BSOD, can't access safe mode, won't system restore

  1. I have a dell inspiron, Win 7 x64 laptop.

    I recently downloaded the program: 'iiusage 2.3' a tool to help analyse internet usage and quota. Immediately when it installed, the computer bluescreened. Whenever it loads, it bluescreens after the mainscreen and immediately goes to start-up restore. Can not enter safe mode.

    Start-up repair can not fix the problem and gives the following problem details
    problem event name: startupRepairOffline
    Problem signature 1 - 6.1.7600.16385
    Problem signature 2 - 6.1.7600.16385
    Problem signature 3 - unknown
    Problem signature 4 - 21200462
    Problem signature 5 - AutoFailover
    Problem signature 6 - 21
    Problem signature 7 - 0x109
    OS version - 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1
    Locale ID - 1033


    I have tried to system restore to a point a few weeks before this happened and this does not fix it and it loads and goes straight to startup repair.

    Windows Memory diagnostic does not find anything.


    do i have to restore to factory settings (not desired - as i will lose all programs + files) or is there a way to fix this?

    If you have another system or have a friend who has a system then slave your hard drive into that system and see if you can access the hard drive and clear that software out. You may need to do a Windows Repair. Do you have your Windows OS disk?

    I have tried windows repair and it does not fix it.
    System restore to a previous date does not work.

    I ran system diagnostics> Cannot boot the OS > SATA disk seek test
    error code 0F00: 133C msg disk - no suitable disk medium
    present

    if anyone else could help it would be much appreciated.

    Did you try loading the cd drive frist from the BIOS and doing a hard drive wipe and installing a new OS in the process, and also do you have a video card?
