I recently got a new computer for Christmas and did something really bad today. I was having trouble with firefox and deleted the app data that goes along with it. Somehow I highlighted multiple folders in %appdata% and deleted them too. All of a sudden the backround to my computer turned black and I couldn't refresh my computer. So I tried re-installing windows using the recovery disk they gave me. Everything works until I get this error message. ATTEMPTED EXECUTE OF NOEXECUTE MEMORY. Please help guys I'm literally shaking so bad and don't know what to do this computer cost me so much money.

My thought?

Return as faulty seeing as it's in warranty.

Other Options?

So there is no hope in fixing it?

Well, refresh and using the restore media failed.

Was this bought as 8.1 or was it upgraded?

- Collapse -

Came with 8.1

There's so many things that can cause this....

that I'd have to go with a reinstall. You have the media so I don't understand why it didn't work. Try it again with the user manual.

Re: recovery

Most google hits for this error point to a driver error (or a Kaspersky error). Do you run Kaspersky anti-virus? Did you update drivers recently (maybe from Windows update)?

Usually, if re-installing Windows fails it's either bad hardware or a bad disk you reinstall from, because the Windows on the hard disk doesn't run at all. But since Windows 8.1 has many ways of being installed and repaired, it could be that the way you did it uses the installed Windows also.
Anyway, if none of the repair options work, it seems a warranty case.
