That can point to dirty CD LENS, old drives or bad CD. What parts are you willing to replace?
Had posted this in the Desktops forum, but it was suggested to me that I might have more luck posting here, so here goes...
Long story short, as my 3-year old Dell XPS desktop was loading up on Friday night, I foolishly went to plug my camera into the USB before it was finished and I believe that it what may have hung the process. In any event, my computer had frozen so I rebooted and I have been unable to load up Windows since. When I try to boot, I get the following blue screen message (among lots of other, less important text):
"A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
STOP: 0x000000D1 (0x00000034, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0xF72D8019)
iastor.sys - Address F72D8019 base at F72C5000, DateStamp 42b2df42"
FYI, I did try loading up the computer with the OS reinstallation CD in the disc drive and it did nothing, didn't even seem to detect it was in there. Got the same blue screen, and subsequent black screen (with options to boot into Safe Mode or Use Last Good Configuration) that I had before, and again, none of those work.
How can I resussitate my system (and keep my data)? Any suggestions?
