Hey everyone.. Oh gosh..I am in need of desperate help here! Just about an hour ago, my main computer crashed!! It spontaneously restarted, with no BSOD or anything. When it restarted, I booted into Windows, but after the windows loading screen (with the windows logo and a moving bar at the bottom) the screen goes blank (black) and stays blank, then quickly flashes a BSOD for a fraction of a second before restarting again. Then when it restarts, it goes to a screen where it gives me a few options. It tells me that Windows could not start normally and gives me a few options: Code: Safe Mode Safe Mode With networking Safe mode with (something else..) Last known good configuration Start windows normally I have tried safe mode, last known good configuration, and start windows normally, all to no avail!! I can get into safe mode, but that doesn't do much. Last known good configuration doesn't work, it just restarts again as it is about to load, going to this screen again and presenting me with these options. Same with "start windows normally". I was able to save a few of my files on safe mode, then decided to reinstall windows. I keep a few partitions dedicated to be backups of my important files, so I was not worried if I had to reformat my C: drive. I also tried system restore in safe mode, but it still does not work. My Optical drive is set as first boot device in the BIOS. I booted up on the Windows disc, then it starts up by saying Good, the Windows installation is starting...or is it... Then that message disappears, and I expect setup to appear, but it doesn't!! It just stays at the blank screen and the cd drive stops spinning. During this time on the blank screen, the hard drive LED is constantly lit. I have tried both of my CD drives set on boot with the windows cd, but still nothing, it stays on that blank screen after that initial setup message. I have also tried this with two different windows CDs too, and both hang right after that message. Also, I have been getting BSODs at random lately, sometimes even once a day for the past week(s). Whenever I get BSODs, I always feel safe to place the blame on my unbranded generic RAM, which I was planning to replace later this week with some Corsair XMS2. This strange situation just happened today though. I am running out of ideas... I cannot get into windows to analyze some minidumps or run a hijackthis scan, which is the solution for many problems here. I cannot do a repair install of Windows, since it will not boot on the disc past the initial setup message. Pretty much I cannot do anything!! Hardware is the only thing I control now, my whole hard drive is pretty much inaccessible to me!! Please tell me anything that you think will help, I am in a desperate situation at the moment. Note that I do not mind reinstalling Windows or reformatting my whole hard drive, I always keeps backups in many forms, so I have a few DVDs of my important files. The specs of that PC is my System #1 in my profile (and in my signature), and currently I am on System #2 in my profile. I need to fix this problem ASAP. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
