Virtual Box Error - Can not access the Kernel driver

I have Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit OS, Installed Virtual Box version 4.1.4 ... During the Restart, I got Blue-Screen error, due to Network Driver issue, I booted with "Last known good configuration" option and booted.

Then I installed Windows XP 32 bit on VM , the installation went smoothly. But when I tried to start the VM, I am getting the following error.

Failed to open a session for the virtual machine Windows XP 32 Bit.

The virtual machine 'Windows XP 32 Bit' has terminated unexpectedly during startup.

Result Code: E_FAIL (0x80004005)
Component: Machine
Interface: IMachine {5eaa9319-62fc-4b0a-843c-0cb1940f8a91}

Any help would be much appreciated..

If you have received Blue screen then it won't work anyway. I suggest you to to perform clean boot using the instructions below then remove virtual box and reinstall correct Virtualbox for your machine and try again. (I hope you are suing correct version -VirtualBox 4.1.4 for Windows hosts x86/amd64)

Thanks for the reply Prasanth.

I am using the correct version of virtual box and I had tried all those you mentioned ....  And to my surprise, last week, I had the same issue with another Laptop and somehow I got it worked perfectly , although the Blue screen came and I ignored the error ....

Have you tried running disk check on your host machine? looks like there is something wrong in there ten. it runs fine if all your drivers are correct.

It wasn't any disk check issue. Some Virtual box bug causes it.

The issue I found out was, I had restarted my machine after installing Virtual box application, it screwed up the Network driver and caused BSOD.

So, what I did was, I installed Virtual Box, then without restart, I completed my XP Virtual Machine in it and then did a reboot., during the reboot, I selected "Last known good configuration" option and voila, I got the machine back up and running ...  Although this is just a lame way I solved the issue, it served the purpose.
