greetings,
about a couple of weeks ago, i posted a problem i had with my pc and got some help from some good people here. the problem is that it hasnt been rectified
yet, and now my pc wont even start in safe mode. i was thinking that maybe i need to use the recovery console. but b4 i do any more damage, i would like to ask someone for help.


when i disable automatic start up to read the stop message, this is what came up:,

stop: 0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0xbf81e7b6, 0xb6299a6c, 0x0000000000)

win32k.sys - address bf81e7b6 base at bf800000, datestamp 4a8564c7


my make and model is :

kds usa 2004
amd sempron 2800+
via kt600 chipset

Hey SupaSpirm

I suggest you go thru and run Recovery Console.
Just use chkdsk /r, see if that can fix the problem.

If that does not work:
Do you have any third-party remote control tools? That is the reasoning behind the problem stated here.

If you need help with any of these steps please don't hesitate to post and ask for more instruction! :thumbsup:

thanx for the help, p.j.! but how do you run chkdsk/r? i tried it and it says it doesnt recognize that command. it only worked with chkdsk, and it read:
the volume appears to be in good condition and was not checked. use /p if you want to check the volume anyway.

and then it showed my total disk space and such. can you direct me to a tutorial of sorts for using c:/ prompt?

once again i appreciate the help. its nice to unload some of this headache to other people. the bright side of this is that at least im learning a great deal more about computers. porn was getting boring anyways :thumbsup:

FWIW,
There needs to be a space between chkdsk and /r for it to work properly...Tutorial for usage can be found here:

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

ok... so b4 i ran the chkdsk /r it said i had a different problem. instead of the 0x8e error, it read that i had an 0x7b error. so i ran the chkdsk /r, now this time i have the 0x8e error again. what the hell? :flowers:

i'm running the chkdsk one more time, then im going to check that threesome thing you mentioned earlier.
i have to press f6, correct? but i dont think i have the floppy for it.(drive a is for the floppy, right?)

yes, i am THE super-noob. :thumbsup:
