First off, this may be a sign the drive is failing (Not 100% though).

Second you will need your windows cd to try to fix the issue.
You will need to boot into recovery console, and at the prompt use
fixboot and fixmbr, try to restart and see if the computer start up correctly.

El1358g-51w loaded drivers so far and then stopped error message read i had to restart and it would load and did not


You will have to reboot into safe mode to remove those drivers from the device manager and then reboot and allow windows to find the drivers it wants and not the drivers you think are the right ones because sometimes a flaky driver will stop windows cold and lock it into a loop forever.
If you do not know how to boot into safe mode, when you turn on your computer, the moment you see anything on your monitor start rapidly pressing the F8 key until you get a boot screen that has a choice of booting into safe mode, then follow the directions and when you finally get into windows go to the device manager, (in most windows will either be accessible from the control panel or from the control panel then clicking on system>then hardware tab>then device manager button.
Good luck!

How do you run CHKDSK /F with the blue screen stop error on my desktop?


You MUST have a boot device like CD, DVD, or USB. Use the install disc to access command prompt, by choosing the repair option. You could also download and burn a boot CD like Hirens.

The other option is to remove the drive and attach it as a slave or USB to another computer.

Boot selection failed cause of a required device is inaccessible


The problem you are dealing with may be because of the fact that you have your BIOS settings modified (its a little program that comes installed in your computer that chooses which piece of hardware to start up with).
To solve this issue make sure you have your computer turned off first and have all devices (like iPods and flash drives unplugged) and try to reboot. This may solve your issue.
If not:
Step 1: Turn on your computer and look at the very first screen that pops up. There should be a brief message on the screen that might say F2 (or some other button) would get you into the boot menu. Most manufacturers have F2 or F4 as the button to tap. So as soon as the computer starts tap either button immediately, over and over again until the screen changes.
Step 2: You should now be in the BIOS (for most users its some plan text screen that has a blue background). Navigate your way to the BOOT submenu. From there choose to have your hard drive as the boot device.
Step 3: Save settings and exit
Step 4: You should now be able to load Windows. If not, you may have selected the wrong device. Repeat steps 1 - 3 with a different device listed, until there are no other devices to choose from. If the problem persists, you may have a dead hard drive - at which point you will have to get your computer repaired.

There, you should change the order of your boot device.

set the first boot device to hard disk

set the second boot device to cd rom

and the third to floppy.

MY WINDOWS 2000 WONT BOOT UP (BLUE SCREEN SAYS INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE MESSAGE. TRIED SAFE MODE AND LAST KNOW GOOD SYSTEM (NO LUCK) PLEASE HELP. MY BUSINESS INFO IS IN THIS COMPUTER. THANKS KEVIN...


Unfortunately, it sounds like your hard drive is out. Or the boot track has been damaged. You can try a repair using the win 2000 cd. Read the following link :


http://www.techspot.com/vb/topic8356.html

Since it is your business computer, I would advise that you have the hard drive removed from the unit and have your data saved, before attempting any action.

Error while trying to install windows xp Stop: 0x0000007B on a dell Optiplex sx270


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.
In your case though, this is most likely one of 4 capacitors that are known to blow out on any SX270. Slide the bar at the back of your PC to the remove cover side and look inside for swollen caps. Remove the fans and cpu cover as well and check around there. Replace any bad ones you can find with old caps borrowed from an old motherboard if you have one, or new ones from any decent electronics parts warehouse. This fix has worked for me on every SX270 I have ever had.

My toshiba p105 with windows xp won't boot and i want to reformat it. I have the bootable disc but when I use the c key to boot from it, nothing happens and the usual message I have been getting, We are...


What you want to do in this matter is, go into the BIOS if you haven't done that already, and change the boot device priority to CD. You want to do the following right when you startup the computer, and without the CD in the drive. BIOS/Setup Utility, can usually be found be pressing the delete key at startup, or the F12 key at startup, so push one of those two keys a few times to get to the BIOS utility. The setting to change the boot order of devices is usually one of the menu options at the top of the screen, closer to the right side. Once you find how to change the boot order, change the first device that the computer boots to to the CD you've got, insert your CD, save the BIOS settings and exit, and you should be set to go.
