A few weeks ago my computer started acting funny. It started giving my a blue screen stop error message 0x00000001, first it was every hour then it kept coming sooner and sooner till it finally would give me the error as soon as windows finished loading my profile settings. After that I was able to boot and run the computer non-networked indefinitely, but every time I tired to run a anti-virus it wouldn't let me install, saying either the disk was corrupted or my computer was infected. Everytime I would boot safe with network and would try to connect to the internet or run my anti-virus, the computer would shut down. After this about three times, it would boot at all, just stay on my bios screen, for the first four times I was able to acess my bios settings only, but after that I lost that function. After four times restarting checking and reloading default bios settings, my computer would just stat, show my gigabyte bios key opinion, which wouldn't work, and then go to a black screen with a blinking courser, that I could not type any commands into. Now after three restarts the computer now just shuts its self down after about 40 seconds of running, without booting or sending anything to the screen. Only thing I was able to try was test my memory in another computer and it worked fine. I built the computer about 3/4 years ago, and the specs are below. Any idea what the problem could be, can the old girl, or at least the hard drive be saved? Thanks.
It has a gigabyte S-series GA-73PVM-S2H mother board, a Intel Pentium Dual-Core E6500 Wolfdale 2.93GHz Dual-Core Processor,2gb Crucial Ballistix 1GB 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM, powered by a 500w power supply. I'm running windows 7 64 bit, and generally just use it for light gaming and internet browsing.
