Hi there

I had Windows XP installed on my PC, running properly for more than 4 years. I updated it last year to SP3 and worked amazingly well until last week...

I noticed some error message which came just before the login screen appears. It said windows has recovered from some serious damage and so on...
I clicked OK (no other option)..and logged in, only to find a windows explorer error and DrWatson Postmortem error displaying that windows encountered some issue, Send Report or don't send report. If I click Don't send, it closes, explorer restarts, and the message appears again! The only way I'm working now without interruption is to minimize the error message. Upon checking the system propoerties, it shows windows XP SP2!!!

So I tried installing SP3 via windows update, said it can't do that! It gave me an error code: 0x8007F0CC

Any idea how this can be fixed?

Test your RAM and also your hard drive.


You can burn the ISO to CD/DVD or create a bootable USB thumb drive.

Visit the site of your hard drive manufacturer for their diagnostic software.
