Hello, I have a Gateway running Vista that has crashed and wont recover. I get the f8 screen with options for three different safe modes. I keep choosing regular safemode, with only the core drivers, and then I get the blue screen of death. Any suggestions?

Could be a number of things. The core drivers could have gotten corrupted and a total reinstall might be necessary. A bad stick of memory could cause BSOD also.

Try doing memtest to check your memory for errors if they check out OK then you might have to just format and start fresh.
