First of all, I'm pretty computer illiterate, so if you have any suggestions, please be detailed or I'll remain confused and sad. Sorry if this was dealt with in previous questions... I just generally don't know what the solutions mean on those listings.

Thanks in advance! In addition, everything's backed up so I'm not worried about saving anything. Though strangely My Computer is unaccessible-- the flashlight searches perpetually

My virus protection wore off a couple days ago, but it took me some time to put some new stuff on there. By the time I started trying to, it was apparently too late.

I turned my computer on yesterday morning to numerous error codes. (listed below) After clicking either ok or cancel over 25 times, the computer shuts down. Occasionally I can run programs in the background, but for no more than 5 min.

Error Code Examples
aolload.exe- (0xc0000005)
dwwin.exe- failed to initialize properly (0xc0000005)
svchost.exe- instruction at "0x6bfa9c46" referenced memory at "0x6ba9c46" memory couldn't be read
services.exe- instruction at "0x6bfa9c46" referenced memory at "0x6ba9c46" memory couldn't be read
spoolsv.exe- instructionat "0x6bfa9ccd"referenced memory at "0x6bfa9ccd"" memory couldn't be read

When I try to turn the computer off through the start menu I end up with blue screen of death that says: STOP d0000144 unknown hard error.

System Restore will not function. I tried accessing it through the start menu and typing the address via run command "msconfig". (somewhere online said that was the command...)

I also tried to get to System restore through safemode, but unfortunately I ended up with yet another Blue Screen of death:
Video driver failed to initialize
***STOP: 0x000000B4 (0x82A19008, 0x2A1E000, 0x82A15000, 0x00050000)
Beginning physical dump of memory
Physical memory dump complete

Please tell me what I need to do. I have all of the discs still.

Regarding this error
Video driver failed to initialize
***STOP: 0x000000B4 (0x82A19008, 0x2A1E000, 0x82A15000, 0x00050000)

See here

Or here

The second link mentions checking for a bios update related to your hardware (please attempt what the first link suggests before attempting the following)... It just so happens one does exist related to a similar issue.


Or (if the above link doesn't work).

As always if attempting a BIOS flash you need to do 2 things. Backup your important data, and do not turn the power off on the laptop (from ac/or battery) until the flash is complete.

The instructions from the website are as follows.

This SoftPaq contains the video BIOS for the ATI Mobility Radeon 9200 graphics subsystem in the notebook models listed below.


This video BIOS update is recommended only for notebooks that are experiencing problems with the video display during system startup, after resuming from Standby, or after resuming from hibernation.


- Fixes intermittent issue where the Suspend mode was unstable.

- Fixes display issue where lid switch causes backlight to turn off.


1. Download the SoftPaq .EXE file to a directory on your hard drive.

2. Execute the downloaded file and follow the on-screen instructions.

3. After you see the message "This will update your video BIOS," Press OK, then press the "Program" button and continue to follow the on-screen instructions, allowing the computer to restart.

4. After the computer restarts, wait for WinFlash to complete the update of the video BIOS. You may not be able to move the mouse during this step.


As for your other issues / error codes I will look into those. The above is worth a shot. In my personal opinion though a 5 year old laptop may be on it's way out the door.

These following links from geekstogo feature related issues to the "STOP d0000144" code. I see no real fix found in any of them yet they still may help your issue.
