  • blue screen of death

    I could not log in to our old 2000 server this morning as the memorry was full, so I rebooted like normal.
    afterr the blue bar goes a cross loading windows 2000 there is an error message and a blue screen.


    STOP: c0000218 {Registry file failure}
    The registry cannot load the hive (file):
    \systemroot\system32\config\software or its log or alternative.
    It is corrupt, absent, or not writable.
    if this is the first time you've see this stop error screen, restart your computer, if this screen appers...

    Happy christmas

    Do you mean the disk is full?
    Have you tried booting into safe mode (F8 during startup)?

      Hope you have good backups. Check out this official Microsoft KB article on recovering from corrupted registries. Many links in that article fan out to other helpful articles. Such a lovely Christmas Gift. Diversity breeds character! Or early retirement...
