Okay well I'm going to start off by saying dont sweat losing your data because Linux is always there to pickup after broken glass :thumbsup:. If your OS will not fonction you will always be able to recover your DATA with a live cd of Knoppix. (google it up and always keep a knoppix LiveCD Handy)

Now for the BeSOD.
Remove the card and reboot tell me how that work's out for you. It could fix your problems. Then remove the card drivers then reinstall the card and it's Drivers. Tell me how that works.

Try running the Recovery Console from your XP Disk

Note: You may need to change the boot order in the BIOS so that the CD-ROM is the first device in the boot order to be able to boot from the Windows installation disk.

To run the Recovery Console from the Windows XP startup disks or the Windows XP CD-ROM, follow these steps:

1. Insert the Windows XP startup disk into the floppy disk drive, or insert the Windows XP CD-ROM into the CD-ROM drive, and then restart the computer.

Click to select any options that are required to start the computer from the CD-ROM drive if you are prompted.

2. When the "Welcome to Setup" screen appears, press R to start the Recovery Console.

3. If you have a dual-boot or multiple-boot computer, select the installation that you must access from the]Recovery Console.

4. When you are prompted, type the Administrator password. If the administrator password is blank, just press ENTER.

5. At the command prompt, type chkdsk /r , and then press ENTER.


6. To exit the Recovery Console and restart the computer, type exit at the command prompt, and then press ENTER.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
