Question Blue screen of death

The problem is that it wont boot up, it gives me a blue screen right after 3 minutes of loading the windows loading logo. ( starting windows) and i cant know what it says because it reboots right away.. it had xp but now i tried installing windows 7 everything went fine with the installation until it was trying to boot up for the first time. it happens the same thing as when xp was installed ( the blue screen and the reboot) .. any ideas?

Can you post your system specs for us? Specifically what RAM you are running.

Also what error(s) the BSoD is giving you.

pro2a, he can't read the BSOD error.

I suspect it is a corrupt windows startup process. Can you get into safe mode? I would try that. Sometimes bootting into safe mode and then rebooting your system fixes it.

Are you running Win 7 64bit or 32bit? I know Win 7 64 bit needs at least 2GB of memory to run properly.

Also one thing that worked for me when I was getting tons of BSDs was to set BIOS back to the default settings and work my way up from there.

i meant i had done it before i posted this.. i am starting to think it has to do with hardware.. maybe ram??? ahh someone??... is there a different way to get the info of the blue screen error? i mean i think that if i could read what that blue screen says it would be much easier to fix this/

Chances are your RAM is bad, especially if XP was giving you issues as well. Is there anyway you can catch and write down the error it is giving you before it shuts off? I had to do that with mine. Usually you have about 5 seconds to catch what it is saying. That would help us in telling you what the issue is.

Basically what you need to grab is the 3rd line...

****WXYZ.SYS - Address F73120AE base at C00000000, DateStamp 36b072a3

That looks like a virus to me.
