Question about Computers & Internet
When I try to bring my daughters computer up a blue screen pop's up saying basicly it experienced a problem and it could be caused from new soft ware or new hard ware being loaded. I did neither one of those. and at the bottom of the message it gives me these numbers.
Stop: oxoooo C1F5 (oxoooooooo,oxoooooooo,oxoooooooo,oxoooooooo)
Then if I press F1 when I try to bring the computer up it gives me a new screen that allows me to press F8 and bring up diagnostics and differant ways to bring up the computer for example safe mode or de bugging and several other choices. When I try either of those I get the following list of numbers SATA O : ST3250820AS . 3 . ANG
SATA 1 :HL-DT-ST CD-RW,DVD-ROM GCC-H10N C103
SATA 2 none
ASATA 3 none
Diskette drive 0 seek failure.
I have no idea what it is trying to tell me. I would greatley appreciate your help in this so that I can get my daughters computer back up.
The message 'Diskette drive 0 seek failure.' is saying that there is any error trying to read 'drive 0'. As you can see from the list, drive 0 is 'ST3250820AS . 3 . ANG'. That is your hard drive that stores all of your information. Your other drive that's coming up is 'drive 1' or 'SATA 1' and that is your DVD/CD-RW. So basically your hard drive can't be read and therefore the PC can't be started. If there is data that you need on the PC I would advise contacting either a local PC shop to try and get your data recovered and put onto a new hard drive if they find that the drive is faulty. If you don't have any data on there that is essential, try reinstalling the operating system by starting up the PC with your recovery disk or operating system disk and following the directions. Make sure you read the instructions properly to insure that you install properly.
