Hi Bleeping Computer Folks
I have quite a paradoxical boot up problem, but I am sure you have probably come across
something like this many times before.
I started having BSOD's a few weeks ago but Windows would eventually load.
The usual BSOD message would be;
then the next time I booted up the pc another BSOD message;
It has then been joined by 0x0000007E
0x0000000A and 0x00000050
Yesterday my PC would not boot at all, but I received various cryptic BSOD messages;
and later Atapi.sys
I tried to boot into SAFE MODE but was unable to, then tried a System Repair using my OEM Window XP CD, again no joy.
Finally I decided to to do a Fresh re-install of Windows, and after many hours this too proved annoyingly fruitless.
I can no longer access Windows just a black hang screen, but mainly the BSOD screen with various eror mesages (as above).
I am running AMD Athlon 3GHz Processor, with 512MB RAM
ASUS A7N8X2.0 Mobo, and an Nvidia GeForce FX5600 Graphics card at 128MB.
(I appreciate these are ancient specifications).
I do hope someone here can advise.
