ok, a mate has a pc which is bsod'ing, and continually restarting. I tried starting it in safe mode, and it stops and sticks at Mupsys. The Stop message is: 0x0000007E (0x0000005, 0Xf1C344D0; 0xF7C85FC8, 0XF7C85CC4) Seems to me that it is prob easier simply to do a reinstall, but chap needs to save a lot of files on his hdd. I can slave his hard drive to mine and save stuff that way (wish I had a caddy) but is there any way I can get his system to boot, and possibly save things that way? Any help, as usual, very much appreciated!
