Please do the following:

Get a look at the error message presented by the BSOD (blue screen of death) ....

  • Start tapping the F8 key after you press the ON button, and continue tapping until you are presented with the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" screen.

  • Use the UP/DOWN arrow keys to select "Disable automatic restart on system failure" and press the <ENTER> key.
  • Your system will attempt to restart normally, but when it crashes, it will not re-start: Instead, you will see a BSOD with error message.

  • Record the error message details (contained in the areas outlined in red, in the above example image), and post in your reply.

Do you have an XP install CD?


Can you boot into safe mode?


The typical fix for this error...is to run the chkdsk /r command and hope for the best.
