Hi There,
I am stuck on the "Blue Screen of Death" and in no way able to get into windows.
1.System tries to Repair the File , but fails.
2. System Restore not happening due to Less memory in c:
3. Recovery through Imaging not possible as i have not created any image of my system.
4. System Diagnosis does not shows any error , neither memory nor Hdd.

Also LKGC not happening neither we are able to get into Safe Mode of any kind.

And i do not want to loose my data on other drives. is there a way i can format and reinstall the OS in C: without any changes to others.
Please HElp.

First off - make backups in future!

Sermon over, you seem to be describing that you have multiple drives, one holding the O/S and the other(s) for data.

If this is true (and they aren't in a software RAID), then you should be able to reinstall the O/S with no problem and not affect data. If they are physically separate drives, then you can even disconnect them during the install and then reconnect afterwards to be totally sure. Or hook them up to another machine and make copies first.

Hi ,
I do not have physically seperate drives as in Ext Hdd or flash drives.
The Word 'Drives" i used over here is with reference to my Partitions of my computers HDD which is partitoned into 4 , MY C: , D:, E: and F: . where i have all the OS and systems files in C: and rest of the Data in others.

Thanks & Regards,
RPrasad

Hi,
Thanks for your post , but i am a 63 yrs old man and will not be able to understand the partitoning fundamentals which u just mentioned. sorry for that !!!
The Diagnosis which i ran was a system inbuit diagnosis , i went for Complete System diagnosis where it will test all the H/W components One by one.

See i can't delete anything from any drives as i am unable to get my windows.
2nd , its Windows7 which i am using , and if i initiate the reinstallation process , it will not give me any option to control the instaltion process, it will simply wipe of everything and give me a fresh System with OS but no old data.
Is there a particular screen which i will get during installing OS where i can choose to format and install OS on a particular drive without any changes to other?
Please Help.

When you say "system diagnosis" didn't show any errors in the memory, what did you use to test the RAM? Did you run memtest86? If not, I strongly suggest you do that first before anything else.

You can reinstall windows on the OS partition, but since you are running out of space on the drive you will most likely need to delete most of what is on that partition. If you choose to format the drive during the install process, it will not touch the other partitions. If you choose to install over the previous install, it will save the old files in a folder called Windows old.

If you have a spare or external hard drive, you could install an OS on it and back up all the important files.

The easiest thing for you to do is to buy a new hard drive, make it your primary drive, install Windows on it and then you can access the files on the old drive.

If you can't buy a new drive, then you can try to reinstall Windows this way: http://www.maximumpc.com/article/how-tos/how_repair_fau... instead of the normal way, click upgrade. This will not delete anything except for your system files according to the article.

Hi,

I tried the steps in the weblink {http://www.maximumpc.com/article/how-tos/how_repair_fau...} which was sent by you.
There were 2 methods , 1. if you are able to get into window
2. If windows is not reachable.

Since i was not getting windows , hence i tried the 1st step.
After runnig the "Sfc scannow" command it got the Mssg:

"Windows resource protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some of the items.
details are included in the CBS.log windir\logs\cbs\cbs.log. For example

c:\windows\logs\cbs\cbs.log.

i am now sure what is this all about and how should i proceed further.
Also , now i am getting STOP: c000021a {Fatal system error}
status of 0x00000000 (0xc0000001 0x001003f0) , sometimes when i boot my system.

Please Help.

Thanks and Regards,
RP

I have a feeling that you may not be able to resolve the problem by yourself. Troubleshooting is a slow, non-deterministic, and generally futile activity with windows.

But if you intend to attempt a resolution by yourself, then I think the best bet would be to take the u_gonna_squeal way. Buying a hard drive is relatively economical and it will definitely ensure that your system is back online, and then you can attempt to connect with the corrupt drive as your secondary drive.

Good luck.
