Errror Message on XP at startup 0xc0000020
Posted on 2013-01-10
I have a Sanyo Vaio Model PCV-2220. Running XP. At startup I am caught in a loop. I had it stop rebooting and show error. It is 0xc0000020 (0x00000000, 0x00000000) IT has a partitioned hard drive and it was not booting to the c:drive which is where the OS is loaded. I hooked it to another PC and ran error checking and the search for bad sectors. It found that some sectors where reporting data in the sector that was not correct and said it repaired the problem. I also backed up the other partition with all the customers data is on. When I connected it back to the original PC I have the same error message and problem. Can someone tell me what I can do without having to format the c:drive if that is possible? I was thinking of doing a repair but first I wanted to see if there is an easier way of repairing this hard drive.
