Puppy

I seem to have a problem.

My work machine randomly rebooted itself just after I logged into windows. When it rebooted, it said it couldn't run windows because of a missing or corrupt file in the windows system folder. It told me to get the XP CD and run the repair setup. So we go through all that shit, and get to the repair part, and it bluescreens with this message: "PAGE_FAULT_IN_NON_PAGED_AREA". We tried it again, and got the same error.

It's running XP64 Pro. Any ideas? Need anymore info from me? I can't do anything with this machine down :(

Edit: So far it's been suggested to try reseating the RAM. So I'll have Bow try that first when he comes in.

Huzzah!

My machine is working once more. We gave the damn thing to uath while we left the house and he somehow got it working again before we got back. He said the registry was all screwed up, which could have happened when it up and died when it was booting windows. Still odd but, meh. I'm running a virus scan on it now just incase and I've backed up my important info.

Of course this made me late for the artgrind and I have too much to do now to get back to it :/
