Problem Solved : Fixing Windows 7 Blue Screen Stop Error 0x0A Hardware Malfunctioning

Fixing Windows 7 Blue Screen Stop Error 0x0A Hardware Malfunctioning

This error is typically caused by faulty or incompatible hardware or software attempting to access a memory location without authorization. Suspect an incompatible driver, system service, virus scanner, or backup program.


1. Check if the system has been overclocked from factory. If it was, disable the overclocking feature. Otherwise, verify with CPU-Z the actual clock values.
Perform a clean boot:



  • Click on "Start" when your Windows 7 loads.

  • Type "msconfig" on the search bar and hit "Enter".

  • Go to the "Startup" tab and disable all the applications listed.

  • Then go to the "Services" tab and check mark the "Hide all Microsoft Service".

  • Click on "Disable all Services".

  • Click on Apply and restart the computer.


2. Test the computer and if no BSOD is shown, start re-enabling one by one each Service and each Startup application until you discover which one is causing the BSOD.
3. Run Windows Updates.
4. Run Dell PC Diagnostic
5. Check system BIOS version (update to the latest version if necessary)
6. Update the Chipset, Wireless Card and Video Card drivers
7. Change the Virtual Memory
from “Automatically Manage by Windows” to “Custom Size”. We recommend setting the Virtual Memory with a Minimum of 4066MB and a Maximum of12006MB.



Open System by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Maintenance, and then clicking System.





In the left pane, click Advanced System Settings.










On the Advanced tab, under Performance, click Settings.










Click the Advanced tab, and then, under Virtual memory, click Change.










Clear the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives check box.










Under Drive [Volume Label], click the drive that contains the paging file you want to change.




Click Custom size, type a new size in megabytes in the Initial size (MB) or Maximum size (MB) box, click Set, and then click OK.




We recommend setting the Virtual Memory with a Minimum of 4066MB and aMaximum of 12006MB.
If after completing these steps you still experience issues please send an e-mail to AWCC-Resolution_Experts@dell.com with your service tag, phone number and proper time to reach you and we will be contacting you shortly.

KB977165 update triggering Blue Screen Problem

KB977165 update triggering Blue Screen Problem



One of Microsoft’s “Patch Tuesday” security fixes is triggering a widespread “Blue Screen of Death” problem. The cause is not the update itself, but an existing infection. So far, reports suggest that this problem affects Windows XP and Windows Vista.

Once the update is applied and the system rebooted, Windows will bluescreen at boot. When booted to Safe Mode, the system will freeze.

Removing the update from the Windows Recovery Console or using live media will get the system booting again, at least until the update is reapplied.

I have found that the root cause is an infection of %System32%\drivers\atapi.sys, and that replacing this file with a clean version will get the system booting normally.

This is not the first time that an infection hitting atapi.sys has caused updates to trigger bluescreens. If you are running Windows and have not yet applied this update, make sure you scan your computer thoroughly for infections before applying this update. If you are experiencing this problem, get your computer to a professional that can replace the infected atapi.sys and clean any other malware from your computer.

DETAILED REPAIR INSTRUCTIONS
Using the Windows XP Recovery Console

1. Boot from your Windows installation CD


Insert your Windows installation CD and boot your computer. If your computer is not set to boot from CD first, you may need to reconfigure your BIOS or press a boot menu key (often F12, F8 or Esc). If you are unsure of how to do this, consult your favorite geek. As soon as the boot starts, you should see a message like “Press any key to boot from CD…” – press a key.

2. Start the Recovery Console


After the CD loads (it may take a minute), you will be presented with a few choices. One of these options is to start a recovery by pressing “R”. Press “R” to launch the Recovery Console.

  • You may be asked to choose a Windows installation. If so, choose the damaged installation (probably “1″).
  • You may be prompted for the Administrator password. If you do not have one, press “Enter”.


3. Identify your CD drive letter


You should now be at the command prompt. Enter the following command:

map

Look for the drive letter for your CD drive. It may look something like this:

D: \Device\CdRom0

In this case, your CD drive is “D:”.

4. Replace ATAPI.SYS


Enter the following, replacing “D:” with your CD drive:
cd system32\drivers
ren atapi.sys atapi.old
expand D:\i386\atapi.sy_


You should see the message “1 file(s) expanded.” – this indicates you have succeeded.

5. Reboot and scan for malware


Reboot your computer. With a little luck, your computer will now boot normally. Because this problem is caused by malware, you should immediately scan your computer with up-to-date antivirus software.

Resolving Blue Screen error 0x0000007B in Windows XP after installing KB977165

Blue Screen error 0x0000007B in Windows XP after installing KB977165



We have found that there is only one patch that requires un-installation to resolve the blue screen issue. KB977165 is the patch in question, the other patches do not seem to cause the blue screen behaviour and do not need to be uninstalled.
With that in mind, here's the updated solution steps:
1. Boot from your Windows XP CD or DVD and start the recovery console (see this Microsoft article for help with this step)
Once you are in the Repair Screen..
2. Type this command: CHDIR $NtUninstallKB977165$\spuninst

3. Type this command: BATCH spuninst.txt
4. When complete, type this command: exit

IMPORTANT: If you are able to uninstall the patch and get back into Windows, in order to stay protected you can use the following automated solution which secures your PC against the vulnerabilities that are resolved with KB977165 until you can successfully get the update installed without the blue screens.
Please see the link below for the article describing the vulnerability that is fixed with KB977165 and how you can get protected without installing the actual KB update:

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

In XCOM: Enemy Unknown, victory is sweet--but it's so much sweeter when it arrives after a heart-wrenching standoff. With each turn, the newest entry in this beloved strategy series heightens the sense of tension, and each defeat of a hovering alien craft thus becomes cause for celebration. But don't get too intoxicated by the faint scent of triumph: nothing is certain until you've ripped your last enemy to shreds. Getting cocky and rushing ahead is a fool's strategy, and until the alien threat is eliminated, your guard must remain up.

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3

Far Cry 3 returns the series to a tropical island setting, similar to the first game and unlike the second game, which took place in an African savanna setting. Players will assume the role of protagonist Jason Brody, a tourist who has been stranded on an island chain in the grips of violent local conflict for years. Jason has been separated from his girlfriend and, in his search for her, he will have to deal with a wide cast of mostly unstable characters who have been on these islands for some time

Far Cry 3 is a delightful and harsh tropical wonderland, crawling with wildlife and threatened by the pirates and drug runners that disrupt its peace. The troubled paradise you explore is colorful and wild, enticing you to investigate its ravines and discover new ways to enjoy the open-world playground sprawling in front of you. This is a game that ignites the desire to complete every last challenge and check out every last icon on your map. You gradually journey across the entirety of two sunny and sinful islands, hunting for rare game, speeding medicine to needy communities, and skinning sharks so that you might craft new wallets with their hides. Far Cry 3 is an excellent game, marred mainly by some irritating design elements and an inconsistent story that often defaults to generic "tribal" cliches to make an impact.

Samsung PC Studio - Manage Your Samsung Mobile Phone Data

Samsung PC Studio - Manage Your Samsung Mobile Phone Data


Samsung is one of the top 5 mobile phone manufactures in the world. It sold 235 million handsets in 2009 and 280 million in 2010. Rest assured that not all of these mobile phones are smartphones and, as any respectable manufacturer, Samsung has developed management applications for users owning GSM mobile phones.

No matter if you want to synchronize contacts, calendar items or emails, transfer files or back up your data and even create and send text messages, Samsung PC Studio is the official program to use. It supports synchronization with most email clients out there, including Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express, Lotus Notes and Lotus Organizer, so it allows you to easily transfer your contacts between mobile phone and computer.
Samsung PC Studio is also a great and handy tool if you intend to install Java or Symbian apps on your phone. Just drag and drop the file you wish to copy on your handset and you’re ready to go. You can also rip audio CDs, create music files and copy music files directly on your mobile phone within a few clicks.
Unfortunately, the interface lacks the ease-of-use by laying icons in front of your eyes with no descriptive text. That expands the time span needed to get familiar with the application and this brings nothing but frustration from the user's point of view. All functions are also listed under the “File” menu, but still, this isn’t the best interface a phone manager could receive.
Just like many other mobile phone suites out there, Samsung’s lets you connect the device to your PC using an USB cable, an infrared port, Bluetooth or a serial cable. You can easily create backups of your phone's data for safe keeping or to transfer it to another phone, connect your PC to the Internet using your handset, play and convert multimedia files and also create wallpapers for your Samsung phone.
Samsung PC Studio's Settings window refer to `Automatic conversion options` and Audio / Video conversion formats. You can choose from AAC and M4A as the default audio format and High / Medium or Low quality MP4 container files for the video side.
While not being the perfect app overall, Samsung PC Studio takes the edge off its competitors by providing the complete set of tools needed for the job.
