So my computer died last week....
« on: September 12, 2008, 04:38:37 PM »
it died a horrible death, took me a while to get it back up.

Quote from: "eelioittheking"
I installed a program called "Virtual Native Network" onto my version of windows vista because i wanted  an alternative solution to using hamachi for playing LAN games online.  However, during the installation it asked me to allow the installation of a needed driver, which i ok'd.  almost immediately after following this step my PC reboot unexpectedly and rebooted to a big blue error screen.  I am using an Hp pavilion slimline s3421p PC with a partitioned Hard drive with both Ubuntu (which im posting from right now) and vista installed.

I have run all of vista's diagnostic tools, and they have not come up with a solution, and have suggested that i format my Hard drive (which i CANT do.)  I will post a screenshot of the error i am receiving in a second

here is the page i downloaded the app from : [s:j7nmuzlh]removed[/s:j7nmuzlh]

I highly suggest that no one dowloads this unless it is needed for them to help me.

thank you all much in advance.

EDIT: several screenshots.  click to enlarge


grub boots up fine


loads fine here


then i get this screen


blue screen of death shot #1


blue screen of death shot #2


blue screen of death shot #3

Get into ubuntu and torrent a XP cd.
Burn, install, enjoy.

I mean honestly... back when i dualbooted XP and ubuntu, I remember mounting the windows HDD to pull files from it.
This sig is now blank.
