What exactly is it saying?

Windows XP does not check for viruses before installing

a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

if this is the first time you have seen this stop error screen restart your computer. if this screen appears again follow these steps

check for viruses on your computer. remove any 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 curruption and then restart your computer

technical information:

*** stop: 0x0000007b (0xf78d2524,0x0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000)

thats about it and i cant run chkdsk at this point. thanks
