Turn your pc on press DELETE to get BIOS. Change your boot order for CD ROM to boot first. Press F10 to save. Put XP cd in and when it asks boot from cd do so. After checking your system you will have 3 options. Do number 2 "Repair" and wait for it to load. You maybe asked for password just hit enter if you dont have one. Then select which windows you want to use thats normally 1. C:Windows press 1

at C:\Windows type

chkdsk /p and press enter let it run and then reboot you should be fixed. If so, at desktop goto My Computer>rightclick and open manage then event viewer> applications. On the right hand side look for WinLog under the Source tab and double click on it. Scroll down and if you see any bad sectors back up your HDD and replace it. You can ghost over your old HD to a new one but thats another story.

Hope this helped

It also could be a bad video card.

Rather than type chkdsk /p (which is read-only and won't fix anything), type chkdsk /r.

Most often STOP 0x8e errors are driver or malware related. Since the ATI drivers were cited in one of the error messages, I'd suggest uninstalling your ATI graphics drivers and controls (both from Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel - and from the Device Manager.

Then download the latest version of the ATI drivers available from http://www.ati.com/ and install them.

chkdsk /p does fix a boot volume error. I have done it many a time hamluis

From this link: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb491051.aspx
(the bold is my addition)

chkdsk [drive:] [/p] [/r]

Parameters

none

Used without parameters, chkdsk displays the status of the disk in the current drive.

drive :

Specifies the drive that you want chkdsk to check.

/p

Performs an exhaustive check even if the drive is not marked for chkdsk to run. This parameter does not make any changes to the drive.

/r

Locates bad sectors and recovers readable information. Implies /p.

Note * The chkdsk command requires the file Autochk.exe. If it cannot find it in the startup directory (\%systemroot%\System32, by default), it will attempt to locate it on the Windows Installation CD. If you have a multiboot computer, be sure you are issuing this command from the drive containing Windows.
