Dont really know if this goes in the hardware or software, depends on what the error turns out to be. My computer has a BSOD now, and wont boot into windows, not even safe-mode. But first some explanation. (You can look at my setup to the left of course) My computer has had the current windows install for about 7-8 months and never had a problem with it. But about two weeks ago, i turned it on and when it tried to load vista a blue-screen popped up faster than i could make out anything of the error message. So it just endlessly rebooted, not even safe-mode worked. I popped in my vista cd so i could try and use the repair function. But nope, it couldnt even recognize there was a vista installation on the harddrive (well it found something but said it was "unknown). Now i was nervous. The usb harddrive i used to make backup on was dead, so i was saving up for a new one, so i had no backups (its so typical shit happens at that moment my backup drive dies). I waited a few hours and tried again and then it worked. Didnt make any sense, i could in no way find out what had caused the error. Fast forward to today, the computer had worked fine, but i had left it on for about 1½ hours while i was out (it was just sitting in windows idling, no programs were running), i went back and noticed that all my tray icons dissapeared the moment i moved my mouse over them. "odd" i thought, so i clicked on the start menu to start up my nod32 and then everything dissapeared with only the mouse and wallpaper. And the harddrive lamp was on but i couldnt hear it doing anything. I then pressed ctrl-alt-del and then the screen went black. And then the monitor turned off because there was no video signal. "uh-oh"... I pressed the reset button and when it tried to boot windows the same BSOD came up and still it was too fast for me to see what it was. I tried using the vista install cd repair function again, and now it couldnt find the vista installation at all (even though i could still try to boot into vista). I tried a few times and then the BSOD came on while booting the cd. never happened before. but i could luckily see what the error code was. But it didnt say anything about a driver name or filename. tl:dr version BSOD error 0x0000007E(oxC0000005, 0x895B9A98, 0x80599B68, 0x80599864), how do i fix it? i have so many files that i dont want to lose, i would die if they were to dissapear.
