What do I do if my computer has "the blue screen of death"? I've tried consantly restarting the computer, but i can't get past "the blue screen of death". It's right after the first start-up screen where it shows the drivers that you have installed. I just don't know what to do. Someone please help.

Perform Windows Repair. I actually had a problem this morning that needed it. Just make sure you have the Windows CD and the RAID disk ready.

I don't know if that will help, but I've had several problems, and I fixed them by doing that.

The problem with that is I can't even get to the system recovery screen to even begin to fix it.

do you get a message regarding a memory address, registry, or a particular driver? There are many BSOD messages out there. Also, specifying your operative system may help as well

If all else fails, get a hard drive ready, and use linux live to save all your stuff onto that hard drive before reformatting.

How do I do that? the linux thing I mean. and by get a hard drive ready do you mean a new one?

My operating system is windows xp. the only message I get is the one at startup up that says something like GFORCE FX (my graphics driver) and then it lists my comkputers RAM and some other stuff I don't rember. But right after that it goes to "the blue screen of death".

P.S.: "the blue screen of death" is just a navy blue screen with nothing on it.

Go to the BIOS of your motherboard, set the boot priority of your CD/DVD ROM drive to be above your hard drive, and put the Windows CD in.

Gah, wish I could help you, man. This would be way eaiser to do through showing than explaing...

How do you get to BIOS before booting up.

It usually says right when you turn it on, what buttons to push.

And when I said a new Hard Drive, yup, I meant it. XD

I cant get to the BIOS screen, and don't have the money for a new drive.

I don't mean to double post, but I just found out I may not have "the Blue screen of death after all". In a few minutes I'll edit this post and put a few pictures I'm going to take with my camera at the two screens I can see.

Edit:
Here's where I first boot up:

It's hard to read what it says, I'll post that later
and then it goes directly to this screen:

That really isn't much help. =/

As for getting into the BIOS, the buttons are usually DELETE (DEL) or F2.
