    Hi guys

    Hope you can help. Am not a techie so keep it simple please...
    When I got back from work today I noticed the feared BSOD on my home computer screen. Since then I've been trying to restart, try system repair, boot from the Vista cd rom etc... All to no avail.

    First, the BSOD I keep getting is hopefully attached.

    My OS is Vista 32 bit, Dell XPS 420.

    Things I tried:

    1. Reboot - fails each time
    2. Start in safe mode - doesn't work
    3. Try to load last working config, doesn't work
    4. Reboot from Vista Cd-ROM, also doesn't work

    Ok so when I reboot I get the option of starting windows normally or to select windows system restore. Tried the latter and it worked once, but after that it never wants to 'select', I.e. when I try to select it, it just takes me back to the selection screen.

    Am getting somewhat stressed and worried about it. Is there anything you could suggest I try or is this a trip to the repair shop?

    Many, many thanks

    the first thing i would try is typing the error codes (0x00...) into bing and see what comes up. if it's a vista computer, it may be time to reload the os, you have to do this sometimes. if you have a backup of your data, no problem. if you have things you need to get, you can remove the hard drive and place it in another computer and get it that way. it may have been an update causing the error, i have seen that before. we had an update that crashed all our xp computers, talk about a pain, we had over 100,000 nationwide, a lot of them xp. try the error codes first, it may point you in the right direction and save a reinstall.
