i started up my computer this mourning, and it gave me a blue screen saying that theire`s a problem with my computer


i thought it was my network card, because ive had a blue screen problem before that was due to my network card
i removed the, but it didnt do anything
still the same
on the screen it said to disable BIOS memory options, like caching or shadowing, i disabled them
and still the same thing



i dont know what to do....it says re-install recently added hardware or remove it
but the last hardware that was installed was my printer like a month ago

Boot your computer with your installation disk and enter R for the recovery console

Type
chkdsk /r
at the prompt

let it finish

you shoudl be ok after a reboot.

You could also download RC.iso from the following link:

http://www.tweakxp.c...ticle36941.aspx

You need to burn this image to a CD and boot your computer with it--this is different than burning a file to a CD. If you do not know how to burn an ISO image, then download the following program to another Windows XP machine, install it.

http://isorecorder.a...isorecorder.htm

After installation, right click the RC.iso file you downloaded above and choose COPY IMAGE TO CD.

Then reboot your PC with that CD in the CD-ROM drive.

This will give you a recovery console to use to run
chkdsk /r

at a command prompt.

Hi Jack Doobie...

Try booting into Safe Mode (tap F8 key during boot sequence and choose Safe Mode) and use the Administrator logon...create yourself a new account and copy your files to the new account. Then restart and try logging onto the new account in Normal Mode...

Did you ret the files you needed and can you open them?

You might try this REPAIR to your installation of XP. This procedure will not damage or change your current files or settings...it will just repair or replace damaged system files. You will be asked for your Installation CD and may be asked for your product key. Follow the instructions carefully...print them out if you can. Note: This option is not always available on OEM Recovery Cd's
