k so on my regular computer i turn off the surge protector without logging off and had no problems (it was 5:00 and i was tired ><) when i wake up i turn it on and it goes into the boot menu thingie with the optiond to go into safe mode, safe mode with networking, safe mode with command prompts, use last good configuration, or start windows normally. so i try every one of these multiple times and every time it goes to the same blue screen that says that windows ciuld not start because it might cause more damage, if you have any internet security, disk defragmentation, and check for any updated drivers. then it says run chkdsk /F to check for hard drive corruption, aqnd then restart my comp. Technical information Stop 0x00000023 (0x00190203, 0x82f65a50, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000). Unfortuantly i cant get asfer enough to do this so im thinkin im screwed. So i was just wondering if this was something i could fix or if i have to call someone and if so who (dont say ghostbusters -.-) thanks guys

While in Safe Mode go to Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore.
I believe he tried this already, as it says he tried all of the options. However usually safe mode and last known good config would help...

You need to boot up off the MS cd and go to the repair console. Once there you should be able to run a disk check. chkdsk /F should be the right command, if not i'll find out for you.

If the repair console does not work- I am affraid it is TAPS for the HD.
By MS cd he refers to the Microsoft Operating System CD. Place it in the
CD drive and boot the computer. It should open the CD to give you choices
-one of which will be the Recovery Console.

If this does not work, go to another computer and visit the site of the Manufacturer of the hard drive on you computer. Download the HD utility specific to that HD on a floppy disc. Place it in your computer and then boot up and follow the directions. This will scan the disc for errors and in some cases repair it. Maybe -just maybe- you will then be able to boot into safe mode or boot regular (Don't hold your breath though).

Let us know the results.

Yes but with the MS cd and the repair console, you have to have the password to the actual "Administrator" account. If you don't have that, then (you're SOL lol!!! j/k) maybe you can try Emergency Boot CD. It might allow you access to your comp.

That's 100% true... i hope you know the admin password, if you do not remember setting one just hit ENTER. If that doesn't work try typing admin

Hope that works...

Yeah but those might not work; I know they didn't for me when I had trouble with my XP.

Oh, or you could try something which some people might not agree with. Instead of hitting "r" to go to the repair console, hit the first one and it should bring you to a thing that says choose which to repair. Choose it and it'll look like it is re-installing ( I freakin panicked when I saw that, and it mioghta erased my SP2.....) then........ um........ I seem to have forgotten.... sorry :redface:

often times it's called a restore disc, if you bought your pc with it pre-loaded.
It has XP on it and the drivers to the computer.

If you had to buy XP separtely, that's the MS disc.

Your CPU is the Central Processing Unit... im saying to format the hard drive which means delete all the data on it and install xp again. But yes re load windows xp. :)

(you can't technically reload your CPU so u had the right idea, wrong name)
