I am working on an older IDE computer that has had a SATA motherboard installed. The computer won’t boot. When I first started working on the computer it would boot to the BIOS screen and when the W10 Icon appeared and the dotted circle started to move it would lock up, go to a black screen with an arrow cursor showing. The cursor would move when the mouse was used.
I finally got the computer to boot and get past the lock up but not it will boot to the W10 Icon and the circular dotted activity symbol works for a while and then I get a light blue screen with the following:
Your PC ran into a problem and needs to restart. We're just checking some error info, and then we'll restart your PC.If you would like to know more you can search online later for this error CHRITICAL_PROCESS_DIED Then the computer restarts and goes through the same process again, then restarts. When the computer restart the third time I get a screen with the following: Recovery See advanced repair options Restart PC Choose an option.[[no matter what option I choose I get a message that the computer has run into a problem and the option cannot be completed] When I choose Command Prompt and run CHKDSK it runs but doesn't check many files. When I run CHKDSK /f I get a message that says the disk cannot run because this volume is write protected. Any suggestions. Thanks.
