I'm running Windows XP and when I turned on my computer this morning it displayed the screen informing me thatt Windows had not shut down properrly and gave me the options of how to start it:
Safe Mode with networking
Safe Mode with Command Prompt
Last Known Good Configuration
Start Windows Normally
I tried each in turn but before Windows could load, it rebooted the system and returned to the same screen described above.
I then pressed F8 at Startup to enter the Advanced Options Menu and disabled automatic restart on system failuree. This time when trying to load Windows, I got the BSOD and the following message:
'A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.
Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make suree it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xFA2F4528, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000 0x00000000)'
I don't have the Windows XP recovery disc and can't create one as my only CD burner is on the damaged computer. I've tried restarting to no affect and don't know how to perform virus checks or anything without entering Windows first. I didn't install anything new yesterday so don't know what might have caused this.
Any help would be very much appreciated!
