Hi all,

Would appreciate any help with the following...

Blue Screen on startup says:
0x000000ED (0x82D1B6D0, 0xC0000006, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)

Attempting to restart in safe mode brings up the same screen and not sure how to proceed.

Asking this on behalf of my mother who says last use of computer involved transfer of some files from laptop to external hard drive. This went fine and computer was shut down normally, startup today was first sign of blue screen.

Can provide any other details as needed- just don't want to clutter this question with anything unnecessary. Have looked through some of the other related posts but this error message is different and google has brought me nothing so far...

Thanks in advance.

The STOP error 0x000000EDindicates unmountable boot volume.
In the circumstances I would suspect file corruption in the MBR
see this

and insert the XP CD and run chkdsk /r at recovery console

Here is HOW to do that

PLease only try the chkdsk /r at this stage.
