STOP 0x00000024: NTFS_FILE_SYSTEM Usual causes: Disk corruption, insufficient physical memory, Device driver, Indexing, Resident antivirus, backup, defrag programs, Disk/Drive failing/failure



In your case I would guess HD failure or memory.

Test Hard Drive www.carrona.org/hddiag.html or this test http://www.tacktech.com/display.cfm?ttid=287

thanks for the tests you suggested the memory test work and showed nothing however the hard drive test didn't work I'm guessing because of the RAID 1 setup, however i used the built in diagnostic on the bottom of the f12 drop down list and the hard drive error test which test both drives came up clean so with both the hard drive and memory clean I'm worried as to what could have caused the problem. i mean with the drive formatted and no errors in memory or in the hard drive. I'm right now running any of the different diagnostics that revolve around my problem but so far they are all coming up clean. i just hope that they find a problem just so i can use my computer again. Battery checks out L# caches all checks out fans, clock, timer, controllers BIOS all check out.

looking over the error list again, when i started up the windows loading program when it asks where i wanted the OS to be on there were three partitions one was called OS and another was called recovery and i forget what the third one was called. is it possible that the problem resides in either one of the two as neither of them were formatted.

After you are done with the Hardware tests and you are satisifed with the results
(memory must be run for at least 6-8 passes)
look at the other causes for your BC Code.
For example make a system restore point and uninstall your AV and install Microsoft Security Essentials, for a test or turn off indexing etc.

um i can't. A few days ago i uninstalled windows because the problem had gotten to the point where i couldn't access anything and more and more BSODs kept popping up. this last problem occurred when i was trying to reinstall windows preventing me from finalizing the installation of windows. and as i stated earlier i had completed the memory test though i did it before the other tests and both the memory and hard drive test came up clean, no errors. oh and i had let the memory test run all day and night for at least 11 passes though i think it might have been 14.

I think that it can be.
Usually we tell those with BSOD to run the antivirus as a virus can definately cause BSOD.

also every time i managed to log on in the last few days before i wiped the hard drive Norton internet security continued to be deactivated. however then how can i continue to get a BSOD after i have reformatted the Hard drive? could it move to another partition say the recovery partition or the OEM (reserved) partition? and then continue to operate from that to prevent me from installing windows?

I will only answer the part of the question that I know. Yes a virus can move from one partition to another. Dont know what it can do from there, however.

thanks very much for your help in all this richc46 it is very much appreciated it is always nice to get something tangible, even if it is only a possible cause, rather than grasping at invisible straws.
