I have a Gateway LX6810-01, Intel Core 2 Quad Q8200 Processor, running on Windows Vista. I have had it for about 2 years and just recently I can't get my computer to reboot properly. When I power up my PC I get the following displays...
First, the initial GATEWAY, Boot Menu F10, BIOS Settings F2 screen appears. So I am able to get into BIOS.
The next screen displays..
Mediashield ROM BIOS 10.0.0.5 RPT IDP
Copyright 2008 Nvidia Corp
Detecting Storage Devices...
1 0.1 HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH15F
Press F9 to enter RAID setup utility...
1 0.0 WDC WD6400AAKS 596.17GB
The following screen is black and then a blinking cursor appears in the top left corner of the screen. I have let it sit there for 20 minutes, nothing happens, the cursor just keeps blinking constantly.
I just tried to restart my computer using my Windows XP CD, and I got the following message...
A problem has been detected and Windows has 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 for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF78D2524, 0xC0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)
Can I still run chkdsk or anything if I can't start up my computer? Any help on this problem is appreciated.
