Hi. I'm using Compaq HP Presario M2000
and when i turn on the pc, i log in, then suddenly it got the bsod.
I'm now using its safe mode.

I want to know how to fix it but keep all my files .
Can i reinstall windows xp and save my files ?

I dont have external harddrive so i cant make backup. :horrified

Thanks in advance. :thanks

Technical info:

*** STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, 0xB89A98D3, 0xF7403968, 0x0000000)

*** 00001FDC = Address B89A98D3 base at B89A9000, DateStamp 49c97a84

Something like that

nothing before that in caps? Like for example IRQL_NOT_EQUAL_OR_LESS?

I don't think so, it just say the usual stuff.
It didnt say anything about missing file.

Try restarting the PC, tap F8 until you get to safe mode etc: select Last known good configuration - If that doesn't work, start in safe mode- run system Restore back to when it was going OK.

To enter restore: Click Start, All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click System Restore. System Restore starts.

Select a time/Day that it was going OK - let restore run - See if it will start normally.

That error message basically means corrupted drivers or hardware problems.

Has windows done any update - or have you installed anything then it played up ?

Test the ram with something like memtest

I already tried the last known configuration and system restore, both
doesn't work.

I had a virus that canceled my fast user switch
So I used a registry file that fixes my fast user switch.

But the next time i start windows , the bsod happens.
I think that's the problem.

What was the name of the virus you had? It may have installed a driver / file thats causing the crash. It may help if you post a hijackthis log, if you can. Boot into safe mode / networking, get hijackthis, install / run it, click on scan the system and save a log. Copy and paste the log here

Or get trojan remover below if the PC youre on isnt 64 bit. Install it update it in safe mode / networking. Then click on scan. Then select all options under the utils menu. If it finds anything, let it remove it then reboot

I agree wtih Wainutech, but if his method fails and you want to do a clean install id recommend windows vista becuz vista saves your old hard drive under the title OLD DRIVE, and you can simply go there and all your old stuff like songs, movie, photos, etc. will be there. thats what i did a couple of time when i couldnt remove my stuff becuz of shut downs or viruses. Well, hope it helps. Good Luck. :)
And if it doesnt, im sorry. Just trying to help. :)

Eh? You don't need to buy vista just to do that...?!
