ok, heres the scenario.

im running Win XP Pro, azureus, java etc.

im downloading about 7 things on azureus. i leave the comp on overnight. i go to college in the morning, but i check my comp before i leave, everythng is placid, downloading.

i get back from college, and my comp is off, i boot up and while my bootscreen is showing, my comp reboots. DAMN, i says to myself.

(what happened was, my dad just clicked shut down without knowing azureus was running, with no remorse for anything i may have not saved etc. he does this alot, and it annoys me. he hates how i leave my comp on, wasting power)

ok, ive tried everything. the recovery console on the XP install disc, got nowhere with that.

i can get into safemode, but kaspersky wont work in safemode :thumbsup: i scanned using spybot and adaware just in case but found nothing. i dont think its a virus, i just DONT KNOW WHAT IT IS !!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?

can anyone help ?!?!!?

thanks!

ok, i cant defrag :thumbsup: because im using diskeeper, and diskeeper of course cant run in safe mode, and of course i cant uninstall anything in safe mode either..... ugh.

oh, and when i tried "safe mode with networking" it rebooted, like it does normally....now im thinking maybe the problem lies with something to do with the networking... maybe an lsp problem, or something perhaps ?? i dont know...

It may be something to do with port forwarding on your router or a corruption of the ip address of your computer.

It can also be that the firewall is blocking the port you need.

Thats a repair install and it should help your problem.

You will need to do all the updates afterwards as your system files will be overwritten to the state of your XP CD when it was issued.

Your installed programs should be ok but the defaults will be restored. Have a look at How to perform an in-place upgrade (reinstallation) of Windows XP and How to Repair Install.

yeah, it says only do that if you cant get into safe mode.

I CAN get into safe mode, meaning, there must be something i can do other than that ......

if i can get into safemode, cant i just like rewrite my boot sector, or rewrite my master boot record or something ?

ok, i found out that the error i'm getting, is because the hardrive is full or something.

(i took the reboot automatically feature off, to leave me with the bluescreen error)

heres the bluescreen error:

-------------

a problem has been detected blah blah take these steps:

check you have adequate disk space, drivers, video driver etc

check for bios updates, check for memory stuffl ike caching or shadowing, and disable them, then some blah about safe mode.

tech data:

*** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xBAEC2B52, 0xF8B4E400, 0xF8B4E0FC)

-------------------------------------------

so...something tells me these are....hexidecimal values for the epicentre of the error ?? or at least something to do with the error I'm getting.... ?

If you can get into safe mode navigate to your C: drive, right click and click properties. See how much free space you have. It should be at least 10%.

If your error is because the hard drive is full, download and run CCleaner. It will clean out your temp files and clear up some space. If that doesn't allow you to operate normally, try uninstalling some programs that are not used frequently. You can always reinstall once you can boot normally.
