No Boot up Blue screen with message

Aspire one Zg5
February 28, 2010 at 17:36:04
Specs: Windows XP, Dell XPS 400 2.8 / 3k ram
Aspire One ZG5 / 160GB HD / 1K ddr2 ram WindowsXP home edition,

Ok I got this from my son who claims it just happend lol well we all know that can but.... Anyways I boot it up and it goes to a blue screen right after windows trys to boot, saying

Check for Viruses on you computer!
Remove any Newly Installed Hard drives, or Hard Drive Controllers... (which there isn't any newly installed)
Check to see your hard drive is Properly configured and Terminated <<not sure what they mean there
Run CHKDSK /F to check for Hard Drive Corruption and then restart your computer!

Well I cant get into windows to run CHKDSK not thru safe mode or any other when I try it resorts back to the above mentioned. I had connected a USB drive and ran a windows XP disc I have and it all loads up and says Starting Windows, then about 20 seconds I get the above mentioned message again, that Windows has been closed down to protect your computer from damage and check all the above mentioned??
then at the end of that article is more message then with out the disc in and it reads
***stop: 0x00000079 (0XF7AFA63C),0x00000034, 0x00000000,0x00000000
So do I replace the hard drive? Its a 160GB drive the computer has 1k of ddr2 ram installed I dont know where to turn, Could a virus destroy the HD? Any help will be greatly appreciated, Thanks everyone in advance!

Hi,
Are you actually getting into your Windows XP Installation CD? Or is it kind of skipping it and going to start Windows XP. Because I don't think that the installation CD should crash with that message.

Once you get into your installation CD you can get to the recovery console. From there you can run CHKDSK.

It could be a virus, a bad hard drive, or bad memory. You can check if it's bad hardware with

hope that helps.

I ran the copy of 'windows Home edition thru a use connected drive to the notebook set the boot up options to CD/rom and the drive ran just like it should, loading all the files and drivers etc etc then it says starting windows and Im waiting for it to open the program to ask what I want to do (repair, or install new) and bamb the blue screen comes up and says what I mentioned earlier and I have to reboot all over again, with no luck, so.... im going to check with the link you talked about above then go from there see what happens I'll re posts after I try it, i dont have any memory or HD to swap out and check so I'd like to find out what I need before I go and purchase anything,
bbl thanks!!

It's most likely a virus, not a hardware problem. And reinstalling Windows won't kill the virus unless you format 1st. Try a virus scan from a bootable disc such the Ultimate Boot CD that was mentioned.

Jam,

I think that a virus would explain crashing while windows is booting, but not crashing while the installation CD is booting up. I'm thinking that something like that could only be caused by a hardware failure - most likely the memory.
