So anytime I start my computer I get the below screen. Tried booting in safe mode, and safe mode with networking, but still nothing.

I then tried to do the fix the last time this happened(though the bluescreen was different).

I got to where I need to hir "r" and then it gave me the bluescreen again.

Help please, thanks

Nick

PS: Sorry for the crappy pics, not the best cameras

Hi there! Sorry we missed you....

Before reformatting, I would (if you have an actually XP disk instead of a recovery disk) boot to the Recovery Console and run a chkdsk /r. In order to do that, boot to the CD. At the menu it will give you an option to press R to enter the RC. You will need to log onto Whatever Windows installation C:\Windows is (usually number 1) and type any admin password (often this is left blank.) Then you should have a command prompt - a the prompt type
chkdsk /r
BE SURE TO PUT THE SPACE IN THERE. Let the chkdsk scan the drive and see what it says, and if you can boot.
