Laptop or Desktop? Laptop


Hello;

My Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit works only in Safe Mode with Networking.

If I try to start Windows Normaly; it crashes and restarts with the message that Windows has recovered from an expected error. It's a blue screen with some memory dump message... I can't really read it as the screen disappears... It keeps happening.


It had C: & D:
(i) I have taken backup of my Data.
(ii) I have tried to run on both the RAMs (1 GB & 2 GB) to see if the problem was with any of the RAM. It still restarts.
(iii) It runs fine in Safe Mode with Networking
(iv) I have formatted D:
(v) I run chkdsk to check any error on C: it didn't find any error.
(vi) I re-installed Windows Vista Home premium (using lenovo product recovery DVD) & upgraded to Service Pack 2.
(vii) I have also updated Device Drivers.
(viii) I couldn't run OneTouch System Restore as I had increased size of my C: partition.

However problem remains. It keeps restarting. I cannot run Windows Update to look for an Windows Patches as my machine restarts.
and I assume I cannot run Windows Update in Safe Mode.

Please help.

Thanks
Subodh

No. I do not have any device connected to expresscard slot (PCMCIA).

I actually have no external devices connect to my laptop. Only a USB mouse.

Its possible you have 1 or more corrupt system files. One that i can confirm is Pshed.sys. Its checksum doesn't match. This system file job is to communicate with your PCs hardware Firmware.
Its best to run the recovery option for the laptop and attempt a repair. If it fails theres a couple of more steps we can do.

Thanks.

(i) How do I run the recovery option and attempt a repair ?

Can you please advise on steps?

I have a System Recovery DVD that came with laptop. I have actually reinstalled Vista using that with updated to SP2.

(ii) I couldn't run Lenovo's OneTouch System Restore as I had increased size of my C: partition about 2 years ago, as Vista needed more space. It was almost 90 gb.

If you have the system disk you can insert it and reboot. On the POST screen you can press F12 which for most OEM laptops will bring you to a boot menu (It can be a few different buttons depending on the brand). Select the DVD drive and it will boot up the Windows Setup screen. From here there should be a button that says Repair Windows (Below "Install Windows"). You can let Windows automatically attempt repairs.
