Reboot Loop, BSOD - Urgent

August 27, 2012 at 05:24:27
Specs: Windows XP, Pentium 4 2GHx
I have a Windows XP home 2002 edition, Pentium 4, and for some reason I got the BSOD when trying to connect an old mouse in to the back of the computer. My computer instantly turned off and when I turned on the computer, I'm in a loop where I can't go in safe mode, or any other option under f8. I then tried to use the recovery console to repair/reinstall windows but it gets stuck at "examining 39206 MB Disk 0 at Id 0 on bus 0 on atapi..." for endless hours. Remember, I can't log on or anything. What can I do? Thanks!

BSOD Error:
stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x8A7CB648, 0xCoooo102, 0x00000000)

Create a hard drive diagnostics disc, boot off it, & test the condition of the drive. If it's bad, it will have to be replaced.

Stop error 0x00000024 indicates an error in the NTFS file system. It may simply require running a disk check to correct it, or it may have a more serious cause such as a failed hard drive.

To run the disk check (chkdsk.exe) when Windows won't start requires using the Recovery Console:

To test for a failed hard drive, use the Hitach Drive Fitness Test (it can test any brand of hard drive) which runs from a bootable CD. Click the direct link for Drive Fitness Test CD Image here:

Create a CD from the CD Image file and boot your faulty PC from it.
You can use IMGBurn to create the create the CD:

Hi guys, I did it, but i'm stuck again. After the ''end user licence agreement'' it shows to me ''The following list shows the existing partitions and unpartitioned space on this computer. to install press enter, to create a partition to unpartitioned space press c, to delete the chosen partition press d'' and then it shows me the partitions. It suppose to show something about repairing windows. What is this?

When you initially boot from the CD, press R to enter Recovery Console.
