I have a serious problem with Win XP.
When I turn the computer on,right after the bootscreen, BSOD (Blue screen of death) blinks and my computer restarts.
I tried to start it up in safe mod,but i have the same problem.
Now I am running Ubuntu 6.10 from Live CD,so I can-t write anything to hard disk (as much as I know,but if I can,please tell me how).I need help quickly.

Thnx,Ian.

I know when I start my dual boot I have the options to run different diagnostic tests. Do you have that option on the live CD? The BSOD doesn't display any numbers? If all your hardware is running in Ubuntu, you might be better off reinstalling the OS.

I have only Memory test option.
I use Ubuntu only live when I need it.

BSOD just blinks,it displays some text but I cant see what it says because it restarts almost instantly.
I cant reinstall windows because setup says the disk is full or damaged and offers only formating.
I ran the recovery console and done CHKDSK and it said that disk has one or more errors (very helpful :thumbsup: ).
Then I ran CHKDSK /R but it stopped at 50%.
I dont want to format because I dont want to lose 75 gigs of info.
Any ideas?

Sounds like the hard drive might have went south. Go to the mfg's site for your hard drive and download their diagnostic program and see what it says

I'd suggest backing up that 75 gigs of info in case this re-occurs. :thumbsup:
