    That is the same PC.
    It can boot up in safe mode well enough, Unsure on Normal Mode though, Will try it though again, Would you like me to post the Minidumps from that program for you?, If i can install it

    First stay now, with this thread.

    I'd set the memory page file - back to letting Windows manage it.
    Post the minidumps, if you can.

    PFN_LIST_CORRUPT error from your other post can mean..
    Bad Motherboard - CPU - Memory etc.

    It still seems linked to Video drivers.
    You say that you have updated the drivers [your other post]
    Make sure that the drivers are correct.
    It is showing Windows 2000 drivers - check again that they are the right drivers.

    Run Device Manger
    Start>run>type
    devmgmt.msc

    Any exclamation marks?

    Run a scandisk at startup.
    Right Click My Computer>Open.
    Right click on C: drive>properties.
    Tools>Error checking.
    Check Now>put a tick in both boxes.
    Click Start.

    Windows may say that you cannot check the disk when the computer is in use.
    Click Yes.
    Restart Pc and it will scan on startup.

    This was the error from your previous post.
    0x4E: PFN_LIST_CORRUPT
    As said, from what I have read - it can mean motherboard - CPU - Memory etc.
    How many sticks of Ram are installed?
    Did you run the memory test on each individual stick?

    You ran scandisk - and it did not say that while using Windows, it cannot scan said files?
    Strange.
    Did it run through 1-7 [maybe 9] sections of the disk - and give you a report?

    Check Event viewer.
    Start button>run>type
    eventvwr

    Check under..
    Applications.
    System.

    Added info..
    Info on..
    THREAD_STUCK_IN_DEVICE_DRIVER
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/293078

    Some are suggesting - downloading the newest drivers for the motherboard.

    I did try and do disk check from safe mode via command prompt would that have made a difference?, And also when i try and do a virus scan from safe mode after about 3 mins it shows a IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL BSOD, And also if i try and start up in normal mode the same error occurs, also theres nothing to report from Event Viewer, Nothing Major anyway, Last report was the 16th January, I think my motherboard drivers are up to date but i will check again now via safe mode,

    Try this from..
    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/293078
    'Method 2: Adjust the Hardware Acceleration

    Click Start, click Control Panel, and then double-click Display.
    On the Settings tab, click Advanced, and then click the Troubleshoot tab.
    Move the Hardware Acceleration slider to None, and then click to clear the Enable write combining check box.
    Click OK, and then click OK.

    Note This procedure prevents the graphics adapter from programming the hardware incorrectly, but you may lose some display functionality and performance.
    Although you can increase the hardware acceleration settings higher than None to regain functionality and performance, these settings increase the possibility that the issue will occur again.
    For maximum stability, leave hardware acceleration off.'

    Will it now start in normal mode?

    In Event Viewer - anything showing as an Error or Warning?
    It could be that the Video Card is faulty.

    Because everytime you restart your Pc - a new lot of blue screens appear..
    I'd try reinstalling the operating system.
    Make a note of all the drivers that you may have recently installed - Motherboard-Video-Sound etc.
    And then back up all your needed files, data etc externally.

    But if it is a hardware problem - motherboard - CPU etc - the problems will remain.
    If you have problems accessing the Pc to back up files etc..
    Check.
