I'm having some serious problems with my Acer Laptop.
2 days ago after a few hours of normal PC work (internet,word) I shut the PC down. The Shutting Down screen appeared and I went away for a few minutes.
When I came back, I saw the BSOD on the screen.
Id read: irql_not_less_or_equal
***STOP : 0x0000000A (0xFFFFFFE0, 0x00000002, 0x00000000, 0x82458960)

I tried several things (safe mode, last known good configuration etc) but nothing worked. I started the Vista Repair CD, but the repair failed. The Memory Diagnostics Tool said that everything was OK.
Then I installed Windows Vista Home Premium on another partition (on the same HDD). That actually worked.
So now if I start the PC first comes one single Beep tone and then I can choose between the two operating systems of which one works and the other doesn't.
I have a Phoenix Bios with system Version v.0.3508.
I really don't know what to do, because I can't find any help on the web and I am not good at this stuff.
I would be very grateful if so helped me!
If you need more information just ask me, I will be online for the whole day.
p.s: I'm going to the US in a few days and I absolutely need my laptop by then.
p.s: I want to run the ultimate boot cd from USB but I dont know how this works
