Hey, I have an HP Pavillion p7-1436s Desktop PC my mom uses. It was recently having issues with the printer and she decided to try to conduct a system restore. It seems that something went wrong mid-way because it will no longer boot properly. It's a 50/50 chance that sometimes it will boot into a black screen, forcing a manual reboot, or that it will boot to a BSOD with the error code 0xc0000001. I have tried booting into safe mode as well as booting from a usb drive loaded with utility tools and other operating systems but it boots into a black screen. I can't even really get into the BIOS settings. It is still under a 2 year coverage plan with Staples but they only cover hardware issues and I don't want to pay $80 for their diagnostics if I can fix it myself. It initally seemed like a software issue but now I'm thinking I might need to swap hard drives. Can anyone help me figure this out? Thanks.
EDIT: Oh Also, I have googled the BSOD error code and it kept giving me solutions using shift+F8 to get into recovery mode but it never works.
