Ok, i am having serious problem here.

Whenever i start windows in my copmuter, it loas normally then i see something blue appear and couple of zeros below and the computer restarts, it continous doing this forever.

The strange thing is that befor, the computer would display an error and STOP there, but now it is suddenly different.

The Harddriver is working, loaded gentoo and it told me everything was working all right (atleast i think it does).

Please help me, this is my work computer and over a year of work is gone now and i really need it.


P.S.
this is a lagtop

Try tapping your f8 key from start-up and selecting 'Last good configuration' ... failing that, try 'safe-mode' on the same menu and see if a system restore will work.

Any new hardware, software, driver updates added just prior to this issue starting?

humm, neither of them work.

I am not sure if i did install any driver update or anything. So lets put that off the shelf for now.

what i find most interesting is that befour, the error was a black screen with some text in it. It did not provide much information and it hang up there, but now, the screen is blue and provides a text that i cant see cause the second it displays, the computers reboots instantly.

So each time i try to turn it on, it displays option on how you want to log into the computer since the computer didn't turn off it self properly.

Please let me know if you need any more information.


P.S.
i could notice the word "Harddrive" and "driver" in the error befour it disapeared.

If you can't get into safe-mode then your options are limited - if you boot up your windows CD you could try a boot repair using recovery console:-

Or by-pass the recovery console and do a repair install of windows - this should leave your data in place but you will need to checkout your drivers and re-install windows updates:-

If you go to the manufacturer's website you will be able to download a diagnostic program to check your hardrive over - usually goes on a floppy but most have a CD version too. You could put your hardrive on as slave in another PC to check it out further and get your data off - if that is an important issue for you (assuming it works of course). Be sure to check the setting of jumpers on both drives. Check it for viruses and malware first thing - which might solve the problem - plus you need to safeguard your host drive when transferring data anyway.

If none of the above helps, pull out as much of the hardware as you can - PCI cards, all but one stick of RAM, etc, and see if that makes a difference (swap the RAM around one stick at a time). Run memtest to verify the condition of the RAM:-

If you have a spare PSU and video card that will suit, try changing them over.

Let us know how it goes.

maybe i didnt mention it, but this is a Lagtop, so moving the harddrive into another computer can be quite the trouble :p

i will try to repair the windows and hoping it will leave the data alone :)

thanks man :D
