My computer will not boot - not even in safe mode. It attempts start up and shuts itself down and attempts to restart only to loop endlessly. I cannot run Gateway recovery. It freezes.
After my pc attempts to start it flashes a blue error screen for about 1 second before it restarts. I managed to snap a blurry photo of it. You'll see the error STOP 0x00000024
I have a Gateway MX6920 laptop that is 3 years old. Prior to this happening, my dvd drive quit working (I posted about it here though I didn't get any responses http://www.geekstogo...e-t253912.html) so I cannot run any kind of discs. (even still the only disc my pc came with is the "operating system")
I tried to find a usb-to-usb so that I could connect it to my husband's pc (which is a desktop) in hopes that I could explore my drive and see if it was possible to run a chkdisc on it but I cannot find any proper cables. Is this my only option other than taking it to a computer repair store? My fear is that taking it to a computer repair store will cost almost as much as just buying a new laptop.
THANK YOU FOR ANY & ALL ADVICE. I am completely without a computer while this is in effect. (thank goodness for my iphone which has been my saving grace through this)
