I've kind of remembered What I did a few months ago when I had the BSOD of the same kind...

I think I was setting something up and then the Recovery Console worked...
Ugh, Everything is such a blur... :)


I can barely focus on anything because of this!!
My online friends Are also probably wondering where the h-e-double hockey sticks im at...

Hi there Aichi,
My final suggestion for you will be,
unplug your HDD from your system and uses it as an external harddisk and backup every file inside the harddisk using another PC/system.
In that way, after you backup your files, you can format your hdd with new window installation.

Thanks

I think that you will need a new hard drive.
You MAY be able to pull off the data from the old drive.
Some times hard drives fail, sorry.

I believe the problem to be a failed hard drive.

O.K.,
The hard drive has failed. You will not be able to reformat it, you will not be able to use the recovery console to fix it, you can not fix a failed hard drive.
You need to buy a new hard drive, and install Windows on it from your recovery disc.
