Question about Computers & Internet
I have a gateway 2000, with windows millenium, Pentium 2 processor, 266. 640 ram & 512 cache.
The computer was working fine for years. A heavy object recently fell on top of the tower. Now, when I turn it on it starts to boot like normal, but then it gives me this message in a blue screen, ”windows protection error. You need to restart your computer. System halted”
I have tried starting it but it keeps bringing me back to the same error message.
I have tried starting in the safe mode but it keeps bringing me back to the same error message!
I have tried starting in the normal mode but it keeps bringing me back to the same error message, thus the same loop keeps occurring!
I have reseated all the cards & most of the major plugs/wires, but it keeps bringing me back to the same error message!
RV101, well a lot things could happend with your System, but, I five and idea:
1) Hard disk Failure, ( time to buy new one)
2) video cable or card broke something----- (new one)
3) something is loose inside, open carefully, your pc and see if any cable is out, or broke, or disconected.

Use a win ME startup floppy disc. get to DOS and run scandisc.exe on c drive. if still no progress afterward, then repeat but this time, load cd driver and then re-install windows.
