Description: Using my PC fine everyday. Last night, all of a sudden while browsing the net, harddrive loads for some reason (as if heavy system load), everything slows. a few seconds later, BSoD. Restart. Windows logo screen, BSoD when the progress nut reaches the right side of the progress bar. BSoD here is 0x000000A (irql less than or equal)
Safemode. Exactly the same thing. Crashes during Windows logo, when that nut reaches the right side.
Safemode command prompt. same.
EDIT: Safemode actually doesnt load, after the list of files scroll through the black screen, it just blue screens to a 0x0000007B.
Got my recover CD to recovery.
Recover Console loads. BUT, it is supposed to tell you to press 1 (to choose the windows installation) and prompt you for Admin pwd, then it will show C:\Windows. BUT that DID NOT happen. It just jumps straight to C:\. Did not ask me to press 1 to choose Windows. Perhaps implying it cannot find Windows?
In the console, DIR doesnt work: Failed during Enumeration.
commands like md says access denied.
tried chkdsk, chkdsk /p, chkdsk /r, chkdsk /f, chkdsk /p /r, chkdsk /p c:, chkdsk c: /p, etc. Different combinations; none worked: it immediately says without even loading or scanning:
The volume appears to have one or more unrecoverable problems.
I wonder if it is really true since it doesnt even start scanning; or if it is just because I cant seem to do anything with the drive to begin with... (even DIR didnt work).
What can I do now?
Is there any reason how this could happen?
Can a virus cause this type of situation?
(I happen to have System32's folder open when the crash happened, during the heavy system load. I had sort on "most recently modified" so new files should appear at the very end. When I was looking, there wasnt anything new; a virus usually put something there, right?
