When I booted my PC yesterday everything seemed fine until about 30 seconds after the desktop appeared. It was then that I heard an unfamiliar click then got the blue screen of death with the message:
STOP:d0000144 UNKNOWN HARD ERROR
unknown hard error
After getting the same result after 3 manual power downs and reboots, I booted in Safe mode and tried running McAfee antivirus but got a message saying there were not enough system resources. I tried running Spybot Search and got the same message. Then I went to Recovery Console mode and ran chkdsk /r which ran succesfully and reported that it found and repaired 1 or more problems. I attempted to reboot normally with the same blue screen result. Next I tried booting with the last known good Windows settings but also got the same blue screen result. I then tried using System Restore but got a message saying that the file could not be found (for three separate dates). I am now at my wits end and desperately need some help.
I built this system one year ago and haven't had any problems until now. The specs are as follows:
Windows XP Pro
P4 ht 3.0ghz
2gb ddr pc3200
Maxtor 200gb hd
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide.
