Blue screen of death! win32k.sys
Hi

I am experiencing BSOD: win32k.sys.

I could not boot into windows in any mode (safe mode...)

Is there any way I can fix this problem and boot into windows as I need to recover my files back?

Thanks in advance.

Try booting from your windows cd - you'll have to change the settings in BIOS setup to be able to do this. Restart, press Delete or sometimes F2 - in BIOS setup, change the boot sequence to cd first
Then in with the CD and boot up! Hopefully

I've seen this caused by two things

Faulty RAM

Bad windows installation

if you just need some files from there get a USB enclosure for your hardrive then connected to a nother computer.

also The behavior may occur if the win32k.sys is corrupted. Go to
C:\WINDOWS\System32 and rename the Win32k.sys file to Win32k.old and then
close the window. Now go back to the system32 folder and you will have a
new and non-corrupt Win32k.sys file

you can do that from another pc or from the recovery console

The Recovery Console is usually accessed from the original Windows installation CD. Alternatively, Recovery Console can be accessed from the boot menu but only if it has been preinstalled on your system.

so for you to rename that file the only way is if you have the windows CD. or do it from
another machine. or download a repair boot disk like UBCD4Win
