Hello there friendly people of bleepingcomputer. I hope you guys can help me out with a major problem.
First of all I want to apologize for any grammar/spelling errors, English is not my first language.
Second, i do not have much knowledge of fixing computers, please don't get too technical in your answers if possible ;)

* The situation:

For the last three weeks my pc has been crashing suddenly, most of the time within 30 minutes after start up. Sometimes i got a blue screen, saying "driver irql not less or equal" and at the bottom it said something like Stop: 0x000000d1.
I researched a bit myself and found out it might had to do with logitech software. So, i uninstalled all of it.

I managed to get my pc going again every time by going to Safe mode -> System Restore.
After this process my pc would run perfectly, untill I did a reboot. after the reboot the computer crashes again.

This has been going on for weeks untill today;
My pc crashed again and on the blue screen it said Stop: 0x00008 or something. It was gone in 3 seconds.
When i start my computer now it goes to Startup Repair which goes on forever. It's been running for over seven hours straight now.

Please help me, what can I do? I can't reach safe mode anymore. Is there anything i can do?
Thank you so much for any help


Amsterdam, Holland

ps i attached a log file of my last blue screens, except the very last one

I've not seen Startup Repair options on XP systems.


System manufacturer and model?
