Just today my HP Windows XP got the Blue Screen of Death which listed

*** STOP: 0x000000F4

It had more details but didn't write it down. I couldn't find any info on this forum on this certain number and I was about to post about it until after attempting to get safe mode to work (which never worked) the Blue Screen slightly changed to this:

*** STOP: 0x0000007A (0xc034858, 0xc000000E, 0xF921650c, 0x08A43860)

*** atapi.sys - Address F921650c base at F9209000, DateStamp 482539d

Beginning dump of physical memory

The strange thing is that I don't use this computer often and haven't installed anything new to it for about a month. It was working perfectly fine the last time I used it which was a few days back and all I did was just uploaded some pictures from my digital camera. I don't use the internet/ethernet port so its basically virus free (I think).

Why did the STOP changed, I have no clue. It may of been from tapping F8 to get into safe mode which nothing happened but the blue screen showed up.

Wait something just happened as I'm typing this. The blue screen disappeared and a black screen appear with the words:

Operating System not found

Its on the upper left corner when I press a button the words just repeat over and over.

Can someone help me? I've had this computer for years and this never has happened to me before.
