Blue screen crash. Help?
I need a proīs help. I recently had a crash in Windows thatīs left me baffled. I was watching a video on my laptop, when I suddenly heard a wierd noise. I ignored it at first, but it kept creepėng up on me. Eventually, the noise lead to a crash, and the blue screen came up. Hereīs what it said (in brief)
***STOP: oX0000007A (and 4 more successive blocks of numbers (just like this one) but containing a combination of 10 different characters & numbers)
then it wrote
It started to dump physical memory
physical memory dump complete
Through the process, a tapping noise could be heard coming from inside the latop (almost sounded like a clicking clock)
I recently installed a video code called Vp7 from On2 technologies, is that the culprit? I needed to watch a video. Thatīs the only reason I installed it. Other than that, no other installations recently except of course, windows updates.
Another strange occurance, three seemingly harmless programs have added themsevlves to startup. Without my doing. They are
and scardsvr.exe ( i dont recognize this one)
Also, after a few crashes, I decided to enter BIOS (everything looked ok there), and then at one particular boot, the operating system failed to load. I swear I didnīt change any BIOS settings. In fact, on boot, it says BIOS is shadowed now.
What do I do? I canīt load Windows? I canīt even load safe mode. I can only enter Bios, thatīs about it, and it looks normal in BIOS.
I run Windows Home edition
