i think i am screwed. i am stuck in a boot loop, so my computer wont start. i cant run in safe mode, last good config, etc. it keeps going back to the beginning screen. i am able to get to a blue screen where i see stop 0x00000024 error. which means some file nfts is corrupted.

here is the problems.

1. i am computer stupid
2. i dont have the sony discs to repair
3. i am broke and cant afford to pay anyone

so the reboot issue, from what i have read involves either reseating things plugged in. problem is i dont know what people are talking about when they say to pull this out or reseat the bios, etc. this is the first time i have ever looked inside a computer. they also say to do the disc, but like i said, i dont have it.

when i google about the stop number, all the methods for correct it seem to involve running a chkdsk. but i cant do that because there is no way to get there, my computer keeps rebooting.

so it seems the first thing i want to do is run the chkdsk. does anyone know if there is a way to do this from my situation_ and if you reply, please talk to me like you would a child. computer talk flies right over my head. thanks
