    It maybe a damaged file system.
    To fix it, please follow this 2 step methtod: 1. boot from the XP cd and lanuch the Recovery Console 2. Type chkdsk /r at the command prompt and when it is finished, Type exit to reboot and if it doesen't work, Go back to the console and type fixboot instead of chkdsk

    Welcome to the forums ViperSnake. :)

    Just a bit more for you Nismo83. If the above doesn't do it see if this applies.

    ""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 error screen, restart your computer. If this screen apppears 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 of software manuufacturer for any windows update you might need.

    If the 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 disable compontents, restart your computer, press F8 to select Advanced Startup Options, and then select Safe Mode.""
