Question about Sony VAIO Digital Studio PCV-RX550 PC Desktop
When I attempt to start my computer I get the error above. I attempted to go into SafeMode, I then would get a screen almost resembling the BIOS with
details about the computer, it would give me a count down, then the screen would start showing all the Window products: Windows.dll, Windows.exe, a whole list going down the screen. Afterwards it would look like the computer would boot because I would get the Windows XP screen, then the deadly cycle would happen again where I would get the error message above.
I simply want to be able to retrieve the information off the hard drive if that is possible. Please help!
There are two options to retrieve data: remove the drive and use it on an external box in another pc, or use an OS that boots from cd, like KUBUNTU, and record it in cds or dvds (though only LINUX systems will read them).
As for the causes, it might be a hardware fault (damaged HDD) or simply some driver you've updated recently and is giving hardware some suicide commands. And don't send it for repair if you have sensitive data in there, unless you can be there through the whole process.

Tips for a great answer:
One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect your hard drive
Test or replace all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA
the leads from your motherboard to your hard drive make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
you could run the check disk utility
click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to repair any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive then defragment your hard drive
hope this helps
