My computer usually locks up about 5-10 minutes after starting up the first time in any given day. I have to use the power strip to kill the computer and then I can restart, and life is hunky-dory.

However, every once in a while I have been getting blue screens of death during the shutdown sequence. This is the microsoft "your computer has recovered from a serious error" dialogue information.

BCCode : 10000050 BCP1 : FFFFFDBC BCP2 : 00000000 BCP3 : 804EDDD0
BCP4 : 00000000 OSVer : 5_1_2600 SP : 2_0 Product : 768_1

I have no idea if either of these are related. The computer scans clean with norton and with AVG. So, does anyone here have any ideas what's going on inside my box?

Thanks

Click start then run, type prefetch then press enter, click edit then select all, right click any file then click delete, confirm delete

Click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then from system tools, run disc defragmenter.

Click start then run, type sfc /scannow then press enter, you need the XP CD and Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

Click start then run, type chkdsk /f /r then press enter, type Y to confirm for next boot, press enter then reboot.

Windows will appear to load normally then either the monitor will show progress or the screen will go blank, do not disturb this. This will take an hour or so before it gets to the desktop.

Download and install Tune Up 2006 Trial

Run Tune Up Disc Clean Up

Run Tune Up Registry Clean Up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, which will take a few minutes and need a reboot. You should disable the antivirus programme to run this and check it is running after the reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor

If no change, the next thing to do would be a repair install, this will leave data and settings intact


XP Repair

After running the repair it will be necessary to install all Windows Updates

Microsoft Update

I have one problem... I have a Sony- didn't come with any disks for XP. Is there a workaround for that?
Thanks.

Nope, isnt there a way you can borrow a disk from a friend??? You can do a chkdsk /f /r without the XP disk when in windows.

Cool :whistling:
