I am trying to fix my HP Media Ceter PC and it is screwed.
I recently removed a virus and it just kicked this computer sideways.
First explorer.exe was not starting up during the boot up. I was getting past that by going to the system task manager and starting explorer.exe manually.
All my data is intact as is windows XP. my problem is that I cannot get to it with out waiting a really long time for the computer to start after running chkdsk as a startup or autorun file.
Every time I restart, the computer is forced into a chkdsk before the computer will load. This takes about 1 hour.
I have even tried to reload XP and can not.
i keep getting this stop 0x0000007e error message
PCI.SYS - address F748E0BF base @ F7487000 Date Stamp 3b7d8sc
as a result I cannot even reload XP into my computer.
Help, I don't know were to go next.
