S205 Blue Screen of Death

Hello,

 

Have a problem with my S205, Windows 7 updated through windows update and restarted upon restart I am getting The Blue Screen, 

 

I tried to boot in safe mode etc.. But did not help, still got the blue screen

 

I tried windows repair but it failed 

 

I know I had system restore but it can't find it 

 

and even tried to reinstall windows but it ain't happening as the windows version that came with the netbook is asking for a driver which it doesn't have 

 

any thoughts?

Re: S205 Blue Screen of Death

Problem Solved! 

 

The solution was simple. I noticed that the error was caused by lenovo ee boot optimizer  "fbfmon.sys"

 

so my my solution -

 

boot it windows repair tool 

selected command prompt 

navigated to windows/system32/drivers/ 

found "fbfmon.sys" 

 

and simply deleted it  from the command line del fbfmon.sys

 

rebooted the system 

 

windows starts as normal 

 

unistalled lenovo eeboot optimizer 

 

downloaded  eeboot optimizer  from lenovo and reinstalled it 

 

hope this helps others! 

 

and i know what DOS means :smileytongue:

Re: S205 Blue Screen of Death

After further investigation I found out that it is not entirely Lenovo ee boot optimizer alone that caused the problem but also windows update.

 

What happened Windows downloaded and updated as normal and while in the procedure of restarting to finish updates boot kicked in and in the mix of things something  went wrong,,

Re: S205 Blue Screen of Death

Followed Macphesto's post:

 

Booted with Ubuntu Live CD,
navigated to Windows/System32/drivers,
delete fbfmon.sys.

 

Boots fine since, but I wouldn't  bother re-installing the crappy software.

Re: S205 Blue Screen of Death

I am following these instructions but it is not working.

I am at X:\Windows\System32\drivers
(I don't know why X:\, but C:\ doesn't works when i try to get into the windows folder)

when i enter del fbfmon.sys i get the response that it could not find the file. What am I doing wrong?

Re: S205 Blue Screen of Death

just to update i entered dir fbfmon.sys /s and it could not locate the file.

to be safe i tried it in every folder and subfolder, and cannot find the file.

I thought maybe I deleted it already and didn't notice, but I still get BSOD on windows start up (problem also started after doing the EE boot optimizer)

Re: S205 Blue Screen of Death

If you don't find "fbfmon.sys", you'll need to find it on another drive.  I too didn't find "fbfmon.sys" at first and I was on "Drive X:".  Had to hunt for the drive that "fbfmon.sys" was on by changing the drive one letter at a time.  I started with C: and went up from there.  Found "fbfmon.sys" on Drive E: by typing "E:\" (without the quotes) and then pressing ENTER.  Then go to path given in the above post.

Re: S205 Blue Screen of Death

Thanks a lot! To add even more to this solution, I was not able to switch to another drive in the startup recovery console and I was stuck on "X:\".

Meddling around, I found using, "dir e:\windows\system32\drivers\fbfmon.sys" gave me the listing for the folder with fbfmon.sys inside it, then it was just a matter of doing

"del e:\windows\system32\drivers\fbfmon.sys"

Again thank you everyone who posted here!
