Recently i was attempting to resize my HD using partition magic(i did not backup prior [IMG]http://images.techguy.org/smilies/frown.gif[/IMG] ). During the process my computer lost power. Upon rebooting i receive the following blue screen error message:
a problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to our 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:
disable or uninstall any anti-virus, disk defragmentatio or backu utils. check your HD config, and check for any updated drivers run CHKDSK /F to check for HD corruption, and then restart your computer.
*** STOP: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x8a368268, 0xc0000102, 0x00000000)
After receiving the error msg i restarted and received the same error. I have valuable informaton on the HD that i can not do without. Knowing that, i still tried to reboot with the dell recovery cd and i again receive the following blue screen:
*** STOP: 0x0000007e (0xc0000005, 0xf748e08f, 0xf78da208, 0xf78d9f08)
*** pci.sys - address f748e0bf base at f7487000, datestamp 3c0bfadb
I was reading that the pci.sys error has something to do with service pack 2. If i spstream the SP2 into the recovery cd i could possibly get around such a msg. However, i would rather avoid such a procedure as i do not think it would provide a solution.
I have tried to boot with the "last known good configuraton," debug mode, all with the same results.
I performed all possible HD tests within the system settings and the included dell utilities, receiving a "pass" from each.
I removed the HD and booted the PC with only the windows cd from the ide cd/dvd drive, all yielding the same results.
anyhelp would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
