Windows BSODS :( but Linux works :)

Postby pctechie » Sun Dec 27, 2009 1:24 pm

Okay i have had two bsod's from windows xp sp2, memory_management and pfn_corrupt_list, now i have tried everything, safe mode, reboot, reset bios, clean pc, clean ram slots, re insert memory modules, but to no avail,

I have ran memory test no problems :), my Ubuntu works, everything apart from windows :( I think its a driver issue, but i can't correct this as i cannot access safe mode, my only option left is to reinstall xp sp2, but i hope i don't have to, although its looking like the only solution, any other suggestions? to help sort out this problem :?:

Thanks in advance :D

Well, if Linux works, not a Linux or hardware issue, so just Windows.
You would probably do better posting this on a Windows forum.
Few of us are Windows experts.
The sig between the asterisks is so cool that only REALLY COOL people can even see it!

Upgrade to SP3, that is the only version supported by Microsoft now.

Hi pctechie...

> mode........

What?

Contiuously tapping F8 from coldboot does not bring up
the Windows selection screen in Video Mode 3?

Have you got the 6 floppy disc repair set and a floppy
drive internal or external?

Let me clear things up i could select safe mode but i just got a BSOD when loading, and i tried to repair windows major fail, got errors when i booted in windows, so i just did a fresh install :D

And with vista i just can't be bothered updating 24/7 in win 7 updating is managed better, and with me having built my PC, there are hardware issues left, right and center, but in 7 there isn't as many if none, most of the time :)

Can you use the recovery console via CD. If so try a chkdsk /f

when trying safe mode what is the last driver listed before the BSOD? or What is the first part of the BSOD msg?
