startup error!!!!!!



Im having problems with my computer whenever I turn it on. I ALWAYS get the BSOD!!!!.....XP doesnt load it just takes me to the BSOD...but its the same error each time....

stop: c0000221
unknown hard error

But when i restart my computer it takes me to the boot options and i just go to start windows normally and my computer works fine after that...

Anyone have any ideas what might be wrong?? I have reformatted and reinstalled XP numerous times and still get the BSOD!...could be a hardware problem??....if anyone knows what the BSOD could me out...thanks!!!

it seems to be a file integrity problem according to what I could find. have you tried running a COMPLETE diskscan and chkdsk -f ? it could be a harddrive or ram problem, what the error basically means is that when windows is checking the core components that file is showing that it's corrupted =/

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
