Today I went to dust out my computer and lubricate the fans. Eventually I got up and bumped into the table, causing the system to shake. As I was testing it to make sure I had everything together, I turned it on and it didn't work. I had to do a dirty shutdown and unplug it because I could not turn it off. What I had forgotten was that I unplugged the PSU's 4-Pin adapter from the mobo. I'm not sure if it was this or the shaking, but I am experiencing trouble booting XP now.
Every time I boot, I get the BSoD. I get multiple errors but I get an error with NTFS enough to say that I've corrupted the file system... I think... Yet it somehow makes it to the Windows login screen and can even start to log in...?
I can't boot to safe mode as I also get the BSoD. Can't run to the Recovery Console, it also gives me this error.
I tried my recovery disks but they aren't compatible with my computer.

I run an HP Pavilion a210n (I know, it's freaking old).

Not completely sure if it's my file system considering it gets to the login screen but I think it is.
I get a variety of BSoDs including
PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA
MULTIPLE_IRP_COMPLETE_REQUESTS
IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL

and I think it messed up my PCI driver too as it's mentioned that in the BSoD once.

Any help would be appreciated.

Take the drive out...place it in another system as anything but the boot drive...see if you can run chkdsk /r on it (via Explorer).

I've had a corrupted NTFS file system and I wound up just doing a clean install after my delete/new partition/install routine, IIRC.

All of the error messages you posted...point to driver problems. Those can usually be overcome.

A corrupt file system...in my experience...is a different matter.

Would I lose any data? Did you?

EDIT:
Oh wait, chkdsk doesnt do that.
Nevermind.

Can't run to the Recovery Console, it also gives me this error.

Sorry - but three questions?
Are you saying you cannot boot to an installation CD?
If the errror is identical does the BIOS setup boot order have CDROM before HDD?
Is this a PATA or SATA HDD?

I cannot boot to the recovery console in my computer. I also can't boot to the recovery disks I own because they are not compatible with my computer.
Yes, CDROM is before HDD.
It is PATA.
I'm not sure about setup disks, I will try now and post when I'm done.

How about some more info...

This bit about "recovery disks" not compatible with the system...interests me.

Yeah, it says something like "These Recovery Disks Are Not Compatible With This HP Computer" or something.
Also forgot to post about the setup disks.
I can't find them.
