Was "surfing" the web when I had clicked on a laggy youtube video. An Adobe box popped up suggesting to abort the script. I clicked yes. I then notied that now the computer was going even slower. I still had my installion set up of maple story still running. Then the computer crashed to the blue screen. The error was STOP:0x00000024. The next restart I got "Windows did not turn off properly". I press Start with same settings and got the same error. I decided to use Safe mode but I got another error. STOP:0x0000007B. I tried all the options there until I finally decided to use the recovery console. Unfourtunaly I didn't have the XP cd. SO, I had to download the recovery console off of here. I burned it onto a CD-R. Put it into the computer and booted it up. I pressed F12 for the boot menu. Pressed Onboard or USB CD-ROM Drive. The CD booted up succesfully. The computer loaded the files. At the end I pressed R to repair it. But, I got the error that my hard disk drive could not be found. I have increased the RAM of the computer with a 1 gb stick. To make it 1.25 gb. Orginally 512 mb. But that was awhile ago and things were running perfectly. I have recently installed Service Pack 3 but didn't restart until hours later.

STOP 24 errors, left column at http://www.aumha.org/a/stop.htm.

Generally, these may be hard drive or file system problems which can be overcome by running chkdsk /r from the XP Recovery Console...or they can be more serious and require deletion of the existing partition and creation of a new file system/partition.

I would try the chkdsk /r command.
