Blue screen after memory test!

by klajdi2 / January 12, 2007 10:40 PM PST

Syddenly when I opened my computer after it finished the mem test it shows a blue screen and the phrase: Driver unloaded without cancelling operations.
What is wrong and how can I fix it?
The same day this happened my brother had accidentally removed the USB router cables,but the computer was closed!
I have Windows 2000 Pro.
Please help me!

If it's really urgent, then take it to a repair shop and ask them to fix it while you wait.

What's unclear here?

The forum note which I copied into a reply writes "be sure to include all your system info, including operating system, model number, and any other specifics related to the problem".

You want help but refused to offer needed information.

Why not help others help you?

That's quite revealing. With older hardware I would...

First I would open up the machine and clean it out. The heatsinks would be cleaned off. Next I'd reseat the cards and cables then power up and make sure all the fans are working as they would if new.

A quick inspection of the capacitors (see http://www.badcaps.net/ ) to be sure there is no issue there and then I'd retest it.

-> After all my usual maintenance work is done then I'd consider looking at software issues. If the OS has become corrupt I'd consider a PARALLEL INSTALL of Windows 2000 then start migrating to the new install.
