Tips To Address Windows® Installation Error 7
What are the solutions to Windows installation error 7?
When you install Windows XP, you would receive the following error message “ntkrnlmp.exe could not be loaded Error Code 7”. While setting up Windows, you have a text-mode option. Sometimes, during this text-mode option, the set-up might stop responding and you might receive this error message that says “The error code is 7”. Due to these error messages, you might not be able to install Windows. Mainly, these errors occur when there are incorrect settings in the computer's basic input/output system (BIOS) configuration. Also, when one or more of the random access memory (RAM) modules that are installed in the computer are faulty, you might experience this error.
Following are measures to address Windows installation error 7:
- Restore the Default BIOS Settings
- Remove the Faulty RAM
- Things to be kept in mind
Restore the Default BIOS Settings
In order to resolve the error message while installing Windows, one solution is that you can restore the computer's BIOS to its default settings. For restoring BIOS, you need to have the details on the BIOS settings. For getting that information and to make corresponding changes, you might take the help of computer documentation or you might also contact the manufacturer of the computer. In order to confirm that the computer's BIOS is the latest one, you need to contact the computer manufacturer for enquiring about the latest BIOS update that is available for the computer.
Remove the Faulty RAM
For addressing the error message, you need to take out the memory modules installed in the computer. If the error message “The error code is 7” is displayed again after you remove the memory module, remove a different memory module. This process might require you to restart your computer several times in order to identify the specific memory module that is not working correctly. You might also contact the manufacturer of the computer or view the documentation that is included with your computer for adding and removing RAM to the computer.
Restoring the computer's BIOS to its default settings involves changing the computer's complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) settings and it also alerts the computer's BIOS. Improper changing to the BIOS of your computer would result in serious issues. Therefore, you need to be very careful while restoring the computer's BIOS to its default settings. Also, while removing the memory modules that are installed in the computer, you need to leave enough RAM for the computer to start and run Windows.
