Before I chuck my pc out of the window, what can I do to sort this problem out?
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 make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed.
If this is a new installation, , ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need.
If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS 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.
*** STOP: 0x000000D1 (0xE1DF3000, 0x00000002, 0x000000000, 0xAAE8D0A5)

Contact your system administrator or technical support group for further assistance.
I am not very techy, but after googling the error and stop codes, I have tried the following:
- Attempted to restart.
Sometimes it just reboots itself when I power it on. Other times it just goes straight to the above screen after the windows logo comes one- Pressed F8 to launch advanced options
Going to previously correct configuration does not solve this
Selecting safe mood brings me back to the above blue screen
- Intel Celeron ® CPU 2.8GHz
- 256 MB RAM
- 80 GB hard drive
- Windows XP Service pack 2
Can this be fixed by me if so what procedure specific to my problem should I follow?
Thanks in advance
(PS I would really like to get this fixed, either by me or at a shop if it is not a costly affair.
The alternative would be retrieving/transferring the data on my hard disk onto an external storage device)
