Browsing onto one of my regular forums when the blue screen of death popped up. It had the following message:
"A program has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer."
I'm sure you know what the rest says to the stop message.
The picture gives the details of the stop message.

Now, I've been having BIOS issues with this machine for a while. When it first started, it was a low voltage message, and so all these weird BIOS issues kept popping up until I replaced the battery. After I replaced the battery, everything was good for a couple of months. Now, I'm getting all the same weird BIOS issues, except for the low voltage message.
Is this the end? Is my BIOS so corrupted I might as well dump the whole thing? This is BAD timing, because I had originally planned to purchase a new computer this spring, but business went very far south and I no longer have the money I was going to use to buy a new computer. Occasionally, when I first start the machine up, it makes growly noises, like a Chevy with a dead battery.
