When trying to restart, Windows would begin to load, and then the BSOD would appear with above info. I have tried booting from Install CD (Win XP Pro SP3) and choosing R for repair, trying CHKDSK, /P, /R, /F, Fixmbr, Fixboot, and yet every result is that it can not write to it. There is no other partition, but C:. Have ran Drivers and Utilities CD (OEM), and found IDE Disk S/N # S.M.A.R.T long Test Failure Error code: 0F00:075B (..electrical portion.) and 0F00:065B (..electrical portion.) the last time I ran it. During that extended test, that error showed up 5 times I did not see this coming, and have not yet backed up data....Please advise. I have some experience, but not too in depth. I have (1) 120 GB external hard drive. Thank you.
