    I have a Toshiba m35 satellite unable to get windows xp sp3 to boot gets to the safe mode menu but all it does is keeps going in a loop. Disable restarted on failure it comes up with the following error stop 0x0000007b (0xf713c8528, 0xc0000034, 0x0000000, 0x00000000) removed the hard drive from laptop and I'm able to see all my files in the hard drive, also put it in another computer as external drive and run chkdsk it run clean with no errors; but if i try to run chkdsk wit f it says cannot run because the volume is in use by other proccess. chkdsk may run if this volume is dismounted first, ALL OPENED HANDLES TO THIS VOLUME WOULD THEN BE INVALID.

    The "other process" is probably Windows Explorer. Restart the computer to which the laptop's hard drive is slaved then try to run Checkdisk with the detect and fix buttons both ticked straight away - without having involved Explorer in looking through it.

    If you put it back into its own machine, could you then run Checkdisk from the Repair option on an XP CD?
