    Hi,

    I was installing the software for a wireless network card. Half way through, windows crashes. When i try to restart, it gets half way to starting windows and then a blue screen comes up wiht the ollowing message:

    ***STOP: 0x0000007B (0xEB81B84C, 0x000000E, 0x0000000, 0x0000000)
    INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE

    I have done all the usual troubleshooting (reseating cables etc), and put the drive in my other computer and tested it, but according to windows and partition magic there is nothing wrong with the drive or the NTFS partition, but the BS still comes up.

    Can anyone help?

    Did you try reseating the RAM? I had a similar situation and it turned out to be the RAM. Replaced it with a new stick and it worked.
