphics for running google chrome.
I have an Acer 5100, AMD Turion 64x2, with Windows Vista (OEM, not an upgrade (downgrade)), and Vista SP1 is installed.
I still kick myself for buying this, but too late to cry over that. Lesson learned: Get the HP, Compaq, Dell, or Lenovo. Nobody's perfect, of course, but not everybody stinks and sucks and has a pathetic support site without live chat the way Acer does.
From day 1, it has had surprise shutdowns when not in use (as in, overnight or during periods of not being used), about once every week or two. Sometimes, it's not a total shutdown, but it just doesn't recover from suspend (The suspend/recover issue appears to be quite a common problem, lots of similar sounding posts out there on various forums: The fan spins, lights are on, jiggling the mouse (laser mouse) lights up the mouse as if the computer's responding, but the screen stays black). There's nothing obvious in Event Viewer.
In other words, it hasn't shut down on me while using it, but after leaving it, coming back the next day, it will about once every week or two either have shut down, or won't come out of suspend.
The final question, is the BIOS update on the Acer website says "Windows XP", and there isn't one for Vista.
It's definitely virus free, spyware free, rootkit free. FYI, also up to date on patches, and Vista SP1.
Sorry for the seemingly multiple-problem post, but I think they might all be related from this intriguing comment in the BIOS update release notes:
"1. SLOVE UMA S4 OVERNIGHT BLACKSCREEN"
I'm pretty sure they mean "Solve", since some other comments for other fixes say "Solve". Not knowing what they mean, but certainly suffering from something that could be called an overnight blackscreen, I'm tempted to try the BIOS update.
QUESTIONS... 1. There's a DOS and Windows subfolder in the zip file for the BIOS update. Safe to run the BIOS update from a command window?
