|So I wrote a reply for about an hour and my pc overheated and lost all the text I was writing.|
this is the screen I get when I go to repair computer in the advanced options menu
I click other user and get this
I type my username and password and get this screen
I even made 2 new users, 1 admin and 1 non admin, to see if those would work. they did not
The only thing it ever said was "IRQL not less or equal to".
I ran system restore when this first happened and it did fix it for a while, but after a few days i started getting the BSoD again. When i try to do system restore now it only gives me 1 date to restore to, and when restored to that date it just gives me the BSoD because the date is after this started happening.
There are no errors in the device manager, and I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling all the drivers. When I disable and uninstall it just starts to reinstall them automatically tho.
Event viewer must be corrupt also because it is showing no errors, but says files are missing or something and I can't even use it.
I disabled almost everything in msconfig that isn't essential to the laptop when I first got it, so only 2 things startup and only 20 services are running. When u say untick do you mean i should start the services that aren't running to see if it caused the crash?
jefro: I tried a memory diagnostic when this first happened and the pc just crashes in the middle of it. I dunno anyone that has the cd, but i could buy one from gateway for $20, which i don't have... i'm a broke college student
Thanks everyone for all the help so far. hope I can get this figured out.
