Windows hangs, restarts, BSOD and other errors... need help.

by manuelitros / February 27, 2007 2:21 AM PST

Well, I?m having some errors since last week, my computer randomly hangs and restarts, then I got BSOD telling me "IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL" and "STOP: 0x00000024" and yestarday I got a new message, it stoped working and I got a black screen saying:
"INTEL(r)865G PCI Accelerated SVGA BIOS
Build number: 1235 PC 14.14 07/18/2005 09:53:19
DECOMPILATION OR DISASSEMBLY PROHIBITED"

I first tought it was the power supply or the RAM, did some memory tests and nothing wrong, now I think maybe my motherboard has a bad capacitor, but I inspected it and it didn't at a glance.
When it hangs I can?t restart the computer inmediatly, I must unplug it from the power source and then it may start.
Do you have any ideas?

Intel 865GBF motherboard
Intel 3.0Ghz HT processor
2 SATA hard drives
Windows XP Pro SP2
The computer is 3 years old

Thanks in advance,
Manuel

What type of error messages are there here? HDD errors?

Here are some suggestions for you:

First: Ensure that your pc is virus/worm/trojan/Malware free.
Second: run the disk check utilities in my computer. Right click C: drive > properties > tools. Click check now under error checking. Check both boxes and let Windows restart and do it's thing.
Third: When that is done return to the same dialog box and defrag your HDD.
Lastly: run SFC /SCANNOW (start > run > sfc /scannow) to reinstall system files which may be corrupt. You'll need your full cd of Win XP

Keep me posted,
Decorte

Some odd entries there.

"The Client IP-IPX" means you would be on a Novell network. Not many do that today. Maybe a clue is there such as machine age or other.

The Sentinel item is telling as well. I rarely see that except for work computers where we have those protection dongles.

The outlook for repair is indeed grim but I take it you are not going to save the files first but try to repair the filesystem and OS. If so, please tell me so the path you choose will get some answers.

Well, I updated the sound and video drivers and it worked for 3 weeks without giving any problems, so I tought I had found the problem, but 3 weeks after I'm finding I have the same problems again and is getting even worse, I'm not able to boot until I try it several times. I think I'll do my backup and reinstall.
BTW CHKDSK didn't even work, it hangs on step 4.
Thanks all for your answers.

while I did give up I'm still looking for some answers, if anyone has a clue please tell me...
well, I have my backup ready and I'm ready to reinstall windows, BUT, I'd like to know why sometimes when it restarts by itself I'm not able to reboot, I mean, the motherboard doesn't even starts, I dont get the INTEL message and it wont start, in order to restart I have to disconnect everything from the pc and then open and disconect the wires inside, if I dont do this it wont start, I know its weird but this is what I have to do.
Every time turn on the regulator to turn on my pc it aparently powers up but then shuts down, and it turns on once I hit the on button on the pc(this is normal to me, since the beggining when I bought it, it was like this), but when it restarts I can turn on and off the regulator and the computer wont do this.
this week i've been receiving BSOD regarding drivers so I think its a windows problem but the other issues get me confused. I aprecciate your help.
Sorry if I'm not so clear, but its kind of hard to explain this for me.

Thanks again,
Manuel

Don't reinstall Windows!

"the motherboard doesn't even starts, I dont get the INTEL message and it wont start"

This is not caused by XP. So fix your hardware and then your issues will likely go away.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
