Hello everyone, just found this place.
Well I have an Asus Laptop with a centrino 1.5 and a WD 40 gig hd and 512megs of ram with XP pro.

Today I oppened my computer and after only a few seconds, the DREADFULL BSD appeared.
It does so everytime I boot the BSD appears at different intervals(immediately to 4-5 min)

I typed eventvwr.msc and found the log for the error.

Here it is:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Event Type: Error
Event Source: W32Time
Event Category: None
Event ID: 29
Date: 8/31/2006
Time: 7:35:00 PM
User: N/A
Computer: ADMIN
Description:
The time provider NtpClient is configured to acquire time from one or more time sources, however none of the sources are currently accessible. No attempt to contact a source will be made for 14 minutes. NtpClient has no source of accurate time.

For more information, see Help and Support Center at http://go.microsoft....link/events.asp.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

THis computer is on a wireless network with cable modem, wireless router, Vonage and 2 computers(this being one of them).
I have tried the command prompt: w32tm /resync
and have also tried to stop and start it, and it says that it has no time available to sync to.

The computer is Ok in Safemode, but not in normal mode.
This is soo wierd... Please send help and ideas.
Thanks
Theo

Hey, thanks for trying to help.

Ok, Automatic synchronization is On and the 2 servers are: time.windows.com and time.nist.gov


I have just discovered that if Windows starts in SafemodeWith Networking, it also goes BSOD.
I can only work in simple safemode

Use safe mode to run this up to tune up then check if it will load properly, if so get tune up, if not, use another PC to download and save tune up to CDRW and install it from that

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

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

Windows File Protection will show a blue onscreen progress bar, when the bar goes, reboot

If you do not have an XP CD you can borrow a same version as was originally installed XP CD, if you downloaded SP2 then you need an SP1 XP CD

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

Thanks for the help

A combination of Tune up 2006 and updating the wireless drivers seems to have solved the problem
