Beware ! Most 9not all) Dell's can only use PSU's from Dell...using another brand may damage expensive components...

    yes, i read about that.

    my friend has a dell like mine(bought 2 months after mine, by the way). i thought because of that, it wouldn't harm my pc.
    and i didn't get a chance to get the psu today, but i had intentions on matching the power supply to my dell 8250. 

    any opinions on the rest of my post?

        sorry it  took so long... been away on business.

        i will try to either buy a power supply tomorrow, or get my friend to let me try his psu in mine.(he has a dell 8250 as well)
        so can the power supply really be bad even though i can run the diagnostics through the cd drive, and accessed the hard drive via DOS? also, what about the talk about a bad motherboard. any truth to that?

        a couple more things:
        -i downloaded avira antivirus on my laptop and ran it on my desktop hard drive (in the external case). it found a couple of "trojans" that are keygens(i had them as 'rar' files forever)

        -do you think a hijackthis scan will help?

        anybody???

        and what about an online virus scan?

        You can post a HijackThis if you wish. I think you should.

        What happened with those Trojans?

          i have hijackthis version 1.99. how do i perform a scan on an external drive?

          the "trojans" are keygens for programs that i wanted to use. i'm thinking the virus scan looked at these keygens as trojans. i had them for months and never had a BSOD, or any problems in all that time.

          HijackThis isn't a malware removal tool. It doesn't scan any drive.

          Not sure if it's been suggested at all, but for virus infections, see here:
          http://www.computerhope.com/forum/index.php/topic,46313.0.html

          Oh, and by the way, the latest version of HJT is 2.0.2. I suggest you update. ;)

            If you suspect a hard drive problem and:

            1) you can't start up
            2) you can't get to the XP Recovery Console
            3) using a hard drive manufacturer program scares you (for some reason)

            ...then I HIGHLY suggest using Windows PE 2.1:

            http://www.msfn.org/board/lofiversion/index.php/t83722.html

            Scroll down to paxamime's post. 

            In a nutshell:

            1) Download the WAIK from Microsoft's site.
            2) Create batch files from that post above.
            3) Run them.
            4) Burn the resulting ISO to CD.
            5) Boot your PC using the disc (make sure you have at least 384 MB of RAM or it'll crap out).
            6) On the command prompt, after "wpeinit", run the following command:
            chkdsk c: /r
            then press Enter.
            7) If it sees EVEN ONE bad sector, it's probably a dying hard drive...

            If you want to back up your data via PE, do the following:

            1) Plug an external hard drive into your PC (preferably big enough to back up the data from your allegedly dying hard drive). 

            2) Start up your computer and boot from the PE disc.

            3) do one of these three things:

            a) run ROBOCOPY from PE.  Use the robocopy /? command if you need help running it.  Most likely the command robocopy c:\ e:\ /e /y should be sufficient (assuming drive E is your external hard drive).

            b) If you have Ghost, copy ghost32.exe to the root of your external hard drive.  Run that using the following commands, pressing Enter after each one:
            e:\
            ghost32
            Now select Local -> Disk -> to Image -> select the source drive -> select drive E -> confirm -> go.

            c) I don't have much experience with this yet, but you could add imagex.exe to your PE, and create a .wim image that contains the contents of your C drive.  Good if you want something like Ghost/Acronis, but don't have the cash to shell out for either of them.

            I'm wondering if I should write a tutorial for using Windows PE here?

            Part of the problem is most people don't generally deal with computer problems. So for most they think that close enough is good enough.

              Carbon Dudeoxide: i've used hijackthis before and i'm very aware it isn't a malware removal tool. how would you term what i want to do?
              at any rate, i'm trying to run hijackthis and any other check on my HD, before i cave in and reformat it.

              killerb255: i've already ran the manufacturer's HD check and everything looked good. and i copied the HD to a separate external HD...just in case :). thanks. any other suggestions?

              i've tried numerous checks on my PC and hard drive and still have the same stop error. i guess i waited long enough. i didn't wanna do it, but if i can't get this error resolved, i may have to reformat my drive.  :(

              So you just want to scan your external drive for any viruses?
              If so, you will need an Antivirus program to do so. (such as Malwarebytes and Superantispyware

              The only reason i asked about hardware is that error message points to a hardware incompatibility issue and or a driver problem...
              Have you installed any new drivers recently ? ?
              If so revert back to the older ones.

              From 4 weeks ago.....

                i haven't installed anything(at least i don't remember doing so). like i said earlier, it seemed too much of a coincidence that after i burned a DVD i got the BSOD on the next boot up. i don't know if that DVD installed anything...

                ok, so if i wanted to revert to any older one...is there a way to do it if i can't boot up the PC?

                  hooray!! i got it started.   :D

                  i got discouraged at the waning responses for my post (maybe because it had been going on for over a month) so i decided to take drastic action.
                  i was at the point of reformatting if this last effort didn't work.

                  i downloaded antivir and ran checks on the drive. And i ran an online virus scan from f-secure. both found trojans. i disinfected some and deleted others. there were a couple of "0ll" files that f-secure found. i googled them and found that they were possible malware, or at the very least, unwanted.  f-secure also found a couple of files identified as the vundo(sp?) virus.

                  ok, now when the pc booted i got a couple of rundll error messages.

                  - error loading c:\windows\system32\lelsjwov.dll  the specified module could not be found
                  - error loading c:\windows\system32\qwkkldqx.dll  the specified module could not be found

                  i closed the windows and tried to go online. it worked. everythiing seems to be in order. i ran a hijackthis scan and here it is:
                  mods: if this is not the right section, let me know, i can start a new post in that section.
