Hello all. I recently came home from a much needed vacation and found my home desktop recieves a BSOD whilst attempting startup. the Model is an Emachine T3612 desktop with Windows Vista Home Basic(yuck). All attempts at starting through Safe Mode and using Windows Startup Recovery have falied. to add to this monstrosity, there were no recovery disks included with this computer, just a recovery partition through which I cannot access. I backed up the contents of my hard drive a couple of weeks ago, but I cannot restore windows.
the Blue Screen I recieve says the following:
STOP: 0x000000F4 (0x00000003, 0x86E9AD90, 0x86E9AEDC, 0x8265C650)
It also says all the normal "A process or thread crucial to system operation has unexpectedly exited or been terminated" blah blah
I cannot use the PC in any way shape or form. I will download a recovery disc from Microsoft and will check back in a few hours. thanks in advance for any help offered.
