Windows 7: BSOD (registry error) after check disk, after memory failure

BSOD (registry error) after check disk, after memory failure

What a mess...

I came to my PC this morning only to find it restarting after the BIOS continuously. I peeked in the case and the DRAM LED was lit on my ASUS mb. I pulled one of the memory sticks out, restarted, and it booted right into windows (I'm running win 7 x64 ultimate). I wanted to run memtest86 to check the rest of my memory, so I booted that from a flash drive, test was OK. When I booted from the flash drive, it changed my boot order and disabled my RAID1 for some reason, so it booted to one of the RAID drives (except now it wasn't in raid, it was just an IDE drive). When it got into Windows it did all the 'installing new hardware' stuff on my hard drives. But it was running fine. I knew what happened, so I shut down, went into the BIOS and put the RAID back on, and booted back into Windows. It booted fine, except that there was a red X on my internet connection icon in the tray (even though I could get to web sites just fine). Network control center said the "dependency service or group failed to start". A few seconds later, a msg pops up saying the firewall is off and should be turned on. It ran stable at this point, had it on for about an hour.

Then to fix the red X thing, I read that maybe I should try a check disk. So i went to do it in windows on my C drive and it said I couldn't do it while the drive is active or whatever, so it would schedule it for the next startup. Sure enough it ran, found some problems, and finished. Now when it gets into windows, I still have the red X, but after about a minute it blue screens me with "REGISTRY_ERROR" and code 51.

I can go into safe mode w/ networking just fine for unlimited time. But anytime I go into real windows I get the bsod.

I tried to do a system restore that was made a few days ago, but it never successfully finishes. I read that the 'network location awareness' svc needs to be on (which it isn't), and when I try to start it, I get an error. From the event viewer "The Network Location Awareness service terminated with service-specific error %%-1073741288".

Just hope I don't need to reinstall the o/s to fix this.

Thanks.

Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Scan the system for possible virus infection with the following programs.
Let us know the results.

Well, a stop 0x51 BSOD is either a registry integrity issue, or a security threat, or some file system corruption, or hardware error.

When SFC is free of errors, there is no registry violation.

As both the virus scans are good too, there is no security thread, as we can assume.

Test your Hitachi HDD with the Drive fitness test tool.

Test your RAM modules for possible errors.
How to Test and Diagnose RAM Issues with Memtest86+
Run memtest for at least 8 passes, preferably overnight.

If it start showing errors/red lines, stop testing. A single error is enough to determine that something is going bad there.

Let us know the results.

I couldn't do drive fitness cause MS installer won't work in safe mode, I could just unplug the sata cable i guess and remove it from the system.

Memtest86+ ran 10 passes, no errors.

Seatool for dos: SeaTools | Seagate download
  • Burn it in a blank cd. boot from the CD, click on "Accept", wait for it to finish detecting the drives, then in the upper left corner select "Basic Tests", then select "Long Test" and let it run.
  • Before starting the test, boot into the BIOS. Set the storage controller mode to IDE/SATA. Otherwisw it will not detect the HDD (as it is in RAID setup).
    • When the test is done, Boot into the BIOS again, and set the storage controller mode back to its present status, otherwise windows will refuse to boot.
    • Personally I consider RAID is always problematic with Windows 7. But as you are using it, you must have any real necessity I guess?

Did you mean to test my Hitachi drive or the WD drives my o/s is on?

I don't really have a need for the RAID, I lost all my data once and never wanted to do it again. Maybe I should just forget raid and do backups to flash drives or something.

If you dont need RAID, your first step should be disabling RAID.

And, if possible, perform disc check on all your HDDs.
