Warning: When reading the following please be aware that I am pretty useless when it comes to tech stuff and have very little understanding of what I'm talking about.
I have looked for similar threads and did find one but cannot now find it.
I have a Dell Zino running Windows 7 Ultimate. I got it second hand with Windows 7 already loaded - no recovery disc, product codes or Windows 7 disc. Over the last two weeks I got the BSOD several times and just switched off and on again (possibly not a good move). I also have children who use it unsupervised so it may have had some less than ideal treatment. A few days ago it wouldn't start up at all but just gets stuck with two choices:
Advanced System Recovery Options
Start Up Repair Bugcheck analysis:
Error Code = 0x0
Root cause found:
Bad hard disk: Bugcheck 7a. Parameters = 0xfffff6fc50060b18, 0xfffffffc0000185, 0x3d300880, 0xfffff8a00c16548.
I can't access Safe Mode.
I've managed to rescue all my data to an external hard drive using Knoppix but I'm now wondering if the hard drive problem is terminal.
After trying to repair I get this message:
