Help please, i'm pretty desperate. My Pc suddenly lost everything from the screen but the power stayed on. I then turned the power off and restarted it. It attempted to load XP but then I was presented with A blue screen.

STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x323CACD8, 0xF78A23B4, 0x00000000)

I then restarted it again and tried starting in safe mode, as it was loading it seemed to hang at giveio.sys eventually it brought me back to the blue screen. I've tried taking the RAM out and just leaving one in, and then swtiching them, that still didn't work. I've tried unplugging everything except the power and video lead and it still doesnt work.

I plugged in just the keyboard and tried booting from the last known working settings but that didn't work either but the stop code was slightly different.

STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x3231ECD8, 0xF78A23B4, 0x00000000)

Does anyone know how I can get around any of this and get back into windows?
Thanks

Insert the 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.

OK i ran the chkdsk /r it fixed errors, i then changed the settings so that it would boot from the HDD, and I tried to enter safe mode again and it still hangs on giveio.sys then blue screens with the same STOP message as before.

Anything else I could try? Or am I going to have to reinstal the OS

Well...I imagine that it's pretty useful to all those who may not have SP3 installed and all succeeding critical updates up through 36 hours or so ago...I should say it's useful if they heed the advice/suggestion made by MS personnel.

Run chkdsk again and see if it is still reporting errors.

Ok so apparently the hard drive is fine?
So where do we go now?

What is the purpose of this Giveio.sys and is it removable without being able to get into XP?

Try running these two commands in the Recovery Console (do them one at a time):

fixboot

fixmbr
