Hi. My Windows Vista Ultimate x64 installation will not bootup. It started
only a few days ago after never having one before. A little after the splash
screen appears, I get a BSOD saying:
A problemhas been detected and windows has been shut dwon to prevent damage
to your computer.
Then it says restart if it is the first time and to make sure hardware is
***STOP: 0x00000050 (0xFFFFF980043BF018,0x0000000000000000,
*** CLFS.SYS - Address FFFFF9800005F511 base at FFFFF98000019000,
It just stays here until I hold the power button down to shut it off.
Oh, btw, I'm typing this on my laptop, incase anyone was wondering.
I looked CLFS up and it is the Common Log File System.
I also discovered that the PAGE_FAULT... sometimes means that the file is
not loaded into memory correctly. I put the hard drive in aa different pc
(one that can run vista x64) and I still got a BSOD, even though that pc has
xp pro running fine.
I assumed that this meant my memory was fine.
Also, when I attempt to boot from the vista disc, I BSOD as well, the same
error message. But I tried without the hard drive in, and it booted from the
disc, any clue why??
Anyway, I would greatly appreciate anyone's help, considering I need my
computer for school next week. Thanks in advance, Micheal.
