for some reason, I suddenly started receiving the blue screen one day when I was using Firefox. I had nothing else significant open, and had not recently installed any hardware or software.
it said it if was the first time I received that error, to just restart, which I did. well now the screen pops up on startup, usually right after or during the Welcome screen. I can't even get into Safe mode to try anything, as the blue screen comes up even during bootup to Safe mode.
after a few restarts, the OS actually booted up and I was trying to do a System restore, to see if that would help things. well once I opened the system restore, I get a tray notification saying something to the effect of "Unknown hard error." hard, not hardware.
so the only left I can try is to disable the BIOS caching and shadowing. for the life of me I can't seem to find where I'm suppose to do that in the BIOS setup screen. is there some kind of hidden menu in the BIOS setup?
