Boot your XP CD. If you don't have one download either of these and create a bootable CD from the .iso file

XP Recovery Console
Another XP Recovery Console

You don't burn the iso file itself to CD., you create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called DeepBurner which will do this. Another called ISO Recorder is also very easy to use.

Boot the CD and at the first opportunity, enter R to start the Recovery Console.
Next, choose which XP installation you want to login to. Normally this will be 1.
Lastly you will be asked for the Administrator password. Just press the Enter key as the Administrator does not have a password (unless you gave it one, then you would enter it).

From the command prompt, enter: chkdsk c: /r

Allow it to complete undisturbed.

Are you talking about this? Boot the CD and at the first opportunity, enter R to start the Recovery Console.

This could be caused by defective ram.

There are two programs that are normally used to test computer memory, Memtest86 and Microsoft Memory Diagnostic. They are available from the following locations:

Memtest86
[url="http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp""]Microsoft Memory Diagnostic[/url]

Download either (or both): You don't burn the iso file itself to CD., you create a CD from the iso file using your CD burning software. There is a good freeware burner called DeepBurner which will do this. Another called ISO Recorder is also very easy to use.

Boot the CD and run the test for a minimum of 4 passes, overnight is better.

Post back with results. If okay then you're hard drive is the problem. You can try mounting it as a slave drive in another computer then run chkdsk /r against it there.

What do you mean "it didn't work"?

You could not create the CD, it wouldn't run or it ran but didn't find any errors?

This is like pulling teeth :)

What didn't work? It wouldn't boot, it booted but didn't do anything, what?

How did you create the CD? What program did you use? Did you use CDR media or CDRW? Is the CD drive set as the first bootable device in BIOS?

These iso images have been used many thousands of times so it has to be a problem on your end and I hope we can resolve that so you can run the memory test as that is the most likely cause of your initial problem.

Words are cheap, spend a few here :)

When you start DeepBurner, you should get a window that is titled "Select Project Type". You should chose "Burn ISO Image". Then you navigate to the memtest.iso file you downloaded and select it as the "Image file".

That will create the bootable CD for you. You can't just drag and drop the iso file on DeepBurner.

hey

i have the same issue :)

My system was crashing quite often with memory errors and my vista was behaving strangely so i decided to reinstal system from scratch, but after having formated my drive i got that same blue screen page_fault_blabla.

I followed the thread but nor windows tool nor memtest found any pb with my RAM - wich is known as quality ram beside that.

any other idea ? i just can't finish a vista installation (my Vista version is a pro one, Dled from official site and tested on another PC )

thanks :)

It could be that your hard disk is failing. Download the diagnostic tool from the HD manufacturer's site, create a bootable CD and run a complete test. Please report the results. If you need a link for the program write down the make and model of the HD.
