Blue Screen of Death, after Windows Logo. Wants to check Fat32

\015 My aspire 3000 comes up with blue screen of death right after Windows logo. It says it's checking consistency of drive C, and something about Fat32 files. It then goes through many steps of recovery, but then at the end, it just sits there and takes no other steps. I have to shutdown the "unsafe" way, cannot get to "shutdown".If I press any key within 10 seconds, it will continue on to my screen, and will let me go to internet for a few brief minutes, but will then repeatedly pop up with Dr. Watson Debugging error, and some other file error, shuts down internet, etc. I have tried several ideas, but it will not even let me get to "my computer" to check for disk errors.Now this morning, I tried to put in recovery disc, followed instructions, but it starts up as normal and goes right to the blue screen.Is my computer dead?\015

Answers :

Hi,
\015\012
\015\012Put the recovery disc in, restart the laptop, when you see the Acer splash screen press and hold down ALT whilst tapping F12.
\015\012
\015\012It should show boot order, select DVD drive and press enter, it should start the recovery process.
\015\012
\015\012If not, restart and enter the bios, find the boot order menu and change the boot order so the CD/DVD drive is first in the list, now save changes and exit.
\015\012
\015\012Now it should boot straight from disc and start the recovery process.
\015\012
\015\012Are you running XP or Vista?
\015\012
\015\012Thanks
If the machine is starting up and goes right into a Blue screen, I would go into the bios and check for a setting that says something like Sata native mode (or something along those lines, as they vary by maker) changing this setting may resolve your issues. \015\012Depending on your system bios it may be in the advance section. Just look aroung in the bios and see if you find such an option. Whatever it's at now, change it to the other option (there will only be two) and save the settings. Do not change anything else as this could cause you further issues. \015\012
\015\012It may not be called sata native mode, but it will definately say something about sata. \015\012Good luck :)
