    Hi Ernie,.

    You get a Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) error?

    A 41 event is used to signal that something unexpected has happened that prevent Windows to close properly. This problem may be caused, if some hardware drivers are not updated.

    I suggest for the link and follow the steps in the article based on different scenarios.

    Of core Windows event error ID 41 'the system has rebooted without cleanly close the first' in Windows 8, Windows Server 2012, Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

    See also:

    Note: The data files that are infected must be cleaned only by removing the file completely, which means that there is a risk of data loss.

    Hope this solves the problem. If the problem persists, you can write to us and we will be happy to help you further.

    1. You have security software installed on the computer?
    2. You receive an error message when you restart the computer?

    Reinstalling Windows XP to the factory setting would not be the first option.

    It is possible that some third-party programs or the services installed on the computer interfere with the installation of service pack 3.

    I suggest that you try to uninstall service pack 3 from the computer by using the recovery console and subsequently ask the article below for what to do before installing the service pack 3on the computer.

  • Need help with screen Blus of death (BSOD) on my computer toshiba laptop

    Hello all, Ive had a little last week, or problems with my laptop. While playing a game (minecraft), I would randomly have a BSOD error and my laptop will re-start. Initially, I gave it no thought, but when it happened again, I decided to try to do a little research, but I'm not terrible with technology and other then I'm neither the case with my own research.

    If someone could point me in the direction of a few possible ways to get this problem.

    guys do you propose I make to the store and see if they can check it out, what would I need if I did.

    I got a program to read some sort of file "dump" made when occurs a BSOD, I publish what this program here says? the program is BlueScreenView, if yes, what I have post the spectator thing? There are has 2 main screens on it, SDO as Sho different dump files (which is on the top) and on the bottom, it lists the names of different files for each dump file I think that some of them highlighted.

    im not this product with tech so I don't know much but I need to post anything on my laptop or any information of the dumpfile and would have this info help in any way to determine the problem? just tell me what I have to post and ill get the information displayed in a response, thank you.


    PS: I don't think that playing minecraft is the cause of the BSOD and crashing, but I only get it when playing minecraft, so I don't know if minecraft is causing accidents and others. I watch videos and this all the time and I never have an accident. I'll try and play a different game and see if this causes my laptop down and the cause is perhaps high usuage to my laptop, as I've said games require a lot of power of a laptop/computer, if they are not the 'best' laptop for games. but yh, if someone thinks they can help me and need some information please tell me so I can get it for you. If you guys think it would be best to get a professional to look just mylaptop say, however im save as a last resort.
