Thanx Arrgee!

Cant find that specific error code though, and I dont get the INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE message as well.
Still puzzled!!

I would try the second method suggested on the Microsoft site (even if you are not getting the INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE error included)

Thanx m8 @ ArrGee !
I'll try it!

Although further googling seems to say it may have been a mobo short!

OK, tried reformating the hdd, but when i load windows it gets to about 94& and freezes everytime!

Cant find anything for this specific error code anywhere?

Oh and for the copy and paste ppl out there, the code actually is

0xFA2C3640

Thanx

If you are going to reformat the drive then load on Windows, I would recommend this for the formatting stage. Works well every time I have used it (about 25 times)

Thanx ArrGee! That worked a treat!

Everything is fine now. That microsoft site was useless on this occasion.
It gave about 7 different solutions to the problem, but nothing specificaly for my error code and every solution was basicly reformat and reinstall xp!!!

Cheers mate!
