Windows vista home premium error blu screen 0.000000a0 (non si spegne si riavvia dopo spegnimento(

I hope I can help, but it might take a little while. The first thing I suggest is to boot up in safe mode, then run anti-virus/malware software. If the virus software finds something, then try to reboot and see if it works. If not, then boot up in safe mode again and try checking for updates on drivers. Usually, at this point, I would check the video drivers first and reinstall from the cd. Sometimes just disabling the driver might work.
open the cpu and remove the RAM clean it with dry cloth and re-insert again.
If you need more help, let me know.

Good Luck. It might take some time to do all the checking, but..without reformatting the drive and reinstalling, it's about as good as it gets.

I'm doing a system restore in Vista home premium and every time i choose a restore point and start the restore it'll go for bout 2-5 minutes then suddenly it'll go to a blue screen VERY fast and says...

Instead of rebooting to safe mode select the option for "Last known working configuration"

Once windows boots to this, presumably working setting, attempt to restore to your desired point again.

If that fails yet again you may opt to restore to a point further back in time if this is a possibility.

If these do not solve the issue please feel free to clarify the problem, why these solutions did not resolve your issue and we will be happy to assist you further.
