STOP: 0x24 error

Okay, so I have tried pretty much used every method I could find on this error to fix it but no luck.. I'm getting the BSOD Stop 0x24 chkdsk /r error. My biggest issues are as follows. I can't run Safe Mode (of any sort), It will not read my Recovery Disc, and I am unable to do the HDD on-board Recovery. I can't select any of the F8 options, I mean none of them without it going back to the STOP 0x24 error. So far I have tried holding "0" while starting up the computer, tried using my recovery disc(which I have successfully used about 2 times prior to the incident), I can't do Last known good configuration, nothing I try will get past the startup windows logo screen before it goes back to the Error 0x24 screen.. So that means no command prompting, no recovery, to safe mode, so anything.. The more I type this the more my Toshiba laptop it sounding like a 800 dollar paper weight. Anyone that believes they can help me please try. I have also tried removing my battery for 30+sconds and putting it back in, in hopes that it might help something but nothing has helped/worked yet. My brother has a copy of Ubuntu but i'm afraid that since the laptop won't even run my recovery disc that the Ubuntu option surely isn't going to work.. This computer is just a personal laptop nothing important that I'm trying to save on it f I can find a way to recovery it completely I'm okay with that.. I really want to try all my options before sending it off to Toshiba and waiting 2 months to get it back -.-


btw I had the laptop running FFXI and chrome in the background, and left it on while I went to a family gathering and when I came back I seen it was shut down, I turned it back on just to notice this error, and then I noticed my power cable had been disconnected from the surge protector and so I know why it got shutdown. So my game drain all the power and caused it to abruptly shutdown and I believe that's what is causing this error.

also I was able to run the debugger mode, It would go through NTFS.sys but it looped to error screen as it was trying to load the disk.sys file. and something else I noticed was when I didn't try to run my recovery disc I would get 3 other errors in "()" but when I tried to run the recovery disc I would get 3 different errors in the "()". Sorry for the wall of text just trying to cover all my bases so we don't spend 2hrs playing 21 questions..

Laptop = Toshiba Satellite L775D-S7335, running Windows 7 x64 if you do need more info that I didn't add just ask me I will reply quickly

  1. Sounds like it may well be your hard disk is almost dead.
    It could/would account for all of what you are seeing.

    Can you run your HD manufactures test tool to check it? or even in BIOS. .whats its SMART status?

    HTH

    I can get into the BIOS but as far as doing a test tool or anything of that nature I can't do anything. About to try running Ubuntu hopefully my laptop doesn't treat it like it did my recovery disc.

    Most of the test tools can be run from a bootable Cd/DVD.. so you don't need to be in windows to get them to work.
    Just boot from the DVD and will autorun.. detect the hard drive and start the tests.
    These days.. sure you can get them to run from bootable USB as well if your Laptop does not have a DVD...

    Just go to your Hard drive manufacturers web site and check support section and take it from there.

    Okay this may sound weird but, My brother put in Ubuntu an it wouldn't load all the way but after doing a memtest that came with the Ubuntu boot usb the laptop restarted with the usb still in it and it seems now its running the "0" hidden partition without pressing and holding "0" at startup o.O little weird but if this will fix my issue and completely wipe the HDD and let me reinstall Win7 i'm okay with that.. Will update with further info when/if the recovery completes. Thanks

    Alright It worked!! currently typing this message from my fixed laptop!! it seems weird that a Ubuntu bootable USB stick would allow for the hidden partition recovery to work but it did. If anyone else runs into this issue try this!!
