can anyone shed some light on this problem ?
Can someone PLEASE help .. i have a serious problem, this is on my business machine FFS
Ok, lets try the obvious stuff like safe mode?
If not, boot from the WindowsXP / 2000 CD and choose recovery console.
Login to the console via the administrator account (it will just prompt you for your password, then run chkdsk.
Yeah, is this happening during bootup, or at a random time?
it happens every time, i can gain access through safe mode, and i have run a chdsk,
and defrag, still nothing and i cant boot from the cd's either
Well if nothing else, at least you still have access to your data.
Perhaps try reinstalling chipset drivers and making sure your system is full up to date.
I think personally I would also be looking at my RAM and system temperatures - has the machine been running any hotter? Can you run successful memtest86 runs consistently? If you have two sticks or more it may be worthwhile trying swapping each one at a time to see if that fixes the problem - I am only saying this because it was the cause of 7E problems on a new machine I had until I changed the RAM.
Take it to a puter shop, make sure you remove nething you don't want them to see, like tax returns, invoices, anything else you wish to keep a secret.
yeah i have taken it to the pc shop ... wee what they can do, and luckly i was able to backup my business files.
thanks for your help fellas
