Hello,

My Windows XP on my laptop has gone into a continuous boot loop. I cannot get it to stop. I was able to freeze the blue screen and observe the following error message: STOP:0x000000 ED (0x82A91F8 0xc0000006 0x00000000, 0x00000000). I did not notice any virus before this suddenly happened. I had a similar experience about a year and a half ago and a person on this forum named Jsgtrvr was gracious enough to help me fix it. The difference is this time, my second (working) computer is a mac. Will I still be able to download all of the necessary fixes from a mac? Thanks for any help that one can give me.

I would try running the chkdsk /r command...from the XP Recovery Console or the following tool:

See instructions by Elise at http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic348469.html/page__view__findpost__p__1942375 .

Thanks for your reply. The link to ARCDC seems to be a dead link. Also I'm unsure how to run chkdsk from XP recovery console. Thank you for your time.

Apologies, that first link was for internal Staff use only...that's why you could not see the content.

Amended link, includes instructions on chkdsk /r.

Beautiful! It worked. It took a while because I had to wait to go back to work so that I could access it on a windows computer (my second computer is a Mac, and the download did not work).

Thanks again for your help!!!
