I totally agree...but what else is there to do? I would try anything if there are other options.

I had 53gb of my own music on the 8400, just for starters -- nearly every cd I owned. Course, that's replaceable, as I still have the cds.

But, yes, I'd love to be able to save and not replace. Next step???

In looking at the screenshots, your HDD is shown as 160GB (160042MB) and thatit passed the diagnostics.

Try booting back into Recovery Console using the cd and see if there are any partitions recognized.

ok try this one

unplug your computer from power bar or the wall socket or outlet

hold power button for 30 seconds

open up side panel and see if you have 2 memory cards inside

if you do remove them then switch them around

at the same time unplug and replug you hard drive wire

assemble side panel and plug back in

turn power on see what happens

just maybe one memory stick is no good or blocking something

Hi wannabe1 -- I know what you're talking about, because I set up a second partition on this one (Dell 2400) a few years ago, until I did a clean reinstall. I was actually considering that option, but did not see a similar area to try, on the 8400, but I'll check again. Thanks.

Ohhh open it? I'm not that brave yet. lol. But, I may be getting close. : ) Thanks rushin1nd

Sorry for the late reply, but life got in the way. Two nights ago, I searched for another partition, wo luck. Now, this computer (4300 -- which I said above was a 2400) has developed display problems. I am concerned it may be also infected with something, but I've posted about that problem, along with a HiJack this log, in the malware section.

I had taken many more pics with my dig camera, as I tried to search for a separate partition -- and of the screens I received when I attempted to reinstall windows, but now those pictures cannot be seen with my display problems, and until I can get that solved, I won't be able to post my findings here. I am sure the pics will give a little more insight as to the extent of the damage to my hard drive (or not) and I hope to post them soon.

Good grief. I'm sick of problems!!!! sob, sob, sob

Let's wait and see what they have to say in Malware before we push foreward from here. The screenshots may, indeed, be helpful.

Hi, so... I see this thread is from 2006, but this is the exact same problem I'm having right now! When I try to reboot, I press F8, try to go to safe mode, and then I get this Blue Screen of Death:

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, [**Note: it's not, I get it every time!!**] restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

Check 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.

Technical information:

***STOP: 0x0000007b (0xF7943524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

So... this seems to be the same 0xF7943524 problem that was run into before. I'm sure I must have picked up some virus or another, but I wasn't paying attention to the popups I was getting until it was too late. What happened to this person's computer? Were you able to save it somehow? If so, please let me know!

Please help!! Thanks so much!
