REGISTRY_ERROR   STOP: 0x00000051 (0x00000003, 0x00000001, 0x00003000, 0xE1197030)

Recently, a machine I have in the library for a community college I work for has come up with a BSOD.  It gives me the following:

REGISTRY_ERROR

Tech Info:
*** STOP: 0x00000051 (0x00000003, 0x00000001, 0x00003000, 0xE1197030)

It occurs when I boot up Windows.  It all looks normal until it goes to the F8 screen and then continues on showing the Windows Splash Screen then it stops with the registry error (BSOD.)

I have tried every option on the F8 screen with the same results.  Nothing works.  I have updated the Dell BIOS, I have cleared the BIOS, I have tried the Recovery Console with chkdsk and if finds an error or two and says it fixed it, but when I reboot it still does the samething, I have tried the XP recovery/rebuild option, but everytime it accesses or detects the OS it crashes to that BSOD.  I have tried everything I can think of other than reformating the HDD.  I am hoping that someone can give me clues in possibly how to fix this without rebuilding the OS.  I have ADA programs (i.e. ZoomText, Jaws, Dragon SpeakEasy, etc.) that I wish to not have to reinstall after a rebuild, if I can help it.

Here are the machine specs:

Dell Dimension 3000
CPU: Intel P4 2.8GHz
RAM: 256MB DDR PC3200
HDD: Seagate 40GB

OS: Windows XP Pro


Thank you in advance whatever assistance you can give.

Bob

Sounds like a tough one.  Based upon my preliminary research, it looks like quite few sharp IT people have run into a problem with this error message, too.

The only advice I could pass on at this stage of the game is to remember your disaster recovery options, just in case you ARE forced format and reload.  Utilizing tools such as ERD Commander or BartPE in order to reboot into a separate CD-based operating system would allow you to copy any pertinent data that still remains on the hard drive to an external USB backup device...

Thanks JoeZ430.  That was exactly what I was looking for.  I had to do it manually, but it worked like a charm.  Thanks again.
