I have a Dell XPS 200 running Windows ME. All updates applied etc.
While the machine sits idle, I come back on occasion, seeing blue screen of death, KERNEL_STACK_INPAGE_ERR, the codes are:
0X00000077(0X00000001,0X00000000,0XADD9CC34). I've looked at Microsoft website & can't find anything.
Does anyone have a suggestion. BTW recently had problems with computer seeing if network cable plugged in, resolved itself & also cannot completely defrag disk, at 48% fragmentation.
Press F12 at powerup and load the Dell diagnostics - run an extended hard drive test.
Ran that test, received:
Error Code 0F00:0244
Msg: Block 3739401: Uncorrectable data error or media is write protected.
What does that mean, can I fix it somehow???
The hard drive has developed bad sectors and must be replaced with a new one.
Is there any way I can get the data off the bad one to a new one??? I have Norton Ghost
You may be able to read some or all of your data files from the drive, yes. You will almost certainly not be able to clone the existing drive - if the current configuration won't boot, neither will a clone restored from that image.
To attempt recovery, replace the drive, and puchase a spare SATA data cable for the existing drive. Remove the faulty drive, load and configure Windows, and then attach the original drive as a secondary to recover your data.
That's what I did, using my orginal primary drive as a secondary, and copied good stuff to the new drive. Also was out on the Seagate site, since the drive was only purchased 4 months ago, I did found a repair program using DOS to fix the bad sectors, there were 22 of them. Anyways appeared to work, I was able to defrag my original drive with no problems etc.
