This site was given to me in recomendation of a friend. He sasy that you guys were able to help him out. You guys come highly recommended. I will browse the site to see if any similar problems are posted.

My problem is: my son is running windows xp.

1. 2 yrs ago i had a tech come in an update his computer with a legal copy of xp. i was never given a cd or anything.
2. running macafee
3. yesterday 10/12/08 blue screen of death (2 tiems ) after rebots
4. tired to reboot in safe mode and was able to get in thier but then the compuoter shut itself down again by itself
I held down all the f keys to see what actually happens and another screen cam up (bios) were it shows how much memory and comuter information stuff on it, but i didn't know where to go from their . lol

IM totally lost as to what to do next. I dont have any type of back up cd for his computer. i was told i can back up my laptop which has vista in it and try to boot his computer up with that. ??????

Try selecting "Last Known Good Configuration" from the Safe Mode menu.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
