Hello, I seem to be having trouble with a computer of mine and thought I would try my luck on here.

This all started happening today, (4/6)

Upon Start up I have no internet access. No drivers are being recognized (graphics,motherboard, CD/DVD driver) and when trying to perform a system restore (to any point) I get a "catastrophic failure".

Eventually I will get a BSOD with Memory Management as its title.

I'm unable to start up in "Safe Mode" when restarting, it wont let me highlight anything but " Start Windows Normally"

I've never seen anything like this before... I'm beginning to think that it could be a virus and not a hardware issue?

Anybody have any suggstions? :(

Things to try:

1) boot to Memtest ( www.memtest.org )

2) hook up a spare drive and install Windows from scratch

3) swap the Power Supply

4) Create an Ubuntu disc and boot to it then use it for a while (if it works fine you likely have a software or hard drive issue with Windows)
