My windows vista computer wont boot up, I keep getting the blue screen of death. None of the safe modes work. I've tried reformating the hard drive and re-installing windows but it still dosen't work. I've made no recent changes to my computer, it was working perfectly before this. I actually got a blue screen after I had already logged in an was sitting at my desktop screen. I tried windows startup repair and was given this message: Startup rapair couldn't automatically repair your computer. Error details:

Disc as in the windows vista disk? Because I've tried 2 with similar results.

The computer boots to just before the windows logo then blue screens.

On mine there is only f2 bios settings. Besides I already reformatted it and reinstalled windows which is pretty much the same thing isn't it?

Is it giving you the same BSOD or is it different each time?

What was the original reason to reinstall Windows?
One thing is unclear for me here.
Does Windows installation go fine all the way and you're getting BSOD on fully installed Windows, or...?
