    Bugcheck 0x24 refers to some problem with the NTFS file system - the hard drive.

    Run chkdsk /r then re-boot. chkdsk will run upon system boot-up.

    Regards. . .

    It is always necessary to tell us what operating system you're using. Not only are the path for performing a function different, but the meaning of an error message can be different.

    The Event Viewer is always a good place to get information. If you checked yours, you would likely see something like this:
    Direction for Windows XP:

    Start> Run> type in eventvwr

    Most of the problems leading to this event indicate faulty hardware, bugs in device drivers or incompatible hardware.

    NOTE: You will be looking for the Error corresponding to the time of the error message. Please do not paste the entire log. And you don't need to include the lines of code-if any-in the box below the Description.

    To do the Check Disc (Error Check)
    My Computer> right click on Local Drive- usually C> Properties> Tools tab> Error Check> check both boxes on screen that comes up (fix and scan)> Apply> OK> Close the nag message and reboot.

    The error checking will begin in a few seconds. IF you haven't done this before, it will take a while. Let it finish. The system will reboot itself when through.

    Let u know status after this has completed. Please include the OS (Win XP?, Vista?)
