the os is vista home basic. i tried using the recovery disk several times but it couldn't repair the start up files for some reason. (by the way, what the hell is the purpose of the recovery disk? NO computer i have ever repaired has been fixed with a windows recovery disk. Ever. i digress..)
I have ran the seatools harddisk test(long test, short test, and acoustic and every test passed.)
I also used memtest86 and it passed.
when the computer crashes i get the BSOD with this error:
0x0000008e (0xc0000005, 0x8245c6B8, 0x867636B7C, 0x00000000)
i used hirens boot cd to clean off some malware infections and super antispyware detected some rootkits and removed them but the computer still won't load. I don't know if this is a hardware problem or just a crazy virus but i need help.
Thanks in advance...
