  1. This was in the news earlier today:

    From what i gathered from reading the problem remains unknown. Also ive had the same problem where not even my bios would load, so your not alone.

    If this is your problem, you should have a recent update to windows. If you do, try uninstalling it, or try to go back to a recent restore point.
  3. win update is off,but have managed to restore point,for now.. but dont wanna try to power off computer :) we shall see tomorrow guys thanks
  4. for now its working with system restore :)
    luckily found backup from dvd
    and decided to install fresh copy of windows

    Its true!

    We bought my daughter a gateway laptop with T6600 and windows 7, 3-4 weeks ago from Amaz. model: nv5820u The system was used all week last week, during our thanksgiving vacation, 1100 miles from home. on Monday of this week the system did the BSOD dance. The system was used all week at thanksgiving, the system was used to watch dvd'd in the car on sat and sunday = monday crashed!

    this is the events:

    BSOD, auto recovery failed
    system rolled back auto
    os says: "system roll back failed" - but the system boot back up to the orginal settings on the next restart. no data lost. pesky norton tried to reload - norton should classified a virus!

    So all orginal programs, including norton which we removed, other bloatware was reinstalled. By the way I build high systems, warpedsystems, so i know PC's - also have been subscriber to this magazine for a decade or so -on and off.

    The bottom line is the rumor is true! By the way microsoft, this caused issues with office - our free trial will not work. My daughter was very frustrated last night as see could not get on line wireless and had to use another pc for office.

    i smell a class action lawsuit!
