I am working on a:
Gateway GM5260 Intel Core 2 Duo system running Windows XP Media Center
2 GB RAM (2x1GB)
320 GB HD
I was cleaning up this PC for someone, removing programs and games, etc and doing updates. Well I had left it for the day and I came back and it was powered off. I went to turn it on and it gets to the Windows XP black splash screen and flashes a BSOD real quick and restarts itself, it's in a loop. It always asks how I want to start since it was not shut down properly. I have tried last known good, safe mode, safe mode with networking, and safe mode with command to no avail...same thing.
The BSOD did stay up when I tried to go to safe mode and it says:
A problem has been detctecd and Windows has been bleep down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop erro screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly 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 corruption, and then restart your computer.
***STOP: 0x0000007B (0XF78E2640, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)
Any recommendations next? I was planning on pulling the hard drive and running a check disk via slaving it over to my PC.
Thanks for the input
