Hello,

First result on Microsoft Search:

"Stop 0x00000050" Error Message When USB Device Is Connected

Talks about having a USB device connected that is causing the issues. I would check for a BIOS update and update to the chipset drivers.

Cheers,
Mak

well i have tryed 3 different HDD and it always ends in the same fing issue random freezes and no real answer to why

k looking at screen now

Windows could not start because of an error in the software
Please report this problem as :
load needed DLLs for kernel.
Please contact your support person to report this problem.

now i have worked with computers for a several years now and i have never seen this error pop before. i am going to go ahead and wipe the HDD and reinstall windows but since this is a recurring problem if anyone else has an opinion on what could be going wrong i would gladly like to hear it.

Hello,

Sounds like the kernel is corrupt. It fails at loading the kernel so that would be a serious issue. If a repair install doesnt work then a format and reinstall would be your best bet.

Cheers,
Mak

Hello,

It didnt just happen. You said yourself that this started to happen a while back. The kernel could have been compromised the first time it happened and finally got so corrupted it couldnt boot. A virus or malware is usually the culprit.

Cheers,
Mak

Hello,

It could have happened from a application install. If you try to force a driver install. It could have just been that the system got so worn down from all sorts of application install and uninstalls that this happened. If you only use the Windows Add/Remove programs the Registry will become cluttered and can cause this as well.

There are so many things that can go wrong with a PC. Even if it is not connected to the Internet. Could have gotten it from a CD that you used to transfer files over to it with. If you don't have a Anti-virus installed and up to date even a CD or DVD that you used to put software on there with could have caused this.

Cheers,
Mak
