Fox the reaper January 4, 2008 at 18:43:49 Specs: Windows XP home, 1 gig
Whenever I startup my PC it will start loading windows normally. Then I get this blue screen almost immidiately after saying "Windows has shut down (or w/e) to pevent damage from happening to your computer" Then it says says like "If its your first time, restart. If you get this screen agian run a CHKDSK on /F." The F drive was my 500gig EXT Harddrive i recently installed. Has been working fine for the past few days. I finally shut off my comp and restart it and get this. I can get to the boot menu and stuff. Help please!!
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/228888 describes this stop error as being a corrupted ntfs partition. Run chkdsk /f on the partition that has windows xp on it. You can access the chkdsk program from a windows xp cd after booting the cd and entering recovery console.
I didn't have an XP CD. So I downloaded Hiren from another comp, burnt it onto a disk and booted from it. Then ran the mini win98 and ran a CHKDSK /F. Needless to say it fixed itself. I just learned how to do this to be honest. But thank you for the help.
