Default need help ASAP!

Well... here goes nothing... i'm trying to type this fast and i'm on a laptop so if theres some bad spelling just skip it

My dad was on the PC at the time, he's not really the PC wiz lol

he got a blue screen all of a sudden that said "Dump of *somthing* meromery" and he let that run for 5 min... i usally just did the goob thing and just cut the power off... this seemed to work... but he let it keep running...

now when we turn on the PC after its loading half way we get this blue screen saying *i'm not going to type it all just some*

"***STOP: (0x000000 numbers blah etc) INACCESSIBLE_BOOT_DEVICE

If this is the fist time you've seen this Stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen apperars again follor these steps

check for viruses on your computer. Remove any newly installed hard drives on hard drive controllers. blah blah ... Run CHKDSK /F to check for hard drive corruption, then restart your computer."

Don't tell me i need to call a pro i wanna get this done now... i have forgotten how to run "the controls" to where you can run w/e... idk what its called...

but anyway any help would be great!

thanks in advanced

boo

Did you try booting in safe-mode by hitting f8 on startup?

If ur on 2000 check all cd's and floppys are removed - if u still get blue screen reset bios to default - if that dont work ur onto destructive restore option - only other option is to use a god cd or floppy and go inspect files - if u need files to build a god disk say and ill mail an iso or batch depending if u want floppy or cd
