    Sounds like you might need to reformat but before you do I have some questions unless I'm too late.

    Have you tried unplugging devices to your computer and rebooting?
    Have you made any attempt to get into safe mode to perform a system restore?
    When are you getting the BSOD?

    Sounds like you might have to reformat. The only chance you have at this point is attempt to get into safe mode. When the computer boots back up again. Start tapping F8. You may need to reboot a few times to get it. You should start pressing it right after you computer hardware logo comes up. That is BEFORE the windows logo. Keep tapping F8. You should get a DOS screen with options.

    That is just basically white words.

    There will be a few options. Firstly if you have the option try this first:

    "Last known config.."

    It will attempt to load up your operating systems with the working configuration. If that doesnt work or you do not have that option just select "safe mode". Not "safe mode with anything else" Just safe mode.

    Let me know how far you get.

    You could also remove said harddrive and slave it into another system. From that system you can a) run harddrive diagnostics to determine the condition of your harddrive and b) transfer your valuable information to either CD/DVD and or flash drive.

    Find the make of your harddive and go to the manufacture's website. They should supply you with a free utility to diagnose; run all the tests.

    Boot HBCD

    select Mini Windows XP

    at command prompt the black screen with a C:> prompt icon

    CHKDSK C: /F

    if you have multiple partitions

    CHKDSK D: /F

    CHKDSK E: /F and so on...

    Launch Explorer.

    Check properties of your drive [C:]

    If both Used Space and Free Space are zero (0) then the problem is with the partition. You have to do partition recovery. Yes there is a possibility of repair but its not for novices. I've done about 6 with 1 failure.

    for marebamo

    Try on others PC first. If you have Hiren's Boot CD you can follow the above. I have post on how to use the Recovery Console kindly search.
