Just researching your options.

At this moment the only think I can think of is a Repair install.

I know you were trying that earlier what happened?

Hi tuxmaster,
I apologize for the delay in response time. Hada a Family emergency I had to attend to. I hope you can still help me with my problem.


This is what happened the 1st time I tried to fix things with those instructions:

I followed the steps in the page but hit a bump. All the steps where going fine until the third part of step 4 (the third Blue Screen picture on the page)
My Blue Screen was different. It did not have the option to repair. This is what mine said:
-------------------------------------------------------------------
WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL SETUP

The Following list shows the exisiting partitions and unpartioned space in this computer.

Use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to select an item from the list.
To Set up Windows XP on the selected item, Press ENTER
To Crete a Partition in the Unpartioned space, press C
To delete the selected partion, press D
--------------------------------------------------------------
19070 MB disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi [MBR]
C: Partition1 [UNKNOWN] 19069 MB (19069 MB free)
Unknown Disk
(There is no Disk in this drive)

-----------------------------------------------------------------



I tried it again and this is what comes up now:

-------------------------------------------------------------------
WINDOWS XP PROFESSIONAL SETUP

The Following list shows the exisiting partitions and unpartioned space in this computer.

Use the UP and DOWN arrow keys to select an item from the list.
To Set up Windows XP on the selected item, Press ENTER
To Crete a Partition in the Unpartioned space, press C
To delete the selected partion, press D

----------------------------------------------------------------
Unknown Disk
(There is no disk in this drive. )

Another thing, Whne I hit F3 to quit and exit, I got a Blue Screen with the Following:

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:

Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a Driver is
identified in the Stop message, disable the driver or check
with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video
adapters.

Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable
BIOPS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need
to use Safe Mode to remove or disable components, restart your
computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then
select Safe Mode

Technical Information:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xc0000005, 0xF99c6CFD, 0xF95A9800, 0x00000000)

*** setupdd.sys - Address F99C6CFD base at F999D000, DateStamp 3d6dd67f



P.S. I cant even shutoff the computer.

Go ahead and download MTEST86 in my signature. Then burn it to a CD using A ISO burner. If you do not have a ISO burner you can use Deepburner

Also I wanted to ask....I have NTI CD-Maker 6 Standard on this computer. Is that considered an ISO burner??

Fixed dead link. A ISO burner is a burner that can burn ISO images. Check your Cdburner manual for instructions on how to do so.
