Cannot get the meaning of windows error



If you can get your computer to boot until the desktop, go to start, type run, hit enter and then type chkdsk /r and hit enter again. This will run a check disk to find and correct any bad sectors of your hard drive. You will be required to reboot your computer.

If you cannot access your desktop at the normal mode then try starting your computer in safe mode (hit f8 during start up to get the option to run the computer in safe mode). Now run the chkdsk utility.

If you still cannot access your desktop, you can run chkdsk from your windows CD. Just boot your computer from that CD. You can change your boot order by accessing the bios. During start up you can be asked to press f12 or any key to access the boot menu. From there select boot from CD, and the windows set up menu will appear. Select the second option, i.e. To repair a Windows XP installation using Recovery Console, press R. Then press R. Then select the installation you wish to repair which in most cases is only one option. Select 1. You will have something like this:

You will then be required to enter an administrator password which I assume you have. And then next to C:WINDOWS, type chkdsk /r so that you have something like this:

C:WINDOWS>chkdsk /r

Chkdsk will run but I have to warn you that it will take long depending on the number of file that you have in your computer or the magnitude of the hard drive problem.

Hope this helps.

Hello Noel,

The error that you are getting is a serious Windows event that could be associated with a blue screen, unsuccessful start-up attempts as well as limited system functioning. Its causes could be things like installing incompatible software, internal corruption of the system, faulty drivers, severe virus infection, or sometimes lack of memory. 

To resolve that issue, you might need to replace the battery on the motherboard that is responsible for the CMOS. That is a serious error and therefore you will need to take action immediately to avoid potential memory loss and more system damage. 

Hope this helps.
