Well today my laptop was working fine, I turned it off (Shutdown) and I turned it back on later today. When I turned it on right before the Windows login screen I get the following message: 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 Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps: Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need. If problems continue, disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software. Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disbale components, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup options, and then select Safe Mode. Technical Information: *** STOP: 0x0000000ED (0x82327E30, 0xC000009C, 0x00000000, 0x00000000) So kind of scared I restarted my computer and recieved the same message. I read on the forums that if I have my OS install disk I can run a check on the system to see if there is errors or I can fix missing files. I got my install disk and hit F2 to enter SETUP. I did not have an option in my BIOS to diable Caching or Shadowing (At least I didn't see one). I tried to boot my CD/DVD drive however it simply won't load. This caused me concern as I won't be able to install anything even if I did not wan't to loose my files. If anyone has a workaround or fix for this I would greatly appreciate it (Alot). I also heard that changing the order of my startup so that my CD/DVD drive boots first instead of my HDD could work however I do not see an option to do this. My OS is "Windows XP Professional, Media Center Edition" It is a "TOSHIBA EQUIUM M50" with 512MB RAM" HELP!
