Blue screen at the startup

I have a notebook running xp home that everytime it boots I get a message saying that is going to shutdown to prevent damage to my computer. Page_fault_innonpaged_area, fltmgr.sys.

Any ideas to repair it?

Thanks

Try swapping out the RAM modules, remove one try to boot, then switch and try it on just the other.

Also try it on battery power only.

You could also try booting into the recovery console with your xp cd.

a chkdsk /r may help.


Making a knoppix cd and trying to boot from it may help diagnose if this is a windows problem or a hardware problem.

If it boots to knoppix you'll know it's a windows issue.


Make a bootable memtest cd to test the RAM;

Did you modify any Hardware or did you add any new software or Drivers?
If yes, Press F8 a few times before the XP Startup and select SafeMode.
Then go to control Panel
Select systems (dbl Click)
click on the Hardware Tab
Click on the button Device manager
You will see a window called "device manager"

Now if you see any ? Marks next to any hardware (means a problem)

If you can't be stuffed fixing stuff
Go to START
All Programs
Accessories
System Tools
System Restore

Use System Restore to restore you windows operating system to a time when your system last worked without any problems..
        Good Luck !!!

Description: File fltmgr.sys is located in the folder C:\Windows\System32\drivers. The file size on Windows XP is 124800 bytes.
The driver can be started or stopped from Services in the Control Panel or by other programs. fltmgr.sys is a Windows core system file. The program is not visible. fltmgr.sys is a Microsoft signed file. Therefore the technical security rating is 5% dangerous.

Important: Some malware camouflage themselves as fltmgr.sys, particularly if they are located in c:\windows or c:\windows\system32 folder. Thus check the fltmgr.sys process on your pc whether it is pest.

jdff,

Glad the problem seems fixed. Can you please post a brief summary of what you found. Was the file fltmgr.sys damaged, or was there a computer virus?

(OT: tim, you give me too much credit. Keep up the good work...)
