ah, got ya. However, a format is not always the solution. As far as saying his uncle did something, your right... we dont know. No one bothered to try and find out what it was, however since it worked in safe mode that more than likely means a driver issue or a nixed program. There was also no asking of what the BSOD contained. IPF or GPF knowledge would of helped out alot. Just I hate seeing ffr's thrown around when it could be something much easier AND he will get better knowledge of the workings of an o/s. So no, I dont think just throwing a format at someone without finding what is the cause is much help especially when not many questions are asked. My opinion, though.
If you argue with an idiot he will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
