I just had my first BSoD today since I first started using a computer. It appears every time I boot up for no apparent reason and when I try to start in Safe Mode it won't start. When I press the f8 button, it emits a constant beeping sound that only goes away when I press it again. Nothing works including the DVD drive. I did a clean install of Windows 7 on top of my Vista and I've been using it for about a month or so, and foolishly didn't create a system restore point (ugh). I checked for updates the day before and there was a Windows 7 Security Update but I decided to install it later and put it in Hibernate, but started it today and it BSoD'd on me.
I did a system repair but it couldn't fix it so I went through the repair log and found this at the end:
Parameters: 0 x c0000005, 0x85d0abcb, 0x807f4628, 0x807f4200
Repair Action: System files integrity check and repair
Error code = 0x490
Any suggestions on how to get my system up and running again without having to buy another copy and installing it over again? (DVD drive isn't working either...)
