I got a HP laptop and 2 days ago i was extracting a file from winrar and all of a sudden my laptop shutsdown and since then i haven't been able to get into windows. it goes to a black screen with the mouse pointer and just keeps restarting to bsod which says IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL. Technical Information: *** STOP: 000000000A (OX000000000000, 0X0000000000002, 0000000000001, 0XFFFFF8000328DB7A) Now i tried hitting F8 going to repair windows and tried system restore but there's no restore point. I can log into command prompt but i don't know what to do. REGEDIT works and i can see all my files and whatnot. Should i use a recovery cd? and if so how can i run it through dos? I really don't know what to do I do not want to format my hard drive as i have lots of important info on this laptop. anyway i can fix this problem I can't log into windows even in safe mode. PLEASE HELP!!!
