Hi all, I had this error message on boot up:

<windows root>\system32\ntoskrnl.exe

:upset: I had to hit F10 to go to the recovery console, reinstall windows, and now all of my settings and some of my software are gone! :upset: I have to install the software for my graphics card, wireless card, and something else that I can remember right now. Can someone tell me what this is and what caused it? Norton picked up nothing during a scan. The only thing that took place on the computer before this is internet browsing and the kids playing a downloaded version of "Oregon Trail." can someone give me some insight? :4-dontkno Thanks.

Your computer could have crashed for a number of reasons: perhaps a virus that Norton missed, RAM issues, overheating, unstable voltage, or maybe those gremlins that worship the God of Linux and who have vowed to haunt every bit of Microsoft software that they can get their teeth into!

There are those amongst us that would suggest you bin Norton and use something like AVG or AVAST.

If it is a hardware issue, it may happen again, so I would suggest printing off this workout:-

Make sure you replace your main-board drivers, then graphics cards, etc.

You might be able to retrieve some of your programs, try this:-
