I have an HP desktop that is giving a BSOD error on startup.

Through "googling" and "foruming" I have researched that it is an Nvidia error.

 

WHen I start the Vista desktop windows says loading fils and hen it hangs for several minutes on a blank blue screen and then it goes to Nvstor.sys BSOD.

I went to HP website and was givin an update for Seagate drivers that was updated from an iso disk I ceated as per HP's instructions. But still to no avail, the computer continues to BSOD on startup.

I'm lost. Is there anyway to roll back the driver or update the driver from an ISO disk. Help!

If you have your Vista disk you can set from BIOS to boot from DVD-ROM.Put the Disk to enter from it.Look for Recovery section there and find Restore point.The documents will not be affected.Only installed software.Or use a Linux Distribution to extract your information.

Linux needs over 700mb of space. The disks I have only have 700mb of space. ARgh! Can I make a flash drive bootable with Linux?

I suggest burn the puppy as bootable iso to dvd/cd set the broken pc to boot from dvd then once it boots go to the drive and copy any documents you want to usb

 

any puppy will do and  is only about 150 meg in all and will boot from usb dvd or cd. and runs from ram

 

Download this
