However, after about a minute or so of looking at the "windows is shutting down" I received the blue screen of death with the 0x0000007B message.
Now, I can't even get past the WinXP load screen (with the moving bar) without getting the blue screen. This occurs at every option; regular startup, safe mode, and the "restore to settings that worked before"
So I then tried Chkdsk /r from recovery console but nothing has changed. I've looked here and there but I'm not sure what I should do and I don't want to mess anything up.
I did not update anything (no drivers, hardware, etc) since I had not touched my computer for 2 weeks and it worked fine before.
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
