Toot of Dell Inspiron 910 windows system32 ntoskrnl.exe error

I booted up my laptop Inspiron 910 and got the following error message:

Windows root system32 ntoskrnl.exe missing or corrupt please reload the disc.

I tried several attempts through the advanced options [F8] and always comes back to the same error message.  I changed the BIOS to allow the disc to load first.  I put the Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition SP3 CD and you press a button to start.  Setup begins to install the files, but then I get the blue screen of death.

It reads:

A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to ensure that it is properly configured and completed. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.

Technical information:

STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF7A5E63C, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)

I also run diagnostics and got these error messages:

Error Code 0F00:0244 Msg: DISK_0_Block 13533192 cannot read, replace the drive or remove the write protection

I also have the same error codes in the following blocks:









Any assistance or solutions would be useful!

    That's when the error message appears: pc needs to be fixed: File:\windows\system32\winload.exe error code: Oxc000000I

    I'd appreciate any help as to how I can get to the repair, the troubleshhot or advanced options which are supposd to be available.

    Tony Hey,

    Regrettable that the problem exists.

    Seems like a problem in the BIOS settings, it would be good to check with the manufacturer of the PC.

    They might have more insight on this.

    Shouldn't you have the following option under integrated peripherals:

    On Chip IDE - SATA Controller [SATA, RAID or off]

    You don't want RAID!

    You should be able to select SATA and then SAVE the changes that you exit the BIOS (sometimes people forget this step!).

    Not all mobos have the ability to disable sata ahci. The sata/raid controller driver is needed for windows recognize the drive sata hard. Having the pilot does not mean that you have to configure or use the raid features. RAID is simply two working as one of the hard drives. Most of the drivers manufacturer mobo that I take care of combine sata and raid drivers for the controller in a single package. Here is an example of a driver for Intel Matrix Storage Manager. It is a common driver needed for Windows to recognize a disk sata hard connected to a motherboard Intel. If the options as shown in the above post by Jose do not appear in the bios then install drivers, as I said. For this reason, Windows gives you the opportunity to press F6 to install the drivers before the implementation.

  • Windows (Vista) can not start because the following file is missing or corrupt: < root windows > \system32\ntoskrnl.exe

    When I start windows, the message that I get a black screen is Windows (Vista) cannot start because the file is missing or corrupt: \system32\ntoskrnl.exe. Please reinstall a copy of the above file.

    I tried to launch a system of diagnosis without a disk and everything going on. I then tried running windows in safe mode and it won't allow me. That's when I switched to an installation disc supplied with the system. I tried to recover the system from there, but it would not go beyond the option of choosing an operating system. Once I got to that screen, there was NO operating system choose.

    I tried to restore my computer and there is no restore point.

    I renounced restore my computer and thought I'll all start over and install windows vista all over again. This was not the case either. I followed these steps:

    1. Turn on your computer and insert the CD or the DVD of Windows Vista.

    2. Install Windows page, follow all of the instructions that appear, and then clickInstall now.

    3. On the Get updated important for installation page, we recommend getting the latest updates to help ensure a successful installation and to help protect your computer against security threats. You will need an Internet connection to get the installation updates.

    4. On the Type your product key for activation page, we strongly recommend that you type your 25-character product key in order to avoid problems during activation.

    5. On the Please read the license terms page, if you agree to the terms of the license, clickI accepts the terms of the license.

    6. Follow the instructions on each page. On the type of installation do you want? page, clickCustom.

    7. On the place where you want to install Windows? page, select the partition where you want to install.

    8. Click next to begin the installation. You can see a compatibility report.

    and then had this error that says;

    windows doesn't have can create a partition on disk 0. The error occurred when preparing the partition selected for installation. Error code: 0x80004005.

    Now I am stuck and don't know what to do.

  • I am running xp Pro 64-bit and get entered C:\WINDOWS\system32\ rundll.exe error: FQ10 what to do?

    I followed the instructions to load the OS disk, type expand C:i386\rundll.ex_ C:\windows\system32\rundll.exe, etc., but the error continues to appear.

    Looks like you had a meeting with the FBI MoneyPack (Ransomware) malicious software.  Fact that all sounds familiar (FBI, your PC is locked, you need to pay your fine, etc.).

    You must first perform some scanners from reputable and do what they can do, but sometimes leave you with a fake startup item that you must manually remove using something like Autoruns.

    No matter what you use for protection against malware, perform the following analyses for malware, then correct any problems:

    Download, install, update and do a quick scan with these free malware detection programs (not at the same time):

    Malwarebytes (MMFA):
    SUPERAntiSpyware: (SAS):

    SAS will probably report a lot of tracking cookies and you can just let him delete them.

    They can be uninstalled later if you wish.

    The scans by operating clean, restart, and then fix any problems.

    If you still receive the message, delete the element of persistent starting using Autoruns.

    Here's how:

    A "Cannot find...". ', ' Failed to start..., "Could not load..." ». "Might not work... "" Cannot run ""error loading... ". "or"specific module could not be found"message at startup is usually related to the malware that has been configured to run at startup, but the referenced file has been removed after a malware scan, leaving behind him a startup item or the registry entry pointing to a file that does not exist.
    It might be a removal of malicious software or an application not installed.  The entry may have a curious looking name since it was probably generated at random when the malware was installed. If you search your system for the referenced file, you may not find.
    Windows attempts to load this file but cannot locate because the file has been deleted for most probably during an analysis of the malware. However, an orphaned associate of remainders of startup parameter or registry entry and tells Windows to load the file when you start or connection.
    So you should delete the referenced entry Windows stop trying to load or run the file. It may or may not be included in the registry, but you can find it.  Autoruns (see below) you get the elements no matter where it is.

    You must be sure to solve the problem and not just fix the symptom of the problem by simply relieving your message - system is not a fix (there is a difference).

    If you just locate and uncheck the item in msconfig, which disables the element but does not remove the reference to the element of false starting your computer.   The msconfig program is not a Startup Manager, that's a troubleshooting tool.  Disabling things in msconfig to put an end to the messages and think that your problem is solved is short-sighted and leave behind him a sloppy XP configuration.  Just disable the display of a start-up error message should not count as a 'solution' to the problem.
    If you are comfortable editing the registry, you can find and remove the reference directly from there or remove it using a popular third-party tool called Autoruns.  The problem can always be found in the registry well.
    Before making any changes to your registry by hand or with third-party tools, don't forget to first make a backup of the registry. There is no cancellation or exit without saving the option in regedit.
    Here is a link to a popular registry backup tool:
    You can also use the Autoruns to find the element of start remains little matter where he's hiding.  Autoruns does not install anything on your computer.  It will display all startup locations where the reference may be then you can turn it off or remove it completely.  Here is the download link for Autoruns:
    Run Autoruns.exe and wait that he at the end of the filling of the list of entries.
    When the Autoruns is finished scanning your system, it will say "Ready" in the lower left corner.  Autoruns can be a little intimidating to first if you have never seen it before because it displays a lot of information
    .  You are really interested only a few sections.
    The problem is usually to start the system or the user startup entries, then click the connection tab and see if the startup item is there.
    Scroll through the list and look for a boot entry associated files in the error message.
    If you can't find on the connection tab, look in any tab.
    You can also click file, search to search for logon, or any tab for all or part of the name of the element.
    Right-click on the offending entry and choose Remove.  If you are not sure what it is, you can simply turn off (uncheck the entry), reboot, and if the problem is resolved and things work normally and everything works fine, then delete the offending entry.  If you don't see it in Autoruns, you may edit the registry and remove the item from your startup folder it.  Autoruns shall display the same information however.

    I tried to install Windows 8 on my PC that was dual-boot WIndows 7 from 2 different hard disks and would choose between the 2 at the start.  So I deleted the partition of a Windows installation and installed Windows 8. Everything seemed to work fine, I could start and choose between Windows 8 or 7 and both worked well. Then, I updated a graphics driver Win 8 and caused problems with Win starting 8 by a black screen and nothing else. There is no restore point so I decided to start by deleting the partition.
