So, I guess I didn't do enough research before shoving new RAM into my HP Pavillion zv6000 laptop running WindowsXP Home SP3. I thought I just needed DDR 333/PC2700 modules, which I found a deal on (Kingston KVR SO-DIMM). I switched out my 256's for 1GB's. When I tried to boot, everything went crazy: blue screen with a message I didn't have time to read, and after reboot, it says "Disk read error. Press CTRL-ALT-DEL to reboot." I tried sticking a Windows CD in to recover with Recovery Console, but when I get there and run CHKDSK, it says "The volume appears to contain one or more unrecoverable problems." Typing in "dir" to check drive C results in "An error occurred during directory enumeration." Have I totally screwed myself?
