Hello all.
Usually, my computer can't get past the boot screen; occasionally I'm able to get to the desktop outside of safe mode, but before it fully loads it has an unusual freeze- the task bar stays the normal color instead of greying, cntrl+alt+del doesn't do anything and task manager doesn't come up, and I can move the mouse(nothing responds to clicking though)
 
The few times the bsod shows up, the stop code is 0x00000051
 
Now just before this happened, malware bytes broke down every time I tried to perform a scan, so I thought it was a virus and had it run chameleon before full scanning with malware bytes and kaspersky- nothing got caught aside from the usual open candy garbage.
 
I've performed startup repair many times, each time there's apparently nothing wrong, last known good configuration brings up the bsod, and my system restore points have disappeared.
 
I have no idea how to proceed from here.

You might want to consider reinstalling the Operating System. (Backup your stuff first of course).

I don't have a disc, the os came with the computer.

Is that the only option?

I would suggest performing a Repair Installation.  This will not effect your data.

 

Window Vista Forums has instructions for performing a Repair Installation, this includes a download for a ISO image which you can create a Vista DVD.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
