Cannot get past the Blue stop screen. Please Help
Posted 16 January 2008 - 10:27 PM
I just removed the 256 video card,
and installed a 128 video card,
tried to boot both last known good, and safe mode,
blue screened both ways.
I'm going to reinstall the 256 for now.
Thank you, Gushwa

Does it show you any information on your partition or indicate that you have an operating system installed?

I get the multi colored windows splash screen
with the black background,
and the bar below the logo that moves from left to right.
If the video card was bad, would I even get that?

it starts loading drivers
then it says, examining disk configuration,
then I get a black screen with,
"which windows installation would you like to log onto",
gives only one choice,
I press "1 then Enter",
screen goes black,
then I get the blue STOP screen.

"If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software.
Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing."
Does that second sentence mean, to reset the CMOS?

I'm starting to wonder what kind of shape the motherboard is in...

ran the recovery console,
then it blue screened,
then I tried to just install windows,
it got to the agreement page,
where you hit F8 to install,
next screen is blue screen.

as I tried to rid the virus,
my functionality deteriorated to the point of the blue screen.
Before that, I had some heat issues,
(the room was only air conditioned when I was in there)
The fans were constantly running full force,
thats when I added the adapter fan to the video card.

I was running an express diagnostics,
I have an error code 0F00:136C
Msg: IDE device failed: Blank media or no media is present in optical drive.
Test requires media with digital data (Resource CD, Installation CD),
I have the windows xp installation cd in the master dvd drive.
I hit retry, and it gave me the error again.
Mabey I should try the slave dvd?

Try the format option...starting by deleting the partition. Are you familiar with how to do that?

Yeah...try the other drive. I think we're still headed for a format, though.
