If you are running windows, Insert your windows cd and set computer to start from cd. When prompted to, hit a key to boot from CD. Let Windows start the install (relax it is not really installing anything) when it gets to the prompt tell it you want to Repair an existing installation. Then pick the prompt that gets you the recovery console. When you get to the prompt type CHKDSK /R and let it run. Sometimes this can take an hour or more depending on the size of your drive. Do not get worried if the percentages complete go backwards, like from 70% back to 50%. Sometimes it will go back and fix files. Hopefully you will not get the error that there are unrecoverable errors. This has worked for me on about 90% of the hard drives that I received the inaccessible boot device.

Blue screen death


Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death, especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
Return hardware settings to default in Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so,the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set
to default. Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause a Blue Screen of Death.
Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
If it didn't helps you then simply get the system utility program like PC Fresher that will fix windows errors that cause of blue screen

My computer says stop: 0x00000024 (0x00190203,0x86f6e330,0xc0000102,0x00000000) `


The most important Blue Screen of Death troubleshooting step you can take is to ask yourself what you just did.:
1) Did you just install a new program or a piece of hardware, update a driver, install an update, etc.? If so, there's a very good chance that the change you made caused the BSOD:Startup using Last Known Good Configuration to undo recent registry and driver changes.Use System Restore to undo recent system changes.Roll Back device driver to version prior to your driver update.
2) Scan your computer for viruses. Some viruses can cause a Blue Screen of Death, especially ones that infect the master boot record (MBR) or boot sector.
3) Update drivers for your hardware. Most Blue Screens of Death are hardware or driver related so updated drivers could fix the cause of the STOP error.
4) Return hardware settings to default in Device Manager. Unless you have a specific reason to do so, the system resources that an individual piece of hardware is configured to use in Device Manager should be set to default.
Non-default hardware settings have been known to cause a Blue Screen of Death.
5) Return BIOS settings to their default levels. An overclocked or misconfigured BIOS can cause all sorts of random issues, including BSODs.
6) Use Reginout to fix BSOD stop errors

When i am trying to instaling win xp .getting a error message like stop 0x00000007B in a blue screen


hello Shameeralipk,

The most popular Blue Screen of Death error in Windows is the STOP 0x0000007B error, sometimes called the 0x7b error or the "INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE" BSOD.

This BSOD (which is actually the common name for a STOP Error) could mean that there's a serious hardware problem with a hard drive controller, a driver issue, or even a boot sector virus.

I bought my wife this laptop (emachines G640)only a few weeks ago we've had a few issues at start up when it goes to the blue screen and the the screen where it says there was an issue and to start...


The stop error screen or bug check screen commonly called the blue screen of death (also known as a BSoD, bluescreen, or "blue screen of doom.

slasher_x_22.jpg
In reality, the most common cause of blue screen errors is a device driver problem. Outdated, incorrect or corrupt drivers can cause the system to encounter a STOP error, resulting in the BSOD.
Often, if you're lucky, the problem will resolve itself with a simple reboot and you may never have to worry about it again. More typically though, the BSOD is a harbinger of trouble and you may find yourself faced with another and another until you throw up your hands in frustration... but all is not lost.

So the easiest way to try and fix a blue screen error is to reinstall and update your system's device drivers. This is if you are able to boot into safe mode (Press and hold the F8 key during boot up). This will ensure that all driver bugs are fixed and that all hardware has the correct driver. If you know which device caused the error, you can update or reinstall that driver first. The file name in the blue screen of death can help identify the driver. Look for a file with the .SYS extension and search for that file name. There is a neat program on the net that can fix this problem, it's called DriverFinder, you can get it here.

If this doesn't work or you can't think or find the corrupt driver you could use System Restore (If it is enabled) to go back to a time where you didn't get the error. To use the system restore utility, go to 'start/all programs/accessories/system tools/system restore.

Sometimes though the blue Screen of death can be caused by faulty or loose rame cards. Check that your RAM modules are inserted correctly and arn't clogged with dust.

IBM T20,inaccessible boot device


The Innaccessable Boot Device message means one of 2 things:

1: your hard drive has died - not much here, must replace drive.

2: The master boot record has become corrupt. Without any media, this will be hard to fix. You will need to boot to the Windows CD and either run the recovery console or perform a windows repair to fix this issue.

Safe mode boots okay but not in normal boot - no error either


Do you have the original recovery disk? I recommend inserting the recover disk, restart the computer while continually pressing F12. Select boot from CD, press any key when asked, and you would want to do a "repair". That should fix your problem.
