    Right now I'm on a laptop because my computer has just failed to reboot. Yesterday i was reading the Detective Conan manga and listening to music when the screen poped up. I cut my computer off and turned it back on but everytime it gets to the Windows logo it goes to the blue screen. I have Windows XP home edition and it looks like it might be a virus but if I can't get to my desktop how am I supposed to scan for virus?

    You need to specify the error code (STOP 0x00000__)

    Here's a good site where you can find more info about these errors and troubleshooting steps.



    A basic TS step is to try to go into safe mode (press F8 before Windows starts booting up).

    It may be a boot sector virus issue...

    I'd use a portable windows cd to boot and scan for viruses, if you can download torrents check this:



    The image file extension is .uif so you'll need magicISO (freeware).

    Since safe mode is not working I don't see any other options (other than trying a repair Windows XP installation / parallel installation / or format - reinstall).

    It seems to me like a hardware failure. A driver may be corrupted, same thing happened to me. Just use your XP repair disk

    It may be a hardware or a software issue, we can't tell for sure just because of that BSOD, did you guys read the info about that specific error in the page I posted ?

    If he has valuable information in that hard drive, he should try the method I suggested or a repair/parallel intalation.

    No offense to you but your decision to buy a new drive wasn't very wise and a waste of money, the very fact that it could BSOD means the drive is bootable. The Blue screen is a Windows OS error, all you would have had to do is get a copy of Windows, change the BIOS to boot from cd rom insert> and reformat and reinstall... Comp you just wasted some cash, next time you can PM me... I'm an IT.

    Peace

    Well I did reformat but since my info and programs and such were all gone I decided to just get a new one. My old one was 3 years old with 256 MB of ram and 38 Gigs of space, so I just ordered a new one instead of just upgrading my old one.
     
  16. I do recall saying that earlier in this thread. He didnt even need to reformat he could have just repaired the boot files or repaired.


    But w/e they have money to waste so be it.

    The RAM doesn't have anything to do with the hard drive, are you saying that you ordered a new computer ? :_ Lol-. w/e.

    Lol, sorry i'm just used to saying the RAM since it's just an awful amount for a amv maker.


    Yeah I ordered a new one, that's the bottom line: New one is being shipped and old one is being scrapped.



    Edit: Delusion, I tried to do that but it didn't work, said some folder couldn't be created or some such nonesense.
