    Hi everyone im new to this site but i thought you could help me out?


    My computer keeps going thru a loop of blue screening and then restarting really fast. i managed to get the errors down on a piece of paper and would like to know what it all means. i can even get past the Xp load screen.

    Stop:0x00000024(0x001902fe, 0xf7975378, 0xf7975074, 0x86e49805)

    the only thing i put into my pc earlier in the week was a new video card and its driver.
    eVGA geforce 8400gs 512MB if that helps

    stop code 24 - points to NTFS issue on the drive

    (Although having just changed the video card may be the issue )

    see if you can boot into safe mode
    tap f8 as it boots

    do you have the recovery CDs for the machine
    Do you have any important data on the machine

    if data - this may work
    UBUNTU
    It may be possible to boot from another Operating System
    This will at least test the Hardware and also see if you can see the Harddrive and possibly get data off.

    If you have another PC with a cdwriter and spare CD
    goto http://www.ubuntu.com/ and download the ISO

    full details are here http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/wind...backup-files-from-your-dead-windows-computer/

    click on the image "download ubuntu"
    Select a location
    then begin download
    Save the file onto your PC – remember where you saved it – so you can find it again to create the image bootable CD.

    You do NOT copy the ISO file onto a CD - you have to use the ISO to create a bootable CD
    The CD creator software you have on the PC may have an option to create an image from an ISO
    If not - use this free program http://www.imgburn.com/

    When the UBUNTU CD boots - you will see the following options
    1) Try ubunto without any change to your computer
    2) Install ubuntu
    3) Check CD for defects
    4) Test memory
    5) Boot from first hard disk.

    Use OPTION 1 "Try ubunto without any change to your computer" this will run from the CD and not install onto your harddrive - be careful, if you do install you will wipe the data and software OFF your hard drive..

    Now you should see a UBUNTU desktop
    This at least proves the main parts of the PC are working

    You may see your Harddrive on the desktop - if not have in look in the places on the tool bar at the top of the screen.

    If you can see your harddrive – see if you can find the your datafiles –
    XP look in “documents and settings” under the user name you had on the PC
    Vista look in “user” under the user name you had on the PC

    Now if you have a USB flash drive or external harddrive – you should be able to copy your data from the harddrive onto the USB device

    I cant boot into safe mode or anything and i dont have the recovery disks and i dont have really important stuff on it.

    do you think i could just reformat the hard drive and install everything again?

    Possibly depends on if there is a hardware issue
    If you have another PC with CD writer and spare CD-R
    you could try UBUNTU - it will at least prove the machine works and then see if you can see the harddrive

    But without the recovery CDS you need a Legal XP disk
    Whats the Make and model of PC ?
    it may have a recovery partition

    Can you take the new video card out and use the old one ?
    Just incase its causing an issue booting
