Hardware Error: My Computer is Owning Me
Recently, my computer started giving me the blue screen, listing a hardware error and shuting my computer down. I ignored it. It became increasingly worse, finally ending with a a shutdown that my computer could not recover from. It would give the error everytime I tried to boot, and then restart. Using Safe Mode, I could tell that the error occured at the giveio.sys file (I never actually got to boot into safe mode, but while booting to safe mode it listed the processes it was running. It always stopped at this one).
So, I did the hard thing and wiped my hard drive. I then re-installed my Windows XP, and put all my drivers on. While on the internet and downloading trillian, the computer failed with the same error, and began its error during boot up (Though now, the error always occurs durng mpps.sys or mups.sys [I'll check again later]).
Now, I'm dreading the thought, but this may be hardware related. All my warrenties are void (overclocking and aftermarket cooling), and I don't have the funds to fix the problem. I've tried re-sitting the RAM, switching its socket, pulling my modem and CD-ROM (The only non-essential to boot devices I have), and yanking all but the most important power cords. Nothing works. However, the fact that it worked after Windows was re-loaded troubles me. I really don't know what to do.
ANd no, I can't find the error. The blue screen dosnt stay up long enough for me to see it.
Please help me, I am in dire need of aid.
