Will your computer boot in Safe Mode and get past this error?

What problems were you experiencing before this happened?

Did you have any kind of malware or virus infection before this problem started?

I know you posted in the Vista forum but just for clarification, what version do you have?

will not boot in safe mode

everything was running smoothly. copied files onto a flash drive and shut now. now it wont boot.

no malware or virus that im aware of, i stay on top of that.

running vista ulimate 32-bit.

i booted a linux live cd, mounted my hdd and found the driver, but it had a different icon then the other .sys files.

i changed it to cqawjmy.sys.old and am running the recovery disc again. we'll see what happens.

back up and running smooth. recovery disc noticed the sys.old file and replaced it. linux saves the day once again. everyone should get a copy of a linux live cd, they can be very helpful.
