I ran chkdsk, and everything turns up fine and dandy. I had a second hard drive in this computer, and I removed it. The error still comes up. About two weeks before I moved, I installed a new DVD drive, but this computer went through many startup/shutdown sequences while still at my old place and it worked fine. I tried running Ultimate Boot CD, and that won't work either. I get this message when I try to boot into UBCD:
A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
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 for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78CE52B, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I haven't tried to repair windows because I don't have any way to get some of my non-backuped files off that drive right now if something messes up. (My fault, at least I had the sense to back up my photos before the move). And since I can't boot into windows, I can't run a virus scan.
I'm stuck at what to do next. Where should I go from here?
Edit: no clue why the BBC code isn't working ): Sorry.
