Question about IBM ThinkPad T40 2373 Notebook
Hello, my pc's antivirus/antispyware system (panda) periodically asks me to get updates for windows and yesterday it asked me to do an update urgently. It took my system about 1/2 hour to update and when trying to access windows it came up with the same error message. The technical info is as follows: STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x82A10020, 0x82A10194, 0x805FA7A8)... I have windows office professional xp installed and I believe the system was trying to install service pack 3 when this happened...
Would anybody know how to resolve this problem? Should I restore the harddisk? I haven't got a clue. Thanks so much!!! Julia
I didn't see anyone mention it, so, reset the BIOS (check manufacturers' site for instructions), and see if that helps.

Okay, first, try to boot to Safe Mode (hit F8 while booting) and run System Restore. Go back to a day or two before your issue occurred.
Once restored, open up My Computer, right click on your C Drive, then click "Properties", then the "Tools" tab, then under "Error Checking" click "Check Now". Then, reboot so it can run the scan. You might have a hard drive issue that Chkdsk can resolve. Post back with how this goes.
