    Hi there, well, first off I'll tell you what I was doing before this started happening, a few minutes ago I was playing World of Warcraft, alt tabbed out, went to start, tryed to open control pannel, then firefox, at this time the computer froze, I had to plug pull to get out.

    I then try to restart my computer, the windows screen comes up, gives me the option to view boot menu, that loads, then moves on to the next screen which is black, looks like command prompt, but all that has come up on the black screen is a "J" in the upper left hand corner.

    Please help, if anyone knows how to... thanks...

    Also, before I froze, I checked on my task manager and my computer had made around 15 copies of one certain .exe files, I'm not sure which, It was something along the lines of Dwcault.exe or something, I'm not sure.

    Thanks again

    Also, when I try to type, it doesn't work, all that happens, is a loud beeping noise when I try.

    Try performing the Memory test it might be due to memory problem.

    I'm unable to do that, as I can't get past this black screen. :(

    Alrighty, I've put in my windows xp cd, and booted from cd, it loads everything, then pops up this blue screen with this error message:

    "A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.

    If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:

    Check to be sure you have adequate disk space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try changing video adapters.

    Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates. Disable memory potions such as caching or shadowing. If you need to use safe mode to remove or disable components, restart your computer, press F8 to select advanced start up options, and then select Safe Mode.

    Technical information:
    *** STOP: 0x0000007E (0xC0000005, 0xF854A0BF, 0XF8996208, 0XF8995F08)

    *** pci.sys - Address F854A0BF base at F8543000, DateStamp 3b7d855c"
