Randomly, the other day, I was sitting in my computer room, not using the computer when the computer just randomly rebooted. It gave me several options "Start Windows Normally", "Last Known Good Configuration", etc. but none of them load the OS. Not even Safe Mode!

Once you select an option, it takes you to the screen with the Windows symbol and the colored bar moving underneath. After about 2 seconds of this, I see the blue screen of death for a half second before it reboots. This happens with all the possible selections ("Safe Mode with/Networking/etc.", "Last known good configuration", etc).

So I decided to boot from the recovery disk. I get to the point where it says "Press any button to continue..." I press a button and the CD spins up but even after several minutes, I'm left with a blank screen.

Is there anything I can do?

Easiest thing would be to reinstall windows, but if you could get the RC to run you could try repairing the MBR.
