Hi i started my computer yesterday, when loading xp (black screen, xp logo in the middle, blue bar moving left to right), suddenly it restarted. It keeps on restarting the computer without managing to go to windows screen. So i decided to do a windows recovery, i booted from my xp cd, then i pressed f6 and selected xp option and the computer recognized my hard drive from my floopy. Then the blue xp setup screen came along. Now i have three options, i selected the first as stated on your windows xp recovery forum. Then this information following comes along for one second: examining 286182mb disk at id 0 on bus 0 on interaid then suddenly this information: xxx stop: 0x00000024 (0x001902FE, 0xF7CA6B74, 0xF7CA6870, 0xF742C746) xxx ntfs, stys_adress F742C746 base at F741B000, Datestamp 41107eea From this i have no other option but to restart, so i did and this time i pressed the 2nd option on the xp setup which is the recovery, still the same information. I have also tried all start options which are normal, last known good config, safty mode and the other two safty mode options, all of the 5 options restarts during loading my xp proffessional. I had a blue screen problem about 3 months ago, but i was able to use the xp cd and recovery and did a CHKDSK to sort the problem. Three weeks ago i used diskeeper to degrag my hard drive, after one week i uninstalled this as it was a trial. I have had no problems starting the pc for the last two weeks. Please help!
