Blue Screen of death on 1st install of WinXP
Posted on 2004-08-26
I just installed WINXP pro and I get a blue screen saying:
"A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check hard drive for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /f to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer.
*** STOP: 0x0000007B (0XF894E640, 0XC0000034, 0X00000000, 0X00000000)"
please help. I have not yet been able to log into Windows.
This is a brand new system that has never been online so that rules out viruses.
I have run Chkdsk /r from the command prompt in the Repair section of the WinXP install disk. It seemed to work but on restart I still get the blue screen.
