The error you are receiving is indicating that the Windows Operating System settings cannot be located on your hard drive to complete the loading of Windows. There are several possible causes, starting with a hardware failure of the hard drive. Others could involve a corruption of the registry due to unknown causes.

The first thing to try is the F8 menu during boot (Start tapping F8 when you see the Gateway Splash Screen) and try to boot to the SAFE MODE. If that fails, boot to F8 again and select the Last Known Good option on the menu.

If that fails to boot to windows, then recovering the OS doesn't look to optimistic. Other options are bootcfg /rebuild to check and see if the boot.ini file is corrupted

http://support.microsoft.com/kb/291980/en-us

and if that fails I suggest running diagnostics on the hard drive.

A longer shot at recovering the OS is what is known as a HIVE copy in the recovery console. This is essentially a system restore done manually in the recovery console, and is the last ditch effort before reinstalling Windows. Steps for Hive copy are at the bottom of this post:

APROBLEM HAS BEEN DETECTED AND WINDOWS HAS BEEN SHUT DOWN TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER


While you may not be using a Windows 2000 computer, the error/cause is probably similar: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/256841
Try to manually install the Standard PC hardware abstraction layer (HAL):
  1. Reboot the computer to restart Setup.
  2. When Setup starts again, press F7 when you see the "Press F6 if you need to install a third-party SCSI or RAID driver" screen.
Windows automatically disables the installation of the ACPI HAL and installs the Standard PC HAL. You should also contact the manufacturer of your computer to obtain a BIOS that is fully ACPI compliant.

How to detect viruses easily?


1- Go to start-run-command
2- Write cd.. (notice the tow dots) and press enterwrite cd.. (again) and press enter
3- Write (cd windows) and press enter
4- Write (cd system32) and press enter
5- Write (setup) and enterIf you get that message

(Please switch to the control panel to install components and systems composition)
Then that means your pc is clean.
The idea here is the (setup) file which is located within(system32) is shut down when your pc
infected and open when your pc isnot infected because mostviruses shut down all system.exe extensions. I’ve tried it and it worked!

Hi it looks like you have something preventing windows from starting up

Try the following

1) Remove all peripherals you may have attached i.e. printers, fax machines etc etc

2) if it still fails then remove the 3 pin lead from the back of the Tower/PC and press and hold in the power button for 20 seconds (yes i know there is no power going to it)

If all else fails then im afraid your looking at a system restore

How do i fix blue scree error tha reads stop:0x0000007E


is this a recurring problem. There isn't much you can do, usually a software crash causes this,
maybe defrag the computer, uninstall any unneccary software, run a virus scan, etc. Sometimes it just happens, if it happening all the time, there maybe a hardware problem, or you may need to restore to factory settings.

Windows has shut down my computer. It said the following: A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. I need to know how to get out of this


Try to start in safe mode. On some computers it is F5 or F8 during boot. Hitting delete while booting will open setup which may get you to safe mode. Once there, you need to do virus checking, and stuff like that.
