this has probably been covered elsewhere but.......
My acer extenza has just crashed........
after many years perfect service I now end up in a start up loop
I have followed some instructions and can see the error code
STOP: 0 x 00000024.
as this unit is for my work the programs and settings are invaluable so I want to get the whole thing running ' as was '
HDD swapped into an identical laptop with same result.
HDD now in carrier tried to boot another machine from USB - same fault.
HDD still in a carrier and I am trying to retrieve my confined data
Although I know XP can possibly be repaired from an XP disc ( which I dont have )
anyone know of anyway I can get this back to normal working order ???
any help greatfully received
