Windows Booting

Anytime I boot my machine it freezes along the line and comes up with a blue-screen message that contains the following codes:


What is the cause and how can it be fixed?

Thank you very much and all the best.

The cause is a hardware failure that is not memory(ram). Happens when computer is moved but not treated gently. From the looks of the error numbers, it looks like your IDE or sata cables are not connected properly, IF they are then they might need to be replaced. If you can boot in safe mode, then probably need cable replace.

Or harddrive failure and you need a new harddrive.

First the above poster is correct you have a hardware failure not related to RAM. To fix this you can either start changing things willy nilly and eventually get it working again or go about things in a professional manner.

The first thing to do would be to get a copy of the HDD makers diagnostic tool and test your HDD/s.

If there has been nothing new added to this unit then you can get a copy of the Ultimate Boot CD available at

Make your computer boot off the CD as first option and then run the diagnostics to see what is going wrong. With this CD you can test all of your hardware and find any faults.
