the error code i get when trying to start up and slapped by the blue screen of death is:
**STOP: 0x0000007b (0xf78cd524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
I have runned the hard drive diagnostic and recieved the error code: 02h.
ADDITIONALLY: I did got this error once when trying to start up:
I was once allowed to boot up using the selection of last known safe boot up...I then ran a virus check, defrag and whatnot...when it was all done it asked me to reboot which i did and have had the blue screen ever since.
I have now put in my windows xp home edition boot disk and i am booting from the CD drive. Hitting "R" for Repair and Recover Functionality then it prompts me to chose only onne selectio - C:\WINDOWS.
Now when I chose this I am prompted for an admin password (which I don't recall ever adding one) but I did tupe in Admin and that came up invalid. So I just hit enter on the password prompt with nothing entered and it then goes to the prompt on a separate line:
Is there something else I need to type in after this prompt to get the disk going? Thanks for your help in advance and happy new year...
