My computer has recently gone berserk and is not booting up windows. I've tried to use safe mode, normal mode, last known configuration mode but nothing works!!!! Help!!!

The following is what the message is that I keep getting on a blue screen.

"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

The problem seems to be caused by the following file: nfts.sys

page_fault_in_nonpaged_area

Technical info:

STOP: 0x00000050 (0xA1818C9C, 0x00000000, 0xF769D74F, 0x00000000)

ntfs.sys - address F769D74F base @ F7675000, Datestamp 41107eea)"

Sometimes the A18..... portion will change numbers slightly.

I can't even get into windows to begin figuring out how to fix. PLEASE HELP!.

This blue screen is commly caused by Damaged RAM, corrupt drivers.

Follow the steps below:
  • In ur BIOS set CD-ROM has 1st Boot Device.
  • Insert XP Setup CD, to boot from CD.
  • After the intial loading of drivers is over, on the Welcome to Setup Screen with 3 options; Press R key, to "Repair XP installtion using Recovery Console".
  • U will be prompted for Adminstrator account's password. Press Enter if the password was blank.
  • Now u should be on the Recovery Console command prompt, type the following command:
    chkdsk x: /r /f
    (Replace x: with all ur drive letters one-by-one to run chkdsk on them seprately).
    If any errors are fixed, reboot and try to start PC normally; otherwise continue to next step.
  • Below are two ways to replace the corrupt NTFS driver:
    Use Method1 only if u downloaded SP2 and installed it.
    Use Method2 if u have installed SP2 from CD and u have the CD; or if u have'nt installed SP2 at all.
  • Method1:
    Type the following comamds:
    cd\WINDOWS\ServicePackFiles\i386
    copy ntfs.sys c:\Windows\System32
    .
  • Method2:
    Type the following comamd:
    copy x:\i386\ntfs.sys c:\windows\system32\ntfs.sys.
    (where x: the drive-letter of ur CD-ROM drive and c: is the partition where XP was installed)
We will also need to check for Damaged RAM.
Download, burn the image and run the memtest86 (Bootable ISO version)
