So the story goes like this:
I just finished a computer yesterday. Everything worked brilliant and installed some programs and games. Then suddenly in the middle of a game computer crashes. naturally i restart my computer and it tells me that it needs to reboot. So i reboot my computer and everything is seemingly fine, but almost no programs could start. So I reboot my computer a couple of times. But it was still broken. I then go windows' i don't what it's called in english but something like 'Solving center' and it says that there's an error. So i click the button to fix it. Ever since i have never been able to get into windows. I have tried many different solving solutions from a windows cd and the system reserved thing. I then decided that i would reformat my harddrive, but I keep getting error messages showing different errors.

Can anybody help me?

looks like you need to download the manufacturers testing utility and maybe a firmware update.

I am going to do a memtest soon, bare in mind that windows is already long gone.

This is what memtest looks like so far. Without knowing, I think this is bad.

Yea looks like bad memory... what are your BIOS's memory settings most inportant is the voltage and the required voltage of your memory.
