  1. This is a post on another forum. I'm starting to think its not with the hard drive now. I tried booting windows XP via cd and got this message:


    Code:
    A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer
    
    If this is the first time you've seen this error stop screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again follow these steps:
    
    Check for viruses on your computer: Remove any newly installed hard drives or hard drive controllers. Check your hard drive to make sure it is properly configured and terminated. Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, and then restart your computer
    
    Technical information: 
    *** STOP: 0X0000007B (0XF7934524, 0XC0000034, 0X0000000, 0X0000000)
    Of course the background is the blue screen of death... anyone have any ideas why this is happening? Everything is stock from Compaq except the video card which should not effect the installation of windows XP or keep it from running... Corrupt hard drive that needs replacing maybe?
