How to fight with windows Boot error

When this error occurs :

“A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.


“If this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen, restart the computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

“Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation ask you hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.

“If the problem continues, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components restart your computer press…

“Technical Information:

“0x00000019 (0x00000020, 0x81CDEAB8, 0x81CDEAD8, 0x1A040003) beginning dump of physical memory

“Dumping physical memory to disk”

Soloution :-

The error messages are due to a faulty driver or service. If the device is an add-on card you can try removing it and booting the computer.

If the computer still cannot boot, then you can disable the driver or service either using safe mode or from the “Recovery console”.

To enter into safe mode, please follow the steps: Restart the computer. While booting, tap F8 function key until you get the “Windows Advanced Options Menu” and select Safe Mode. After logging in to the system you may disable the problematic driver or service.

To go to the recovery console, boot the computer from the XP Operating System CD. At the “welcome to set up” screen, press F10 or press R to repair.

This will list the Windows Installations found on the disk. Select the appropriate one. There will be a prompt for the administrator account password.

After logging in, use the “listsvc” command to list the services and drivers on the computer.

Note the name of the driver or service to be disabled.

Disable the service or driver using the “disable servicename” command.

This command will display the old start_type before disabling the service. Find out if the service has to be enabled again from the recovery console.

After eliminating the service or driver that causes this error a newer, error-free version can be installed.
