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
