My computer's startup was interrupted by a power issue. I try again and this time get a blue screen telling me to run CHKDSK/F. So I try to start the computer again on safe mode with command prompt to do so, but the blue screen pops up again before I can get there. I hit F8 and tried every possible way of getting into the computer and everytime the blue screen pops up.
All of this is also on the blue screen
Stop 0x00000024 (0x00190444, 0x87012210, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)
The computer is a Vaio laptop. The only thing that works is when I press F10 I get into the Vaio Recovery Environment. The options are:
Windows System Restore which is just going back to an older date which I tried already
Vaio Hardward Diagnostic which does a diagnostic on the hardware to see what the problem is
Restore C: Drive which sets things back to factory settings but keeps preloaded software
Restore System which sets everything back to original factory settings
Rescue Data lets you try to save data on the computer if you can't get into windows
So I have 2 questions
1. Is there any other way to get a dos prompt on Vista so I can run CHKDSK/F?
2. Would anything in the Vaio Recovery Environment help?
