|Hello, I am trying to help a friend out who said his computer won't start up. When powered on, Windows starts to load but stops and a blue screen of death appears. I opened the machine and made sure all the components were connected securely, HDD, RAM, etc. Also tried starting in safe mode and the same error message appears.|
The message says:
A PROBLEM HAS BEEN DETECTED AND WINDOWS HAS SHUT DOWN TO PREVENT DAMAGE TO YOUR COMPUTER.
Here is a pic of the screen with more details if needed: http://www.flickr.com/photos/608339...
Does this mean the hard drive crashed?
Any help where to start is appreciated.
