REGISTRY_ERROR BSOD Stop 0x51 Problem!


P

Phant

Here's my situation... I recently had a crash, restarted and now every
time I boot, I receive a "REGISTRY_ERROR" BSOD. It happens in all boot
situations: Safe Mode, Last Known Config, etc. My system came with a
"Windows XP SP2" Recovery Disk, but when I load it and it reaches the
point where it looks for another previously installed Windows XP, it
BSOD's again. I'm at a total loss for what to do and haven't been able
to find any help elsewhere. I'd really appreciate a solution, even if
it looks like I'm going to have to start from scratch as a result.

You could try recovering from a corrupted registry, but to do this
requires that you have a real operating system disk and not a recovery
disk.

If you don't have access to a real operating system disk that matches
your installed system (XP Home or Pro OEM), then you will either need
to take the machine to a professional computer repair shop or use the
recovery disk to restore your computer to factory condition.

When I boot from my recovery disk, I never have any options of any
kind... it jumps straight into some sort of install process and when it
tries to detect previous installations of windows XP it blue screens.

What kind of computer do you have - Compaq, HP, Sony, etc. - and what
type of "recovery disk" is it?

You should ask Cyberpower what their recovery disk is - it might be an
OEM version of XP, but you most definitely would get options if it
were.

It sounds like you are being dumped directly into a Repair Install and
your system is too damaged for that to work. Unfortunately, there is no
way I can be sure what is really happening without looking at the
machine. Your best course of action at this point is probably to have a
professional look at it or do a clean install of Windows.

Thanks a bunch Malke, I guess getting a professional to look at it will
be my next step.
