Let me just get this out of the way, I've already contacted Blizzard and Dell (my manufacturer) for help. Blizzard tech helped me 'unofficially' narrow down the problem, while Dell connected me to a girl in Korea who didn't even know what an MMO, BSOD, or the most rudamentory of tech lingo (needless to say I'm not calling them again). ok, I'll start from the beginning. On Sunday I bought WoW, the installation went fine but every time it started downloading the patches it would give me BSOD. So I tried getting the patch in Safe mode, and it worked; however, I am now unable to log in at all. I maybe have 5 seconds at the most after log on before I get BSOD. I think I might know what the problem is but I need to get into safe mode to do it (though I'm still open to other suggestions). Since I only have 5 seconds before BSOD I don't have time to get to Safe mode through MSconfig and for some reason whenever I press F12 at the start screen it doesn't give me the regular boot menu, instead it gives me the boot device menu. Now for the past three years or so I've always been able to enter safe mode through F12 but for some reason it has changed. Suggestions?
