vista blue screens even in safe mode

February 22, 2011 at 09:45:19
Specs: Windows Vista, 2 GB Ram
Hello, My computer was working fine, then I ran RegCure and something went really wrong. When I rebooted my machine all services were disabled. I finally was able to get into the services and enable them, but then when I logged in, I just got a blank blue screen. No errors, nothing. Just a blank screen. I can't get into task manager or anything. Boy, is this frustrating. I disabled everything in startup. Still no luck. Any and all help - well I would appreciate it so much!
Thank you.
Joanne

It may just be best to have some one retrieve the valuable data off it and re-install vista. If you have a vista disk you could try the repair offered when you boot off the disk, but it only fixes certain startup issues. I don't really recommend registry cleaners especially for vista and win7.

Thank you for your reply. I was just surfing the net and found the following solution, which I tried. I have been working on this problem for two days and was ready to throw the thing out the window. It had nothing to do with reg cleaners or any other kind of utility. This solution was a life saver for me, so I would like to share it with you. Thanks again for your help. Here is the solution:

What worked for me was someone's suggestion to boot to safe mode with command prompt, type the MSCONFIG command, disable all startup programs and disable all services. By process of elimination, I found the culprits to be Windows Event Collection and Windows Event Logging. Still using MSCONFIG, I disabled them, re-booted, renamed \windows\system32\winevt\logs\system.evtx to
\windows\system32\winevt\logs\ystem.evtxOLD, re-booted, enabled the two previously disabled Windows Event services in MSCONFIG, re-booted. After logging in, checked Event Log in Control Panel/Admin to make sure it was working. MSCONFIG is a life saver

I would still stay away from registry cleaners. Glad you found a solution.
