|Here's the deal : |
My comp was working perfectly, untill one day I restart and it just restarts over and over. Finally, I found the error message of irql not less or equal
the stop message was 0x00000000a and a bunch of parameters...
I tried safe mode and all the other options, I've checked the microsoft website and did evrything I possibly could (even tho it does assume that you can turn the computer on and get windows running, at least for the most part)
So, I plugged in a different harddrive and installed windows XP on it, and the computer worked perfectly (which makes it so it can't be ram, video card, etc)... now the original plan was to add the original hard drive as a slave to copy my data off of it... So I add the hard drive in as slave and power up... the error message comes up again. Same thing happens no matter which computer I put the hard drive in.
I tried to use system recovery through the windowes install, but as soon as it says starting windows the BSOD shows up again.
Now, How can I fix this so I can at least get the data off the hard drive... last time all it took was a format and a reinstall, of windows and everything worked fine, but this time I've got alot of stuff on there that I really wouldn't like to lose... please a practical solution and not 'you should have backed up'
