Okay so I went into BIOS and set the PC to boot to the Windows XP CD. It prompted me to press any key to boot to CD drive, so I did. After Windows XP setup (after it is loading the files), I get a blue screen that says:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your
If this is the first time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer.
If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a drive is identified in
the Stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for
driver updates. Try changing video adapters.
Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable BIOS memory
options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove
or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced
Startup Options, and then select safe mode.
Stop: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0XF748E0BF, 0XF78DA208, 0XF78D9F08)
pci.sys address F748E0BF base at F7487000
Any ideas? I don't care about recovering any files, just want to format.
