    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).

    I've tried safemode but the error came up again, this is the entire error message



    Stop: 0x0000007b (0xf9943528,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

    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.
