  1. I have Windows XP and recently when i tried to restart my computer it gave me a message showing "fatal error" somthing and would not load any further. I tried many times repeatedly but still no change.

    Then i inserted my OS cd to reload the whole operating system, and it would start installing but after 10%, 16%, or even 40% it would go to a blue screen which says :

    "A PROBLEM HAS BEEN DETECTED AND WINDOWS HAS SHUT DOWN TO PREVENT DAMAGE

    THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO BE CAUSED BY THE FOLLOWING FILE: PARTMGR.SYS

    DRIVER_UNLOADED_WITHOUT_CANCELING_PENDING_OPERATIONS


    TECNICAL INFORMATION:

    *** STOP: 0x000000CE (0xF87c0667, 0x00000000, 0xF87c0667, 0x00000000)

    PARTMGR.SYS"




    if someone can PLEASE HELP ME, i would really appreciate it. I am away from home at college [1st yr] and i really need my computer for my masters program, i can only use my friends for so long. PLEASE HELP!! any kind of feedback would be nice. thx!!!!



    ps i also have a picture of the blue screen if someone wants to see it, i dont know how to post it on here though
