    Cant Boot from C

    The first boot of the day brought a BSOD with the foll error msg:

    Stop : 0x00000051 ( 0x00000004, Ox00000001,0xE1032488,0x0009C700).

    this is the first BSOD I have had on this comp.

    Though I can access the C drive by booting into my other operating system windows does not allow me to reformat C,or even to refresh it by re-installing over the existing partition.

    I had just replaced my old ram with a new one,and swapped them back and forth and also borrowed other ram but to no avail

    Any suggestions /advice .

    TIA

    Big Richard - thanks for the input but they relate to w2k and I am running XP home.

    Can you conjure a magical fix, easy to understand and apply.

    As far as the Blue screens are concerned your welcome to all of them.

    Presuming XP is the OS that wont boot?

    Ok. Win XP full version CD in the disk drive and set mobo to boot from cd in bios.

    Run cd and chose to instal. Iirc it comes up asking to choose the drive first - chose the c drive, and then it should give you an option to 'repair'.

    Choose repair, let it sort it out and then install sp1 and all the patches since (not nice) and possibly media player 9 etc. Check your 3Dmk 2001 (or prefered benchmark/sandra/soap etc) score to check drivers are all still there and away you go.

    Edit: Warning, quite possibly wiping out your dual boot in the process? I've not done a repair on a dual boot system before, but I've got a feeling its going to do this.

    As long as the other OS is a Windows OS then XP will put it in the boot list for you, so you wont lose your multi-boot options.

    If its *nix then you will need to use a boot disk and re-run Lilo or Grub to rechange the MBR or whatever.
