Hello, I recently used a program called TuneXp
(you might have heard of it). The program offered several options that made your comptuer run more smoothly. My computer is several years old so I looked at it as being an opportunity to squeeze some resources out of it.
After running the program and restarting everything was fine. The next day didn't fair to well though. Windows did not load and instead I received the following error message:
file is missing or corrupt:
You can attempt to repair this file by starting Windows Setup using the original setup CD-ROM. Select 'r' at the first screen to start repair.
After this I restart the computer with the Windows XP and boot from the cd-rom. The Windows Setup loads a bunch o fdrivers/controllers/etc., then it says the setup is starting windows. I then receive the following error message:
A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Chec for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption and then restart your computer.
*** Stop: 0x0000007B (0XF7B1A524, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)
I'm kind of left in the dust on how to recover my hard drive or what to do next. If anybody can provide me with some useful guidelines or incite, it would be most appreciated.
1.4 AMD Athlon
Thanks a lot for your assistance!
