How To- Fix “stop 0X00000024” Error In Microsoft Windows 2000?

Is your Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system-based computer unbootable? Are you unable to access your precious data from Microsoft Windows 2000 hard drive? This behavior reflects missing, damaged, or unusable system files, file system, or drive files of NTFS file system. In all such cases, your data becomes inaccessible and grave data loss situations occur. To get your business-critical data recovered in these circumstances, Windows Recovery is the only way to go.

As a practical instance, you may encounter any of the below error messages when you attempt to boot Microsoft Windows 2000 operating system-based computer:

“Stop 0x00000024”



After either of the two error messages, your computer refuses to boot and you can not log into the drive to access stored data. In order to gain access of stored data, find out the cause of this issue and carry out Windows Data Recovery by resolving it.

Grounds of the issue:

This behavior may occur due to missing, damaged, or unreadable ntfs.sys file. It is a driver file of NTFS file system, which allows your system to read data from and write data to the NTFS partitions. Operating system can not perform any read/write operations on NTFS partition after any problem with this file.

This problem may also occur due to corrupt NTFS file system, damaged Windows hard drive portions, or corrupted IDE or SCSI drives.


Try following measures to work around this problem:

Disable the anti-virus scanning applications, disk defragmenter utilities, and data backup tools, which continuously monitor your computer.

Run hardware diagnostics utilities that are supplied by the computer manufacturer, if possible.

Run the ChkDsk /r utility for detecting and fixing structural damage to the file system.

Increase the size of RAM (Random Access Memory) if you are using depletion of the non-paged pool memory.

If damaged file system and hard drive portions are causing this problem, above steps can not help you resolve it. In such cases, you need to format the hard drive and reinstall operating system. However, this method removes all the data from hard drive. In such cases, Windows Data Recovery becomes essential.

Recovery is best possible using Windows Data Recovery Software. These are powerful third-party tools, which methodically scan the affected drive and extract all lost data from it. They ensure quick, safe, and easy recovery in all cases of Windows data loss.
