I am a disabled college student with no income and no way to get my computer fixed. I have a Dell OptiPlex GX110 that was rebuilt and then sold to me. It has Windows 2000. It has always worked pretty well, except for the occasional error message. The last thing I did was remove a virus software that I got through my school and install avast. THen, I left for the weekend and when I came back the computer was crunching away and making really loud noises like something was loading but nothing was. I couldn't get anything to shut down so I turned turned off my power strip. Then I tried to start it again. It would get about halfway through loading Windows and then go to a blue screen. THe blue screen was partially cut off at the left side but this is what it said (what I could read):
*STOP 0x0000007B (0x82783030, 0x00000032, 0x0000000, 0x0000000)
Then it says to try to run CHKDSK/F to see if there are viruses but I don't know what in the world that means. I have tried to start it in safe mode and all the other modes but the same thing happens with the same message every time. I have VERY VERY important information and documents on this computer that are not backed up and I need to figure out what to do. I would appreciate any help or insights. Thank you very much.
