Re: Need help getting pass the blue screen
Here, here,here and here are some excellent resources that will help you to troubleshoot the stop error codes (blue screens). If you reply with the exact code # you are getting, we can give you more detailed help, but you should be able to run chkdsk from the recovery console (if you have it installed, it would appear as a boot option (breifly) when you boot your system, or by pressing F8 as it boots up. For more info about recovery console see here and here. You can also run chkdsk from an installation cd if you boot the system from the install or recovery disc instead of the hard drive. See instructions to run chkdsk here and here.

There are many possible reasons for a blue screen at windows xp.the most likely ones are:damaged windows instalation - in which case you will need to reinstall windows.damaged physical drive - in which case you would need to get a new hard drivethe OS cannot access memory - could be RAM memory or HDD. I'm guessing you would just need to re-install the windows. You are most likely to lose all data.
what is the error code on the bluescreen?
have you tried a chkdsk?
if your able to boot to recovery mode.
type chkdsk /r
to repair your hard drive.
there may be corrupted files.
otherwise please let me know what the error is on your BSOD.
It sounds like your operating system has been corrupted either from software errors or a failing hard drive. In some cases you can boot into Safe Mode by pressing F8 during boot. Then you can run a disk error utility to hopefully fix the error. If you do have to reload Windows from scratch, I would recommend installing a new hard disk as they tend to fail after 2 or 3 years from normal use.
Hi,well these should work for you,to get to safe mode,power up the system as the IBM thinkpad logo is about to be displayed press the F8 key just before the Windows loading screen comes up so as to get to safe mode.if it does not work try reloading the operating system using operating system disc.
Sometimes the blue screen can be caused by bad memory, but if it is doing it right when you try to sign in every time, it is probably a software corruption in windows. I have solved this problem by doing a repair install of windows xp, I am not sure if is an option on other os, if you google it you will find directions, you boot off the windows install disk and this option saves your programs and data.
Sounds like you have a bad hard drive. Boot up with a Windows CD and select repair at the setup menu. It should dump you to a command line. Type "chkdsk /f" without the quotes and it will check the hard drive for errors. When it's done, reboot normally and it should get you into windows. If it doesn't, replace the hard drive and install windows on the new HDD.
You can download the software known as Active boot disk. With this you can create a bootable cd to run a chkdsk with the f and r command to fix and recover errors on disk. you can also explore your comp and copy files to an external disk. If after the system boots normally after chkdsk you might have a problem with your HDD get it replaced before it crashes again
This solution is for s-k-i-t: you will have to get a copy of the
win xp install disk to fix this problem (you can borrow one as long as
you have a COA on your laptop) but first get into the BIOS by pressing
F1 right after you turn it on - you'll see the prompt in lower left
corner. Then go to startup>boot>hard drive>Enter.
This will show you the type of hard drive. If it is a IBM or
Hitachi less than 60 gig chances are it is failing and this is why the
hives (where XP stores its memory states) are corrupt. You can
download the "Ultimate boot disk" and make a CD that will let you run
hard drive test tools. If the hard drive is bad I would try to
get the eBay seller to make good - depends on how long you've had it.
