In order to clear some space in my gate way laptop, I was removing useless files. I, obviously, choose the wrong "useless" program to delete, a Texas Instrument's program. Right after I deleted it my laptop received the Blue Screen Of Death. When I power it up, a screen comes up saying: " You've uninstalled software and/or important hardware, or your computer has shut off unexpectedly, if this is the first time receiving this message reboot to the last known good configuration." Three tabs are able to be highlighted, Safe mode, Reboot to the last known config., and start windows normally. Sadly, safe mode does not work, nor does the Reboot to the last known configuration. Soon after I choose any of the following, the blue screen of death pops up for a split second and the computer restarts to do the same thing. I tried reinstalling the opperating system, and that doesn't work either. The only thing I haven't tried is to re-image the computer, but I don't have the disk to do that.
Any information will be great.

Thank you.

Do you have an installation CD/DVD? Reinstalling the OS should work if the hardware (esp. the hard drive) is not damaged.

Can you describe how you went about the reinstallation and it didn't work?

Thanks for replying.

I found the restore disk and that seemed to work, I still don't know why a Texas Instrument program would cause that problem...

Thanks again.
