Server 2003 r2 BIOS Boot error 0075

rljack01 used Ask the Experts™
How do I resolve this intermittent but recurring problem?

Error is intermittent. Error says that user profile was corrupted.
All settings, favorites, files disappear but upon restart they reappear.

Seems to be several things in the problem mix that are dependant variables ie. the BIOS error, the HDD that was recognized by the BIOS check and a corrupted user profile.

CPU = Intel 3.2 GHz
RAM = 2GB Kingston corresponding to the MOBO

Does the user profile include pointers to the FAT?

I will check for BIOS update of FW but need to know how to update it to determine if that is the problem.

I do not think that the issue is with the 250GB WD SATA1.

Does the BIOS have an influence upon the user profile during the startup process?

I really don't think so as I have encountered hung files and apps almost daily.

WMS hangs almost daily as do 2 other files (perhaps DLLs).

The hanging og DLLs may permit profile corruption at Shutdown.

It seems that the corrupted user profile results at the boot immediately following there being a "COLD shutdown"  and not a 'warm restart'.

IE had a hanging initialization issue but works upon restart.  OL had connectivity.
Utility "REGCURE" will not initialize - I suspect a registry issue.
Adaware took 7:45:00 minutes to scan 80% (extremly slow) as usually took 0:21:00 to perform the scan.
SpyBot S&D found nothing.  I will post HiJackThis log.

Don't know how to interpret.  What is your conclusion?

"REG Cure" just came up.  163 errors fixed mostly empty registry keys.

However the hanging und unresponsive system processes - perhaps DLLs Cicero UI Wndframe and WMS idle persist at shutdown and likely are hung during PC operation.  How do I correct that issue?

I eliminated some apps from loading at startup and edited the registry based upon HiJackThis data.

And did error 0075 go away?


Yes, the 0075 error seems to have gone away as it was intermittent prior I can't be 100% positive until I run the PC for a longer period of time.
However I'm now encountering a "TFSERVICE.EXE error at instruction 0x7c84afb2" referenced memory at 0x00000014.  The memory could not be written while running PCTools' Antivirus this morning after having removed Visual Studio 2008 yesterday.
I'll have to post that as a new issue if I can't resolve it in my initial research.



This AM I also encountered the failure of the local profile to load, an issue that I thought was resolved.
I wonder if there was a process in VS 2008 (which I've since unloaded - yesterday) that kept the profile loading ok or the local profile load failure could be just coincidence?
I research further and post another incident if warranted.
