I have no idea. It could be due to hardware. Lets change that service to manual instead and see the difference.

  • Please double-click OTL.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • Copy the entire content of the quote box (except the word quote) below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    :reg
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\agpCPQ]
    "Start"=dword:00000003

  • Return to OTL, right click in the "Custom Scans/Fixes" window and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Run Fix button.
  • The computer will restart
  • A report will be produced and saved in the C:\_OTL\MovedFiles folder. Open that report and post its contents in a reply.

Try to boot now and see where it stops.

Here's the fix log:



========== REGISTRY ==========
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\agpCPQ\\"Start"|dword:00000003 /E : value set successfully!

Lets disable the services that deal with accelerated Graphics.

  • Please double-click OTL.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • Copy the entire content of the quote box (except the word quote) below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    :reg
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\agpCPQ]
    "Start"=dword:00000004
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\viaagp]
    "Start"=dword:00000004
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\amdagp]
    "Start"=dword:00000004
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\sisagp]
    "Start"=dword:00000004
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\agp440]
    "Start"=dword:00000004

  • Return to OTL, right click in the "Custom Scans/Fixes" window and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Run Fix button.
  • The computer will restart
  • A report will be produced and saved in the C:\_OTL\MovedFiles folder. Open that report and post its contents in a reply.

Chances are you are having hardware issues. Specially the Display Adapter.

  • Please double-click OTL.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • Copy the entire content of the quote box (except the word quote) below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    :reg
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\alim1541]
    "Start"=dword:00000004

  • Return to OTL, right click in the "Custom Scans/Fixes" window and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Run Fix button.
  • The computer will restart
  • A report will be produced and saved in the C:\_OTL\MovedFiles folder. Open that report and post its contents in a reply.

Interestingly enough the BSOD is different, when booting into Normal Mode, from that of either "Safe Mode" options within Advanced Startup. The BSOD, when booting into Normal Mode, is:

Technical information:
***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xBA4EB524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)


When booting into either Safe Mode options, it is:

Technical information:
*** STOP: 0xF78C6528, 0xC0000034,0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Lets reverse our actions:
  • Please double-click OTL.exe to run it. (Note: If you are running on Vista, right-click on the file and choose Run As Administrator).
  • Copy the entire content of the quote box (except the word quote) below to the clipboard by highlighting ALL of them and pressing CTRL + C (or, after highlighting, right-click and choose Copy):

    :reg
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\agpCPQ]
    "Start"=dword:00000000
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\viaagp]
    "Start"=dword:00000000
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\amdagp]
    "Start"=dword:00000000
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\sisagp]
    "Start"=dword:00000000
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\agp440]
    "Start"=dword:00000000
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\alim1541]
    "Start"=dword:00000000

  • Return to OTL, right click in the "Custom Scans/Fixes" window and choose Paste.
  • Click the red Run Fix button.
  • The computer will restart
  • A report will be produced and saved in the C:\_OTL\MovedFiles folder. Open that report and post its contents in a reply.

Restart to the BSOD. Then enter your BIOS and change the AHCI setting to ATA or compatible. For some reason seems that the system is not reaching a boot device. Chances are is unable to read the drive.

If changing this setting wont work, then change it back to AHCI.

As a second option, we should check the drive.

Please download ARCDC from Artellos.com.
  • Double click ARCDC.exe
  • Follow the dialog until you see 6 options. Please pick: Windows Professional SP2 & SP3
  • You will be prompted with a Terms of Use by Microsoft, please accept.
  • You will see a few dos screens flash by, this is normal.
  • Next you will be able to choose to add extra files. Select the Default Files.
  • The last window will allow you to burn the disk using BurnCDCC
Your ISO is located on your desktop.

Once burned into a disk, boot the ailing computer with this disc and reach the Recovery Console. At the console's propt type the following and press Enter:

CHKDSK /F

Let me know the outcome.

Would it be OK for me to skip over the BIOS change, and opt for the checkdisk prior to making it?

Perhaps you need the drivers (F6 option). I will check on the site. Is there a diagnostic option during Dell's Splash logo?

No.







EDIT: I am currently in the process of saving an image of this hard drive, as there does not exist a means to recover from any possible disasters. Allow me just a little extra time to back up what we have. I will write the image to a 320 GB Western Digital hard drive (tested good via an "extended test" in Data Lifeguard Tools) then make that change to the AHCI BIOS setting and see what, if anything, happens..... ;)

To use the Recovery CD, you will need to load the Intel Matrix Drivers.

Download Intel Matrix System Manager drivers "OS Pre-Install" fileR173412.EXE from dell.com, and copy the extracted files to a blank floppy disk for the "F6" installation step. Attached a USB floppy drive to the machine.

Boot with the Recovery Console's boot CD, press "F6" when prompted, read the intel disk controller drivers off the floppy, when 4 choices of disk controllers popped up, select bottom choice "ICH9R" Sata RAID. The Recovery Console should proceed normally (remember to keep the floppy in the drive until you're completely done)

Once in the prompt, run CHKDSK /F.
