i would like to know if anyone can help me out. i've tried everything and nothing seems to work.
I have a PC with windows XP and SP3 installed. last week, i added in 2 new SATA harddrives(1.5T byte each), and during that process, i moved the OS harddrive from one SATA port to another. there are total 6 sata ports on the mother board. After the new harddrives are added, the computer can no longer boot up. it boots to windows, flashes a blue screen so fast and went back again to the reboot process.
i tried to boot into safe mode, it didnt work, it just kept on rebooting.
I took out the XP disc and tried to boot from the CD, it then gave the following error during the setup process:
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 virues on your computer, remove any newly installed hardrives 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 (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I then took out the new harddrives and use only my original harddrive, the same problem still exists.
does anyone have any clue on why this is happening? I would like to run CHKDSK, but i cant even boot up to a prompt.
any help would be greatly appreciated. i am stuck.
