Ok, a computer is restarting itself after Windows boot screen (blue loading bar) does it's thing for a few seconds, and it shows a blue error message (full screen) for a split second right before it shuts off and trys again. I can't get in to any type of safe mode including command. I can load a live CD of Ubuntu on the computer, and view all of the hard drive's contents. It started doing this afte leaving it to download a relatively big file. (A litle bigger than 1gig.) The hard drive was almost completely full at the time, and still is, except for 1.5 gig that I took off hoping it would boot. (Not healthy, I know) I have done a ramtest. Any suggestions?

I take it you cannot see the BSOD error message?
Try this and see if you can get all the information from the BSOD.
  • Start your system and at the Second post screen tap on F8 to get to the Boot Menu
  • Use the Arrow Keys to Scroll down to the line that says "Auto Start On Error" and highlight it.
  • Click Enter to disable it
  • The system should reboot and if not then do so.
  • When the BSOD shows it will stop so that you can reply with the STOP ERROR and any parameters.
