)(*&$)(#@*&$)(#@%&(#@&%)($#@&%)($*&%

Man, I am seriously pissed off. Ok, so my dad went out and bought this new mouse, which is like optimized for Vista or some sh!t like that. Then, he wanted to play around with it so he went on my computer and did something. When I came back, my computer just wouldn't boot: safe mode, last known config, normal...all didn't work. This has come at an ESPECIALLY bad time since I was in the middle of college apps and what not and now I'm just completely :thumbsup: over. ANYWAY, i hope this isn't too bad of a problem, but here are the details of the errors I got (i'm using my dads laptop):

So instead of selecting the Windows Home XP, I went to Windows Recovery Console (something like that);

I got this blue screen and it told me a couple of things:

A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

PROCESS1_INTIALIZATION_FAILED

If this is the first time...(and it tells me what I should do, blah blah blah, which doesn't work)

Technical information:

*** STOP: 0x0000006B (0xc0000033, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

I looked around and haven't found an answer, but there were people who have asked about it.

PLZ HELP, I need to get my early response app in VERY SOON.

What is the make/model of the computer? Do you have an XP or recovery disk?

It's an HP and it didn't come with a recovery disk. The problem is, I fear that the only way to get it working again is to reformat, which is basically the only thing it allows me to do now...

These are my options:

BOOT MENU [ESC]
BIOS SETUP [F1] (to look at sys info)
SYSTEM RECOVERY [F10] (which basically reformats my C drive)

Installed Memory: 512 MB/PC2-3200

First Channel Device 0: [ST340014AS]
First Channel Device 1: [ST3160811AS]
Second Channel Device 0: [TSSTcorp CD-ROM TS]
Second Channel Device 1: [SAMSUNG CFRW/DVD S]

CPU type: Intel )R_ Celeron ® D CPU 2.80 GHz
CPU Speed: 2800MHz/533MHz
Cache RAM 256KB

Basically, after showing the HP blue screen with the options on the bottom, the screen goes black and only gives me a cursor, but I can't type anything. So, unless anyone else has any suggestions, I guess I'm just going to have to reformat my C drive...*sigh*

Without an XP disk that seems to be your best option

Welcome to BC....

Well, there is a way to get the recovery disks and here it is:

HP and Compaq Desktop PCs - Obtaining a Recovery CD or DVD set
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/generic...ocname=bph07143

There might be a small charge but I am sure that you can handle that for the well being of the computer, one other thing is to read the rules here there seems to be something in there about language as in bad.... We do have some real influential type children here....

You can try file recovery software. There are some free versions that claim to work, but I'm not familiar with any of them.

Here's a link to a description of the error message: http://www.osronline.com/ddkx/ddtools/bccodes_8gfb.htm

This error can be caused by any part of the disk subsystem, including bad disks, bad or incorrect cables, mixing different ATA-type devices on the same chain, or drives that are not available due to hardware regeneration.

It can also be caused by a missing file from the boot partition, or by a driver file that has been disabled from the Drivers tab by mistake.


Looks like a disk problem to me. If you can get into Windows or the Recovery Console, I'd suggest running chkdsk /f /r
If you can't get into it, then I'd suggest downloading a free copy of the Seatools for DOS CD-ROM ISO file from here: http://www.seagate.com/www/en-us/support/d...ols/seatooldreg Then use an ISO burner to burn the ISO and create a bootable CD. Boot the system from it and run the tool to test your drive.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.
