Errors on Boot - Recovering Files

By BorgInva ·
I rebooted my PC after getting some "out of memory" errors. Upon boot, all the PC wants to do is scroll and scroll "recovering orphaned file xxxxxxxxxxx". I rebooted as it was taking forever (I hope I lost nothing valuable). I tried to boot into SAFE MODE but I get BSOD telling me "image url.dll is corrupted". The same thing when I bypass the chkdsk XP wants to do on normal boot. I tried to boot into Recovery Console on the CD, but I get the same BSOD.

I can not enter Recovery Console or any of the Safe Modes due to this url.dll error.

Any way to boot back up?

Thank you.

I need help....
I want to be able to at least know my personal data is good. My last backup was months ago and I have many new home videos added.

It sounds like a faulty ram module.Remove one module at a time and boot from one ram module.Whichever one causes the bsod is the faulty module.

Are you sure your motherboard has compatability for 2gb?.Try with one ram module

Set for 4G

by BorgInva In reply to mother board

This board can go up to 4G, and I have tried using each of the 1G RAMs by itself.

It has been running 1G for almost 2 years. I stuck the 2nd RAM in last month and all has been fine until yesterday's reboot.

Last night I did use a bootable disk of Memtest86 and after 7 passes of steps 1-8, there were no errors.


I will be playing with the RAM soon.

No Good.

by BorgInva In reply to Ram

Did not help. I tried putting each RAM in the main slot by itself. Still BSOD into url.dll error. Plus, hard drive power shuts down each time it bombs.

Ok, I'll ask a dumb question...

How about just reinstalling the OS over what you all ready have?
