Props on the new forum tricks =) (Making sure I knew what forum I was in, the Prefix, "no similar threads found") I like. Anyway, on to business. Last night, my computer was fine. I closed everything out, put it in sleep mode. This morning, I get up, check my e-mail via Thunderbird, try to do some web surfing on the Internet Explorer 9 beta, and I think that's all I had open when my computer started moving very slowly. Windows Aero turned itself off, and a few moments later I got the BSOD message "KERNAL_DATA_INPAGE_ERROR." I wasn't able to memorize or write down the longer error message in time (is there a way to prolong the amount of time BSOD's show themselves"?). After that, I tried rebooting. A blue screen came up way too fast to read it each time, and the computer tried rebooting again. This kept happening. I tried booting in Safe mode. Now it's been attempting start-up repairs for an hour or two and shows no sign of anything else happening. So I don't think I can reach the dump file. Any idea on what's wrong or what I should do?
