During an attempt to defrag my computer ....my computer shut down and I got a blue screen that said "Computer has shut down to prevent damage, remove antiviurs programs etc etc.
I tried to boot in Safe Mode and used the "Last known settings that worked"...it starts Windows XP for about 4 seconds and then goes to the blue screen again. When I tried basic safe mode the screen just scrolled a bunch of numbers down the screen and stopped(sorry I'm not more specific).
I tried a Diagnostic(not really sure how I did it), I did get a statement that said
DST Short Status Test - Failed 1000-0142
Msg 4 Drive Self Test Failed Byte 70
I have no idea what to do from here. I am somewhat computer illiterate. Any help would be appreciated.
