Hi guys im new to these forums so please help me! i recently formated a western digital elements protable hard drive and ever since ive for mated it seems liekw hen its plugged in my computer gets blue screens is this because the hard drive how do i got about fixing this problem or if its something else please help thanks!
It blue screens when the hard drive is plugged in, right? Simply plug the hard drive in and let it blue screen. Also, does it blue screen immediately after you plug it in? Or is it triggered by something or happen at a specific time?
Well that error can be caused by a number of different things, most commonly hard disk errors, conflicting drivers, or fritzy hardware. Sometimes these things resolve themselves. Ain't that convenient? If the problem occurs again though, let us know and we'll attempt to hold your hand through the whole thing.
okay so i got a blue screen on boot up today right after i installed ncleaner to try and get rid of some registry.. it found something like 1746 registry errors so i didnt trut it deleting all that so i backed up the registry and on the boot up i got a blue screen it said something like process1 with some other stuff... then it did a memory dump so i restarted the comp and it seemed to boot up a bit faster then normal and its been fine now. all try restarting it and see if ig et the blue screen again would u reccomend using the abck up for my registry? or keeping it like this ?
If no new problems occur, and all your programs run fine, than you may as well leave the registry as it is now. If you got the blue screen before modifying the registry than restoring it won't do much to fix it.
it juts booted up fine took about a minute and 10 before i touched anythign and everything had popped up and all the icons were normal so id say its fine ? but could u give me a step by step to run chkdsk thing ? i think i want to try it now...
