I have a problem with my computer. Halfway through an attempt to install a bluetooth driver software (which is probably what is causing this problem) the computer crashed with a BSOD.
Now, whenever I try to boot up into Vista, I get a BSOD with a "REFERENCE_BY_POINTER" error.
Technical Info: STOP: 0x0000000018 (0x000006,0x8A036818, 0x000000002, 0xFFFFFFF)
Booting into Safe Mode also resulted in a crash, and Last Known Good Configuration did not work. Apparantely I had System Restore disabled too, so i was unable to use that.
Startup repair did not work, it said there were no problems, but clearly there is.
By the way I have a dual boot config. Windows XP is the other OS, which works fine (maybe i can use that to fix the Vista BSOD problem?)
If there are no other suggestions, is there a way to do a re-install of Vista? I understand I can do that by using the disc to "upgrade" and fix it? However I read that I had to do that within Vista, which I cannot boot into.
