have a toshiba 5105s607. WinXP. I started having problems with it when the text seemed to start shaking(I was working in a photo program at the time), then pc went down. When I restarted I got a blue screen saying ...

" A problem has been detected and windows has shut down to prevent damage to your computer...check for viruses on your computer, remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is probably configured and terminated. Run chkdsk/f to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart.

Technical information
***stop : 0x0000007B (0xf8981524,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

Can you get into Safe Mode? Or have you tried "last known good configuration" from the Safe Mode menu?

Insert your Windows XP CD into the CD drive, and then restart the computer. Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD drive if you are prompted. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the Recovery Console. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

Type: chkdsk /r

It's important to have a space before the "/".

To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

STOP 0x7b (shorthand for stop : 0x0000007B (0xf8981524,0xc0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)) is an Inaccessible Boot Device error
Here's a link to a description: http://aumha.org/a/stop.php#0x7b

It states that it can be caused by drivers for the storage subsystem (your hard drives) or by malware.
I'd also suspect that a corrupt file system or a failing hard drive could cause this.

Toshiba's don't have a way to access the Recovery Console for their restore CD's (they're just a Ghost based image) - so you'd have to download a copy of the Recovery Console ISO to get into the Recovery Console ( http://www.thecomputerparamedic.com/files/rc.iso ). You'll have to use an ISO burner to burn the files to the CD in the correct order.

With my Toshiba you had to press F12 as it was booting in order to access the boot menu. On some it's a screen with 4 icons near the bottom and you use the arrow keys to cursor between them (looks the same as the boot screen - but has the underlines under the icons) - on others it's a traditional boot menu where you can select your boot device.
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.
