Currently the error on the screen says:
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, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentation or backup utilities. Check your hard drive configuration, and check for any updated drivers. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
*** STOP: 0x00000024 ( 0x00190203, 0x82383C78, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)
I have tried running the renewing console through the boot CD but all it says at the bottom is "76294 MB Disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi..." I have tried leaving it like this over night and nothing has happened.
The computer is a few years old and the OS is Windows XP Home Edition.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
