My PC was working perfectly before, shut it down normally, then next morning it would not boot up. These are the specs:
HP d4100y 3GB PC2-4200 RAM
Win XP Home SP3
Samsung SP1614 160GB HD
No recovery discs, but the HD has the recovery files on partition D
When started, the lights and fan go on as normal, but then the BIOS screen appears, and I must either go into Set-up or
try to boot Windows. If I choose any type of boot up, normal or safe-mode or with a command prompt, after about 2
seconds the whole BIOS screen comes back again. If I try getting into the Recovery Console, I instantly get a Blue Screen
saying that loading Windows has been aborted with the error message:
0x0000007B (0xF78D2524 0xC0000034 0x00000000 0x00000000)
I can't try running a check like CHKDSK /F since I can't get any command prompt.
The BIOS lists the HD, so it is being detected...I can't figure this out!!
