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 ot 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 the select Safe Mode.

I couldn't ESC out of it, had to turn it off & back on by tower. I tried several times & just kept getting the blue screen with same message. It won't let me boot up in Safe Mode, Safe Mode with Networking, Safe Mode with Command Prompt, Last Known Good Configuration or Start Windows Normally. When I try pressing ANY of these, I get a list of about 20:
and so on...
Turn off & back on by tower, pressed F12 for BOOT MENU
1. Onboard or USB Floppy Drive
2. Onboard SATA Hard Drive
3. Onboard IDE Hard Drive (not present)
4. Onboard or USB CD-ROM Drive
Reset every option back to way it was when the system left the factory.
Save & Exit
Back to black screen w/ Safe Mode, Safe Mode w/ Networking, etc... still getting the same list as above, multi(0)disk(0)rdisk and so on, when I try to select any option.

Boot to Utility Partition
Ran Express Test
Error Code 0F00:136C
IDE device failed
Ran Extended Test
Verified colors, alignment, keyboard but had to exit out of test because the mouse I use has a ball, not a middle roller button. Of course.
Went in and tested everything one at a time.
Started with Drives since that's where the apparent problem is coming from.
SATA Disk S/N=5MTOGLCQ
Device Self Test-PASS
Read Test-Error Code 0F00:0244 Msg: Block 181211417-181211440: Uncorrectable data error or media is write protected.
I have tried inserting the XP software, a ResourceCD and nothing happens. Just keep getting the BSOD or the Safe Mode screen which doesn't allow me to do anything.
After all of this testing & trying, I give up. I have no idea what to do, and no idea how to do it if there is something that can be done.
I am not very computer savvy, and the tech lingo is like Chinese to me. Is there anyone that can please help me understand what is going on with this computer and if possible, how to fix it? In words, phrases & directions I can understand?
I've looked online for results. A lot of people have had the same problem, but the lingo is confusing & then they never come back to the post to say if what they did worked or not.
Help is very much appreciated.
