Yeah i'm having problems too.
Bought my comp as new about a year ago with n problems.
It started slowing down and was advised i tcould be the ram etc so they
sent me more and it did nothing then it just started doing what the hell
it wanted ie not shutting down if it didnt want to, taking forever
starting up, programs shutting down etc..
So i though i would do a system restore which i did and it seemed to
solve the problems for a while.
Then things started playing up again and and it wouldnt load up at all
so with a lot of messing about i managed to get into safe mode from the
the boot screen and restored and agian for a few weeks it was ok..
Then a few weeks ago it just packed in all together and now it takes a
while to boot and then just goes to the blue screen saying STOP:
0X000000ED (0X851313B8, 0XC000000, 0X00000000, 0X00000000).
i have ordered recovery disks which have taken weeks to come and should
be here soon but i had a lot on the computer ll it does is restart when
i get to the blue screen and takes me back through it all..
It will not go anto any safe mode recovery manager or anything and the
error im getting now before going to the blue screen is that there may
have been hardware or software installed and its just a constant circle
i have come close to smashing the thing to bits in a rage and compaq
have been no help whatsoever as they say i have stepped outside my
even though i reported the initial problem before it was up to thema nd
it seems as though since i tried it the problem has occured
i really am close to my limit with it all now
oh yeah before all this i went to do another system restore and it said
that my hardrive was corrupted so it couldnt so i took the tower in and
had all the hardware tested and everything was apparently working fine
PLZ help as i dont know if the recovery disks turn up that they will do
