Windows fail to start after crashing.
Posted on 2003-03-11
I'm a power-gamer, and i love the latest 3D games such as C&C Generals. My computer keep crashing when I play for an about an hour or so, but that was fine until lately. The computer shuts down, and when I tried to start it up again it stuck at the start-up screen. The blue thing that scroll across just stuck after a while and stays there. I've tried so many things to get it running (from safe mode, which i can go to but not normal mode): unistall the game and some other software, disable certain devices, repair windows, retoring, you name it. But nothing seems to work. So just give up on it. But then when I turn it up next time, it works fine.
From there on, when ever the computer crashes, it does that. Stuck on start-up. Then I just follow the whole process ads before. Sometimes it takes just a few tries, sometimes it take a hell of a long time. I couldn't even figure out what fixed it. It's weird.
But then I checked the events log. and this is what it says about the problem:
The following boot-start or system-start driver(s) failed to load:
Can some one please tell how to fix this problem. I've tried to download and install Windows XP patched but still does the same problem when it crash. In case you are wondering, my whole system is pretty good, Athlon XP 1800+, 768 MB DDR RAM (133), 40GB hard drive, GForce 4 Ti4200 with 64 MB memory. And i've tested them as well, they work fine on my other 2 computers.
Some help please.
