i got acer aspire m1641 with standard specs..i had try to installed with cd xp pro sp2 but still the blue screen comes up after 'Setup is starting windows' at the bottom..it sounds like this : 'A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. If this is teh first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps : Check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corroption, and then restart your computer. Technical information : *** STOP: 0x0000007B (0xF7934524, 0xc0000034, 0x00000000, 0x00000000)' I had try a million times changing setup, try to detect the hard disk error using other cpu and no damage of it..is it the bios that need to be update or the memory or the hard disk itself..PLEASE !!
