Getting a blue screen of death outa nowhere. My computer was running slow, I hadn't downloaded anything for a few days or installed. I decided to reboot. Even streaming was laggy. On reboot, it stayed at the loading screen for about 10 minutes. I reboot and try again, normal boot. It black screens, not sleep. Try again with last known config. It black screen sleeps the monitor. Again, last known. Runs a disk check I believe, freezes at 39% for about 40 minutes, no files being read, rebooted again. Got past it this time to around 44% where I last seen it, both of these on the 2/3 check. Got the BSoD. The STOP says:

*** STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x86C37020, 0x86C3716C, 0x82072AB0)

Normal type of reboots/config will show the BSoD without rebooting. Trying to boot in safe mode automatically reboots before seeing the msg. I tried replugging and blowing out the circuits, tried removing the battery just in case for around 20 minutes, I think that's all. I think I tried another boot option which also didn't work. I also don't have any format CDs if that is the only solution, if there is one. Ill just buy them if I have to. I have a 2006 Gateway. The rest of the specs that I can remember are in my thingy.

I've looked around at some of the topics posted and the only thing I found that can possibly help me is the sticky at the top, but atm I don't have any CDs at hand to burn to. Maybe tomorrow. So I hope to get some feedback and maybe get this resolved. Perhaps there should be a sticky topic with each type of error and a way that it has been solved before, as to cut back on unecessary topics like this one.
