I get a BSoD when loading windows??????

When I turn the computer ON and it boots up with Windows XP Home Edition, it just all of a sudden flashes up with the Blue Screen of Death, but only for half a second and i cant get a look at it?????

I got no idea whats going on, can someone please help me with easy steps.

I have tried using Safe Mode, and it goes through its precesses, then does the same thing, so I can’t access my computer any way, and i tried using a Live CD of Luit Linux that has been based on DAMN SMALL LINUX, and I cant access my files from Windows XP…..

The only reason im not just formatting it, is because I want to save the files on there because I need them really badly for work…..

CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME PLEASEEEEEE ! ! ! !

Does this sound like a failed Hard Drive?

The computer used to boot up and work, but after a few minutes it would crash and give the blue screen of death. I thought maybe the OS had become corrupted so I deleted the current partition and created a new one so that I could reinstall Windows. However it crashed several times during the OS setup and never finished installing.

I tried using a Linux Live CD (which loads entirely into ram) and it ran fine for hours, it never crashed. I finally tried installing Linux onto the harddrive but it failed as well, now the partition editor in Linux doesn’t even recognize the HD device.

Does this situation sound like a HD failure? A while back I thought it could possibly be the power-supply but now I’m leaning towards the HD. The computer is an EMachine Desktop, bought in 2005.

Blue screen of death windows?

My girlfriend got a vaio laptop about 2 years ago. She had vista home premium on it. She had an auto update downloading and the computer shut off. This completely fried it as vista wouldnt boot, it would go to a black screen with a workable mouse. I tried to reinstall it but something keeps happening. I pop in the CD and push the button to boot from it. In that classic blue screen you used to see on ancient computers where it loads all the files, it is supposed to start up an installation process. Instead, it goes straight to the BSOD (blue screen of death) saying windows shut down to prevent damage to your computer blah blah blah. At first i thought maybe i did something wrong like the wrong OS. I had a 32bit OS and thought maybe hers is 64 bit. However this was not the problem as the same result happened. I live booted linux and completely formatted the partition so its completely blank. The same problem occurred with the BSOD. Does anyone know how i can solve this problem and reinstall the computer? I have CD’s with different OS’s on them and obtaining a certain OS isnt a problem. So please if you can help. Respond in as much detail as you can.
