** Okay, So I'm not to sure about the Product Number. **

So here is my Dilemma: I am currently fixing a friends computer which is constantly popping up with the Blue Screen of Death. The thing is I thought Maybe entering in Safe Mode would give me enough space to check out the system and see if it's a Windows Vista Update problem that is causing the system to crash. But, every time I run Safe Mode in Either one of it's 3 settings It loads up the Drivers Fine and then Boom the System Reboots and it keeps Rebooting.

I have tried safe mode, System Repair, and tried System Restore but it will just continue Rebooting. I did manage to see a glimpse of the Blue Screen and it gave me a hint that the problem is rooted with a Hardware problem. But the thing is I have no Idea were to start.

So anyone have any Ideas to pitch and maybe give me a few area's to start at?

It could be a badly fragmented HD. See if you can find a defragmenter that will run in DOS. If you can get the system to stabilize try Defraggler.
I had a similar problem and that is where the problem lay. The built in defragmentation program is garbage.

See the thing is...I have tried running Safe Mode with Command Prompt and the the computer will still load the drivers and bam Blue Screen and Reboot again.

Does this Defraggler work on the start up of the system without the OS? or do you have to have the OS running for it to work?

Because I highly doubt I will be able to stabilize it. I plan on Checking the Ram Cards and then Maybe even doing a Vista Repair to see if that stabilizes it. But I will give your Idea a shot. Thanks.

Try reseating RAM modules, graphics card, hard disk cables at both ends, and the other cables as well such as fan connectors.
