Question about HP Computers & Internet
The easiest thing to check is to unplug any USB drive type devices (say
the MP3 player) before starting Windows and see if that helps. If not
then it sounds like something on the harddrive was messed up.
You could try holding F8 at boot to get the boot menu. Select Safe Mode and see if that will boot. If it does, answer yes to the popup question and then do Start'Run and type in:
to get a command prompt. In the command prompt type:
chkdsk c: /f
It should say that it can't check the drive right now (since Windows is running off that drive) and ask if you want to check it at boot. Answer with a y. Then reboot, let it try to startup normally, and chkdsk should run and check the drive for errors.
If that doesn't work (can't boot safe mode) and If you've got a Windows CD, (XP SP2 version disc may be needed if you have really large harddrives, doesn't have to be the disc used to install Windows on that computer) you could try booting it and go into the Recovery Console. (Basically a dos prompt type thing.)
chkdsk c: /p
It should check the harddrive for errors and if it finds some will try and fix them. If when it's done it says it found and fixed one or more errors, then I'd do it again and see if it says it found one or more errors. (If it doesn't say that it found errors the second time then, hopefully, that means it fixed the errors it previously found. If it keeps finding errors every time you run it then that may indicate that the drive is failing.) In any case, running chkdsk once as above may help you get into Windows. (I'd still have it do chkdsk c: /f on reboot as above after booting Windows, just to be on the safe side.) You will need to have set a password for the Administrator account to do the Recovery Console though. (Administrator account is accessible when booting in Safe Mode.)
If you can get Windows booting (by any method) one thing you can do that might help prevent this from happening in the future is to disable disc caching for the MP3 player.
Plug the device in, right click the "Safely Remove Hardware" icon and choose "Safely Remove Hardware."
Check the Display Device Components box if it's not checked.
Find the MP3 player in the list (likely under USB Mass Storage Devices) and click it.
Then click the Properties button. On the properties window click Policies and set it to "Optimize for Quick Removal" and click OK.
From now on (at least on that computer) you should be able to remove the MP3 player without using the Safely Remove Hardware tray icon, as long the computer's not actually accessing files on the drive.
