Hi guys. I've been having some pretty major issues with my computer as of late. What's happening right now is that I cannot get into safe mode nor can I repair my system with the Windows CD. Lately I've been trying to repair my Windows, and following the message "Setup is inspecting your computer's hardware configuration" I get to this BSOD where it says this.. "A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer. The problem seems to be caused by the following file: partmgr.sys GE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA (don't know the exact letters prior to GE because a portion of the left side got chopped off)" Then it goes on a little bit about checking if hardware or software is properly installed.. And that I should disable or remove any newly installed hardware or software... and SP2 is the only thing that applies but how do I get rid of it if I can't even get into safe mode? Partmgr.sys - address F7AB94AB base at F7AB000, DateStamp 00000000
This whole problem occurred about a week ago when my computer just randomly stopped booting up normally. It would get past the first initial screens and prior to seeing the Windows XP logo, it would just be stuck at black. So finally after awhile I was able to repair the system, and then everything was fine again. Next thing you know I'm trying to install IE7 and SP2, and after a reboot from doing so I'm back at square 1, a blank black screen. Naturally I tried to repair the system again, but I'm now stuck where I alluded to earlier.
Also, I cannot get into safe mode whatsoever.. I can get into the BIOS though. It seems like I can't even format or repair my system guys, what can I do?
