(Right now I'm using my other old computer)
You see, whenever I startup my computer, everything rolls smoothly, just as usual, but within 10-15 seconds of the computer being on (after it's done loading and is ready to be used), I hear a little clicking sound, and the screen turns into this blue screen that reads:
" 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 to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver 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. Diable 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: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0x806129AF, 0x00000000)
Beginning dump of physical memory
Physical memory dump complete.
Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance."
Now, I thought it would go away and fix itself over time, but it's been doing this for nearly 3 days now, and I have no idea what to do about it or how to fix it.
And, I'm not all that really "computer-smart", so, I don't even understand what's wrong. I didn't even understand half of what the message said.
I need this to be fixed too, because I have ALL my files on there, and I lost all the file backup CD's, so I can't restart my entire computer
(by restart I mean erasing everything and starting over.)
Because the files are too important to just erase, it would take me days on end to have to type everything back up again.
Someone please help.
