So my problem is this, whenever i start my computer it will show me the BSOD. When the BSOD appears seems to vary from after the windows loading page or right after what i would assume to be the bios page. Unfortunately i can't get it to start up into safe mode again. I had it in safe mode once before but i tried to reinstall the video drivers. When i went into the device manager it told me that it couldn't find the drivers.
I have tried to swap out the memory stick and switch which slot it was in but that still didn't work. A couple of weeks ago i had another problem similar to this on and taking out the 2nd stick of RAM appeared to fix it. I also tried resetting the BIOS by removing the battery.
I have not added any new hardware to it although i did remove a stick of RAM about 3 weeks ago.
Below is what i deemed to be important from the latest BSOD although i have pictures of the ones in the past as well if anyone needs more information.
Driver_IRQL_NOT_LESS_THAN_Equal (Sometimes the Driver part is left off)
STOP: 0x000000d1 (0x00005F18, 0x00000002 , 0x00000000, 0,xF84F790E)
atapi.sys - Address F84F790E base at F84f0000
Windows XP sp 3
Intel Pentium 4 2.5 ghz processor
Currently 514 mbs of RAM
Geforce 6200 psi slot
40gig (15 or 20 gigs left) master
250 gig (70 or 80 gigs left) slave
I am really at a loss for what to do since i can't get windows to boot-up. If anyone can help me narrow down things to try or give me something to get me closer to a solution i would appreciate it.
P.S. This site is perfectly named
