    Attempting to troubleshoot a blue screen on a Dell Desktop L230P-00 running Windows XP Professional
    I have attached the referenced blue screen message
    I have also attached a screen shot where the computer stops/stalls when I attempt to start the computer in Safe Mode (bottom of screenshot will show ...DRIVERS\fltsrv.sys)
    Once it finishes stalling then it goes to the referenced blue screen
    I have attempted to run a Hard Drive Diagnostics and have included the results of that screenshot (my guess is that Drive 0, which failed, is my A drive, please advise if this is correct as it seems to indicate that Drive 1 (WDC - which I also assume is the western digital hard drive) has passed the diagnostic
    I have also included a screenshot of the of the Operating System disc - which is NOT the original disc that came with the desktop - though did not achieve any results when attempting to run the Windows Repair tool
    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated!

    I’ve tried booting from the CD with the disc and it attempted to do a repair but failed (I’m assuming that is what you are advising?)
    Also not sure which bit version the system disc is for

    in your bios set cd drive as 1st (which i guess you done then ide as 2nd the problem with dell and xp wont load on sata drive 32 bit have to change to ide or compatible ,also if its a dell laptop then i would guess its old win 7 which would be 64bit and you need 64 bit for it ,if an old tower then remove sata drive (unplug) boot from disc should then go straight to ide drive so long as is correct version then reconnect sata drives gl
