Boot Driver Error

mjpierce24
Hi guys, this is really weird. My tower is brand new, I've had it for only 4 months, and it works great...but lately, I'll have the computer running, and everything's working fine...then all of a sudden, this blue screen pops up that says "corrupt driver....explains a little..then "if this is the 2nd time you've seen this screen contact technical support". When i look at the "system tools", the boot driver says "critical" while evereything else says "normal". What does this mean? How do i fix it? Any ideas?

    if your running XP, try jumping into safe mode hit F8 before windows loading screen appears (with the bar), find and replace the corrupt driver (device manager would be a good place to look for the driver thats causing the issue). If that doesnt work, I would try booting the the XP cd, jump into the recovery console, and run chkdsk c: /R - which will go through look for errors and attempt to fix them...

    Vista, I would run the install CD and run the "repair" option, if it doesn't work the first time run it again... I had a corrupt .dll a while back, had to run the repair twice to fix it...
