Windows XP Professional BSOD - Help!!

  Charlie Babbage 20:54 23 Feb 2008

I've got the infamous 'Blue Scrr hard-drive configureen of Death' problem. The computer will not start, not even in Safe Mode. The BSOD error message advises taking the following steps:

Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defrag or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration and check for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK/F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer.

Technical information:
*** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x832c3828,0xc0000102,0x00000000)

Question: how can you disable or uninstall if you can't even get the command prompt??!

This stop error means that your ntfs file system is corrupt (damage in the file system, bad hard drive data, corrupt SCSI or IDE drivers or a corrupt ntfs.sys file)

Repair XP by install over the top of existing system

1. Boot the computer using the XP CD. You may need to change the boot order in the system BIOS so the CD boots before the hard drive. Check your system documentation for steps to access the BIOS and change the boot order.

2. When you see the "Welcome To Setup" screen, you will see This portion of the Setup program prepares Microsoft Windows XP to run on your computer:

To setup Windows XP now, press ENTER.

To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R.

To quit Setup without installing Windows XP, press F3.

3. Press Enter to start the Windows Setup.

To setup Windows XP now and Repair Install , press ENTER.

DO NOT choose "To repair a Windows XP installation using the Recovery Console, press R", (you Do Not want to load Recovery Console).

4. Accept the License Agreement and Windows will search for existing Windows installations.

5. Select the XP installation you want to repair from the list and press R to start the repair.

6. Setup will copy the necessary files to the hard drive and reboot.

Do not press any key to boot from CD when the message appears.

Setup will continue as if it were doing a clean install, but your applications and settings will remain intact.

If it can't find an instaltion to repair DO NOT install as it will overwrite data on the drive.
