Hi, and yes this is my fist post here at BC.com, but i have wandered through the hardships of otheres and the resolutions to aid me in fixing my never ending broken computer ^^

Im currently using windows xp profesional corporate edition 2003 i believe and suddenly my computer just restarted, black screen and then i was met with the login screen which askd u to choose from the following..start windows normally etc..
I press enter, and it looks as if it will load then just reboots on its own accord.
I run recovery console with boot disk and run chkdsk, and it says the volume is fine.
I disconnect the HD and reboot, then reattatch the HD and i again run recov console and this time it shows up with a blue screen saying i have a corrupted symc810.sys file and to contonue...then well the circle continues
help is much appreciated

This appears to be a driver for your motherboard (Symbios Logic 8100S PCI SCSI Adapter).

2 things come to mind:
1) Uninstall the device in Device Manager and then reboot. Let Windows detect and install the device. If this doesn't work then....
2) Go to the website of your PC manufacturer and download the latest motherboard/chipset drivers from there. Then uninstall the device, reboot, and don't let Windows detect/install it. Then run the installation program for the updated drivers.

Good luck and let us know how it works out!
