Cannot start computer --> get blue screen ***STOP: 0X0000007B (0X8207AA10,0XC0000032,0X00000000,0X0000000) INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

I've tried all the F8 options without success. I cannot get started to check anything, I'm just stuck with nowhere to go. I've just relocated the Dell Dimension 4100 from work to home. It started up fine last night but when I moved it into it 's final location, I'm getting the BLUE SCREEN at the Windows start-up. The message says to check for viruses, remove any newly installed hard drive or hard drive controllers, check for hard drive corruption and that it is properly configured. How do I check if I can't boot? I've added or altered nothing except moving it to a different location and I don't have the original start-up disk since I aquired it from work as a "give-away".

Any suggestions?

Sounds like something's come loose. If you've never been into a tower before make sure you discharge any static or it'll fry the motherboard. Make sure everything's turned off and check cables etc and phericals in slots.

If all else fails the f key to press is F11 which will give you options to reset to factory settings.

This can also happen if your boot drive is SATA and the BIOS setup gets reset or corrupted. Either the boot order is incorrect, wrong hard drive is selected (if multiple hard drives), or SATA mode is set to RAID instead of IDE (and you aren't running RAID). Try repeatedly tapping F11 or DEL as soon as you power the system on to get into BIOS Setup.

These guys are both right. When you say moved, what do you mean? It could be SATA settting in BIOS, loose cable, or if you changed the configuration, it could be a jumper.
