Hi I am using a Packard bell laptop and downloaded avast virus protection, not the free version. Then the computer would not shut down, and I got the BSOD. I followed Satish advice by changing SATA from ACHI to IDE. now the computer will not start!!! HELP!

Changing the drive boot order isn't going to solve the issue with BSOD! Change it back, and boot in safe mode, and uninstall it. What OS are you using?

I have no idea what OS is, so I can't tell you what I am using. I am an absolute ignoramus when it comes to this kind of thing, I highly suspect that the avast installation has caused this malfunction. I have thrown it out, but it seems to make no difference

Is there anything I can do when I am in safe mode? I have changed the SATA back to ACHI and am able to now start in safe mode...
