lets jump back a bit, about a month ago i tried to install a second HDD and in the process somehow my ram got fried. i sent the ram in cause it has a lifetime warrenty and they sent me back a new gb(dual channel, 400, cas 2, geil). oh i might mention that i have partition magic and have used that to spilt my existing HDD into two partitions.
after this whole folly i havent put the second disk in again, i got my ram in the mail today and put it in, it posts and then while its at the second loading screen for win2k it locks up, bsod and throws me a stop message.
stop: 0x00000050 at the ntoskrnl.exe PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGE_AREA
so i looked online for solutions and tried a few diffrent things that had been suggested.
i set it to 'last good known..' and then it gives me a diffrent stop message
stop: 0x0000001E KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED at, once again, the ntoskrnl.exe
so then i used the win2k cd to boot off so that i could get a prompt maybe and run chkdsk /f /r like a few places reccomended but as its loading the cd it starts to load into windows and i get the same exact error as above, the KMODE one.
safe mode nets me the same stop as at first (PAGE_FAULT...).
so its impossible to get into windows or even a prompt. i know i have limited space(which could cause the first stop message) and i was planning to boot into windows and burn some stuff to cd to make room but i cant even get that far.
someone please help!
