After a couple of power outages, Dell XPS laptop will not boot and blue screens with "stop 0x0000006B (oxc0000102,0x00000002,0x00000000,0x00000000). Ran chkdsk /r and sfc /scannow. Also tried start up repair with and without the Vista Disc. I am not knowledgeable enough to figure out which files are corrupt and was hoping for a little help. Thanks.

I should also mention that I cannot start in safe mode either. I have only been able to run chkdsk and sfc/ scannow form the "Repair your computer" command prompt selection.

Hi,

STOP 0x0000006B: PROCESS1_INITIALIZATION_FAILED

Usual causes: Hard drive, Cables, Missing boot files, Disabled driver

Try to run the the built-in Dell Diagnostics to test your hardware; especially the hard drive.

Regards,
Brooks

I gave up trying to repair it and reinstalled Vista from the factory image. I think a failing hard drive drive is a distinct possibility. Thanks.

I would still recommend running the Dell Diagnostics at boot and testing the hard drive before trusting it to store important data.
