i would like to apologise as i know this has been posted before,but i'm very new to computers and do not completely understand the answers given. i get this error doing normal activities, and i get a blue screen with this the above error. i have read some of the answers here but do not completely understand the answers here i have read it could be a hard drive has gone bad? i was walked through a chkdsk /r scan but i'm not sure if it helped or not, do i need to do another one? is there something i can do after that? also i should mention that i have 2 hard drives, and i'm running windows 7.
