Original Title:My computer crashes into a BSOD that quickly disappears as the computer attempts to reboot
I turn my computer on and when it reaches the Windows XP load screen it crashes into a BSOD that quickly disappears as the computer attempts to reboot. The BSOD disappears so quickly there is no way for me to be able to make out the exact error message.
I have tried booting up in safe mode but the crash persists in the same fashion. I also accidentally destroyed my Windows XP installation disk in a move about 5 years ago, so re-installing the OS is not an option without having to dish out for a new XP CD.
Incidentally, this occurred right after my wife began experiencing problems with rogue pop-up windows while on FB. Don't know if there's a connection with the pop-ups (maybe a virus?). Anyone think they could help?
