Vista gets stuck at the welcome screen, restarted into safe mode and got the BSOD.

Heres the error: Stop: 0x000000F4 (0x000000003,0x86F44D90, 0x8FDB8CD4, 0x00000000)

win32k sys-address 8FDB8CD4 base at 8FC00000, date stamp 46d4163

It hasn't been used in abouta week, i dunno wuts up. I can't reinstall my OS cause I had it pre installed and didn't get any discs.

Now I can't even get to the login screen it just fails to load.


I've done pretty much everything. I'm on a new laptop.

Ouch.... this is why you try and wait until the first service pack.

Try and see if you've got a partition where you can see if you use a "destructive restore"

If you can, you should be able to somehow see if whatever company you bought it from has a set of install discs you could buy from them.

You're just gonna have to get a copy of vista CDs/DVDs from somewhere... but everything you will have had will be gone.

Thge error code reports "0x000000F4: CRITICAL_OBJECT_TERMINATION"
"One of the many processes or threads crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated. As a result, the system can no longer function. Specific causes are many, and often best resolved by a careful history of the problem and the circumstances of the error message."


Try a system restore point to when you know the OS was running OK.

Thats the problem, its a new laptop, i got it not even 2 weeks ago, and barely have had time to use it, or create a restore point. I don't care if my data is lost I didn't have much on there.

Is it possible I can take it back and have someone fix it?

You will need your Vista OS dvd to run repair http://vistasupport.mvps.org/windows_vista...air_options.htm
Vista automatically save system restore points I would try that first.
