I have a Dell latitude c840 laptop. I have Win XP with sp2 on it. It's a Pentium 4 with a 40 Gb HD and 1 Gb of RAM. I have music production software installed and I only use it for that purpose. I haven't had it connected in the internet in five years until yesterday. I went online only to run windows update. While it was installing Microsoft framework, .net I believe, the power cord was accidentally pulled out. Now, when I try boot windows, after the welcome screen, it displays a background picture for a long while, then I get the BSOD. It says: DRIVER_IRQL_... 0x000000D1(0x0...34,0x00...21,0x00...00,0xF75A8C98) *** IdeChrDr.sys. Address F75A8C98 base at F75A4000, Date stamp 3cb4d2c0. Making beats on this computer is my livelihood. Please help.

Ok, can you boot into safemode with networking? If so, upon starting your computer, repeatedly tap f8 until you get to windows advanced boot options. Then select "Safemode with networking", please tell us what happens next, and if you can get into safemode.

When I boot to safe mode with or without networking, the lines of text scrolls down, then it just sat there in that state all night.

Do you have the installation cd that came with the laptop? Is your laptop equipped with a CD-ROM drive? Seeing as your laptop is a few years old. If so, you can boot from the install cd, once it loads setup and you are greeted with a blue with white text screen that looks like this.

Press R to enter recovery console.

Then, it will give you a choice of which install you want to recover. There should probably be only one main install, 1, there might also be a recovery or oem partiton (usually 2)

 Select the windows one, then if you have a password enter your password.

After you do that you will be at a screen that looks like this. 

Type in "chkdsk /f" 

Windows will now start to check your disk for errors and attempt to repair them. 

Considering your hard drive size it won't take longer than forty minutes.

FWIW:  An XP system reflecting SP2...cannot use Windows Update.  Base requirement is installtion of SP3.
