Hello,

I know I'm new here and am asking for immediate help, but I've seen some people around here and they can help a lot. And I'm kinda in a sticky situation. I have an HP Pavillion DV6408nr. I finished working with it yesterday night, everything went perfectly, then shut it down. Now this morning it seems that whenever I boot it up. It goes to the windows XP loading screen. Then gives me a blue screen, restarts, and gives me a screen for selecting safe mode or not. It say's its due to a power failure. I've tried running it on AC power, no help. Safe mode doesn't work either. Anyone please help? All my critical school files are on there :( The only new thing in there was a pair of brand new ram sticks I got off of ebay. But I got a compablity match from crucial.com and they worked fine for the entire week....
Thanks,
PilotH

Hye

the blue screen generally came from a fatal error, it is possible that your system is corrupt. if you got you xp installation cd try to boot on it and repair your system.

Thanks,
That did the fix. Appreciate it.
Unfortunately, I have to redo about 3 projects in 2 days :(. Better get started!
