Hey Guys,

My apologies if you this has been addressed anywhere else but I have been battling with this problems for weeks now.

I have an old PC I was using as a backup and unexpectedly became my main PC. It is a PC I built years ago and was building up bit by bit. It was originally all IDE but then I upgraded to a SATA motherboard Asrock 2Core1333-2.66G. The case still had two IDE DVD-RW drives and two IDE 160GB HArd Drives.

As there was only one IDE slot on the motherboard I had both hard drives in but not the DVD's. I decided to burn a CD one day and thought it would be simple to switch the IDE cable over and that was where my troubles began.

I got the Blue Screen of Death and haven't been able to shake it. I have tried to re-install Windows but that also freezes and restarts. I am getting nowhere and it's driving me crazy.

When I try to load Windows normally the screen pixelates on the XP logo and freezes or I get the BSoD stating>>>>


PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA

dmboot.sys – Address F730CE9E base at F7305000, DateStamp 4802549d


When I try to re-install from the CD the computer restarts. Please, please, please say you can help. You will have my eternal gratitude. I have even tried putting in a new hard drive and re-installing on that, moving the DDR II chip to a different slot, resetting all bios settings to default nothing is helping.

I hope you can help.

Fingers crossed.
