    hello...this is where my nightmare begins. I turned on my pc, and it would not let me get past start up, saying
    file :\Windows\system32\ntkrnlpa.exe
    status : 0xc00000e9 Info:
    Windows failed to load because the kernel is missing, or corrupt

    I tried a few things, mostly the startup repair option that it would (recommend) to me next to the start windows normally option. this did absolutely NOTHING, and the problem continued. so I said ok, I give up, and decided to back up everything and completely reformat and reinstall windows....I did this, it installed successfully so I was happy....then the real nightmare started.....IT DIDNT FIX THE PROBLEM!!!!!!!!! I couldnt believe it...even after completely reformatting, I could not get past start up...the syste repair option still does nothing, even with the disc in...and im starting to lose all hope. tried reinstalling it a bunch of times....but now it wont even do that correct all the way through, keeps coming up with errors talking about files either missing or corrupt...so my pc is stuck in limbo...i wiiped partitions and tried again alot of times....but nothing...now it doesnt even recognize windows 7 as being installed at all.......SOMEBODY PLEASE HELP!!! :'(


    also um....please read this before replying

    Hi, I've just looked through the other thread you gave the link for and was suprised that only one person suggested it might be due to a failing hard drive.

    Run the hard drive diagnostics from the manufacturer to make sure your hard drive is in good health. It seems to me that this is the most obvious reason for all the problems.

    wow I must be really screwed. downloaded and burned to CD the one I needed from WD, and ran the quick scan from boot. this almost auotomatically failed, then asked if I wanted to do a full media scan so i said yes.....took a break, watched the final episode of Lost (which i think could have been better) and came back to check on it and it literally just says

    Too many errors found - please contact technical support error / status code: 0225

    is there anything else i can possibly do?

    Well i think that confirms that the hard drive has ended its days.
