I started getting the BSOD and cant get back into my computer to try to fix it. The error code is 0x00000050 (0xC9464269,0x00000000,0x8E2208C,0x00000000). I was able to start in recovery mode and did a chkdsk /r. That took about an hour and a half. After that finished my computer started normally. I shut down and restarted and got the BSOD again. I tried to start in safe mode but the same thing happens. I was able to get to recovery mode again and ran chkdsk /r again. Started the computer and still get the BSOD. I removed the RAM one stick at a time, didnt help. I took the video card out, cleaned the fan, reinstalled, nothing. I haven't installed any new hardware lately, run AVG and just did a check with hijackthis the other day. I use spywareblaster, spybot search and destroy, malwareblaster and a few other programs to keep my computer clean of any virus and such. Any ideas? Thanks.

Computer is a 2 year old Deal Inspiron 530 E6550 (2.33GHZ)

Without being able to restart your computer it is virtually impossible to correctly diagnose what may be causing your problems. You might consider doing a "Repair Installation".

Does this look like an OldGrumpyBastard or what?

Even though chkdsk /r does complete...I think I'd run the correct respective hard drive manufacturer's diagnostic...before I attempted a repair install.

Without being able to start my computer I decided to just get another hard drive and hope that was the problem.
