          can you actually believe that a microsoft fix just "works". I've never had one of those disks actually recover shiet.

          newaiz, what causes the tables to die like that?

              HDD may have failed. Best bet is to do a full format, reinstall windows and see if it happens again.

              Then again you could just go buy another HDD. Over at a place called Fry's around here they've had 200GB WD HDDs for $60 on random sales days. I'm sure you can find something like that over there.

                The way to fix this is to enter recovery console like stated above, and then enter:
                chkdsk /p [enter]
                fixboot [enter]
                exit [enter]

                Why does this happen? It happened first on my 120 gb wd drive.. Then, when I swapped it for a 200 gb seagate, I still get that blue screen.. Any ideas?
