Re: Blue screen / stop error message on boot-up
What is the brand of hdd? Most manufacturers have disk checking utilities on their sites for d/load that run from a bootable floppy. Sounds like a dying hdd to me, can you try a different hdd? Also check that all ide/sata cables (whichever you have) are firmly plugged in, try swapping cables too as a dodgy cable will give this error.
