Well first off I'll just explain how it happened, and I won't tell the story, I'll just go the the stupidity/action part of it.
And on a side note, sorry for all of the reading.
.....ok then my speaker fell off my tower, it hit all of the cords on the back, and finally when it landed.... I bluescreened. After The quick bluescreen, I made an o face :o. So what I did is hit the power button, then tried to start up my computer. The windows loading screen showed up for 2 seconds then I got another bluescreen. I followed the same process of turning it off and restarting. But what happened made me make another, bigger o face :O... I turned it on, and waited, and waited, and waited, and my screen stayed black.
Ok enough with my story, here's what I did.
I opened up my pc, tried swapping the hard drives, this time when I started up the computer detected my monitor. So I popped in my windows disk and went to the recovery console and did a chkdsk /p. It said there were one or more errors on the volume. then I did a chkdsk /r. A couple hours later, it was done.
-eye breaks so its easier to read, sorry for the length-
So I re swapped the hard drives, started up, and at the login screen, I bluescreened. Pissed at the world, I put my computer back in my room and left it there for about 6 hours. Angry that I didn't have a computer to browse the interwebs on, I set it up and tried again. In amazement, it worked. So once it started up, here's what i had open:
-Firefox with a youtube video on
-AVG Internet Security 3-Pack
-Spybot S&D Resident
-And some others in the taskbar like Realtek audio manager and nVidia control panel
Since I was in awe of it working, I wanted to watch a few videos but half way in, I BLUESCREENED. But I happened to notice the word MEMEORY in the 3 word error. some word_MEMORY_some word. So every time if I start up and I have a lot of things running, I bluescreen, but if I close everything but AVG and my browser, I'm fine.
I don't know if its my OS, my HDD, my, GPU, my RAM, or my PSU.
-OS may be bleeped (am I allowed to say that or did I skim over a rule?)
-I thought it might be my GPU because when I switched my D drive to the SATA I slot, it detected my monitor
-It might be my HDD, I don;t know.
-Might be my RAM because it said MEMORY in the error
-A friend said it might be my PSU
OS: Windows XP Home SP3
CPU: AMD Sempon LE-1100 (some 1.9 single core POS)
GPU: nVidia GeForce 7300 GT
PSU: honestly I don't know the wattage of my psu
Memory: 2 GB DDR2-533
Any more specs you need just ask
And by the way, Thanks in advance.
