Question about Intel Desktop Board D845GERG2 Motherboard
When I turn on my computer it goes to a blue screen that reads x00004 fatal system error.. nothing i press on the keyboard ( DF1 or F12 ) helps. Its just frozen. Help!
Yes there is something you can do other than formatting and losing everything you have.
How many sticks of memory do you have installed on your computer? If there is more than one take one out at a time and see if the blue screen goes away to determine if any of the RAM sticks are bad.
If that doesn't work/make a difference:
See if you can goto a friends house and plug in your hdd and do a error check on it. If it passes transfer any data you may not want to lose, since a format is probably in order
If it doesn't pass, most likely you will need to replace HDD due to bad sectors. See if you can transfer anything off of it since HDD replacement is in order.
Back to your comptuer:
If everything checks out with your HDD, try booting off of a xp install cd and see if you can format your HDD,
Now if that doesn't work, the mainboard will most likely have to be replaced. Now would be a good time to replace your powersupply as well as these are fairly inexpensive. I would keep your old RAM and put back in new mainboard.
Basically, the worst case you may need to replace HDD, RAM, or motherboard. Either one is a fairly inexpensive solution.
