Hello I hope someone can help me as I think this may be my last chance before I have to buy a new computer :) My computer has run fine for years, however this morning when I turned it on it didnt boot as normal. It loaded in the screen which gives the options to run as normal, last known good config, safe mode etc. and i chose last known good config. It loaded up to the windows loading screen, then it flashed blue and restarted. It has done this ever since with whatever option i choose and will not run in safe mode. I disabled it to so it didnt restart when there was an error and the message on the blue screen gave me Stop 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x8A4c6370, 0x0c0000102, 0x00000000)

I have researched this many times on the internet however all the advice given has not worked. I do not have my original XP Professional disc as my ex boyfriend took it with him when we split, so i borrowed my friends just so i could do a repair but it would not boot from the cd drive, it gave me the option to do so for less than a split second which is not enough time for me to press any keys, i have tried over and over again without success.

I also tried with a windows XP home just in case that could help, and i did get that to boot up but as soon as it loads up after i accept the user agreement I get another blue screen with Stop 0x0000008E.

If anyone has any advice I would be very grateful as I have a lot of stuff on the hard drive I do not want to lose. I do not know the make of the computer as it was custom built by my ex but i do know it has a Nivada Gforce graphics card and 2 ram cards - 1 gig and 256 mb if that helps.

I dont know if this is relevant but my pc has 2 partitions as my ex boyfriend did not remove the old one correctly. This has never been an issue for over 2 years but recently every time I logged in it asked me to run a chkdsk on C drive, which is the one not in use, and I have had this message for about 4 weeks now and it always comes up even though I run the chkdsk every time. Also lately i have had audio issues where the volume would not work and when i went to check if mute was selected it said I had no audio devices installed untill I reset the PC and it worked fine again.

Sorry for long post I just wanted to bring up everything in case it was of any relevance to the Issues I have.

Hope someone can help :)
