BSoD and can't do anything about it, or I can't as far as I know

  1. Hey everyone, I'm new to the forums here and I was wondering if you guys can help me.

    On my laptop, everytime I turn it on, it goes to the Windows XP loading thing [the blue slider that's continuously looping] and then it gives me a BSoD. I have a chance to choose if I want to go to safe mode or not, but that just gives the same BSoD.

    The laptop is running WinXP Professional SP2.

    The BSoD says to run a Chkdisk /F or to remove any anti-virus programs, but I can't do any of that since I can't even get to my user-select screen.

    STOP - 0x00000024 (0x00190203, 0x86FA7EF0, 0xC0000102, 0x00000000)

    That is what I see, with some variations with the third set of numbers [0x86...] depending on which option I take [ie. safe mode vs normal mode].

    And I'm definitely not computer savvy, so when giving advice, please please elaborate xD Thanks!
