Ok. i have recently took a update security update from Microsoft for XP Pro, and also my Antivirus program, Avast professional, downloaded an update as well. after that happen i was prompted to restart my pc in which i did and now it get the blue screen of death. My pc will not load no matter what i do, i have flashed the bios, i have removed all memory and added them back 1 by 1, i attempted to run the XP repair recovery console but i am unable to access it because once it begins loading the files it flashes the blue screen and reboots. i've attempted to log into safe mode trying every option available from last known config, to dos prompt, still blue screen and computer reboots. i know the hard drive isn't dead because it tries to load XP Pro and i can see the login screen from XP. I also created the boot floppy from XP using boot.ini...etc..etc.. i've created the 6 recovery cd and i still get the blue scree... i am totally out of things to try.. any help would be appreciated.
