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:
*** 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.
