Attached File  photo%201.JPG   457.86KB   5 downloadsHi Tech Experts,
 
I need your help to save my laptop and huge data, unfortunately which I did not back-up.
 
It's Dell XPX (Windows Vista- 4GB RAM - 500GB HDD) is facing Blue Screen of Death. 
 
Initially I could start it in safe mode for 3 times, when I attempted to restore to previous stable point, but it did not help at all and each time was facing BSoD. When in safe mode, none of anti-virus programs were working (McAfee and Avast) and Windows Security system was showing error, it made me think that BSOD is due to virus.
Even I attempted Repair mode but no help.
 
And now it is not even starting in Safe Mode. :( And when attempted to start in Safe Mode it hangs with the screen attached and then after more than 2 hours shows Blue Screen again. 
 
As I am not able to start the machine, not sure how to proceed and recover. Please help me. Thanks in advance.

I flipped your error message so that it can be read :).

 

Looks like your ATI video driver is probably corrupt, IMO.  Not sure why that would prevent the system from booting.

 

I'm not a Vista user/owenr...but I would try running the chkdsk /r command, if possible, from the Vista CD/DVD and see if that helps.

 

If so...I would then uninstall the current video drivers and reinstall same from the Drivers CD for your system.
