I was on my computer today all nice and fine. I turned it off, and then came back later and turned it on. Well, of course it didn't wuite get real far. It got to the "Windows did not start up succesfully" garbage. Gave me Safe mode, safe mode wih networking, last known good config....etc. Well, I've tried them all and nothing... I put the disk in and changed the boot sequence to CD first. I didn't get real far. I'm in the recovery deal and don't know what to do!!!!! HELP!!!! BTW this is the second time my pc freaked out on my within 2 days.

Thanks in advanced!

there really isn't anything that important on the actual hardrive. Most of my data is online. It's just a leasure "gaming" PC I built a couple of years ago. The only real bummer would be losing all of my photos and music. But I just realied I have all of that stored on my iPod. This is just another reason to get another HD.

"CHKDSK found and fixed one or more errors on the volume.

36116156 kilobytes are available.

4096 bytes in each allocation unit.

ALRIGHT!!! Thank you so much. It's been a while since I've been on this site and thank God I remembered it. Everything seems to be alright.

One thing, I took out 1gb of RAM during this just to see if the sticks were faulty, how should I go about putting them back in without this happening all over again? Same with my RAM cooling fans.

Also, should I restart (or turn off/on) my PC now that it is working again to see if it stays working?

well make sure you power off your computer first and unplug power from wall. Install ram and fans. Plug in to power and turn on computer.
